#2584155 3/22 GDT : Blues 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by SDavis35 on 22 March 2015 - 02:46 PM

I guess it all depends on how you see it then, lol.


I watched the recap again, and I saw the same thing that I saw before.  His stick breaks in two, and he immediately slides his hand down to hold the two pieces together so he can tap the puck in.


Only Abby truly knows though...  :)


2 things to note about the winner: 


1- NHL probably has it in their mind the goal is unreviewable (whereas I think all goals should be) 

2- The only point where I see the stick clearly broken is after he makes contact with Allen's pads, at that point the stick is awkwardly bent (thus broken imo) neither the refs, nor abby would have the reaction time to identify that as a broken stick before the puck went in. I think it would be unfair to call it back. 


2 things about the officials 

1 - The linesmen were absolutely brutal! 

2 - the amount of interference let go by both sides was VERY interesting. It wasn't subtle at all. 

#2576380 Once again blowing a lead and giving up 3 goals

Posted by SDavis35 on 28 February 2015 - 08:17 PM

13-1-0 when leading after 1 

21-0-3 when leading after 2

9-6-1 when trailing after 1 

9-11-2 when trailing after 2 (we have the best point % when trailing) 


Yes, the 3 goals against is concerning, but we are finding ways to win when leading. It's not always pretty, but we get it done. If you ask me, we are a team that relies on the intermission to get refocused and ready to go. 

#2575712 Red Wings Road Fans Appreciation

Posted by SDavis35 on 27 February 2015 - 08:12 PM

I'm not sure if it was just because we only get one game in the West coast cities, or if our fans were just really into games lately, but I've noticed an awesome trend of some great road crowds this past month and more. Just wanted to say I love hearing the crowd cheer for us at road games, specifically Dallas, Arizona, Colorado and even last night was a pretty good road cheer. Great to be a part of such an enthusiastic fanbase!

#2567568 1/31 GDT : Islanders 1 vs. Red Wings 4

Just did a standings check. 3 teams in the division are on pace for 110+ points and Rangers (the last Wild Card) are on pace for 103 points. Is this abnormally high? It seems like it is.

This was the first time in years that I've actually supported Canada winning, but I feel bad for the Russians right now, goalies aren't getting the job done. 


Edit: I take it back, this game is now interesting.

But bettman said we have the best refs in pro sports


Of course they do, they have more wins than any other officials, except maybe the NBA.

#2530606 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by SDavis35 on 08 July 2014 - 01:27 PM

I only hope he brings scoring to the team; imo it's the offense from our defense which is a reason we couldn't score most of last season.

Hamilton AND two Toronto teams? I'm not so sure about that...

#2507620 bashing skid the kid

Posted by SDavis35 on 09 April 2014 - 10:45 AM

He's been "shoved down our throats" because he's been consistently the best player in the league.  He had all the pressure in the world put on to him to save a franchise, and he delivered. He scored the gold medal winning goal for Canada.  He's won the Stanley Cup.(on the ice at Joe Louis...ouch!) I can see why that pisses people off.   Datsyuk was whining last night when he thought a call wasn't made against him.  Big deal.  Every player does it.  Does he do it more than other players?  Maybe.  So what?  Players do what they can to get an advantage.  I'm sure no Red Wing has ever dove or faked an injury to try and draw a penalty, EVER.


So all the "outrage" is over one anonymous poll from 5 years ago when he was 21?  If that's what gets you worked up, have at it. 


The only issue I have with Crosby was him not following the proper handshake protocol after winning the Cup.  I think Canadians would have went bats*** crazy if a European player had done the same thing.  Otherwise, I just don't like Crosby because he plays for another team and he's good.  Nobody really hates players on other teams that suck.


I'm with you on this one... Crosby from 5 years ago I hated because he was diving and whining and acting like an entitled brat. He's matured, he is a far better player now than he was then, and since that concussion took him off the radar, I've cooled off about him. Now, he's just a very good player who is embellishing just as much as the next guy. He's just a better person than he was, that doesn't mean he's in the league of class like Zetterberg, Yzerman and co. Crosby is just another player in the league who is really good, and I just don't get bent out of shape by his antics anymore. 


Although, I assume over the next three weeks though, I will be hating him all over again. 

#2496152 3/16 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 4

Posted by SDavis35 on 17 March 2014 - 10:06 AM

Roenick nailed it last night post game.

Fact is, we have no talent. You can't plug 3rd and 4th liners on the top lines and expect it to work, as the 3 goals in last 4 games illustrates.

Guys like Nyquist and Tatar are future solid 3rd liners, but let's face it, they're no superstars. The only prospect that has superstar potential is Mantha.

Even if we let all the old guys go in the off season, I don't see us doing much better next season. It will be a mix between declining vets and 3rd line kids....

Don't know how we are gonna get better anytime soon.


Guys like Nyquist and Tatar are close to scoring 20 goals this season. Nyquist as a top liner has more goals than Zetterberg in fewer games. I'm not saying they're future superstars like Zetterberg/Datsyuk, but they're going to be really good players for many years. We need to have a top line though, Nyquist-Franzen-Alfie are second line guys right now. 


This team is working hard, doing good things but has no finish. When you get good chances you need to finish them, that's why we're in the spot we are. The players are a part of the issue, but next year they will all be better. We need leadership from guys who can get the job done offensively, and those guys are injured. We have a seriously good team when healthy, easily top 3 in the division. I'm looking forward to our future team, cause these guys are fun to watch.

What a game! It was tons of fun watching the defensive battle. Hate Healy though... he's worse than pierre by far. He was whining about the penalties against Canada, even though all the penalties were legit for both sides. 


Good game USA, that should have been for gold.

Disco Dan and Laviolette are probably laughing at Czech's coach for constantly sending Červenka-Plekanec-Jagr to match the Backes line up :lol:

Parise 4:1 another short side goal blew by Pavelec


The Czech coach has been incompetent every game I've watched. It's like all he does is stand there behind the bench and watch the players go.

I don't care....for once I can say DAVID BACKES IS ON OUR TEAM!!!  WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!


One of my favourite non-wings players... too bad I can't say the same. 


I'll have some pride for the Canadians, but I like to watch how the Wings' players do in these tournaments. I won't be cheering for the USA unless they have Howard in net though. 

#2482561 Jimmy Howard's New Olympic Mask

Posted by SDavis35 on 08 February 2014 - 01:57 PM

Lol he will more than likely get a game...


of the (up to) 7 games the USA will play; 4 are elimination. Miller will likely be the #1, Quick #2, Howard doesn't have the starpower of the other two and will likely play only if Miller or Quick fail to play well.
