#2483242 Official 2014 Olympic Hockey Thread (Admin warning #316)

Posted by SDavis35 on 10 February 2014 - 06:29 PM

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.

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. 

#2479006 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by SDavis35 on 30 January 2014 - 04:37 PM

Who:  Dave Tippett

Why:  He's the best coach in hockey.


For some reason I was going to object, but then I realized I was thinking of Alain Vigneault and not Dave Tippett. 


Although I think Hitchcock deserves consideration as well.

Edit: not my gif


I thought I had imagined that when there was no big deal made on FSD. Glad I'm not crazy! 

#2459072 Shea Weber leaves game with Injury

Posted by SDavis35 on 28 November 2013 - 10:56 PM

Well,i'm bummed out now,not only did the preds lose to the oilers 3-0,but now we lost our captain.



This is the life of a preds fans


At least you can come to sympathetic and (sometimes) respectful wings fans! 


Hate the puck to the face injuries though... Hopefully it's not as bad as it seemed. 

#2452989 11/12 GDT : Jets 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Zetterberg n Datsyuk really havent been producing. Id say their best years are obviously behind them.

Next year resign our top stars. Cleary-Sammy-Quincey. Hello Stanley Cup. And its that easy folks.


Read that first line and thought you were another nay-sayer... that second line cleared things up. 

#2450119 Helm in, Franzen out against the Oil tonight!

Posted by SDavis35 on 02 November 2013 - 03:36 PM

why would he be out if it weren't for poor play? Plenty of other bottom sixers that would normally and usually get sat out for a returning player... Usually Franzen dtsys in. I hope this is a long benching....


Could still be feeling sick after leaving last night's game? 

#2449423 Franzen believes hes playing well.

Posted by SDavis35 on 01 November 2013 - 10:16 AM

Well, 2 for 2 is fairly effective... 

#2421773 Hypothetical - Crosby soon to be a Wing. Who do you give up?

Posted by SDavis35 on 24 June 2013 - 02:22 PM

My decision is to walk out of the office. I just can't justify any of those trades, regardless of the fact that it's the best player in today's game. 

#2416260 Wow... Danny Cleary

"Holland also said today that Jimmy Howard played with a pulled hamstring at the end of the Anaheim series."


Another warrior for us. I know it's not as serious as some of the other injuries, but to play as well as jimmy did says a lot. 

#2407102 WCSF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Blackhawks 1 - (Series Tied at 1)

Posted by SDavis35 on 18 May 2013 - 10:01 PM

I don't remember any specific plays that were blatant penalties by the Wings that got overlooked. If you have the puck and are controlling play more, the less likely you are to commit infractions. Toews should know this on a puck possession team.

This was just one team being far better than the other. The refs influence outcomes all too often in the NHL these days, but it's silly to claim a little physical play prevented Chicago from winning. Toews doesn't care that Shaw skates around like an idiot though nearly every shift?


CBC was replaying the "should've been called" highlights several times, and Zetterberg was rough on Toews, but nothing that deserves a playoff penalty (probably not even a regualr season call). It's a part of the game, Holmstrom made a career off taking far worse clobberings. 

#2402018 WCQF Game 6 GDT : Ducks 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT) - (Series Tied 3-3)

Posted by SDavis35 on 10 May 2013 - 11:35 PM

OH MAN! I was on the NHL site RIGHT before coming here and it said Anaheim won the series 4-2.... Way to give me a heart attack!


Haha, not only did we beat the Ducks tonight, we also beat the NHL! :P 

#2393152 WCQF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1, at Ducks 3. (Anaheim leads, 1-0)

Posted by SDavis35 on 01 May 2013 - 12:36 AM

That being said, YES. The Ducks are not a scary team. 2 Powerplay goals & an open netter. Half our team played their 1st playoff game. Mule & Abby need to bring what they did last week. if that happens & we stay out of the box, we'll be alright


Don't count on that one... the way the refs were calling penalties tonight it's anybody's guess when they'll make the call. We got away with several, Ducks got bad calls, Wings could've had a couple more PPs and the penalties that were missed were atrocious! Then they call little ones as if they're trying to please the fans... make the right call the first time! It's elementary my dear (Brad) Watson! 


As for the way we played... sloppy all around. I like the third line still and don't want to screw with that, but Filpulla needs to show up. Howard did okay, he wasn't really tested a whole lot until late game. He also didn't look like last week's goaltender. Z and Dats were totally neutralized, but I expect them to bounce back (as I do with Howard).  If not for the really bad penalties, I think we could have squeaked out a win, the teams showed they're equals, the difference was the momentum killing Tootoo trip and Kindl's delay of game.
