Put your boot on their throat until you hear the death rattle.

A friend of mine who works at the joe just called me. She said that he was skating this morning, and was skating about full speed. She did note that he was not in full gear which would be expected but he looked good. Shes no idiot when it comes to hockey either so this is good news.

You have the best news. I choose to believe YOU

#2143153 Unbelievably bad goal.

The "We can't disprove it didn't cross the line" comment is a LIE. It's more CYA for an on-ice official's blown call.

Anyone with working eye sockets could plainly see it never crossed the line. That shouldn't be hard to overturn IF you're not playing CYA.

Let's all agree Bob Errey would have been #51

#2141892 If there was one F/D/G you could add to the team, who would it be?

Posted by Jersey Wing on 04 April 2011 - 03:47 PM

F -- Ovechkin. Imagine telling him he has no pressure on him and just go play. Imagine THAT result.

D -- Weber. For reasons already discussed

G -- Luongo. He's so big you'll always be able to see him on the bench as he backs up the Great Jimmeh Howard

As much as I love Ken and Mickey and Hot Dog Murphy calling the games I was happy to get a game on Center Ice with Rick Jeanerette and Harry Neale. The Buffalo broadcast spent quite a bit of time pointing out how the Wings are a first class organization and what they do to keep it that way. Neale pointed out the biggest difference that sets Detroit apart is that you've had a lot of guys around the dressing room to show younger players and players traded in or free agent signings HOW to play Red Wings hockey and how to be a Red Wing. He specifically mentioned Stevie, Igor, Shanahan, Draper, Lidstrom and Konstantinov as guys who would pull you aside if you strayed a bit. When they talk you listen was his point. A great line of leadership succession other teams don't see.

Ken Daniels on the Flyers and Rangers? I'd say NBC has made up their minds who will succeed Doc Emerick one day

#2119030 2011 possible deadline trades?

Posted by Jersey Wing on 19 February 2011 - 12:04 PM

Maybe a depth defenseman is all I see as a skater need. Modano coming back and having Datsyuk, Filppula, Cleary and others having some time off this regular season I see no need for panic. Like I said, maybe a 6-7-8 defenseman on the cheap.

That being said, the goaltending sticks in my craw. I have no problem with Jimmy. He'll either get it done or he won't. I worry about Ozzie's groin/hernia surgery nagging issues if Howard falters ala Hasek in 2008

I stayed up until 4 AM this morning to rewatch this game. I caught the last 7 minutes after the Wings game last night. FANTASTIC. Sometimes this kind of untoward, churlish, deranged, immature behavior brings fans to their feet while screaming and makes guys like me stay up until dawn to watch what I missed the first time.

And yet pucks still manage to go between his giant legs into his net

#2104347 ASG Starter "to stay home" due to injury

Posted by Jersey Wing on 24 January 2011 - 02:04 PM

NO, sorry, it's time Bettman has to get grief for his double standard.

Bettman made this all about 'showing up' last year. The NHL had no issue with Lidstrom and Datsyuk not playing (and Pavel was every bit as injured and unable to go as Crosby this year), it was about showing up. We heard that ad nauseum from the NHL as to why the suspensions HAD to happen.

So, concussion or NOT, Crosby has to go or be suspended.

There is NO middle ground here per Gary Bettman. Don't like my viewpoint? Call the NHL...

1) Heal the team and go into playoffs healthy and rested
2) Wreak destruction on rest of NHL with healthy playoff roster
3) Parade

#2093371 Crosby Out with Mild Concussion

Posted by Jersey Wing on 08 January 2011 - 12:21 AM

I had a mild concussion once. I had this terrible awful dream that I was in my 20's, making millions of dollars and still living in Mario Lemieux's basement

#2093359 Who would have thought?

They've played well, very well. Smart too. Now Tatar, Kindl and Mursak have played long stretches to hit the wall where they look like they're skating in sand but boy, it sure warms the cockles of my heart to see such a strong future mixed with a great veteran presence. Learn youze kids, learn...

They call him Tatar Salad
