#2328948 2012 Lockout Watch

Posted by datterberg1340 on 15 September 2012 - 11:17 PM

well here we are again

I hope the NHLPA gets the idea out of their heads that they'll actually 'win' the lockout, the owners will get pretty much what they want in the end, that's what happened last time and it will happen again

all the players are really doing is prolonging the inevitable and wasting possibly a whole year of their careers in the process

it's a sad situation, but the rich will always lose out to the even richer

#2323475 Your thoughts on Sergei Fedorov

Posted by datterberg1340 on 01 August 2012 - 09:11 PM

Fedorov was my favorite player when I first started watching hockey in '96, and he will always be remembered fondly overall for all that he did for the organization and fans, but I still would have to say no to having his jersey up in the rafters; he would have needed a better work ethic and have been less of a prima donna, plus, as others have already pointed out, the manner in which he left in '03 will be a source of animosity for many

shame it ended the way it did, he was never the same player after that, and no matter how many times I saw him play on other teams, he always looked so out of place in other teams' jerseys, I don't know it just always looked strange to me to see him not wearing the winged wheel

I mean could you have imagined Yzerman wearing a Ducks jersey? or Lidstrom in a Flyers sweater? or even Shanahan in a Rang... oh wait, nevermind

I haven't had a beer in nearly 2 full years.

As for the rest of it, I bet you don't get upset when seeing the complete lack of passion out there on the ice. Temper tantrum? :lol:

Sure thing, you're probably the one kicking the wife and throwing the cat around.


all's I know is if we lose tonight I'm slapping my cat then sending my wife shopping to get me that JUCKf****** POTT!

Can't believe Howard is getting a pass here.

If he doesn't give up that 2nd goal, I think we comeback and win this game. The JLA was rocking after that Hudler goal. Howard killed the momentum. Yeah the D screwed up the coverage, but he didn't have to join them. I still don't know what he was doing.


that was a huge gaffe by all involved giving up that goal, probably the most embarrassing play I've seen in a long time, but this team is so fragile mentally that I doubt we would have won anyway

we HAD to score the 1st goal and failed to do that for the 3rd time in 4 games

we looked more like a team built for the pre-season rather than a squad put together to challenge for the Cup

I hope the complacency doesn't continue much longer, the whole team looks indifferent out there, like they're all in some sort of trance

we had things going good after Game 2, now we're facing elimination and may win only 1 playoff game this year, pretty awful turn of events

Nashville basically just waited for us to f*** up, and f*** up we sure did, that first goal they had waived off should have counted, so really it should have been even worse than it was

wow lots of things to fix during the fast-approaching off-season, I thought we would at least win 1 home game this series but that is looking very doubtful


#2287948 WCQF Game Three GDT : Predators 3 at Red Wings 2

We make the same mistakes...game...after game...after game...after game....and nothing is ever changed or done about it. We start off slow...we take too many stupid penalties...we leave guys wide open...we give up too many scoring opportunities....you'd think after about 2 seasons of doing this the Coaches would catch on and adjust as needed. But I guess that's asking too much....


I don't think Babcock is a bad coach, but he should not be Detroit's coach any longer, he can't get through to his players anymore and the 2 green assistants haven't helped much; the problem is who can we find that's available that would do a better job?

My view of the game:

Absolutely ridiculous calls BOTH ways by the refs. Some of the penalties weren't even penalties. Why does this stupid ref s*** happen in round one every year? It's like they decide to call everyf****** thing in the Wings series (don't know if it goes on in the other round 1 series the past several years).

The wings weren't that bad, but they had 1 bad defensive play that cost them the game winner. Otherwise they matched Nashville I thought. The wings still aren't playing like they can. They didn't get much of anything on Rinne. On the rare occasion they got second shots on goal they almost scored or did score. They really have to pressure more. They better steal game 2 otherwise there will be a lot of panic. We are better at home but we have been losing home games as well.

Nashville isn't that great of a team in my view. They're scrappy but they aren't a 'great' team by any means. They're no vancouver-like team.

It's frustrating to watch every 2 or 3 minutes another penalty being called. The refs have GOT to use discretion. It was ridiulous.


absolutely agree

I bet Torts is saying to himself, "It was worth it."

I am confident the Sharks will pass the Stars, which means we would play them if we finished in 6th place. We all know what happens when we play the Sharks in the playoffs.


we keep up this kind of play and it won't matter who we match up against
