In Topic: Unforced icings

Yesterday, 11:51 AM

I'd say they have at least 15-20 unforced icings a game. Say the wings win 50% of those faceoffs that's almost 10 extra offensive posessions for their opponent a game while the wings are losing possible posessions in the offensive zone. It's frustrating to watch, and I basically count it as a turnover even if they win the ensuing faceoff.

LOL. You're not even in the ballpark. Wings have 18 icings so far in the series. Can't determine forced/unforced, but I'd say most icings tend to be unforced. TB has 12.


You can find the info in the play by play reports on NHL.com. Far too much work to go through the whole season, much less to do so for the whole league.


Like most other stats, I would assume the Wings are between a bit above or a bit below average.

Drove past there this afternoon, didn't notice anything. Not sure they'd be doing anything noticeable that quickly though, and I tend to ignore the blight areas when I go downtown anyway.


That said, it's ridiculous that any kind of city improvement could be held up on account of those two eyesore hotels. Abandoned for decades. Plain, boxy, boring architecture. "Historic" primarily because no one has had the means and motivation to tear them down in the last 40 years.

'95 series against Chicago was a great one. 3 OT wins. Game 5 especially awesome. Belfour was unreal until the last goal. Plus, anything that ends with a sad Jeremy Roenick is great.


The demolition of the Sharks in the 2nd round that year was fun too, though you need to watch the 94 series first for the full "gratifying revenge" effect.


Crashing back to Earth against NJ was much less fun to witness.

End of the AHL regular season today. Pulkkinen lead the league in goals, despite playing only 46 games. Also apparently the highest PPG in the league.


Congrats Teemu!

Tbh who cares what Seguin did off the ice I would've traded Krejci, Bergeron and Seguin 1 2 punch up the middle could've won them many cups

If you assume Seguin would have emerged the same way if he'd stayed in Boston, they'd certainly be better off, though I don't know that I'd go as far as that. Too many variables in winning a Cup.


But in defense of the trade, keep in mind that Eriksson was an extremely good player in Dallas. Three straight 70+ pt seasons before a down year in 2013. And he was only 27 at the time I think. His failure to produce in Boston is what makes that deal so lopsided now. Two of Seguin's three seasons in Boston were less than impressive, so I don't think it's a given that he'd be producing the same way.
