#2447209 Edler Suspension Aftermath.

Posted by T.Low on 23 October 2013 - 12:15 PM

In my opinion, no he did not target the head.

The problem is, Edlers most successful option is to get there first and block Hertls path to the puck. But of course Hertl is leading with his head so any contact could very well be head contact

If Edler would have gone straight for the puck, then he would have taken the brunt of the impact. I can't see that play being taught any other way.

This is why it will be virtually impossible to get head contact out of the game. Head shots maybe. Head contact, No way.

As bad as it was to have the amway pyramid scheme associated with the Wings, I always like to remind people that it could have been worse.  Just look at who the Blues' sponsor is...  Yikes!

Evil pyramid scheme is much better than Monsanto, a company which, imho, personifies evil incarnate.

Filpulla just killed his contract demands. He may have sent himself packing.

#2386843 Bruins/Pens game tonight postponed

You don't have to be Alex Jones to believe this whole Boston fiasco is BS. A 19 year old kid with no military experience flees a shootout, dodging bullets, while travelling in a Honda Civic with the license plate "Terrroist-1"? And then we're told that 2 years ago the Russians had told the US about this kid who was going to blow s*** up, but then apparently they didn't know who this guy was when his name spread around? 


And why hell is the entire country applauding the Boston PD? This 19 year old kid held the entire city hostage for 48 hours. Christ.

#2352086 Desjardin match penalty on clean hit against Mayers

Posted by evilzyme on 06 February 2013 - 04:18 PM

That's what I'm worried about, with the way this season has been, he is for sure going to get tossed with one of his hits.


I agree on this play, no contact to the head.  Even IF there was contact, it requires two things to receive a suspension for an illegal check to the head.  1) Principal point of contact must be the head. 2) Head must be targeted.  Not one of these, but BOTH of these criteria must be satisfied to receive a suspension.  In turn, I believe these same factors should define an 'illegal check to the head'.


Edzo complaining about a 'blindside hit', which is not in the criteria for this rule.  It's not the blindside that makes it dangerous.  It's the principal contact and targeting of the head that do.




Edzo.... the only words/phrases he can actually say are the following: chicago, blackhawks, chicago blackhawks, toews, amazing 2010, 2010 was the best season, oh my god look at kane, kaner!, look at those hawks, wowzer those hawks are looking good this year, man i love chicago, chicagos a great city, how about those hawks?

Islanders claim goalie through waivers.  Goalie refuses to play.

Islanders trade for defenseman.  Defensman refuses to play.

Islanders get a top-five pick.  Top-five pick requests to be traded.

Better to be involved in that kind of mass beat down than in the one that occurred in St. Louis tonight.

When Dallas falls out of the playoff race by February maybe Kenny can trade for him.

#2315552 Optimism, chill people. we have options

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 05 July 2012 - 08:59 AM

Last year's showing was a really miserable one from the Red Wings, it reminded me of the days back in 2003-2007 when I used to go crazy in these forums. Eventually they turned things around however and won a Cup in 2008! Missing out on Suter was a bad blow for sure. I was feeling very optimistic of the chances of landing him. Not sure what options are out there right now, but clearly Kronwall will have to step up big next season. I know he can.

Overall I still like the defensive group including Kronwall, White, Quincey and Smith, although Kindl and Ericsson have a lot too prove. The forwards group leaves a lot too wish for though. When Helm went out, the Red Wings had absolutely no speed coming out of the neutral zone. I think Zetterberg, Datsyuk and Hudler were the only ones that were dangerous offensively. I hope Kenny can put together an attractive package of Franzen and Filppula and trade for more speed, scoring and size. Franzen has proved himself too streaky last couple of years and Filppula seem incapable of producing in the post season.

It will be interesting to follow what happens this offseason, and to see what team the Red Wings will ice next season. Nash would be an exciting player to watch in Detroit, but I dont see that happening. Maybe the chance is slightly greater that Ryan will find himself wearing red and white, who knows, right? At least I hope to see a line of Abdelkader-Helm-Tootoo out there making things hard on the opposing team. I'm also very excited about Smith!
