#2417376 Wings interested in Stalberg and Bickell

Posted by jollymania on 03 June 2013 - 03:13 PM

One of those is an NHL fight. Like E, Bickell doesn't seem interested in fighting at the NHL level. That is fine- he isn't a fighter (because he rarely fights) and he doesn't have a good record against NHL fighters.

 

With the two more playoff games played, Bickell has 17 fewer hits than Abby during the 2013 playoffs. Bickell can hit well, but he isn't a frequent hitter.

 

If Cleary is not re-signed and Bert is bought out, Bickell makes sense (if Clowe and Clarkson aren't available). However, that isn't likely to happen. Signing Bickell will also be a gamble- outside of these playoffs he hasn't proven enough to be a ~3m/yr player IMO.

He can fight, proven by those videos. And even if he doesn't fight alot he can be coached to fight at the right times. It is clear he knows what he is doing. Bickell is obviously heating up in the playoffs and it occurred when he started playing with a physical edge. And regardless what he gets he will be an asset to this team who needs a younger, tougher big forward.

Cooke hit was a penalty but not dirty at all. Crosby was a total ***** at the end of that period crosschecking rask.

Had to mute nbcsn. Can't believe there was  company mandate to have the station be a chicago homer station.

Hawks had good matchups ad the wings fell into the matching trap. Simple as that, they wont have to deal with it next game and wont make the same mistake in game 7 if it occurs. Hawks are on the edge of elimination, game 5 is going to be their hardest push i think.

Brunner actually even made a hit last night. Funny stat Kane has 0 hits in the playoffs. Brunner should fight him.




#2408829 Should we bring Tootoo in for game 4?

Posted by jollymania on 21 May 2013 - 10:11 AM

I thought before this series he should at least draw in for one game just to be a missile out there and bruise up/fluster any hawk he sees. Players like tootoo are the bane of the hawks existence.

Brendan SMith does not belong in the NHL, it is so painful seeing him fail at this level.

Unbelievable reffing, and Edzo condones it acting like Abdelkader shouldn't have gone for the hit.




#2401019 Alberta Peewee Hockey Bans Body Checking

Posted by jollymania on 10 May 2013 - 02:34 PM

Problem is nobody teaches these kids how to check or how to take/avoid one. And kids at that age aren't out there to kill one another I would be willing to bet 90% of those injuries come from illegal checks or situation where the player being hit was unprepared.

God damn InBev...




#2399365 Things that Shanny missed.

Posted by jollymania on 08 May 2013 - 02:02 PM

The elbows that went unpunished are a joke when compared to the clean Abdelkader and Gryba hits. THe NHL is basically saying you can throw cheapshots but god forbid you hit a guy cleanly with force.
