#2583675 Jordin Tootoo's Goal

Posted by 55fan on 21 March 2015 - 10:30 AM

That was a nice goal.  I've been watching some Devils hockey since he went there.  I can't believe that we couldn't find a place for him when he was here.  He does much more than just pester and fight.




#2577529 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 02 March 2015 - 01:13 PM

Bill Roose saying two picks?
 
The Wheel Deal ‏@Bill_Roose
#RedWings have landed a right-handed shooting D-man, Marek Zidlicky from NJD for 2015 conditional second-rounder and 2016 third-rounder.

We don't have a second rounder this year, so he's gotta be wrong.


#2577431 Is East just as good or better than West this year?

Posted by toby91_ca on 02 March 2015 - 12:40 PM

Since trades are at a bit of a lull right now...

 

The top 6 teams in the East are all over 80 points and only 3 teams in the West are at that level.  Is this mostly due to more high end and low end teams in East vs. more parity in the West?

 

For what it's worth, East vs. West games have been almost a dead heat....with the West having a very slightly better win percentage (175-130-42 for East vs. West and 181-140-35 for West vs. East).

 

Maybe it's just me....but I haven't really noticed any big and scary, consistently dominating West teams yet this year.  Nashville is the obvious team to point to (1st overall), but for some reason I just don't see them as dominating....maybe that's just history and I'll just need to get used to it...we'll see.




#2538761 Blast from the Past

Posted by Son of a Wing on 07 October 2014 - 01:08 PM

Ha yes those are him rrasco and yes he had a pretty rockin mustache for most of his career . lol

 

I was born after his hockey career was over but have a ton of Red Wings memorabilia including old programs and tons of pictures and a bunch of international keepsakes while he played for Canada and the London Lions in Europe.

 

Many are the items international teams exchange with each other before/after games.

 

Also if you don't know about the London Lions, I'd recommend checking them out.  It's a cool part of Red Wings history.

You can order any name you want on a jersey/sweater like those dorks who have their own names put on them.

Watching the wings tank would slowly kill my soul. 




#2478623 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 28 January 2014 - 11:08 PM

Westgarth is useless. I keep hearing I want a Kocur, I want a Probert or a McCarty. All those guys were extremely effective. They didn't just go out there and start stuff. Kocur was one of the best defensive forwards in the league in his hay day. Probert could have scored 40 goals, McCarty played in every situation.

The point is you want an effective 4th line. We have a good start with Glendening as the center. Now get him some decent sized wingers. Penalty kill, energy, physical play, and great D. That's what your 4th line should be all about.

Good one lol

Good one lol

Mitchell Callahan would do nicely and throw Abdelkader on the other wing and you have an energy line that hits like the grind line of old.

We need a legitimate enforcer and a scoring powerforward imo. A powerforward is virtually impossible but I would settle for a skilled hard working guy like Callahan, Dubinsky or Matthias. The latter is perhaps a possibility as he seems to struggle a bit lately.


#2471471 Look who's top in GR scoring

Posted by rrasco on 09 January 2014 - 11:27 AM

He's been called that for a few years now, by a few different posters

 

Yeah man, you should just read the forums more if you don't know everybody's nicknames.  Or you could have just looked at the stats for the Griffins...




#2471446 Look who's top in GR scoring

Posted by Andy Pred 48 on 09 January 2014 - 05:49 AM

Dirty Harry scored his team leading 14th goal for the Griffins last night and seems to be making a strong case for a job on the Wings next season. He has cut down on his pims considerably and has actually shown the coaches he can play as well as agitate.

A fourth line of Sheahan Tootoo and Callahan looks an intriguing one which may just happen.




#2393831 Eller Destroyed

Posted by jollymania on 02 May 2013 - 07:45 PM

Gryba connects shoulder to chest, Eller gets koed and his head slams on the ice causing rivers of blood. Gryba ejected for interference, puck clearly touched Eller's stick. No Hit League. Video to follow.

another embarrassing call. There was nothing high, vicious, illegal at all about this hit.

With education comes change

What education? Players need more education to not put themselves in the situations to get injured. None of these hits were egregiously dirty.




#2372090 NHL penalties/suspensions for hits getting out of hand.

Posted by jollymania on 22 March 2013 - 09:06 PM

I know it is a hot topic and we should discuss it here. Edler gets suspended for trying to avoid smith who was in the same exact situation last year with Shaw. Smith dove and now is faking concussion symptoms because his team is going nowhere and he has nothing to lose.

Lupul barely touched Hedmen who falls like a ton of bricks. Obvious dive. Yes what Lupul did should be illegal but he barely touched him.

Perry suspended 4 games for literally brushing against a guy who was lost in space and wrecked himself.

 

Zolnierczyk hammers Lundin and leaves his feet AFTER contact... suspended.

 

Nash blatantly jumps and nails Kopecky in the back of the head... nothing. Looked like it was a reaction play. Now this one may be the right call but then how can you suspend the others for doing the same thing (other than the Lupul hit which should have been a penalty and not a suspension)?
 

Kronwall 4 minutes for hitting too hard.

 

Smith turns at the end boards at the last second, Glencross who is already committed hits him and is penalized.

 

There are probably at least 3 dozen examples out there already this season of penalties called on hits where the player being hit is the one to blame or where a guy simply hits a guy "too hard" or "too angrily". 

It is starting to get ridiculous. I can give you examples of events exactly the same as these events in the past in which nobody batted an eye over because it is part of the game. The next step is to remove hitting all together and sometimes I wish they would just get it over with quick instead of this slow and painful degradation.
