any hope of finishing first in the western conference is now gone.

#2259252 freeredwings.tv stops streaming NHL games

Posted by Gizmo on 20 February 2012 - 09:34 AM

I would have loved to continue providing the service, but you can thank the NHL for ruining the party.

While I confess to having watched a streamed game or two after losing the battle for control of the family TV, I don't "blame" the NHL for anything in the C&D letter. Let's not kid ourselves, unauthorized streaming of copyrighted programming is blatantly illegal. It doesn't matter if it's "for profit" or done as a service for fellow fans. I'm sorry that you no doubt had the daylights scared out of you when you opened the letter, but could you really not see this coming? You registered a domain that screams "Hey, free illegal streaming of Red Wings games over here!!!!" I mean, dude......!

It's also not a Crosby-lovin'-Bettman thing. Show me one major sporting body that doesn't defend their broadcasts in such a manner.

#2258413 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Bleeding teal, baby. Good luck sharks! No further comments will be made; hate all you want. I'm outta here.

You can end the streak - we'll settle for our playoff success. :)

And by the way, it's impossible to come to a Wings board and be a "fellow" Sharks fan.

"Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game."

As a fellow shark, and hockey fan, I'd like to bid you a good luck to your next game. All I know is that your streak must end. It will eventually, I do not know if it would be by the sharks, but regardless, I shall take pleasure in it. Regardless of what team, you guys are setting yourselves for a great sigh. A long one.

Anyhow, win or lose, It'll be a hell of a game to watch.


If the sharks break your famous NHL record of yours.... oh lord, your will never heard the end of the sharkie fans.... lol.

With regards, and with great anticipation of tmw's game,

“Five seconds left, you can’t let the best player in the world have a breakaway. That’s what happened,” Suter said. “I got caught turning the wrong way and he made me pay.”

Joey Macdonald has been spectacular for a back-up goalie imo. I still feel more comfortable with Howie in net, but there's so much less stress than when Conklin has been playing. Hopefully we can trade off Conklin for picks or something so that he wasn't an entirely bad signing...

And the Wings couldn't uses another big shot from the point on the PP?

Lidstorm - White


I think were good, we already have a pylon with a big shot for the PP but Babcock insists on having a forward play on the second PP unit.

#2234068 Jonathan Ericsson Watch Thread

Posted by Heaten on 08 December 2011 - 03:47 AM

if he continues to play bad, i think that would be in the teams best interest later in the season. getting smith significant games this year especially with lidstrom still on the roster would be huge for his development as he could really hit the ground running next season as an experienced guy. and with how bad E looks at times, the short term trade off would be negligible which is why the long term benefits would be huge.

now i doubt it does happen. but to me it might be what should happen if things continue.

as wings fans its in our best interest for E to play better. so i have no reason to root against the guy. but we have to be realistic and see that he continues to not improve after several years in the league. his contract makes it so he cant just be the guy you dont notice. he now has to contribute in a positive way to earn his pay. i just dont see that happening on a regular basis.

Except Ericsson isn't continuing to play bad. In fact, he's been quite solid back there. He has his brain cramps like most dman have... but overall, he's been fine, and definitely not been the 'problem'.

Smith has shown glimpses of greatness, but as we watched in his last game(?) on the Red Wings is his ability to feed the other team free goals. Of course, I see him learning to make better decisions in the future, but right now, to Red Wings standards, he's not ready to crack the roster... yet. Let him play in GR and hone his game.

In every loss I can point to one player that made a stupid play that cost us a goal. From Zetterberg's giveaway in the Boston game (which we won in SO), to Howards softy in last night's game to the Blues, but to me, Ericsson is the least of the problems. This team, overall, isn't playing with the spark we saw in 2007, 08, and 09. Unless one can argue Lebda and Lilja were game changers, stop blaming Ericsson.

Waive him. He has an NTC, not an NMC.

Sports psychology also seems like a good option; he has shown he has the tools and talent, but he's just completely discombobulated all the time.

He is very expendable right now...damn that NTC he has...

#2257406 Zetterberg out vs. Predators, Tatar called up

Posted by softshoes on 16 February 2012 - 01:08 PM

Damn I was going to throw some money on the game tomorrow because I will be in vegas. I don't bet ever but I figured hey while in vegas I'll throw some money on my favorite team and just hope it works out. Second guessing it without Z.

Respect the streak, lay the bet. :thumbup:
