That was a weak goal given by Howard-Lilja duo.

This is going too well... there will probably be an injury or something like that. This is going too well.


#1928508 Ville Leino 1/3 of Philly's offensive unit

Posted by Finnish Wing on 30 March 2010 - 04:34 PM

It's kinda funny how many people wish that he wouldn't do well in Philly so the deal would look better for us. The fact is that it would have never happen here. It was obvious that he needed to move. I hope he does well as he is a Finnish player (and once played for my favourite club) and it's nice that he is playing in the Eastern Conference and not for the Blackhawks for example.


#1926118 Filppula following similar path to Datsyuk...?

Posted by Finnish Wing on 27 March 2010 - 10:24 AM

I'd say Flip's peak is 60-70 and Hudler's 80-90.


#1925855 3/26 GDT: Wild 2 at Red Wings 6

Ozzie teaching Howard how to forget about weak goals and continue. Now who would be a better coach in the subject than Osbad?


#1925814 3/26 GDT: Wild 2 at Red Wings 6

Posted by Finnish Wing on 26 March 2010 - 08:55 PM

man backstrom sure does suck

wouldn't expect much more from a finnish goalie though

I'm sorry that I ruined your extremely funny "training with Osgood" -joke by bringing up the facts...


#1924278 Howard - Rookie of The Year?

Posted by Finnish Wing on 24 March 2010 - 09:27 PM

If Rask plays his remaining 10 games, I wouldn't be so sure Howard winning it. This is Red Wings. Even Osgood has been good behind this team.

Leading the league in gaa and save% is pretty good.


#1923764 Will Filppula hit 40 points?

Posted by Finnish Wing on 24 March 2010 - 12:56 PM

Fixed.

Better one than none. Like you're some kind a true Red Wings fan, gimme a break. Go watch your boy Beckham kick that ball.

Hey I want points too!


#1921478 Penguins bashing thread(keep it within the site rules please)

Posted by Finnish Wing on 22 March 2010 - 08:12 AM

I think making these kinda threads just shows that people are jealous. Just like the threads and stuff Blackhawks fans do about Red Wings.


#1921199 Valtteri Filppula appreciation

Posted by Finnish Wing on 21 March 2010 - 05:50 PM

He's just going to respond by saying something along the lines of Franzen has played 16 games and Fil has played 44 games.

After which I respond how Carcillo has played 67 games and Filppula only 44.


#1921187 Valtteri Filppula appreciation

Posted by Finnish Wing on 21 March 2010 - 05:30 PM

Flip-flop has 8 goals and Franzen has 7 goals...

Fixed.


#1920969 Valtteri Filppula appreciation

Posted by Finnish Wing on 21 March 2010 - 10:58 AM

I was so sure he was gonna miss that short-handed breakaway.. he didnt sell it either just went a simple backhand but it was placed perfectly over the pads but under the glove

Yeah, it wasn't a good deke. Luckily the backhander was perfect.


#1920930 Shoot Out Is Lame

Posted by Finnish Wing on 21 March 2010 - 09:04 AM

The best point system is 3 for win, 2 for OT win, 1 for OT loss and 0 for loss. Shootout ain't the problem.

And I know why some of you North Americans don't like when a loser gets points. That wouldn't be a problem either. The problem is that you've had that s***ty system where winner always gets the same amount of points and there is this "extra point" thing, which just doesn't work. That is why you probably hate when points are given for losing. I know I would too.

But trust me, it isn't a problem if you go with the 3 win, 2 OT win, 1 OT loss, 0 loss system. Everyone gets what they deserve. There is also the same amount of points on the line. No extra points.

Of course the problem is that NHL can't use that point system because the Europeans did it first. Kinda like with the SI system.

Even though the Wings have stunk at them overall this year, in general I still like shootouts and I think they have their place in the regular season.

Get rid of the dinky automatic point you get for going into overtime even if you lose.

3 points for a win in regulation
2 points for a win in overtime
1 point for a win in a shootout
0 points for a loss at any point in a game, no questions asked, no ifs/ands/buts

That solves your parity problem and truly rewards good teams for taking care of business as much and as early as possible, and also teams who do decent in overtime and the like.

The problem with this system is the same as with the current system. And trust me, it's a big problem that there aren't always the same amount of points on the line.


#1920910 Valtteri Filppula appreciation

Posted by Finnish Wing on 21 March 2010 - 08:23 AM

While Valtteri had a three point night here his brother also did that in Finland. Ilari had 2+1 when TPS (black) beat HIFK (white) 3-2 in the final game of regular season.



Filppula is number 81 playing for TPS. Actually he has the golden helmet also.
