#2566770 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by Smite on Yesterday, 04:54 PM

What is so special about O'Reilly? He does not take penalties?


Last time I checked we asked a couple of career Centermen to play the wing and he is another left handed shot. 


I would have a hard time giving up a prospect and a draft pick for him.

I have noticed a lot of so called NHL experts have changed there tone from bubble team to top team. However they are clear to point out they are not a elite team..... for that you need to be in the west.... apparently.

#2566183 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by Smite on 27 January 2015 - 04:29 PM

Before World Jr's I would say Mantha is the future, but Larkin really impressed me. He played a complete game and stepped it up a notch when they need him. I know this is not the question but for the frist time in many years I hope they do not do anything at the deadline. No one wants Kindl our top prospects have too much potential and they are projecting one of the deepest drafts this year. 

#2566151 Brodeur retires. Named Sr. Advisor to Blues GM

So whenever you get the trivia question about best athletes to play their entire careers with one team, sadly Fatso will not be on it because of that 7 game embarrassment in a Blues uniform.


Should have retired in the offseason.  



Haha I almost forgot about Fatso....

I guess this tread gives a new meaning to beating a dead hose (mule)



#2564842 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by Smite on 20 January 2015 - 09:54 AM

Big E and Kronner play of of each others strengths and weaknesses. Kronwall is good in the corners, breaking out pass and has ok offensive talent. Kronwall is weak at clearing out the front of the net. Ericsson is a beast in front of his own net and is very discipline doing it, but don't let him pass the puck because its going to be a turnover.  


I think Smitty and Kronner would boost offense on the back end but be a liability down low. Scoring 5 goals a game lately I do not see a need, 


This is my .02

Someone must have watched the Canadian Jrs win last night and thought "wow you can win in this building"

Nicely done. I see Quincy is double shifting.

#2559511 12/29 GDT - Red Wings 2 at Bruins 5

I 100% agree. I was being facetious. He deserves way more ice time than he gets. How does a guy like glendening who's on the 4th line get 4&1/2 minutes more ice time than Weiss? Miller got almost 4 minutes more ice time, even helm got 9 minutes more ice time than Weiss. I don't know what's going on but I don't like it.

Last game I think a lot had to do with the 10 minutes in penalties. Who knows he might not be back at 100% as well. If I remember correctly he got moved up in the third against Ottawa.

I stole this, but thought I would share.

I think it has more to do with not having an enforcer. Opposing teams might think twice about dangling on Howard if Punchy McGrattan was staring them down.


What if Babcock and Mcgrattan stared at each other? There'd be a dimensional paradox. Time would stop as the world rips itself apart at an atomic level eventually imploding in on itself forming a super dense mega black hole.

And that's why Mcgrattan can never play for us.


Your on fire today! you win today's best comment(s)



#2557615 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Posted by Smite on 19 December 2014 - 10:11 AM

Pull the goalie in ot. Have a little powerplay. Couldn't be worse than what's going on.


I read somewhere,If you are scored on in ot with the goalie pulled you forfeit the single point for the tie. 





84.2 Overtime – Regular-season – Extra Attacker - A team shall be allowed to pull its goalkeeper in favor of an additional skater in the overtime period. However, should that team lose the game during the time in which the goalkeeper has been removed, it would forfeit the automatic point gained in the tie at the end of regulation play, except if the goalkeeper has been removed at the call of a delayed penalty against the other team. Should the goalkeeper proceed to his bench for an extra attacker due to a delayed penalty call against the opposing team, and should the non-offending team shoot the puck directly into their own goal, the game shall be over and the team that was to be penalized declared the winner.

Once the goalkeeper has been removed for an extra attacker in overtime during the regular-season, he must wait for the next stoppage of play before returning to his position. He cannot change “on the fly.” If he does, a bench minor penalty shall be assessed for having an ineligible player.

you're a disgrace to the force Bobrovsky!

Bobrovsky, hand in your gun and badge. You're a loose cannon.

Looks like Kindl and Lashoff out. They need to put Weiss on IR to keep Ouellet.


I like that defensive line up....
