#2470448 WinterFest/ Winter classic Final thoughts

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 04 January 2014 - 12:26 AM

What an amazing game/atmosphere.  I couldn't stop smiling the whole game. It was amazing.  I was row six section 1 right next to the tunnel on the Leafs side and it was absolutely awesome.  The view of the rink wasn't the greatest but I got to high five and talk to many people who are "celebs" in the hockey community.  The end sucks, and i've had one person try to ruin the event for me by rubbing it it, but it was so amazing that no one can take away how awesome the game was.  


I didn't have any problems with the bathroom.  I went up once and it was a pretty long line, but I was in and out in less than five minutes.  I also was in the Leafs section and the fans around me were great.  I talked to the guys behind me (Leafs fans) for the whole game and had a good time.  Only had one Leafs fan try talkin smack on the walk out of the stadium but many Wings fans were there to point out the Leafs "recent" Cup woes haha.

#2467113 Leafs/Wings 24/7 Episode 2 Discussion (12/21)

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 21 December 2013 - 11:05 PM

Second episode about 1000x better than the first one.  I still laugh at the producers creating drama over which team is worse, along with the dramatic, sad music... like a piano solo at funeral.  Very dirge-like indeed.  Best scene was Kronner and the kids... and the Leafs steak dinner where they played credit card roulette.  :lol:

Whoever they play, I hope they sign Bryzgalov for 24/7. 


That would be a humongous big mistake for their team, but awesome for us

KH just talked about how he traded a 2nd round pick for Brad Stuart and a 1st for Kyle Quincey and it made me chuckle

#2422573 17yr old hockey player charged for on-ice assault.

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 26 June 2013 - 11:09 PM

Kid started it. Other kid took it WAY too far. Still don't think he should be criminally charged. Just banned from the league or something equally serious but not criminal.
I just think it's a slippery slope to press charges on a hockey fight.


#2421983 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 24 June 2013 - 10:23 PM


Isn't this what everyone said after they won a few years ago? Seemed to work out just fine for them...

That's not what they are talking about.  The window for compliance buyouts opens 48 hours (i think) after the finals are over

#2420810 Grand Rapids Griffins Win Calder Cup! 5-2 win in game 6

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 19 June 2013 - 12:48 PM

I know a lot of people were mentioning the Nyquist/Andersson/Dekeyser/Lashoff journey, but how about the journey of Petr Mrazek.  Watching him play it's tough to remember this is his first year pro.  Seems like last year he was playing those games in the ECHL not this year.  Dude had some unbelievable saves at the end of game 6.

I'm upset about this game, but for some reason I just have no doubts about the Wings winning Game 7.

That was incredible!!  Thanks!!

But, not entirely original...


Maybe it's just me, but the voice in the commercials never had me sold.  


Awesome video btw

#2409037 Zetterberg's Slap shot

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 21 May 2013 - 06:32 PM

Im not phazed a bit. I love how this guy thinks he's the hockey authority. The funny thing is that there are way more than 3 shots. I can think of a lot of different ones:

1) slap shot (MacInnis)
2) wrist shot (Yzerman)
3) backhand shot (Zetterberg)
4) dangle shot (Datsyuk)
5) snap shot (Messier) 
6) half slap shot (Robitaille)
7) bat shot (Gretzky)
8) redirect shot (Holmstrom)
9) pass shot (Lidstrom)
10) chop shot [backhanded slapper] (Lemieux)


hahahahaha this cannot be real.  I'll go ahead and say 4 shots and separate the snap and wrist even though they are very similar.

So you get 1,2,3, and 5. 

4 = deke (not a shot)

6 = slap shot

7 = ?? baseball? I'm not quite sure

8 = tip (not a shot)

9 = pass

10 = still a backhand, but i could see allowing that one to be loosely called a different shot

#2399379 Things that Shanny missed.

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 08 May 2013 - 02:34 PM

Right, where did I say I promoted any of those threads?


I don't think he dropped the ball; Abby clearly elbowed the guy in the head if you watch the video from the angle near the benches. You can make all the excuses you want and complain about how other teams are getting away with hits, but at the end of the day it would never be mentioned if Abby wasn't suspended. I'm not going to argue that Shanahan has been perfect, because he hasn't, but I'm not going to whine about it and point out every trivial play from the past that he's missed because I'm upset that a Red Wing player was caught.


For the whole swearing in first grade example, I cannot tell if you and Wingsfan72 are either attempting to troll me or you just do not understand simple underlying concepts and so I will explain the reasoning behind my post. The whole swearing issue in itself is completely irrelevant to the topic of hockey. The focus of my example, however, is the underlying action "you tell on me, I tell on you" and this concept is directly related to the structure of this thread. Instead of being upset about the call and voicing your opinion to the league, you resort to childish antics by pointing out every other team's questionable plays and belittling Shanahan. Essentially, this is nearly identical to how I acted in grade one. I get caught for something, and then try and call out everyone else to make myself feel better. I am not saying you should stop or anything like that because if this is how you cope, then this is how you cope.


Why can't this be a thread for people to just vent their frustration with the lack of consistency among suspensions?  Who cares if it's due to the fact that a Wing got suspended or not? The fact is, the NHL has been completely inconsistent on the basis of their suspensions.  That statement right there has nothing to do with the fact that Abdelkader got suspended.  


On another note; how about Derek Roy's hit on Brad Stuart
