#2246786 Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium Finalized

Posted by rick zombo on 18 January 2012 - 10:16 AM

Obviously you guys are excited, and you should be.

But speaking as a fan of another team, it's pretty irritating that the NHL keeps putting the same damn teams in the Winter Classic every couple years. I'm sure you'd feel the same way if Detroit hadn't been in it yet and three other teams had been in it twice already in 5 years.

Obviously Wings and Leafs fans are happy, but I'm not so sure about most other fans. I hear a lot of grumbling about recycled teams and how people are losing interest because of that (maybe just talk...I'm sure they'd still watch it).
Yes, the original six match up is cool, it's an old rivalry between Toronto and Detroit, I get it...but the NHL needs to get some new teams in there.

You know Chicago will get it again in a year or two (hopefully against St. Louis, in St. Louis)...and surely if Crosby ever comes back, Pittsburgh will get it again in a 2-3 years. So I fully expect the trend of recycling teams to continue. I just hope the Blues get in before the NHL decides to scrap the Winter Classic due to falling ratings or the novelty wearing off, or whatever.


:rolleyes:

I'd rather look at it this way: Like it or not, from your perspective as a Blues fan, The Red Wings are the undisputed class of the NHL in organizational structure, ownership, winning, the generation of TV ratings, merch sales and on and on. They should have hosted the first Winter Classic and it's about time they had one. For once, the game is celebarting the success of two mega-franchises rather then trying to push an agenda of marketing "star" players or pandering to east coast NBC markets.

Add to that the fact that Toronto is a very deserving opponent. Viola!!!! Party time.

#2174742 Where is the Pavel Datsyuk appreciation thread?

Posted by Nev on 13 May 2011 - 02:25 AM

Because the man was just a beast. The only skater to turn up for all 7 games of the San Jose series, and an absolute joy to watch. 11 games, 15 points, +10.

He deserved better, and there's a fair few players on this team owe him an apology.

Edit: Oh yeah, and I forgot, played with a wrist so badly injured he couldn't take face-offs

#2245259 Cammalleri traded

Posted by F.Michael on 13 January 2012 - 01:16 PM

He better learn how to speak French fast.

Rosetta Stone can't work fast enough for the poor guy :lol:

No matter how good he is with the players, no matter how positive he can portray himself and the Habs as a franchise, I'm afraid the Cunneyworth will never be "one of them".


#2245211 Cammalleri traded

Posted by rick zombo on 13 January 2012 - 10:48 AM

Why is Montreal soooo f***ed?


Clearly it starts with management. The team has no identity. In 08/09 and 09/10 they were fast, skilled, and exciting. Then the skill dissapears and they're soft. Now what the hell are they? A mess. If the fans and media would just screw off and let the team conduct business and implement some form of long-term strategy outside of public influence they may turn it around. Aside from their run in the spring of 2010, this is a team that's supposedly been on the re-build since Roy was traded in 1996. This club reminds me of the Rangers organization in every way, except for the results this year's Rangers team has produced.

#2244314 Study done on fighting in hockey

Posted by newfy on 11 January 2012 - 01:16 PM

http://powerscouthoc...coachs-strategy

This recently published study was done to see if fighting really does impact the momentum of the game, the guy who conducted it has a few University degrees and is an economics major so hes good with data.

They used the rate of shots on goal after a fight as a way to measure momentum, they decided this was the best way to quantify what you visually see on the ice and call momentum. Its not perfect but when I tihnk of a team with a tonne of momentum, shots on goal and maybe puck possession to an extenet is what I would call it. I think they used a good metric here.

They found that in over 75% of games after a fight, at least one team recieved a boost in their momentum, this is short term momentum taken over a 5 minute period. Basically, a boost that gets a teams head out of its ass if theyre playing poorly.

Appleby was on hockey central at noon and said that a poor period for a team would usually be around 4 shots on goal while the average is about 10. The teams that were having poor periods and not getting many shots on goal received the biggest boost by far.

Basically, its saying that if a team is playing well a fight may give a small boost, no boost or the other team may get the boost BUT when a team is playing like s***, a fight will usually give a pretty big boost to the team. Earlier this year when Abdelkader fought Lappierre in Vancouver is a prime example of this, the wings got a big boost and played much better after it woke them up.

Games like last night where the team was flat against the Isles is a perfect example of why adding a scrappy player like a Tim Jackman or Prust would be perfect for this team to wake the skill up and keep going. I know the whole momentum aspect of fighting is not accepted around here by a lot of people, but now that it was quantified and studied has anyone changed their stance on replacing redundancy in the bottom 6 for a guy who could provide this type of spark on a consistent basis?


#2244509 1/12 GDT : Coyotes 2 at Red Wings 3 (SO)

Posted by P. Marlowe on 12 January 2012 - 09:23 AM

Alright time put that horrid effort behind us, and I see Dats is back so I look forward to this one.


This far I've only seen this:

MLive (January 12, 2012)

Datsyuk sat out Tuesday’s game with a lower-body injury. He was hoping to return tonight.


Also:

Forward Jan Mursak will join the Red Wings tonight, after wrapping up a two-week conditioning stint with the Grand Rapids Griffins.




I really like this stat:

NHL.com Preview

Abdelkader and Detroit's Darren Helm aren't just the young guys up front for the Red Wings who provide energy -- they are also helping the Wings get their sixth-ranked power play on the ice more. Helm is drawing 2.2 penalties per 60 minutes of ice time, which is fifth in the NHL among players with at least 30 games played, while Abdelkader's 2.1 per 60 is tied for sixth. Detroit is only team with two guys in the top 15.
