#2163724 Not to be an A-hole

Posted by dat's sick on 01 May 2011 - 06:00 PM

I was gonna say he brings puck-possession, but lately he's been SOOOO weak on the puck. Just about everyone just pushes him away and takes the puck from him.

That's why I've defended him in the past, because he's always been a good fit for the Wings. Good defensively, good at holding onto the puck and entering the zone, good skater. But his confidence seems to be at an all-time low. That or he's nursing some injury. I don't know. All I know he's been really disappointing for me almost the entire season and now especially in the playoffs. Sad, because I truly thought he was heading in the right direction. Must've taken a wrong turn somewhere.

So over the years I haven't had many negative things to say about Valterri. But when it really comes down to it, what does he REALLY bring to this lineup other than solid defensive play? For his contract he really needs to either provide WAY more offense or be winning faceoffs, like all of them.

In addition, off topic oddly enough, Babcock said he would ice the team that provided the best chance of winning. Not to second guess the guy but, you have Hudler providing almost nothing (he IS there for offense) and Fil playing, ON THE POWER PLAY, not getting any points how is this the best lineup to win games? I've been around for a while and seem to recall that Drapes has a great FO% and Modano is known to have some skill putting the puck in the net. I really hope that MB makes a change or 2 to the lineup when the series shifts back home or we may be looking at the same outcome as last season.

I believe in Babs and think he'll have a solid game plan to handle the Sharks.

#2154109 WCQF Game 4 GDT: Red Wings 6 at Coyotes 3

Posted by P. Marlowe on 20 April 2011 - 06:25 AM

I had to miss the game three 'cause the starting time here is 5:30 AM. I have an account at drumnj's stream so my plan was to watch it next day as all the games are archived there. When I woke up I was avoiding all the hockey news in fear of spoilers, but when I got to drumnj's archive page I nearly pissed my pants. There was already slots ready for games four and five. "That must mean that Wings lost" I thought. I almost did not watch the game at all, but still decided to as I didn't have much else to do. Wings just kept getting these leads and all the time I wondered when does the unavoidable damn Coyotes' comeback begin. So, the result was a nice surprise and I'm glad I watched the game after all.

This one I'm going to watch live, maybe catch some sleep before the game.

#2147470 Modano a healthy scratch

Posted by Rick Zombos Ghost on 13 April 2011 - 11:16 AM

HA. Maybe this is what happens when you announce your retirement before the playoffs even start. That was kind of a dick move....

#2148864 TODD BER-TUZZI ! TODD BER-TUZZI !

Posted by Hell Toupee on 14 April 2011 - 07:54 AM

"Red Wings forward Todd Bertuzzi had a good laugh Wednesday night when a reporter asked when was the last time he had heard his name chanted by fans at a game.

"Not in a bad way?" he replied, smiling. "Gotta be at least seven, eight years ago."

Bertuzzi received a standing ovation from fans after a brief fight with Phoenix's Rostislav Klesla during the second period of Game 1's 4-2 victory at Joe Louis Arena.


Bertuzzi was further rewarded with loud "Todd Bertuzzi" chants.

He dropped the gloves after Klesla chest-bumped him several times following a collision along the boards that ended with Klesla being upended.

"I didn't even have the puck and he took a run at me," Bertuzzi said. "I was ready to go. Unfortunately, I kind of slipped."


Bertuzzi has been vilified in most NHL arenas after his infamous hit playing with Vancouver on Steve Moore seven years ago, which made Wednesday's chants even nicer.


"It was pretty cool," Bertuzzi said. "It probably would have been better if it was after a goal, but, it was neat. Good fans here.""

#2145660 Any one think Abby might face discipline?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 10 April 2011 - 03:44 PM

There is no question in my mind that Abby will get something. It's almost identical to the elbow-to-face shot that Dany Heatley recently gave to Steve Ott in our (Sharks) game against Dallas. It was a sweet shot to watch against a notorious rat/agitator, but for that Heatley received a two game suspension and $80,645.16 fine.

Watch here and see if you can see much of a difference:

Ah. I was confused when you said it was Eager.

But seriously, you can't see much difference between Abby's hit, where he's actually going to hit a guy along the boards who had played the puck, and Heatley's, where he throws an elbow as he skates past Ott?

just for reference.

For comparison:


The difference in both cases (from the Bert shot) is that they obviously (or at least arguably) deliberate head shots.

The difference is that they're arguably the same? what?

Now I'm starting to think you're a sharks fan just trolling. Abby's is worse than Bert's. But Abby's is nothing like what Heatley did.
