#2140100 4/2 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Predators 3 (OT)

Dominate I only want to see only about 24 shots on goal for Nashville

#2138379 10 most skilled players

Posted by matt198913 on 30 March 2011 - 07:57 AM

I hate to sound like a complete homer too but how is he not hgiher. I didn't grow up in their era but I never seen highlights of anyone of them taking the puck right off someones stick dangle through two defenders and put it top corner. He is one of the most underrated players in history.

#2136694 Jimmy Howard injury

Posted by matt198913 on 27 March 2011 - 09:29 AM

ALso, I just re-read this thread, and I completely agree:

I'm so sick (and actually sad) of hearing the hate on howard, especially from wings fans..

People need to give this guy a break. He's 27 in his second full season as a goalie for the Red Wings. The second toughest job in Detroit right next to being the closer for the Tigers or the quaterback for the Lions. Jimmy was great last year and with out him that longest playoff streak in history would have been snapped. He's playing at a high level right now hopefully he just needs to rest that shoulder.

Been waiting for this game for months. Going down to the Joe with my pop the biggest Leafs fan I've ever seen. Go Wings !!!

I gotta say Howard held them in this one again. Bad goal to start with but he was outstanding the rest of the way.

He was pretty awful for most of the game.

The game winning goal and an assist ya he sucked tonight...

#2126354 3/5 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Coyotes 5 (SO)

Isn't the goalie supposed to be able to do his job. Whatever happened to that

#2125502 Trevor Gillies

Posted by matt198913 on 03 March 2011 - 10:43 PM

Gillies is a cancer in this league.

Cmon Howard haters get talk about rebound control

#2125172 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by matt198913 on 03 March 2011 - 10:07 AM

1993 I was expecting them to beat the Leafs in the first round but thanks to Pat Burns god rest his soul that didn't happen
1994 They were supposed to be in the finals with New York, horrible first round though
1995 Should of won the cup, I expected them to win the cup they had the best team but maybe still needed to learn how to win a little bit more
1996 This was the year right we had the best record in history, everything going for us. Nope
1997 Did not expect them to win it at all, I just wanted to see them play Colorado some time durring the playoffs
1998 After they got Fedorov back I fully expected them to win the cup and with ease
1999 After getting Chelios, Wenddel Clark, Ulf Samuelson, and Bill Ranford to play goal how could they not win the cup! Didn't expect then to get blown away by Colorado
2000 Adding Pat Verbeek but still didn't expect them to win
2001 Never expected them to lose in the first round I thouhgt they might have a shot at the confrence finals
2002 Really did someone that follows hockey not expect them to win that year
2003 Fully expected them to repeat, stupid Giggy
2004 Chaos that season however they got Hatcher back at the right time so I expected them to at least be in the mix for the cup
2005 Even though there was no season I still expected them to win the cup
2006 Led the league in points best team overall, everyone felt like it was going to be Stevey Y's last year definitely expected them to comptete for the cup, didn't see that loss to Edmonton in the first round coming
2007 Thought they had a great shot after beating Calgary in the first round and after getting Bert at the trade deadline but it wasn't to be
2008 Fully expected them to win the cup with Hasek playing lights out in the regular season, who knew that Ozzie would lead them to it
2009 Expected them to win the cup
2010 If they got to the conferecne finals it would have been a small miracle still this is Hockeytown, so I have to be honest I expected them to win the cup
2011 In my opinion for top to bottom they have the best line up out there, the only question is in goaltending which I believe Howard can answer. I think they win the cup beating Pittsburgh if Crosby comes back in 6 games if he doesn't come back then they beat Philadelphia in 6

#2122932 Red Wings Won't be Active at Trade Deadline

Posted by matt198913 on 27 February 2011 - 12:41 AM

So you could argue that they are similar in the +/- stat category being that Ericcson plays for the 84 point Red Wings, while Bogosian plays for the 61 point Thrashers could you not? Not even considering ice time which I am sure Bogosian gets more of.

My point is don't take into consideration the +/- stat so much.

Ericcson is 6 years older too. That being said, I'd be trading Kindl before Ericcson for sure!!

I do think the plus minus does play a major role in todays NHL. Last year E a minus 15, he's definitely improving

Posted by matt198913 on 27 February 2011 - 12:10 AM

Depth D man would be fine for me. No need for any other moves. I cringe at trading Ericcson right now because I don't see how Bogosian could help any more than Ericcson. Ya ya he's physcial, blah blah blah he's minus 11 with 4 goals and 8 assists. E is a plus 12 with 3 goals and 11 assists. he's got 73 hits too.

#2122049 Ericsson vs Ott

Posted by matt198913 on 25 February 2011 - 01:14 PM

Hockeyfights.com posted this video on facebook and I saw one guy comment something along the lines of "Too bad Ott couldn't have got his original pick for a fight.. typical red wing"

So I of course had to comment and single him out and make him look just a little bit like a fool.

Anyways, does anyone have a count of how many games it's actually been since a Red Wing fought? Seems like forever. I'll settle for a ragdolling of that ugly douchebag, but it would have been so much sweeter to see Big E knock a few of the teeth out of Ott's mouth.. maybe that would finally shut him up for a while.

Franzen cannot fight see 2008 playoffs concussion problems

#2118727 2/18 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Panthers 3

Posted by matt198913 on 18 February 2011 - 08:06 PM

f***en bench Ericsson... seriously wtf.

Every time I read this board I hear people complain about E not playing physical. Now that he does people still complain.

#2117222 Was '97 or '02 team better?

Posted by matt198913 on 16 February 2011 - 10:03 AM

I love the 97 team. But in terms of being better for it would be the 02 team. I cmon ten hall of famers. But the 97 team of a sweeter victory. Especially after losing in 95, and 96...

#2115399 Isles vs Pens

Posted by matt198913 on 12 February 2011 - 12:09 PM

Godard and Gillies were involved in pretty much one incident each, what about the rest of the 15 fights lol? Those were all better or pretty even players with Mccarty.

Mccarty was there as a fighter first and foremost anyways, he WAS a fighter. Just one that was pretty good at hockey as well.

There is pretty much nothing different about this game than March 26th 1997 at the Joe. Mccarty's suckerpunch was actually much more vicious, blood every where and Mac was throwing knees for gods sake.

Its fine if you dont like this kind of thing in hockey but if you are one of the ones who loved that Mac Lemieux incident then take off the homer glasses for once in your life

That was pathetic... He threw a flying elbow and then tried to beat up a kid in his 5th NHL game. I'm all for fights, but the crap the he did and Martin almost assulting Talbot is stupid. Thats not hockey...
