#2632814 Where Are The W-L Results?

Posted by rick zombo on 24 October 2015 - 12:21 PM

If you're looking for W-L results, any hockey website should have them. Like nhl.com or tsn for example. Many of these sites also include breakdowns of OT loses, SO loses, etc. You should be able to find playoff records there too.

I just hope Franzen is able to overcome the symptoms he is facing right now and is able to lead a healthy life with his family. While I think a healthy Franzen is a big asset for the Wings, if he hangs it up, I wish him the best and thank him for his efforts as a Wing. He was in beast mode in 08. I hope he LTIR's it for his long term health, but I don't have the right to tell him what to do.

Never heard of this kid. Was he drafted the same year as Larkin?

How are you feeling, T? I'm sure The Jenerator ™ is taking good care of you :lol:

So awesome that you remember her nickname. :-)

And since you asked, I am doing great, thanks so much. Was the keynote speaker at an ALS fundraiser walk this weekend. Everyone laughed at my jokes. Yay me. Olivia cut the ribbon, she's almost five. Lilja had her 3rd birthday party tonight, it was a blast.
Everyone told me to do voice banking while I'm still able to talk, but no one could tell us where to go. So Jen and I were instrumental in developing a voice banking program at Western Washington University. Now people have a place to go.
Then I was recruited to be part of the Microsoft Eyegaze Research & Development team with Steve Gleason. He is the Man. Yes, I been driving a power wheelchair with my eyes.

And I spent a week coaching at a kids basketball camp...in my power wheelchair. It was cool.

Oh, and as far as eating a bag of Dick's: http://youtu.be/ecc0nbg9m-8

My buddy scored some pretty nice tickets for the game (13th row up from the glass on shooting end for two periods) and was kind enough to invite me along. Seems like what most people saw on TV echoes my thoughts.
Larkin is good. He's NHL ready right now. There were a couple times when he skated into coverage or tried using a hole which closed up around him I think faster than he was anticipating, but those things you get better with with more time in the league. But his vision, his IQ on the ice is excellent. He knows how to find quiet spots in the offensive zone. In the first period on one of his scoring chances he yelled "Pulkky!" before he was even in the slot to receive the pass. He had the vision to know that spot would be open by the time he got there, and the smarts to let Pulks know he wanted the puck before he actually got to his spot and stood still for easy coverage. He was also playing the point on the powerplay for a couple shifts, but it seemed like he had full reign of the ice, cuz he would pinch pretty low, go behind the net, cover the slot, then fade back to the blueline. He was always available to his team somewhere on the ice. At least in that aspect Blashill seemed to give him a real long leash.
One thing I did notice was that on defensive zone face off wins one of the set plays (at least including Larkin and Anithasiau) involved these guys completely ignoring any defensive responsibility and bolting for center ice after a clean face off win. They didn't look back to see where the puck went or if our D turned it over. They didn't fade to our blueline looking for a short breakout pass. They sprinted as hard as they could for center ice which obviously pulled Puttsburgh's defense off the blueline and opened up the path for our guys to skate out the weakside (or breakaway pass). Obviously the downside of this would be if the Wings turned it over we could potentially have a couple forwards way out of position, and likely a defenseman on the wall also out of position, but it's something to keep an eye on this year. Some other teams do this every now and again, but our young guys have wheels (and our defenseman are better when they have time and space to work and skate with), so this could be something Blash utilizes regularly. I did only notice it happen with Larkin and Anithisiau (or however you spell it). I could have missed it some other times.
I think Brendan Smith had a really solid game. I noticed that before faceoffs Smith seemed like he was doing the play-calling. He would skate to a couple guys on our team and tell them something or point somewhere before the puck dropped. It may have been more a case of him giving tips to kids new to the NHL, but either way he came off as a leader in that aspect, which was interesting to see. He's a risk-taker on the powerplay, which I'm not comfortable with. It didn't bite him in this game, but I can definitely see him trying to make a move around his man at the point and losing the puck leading to a breakaway going in the other direction. Maybe that risk is worth taking for the times he gets past his man and has free reign into the shot. Babcock didn't think so, Perhaps Blashill will. Time will tell.
Pulkinen has an excellent shot. He seemed a little more involved in other aspects of the game last night as well, which is actually was I was most excited to see.
Mantha seems like the type to hide in the offensive zone then strike suddenly, Brett Hull like. I don't like that, especially with how big a frame he has, which could be better utilized winning pucks in the corner or fending off defenseman. Having said that I did notice he forced several turnovers which lead to scoring chances.
Franzen looked like you would expect considering he hasn't played in almost a year. Howard looked steady. Bertuzzi seemed like he had a lot of energy out there. Other than that I can't think of anything else of note.

Listen up.  Here is a lesson for all of us to follow from now on.


Whenever you're in doubt in life, just ask yourself "What would Jaromir Jagr do in my position?"  The answer is the philosophy to follow for the future.
