I love that man. So freaking talented and yet so humble.


#2325630 Hockey News sees us finishing 7th

Posted by redwingmachine on 17 August 2012 - 09:42 AM

Well it's a damn good thing the game is played on the ice and not decided by sport writers. The Red Wings have a new look, players will step up, everything's going to be just fine. I personally think it will be better than fine and we will surprise a lot of sport writers and fans this year. I can't wait until puck drop to see what we really have.

Sincerely,
Optimism


#2307402 Is the Stanley Cup really the hardest trophy in all of pro sport?

Posted by redwingmachine on 14 June 2012 - 02:27 PM

As for basketball, here are my thoughts:

1. Way too many time-outs.
2. If you can score over 100pts in a single game, maybe it is too easy for the players.
3. Why is everyone amazed by a 7ft tall giant that drives the net and dunks on a helpless defender that can't do ANYTHING to stop him?
4. It's a game of embellishment. Nothing is more annoying than a 7ft tall giant flopping around like Joe Thornton after a little bump with an elbow.

As for baseball:
1. The sport is so slow and boring, even the announcers lose focus drift off most of the time.
2. Sports need a time keeping system not this seemingly never ending inning system, makes the game d-r-a-g.
3. You can't call it a world series unless the world participates.
4. The batter needs to step up to the plate ready to play... none of this: swing at a pitch then step out and take a few more swings, stretch out, tap the shoes again, adjust, then step back in. BE READY!

NHL or ice hockey in general is the only sport for me!

This article brings up an interesting point about NFL vs NHL playoffs.

"To win the Superbowl a team must be the better team through 44 minutes of play.
To win the Stanley Cup a team must be the better team through a minimum of 16 hours of play."

Did you know that in football the ball is only in motion about 11 mins out of every game? That seems like a lot of standing or "huddling" to me.


The NHL definitely has the toughest season and the toughest playoffs.

Nothing beats watching Red Wing hockey with Ken, Mick and the gang! (and some ginger ales of course)

Apparently I have to state it again:

He was complimenting them on a good line change. Did you notice afterwards how he stated the Lightning were slow to change their players which is why the Wings ended up scoring?


I guess it’s a matter of interpretation… the way I heard what he said was, the Wings made a questionable change with eight guys on the ice and got the jump on Tampa. Otherwise why specify there were EIGHT guys, let alone emphasize it and draw a big yellow arrow to it. Perhaps it could be blamed on the ambiguity of the English language… or Eddie is a giant bag of ******. My opinion is the latter.

He occasionally says good things about the Wings but to me his bias comes through in how he'll point out all these alleged penalties that should be called on the Wings.

As someone said earlier, basically he comes off like a local broadcast guy doing a national game. He can't seem to set aside his bias.


He always claims that the Wings are the best in the NHL at interfering and not getting caught.
