#2525091 Home Opener 10/9 Against Bruins

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 22 June 2014 - 07:14 AM

I just may go to that home opener.  Wings did have Boston's number during the regular season and there is no reason that they can't beat them.

It could be worse.  The Kings are raising their Stanley Cup banner in a home opener against the Sharks.

Great game for the fans and the media but for the team not so much, starting with a hefty loss is never a confidence builder.

The Wings had Boston's number in the regular season; no reason they can't get back to that.




#2524811 Todd Bertuzzi will not be re-signed

He could just sign with a real contender now.

 

I wish.  Seriously, I'd really love for Bert to get a Cup.  I've got nothing but sympathy for the guy.  I'd rather he win one than Alfie.

Why? I mean I have nothing against Bert, but no sympathy really. He nearly killed Steve Moore after all. Really he should have been banned for life. 

 

I like a good redemption story.

No he didn't.  The guys that jumped on top did but I'm not going to debate it.  If any one should be banned it's Matt Cooke but that's not going to happen.

I think the Big Bang Theory is one of the worst sitcoms I've ever seen.

 

Not a football fan but after some stuff I read Go Redskins Go, Cowboys >>>> Indians

I really dislike Seinfeld. Have never found it the least bit funny, nor entertaining. A show about nothing (which I know is the idea) and that's about how much appeal it has to me.

I keep seeing that argument against Franzen about him being hot in meaningless moments, but I'm not sure where it came from. I remember thinking last season when he was red hot "thank god Franzen is scoring". I don't have the numbers to back this statement up but I remember having the thought that his hot streak last season was clutch. Then when he slowed down Nyquist rocketed forward. My point is I just don't know of "he scores in meaningless situations" really has any validity. If someone has the numbers that say otherwise that's cool, I'll accept that. My feelings on Franzen are mixed, I'm definitely not trying to blindly defend him.

Well - when we need the Mule to step it up - he usually doesn't.

 

Many will point towards his point production, and his cap value ratio - however he's still getting paid $5 million plus thru the 2015/2016 season...I'm all for using him as part of a package deal.

Good luck two-chicks-at-the-same-time-look-a-like guy.

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?

 

<shakes head>

I like Sunshine.  I hope he finds a place where he's happy and employed.

#2524230 Eaves is OUT in Nashville

Posted by frankgrimes on 17 June 2014 - 12:28 PM

Eaves seems to be in that tough position where he's not physical enough to be a consistent 4th liner (including injuries), and not skilled enough to play on a 3rd line. He's got really high IQ on the PK, but he's had such terrible luck getting hurt. I wish the guy nothing but the best.

 

I feel terrible for him the guy deserves to play an injury free season and show the teams what he can do. Maybe he should put on a few more pounds in order to become a physical fourth liner.

#2523759 2014 SCF : (2) The Big Apple vs. (3) Hollywood

Posted by GoWings1905 on 13 June 2014 - 11:41 PM

The Kings certainly earned it. Fun team to watch play and they prevented Chicago from winning it all most importantly. However, that's two in three years so it's gonna be harder rooting for them going forward.

Seeing the Stanley Cup is easily the coolest moment in sports. Hockey is the best.

Kings win largely due to the NHL officials STILL not getting the calls right for goalie interference. Lunquivst was clearly interfered with on that 3rd goal, but yet that goal counted, which paved the way for the comeback. The NHL consistently gets that call wrong and what a shame that that goal is what killed the rangers tonight, even though it should not have counted.

 

I cannot count how many times we have been burned with that rule. IMO this is why coaches should have 1 chance a game to challenge a call.
