#2415921 The ugly elephant in the room

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 29 May 2013 - 11:54 PM

As far as i'm concerned the playoffs ended tonight and it's officially baseball season. That's about how much I care about the remaining 4 teams competing for the cup. I don't care who wins because all have taken it recently and don't necessarily like any of them all that much. Kings/Bruins is the lesser of two evils but my give-a-damner is floored.

OK, now you're really being too calm and collected.  


You're right. Should I have gone directly for the shotgun? One intent to injure for another? LOL!

Our guys always played their most effective hockey when they needed to. So I believe.

Beautiful. Thanks for posting this.

Yesterday was bitter. Tomorrow won't be, if the refs do their jobs properly. We play a game 7 against a team who most of us, myself included, wouldn't dream of reaching it, let alone the realistic possibility to win it. My personal prediction at the beginning of the postseason was Hawks in 6. And I think of myself as an optimist. :D

So I join you in being proud of the guys. Let's GO Wings !

Well said!   

 

Somehow, the Wings have strived AND succeeded without Lidstrom, without Holmstrom, without Bertuzzi, without Helm, and without DeKeyser.  Somewhere along the line in this shortened bastardized season this ragtag, crippled, makeshift, old and slow, rookie-peppered bunch of hockey players became a TEAM.  A team that has taken the number one hockey squad in the world to a seventh game.  Still nobody much is talking about them with any sense of what it took for them to get where they are.

 

It simply doesn't matter.  Anybody with a penchant for sports history will be talking about this team in years to come, and they will get their due.  They are a miracle of their own making.  I am so very proud to be here in this moment.  To savor their valor, and experience the thrills and chills at their very Trying.

 

I love you Detroit Red Wings.  Thank you so much for who you are, and what you have become.  And I am so very proud and honored to be one of your fans.  




#2414069 Fraser's take on Penalty Shot

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 28 May 2013 - 03:05 PM

Pav's "trip" on Toews?

 

Abby thrown face first into the boards by Seabrook in the 1st while on a PP?

 

Kindl called for interference and then later in the first a Wing was interfered with even more so with no call?

 

Consistency is all we ask for.

And where was Brunner's penalty shot this series when he got the corkscrew in the hands on a breakaway, or when Roszival two-handed Abdelkader's stick out of his hands on a breakaway that was pointed out in a .gif in the last GDT?  Therefore, Mr. Fraser, the call was flat outf****** wrong and by this series' standards isn't even a penalty.

The President's trophy team isn't going to lose 4 straight in the playoffs to a 7th seed, with the 4th loss being at home.  Game 5 shouldn't have been a surprise.  Game 6 was our best chance to close the series.  We had the game under control through 40 minutes, then Smith makes a rookie mistake and its tied.  Quincey's stick breaks, we're losing.  Frolik scores on a penalty shot that was a bad call.  It happens, now we have to do it the hard way.  Babcock is right to keep Smith in there.  Its time to look at the bigger picture here.  The experience he's getting from these games will help for many years down the road.  Years when we're not the 7th seed trying to beat the top two seeds just to get to the Conference Finals.  
 
You can say they "choked" all you want, but the success they've had in these playoffs will be felt for years.  Watching guys like Brunner, Nyquist, Andersson, Howard, and Kindl play in these high pressure games and play well, bodes well for us down the line.  Sure Smith is making a lot of mistakes, but he's making some nice plays too and gaining lots of experience.  The guy is only 24 years old playing in his first full NHL season.  Give him a break.  Going into these playoffs I felt like the team had a ton of holes, but after 13 playoff games, I'm not so sure that's the case anymore.

It's a terribly blurry shot, but I got to ride the Zamboni at the Griffins game on Friday night!

Today is my birthday. Bought a ticket to the game as a present, and I won't tell you my wish, but I'm sure you can guess.

Wings in 6! Let's go!

Pavel normally has one big game per round, and he's due tonight.  He breaks out with a goal and 13 assists as the Wings march into the conference finals with a 14-3 win.
