#2397430 WCQF Game 4 GDT : Ducks 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT) - (Series tied, 2-2)

Posted by RedLightGoesOn on 06 May 2013 - 03:20 PM

Tootoo not being in the lineup is a bad move, I think. While playing solid defense and having strong skating helps, we need to be physical to really dominate the Ducks and help shift the momentum back in our favor.




#2397281 Samuelsson on the top line tonight - god help us all !

Sammy can hit, too.  He plays a different game than Abdelkader, but maybe mixing up our attack won't be such a bad thing.

 

I still don't get why Tootoo isn't allowed to play.  Isn't this type of series exactly what we got him for? He must be annoyed.  I don't remember him making stupid mistakes or anything to justify his removal from the lineup.

Showing my age.... I remember Neil when he played for the Griffins. Something about #25..........

 

Yes for you youngsters, the griffins used to be the top farm team for the Sens.... back in the IHL days....


 

I remember that! Man Neil used to be one of my favorites. I loved watching him get into it. :lol:

That wasn't a head hit. What don't you people understand about that? It was a terrible missed call, but how can you compare it to this hit?

The problem is that every hit needs to be looked at separately. I'm not comparing Abby's hit to any other hit. He got suspended and while I didn't think it was dirty, it's completely reasonable for the league to make the call that it was.
I mention the Weber hit because it is a perfect example of why people get upset about suspensions. The league cannot say that they are worried about head injuries or that they are going to suspend hits where the head was targeted if they are going to blatantly ignore cases like that one.

They got the call right. I don't think it was a malicious hit, but it was careless, and the league is really trying to remove contact to the head from the game. They let this one slide and that message goes out the window.


That message went out the window with the unpunished Weber headslam.

@D_Mac25: What a f'ing joke - Abby gets 2 games for playing hockey how I grew up playing it. The way it should be (cont) http://t.co/lb1gd0ynkQ

Wow wish he was still playing here. Not a single player on this roster who gets angry and plays with a chip on their shoulder besides Datsyuk

Anyone watching the end of the ottawa/montreal game?  Did you see the mon player slap shot the puck right at an ottawa player/bench?  It hit an ottawa player also...but since nobody was injured, that won't be reviewed.  That could have been very serious.  What if he hit somebody in the head?  He obviously had intent to hurt somebody there.

But oh, nobody hit the ice, no calls, no nothing. 

That kind of thing will get someone hurt/killed.

Good god, are people actually mad at Shanahan for suspending Abby on what was obviously a dirty play?  Why did he jump at all?  Had he not left his feet he would have not hit the dude in the head at all, and he still would have crushed him...LEGALLY. 

 

Anybody blaming Shanny, or talking about how the integrity of the game is ruined now, needs to head to the doctor's office and get checked out.  You have an acute case of homerism that could turn deadly. 

 

Again, everyone is entitled to their opinion.  Everyone sees it differently, it's not homerism.

Gryba and Abdelkader, 4 games for hits that weren't even penalties 5 years ago. The NHL will have no hitting and fighting in no time, it's a fast game, a physical game, there's no way to eliminate all the dangerous plays. So instead we play musical chairs with whats acceptable and what isn't. Poor Shanny, I wish he'd resign and let someone else make these decisions so his name doesn't get besmirched so often.

 

For game 4 I'd like to see Bertuzzi take Abbys place and Tootoo in for Sammy. Gotta get more physical with Abby out.

Miraculous recovery coming soon for Lydman.


#2396911 Should Howard be benched?

Posted by Seraph on 05 May 2013 - 04:51 PM

Howard is a stud. He's the reason we're even in the playoffs and will probably have to be the reason we advance, if we do. There is really no option to bench him. Teams lose games sometimes and that makes the starting goaltender's stats ugly.

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 May 2013 - 04:42 PM

Would you feel better if we lost last night 1-0 instead of 4-0? The fact that we scored ONE GOAL in our two losses combined doesn't strike you as a problem? It's howard's fault? Like I said, NO. And I think the voting results are starting to balance out how absurd of a thread this is.
