#2250556 How Would You Fix the All Star Game?

Posted by puckloo39 on 29 January 2012 - 11:48 AM

they could invite actual stars of the league instead of politicizing the event beyond recognition. I haven't watched it in about 10 years. It's become a farce.

I would make it an actual competition again, and eliminate the fan votes.

#2248098 No suspension for Zetterberg

example of suspension-worthy hit, with intent to injure. Yes, Pronger was suspended one game.

What Zetterberg did... skating too fast, and unable to pull up in time, was not at all the same thing. We shall see if the league wants to make these two situations equal in magnitude and intent. One of these things is not like the other. ;)

I am glad Nikita is fine. He left the arena under his own power. :thumbup:

*twiddles thumbs, waiting for hockey* :rolleyes: Could be that I am addicted. A little bit. Yeah.

Go, Wings! Play hard, these guys will sneak up on you. Hope to see Bert continue his return to the Bert I loved years ago. Makes me smile to see him thrive like this.

Wings win. I don't care how -- but no more shoot out for a while, you might run out of goalie de-jocking tricks one day soon. :P

Smith is a good goalie. He won't be happy. Score some goals anyway, Wings.

Fil with a hattie. :D

Yay for later game start... I can get home in time to see the entire game, hooray!!

#2246261 1/17 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Dallas Stars 2 (SO)

Thanks, Mikey! Hope the Wings saved a couple of goals for this game. :P Both teams traveling to Dallas for the game (Dallas lost to St. Louis 1-0).

It will be interesting to see if the "road woes" follow the Wings we saw vs. Buffalo Monday night at the Joe.

Wish I could be there in Dallas. Why they put the only two games vs. Wings in January, and both on a week night, I couldn't tell ya. <_< Too much of a drive for me, on a work night -- but I will be watching!

Go, Wings!!!

I am not usually a fan of shoot outs... but that was ridiculous!!

Congrats to Babs on 400 wins, Jimmy on win #100 and the Wings with 13 straight wins at home. Happy fans!!

Really like Commie out there with Ericsson. He makes the kid better. :thumbup:

I predict they will play better tonight, vs. Yoties. :D

#2244252 Filppula is "too nice".

Posted by puckloo39 on 11 January 2012 - 08:35 AM

Filppula stepping up to the plate. :clap: Datsyuk with some gems, good read.

#2244185 are we done giving conklin chances?

Posted by puckloo39 on 10 January 2012 - 10:15 PM

Welcome to the forum. Hope you didn't expect any support for this thread. Conks wasn't the issue tonight. Lots of near misses, good chances not completed, and lack of scoring lost the game. The Wings never had a handle on this game, not for one moment.

Blame the goalie if you want, but scoring one goal won't win many games. End of story.

Go, Wings!

#2244180 1/10 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Islanders 5

Posted by puckloo39 on 10 January 2012 - 10:08 PM

and when they are bad, they are very, very bad. It wasn't their night, since they didn't really ever have a handle on this game. I feel bad for Conks, mostly.

Fil has a couple of great chances, and Mule hit a post... puck luck just sucked, that's all. Better game next time, guys. Onward!!

I meant to give you a + for this not a - bad me :(

I'll be here but have to miss part of it, maybe it'll work to be intermission. We'll have our chance to see Nabokov to see what we're missing out on. Wish Conklin would have gotten another start...but this is Bacock's way, probably won't see Ty for another month.

I say we'll have a good night.

Go Wings!!

I fixed the accidental neg for you. :P

Early puck drop for me, but i will rush home for most of the first... no Nabby, meh. They should let Ty play again, IMO.

Go Wings!!

Unprofessional sigh at 0:47.

I LOL'd... :D

#2243291 1/8 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blackhawks 2 (OT)

I am happy they won this one. Ty deserved it. He was the reason they got through the third, until someone stepped up and scored.

Give credit where it's due. Jimmy needs to be able to take a night off. Maybe now, that can happen once in a while without a hue and cry about the back up being so terrible.

Val Filppula is very under-rated on this team of bigger stars. He's been amazing.

And good for Hudler with the first star tonight. Way to go, Jiri! :thumbup:
