#2239792 12/30 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Blackhawks 3

Posted by puckloo39 on 30 December 2011 - 11:05 AM

Big game tonight. Sadly, I'll have to miss at least the 1st.

:(

what's going on, Mike, do you have to work? I will watch them for you, no fear!!

Wings will come out firing on all cylinders and Chicago will have to really work for it if they get anything on us. If the last two games are any indication, the western Canada games made them unhappy with their efforts.

I was at the 12/26 Nashville Preds/Wings game -- and it might have been one of the best efforts I've seen from the Wings, collectively, this season. St. Louis, same thing. More please!! :P

so Commodore really does play for the Wings? I thought he was a figment of my roster-imagination.

Why isn't Ericsson sitting? Rhetorical question, and I don't normally jump on the player-bashing train, but he's a liability out there, on a given night.


#2238358 Jimmy Howard - "Iím just sick and tired of getting run over.

Posted by puckloo39 on 22 December 2011 - 03:21 PM

Anyone who knows me, knows my feelings about teams who let their goalie get taken out, game after game. Jimmy has the credibility at this point to call them out himself - and he should. No one is saying that our players should go beat down the other team's players who offend. But someone (don't ask me who) needs to make sure they're looking over their shoulders when they touch one of our goalies. There are ways players can police these sorts of things on the ice, without resorting to goon tactics. I just wish some of our current players had that type of mentality - which I believe they do not.

I miss Mac and Shanny and some of our less "elite" players like Duschene, who had the heart and passion to make sure no one took liberties with our goalies. If Jimmy has to channel Vernon and fight for his own safety out there, then the Wings should know they might have to figure out how to win games without him, when he's injured or sitting out a suspension.

It makes my blood boil when players run Jimmy and then get rewarded for it. :ranting:


#2238250 Stay classy Kesler

Posted by puckloo39 on 22 December 2011 - 09:49 AM

eh, Kesler has always been one of my non-Wing favorites, too. The Canucks have delusions of grandeur when it comes to their place in the NHL. Makes them say ridiculous things.

Kronner may not have more fights than Kesler, but he's got more Stanley Cups. Oh, well. :)

Kesler is a wanna-be


:lol:


Datsyuk has more Selke's, too. Just sayin'.....

Does anyone know if there is a stream tonight anywhere? Preferably Detroit if you got it. :D

NM...found one. :clap:

Thanks for the GDT, Mike! :thumbup:

I love west coast games, I can actually get home in time to see the entire game :thumbup:

#2236547 Mike Milbury charged with assault

Posted by puckloo39 on 16 December 2011 - 04:11 PM

I am really shocked, if this proves to be true. Shame on him, and I hope he gets what's coming to him. :no:

I can hear the Penguin fans' excuses already. As for the Wings... there are no excuses. Destroy whatever is out there for the Penguins tonight, please?

Good point. :lol:

here's to a big win tonight, and a lively GDT. Go, Wings!!!


#2235160 Crosby has "concussion symptoms"

Posted by puckloo39 on 12 December 2011 - 10:12 PM

Seriously, I know he is a good player, but the efforts to make him the best and the face of the NHL has made me dislike the kid. There are other young players who work hard and are great fun to watch - we have a few - who will not get the media hype, but who are still also good for the game. Hard work and heart - to me, that's what the game is all about.

I hate for any player to go out like this, but his time might be over. Seems that he has a hard time coming back from the injury, much as he might want to.

I think we may have seen the last of him at least for the regular season.


#2234867 12/10 GDT : Jets 1 at Red Wings 7

Posted by puckloo39 on 11 December 2011 - 12:17 PM

Agreed, it's hard to post pages of "WOOHOOO!! Mule/Bert/Huddie/etc." when they get to 5, 6, 7 goals and no push-back from the other team, no mistakes to critique, nothing to complain about. :lol:

I want to thank Mike for making us the stellar game day threads, and not to be discouraged about lack of posting when everyone is just wallowing in the greatness of this team, like last night. We do appreciate your efforts, it's not that we don't love your work and appreciate it. :thumbup:

I am more :rolleyes: about the media brushing off a hum-dinger of a game and giving the Wings no props for winning it. Penguins got a headline because they won without Crysby. Now, that's newsworthy. I bet his team mates love it when he's out, so they get mentioned.

I hope Huddie has found his stride, tiny though it might be, it could be mighty!! :D
