#2488525 Very Chris Very, Very Osgood...very

Posted by puckloo39 on 02 March 2014 - 10:34 AM

Pretty much all hockey players have the same lines.  "We just have to play our game..."  Ozzie was far more eloquent and funny as a player because there was no pressure to be coherent in interviews.  Now he's on the hot seat to make cogent observations and be informative.  Much harder than it looks, no doubt.

 

Ozzie will be OK.  But he will never, ever be another Mickey Redmond. 

 

Nor will anyone else, to be fair.  ;)




#2485454 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by puckloo39 on 20 February 2014 - 01:36 PM

I would say yes, he gets a medal.  The back up goalie got one for the Czechs in 1998, and never even sniffed the ice for one second during the entire tournament.  I think if you're on the team, you get a medal.


Between the crappy beds in the Olympic village, to sitting on how many flights, I can see why his back flared up.

What about Dats? Not on the plane?

per Malik, Dats is taking a few days to visit folks in Russia -- probably his daughter who lives with her mom in Ekaterinaburg.




#2485149 Call ups.. Sheahan, Emmerton, Pulkkinen and Almquist

Posted by puckloo39 on 19 February 2014 - 01:21 PM

I saw Pulkkinen play last month here (TX Stars v Griffins) and he is quite impressive.  My newest favorite Finn.  

 

Almquist was penalty magnet, but promptly would make up for it next shift.  I love Sheahan, but Emmerton... sorry, not so much.




#2483718 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Well, I am not going to speculate, Z knows what he can do, and what he can't with that back.  But this makes me sad for him.  He was having a blast.  I feel so bad that he's hurt and can't play for his country. 

 

Just hope he can recover and come back for us, soon - love the guy and he makes such a huge difference for the Wings.  

 

 Feel better, Hank.  :wub:




#2482256 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by puckloo39 on 07 February 2014 - 09:18 AM

Gus Gus is a class act, did his time in GR without a peep, honed his skills and now... he's found his niche with the best team in the NHL.  I couldn't be more proud.  :wub:




#2481645 2/6 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Panthers 1

Posted by puckloo39 on 06 February 2014 - 08:52 AM

We could use a win, boyz... just do this, ok?   Seeing Datsyuk's name in the line up rather than still injured brings a tear to mine eye, Rahmani.  Go, Wings!!!




#2481234 What's wrong with Pasha? (Mod warning post #57)

Posted by puckloo39 on 04 February 2014 - 01:47 PM

 

This. Sometimes fans get a little bit too greedy. I'm just happy he's around another 3 years.

 

I agree, and I am a typical fan.  I think.  I want Pasha to come back strong for us, and also to dominate in the Sochi games.  I want both of those things for him.  And I totally agree, we're SO fortunate to have him and Z and Kronner all on the Wings roster.

Bring this guy back, and yes! to that slogan!  Happy birthday, Toots!

for once I have to agree with Nothing But Capitols broadcast team. The Caps know they need this game and the points.  The Wings evidently did not get the memo.

Great GDT, Paulie, thanks!!   I am hoping the Wings will overcome a day-break time start and the kids will win this one.  I am SO ready for the Olympics to be over, so our top players will come back and not save themselves for the big show.  We need help.

 

Go, Wings!!




#2471176 Team Sweden roster announced

Posted by puckloo39 on 07 January 2014 - 09:54 AM

Our goalies are representing!   Very proud of them both.  I would say Team Sweden has a very good chance at a medal, possibly Gold.

Cleary had a very, very good game.  Quick, knock the rest of his teeth out!!

Leafs did not deserve to be rewarded with the win today.  Hope the league suspends Lupul.

 

And I hope Eaves is not lost for the rest of the season with concussion symptoms.  Lupul knew he was vulnerable.  Crass behavior from a player who should be above that.

 

Boo.

Posted by puckloo39 on 01 January 2014 - 01:29 AM

It's today!! I cannot wait for this game.  The Alumni games were so incredibly awesome.  I love wallowing in premium hockey games to begin a new year.   It bodes well for 2014.

 

Go, Wings!!!
