Or people aren't on LGW because it's nothing but people complaining about how we suck? Or because it's a Friday night and people are out? Most of the people here are die hards, and some of us have been Wings fans long enough to remember what *really* losing was like. I doubt this season will push all but a handful away.

Sorry if I'm being overly sensitive, it's been a day...


But... you're still giving out butt pats if they win tonight... right?

#2494855 Where has NHL scoring gone?

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 12 March 2014 - 05:30 PM

My theory for the low scoring is the modern butterfly style dominating the league, as well as lots of those goalies being bigger now, or at least playing aggressive enough to look bigger.


Had to do some quick research and it looks like there were only a few goalies back then that implemented dropping to the knees in some situations, with only a couple goalies throughout the years actually using the style as a main like Tony Esposito and later Patrick Roy. It seemed to me that there was a bigger transition somewhere in the '90s/early 2000s where current pros switched to a hybrid or came into the league with some type of hybrid playstyle, where now today the butterfly style is dominant across the league.


I wonder how much scoring would be achieved back then if goalies had better masks and the butterfly was more popular; It seemed that a lot of goals back then that you can find on youtube were low-- between and around the skates.

Gillis currently pleading with NJ management for a mulligan. Lamoriello said "No taksies backsies."

#2488395 Why did Franzen get 10 min game misconduct?

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 01 March 2014 - 06:40 PM

Neal is a tool. But I don't like Franzen slashing players( he did it to one of the Ottawa players late in the game, don't remember who) in the back of the leg and running away either. Franzen shouldn't be fighting especially after all his concussions, but he should cool it with the cheap shots too.


So people don't like Franzen yapping and slashing people but they're alright with Ottawa's players cross-checking Franzen in the head and taking cheap shots at Datsyuk all game?


I guess apparently you need to be a fighter to stand up to Ottawa's antics in order to be accepted around here, but slashing as payback or chirping is a big no-no.

As long as they play a smothering defense like team Canada and win by a goal, that's fine by me.

Apparently it's ok to hold Dats' stick...


It should be an automatic major+game misconduct+beheading. Dats' stick is too sacred to be held by mere peasant hockey players.

#2486927 Pekka Rinne cleared to play,sent to Admirals for conditioning

I wonder who would have started between him and Rask in the olympics if Rinne played the whole season?

Great game. Battle to the end. Canada's overall defensive game is just suffocating(for both teams). Can't wait for Sunday!


ps. I think waffles/pancakes with syrup is one of the grossest things you can have for breakfast. Batter and syrup to start the day? No thanks.


Yes, you need a more balanced breakfast to start your day:

Just cause he'd rather pack lips and crush handles of bacardi then text supermodels back, doesn't mean he has a bad attitude.


He's af****** all star.
