Great pass by Smith.

#2458951 IMO maybe the law should be brought into it.

To be fair on Kmahrle, LGW made him react that way. He used to be very nice.

#2456767 Other Examples of Bad Starts?

I keep misreading this thread as "Other Examples Of Brad Stuarts?"

It's crazy that after tonight, they're only 3 points behind Boston for 1st in the division.

5-2 Wings. Bertuzzi, Kronwall, Datsyuk (2) and how about Toronto Mayor Rob Ford comes charging onto the ice in a crack and alcohol fueled rage and scores a late one for Detroit while trying to fight with a referee thinking they're a Globe and Mail reporter...




And it obviously gets caught on video but according to him, the video doesn't exist because he's never seen it, but it could've happened but he doesn't remember it.

I'm drooling over that 4th line.

#2450605 Smith to IR, Almqvist called up

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 03 November 2013 - 03:59 PM

It sucks that Smith is out (his struggles aside), but I'm very excited to see AA finally get a shot to play. I remember back when he was leading scorer for all F/D as a defenseman in J20. Hopefully he gets used on the PP as well, see how well his QB vision really is.

I wanted to share this:



Polite kid, and he sounds like he was a sponge during development camp. I also liked that he took note of the talk going on about the perception of his compete level and he took that serious and worked hard to shake that off. I'd say he's done pretty good to shut the critics up with his explosive start to the season in the Q.

Babcock said Franzen was sick and feeling nauseous, that's why he left after 2 periods.


Now he knows how most LGW members feel about him.

Can't blame Smith on that, I thought that call was pretty soft.

#2447112 10/21 GDT: Sharks 1 @ Red Wings 0 (SO)

I have to agree with Franzen looking good at C. He was definitely more noticeable with and without the puck, showed a lot of hustle imo, but in the 3rd he seemed more tired and more prone to mishandles. I'd like to see more of him at center.

#2446991 Ouellet Debut Tonight

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 22 October 2013 - 12:44 AM

Ouellet appears to be the real deal. If all goes according to plan, he and Sproul should be an excellent 2nd pairing in a couple of years.


Kronwall - Ericsson

Sproul - Ouellet

Kindl - Smith


Looks good to me!


B-but.... what about.... my bff, DeKeyser?

I think it's about time for Alfie to get his first goal  :siren:

Read my post again.  I never said the league fixes games, only that if one league did, it would be the NHL.  No accusation was made that Boston or Detroit were favored in any way.  


The only thing I claimed in my post, was that nearly every official in the league has a tendency to try and 'even-up' games by calling penalties against the team with the lead.  Whether this is intentional or not, I don't know, but I you're going to look like an idiot if you try to deny it.  Brad Watson happens to be one of the worst offenders of 'even-up' calls.  My guess is that he assumes the winning team is going to get complacent, and gives them more attention.  I'll have to take a look at his officiating history to see if it's a common trend in his games.  


I would argue that has more to do with the losing team playing with more intensity at points in the game and putting the winning team on their heels which may result in them drawing a penalty.


And as for the NHL being the one league you think that would fix games, I'd have to assume that all of the major sports leagues are paying close attention to that after the Donaghy scandal.

If the NHL were going to fix games, why would they waste time fixing games for a franchise that's going to win anyway?  Both Detroit and Boston are perennial contenders with strong fan bases.  If the fix was in, wouldn't you expect the NHL to help out Florida, Tampa, Dallas, or Phoenix (the team the NHL owned for years)?


Why the hell would you conspire to help a team that doesn't need it?


Conspiracy theories are stupid.


Well the point of fixing games is to make money from Vegas lines. With that said, I don't think NHL refs are fixing games. Just one of those games where the other team didn't have to kill a penalty, which happens from time to time.
