25% on the PK.....I'm no math wizard but that seems low.

:lol: yeah, I got the banhammer for a personal attack on myself. 



But weren't the Wings strong in the faceoff this season? Or am I making that up? 


They were 2nd in the league for half the season. Their strong possession numbers were driven by faceoff wins. A large offensive strategy was to just throw it on goal, and get an offensive zone faceoff and the carry possession.

The Leafs went 4-10-1 last March during their regular season collapse. The Wings are currently 4-7-1 in March. They are Leafing their way right out of the playoffs.

Detroit has become just awful at passing. It's been a problem most of the season.

Abbys moves so smooth he dekes himself out!

Did Ericsson look bad against Calgary and Boston?  I heard Weiss did. 


People like to blame Weiss for the 1st shorty, but he bobbled a s*** pass in the neutral zone. I blame the pass. The 2nd shorty was all on weiss.

see Im not sure if I like jurco on that line


He can now be creative because he has better line mates. It will pay off.

This is what I call Leafs hockey!

no goalie interference...dont tell me this is an Uncle Gary game...most penalized team in the league and Detroit hasn't got a PP yet.


Hard to draw penalties when you have possession for 4% of the time.

Can we all admit that there's a huge jump from the AHL to the NHL, that scoring a ton in the AHL doesn't mean a guy will score int he NHL, and sendPulinnen back down to learn how to do more than try to fire a slapper every time he touches the puck in the offensive zone?  Kid needs to settle the @#$& down instead of trying to shoot the puck through the goalie's chest every time.


No. He hasn't been bad. There comes a point when being a big fish in a small pond will stunt your growth. 


He'll figure things out, it takes more than 5 games to get acclimated with the NHL.

#2555811 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

I've always wondered if you could track down the Guiness Book of World Records fattest man, strap some pads on him, and just literally plug up the entire net with him. Is there a rule in the NHL rule book about this? Are there weight parameters that say "If the goalie is large enough that there is no longer an opening to the net, he cannot play in the NHL?". It surely would solve our shootout issues if there was no entrance to the net at all. 


If we can keep this thread respectful and on point about Howard's performance in shootouts, and his percentages indeed being among the lowest, it may continue. Let's keep it friendly, it is the holiday season after all. 




They did this on sports science.

Hopelessly outshoot the other team and make a bad goalie look like God - pretty par for the course. 

See, it DOES feel like '09!

Get off the goddamn ice franzen.

#2540431 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by Dave on 13 October 2014 - 08:55 AM

Rooting against? No. Wanting to see our best players play every game they can? Yes. It isn't my fault that Holland signed a overrated always hurt player. The new trend here is Babcock is doing what he has been saying: The best play regardless of age/contract status/experience etc..... That is something everyone should be excited about!


He's only played 26 games as a Red Wing.....26. Again, he's only played 26 games as a Red Wing. I can't imagine why anyone has written him off after only ~32% of a single season. It's just utter nonsense.

#2536656 Selanne would still play if Boudreau wasn't Ducks coach

I can't believe this thread is a fan of this guy





Hurr durr he's fat, what a piece of s***. 

The dude's teams were always president's trophy contenders.
