#2280775 Ex-Wing Watch Thread

Marian Hossa - 29G, 48A, 77pts in 81GP this season.

Meanwhile: Johan Franzen - 29G, 27A, 56pts in 77GP this season. Franzen usually shows up in the playoffs though, so I guess we'll see yet again what was the better choice.

Seriously, send Kindl down, bring Smith back up.

I really like Nyquist tonight. He's playing like he's got a mancrush on Pavel and wants to be his linemate for eternity.

#2269842 If you Could Change Five Outcomes in Hockey History

Posted by lookalive07 on 13 March 2012 - 10:44 PM

I don't think I could list five, but I will say I'd have liked the Pittsburgh/Carolina series in 2009 to go more than 4 games. Even though the Wings took the first two games of the series, Pittsburgh had a longer break because of the sweep, and it probably gave them more gas in the tank to do what we all know they ended up doing (I won't reiterate that story).

Am I mistaken, or was this the slowest burn of them all?

Slowest or greatest? I think they're pretty interchangeable in this case.

#2265295 Presidents Trophy

Posted by lookalive07 on 01 March 2012 - 02:31 AM

Actually a 1 in 4 chance is pretty significant considering 16 teams make it into the postseason

It's actually a lot less of a chance than that. Just because 7 out of 25 teams since its induction have won the President's Trophy have also won the Stanley Cup has nothing to do with the actual percentage that that particular team would win the playoffs that year. Since it's a lot of math and since each series has a number of different outcomes in terms of probability, I won't explain it all, but just trust me when I say that it is definitely not a little more than a 1 in 4 chance that a team is going to win the Stanley Cup just based on history of who has won both in a single season.

Sorry, nerd moment for the night. I get where you are coming from though. Based on history, it does indicate that a little over 25% of the teams that won the President's Trophy have also won the Cup that season, but it's not a cause and effect thing in terms of the playoff format.

#2265014 Brad Stuart's family issues

Posted by lookalive07 on 28 February 2012 - 10:25 PM

My 2 cents:

My girlfriend of almost 3 years got a job in Boston and I started graduate school in Ohio. Aside from my Spring Break, part of my Winter Break, and me hopefully getting an internship there in the summer, I don't see her. We decided to do long distance, which on a relationship between two people really, really sucks to not be able to see each other that much.

Comparing my situation to Stuart's makes mine look like af****** cakewalk, and I assure you, it isn't easy. The dude is married and has children and has to deal with essentially a full time job with a short amount of leisure in the Summers in the off season. I'm sure it's pretty psychologically draining and I can totally understand his reasons for likely wanting to sign somewhere a lot closer to home. He'd at least have a home to go back to for 41 games out of the year.

#2251826 How open would you be to trading Hank?

Posted by lookalive07 on 03 February 2012 - 11:45 AM

Which brings up a good point: We're #1 in the league while our star player is in a slump season.


It's scary to see that there are fans of this team that still aren't satisfied even though we're in 1st place overall in a "rebuilding" season.

#2250533 Bettman: 2013 ASG in Columbus

Posted by lookalive07 on 29 January 2012 - 06:47 AM

So what does that make Toledo?

America's anus?

Either way, I'm excited because I'll be in Ohio next year for my final year of grad school. I'll try to get tickets for sure.

#2250490 The SuperSkills competition is an embarrassment

Posted by lookalive07 on 28 January 2012 - 08:30 PM

Looks like all the players are having fun and I'm having fun watching it.

Except for the constant reminders that Sidney Crosby and Alex Ovechkin aren't there. And Pierre McGuire and Jeremy Roenick. They need to get some different commentators on the NBC family of networks.

When Nick Lidstrom takes a shower, he doesn't get wet. The water gets Nick Lidstrom.

Take a good look folks, that's likely the first and last time you'll ever see Hank get thrown out of a game.

#2244228 Pavel Datsyuk is lazy and he sucks.

He was completely invisible out there tonight!

Of course I'm kidding.

#2242127 Rupp 1st Goal, Then Salute at WC

Posted by lookalive07 on 07 January 2012 - 02:32 AM

IMO, any kind of "dance" or strange celebration outside of a fist pump or raising your arms up then hugging you teammates should be penalized in ALL sports. Score a goal, Homerun, Touchdown and dance around like a damn fool like you are bigger than the game then it's a penalty. I know they don't have penalties in baseball, but enough of the chest bumps and crazy handshakes. Enough of the endzone charades and dances and enough of the "salutes" and "discount double play's." Score, pump your fists, hug teammates, get congratulated and move on. Nothing ruins a great touchdown/goal/homerun more than the kind of stuff that goes on after. (not so much happens in hockey, but the other sports got to do something about it.)

:lol: :hysterical: at the negs. Thanks! I think I may just do a dance!

Go ahead and do a dance. Be happy you brought your team up by a point. Don't be indifferent when you did something that changed the game. especially when it's important.
