#2289806 The Official NHL Suspension Thread

Posted by ogreslayer on 17 April 2012 - 01:54 PM

The 'Hawks Andrew Shaw gets 3 games for his shoulder hitting Mike Smith's mask as he was trying to squeeze past him behind the net. IMO, incidental contact & he wasn't head hunting. That gets 3 games yet trying to put a player's head through the glass after the final horn warrants nothing but a $2500 fine? Oh NHL, the more you change, the more you stay the same.


#2289613 Preds not allowed to play ping pong at Joe Louis Arena

Posted by ogreslayer on 17 April 2012 - 10:04 AM

Step 1: Take away ping pong table
Step 2: Pelt the Preds during the pre-game warmup with ping pong balls
Step 3: Victory!


#2286034 I guarantee we win this series

Posted by ogreslayer on 13 April 2012 - 09:23 PM

Yeah I'm a tool for voicing my opinion

Nice to see we're all in agreement on that. Off to the next thread then...


#2286024 David Krejci assaulted by pane of glass

Posted by ogreslayer on 13 April 2012 - 09:20 PM

Did the pane go for a second hit after not getting a solid one on the first?


#2285975 WCQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 3, at Nashville Predators 2

Throwing towels on the ice after the loss? Way to live up to your name Trashville fans.


#2283592 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by ogreslayer on 12 April 2012 - 01:25 PM

So let's see if I get this...

Weber INTENTIONALLY slams Z's face into the boards/glass with the intention of injuring him. There is NO OTHER EXPLAINABLE REASON for doing what he did other than to injure him. BUT, Z was not injured. So therefore, no suspension.

I'm sure Weber was simply trying to show Hank just how clean the staff at Bridgestone Arena keeps the glass from a closer angle. :ph34r:


#2280653 Dan Cleary openly admits to being at 50%

Posted by ogreslayer on 09 April 2012 - 06:04 PM

Come on Babs, you're the same guy that had the balls to pull Hasek for Osgood during a round 1 series. Don't tell me you can't do the same with a 50% Dan Cleary. Well, not pull him for Osgood but when I think about it, maybe even Osgood would be more effective than a 50% Cleary at this point.

#2276396 Detroit has inside track on Parise

Posted by ogreslayer on 01 April 2012 - 01:13 PM

I think it'll happen either way. Here's why: As far as I know the 2012 summer UFA class is the best there's been in years. And I'm betting there won't be another great class like this in the next year or two, which means this summer is the only truly great chance we have to replace Lidstrom without losing anything other than money. Obviously a free agent signing is a better option than a trade, and Holland is going to make that push whether Lidstrom retires or not.

After all, Lidstrom's only going to be around for another year (maybe) and you still need him replaced. Better to do it now, enjoy one super-amazing year, and then already have his replacement locked in when he retires.

From everything I've seen & heard, most people are saying it's a weak FA class once you get past Suter & Parise. That's why I'm thinking the Wings get neither. You'll have a bunch of other teams willing to overpay them & kill their team's salary cap management in the process and that's not something Kenny's been willing to do in the past. Personally, I think Suter ends up back in Nashville after the team has a good playoff run this year & Parise ends up signing for big money somewhere not named Detroit.


#2274839 3/28 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Blue Jackets 4

Posted by ogreslayer on 28 March 2012 - 01:18 PM

As per Bob McKenzie on Twitter:



York/Hunwick tandem? Oh my...

I would pay good money to see an entire game of Homer screening Hunwick.


#2273849 National Anthems in Ottawa

Posted by ogreslayer on 25 March 2012 - 09:17 AM

Well that's what happens when you bring in someone from RuPaul's Drag Race to sing the National Anthems before a game I guess.


#2269502 The reason The Wings shipped Mike Commodore

Posted by ogreslayer on 13 March 2012 - 09:40 AM

How likely is it that we sign a college kid and call him right up? Just doesn't seem like the Red Wing way.

Pretty likely given they did the same thing w/ Abby the year he signed out of State. Granted that was at the end of the season & he started the next down in GR. I could easily see the same thing with DeKeyser. Get him some playing time with the big club by the end of the season if Western doesn't make it into/far into the NCAAs, keep him around as a Black Ace during the playoffs, & have him start off in GR the next season when Lids desides to come back for another run.


#2262970 next years cap

Posted by ogreslayer on 26 February 2012 - 10:29 AM

If the new CBA includes a reduction/restructuring of the cap, there more than likely would be a buyout process that teams would use to get under it so I don't think next year's cap will serve as a hindrance. Who knows, maybe Kenny would decide to buy out Franzen after trading for someone who will actually play like he gives a s*** for 82 games a season.


#2262968 Ericsson out One Month

Posted by ogreslayer on 26 February 2012 - 10:16 AM

Kindl.

His play of late means he's above Commodore. He played in 8 straight IIRC prior to Quincey arriving.

Or that means they were trying to showcase him for a potential trade.


#2262942 Ericsson out One Month

Posted by ogreslayer on 26 February 2012 - 03:33 AM

Are people more in favor of Kindl or Commodore?

I'll take Smith instead
