#2115076 2/11 GDT: Red Wings 6 at Bruins 1

IMHO, the more Wings fans on this board that also have played hockey is a bonus. Those kinds of fans are hard to find. I swear that 75-80% of american hockey fans haven't even skated.

i fixed that for you.

#2114349 2/9 GDT: Predators 4 at Red Wings 1

Posted by atodaso on 10 February 2011 - 05:14 PM

in 50 games the 08 team was 36-10-4

in 50 games this team is 31-13-6

5 fewer wins, 3 more losses, and 2 more OT losses. thats not TOO far off. this team has the ability to play great hockey, we saw that in the first 2 months of the season. im not ready to release the hounds on them like a lot of people seem to want to do, but they do have to start playing better, that much is obvious.

i agree, and it's so damn frustrating to watch right now. i think that's why a lot of us seem like we're giving up on the team.

however, this team is not even close to being as good as the '08 team. i watched every single game in '08 and the wings looked alright (most of the time) in losses.

to put it bluntly: "..or you got it, or you ain't"

this team 'ain't got IT' (prove me wrong, wings)

What about 08-09?


in 50 games the 08 team was 36-10-4

in 50 games this team is 31-13-6

5 fewer wins, 3 more losses, and 2 more OT losses. thats not TOO far off.

but in 54 games:

'08 team 40-10-4 84 points
'11 team 32-16-6 70 points

that is far off. and besides that, it's not just about the team record. it's about how they play. if the playoffs started today the wings would lose in the first round.

#2098763 Holmstrom suffers a broken hand

Posted by atodaso on 16 January 2011 - 06:16 PM

On mlive, Ansar Khan:

"...Holmstrom will be out three-to-four weeks after suffering a broken right hand late in Friday's game. On Saturday, he saw a hand specialist, who determined surgery is not needed."

homer is so tough he scared his hand into healing faster

#2095431 Osgood Out 6-8 Weeks

Posted by atodaso on 10 January 2011 - 10:34 PM

Damn ... good thing he got his 400th win when he did!

Is Hasek available? :lol:

nothing to laugh at there. i wish the wings would bring him back. i'm certain he can still get it done.

#2093445 Stuart out 6-8 weeks with broken jaw

Posted by atodaso on 08 January 2011 - 05:27 AM

It's funny. Reading the game day thread on the Calgary boards, you wouldn't even know Kostopolous hit anyone let alone broke someone's jaw. They literally have said nothing about it.

the thing is flames fans are delusional when it comes to their team. before the season started flames fans actually thought they had a good team, a playoff team. throughout this season, you would read articles in the paper that asked "what's wrong with the flames?" and "when are things going to turn around?", etc. ever since 2004, flames fans have had an unwarranted sense of entitlement (something other fan bases accuse us of, only in our case we have a reason for feeling this way), as if their team is supposed to be a contender every single year. when the flames play bad, their fans wonder why.

but the flames playing style has been the same since 2004. clutch, grab, hit, slash, fight, dump it in, get a rebound goal, etc. this type of hockey isn't going to get you the cup in today's nhl. but this is all that at least half of their fans know because they've only been 'fans' since 2004. this is why most of them defend hits like the one tonight. they think it's just good, old tough western-alberta hockey.
which is one of the reasons why i hate the flames. in fact, i think for most of us, our 'hatred' of other teams is based mainly on the way their fans think and act.

either way, the flames will be golfing in april, and that feels good.

Jimmy "My team has to score five goals to win" Howard.

Seriously Babcock. Time to give Ozzie more than one start in a row. It can't be worse.

i know what you were trying to say but i think his name should be Jimmy "The Rebound" Howard

#2079108 Cheerleaders for Canadian NHL team a first

Posted by atodaso on 15 December 2010 - 10:29 PM

Andrew Krystal on the FAN590 today was commenting on the Edmonton Cheerleaders. I'm not the this type of guy, but I found what he said funny! He mentioned the Edmonton cheerleaders were a little over weight and said, "Tell these women they have 1% milk now", and added, "These are the kind of girls if you're dating them and someone sees you with them in your car, you make up an excuse saying, 'No she's not my girl friend, she's dating my buddy and needed a ride to the airport'".


this andrew sounds like a loser to me
