Kevin Porter scores 2 min in... Mantha with the primary assist after he steals the puck away in Rockford's zone


So Devellano gets the secondary assist then?


#2597342 Datsyuk Finalist for Lady Byng

Along with Kopitar and Happy Hudler. Let's hope he can be mean to Tampa's Cup hopes though.


#2596508 Abdelkader to return for Game 3

Posted by Nevermind on 19 April 2015 - 12:43 AM

I would go with...

Helm-Datsyuk-Tatar
Abdelkader-Zetterberg-Nyquist
Weiss-Sheahan-Pulkinnen
Miller-Glendening-Jurco

But I'm guessing the bottom six will be this instead...

Andersson-Sheahan-Jurco
Miller-Glendening-Ferraro


#2593541 ECQF : (7) Sénateurs d'Ottawa vs. (2) Les Canadiens de Montréal

I think Subban lacks maturity, but I didn't see the viciousness there for it to be 5 and a game.

Definitely a stupid play and a minor penalty, but not worse.

Is there an application I can fill out for the vacant GM position in Toronto? Afraid I may be overqualified though.


#2592548 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Posted by Nevermind on 11 April 2015 - 09:57 PM

Before the season: Success

At the trade deadline: Disappointing


#2591796 Red Wings clinch 24th consecutive Playoff appearance

Posted by Nevermind on 09 April 2015 - 09:49 PM

Stepping back, I'm proud of keeping the streak alive. But I don't know think anyone's happy about the quality of play since the trade deadline.

I believe we can now only match up against TB, MTL, or NYR. So let's flip that switch next week!

You could have made the ball a little bigger even. Howard would get out of the way.

What's he at now? 28? 29?


29


#2588246 4/2 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2

Weiss scratched next game.


#2585596 3/26 GDT: Sharks 6 at Red Wings 4

Weiss with a big f*** off to Mike Babcock.


#2584661 3/24 GDT : Coyotes 5 at Red Wings 4 (OT)

Posted by Nevermind on 24 March 2015 - 08:36 PM

Tatar! Kindl actually does a great job getting pucks through. Probably his only strength.


What is Brendan Smith's strength? I think it's that he's realgud.


#2584250 Ilya Kovalchuk announces retirement

Posted by Nevermind on 23 March 2015 - 08:34 PM

Even if we have a chance, I'm not really interested in spending the $7 million or whatever it would take to sign him to a long-term deal. Besides, if Babcock is still coach he might roll something like this...

Kovalchuk-Glendening-Miller/Andersson


#2578944 Mike Green is using a stick that was discontinued almost a decade ago

Posted by Nevermind on 05 March 2015 - 08:57 AM

The Wings should buy up as many of those sticks as possible. That way he'd have no choice but to sign with us in the off-season.


#2574318 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by Nevermind on 24 February 2015 - 09:57 AM

 
Because he was pissed off and it was a rivalry game?  I'm not sure why you think that's some sort of objective standard by which to measure fighting's impact on the game.  Furthermore, as I've stated before, if you want to understand how one variable impacts another, you use science...not an interview with Claude Lemieux.  Scientific research has consistently shown that fighting does not positively impact the game.  The fact that a bunch of people say otherwise doesn't mean anything unless they're qualified to say so professionally and empirically.  For quite a long time everybody just "knew" that the sun orbited the earth, and the world was flat.  It was common knowledge...duh. 
 
Science says fighting is harmful for the individual and unnecessary for the game.  I don't really give a s*** what the athletes say.  These are the same types of guys who still regularly use sterdoids, chewing tobacco, etc.  They're not exactly to be trusted for their keen insights and objective thinking. 

I agree that fighting is harmful in that it can leave a player with long-term issues related to concussions, brain trauma, etc. If that's your only argument, fine.

But to say a genuine fight doesn't impact a hockey game is silly. That's like saying a big hit or shot block doesn't affect the momentum of a game either. Or the crowd even. There are too many variables and differing scenarios that a scientific study won't be able to capture this.

Also, chemistry and camaraderie are vital to any hockey club. Sticking up for your linemate after a dirty hit is part of being a good teammate. You don't think that brings a team closer together?
