#2567813 Ovechkin joins elite company

Posted by korrowan on 02 February 2015 - 02:07 PM


How so?  A winger is not typically as good defensively as a center.  It's not his game.  If you look at the other top wingers ranked around Ovechkin (guys like Jagr, Lafleur, Bossy), I don't remember them being Selke candidates either.


The team has failed because other than him, few guys show up in the playoffs.  The Capitals historically are a bad playoff team.  Apparently, one guy can't change that.  


Well I have only really been a Wings fan and if Tatar or Nyquist or pretty much any other winger not named Franzen played like Ovechkin did/does they wouldn't be around.  Two way players is in my opinion the only way hockey should be played and all the rest of those guys are one trick ponies who sit in the slot or on the dot most the game waiting for a good pass or cherry pick waiting for a pass to score easy.  Just not my thing.

#2561401 Nyquist Fined for Diving/Embellishment

Posted by korrowan on 07 January 2015 - 06:32 PM

The first one clearly is not a dive.  He thought there was a guy to lean on and there was nothing but air and he crashed and burned.  Its not his fault the idiot ref called a penalty for him falling down.

#2540779 Monthly schedule wallpapers?

Posted by korrowan on 15 October 2014 - 09:49 AM


I make sure and send my fiance gets a copy as well.


That way when she says,

"There's a game tonight too?!?"

I can say,

"There sure is!! Do you need me to send you anothe copy of the schedule?"

I do that with my wife but on google calender.  Its always on her phone so if she doesn't know it its her own fault!

#2460960 12/4 GDT : Flyers 6 at Red Wings 3

I'd rather have Tootoo out then than Cleary...

I would rather have a monkey on skates out there instead of Cleary.. at least the monkey would be amusing while being devoid of talent.

Tatar was on a line that scored while playing with 2 guys that cannot finish.  Sure he made some mistakes but getting rid of him would be really bad with guys like Sammy, KFQ and Cleary on it.

Nyquist would have buried those.

We gotta find his twitter and blow it up.


Announcers that make asinine statements like that when a player's hurt should be fined and/or suspended.

#2311228 The Grass Is Always Greener - Johan Franzen

Posted by korrowan on 29 June 2012 - 05:38 PM

IMHO, Franzen "floats" a lot less than people here say who "watch the games". He is not paid for speed. He is paid to be a power forward.

To be a power forward you cannot be afraid the crease and actually check someone. Franzen avoids going within 10 feet of the net most of the game.

#2291925 Will Detroit win this series?

Posted by korrowan on 18 April 2012 - 12:30 AM

Lol @ anyone who has 'faith' in this team. Have you not watched this team since February? They haven't beat anyone and just let the Predators have home ice. They obviously don't really want it.

#2291923 What's Kenny Holland's Offseason Plan?

Posted by korrowan on 18 April 2012 - 12:28 AM

This team is boned. Holland resigned Bert which was a huge mistake as he has done nothing but that so called fight against Weber. Franzen is useless and for being this big time playoff guy has done squat in the last 2 playoffs. If Lids leaves this team becomes seriously mediocre and I doubt Holland will be able to get anyone like Suter or Parise as any FA would obviously see the ship is sinking. Making the playoffs is meaningless if you just squander you opportunities not only at the end of the regular season but then in the playoffs. This team needs kids that have passion like many other teams have. All these old guys they keep resigning will get them no where.

When the Predators scored the first goal tonight I wanted to hang myself for recording this game and staying up late to watch the Wings fail to finish for 2 periods and then hand the Predators the game...again even though I know that is par for the course.

This is what happens when you give players 2500 dollar fines for targeting the head instead of games.

Let's not sink to that level.

These guys are dirt bags. THey could all leave in ambulances and I wouldn't care.

Lol Sheahan an amateur dentist. That was a good line!

#2277002 Quincey suspended 1 game

Posted by korrowan on 02 April 2012 - 04:42 PM

Quincey could be suspended for 30 games and I don't think any of us would actually notice or care.

#2273844 3/24 GDT : Hurricanes 4 at Red Wings 5

Posted by korrowan on 25 March 2012 - 08:02 AM

Are they back? That game minus some sloppy defense was Red Wings hockey and it was great to see that it still exists. Lets hope they continue that trend!
