#2270661 Call the team out

Posted by LeftWinger on 15 March 2012 - 06:55 PM

Once again, a user neggs and is too yellow to debate!

Anyhow, Calling Out now will be useless....change is needed if the players don't show up come playoffs. There are "certain" players who take most nights off. They score in bunches and are very VERY inconsistent. If this team gets eliminated in the first round. Anyone not named Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Smith, Howard, Helm, Abdelkader and Kronwall should be "available." Trade the entire team? No, but no serious offer will be unheard. Unfortunately the guys I listed will probably be the only ones asked about....

Quincey is terrible.

Neg away but I want Ericsson back.

I'm sorry, but this is the worst red wings team I have seen in many years. I've been saying it all year. Most of their wins are only by one goal and with the powerplay the way it is right now, they're not going anywhere in the playoffs.

so we still have:

- a mediocre PP that is desperately lacking a right-handed shooter
- a dogs*** 4th line that plays 5 minutes a night
- only 2 guys that can actually win a faceoff

wonderful.


I hate biting on this, but GTFO. Either your parents need to take your computer away, beat you, or both.

GO ROOT FOR ANOTHER TEAM IF THIS IS SO BAD.

That goes for you, too, Korrowan and Leonard. No wonder everyone thinks Wings fans are *******.

In this day and age, it's impressive for any team to win 20 in a row at home. And we have a chance to add to it.

However, I think it's fair to point out that the '76 Flyers played before there were overtimes, let alone shootouts. They won 20 in a row at home in "regulation". Of course I'll get negged for this post, but I like hockey history and think it's important to point that out. Same thing with Brodeur breaking Parent's wins in a season record. The shootout has put a different spin on records.

Lastly, I've never been a big believer in needing home ice, but this year it might be more important than ever before. The Wings are unbeatable at home but very average on the road. They need to keep rolling and secure first in the West.

2nd period needs more Jan.


#2248962 1/23 GDT : Blues 1 at Red Wings 3

Oh, I'm sorry. Can we not discuss the game in the game day thread?
Just calling them as I see them my friend.
Sorry if that rubs you the wrong way.

You can talk about the game day thread, but when you get on a pedastal about refereeing in a game where your team was behind the entire third period on our own board, you are going to come off as petty.

This is a Red Wings board and it is going to be biased no matter what you say. And if you have been paying attention most bitching has been during losses has been in regards to the team's play, and not marginal calls that don't directly affect the outcome of the game.

And it's a significant thing to bring up, since both instances I am referring to led to Red Wing power play goals. It directly effected the outcome of the game. So, yes, I'm annoyed by it...you guys would be if it were the other way around. I've seen plenty of bitching in here about the reffing over the years.
If neither call or non-call led to anything on the scoreboard, it wouldn't be as much of an issue...but, unfortunately, that wasn't the case.

You can be annoyed. Just don't expect anyone here to sympathize. You've been involved in little trash talk with us so we are going to enjoy extending our lead against you and call you out when you resort to petty discussions about penalties.

Let's not forget that the Blues had opportunities to score on their own powerplays and didn't. They scored one goal off a bad line change and didn't find the back of the net for the rest of the game.


#2240989 Rupp 1st Goal, Then Salute at WC

Posted by LeftWinger on 03 January 2012 - 12:03 PM

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!

Somebody get out there and help Jimmy, he can't win this game on his own. Nice saves but that won't score any goals.

Lol thats a pretty dumb comment. I am sure they could care less what some random fan thinks.. I sure would not. Hell I don't care what you think of me either. Either way as I said if he plays well I will eat crow as I am man enough to admit I was wrong but Saturday left a bad taste in my mouth.



It's going to have to be one hell of a third period. I'll tell you that.

Lol indeed. No crow eating for me.


If you don't care what others on this forum think, then why are making this effort?

Posted by Electrophile on 26 October 2011 - 08:17 AM

It must suck to be happy the team lost so you can say "I told you so" about one player. Geez Louise. Imagine if we'd won and Conks made 65 saves - we'd never hear from this guy again.


#2218636 Jimmy Howard will miss Tuesday's Game

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 26 October 2011 - 08:24 AM

Nah. Then it'd be "Howard doesn't care enough to be the #1 goalie."

Sometimes teams play bad games. You all know this by now. I don't know why some of you can't live by it. If you really need inspiration, think back to the several times that the Stanley Cup-winning '07-'08 Red Wings squad lost to the then-lowly Blackhawks.
