#2471199 It's time - to predict 2014 Team Canada

Posted by RyaN_84 on 07 January 2014 - 11:57 AM

 

s***, we split with you in Vancouver on North American ice (which clearly favored the bigger team compared to the faster one).  On international ice your boys are going to get pretty tired chasing around guys who can actually skate.  Huge mistake taking too many of Getz, Perry, Nash, Marleau, etc.  Should have stuck with guys like Couture, Giroux, etc. 

 

Your boys are going to be gassed.

well to be fair i think couture was left off was because of his injury.
 

and are you really seriously think USA stands a chance against Canadas team?!  :lol:  :hysterical:  :taunt:  :hysterical: 

i laugh 




#2471113 24/7 Episode 4 Discussion

Posted by Euro_Twins on 06 January 2014 - 08:13 PM

Seems like they covered the leafs players a bit more, got a lot more of them goofing around, playing ping pong, and so on. I was really looking forward to seeing pasha in this series, but i don't think he even said a word really, he must have a very good hiding spot. Apparently wings players are very dull and never goof around, the coaches stood out more then the players or games in most episodes, and the only wing they really covered was alfie. Overall 3/10, very poorly done, I expected much better from HBO, they screwed the pooch on this one. When I find myself bored and contemplating shutting off the tv, about 20 minutes into an hour long episode that involves the red wings, something is very wrong. 3rd episode was the best, other 3 episodes sucked. no alumni game coverage, no real hook, or draw in the show, I may as well have watched the kardashians




#2470448 WinterFest/ Winter classic Final thoughts

Posted by Mitchmac33 on 04 January 2014 - 12:26 AM

What an amazing game/atmosphere.  I couldn't stop smiling the whole game. It was amazing.  I was row six section 1 right next to the tunnel on the Leafs side and it was absolutely awesome.  The view of the rink wasn't the greatest but I got to high five and talk to many people who are "celebs" in the hockey community.  The end sucks, and i've had one person try to ruin the event for me by rubbing it it, but it was so amazing that no one can take away how awesome the game was.  

 

I didn't have any problems with the bathroom.  I went up once and it was a pretty long line, but I was in and out in less than five minutes.  I also was in the Leafs section and the fans around me were great.  I talked to the guys behind me (Leafs fans) for the whole game and had a good time.  Only had one Leafs fan try talkin smack on the walk out of the stadium but many Wings fans were there to point out the Leafs "recent" Cup woes haha.

I don't, but I'll use this as the discussion thread if you don't mind, and if there is a link, someone will post it.  But it seems like they've cracked down on it being online.

 

In any case, episode 4 was mildly interesting, getting a little more into the Dad's trip.  I kind of feel like Babs has used this as Cleary PR to show his toughness and his leadership.  He has played better of late, but still would not break my heart to see him go.

 

In general, for me, the series was a bit of a disappointment.  Just little bits and pieces and teases, but they'd never really explore any story line enough.  Just not very in depth or anything different or things that we haven't seen before. I'm not offended at all by salty language, I'm quite adept at using the f word, but even I got sick of it this episode.  Just too much.

 

I looked so forward to this for 2 years and it was pretty much a let down.  What did I expect?  I don't know, just more and better, I guess.

Zetterberg with a laser. I'm going to be greedy and ask for curly fries.

Wow that was a nice one-timer.  Beauty pass from Cleary.  Yup, I just complemented Cleary.

Howard's toe save in the 2nd was ridiculoso!

I was telling everyone that if were to go to any of these games it would have been the Alumni not the WC.

There's just no reason for this. C'mon Babs, switch Jurco and Tatar. I'm a fan of Tatar but Jurco's far better in every case!


Jurco hasn't "earned" the top line, Tatar has. Tatar also won the AHL MVP on Jurco's team so I don't where you get this "far better" stuff from.

The babs hate is unreal. U guys r silly


It's not hate. This has been an issue with Babs for awhile now. He's beyond stubborn with some players getting undeserved minutes, but won't promote two offensive playmakers on a team that struggles to score goals. Nyquist on the fourth line is embarrassing.

Wings projected lines -

Bertuzzi-Datsyuk-Jurco
Abdelkader-Zetterberg-Alfredsson
Helm-Andersson-Nyquist
Glendening-Cleary-Miller

Kronwall-DeKeyser
Smith-Lashoff
Quincey-Kindl

There is no reason for Abdelkader on the 2nd line when Tatar is out scoring him with less games. But, I did always imagine Babcock as a child spending hours trying to jam a square peg into a round hole.

Posted by esteef on 18 December 2013 - 08:28 PM

Sammy is over 35 so even if he clears waiver his cap doesn't provide much relief... around 1K but I'm not sure.

 

Screw the cap, we just want him gone.
