Hudler/Filppula(if you have to)+Kindl+Pick for Carey Price, and you wouldn't have to worry about the goaltending situation for over a decade, the kid is only 23 years old.


Price is not even top 10 in any stat other than Wins, not to mention he lets in weaker goals than any other goalie in existence.

Honestly. What is the rivalry thing? Crosby and Ovechkin do not even have a rivalry. I'm pretty sure both of them have no real personal feelings for one another at all.


Difference between Ovie and Crosby and the compared rivalries:

Ovie and Crosby will not face each other for the Stanley Cup so long as they both play in the same conference. Therefore its pointless at this point, they will probably never battle for the biggest prize in Hockey.

why doesnt babs put the old defensive lines back together? cause theyre obv not working now

lids raf
kron stu
E salei


I don't understand why he doesn't, its really starting to piss me off. Raffi is making a ton of mistakes, I would rather Lidstrom be the one to cover them than any other D on the team. Stuart is more of a defensive defensemen and Kronner is more offensive, it only makes sense they player together not to mention the chemistry they used to have was good. It really suprises me a coach like him hasn't already tried to fix the big problem with the team so far and thats the defense, there getting caught 2 on1 all the time, turning the puck over in there own zone WAY too much, not getting the puck up ice like we've seen the last few years.

He keeps messing around with the forward lines, it just makes sense if thats not working to try the defensive pairings as thats where alot of the mistakes have been made in the last 5 or so games. One of the biggest things this year that has pissed me off the most though is the D not clearing the front of the net. The last 2 games 4 goals have been resulted in people standing in front of the net left wide open (Kesler to Sedin twice, and 2 deflections from 2 different St Louis players). You can blame the goaltenders only so long, but if the turnovers in there own zone don't exist and the players screening/deflecting shots in front of the net are eliminated the team would have won majority of the games this month imo.

Shooting weak shots from the circle with no traffic isn't very impressive.


but when Philly does it then its ok ? What happened to this so called amazing goalie Price when Detroit faced him ? why don't you do everyone a favour and go sign up on a Philly forum instead and leave here.


#2081125 Chicago fans last night

Posted by darkmanx on 19 December 2010 - 01:16 AM

How can anyone expect me or anyone else to be all polite and talk hockey when some of your posters post things like this? ^^

I would love to see how many of your "fans" would stick around if Detroit started losing and lost for years and years and years. Would all thse "loyal" fans still pack the arenas? My guess would be NO. Just because we didnt sell out every night, or have massive crowds during the "down" years doesnt mean that because we NOW do that they are all just bandwagon fans. IMO Detroit fans have no leg to stand on because most of them havent been fans long enough to comment on being a "true" fan. You havemade the playoffs, what, 20 straight seasons? Of course your fanbase has HUGE support, becaus they havent had to deal with all these losing seasons. Detroit has put a good product on the ice for TWO DECADES. Chicago finally has gotten their heads out of their asses ad put a good product on the Ice, so guess what, the fans are now showing up. This is not an excuse, its reality. People arent going to fork over their hard earned money to watch trash every night.

Just wait, Detroit WILL have down years, and we will see just howf****** loyal your fanbase is then.


Funny you say that because I live in Toronto and they have the most loyal fans and they sellout every night. Those are true fans although I hate to admit it, even though they are well aware of what the organization is doing they still show up to cheer on there players. Same can be said about NYR, they were there during there years when they werent playoff material. Sorry to say but thats a pretty lame excuse.


#2076791 Which Is the Better Team?

Posted by darkmanx on 12 December 2010 - 07:25 PM

1st place in the league


That matters alot come playoff time right ? Isn't that why they play the game.. for the regular season record....

Draper already more of an impact in the first 20 minutes than Hudler has been the last 2 games.


#2075290 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by darkmanx on 10 December 2010 - 05:57 PM

Toronto fans are the worst, so I don't feel sorry for them at all. All they do is chirp if they see you wearing a team other than the Leafs, you can't even have a serious conversation with them. I remember going to the bar for Game 7 in the 09 Finals and all the Leaf fans there used tape and put the name Crosby all over there leaf jerseys and constantly bickered about the Wings getting easy runs to the Cup lol. I think its like majority of the fans in the NHL, they envy Detroit for there success in the last 20 years for the most recent. Any Wing fan in Ontario can probably tell you the same thing, and you think there loyal but really hate the team and want to trade everyone on it when they start losing.

What is that 6 or 7 shots on Howard already ?

what kinda pass was that ? was obviously going to be icing.


#2073955 12/8 GDT: Predators 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by darkmanx on 08 December 2010 - 07:44 AM

Is Hudler seriously starting again tonight ? Put Draper in on the fourth and move Eaves up or something.

Man, Osgood should have went out there and stick lifted Williams.

Price has started 21 games already and he's still awesome.

Just because there are odd-man rushes and a pk for the wigns the opponents doesn't have to score, a goalie can make a good save, you know?

On some here it sounds as though whenever there is a rush by the other team be it 2on1, 3on2 etc it's an automatic goal and nothing the goalie can do about it, get real, it doesn't have to be.

Howard has been absolutely brutal, yes the wings defense has been sloppy too at times but a goalie can still make up for it by making saves.

The goaltending situation kills this team in games like these.


it doesn't help when your defensemen is commiting to the player with the puck instead of covering the other player on a 2 on 1 situation which happened twice, how is the goalie supposed to anticipate the pass or shot when hes out of position because of it. Hockey 101, cover the open man.
