#2595276 Game Two - Honest Discussion

Posted by Frozen-Man on 17 April 2015 - 03:36 PM

The idea that we should say "No one played good at forward" does not excuse Tatar and Nyquist…That's crazy.

It does however negate your suggestion that they should be the ones benched.

The whole enforcer protecting the team era was in response to the lawlessness on the ice. The rules didn't protect players, so the players did. Now the league has rules to curb this lawlessness, which makes the role of the enforcer semi-obsolete.


The enforcer era is not coming back. It's going to move farther and father from that despite whatever protests you (and including myself) have. The sooner one accepts this, the sooner one can move past it.


Hockey isn't becoming soccer. Hockey is becoming hockey. Fighting is part of hockey's history, but at the end of the day it's a side-show within the sport. Trust me, that pains me to admit.


If you want to watch good fights, do what I do and follow the UFC. Hockey and fighting are going to split. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not in 10 years from now, but we all know it's going to happen eventually. Enjoy it while we have it. The game is evolving, and it's going to leave us 80's and 90's fans in the dust if we don't evolve with it.

Sure I'll take that concussion or broken bone or some other lifelong debilitating injury so Joe blow can be extremely happy...for 5 seconds.

Speed and defense wins games. If you want to watch goons, watch wrestling.

Ha. I told you it was crazy. It's just a thought.
I don't know. Maybe the Kindl thing is a bit off. I'll be the first to say I wanted Marchenko in and the first to say he looked iffy at best.
Tatar or Nyquist need to be taught accountability. In my opinion. 

Ahh yes. Because benching our 2 leading goal scorers after one game of the playoffs for not scoring makes a ton of sense. Also, they didn't play a lot on the third because we were short handed for most of it.

Andersson makes me sick to my stomach when he's out there. Literally the anti-offense.

#2592840 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 13 April 2015 - 10:01 AM

Given last year's disappointing exit from the playoffs, I'd say success with a caveat - they could have finished much stronger had they kept playing like they did November thru January...


They even improved their standing.  Improvement is always a good thing.

Sens are the most likely team to upset, but I wouldn't be surprised if they get swept, either. They just aren't that good, and Hammond will come back to earth soon.

They aren't that good but neither are the Canadiens, they completely live and die with Price. In this case I hope it's die.

#2592662 The Future

Posted by rick zombo on 12 April 2015 - 12:47 PM


That's what happens when you make the playoffs 24 years straight, you don't always have sure things. Kenny has done an amazing job building and retooling this team. Others might disagree because they are spoiled and don't get the new shiny toy every year like we used to get.


Holland and the scouts are the reason this team is still relevant.


Blashill and the Griffins management, in general, deserve a ton of credit as well.

I like the choice he's been solid in most games he's played.

#2592105 Definition of a real fan

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 April 2015 - 04:20 PM

To me it's very simple a real fan is someone who is sticking with his team through thick and thin,  the good and the bad times. The problem is, some people are confusing the term real fan with fanboy but they aren't the same. A fanboy will go out of his ways both verbally to defend every move his chosen does make or doesn't make while a real fan will look at things more rationally and also criticize some moves if he feels it's justified.


So basically a real fan is the opposite of a bandwagoner.


I think most people here who complain do stick with the team through think and thin.  Otherwise, they'd stop posting, because they'd have stopped watching this mediocre team by now.  The fact that they post means they still watch and care.  


Then again, the two greatest philosophers in history were both pessimists, so I'm all for it.
