I'm far



Are you for real in Buffalo?  How has all that snow been

I'm far enough out where it hasn't effected me or my business. Yet some people near me can't get out of their house. It's crazy out here. I miss Detroit.

Ouellette is noticeable out there in a good way. Great start for a guy with less than 5 NHL games

Now this is the Weiss they wanted. 

#2551533 Saluting the fans

Posted by kipwinger on Yesterday, 01:50 PM

You know that isn't a realistic idea, right. There's so many hockey fans in and around Toronto they would still sell out even if a large amount of fans stopped buying tickets in some kind of protest. 


With that in mind, maybe it's a little more understandable why leaf fans use their own stupid forms of protest (paperbag masks, jersey on ice, general douchebaggery)


Then they're doomed to always be as bad as they are.  Good.  I don't care, I'm not a Toronto fan.  But I do find it hilarious that these goobers think they deserve a salute after each game.  For what?  Being too dumb to recognize a bad investment?

#2551528 Saluting the fans

Posted by haroldsnepsts on Yesterday, 01:35 PM

Is it the fans really or is it the media blowing it out of proportion?  Either is possible - even likely!  Throw a dart, it's the right answer.


I don't think saluting should be done other than at the last home game of the season, win or lose.




If you do it every game or after every win, it becomes more of an obligation than something actually meaningful. 

#2551523 Inconsistency

Posted by gcom007 on Yesterday, 01:14 PM


Of course we're not a better team.  I'm just saying that you can't pin loses on the failure to have Datsyuk in the lineup.  We don't have too many loses without Datsyuk in the lineup.  So far, the fact that our impressive wins are punctuated by loses isn't due to Datsyuk's absence, because thus far when he's been gone we've won more often than lost.  That's all I'm saying. 


I'm definitely not saying that, I'm just saying it doesn't help matters either. We need to get our kids playing like they are capable no matter who's in the lineup, and no one would ever really say that we're a better team without Datsyuk. The sooner the team gets used to playing as a mostly-complete team, as in not missing major pieces like Datsyuk, the better we'll be. It just boils down to inexperience and lack of familiarity with roles to me.


See above.  I didn't say they're a better team.  I said they've won more than lost with him absent.  As such, it's hard to blame the loses on his absence.


I know, I meant it more generally. Believe me, I don't think anyone on this forum in their right mind is going to say such a thing and mean it.

Don't know if it's a good idea to throw Weiss immediately against Top 6 competition. He will need some time, probably at least the rest of the season, to adjust. I also would change Abby and Jurco. The former is playing great right now while the latter isn't consistent enough to be Top 6 material yet.


Giving also Dats is back I'd roll with :


Nyquist - Zetterberg - Franzen

Tatar - Datsyuk - Abdelkader

Sheahan - Weiss - Jurco

Miller - Glendening - Helm

Highlights including Mantha's goal.


#2550885 Alfie not playing this season

Posted by darkmanx on 21 November 2014 - 09:48 PM

I kind of felt like he was never "ours".  Having guys like Yzerman, Lidstrom, etc stay for their entire careers, I feel disappointed that he had to leave Ottawa.  That it only turned out to be for one season makes it especially unfortunate. 




It especially sucks since last year with D and Z out half the season we relied on him soo much to help us make the playoffs. Without him last year we miss the playoffs.


Thank you Alfie!

I hope Wings win and salute the crowd after the game.

Let's also give some credit to Johan Franzen.  He seems to be putting up the most consistent numbers he's had since 2009.  He's not tearing the world apart, and is only on pace for something like 25 goals I think, but he's scoring every few games which is what we need him to do.  I'd gladly take 25 goals instead of 30-35 if it means he's scoring in 25 games instead of 10.

Hes on pace for 35 goals actually.

6 goals / 13 games = 46% x 76 games (he's missed 6 games) = 35

Just watched the highlights from the game...
1.  Chris Osgood is the absolute worst commentator.  He's obsessed with "big bodies" and called Byfuglien, Bu-fug-len.  Bring back Murph!
2.  Justin Abdelkader is having an awesome season.  He directly contributed to three goals last night by being strong, tough, and hard working. 
3.  Jacob Trouba is awesome. 

I keep thinking he'll come down to earth (abdelklaizer) but here we are 19 games in and he's still playing awesome. Who would have thought he'd have 14 points in 19 games this year? Not me.

#2550244 Why is Kindl not playing?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 20 November 2014 - 03:20 PM

I don't know if it's fair to say that Lashoff is "worse" than Kindl.  


I mean sure at some things but they have almost completely opposite skill sets.


If we could only combine them into one player frankenstein-style..... Kindlashoff....

#2550264 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Am I the only one that thinks Cleary has looked fine so far this season?  Better than Nestrasil even?

#2550118 Smith and Ericcsson?

Posted by kipwinger on 20 November 2014 - 10:01 AM

There's not, on my part anyway, but this just seems careless. Considering where the team was at that point in the game, (up by 4, 11 minutes left and 6 mins by the time his penalty was over) he shouldn't have been back out. It was pointless for him to come back out, and now his hand is worse off than it had to be. Whether it's Smith's call, Babs' call or the training staff, it could have been avoided. It's more about the situation than a minor injury that occurs constantly throughout the season. 


You're advocating holding a guy out of the remainder of the game, for a cut on his hand, because there's a possibility of infection? 


Can you even think of another time in the last 20 years that a player missed a game due to an infected cut on their hand?  That's how unlikely, and flukey, this injury is.  To suggest that someone ought to know better (regardless of the score) displays magnificent foresight, hindsight, or (more likely) both. 


Athletes want to play.  Coaches want them to play.  They're not going to sit out for something so unlikely.  Can you imagine how deep in Babs' doghouse Smith would be if he sat out the rest of the game because "maybe his hand could get an infection"?  Babs' wouldf****** lose it.
