#2639624 Bigger nets ?

Posted by sleepwalker on Today, 04:16 AM

As was already pointed out, the rink size will not be changed.  It would cost tens, if not hundreds of millions of dollars to convert all the NHL arena surfaces, not to mention the millions in revenue that would be lost due both the time it would take and the seats that would be lost.  Not feasible.

I agree with F Michael.


While the charges sound scary, it could simply be the case of him bringing his gun with him to hunt.


Simply having the gun to begin with would be "possession in an unauthorized place" getting it there is "unauthorized importing" and not having enough trigger and case locks, or not having certain accessories stored separately would be "careless storage".


Could be as simple as he just brought a gun (or two) up to hunt with not fully knowing all the laws and regs, and got the book thrown at him to make an example. 

#2636769 Nemesis vs. Archenemy: Detroit Red Wings Edition

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 November 2015 - 11:39 AM

Red Wings biggest arch enemies?


The NHL refs. 





Honorable mention to the "department of player safety", who wouldn't suspend anyone who took a dirty head shot at a Wing, unless the shot was with a bullet.  (and even then, they'd probably have some excuse about how the Wings player put himself into the path of the bullet, and thus, no discipline)

#2631274 10/16 GDT : Carolina Hurricanes at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

The Wings look completely confused out there... like nobody really knows what the f*** is going on.


Really disjointed.





Plus it looks like it is going to be "one of those games" with the refs too. 


What was that, like a half dozen blatant trips committed by Carolina, with no call on any of them?  Ironic that the first call against the Wings is a trip with all the Carolina trips the refs conveniently ignored....

#2629859 10/10 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Hurricanes 3

Oh, man... 


It seriously hurts my heart to see the Wings get outshot and outplayed (not to mention the shady/questionable ref calls) and then make a perfectly executed and beautiful hockey play to take the lead...


And then due to a random flukey bounce, the canes tie it up, and use the momentum gained off of that to take the lead.



...maybe I'm taking this hockey s*** too seriously.  ( or maybe I need to call an emt, I may be having actual heart attacks, lol)

#2629744 10/10 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Hurricanes 3

Unfortunately too, the refs are predictably horrible. 


I mean come on, Abby was right, if anything that should have been both guys going, Abby for the trip and the Canes player for embellishment.


And calling Larking for a high stick because he lightly grazed the other players helmet, (so light the other player didn't even notice or try to get the call)  while Pulks takes a blatant stick to the face earlier that gets no call.


Just as we've come to expect from the NHL refs though, sadly...

#2627164 9/24 Exhibition GDT : at Red Wings 6, Pittsburgh Penguins 1

Posted by sleepwalker on 24 September 2015 - 07:17 PM

Oh, man...  That goal by Pulks was a BEAUT!  Puck slowly came to him and the Pens goalie saw it the whole way and fully squared up to him and Pulks STILL sniped that s*** past him on the far side.  Lovely!



Great to see Larks and Lil' Bert score at home in front of their parents and friends too!


Nice game so far, hope they keep it up!

#2624899 Cleary re-signs... 1 year deal

Posted by sleepwalker on 08 September 2015 - 09:43 AM

What a great way to end your career. 


Going from having everyone like you and your hard work, to having most fans hating your guts for fleecing the Wings year after year due to your greed/ego, while some of the young up and comers on the team are getting paid less than your long since washed up ass.


Congrats Cleary!  Can't wait until you are gone from this team for good and I never have to hear your name again...and I actually used to like you.

#2601572 Tampa Bay Head Coach Jon Cooper Accuses Red Wings Of Cheating

Posted by sleepwalker on 27 April 2015 - 03:48 PM

What a whiney little punk baby.  His team is cheating just as much and throwing dirty elbows and s*** that in the regular season would be reviewed for possible suspensions.


Dude is just trying to get favor from the refs in game 6.


What a little ******.

#2600578 ECQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 4, at Lightning 0 (DET leads series, 3-2)

Posted by sleepwalker on 25 April 2015 - 05:59 PM

After watching this series I have ZERO respect for Bishop...




-dude dives and flops around every time someone even brushes into him to try to draw a penalty


-he has faked an injury almost every game to try to draw a penalty, then when none comes, he jumps right back up perfectly fine


-after almost every play in his end he incessantly whines and cries to the refs to try to get a penalty


-every time he or his team needs a breather, he pretends he has a helmet or pad problem (or other equipment issue)



This fake ass whiner is so bad, he even makes Crosby look like he never complains about anything...

#2596333 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Tampa Bay Lightning 5

Posted by sleepwalker on 18 April 2015 - 04:42 PM

Since I know everyone is going to be in gloom and doom negative mode, I'll play devils advocate and post a few bright notes...


-Wings scored late to kill Bishops shutout


-Wings didn't take a boneheaded too many men penalty, like they have made a habit of the past few weeks


-Wings are going back home to Detroit tied 1-1, instead of down 2

#2595457 Kings' Jarret Stoll arrested for cocaine possession

Posted by sleepwalker on 18 April 2015 - 09:30 AM



The "drug war" is absurd anyway.  Unless he was on blow while playing, who really cares what he does in his spare time.  Nobody is complaining about the millions of people in this country that are high on caffeine at any given moment.  Same thing as cocaine, basically, aside from legality...

#2592045 Brendan Smith

Posted by sleepwalker on 10 April 2015 - 12:14 PM

Smith has been a total disappointment to me.  I had high hopes for him, like a lot of us did.  He has not only not progressed at all, but he has absolutely no hockey smarts at all, and makes some of the dumbest plays ever.


Like another poster said, it is pretty much guaranteed that in every game he plays, at some point he will have the puck behind his own net and instead of making the most basic hockey play and safely moving it out, he throws it right to one of the opponents.  It is so frustrating.



On a side note, this thread is a rarity.  How many other times do we all basically agree about a player?

#2591668 4/9/15 GDT Red Wings 3 @ Canadiens 4 *Warning post #888 & 906*

Posted by sleepwalker on 09 April 2015 - 09:18 PM

What in the mother f*** was Smith thinking???


Especially considering the importance of this game and where the Wings were at the time (up one, and short handed) that is one of if not THE dumbest penalties I have ever seen.

#2588763 Erik cole - what the hell's going on with him ?

Posted by sleepwalker on 03 April 2015 - 03:00 PM

While we're on the topic...


What's up with that bum Datsyuk?  He's missed 7 of the last 9 games.  What a horrible signing that was.  Trade him for a bag of pucks.
