#2260533 Alright, time to call Nyquist up

Posted by sleepwalker on 22 February 2012 - 07:08 AM

Lol, what a dumb thread. As already pointed out (and should have been obvious to any Wings fan) last night was Clearys first game back after being out.

By your logic, we should get rid of Jimmy too since he lost last night.

*rolls eyes*


#2259864 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by sleepwalker on 21 February 2012 - 04:47 PM

I mean he basically sent away our first round draft pick which i was hoping was going to be used in a package along with a player or two to land someone bigger at the deadline.



This is what annoys me the most about this trade. I don't mind giving up a first round pick, but for Quincey? C'mon...


#2258808 2/19 GDT : Sharks 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by sleepwalker on 19 February 2012 - 02:17 PM

I don't really know what to say about this game.

Play-wise, its a good game from both teams. But as far as officiating goes, its an example of the reason so many long time NHL fans think that the NHL these days is a complete joke.

Its also an example of why I hate watching nationally broadcast NHL games, becasue you are guaranteed to see a bunch of questionable calls (and even more questionable non-calls) that seem to be for only one purpose; to keep the game as close and "exciting" as possible. Its like the refs in the nationally broadcast games are under strict orders from the NHL to keep the games within a goal and make sure they make calls (and ignore other calls) to guarantee the game stays as close as possible.

I agree that Portland is a much better option ideally.


I dunno. Do hippies and neo-nazi skinheads like hockey?

The hardest fought 1000 games by a player likely in NHL history.

The Demolition Man is a true warrior.


#2253578 Revenge

Posted by sleepwalker on 08 February 2012 - 11:56 AM

Revenge?

Marian Hossa, for choking us out of 2 cups in a row.




No s***.

While I will be the first to admit that shady reffing played a significant part in the 09 loss, one cannot forget the fact that Hossa played an equal part in the loss after falling into an apparant coma on us in the playoffs following his fantastic regular season that year.


#2251362 Alexander Radulov Incident

Posted by sleepwalker on 02 February 2012 - 04:26 PM

I don't see anything at all about this to indicate he did it on purpose.





Maybe you should actually watch the video. He looked back directly at his coach, TWICE, then smacked him right in the face.



I honestly can't imagine how anyonne with eyes would think that wasn't intentional.



Edit: after rewatching, he not only takes two looks back, he then turns his head directly at the coach, AS he is swinging the stick at his face.


#2247845 Bruins Fan Shoves Lightning Mascot

Hopefully, whoever that retard playing the "mascot" was got their ass fired for that bulls*** stunt.


You spray someone you don't know (or even someone you do know) in the eye with some s***, you should fully expect to get hit for it. This isn't some 1965 hippy commune, its the real world.

No thanks.


Kid seems like a bit of a prima donna to me. Thats not what the Wings need on their team.


#2241016 Rupp 1st Goal, Then Salute at WC

Posted by sleepwalker on 03 January 2012 - 01:56 PM

IMO, any kind of "dance" or strange celebration outside of a fist pump or raising your arms up then hugging you teammates should be penalized



If thats your stance, then why should fist pumping not be penalized as well? It is the EXACT same thing as the salute, only difference being that the fist is closed instead of an open palm...


#2234876 wait til you see this goal celebration...

Posted by sleepwalker on 11 December 2011 - 01:26 PM

I really don't care much either way, but...

I find it interesting that most people here are saying this gesture is perfectly fine, but most people here were saying how out of line and uncalled for the Asham KO "goodnight" gesture was after his fight earlier this year. I guess I'll never fully get the LGW crowd, lol.


#2233966 Kronwall and Stuart may be hitting a lot less now

Posted by sleepwalker on 07 December 2011 - 04:53 PM

I've seen the video (not jolly's crappy screencap, but an actual video with more than one frame) showing how he jumps into the hit.




I have too, and when you go frame by frame, and pause at the moment of impact, his skates are on the ice. If that is jumping into a hit, then what Kronwall and Stuart do almost every game is also jumping into a hit. I think thats the point of this thread...

Posted by sleepwalker on 07 December 2011 - 04:45 PM

The Shanaban video shows Fistric left his feet before contact.




No it doesn't. I've looked at the different videos multiple times and when you pause at the moment of impact, both of Fistrics feet are clearly on the ice. He left his feet on the follow through, just like Kronwall does on pretty much all of his big highlight real hits.


#2228009 11/20 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Ducks 2

California cost cutting...this is their way to save the state budget.



Hah, no s***!

California has spent themselves so far into debt and bankruptcy that they can't even afford to keep the power on anymore.


#2226375 Datsyuk knows he has been awful.

What surprises me more is the following Babcock's quote in that article



Why players don't do that? Are they not listening to Babcock at all? All we saw last game are numerious passes during PP. Well, we had 3 PPs without a shoot on goal. Looks like the only player who shoots is Ian White and he is injured right now. Something is seriously wrong.


Thats a goodf****** question.

Babs isn't just saying that now, he has been saying it. Its like since Babs has been coach for a few years now, that the players are just used to him or something and ignore everything he tells them and let it go in one ear and out the other.

Babs "Shoot the puck on this PP, boys, none of this million pass game s***"

"OK, coach"


PP starts:

pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass, pass

puck gets stripped and cleared

pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass pass

puck gets stripped and cleared

pass pass pass pass

pass gets intercepted and cleared

pass pass......






Well, you get the point.
