#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.

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...

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...

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.

#2225089 Ryan Miller's opinion on Milan Lucic

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 November 2011 - 01:05 PM

A one handed swipe to the leg equates to a two handed slash to the side of the head?


Nice complete lack of reading comprehension there. First, I clearly said "attempted", I never said he landed it, which he did attempt it, as you can see by the video he looks like he was going high with his stick, and got as high as he could while on his ass. I also never said two handed. Nice attempt at twisting what I said to try to make your counterpoint (or lack thereof) seem more compelling, though...

#2225074 Ryan Miller's opinion on Milan Lucic

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 November 2011 - 11:30 AM

Miller is very lucky he didn't connect with his stick there, it looked to me like he swung that goalie stick around like he was going for a Mcsorley....which is more of a piece s*** move if you ask imo don't skate to the hash marks, at Lucic of all people.

No s***. People talking smack about Lucic need to rewatch the video and see whats worse. Miller got butthurt he got knocked down way outside the crease, so he tried to take revenge by attempting a big slash at Lucics throat/face with his goal stick. Talk about gutless s***...

#2223528 Vladdy artwork exhibition in Royal Oak

Posted by sleepwalker on 07 November 2011 - 03:35 PM

Good stuff. Wish I wasn't poor...

I always loved Vladdy (still do) and think it would be sooo incredibly cool to have a piece of art made by him hanging up on the wall.

#2220261 Buyers Remorse

Posted by sleepwalker on 30 October 2011 - 02:15 PM

Speaking of ridiculous, buyer's remorse for Ian White? Nope. He was the best choice for the money at that moment.

Agreed. I think we got a pretty good deal on him. They even mentioned in the game the other night the the Sharks were pretty surprised by the contract amount White signed here, and one of the reasons they didn't try to re-sign him themselves was because they thought he was going to want a lot more than he signed here for.

#2218141 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by sleepwalker on 25 October 2011 - 09:53 AM

This is Prongers own fault for being too tall... If he was shorter, the stick wouldn't have hit him in the eye.
