#2126740 3/5 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Coyotes 5 (SO)

Posted by sleepwalker on 06 March 2011 - 11:15 AM

I think the Wings play a lot better when they are getting f***ed over by the refs.

The first two periods, when the refs seemed to be actively trying to throw the game to the coyotes, the Wings battled through and went up 4-1. In the third where the calls were more or less even, the Wings completely choked and handed the game over to the coyotes themselves on a silver platter.

What a totally dissapointing ending. But that seems to be the Wings MO lately when it looks like the game should be theirs. Go up by a few, to where the game should be completely in hand, then completely give up and go to sleep while the other team embarrases you. Its a great strategy...

You better be right, or I'm gonna throw a brick through my TV, then send NBC the bill...


#2118536 Hudler Haters - Don't let facts get in the way...

Posted by sleepwalker on 18 February 2011 - 04:09 PM

Yeah, hes picked it up for sure and is looking a lot more confident, but IMO still not worth the $3 mil we're paying him.

Also, nobody "hated" Hudler. That term gets thrown around on the internet way too much. Disagree even slightly with someone or something, and you are automatically a "hater" these days.


#2116929 Isles vs Pens

Lemieux's message may be true, but he went about it in a pretty brain dead way. It's obvious he doesn't care about the state of NHL hockey (as he colleagues have already said regarding his absence from meetings) until it affects his team. It's not "we need to do this to improve the game," it's "my team got punked so down with this sort of thing."


EXACTLY!!!

Yes, the core of Marios message was true...

BUT, it was obviously just Mario whining and crying because things didn't go his way, like he has done his whole career, and now taught his little protege to do as well. Not him actually caring about the league or other players.

Mario doesn't really give a s*** at all. As was pointed out before, HIS TEAM is the leader in both penalty minutes AND fighting. He has never said anything about that.

HIS TEAM pays the dirtiest player in the NHL to go out game after game with one goal; injure other players. He doesn't say s*** about that or condemn that kind of play either.

He could be expressing ways to change the game for the positive, with his influential voice, in league meetings. But nope... Mario doesn't give a s***, and doesn't even attend those.

But now that his boys got their ass handed to them for once, NOW he is all up in arms and pretending to care about the league and other players...

Lets call it what it is. Hypocritical bulls***.

And the favoritism is horrifically blatant in not reprimanding him at the very least. No one else has ever gotten away with calling out the NHL in public.


Exactly.

This is just another example of the League pretty much outright saying that Pittburgh gets preferential treatment, and doesn't have to follow the same rules all the other teams have to. Pathetic.


#2116217 Lidstrom a +1 for the Season

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 February 2011 - 05:33 PM

I agree, great to see Nik at a plus.

But, c'mon... Lets not dis Stuart now.

If anything, everyone should now realize what a vital role Stuart played for our team... since he has been out, our defense has pretty much totallyf****** sucked...


#2115435 Best hotel for wings games?

Posted by sleepwalker on 12 February 2011 - 02:36 PM

We won't be renting a car (since we don't have a permit to carry a weapon in other states...i kid i kid.). =)


I know you were kidding, but I believe Michigan is one of the states that has a reciprocity agreement with Texas, so your Texas CCW permit would also be valid in MI.

Personally, I think Kenny doesn't hold anything against Snow for claiming Nabakov (I'm assuming that's what you were implying).


I agree. Kenny is a great businessman, and that was just business. You can't let your emotions interfere in business matters, or you won't get too far.


#2113951 Jimmy Howard watch thread

Posted by sleepwalker on 09 February 2011 - 10:06 PM

And the inconsistency continues.


Well, there is one thing he is pretty consistent at...

Letting in 4 goals a game.


#2113090 And he does it again!

Posted by sleepwalker on 08 February 2011 - 02:58 PM

I don't think he meant to trip him like that.


You are obviously not familiar with Matt Cooke and his style of "play". If you were, there would be no question that it was intentional and he did mean to stick his knee out like that in an attempt to injure Ovechkin. Thats what he does. He throws his knees out in attempts to injure people. This is not the first, or fifth, or tenth time he has done it. He literally does it ALL the time. Dirtiest player on the ice by far. He makes guys like Pronger look like boy scouts.

Anyone else like me and looking forward to the draft more than the actual game?


#2104655 Kulemin got crunched

Posted by sleepwalker on 24 January 2011 - 11:02 PM

Except Kulemin never threw a punch. Pushing =/= punching. And he never dropped the gloves, while Gleason (who I like) did drop his gloves.



Yeah he did. He threw 2 punches. Just becasue his gloves were on, doesn't mean they weren't punches.

Sidenote; And anyone who has been punched in the face with gloves before knows that s*** hurts a lot of times more than getting hit with a bare fist. (obviously, not in this case, lol)


#2104646 Kulemin got crunched

Posted by sleepwalker on 24 January 2011 - 10:55 PM

On other forums people are calling it a cheap-shot. To me, it was within the code. However, I expect Gleason to answer for himself when he sees Orr, Rosehill, or Brown next.



What, Leafs forums? lol

You start throwing punches like a big boy, you gotta be prepared to back that s*** up like a big boy too. Kulemin learned an important lesson today.


#2104344 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by sleepwalker on 24 January 2011 - 02:01 PM

By the end of this week, I can almost promise you that there will be some clearer direction in this whole thing. Until then, everyone should just take a chill pill, unwad their panties, and just wait.


Lol, I didn't see anyone freaking out or getting their panties in a knot. No need to get so overdramatic. ;)


#2104062 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by sleepwalker on 23 January 2011 - 08:57 PM

I like Wangs delusional response;

"I don't see why somebody who has this opportunity would not want to play and fulfill his contract. It's nuts, right. I don't understand any of it"

Uh...you really don't see why an aging goalie who wanted to make, what, who knows, could be one last run at the cup, wouldn't want to play for a team who has no chance of making the playoffs? You don't understand why he wouldn't want to leave his family and the warmth of sunny California to come to gloomy, cold ass New York to play for a team he thinks sucks and doesn't want to play for, won't make the finals, for a mere quarter mil, when dude has tens of millions already?

Really???

:blink:
