Usually takes me a game or two into the series to gain inspiration for a new playoff opponent, but here goes:




Also, an old standby of mine:



#2505708 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by Dabura on 04 April 2014 - 09:21 AM

Sean McIndoe:


This series would have a lot going for it. It would feature two popular teams that boast plenty of big-name talent. It would be the first playoff matchup for Pittsburgh and Detroit since their back-to-back meetings in the Stanley Cup finals in 2008 and 2009. (Each team won once.) And it would be a divisional crossover series, which would cause maximum confusion among the majority of fans who still have no idea how this new system works.


So could the Red Wings pull off the upset? I think they could. The Penguins are top-heavy with elite talent, but their lack of depth and spotty recent postseason history makes it seem like they’re vulnerable to being knocked off in the early going. A second-round exit seems more likely, but the Wings would have a shot here.


Besides, who wouldn’t want to watch a series that prominently featured the undisputed best player in the entire league? (And when Gustav Nyquist wasn’t on the ice, we could still watch Sidney Crosby.)

I've had this happen to a couple beers that were resting on the ledge, but this kid gets decked by the glass during a check.

This is hilarious! Did he respond to any of these?


Probably not, he just cross-checked his computer. 

#2499617 3/23 GDT: Red Wings vs Wild

Posted by 55fan on 23 March 2014 - 05:31 PM

Let's hope that yesterday's win doesn't make them over-confident.  The Wild have been playing well.  I was talking to a guy at the game yesterday and he said that he never under-estimates the Wings, but that everyone else thought that since we were so beat up that it would be a cake walk for the Wild to beat us.


If anyone wants to see pics I took at yesterday's game, they're here:  http://s261.photobuc...tart=all&page=1


I think the Wild will come out harder today since they'll have something to prove after yesterday.  If the Wings give it a full 60, they'll win it.

#2498372 3/20 GDT - Penguins 4 at Red Wings 5 (OT)

Posted by rick zombo on 20 March 2014 - 09:26 PM

I have to ask just for fun....what did this list look like end of second period? :)


1. If Legwand doesn’t get suspended, all is forgiven. (especially since he made Malkin look like the tool that he is)

2. Nyquist is amazing

3. Tatar is clutch

4. Emmerton was amazing on the kill

5. Quincey’s my hero, for now

6. Babcock is doing some good work

7. Jimmy made some big saves

8. Our D still kind of blows hard

9. DeKeyser was awesome

10. I think Smith might have been not bad

#2496468 Here Is A Hint For Wings To Catch Playoff [ new ]

i like this guy.

The only positive thing youve ever uttered.


#2496462 Here Is A Hint For Wings To Catch Playoff [ new ]

Posted by Z and D for the C on 18 March 2014 - 12:31 PM

agree or not ...
wings has too many foward star player now ...
only 2 part they are not sucess is
1 - goalie
2 - defense
if they add 2 more defense expert can score 
if they add new goalie can save 
i believe they can get to final semi playoff ...

So we need better forwards, better defensemane and a better goalie? It's a bold plan, you'll make a lot of enemies, but I think it just might work.

#2496353 Franzen calls out team

Posted by kipwinger on 18 March 2014 - 08:51 AM

if one thing has been made clear with these injuries, it's that tatar/nyquist are not players in the mold of datsyuk/zetterberg - they aren't the guys that are going to carry your team.  they're secondary players.


They're rookies!  Datsyuk and Zetterberg weren't players in the mold of Datsyuk/Zetterberg when they were rookies either. 


Zetterberg was runner up in rookie of the year voting his first year with 22 goals and 22 assists in 79 games, Datsyuk had a less impressive 11 goals and 24 assists in 70 games his rookie year.  Both Tatar AND Nyquist are on pace to beat those numbers in MANY fewer games.  Furthermore, neither Datsyuk nor Zetterberg were asked to do as much in their respective rookie campaigns.  They were both on teams LOADED with talent.


Maybe they will turn out to be that good, and likely they won't.  But to act as if their rookie years have been anything other than spectacular is absurd.
