#2614971 TSN Play of the Year

Posted by rrasco on 17 June 2015 - 04:12 PM

GusGus won.  Nice to win something this season, eh?


At least the Wings are perennial POY contenders.

eddie was incredulous over the goalie interference call on versteeg


Okay Pierre...

#2608370 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by rrasco on 18 May 2015 - 02:29 PM

I think Babcock is a great coach, but after all this drama it's gonna be a little annoying if he ends up staying.


I don't think he's really made a big hoopla out of any of it.  It's the media more than anything.  He didn't want to talk about it all season and I think he's really only done the one interview with TSN, where he basically said "lets hurry up and make a decision now, no reason to drag this on".  We should know in two days time.

Last year there was a massive contingent of Slovakian voters who helped propel Tatar to the TSN Play of the year title.


In one match-up vs TJ Oshie, Tatar edged him out with a massive comeback where both guys had millions of votes.


I believe that is the reason our votes were timing out after a certain # cast. A lot of Blues fans were complaining we were cheating...(we were)


Technical advantage.  It's the subtle interference of the POY vote.

#2603425 Are you going to watch the game ?

Posted by rrasco on 29 April 2015 - 01:34 PM

Why the hell would you not?  Yeah it's frustrating but if they win?  Sheesh.  If they lose I can live with it, so long as they try.  None of this flat footed, standing around, chasing the lightning, bad passes and turnover s***.  Hit the ice, play strong, play hard and leave it all on the ice.  That's all we can ask for.

#2602722 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by rrasco on 28 April 2015 - 12:56 PM

I still don't think the principal point of contact was the head and North-South hits typically don't garner suspensions.  I'm guessing he just gets a fine and that's heavily weighted on the fact Kucherov is not injured.


Either way I got to update my website finally.

Does anybody have the 16 to 1 countdown Facebook cover photo file kicking around from previous years?  I used to have it but my computer crashed and when re-installing everything, the photo got lost.


This is the Imgur album that will be updated along the way, from Reddit.



#2580604 Preds don't postpone game, but get fan experience right

Posted by rrasco on 10 March 2015 - 04:57 PM


Oh I realize that. Just saying it's not the end of the world some places who aren't used to snow make it out to be. Seen cities fully shut down for only a few inches of snow. Some people do get scared driving in those conditions though, even up here. But if your confident enough, should'nt be a problem at all.


It's not just the people though.  For one, places that don't get snow often usually deal with more ice.  Ice is much more dangerous than snow.  Secondly, the cities are not equipped to deal with it.  No salt trucks, etc.  People also don't have winter tires in the South.  Northerners just like to think they are superior for some reason.  Not to mention I've been in Michigan in winter, nobody could drive in snow there either.

#2575067 2/26 GDT : Red Wings 3 at San Jose Sharks 2

Posted by rrasco on 26 February 2015 - 07:24 PM

I'm a fan of the GDT. Need a W tonight for this ridiculous road trip to be considered reasonably successful.


We've got 5 out of 8 points so far, that's pretty good.


How long have the Sharks been in the league? And their shark on the logo is STILL working that first stick. It's like he's not even trying.


They recently changed jerseys...



#2573820 2/21 GDT : Red Wings 7 at Dallas Stars 6 (OT)

Man...got back from Dallas last night.  What an epic game to be at.


It sure was fun taunting Stars fans after that double comeback.

#2565692 crazy hockey dad

Posted by rrasco on 23 January 2015 - 12:18 PM

I think people are overreacting (not just here, in the hockey world).  The guy barely hits the glass and it shatters.  And he does react, just not in complete shock.  It's not like he pulled out a battering ram.


He reminds me of the boss from floor 3 or 4 on Kung Fu where he just kicks or punches and you die.

#2565573 Mantha Still Hopes to Play in Detroit This Season

Posted by rrasco on 22 January 2015 - 02:38 PM

Unless there is an injury I don't see him doing anything more than serving as a black ace.  They might give him one game at some point if we are not in too tight of a race, just to see what he looks like on NHL ice, but barring those conditions I don't really expect it.

Alumni game!  Alumni game!  Alumni game!

#2563352 Could the Wings be better off trading Pav & Hank for draft picks?

Posted by rrasco on 15 January 2015 - 03:13 PM



I just read Damien Cox's piece on KK about blowing up the Leafs.  It made me wonder if all parties may be served best if Pav & Hank would be allowed to go to a place with a genuine shot at the cup (if that would suit them) and the wings can load up on some draft picks to help launch a team in a few years when our young guys today are seasoned and would be complimented by an influx in talent for a longer run?


For many reasons Holland has not been able to reshape the team enough through trades or free agency, For more than half a decade.  He has done a great job and has had some fortune in the draft and development area's. 


Is anybody else wondering about this?  I just don't see enough help in our future.  


Did we live in the same past 5 years?  Because we are finally starting to see the results of all that reshaping.

#2562133 McGratton on waivers

Posted by rrasco on 09 January 2015 - 06:35 PM


Well one of the two people you're talking about just got waived because he's EXACTLY an unskilled meathead goon, and the other didn't have a place on the only team in the league that 100% embraces unskilled meathead goons.  So what point are you trying to make?  That one of the two of them is a good hockey player?


They're just different levels of unskilled, meatheaded, goon.  Hence nobody (other than perennially horrible Florida) wants them. 


You mean the Florida the Wings can't seem to beat?
