Posted by rrasco on 03 October 2013 - 11:43 AM

Reminds me of that soccer incident a few days ago :

How are these remotely related?




#2441319 10/2 GDT : Sabres 1 at Red Wings 2

Posted by rrasco on 03 October 2013 - 11:34 AM

Haven't read through the gdt, but was anyone else impressed with Ericsson? I've never seen him so confident handling the puck!

 

Ericsson was a beast.  He was jumping up in the play at the right time, showed lots of confidence, and used that towering frame of his.  He's got some snarl.  I hope he keeps it.

What a game.  Lots of fun and I was effin pumped to watch it.  Glad the crowd came to play too.

 

I don't know much about Alfie, but man can that 40 year old skate and what a F****** ROCKET he has.  They just kept teeing him up and he was letting them fly.  This is going to be a fun year.

 

PS: Pasha is the man, but you already knew that.

Comcast is offering free Center Ice preview until oct 19

 

Everyone does that, at least I always assumed they did, but I know DTV does for sure.  Typically the first 3 weeks or so are always free.

 

I'm dying for this game to start.........at which time I will be bowling.  Damn you Wednesday.  Thank you DVR.




#2440219 So....did Cleary just take Tatar's spot?

Posted by rrasco on 01 October 2013 - 03:38 PM

But instead of waiting to see how any of this pans out, if Tatar and Nyquist don't have sophmore slumps, lets overreact before a single game has ever been played.

 

The time for waiting is over.  We've been waiting since last year for at least this specific lineup change to be made.  Still waiting....




#2440184 So....did Cleary just take Tatar's spot?

Posted by rrasco on 01 October 2013 - 01:09 PM

Seriously......if you had to choose between Cleary and Tatar.....would you really choose Cleary?  Really?  Really?  Cleary is not the worst forward in the league but he shouldn't be playing over Tatar.  And if you want to get technical, I'd prefer Cleary over Sammy but it was Cleary's signing THIS year that put Tatar on the bench tomorrow....no matter how you cut it.  According to Babs that's just life.  According to me that's just bulls***.




#2440122 10/1 NHL Out of Town GDT - Opening Night

Posted by rrasco on 01 October 2013 - 09:08 AM

I'll probably switch between WSH/CHI and TOR/MON.

 

Guys.... HOCKEY IS BACK! :D

 

About damn time.




#2440010 Emmerton on Waivers

Posted by rrasco on 30 September 2013 - 04:23 PM

This team makes no damn sense.  Evidently Tick Tock Babble Co. is not interested in icing the best team possible.

 

"Tie goes to the veteran, not the kid."  Bull-ish.




#2439360 Tim Thomas Signs With Florida Panthers

Posted by rrasco on 27 September 2013 - 06:27 PM

I resent that.




#2438764 Petr Mrazek or Jonas Gustvsson

Posted by rrasco on 24 September 2013 - 05:57 PM

Same with me.  I'd pick Mrazek in a heart beat, but I'd rather he get minutes on the ice instead of the bench.




#2438721 So about ESPN and their hockey "knowledge"....

Posted by rrasco on 24 September 2013 - 01:41 PM

Funny, NHL.com think the Wings are setup for a deep run.

 

Not to mention ESPN had them at #2 on the power rankings.  How are you #2 on PR and finish 23....behind the f****** Islanders?




#2438567 Report: NHL to have 5 outdoor games in 2014-15.

Posted by rrasco on 23 September 2013 - 02:33 PM

Shoot-outs after every tied game. A half dozen outdoor games a year. Up next: fan jerseys laced with crack.

Let's systematically drain the appeal of EVERYTHING.

 

Ticketing fans for tucking in their jersey.




#2438551 Report: NHL to have 5 outdoor games in 2014-15.

Posted by rrasco on 23 September 2013 - 12:53 PM

So about 6 outdoor games a year now.  What a novel idea.  Next up, first ever permanent outdoor rink.




#2438000 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by rrasco on 20 September 2013 - 05:55 PM

He's getting paid a 3rd line salary and IMO he's a below average 2nd liner, so I can't complain about that. If we didn't have roster issues this would be a great signing.

 

This is pretty much how I feel minus the great part.  It would be a non-issue for me at that price if we didn't have a roster limit issue.  Gus doesn't deserve to be in GR.
