#2405825 WCSF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 4, (CHI leads series 1-0)

Posted by rrasco on 16 May 2013 - 11:41 AM

Am I the only one who thinks we didn't play that bad as a team?  For the most part anyways.  Our D wasn't so great and we didn't throw enough rubber at Crawford, but I thought we were good in finishing our checks, being hungry on the puck, and we had good goaltending.  Watching that game, I wasn't pissed off because Chicago dominated us; I wouldn't have made that conclusion.  They played an overall better game than we did, but I've seen much worse on-ice products from the Wings this year than that.  I liked our compete level.

Well I'm just about to go upstairs and give the beard its post round 1 trim.

 

This enables the Wings to win 14-3, led by Datsyuk's goal and 13 assists.  Franzen, ever streaky, with all 13 goals.  Leftwinger's head explodes trying to comprehend Franzen v Hossa.

 

What?!  No trimming allowed!




#2400932 Abby in for game 6... Who draws out?

Posted by rrasco on 10 May 2013 - 11:01 AM

Despite Sammy scoring, I think he sits. It would be a mistake to not have Abby on the top line. Sammy just a further liability when not paired with Dats and Hank.

 

I'm really not sure actually, will be anxious to see what happens.

 

In what universe would we have ever imagined this to be an acceptable statement?  Things are getting crazy!

I had a feeling that would happen.




#2396865 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

Posted by rrasco on 05 May 2013 - 03:18 PM

I just want to know why the ref standing right next to the hit didn't raise his arm.  He was staring directly at it from 2 feet away and didn't make a call.  None of this 'he waited to talk to the other officials' stuff, because if there is a penalty, they put their arm up at the time of the infraction and they can discuss it afterwards to determine severity.  They called it charging and threw him out because Lydman didn't get up.

you gotta be kidding me..

I'm not sure we are watching the same games.  Kindl has really stepped his s*** up this year when it mattered most.

A win is a win and they needed that one.  This ones over, get ready for Sat and take the series lead.  They say you're never in trouble until you lose one at home.  Well, the Ducks just lost one at home.




#2393342 Corey Perry Knee/Kick to Howard

Posted by rrasco on 01 May 2013 - 04:35 PM

They were debating on the TSN Panel if it should have even been a penalty.  I agree that it should have, but that's enough.  Lots of people say borderline penalty, so definitely no fine/suspension

 

It was a borderline penalty, but it was still a dangerous play.




#2393340 Corey Perry Knee/Kick to Howard

Posted by rrasco on 01 May 2013 - 04:33 PM

If he had of just kept skating, he would have slammed right into him, he jumped to try and avoid contact.

 

I don't agree.  If he kept skating, he would have made contact with Howard's stick, which is much better than kicking him in the head.  I'm not calling for a suspension, or even a fine, I just think it was a douchebag move and was avoidable.

Seeing the video again, we should probably just be happy that they didn't call Howie for embellishment.

 

I thought the contact was pretty incidental last night.  I have changed my mind since I have seen how far he dragged his leg out.  Why even lift your leg?  Just keep skating.  F*** Perry!




#2393274 Corey Perry Knee/Kick to Howard

Posted by rrasco on 01 May 2013 - 11:38 AM

No matter how you put it, Perry kicked Howard in the face.  Do I think he did it on purpose?  No, but he didn't try to avoid it either.  That could have been A LOT worse.  Watch his skate drag across his shoulder and then catch him in the mask. Howard could have been severely hurt on that play.

 

It's the same situation when they call the big goalie interference penalties/suspensions, he may not have done it on purpose and had some defense in his way, but the onus is on the player to avoid the contact.  The goalie is helpless.

 

I don't think a suspension is coming or warranted.

I usually end up breaking a remote and/or window at some point.

 

I destroyed my entire backyard in 2009.




#2392124 2013 Playoff Beards!

Posted by rrasco on 30 April 2013 - 01:40 PM



DO IT! You were willing to go to jail to throw an octopus, I think you can suffer through a damn beard lol.

 

LOL!  Have you ever grown a beard?  I'd almost prefer jail.  Okay okay, I'll do it.  Here's to hoping I reach this growth again.  The best part of this picture is it was taken at the Joe!
