The Wings game 7 was the last game as they will just get beat in Chicago. Not having last change really hurts! It also hurts that we have no scoring depth and our players can clear the zone for long periods of time and did I forget to mention the turnovers in our own zone when those pucks could easily be moved up the ice. Speaking of moving up the ice anyone really annoyed as to the fact the Wings skaters choose to go East/West with the puck as opposed to North/South especially in their own zone and all it's doing is creating more Hawks posessions! No hope tonight guys can't see it happening!


I like it better when you don't post.

How many times have we seen teams come from a 2 or 3 game deficit, with all the 'momentum', only to fall flat in game 7?  That will be tonight for Chicago.  Mark it.

#2414108 Fraser's take on Penalty Shot

Posted by rrasco on 28 May 2013 - 06:01 PM

I can't believe that we're still talking about this.  Refs on the ice thought it was the right call.  The CBC announcers thought it was the right call.  The NBC announcers thought it was the right call, and now Fraser thinks it's the right call.  The only people that don't think so are the Detroit fans.  We all need to get over it and perhaps ask ourselves why our team consistently gets outplayed in the third period.  Despite having frequent leads.  And despite at times overwhelming play in periods one and two. 


If you think that call was what lost us the game, ask yourself this: "Why did he have a breakaway in the third period at all?  Why haven't we had any?"


Whether we should have lost the game or not is irrelevant in the grand scheme of consistent officiating.

Look at the bright side, we are 2-0 in elimination games this year and 1-0 in game sevens.

I like the guy, but he clearly has no Finnish.

I thought it was that he wanted to play where his girlfriend is from & the fact that his wife is from there also contributed to his decision.


Does his wife know about his girlfriend?

#2409537 Helm Status Update

Posted by rrasco on 23 May 2013 - 11:15 AM

I like Flip, but I don't think he's what we need.  He makes progress, regresses, makes progress, regresses.  Outside of his defensive capabilities, I don't see him doing anything we can't replace.  He just doesn't have the ability to hang onto the puck like he needs to play his game.  You can see the moves he tries to pull, and 90% of the time it leads to a turnover.

#2409484 Helm Status Update

The Radulov incident did not affect Helm's back.


I didn't say it did, I said I hate Radulov.  Even though Helm was out for his MCL(?) and then came back, Rads took him out that game, and that's pretty much all he has played since minus the one game this year.  Thus, I'm still blaming Radulov.

I saw that picture during the game, but I'm ashamed to say I thought it was Kane's mugshot.



#2408967 Any tips on ways to tolerate the NBC media?

I am just sick of Edzo on his biased analysis.


Franzen gets boarded and the talk isn't about whether it was a penalty it is about whether the refs should have whistled puck dead for an injuried player, and we get a quoted rule about if attacking team has puck, to not blow whistle. Um, first of all, it was a penalty, that demands a whistle when offending team touches puck and isn't there examples where even if attacking team has puck, there are sometimes still whistles for injuries if the puck isn't in the offensive end (they had to take the puck all way up ice after injury).


Second the cross check explanation when he says it wasn't a cross check because Hawks stick rides up guys jersey, so it was just a push not a cross check? WTF?


You mean like when they stopped play after Stalberg dove into the boards head first?  That's what adds insult to injury for me.  What Edzo said is usually the case, but he certainly didn't have any problem with them stopping the play in the first for a Blackhawk that went down...on his own accord none the less.

#2408784 Red Wings don't belong in the same rink as the Hawks?

Posted by rrasco on 21 May 2013 - 09:12 AM

Only halfway done, guys. Dont get too cocky just yet.


Yeah, but it is nice to know we belong in the same rink as them.  The compete is there, which means we CAN win.

Really want this game BADLY.


Going up 2-1 would be a huge confidence factor for us and show the Hawks what's up.




Especially if we can do it with one more game in Det.  Get Chicago a  little nervous.  It's about time they faced some adversity this season.
