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.

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.

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?

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.

#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!
