#2372013 3/20 GDT : Wild 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by rrasco on 22 March 2013 - 02:54 PM

Really?!? Suter is a -2, not very good for a defensive defenseman at a 7.5 million cap hit. Parise didn't even show up in that game, and has 23 points in 29 games, which normally would be pretty good, but for 7.5mil a year, I laugh at you. I am glad we missed out on the olsen twins, Suter is garbage without Weber, and Parise is good but they are both wayyy over payed and were way over hyped. Have fun always having a mediocre team that cannot win a cup :)


You should just ignore him.  I ran across a few of his posts on another board and the persona he is trying to hide here comes out in true color.  He was totally right about Suter/Parise (because nobody saw those two come out of left field) and he's right, we missed the playoffs (because the playoff race is over, right?).  He's just trolling these boards and it's been allowed for some reason.  The best way to get rid of him is to just ignore him.  No matter how much I want to lash out, it will only feed the troll.  I still find it funny during the offseason when he was all: I'm a Wings' fan but Minny has the best prospects evar!

Dammit Harold.  Couldn't I have at least got my post in before your warning?  I'll zip it.


I recorded the game and watched it starting around midnight.  That no-goal call was absolutely wrong.  I didn't understand why they wouldn't review it, but it's because the call on the ice was a high-stick with contact made by another player, not a high-stick goal.  Had the puck gone in without Toots touching it, they would have reviewed it for height/contact.  The fact that Toots helped the puck across the line meant that the play was whistled down prior to the goal, not because of the goal.  In the current set of rules, that is a non-reviewable goal and theoretically, by the book, they got it right.  However, I think anytime the puck ends up in the back of the net, it should be reviewed.  What's more important: having stupid rules or getting it right?  Even Edzo got that part right, which I was kind of surprised to hear him continue on about how that should have been reviewed.


Was that a Kronwalling or no?  I kind of want to update my site and that counter that's approaching 1 year.

#2370739 Brunner downgraded to the third line!?

Posted by rrasco on 18 March 2013 - 01:29 PM



...and I was told that I was the one always bringing him up! :lol:  I do it a lot, I admit, but its nice to see that I am certainly not the only one to turn threads into Franzine threads!


Here is the final word on my opinion, Brunner on the 3rd line is better than Cleary or Franzine in the top 6...dump Franzine now.


That's because you normally do.  I can't go a day without reading at a minimum of 3 of yours posts with 'Franzine' in them.  We get it.

#2368328 We are the Detroit Red Wings and we are making the playoffs

Posted by rrasco on 13 March 2013 - 10:24 AM

Great, I guess you like first round exits.Well the Wings have a special going on this right now...comes with a side of molasses that Dan Cleary puts in his skates before every game.


Would you rather they missed the playoffs all together?  I don't see how that is beneficial to anyone.  You can't win the tournament if you're not in it.  In that case, maybe the Wings should just move to the A.  That way we can at least play for the Cup.  Oh, yeah, not that cup, the other one.

So....do we score today?

#2366724 Ovechkin Hit?

Posted by rrasco on 08 March 2013 - 05:17 PM

I've had multiple people make comments about the Ovechkin hit from this week, I think?  Something about him getting hit and slamming into the net?  I couldn't find any reference to it but had several people ask me what I thought.  Anyone know what I am talking about?

Yep, new mask.  Not sure when he changed it.

I guess maybe it did change.  I don't think this is the Lokomotiv mural.

You know the playoff race is tight when you win a game and move from 10th to 4th.

#2363181 Faceoff violation Penalty

Posted by rrasco on 01 March 2013 - 10:36 AM

It's a new rule which is why it seems like they don't call it.  They have.  I've seen it called 4-5x at least during games I've watched.


Having said that, I'm not sure Pavs touched it with his hand, and if he did, his hand was still on the stick so it's not like he closed his hand on the puck.  They showed a replay of it, from the camera that was facing Pavs on ice level.  Puck was behind his gloves/stick, but I didn't see if he touched it or where it went.


What I don't get is, they allow hand passes in the defensive zone, but you can't do it off the faceoff?  If you're in the d zone, it's a hand pass, nothing more.  If you're not in your zone...then it's a hand pass and they call it down.  Why assess a penalty?  I don't remember which zone they were in, but that's irrelevant, it shouldn't be a penalty.

I didn't see the game, but I had the same thought.  The Wings lost because they didn't score.  Even if the officiating was poor, LA only scored 2 goals which means we had the chance tp at least get to overtime.  1 goal almost never wins a game.


You really had to watch this game to appreciate the officiating.  I was laughing hysterically by the end of the game.

Why don't we just cut to the chase and start the game with cleary and abs on the bench...or you could just send them straight to the box and get our 5-3 out of the way.

Strange that White is scratched...team was playing good last couple. Glad that Smith is in, but Quincey-Garbage should be the one scratched. I do agree on keeping Lashoff in though.  I would even prefer Kindl over Quincey crappy ass.  I think my gramma can play better than him... You guys will see him screw everything up tonight on D and Frazickle-Cell will drag down the O....oh Babs, why change things when you are flying high?


Huskins has been better than both Kindl and Q....again, time to question Babs.


Is it a requirement for you to throw a jab at Franzen in every, single, one of your posts?  We all understand how you feel about Franzen, but it's getting tiresome reading the same line regurgitated by you every post.  He's lazy but scores goals and has the best cap hit on our team.  Give it a rest for a while will ya?

First time? Where have you been under the internet rock?


Reddit sucks.  Someone needs to tell them their website is stuck in the 90s.
