You didn't link to the video, just the 'quick picks' channel.

#2352982 Franzen spear on Perron

Posted by rrasco on 08 February 2013 - 02:56 PM

I think the difference stems from in a fight you're squaring up on a level playing field to defend yourself and hurt your opponent.  You're also risking your own well being to do so.  Spearing someone in the gut doesn't risk directly risk your well being.  So it can be perceived as a cowardly move. 


What about boarding a guy who is clearly defenseless?  Franzen didn't have a chance to defend himself, why should Perron?

#2352225 Mrazek To Start Tonight

Posted by rrasco on 07 February 2013 - 11:43 AM

Yikes.  I know Babs was mulling over who to start tonight, but talk about trial by fire.  I guess there is no time like now.  Eager to see how the kid steps up in his biggest game yet.

#2352115 Howard = Average

I blame Dats for not scoring on his four chances.  He should single-handedly be able to win us the cup.  Dammit Pavs!

#2351933 Petr Mrazek's mask - Think "Petr Griffin"...

Family Guy is one of the most annoying shows in the history of TV IMO, but I can appreciate the humor behind this choice of artwork, and it is really well done, hope he hangs on to it when he gets called up for good.


LOL.  The only people I know that don't like Family Guy, don't like it because they don't understand the satire.

#2350428 Emmerton

Posted by rrasco on 02 February 2013 - 02:32 PM

I must be the only one who liked what I saw from Chris Conner when he was here.  He had more jump, had better speed, through more hits, and was more effective on the ice than Emmerton, Mursak, and any of the other guys rotated up for a few games.  The guy was flying.  As much as I like Clears, Conner was more effective.


If Abby isn't going to score once in a while on Helm's wing, then I think a fourth line of Conner-Abby-Toots could be really effective.


Other than him getting injured, what am I missing?


I always liked Conner too.  He was sent down by Pheonix this year as well.  If he was bigger, he would be amazing.

Let's just say Z got me 15 pts tonight in my fantasy league....yeah

#2349174 TooToo - the lovable little Tasmanian Devil

I've never seen it called before, so I didn't even think of that, still pretty cowardly


I remember someone got called for fighting abby last year (I think) with a visor.  Of course, I've seen Abby fight with one too.  I've seen it called once or twice other than that, so it is pretty rare.  Kind of like how when they throw someone out for a faceoff violation, if the same team commits another one, they are supposed to call a delay of game, but they never do...they just drop the puck.

We REALLY need some whistles at Red Wings games... just sayin. Listen, you all know it's going to happen eventually, might as well get used to the idea. :D


For the love of god, please no.........

You mean tough hits like this?  Gotta give RJ credit for coming back that game and scoring a goal though.


#2346280 Nail Yakupov Goal Celebration.

Posted by rrasco on 25 January 2013 - 07:12 PM

And you would be as useless as Tatar.


Thanks for the clarification.  You're point is crystal.  You deflect from the topic because you have no leg to stand on.  We're talking about goal celebrations, not how useful someone would be.

#2346237 Nail Yakupov Goal Celebration.

Posted by rrasco on 25 January 2013 - 04:20 PM

No. If you can walk the walk, then talk the talk if you wish. Tatar is a minor leaguer.


You're not making any sense.  You said Tatar acted like a moron his first goal and then justified that by saying it's okay for Yakupov to do that because he is going to score more goals......so what you are saying is only 'good' players are allowed to celebrate?


You can bet your ass if I am 'not going to score that much', when I did score, I'd be pretty stoked.

#2346210 1/25 GDT : Wild 3 at Red Wings 5

Posted by rrasco on 25 January 2013 - 03:02 PM

Ya that Suter, I would LOVE to see that again! :) I went nuts last year when Dats did that :D

Too bad itprobably won't be Z feeding Pasha again though, I wouldn't mind Blade Brunner pulling something like that though


I'm pretty sure I went ape s*** and did laps around my couch...and I didn't even spill my beer.

Suter?  This Suter?  I'd love for this to happen again, but don't make me wait until the end of the game.


#2344644 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

Posted by rrasco on 22 January 2013 - 03:11 PM

He didn't refuse to sign with Detroit, his rights were traded to Columbus and he signed with them before free agency started.  Might want to be accurate the next time.


Accurate?  Yeah, you're spot on!  Let's just say he was never really interested, because well, he knew someone would overpay and that someone wasn't Kenny H.


Speaking of money, Canton's James Wisniewski signed a six-year deal with Columbus valued at $5.5 million a season. The Red Wings were interested, but not at that price or that term.


"For me, knowing Detroit's history they don't really pay the market value for a defenseman or any player,'' Wisniewski said on NHL Live. "So I didn't think that was going to be a fit for myself.

See post #70 where I tell you exactly what I would have done.  Or you could dig back through old threads where I repeatedly argued for signing Matt Carle AND Bryan Allen for less than we eventually DID OFFER for Suter.  Or even older threads were I repeatedly argued for signing James Wisniewski.  Holy s***, there's three top four defensemen I wanted who aren't named Ryan Suter and who are all currently playing top minutes for their respective teams. 


Repeatedly argued to sign a James Wisniewski who refused to sign with Detroit?  Good luck with that one.
