Haha.  Oh man, good luck.  Don't let them get to you and talk some smack for me!




#2510208 4th Annual Playoff Money On The Board!

Posted by rrasco on 17 April 2014 - 12:52 PM

I just may dabble this year.... Ok, here ya go:

 

 

$30 if 2008-2009 Playoff Franzen returns!  (Between the two playoff years he scored at a rate of 1.05 ppg)

 

So if he gets 1.05 ppg or higher, then I am in and I will also pledge that I leave Franzen alone for the rest of his career! (unless he is traded then he is fair game.)

 

OMG I'm holding you to this!




#2509861 Gus & Tatar almost traded to Calgary per McKenzie

Posted by rrasco on 15 April 2014 - 05:30 PM

I've been saying forever that Nyquist was off the table for me.  If we let some people around here make trades he'd have been gone for less than JB.  Hindsight is 20/20 eh?




#2509837 ECQF - Series A - Bruins versus Red Wings

Posted by rrasco on 15 April 2014 - 03:37 PM

Yeah, I got a pretty big chuckle out of that as well.  Still love Backes though.

 

I can only like Backes every 4 years.




#2509812 ECQF - Series A - Bruins versus Red Wings

I like it.  To be the best you have to beat the best.  If this team can get past the big bad Bruins, they just might become unstoppable.

As always, I'm sticking to $10 per Kronwalling.

 

I will also add $1 per goal for our youngsters, including:

 

-Nyquist

-Tatar

-Jurco

-Sheahan

-Glendending (MULTIPLIER x2)

-Andersson

-Dekeyser

 

And just in case these guys get in some games:

 

-Pulkkinen

-Ouellet

-Sproul

Wish we actually had Z...  :/  I would have used Dats but Z is more like a bear.

#2509010 Around The League - Eastern Conference Playoff Race

Posted by rrasco on 12 April 2014 - 07:21 PM

Since Philly won today, if Columbus wins, Detroit is locked into the #2 WC.

 

If Columbus loses in regulation, Detroit will require at least 1 point tomorrow for the #1 WC spot.

 

If Columbus loses in OT or SO, Detroit will require 2 points tomorrow for the #1 WC spot.




#2508487 Jack Adams award discussion and speculation

Posted by rrasco on 10 April 2014 - 02:53 PM

I don't know why Babcock deserves it, if it wasn't for the injuries I doubt we'd be in the playoffs.  We'd have underachieving Cleary, Weiss, Sammy and Bert running the second and 3rd lines.  Nyqvist, Tatar, Sheahan, Jurco would be buried deep in the abyss somewhere, and these guys have been the spark to get us to the playoffs.

 

I think Holland and Babs were idiots for dumping Nyqvist and Tatar after everything they put up last year.

 

So no, the award shouldn't be based on luck.

 

I think Roy is 100% deserving of this, he did an incredible bang up job this year.

 

What has Roy done Babcock has not?  They both coached teams.  One loaded with talent, the other less-talented and experienced.  This isn't about choosing who is on the roster, but coaching those players to success.  Not to take away from Roy, but he didn't quite have the challenge Babs did.

 

It would also be a disservice to Babs to not win the Jack Adams in a year he surpassed the man the award was named for in wins.




#2508441 % chance of making the playoffs

I don't know, but for some reason, even after all the beer I drank last night, I feel guuuud.




#2508438 4/9 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Pens 4 (SO). Wings clinch playoff spot!

I'm not even going to pick my poison.  We're in and that's all that matters.  Hope the boys are ready to make some noise.




#2507216 What has Bryz done again ?

Posted by rrasco on 08 April 2014 - 03:17 PM

He was probably my favorite player to watch on HBO's 24/7 a few years back lol. Quite peculiar, he is. Anyone remember some of his classic quotes¿

 

If you type Ilya Bryzgalov into Google a suggested search actually appends 'quotes' onto the keywords.
