#2246325 1/17 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Dallas Stars 2 (SO)

Posted by rrasco on 17 January 2012 - 11:29 AM

Wish I could be there in Dallas. Why they put the only two games vs. Wings in January, and both on a week night, I couldn't tell ya. <_< Too much of a drive for me, on a work night -- but I will be watching!

That's what vacation is for! I wish they were spaced out a bit more, but that just means I get to see our boys twice in 2 weeks. About to head out on my 300 mile drive, but it's soooooooo worth it. Let's go Red Wings!

It absolutely drives me mad that CHI and STL are ahead of us because of OTL points.

I'm not doing any GDT details, I just wanted us to have a place to banter about today's game. It felt like something was missing. HT001, feel free to make your own GDT and then the mods can delete/merge this one.

Let's Go Wings! Set that club record on the way to #12!

What a win. Another ROW win for us, and two in a row against little brother.

Somebody needs to make a sound bite of Olczyk saying 'It was only a matter of time with the Red Wings dominating." We may very well never hear that again from that man.

#2245336 The ONE thing I can't stand about Wings games on FSD.....

Posted by rrasco on 13 January 2012 - 06:02 PM

This is a thread of people basically listing things they dislike about the FSD broadcast. I find Hogan's reports to be useless and very poorly prepared. Sorry for wasting your precious time.

You can have your neg back too for complaining about "complainers".

Exactly. An entire thread at LGW to ***** about yet something else. Surprise! I come here for breaking Wings news and some of the community. Yet all I ever read when I open a thread is ***** ***** *****.

What really does bother me is that they NEVER show the Anthems before the games.

I'd really be surprised if anyone even knows who the f*** Karen Newman is if they've only been watching games for a couple years and haven't been to one at the Joe.

They do actually show them sometimes, otherwise I'd have no clue who Karen Newman is. I've only been to one game at the Joe.

I'd rather watch an Arby's commercial 275 times straight than a report from Shannon Hogan in the stands.

Yeah, she's awful

Why do people always find something to complain about? Do you people hate life that much?

EDIT: Yes, I negged you both. Figured I'd make that public since nobody stops complaining about 'mystery negs'.

Welcome to the world of television. Sponsors pay for spots, they play them. Local commercials everywhere are horrible. If you have Center Ice you know what I mean. At any rate, it sure beats listening to Olczyk and Pierre on NBC any day. I tend to enjoy Keating's awkwardly quirky remarks.

If this happens there is no way I won't be there in person.

#2244370 Pavel Datsyuk is lazy and he sucks.

Posted by rrasco on 11 January 2012 - 04:31 PM

Howard is always invisible on the scoresheet. Hell, it seems like we never even see the guy outside of the defensive zone. What gives???

He's lazy, he sucks, and he's worse than Franzen because he doesn't even float.

#2243834 1/10 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Islanders 5

I love Jimmy, but he's capable of having a bad game too. He's had two in a row now. Regardless of what you think, goalies need rest. You simply can't play one guy 82 games and expect him to have any gas left for a playoff run. What will you think if Conks puts up a solid performance? He played great against the Avs at the beginning of the season and put up another solid performance on Sunday, we have a really small sample size for him this year. He proved he can stop the puck on Sunday. He let in those two early ones, but once he got some playing time, he improved. Can't get better if you don't play.

Fortunately the Wings are not an AHL team.

Well because a guy plays 1 decent game after multiple awful ones means he is going to be good tonight? Interesting logic. Not fielding the best team they can always annoys me regardless of this so called rest goalies need.

It's a good thing you're not making those decisions then.

We should get after NBC. That sigh is s*** you hear on local homertastic radio broadcasts, not on a supposedly unbiased national broadcast. Disgusting.

I was just watching the replays again to see Montador get rocked, but I couldn't help but listen to see Olczyk's response and first comment after the goal. Doc is going off about Datsyuk, Edzo sighs in angst, Pierrer praises the Wings for their work down low and says Pav puts it in, and then Edzo says "Off of Nick Leddy. We talked about it before..." and then goes on to ***** and moan. It is disgusting how that's all he has to say and goes straight to the excuses. I'm sure that whole time he was quiet after his sigh he was having them cue up the replay so he could let the excuses rain down. Screw this, we should all write NBC.

#2243501 Marchand Suspended 5 games

Posted by rrasco on 09 January 2012 - 11:11 AM

How is Salo NOT responsible? He shouldn't have been that upright when coming in on a check to Marchand in the first place, UNLESS he was aiming to hit high, the guy has damn near 6 inches on Marchand...

That's stupid. I don't really have a comment on Marchand, but to blame this on Salo is ignorant.

I like how Russia is protecting their goalie now. Even if Makarov has no real threat, they're still clearing the crease. I wish our boys would do that for Jimmy.

I'll be at this one. Hitting the road in just a few. Go Wings!
