The best part, besides the awesome chant, was Palmieri realizing his fate. You see that boy start backtracking as fast as he can, you can almost hear his internal voice screaming, "OH S*** OH S*** REVERSE REVERSE."

#2397328 WCQF Game 4 GDT : Ducks 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT) - (Series tied, 2-2)

I hope Bert AND Tootoo are both in tonight. This team needs a show of force! I mean, why would Sammy possibly be put back in the line-up tonight? His signing was a mistake, it's time to admit that and move on. 


Molasses could've made it's way down ice faster than Bertuzzi last game, no thanks. Bring Tootoo in and keep Sammy. He didn't play bad. He got the one penalty and started s*** which resulted in a 4on4 instead of the original powerplay for the Ducks. 

#2397284 Samuelsson on the top line tonight - god help us all !

Posted by evilzyme on 06 May 2013 - 11:42 AM

what about andersson???? i know hes a center but hes a body and plays a good 2 way game and then maybe mule can center the 3rd line???


I don't think we can afford to drop him to the Wing. Moving Mule to the third line would then cause a hole in the 2nd line. You need to replace Abby with another big body that can do what he did. Nyquist or any other finesse player isn't going to help on that line. We need a bigger body, especially against the Ducks. Abby was utilizing his body like no other during this series, and was getting under everyone's skin. Plus, Andersson is a solid bottom 6 player. That's where the bread is buttered. I think moving him into the top 6 would cause some problems with him. 


The part that depresses me is that we struggle so much to find someone for our top line when Justin freaking Abdelkader is suspended.


We have numerous people that can replace his spot, but not a lot that can replace his "spot" if you get what i'm saying. We have numerous bodies that can roll into that spot and play in the NHL, but we don't have many character players that are willing to finish every check, be a workhorse for pav and Z, put his body in the crease every chance he can get, and be a pest. The closest I can see to that would be Tootoo, and i'm not sure how we would feel about that. Bert needs games before he could be up-to-speed top 6 Bert. He looked horrible on the 4th line the other night. As much slack as Abby got around here, he's going to be damn missed these next 2 games.

Selanne was playing like a ****** goon all game. Him punching DeKeyser in the back of the head 3 times shown how frustrated he was. What is that though, a damn 43-44 year old trying to pick on a 23 year old? Buddy, if you wanna get froggy, go try that bulls*** against someone like Bert. Bert would've turned around and sent Selanne back into the womb.

Bert's getting a goal tonight instead of Tootoo as previously stated!

On the ticket right now, theyre talking about how Babs was hot during an interview with stoney this morning. After hearing it, he didnt sound too happy to me either. Hopefully hes bringing the pain to those guys in the locker room tonight. I hate to call this a must win, but it sort of is.


Where's the interview at? And about Teemu, they've been chirping after their first game win. Let them, as I said earlier, let it fuel the boys. If Bruce wants to chirp and Teemu wants to chirp, let em chirp. It takes 4 wins before you get rid of us though, so I would be very wise before opening your mouths after a single victory. It's usually not a good idea after a win to add chirps at the same time, especially in the playoffs. You already know the other team is going to try and redeem themselves for their previous loss, and then you chirp and fuel the fire some more. Come on swinging tonight boys!! Shut em up early and get that doubt planted. BIG HITS, BIG GAME, LETS CELLY ALL NIGHT BOYS.

The question really is why is this even a question?


You put it in a plastic bag and tape it to your leg.  Don't forget to boil it first.  Throw it at a time where you feel you've gotten your money's worth at the game because it's a given you'll be escorted out.


Textbook right there. Love it. Boil, bag it, tape it, throw it. Don't be a dummy though and throw it interrupting the play or at a horrible time. Make sure to throw it in an area that won't screw up the ice too much (boiling will avoid this also). Good luck and get the boys motivated!!!

Tootoo had the GWG yet Franzen gets all the love.




Did you happen to see Emdog chasing after him? One of the best clips from last night. Tootoo starts cellying hard, Emmerton is trying to catch up to him and the change of dynamics in Emdog's face when Tootoo goes flying past him... oh my. I was laughing for a bit.

Nyquist has been great. So much speed, a big bag of tricks. Really fun to watch.


Nyquist has surprised me. His previous call-ups were lackluster and I was getting nervous that he was simply one that was dominant at every level except the big show. Completely changed my opinion. I thought he was going to be a lot more stronger on the puck than last season; he's finally displaying that now. Him and Tatar would be a deadly force together. Both small, both incredibly strong on the puck for their size. Incredible speed to break the neutral zone and cause space within the offensive zone. Goose is more of the playmaker though, while Tatar could be his finishing touch. Tatar strives to pot em, and is regarded as the goal scorer of the two. They could easily be a dominant 1-2 punch, but in the same sense, Goose and Brunner could be.

Wow really impressed with Babcock and his line decisions right now!!! I was going to say, If Bert is in, he's going to pot one!




Goose is on the hunt for his biscuit!


Quincey will make the nay sayers angry with his beautiful goal tonight


Goals! Goals! Goals!!!!!!!!! LGW

#2389348 Bertuzzi not returning Wednesday vs Kings

Posted by evilzyme on 25 April 2013 - 10:32 AM

I love me some Bertuzzi. Here's some of the latest quotes:


“I’m ready to go (Thursday),'' Bertuzzi said. “I really wanted to play (Wednesday vs. Los Angeles), but I needed to skate hard with Tom (assistant coach Renney). I needed to do one-on-one drills with the defensemen. I needed to get some pushing and shoving down low. I needed to get cross-checked in the back. I needed to be able to spin off and needed to be able to stop and start and take off with the puck.


“Having my third visit to the doctor, I needed to make sure I tested it properly and got it taken care of. The last thing I wanted to do was for them to take a fresh guy out and have me play one period because something didn’t go right. The team is bigger than any individual.''


“I need to go out and keep it simple, and obviously play a different style of game than what I’m used to,'' Bertuzzi said. “Just try and get it in and try and grind out stuff down low, whether it’s on the fourth line or the third line. I just have to make sure I play well defensively and try to do what I do offensively down low.''


I play hard for these guys when I’m in there and I’ll stick up for them and I’ll do what I can for this group,'' Bertuzzi said. “It’s a great group, and these guys have been giving their all. I just want to get in there and tow the rope with them.''









I would expect either:


Bert plays in replacement of Mule because of his injury;

Bert plays in replacement of Brunner, giving him time to recharge;

Bert plays in replacement of Tootoo;

#2388701 Bertuzzi not returning Wednesday vs Kings

Posted by evilzyme on 24 April 2013 - 12:01 PM

What makes me feel more comfortable about Bert's return is things like this:


"I’ll be ready to play tomorrow. I needed another hard skate,'' Bertuzzi said. "Like I said before, a week ago, I can’t come in and not be ready to play a full 60 and help out, contribute, be big down low, finish my checks. I needed another hard skate and that’s what we just finished.''



He knows he can't afford to come into the lineup and not be effective. I want to see a down digging Bert flying down the ice with a purpose. Give us that veteran spark plug.
