USHL is nowhere near the WHL.




Agreed.  Central Scouting's 2013 final rankings has 8 WHL players projected for the first round, compared to the USHL's 2 (and none in the top 20).  Small sample size, I know but still worth noting.

#2358118 2/19 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Predators 4 (OT)

Posted by Bar Down on 19 February 2013 - 11:12 PM

Nothing gives me an aneurysm quicker than hearing "keep doing what we're doing" as the answer to "how do we change our fortunes in the win-loss column".


What more could you ask for out of that game aside from a win?  The Wings dominated the Preds for the majority of the game.  60% on face-offs, out-hitting and out-shooting a team usually means a win.  A couple of bounces going the Wings' way and this game doesn't even go to OT.


I know the Wings are on a losing streak but that was a really entertaining game to watch.

Don't forget that Heatley, Hossa, and Kovalchuk all played for Atlanta.

Pittsburgh put up 58 pts in Crosby's rookie year. The same year, Washington put up 70 (good for 2nd last in the conference) with Ovi.

#2243381 Marchand Suspended 5 games

Posted by Bar Down on 09 January 2012 - 12:17 AM

man when did the league become so soft? I don't want to see anyone get hurt, don't get me wrong, but this is hockey. Wasn't a hit to the head, wasn't a blatant cheap shot in my mind. Protecting himself. Was Salo going for a huge hit? maybe not. But was Marchand suppose to just take the hit? To me, thats a good hockey play, kept his head up and protected himself. Call me a Marchand sloppy all you want, but don't see much wrong with the hit. a few years ago this wouldn't even be on the radar or up for discussion.

So you're suggesting that cutting a guy's legs out right before he hits you is a good hockey play? It's as cheap as it gets. Plays like this are the reason there are so many injuries in today's NHL

Three games isn't enough. That hit is pretty much as dirty as it gets.

I will be streaming again tonight at http://freeredwings.tv, and hopefully there are less issues. I'm not sure what was going on last night but it was frustrating.

Thanks as always. Your stream is usually awesome which is much appreciated!

#2215324 WTF is Babs thinking?!?!

Hudler on the point on the PP reminds me of when Jason Williams was back there.

Scares the s*** out of me because if he makes a mistake he doesn't have the speed to recover.

Never hurts to have another streamer!

I plan on streaming this game at http://freeredwings.tv. Fox Sports Detroit feed, Veemi stream, 800-1000 kbit/s

As a guy that lives out of the Wings local broadcast area, it's very much appreciated that guys like you take the time to provide the stream.

Someone gave the GDT a -1? What the hell?

#2209950 The Official NHL Suspension Thread

Posted by Bar Down on 27 September 2011 - 10:32 AM

Im in no way saying that some suspensions shouldn't occur. But do you really thin Wiz should get 8 games for that? suspended? yes prolly, 8 games? no

And instead of suspending everyone, they could just bring the game back to pre lockout, those barely noticeable holds can prevent injuries. I just want hockey 2 be like it was in the 90's.

Absolutely Wisniewski deserved 8 games for that. He targeted Clutterbuck's head with his elbow after the game had ended. Clutterbuck didn't even have the puck, either.

On top of that Wisniewski has been suspended four times since 2008. He's a meat head.

Posted by Bar Down on 24 June 2011 - 10:09 PM

Yippief****** doo....

This is supposed to be the best off season the Wings have had in a long LONG time and Holland has done nothing so far... Oooo, I am gonna make some trades on draft day, Oooo we are gonna make some deals... Strike one Holland....Strike One.... tomorrow is another swing at bat....July 1st is your last swing.... Do not strike out.... yet again.

Very disappointed thus far with Holland...

Man you're a broken record. Chill out. There's a reason Kenny is regarded as one of the best GMs in the league.

The flyers have to move somebody... Matt Carle to detroit?

The Wings would do well to go after Carle or Coburn. Both would be great additions to the team.

#2180575 Changes in the offseason

Posted by Bar Down on 28 May 2011 - 02:19 AM

I know some of you have been looking at the Flyers as possible trading partners and I agree. They are in SERIOUS cap trouble because they have a bunch of long term deals tying up a lot of payroll. A guy like Brayden Coburn would be a good fit for the Wings at a decent cap hit. He's big (6'5", 220 lbs), young (26) and led the Flyers in hits in the playoffs. He's also capable of 30+ points a season and can play some serious minutes. Since the Flyers are in a salary-shedding mode, he might be available for less than you'd think. Since they can't afford to take one any more salary, a pick and a prospect (such as Emmerton) might be enough to coerce the Flyers into trading him. Just throwing it out there.

Kevin Weekes is as mediocre doing color as he was as a goaltender. I almost switched over to NBC to listen to Edzo. That's saying a lot.

It's a no brainer.... WINGS GAME.
