#2558020 12/19 GDT : Islanders 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by number9 on 19 December 2014 - 10:49 PM

He's been off.
when he is on, he wins games almost single handedly.

Just because some people choose not to look solely at the bad things doesn't mean were defending him as a great player.


Rationality will never win. Franzen blowwwwwssss

Isles have excelled at the forecheck all season. We can't let them play that game.

Is he any good at the shootout? 

 

0 career saves during SOs. He's worse than Howard.

Really??  Maybe by your standards but we all have an opinion.

 

So you agree that at 7th in the league our PP is abysmal and that Mclaren, Orr, and Mcgrattan would each make great additions here? even though they can't even make the Leafs or Flames?

 

Calling you ridiculous in 5, 4, 3...

Well Pasha is probably one of the most gifted players server in terms of skill not even 40 can match that. Beating the Wings has become too simple and that's not a good thing regardless of the record the book is our there => play a hard nosed physical game, intimidate the team and you'll soon. Ever since Godstrom left the PP had become abysmal as evidence by the opponents taking more liberties with the Wings. I wonder if Dubinsky would have even looked at one of our players with Orr or Mclaren on the bench? Skill needs to be balanced and the Wings are lacking in that regard, so some nastiness and mean SOB isn't the worst thing. When s the last time someone challenged Hall or Hoping? Can't remember it because answering to Gazdic isn't a blessing experience. Even better how many cheap shots does Johnny hockey receive per game? None because the stare of Grats is on the bench ready to go at each time. God do I miss the bash bros and the tight bunch this team once was... Skilled, Hard nosed, hard working and entertaining as hell

 

Abysmal on the pp? We're 7th in the league in pp%

 

Yeah Orr and Mclaren are so good at protecting players that the Leafs demoted them to their farm team. In fact they only have 12 games between them in the AHL lol they can't even make that team.

 

Each time? Mcgrattan has only skated for the Flames 8 times this season. Even that no-depth team isn't finding him useful lol

 

Please Frank, this is getting ridiculous.

Posted by number9 on 18 December 2014 - 05:00 PM

Can't wait for the inevitable, self righteous, and long winded interview Mike Commodore gives on this latest development lol. 

 

This time it will be Ian White and Commodore somehow blaming Babcock for ruining their KHL careers

#2557428 slava voynov suspended after domestic violence arrest

Posted by number9 on 17 December 2014 - 12:12 PM

I hope he receives a fair and just ruling under due process of the law. Contrary to some people's view on this forum, Slava Voynov is not an animal, he's a human being just like you or me. Innocent until proven guilty by a court of law.

I just had a good laugh at all of the experts on here who contributed to the "Fire Ken Holland" thread, but are now reluctant to part with any of our "overripe" prospects because all of the sudden "they like our team" too.  And to everyone who understood that the current NHL landscape doesn't allow for any individual team to compete for the Stanley cup every year, please pat yourself on the back for defending him like I did.

 

As for a trade to "get our offense going" - We currently rank 6th in the NHL in GPG and 8th in PP% (all after scoring only 4 goals in 3 games in 4 nights). I think the question is "should we make a trade for a new goaltender who can make a save in a shootout?"... kidding.

 

August - THIS TEAM IS GOING NOWHERE! FIRE KEN HOLLAND! TRADE FOR *Insert name* OR TANK FOR MCDAVID!

 

December - No need to make any trades if we don't have to. Let's all just be patient and hold onto prospects and let them develop.

 

In a way I envy them. They truly live in the moment.

I know.  My point is, it's hard to have a physical sport with a fighting history, and expect people not to fight when there's an elbow or a cheap hit.  The Smith fight was necessary.  He doesn't want a guy running him again like that.  He was sticking up for himself.  If you take fighting out of the game completely, I'm afraid it'll encourage more cheap hits.  

 

I don't think any of us are arguing that. At least I'm not. I just don't understand yours and Frank Grimes man crush on Mcgrattan lol

So we're all low brow dips***s because we happen to like that part of the game and the players who have historically been linked with hockey pugilistics?  I like that part of hockey history as much as I like the skilled players who made up the game's history.  

 

You need to get off your high horse.  

 

That's the thing. Heavyweights are history. I love and miss that part of the game too, but the reality is, it just doesn't function like that anymore. Mcgrattan can fight, sure. But he'll never be a Probert, or even a Dmac. He's just not useful in any department besides fighting. He's butterbean with skates on.
