#2593070 No Scoring and No Fighting

The whole enforcer protecting the team era was in response to the lawlessness on the ice. The rules didn't protect players, so the players did. Now the league has rules to curb this lawlessness, which makes the role of the enforcer semi-obsolete.

 

The enforcer era is not coming back. It's going to move farther and father from that despite whatever protests you (and including myself) have. The sooner one accepts this, the sooner one can move past it.

 

Hockey isn't becoming soccer. Hockey is becoming hockey. Fighting is part of hockey's history, but at the end of the day it's a side-show within the sport. Trust me, that pains me to admit.

 

If you want to watch good fights, do what I do and follow the UFC. Hockey and fighting are going to split. Maybe not tomorrow, maybe not in 10 years from now, but we all know it's going to happen eventually. Enjoy it while we have it. The game is evolving, and it's going to leave us 80's and 90's fans in the dust if we don't evolve with it.




#2593009 Babcock: Petr Mrazek is starting Game 1

Posted by number9 on 13 April 2015 - 03:58 PM

IMO TB is the sleeping giant in the playoffs this year. If we're going to get out of this series alive I think Mrazek is the right choice right now.

We know what we get with Howard. He'll be good but he's not gonna steal the series. There's a chance Mrazek could that if he's on one of his hot streaks I think. Good luck petey

This is Smith's 2nd full season.  Kindl is 2 years older and has been with the Wings around 4 years.  It is funny how Kindl has scored every time he's played since being benched though. 


I context of where drafted and currently I would agree.  In contract terms I feel Ericsson has been the worst on the team. Either way Marchenko should be active in the line up for one of them. 

 

Kindl has played 52 more NHL games than Smith. Not exactly 2 seasons, not even one.

 

Smith and Kindl were both drafted at similar draft positions. Both are of similar build. Both are regarded to have offensive upside. Both make dumb mistakes. Both are prone to defensive lapses. Both have similar point totals (Kindl's ppg has been much better than Smith's the last 2 years). Yet both are not treated the same (by us).

 

I heralded Smith (but never Kindl) when he was a prospect as our next great d-man, as many of us did. It's time to reassess. He's 26 now and going down the exact same path as Kindl. At this point, If you don't like Kindl, you shouldn't like Smith. I would be fine to see them both go.

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

DK - Zidlicky

Quincey - Marchenko
