#2579048 My Ideal Playoff Situation

Posted by Euro_Twins on Yesterday, 07:31 PM

My ideal playoff situation is we go in 100% healthy and on fire. Let the other cards fall where they will.


My ideal playoff situation is we hoist Lord Stanley, bottle the tears of all the butt hurt fans we beat along the way and then all of lgw gets together at the captains house with yzerman and lidstrom and everyone else and we have a huge butt pat party!

#2579025 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on Yesterday, 06:13 PM

 
I think it caught on because of "the sky is falling" attitude that some people have here.  It was real easy at the beginning of the season to say #tankit2014 and now that is not the case.  Holland didn't panic and didn't make moves because he knew what he had when the team was healthy.  Now that patience is being shown on the ice.  The Wings are still in range to take 1st overall in the east.  When the playoff come around, this team could very well fizzle in the first round, but they have the resilience to make it to the finals.

You're partially right.
But most of us thought the doom and gloomers were hilarious and decided to show them how funny it is.

Well I guess there's no such thing as bad publicity. 


Apparently you haven't been following the Leafs


#2579080 Preds don't postpone game, but get fan experience right

Posted by PredsFanTheBayouState on Yesterday, 09:08 PM

For someone that grew up in NY, PA, and OH, I now live in Southeastern Tennessee, the mix of freezing rain and icy snow mixture that froze over last night, it was one of the most treacherous driving experiences I had today trying to get to work. Backing out of my driveway, going about 3 MPH, I barely tapped the brakes and slid back an additional 12 feet and hit a telephone pole. It was like trying to drive a light car with bald tires on a hockey rink, it was pure slick ice and I had hardly any control at all. I had no traction and I drive a SUV with 4 wheel drive. I drove in feet of snow up north for many years, but the mess that was there on the roads today was downright nasty and among the worst conditions I have had to deal with. 

 

It resulted in no one showing up for work today, including myself, and the first time the facility closed for a day in the last 12 years. 

i don't drive,so that's good  new for all of the other drivers out there,i'm embarrassed to tell my driver ed story,but lets just say  it involved a telephone pole,then the arriving of the  police, a ambulance,a fire truck,and the head of the school board.

#2578936 3/4 GDT : Rangers 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

This was definitely a stolen game by Howard. He was flat out phenomenal in multiple points of this game where the skaters were back on their heels and he had nothing but pressure coming his way. 

 

Zidlicky was very noticeable, contributed offensively, seemed comfortable with his passing game, especially to Zett on the PP, and had a firm presence in his first game out there.

 

I think after a bit of line tinkering and some practices, Cole will find a comfort zone and contribute the way management expects him to when they dealt for him. 

 

Overall, fun game to watch, fast paced at times, intense, and had a playoff atmosphere. Glad I was off tonight and got to watch it.

I thought the rangers fans where ok but seeing the board wow they are whinny ******* I mean I get being upset for your tea but don't open your mouth until you look at the two historys their team has won the cup once in 1994 and we have won it in 1997-98 2002-08 don't get cocky thinking we aren't that good 23 years and counting in the playoffs and always a threat they wish they could have that team they do nothing but choke


The whiny Rangers fans are clearly feeding off their assclown coach.

I don't think he called it unfairly.  I mean Ken and Mickey mention an "almost" too many men on the ice nearly every game.  When Olczyk does it, he's making up calls!  He hates the Wings!!!  It's just gotten so out of hand. The league, Bettman, ESPN, the officials, don't hate the Wings.  Really. 

 

Ok, that's fair and I agree with you. Except Edzo is a noted idiot, he was coach of the Penguins before, is the color guy for the Hawks all season long, and is a noted Wing hater. For the record I hate when Ken and Mick complain about calls, not referees, broadcasters. Call the game the way you see, not the way you want. That's also my biggest beef with Edzo.

Check this out from the HF rangers board.
Ha.
Redwings are like that skinny little "chinese kid who only used Guile in street fighter 2. You remember the cheese combo? Ya that's what I'm talking about. Lack skill so they cheese."

First time I've ever seen someone say the wings lacked skill.

They are idiots. After the trade deadline everyone started creaming over them saying they were the best team ever to skate on the ice because of the overrated yandle and that they were going to win the cup this season. When a team like the wings that wasn't even suppose to make the playoffs beats them its because of home cooking and cheating. I wish I could punch every rag fan right in the nose that says that.

Of course there are lots of fans who are used to hearing their homer announcers and will perceive a neutrally called game as slighting their team.  BUT, that being said, the criticism of Edzo is spot on in my humble opinion.

My Lord, so many butt-hurt Rangers fans whining about interference and that Detroit needed help from the officials to win.

Agreed, three W's in a row.... Wait a minute, Toronto can't put three W's together in a row, how do they even have a website? (Sorry, couldn't resist).

 

Hahaha so cheesy, but I laughed. (leafs suck)
