#2642965 12/14 GDT : Buffalo Sabres at Red Wings, 7:30 EST

That could be the worst penalty shot ever


Eaves' fail a few seasons ago was worse, but at least it had the comedy factor.

Richards rips a sweet one timer off a nice feed from Pavel to draw first blood.

Keep the pressure, guys!


#2641475 What are the chances Larkin wins the Calder ?

Posted by TheXym on 06 December 2015 - 12:09 PM

dylark is consistently making his case. Once Kane cools off, I think Panarin will as well. Larkin seems to be much more self-generating in terms of his offensive production rather than riding anyone's coat tails. The age difference is also going to come into play as well, I think. His plus-minus stat is becoming more and more impressive. Even though I take plus-minus with a grain of salt, his number relative to the rest of his team is quite telling, IMHO. If the Wing's offense continues to click the way it has, is Vladdy's mark of +60 from 95-96 in reach?


#2641354 musicians that are red wing fans?

Posted by TheXym on 05 December 2015 - 05:03 PM

You can probably find musicians sporting the gear of several different sporting teams as a lot would wear gear from the local team in cities where they perform.


Cheap applause that way. My gigs are in baby Pens and Baby Sens territory but I still rep the Wings fairly often. :)


And my humblest thanks for the mention earlier in the thread.

IMHO, the Hanzal play on Pulkks was much dirtier, tripping him then driving him into the boards. Pulkks had no chance to brace for the hit. Tripping into the boards from that spot at speed can be dangerous enough even without a follow up boarding to make sure you hurt the guy. Nothing accidental on that at all. I didn't think Hanzal was that kind of a dirty player.

The Miller hit, while unfortunate, I have less of a problem with, as Drew was pretty low to the ground. Though, Dahlbeck could have eased up instead of just blowing Drew up, I think if the teams were switched most would be arguing clean hit a la the Havsplat.

Ozzie got hernia surgery.
And I hate, HATE the maple leafs. But I've got nothing bad to say bout them jerseys.


Their jerseys aren't bad, but I couldn't pass up the chance to take a dig at the leafs. :)

LOL woooow. That's hilarious, talk about being pessimistic, is that a movie? I'd love to watch it


It's from Major League.

It's certainly not fantasy.


Miller was caught in a landslide.... of awesome

Eichel sucks lol. Such an overhyped second pick.


Now now, it's not his fault that Larkin is better. :)

Nice dive by Kane there.

Nice to hear the Billy Joel, our boys need to rack that up every game. Now win it in regulation, please.

Ok so how many times do we have to listen to Daniels mention Eichel's name?


About as much as an NBC broadcast with Edzo mentioning subtle interference by the Wings?

Here's hoping it's in the context of "Larkin dekes around Eichel and roofs it for his first career NHL hat trick!"

Time to get it back, Let's Go Wings!

Have to think Pulkinnen will be back in on Tuesday.


I see where you are coming from, but I'd give Jurco another game or two. Make Pulkkinen hungrier when he comes back in.
