#2565037 1/20 GDT: Wild 4 @ Red Wings 5 (SO)

I just did this in paint on my laptop with no mouse, just the touchpad, but someone who has actual photoshop skills feel free to do a better version.  It seems appropriate.

Most of the early Sabres goals on Mrazek were due to the players in front of him sucking hard. If you're going to blame the goalie for everything, then apply it equally. If you're actually going to criticize accurately, then again, apply it equally. If you're going to call out the D or Forwards for blowing coverage leaving the goalie out to dry, apply it equally.

And now, for a poem inspired by EuroTwins:

Roses are red,
violets are blue.
I'm schizophrenic
And so am I.

Edit:
Also this from TSN.ca:
 
 
I wish Sabres will win soon and one of the Penguins greatest records stays intact.


The coach of the Pens for that streak? Everybody's favorite announcer, Ed Olczyk.

I think you are hitting the nail on the head, Kip. Plus, the timing of his injury had to put a cramp on the development curve. How many games did he miss? Plus, how long did it take him to get to full game conditioning one he was playing? He basically lost all he'd gained from the prospects camp, etc. and then some. I think he will be fine once he gets over the curve you mentioned. Plus, he is playing against bigger and more experienced players than he did in the Q.

Great graphic. I like the comic book motif, and it has none of the epic suckitude that was the essence of the failed Guardian Project from years ago. Well done! Here's hoping the offense keeps firing and Mrazek holds the fort.

Let's Go Wings! I'd like to see them light up Myers so badly that it kills the trade rumors.

Good win. Most civilized, indeed.

old school queen i like it haha


That's a semi-regular thing around here. One game various folks kept it going, sometimes with Wings-oriented edits (Scaramouche, Scaramouche, can you do the Datsyuk dangle?). :)

Nyquist completed a 2-on-1 with Sheahan
Quincey's shot from the point deflected off a Pred's player's keister, the ice, then past Hutton
Tatar made a nice low shot from the circle that Hutton never even saw


Thanks, brother!

Bout time for Neal to get all slashy and douchey. 


When isn't he? I suggest a preemptive Kronwalling that makes the Havsplat seem like a love tap.

is this real life?


Is this just fantasy?


#2563869 "Subtle Interference"

Posted by TheXym on 17 January 2015 - 08:13 AM

A lot of it stems, imho, from other announcers, (especially Olczyk) who are just jealous of the sustained success of the Wings for over two decades. For years, the Blackhawks were, for all purposes, irrelevant to post season discussions. They were able to draft Toews and Kane so high because they, as a team, sucked so hard for several seasons. Olczyk coached the Pens briefly, and had a record that only Mike Milbury could love (31-64-8-10). I wonder how many of those losses were due to "suttal intahfurrants"

Holy crap! Centcougar! I could not remember that guys name! I remember when he was here pretending to be a Wings fan talking about how we may or may not land the Olsen Twins that year! :lol: I also remember outing him when I stumbled across him on a Wild Forum using the same name! That was great times! Even though he was right about the Wild getting them, but it was awesome to out him on our forum! Dude, just be a Wild fan, we don't care! :lol:

Seriously. That was awesome when you outed him. The irony was he'd have been welcome as a Wild fan if he wanted to actually talk hockey. Some serious insecurity there.

I personally like when other team's fans come by to talk hockey and not be jerks. A certain Predators fan is pretty awesome about that, and I like the"outsider's" perspective. Trolls, on the other hand, can GTFO. ;)

I haven't see cprice around these parts for a LONG time! He was our resident Blues fan...maybe he got tired of getting beat all the time?


Maybe he and centcougar are hanging out somewhere. Though cprice wasn't nearly the troll centcougar was.
