#2466701 Your favourite Red Wings misfit of all time

Obligatory venomous mention of Jason F***ing Williams.

It's Cowen, after what he did to Pavs, he deserves every possible bad break. ;)

Haven't played the MP for 1 and 2 (picked up 1 for free, 2 was 50% off at the time), but I've been through the whole campaigns. If you want someone to coop on the campaigns, let me know.

Another close call on a wraparound. Come on guys, keep pressing. Let's Go Wings!

And the bad guys score on a broken play. Bear down and get it back, guys!


Edit: stupid ipod touch keypad.

So far so good with the PK. Should have been a TB penalty when Pavs was taken down there on the rush the other way.

I'm thinking either Bert said something to the ref or it had to be a player on the ice who sat.

Forearm shiver to Mule uncalled.

I don't blame him for complaining. Someone should pull a Chelios and send an errant slapper at one of them.

Yeah, Jurco's a little outclassed against the big boys.  Move Tatar up and put Jurco on the third.  See what he can do against lesser competition.

Good thought.

Too bad Bert couldn't cash in that wraparound.

 
I went back and took a look.  The quick whistle on the first one definitely should have been a goal, but the offside was on Anderson.  If he just moves the puck a few inches to get it in the zone instead of playing with it on the blue line, that whistle never happens.



Thanks for going back to check.

I remember something Fedorov said to the Anaheim coach(could've been Babs?) after he started playing for them, and he was complaining that the D never passed him the puck, and Babs told him the reason they didn't give him the puck was b/c they couldn't, they didn't have the skill like he was used to having in Detroit, getting that first pass on the tape to spring him through the neutral zone with speed
 
so yeah, I agree it is a big problem with the team now- not enough d-men that can make that first outlet pass out of the zone


I vaguely remember that. We have been spoiled for years on the blueline, and most of it wasn't fully appreciated while it was here, and only now are people realizing how good we actually had it on the back end.

....don't forget Chellie


While I looked at Cheli as more of a defensive D late in his career, I agree he was also darn good at moving the puck.

That offside was iffy, it looked OK to me. I guess the replay will clear it up. Tatar shooting the puck was ok, imho, the whistle was after he released it.

Glendenning will get 15 games for the Malkin injury....


In all seriousness, I hope that isn't another Pat Peake injury. Malkin hit the boards skate first very similarly to that play.

Nice dirty hit by Engelland there. Hopefully Abs is all right.

It would be nice to rack it up on the major. I'm surprised they actually called it.

Just finished cooking dinner with my wife, settling in for the game. I will be cracking open the birthday present she got me a few days early: a bottle of Macallan 15 year Fine Oak. Hopefully the spirits will be good luck for the Wings.

I'm hoping things click for the Wings in a big way and they demolish the Pens.
