#2614609 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by Nightfall on 15 June 2015 - 09:56 PM

Yup, if you have a team that is utter crap for 10 years, you too can build through the draft like the Hawks and win 3 cups.  Dave Talon and Stan Bowman built this team smart.

 

Unless your management is as worthless as Edmonton.


No matter who wins at the end of these things, I still get chills when the final horn sounds.

And I like watching the losing team cry too.
Not gonna lie.

 

So you liked watching the Wings cry in 2009?




#2610372 At what point does the GM deserve credit/blame?

Posted by DickieDunn on 26 May 2015 - 09:32 AM

Bowman was GM for a bit, but Holland handled most of the day to day stuff. Minimizing his contributions is just bs. When Yzerman wanted to he a GM I don't blame Holland at all for not taking a different role. He's the GM, he wanted to continue to fill that role.


#2604899 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Whelp, I've given myself about 12 hours to digest this and my preliminary thoughts are...

 

1)  If you don't blow leads in the third period, you'd be in Montreal already.

2)  The kids were better than they were a year ago in the playoffs, so glad to see some improvement (6 goals and 3 assists from Nyquist, Tatar, Sheahan).

3)  Datsyuk and Zetterberg look ooooooooooold. 

4)  Anybody seen Zetterberg, Abby, and Helm?  Me neither.

That I will agree with lol... The team was in Florida, close to his old stomping ground, wonder if he watched from some seedy humid strip joint.

None of the other pictures I googled were appropriate.

SCREW THIS TEAM SCREW THE STUPID PLAYOFF STREAK! SEEEYA LATER BABCOCK BLOW THIS s*** UP EVERY YEAR SINCE 08 WE HAVE DONE THE SAME s***BLOW IT UP WE WONT WIN A CUP EVER AGAIN WITH THIS CORE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

This is the start of the forum turning into a toilet on the verge of flushing.....

 

What a great series.  Wish it turned out different, but that is the way the cookie crumbles. 

 

Look at the bright side, the Griffins won tonight and they are going to get some horses back for their playoff run.

Well a series defined by sporadic scoring and piss poor officiating is decided by a terrible non-call in favour of tampa again.

 

A valiant effort by the wings, who ultimately lost this in the last minutes of game 4 following the non calls in that game.

 

Really really really missed Cole and Franzen's size as the series went on. Kindl as expected was excellent today, and Marchenko was solid too, but the Kronwall bulls*** made us overplay different combinations.

 

The NHL wanted us out and got its wish, and now its up to the summer, to see if reinforcements can be found. I still can't believe that Weiss wouldn't have offered more than Jurco, but there we go.




#2596491 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by cnot19 on 18 April 2015 - 11:45 PM

It's funny to me that Ericsson gets killed every mistake he makes but dekeyser who makes plenty of mistakes gets a free pass


#2592548 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Posted by Nevermind on 11 April 2015 - 09:57 PM

Before the season: Success

At the trade deadline: Disappointing


#2577519 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 March 2015 - 01:11 PM

just want to give a huge kudo to Kenny for not caving in a trading our top prospects! He made the team better with both Cole and Zidlicky! Lost nobody of significance doing so either! Thank you Kenny! Lets Go Wings! Bring on the NHL!




#2576768 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 01 March 2015 - 07:50 PM

Still remember him as a rookie on the 2002 Hurricanes in the Finals. I'm a fan of this trade. 




#2559401 12/27 GDT: Red Wings 3 @ Senators 2 (OT)

Posted by joesuffP on 27 December 2014 - 10:03 PM

That was a very fast game. Our blueline can't handle speed. Physically and mentally their game falls apart against a fast forecheck




#2549652 HoF Power Rankings: 1st pick to start team today

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 November 2014 - 09:15 AM

Gretzky had longevity over Lemieux and Orr, who both had health issues.  That's why he'd be a better pick to start your franchise with.  




#2550596 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Posted by number9 on 20 November 2014 - 10:12 PM

I was reading on hfboards, some of them are throwing a fit about this.
Its kind of amusing.

 

Which is hilarious considering no one thought Nestrasil would ever be a Red Wing during the 2013-14 season. All of the sudden he plays 13 games and suddenly we've lost a great prospect. gimme a break.

2 goals on 10 shots. If Howard was in net people would be trying to crucify him.
