Hope it was worth it, Stewart.

#2245889 1/14 GDT : Blackhawks 2 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by chrisdetroit on 14 January 2012 - 06:02 PM

Well, I gotta say, that was a great game with each team taking turns dominating. Fact is, we are two very closely matched teams, and if we meet in the playoffs it will be a helluva series (and closer than 2009 when the Hawks weren't quite ready).

Datsyuk was pure awesome all over the ice.

James Tiberius Howard is the man.

Even Franzen showed up in OT.

Not as close as the silly standings indicate with all of those loser points. The Hawks have given up 130 goals against. That is more than every team in the West but Columbus and Anaheim.

The Wings have a ROW of 26 compared to Chicago's 22 and we have a game in hand. AND Chicago has played 4 less road games.

Today, they were given a gift goal by Howard and had one go in off of Lidstrom's skate. They really aren't that good of a team.

I think that the Hawks will drop in the standings with that 9 game road trip that they have coming up.

I apparently haven't been paying attention, but what happened to Crosby again? Is he back to crying about his concussions?

#2243474 Speculation on Red Wings

Posted by Learn2LuvIt on 09 January 2012 - 09:55 AM

The only problem I have with this article is using Quitting and Holmstrom in the same sentence. Tiny detail of the piece, but I could think of much better words to use in replacement after being in the league for 16 years. After his career, if that's called quitting....I want to be a quitter too.

#2243374 Marchand Suspended 5 games

Posted by Buppy on 08 January 2012 - 11:54 PM

Cheap shot in my opinion. Doesn't look like Salo is even looking to throw a big hit, much less a dirty one.

This is why discipline has to come from the league. You can't just assume someone is going to throw a dirty hit, and use that assumption to justify a dirty preemptive strike. Vigilante justice never works, and only causes more injuries and injuries to innocent people.

Marchand absolutely should be suspended. If I remember correctly, he has a history of going for the knees too. 2-5 games I'd say, depending on his repeat status.

#2231743 Red Wings recall forward Chris Conner from Grand Rapids

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 December 2011 - 04:48 PM

No reason to play him unless it's on the top 2 lines, with skilled teammates.

With his size, it'll be pointless playing him on the 3rd and 4th lines. You can only have so many undersized forwards trying to be checkers. Helm, Hudler and now possibly Conner.

#2213731 Season-Long Lines Thread

Posted by blueadams on 09 October 2011 - 12:08 PM

Due to popular demand here on the board...I'm starting one official 'blueadams lines thread,' and I'm going to update it throughout the season (as opposed to starting 50+ different lines threads).

Real Lineup:




Blueadams' Dream Lineup:




...Nothing too drastic. 1) I think Flip is better with Pav, and I think Mule is better with Hank, so I switched those two. 2) Brendan Smith is so much better than Kindl and Commie...come on.

I gave you a +1 for making a singular thread for the season. unfortunately, as per your other line threads, i probably won't look at them.

Watching Pavs and Hank work magic like that makes me eternally grateful that they play for my team.

#2213571 Messing with the lines already?

Posted by Lonewuhf on 08 October 2011 - 09:43 PM

So not even 2 periods into the second game of the season and Babcock is already changing up the lines. I realize that the lines didn't look too good in the first period, but how the hell does he expect any chemistry to be built up between players when he doesn't even keep them together for two games?

Jiri Hudler is Pavel Datsyuk minus Jesus.

Must have read your post today..he's been the best player on the ice by far tonight !

So basically what you're saying is that you should quit whining about him because he's not going anywhere. :P

Believe me, im eatting crow right now and enjoying it. :thumbup:

#2208216 Howard Injured

Posted by zombi on 19 September 2011 - 10:49 PM


Just thought I'd get a good scare out of all of you. I was actually very concerned when I saw this on twitter, but it doesn't sound too bad.

Just a bone bruise on his foot.


Howard suffers injury TRAVERSE CITY – In each of his first two seasons, every injury goalie Jimmy Howard has suffered has proven to not be serious.

It looks like his latest injury isn’t either.

Howard did not skate Monday at training camp after suffering a bone bruise on his left foot on Saturday. He did take part in practice on Sunday.

“It’s nothing major, just took a shot off the inside (Saturday) of my foot,” Howard said. “I tried to battle through it yesterday, it was really uncomfortable. They decided to keep me off the ice and hopefully it bounces back so I can get back out there tomorrow.”

Howard is slated to start between the pipes for Team Red in the Wings’ annual Red/White scrimmage at noon today at Centre Ice Arena.

“The shot was going high, I was going up so the first day I wouldn’t take it in the face and I ended up taking it right off the inseam when I was trying to get up,” Howard said.

Howard said the injury wasn’t serious enough to have an X-ray taken and he said he’s day-to-day.

“I plan on being out there tomorrow,” Howard said. “I got here early today, tried to get as much done as possible. It just didn’t happen.”

In each of the last two seasons, Howard has appeared in 63 each year. He won 37 games each season.

#2195126 Forward lines next season?

Posted by blueadams on 02 July 2011 - 11:05 AM

Yeah because those two pretty much take the same spot that Jagr would've potentially played. *facepalm*

Forward...and cap space designated for forwards...uh, yes, they do.

It's honestly depressing talking to some of you people. Depressing in the sense that your vote counts as much as mine in a presidential election.
