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.
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!
Again and again...the officiating in the NHL is of a spectacularly amateurish level compared to other major sports, It is so inconsistent that its hard for casual fans to be sure what the rules are or know what's going on and it turns them off. Hell I've been watching ice hockey for 20 years and I still can't tell when the f***-bags in the middle are going to make calls or not....and absolute joke in terms of consistency and professionalism, and there are so many games I've watched over the past 5 years where the officials have decided the outcome more than the players.
Apart for Bettman's golden boys, I don't even think its bias, just incompetence.
That said, wings were good again tonight, and if they can maintain those energy and skill levels, they'll be a lock for the playoffs
