#2281976 WCQF Game 1 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Predators 3

Our PP is like the hot chick in high school that you know doesn't put out...looks good but getting nowhere !

#2280479 For once I agree with Don Cherry

Posted by puckbags on 09 April 2012 - 08:38 AM

Haha WTF? You think because he doesnt play Canadian teams that often we don't hear about him or see him play? Trust me, the Pens don't need to be playing the Canucks for Sid to get exposure here in Canada. I hear what Americans, and fans of American teams are saying about him all the time and you all sound like babies bitching and complaining about a guy who dominates the league. Everybody on both sides of this argument needs to get over this. Yes, he ******* and complains to the refs - but the majority of hockey players do. We are spoiled in Detroit because we have a mature, experienced team, so we get really poopy when we see anyone whining. Crosby's antics are just amplified because everybody, even you haters LOVE to hear about him.

The fact that you guys are all agreeing with some of the biggest bone heads in hockey should tell you something. All Milbury has ever done is ruin the New York Islanders, hit some fan with his shoe, and push around some kid at a minor hockey game. Cherry? The guy is absolutely insane. And Torts? Talk about a guy who needs to STFU and just coach. Take some hints from Babcock on how to be a professional. Talk about a whiner.

And for the record, if the Pens and Nucks play in the final, everyone outside BC will be cheering for Pittsburgh. Vancouver is one of the most hated teams in Canada.

I didn't even click on the link..it sounds like 5 minutes of my life I would never get back. Every time Milbury opens his mouth he says something stupid...Every time Torts opens his mouth he whines about 50X worse than Crosby..and every time Cherry opens his mouth the CBC covers his ass because they know that Hockey Night in Canada is the only thing that keeps that s***ty broadcasting company alive. The line between being competitive and being a whiner is very marginal but I do know one thing when Crosby is healthy he is the best player on earth...yes even better then our Datsyuk who is by far my favorite player in the world. This games needs stars and like it or not Crosby is as big of a star as our game has..Deal with him..he's not going anywhere !

datsyuk and zetterburg are really going to be physically targeted by the preds... i would hate to see one of them get injured. they better keep their heads up and play with a physical edge because nashville is a dirty team and will try to injure our star players and that is NOT what we need.

also need players to stand up for each other and fight if needed. can not be pushed around against a physical team like nashville

Why wouldn't they? Datsyuk doesn't shy away from the physical contact, in fact he initiates contact in the corners and uses it to his advantage. If we play our best or close to it and get to Rinne early we will win this series...if he gets on a roll and we can't score it will be very very frustrating.

In denial? Lol yeah ok buddy.

Well revisit this in about 2 weeks and if I'm wrong I'll eat crow. But this isn't the old predators team that used to just enjoy getting to the playoffs. We've tasted a tiny morsel of success. We've come back for more.

Right there...youre going to win both games in Nashville bit lose your first home game? That's just ass backwards because you're not a very good road team but you are dominant at the Joe.

Until you win something you are !

I just read the TSN power rankings for s***s and giggles and it has us 7th which is about right, the funny thing is that under key injuries it has us listed as having none. I'm pretty sure that Helm is a key injury to this team.

The biggest issue I have besides the obvious lack of effort is the changing of a dominant winning lineup from the other night. Franzen is back but bury him down the lineup a bit and let Gus play on the 1st line where he was the other night. Leave Kindl in and let Ericsson watch from the press box for a few games until Kindl f***s up.

Tell me about it. Gus plays with heart every shift but it's okay, we've got Johan back to beast it up with his amazing, inspirational effort levels.

Franzen is playing?

#2273875 Brendan Smith sent back to Grand Rapids

Posted by puckbags on 25 March 2012 - 12:23 PM

I thought Kindl was way better last night..hopefully he can keep it up. As far as I know Smith has to be sent down because with E coming back we have too many guys and I would assume that Kindl and Ericsson would both have to pass through waivers to get sent down and then come back up. Smith to me is clearly the best out of the 3 and once there is no roster limits he will be back up for the playoffs. Having a wealth of healthy NHL ready d men come playoff time is a great thing to have even if you arent fans of all of them.

Hurler would the greatest player all time in a non contact ball hockey league at your local rec center. As soon as he gets brushed he goes down. Mma training my ass.

Kindl looks good tonight. Some healthy competition for that 6th spot will do that !

Ward might have to stop 50 tonight, good period, tough luck on the goal ! We will win this game if we keep playing like this.

As much as I like Smith- - I REALLY do- - I will be thrilled to have the greatest Defenceman of all time back in the line-up tonight. If Nick declared himself a game-time decision saying he wanted to test it twice to be sure, then you have to assume he felt good on it this morning and just wants to make sure he gets the same result later tonight before the game. I think that leans more to him playing tonight then not playing. Here is to hoping #5 is back tonight and the Wings get rolling. GO WINGS!

I love Smith and I really don't think that he should be sitting but I think the big picture here is that Kindl and Ericcson need to get some games in before the playoffs start to get game ready. To have a 3rd pairing of Quincey - Smith/E/Kindl come playoff time isn't such a bad problem to have.

Confused how a 3 on 3 coming into the zone can turn into a guy wide open top of the slot..sigh...
