#2248459 1/23 GDT : Blues 1 at Red Wings 3

We need to get a real fighter on this team.

So we can get stupid instigator penalties that may cost us a goal or a win in a tight race? Good plan. Stuart dropped the gloves..you don't have to win a fight to show that you aren't backing down.

Us healthy, them healthy, 7 game series, I like our chances, we are deeper everywhere and we have the better goalie.

#2243476 Marchand Suspended 5 games

Posted by puckbags on 09 January 2012 - 09:58 AM


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.

Why doesn't Marchand take a page out of Datsyuk's book and just match Salo shoulder for shoulder to gain an advantage? I've seen Dats do it a million times against bigger or smaller guys. It's a clean and effective way of gaining position on a similar play. I don't want hitting out of the game but hits like this are a joke, its contact made below the waist with an attempt to send a guy landing on his head.

This game is over. This is the exact same team that has folded when the going gets tough for how many years now? :thumbdown:

I love it when a guy just blurts out some man love for a guy but has no reasoning to back it up.

#2231837 Red Wings recall forward Chris Conner from Grand Rapids

Posted by puckbags on 02 December 2011 - 10:47 AM

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.

Huh? If you work your ass of every shift I don't think it really matters how big you are. Being a good checker doesn't mean you have to send guys through the boards every shift. I think Helm and Datsyuk are prime examples of that. Smaller guys who are always positioned well and work their ass off. Helm stripping the puck from a guy is just as effective as him attempting to plaster a guy through the boards.

There is something really satisfying about coming into Colorado on Floppa tribute night and shutting these guys out !

#2213593 Messing with the lines already?

Posted by puckbags on 08 October 2011 - 10:14 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?

Haha, you haven't watched the Babcock coached Wings very much I take it.

Jiri Hudler is Pavel Datsyuk minus Jesus.

Jesus = Work ethic?

#2211445 10/1 Exhibition GDT: Red Wings at Toronto Maple Leafs

terrible lineup for tonight, hopefully Leafs don't dress 3/4 of there roster tonight like last night. Helm has been invisible every game I watched with him, I don't think he will ever play in the top 6.

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

I think I dislike Ericsson more than Hudler....

...he is playing like s***e! Overpayment PLUS a no trade clause....super

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

#2210866 Brendan Smith suspended for 5 games

Posted by puckbags on 30 September 2011 - 11:38 AM

Oh how have times have changed..it used to be the responsibility of the player to skate with his head up or you got crushed Scott Stevens style..how you can beat the s*** out of the puck, skate with your head down, do fancy toe drags, pay the price for it and the other dude gets 5 games. Like i said before I'm all for getting the cheap hits out of the game but this sport was built on speed, having your wits, keeping your head up and good clean aggression..clearly its changing.

Thanks Ozzie, Not the fastest, not the most technical, not the biggest but worked his ass of and had one of the most underrated careers ever.
