#2402348 WCQF Game 7 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Ducks 2 - (DET wins series, 4-3)

Posted by Hairy Lime on 12 May 2013 - 07:50 AM




Some game 7 mojo to get us going.....goosebumps 

What were the Wings doing on the Power Play? They were moving the puck to a more advantageous spot on the ice and not constantly settling for shots from the Blue Line. Is that even allowed?!?! I'm confused...

I hope Bert is put on the top line and Tootoo is in for Samuelson, but I'm not going to hold my breath. 

#2397017 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

Shanahan will just be another St. Louis Blues player to me now (actually he already was for inaction on Weber last year).


That is the worst insult he can get from Wings fandom.


Another St. Louis Blues player ... that helped us win 3 Stanley Cups...


Lets not get carried away. However you feel about this situation, Shanny will always be a Red Wing. 

#2384577 Blues vs Hawks

Posted by Hairy Lime on 14 April 2013 - 01:36 PM

Right, cause we've never had a physical team since 2002

Yeah, one, and we won the Cup that season. Coincidence? But seriously, name one team that Detroit has had a heated rivalry with since Bowman's departure. Most physical games have been one-sided. I think there was even a players poll a few years back that voted Detroit as the "least hated" team. That's not surprising. Since year 2 of the Babcock/Holland regime, Detroit has routinely had the least physical crop of forwards in the NHL. Outside of Helm (injured), Drake (retired) and Tootoo (inexplicable a healthy scratch against some of the more physical teams?), Detroit has not had many consistently physical forwards. That's not an opinion, that's a fact. 

But I'm not going to argue about it. It will get us nowhere. Right now, I'm just hoping Detroit will make the playoffs...

#2384556 Blues vs Hawks

Yeah, it's a good, physical game. THIS is hockey! Not the candy-ass tiptoe through the tulips game The Red Wings play on most nights. Rivalries are what make hockey; unfortunately, The Red Wings have no rivalries anymore, mostly because they do not engage in physical play due to the Charmin soft teams Ken Holland has assembled since Bowman's retirement.  

#2384377 Can someone tell me why Brunner is playing the point on PP?

Posted by Hairy Lime on 13 April 2013 - 12:03 PM

I don't even try to figure out why Babs does what Babs does anymore; it makes my head hurt. But the kool-aid drinkers say he's "the best coach in hockey", so who are we no-nothings to question his infinite wisdom. 

#2376368 Huskins to Flyers for conditional 7th rd pick (2014)

Posted by Hairy Lime on 30 March 2013 - 12:28 PM

What? How do we not at the very least get Claude Giroux for a prize like Huskins! Get Ray Shero over here!!

#2375240 Iginla Traded to Pittsburgh

Posted by Hairy Lime on 28 March 2013 - 02:41 PM

Iginla? Ah, who cares, Samuelsson is practicing ... and eventually he WILL return - take that, Pittsburgh! And Bert, lets not forget him.


Pittsburgh gets two aging, beat-up forwards? Yeah, we can match that...

#2375007 Ray Shero making the NHL his *****

Posted by Hairy Lime on 28 March 2013 - 09:31 AM

Go root for the Pens then

Watch out; giving props to any team or GM other than The Red Wings or Ken "I wish Bowman was still here" Holland is strictly forbidden in Red Wings nation...

#2344558 Jordin Tootoo: Usage? (6:57 TOI vs. Columbus)

Posted by Hairy Lime on 22 January 2013 - 01:52 PM

Would have rather had Konopka or Prust. Better players and tougher. 

#2323539 Do you want us to trade for Ott?

Posted by Hairy Lime on 02 August 2012 - 09:12 AM

"Tootoo-Ott-Abdelkader as out 4th line?"

Three guy who win about 10% of their fights ,,, no thanks. We should of signed Prust, but we didnt. What else is new.

#2319969 Red Wings make "helluva" offer for Nash, no response

Posted by Hairy Lime on 18 July 2012 - 09:11 PM

Sorry, I like Nash, but he is not worth his contract. We need to use our assets for defense, I just fail to see how the Wings improve. We lose scoring depth, we lose assets, and we get a player that's never proved to score more than 80 points.

We would of lost a guy who has never scored more than 66 points himself and who disappeared in the playoffs last year, and a player that at times has shown promise, but more often than not has just looked so-so. We improve by having an unstoppable 1st line, even if teams focus on them. The 2nd line?? Not so sure about them. I agree about the defense, but...

And scoring a point for Columbus is like scoring two points for a good team. I'm not saying he would score 160 points in Detroit, but he would sure as hell put up more than 80. And Nash doesn't float, which would only make Datsyuk's job easier.

But it's not going to happen, so it's a moot point.

#2313512 Opinions if Wings have to settle for 'Plan B': Semin and Carle

Posted by Hairy Lime on 03 July 2012 - 11:00 AM

I don't know if they're a Cup contender even if they sign Parise and Suter. As for Semin, I actually think he's a better fit for this team, as well as a whole lot cheaper. I think we would be crazy to pay Parise the kind of money that I am hearing that some other teams have offered him. He scores goals, but he is not pure goal-scorer - and he looked like crap in the Finals! Semin isn't a pure goal-scorer, either, but he's a right-handed shot, and that is something this team can use.

But we really need Suter.

#2313042 Parise Watch [update x2]: Red Wings OUT of Running

Posted by Hairy Lime on 02 July 2012 - 04:02 PM

Parise is becoming more annoying than Lebron.

#2298514 What's REALLY going to happen this off-season?

Posted by Hairy Lime on 01 May 2012 - 01:59 PM

I just heard from a Boston pal that there is talk down there of the Bruins possibly moving Lucic, don't know how much truth to it? BUT... Abdelkader + Franzen? Well, I can dream, can't I. I don't expect many changes. I'm sure Holland STILL likes the team that he has. Do you think someone has told him that Detroit has been eliminated, because I'm not even sure he watches the games.
