#2676016 WCF: St. Louis Blues vs. San Jose Sharks

Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 15 May 2016 - 11:01 PM

Blues were lucky to win game 1.  San Jose was the better team but that soft goal killed them.  

Better team when?  They got smoked on just about every metric throughout the whole game

He isn't a complete player, but he deserves a Cup. Can't believe that team lost in less than seven games.

 

Anyone who thinks the Pens can't compete with any team in the West is wrong.

Why the hell does he DESERVE a Cup?  You EARN a Cup




#2666961 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Holland's MO is to stand pat, sign a role player or two, and wait for a superstar to emerge from our recent draft picks.

And his name is Dylan Larkin

Flyers in 7, a tough 7.

Are those reverse lights?  Oh no, its just the Wings backing in to the first round.




#2665186 4/6 GDT : Philadelphia Flyers at Red Wings, 8:00 ET

This wasn't just a big win, this was a MUST win. Howard decided to be Mrazek of last year, take over late in the season and pull out some clutch fkn wins.

 

I hate sayin it, but right now, all I care about is a Silver Anniversary.  One more game is all we need for that and I can chill out, that is unless we start looking like a contender and then the playoffs are a big Fkn deal. 




#2647807 Red Wings at the Halfway Point

Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 14 January 2016 - 12:34 AM

Im really happy with certain aspects of the team and very disappointed.  Mrazek and D-Lark are fk'n amazing.  Larkin will be the next Captain.  Mrazek shows just how well he performs vs Howard and its amazingly impressive.  Better yet, he is still very young and hasn't hit his peak. 

 

Disappointment by a large margin is our shots on net.  Remember when we easily doubled up our opponents in that area and if we were even tied for SOG, we were having a bad night and probably going to lose that game.  Now we are lucky to tally 25 on.  The other negative although its not disappointment, but the inevitable, is D showing his age and Kronner getting pretty soft from his peak due to the same thing.

 

I totally expect to make the playoffs again and not by the skin of Octopi teeth either.  I don't think we are a contender but I cant complain with the performance we are seeing from a team with very  young or old players on the team.  Blash has change the face of the game, but I think some of his strategies are easily beat by more experienced coaches.  He too will improve and I totally expect to see us trully contending in the next few years.




#2629576 10/9 GDT : @ Red Wings 4, Toronto Maple Leafs 0

THIS is exactly the team Zetterberg and Datsyuk need around them to be successful. Not so the last 3-4 years. This clicks.

Oh hell yes.  The team has a pop in their step that I haven't seen in years.  Toronto looks EXACTLY like we did last year and we are looking like a brand new team.  I dunno if its Blash or if its just the amount of youth on the team, but we are moving and we are making plays.  Before these same guys looked like they were skating through mud and playing defensive hockey with spurts of life. 

 

I love the look of this team, we are gonna do quite well this year.




#2601318 ECQF : (7) Sénateurs d'Ottawa vs. (2) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 26 April 2015 - 08:52 PM

That wouldn't help in this case. Once the play was whistled down, the Habs players stopped playiing. It's arguable that The Canadiens might have swept the loose puck away if the play hadn't already been whistled down. If you allowed it after review, then you'd be giving a goal to one team for something done outside of the actual playing time. 

How about not blowing the whistle 2 microseconds after it hit him?  Quick whistles go to the refs favored team, watch enough games and you'll see a pattern.




#2411072 Red Wings don't belong in the same rink as the Hawks?

Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 25 May 2013 - 03:05 AM

1 more loss and Chicago won't belong on the same rink as Detroit.

 

Quoted for undeniable truth :D

 

But I think it should read.

 

1 more loss and Chicago won't BE ALLOWED on the same rink as Detroit.

Am I a non-Bandwagoneer since I was just happy we kept the streak going with any wins being gravy?  Cause this is some serious gravy :)




#2396371 WCQF Game 3 GDT - Ducks 4 @ Red Wings 0 (ANA leads series 2-1)

Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 04 May 2013 - 08:41 PM

Lets just say that Abbey got screwed and move on.  He popped on the hit but he didnt shoot an elbow or shoulder straight at his head. 

 

We should worry more about actually getting a fkin net as we have been given ample opportunity and blew it out our arse.

If keeping some stupid playoff streak is the main goal, you're doing it wrong.

 

This roster needs some serious revamping.

No the roster is young.  They lack experience but they are just fine on the team.  Dropping multiple core players and the best defenseman in modern times doesnt help in the following year.
