#2614533 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 15 June 2015 - 03:11 PM

This just sucks. I want this post-season in the rear view mirror ASAP. I have hated every single series this year, and nothing turned out the way I wanted it to. Good riddance, and f*** off whoever wins.

 

Well look at this way, if Stevie wins a cup that's more reason to try bring him home.




#2613767 Tampa Bay Lightning dress code for fans

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 09 June 2015 - 09:40 PM

This nonsense again? I bought tickets to Game 7 via Ticketmaster resale with a UK credit card. No issue but I probs wasn't in an area that I wasn't allowed in. However I do wonder what I would have done as I was with my partner and her dad (she's a Bolts fan). Would we have been separated? In short, I had no trouble from staff beyond a girl who wouldn't accept my ID for a beer and wanted a passport (although I had already bought a beer), just lots from fans around me who told me to "go home". He wasn't a nice man. He was an angry man.
 
On a side note, in like, 2012 I went to the Bolts home opener in a Wings jersey (I bought the tickets the night before because they weren't selling - this was the days of Guy Boucher and his ultra-boring "trap" I believe. They went on to lose 7-4.) and the lady on the door said "Oh I don't know if you can come in wearing that." I laughed, it's a standard joke, I had Rays fans dissing my Tigers hat, that sort of thing happens, it's part of the inter-team camaraderie that you share as 'fans of sport'. I walked in. She didn't laugh however. She looked at me with serious intentions of asking me to leave. Once again it's lucky I was with my partner in full Bolts gear (well, not FULL gear, that would be silly. But tee and hat). In short (again), this doesn't seem to be a new policy, it's just they're in their first final since 04. Being there in the post-season, literally they seem to have everything riding on it this year - the city is buzzing with a real belief that they will win, billboards are changed seemingly daily (seriously they were all Stamkos, then suddenly Johnson, then "Bolts Win"), non-hockey fans (like my partner's cousin, uncle, and gramps) are keeping up with every game and even starting to become fans. I think they're doing everything to make sure it happens because if it doesn't, man that's going to be the biggest let down. The Hawks will move on, restock, go again next year, after all (kinda like us at the moment) it's not like they really need one. They've been pretty spoilt recently. Thinking of it, I hope Blash can get this sort of fire in us... just in a way that is everything opposite of Jon Cooper.

I've made some of my most genuine friends chirping at each other like this, but there is always that guy/girl who didn't understand that this wasnt a serious thing and try to get rowdy about it.

I once went to a Chicago/Detroit game when my AAA team was in town for a tournament, the blaxkhawks werent really relevant yet, but I jokingly made fun of a girl I found attractive and I ended up becoming friends with her dad.
Who chirped me literally on the smallest things, when we accidentally iced a puck, or blew an edge for example.

I've also been witness to a Pittsburgh fan, a grown man, spitting beer at my twelve year old goalie.

I don't like the fact that the soldier has had problems selling his tickets, or anyone for that matter.
But I also understand that tampa isn't Chicago, or Minny, and needs to do everything they can to grow the game in the area...
So I'm conflicted, which ultimately means I don't care enough either way.


#2612802 WCF : (3) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by frankgrimes on 02 June 2015 - 05:47 AM

Thought this thread would be about the Ducks versus Hawks instead it's another Quennville versus the best coach in all of hockey (useless) debate.

Q is a very good coach but he is no Babcock. There is a reason wh the guy is so highly regarded and finally the highest paid coach in the league.

I thinkk the top coaches are: Babs > Suter > Q > Tippet > McLellan > Julien > Hitchcock > Bylsma

up and coming ones: Nelson + Cooper + hopefully Blashill

Anyway, this game came down tothe big guys and well...the Hawks big guns delivered the Ducks didn't they didn't even goon it up :(


#2611409 WCF : (3) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by Euro_Twins on 29 May 2015 - 01:48 PM

I realize that there's all sorts of residual hate from the rivalry (or what was left of it), but I really don't understand hating the Blackhawks and wanting teams in our conference (and particularly our division) to win.  Firstly, because f*** anybody else in our division.  But secondly, because the Hawks play (and win) EXACTLY like we used to.  They're the Red Wings.  If anybody should be able to appreciate just how good they are at what they do, it's us.  If you'd just thrown Red Wings sweaters on the Hawks last night, it could have easily been confused for the 2009 conference semis. 
 
Maybe that's the reason why, now that I think about it. 


Because if the hawks win they become a dynasty. They get classified as better then the wings in the late 90's because they did it in a cap era, and also f*** the hawks that's why

#2608149 Babcock granted permission to talk to other teams

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 17 May 2015 - 01:50 AM

People forget that babcock coached the hell out of the kids the last two years with all the injuries and we made it to the playoffs both years. I truly believe that if someone else was coaching the Wings, one of those two years we would have missed the playoffs. A great coach adapts to the talent he has. People think his methods haven't changed but I guarantee they are different this year then they were in 2008-2009 when he could coach on auto-pilot.

He is the best coaching option out there. With any other coach the Wings take a step back. Go get him Kenny!

Can we all stop with the political discussion.  I know that nobody means any harm, but this isn't really the place for it.

Killorn basically holding Quincey the whole play, then takes him down to ground... not a hook?, not interference?


Not holding? Yup, disgusting

Don't get salty, if you want I can find the non-call that did lead to a goal.

you think I'm siding with the nhl lmao they are corrupt as f***, but why complain about a call that didn't affect us?

I like the way we're playing, but the only thing that matters in this sport is goals.  

 

Our stars need to score here.




#2603327 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 29 April 2015 - 11:47 AM

Honest question - since the head WAS the initial point of contact, was anybody here expecting a game misconduct? I was shocked when there wasn't even a penalty on the ice. I know that this hit looks like every other Kronner hit and the contact to the head was because the player's head was down, but if you just looked at this hit independently and switched the player's jerseys...wouldn't you want a Tampa Bay player at least penalized for the same hit? I'm not saying it's dirty...just not the cleanest hit I've ever seen.

 

It was a bad hit and would've been much better for the Wings had Kronwall been ejected in a game they were already losing. 

 

Had he gotten a major and a misconduct I think there's a good chance he only gets fined, if anything.

This is part of the reason why I went elsewhere.  This place really has turned into Mos Eisley Spaceport of Wings fans.  


I enjoy the cantina atmosphere.

Man, we are getting eaten up in the 3rd lately. Other teams bring it and we look like we are just PRAYING something bounces our way.
