#2417618 WCF : (5) Los Angeles Kings vs. (1) Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by Rhah on 04 June 2013 - 02:01 PM


Darryl Sutter confirming what is fairly obvious: Mike Richards not playing tonight (concussion)



Thought it was league policy to suspend the offending player for same amount of time as injury? Why Bolland still suiting up?


They also wait until blood drawn/seriousness of injury to determine penalty/suspension. This is partially tongue in cheek because I detest that method of punishment, however, since it exists, why do Hawks get off scott-free?

I am sick of some of the Hawk's puck luck. Sure they got hosed by the refs twice, so did a lot of teams, problem is they get away with hits after the whistle with zero calls from refs or Shanahan. Then say we are playing too tough, yeah during the game we do, we don't do cheap s*** after the whistle.


But, we stink cause we couldn't score even when Crawford lost his stick. We lose a stick on almost every PP they that scored on us. Well, maybe half of them. They lost a stick against Kings, they just nonchalantly hand one to D-man, and then go get another from bench. Like walking on water.


Then Crawford gets bad bounce off glass and stacks the pads 10 feet out from crease like a goalie from the 80's and Kings can't get a shot into empty net... sigh

#2417222 Wings interested in Stalberg and Bickell

It was more of a conflict of personalities with the coach.


He questioned the coach on his playing time and Q was such an arrogant jerk that he thought he could give the kid a coaching moment and sit him while they played us because they gave us zero respect. If they thought we were a good team and they weren't gonna sweep us, he would have had all his top talent out there from game 1 onward.


They didn't even know how to matchup lines, they thought they were gonna steamroll us rolling 4 lines with little care about matchups like they are doing to the Kings and did to the Wild. It took Babcock giving Q a coaching lesson for him to re-learn how to coach with some actual strategy.


And this thread makes me a bit sick to my stomach, next thing you know, you guys will want to trade for Shaw. Puke.

I would be too, but I'd be very very upset if my team's captain was pulling the crap Crysby did during that game.  Frustration or not, you'd absolutely NEVER see 95% of the captains throughout the NHL start acting like a petulant child.


So, the 5% is 2.5% Crosby, and 2.5% Toews?

I think where the mics are located do a terrible job of letting people on tv know how loud it is at the Joe.  The fans love the Wings and do show it at the Joe, especially during the playoffs.


Yeah, it seems like I first noticed and more often notice Jimmy's post love tapping at other stadiums but rarely hear it on the TV for home games. Seems like the mics need an upgrade or re positioning.

I just don't see how Brodeur is still relevant enough to be on a game cover. Seems like young people would just think of him as some old ass goalie still playing... not some kind of super-stud like Quick or some up and comer.

#2416493 Who can be sent down to help the Griffins?

Posted by Rhah on 31 May 2013 - 09:22 AM

This is the exact reason for the "paper transactions" that occurred when the Red Wings sent Lashoff, Nyquist, Andersson, and DeKeyser down and immediately called them back up.




And by "cheating" I meant more like being a bit unfair for the opponent of the team in the AHL playoffs. But, I am only commenting, like I said, if the rules allow then do it because its all about these guys progression and experience for the mother team.

#2416058 Z's hilarious reaction to Pierre

Posted by Rhah on 30 May 2013 - 09:19 AM

He was probably trying to get some strategy out of Z so he could then interview Quenneville and ask him how he will respond to Detroit's planned strategy.

sigh, Hawks' fans on Facebook were quick to pull out the rulebook on the penalty shot call, but now want to stuff the rulebook in the drawer on the no goal allowed call... saying the ref doesn't know what he was calling on that play and apparently oblivious to Saad throwing a punch at a guy with no helmet.

Did nobody see the trip/interference on Zetterberg before all that started?

Well, there are 5 teams left in the playoffs as of right now.  They consist of the last 5 Stanley Cup Champions.


Red Wings need to win tonight to ensure its 4 of the last 5 still alive and not the last 4.  Let's Go Red Wings!!!!


Funny they keep mentioning on the radio about this except one minor detail. They do the last 4 years, that if Hawk's win, its the last 4 stanley cup champions... convenient to trim the number to 4 from 5.


I have also heard Chicago radio guys twice today talk about and ask analysts how Hawks match up to Kings and isn't it daunting for a team to know they have to face Quick who has only let up 10 goals in last 7 games.


Last I checked, take away an empty netter and a chintzy penalty shot, and our own Jimmy Williams hasn't let in too many more than that and yet they apparently aren't scared of us.

Edzo only agreed not a penalty shot because Hawks were already up.

So no replays from NBC for the possible high stick before 1st hawks goal this period, or the possible offsides?

Hehe... ok I will redeem myself with this. I want to go back to making them feel like this and I wish I got CBC broadcasts... like 10x better opening than NBC.

Couple people on radio talking about how Q did better with matchups since they were the home team. Well, obviously. It only took 3 games of this series for Babs to school Q on how to handle line matchups. Its like either the fans are too dumb to realize its part of the strategy of a game or Q and his team were so arrogant at the start of the series that they could just roll their 4 lines one after the other ignoring matchups because they think they are that good.


Hawks/Q got a free coaching lesson from Babs though.


I'd also like to point out that last ngiht the 4th elbow of the series from the Hawks targetting a Wings head (not even counting cross checks to the head). Still not a peep out of the league office. Apparently only if its a shoulder during a check is the league going to make it a point to stop targetting the head, if its flying elbow wrestling moves or using your hand to smash a head into the glass, its ok and sometimes not even called a penalty. Getting sick of hypocritical NHL. Uses bonecrunching hits and fights in commercials to market the league while suspending certain players they want but not all... get consistent and stop talking out of the side of your mouths.
