#2401777 WCQF Game 6 GDT : Ducks 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT) - (Series Tied 3-3)

Posted by Rhah on 10 May 2013 - 09:46 PM

This team has been getting hemmed in their own zone all night and it finally bit them in the ass.


Anaheim has been doing that set forecheck play (one guy left of jimmy, and 2nd guy 10 feet back on right) all series every time we have puck behind net getting ready to release and it seems like we barely ever break it... not to mention clear dump and chases where we usually lose puck for about 3 minutes as they goon forecheck cycle us with their gorilla forwards.

And the stupid only 4 eliminations at home out of 21 stat they just had to show earlier has a chance to F us up. I just hate when they mention streaks or shutouts or s*** on TV. Stupid talking heads.

Too bad there are never suspensions in this league for after whistle thuggery or fighting... because Ducks are probably gonna lose their cool.

I am not even sure my blood pressure or heart can take a series against the Hawks anyway. And with how much announcers are mentioning Corey Perry not having a goal yet and being snake bitten every other breath every game of this series, I guarantee they are de-jinxing him as we speak for a game winner.

Can the Wings ever face a goalie in the playoffs who implodes and lets in like 4 or 5? Ever goalie we face in a playoff series ends up having the best series of their lives. Maybe its the Wings who just don't have super scorers like other teams and we shoot every puck into the guys chest.



#2399084 Things that Shanny missed.

Posted by Rhah on 07 May 2013 - 09:08 PM

It's all going to be subjective no matter what.


You can through the angle out all day of protecting star players with no suspensions or minimal fines, I understand that, but Shanahan is in a position where it is all but impossible to please everybody 100% of the time.


The problem is he shouldn't have to please anybody, he should be 100% consistent (or his little band of merry men who come to the decisions) and they shouldn't listen to Bettman and his bulls*** stars have to be on the ice. It would be a lot better for the league if people understood what was going on, it was consistent, and there wasn't any one playing favorites. its even worse that it seems like he is harder on Detroit because he has to be to avoid looking like a homer... usually Detroit plays one of the cleaner games in the league, they have to or they'd be hit with suspensions left and right.

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.

I don't think Tootoo is tall enough to get at the Duck's heads :)

#2395212 Eller Destroyed

Posted by Rhah on 03 May 2013 - 10:06 AM

This is the same problem that I have with the NFL...defensive player goes to hit a receiver and the receiver crunches down to absorb the hit, effectively lowering their head and it ends up being an illegal hit. Defensive guys can't stop to think, oh is this guy going to shrink down before I hit them? I better aim for their ankle...


You aim for guys chest with a check and he looks down to grab a puck and bam, its a head shot and illegal and suspension. You can't take away the instinct of defensive players or you make the whole game different.

Why do they have to cut these broadcasts so close? 25 minutes to play 20 minutes of hockey (not counting breaks at penalties or set commercial breaks at stoppages)...

#2393713 Pav's Nashville goal is knocked out of TSN Play of the Year

Posted by Rhah on 02 May 2013 - 04:50 PM

Ok I watched the Dan Boyle play in both NHL Top 10 goals and also the TSN Play of the year tourney... I don't understand what is so amazing about it. He goes end to end but only has to beat 1 guy and his team is on a damn 5 on 3, so no defender can really overcommit to try to stop him.


Pasha's end to end goes through every member of the other team finishing with 4 of them around him as he shoots. The two plays aren't even comparable nor should even be in the same list or tournament.

Selanne was also heard commenting that ice conditions are better in northern team's stadiums that don't also house basketball teams.


No sh*t sherlock.

#2392514 WCQF - (8) Wild vs. (1) Blackhawks

Posted by Rhah on 30 April 2013 - 08:10 PM

I feel like nobody ever puts a body on Kane. Probably a bad idea on that scoring play since it looked like a 4 on 3 break practically, but earlier a Wild player stopped short while Kane is right on the boards with the puck barely moving... put a body on him man. Jeez.

Posted by Rhah on 30 April 2013 - 08:04 PM

I've never subscribed to the idea that I can preternaturally affect events by adherence with or violation of arbitrary rules and rituals.


That's your thing! Don't stop doing it if they win...
