#2541440 10/15 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by Euro_Twins on 15 October 2014 - 11:17 PM

I was at the game. All I have to say is JIMMY!!!
Fyi I almost got the Jimmy Howard chant going a few times but people just weren't into I guess. Too many empty seats. Embarrassing.

Seats will be empty when your team sucks. But a mixture of a bad team and not being in a hockey market is a disaster. I saw that FLA-OTT game last night and it was BAD. Honestly though, Wings have had their share of attendance problems too. Not as bad as Florida but there are some nights the empty seats are kind of embarrassing. The other night against Anaheim was one of those nights. 




#2538682 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 October 2014 - 05:19 AM

Lol we should dig up that thread when Weiss was signed. Everyone so happy and giddy except for the negative nancies(realist...or people who were RIGHT).


Seriously? The guy isn't even getting a chance to prove himself. You're basically trying to throw it in peoples faces that you were right about Weiss like it's a good thing to be right about.


#2539091 How different things could have been

Geez - I feel like an old man here.

 

Don't feel bad. I remember trade rumors involving Yzerman for Lindros when Eric refused to play for the Nordiques. Yes, I'm THAT old.

#2538012 Babcock " I dont think it will be my final year here"

Posted by VM1138 on 02 October 2014 - 08:38 AM

I don't think he does.  There is so much turnover in the roster going on that he's basically getting a whole new set of players to coach.  He may have been here for ten years, but most of his team will only be with him two or three years.  You had to jump when you had the same roster for 10 years but already we're seeing a changeover, and I expect some retirements and trades to make the roster that much different the next year or two.

Babs is the best coach in the sport of hockey. He can name is price and term as far as I'm concerned.




#2529466 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 02 July 2014 - 12:40 PM

Why the hell wouldn't you want to make the playoffs? This isn't pre-lockout days where unless you had the hottest goalie in the history of the game did you even have a hope of causing an upset. 

 

LA were the number 6 seed in the west this year. 2 years before that they were the number 8 seed. The Devils were the 6 seed that year vs the kings. In 09-10 the Flyers were the number 7 seed in the East and they made the Finals. 

 

The point I'm making is, if you're roster is good enough to make the playoffs right now, why blow it up, because as we've seen, anything can happen. If you looked at the Rangers roster before the season began, and even after they traded for St Louis, would you still have picked them to beat Pittsburgh? 

 

This team is good enough to make the playoffs. And if anyone thinks that making the playoffs even if only to play 5 games is less valuable for the young kids experience than missing them completely, then you want your head testing. 

 

Last season, there were a few mistakes early that were costing us, and then the injury bug hit like Ive never seen. You cannot lose key players for extended periods like that an expect to keep competing, yet somehow we did. All of that experience is frankly, invaluable, such that when Pavel and hank come back healthy they'll be able to lead the way, and our kids last year will be able to provide depth and secondary scoring that every team needs to win. 

 

There will be ups and downs, but this team is trending up. The fact that we didn't sign a big name free agent on 1 day of the year doesn't mean otherwise.

Oh, and as for who's with you - when Fat Guy In A Maltby Jersey is the only poster who agrees with you, then you are badly, badly in the wrong.




#2529463 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by Nev on 02 July 2014 - 12:38 PM

 

I'm officially calling for a 2015 TANK job. I think we can all agree, there is absolutely NOTHING to amp us up and get excited about in the upcoming season. Literally, NOTHING. 
 
Instead of praying for another 8th seed finishing of limping into the playoffs and getting decimated in the 1st round, I would much rather hope for an absolute tank and hopefully get a top 3 draft pick. Not only will this give us all something to get excited for, but it might also spark some much needed change in the organization's management. 
 
Who's with me?  #Tankit2014

 

 

Well, I've read some ridiculous hyberbole on here lately, but this one takes the biscuit.

 

Last year, with no Datsyuk, no Zetterberg and an out of form Howard we still made the playoffs.  What do you think we could achieve with our 2 star players and our goalie back to 2013 form?

 

As for nothing to be excited about?  Pavel Datsyuk excites me every time he steps onto the ice.  Nyquist.  Jurco.  Tatar.  Hanks beard excites me.  MANTHA.

 

Go ask Oilers fans how Operation Tank is working for them, and how much they are looking forward to another season of it.




#2521817 Mantha named CHL player of the year

Posted by darkmanx on 26 May 2014 - 08:47 PM

 

I think a lot of fans see comparisons to a Hall of Fame caliber player, or they read what a prospect could develop into, they don't take into account that most players don't reach their full potential.  Some are complete busts and never see the NHL.  Others have decent careers, but never reach what their top end potential was projected to be-guys like Bonk, Anders Ericsson, Smid, and Upshall.  It's more likely that Mantha puts up Fraznen type numbers than he turn into some perennial All-Star power forward.

4-1 at the end of 2. Eddie O must be crying in his Patrick Kane pajamas right about now.

Step 1 - Watch the Blackhawks move the puck out of their zone.

Step 2 - Watch the Red Wings (try to) move the puck out of their zone.

Step 3 - Cry.

Step 4 - Wait 2-3 years without having to go through 10 years of pathetic hockey and wellfare picks

Step 5 - Watch the Red Wings move the puck out of their zone

Step 6 - Smile

Good to hear that d-bag Olczak is not doing this game.

 

What's funny is the Hawks have become masters of subtle interference if anyone has. 

 

Watch when the Kings are trying to gain the blueline, or as the Hawks are breaking out of the zone.  These playoffs refs are letting a lot of interference like that go in general.  Especially at the blueline.
