#2510390 Kyle Quincey Appreciation thread

Posted by kipwinger on Today, 08:43 AM

For one, I actually do appreciate Kyle Quincey.  All he ever did this season was average over 20:00 minutes a night on a depleted blueline for 82 games.  Along the way he put up respectable numbers in all major defensive defenseman stats, including hits, blocked shots, takeaways, and penalty kill TOI.  Was he as good as Kronwall or Ericsson?  No.  But he earned his paycheck this year despite being much maligned. 

 

Only on LGW can a guy get snarky cheapshots thrown at him for playing big minutes each game, EVERY game, in the most grueling schedule in professional sports. 

 

Atta boy Kyle Quincey!  Here's one guy (at least) who thinks you earned it. 




#2510386 4/18 ECQF Game 1 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Bruins 0. DET leads series 1-0

Posted by kipwinger on Today, 08:23 AM

Is anyone else as pumped as I am today?  I mean, seriously pumped?  A lot of good games the last two days and now...finally...it's our turn!  Anybody see that St. Louis win last night.  How can you not love playoff hockey?  Tonight can't come fast enough.

Leggy deserves to know what it feels like to lift the Stanley Cup,After spending 15 seasons in Nashville.

 

I like Legwand and all, but nobody on this team deserves more than Alfie...except maybe Bert.  I've secretly always wished to see Todd Bertuzzi get handed the Stanley Cup. 




#2510200 Round 1 Line Combinations

Posted by kipwinger on Yesterday, 12:24 PM

"Playoff" Franzen (if you even want to call him that anymore) better show up or that's a complete waste of Pavel Datsyuk. Abby isn't so bad if Z is on the other wing, but bored Franzen makes that line a wreck.

There's a much bigger sample size of Pav and Franzen not clicking than Pav and Gus. Babs has been forcing Pav and Franzen together for years with no real success. Now it's just with Abby, instead of Bertuzzi.

 

Who the hell said Franzen should play with Datsyuk?  Not me.  Franzen-Legwand-Nyquist and Alfie-Dats-Abby.

 

It's that simple.

 

Edit:  Not Andy but rather Abby with Datsyuk.  Edited to reflect the change.

Can Datsyuk play near 100%? Can Smith avoid giving Boston free goals? How quick will the young guns adjust to playoff hockey?

 

Don't worry about it.  I spoke with Tomas Tatar today and he assured me that while he has every intention of listening to loud music, getting smashed, and chasing tail all night; it absolutely will not hinder his ability to score two goals (including the game winner) tomorrow night.  It was more than a guarantee...he said it was basically science. 

 

Tatar + (booze x women x dancing) = Playoff success. 

 

Or something of the like.




#2510125 Would You Trade For Matt Greene's Rights?

Posted by kipwinger on 16 April 2014 - 10:32 PM

you all seem to forget that the rest of the GMs like to rape Holland, so no, I don't feel like giving up Mantha for Greene...and you know that's what they will all be asking in return. Greene would look good here, but the asking price for a bag of pucks will be at least Jurco, and uncle Gary allows this ass raping to go on...


There's no way that you can believe that anybody would realistically use Anthony Mantha as a starting piece for Matt Greene.  Furthermore, that's only the second craziest thing in your post.  The first is your insinuation both that Gary Bettman somehow has something to do with the prices other GMs ask from Ken Holland on the trade market and that he ought to be doing something about it rather than "allowing this ass raping to go on".

Smoke him out indeed....

Well, as my friend The Glistening would say.  That guy needs to "get rill".

Ansar Khan and Brenden Savage both picked Boston.  I'm currently making them rue the day by utilizing the comments of my arrogantly ignorant Mlive character "TheGlistening" to baffle, confuse, and idiotically insult them.  In past exchanges I've accused them of being the "liberal media" for reporting Red Wings loses, as well as attempted to arrange a Khan v. Albom celebrity boxing match for a charity of TheGlistening's choice.  In that case it was a fundraiser to support my character's made up dance troupe "The Tri-City Manikins" located in Saginaw, MI. 

 

Don't ever be a Michigan sports writer and pick the opposition on my watch. 




#2509976 Gus & Tatar almost traded to Calgary per McKenzie

Posted by kipwinger on 16 April 2014 - 08:40 AM

Stop adding common sense to the hysteria!  LOL.  Obviously a year ago, no one had any idea how good Tatar and Nyquist would be.  They still may not even be that good once they are relegated to lesser roles once Z and D are both back full time. 

 

I agree that there's no need to be up in arms about something that didn't happen.  But I disagree that nobody knew how good Nyquist and Tatar would be.  A year ago they were both top twenty scorers in the AHL, and Nyquist was top two or three.  While that's not a guarantee of success in the NHL, it basically means they're among the 20 or so best players not currently playing in the NHL.  It's not like those two were unproven in the way a Mantha, or Frk, or Athanasiou are.  They basically had more value than almost anyone in the hockey world not playing in the NHL (and more than a lot of bottom six NHLers). 




#2509950 ECQF - Series A - Bruins versus Red Wings

Posted by kipwinger on 16 April 2014 - 04:43 AM

Ladies and gentlemen, you heard it here first, two bold predictions for this series.  The Datsyuk and Bergeron lines cancel one another out thus freeing up the eventual reconstituted Legwand, Franzen, and Nyquist line and the Goose gets loose.  SECONDLY, and this is the big one...after taking some time to identify the mismatch and grow comfortable with it, Uncle Mike matches up the kid line against the Krejci, Iginla, Lucic line and the latter never get to another loose puck for the remainder of the series.  Speed kills.

 

Bonus Prediction:  Wings in five.  f*** you Boston.




#2509819 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by kipwinger on 15 April 2014 - 01:12 PM

 

I agree that he has been fantastic. But the D would be a lot worst without Kronwall as far as this season goes. 

 

Agreed.  I just wanted to pick "other" to be different.  I'm like the goth kid of hockey forums.  You don't understand me and you never will mom!
