#2587044 Former NHL Player Attacks Opponent with Stick During Warm-ups

Posted by kipwinger on 31 March 2015 - 11:44 AM

Well deserved thugs like him are giving enforcers a bad and false reputation.

 

You've regularly argued that goons like Orr and McLaren should attack other players whether they want to fight or not.  For no other reason than to "entertain the fans".  I'm not sure your condemnation is exactly credible. 

 

"If I'm Nonis I'd call up Orr, McLaren, Devane and Biggs tell them to do whatever it takes to give the fans some enjoyment for their money and if other teams won't accept the fight start it anyways, there are too many rats running around and fans want entertainment." - Frankgrimes

Tatar needs two goals to be the first player since 2009 to break the 30 goals plateau.  Does he do it?

 

Also, anybody remember when Helen St. James started a trade rumor about him this year?  Lol.  She's sooooo good at her job.

Great GDT Jedi. 

 

If we win one of the next two games we should make the playoffs. If we win two we should have secured the 3rd spot. If we loose....let's not think about that. Very important homestretch. I'm pumped. Let's GO Wings.

 

Btw I'm not so sure about starting Mrazek. I thought Howard looked at least decent the second and third period. Hope I'm wrong and Mrazek plays a great game tonight.

 

Lol. One overlooked misspelling changes everything.  You haphazardly wrote "loose" instead of "lose".  And, once written, surrounded the word "loose" with "stretch" and "pump".  Thus turning your well intentioned post into extremely raunchy porn. 

 

Get your mind out of the gutter.

Don't worry guys and gals, we've got this.  I burnt an offering at my Katie Strang alter today...and the goddess was pleased.

Not true.

Andog doesn't sound as cool

 

True. 

 

But Emmersson, on the other hand, could team up with Lake and Palmer and you'd have an unstoppable hit machine.

I can't imagine how it feels to lose a parent. I really feel for babs. I hope his family has many fond memories to help them through what is obviously one of lifes toughest moments.

At first glance, I thought that said "coach." Brain hilarity ensued.


Who's Brian Hilarity?

Oh.

I see what you mean.

In my opinion part of the problem is that we are lacking a legitimate No. 2 guy complementing Kronwall. Until now Kronner was able to cover some of Ericssons deficits, but now that he started slumping himself a little bit the state of our top pair become obvious. I'm pretty convinced that this makes the whole team uncertain in some ways. If the top guys you look up to are failing it's pretty hard to build enough self esteem to carry the team, especially if you're a young and inexperienced player. So while Marchenko is certainly an option I don't think he is the solution to our slump. The team leaders Kronner, Zetterberg and Howard have to find a way to play on the level they are capable and in my opinion neither of them does atm.

 

Just to be clear : I'm not saying that Kronwall is the only factor, we certainly have other problems, too.

 

I don't know why not.  We played our best hockey, against the toughest competition, on our West Coast trip.  Marchenko was in on defense, and Mrazek was in the net.  I'm not saying it a guarantee or anything.  But we can clearly win with those guys in the lineup consistently.  And what do we have to lose?  The fragile chemistry that's earning us all these points right now?

"There's always concern, but when I look at our last little bit of games here I like how hard we played," coach Mike Babcock said...We came out, we were organized, we came after them, Babcock said. They scored. We didn't score as (much). I thought (Coyotes goalie Mike) Smith made some real good saves for them."

 

Genius. 




#2585092 Cole to miss next 3 games

Posted by kipwinger on 25 March 2015 - 12:21 PM

Dan Cleary will come in and be our best player in the playoffs.  He'll do it on heart alone.  Because that's what he does.  And while we won't win the Cup, the long playoff run will be exactly what Mike Babcock needs to become the highest paid coach in the NHL.  He'll enter next season at the top of the mountain, ready to bring his revolutionary new message to the team.

 

The message?

 

Try harder.  Try like Dan.

I'm completely perplexed by all of this right now.  Sure our goalie isn't playing great.  Sure our defense isn't spectacular.  I completely get that.  But is our defense any worse than Pittsburgh, or Ottawa, or Vancouver, or Minnesota?  Is our goalie worse than Winnipeg or Calgary?  I mean, what confuses me is why we're falling off a cliff right now.  If we were just a mediocre team, I'd get it.  But mediocre teams are playing more consistently than we are.  We've got the same weaknesses as every other mediocre team, but they're staying the same or trending up, and we are in a tailspin at a time in the season when you want to be heating up.  We added a 20 goal scorer, a 30+ point defenseman, and they're both playing great...yet somehow we're worse off for it.  How does that happen?

Abby!  Nice goal, nice stretch pass by Kindl.  Who thought that would ever get typed on LGW?

Because the day was saved by a secret chemical compound when the heroes were being dominated and were exhausted.

Well lest we blame it entirely on the whipping boys, doesn't anybody even want to mention the fact that zetterberg lost the battle in f front to the actual goal scorer? Cuz...ya know...he did.
