WHUT A THUGG!!!! THIS ISN'T THA NBA!!!1111!!1!

Let's be real, it ain't just Beantown.

*sips tea*

I would love to get PK in the Winged Wheel...

 

Would you go so far as to say that you need "PK for your bunghole"?

The craziest part about the Clowe play is the Kings were fighting for a playoff spot, he reached over with his stick and broke up an odd man rush.  Had they called a penalty I think it would've been a 5 on 3 for the Kings. 

 

I could never understand how all the officials on the ice somehow missed him reaching over and breaking up the play.  You'd think the officials would be watching the puck. 

 

 

The water thing was unbelievable too.  Since it was Thornton the general attitude seemed to be it was all in good fun.  I can't imagine the s***storm had it been Subban squirting Thornton from the bench. 

 

Agreed.  Heaven forbid P.K. Subban even have fun after the game.  Let alone during it.  If he'd squirted Thornton, the Beantown faithful would have been dusting off their hoods.

Babcock not happy with couple of goals Howard allowed. Said he's going to have a beer and think about who'll start in playoffs.

 

 

Jeff Blashill?

Hey what's up guys, what's been going on lately?  I haven't been watching the game, but for some reason my ears were ringing so I thought I'd check in.

I want Tatar to break 30 sooooo bad. Haven't had 30 since 2009.

Everybody snickers about Florida, but they're just like Columbus.  They're going to come out of the blue suddenly and start kicking the crap out of all the regulars.  Tallon has done a good job drafting down there, and that team is moving in the right direction.

Chara goes down awfully easy for a giant.

I agree, but screw Rask.

Detroit Red Wings Playoff Chances

Beat Carolina 3-2, playoff odds up 3.2 to 96.2%
97 points   42 25-13
 
Need a home, regulation win tonight in the Wash/Bos game.

 

 

No sweat. 

 

Washington is going to spank the Bruins.  Those dumb ass gorillas from Beantown can't stop taking penalties...

 

and Washington has this guy on the powerplay.

#2590726 The Lines to get us in

Posted by kipwinger on 08 April 2015 - 03:17 PM

I don't like Tatar and Nyquist on the same line together.  They're too similar, in both their strengths and weaknesses.  PLUS, it's a total waste of Sheahan's size to put him with two small, fast wingers. 

 

 

Also, I'd call up AA if we clench before the last game of the season.  Because Andersson as a third line center all but ensures that line isn't scoring at 5 on 5.  Ever.

s***.




#2590653 4/7 GDT : Carolina Hurricanes 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by kipwinger on 08 April 2015 - 08:00 AM

Missed the game last night, but looks like putting Dats and Z back together worked fairly well.  Also glad to see Weiss get another point.  Now if we can get Abby and Cole back, and get those top lines shaken out, there's a chance we might be sitting in a reasonably good position in a week or two.

Oh great, Landon to the rescue.  Can't wait for him to be small and weak all over everybody's asses. 




#2589830 Losing Streak affecting Babcock's Decision?

Posted by kipwinger on 06 April 2015 - 12:22 PM

The "only one Cup" argument is pretty hilarious.  Only one??  What a loser!  Then there's the small detail of getting two different teams to game 7 of the Cup finals.

 

If someone were to rate Quenneville's 11-year career in 2008, they likely wouldn't consider him among the best in the league.  So did he suddenly become a great coach in 2009?  Same goes for Sutter.

 

It takes the right coach coming to the right team at the right time.  Babcock is absolutely among the best in the league.  Sutter, Quenneville, Trotz, maybe Tippet also belong in that conversation. You could probably make a case for Alain Vigneault since he got his team to the finals twice, though I can't stand him.  I liked Bylsma but then that team became such a defensive trainwreck I wondered what was going on there.

 

There's really no way to compare which coach is absolutely better given all the variables involved.  I can understand thinking it's time for Babs to move on because sometimes you need fresh blood.  But thinking he's a bad coach is just silly.

 

I don't think anybody EVER said Babcock was a bad coach.  It's just a straw man argument that guys like you use to defend him whenever he's criticized.  Because if we don't think he's the best coach in hockey, then we must automatically think he's bad.  Of course. 




#2589827 Playoffs don't have shootouts?

Posted by kipwinger on 06 April 2015 - 12:06 PM

Why should Howard feel any differently than his coach does on the matter.  Babs doesn't care about, or emphasize, getting shootout wins.  So why should the team?
