#2465215 Leafs/Wings 24/7 Episode 1 Discussion (12/14)

Posted by kipwinger on 16 December 2013 - 09:31 AM

I want more Bertuzzi and some really hard hitting questions like "How much can you bench press?"  or "How awesome are your tattoos?"

 

But seriously, spotlight Hank's injury, Pavel's awesomeness, Alfie's quest, and Bert's redemption.  Hockey gold right there boys.

Wow, I had no idea how many trained medical professionals there were on LGW.  I should have known after a good portion of the forum concluded that Orpik "shouldn't" have been injured by Thornton, but it's pretty clear now that you've all chimed in on Franzen's injury.  Keep up the good work guys and gals, this thread wouldn't be the same without you pulling comments out of nowhere to validate your preconceived bias against Franzen.


You're absolutely right it is a total mind/body experience like doing yoga while petting puppies and drinking the finest scotch and smelling something that smells awesome all while having a tantric orgasm

OH CAPTAIN MY CAPTAIN

what were we talking about?

 

So anyway, what's your opinion on something hockey related?  Literally, ANYTHING hockey related.

Dear Mike Babcock,

 

You already make us suffer through having Dan Cleary on the team.  Why do you make us suffer through having him on the powerplay too?  If it's a joke, your sense of humor is truly dark.

 

Sincerely and Respectfully,

Kip

Dear Red Wings,

 

Ben Bishop is f*cking huge.  Please stop shooting the puck directly at him, and perhaps try to get him moving side to side a bit.  If it doesn't work, no harm done.  What you're currently doing doesn't work either.

 

Regards,

Kip

Yeah, Jurco's a little outclassed against the big boys.  Move Tatar up and put Jurco on the third.  See what he can do against lesser competition.

I'm watching it right now.  It would be really good if it weren't for all that crap about the Maple Leafs.

Boring.  Give me Jurco or give me death!




#2464078 Kindl

Posted by kipwinger on 13 December 2013 - 03:01 PM

Kulikov is no stop gap - he is a young Dman who would be playing on this team for 10 years. It would be more than Kindl to get him too. 

 

Agreed, it would definitely take more than Kindl to get him.  And I meant he'd be a stop gap in the sense that you have quality young offensive d-men coming and likely given Kulikov's age he won't get a super long term deal.  3 maybe 4 years max.




#2464059 Kindl

Posted by kipwinger on 13 December 2013 - 01:38 PM

Kindl reeeeeeks! Can't wait for dekeyser to come back.

 

Dekeyser coming back would likely have no effect on Kindl, as his return would push Lashoff down the ladder. 




#2464000 Kindl

Posted by kipwinger on 13 December 2013 - 09:18 AM

I agree he's not as good as last year, but when you've already got that opinion of a guy you're looking for every little thing he does wrong.  And when it's a third pairing defenseman, there's a lot of ammo. 

 

Example:  It was either last game, or two games ago that Datsyuk got completely undressed along the goal line for a goal.  Not a single mention of it in the GDT.  Why?  It doesn't happen often, and nobody scrutinizes Datsyuk.  It's easier to keep banging away on something Kindl or Quincey does. 

 

Another Example:  Mr. streaky and inconsistent Johan Franzen had shorter goal scoring droughts last year than Datsyuk or Zetterberg.  Any mention at the time of them disappearing from the score sheet?  Nope.  Franzen gets that title hung from his neck.  Why?  Because he's already got the inconsistent tag.

 

In conclusion, Kindl isn't very good defensively.  He's not supposed to be.  He's a third pairing guy who's an offensive d-man and is on track to score around 30 pts. this year.  He's doing his job.  We're not losing games because of Kindl.

Jesus, lots of pessimism in the GDT for a game that's tied.  Bunch of sourpusses!

Also, Marty St. Louis is the most underrated player in the league.  And that's saying something because pretty much everyone thinks he's great.  But that guy does it all...and with class.  What a hockey player.

Bishop's looked impressive.  Almost as impressive as that time I saw him running amok crushing buildings in Tokyo.




#2463477 Zetterberg placed on LTIR

Posted by kipwinger on 11 December 2013 - 04:05 PM

I just want to see Jurco already.  Any chance we can make room for him given all the new cap and roster space?

I still don't mind seeing Abs in that role - I think he does it well. He has a role, he knows his role... and he shuts his mouth.

 

That being said, I'm most excited to see what that 3rd line can do. Really hope they light it up.

 

I'm most excited about the fact that you subtly made a reference to The Rock in that post.  FOR THE MILLIONS............
