In for a penny in for a pound. I'll be done with this season when lockers are being cleaned out.

 

Atta girl.  Fair weather fans be damned.

If you don't think that playing hockey has an affect on his back, I will assume you've never strapped on a pair of skates.

 

I didn't say that playing hockey doesn't affect his back.  My point was that playing OLYMPIC hockey didn't hurt his back any worse the the NHL already does.  His back has been hurt all year.  If there were no Olympics he's just be playing with a hurt back in the NHL.  The Olympics had nothing to do with it, so those suggesting that he'd somehow be healthy if not for the Olympics are missing the mark.

 

I thought that was pretty clear from my original post.

Wow, some of the responses in this thread...unbelievable.  His back has been injured all year.  It's not like he injured it MORE by playing in the Olympics.  If he wasn't playing in Sochi he'd be playing in Detroit, and he'd still be getting injured because the NHL game is more physical. 

 

Are you people just dying or a reason to b*tch or what?

So, I work in Washington D.C., and apparently NOBODY can deal with snow down here.  So pretty much every employer (including mine) cancelled work tomorrow because of the (slightly) above average snow storm we're currently receiving. 

 

Soooo, while you suckers are toiling away at work tomorrow I'll be watching USA hockey.  And while you suckers are sleeping tonight, I'm getting loaded. 

 

Working for the gov't is AWESOME!

You think every time Smith tries to hand Abdelkader a beer he turns it over to Andersson instead?


Haha, I can't stop thinking about Red Wings beer drinking metaphors now. 

 

I bet Abdelkader works SUPER hard to get his beer open and then shoots it wide of his mouth when he finally tries to take a drink.

i for one am happy kane is american.. say what you want about his attitude or whatever but he's a damn good player.

 

Yeah, for real.  I actually don't think he's got an attitude...any more.  Even if he did, that dude is about to light it up for the Americans and bring us the gold.  I'd gladly watch him punch ten or twelve cab drivers so long as I don't have to feel like I did four years ago.

What's the point of picking a team in the Olympics if you aren't going to pick your national team?  That's literally the ENTIRE point of the Olympics.  Unless you're a German hockey fan and don't have a horse in the race, it's completely absurd to root against your country in an event which is specifically designed for nations to compete with one another.  I could understand not caring who wins, and only caring about seeing good games.  But that means that you would be just as happy to see your team win as any other.  But to actively hope another team is better than your national team makes no sense to me. 

 

Would you root against our home country's world junior team?  How about your hometown high school team?  Silly.




#2483014 2/8 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Lightning 4

Posted by kipwinger on 09 February 2014 - 08:25 AM

I don't know. Had the offense burried more of those chances, then a late goal like that wouldn't have mattered. Detroit cannot finish the game when they have the chance and that comes back to bite them in the third every time. Howard made one huge mistake in this game but made a few good ones to keep the score low.

 

Well according to our coach is was both the offense and the defense.  Apparently they didn't "compete hard enough" in front of the net and if he had just "won our battles" we'd have been ok. 

 

If only there was a guy who's job was to ensure that this team was competitive and create strategies for "winning battles".

Man alive, Jurco has kinda got a mean streak doesn't he?  He was relentless on the boards yesterday.  He looks like he's 12 years old, but he's hard on defensemen.   Ask Gudas. 




#2482560 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by kipwinger on 08 February 2014 - 01:51 PM

I want to be clear, I don't think Byfuglien is the right guy for this team.  Having said that, I think that the weight and fitness comments are a bit off base.  Here's a good article Puck Daddy did on the topic of Byfuglien's fitness..

Also, I'd have to imagine that all the goals he's scored paired with his two all-star appearances and pivotal role in a Stanley Cup championship should probably dispel any notion that his fitness is somehow a detriment to his ability to play hockey at an incredibly high level.

Nobody mentioning Chris Stewart?  I'd take him every day of the week.




#2481205 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

The Shetaco Line.  Trademarked.

F*** yeah, they're talkin' to my boy Backes about the Olympics.  One man wrecking crew on his way to Sochi!
