#2414208 Fraser's take on Penalty Shot

Posted by Ally on 29 May 2013 - 02:11 AM

NBC basically seemed to say that it COULD be a penalty shot but that it shouldn't have been one which is the opinion I've seen from almost everyone.
Agreed, it's not the reason we lost but it's certainly a part of it. It's just a shame to see such inconsistent officiating. Jimmy was rattled about the call and it showed.

Very well said. I'm so proud to be a fan. Win or lose I love this team.
(But preferably win tomorrow)

#2410777 Red Wings don't belong in the same rink as the Hawks?

Posted by Ally on 24 May 2013 - 01:29 AM

I wish I had bothered to find this guy's twitter since I mentioned the hammer/nail analogy earlier during the game.
Funny how as the series goes along the "nail" is looking more like a railway spike.

#2409588 WCSF Game 4 GDT- Blackhawks 0 @ Red Wings 2 - (DET leads series 3-1)

Posted by Ally on 23 May 2013 - 12:48 PM

I feel bad for fans of other teams because their GDT can't possibly be as good as the ones FlashyG puts together.
I'm hoping for a Kronwall hit on Hossa. Maybe Toews because he's been so whiny.
I'm as nervous as two nervous things. Lets go Wings! (Didn't mean for that to rhyme)

#2409295 Helm Status Update

Posted by Ally on 22 May 2013 - 05:35 PM

This makes me sad. Especially when he's saying that when they guys are getting cheap-shotted that's when he wants to be out there the most. Just reminds me how much heart that kid has.
I really miss Helm

#2408977 Babcock tells players they are soft. Pushes them to play better.

I like picturing Babs saying "how soft are you?" to players.

Matt Cooke is just the worst.

#2404294 Any pickins from the Canucks carcass?

Posted by Ally on 14 May 2013 - 01:43 AM

The idea of trading Datsyuk for any of those plugs is just absolute nonsense. Stop it, seriously.
Kassian or Edler...even Bieksa wouldn't be bad to have but the asking price for any of them would be absurd and I just don't want them bad enough that I'd want to give anyone good up for them.
Burrows bites, we don't have room for the Sedins and their declining production, and the thought of Kesler diving around the ice in a Wings jersey makes me feel physically ill.

#2400509 Things that Shanny missed.

Posted by Ally on 09 May 2013 - 12:21 AM

I started this thread after seeing the Borque elbow. I don't care about the Abdelkader suspension, it's over and done with. I also didn't mention that suspension in the original post. This isn't first grade childishness this is confusion about why certain hits that are such a blatant violation of the rules aren't being looked at.

#2398739 "You-Got-Kron-Walled!"

Posted by Ally on 07 May 2013 - 03:24 AM

A couple of my friends from Windsor were at this game. They always send me pics and vids since I can't be there.
This is the one they sent me of the Kronwalled chant.

#2397178 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

Posted by Ally on 05 May 2013 - 11:29 PM

That wasn't a head hit. What don't you people understand about that? It was a terrible missed call, but how can you compare it to this hit?

The problem is that every hit needs to be looked at separately. I'm not comparing Abby's hit to any other hit. He got suspended and while I didn't think it was dirty, it's completely reasonable for the league to make the call that it was.
I mention the Weber hit because it is a perfect example of why people get upset about suspensions. The league cannot say that they are worried about head injuries or that they are going to suspend hits where the head was targeted if they are going to blatantly ignore cases like that one.

Whoopsie. Did I wander into a Canucks forum?

#2397173 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

Posted by Ally on 05 May 2013 - 11:17 PM

They got the call right. I don't think it was a malicious hit, but it was careless, and the league is really trying to remove contact to the head from the game. They let this one slide and that message goes out the window.

That message went out the window with the unpunished Weber headslam.
