#2397003 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

Posted by Ally on 05 May 2013 - 06:57 PM

I knew this suspension was coming. I don't like the hit but I also don't think it was dirty. There's no way Shanahan could suspend Gryba for what was obviously a clean hit and then not suspend Abby for his questionable one. I'm upset to lose Abby but if he got nothing and we won the series it would be the only thing anybody remembered about it. I don't want to have to deal with people saying Shanahan gave this round of the playoffs to his ex team. I want to beat them without Abby and have them left reaching for excuses as to how the 7th seed Red Wings managed to kill their post season.

#2393409 Players who showboat after scoring

I love the showboats.  Why try to take excitement out of the game?  They want more goals because they want more cellies.

Can't stand the word "cellies" just for the record.
It doesn't take excitement out of the game in my opinion. And there's a big difference between showing excitement and being kind of classless about it and I think a lot of players cross the line.
Also I think your statement is kind of ridiculous. They should want more goals because it helps their TEAM...not because they want to feel like a rock star.

I don't mind a small celebration, I don't expect every guy to skate away like he doesn't care.
I can handle when guys go a little bigger with their first goal, buzzer beaters, overtime goals, or highlight reel beautiful goals but I never like dropping to one knee and making a big production of it.

#2393184 WCQF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings 1, at Ducks 3. (Anaheim leads, 1-0)

Posted by Ally on 01 May 2013 - 03:47 AM

Several thoughts:
Settle down on Kindl. The kid is not "terrible". That said, our rookies looked terrified and confused so I hope their nerves subside a bit and they figure it out.
I'd like to see Bert in even if it's on a lower line...I have a good feeling about him in this series.
Hiller was way better than Hiller. Where did that come from?
God I hate Corey Perry sooo much.
Can't believe anybody is bagging on Ericsson after that since he was one of the players I was actually really pleased with during this game.
Lastly, I still think Detroit will take Anaheim in 6.

Last night I had a dream that Detroit was up 3-1 in the series against Chicago so here's hoping that I've become a psychic.

Great, now Dallas is a disappointment to TWO fan bases.

It's very sad spying on other games. But it's sadder that you'd rather miss the playoffs.

Go Sharks, Kings, Nucks...and Blues just for good measure

Never been so stressed in my whole entire life.
I still have faith...but not a whole lot of it.

I haven't been this mad at the NHL in like...a week.

#2385430 Bert thinks he'll be back this season

Posted by Ally on 16 April 2013 - 07:03 PM

What he brings to the team is slowing the development of Nyquist. Can't have that anymore.

I respectfully disagree.
Bert is effective with Pav and more importantly Pav likes playing with him.
He's helpful in the shootout and with us fighting for every point we can get, a shootout point can make or break the end of this season for us.
Last, we only have one player that anybody is even remotely intimidated by (Tootoo) and with Bert we'd have another. I like having a big, tough, guy on a line with Dats.
Bert brings a lot to this team. If you don't see that we're lacking in his absence, then we haven't been watching the same top 6 this season.

Go Oilers.
And I want the Blues to lose too but I can't cheer for Vancouver. I tried and I can't.

High picks don't guarantee superstars. I mean, I even heard about one team that drafted a magician with their 171st pick! I can't remember what team it was.

^oh boy.

Don't care about first pick because anyone could get it.
DO care about a playoff streak because not every team can have that.
