#2404088 Captain Z

Howard has become a big time flopper, but Zetterberg didn't dive on that play. He had his foot taken out from under him while also being shoved up high. The laws of physics say he did not dive :)


#2404041 WCSF - (1) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (7) Detroit Red Wings

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 13 May 2013 - 04:20 PM

When a goalie is below average for the first 2-3 years of his career and then suddenly becomes a stud behind the best offense and one of the best defenses in the league, that probably means he isn't actually as good as people think. If we have a big game against him early in the series, it could veer him off track for the series (see all 3 Chicago goalies in 09)

I think Detroit will stun the hawks and win one or even both of the first 2 games. Chicago will obviously regroup, but their first adversity of the year will be too much for them to overcome.
Wings in 6

How is Datsyuk the MVP? He played great but Zet or Howard would be clearly the MVPs.... Game 6 and 7 were elimination games and they both pulled through for that, that's how you earn MVP status by showing up on big games.

My opinion is so much better than your opinion! While I agree with you that Z was our MVP, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and It's not like Datsyuk wasn't one of our best players.

Anyway...
MVP: Zetterberg
Best surprise: Cleary
Most clutch: nyquist (both of his points came in OT)
Best beard: Zetterberg
Best neck beard: Howard

Most courageous when separated from bertuzzi by 2 panes of glass: getzlaf
Best logo hunter: Perry
Most overrated: selanne

Some of the best from the Ducks media:

 

Jimmy Howard knocks net off. Zetterberg dive

 

Teemu Selanne crosscheck on Jimmy Howard

I've never seen a goalie called for diving, so why not take a page out of Dom Hasek's book and flop all over the ice?

Hearing these idiot announcers makes me glad I moved away from California

#2403745 Round One Report Card

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 13 May 2013 - 01:31 AM

 

Gustav Nyquist (1G, 1A): A-. Despite his modest production, Nyquist had an excellent series. He was everywhere, and proved that he can play effectively against any opposition regardless of his size. The future is very bright for this one.

 

It's nice that both of his points came in OT and both tied the series up



Corey Perry should get an A+ for effectively shutting down Corey Perry

Just don't let Edzo convince you that Detroit somehow has an unfair advantage in this series.

Someone needs to make one about Hawks fans thinking the Hawks were founded in 2010. I moved to Illinois less than a week after they won the cup, and the amount of bandwagoners is amazing. There's guys that wear Hawks apparel and can't pronounce the names of players on their own team!

It's been close to an hour since the game ended, but I still keep finding myself pacing around my room with my heart racing. I don't think I'll be going to sleep any time soon.

Screw it! I'm in my last month of my senior year in high school anyway.

Go Wings! Fuel my senioritis!

I've been hard on the team in my few posts here, so I'll take a break today. The only thing better than game 7 is . . . game 7 later in the playoffs. This isn't a Stanley Cup year, so I'm going to enjoy this one. It's great experience for the younger guys, and it'll be even greater if they can dispatch a tough opponent on the road.
 
But I'm not going in with that expectation. The Ducks were the best team in the conference not named Hawks. They earned the 2 seed. The way I see it, they're the screw-ups who can't seem to put this series away. The Wings are playing with house money tonight.
 
Hopefully we get an early goal and make it stick for a while. Supposedly the Ducks are loose, but I have to think they'll start getting tight if they go behind, and can't solve Howard. They've come back before in the series, but that wasn't under game 7 pressure.
 
Either way, thankfully my first meeting on Monday isn't 'til 10.

They say they're loose, but would you be? This was supposed to be an easy series for them, but the wings have given them fits all series long. They're going to come out at least as tight and careful as they were in game six. If anything, the wings are the team that is loose. Let's steal one here boys!


#2402087 WCQF Game 6 GDT : Ducks 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT) - (Series Tied 3-3)

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 11 May 2013 - 10:46 AM

Its ok. I just wonder why people bash our up and comers who are actually fun to watch develop (Kindl, Smith, Emmerton) instead of the crappy guys (Bertuzzi, Eaves) who consistently do nothing every game but create a Ducks cycle. I cringe to think of the scenario where Dekeyser is like Ericsson. What if he's hot at the start and then takes his 3 to 4 years to get back to good after a few injuries and the league figuring out his weaknesses? Is everyone going to start pkling on him? I hope not.

I kind of agree with you, and I never like to bash players. I have had a little less tolerance than usual since its the playoffs and I know we're good enough to go far this year. Smith has been great since we brought him up last year, but he has made a lot of mistakes in the last 7 games. Ultimately no one "hates" him, and everyone is still really excited about him in the long run.
I don't understand what you're saying about Bert and eaves. Bert has made that fourth line a factor for the first time this series and eaves has played pretty well too.

I really hope people don't start hating on Deke. He is our future on the blue line

Yea, his pre-playoff prediction was Wings in 7 which I was shocked to see. I guess he got lucky on that one haha but hopefully he is right.

Game 7! Despite anaheim's remarkable ability to come back, Detroit played well
