And the wonderful NHL refs decide yet another game...

His next story will be "red wings dont deserve to be on the same golf course as the hawks"

#2409074 Octopus Toss Suggestions/Advice GAME 4

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 21 May 2013 - 09:22 PM

Hmmm, this thread got me thinking... what if fans threw an octopus onto the ice after the Red Wings had iced the puck and clearly needed a break?  What would the referees do if it was obviously a ploy to rest the players?
I remember how many times the NBC commentator would credit a player with a "wily veteran move" to buy his linemates some extra time... wonder if they'd give the same credit to fans.   :g:
ETA: I know that there's a provision that allows the referee to assess a delay of game penalty to the home team if fans obviously are interfering, but I don't remember ever seeing that happen.  I'm curious how it would be handled.

I think if people start doing things like that, they'll start cracking down on 'pi throwing and it will ruin the fun for us all

I don't know if anyone is actually using this for their Facebook timeline cover or not, but I'll just continue to keep updating it as we move forward...

I am! Keep me coming

#2409015 Zetterberg's Slap shot

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 21 May 2013 - 04:41 PM

Well actually he called me "kissazz" so let's not get into technicalities. Me calling him a kid isn't really an attack.

Links not working

I didn't notice that. Perhaps it was a mistake? Either way, the childish behavior gets old fast. How about you both agree to disagree.

Bill Clement said it was the right call. If Bill Clement says its the right call, its the right call. You can't argue with Bill Clement.

#2408710 WCSF Game 3 GDT - Blackhawks 1 @ Red Wings 3 - (DET leads series 2-1)

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 21 May 2013 - 12:15 AM

It may be homerism, but the more I watch that disallowed goal, the more I agree with it. He didn't touch Howard, but Howard has no way to be in the right position to make that save. If his crease was open, he would have come out to cut the angle off on that shot. Good call. :thumbup:

It will be tough trying to explain that to my Hawks fan friends though... :dntknw:

Maybe something about Chicago's devoted fanbase

Or a big picture of toews getting manhandled by Zetterberg

#2407582 People who don't "buy in" to Corey Crawford

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 20 May 2013 - 01:04 PM

What I don't get is, Crawford got smoked last season, in the first round. And so, going into this season, everyone was all "Goaltending's a real question mark (because of what happened last season, in the first round)." And, about one game into the season, everyone decides, "Oh, hey, goaltending's not an issue. Phew." And, like, Kevin Weekes verbally fellating this team a few weeks ago, basically saying, "They've proven last season - the first round - was a fluke. They're going all the way this season, absolutely no question whatsoever." Which, ok, is maybe not so hard to understand. But, I dunno, where I come from, the regular season really doesn't mean anything. Nor does smoking the eighth-seeded Minnesota Wild (and their backup goalie, and their backup goalie's backup goalie) in th first round. ("Man, I really wasn't sure about these guys, but now that they've beaten the Wild in five games, I'm all in, baby.")
And then, y'know, that ridiculous Sports Illustrated thing...

Howard strings together 2-3 good seasons and lots of people say he hasn't proven himself enough, but one good season from Crawford and suddenly he's the guy who proved everyone wrong and is going to carry his team to the cup. I don't get it

Just give us 3 more games like today Wings...

Or 11 :D

#2407081 Delay of game penalty

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 18 May 2013 - 09:05 PM

This rule seems to be getting a lot of attention and scrutiny lately. I want to know what you guys think of it.

I understand why the rule was put in place, but it's deciding way too many games. I think they should treat it like an icing and not let the guilty team change lines.


#2407063 Trade Smith ASAP!

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 18 May 2013 - 08:13 PM

this thread has now killed any legitimate attempt for rational fans to be displeased with smiths poor play.
roughly everyone that has been on smiths case lately does NOT want him traded. most people just want him sat so he can learn a lesson and stop hurting the team with boneheaded plays.
however, now everyone on the smith bandwagon will instantly turn to this thread and make the generalization that anyone that critiques smith is a moron.
let me say this though, he made at least half a dozen mistakes in these first 2 games that are worthy of a weeks worth of bag skates. scoring a goal from 10 feet away into a wide open net thanks to the strong play of linemates does NOT redeem someone from all those mistakes. additionally, smith has been bad in his own end all year .
many of you keep saying how absurd it is to rag on smith because hes a rookie. however you are all just as guilty of lumping anyone that is down on smith as the irrational reactionary type of fan when many of us have legitimate gripes about his play.

I don't think that's true, since not a single person has agreed with the OP.

I agree that smith hasn't played well, but he'll never be good in the playoffs if he isn't exposed to it. He improved a ton from game 1 to game 2, which is good. Babcock just needs to stick with him and he'll come around

I hope you didn't hurt yourself when you jerked your knee like that

#2406038 People who don't "buy in" to Corey Crawford

Posted by wingsfan4795 on 17 May 2013 - 07:13 PM

Crawford is actually vastly underrated. Imo he's a top 3 goalie in the league, probably a top 5 goalie in the league of the past 20 years. Chicago's a decent team but without him they'd have a lottery pick this season. How he wasn't nominated for the Vezina AND Hart trophies is crazy. 
I actually think Detroit could win this series if Chicago had a human being in net and not that space alien born on planet SHUTOUT. 

I guess I'm the only one here who knows your post has an ulterior motive
That should cover it for the rest of the series
