#2284025 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by DatsyukDangles on 13 April 2012 - 12:06 AM

I'd hate to bring up the whole Bertuzzi incident, buuuuut....


I think it's a sign that it was a major dick move if you need to compare it to the Bertuzzi/Steve Moore incident.

I modified one posted earlier in the thread (ValpoHockey, hope they dont mind) to poke fun at our rotten awful luck.


I thought mine could use a revamp after yesterday's game too. Here's a more appropriate version.

Can we just send Kindl in next game and have him murder Shea Weber on the ice? Seems like that would kill two birds with one stone.

If you want to win the Cup, you're going to have to beat good teams. I think you have to try to win every game.

Come on boys, let's end the season on a good note.


#2278335 Babcock heaps praise on the value of Jonathan Ericsson

I think the term "hater" is overused here. If you really had so many people that "hated" Ericsson, you wouldn't hear these same people saying they're impressed that he's playing better now; they'd still be saying he sucked. Most of us just thought -- with good reason -- that the contract we gave him before the season was insane. Good for him for proving us wrong.

Let's get some more of this going, eh?:

Dats was in WWII? :scared:


You didn't know that? Germany actually had the atomic bomb, but out of nowhere Pavel Datsyuk came and took it away.

After this game, I hereby transfer all of my Ericsson hate to Kindl...

Ericsson looked -- dare I say -- good out there?

2. Despite the hate Franzen and Ericsson get on these boards by some they are returning and the Wings will have essentially the line up they are going to start the playoffs with (minus Howard, assuming Helm will need a tiny bit more time).


I have to say, I've never been an Ericsson fan, but he had been playing much better this season prior to his injury. Hopefully he can keep it going!

Anybody else find it funny that Nyquist gets the FSD interview for his first career goal and all they want to do is ask him about playing with Datsyuk?


#2215696 Thoughts on Ericsson?

Posted by DatsyukDangles on 16 October 2011 - 09:11 AM

I like to think I'm usually pretty reluctant to criticize "controversial" players after just a few games, but Ericsson is my one exception. Having watched him since he's come up from the GRG, I just haven't seen him improve much, if at all, over the course of his NHL career. And I haven't seen anything in the first four games to suggest I'm going to have any different opinion about him this year.

I see the guy make stupid plays in every game, whether they're minor blips or major screw ups. Maybe he's out of position, maybe he gets caught on a bad pinch, maybe he makes a stupid turnover, or maybe he takes a bad angle toward the boards and as a result misses a chance to play the puck; but it's always something. I don't consider it good if I "don't notice Ericsson," because he's the only player on the roster for whom I haven't thought to myself "wow he made a good play there." Usually the best I can give him is "well, he managed not to screw that one up."

My prayer is that he has a stretch where he somehow "turns it on" and ups his trade value while some other team is hurting on D men. I'd really rather not be stuck with him on the Wings.
