#2510261 'Twas The Night Before Playoffs

Best time of the year we gonna wake up hate!


#2510204 Playoff playlist - song recommendations

Posted by frankgrimes on 17 April 2014 - 12:29 PM

 

I can't imagine The Mighty Mighty Bosstones would have any "pump up" music lol

 

Now if you were to say the Dropkick Murphys...

 

I know they are from Boston but some of their songs are just made for hockey. Another thing I love about our sport most hardrock/new-metall and metal songs are just matching so well other sports can't say the same thing (nascar with country being the exception):)




#2510056 Poking the Bear

Posted by frankgrimes on 16 April 2014 - 03:28 PM

Poking the bear and not having an enforcer ? Thats probably the stupidest thing one can do if the Wings are getting involved into the rough stuff this will become a blood bad. Only the Blues, Leafs, Flames ( Lucic wouldn't even look at his gloves with McGrattan in the lineup...)and maybe Kings can afford to go into the rough stuff with the big Bear but for sure not the Wings.

 

The only chance to get a win against this team is to keep the pedal on the gas by using the youths speed other than that the Bruins aren't having a weakness :(

#2508618 Play em or rest em?

Posted by frankgrimes on 11 April 2014 - 12:00 PM

Definitely should rest Kronwall, Alfie, Howard after tonights game. Dats needs to get in game shape and the kids should play unless they have any unknown public injuries

 

I would give Nyquist some rest, the guy played lights out and carried the team give him some well earned time off.




#2508410 4/9 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Pens 4 (SO). Wings clinch playoff spot!

Posted by frankgrimes on 10 April 2014 - 01:40 AM

How fitting is that, my 3.000 post - no I'm not bragging just found it fitting - and the Wings clinched for the 23 time :-)

 

anyway congratulations to Babcock and the young guns to be honest I really didn't expect this so hopefully we are never going to read "Nyquist, Sheahan, Tatar or Jurco" are sent down to make place for  [insert over the hill vet] again. I also didn't have much fun watching a lot of Wings games this season but thanks to the young guns I can enjoy the game again.

 

Love the way Babs is calling out Sindy and the Tankuins :-)

 

Mr. I throw the bank at this g uy before his contract is up, best coach in hockey by far




#2507526 Mike Babcock Appreciation Thread

#2507213 Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

Posted by frankgrimes on 08 April 2014 - 03:11 PM

WOW. JUST WOW. Still so many people butt-hurt about the Legwand trade? Y'know what? Holland should have just dressed Jarnkrok as our #1-4 centers and we'd probably be at 110 pts and first place in our division. Getting really sick of hearing all of the crying about Legwand and Holland as a bad GM. Try to take your fingers off the keys for a sec and realize that it needed to be done and, realistically, that we might not be sitting where we are right now if it wasn't for Legwand being brought in.

Just my 2 cents. You can't drink that milk anymore, stop f'in crying over it.

 

How about not reading it then if it annoys you so much ?




#2507181 Apparently it can get worse in Vancouver.

Epic job by Gillie and Torts running this team into the ground. They have had two extremely good goaltenders and are now left with Lack (already overplayed) and Markstrom. Gillian gave Grabber and Hodgson away for basically nothing and their AHL talent pool despite Shinkaruk and Horvat is very blank. However is going to the new GM there will have his hands full


#2506928 How about some love for Howard!

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 April 2014 - 11:55 PM

Howard (so far) has had as much of an impact on the Wings recovery as anyone (minus goose;). When I saw his stats a month ago I almost shat ...but said he can redeem himself here IF he wins almost every game. So far he has. ...Remember when Osgood had the WORST season ever, but just kept saying 'Ill be ready for playoffs' & his playoff performance alone had him considered for team Canada... I may be bias though, I'm a Jimmy LOVER :)

 

I'm cheering for whoever goalie gets the start they are BOTH on the Wings right now so and there is nothing better than having two goalies doing well and pushing each other. Sure I have a soft spot for the Monster because of all the things he had to go through in his life but that doesn't mean I'm a Howard "hater"




#2506924 Dive of the Year

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 April 2014 - 11:42 PM

Like people mentioned Sindy can win all the trophies, stanley cups, be rich as hell and having an unbelievable beautfiful girlfriend at the end of the day he sometimes acts like a spoiled little brat if things aren't going his way. Boy would I love seeing him do that s*** against Backes or even better Colton Orr...

 

He is the best player in the world why do you have to use such low tactics ?!




#2506877 Backes on playing against Malkin and Crosby

Posted by frankgrimes on 06 April 2014 - 02:02 PM

As a huge Backes fan I didn't like it either, Hitchcock should look at the replay again. Bordelau threw a clean hit and Shattenkirk hurt himself with his own stick bad luck and well wishes but Backes acted like a monkey.

 

The Blues coach also said someone will go after Bordelau next time they are meeting so maybe that's Jackman? If the wannabe toughguy has at least a bit of a brain he shouldn't do it the only same goes for Backes, the only one who might do well against Bordelau is Reeves and even that's a long shot so let's see.
