#2601265 ECQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 4, at Lightning 0 (DET leads series, 3-2)

Posted by frankgrimes on 26 April 2015 - 05:25 PM

I want to pipe in and say that I think it's sad when people chant the negative stuff. I wouldn't even chant "Tampa Bay sucks!" I don't think they suck. I don't think any team or player in the NHL sucks. They are all competitors in a difficult league. I saw a post here that said "somebody should injure Tyler Johnson". I mean, really? When he scored the two goals and carried his team, I felt happy for him. Of course if the Wings lose, it would be major heart-ache, but that's not going to make me "hate" other players or teams. I just cheer, cheer, cheer for the Wings, and try to feel good for other teams and players when they have success. I would like to see Joe Louis Arena focus on positively impacting their team and let go of the silly "Bulls***", etc. chants. It's not going to happen, though, "the mass" just doesn't operate that way.

 

This is hockey not holiday on ice. I'm also happy for some players from other teams but if one attends a game and is into the crowd-stuff I for sure expect negative chants towards the opponent. The job of a crowd is to make cheer for the home-team and make it unpleasant for the opponent to play in a building. That  Kate Perry sign from a Jets fan was just pure gold

Minny is a difficult out, no other way to slice it. I wouldn't be surprised if they beat Chicago, but I wouldn't say they are favored.

 

Let's hope they do so.

#2598361 Carcillo speaks out on Montador's death and mental health issues

Posted by frankgrimes on 22 April 2015 - 07:14 PM

Hate the guy in the ice but this goes to show you that most hockey players are just great persons of the ice. Man trying to play after receiving such news is mental toughness kudos Carcillo. Pro leagues really need to do a better job in preparing these guys for the life after hockey. Ask them to coach some minor leagues, get into GM stuff, become a player agent, analyst, inside..don'tforget them because they are retired.

#2596761 Is Joe Louis Arena a tough place to play?

Posted by frankgrimes on 20 April 2015 - 12:58 AM

 I think the hangar will erupt tonight in Winnipeg.

 

That place will absolutely go nuts it's been almost 20 years since they've had playoff hockey there and if the Jets are scoring first the roof might not hold up.

Senators still are having 2 home games and will turn this series around. Even if not what they've accomplished is perfect. If the series is close to over make it doo that the Habs will have to replace some guys in the next round. At least Leafs fans are showing up when their team is bad too..Habs lolol French chickens
