#2668865 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings at Tampa Bay Lightning, 7:00 EST

Could the Wings please just decline a PP? Instead of building momentum it seems to kill it such an enigma

They are all horses but also much healthier than our veterans. Our guys are horses as well except one has a bad leg and two bad knees and the other has a bad back. Injuries suck. 

 

And why is that because a second pairing defenseman had to play as a number 1 for years,  Z even after his back surgery didn't get his icetime reduced.

I'm of the mindset set now that we've made the playoffs, we've kept the streak alive, we're not expected to go deep, now is the time to start playing for the future. We need to get these kids in the lineup to get them some valuable playoff experience, as well as potentially give us a better shot at winning. I'm okay with Mantha playing big minutes down in Grand Rapids, if that's what management believe is the best for his development.


Sooo many times agreed to this. The all so important streak is alive let's play the kids.

yes, they don't have experience but guess what you don't get playoff experience by not playing! The vets are close to the end of their careers, the transition had to start now sink or swim with them!

I don't know why this staff is so reluctant to let the kids play it just doesn't make sense, guess the Wings would have send down McJesus or Ekblad too

Don Cherry is an idiot. He's an embarrassment to Canadians.

 

No he is great and someone to admire. There are a ton of idiots around our game but Don Cherry is far from being an idiot.

I don't know how Don cherry is still allowed to talk on TV.

 

A great hockey mind, who has seen and witnessed it all who also happens to show national pride. Hockey is better of with guys like Don Cherry there should be more guys like him.

 


Howard can't move side to side at all. He looks iffy in net. I'd like to see mrazek in net.

 

Glad you aren't running the team then.

That couldn't be the worst attempt at a save in history

 

With the exception of maybe 2 guys (King Henrik and Price)= there aren't any goaltenders able to stop that laserbeam. One heck of a shot

Tampa in 6 wings couldn't even defeat the Rangers B team without King Henrik.

Hope I'm wrong and everyone plays their heart out for Pasha one last time


#2667111 Pavel Datsyuk Career Appreciation Thread (Mod Warning Post #40)

Posted by frankgrimes on 11 April 2016 - 03:12 PM

All I can say is there aren't enough words, pictures or videos to sum up how much joy I've been having watching this guy make other NHLers look like beer league players for over a decade now. Also loved the way he conducted himself, Pasha could make you look stupid and flatout amateuerish but he never ever did some over the top celebrations, sometimes it looked like he would just prefer to go back to the center ice win his faceoff and do it again without making a big deal about it.

 

Pasha you will be missed, all the best in Russia and hopefully you'll bei n the HHOF one day god knows you deserve it.

 




#2667109 Flyers Chairman Ed Snider passed away

Prayers and condolences to all the whole Snider family.

 

I think the guy has been a tremendous owner, the Flyers basically had a blank check each and every year. Probably the biggest Flyers fan ever. Not only did the Flyers lose a great owner I think the whole hockeyworld has lost a great hockeyfan and an even better person.

 

Owners who aren't in it for the quick buck or to increase the "franchse value" by making business first decisions are the best owners one could hope for, as we've seen firsthand with Mr. I.

Tarasenko vs Kane.. Sounds like an exciting matchup.

Go blues go!

Backes captain serious is going to be epic too and don't forget Seabrook has to answer for his blindside hit on Backes to Reeves too in some sort of form


#2666903 Mantha

Posted by frankgrimes on 10 April 2016 - 05:00 PM

 

Unreal. Are these old farts drinking on the job? Why on earth would you throw one of your top prospects under the bus like that? Did Mantha get with his daughter? A lot of these guys are gonna wind up playing next year and he certainly gives us a better chance to win now than Andersson. Not everyone on this team can be a two way player that sacrifices offense to play D. The team needs someone that can score goals and they need it bad. 

 

Maybe Mantha is too big, too young and scoring too much. I mean, every other team in this league would clearly take the upcoming superstar Anderson over Mantha just makes sense.

 

Also I think it's ridiculous that this organization is constantly throwing him under the bus why draft him in the first place if you don't like the guy? Such a weird situation




#2666722 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Posted by frankgrimes on 10 April 2016 - 06:56 AM

Mitch Album article about Pavel leaving.

http://www.freep.com...olumn/82835594/

 

Such a touching and well written article thank you for posting this. Atta boy Pasha is not only gifted with magiclike talent the guy is also one tough SOB, fighting through this injury and then still coming back and still being the best player on the team, hats of Pasha, hats of.

 

In my mind the guy has done more than enough for this franchise and I would love to see him play one more  year but guess what? I would love it even more if he doesn't have to use his phone in order to get in touch with his wife and doughter. Honestly after reading all of this I'm very happy for him and it's even further proof that the guy should have been the captain.

 

Hopefully the fans are giving him a minute long standing ovation whenever the last game in the post season will be. Thanks for everything Pasha, will be such a sad day seeing you lace em up one last time.
