If I knew there wouldn't be GDT graphics for tonights game I would have done one.


Hockeytown normally gives me a headsup when he's not going to get one done.

#2450807 Marty the Marmot mascot attacked during WHL game

Dumb move, but it didn't look like he was actually trying to hurt the mascot.


It almost seemed staged until they kicked the fan out.

Howard is starting in goal.


OH, and thank God Cleary is still on the 2nd line...  :nono:




That's what happens when you're the coach and GM's boy.

I thought Sammy actually had a pretty good game tonight. I'd like him off the point on the PP and I wouldn't shed any tears if we got him to waive his no trade clause but I'd much rather cut Cleary loose than Sammy.

This image was supposed to go with the GDT but I forgot to add it to the bottom

A lot of people were really puzzled by the Wings using their extra 2nd round pick in the draft on him this season but the Wings scouts have to be feeling good about themselves right now.


He's grown from 5'9 155lbs to 6'1 187 lbs, and is 1 point from equalling last years scoring #'s in 28 fewer games.

On top of that he's also been winning fights this season.


It helps that the Storm are a powerhouse offensively, but those are still awfully good numbers for a guy we're hoping can be a good 3rd or 4th line pest.

Had to put this one together last minute so I wasn't able to do images for rosters. 

#2449351 Varlamov Arrested

Posted by FlashyG on 31 October 2013 - 08:19 PM

Personally I find what Varlamov is accused of to be even more reprehensible than vehicular manslaughter.


Someone who commits manslaughter had no intention of harming anyone, generally its a death as the result of an accident.


If Varlamov did the things he is accused of, its not an accident but a willful act intended to hurt a woman.


There are 2 sides to every story though and he has the right to defend himself so I'll wait until all the facts are out before casting any judgement on him.

Kronwall expected to play this game?


He said he expects to play, he just has to be cleared by the doctors. From what I read that should happen by tomorrow.

Senator's Roster and stats have now been added.


Fun fact - Over the past 5 periods of hockey the opposition's goalies have outscored the Wings 1-0.

Here's to hoping Pav shows Chara how to ride a moped, or whatever else he's doing in this picture...




I'm pretty sure this was taken seconds before they both burst into a rousing rendition of gangnam style with the dancing.

#2442082 Steve Yzerman wants Game Misconduct penalties for fighting

Posted by FlashyG on 05 October 2013 - 12:17 PM

As far as I am concerned the anti-fighting crowd and Bettman can go  watch soccer, baseball or basketball. Players are the ones who should know better than everyone else and they've already voted FOR fighting so it's here to say and I am very glad it is. Also, one has to keep in mind how the DetroitRedWings were a much bigger deal a few years ago when we've had guys like Downey, McCarty and Koccur. Yes, the DetroitRedWings were more skilled too but those guys are also great locker-room guys and people other players are feeling better with.


If everything is in the name of player safety and enforcers are providing that everything should be fine.


This stupid league led by an undersized new york based *******, who has no clue about the game is more and more going the way of becoming soccer on ice and yet there are people who are ok with that. The nonsense will only stop once this game has been destroyed once and for all.


I'd rather see no NHL, than an even more dumbed down product (aren't failed franchises, no hipchecks and less hitting enough of a dumbed down)? For the 8 ,3 million a year waste of human being not it seems...when will the owners wake up and kick this guy out of the league.


I am glad, there are teams like the Leafs who are tough, skilled and not getting pushed around easily. I love our rivalry with them but there fourth line should be something other teams should want to recreate too. With guys like Devane, Broll  in the minors they can soon ice even a third line from hell...and that's impressive.


Also the stupid Blackhawks are a freaking boring team to watch, rather see the Blues or Kings style.


Saying those of us who have no problem with game misconducts for fighting should go watch soccer is no different than us saying you should go watch MMA or boxing if you want to watch fights.


What you see as destroying the game will in all likelihood increase the number of viewers and the number of kids playing hockey. Very few fans will actually stop watching hockey when fighting is removed from the game, many say they will, but many also said they'd stop watching over the lockouts yet almost all of them came back.


What you see as "dumbing down" the sport is actually putting the focus back on hockey and drastically improving the product on the ice. If we can get rid of the Colton Orr's of the league and replace them with guys who actually play hockey then the product has been improved considerably.


If the players got to decide everything about how the game worked, they'd still be playing helmetless...sometimes decisions have to be made on their behalf.


Its not a matter of if fighting will be removed from the game its a matter of when. If you really like fighting more than the game itself then you better get your fill in the next few years because like it or not its going to be gone sooner rather than later.

#2441324 Steve Yzerman wants Game Misconduct penalties for fighting

Posted by FlashyG on 03 October 2013 - 11:47 AM

While what you're saying is true - I agree with everything you've posted so far...


Concussions also take place with clean hits, hits from behind, players losing an edge, and strike the boards etc etc...............


To be honest - as long as hockey remains a contact sport - a sport in which a player carries a weapon (stick) - there'll always be a significant risk for injury...There's just no way of getting around that.


So are you arguing that unless we can get rid of ALL risk in the game, we shouldn't try to remove ANY risks at all?

I don't normally log in and post, just read, but people, listen. Remember when Drapes got his face ran into the boards? You think McCarty WANTED to fight Lemieux before that? Nope. Fighting in hockey is the equalizer. You make a dirty play on the ice, you're going to have to answer the bell.

If you want to get rid of fighting, get rid of all the cheap dirty plays and the players who commit them. That's how you'll get rid of fighting,

Hockey is a sport where team mates look out for each other, that should never change, it's what makes hockey different from every other sport. You know when Lidstorm got ran into the boards, SOMEONE was going to come running to politely object.

No one fighting in hockey is out to injure another person. Evidence the other night in the Habs Leafs game. Parros was hurt, you could tell Colton wanted to immediately HELP his fellow hockey player, not punch him anymore.

Keep hockey hockey.


In those instances a fight would still happen, just when it was over McCarty would get a game misconduct. The fights that most people use to justify keeping it in the game would still happen. The game misconducts would get rid of enforcers though, who don't play more than 5 minutes a night and only fight other enforcers.


With the settlement that just happened in the NFL its inevitable that fighting will eventually be banned in Hockey. It doesn't matter how the players feel about it, if its going to cost the league hundreds of millions or even billions of dollars in settlements/legal judgements, the league will just make the decision for them.


As many have tried to explain earlier, fighting is NOT part of the game, that would be like arguing slashing, cross checking or hitting from behind is part of the game.
