Y'all some sexist dudes. Almost every hockey fight looks as ridiculous as this.

Uh, no it doesn't.

#2464137 The Nyquist/Tatar Thread

Posted by RedWang on 13 December 2013 - 08:31 PM

GUYS, GUYS! I just met Tomas Tatar in downtown royal oak. My girlfriend n I were walking and we walked by him and a buddy speaking slovakian to each other. I called out his name n was like o s*** its you, lemme shake your hand. I shook his hand n told him hes been playin great lately and to keep scoring. He smile a huge smile and thanked me and intoduced himself and his buddy. Seemed genuinely appreciative of my compliments. Nice guy. Night made!

#2464000 Kindl

Posted by kipwinger on 13 December 2013 - 09:18 AM

I agree he's not as good as last year, but when you've already got that opinion of a guy you're looking for every little thing he does wrong.  And when it's a third pairing defenseman, there's a lot of ammo. 


Example:  It was either last game, or two games ago that Datsyuk got completely undressed along the goal line for a goal.  Not a single mention of it in the GDT.  Why?  It doesn't happen often, and nobody scrutinizes Datsyuk.  It's easier to keep banging away on something Kindl or Quincey does. 


Another Example:  Mr. streaky and inconsistent Johan Franzen had shorter goal scoring droughts last year than Datsyuk or Zetterberg.  Any mention at the time of them disappearing from the score sheet?  Nope.  Franzen gets that title hung from his neck.  Why?  Because he's already got the inconsistent tag.


In conclusion, Kindl isn't very good defensively.  He's not supposed to be.  He's a third pairing guy who's an offensive d-man and is on track to score around 30 pts. this year.  He's doing his job.  We're not losing games because of Kindl.

#2462429 Shawn Thornton attacks Orpik (leaves game on stretcher)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 December 2013 - 11:46 PM

Thanks for the info :thumbup:


Now - I'd like to ask the LGW community here what their thoughts are on this...I can understand how many loathe what Thornton did to Orpik - however our very own McCarty jumped an unsuspecting Lemieux back in 1997...After learning more about Orpik's tendency of borderline hits, and not answering the bell (although I think we can all agree Lemieux was far more despicable) - do some here find what McCarty did as 'acceptable', or was it a cheap shot along the same level of what we saw with Thornton?


Like I said earlier, the result makes everything look worse.  Think Bertuzzi on Moore.  


If McCarty beat Lemieux into a stretcher with those punches (which I'm sure he wouldn't have minded doing), the entire situation would be looked upon differently.  Instead of seeing it as a great hockey memory, a lot of people would see it as another instance of hockey brutality with a tragic result.  


Also, remember Weber ramming Zetterberg's head in the glass.  If Zetterberg was taken away on a stretcher, I can see Weber getting 10 games out of that. Instead, he got s***.


Here, we have gloved punches which seriously hurt a player.  We see gloved punches all the time that don't do nearly as much damage, if at all.  I do think Thornton should be suspended, but this incident wouldn't even be on the news if Orpik didn't get hurt so badly.

#RedWings have sent Luke Glendening back to minors, so Tomas Tatar will be in lineup vs. Capitals.

#2453459 What Did Pierre McGuire Want from Henrik Zetterberg?

Personally, I think Pierre let out a really, really wicked fart. Or he flat-out crapped his pants.

#2452817 Jimmy Howard And Monster On Punishing Goalies For Instigating Fights

Posted by Euro_Twins on 11 November 2013 - 08:28 PM

It should be treated like a regular fight, if both parties are willing participants and it is a good clean fight, 5 minute major, and it's over. If it is like what emery or others have done, it should be an automatic  suspension, minumum 5 games. Holtby did nothing to deserve what he got, and emery is a thug who has no real hockey skills

#2452016 11/7 GDT: Stars 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 07 November 2013 - 10:32 PM

Congrats to the Dallas Nills, who according to the refs played the cleanest game in the history of forever and all time!

I reward you with a giant middle finger! Use it to passionately penetrate each other's anuses, please. YAY!

#2451747 The Metropolitan Division Is Terrible

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 07 November 2013 - 08:24 PM

When all the teams in the Metro div suck ass, they will get the 1st to 5th picks in the draft for a few years and start s*** kicking the Penguins just like the Pens have been doing to them after a decade of tanking to get to where they are now.  Unless those teams draft like Edmonton  :lol:

#2451357 Tootoo Waived

Posted by Mike J. on 06 November 2013 - 01:15 PM

I really hate this move. Pisses me off that Cleary and Sammy get a free pass, while they offer nothing to the team. Toots plays his ass off every second he gets. Cleary is #1 in the league at falling on his ass, and Sammy is just sitting on the bench counting his money. I don't understand this decision at all.

#2451259 Mantha signed to ELC

Posted by Euro_Twins on 05 November 2013 - 07:59 PM

That would be better and I wish he could be playing in the AHL right now as well, but I don't think his progress is being hampered too much. He still had to improve on his competitive pace and so far he's answering that well. Now he just has to keep it up until the season's over and bring it over into the AHL for the remainder of that season. Now if he was stuck in the Q for another season, then yes I think that'd be a waste.

Probably for the best anyway. The griffins would be over the 50 man limit with him, and I would absolutely hate to see a guy like nyquist have to go to the nhl so a top prospect can join the ahl...
