#2484015 Official 2014 Olympic Hockey Thread (Admin warning #316)

Posted by Euro_Twins on 15 February 2014 - 08:29 AM

Yeah actually you did compare them by saying team USA has also not faced a medal contender (after I referred to Norway and Austria being lucky draws). Team Slovakia is much more respected and has a much better chance for a medal than either Norway or Austria. And it's not my fault that team USA hasn't played their 2nd game yet. The point is, Canada got very lucky with their first 2 draws, compared to team USA who already faced a respectable team and will face a Gold medal contender (and home country) team Russia for their 2nd game.

Apparently stating facts is "hating on the favorites." So so overly sensitive it's almost laughable. lol

Slovenia beat Slovakia.

It'll be interesting to see how the US fairs against an actual medal contender as well.  Seeing as they haven't played one either....lol
Also playing weaker teams off the start is not an advantage for a team like Canada.  If anything it's the opposite.  

Slovenia and Slovakia are gold medal contenders haven't you heard? Lol, Canada plays Finland Sunday, but I guess they don't count either.

Not if Weiss plays how we expected him to when we signed him.

While I agree with this, and I was a big supporter of the Weiss signing, there is a whole lot riding on him becoming who we signed him to be, but if z ends up on ltir, we can keep the kids up and roll 4 dangerous lines, with Weiss, helm, franzen Datsyuk, alfie, nyquist, tats sheahan, and jurco, we could be a force to be reckoned with, shame it has to be on z's back (no pun intended) though...

#2483784 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by Euro_Twins on 14 February 2014 - 06:59 AM

Then why are you here?  I DO care about the NHL season and the Red Wings.  I don't give a flying f*** about the Olympics.  I want the players who are being paid to play here to have their loyalties to the Red Wings.  "We" don't owe them anything. Zetterberg has the life and career he has because of the Red Wings, not because of Team Sweden.   Let's hope this puts an end to this ridiculous Olympics BS once and for all.

Right, and all three are likely missing time directly due to the Olympics.  All 3 played hurt when they shouldn't have, to try and be ready for Sochi.

I think Johan played in order to try and give z some rest, not for the Olympics

If this guy decides to play through this injury, and isn't 100% when it comes to playing for the Red Wings, we should fire him.

If we could fire someone Sammy would have been gone long ago lol

Considering Franzen's year as-a-whole, it's probably not terrible news for the team that he isn't skating.  As an individual it's awful he is still sidelined and I would never have wished it on him or anybody else.

I'm not sure what this means, but he had 23 points in 31 games so far this year, That's on pace for 61 points in a full season, and he was red hot when he was injured, so yes it is a loss.

#2483379 Wings go to Mexico

Posted by Euro_Twins on 11 February 2014 - 03:56 PM

RANDOM GUY: Damn, got not bottle opener.
MILLER: I'm pretty sure it's Miller time.
SMITH: I'm pretty sure we didn't even invite you to Mexico with us, Andrew.
MILLER: I'm pretty sure I'm our best PKer, Brandon. Plus, my adult-colored hair means you won't get carded. You being a kid and all.
ANDERSSON: YOUR SLUDGE HAMMER. Did I say it right? Sludge hammer?
RANDOM GUY, to BARTENDER: Please help me.
BARTENDER, aka Nick Lidstrom: Sorry, you're on your own from now on.
BARTENDER: I like it here in Sweden.
RANDOM GUY: This is Mexico!

This went from awesome to confusing. First of all, was nick even there? Secondly what beer were they actually drinking? Third and most importantly, where's Cleary?

I thought he was hurt.  Hopefully the Wings just put him on LTIR and be done with it.  When he says he's better, they look sternly at him and with a stiff upper lip say, "No, you're still hurt."

I know some people who could take care of his knee caps...

Ben Bishop showed why he deserves the Olympics over Howard. I can bet any money that he wasn't even 100% and he still kept his team in the game. We do not have a Stanley Cup goal tender.


I remember when everyone said that about ozzie...

Zetterberg pushed into Bishop, NHL network is showing the TB feed, saying he drove him.

Either way it was quite the dive by bishop

Glad to see the boys got it back.

I'm with you. Quincey is not so bad. For every mistake he makes he usually makes a really good defensive play too. He does take a lot of penalties and his offense has been a disappointment though.


for every bad play he makes he makes a good defensive play? ya, and for every good defensive play he makes, he also makes 2 mistakes, so that is a 3-1 ratio
