Couture has to be the ugliest hockey player to ever play

We look pretty decent so far, I think it is cause my new Datsyuk WC jersey is bringing us good luck :)




#2446779 Ouellet Debut Tonight

Posted by Euro_Twins on 21 October 2013 - 07:05 PM

 

I don't really understand why Ouellet has seen action in the preseason as well as tonight while Sproul and Almquist haven't.

 

Almquist has put his time in to at least warrant a look while Sproul is probably more of what we need in a defenceman.

 

Maybe they're showcasing him for a trade...I know, I know, probably not a popular idea.

 

For the record I like Ouellet but you've got to give up something to get something.

 

 

Almquist is not good defensively, Ouellet is

good smart play by DK




#2446571 Lines Thread

Posted by Euro_Twins on 20 October 2013 - 09:52 PM

I think the best lines with what we have would be:
 
Franzen-Datsyuk-Bert
Alfie-Zetterberg-Nyquist/Cleary
Tatar-Weiss-Cleary/Nyquist
Abby-Helm-Miller/Eaves
 
Holland should have got a legit top line winger in the offseason.  We already have two of the best centers in the league.  Dats and Z play better apart anyway.  I am still surprised that they think its a good idea to play them together.


I'm sorry but two things here.

1. There was no top line winger available, the best options were what we got.

2. Zetterberg is having the best start of his career and Datsyuk has been over a point per game, how exactly do they play better apart?

#2446027 10/19 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Coyotes 5

Posted by Euro_Twins on 19 October 2013 - 01:20 PM

In honour of my mother's birthday, I request a win.
In honour of my sister's birthday (yes, same day), I request that somewing get a hat trick.
In honour of Euro_Twins' birthday (no relation), I request that Bottle of Smoke get out of the arena sober enough to not accidentally pick up a Coyote and have to have us bail her out of jail.


Birthday win coming up. Beat the shot out of the yotes 5-1 wings. Cleary gets all 5
And gets an own goal. Double hatty :)


#2445950 Kronwall Injury Update

Posted by Euro_Twins on 18 October 2013 - 09:07 PM

I know this isn't going to be a popular thing to say, but it wasn't a dirty hit. if you watch the replay, what part of Mccloud's body hits kronwall's head? It was his thigh. kronwall's head went sideways into the boards. That is why his ear is cut up. Now it is physically impossible for those 2 things to be true in a hit from behind.
I understand the climate of sports today, and no one wants to see anyone get hurt. But players need to be more aware of where they are in todays game. Darren Elliott during the intermission break all but refused to call it a dirty hit, in fact he was far more focused on the other hit right behind the play on Glendenning.
Mickey Redmond talks about this all the time. Players put themselves in dangerous positions far to much and are not allowed to protect themselves anymore. a bi-product of far to many rules in todays game.
Now will McCloud get suspended? yes he will. it would have been a boarding call if Kronwall hadn't turned, so a dangerous play anyway.


I didn't read your whole post, didn't need to. Regardless if Kronner turned or not he was still getting hit from behind. Blindsided hits are dirty hits. McLeod saw the numbers the entire time and never let up


#2445908 McLeod suspended 5 games for hit on Kronwall

Posted by Euro_Twins on 18 October 2013 - 05:12 PM

Lapierre got 5 games for his hit.

When you listen to Shanny's explanation, you could almost swap it out for Mcleod's hit on Kronwall.

 

The only real difference is that Lapierre was suspended before for a similar hit.  If the league wants to be consistent at all (I know, I know), it seems like Mcleod will get fewer games.  I'd guess three.

 

Similar, but Lapierre hit him from behind, but not in the head, add a couple games for the head hit for sure




#2445889 McLeod suspended 5 games for hit on Kronwall

Posted by Euro_Twins on 18 October 2013 - 03:15 PM

My heart tells me that because it's Kronner, McLeod should get 400 games and a punch in the pants.

My head tells me that Kronner did change position, but McLeod had time to react to the change. I think 35 games is definitely fair, but I certainly won't weep with indignation if Shanny decides to give him more. No games and I will loudly proclaim bulls*** from the mountain tops.


I fixed your post, I agree 35 games is fair :P


#2445864 10/17 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Avalanche 2

Posted by Euro_Twins on 18 October 2013 - 01:06 PM

 
Don't think he had anything to do with that play in particular.  Lee Harvey Oswald killed Kennedy

 
Disagree here as well.  Thought Kindl played well for the most part and looked deft in our end.  Thought he stepped up when Kronner went down

AND ALSO, Mule did it all today. Finished shots, went down to block shots, finished checks... BRAVO.  
 
The hit on Kronner might have awaken the beast, but just looking at stats, through 8 games he has 5 points. 
 
If Mule finishes with 50 points this year, who is going upset?


Mule could get 100 points, and not score in the last game and everyone would be angry

Please keep alfie-pav-z together!

Pav posted a picture of them three on his Facebook today with the caption "Two kids and old goat is back" :P


If Datsyuk tells babs he wants to keep that line together, babs has no choice lol

Alfie is the man. He has what 9 assists and a goal in the first 8 games.


8 assists but yeah, I liked the signing from the get go, and it's kinda dumb all the armchair gms around here who instantly start saying how bad of a signing it was, I love watching them eat crow.

how much longer do we have to pretend that this guy doesn't suck?


Well I would say long enough for him to prove it. Shouldn't be long now. Why are you always so negative and condescending?


#2445770 Kronwall Injury Update

Posted by Euro_Twins on 18 October 2013 - 05:04 AM

I did like big rig giving McLeod the rock bottom after that hit though.

Here is my argument for the hot, McLeod followed Kronner from center ice see his numbers the entire time, and sure he might have turned late, but from where his head was McLeod was hitting him in the head regardless of Kronner moving or not.
