#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

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.

Good try miller, defend yourself


#2445171 3 in a row.... I'll take it!

I agree, but you could just as easily say 4th or 10th, doesn't really matter.  The average ages are so tight across the league that it's pretty hard to argue that one team is "old" and therefore disadvantaged, while another is "young" and therefore has a leg up.  Not that you were making that argument, but others have.

 

exactly, would you rather have a 26 year old or a 27 year old player... it's not much different

LGW!!!!
Hand the Avs there first loss.
I don't think Roy will go crazy tonight, he knows Babcock could clean the ice with him.
$10 on Babs if there is a showdown.


Ozzie will fight if there is a showdown

I almost feel bad for him, until I realize that if it was someone else this happened to that he was the cause of, he wouldn't care, he would probably laugh and say good.


#2445055 Any new Helm Updates?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 16 October 2013 - 08:14 PM

If the Wings win the Cup, they'd better add your name to it.  You just stacked up enough positive kharma by being good to your woman that not only will Helm be back, but he'll stay back.


Ahhh stop jinxing helms back


#2444978 % Chance that Monster can Survive B2B Games?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 16 October 2013 - 11:30 AM

 
nice straw man. i dont think i've ever seen someone on lgw advocae for 15 minutes for the 4th line. most people feel its reasonable to see the 4th line get close to 10 minutes and not just 7 like tootoo does. sure he doesn't play on the pk like his linemates, but sometimes after a special teams shift, you put a broken line out there to get fresh guys on. its not like we would be inventing some brand new concept.
 
on topic: those 2 games were huge for gustavsson. it should help his confidence immensely. also, it will hopefully convince babcock that he can actually sit jimmy once in a while. even though it was the first wek of the season, it was already unfortunate that the first back to bak we had howard started both games. if they genuinely dont want to overuse howard, they have to start early and give him nights off. in their first chance of the season they didn't do that. i am hoping that these good performances will give them confidence to make the better long term decisions going forward. (and yes i know it was only 1 situation and its a long season. its not over reaction, its just evaluating what we have seen thus far)


Well I was obviously being a tad facetious but my point was still valid. Unless we have a penalty free game on both sides of the ice you won't see him get 10 minutes
