#2509942 Best Hits from the Playoff Streak

Posted by _SP_ on Today, 12:04 AM

With good reason.  Some of those looked mighty close to undercutting people, clipping knees, and there's no place in hockey for crushing someone into the boards when they're 4-6 feet away from the side- especially the bench.  That's asking for some serious head/neck/face injuries. Why don't we see them anymore?  Because we now know that hits like that lead to PERMANENT and DETERIORATING brain disorders.  

I get as pumped up as the next guy when I see a crushing hit, but you know what? That's not my brother/father/friend who, thirty years from now, will have a hard time writing his name or remembering mine because of hits like that.  




#2509950 ECQF - Series A - Bruins versus Red Wings

Posted by kipwinger on Today, 04:43 AM

Ladies and gentlemen, you heard it here first, two bold predictions for this series.  The Datsyuk and Bergeron lines cancel one another out thus freeing up the eventual reconstituted Legwand, Franzen, and Nyquist line and the Goose gets loose.  SECONDLY, and this is the big one...after taking some time to identify the mismatch and grow comfortable with it, Uncle Mike matches up the kid line against the Krejci, Iginla, Lucic line and the latter never get to another loose puck for the remainder of the series.  Speed kills.

 

Bonus Prediction:  Wings in five.  f*** you Boston.

#2509484 % chance of making the playoffs

Posted by FireCaptain on 14 April 2014 - 07:35 AM

aren't our chances 100% now? ;)


There's still a chance that we get bumped and Pittsburg gets a first round bye. It's called the "Crosby Exemption" and can be enacted by a call from Sidney to Gary on a special pink princess phone in Mario's basement. The exemption would cause Columbus to play the Bruins and the Wings to be instantly eliminated from contention.

#2509446 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by nawein on 13 April 2014 - 09:42 PM

There's several people who without any of them we would not be in the playoffs today. Nyquist, for all the reasons mentioned above. Z, for putting the team in his back until his back broke. Kronner, for driving the ship with a steady hands after Z went down. Gus, for somehow figuring out how to win games while Jimmy was terrible.

Entire season MVP for me is the guy who played the entire season and was honorary captain when Z went down. Kronwall. He really brought our d corps together and seemed to be a steadying influence for a lot of the kids. Without any of the guys listed above we wouldn't be where we are today, but Kronner was the most vital.


#2509454 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by rick zombo on 13 April 2014 - 11:01 PM

It's a 4 way tie for me between Bertuzzi, Cleary, Samuelsson, Weiss... without them we would never have seen Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Jurco.

 

Thank you gents for sucking so bad.

 

Great post!!!

 

For me:

 

1. Kronwall - One of the most under-rated Wings ever. Takes s*** because he’s not Lidstrom but there’s 0% chance we make the playoffs without him

2. Nyquist - No explanation needed

3. Monster - Really bailed us out when Jimmy was hurt/half-blind. 

 

I’d like to add though, that the Wings have always played a team game, but never like this year. Picking the MVP is almost moot.

Datsyuk is so humble.
