We are becoming the Devils regarding the shootout.

As positive as Germans can be.

Singling out Franzen is as stupid as it gets right now. The whole team, with the notable exception of our goalies, sucks right now. Sure, Franzen should bring more to the table but Nyquist, Zetterberg, Tatar, Smith etc. (you name them) should do too.

And we all know Mule floats some time of the year. Every player does from time to time except the super stars. Nothing unusual here, especially if you take his caphit into account.

Well I told you guys the Wings would lose. Don't expect much from this team. This team is sorry, it's not just a losing streak. Well anyway, you guys all have a great night.

Martin and Clutterbuck are each an entire teams checking line alone. Tavares is Tavares. And just like us a lot of their youngens have stepped up.

 

Not to forget their much improved goaltending.

We look like we're playing the '82 Islanders.  

 

To be fair the Islanders are a strong team this season. They are not the trainwreck they once were.

4-4 here second intermission. I did have a dram of Macallan 18 comped to me by the restaurant owner (I''ve been a regular for 5 years). What's the quick recap?

 

First period was so-so, nice goal from Z and a somewhat unlucky goal against us. Islanders coming strong in the second but Mrazek with a few great saves. Howard out with an injury (precautionary). And before I forget : Happy birthday Scott.




#2557566 Are the Wings a Contender?

I'll wait with the Bush-picture for after we won the Cup or Connor McDavid, whatever happens first. ;)

#2557539 KHL Struggling Financially

Posted by derblaueClaus on 18 December 2014 - 04:16 PM

With inflation running high as hell there won't be much profit from other sources like Ad-Revenue tickets or merchandise either. Who buys tickets to a hockeygame when you are struggling paying for basic things like rent and food ?

THIS GUY - the announcer on hockey night in canada just called datsyuk and bozak as two of the game's top stars - one of these is not like the other...


I love Gus but the guy needs to put on like 10lbs of muscle this offseason. He looks like the equivalent of Toad in mario kart out there getting pushed around like nothing. 

 

Whatever this guy is smoking I need some of it.

#2555885 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Posted by derblaueClaus on 11 December 2014 - 07:39 PM

Am I the only one who thinks that a.) the sample size is much to small to have reliable stats and b.) that shootouts are more or less coin flips and therefore the whole discussion about how Howard or the team sucks in shootouts is pretty much pointless ?

#2555884 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by derblaueClaus on 11 December 2014 - 07:33 PM

I don't own a katana.

 

No problem. Has the honorable Samurai you are you kill yourself with the Wakizashi of course. 

 

Nothing new on the Babcock front then. We'll have to wait and see till spring it seems.
