#2502595 They Call me...Tater Salad

Posted by DickieDunn on 28 March 2014 - 11:34 AM

My GF had neighbors like that.  Fortunately her apartment complex didn't put up with it very long.  3rd time they had the police there for a noise complaint, the kids were gone.

 

I understand having fun, but the kid needs to grow up a bit or get a nice house in the suburbs.




#2502551 Perspective

Posted by DickieDunn on 28 March 2014 - 07:25 AM

After 73 games:

 

Datsyuk has played 39 games.

Zetterberg has played 45 games.

Both have been out at the same time for a big chunk of time.

Every player projected to be even a semi-regular center has missed at least 12 games, Andersson is the only one who has played more than 45.

Miller, Quincey, and Kronwall are the only players to have played 70 or more games.

Tatar and Lashoff, along with the three above, are the only players to have missed fewer than 10 games.

Nyquist and Tatar are the two leading goal scorers.

They have dressed 30 skaters and have had 11 rookies dress.

 

If you had been told those facts at the beginning of the year, haw many games out of the playoffs would you think they'd be right now?  I would have figured close to the bottom of the division.  Instead, if the season ended today they would be in the playoffs.

 

I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty proud of what this team has accomplished, even if it's not what past teams have been able to do.




#2500555 Pens Twitter Fail:Ask Neal Anything...

Posted by DickieDunn on 24 March 2014 - 08:11 PM

Funny true, but how many here wouldn't love to have a 27 year old forward that is 6-2/210 and over the past three seasons averages .50 goals per game? Give me 4 guys just like him! The NHL lets him play like that and it clearly works. may not like his style, but it is effective.

 

I would love a big goal scoring power forward, but not if he was a cheap shotting dirtbag like Neal.

that's fantastic




#2500400 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by DickieDunn on 24 March 2014 - 12:41 PM

If he really is worried about his partner when not paired with Kronwall, that's an issue that needs to be addressed, not bandaged by keeping him with Kronwall.


#2498903 3/22 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Wild 2

Where I come from, what Quincey did was good defense, not interference.  Too many rules are ruining the game.




#2498814 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Smith is far better offensively. He also tries to push the play more which is where the turnovers come from, not inaccurate passes.

It's not like he's not wearing a cup.

 

 

Still hurts.  Trust me, I know from experience.

Normally I don't advocate nailing another dude in the pills, but Malkin deserves it.

Neal is such a ******.  Someone needs to beat his ass.

Weren't there people saying Nyquist wasn't that special not too long ago?




#2497484 Kassian on the way out of Van?

Kassian is a meathead. Do not want.


#2497395 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Weber and Rinne are the faces of the team.


#2494957 Red Wings have Recalled Pulkkinen from Grand Rapids

Posted by DickieDunn on 13 March 2014 - 09:50 AM

 
Why?

I think Jurco has a lot of talent but I see him more as a 3rd liner. Teemu has the scoring ability to be a top 6 forward. Of course this is speculation and my opinion after seeing both Jurco and Teemu play in GR


Jurco is bigger faster and other than his shot he has better hand than Pulk. I don't see him as a 3rd liner.


#2494899 Griffins Evaluation Thus Far

Posted by DickieDunn on 12 March 2014 - 07:44 PM

The Grifs are pretty good.  They're currently sitting just out of the wild card spot in the NHL playoffs.
