#2637868 11/18 GDT : Washington Capitals at Red Wings, 8:00 EST

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 18 November 2015 - 08:04 PM

 
Haha.  Well I'm drinking less these days so I try to find other things to do while I'm waiting.  But yeah, a few years ago I'd have already been at the bar for a couple hours lol. 


My recovery time isn't what it used to be, and I've been drinking less, so I'll be there sooner rather than later.

"Rivalry." Remember all these great games we had against the Caps over the last decades ?

Nope.


What did I miss the joke or something?
Oh yeah.
Rivalry night is just whatever they happened to buy the rights to.
Nbc can suck it.


#2637863 New NHL all-star game format

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 18 November 2015 - 08:00 PM

The words convoluted and utterly unnecessary come to mind.

Dude.
The all star game has become so boring lately.

And I don't see the winning team taking the money, so more than likely it will go to a charity.
None of this sounds like a bad idea at all.
If it doesn't work they can change it next season as quick as they did this season and nothing is harmed.

I don't watch All Star Games, so I don't have a strong opinion on what happens. I think what makes 3 on 3 so great, is that it's only 5 minutes. Any longer would be over kill.

Or, so exciting you piss your pants AND your friends pants.
and then never talk to those friends again, because you just pissed on them.
But it'll be exciting.

Did anyone else hear the conversation between the periods where the question was asked, "so what do you think if you're Erik karlsson and Dylan Larkin comes through and walks around you, not once but twice?"

And Osgood says, "well I'd say maybe I'll take the other side?"

#2636465 Surgery for Kyle Quincey

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 11 November 2015 - 02:26 PM

Marchenko's voodoo doll worked well.
 
I thought Q had ankle surgery in the offseason. Maybe they missed some of the bone fragments

He did.
Opposite ankle.


#2636004 Athanasiou recalled by Red Wings

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 08 November 2015 - 08:41 PM

I thought that AA played great too, but I think the Helm-Glen-Miller line wasn't really a demotion . They were matched against Stars top line and played respectable minutes. AA only played a team-low 9:36 (but made a lot of it) and Pulk and Andy only played a bit more because of special teams.
 
I thought that Helm had his 2nd good game since coming back. I would have prefered him with AA on that 3rd line

it was, IMO, his best game since coming back.
And when they play like that against the top line in the league, its definitely not a demotion in the normal sense of that. But if our line up was where it should be with the talent we have, helm would be destroying the talent like that normally.

So this is good.
Blashill sees what he has.
Holland realizes(slowly) that Todd nelson isn't good.

(Aside from the fact that Sproul has had a resurgence. So boom. Todd nelson, associate coach)

It's really a beautiful swater. I love the "throwback" neck. Both of the Winter Classic sweaters are pretty neat. Although Montreal really hit it out of the park...(insert a better hockey reference instead) 

Ha.
I honestly don't like the Colorado ones, and the Detroit ones would be worse if I wasnt obviously bias.

But the Montreal ones.
That gorgeous chest stripe is what gets me.
Bringing that same pattern to the sleeves ties it in super well and the old school off white is beautiful with them.
The wings 2013 winter classic jerseys are beautiful. These ones..

These ones.

I just keep seeing the turtle.


#2635993 Athanasiou recalled by Red Wings

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 08 November 2015 - 06:29 PM

Was he even on the 4th line? From what I saw Glendening, Helm and Miller were together. 

From what I saw, aa moved up and helm got demoted.

That's when you seen helm start to turn into a wrecking ball.
I wish i could find a gift, but helm coming back and stealing the puck in the offensive zone amid a flurry of his ice spray was a beautiful photo opportunity.

I want athanasiou to be developed properly, and I don't want him to be in the position Jurco is, but if he can push helm into being a better player then it will be worth keeping him here. His speed is too good to ruin him completely anyway.


He played awesome today.

I'm not mad at spezza for the knee on Howard.
He clearly didn't mean it, and tried to avoid it by lifting his leg, but it ended up making it worse.
Things like this happen, hockey is a really physical game, whatever.

But the refs not blowing the whistle after it isn't acceptable, or in any way defendable.


I'm upset with the way things went with hemskys hit, but I'm glad e hit him in the face a few times.
Whether or not people agree, people don't take liberties when he's on the ice without paying for it somehow. And when he backs off its smart because we end up with a pp out of it. I wish he played physical every game, but he truly doesn't deserve the flak that he gets around here.
