I'm not going to continue egging this on, but I've now had several posts deleted and one thread locked and I know I was not being offensive to anyone, or rude, or anything like that (well, except the one, ok so one out of several).   So if those are the kinds of threads that will get blocked or banned or whatever, well, I can only speak for myself then and say it's shame.  Mods feel they have a job to do, I won't make it any harder for them.  I just won't continue to post.  Thanks for clarifying your positions.

I agree it's so lame for them to delete harmless posts and then lock the thread.  Mods go a little too far "policing", it's not necessary, it takes so much away from this forum because it continually happens.  Just because a mod doesn't share the same sense of humor or even opinions doesn't mean everyone else feels the same.  And if a mod doesn't agree with a post they shouldn't engage in scrubbing the history like it's Soviet Russia then locking and threatening to ban everyone.  It's not like people are posting kiddie porn here...

In Topic: Coach's video challenge

So far I'm the only one who voted go to hell...


I don't even know what stance on the issue that is, I just couldn't help myself picking it. I guess I thought more would join me :confused:



Sometime there just needs to be an option to let the OP know how you really feel...

In Topic: Coach's video challenge

There wasn't enough conclusive evidence in the video yesterday to overturn the call. Was it a one handed love tap on the thigh? Did he put the stick on the leg and pry the lower hand outward? Inconclusive.

I don't think one challenge stoppage would ruin the flow of the game.


There was plenty of evidence, the video was very clear, Getzlafs stick was on Kronwalls hands (not his stick).  That's a penalty '99 out of 100 times' as Mickey stated.  Regardless of the fact that Kronwall tripped himself a bit, but when you take out the hands which is illegal, that has to be a penalty, and work the hands of a player like that it alters their balance (which could have been a factor in Kronwall tripping).


Watch the video again.




To me, reviewing penalties can drastically change the outcome of a game. See; Oct 11,2014. 


I also remember another game, not even sure if it was the wings; (pretty sure it was) but crosby took a high stick from one of his own teammates and was awarded a 4 minute powerplay for high sticking. It could also be used to review dives and see if there was actual contact with the stick between legs for trips and stuff. The game is played faster then any other sport, theres nothing wrong with slowing it down for a second to correct a mistake.


Does anyone remember this crazy goal from Kronwall? 




p.s. I give up trying to embed videos on this website...

In Topic: 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

08 October 2014 - 11:23 AM

I'm not fine with any professional hockey team that realistically plans to use all of Abdelkader, Helm, Miller, Glendening, and Andersson.  Nevermind Nestrasil, he'll be gone in a week or two. 


Three...maaaaaaybe four of those guys could play on my team.  But not all of them.  We've got mediocre talent eating up a lot of roster spots and minutes.  Until we don't, this team will stay mediocre. 


"But...but...but...Kip, Mike Babcock says Darren Helm and Justin Abdelkader are too good to be on the fourth line". 


So what?


Kris Draper won the Selke, scored more than either of them, and played on the fourth line for most of his career. 


Ice a real roster or lose games.  It's pretty simple. 



Good comparison regarding Meat Drapes on the 4th line.  The Wings do such a terrible disservice to their top line having a 'piano puller' on the top line.  Compare any other high caliber team and I cannot find a 3rd/4th liner playing on the top line.  To compare, go here: http://www2.dailyfaceoff.com/teams/


I hope to be proven wrong and he breaks out this year but that's just a dream.
