#2579259 3/6 GDT : Flames 5 at Red Wings 2

Posted by Jesusberg on 06 March 2015 - 01:37 PM

I think Jurco's issue is that he's going to try to do too much on that line, because he wants to stay up there. Ironically, if he just plays a simple game, there's a much better chance he'll work himself into a top-six (more likely top-nine) role. His skill will take over if he keeps it simple.

My guess is the team will look much better tonight. I doubt they'll start strong, but I see them taking over in the 2nd and 3rd periods.

Which Pred just whacked Gus with his stick as he skated around the net?

Bit of a surprise but I agree the price was too steep for what he'd bring to the Wings, and I concur it would have been even steeper for the Wings. He's a good fit for the Preda, though. Looks like they're planning to make a serious run in the postseason.
Overall, the Leafs got fleeced, though. If that continues, after their fire sale, it could be really ugly for the white and blue.

Would of been a 1st and pulkkinen I'm guessing

My guess is Jeff Petry

Ya depending the price could be but im sure other teams will target petry as well now which will really rise up the asking price

Here's an interesting tidbit I just ran across in a Khan article about Nestrasil...


"[Nestrasil] would have been buried further down the depth chart once Pavel Datsyuk and Weiss return from injuries and after the club promotes top prospect Anthony Mantha, which it will likely do if he produces in the AHL the next few weeks."


The bolded part is interesting because until very recently Khan had repeatedly taken the stance that as a result of his injury (and lost training camp), it would be unlikely that Mantha would crack Detroit's roster this season.  This sounds almost definitive.  As in, someone told Khan (off the record) that he'll be promoted if he plays well out of the game.  Usually Khan's good about acknowledging when he's speculating.  That doesn't seem to be the case here.

Ha! I wasn't sure if there was a big demand for these anymore. It is getting a bit harder to produce them in a wide variety of screen resolutions, so if I go ahead with them I may trim them down.


Now I could use Analytics data to get an idea on the general needs, but what resolution(s) do you guys primarily use?

The most shocking thing is that we have played half a game and Marchand hasn't acted like an ass yet.

#2538641 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

One of the dumbest things I've ever read:



Detroit finished 16th last season in both goals-for per-game (2.65) and total goals scored (217)

I'll just leave this here. Apparently Smith will be a risk free player this year... According to Smith.




"I have it on good authority that Brendan Smith's game will be risk free this year.  And that he's the best yahtzee player on the team.  Oh, and he makes a mean lasagna.  And he once beat a polar bear in a dance-off.  Oooh, ooh, and he's as handsome as a young Richard Gere" -Brendan Smith

Posted by kipwinger on 16 April 2014 - 01:18 PM

Ansar Khan and Brenden Savage both picked Boston.  I'm currently making them rue the day by utilizing the comments of my arrogantly ignorant Mlive character "TheGlistening" to baffle, confuse, and idiotically insult them.  In past exchanges I've accused them of being the "liberal media" for reporting Red Wings loses, as well as attempted to arrange a Khan v. Albom celebrity boxing match for a charity of TheGlistening's choice.  In that case it was a fundraiser to support my character's made up dance troupe "The Tri-City Manikins" located in Saginaw, MI. 


Don't ever be a Michigan sports writer and pick the opposition on my watch.

Bad call. The penalty was committed after the shot was taken. That should be a good goal.


Under technicality, yes, it should have been a goal.  However, the spirit of the rules is that you can't interfere with them.  Imagine if there was a Blues player hacking away at Jimmy every time they released a slapper.


It sucks, but I think the ref made a good call.
