#2563323 1/15 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blues 2 (OT)

True. But they've also been a complete dissapointment in the playoffs the last few seasons.
 
There going to be tough to beat this evening. I'm just glad they didn't lose to Edmonton on Tuesday.


Ya. Cause unlike the wild they know how to bounce back after a loss


#2563202 Franzen on IR

go back to the franzen signs extension thread...not EVERYBODY was happy. Most, as a matter of fact, hated the term and a lot of us, me included, thought it was too high cap hit in order to make the team better.

 

most of that thread had a lot of people NOT liking something about it. Again, if you read entire posts instead of just looking for things that may support your opinion, you'd be a bit wiser.

 

You said he should be signed to a long term, Zetterberg like, contract.  If nothing else, that suggests a higher cap hit (since Zetterberg's cap hit is higher).  They did EXACTLY what you said should be done.  EXACTLY. 

 

Now you're against it huh?  Give me a break.  Your whole schtick is so phoney its surreal.

I don't know, didn't he insist he get a photograph with all his former assistants that are now head coaches at the draft this year? I think he's more sentimental then his stern demeanor portrays. Plus I think I heard him say Glendening was like the son he never had.

 

Awww, that makes this guy a saaaaaad panda.  It's his own fault though, you've got to compete harder and be an "everydayer" if you want to be Mike Babcock's son.  Lil' Michael Babcock just needs to steal somebody else's job that's all.

#2563160 TB's Paquette learns the hard way, don't start **** w Chara

Posted by kipwinger on 14 January 2015 - 12:56 PM

Thanks for posting this... The double standard of Bruins commentary is ridiculous. Nobody gives a s*** if Krejci lead the league in scoring in the playoffs TWICE, Jack. The game is getting chippy and I'm sorry, there's plenty of time for Krejci to just skate away instead of mucking it up with Brown. Same for Paquette with Chara.  ...but of course, that's totally deserved. 

 

"Writing checks" and "Spittin' chickets", eh, Jack... Brickley? 

 

Whatever. You two are the absolute worst.

The rest of their commentary throughout the rest of the game was despicable.

Once he realizes that he might get back on the ice... you can hear Edwards salivating at the prospect of JT Brown getting his comeuppance. 

He's the "hack", not Brown. 


 

No, it's most definitely waiverzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

 

I don't really have a problem with Edwards' homerism.  He's not a national announcer, there's no need for him to be unbiased. 

 

I do, however, have a problem with how blatantly, and non ironically, he panders to the lowest common denominator (read:  Bruins fans).  It's like he knows all the worst things about sports fans, and targets those things in the dumbest possible way.  Fans don't like refs?  He'll ***** about the officiating endlessly.  Goal waived off?  That's precisely the one that changed the course of hockey.  Don't like rats?  They're ruining the game (except the ones employed by the Bruins).  He specifically targets the dumbest, most ill formed, laziest, points of view, and then repeats them back at a higher volume. 

 

In short, if you like Jack Edward's act, or agree with the things he says, you're stupid.  And it's because you're stupid that he's saying those things.

I wish I was born a genetic mutant.

 

I would get all the women and I would dominate at the food trough.

 

I would also take liberties with other people in my profession, and have my team's jersey worn by frankgrimes while he pretends to watch Red Wings games. :glare:

Dude what are you talking about?  Boarding and gloved punches to little guys' faces are part of the game.  Always have been, always will be.  If you weren't on the soft, euro, pussified, nancy boy, bandwagon you'd realize Chara is just bringin' old time hockey back to the masses.

None of this would have happened if McGrattan hadn't been on waiveerrrrzzzz.

Honestly, I was surprised to read this, too. Babcock's not usually one for sentiment, at least where hockey is concerned.

Swinging the gloves is kind of Chara's thing now isn't it?

If I had a gun with two bullets, and I was in a room with Hitler, Bin Laden and Jack Edwards, I would shoot Jack Edwards twice.

Oh sweet, the biggest guy in the league boarded someone and hit another guy with a gloved fist.  What a tough dude he is.  Puke. 




#2562784 MLive : Howard out at least 2-4 weeks with "slight groin tear"

Posted by krsmith17 on 12 January 2015 - 10:57 PM

I know the difference between the AHL and the NHL is pretty significant for any position, especially for a goaltender. But McCollum has been playing great down in Grand Rapids so far this season, he actually has better numbers than Mrazek. I'm not saying McCollum would hold his own at the NHL level or even that he would play well, but some are acting like there's no chance and that he is doomed for failure. And why? Because he had a terrible outing 4 years ago in a blowout game against the Blues that they already had lost?... Give me a break. I hope McCollum gets a chance to start a game and gets the W, if for no other reason but to keep his confidence up with the Griffs, and of course to prove the naysayers wrong.....


#2562686 McGratton on waivers

Posted by Jesusberg on 12 January 2015 - 02:45 PM

 

Except Holland will never go after a Prust, Dorsett or Stewart because they fight.  He doesn't care if they score goals and contribute as leaders somehow.  If you fight, Holland and Babcock don't want you.  Look how they ran Tootoo out of town because he actually fought.  They want their 4th liners to be faceless jobbers who the fans don't care about.    

 

 

If he ever reads your post and runs into you in public (or private), this is the look you'd get.  Please choose your words carefully.

OK, well if you happen to talk to Brian anytime soon, here is a picture of Kip on vacation last summer. Tell him to swing first, and ask questions later.

#2562460 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by Echolalia on 11 January 2015 - 10:51 AM

Our goalie tandem has the worst groin against average in the league.


#2562452 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by Euro_Twins on 11 January 2015 - 08:52 AM

.....and get's hurt only hours after the announcement. That would have never happened to an elite goalie. Pretty average if you ask me.
 
 
 
In all seriousness : The nomination is well deserved, Jimmy kept us in many games and is one of the main reasons this team is in a playoff-spot. I hope that is injury looked more scary than it is and he recovers till the end of the month.


Ya his bad pass pulled groin sv% is s***.

Congrats average Jim!
