Okay, you can be fine and accept giving up on a play.  I won't.  It's actually embarrassing as this is something I hear bantam coaches "ranting" about consistently.


It's a moot point because Mrazek didn't give up on the play.

Watching the replay, he played the initial shot well. It was a three on two and the puck carrier had a lot of room to work. Mrazek came out to play the angle.

Unfortunately the shot hit him and it sounds like it caught part of his mask, and rebounded right back to Raymond. Instead of retreating to his net Mrazek is overly aggressive and chases Raymond beyond his own post.

It was a bad play on his part, but he was great the rest of the game. The idea that a goalie would give up on a play leaving a wide open net is absurd.

I feel like they could have gotten more for Richards at the time. Maybe not.

 

Weren't both players traded because they like to do this too much?richards-carter-party-1.jpg

 

That's the rumor.  Although, they haven't sniffed success since these guys left so maybe having a couple juvenile, alcoholic, ***** hounds on the team wasn't such a bad thing after all.

 

I mean...it seems to work for Patrick Kane.

I'd be OK with keeping Tatar, Datsyuk , and Helm together and giving Teemu a big center to play with. 

 

Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkader

Tatar - Datsyuk - Helm

Weiss- Sheahan - Pulkkinen

Miller - Glendening - Cleary

 

Weiss and Sheahan both like going to the net and they are excellent passers in tight. I could see Pulkinnen getting some room to shot.

 

Yeah, I like these a little better.  Both Weiss and Sheahan should be able to find Pulkkinen in the open. 

 

An aside...does anyone else laugh at the thought of Doc Emrick saying "driiiiiiiiiiiive" every time Pulkkinen shoots?  If Pulkkinen cranks a really hard slapper I think Doc's head will explode.

Ha. Thd 2nd one is the source of that great collection of Kesler dive gifs.

http://vansunsportsb...umbleweed-gifs/

That's why I referred to him as Tumbleweed in an earlier post.


This is one of my favorite memes of all time. And I've been on the internet a loooong time.

Not happy about the diving direction of this team either. I don't give a s*** if other teams do it. We're not other teams, and it's a punk ass move. Get an advantage because you're better, not because you're flopping around like a pansy.

17-14 shots

Are the Flames really that disciplined? 

 

Well, they don't have Jiri "muscles" Hudler tonight.

Harold, aren't you a Kings fan sort of? What's your opinion of their captain?

 

Love-hate.  

 

Good player.  Wish he didn't dive, especially given the C on his sweater. I haven't noticed him doing it as much as in years past, but someone who draws as many penalties as he does definitely embellishes.  And he's had some questionable hits.  I don't think he's hunting knees per se but he's following through on some hits that he should've bailed on. 

 

But he's also a gutsy player who has a ton of heart.  Hits hard, works hard, and can chip in some goals. 

 

Truth be told I think Kopitar should be the captain but that may just be that he's more in the mold of the Red Wings captains.

You sure you're a Wings fan? :lol:


Lol Ya, my thoughts exactly. Wings lose, complain, wings win, complain more. That's what a true wings fan does.

Quincy goal was great. Wings should have won and did. No complaints really. Just win baby.

Hey. What did you think of that play where Quincey wasn’t trying to not lose?  :w00t:

 

Yeah, they did a bang up job tonight by only barely "not losing" to the worst team in history.  The Oilers are only slightly better than District 5, sans Gordon Bombay AND Adam Banks.
