#2605312 ECSF : (4) Washington Capitals vs. (1) New York Rangers

Posted by rick zombo on 01 May 2015 - 11:05 AM

 

My favorite part of the series was when the Islanders picked a fight with him, ostensibly to "deter" him from running over any more of their defensemen.  Which resulted in this...after which he continued running over their entire team. 

 

Note to hockey teams:  It's kinda counter productive to "send a message" by getting manhandled in a fight you started. 

 

 

Kid's a maniac. I hope Washington advance just so I can see him destroy a few Lightning or Habs players.

It's like trying to pick which one of my balls I want crushed by a maul.

 

Go Caps!!!!!!!




#2605232 Sigh, having a relapse of irritation

Painful.

Basically the reason why you try, as a team, to not go to game 7.


#2605212 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by rick zombo on 30 April 2015 - 10:23 PM

Jarnkrok - constantly compared to Zetterberg

Zetterberg was a rookie of the year finalist. Jarnkrok spent his rookie season as third/fourth line plug. They compare Larkin to Toews. I think comparisons in these cases are used to explain a players style, rather than their ceiling

Backman - at one point the highest rated defensive prospect we had
 
Bad attitude. Like Ryno and Dick Axelsson. We know how they panned out.

Janmark - one of the best young players in the SEL

I believe that's actually Axel Holmstrom. His development made Janmark disposable.
 
But sure, pretend like they were scrubs who were never "overvalued prospects". I think most anyone who seriously follows the team will see through that.
 
People are still mad about giving up each one of them lol

Ya let's trade away larkin mantha athanasiou holmstrom bertuzzi for guys who will be ufa's in 3 years and then complain were the new leafs

 

No  s***  eh? Some people.


Then let's stop losing in the first round.

 

 

 

Genius.  That's basically what I meant. I'll spell it out: "I suppose what I really want for next season is to not lose in the first round"




#2605079 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by rick zombo on 30 April 2015 - 02:17 PM

Who says the Wings even want Babcock back? This could be fact, and needs to be a bigger part of this "will he/won't he" discussion.

Remember back in March when there was "no goalie controversy" :lol:

I suppose what I really want for next season is for threads like this to NOT pop up after the first round.




#2604998 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Posted by rick zombo on 30 April 2015 - 12:04 PM

Just watched the post-game interview with Babcock, it's up on NHL.  

 

Classic:

"They went to church and we missed mass."  

 

Somebody should have asked: "Moving forward, how do you see the goalie situation playing itself out next year?"   

 

To which he'd respond "I plan on playing Fleury and Greiss about 60/40 respectively".




#2604971 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by rick zombo on 30 April 2015 - 11:01 AM

 

If Babs doesn't coach the Wings next year, I hope he stays in the East so that I can watch Blashill beat him all season long with his old roster. 

 

:lol:  Awesome.




#2604918 Who is the coach next season?

Posted by rick zombo on 30 April 2015 - 09:00 AM

What are the chances the Pens fire their coach and get Babcock?  

That's what I think will happen.

I feel like I don't even know you anymore


Let go of the West. Give up the past. Come, join me in my loathing of the Eastern Conference.

Did you really just say you'd rather the Blackhawks win the Cup??
 
I can't even look at you right now...

Agreed rick I think you need to take a moment to reevaluate your life choices right now.

I can't help it. I hate the teams in our division more now than I hate old rivals. The Hawks shouldn't adversely affect any Wings fans now any more than Tampa does.

We just lost to Tampa and that makes me f****** hate them. I think that's a legit way of feeling/seeing things.


#2604780 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by rick zombo on 29 April 2015 - 11:21 PM

What's most unfortunate about Holland is that he squandered his opportunity to lure in talent with relatively young superstars. He should've begun retooling when we were at the top of our game in 2009-2010. He had opportunities, and a much more attractive roster to lure guys in with. It's hard to blame him for the last few years struggles when you look just at those years, but he could've set himself up with a much more favorable hand if he'd been more aggressive five years ago. The writing was on the wall with the defense then, but nothing was done.
 
Everything that's happened since is mostly a result of a couple of years of getting caught really flat-footed.


Holland's balls were in a vice because of the cap in 09-10. He lost Hossa, Hudler, and Samuelsson. He wasn't in a position to lure anyone.

He could have traded Filpulla + Franzen for a young blue chip D-man and re-signed Hossa.

And Jakub Kindl! 

 

I'm telling you, he's going to be a monster tonight.  I can feel it. 

 

If he is, and the Wings win, I'll buy his jersey. Even if it has an Oilers logo on the front.
