#2512565 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Bruins 4 - Series tied 1-1

Posted by rick zombo on 20 April 2014 - 04:17 PM

 

No it's not.

 

Chiarelli has done a great job building a team.  Holland did a good job sustaining an already immensely successful machine.  I think Chiarelli is a better GM in today's NHL than Holland is.  Kenny could learn a lot from Chiarelli on how to make good trades and free agent moves.  

 

Chiarelli wouldn't have brought back a Samuelsson or trade a first for Quincey.   

 

Yes it was. It was totally reactionary, over the top, and it made you look fickle. Like "OMFG we’re losing game 2 after winning game 1 so now our GM sucks and I wish we had a team like Boston!!!!!!"

 

Meanwhile everyone else in the league has, at one time or another wished they had a team like Detroit. Including Boston fans after game 1.

Having the series tied against such a good team is a good thing. I didn't expect the Wings to win but for sure to put up a fight can't ask for more. Boston is by far the best team in the East again

 

By winning game 1 we stole home ice advantage. That’s at least a positive thing.

As much as I want to retaliate the wings need to calm down and not get physical. We cant beat them physically.

 

Exactly. I was a s frustrated by that period as much as anyone - I even got a mod warning  :w00t:

 

But we the fans need to calm down and the Wings most certainly have to get re-focused and not engage.

We’ve fallen into the Bruins trap 100%.

 

Babcock’s got his work cut out for him.

Nice dive by Chara.

Zero chance he’ll get suspended. 

 

But he should, and what you’re saying about tone is 100% true.

That should curb-stomp any lingering “Olympic Animosity” people have towards Datsyuk.

I love the meme starting to build on message boards and some bloggers in Boston: "It sure would be nice to get our injured guys back. That cost us"

 

YOU want injured guys back?

That’s one of the funniest gifs I’ve ever seen.

The thing about Glendenning: his body seems to be an extension of Babcock's brain.

 

So basically, Luke does everything Babcock asks him to do. That why coach loves him. (compared to Tootoo, who Babcock had no control over, and didn't like as a player, at all)

 

Babcock will tell him to play on the edge but not to cross any lines, and that's exactly what Glendenning will do. No worries.

I wonder how many of those hits were suspensions in today's NHL?

#2509454 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by rick zombo on 13 April 2014 - 11:01 PM

It's a 4 way tie for me between Bertuzzi, Cleary, Samuelsson, Weiss... without them we would never have seen Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Jurco.

 

Thank you gents for sucking so bad.

 

Great post!!!

 

For me:

 

1. Kronwall - One of the most under-rated Wings ever. Takes s*** because he’s not Lidstrom but there’s 0% chance we make the playoffs without him

2. Nyquist - No explanation needed

3. Monster - Really bailed us out when Jimmy was hurt/half-blind. 

 

I’d like to add though, that the Wings have always played a team game, but never like this year. Picking the MVP is almost moot.
