Smith. For the win.

 

 




#2460232 The Niklas Kronwall Appreciation Thread

Posted by rick zombo on 02 December 2013 - 07:41 PM

For a team that's struggled a bit 5-on-5, and for a guy that matches up vs top lines night in and night out, that +12 rating is impressive.

He's sniffing Norris finalist type numbers right now.

I can't imagine any hockey scenario that would see Kronwall having any chance of hitting Cowan.

They're both defensemen. Unless Cowan (who skates like Hal Gill) leads a rush up the boards and gets met by Kronwall, or Kronwall pinches deep behind the goal-line to take a run at Cowan? Never happen.

From 7th place to 3rd place ... quite a hop.  Good streak going, let's keep it going boys. 

 

Datsyuk was obviously dragging this team down.  :lol:

HOLY f***. What a shift by Tatar.

Cowen punches Nyquist in the head twice that last shift. Must have been reflex punches.

Glad we got a lead, but for the love of god, the Sens are getting away with a clear penalty shift after shift.

 

That’s because the league feels bad for suspending Cowen for 10 games for that head-shot to Datsyuk…………oh wait, nevermind.

Ottawa has a very physical D. Having trouble cycling down low. 

 

Also, I guess Ottawa didn’t commit even one penalty-worthy offence that period? Nah.

How do you pronounce... that?

 

Like LaFrog. Except Roy.

I'm thankful the Wings made my driving 25 miles one way to pick up a fresh bottle of the Macallan even more worthwhile. BoS, do you find a good game by the Wings improves the taste of a fine scotch?

 

Make it Laphroaig, Lagavulin, or Talisker, and I’m with you  ;)

Remember when we were awesome and we'd win like 8 in a row then get blown out by some s***ty team like the Islanders? WE'RE THAT TEAM!

 

Not quite, but LOL just the same.

Good job the Smith’s aren’t American. Tomorrow’s turkey dinner would be awwwwwkwarrrd.

Man. I’m starting to love me some Smith. The game he got hurt = fight.  Then he fights Neil. Now he gives it to the Rat and mixes it up with Chara.

 

*Thumbs up*




#2458498 Looking for advice/attending a Wings home game

Posted by rick zombo on 27 November 2013 - 11:46 AM

 I almost forgot to tell you...there is no pair of ear plugs in the world that can drown out Karen Newman's caterwauling.  Be warned.  I'm honestly surprised the ASPCA hasn't got her for animal cruelty when she "sings".  As my housemate says, she must have incriminating photos of someone.

 

Okay, I performed my public service for today.

 

My dad is 67 years old, and he has a massive crush on Karen. Seeing her live will be a thrill for him. LOL

 

She has gone down hill IMO. Love is blind, I guess :)
