#2566713 1/29 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Lightning 5

Best team in the east will be a tough test would be happy with one point

 

Actually, right now The Wings and Isles are better. But if you say so........


 

High Praise from Jon Cooper

 

Joe Smith @TBTimes_JSmith 8m8 minutes ago

#TBLightning Cooper said the #RedWings are best team in the East. "Everything goes through them. They're the real deal."

 

 

Yeah, I'd rather be underestimated, tbh.

 

Although I doubt he really feels that way. Probably just trying to challenge his own team more than anything.




#2566595 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

In response to that first link: Mr Murray, maybe the reason it's so slow in trade land is because GMs like you are asking for the moon for a guy like Chris Stewart

 

In reponse to that second link: d'uh




#2566524 1/27 GDT : Red Wings 5 at Panthers 4

Have you watched the last 6 games? I'm loving the wins. Unfortunately they are not indicitive of our play lately. Can't keep getting 4 goals against and expect to win

 

I watch all the games. Typically, after a win, I’m happy. Regardless. I figured after the break that tonight’s game would resemble a game of pond hockey, and it did. What I take away is that they played well and got clutch goaltending late in the game, when it mattered. 

 

I was way more upset about blowing the lead last Tuesday.

 

That leaves four other games in this 6 game stretch, in which they held two good teams to 2 goals per, Buffalo to one,  and had crappy 1st period against Buffalo in another. 

 

Don’t worry, they’ll soon be losing games 2-1 in California. I’m happy to see them rack up the points now. 


and the sad thing is when Jimmy takes over again the goals against will go down but the goals for will too and he will get crucified like theres no tomorrow even though Mrazek has not been great in every one of these games his 5-0-0

 

He was great late in the game tonight. Because he’s clutch.

Detroit is playing leafs hockey the past couple weeks.

 

Funny. Their record says otherwise.

Apparently we can't kill any penalties when mrazek plays. Gotta save that

 

BUT, we can win shootouts   ;)

#2566065 LA puts Mike Richards on waivers

Posted by rick zombo on 26 January 2015 - 03:47 PM

 

If he goes to Edmonton, that would be the end of his partying days as we know it.  Not many pornstars parties up there.  

 

That's all they do in Northern Alberta. Young dudes blowing oil money on drugs and booze. But yeah, no pornstars.




#2565689 crazy hockey dad

Posted by rick zombo on 23 January 2015 - 12:11 PM

I think I'd give him the choice of either paying for the glass, or wearing a t-shirt that said "I'm a stupid douchebag" for an entire week.  Either one would be fine. 

 

Except he'll probably be given a Tim Horton's gift card + 24 of Molson Canadian from the other douchey hockey parents.




#2565434 The Maple Leafs finally put a quality product on the ice...

Posted by rick zombo on 21 January 2015 - 01:53 PM

Well, if you're going to pay $100+ to watch crappy hockey, might as well get something out of it.

 

That was pretty rad.




#2565393 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by rick zombo on 21 January 2015 - 10:49 AM

Yeah he is incredible overrated and I'm not sure if his overly aggressive style will work well in the playoffs or after other teams start figuring hin out. Kid got a few games played well for the most part but that's about it.

 

Again with this crap? Explain to me how numbers like 9-3-1, .914 and 2.44 makes a goalie over-rated. No wait, incredible overrated.




#2565390 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by rick zombo on 21 January 2015 - 10:46 AM

It seems to me that Mrazek is a rookie goalie that's only 22, about 8 years away from his prime, who is 9-3-2 with a .914 SV% and a 2.44 GAA. He may be inconsistent within a game or from game to game, but those numbers don't lie.




#2565374 2017 Winter Classic Red wings vs. Blue Jackets?

Posted by rick zombo on 21 January 2015 - 08:51 AM

Surprisingly enough, there has not. I'd like to see that.. I don't like either team at all but I love watching them face each other. I want Philly/Pitt to be a playoff matchup every year.

 

Same here. I'd love to see that WC match-up...........IN A STEEL CAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!




#2565370 What should we do with the Monster?

Posted by rick zombo on 21 January 2015 - 08:29 AM

As this recent rash of injuries has shown, you can never have too much goalie depth. Keep him and let him walk in July.

 

I imagine they'll try and ride a (hopefully healthy and fresh) Jimmy down the stretch, so I'd rather Mrazek go to GRs and play some games and try and help that team into the playoffs. Let Monster warm the bench.
