#2564106 1/17 GDT : Predators 2 at Red Wings 5

Not the first liner up and coming Steve yzerman Sergei federov he was made out to be

 

Good third line 2-way energy guy. Maybe, maybe, a 2nd liner at some point. But he looks to be about 1/2 as good as Sheahan. 


Pulkinnen dumped. No call. Because it’s 5-2 Detroit. I just wish a penalty was a penalty.

As bad as he is defensively, watch him pass. Ugh.

 

Strangely enough, for a guy who was drafted as an offensive d-man who had issues defensively, I find his defensive play has come a long way. It’s his offence which seems to be regressing. But that’s because Babcock had him neutered 2 years ago.

Brendan smith isf****** terrible. Is anyone watching this knucklehead?

 

 

Rough shift for Smith. 

 

Obviously I noticed.

 

He has his moments for sure. But it’s a little sad to watch a 21 year old rookie out there trying to clean up after him.

Bout time for Neal to get all slashy and douchey.

They have 1 more point than us.  We're 1-7 in the skills competetion.  If they're a powerhouse, what does that make us?

 

Yeah, but, you know, they're big and have some Canadians on the team or something.

#2563749 "Subtle Interference"

Posted by rick zombo on 16 January 2015 - 10:42 AM

How about "subtle crosschecks and slashes"?

 

There was a sequence last night along the boards in the St Louis end where Reaves and Jackman took turns crosschecking Glendenning in the back and the ribs as he battled for the puck. I counted 9.

 

Watch the extended highlights of the Tatar goal and see how many times Shattenkirk slashes and crosschecks Sheahan as the play develops. (Riley's glove doesn't just fall off on it's own)

 

So basically  f*** Pang and company and  f*** Olczyk

Not to be too cocky because that was a tight one, but it’s always sweet when the opponents genius strategy of “run them, hit them, whack them, cross check them and we’ll beat them because they’re all scared and from Sweeden” doesn’t work out the way they planned. 

 

Edit to add: Rangers + Panthers + Habs all lost tonight, and Leafs are down 2-1 to SJ. Great great night to get two points.

I love how Joack(off)man and Reaves can get 12 free crosschecks in on Glendening and how it’s open season for Slashing Datsyuk, yet Tatar got a  penalty for that weak-ass s***. 




#2563362 Could the Wings be better off trading Pav & Hank for draft picks?

Posted by rick zombo on 15 January 2015 - 03:41 PM

Honestly, if you asked me, I think all this team really needs to have a legitimate shot is consistency in terms of offence and a slight upgrade on the back end (personally I'd be happy if they made Ouellet full time and shipped Kindl). 

 

Jimmy is back in top form, the D has been extremely solid and our special teams are among the best in the league. What's not to like?

 

This thread?

We have no chance of winning the Cup




#2563340 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by rick zombo on 15 January 2015 - 01:59 PM

So who will be representing the Red Wings?

 

Maybe since Fleury's replacing Howard, they'll replace Crosby with Zetterberg :ninja:

Let's go wings...
I really hope they come out and play hard tonight, I feel like this might be one of those measuring stick type games.

 

*sigh*

 

I remember when the Wings used to be the measuring stick.

I'm not going to personally attack anyone.  Or even allude to it. 

 

What I will say is, there are plenty of dips***s holding the "Boston point of view", and it's because of people like them that Jack Edwards calls games the way he does.  If fans held themselves, and their home announcing teams to a higher standard, then Jack Edwards would be in Southie, drinking himself silly after a long day in the garbage truck, bitchin' about the smarty pants' with their fancy math stats, and the decline of the enforcer, and the overall pussification of America.

 

 

That's cause you lack Big Beastly Bruising Bad Bear Bruins Ballz.
