Datsyuk's lack of hustle has been costing the Wings....

 

TANK IT

Wow, if the offsides call is that bad, is O'Halloran reffing?

 

Linesman make that call  :lol:

 

But I get what you’re saying.

Why is a dissenting opinion considered trolling around here? And really that comment is not at all out of place considering the quality of the Wings play in the first period.

 

you don’t know much about ShannahanMan do you?




#2571725 Getzlaf calls Ovechkin a diver, O says "I have hair"

Posted by rick zombo on 18 February 2015 - 02:21 PM

 

I thought this gif was from that playoff round?  Either way, they're definitely d-bag cry babies. 

 

This is your team "leadership" Anaheim.  You should be so proud. 

 

It happened during that weird/uncommon set of back-to-back weekend games March 22 and 23 in Anaheim. So it was sort of like a playoff round. ;)

 

The Wings won the first game 5-1 and the next game 2-1. I think the meltdown happened late in the second game. What's missing from the gif is Selanne throwing one of his typical "classy" hissy fits over by the bench before he got a 10 minute misconduct.

 

That was a gooooooood Duck-owning srping.

Getzlaf's a jackass.  I watched that game.  The slash he calls Ovie out on was DEFINITELY a slash, right on his hands, and Ovie didn't react much at all.  He shook his hand, and pulled his glove off to look at it, but that's normal.  He didn't throw his hand up, or act like he'd been chopped down.  Then again, we are talking about the guy who did this when he was losing to Detroit so maybe Ovie's on to something.

The best was that time about two months after this when we beat those d-bag cry babies in a best of 7 playoff round.




#2571470 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

Posted by rick zombo on 17 February 2015 - 12:01 PM

Mickey is a legendary color man. Those who speak ill of him shall receive no butt pats.
Can mickey drink? I thought he had bad stomach/intestinal problems?


I totally agree. But that doesn't mean he falls outside the realm of criticism from time to time.

And yes, I don't think he can drink anymore either.


#2571443 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

Posted by rick zombo on 17 February 2015 - 10:58 AM

That happened because there was a long stretch of action with no whistles. I took it more as a comment about how Ken was so busy calling the play-by-play that there was no room for Mickey to get a comment in.


#2571374 2/16 GDT : Montreal Canadiens 2 at Red Wings 0

Posted by rick zombo on 16 February 2015 - 10:34 PM

But special teams and goaltending win playoff series.

Anyway, the Habs have issues of their own. Bottom 3rd in goals for. That's not good enough to go all the way.

Turtleneck's goal came when Detroit should have been on the PP for the Abdelkader takedown. 


:)

Nice to know someone else calls him that.

And yes, you're right. And I'm still furious.


#2570485 Good to see they're getting along

If anything they'll only give it to an elite player who wore it somewhere else and signs during free agency.

I disagree.  If Sergei Fedorov played his entire career in Detroit and retired as a Red Wing, I have little doubt that his number would have been retired.

 

Agreed.

 

Just think if Feds had an opportunity to play with Lids (for several more seasons), Dats, Hank, etc.

 

As a fan - I remember how frustrating it was with all the issues between him, and Holland...To me - Feds will always be a Red Wing.

 

I respectfully disagree. For one, Feds was never a captain, and never would have been. Secondly, Yzerman and Lidstrom were generational legends. Yzerman was Detroit’s boy and Lidstrom has more hardware than Tony Stark. That’s what it takes to get your number retired in Detroit. Fedorov was never that type of player. He’s just not rafter-jersey material for these reasons.

 

I feel like I have to say this: I really really loved Fedorov. He was the “coolest” Red Wing I’ve ever seen. Cooler than Z even, and that’s saying something. When I was in my teens, playing hockey, I wanted to be him. But I see no scenario that ultimately gets his number retired. Just my opinion.

Great player, and integral to the teams resurgence...but I still say his jersey shouldn't be retired.  Happy to see him in the Hall though. 

 

Only chance he had is if he continued to play here and retired as a Red Wing. But it would still be doubtful.


They're

 

You had to be "that guy" :lol:




#2570268 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by rick zombo on 12 February 2015 - 12:11 PM

 

You're right, but it does sort of insinuate that Holland was "thinking about it" instead of laughing him off the phone. 

 

Yeah, I got that impression too.

 

But I barely believe that this deal was even in place. So I'm certainly not going to trust this source's description of Holland's reaction/handling of the offer. Plus, as if they're going to report that Holland "laughed" Murray off the phone. As if he'd even do that. He's a professional, not a 12 year old or a member of LGWs. :lol:
