#2359498 Anyone ever used a 2-3 system before?

Posted by Seraph on 22 February 2013 - 02:52 PM

Not cool to be disrespectful to a post like this. It's creative and creates an interesting hockey discussion. If you think it's a bad idea explain why. Good way to learn.

I concur that with the defence pinching, it transforms into an inferior 3-2. And you are hancuffing the offense from creating any real chances.

Franzen needs to spend a summer at Aaron Downey's potato farm becoming a man.

#2352513 2/7 GDT : Red Wings 5 at St. Louis Blues 1

Flippula is couldn't get a shot through if his life depended on it

Fil is the master of hustle, but then falling down and/or over-handling the puck.

#2352018 Tomas Tatar Is Jiri Hudler 2.0

I thought Brunner was the new and improved Hudler. Can we just agree that Hudler wasn't spectacular and leave it at that? Haha, poor guy.

no... we make it sound a lot less amazing than it was... it was so unreal

It was almost Datsyukian, but more Brunntacular.

This place would have been panic city if we lost again. Not unreasonably so, either. The room for error is cut in half with this shortened season. 0-2 to start the season would not have been a good place to be.

So when I left the game the Wings were up 2-0.  Then got home just in time to see the shootout. 


anyone got a recap of how they blew it? 

We decided we wanted to play with four people on the ice tonight.

Brunner is hungry. I'm digging it.

#2337825 NHL, NHLPA reach tentative agreement on new CBA

Did I not say it would happen? We were all losing our minds here. Let's finally gather around the TVs, beers, and ice rinks and enjoy this great sport.

If the NHLPA doesn't take this, they're idiots. The season will be canceled and their bargaining chip will be worthless going into negotiations for next year.

#2333012 Red Wings Off Season: I Give Them an A

Posted by Seraph on 29 October 2012 - 10:08 PM

I think you are being optimistic and there is nothing wrong with that. The fact is that our defense is unproven and it's the first time in a long time that we're going into a season feeling shaky on the back end. You can play various tricks with numbers and stats to convince yourself it's going to be okay, but that's just a more calculated form of optimism. Our off-season acquisitions were not significant enough to make the entire fan base feel equally optimistic, but half the fun is seeing what happens and how we adapt. Though I will say whatever perks you want to cite about signing Samuelsson, Tootoo, and Brunner (bang for buck, etc.) won't mean much if we end up dropping games from our shaky defense. Filling that gap was our top priority that's where I would most heavily weigh the grade. I wouldn't necessarily give us an A, but here's to being proven wrong.

#2332219 NHL Fan Lockout Pledge

Posted by Seraph on 19 October 2012 - 09:52 AM

This is silly. The fact that we're all clattering away on this message board during a lockout is that we're all huge fans of hockey. If the game came back, the last thing I'd want is to financially "punish" the league. I want the game to be popular and strong and I am bothered by those that consider our game a fringe sport. The fact of the matter is that they have a product we love and can use that to their advantage now. It sucks but we have to wait it out until the greed gets worked out.

#2331347 Russians Possibly Staying In KHL After Lockout

Posted by Seraph on 11 October 2012 - 06:00 PM

Hockey players tend to have egos as big as their appetite for cash. As long as the NHL is the most competitive and historic league, they will come back to establish their legacy. Sure it's nice to get paid a competitive salary and be at home, but no one will ever give them props for being one of the greatest while they are in the KHL. They are mad and irrational like us fans, but they'll march right back when things are worked out like us too.
