#2134492 The Wings flipped the "switch"

Posted by Z and D for the C on 22 March 2011 - 11:21 AM

Sorry, but, no they didn't. As much as I want to believe that the wings have officially "flipped the switch" I just don't believe it. The Wings might have put on a better effort, but the Pens I'm sure also dropped their level of play.

#2132035 Whats your favorite "BAD" contract right now?

Posted by Rick Zombos Ghost on 18 March 2011 - 01:43 PM

I think you mean Franzen. As the years go by, that contract is going to look worse and worse

I'm afraid you are right....many on here will disagree. I thought we should have offered Hossa whatever it took and let Mule go...

#2130168 Brule crushes Letang

Posted by jollymania on 14 March 2011 - 11:44 AM

Everyone is noting that he had his arm tucked in; what you are not noting is that he hit him arm first. When you hit a guy cleanly in hockey, you don't just blindly charge in and ram him as happened in this situation. A clean hit is done with the... say it with me...SHOULDER.

Brule hit him straight on with his arms, and what made Letang bleed was Brule jumping into Letang, and Brule's helmet hitting Letang's jaw.

If Brule had hit Letang cleanly, Brule wouldn't have carried over top of him because a clean hockey hit transfers most of your forward momentum, and keeps you standing on the ice.

Yes, I know Letang is the best Penguin currently playing.

wow, have you not heard of mattias ohlund or ken danyko? should we we write the history books and call 90% of their hits penalties and dirty?

Why is this such a big deal anyway? I equate this to arguing about any other bad penalty call. Bad calls or missed calls happen every game. Plus, I can see where someone would call it charging anyway. It's not like he got 5 and a game for it.

you are being quite na´ve, or do you not see a trend?

ohlund should be suspended for the rest of his life right?

#2129455 3/11 GDT: Oilers 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by Firehawk on 12 March 2011 - 10:12 AM

So Howard does one better than last time and keeps it down to one goal against, and we're STILL complaining about him? Yeah, he really sucks, doesn't he? I can't believe he let in that one whole soft goal. I mean, there's no reason he couldn't have got us a shutout so that the rest of the team could've taken the night off...what a lazy bum. Trade him.

LOL. And if the wings hadn't miraculously scored a goal by pure luck hit 2 edm players, the wings would have lost on arguably the worst goal Howard has given up this year.

Look at the big picture there pal. Howard has a horrid GAA and a horrid SV%.

I agree. If you want real hockey talk, go over to the hfboards. The hockey fans there are much more down to earth and its refreshing. I come here to discuss the games with fans of the team I love, but it seems here, too many red wings fans have brain damage.

Howard let in one bad goal. Hell, its a goal I let in probably once every two weeks. Anyway, he rebounds and plays solid, yet still gets the shaft. Just further proof of the lofty expectations that wings fans here have on their goalies. In order for a goalie to be great here, 3 of the 4 things must happen every game.

1. A shutout
2. No rebounds
3. Less than 1.50 GAA
4. Greater than a .945 Save Percentage

Print this out and circle the ones that are applicable. If you can't circle 3, he is a bad goalie and should be traded.

This is the most retarded post I've seen here in awhile.

First, don't compare yourself to Howard LOL. You're not an NHL goalie dude, so you are expected to let soft goals in. Second, Howard doesn't play solid. Howard has a horrible GAA. The real fact remains that the wings have not played well and have not been consistent at all over a long period of time, yet you're focused on a very lucky win yesterday, against the 3rd worst team in the league.

People would be singing a very different tune today if we hadn't gotten purely lucky at the end there, VERY DIFFERENT. It would have been a 1-0 loss on the worst goal Howard's ever given up, and people would have been down on the wings offense, and their continued lack of defense, and continued lack of 60 minute play.

IT WAS EDMONTON! Actually, it wasn't even Edmonton, it was the AHL Edmonton team. It was a joke that the wings couldn't score any goals against that team yesterday.

LOOK at the big picture.

#2128978 Owners back Gary Bettman with 5-year contract extension

Posted by esteef on 11 March 2011 - 05:25 PM

Well - ya gotta give the little turd credit where it's due...He got them the cap, tv ratings are slowly but steadily rising, and overall league parity.

I don't care for him, but obviously most of the owners do :brow:

Yep, 6 mil a year players in the AHL, tv ratings going up on channels that no one watches and guys getting away with taking people's heads off. Great job Gary!

Im saying i equate the Carhartt award to the budweiser taste greatness moment. I think the term meaningless is an understatement. No heart out eating here!

I don't care how many carhartt awards he wins I'd still trade him for zach bogosian.

Why does a pizza empire owner own a hockey team?
Oh yeah, to sell some tickets.

Ahh Capitalism.

#2126842 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by wings1110 on 06 March 2011 - 07:09 PM

#2124054 Wings sign Howard to 2-year, $4.5M extension

Howie = the new Ozzie.

Even when he wins, he loses.

#2121835 2/24 GDT: Stars 4 at Red Wings 1

Posted by Aussie_Wing on 24 February 2011 - 10:26 PM

Franzen 11 games without a goal.

And with Franzen, if he's not scoring, he's virtually useless.

#2117318 Will he wont he?

Posted by lookalive07 on 16 February 2011 - 03:14 PM

If that were the case and I were Holland, I'd seriously consider trying to get Bogosian.

#2117317 Will he wont he?

Posted by HankthaTank on 16 February 2011 - 03:01 PM

Bogosian for Hudler and a pick.

We can only dream.

:siren: :thumbup: Yes we sure can. Hell, they can even have Kindl.

#2117305 Will he wont he?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 16 February 2011 - 01:46 PM

I doubt anything happens - but they would probably be looking for actual roster players and not just picks.

Bogosian for Hudler and a pick.

We can only dream.

#2116235 Isles vs Pens

When i think of Mario and fighting, i think of this,

Always brings a smile to my face. The Pens were never short of a goon to protect Lemieux during his career.
