#2510121 ECQF - Series C - Penguins versus Blue Jackets

Posted by LeftWinger on Yesterday, 10:07 PM

Hmmmm, Pit down by 2 and they get two straight powerplays to tie it up....how strange.


and that is why I am so glad we aren't playing Pit.

#2509791 ECQF - Series A - Bruins versus Red Wings

WTF happened to Amonte? Geez dude, it looks like you just rolled out of bed, had a dozen doughnuts and a gallon of milk....

#2508535 Maple Leafs Name Shanahan New Club President

Posted by LeftWinger on 10 April 2014 - 08:37 PM

Shanny will sign Alfie in the summer, Leafs fans get lost in their emotions...

#2508532 Play em or rest em?

Posted by LeftWinger on 10 April 2014 - 08:33 PM

Rest them.


Datsyuk, Kronwall, Alfie, Legwand, Franzen. They recalled Coreau, so maybe Howard is gonna sit out as well. Monster should back up Coreau the next two games so he can rest as well. Call up Ferraro, Callahan, Tootoo, Almqvist and Ouellet.

#2508486 Have the Wild Hit Their Ceiling?

Posted by LeftWinger on 10 April 2014 - 02:44 PM

as a matter of fact, Wings only have one less ROW than the Wild. So, when you look at all the fanfare that came along with what the Wild were trying to do and considering the Wings were the Griffins for a big chunk of the year, ya, we're laughing way out loud!

#2508473 Pens or Bruins

Posted by LeftWinger on 10 April 2014 - 12:40 PM

Both series will be tough, both will probably be 1st round losses, IF we are going to lose I would much rather lose to Boston than to NBC, the NHL, the Officials, and the Penguins.

#2508442 Nyquist since Datsyuk's Return & Unnatural NHL Development

Posted by LeftWinger on 10 April 2014 - 10:14 AM

Ya, relax, at least he doesn't take months off like Franzee...


I do think when Babs mixed up the lines he screwed with the chemistry a bit, but hopefully he goes back to what was working before!


Put Nyquist back on a line with Legwand, if you want to move Abby up, put him on that line, Franzee is useless anywhere, but we have to play him in case he decides to go on one of his 4 game scoring streaks before his 14 game drought.


Re-unite the kids-line and plug Datsyuk in with Alfie and Franzee


Nyquist - Legwand - Abdelkader

Franzee - Datsyuk - Alfie

Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco

Helm - Glendening - Miller


That's actually a really nice line up...


Jeez, just looking at that lineup, what the heck is gonna happen next season when Z and Weiss are back?

#2507987 4/9 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Pens 4 (SO). Wings clinch playoff spot!

Legwand blew all our good work

Wow! What a great play there by Legwand! Took away a great scoring chance by Pit!

Edzo just said that once Sheahan realized he could fall on Fluery, he just fell. This guy is a disgrace to USA Hockey. Any takers ?

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 April 2014 - 07:04 PM

how long until Edzo calls for a penalty on us for getting out of the way of a hit?



I'm also not a fan of NBC games or these love birds.



someone needs to PhotoShop a pic of edzo peeking over Pierre's shoulder in a jealous glare!

#2507732 Puck Daddy: Trotz is probably out in Nashville

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 April 2014 - 04:52 PM

I'd consider Hitchcock...if Babs ever stepped down.


If Weber wants to get in to the playoffs every year, he needs to demand a trade to Detroit.  I will give them 5 first round picks, Almqvist, Franzen and included to Poile his own LC franchise.

#2507029 Lightning sign GM Yzerman to contract extension

Posted by LeftWinger on 07 April 2014 - 06:12 PM

bottom line....we needed Legwand, we didn't need Jarnkrok.


Congrats Steve.

#2506863 How about some love for Howard!

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 April 2014 - 11:52 AM

no love from me.


The same excuses everyone gives Osgood for winning so much you are giving to Howard for losing so much. So why is it that Osgood was an average goalie and Howard is great? Howard is Osgood all over again. If Osgood had this D to work with, no way he gets 400 wins. Howard only "looked" good when he had Lids, Rafi and Stu in front of him. He is showing you his true form now. You cannot have it both ways. Osgood and Howard are the same, average goalies.

#2506853 A plea to Holland.

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 April 2014 - 11:04 AM

said it before and I'll say it again. We need two veteran defensemen to bridge this team before Ouellet and Sproul are ready in two years. Dump Kindl, go ahead a waive Lashoff and don't even let Quincey call you this summer.


Sign any two of Morris, Mitchell, Boyle, Orpik or Weaver. Bring up Marchenko to be #7.

#2506728 4/5 GDT - Canadiens 5 vs Red Wings 3

Posted by LeftWinger on 05 April 2014 - 08:51 PM

great third by the Wings, only to be let down by their below average goalies again. D sucks, we all know that, but when Howard and Gus cannot control rebounds, its all on them. Wings had all the momentum, Gus lost this game.


btw, where has Franzen been? Trade him.
