#1932436 Wings are playoff bound.

Posted by mindfly on 04 April 2010 - 08:16 PM

Superhot Vancouver? Didn't they just get shelled 8-3?

Chicago who have a starting goalies worse than our backup?

Yes, very frightening.

I would take Niemi over both Howard and Osgood based on how they played recently.


#1932309 Wings are playoff bound.

They have played like they should ~3 out of 79 games.. that's some serious SUCKING.



Well that doesn't matter anymore.

It's the 16 wins we need starting in 2 weeks that matter.


#1931550 Ozzie hides when backing up

Posted by Pucks on 04 April 2010 - 09:21 AM

I can't believe you guys don't know this? He's doing a workout tape. It's Richard Simmons - Sweatin to the oldies. It's quite intense though and you need the proper attire.




#1931463 Ozzie hides when backing up

Posted by DetroitWhat on 04 April 2010 - 12:39 AM

Has anyone else noticed that Ozzie seems to be hiding ever since he has become the clear cut backup. Usually the backup goalie hangs out on the bench/hallway near equipment manager Paul Boyer and charts the shots during the game. The backup also usually comes out on the ice with the rest of the players after the game to congratulate the winning goalie. I have been to a couple of home games recently and have noticed that Ozzie does not stand on the bench or come out to congratulate Howard after a victory. I have read nothing but positive quotes from Babcock and Howard about how great of a teammate and mentor Ozzie has been for Howard but I am very surprised that he is not being a team player. Even Hasek let his ego go during the 2008 playoff run when he was diminished to a backup role. He continued to be great in practice and sit on the bench and support Ozzie and the rest of his teammates on their run to the cup. I am disappointed in Ozzie and feel that he is being a bit selfish. What are your thoughts?


#1931711 4/4 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Flyers 4

Posted by zettie85 on 04 April 2010 - 11:55 AM

and right now we are seeing the blueprint for teams on how to play and beat the Wings in the playoffs.....

get physical, don't give the skills players room to move and hit them at every turn.



We will have May, Abdelkader and Tollefson come playoff time if we need toughness so I'm not worried about that.

That's what you get for grabbing a bunch of Toronto Maple Leafs in order to make the playoffs.

#1925119 Happy Anniversary

I didn't care for the way that that brawl interrupted the flow of the game.


#1925105 Happy Anniversary

Posted by Lovin Jiri Fischer on 26 March 2010 - 10:08 AM

Totally watched the video first thing this morning. This is the day that an innocent 7-year-old girl learned that there is evil in the world and that Darren McCarty will stop it.


#1925123 Re-alignment

Posted by stevkrause on 26 March 2010 - 10:37 AM

**EDIT - UPDATED ON 5/20/11 to allow for Winnipeg**

We've gone over this several times, but this time I did some geographic research, travel distances, etc...

I'm in the mindset that all teams should travel equally and I would split it basically on a North East to South West type bend and then separate it back into Wales and Campbell Conferences and divisions (division names are just ideas and subjective) - Spread out original 6 teams, 3 per conference, equal West Coast teams split per conference - EVERYONE TRAVELS

**DISCLAIMER** - Below are just suggestions and NOT the guts of the post, the real thought is into the re-alignment into an even travel schedule for all teams - take the suggested conferences for what they are.

WALES CONFERENCE
ADAMS DIVISION
Edmonton
Vancouver
Calgary
San Jose
Colorado

PATRICK DIVISION
Minnesota
Toronto
New York Islanders
Buffalo
Chicago

HOWE DIVISION
Columbus
Nashville
St Louis
Detroit
Ottawa

CAMPBELL CONFERENCE
SMYTH DIVISION
New York Rangers
Philadelphia
Washington
Florida
Tampa Bay

NORRIS DIVISION
Anaheim
Los Angeles
Phoenix
Dallas
Winnipeg

ORR DIVISION
Boston
Pittsburgh
Carolina
Montreal
New Jersey

Everyone travels, all teams have ABOUT equal travel all the way around

In Division games - 5 games a team = 20 games
Out Of Division/In Conference - 3 games a team = 30 games
Opposite Conference - 2 games(home and home) = 30 games
2 flex games against opposite conference, geographic relevance/rivalry games = 2 games

82 game schedule.

I realize that some teams MAY get boned the most on travel IN division, but put it in perspective, only 10 games of these 20 against these teams will be on the road and it could be part of a west coast swing... also, all other teams in the division, essentially have to make the swing at least 5 times a season, plus the extra 2 or 3 for out of conference, so it comes very close to evening out... it still screws them less than the current schedule screws quite a FEW teams (Detroit, Chicago, Minnesota, Columbus, Nashville, etc...)

If this was last year or any year really and Osbad was in net we would have lost.

Well considering I doubt Zetterberg has the heart to fight a very physical player like Crosby I doubt we will ever know.

Your baiting game is old dude. :thumbdown:
