#2055583 10/30 GDT: Predators 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by Barrie on 31 October 2010 - 09:36 AM

Hey, I got back from the game about an hour ago. The arena was about 1/3 empty! Ive never seen so many empty seats at The Joe. I checked the box score and the paid attendance was 18,177, but I wouldn't be surprised if 14,000 showed up. I didn't mind, the concessions lines were fast, it only took a couple minutes to get a hot dog and it was easy to move down to better seats.

Great bounce back game by Ozzie. Nice second goal by Datsyuk, only Dats could score that goal!

I should add, nice goal by Homer too. Classic Holmstrom! I had my Holmstrom jersey on and when he scored I was pointing to his name on the back of it, and stood up to point at it again when his name was announced over the PA. :lol: Fun times!

Poor Ozzie, I feel sorry for the guy.

I remember how you guys cried and complained about how dirty it was when Cooke murdered Savard. Now that your dirty a$$ player hit someone you immediately pretend like it wasn't a shoulder. I'm not saying it was ---- Just saying --- Your guys double standards are entertaining to say the least.

Anyway ---- Gunna be fun to see the rubber match this year.

Pens in 6

Crosby Sucks! :cool:


#2052122 Kronwall's Hit on Selanne:

Posted by Barrie on 24 October 2010 - 11:08 AM

Then Beleskey should be banned for a life in NHL for his stupid elbow attempt on Franzen.

Yea I think that blatant attempt to hit a man in the head with a history of concussions was a lot worse than the Kronwall hit.

Seeing guys who hit from behind causing concussions only get 2 games, Kronwall's hit won't get anything.


#2047454 Wings need a goalie

Posted by Barrie on 15 October 2010 - 02:26 PM

We're fine. After 4 games we're 2-1-1, that's another 100 point season.

how many times do i need to clarify people about the salary cap. Ozzie has a 35+ contract which mean if he retires his salary still counts against the cap.

and about ozzie how many cups does he have? AND hes the backup and prolly one of the best backups in the league as far as success goes. and we have howard.

End rant

:thumbup: Good rant! I especially like your opening sentence, that made me laugh.

Preds win 3-2 in regulation over the CORE

:clap:

Funny that I was cheering for the Leafs and the Preds tonight, two teams I don't like, however anyone but the Black Hawks and Pens!

Go Wings!


#2044879 Kirk Maltby to announce he is retiring

Home movies of Maltby scoring the last goal of his career, Feb 13, 2010 vs. Ottawa.

Yes, that's me holding the camera! :lol:




#2042691 10/8 GDT: Ducks 0 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Barrie on 08 October 2010 - 09:17 PM

I'm really starting to think there's a problem with the Canadian players in the league. There seems to be a generation of poor sports, cry babies, and cheap shot artists towards the Europeans, lead by Iginla, Crosby, Thornton, Getzlaf, and Perry. Almost like it's a Canadian vs. European mindset. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the stuff Don Cherry says on Hockey Night in Canada?


#2041362 2010-2011 Season Predictions

Posted by Barrie on 06 October 2010 - 11:15 PM

Bettman will continue to screw with the game, and Crosby will continue to be marketed to death, infuriating the fans even more.


#2037191 Who do and did you hate more?

Posted by Barrie on 26 September 2010 - 05:33 PM

The officials <_<

Bettman and Crosby

I was at every home game that series. I still can't believe their level of doucheness in that series.

I remember too when McCarty signed on with the Flames, one of the Flames players said, "We won't rub it in that we beat him last year". I thought huh? DMac, a 3 time Stanley Cup Champion at the time, is being brought in to show you guys how to win.

Idiots!


#2037169 Who do and did you hate more?

Avs. without question or debate. The Rivalry between the wings and the Avs, the dirty hit, the retribution Mac and the team took, it was the most intense rivalry I've personally ever experienced between the wings and another team. I dont think anything will ever come close to those years again. To much happened to spark that, on and off the ice.

I don't hate the Avs anymore. The hit on Draper has been avenged, Lemieux will forever be known as (1) a turtle and (2) a wuss when confronted by someone his own size, and we won the rivalry with the 7-0 win in 2002. It's old news with the Avs.

I'm biased towards goaltenders so I say Ozzie. He's done a ton for us, and even in the midst of poor seasons I still love that guy. :D

Yup despite a couple bad seasons, Ozzie is #2 all time in Red Wings regular season wins, and #1 in the playoffs. Ozzie is da man!

Crosby sucks!

Oh wait, that was last game.
