#2151193 A call to fans

Posted by Barrie on 16 April 2011 - 04:25 PM

Bettman tired to stop this before. I have 1997 playoff games on VHS/DVD, and whenever a octopus hit the ice, Bud Lynch had to tell the fans if something is thrown on the ice, it's an automatic penalty to the home team.

If it didn't work then, it won't work now.

I don't know about the rest of you, but I really enjoyed the NBC broadcast without Pierre McGuire. He's on the Philly-Sabres game right now. I really hope he does Eastern games this playoffs and stays far away from Detroit.

Ok we got this. Winnipeg, ooops I mean Phoenix, had their chance. Bettman must be fuming it's only 1-0. Things will start to even out now.


#2140903 4/2 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Predators 3 (OT)

Posted by Barrie on 02 April 2011 - 05:10 PM

I hope this game showed people that if the Wings work hard, they have ALL the tools needed to win it all.

Agree, there's been to much meaningless hockey the last couple months. FINALLY a game that meant something, and we won, on the road, and when we were down 3-0.

Oh me of little faith, when Nashville went up 3-0 I thought I'd follow the Tigers-Yankees game. Then I find out the Wings scored 2 quick ones, so I'm back to watching the Wings game. :lol:


#2136847 History Will Be Made

Posted by Barrie on 27 March 2011 - 06:48 PM

Great clip, Datsyuk's reaction to the penalty is classic!

If the NHL was consistent, we probably would have won the 2009 Stanley Cup. Malkin would have been suspended for Game 3, for starting a fight within the last 5 minutes of Game 2, and the Pens would have had a to many men penalty called against them in Game 6 when they had 6 skaters on the ice for 20 seconds.

I still think Pittsburgh's 2009 Cup is tainted, and probably always will. They got that Championship handed to them with a bow on it from the League. Plus I remember someone during the playoffs said the Pens in 75% of their games had the first Power Play.


#2136587 Jimmy Howard injury

The Leafs have a history of getting away with goals while blatantly interfering with the goaltender.

All that help, and they still haven't made the playoffs since 2004 or won the Cup since 1967.


#2136567 Jimmy Howard injury

How did that goal even count? Lupul hit Howard in the crease and then sat on him. That's allowed?... We get goals called back by only hitting a goalie in the pads with the stick.

Looking forward to watching the game, but not looking forward to listening to Pierre McGuire.

#2132085 Whats your favorite "BAD" contract right now?

Posted by Barrie on 18 March 2011 - 04:23 PM

I think the Leafs take it with Kessel and Phaneuf.

$4m for 30 goals is par for the course. Franzen could be doing better, but he's making his money.

Yea there's nothing wrong with Franzen's contract.


#2131900 Datsyuk, Rafalski Injury Update Thread

Posted by Barrie on 17 March 2011 - 11:05 PM

Hey Dats, rest up on the weekend and be in there against Pittsburgh! I'll be at that game :innocent:


#2130842 Heatley elbows Ott

Posted by Barrie on 16 March 2011 - 04:36 PM

Why is this even a debate by the media and NHL? Heatley knowingly elbowed a guy in the head (and I don't care if it's Ott), yes he should get a suspension! Start with 10 or more games for this stuff, and set up a "3 strikes you're out" plan. But typical NHL will just give him a game or two and it'll happen again, in a different city by a different player, in the next couple of days.

Call me crazy, but this stuff HAS to stop! I don't want to see anyone get a concussion, and I especially don't want to see our Red Wings players get concussion. We're lucky Stuart ONLY got a broken jaw. Also imagine if Crosby or Hall was Datsyuk or Zetterberg instead?

Bettman has zero chance at a TV deal if he allows head hunting to continue, and his 5 point plan is a complete joke! All he needs is one point, "Don't hit people in the head!!".


#2128955 Owners back Gary Bettman with 5-year contract extension

Owners back Gary Bettman with 5-year contract extension

Wow, I guess this was done in November, but wasn't reported until today.

I've had enough of this guy. I think when the Red Wings start their decline (whenever that is), I'm focusing more attention on Baseball.


#2128517 NHL could lose Air Canada sponsorship over headshots

Posted by Barrie on 10 March 2011 - 03:07 PM

I just heard, again on the FAN590, Bettman's counter to Air Canada's threat is that the NHL teams won't use Air Canada anymore if they pull their marketing $$$.

This idiot just doesn't get it!
