#2160115 Greetings from LetsGoSharks.com

Posted by Barrie on 28 April 2011 - 05:50 PM

To be 100% honest, I don't like this idea of combining forums. I know it's only a game, but if I wanted to talk to Sharks fans I would have done my own Google search to find a Sharks forum.

After last year, and all the diving by the Sharks, leading to questionable penalties called against the Wings, this maybe a very emotional series. I want revenge and I want the Wings to win big!

I come here to talk to Wings fans, vent, and be a homer without having to hear from other team's fans. I stay away from other team's forums because I think they have every right to talk to their own fans, vent, and be a homer as well without hearing from me.

Just my thoughts...

#2156363 Big TV, Big Cap

Posted by Barrie on 22 April 2011 - 11:51 AM

Every team also gets a chunk of that TV revenue, that's why the cap would be going up.

Yea but, the floor is why 10 teams are almost bankrupt. Teams can't keep up with the increasing floor.

Personally I think they should allow teams to go under the floor, but if they do, they can't get in on revenue sharing.

#2153795 Helm vs. Jovanovski

I put these clips on my Facebook. My favorite moment of the playoffs so far is Helm vs. Jovanovski.

Never show people up like that! It'll comeback to haunt you.

By the way, I loved Helm's hit on Jovo to lead to the first goal!

#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.

#2140580 4/2 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Predators 3 (OT)

Posted by Barrie on 02 April 2011 - 03:26 PM

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

Posted by Barrie on 26 March 2011 - 09:50 PM

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

Posted by Barrie on 26 March 2011 - 09:28 PM

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.
