#2492386 3/6 GDT: Avs 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) Sorry Nick.

Posted by Sgt. Angry on 07 March 2014 - 08:05 AM

So glad I've decided to not watch it after the ceremony.

 

btw. congrats to MacKinnon for breaking the great ones record. This kid is something special.

So happy for MacKinnon that he wasn't drafted by Detroit. If he was, instead of breaking Gretzky's record, he'd still be in Grand Rapids, and we'd be pleading with Holland to bring him up!

If the Wings aren't careful, they're going to get too big a lead to blow for a shootout!

If it isn't bad enough to have to watch a loss like this, comes the realization that not only is this one lousy hockey team, but they are a bunch of ******* to boot. But, of course, I'm not telling you anything you didn't already know. God, what I wouldn't pay for another Probie, Kocur, or Grimson!




#2451180 11/4 GDT: Red Wings 2 @ Jets 4

Winnipeg played one hell of a game.

This wasn't a case of a bad effort against a bad team, it was more like a kind of bad effort against a team playing like it was Game 7.

As long as we get back to winning in the next game I'm willing to let this one slide.

OK, yeah, you can't be "up" all of the time, although considering the kind of money these guys make, they should be expected to. What gets me is that you'd think that this team would be smart enough to realize when their opponent is in dire straits, and will be coming out to prove a point. This happens regularly  with Wings opponents, and it always seems to catch Detroit completely by surprise




#2415835 WCSF Game 7 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blackhawks 2 OT (CHI wins series, 4-3)

Posted by Sgt. Angry on 29 May 2013 - 10:53 PM

Trying like heck to stifle my emotions. After all, the guys that just choked away a 3-1 game lead will wake up tomorrow, continue to receive their million dollar checks throughout the summer, and drive their luxury suv's to the finest golf courses money can buy, while the rest of us will have to get up tomorrow, go to our s*** jobs, and have to remain civil throughout the day, knowing that if we screw up something even a fraction of a degree as bad as some of the Wings did, we'll get our asses fired. Get pissed? You bet! Get sad and weepy? Hell no!

 

And thanks, John Keating, for not asking Mike Babcock about injuries during the series. What a dork!

The Wings always seem to be caught off guard when they get a two goal lead, and the other team steps it up a notch. Now we'll probably progress to the "opponents sub goalie plays his ass off" part of the game.

I wish that I could be confident that this debacle would force Holland to put together a team with some heart. But, instead, I fully expect to hear all of the Wing's shills start talking the same old s*** about how we have all of this great talent in Grand Rapids, and how we shouldn't have to look "outside" to get the cup back. I hope that the first person who hears Holland start touting the Wings farm system will drive his head into the plexiglass.


#2288548 Do the Pens Have the Cup Locked Up?

Posted by Sgt. Angry on 15 April 2012 - 09:59 PM

One of the aspects of a class team is how they handle adversity. Especially when it's to the degree that's happened to the Pens. Could there be any worse example of how they fail at this? Unless maybe they killed a Flyer? If it weren't so delicious to watch them implode, you'd have to shield your eyes from the carnage.


I'm glad I saw this game. Now, when the Wings are playing bad, and I start wishing we had some tough guys to "make them pay for beating the Wings," I can remember this game and know that I really don't want the Detroit Red Wings to be like that.


#2288397 WCQF Game Three GDT : Predators 3 at Red Wings 2

Posted by Sgt. Angry on 15 April 2012 - 06:09 PM

I missed today's game, but the Wings organization in the past year has started to remind me of the Wings back when I started following them. Back then, every year they would trot out Howe, Delvecchio, Marcel Pronovost, and a team full of Larry Jeffery's and Billy MacNeil's - average, journeymen players. And they competed in the playoffs, but were never good enough to go very far. That's what we have now - Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Lidstrom, and a bunch of nobodies, or once-were's. We may progress, but it won't be because of skill, it will be because of luck, or playing harder than the opponent - and I haven't seen that for a loooonnngg time.


#2283873 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by Sgt. Angry on 12 April 2012 - 07:41 PM

Slowly through the years, I'm getting a grasp on the NHL's priorities.

A repeat offender (Weber) plays **** the Bruiser on Z, and gets less than a slap on the wrist.

A stellar player in NHL history (Lidstrom) gets suspended for how many games? for missing the all-star weekend when he was sick several years ago.

Who can figure?!?!?!?


#2283118 WCQF Game 1 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Predators 3

Posted by Sgt. Angry on 11 April 2012 - 10:46 PM

Babcock either needs to play Hank and Pavs together or Kenny needs to find Pavs a LEGITIMATE WINGER in the offseason because Franzen simply does not cut it.

Other than that I think the Wings have a lot going for them in game 2. I think that that cheap shot by Weber will turn out to be the difference maker of the series because all Weber did was tick the Wings off... not a smart thing to do. GO WINGS!


Unless the Wings D-men are purposefully concealing their emotions, it doesn't SOUND like they are ticked off at all about the Weber hit. When Keating asked Kronwall and Stuart about the dirty hit, they answered in a wimpy, hushed tone of voice, similar to the tone you would use when reading a bed-time story to your kid. I doubt any of them have the balls to do anything about it.

If it were one of Nashville's scrubs that did it they might get a game or two, but since it was Weber he might get a fine but will not be suspended. Anyone remember the 2nd round in '09 when Niedermayer gave Datsyuk a blatant elbow to the head at the end of game 6?(he of course faced no discipline whatsoever) Bettman will not suspend any star player unless he absolutely cannot avoid it

oh, and Weber won't face any reprisal from any Wings' player either, this team doesn't have anybody for that


And don't forget Malkin in 2009!

Anybody at the Joe who doesn't get up and leave right now is stupid!


#2268721 3/9 GDT : Kings 3 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Sgt. Angry on 09 March 2012 - 10:01 PM

Do we EVER win a faceoff in these situations?????


#2249885 1/25 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Canadiens 7

Posted by Sgt. Angry on 25 January 2012 - 11:48 PM

Err... yeah.

In 2010, the Wings won 3-2 at JLA. In 2007, the Wings won 4-1 in Montreal.

Some frustration I can understand, but comments like this take it too far.


I don't see all the games, so that's why I said I can't "remember" them winning in a long time. Why do you have to be such a flaming dickhead with all of your replies? Not just to me, but to just about everyone on this board. This place would be a better place without your presence. I would be very interested how many people you've driven off this board. But I'm guessing that would be something you're proud of.
