#2480352 2/2 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Capitals 6 (OT)

Weak call on Smith for the trip if you ask me. People blaming Smith and Howard for this loss just prove you need a scapegoat. Not many goalies will stop a PP onetimer by Ovechkin when he gets to load up like that.

It's a joke that Tootoo is not on this team. He adds more than Samuelsson and Cleary every time he plays.

Matthias has been on my wishlist for a couple seasons now.. He's young, affordable, works hard, and can win faceoffs. I'd love to add him.

And as you know, he is a former Red Wings draft choice, so Holland might even consider to pick him up!

We need a legitimate enforcer and a scoring powerforward imo. A powerforward is virtually impossible but I would settle for a skilled hard working guy like Callahan, Dubinsky or Matthias. The latter is perhaps a possibility as he seems to struggle a bit lately.

Jurco will be sent down. He can get more ice time in GR anyway so it is not a big deal. Sheahan however should be a regular even with a healthy team. He has outplayed all the others including Andersson. Tatar should also have a spot.

Love it when Tatar works his ass off in the offensive zone like that!

Really good win. I like Tatar/Sheahan/Jurco together, but when healthy I would like Abdelkader instead of Jurco on that line.


#2474458 Nucks vs Flames

It clearly WAS a goal.  It did clearly hit the net, which the officials didn't see, so according to the rules, play continues on, so the goal counts.

Yes I know it is a goal according to the rules, but how could the officials NOT see the puck hit the net?? There are four officials on the ice. If that is not embarrassing I dont know what is.

NHL needs to fine the Flames coach. That was bush league move to start the game. He might have had his reasons, but this makes the game look bad,

I disagree, this is rivalry. What will make the NHL look bad is the goal scored by Kronwall which clearly wasn't a goal.


#2474297 1/18 GDT: Kings 2 @ Red Wings 3 (Shootout)

Yes, i'll take the win, eventhough it should not have been a good goal. Detroit played pretty well in the third and even established some offensive pressure. I dont get why Sheahan and Tatar was split up, those two have been great together. Now if anything chemistry is more important than depth. Sheahan should be a regular by next season.

Sheahan and Tatar show some chemistry, why not keep Sheahan and demote Andersson to fourth line? Send Glendening down.

I think he deserved the stick to his face, if for no other reason for being stupid enough to skate too close to the bench. The comment that it was not a taunt is BS. There was a pretty obvious photograph of the incident where he stares right at the bench.

Great comeback win by Canada. Fun to see Mantha dominate, he obviously posesses great offensive awareness.


#2468393 Blockbuster deal?

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 30 December 2013 - 01:46 AM

Trading Howard would be unwise and a safe way to take is us out of the elite team category.


#2467288 Tootoo called up

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 23 December 2013 - 02:02 PM

What an absolute joke to send Tootoo down.
