#2227920 Crosby coming back

Posted by SDavis35 on 20 November 2011 - 05:21 PM

Hopefully he still plays as well as he did when he left. Don't like him, but I'm hoping this teaches him how valuable the game is, and if we pray real hard... he'll be humble in returning.


#2225079 Ryan Miller's opinion on Milan Lucic

It's funny cause no one on Buffalo is going to take on Lucic and if they did I'm pretty sure Lucic would wipe the floor with them. Regardless blah stuff like this happens. Glad to see Miller wasn't injured but if goalies leave the crease like that to play the puck imo they should be fair game.

Miller is very lucky he didn't connect with his stick there, it looked to me like he swung that goalie stick around like he was going for a Mcsorley....which is more of a piece s*** move if you ask imo don't skate to the hash marks, at Lucic of all people.


#2225041 Ryan Miller's opinion on Milan Lucic

What makes me scratch my head is the attitude of many goalies, and how they feel they cannot be touched - even when they're outta their crease as Miller was.

Miller is one of my favourite goalies here but f*** it, I like what Lucic did. Goalies get enough protection in the crease and around it. They don't deserve to go for a skate that far up the ice and expect to be protected as they aren't protecting the net at that point (otherwise the argument is the goalie being anywhere on the ice is considered protecting the net), they're playing the puck as any other skater. Lucic doing that, while infuriating him, lets him know that next time the puck is that far up the ice, Miller is taking a risk by going for a skate so far up the ice, and he just might think twice. I don't think goalie interference applies to that, even less do I think it's charging the goaltender. Lucic is finishing a hit on a player skating far away from his net to play the puck and not playing goal.

The reaction by Miller and Ruff is over the top.

Agreed.

#2224298 Philly v. Tampa

Looks to me like Philly is just too ***** to bring the puck up ice. Who cares what kind of D they're playing.

#2218021 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by Kira on 24 October 2011 - 08:48 PM

I hate to be mean but I honestly and truly can't conjure up a whole lot of sympathy. I'm sure it is painful and all, I get that, but it's Chris Pronger, for crying out loud - how am I supposed to feel sorry for him????


#2218019 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by vladdy16 on 24 October 2011 - 08:41 PM

If it's not a heart-stopping puck to the chest, I find it difficult to work up a whole lot of sympathy.
The video is pretty choppy for me, but it looks like the puck caught him in the ear. His left hand goes to the right side of his head. That's gotta hurt, Bob.

I've watched it 5 or 6 times, but it skips quite a bit. From I can tell, it looks like the puck hits him going past. There is no blood on his jersey or the ice, no one is holding a towel to his face. He falls quickly, but you have to admit that's not surprising. From what I could see and hear, my perception remains the same; he's not seriously injured, and damn that had to hurt. If there's a better angle or the current video isn't so choppy at a later date and it proves otherwise, I'll retract my statement and issue one appropriate for the circumstances. Until then, lots of ice and Motrin.

Stay classy Wings fans. :thumbdown:

He dropped like a ton of bricks and you can hear him screaming as he goes into the dressing room holding his face. Clearly this was more than a little cut.

I don't wish him ill and I'm not thrilled he got hit with a puck, but it didn't hit him in the face, so there's no danger of a broken jaw or orbital bone, so he'll be okay. It also didn't sound like he was "screaming" getting off the ice, even though the announcer says so. All I heard was a few "ah, ah, ah"s. He's fine. I'll bet money on it. Maybe a few stitches, but I don't think there's even any chance of concussion on that one, hence pretty much a lack of sympathy other than an "Ouch, that had to hurt" kind of thing.

#2208864 What can be done to go East?

Posted by Nhurdi on 22 September 2011 - 01:47 PM

I guess the people that FEEL like the Wings should stay in the West have never traveled back and forth to the West Coast. Jet Lag is a ***** and it makes you exhausted for days.

If we move east, our injuries will go down and our energy will go up. I believe it would improve our record by about five wins in a season.



Interesting, here is one of my own thoughts based on about the same stuff you base your opinion on.

If Detroit moves East they will become weaker. We will become complacent and won't work as hard. We will easily lose 5 wins in a season due to playing in a weaker conference which breeds weaker teams.

Detroit has been doing just fine in the West I'm sure we can all agree. Just thinking from memory we have had:

6 Presidents Trophies
20 straight Playoff appearances
8 Western Conference Final Appearances
6 Stanley cup Final Appearances
4 Cups

But that jet lag is killing us.


#2208479 What can be done to go East?

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 September 2011 - 04:29 PM

I liked the idea Bettman was kicking around moving Winnipeg west (obvious) with Detroit AND Columbus both moving East. That would make it exactly the same as MLB. That would put 16 in the East and 14 in the West. Works fine in the MLB, it would work wonderful in the NHL. Say what you will about the West rivals "needing" Detroit in the West, in the end, it's all about money and TV ratings, and people will tune in to watch Detroit/Montreal/Toronto/Rangers/Pittsburgh/Bruins all play each other more than Detroit playing Phoenix. Besides, Chicago is the new big name in the West , so they can take on that roll of selling out the seats in the West. Vancouver is great, San Jose, Anaheim are always a good draw. There are plenty of teams in the West that are good to great, they don't 'Need" Detroit. I want to see that Detroit/Chicago Stanley Cup Finals next year, so I am all for moving East!


#2204377 Crosby's 2012 Season now in Question

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 18 August 2011 - 04:42 PM

it's pretty pathetic that some of you would wish to see one of the best point producers and most talented players in the nhl never take step on the ice again just because you're still bitter about a SCF loss a few years ago.

all this talk about his "character" make it seem like he's sean avery.

get a grip.

also, LOL at maltby "not being a ******". talk about homer-goggles at their worst.

Your posts make me laugh. So funny.

As for Crosby's "GREAT" character what do you say about other players in the league saying the same thing that has been said here about how he acts or conducts himself?

I think we should all take note on how money and playing a game for a living doesn't stop depression.

I know most of us could not comprehend killing yourself when you were to make 700k for playing hockey for the year.

I most likely wouldn't make 700k in my lifetime if the economy doesn't improve, but apparently he was more likely to kill himself... I think this is a good lesson in priorities. Take care of your relationships and family, it is far more important than some money.
