#2400747 former Red Wings stars join rec-leaguers for game

Posted by Nightfall on 09 May 2013 - 08:25 PM

I played in a charity event against the Red Wings Alumni back in 2003 and that was awesome.  This experience would be just as fun IMHO.  I would love my rec hockey team to have an experience like this.

LOL.

 

You never stop trolling with this bandwagon crap do you?  

 

Sharks bus?

 

Just as the negative nancys never stop with calling a series lost after their team goes down 3-2.  Adversity is what makes sports great.  I certainly wish I could crap all over the Wings when they go down in a series or lose a game, but I just can't do it.

it's been a good series, Detroit.

 

I am sure you were saying the opposite when Detroit beat Pittsburgh in the 09 cup finals to take a 3-2 series lead.  Oh wait, Pittsburgh won game 6 at home and 7 on Detroit ice to win the cup.  Nevermind.....

 

Gut check time for Detroit.  We will see how they react in game 6.

I have to commend the refs.  They are letting the players play.  Especially with all the falling that is going on out there.

Ref waved it off, but I could see that counting under review.

 

That looked good to me as well.  Lets put it this way, if the roles were reversed, Wings fans would be bitching about it.  We pushed the player into the net and that could have been a good goal.

That might be the series there.

 

Blowing so many good chances to put them away, and now it's a tied game.  

 

Series tied 2-2 and we are calling the series on a tie game in game 5 at the end of the second period?  Please.....

You have to win the faceoff first.  

 

Yup, they have won 2x more faceoffs than we have.  Thats not good.

i wonder how this would play out if the refs swallowed the whistle

 

No complaints on the reffing so far from me tonight.  The calls have all been legit and they are letting the players play.  Wings have got to play more disciplined.

Excellent save by our "average" goalie.  :D

Feel bad for the people who paid to watch them at the Joe.  

 

This right here.  That was a piss poor performance by the Wings.




#2394430 WCQF Game 2 GDT - Red Wings 5 @ Ducks 4 OT (Series tied, 1-1)

Posted by Nightfall on 02 May 2013 - 10:39 PM

That could have been a call there. 

 

There are at least 10 "could have been calls" that I have counted so far.  Some against the Wings, and some against the Ducks.  The refs are not calling it consistent thats for sure.




#2393380 Players who showboat after scoring

Posted by Nightfall on 01 May 2013 - 08:20 PM

It depends on what your definition of "showboat" is as well.  Do you count celebrating after OT goals?

 

The Wings have Tatar who has showboated a bit in the past.

 

 

Personally, celebrating after a goal is fine with me.  The Pascal goal is fine.  Same with the Yakupov (sp) goal earlier this year when he went out to center and celebrated.  Then you have Theo Fleury who has scored many goals with celebration.  I have no issues with it.




#2393224 Howard = Average

Added because Elite goalies don't do things like this:

 

http://www.cbc.ca/sp...blackhawks.html

 

 

2. Chicago's overtime victory came mere moments after St. Louis's own 2-1 OT win over the Los Angeles Kings. The Blues dominated the defending Stanley Cup champions and held a 1-0 lead for most of the game, before Justin Williams tied the game with seconds remaining in the third. Kings netminder Jonathan Quick made 40 saves and helped carry Los Angeles to overtime, but a costly blunder gave Blues winger Alex Steen a wide open net for the winner.

 

The Patrick Roy statue of liberty gaffe comes to mind.  Roy is widely considered to be one of the best.  The elite of the elite.  Yet, he showboated and it cost his team the game and the series.  Elite goalies are human, and they do make mistakes.




#2392540 WCQF - (8) Wild vs. (1) Blackhawks

Posted by Nightfall on 30 April 2013 - 08:18 PM

No, I really would have said the same thing if it was the other team. I am sick of the refs inconsistencies. Let the play go. I am not saying Chicago should have gotten a penalty either.

 

As someone who referees hockey, that could have been called either way without the use of instant replay.  Even when i see the replay, I see a penalty on Parise.  No doubt in my mind.  That "shove" wouldn't have knocked a 3 year old down.  Parise just used it as an excuse to hit the goalie.

 

The Hawks suck a big one.  I certainly hope that the Hawks and Pens get knocked out before the finals.  That being said, the Wild have to play smarter if they want to win the series.




#2391911 Howard = Average

Posted by Nightfall on 29 April 2013 - 11:08 PM

He's shown otherwise lately. Let's see how he holds up when it counts!!!

 

I would find it even a little refreshing if you would just admit that you jumped the gun and you made a mistake instead of saying "well, we will see how he does now".
