#2582737 Statistical view of 3 on 3 OT

Posted by DickieDunn on 18 March 2015 - 01:28 PM

Ideal would be 4 on 4, then 3 on 3, then the shootout, and if you lose the game, you get nothing regardless of if it's regulation, OT, or shootout.  The current system awards teams that are good in the shootout instead of just good, and the 1 point was meant to divide the games in case of a tie.  The next best would be make every game 3 points.  3 for regulation win, 2 for OT win, 1 for OT loss.  But that would make teams less bunched up and reduce the parity a little bit and Buttman doesn't want that.

When Franzen comes back, this team will be scary.  


The team right now is quick and hard working. The complete opposite of Franzens game at this stage in his career.

Zidlicky and Cole were both great tonight, Howard was the best player. What a deadly W, 3 game win streak!

Agreed, three W's in a row.... Wait a minute, Toronto can't put three W's together in a row, how do they even have a website? (Sorry, couldn't resist).

*Crawford enters the dressing room* "Tatar's shot was bull****"
Kane sits quietly, avoiding eye contact.


#2566207 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 January 2015 - 06:46 PM

Mantha - Larkin - Pulkkinen

Tatar - Sheahan - Nyquist




In 4-5 years, who wouldn't want to have that as a top 6?


I know I am all about making trades for no reason :ninja:  but honestly, lets upgrade through attrition. Unless something outrageous falls into our lap I like the direction the team is going from within... (of course if that top puck moving defenseman becomes available...then....aw crap! Back to indecision!!!!)

I've heard that Hall walks into bars in Edmonton and literally says "Who's gonna F*** me tonight???"
Forgot where I heard this, heard it like a year ago, but it wouldn't surprise me if it's true. He's probably the biggest star in the entire city.

I heard last time the Pens were there Crosby stood up and yelled "me! Me!"

#2556917 Datsyuk vs Nyquist

f*** Nyquist, marry Datsyuk, kill Franzen.

Nailed it.

#2555841 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by rick zombo on 11 December 2014 - 03:23 PM

I love Babcock. Always have.


But if he goes to Pittsburgh or Toronto I wish him nothing but complete and total disasterous failure, and I hope he never touches the Stanley Cup. Maybe I'm being petty. But  f***  Pittsburgh and  f***  Toronto.

#2555780 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 December 2014 - 09:42 AM

What happens if Howard and Helm face each other in practice on a breakaway, over and over again?


The resistible force versus the movable object.   :lol:

#2555040 Honest question for everyone.

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 December 2014 - 04:56 AM

Just when I think I have it all down, I know it all, I can make bold predictions that come true, I take Jonathan Cheechoo in the 2nd round of my fantasy hockey draft and finish in dead last place. 


There is a fact in that amusing (and true) statement, that even as incredible as one player can look for one or two week, up to two full seasons, there is always the chance that they flop, fall off, stop producing, lose that "spark" to the point where I am not only very reserved on my predictions and statements about players, I only find comfort in those like Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Lidstrom that have proven time and time again for most of their career that they just have it.


On LGW here, we see many sides of a lot of fans, those who still aren't convinced about a lot of our players, to those who debated and argued for a year about Brunner and Clarkson being on this team or not, just to see them inevitably flop hard and become terrible acquisitions for the teams they signed with. Yet a lot were tooth and nail convinced they were the answer, Clarkson after one good season was worth 5 million to bring in here and take the place of some of the youth that eventually came up like Nyquist and Tatar. If you look on it now, which I can safely say 30% of the LGW community wanted us to have Brunner and Clarkson right now, what position would we be in if both were signed to 4-5 year conctracts keeping Nyquist and Tatar in the minors?


But the fact is, no one knows what the future will bring. We make predictions on our observations as fans, sometimes they are right, a lot of times they are wrong. It's part of the spine that makes a forum posting sports fan thrive, it sparks our conversations and debates, disagreements and arguments. We like to act like we know everything, that management is moronic and we could run the team better than the real higher ups do, but at the end of the day we are just passionate fans with strong opinions on the team that we dedicate a portion of our life watching, loving, and talking about who are more often wrong than we care to admit.

sidenote: How the hell is it that Minnesota landed the Olsen twins and then Vanek and Pominville and STILL have more capspace than us and 23 other teams? Sheesh! I know they have more ELC's on their roster, but it just doesn't seem fair...


Actually it's completely fair.  Besides I'm not sure what you're so jealous of.  The Wild don't look great this year.


No doubt the RW's O is playing well. We are healthy and playing mostly at home vs. weak teams. Keep piling up the points while we can. We all know this will turn later on. We have a 7 out of 9 road game stretch coming up soon. can we play .500 or better on the road? If we do we will have a nice points total at the end of the year-baring major injuries of course.


Holy Hell...Cheer up dude! 

#2553090 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by kipwinger on 01 December 2014 - 03:21 PM

Every time I say something isn't working on this team, they turn around and make it work.  Inconsistency?  They win four in a row.  Too many centers on the team?  Offense starts scoring like gangbusters.  Powerplay's a mess?  Top ten in the league.


So I guess what I'm saying is...they will absolutely, positively, not win the Stanley Cup in decisive fashion in front of a home crowd while Kid Rock and I are in the front row (surrounded by strippers) getting hammered drunk.  Nope, not at all.

Helm-Datsyuk-Weiss (Cleary)

Well well well, babcock.... does this make helm no longer the best third line center in the league?   :ninja:

#2544762 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by The Secret on 27 October 2014 - 05:48 PM

I posted it a few pages back, but here it is again.



Wow... this made me really really mad. I've tried to defend Holland as much as I possibly can but if I could i would kick him straight in the twig n' berries then make him like a piece of white dog poo. Why is he toying with this? 5 years at 5 million should be the easiest money he has ever spent and the best idea he has ever had.... if he screws up this and Babcock leaves for a measly few million dollars...has a Hossa'ish tinge to it. Jeez, He paid Samuelsson 3 million didn't he? To sit on the bench and rub his sore titty? WAKE UP HOLLAND!!! GUHDAMMET!!!!

#2544901 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Posted by Jersey Wing on 28 October 2014 - 08:02 PM

I fear Weiss is headed to the Island of Misfit Red Wings toys to join a water gun that squirts jelly, Bill Ranford, Uwe Krupp, Mike Modano, a spotted elephant, Robert Lang, Wendel Clark, Derian Hatcher, and a cowboy who rides an ostrich.
