#2128969 Crosby's family trying to convice him to retire?

Posted by Hockeytown0001 on 11 March 2011 - 05:10 PM

I would be disappointed if that were to happen. Crosby is a whiner, but he's also a phenomenal talent. It would be a shame for his career to end so early.


#2128943 Crosby's family trying to convice him to retire?

The ice yes, and all the interviews that have been crammed our way and all that s*** too. I'm ready for him to be gone.


Well then you're looking to be offended by him. And despite what you posted earlier, you're simply not capable of distinguishing between his in game or post game stuff (of which he can be very douchey) and his off the ice stuff where he is very well spoken, humble and gracious.

Not that we need to go scouring the internet for more Crosby but the videos are out there. Away from the ice he seems like just another young, talented, aw shucks kind of hockey kid. Hockey is known for this. This isn't the NBA.

In game, that's one thing. No debating that. Away from the game, I have nothing bad to say about the kid. Handles himself exceptionally well in interviews and has done so since he was 18. That's my opinion anyway.

If he is forced to retire by his family that would be great, I hate that f*****.


LGW, keeping it classy.

Sheesh man, it's just hockey.


#2130526 Lemieux proposes fines to teams for player suspensions

Posted by toby91_ca on 15 March 2011 - 02:35 PM

k... lemme try this from a different angle.

How would you classify these players?
Matt Cooke, Trevor Gillies, Jody Shelly, Eric Godard, Rick Rypien, Tom Kostopoulos

They are the worst offenders of the year.

I'm not sure what point you are trying to make though. Let's take those players as examples:

- Cooke - suspended for hitting from behind
- Gillies - suspended for head shots, two separate times
- Shelley - suspended for hit from behind and for sucker punch
- Godard - suspended for leaving the bench to fight
- Rypien - suspended for altercation with fan
- Kostopoulos - suspended for head shot

I think the idea is that you'd try and get the teams to influence their players not to engage in this type of activity. I doubt you'd have many teams have issue with trying to ensure it's players don't: hit from behind, deliver head shots, sucker punch people or fight with fans. It's a tough sport and sometimes things happen so fast it is tough to avoid, but a lot of the times, it's the matter of making a good decision rather than sucker punching someone or purposely take a shot at someone's head, etc.

can you assholes hold this lead now?


#2129455 3/11 GDT: Oilers 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by Firehawk on 12 March 2011 - 10:12 AM

So Howard does one better than last time and keeps it down to one goal against, and we're STILL complaining about him? Yeah, he really sucks, doesn't he? I can't believe he let in that one whole soft goal. I mean, there's no reason he couldn't have got us a shutout so that the rest of the team could've taken the night off...what a lazy bum. Trade him.


LOL. And if the wings hadn't miraculously scored a goal by pure luck hit 2 edm players, the wings would have lost on arguably the worst goal Howard has given up this year.

Look at the big picture there pal. Howard has a horrid GAA and a horrid SV%.

I agree. If you want real hockey talk, go over to the hfboards. The hockey fans there are much more down to earth and its refreshing. I come here to discuss the games with fans of the team I love, but it seems here, too many red wings fans have brain damage.

Howard let in one bad goal. Hell, its a goal I let in probably once every two weeks. Anyway, he rebounds and plays solid, yet still gets the shaft. Just further proof of the lofty expectations that wings fans here have on their goalies. In order for a goalie to be great here, 3 of the 4 things must happen every game.

1. A shutout
2. No rebounds
3. Less than 1.50 GAA
4. Greater than a .945 Save Percentage

Print this out and circle the ones that are applicable. If you can't circle 3, he is a bad goalie and should be traded.

This is the most retarded post I've seen here in awhile.

First, don't compare yourself to Howard LOL. You're not an NHL goalie dude, so you are expected to let soft goals in. Second, Howard doesn't play solid. Howard has a horrible GAA. The real fact remains that the wings have not played well and have not been consistent at all over a long period of time, yet you're focused on a very lucky win yesterday, against the 3rd worst team in the league.

People would be singing a very different tune today if we hadn't gotten purely lucky at the end there, VERY DIFFERENT. It would have been a 1-0 loss on the worst goal Howard's ever given up, and people would have been down on the wings offense, and their continued lack of defense, and continued lack of 60 minute play.

IT WAS EDMONTON! Actually, it wasn't even Edmonton, it was the AHL Edmonton team. It was a joke that the wings couldn't score any goals against that team yesterday.

LOOK at the big picture.

Nothing against Nick but Dats should have been the #1 star


He was pretty awful for most of the game.


#2127731 Chara's hit on Pacioretty

great news. crybaby LGWers in tatters.

I'm gonna catch hell for saying this, but for once I agree with the league.


#2127402 Chara's hit on Pacioretty

Posted by Rick Zombos Ghost on 08 March 2011 - 10:38 PM

this looked like interference and no more... i know this wont be a particularly popular opinion. this play happens once a year and everyone mentions how dumb the rink design is and then nothing gets done.
another link to the video since that ones gone.....



#2127398 Chara's hit on Pacioretty

Posted by e_prime on 08 March 2011 - 10:29 PM


History aside, it looked like intent to injure. Obviously if he was just going to rub him against the boards and Pacs hit the stantion, then I'd think other wise, but Chara made sure he actually threw Pacs into the stantion. Just look at the replay, you can clearly see him throw him into it. You don't need to be a dirty player to let your emotions get the best of you. look at Bertuzzi, he was never a dirty player and just that one incident will forever label him as a dirty player when we all know he isn't.

Hell, even LePuke wasn't a dirty player, but that one incident he lost his brain and smushed Draper. Players can have a relatively clean career and still do something dirty.


Not that I don't appreciate A LOT of the video work that you do but, not that you've even broken this hit down, if you look at video hard enough, you can see whatever you want to see out of it.

The game is played in a speed faster than replay, screenshots, and slow-motion...

There are certainly a lot of players out there that deliberately make bad decisions or premeditated actions on the ice that lead to injury.

Other players also make split second decisions that involve injury whether there is intent or not.

As I said in the previous thread, I think Chara's received all the punishment he'll get. 5 minutes for interference. Game Misconduct.

I'll leave it at that...

Except to disagree and say that Claude was a terribly dirty player... although just like Chara's hit tonight, I'm not sure he meant to rub Draper out into the boards like that.


#2126852 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by Copenhagen848 on 06 March 2011 - 07:48 PM

I know you're angry that the Wings haven't been so dominant as to erase from your mind any possibility that you may end up disappointed, but maybe you'll at least look into the past for data.


I can't comment on this, because I have absolutely no idea what this is supposed to mean. I think you were trying to say something intelligent in a smart-ass sort of way?

Please don't bother responding.


#2124142 I've decided-Datsyuk for Captain

Posted by CaliWingsNut on 01 March 2011 - 10:26 AM

So... the person w/ a username and avatar honoring Datsyuk, thinks he should be the next captain. What a shocker.

Z has been groomed for the role for many years now. Sorry.

We don't even know if Lidstrom is retiring. Way to push the 2011 Norris candidate out the door.

He needs to agree to becoming more consistent.


#2121917 Ericsson vs Ott

Posted by newfy on 25 February 2011 - 01:01 AM

OK so can someone here explain how this somehow hurt our team instead of letting our powerplay do something?

Ott would have beat the crap outta Franzen luckily Ericcson knows how to handle himself for games like this.
