#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.

But he'll grow on ya.

Wow. You might want to get a CT scan. And soon.

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.

#2120096 Osgood's status could prompt trade at deadline

Posted by mackel on 21 February 2011 - 10:48 PM

I beg to differ and so does his career .900 save percentage and 2.9 GAA. He's on an amazing 6 game win streak right now, but less we forget his 5-10-1 start to the season with a staggering .82 save percentage. Plus, he is the Devils starter as MB30 is trying to get back into the game. Even if he was available, he's one of the last goalies I'd want.

You may want to put your comments into perspective... He's never played on a truly good team (career) and as for a bad start with the Devils this year, just look at that team as a whole early on and you'll be able to figure out where you went wrong in your analysis.

#2119978 Jonathan Ericsson Watch Thread

Posted by Heaten on 21 February 2011 - 03:59 PM

Aside from his bone headed passes, I thought he's looked solid. Isn't this only in his 2nd year in the NHL? After reading some posts here, you'd think he was a 10 year veteran who won't ever develop. I'm sure he won't have any problems finding a contract next season with any other team in the NHL. But I'm sure Holland re-signs him.

Those who think Smith will be the savior on defense, he's not very good either.

#2119952 Hudler Haters - Don't let facts get in the way...

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 21 February 2011 - 02:24 PM

yes, he had a HORRIBLE start, but more than a quarter of the season since - look at the numbers:
Over the last 22 games:
22GP 5G 14A 19P +5

Some people will continue to hate him, but as was touched on in last nights telecast, Cleary, Datsyuk and Hudler have developed some amazing chemistry and that pass last night to Dats was pure beauty...

Hate all you want, but it's really starting to look like the guy just needed to get back up to NHL speed, and he has been one of our best players over the last 20+ games...

this is more or less what i said in another post about hudler. he was baggage for the first 30ish games and then remembered how to play NHL hockey again. the real test for hudler though is to be useful in the playoffs. his disappearing act in 2009 was epic and will hopefully not happen again this year. he's playing good, but still has alot to improve. he's 27 and has 1 good season under his belt. hopefully his near point a game pace continues and he proves he's a valuable part of this organization.

#2119644 Bettman threatens Edmonton.

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 20 February 2011 - 04:38 PM

He doesn't sound threatening to me. Maybe I'm not reading between the lines enough, but it sounds to me like somebody asked him what he thought of the situation, so he gave them an honest answer, which is that he agrees Edmonton needs a new arena. I agree that it's none of his business what the taxpayers and government of Edmonton decide to do with their money, and the fact that he IS putting his nose in Quebec City's business bugs me, but it doesn't sound like it's gotten to that point yet here. It sounds like it's the Oilers who are forcing the city to do something by saying they won't play at Rexall Place after the lease is up in 2014.

Somehow I really doubt the Oilers would leave Edmonton. Don't they have some of the best attendance numbers in the league, percentage-wise? I mean, I would imagine that's why Bettman wants them to build a new stadium, right? If the Oilers can suck that bad and still fill 17,000 seats, those are some enthusiastic people you've got there, so why not see what you can do with 20,000 seats? I mean, I know QC has some enthusiastic fans, too, but hey, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. It makes a lot more sense to me (at least in my pea brain) to take a team like Phoenix, who has awful attendance, and relocate it, rather than doing the Canadian Team Shuffle.

Maybe he was under the impression that there was a strike and the season started in January.

#2116442 Draper the goal scorer

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 February 2011 - 01:24 PM


Draper should retire. He's played better this season than I thought, but there's younger and bigger guys we need on our 4th line. Draper is not going to be around for much longer anyway.

He's been a staple of this organization longer than anyone but Lidstrom, however, it's time to move on.

Why would you celebrate someone's head injury?
