#2511350 4/18 ECQF Game 1 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Bruins 0. DET leads series 1-0

Posted by haroldsnepsts on Today, 12:18 AM

Datsyuk just took the saying "you can't make a bad pass to a good player" to a whole new level

Wings doing a good job not engaging with the dirtbags Marchand and Lucic.  


Smith looked like he was getting into it a little, but mostly kept his cool.

Holy crap.  Great job Red Wings.  


wow.   They not only won, they looked good.

#2509826 ECQF - Series A - Bruins versus Red Wings

This is awesome.  "When all else fails, why NOT support a historic franchise with excellent coaching, solid young player development, and consistently sane management"?  Yes:  Detroit.  No: Philadelphia. 


Truer words were never spoken. 


I like "how much assholery does rescuing puppies make up for?"  


If you choose "A lot" then you can root for the Blues (Backes being the a-hole in question). 

#2509809 WCQF - Series H - San Jose versus Los Angeles

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 15 April 2014 - 12:03 PM

I haven't seen as much of the Kings as usual this season, but come playoff time it's a matter of if Quick will elevate his game (which he likely will) and if they'll be able to score goals (which who knows).  It's crazy how a team with as much offensive talent as the Kings can go through such scoring droughts. 


Even it weren't against LA though I'd be rooting against the sharks.  Something about putting a marine animal on the front of a jersey seems to lead to more diving. 


Go Kings!

#2509422 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 13 April 2014 - 06:16 PM

If you think back to the whole season it's Zetterberg, for all the reasons Nev stated.  


Nyquist is a very close second, also for all the reasons Nev stated.  He got crazy hot for two and a half months, but that isn't the same as being the team's MVP to me. 


A honorary mention to Dekeyser.  Where would our defense be had this kid not fallen into Detroit's lap? 

#2508302 Puck Daddy: Trotz is probably out in Nashville

Honestly, this is the second time a Tennessee topic was created on this forum. The first one was closed. I understand that this is hockey related - however, even though the Nashville Predators forum was closed, this shouldn't be your second home for Nashville Predators discussion.

#2507673 bashing skid the kid

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 09 April 2014 - 02:04 PM

Just because you don't like someone and you make a comment in a thread that its welcomed in doesn't mean I compare him to my jilted ex-girlfriend. But it is funny how he does get compared to a "girl"friend and not some sook of a boyfriend.


I wasn't directing that comment at any specific one post.  Like I said, I think he's the best player in the league but I still pretty much cant' stand him. 


But I also don't go seeking out videos about him that will only irritate me.  Especially when one of the biggest complaints is about how much attention he gets.   It's like drinking spoiled milk repeatedly and then asking someone else to drink it.  "Doesn't this taste awful!  Here, have some!"


I prefer to go the route of "He Who Shall Not Be Named" when it comes to Crosby.

Well said.  Although Yzerman was pure class most of the time, Stevie was quite the whiner too back in his younger days and had a bit of a temper. (Of course no Wings fan would ever admit to that!)  But like Crosby and the rest of us, he matured and figured it out.  He's just lucky the internet wasn't around then with fans with too much time on their hands.  


Because it's not true.  He had a temper, but In his younger days Yzerman was as softspoken as Datsyuk.  It wasn't until he felt comfortable in the league and in his role as captain that he wouldn't hesitate to let the refs and other players know how he felt.  


I don't remember him doing anything approaching Crosby's antics his first few seasons, but the league was also different back then in terms of exposure. And there were no internet forums to pick apart his every word.


That being said, the Crosby obsession has reached jilted ex-girlfriend status here.  A lot of those clips were from 4 years ago or more.  I can't stand the guy when the Wings play him, but I don't think about him otherwise.  Regardless he's still the best player in the league.  


People also forget Crosby said this: 


(skip to 1:55 so you don't have to look at his stupid face any longer than necessary)


#2507146 Apparently it can get worse in Vancouver.

@Real_ESPNLeBrun: Hearing whispers change coming sooner rather than later in VAN, perhaps as soon as today or tomorrow...” Hearing same.



I try not to be this way because what comes around goes around, but I must admit that after my bad experiences with Nucks fans in person and on the internets a couple years back (when they won the presidents trophy and acted as if they were a dynasty), it's hard not to enjoy the absolute implosion taking place over there.  

#2506982 Flyers' Rinaldo to have hearing for hit on Ruhwedel.

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 07 April 2014 - 01:07 PM

Not to mention he jumped into his head for an unnecessary hit.  Remember, Rinaldo got suspended for jumping into Ericsson's head.


And only a week before that hit he was fined twice for two cheapshots in the same game, which was an NHL first.   He's also been tossed from a game for jumping a player who didn't want to fight and punching him when he was lying on the ice.




He's a dirty player who just doesn't get it and is on his way to being the new Matt Cooke.  

#2506506 Backes on playing against Malkin and Crosby

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 April 2014 - 07:57 PM

For people wondering what I have against Backes, it's crap like this. 


St. Louis losing 3-0 with a little over 5 minutes left in the third period, Backes gets outmuscled by Mackinnon so he gets up and drops the gloves on the 18 year old rookie, pushes him down, then punches him when he's on the ice.  


Then there's Jackhole playing the toughguy with some gloved punches when a ref is right there. 




I would want to root for St. Louis, but just can't with those two d-bags on the roster. 

#2505524 Iginla-Rinaldo Fight

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 03 April 2014 - 01:03 PM

I think Iggy's own teammate screwed him up by trying to get involved right as Rinaldo is throwing haymakers, but as much as I don't like Rinaldo it's hard to feel sorry for Iginla when he's going after a him for a clean hit.  Had the refs not stepped in when they did I'm guessing Iginla would've squared things up a bit.  


I don't get why NBC would keep talking about it though.  Iggy got caught with a couple good punches and knocked down, the refs stepped in. 

#2503966 Is this the worst "fight" of all time?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 30 March 2014 - 07:12 PM

Better than most staged fights...

#2503965 3/30 GDT - Lightning 2 @ Red Wings 3

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 30 March 2014 - 07:10 PM




What's hilarious is the ref let the first two penalties go and finally called the third one.
