Wow.  Another huge save by Crawford.  

 

Nice little saucerpass on the backhand by Mule. 

 

 

ANd holy crap Smith. That's bananas blocking a shot like that.

That sure didn't look offsides.  I thought everybody stayed over the line.

Franzen is having a brutal game so far.  just got outmuscled on another puck.

How many Hawks were on the ice there?  Seemed like there was 8 of them out there.

Another turnover by Mule.  

 

Great backchecking by Brunner though.

Great work by Brunner.  NIce whiff by Mule on a great scoring chance.

Yeah I think it should be a conflict of interest.  But if you're going to do it, why not Kenny Daniels?  It is a home game and he should be the play-by-play guy with Doc.

 

Ken has called some national games.  Don't think they've involved the Wings though. 

 

Other broadcasters have called national games involving the team they do the local broadcast for, like Strader calling one for the Coyotes.  But unlike Olczyk he manages to be professional and keep rampant homerism out of his broadcasting.

Just turned the game on.  Good god they're letting Edzhole call the game?  

 

They should have Mickey Redmond there instead of Pierre just to balance things out. 

 

 

 

Has he said "active stick" or pointed out the Red Wings subtle interference yet? 




#2363521 3/2 around the NHL GDT (formerly Habs Pens thread)

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 02 March 2013 - 09:33 PM

Just came here to see if anyone was watching too.  :D

 

Habs tie it up 6-6.   It's crazy how some of these games in the East just get wide open. 




#2363467 Babs on last night's D: "...best we've had all year."

To be fair, in his presser after the San Jose game Babcock singled out Kindl yet again for his play and did so without any reservations.  Two games in a row he was mentioned by name for his strong play. 

I don't disagree.  But earlier in the month he pointed out Kindl's bad play.  

 

Kindl has shown from the start he's capable of playing in this league.  For him though it seems to be the willingness and ability to do it for a whole season.  That's all I was saying.  




#2362495 2/27 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Kings 2

Given the way the two play, it's crazy that Franzen and Kopitar are the same size.  




#2361314 Clowe suspension review for coming off bench against Hawks

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 25 February 2013 - 08:21 PM

So now it wasn't coming off the bench to start a fight, but he's still suspended? 

 

It's disappointing every time Shanaban and the disciplinary committee just make crap up as they go along. 

 

If it was a legal line change, then it really wasn't much of anything to warrant 2 games.  If it wasn't, then it's 10 games.




#2360981 2/24 GDT : Canucks 3 at Red Wings 8

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 24 February 2013 - 11:49 PM

Wow.  When I left the score was tied.  I was shocked to see the outcome. 

 

Man Luongo needs to get out of Vancouver.  Sounded like he was awful tonight, but leaving him in for the whole game is telling.  As is yanking him last year against the Kings when he was playing well. 

 

Good luck with that contract though.  

 

Great to see the Wings stick it to the Canucks though!




#2360130 2/23 GDT : Nashville Predators 0 at Red Wings 4

Cleary gets a tipped garbage goal on a PP and suddenly he's awesome?  NOT!  Tatar looks like a 2nd liner, Cleary doesn't.  Tatar scored and played well even strength all night.  Cleary had a better than usual game but he gets the majority of his chances because of Dats.  Hell even Franzen can stand in front of the net.

Quote me a post where someone said he was awesome. 

 

Clearly had a good game tonight and the majority of his chances were not only because of Dats.  And like it or not he gets more time than Tatar because he can play on the PP and the PK.  Like I said before, he's a utility player. 

 

Cleary's been having a rough season but people underestimate the difference between the responsibilities of 10 minutes a night and those of 17+. 

 

Like I said before, he's not been great so far this season, but the bashing here is absurd.




#2360048 2/23 GDT : Nashville Predators 0 at Red Wings 4

He's been okay. Nice tip for the goal. But it's not like he has set the world on fire. He's ben exceptionally bad this season so he needs many more decent games before I think he has a place in the top 6.  

 

There would be a lot less Cleary 'hate' if he didn't get 20 minutes of icetime on Datsyuk's wing even when struggling badly. 

 

He was screening and frustrating Rinne on kronwall's goal.  4 SOG, a couple of which were good scoring chances. He made some really nice plays on the PK.  Great redirection for his goal, after taking a shot to the helmet earlier standing in front of the net.  Even made a nice clear when the Preds were buzzing at the end trying to spoil Jimmy's shutout. 

 

If it were anyone but Clearly, people would be saying he had a great game.
