#2377187 3/31 GDT: Blackhawks 7 Red Wings 1

It's amazing how long Franzen literally stands in place in the offensive zone.

I understand why from the Hawks perspective, but doesn't the intensity level make it kind of look like a pick up game?

i never knew zetterberg was such a leader and such a defensive threat

With him gone you can see how much the Hawks are able to key in on Dats.  He's the only other real threat, other than the rare time Franzen feels like it.

Sammy with a big hit. I didn't expect that.

One of the few good things about Sammy is he annoys the other team as much as he does Wings fans.

#2376740 Iginla Traded to Pittsburgh

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 31 March 2013 - 11:02 AM

The Iginla story is 100 % the reason, why I never trust sources till its official. Flames had to ask Iginla, he used is right and said no I want to play with Pittsburgh for me personally it didn't change one bit of my mind about him, he is a class act on and off the ice and deserves his name on a cup.


Jay Feaster should know the rules regarding NMC/NTC contracts, don't confirm anything before speaking to the player and getting his ok, can't be that hard to do?

Honestly of two minds about Iginla.  I'd want him on the Wings and believe he's a class act off the ice but I wouldn't really call him one on it. 


The guy has a ton of heart and is a great player, but more than once when Calgary is losing I've watched him skate around cheapshotting Wings players trying to engage them in a fight.  And it's usually top end guys who dont' fight.  


When someone chases Mattheiu Schneider the length of the rink towards the end of the game, repeatedly crosschecking him in the back wanting to fight him, I have a hard time calling that player a class act. 

#2376409 Crosby left the game after puck to the face

Edited the thread title to be less obnoxious.


I understand not liking Crosby, but celebrating that he got hit in the face with the puck is lame.

I see where your coming from. I would 100% agree if it was just some thing out of left field but there is pretty solid evidence its not. I interact with people with substance abuse issues on a daily basis. Its pretty easy to tell there were times where Murph was not sober while on the job. Its not speculation. When you know what your looking at its fact. 

Oh and on the Keating thing. He really needs to go. I was able to convert my girl from a Rangers fan to a die hard Wings fan over the last two seasons. John Keating almost derailed the whole thing as pregames and intermissions with him would make her want to go do something else. 

It's still not fact. 


It's speculation.  Informed opinion at best.  Still not fact. 

#2375991 Which NHLer is the....

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 29 March 2013 - 01:08 PM

I understand that he's young, but I've only got 2 years on him - so it's not as though I'm some out of touch grouch. I've gone to parties, but no, I've never gotten fall down drunk at one. I've also never exploited my star status into being the center of attention at any parties.


Comparing our lives isn't really fair or necessary, we live two totally different ones. That said, he comes across like a ****. If he were a regular guy with the same track record I would consider him just another *******, which is worthy of his clown designation in my book.


Agreed.  If you asked fans across the NHL who was the biggest clown/d-bag in the league, Kane would be a frontrunner.


There's plenty of young guys in the NHL, but he still manages to stand out as one of the the biggest idiots.

Matt, who pays for the considerable financial costs to run this site out of his own pocket, doesn't want to risk even the off chance he'd be exposed legally by people here be discussing illegal streaming/pirating services.  Hence it is against forum rules to discuss it openly in threads.


Is there a problem with that?  Or did you just forget how to spell temporarily?

#2374497 Backhand shelf blog: Systems Analyst

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 26 March 2013 - 09:24 PM

For those interested, this is a pretty good blog I ran across. 


He's an ex hockey player (I think played some level of pro) who breaks down the nuts and bolts of hockey strategy, often in hilarious fashion. 




He seems to cover Eastern teams more than West, but it's still a great read. 


Here's an old play breakdown he did on a Datsyuk goal. 





(to be clear, I have no affiliation with this blog.  I just thought it was cool)

#2374457 Larry Murphy Fired by FSD

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 26 March 2013 - 06:51 PM

People are speculating that Murph got fired for being a drunk and now some are suggesting that McCarty take over?  I've personally in a bar with McCarty a few tables over while he got loaded.  Not really sure if the "pawn star" is the right way to go here. 



As much as I liked the guy as a player compared to Mac, Murph is articulate and polished. 

#2373873 Semin re-signs with Carolina: 5 years, $35 million ($7M/yr)

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 25 March 2013 - 07:23 PM

OMG, overpayment!!!!!!!!!!




:hehe:   Sorry, I had to say LGW favorite phrase when another team makes "any" signing.  



exactly.  If every signing is overpayment, then it's not actually overpaying.  It just means that's what the free agent market costs.

#2373856 Semin re-signs with Carolina: 5 years, $35 million ($7M/yr)

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 25 March 2013 - 06:23 PM

I haven't really watched Carolina this season but from what I've heard he's been big for them this year.  Leading all forwards in minutes, playing well on the PP.  8 goals and 30 points in 30 games.  


I think this year was the biggest risk, but getting him out of Washington seems to have done wonders.  For whatever reason it sounds like that lockerroom turned on him.  Funny how a lot of the things he was chastised for are now happening with other players on the Caps.  *cough* AO *cough*

How's about that Homer-type tip-in?!    :lol:

i know!  Good on Cleary, not so much for scoring the goal but making me look like I know what I'm talking about.  :P
