#2244909 1/12 GDT : Coyotes 2 at Red Wings 3 (SO)

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 12 January 2012 - 09:22 PM

So true, would love to bring in a big fourth line guy to handle guys like him who take runs when there is no push back

I think it's safe to say Babcock would too.


Babcock was asked if he takes pride in winning with a team that annually ranks at the bottom of the NHL in fighting majors (a league-low six this season).

"I wish we were the biggest, toughest, ugliest team in organized hockey," Babcock said, half-jokingly. "That’s not how we’re built, so you coach what you got."

Babcock would prefer to have an enforcer to "keep the flies off."

The team has had Brad May and Aaron Downey in recent years. But general manager Ken Holland doesn’t like to exhaust a roster spot with a tough guy who can’t play.

"I take pride in the fact we’re real disciplined, but I don’t mind (fighting) majors," Babcock said. "I think fans like majors, too. I never seen anyone leave the building when there’s a scrap.

#2244639 Marchand Suspended 5 games

He is getting minuses because he is flat out wrong, and the video evidence shows it in spades.

Salo wearing a Canucks jersey doesn't make him a scab.

Salo is definitely the biggest exception to the Canucks team's antics, and why I didn't bold his part about all Nucks being assholes.

Then, keep up the "good' work.

Honestly I can understand him saying something like that when it's in response to the veiled threats by a whiny ass coach like Vigneault. Especially considering the whiny divers the Nucks have on their team.

Marchand should care about his reputation with his coach and teammates, and to a certain extent the refs. A more appropriate response would've been that he could care less what the Canucks coach thinks of them.

And if Tortorella gets a 30k fine for ripping on the refs, in the post-Bertuzzi incident NHL, Vigneault should be fined for his comments about Marchand.

I don't know about a suspension, but a fine should be levied. Salo wasn't coming in hot and had his elbows down. Dirty knee check.

Agreed.

the 5 and game he got was enough and throw a fine on it for good measure. Because it's Marchand and Salo got hurt though, I'm guessing he'll get a couple games. I don't think he was running at Salo's knees, but he bailed out of being hit and got way too low for it to be a good hip check.

Nucks fans were bitching about him not even trying to play the puck, but Salo wasn't either.

And because everyone here thinks he's awful, that play happened in part because Ericsson went to the net, screened Crawford, and got a decent backhand off, which rebounded to Dats.

They need to take away one of Hudler's hookers every time he passes when he should shoot.

Franzen is so soft in his own end when fighting for the puck.

So if Homer's stick stopped the puck from going in and he swept the puck away why would that be a penalty shot? I understand that if he closed his glove.

good question.

he said Homer covered it. Except the puck was loose in the crease when he blew the whistle.

STFU Olczyk.

I'm sure it was the one hander by Hudler that took him out. :rolleyes:

Isn't Sharp who Kronwall hit?

Good save Conks.

Dang Hudler, shoot it.

I picture Olczyk sitting in the broadcast booth in a Hawks jersey as he calls the game.

And there's the Olczyk we all know.

it was all homer's fault.

There was a good example when a Hawks player (Brunette?) could've crushed Homer with an east west hit. Holmstrom was looking back to receive the pass as he left the zone. Instead he let it go, because he almost certainly would've clipped mostly Homer's head. Players can learn and there's still plenty of hitting left.
