DK laying some lumber on Nash in front of the net.  Great to see.

If St. Louis ends up scoring I'm okay if someone crosschecks the s*** out of him as he's celebrating.

Now it's Taylor Hall and Eberle's responsibility to demand more accountability from the team. 

 

unbelievable.

Wow.  Now he's basically saying don't blame me, I've only been on the job for 20 months.   That all his losses as coach was the fault of management, which he had no control over.

He basically just said how they've brought in all these different consultants and coaches, the players need to execute better.  :lol:

I didn't guess cause I can't go, but I still somehow feel cheated.

 

or flattered?




#2553276 Kings fined $100K for allowing Slava Voynov to practice w/ team

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 02 December 2014 - 04:50 PM

Team's statement:

 

Los Angeles Kings statement:

“This was clearly a mistake on our part and we accept full responsibility. It is incumbent upon us to be more vigilant in managing this situation to ensure that Slava’s allowable training activities always remain separate from the team.”

 

 
 
Considering the whole team was on the ice for an "optional" practice, it's hard to believe it was just an oversight.  I'm just not sure what their thinking was.



#2553232 The Last Gladiators

I've watched this film on Netflix a few times now. The more I see stories like this the more I struggle with the role of the enforcer/fighter in the game.

 

Agreed.  

 

I grew up watching hockey in the 80s, loved guys like Probert and Kocur but now as an adult hockey fan and knowing what it does to these guys I have a harder time enjoying it as part of the game. 

 

Especially because the more you learn about them you realize what great guys most of them were.  Blue collar guys doing what they had to in order to stay on the roster. Saying "they knew what they were getting in to" doesn't really explain it away for me anymore. 

 

As for the documentary, I thought it was a decent one, though completely misnamed.  It really is a movie about Nilan.




#2553089 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 01 December 2014 - 02:53 PM

Hell, even a 37 year old Willie Mitchell is getting 4.25 million over the same term and signed in the same year.

 

It's market value whether people like that or not...

 

I'd take Mitchell over Quincey in a heartbeat, even at that age.  He's a better defender. 

 

I don't think it was crazy overpaid, but for a guy that's been on the Wings roster and sounds like had little interest around the league, Quincey's contract felt a bit high at the time of the signing.

 

Luckily Quincey has been playing well so I'd say he's earning his paycheck.  With him though there's always that chance he forgets how to play hockey for a 20 game stretch again.

How is that not a hooking penalty?

 

Good question.  It was a clear hook to the hands from behind on a breakaway.

Helms out with datsyuk and zetterberg now.
I think he may just glide after he's tired, like he doesn't try at all.
He was supposedly dominating all the conditioning tests this off season.

 

Exactly. 

 

Even that last shift instead of working to maintain possession of the puck in the offensive zone, he just throws it behind the net and gives up possession.  Vancouver recovers and he heads right off the ice. 

 

He's such a good player but shifts like that are so irritating.

Ericsson looks gassed out there a fair amount of the time.

Big block by Abby there.

It's crazy that this is just now Dekeyser's 100th game.  He plays like someone with a lot more experience than that, especially given the minutes he gets.  The Wings are lucky to have him.
