#2218028 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 24 October 2011 - 09:00 PM

I have nothing against Pronger and I hope he can still see with both of his eyes.

Exactly.

I guess I gave Wings fans too much credit. Pronger has been a major rival over the years, but from the replay and from McKenzie's twitter update, it seems pretty likely he either had an injury to his eye or a very close call. It sucks to see any player suffer an injury like that during a game.

jeebus people. It's not like Pronger has ended anyone's career like Bertuzzi.

I don't wish him ill and I'm not thrilled he got hit with a puck, but it didn't hit him in the face, so there's no danger of a broken jaw or orbital bone, so he'll be okay. It also didn't sound like he was "screaming" getting off the ice, even though the announcer says so. All I heard was a few "ah, ah, ah"s. He's fine. I'll bet money on it. Maybe a few stitches, but I don't think there's even any chance of concussion on that one, hence pretty much a lack of sympathy other than an "Ouch, that had to hurt" kind of thing.

did you watch the clip?

He took a stick to the face, so I'm not sure what you're referring to. The puck wasn't involved. And you can hear the yelling.

I think Pronger is a player who goes over the line (though I'd take him on the Wings), but that doesn't mean I'm happy when he takes a stick to the face.

Stay classy Wings fans. :thumbdown:

He dropped like a ton of bricks and you can hear him screaming as he goes into the dressing room holding his face. Clearly this was more than a little cut.


According to Bob McKenzie he's seeing an eye specialist but there's too much swelling to know anything.

Wow. Mike Green looks less douchey than I remember. Maybe I had him all wrong.


#2217341 Trade between Florida and Vancouver

I feel bad for Samuelsson.

Well he left Detroit for Vancouver in part because he wanted a bigger role. Seems like he'll get it in Florida.


#2217202 Johan Franzen Watch Thread

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 22 October 2011 - 12:49 PM

It's so funny to watch this video of Jamie McClennan years after that cheap shot on Franzen during the Calgary series in 2007.

"He takes abuse in front the net..."

http://video.redwing...id=-6&id=129752

:lol:

I was thinking the same thing. I saw him talking about how much respect he has for Franzen and whatnot, and I'm thinking, isn't this the guy that gave him a two-hander to the gut?

Though it seemed likely it was under coaches orders. they pull Kipper and then Mclennan goes right to work slashing Mule's leg even before the slash to the gut after the whistle.


#2216699 Thoughts on Ericsson?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 21 October 2011 - 11:43 AM

MLive "Red Wings happy with pairing of defensemen Jonathan Ericsson, Jakub Kindl"

Honestly the thought of that pairing scared the crap out of me, but they have looked good so far. Kindl's first pass has improved, and Ericsson is minimizing his brainfarts.

*knocking wood*

Hopefully they keep it up and start playing more and more physical, because it would be a great asset for the Wings two have two young, big defenseman who can eat up minutes and punish guys around the net.

Well besides Lidstrom, is there a single D-Man that doesnt make at least one error every game??

That's part of the problem in evaluating defensemen in Detroit. We get spoiled watching Lidstrom, so it seems like they shouldn't ever make mistakes.

Chris Pronger got absolutely undressed a couple games ago. That doesn't mean he's not a great defenseman. It just happens to the best of them from time to time, unless you're a robot like Lidstrom.

I didn't realize Jimmy had put a tribute to McCrimmon, Salei and Liv on the back of his mask. Pretty cool.


#2216296 10/18 NHL GDT

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 19 October 2011 - 12:09 AM

Just saw the highlights of the Bruins/Canes game, and wow. I love tough hockey, and fighting, but f*** Boston. Officially the "tough guys" of hockey, hitting Jeff Skinner from behind and then Marchand hitting him in the face with a linesman in the way, Chara trying to intimidate Cam Ward, yikes. If we do move to the East, i'll already have a most hated team.

Don't forget Philly and Pittsburgh. If the Wings move to the East there's going to be plenty of options for teams to hate. ;)


#2215644 Thoughts on Ericsson?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 15 October 2011 - 10:36 PM

Wow. we made it a whole 4 games before this thread popped up.

So you're asking if he's worth it 4 games into a three year contract?

Suck on that Wild.

I'm so sick of their snoozefest style hockey.

Mule!


The PP scores on a weak call, but I'll take it.

White had a great game tonight.


That actually looked like it went in off Powe's skate.

The LGW whipping boy gets another goal and no respect. Great tip Hudler.

Definitely.

It's dangerous enough standing in front of the net, but even moreso when your head isn't higher than the crossbar.



Edited for grammar.

The PP will start clicking once we get Rafalski out there.


oh. crap.
