#2098449 1/15 GDT: Blue Jackets 5 at Red Wings 6 (OT)

I hate Rick Nash and his big fat face.


#2097975 1/14 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Blue Jackets 3 (SO)

Agreed. He started out well last night. He was actually shooting the puck at the net instead of trying to pass it at impossible angles. But then he seemed to revert back to his ol' pass-happy self.

Then again, I didn't think Filppula looked all that good, while other posters were raving about him. I can't remember a time when he actually held on to the puck through the neutral zone, at least through the first period or two.

Whadevah! :cool:

I feel like Flip does all these little things right, but is still that one play off from converting a lot of times.

As for Mule, he should get fined every time he tries to make a pass from a shooting position. I don't care if he's playing center or wing, with a shot like his, when he's around the net SHOOT!

meh. I don't have a problem with Z taking that penalty.

Want to run at me? Get ready to eat an elbow.

With Helmer, I'll take the power play over the penalty shot.


#2094644 Stuart out 6-8 weeks with broken jaw

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 09 January 2011 - 04:41 PM

6 games I think is appropriate, at least when I try to be unbiased.

A little off topic, but honestly when I think about it, unless we're talking about the playoffs, any suspension should be more than two games, or make it none at all. Because sitting a guy for a couple games in an 82 game season is practically just giving him a rest.

If you're going to dole out punishment, make sure it really hurts the team. If the act doesn't warrant that kind of punishment then it probably didn't deserve suspending for any games at all.


#2094620 Grading the Wings after 41 games

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 09 January 2011 - 03:22 PM

Hmm, I guess I'm a bit more harsh a grader than the freep.

No kidding.

I'm happy with the Wings overall, but talk about some homer grades there from the free press. On a team that's often giving up 3 and 4 goals a game, they're getting off easy for defensive miscues.

Kronwall's had a great offensives season, but as mentioned by Khan hasn't been hitting anybody, and has had more than his fair share of brainfarts defensively. To me that warrants lower than an A. I'd give Kronwall a B, maybe B-

Rafalski too. doing great offensively, but some games he'll get three points but have just as many brutal defensive gaffes. B or B-.

Homer's been his usual self in front of the net and in the corners, but has been a turnover machine anywhere else. I guess a B fits that though.

And how does Howard get an A-, unless these grades were given after the game last night? Jimmy's not been bad, but if he was in the A range last season, he's a B this season. Too many juicy rebounds and occasional softies.

Ozzy I'd give a B. good, not great. But for the first time has shown he can be effective as a backup.

Otherwise I thought most of the other grades were pretty good.


#2094462 Crosby Out with Mild Concussion

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 09 January 2011 - 02:24 AM

No s***. Where are all the Crosby defenders now? He's a ***** who thinks he should be untouchable, plain and simple.

esteef

Well, at least it wasn't one of the worst hits he's ever seen. That one happened to Franzen, right?

For the record, I think Crosby's a super-talented whiny little *****. But this forum's obsession with him has gotten just sad.

Who gives a crap? People complain about how the NHL gives him way too much attention, but how much do we give him here? He's one single player in the other conference that we'll never really see until the Cup finals if both teams make it that far.


#2093665 Trade Time?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 08 January 2011 - 05:52 PM

Lack of production isn't the problem.

Lack of commitment to team defense is.


#2093379 1/7 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Flames 4 (SO)

Good for Babs, that would be a fine that's 100% worth it! Just saying "crap" or "garbage" doesn't have the same impact.

Edit: I didn't watch, who hit Stuart? Was it another one of those Canadian goons influenced by Don Cherry I've been complaining about the past few years?

He had a long name on the back of his sweater, but I think it was "Gutlesspuke."

Not sure I spelled it correctly though.

Babs is awesome.

Calling it disgraceful, saying all you have to do is hit the guy, not target his head. "It's unfortunate s*** like that goes on."


think he's pissed?

HOLY s***! WE WON A SHOOTOUT! OMG! OMG! OMG! I HAVE NO PANTS!

I'm not sure that's relevant. You probably had no pants during regulation.


#2093262 1/7 GDT: Red Wings 5 at Flames 4 (SO)

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 07 January 2011 - 11:53 PM

Wow. Wings come away with two points they didn't deserve tonight.

Ugly but I'll take it.

Now tomorrow how bout working on letting in less than 4 goals as a team?

Tanguay with a Youngblood-length windup there.

Drapes, Eaves, Helm for the shootout.

Just for the balls it would take to do that.

Really dirty hit, suspension for sure.

You have a lot more faith in this league than I do.
