5 minutes for falling.

Hopefully the Wings will get it together and play inspired after the first month or so
after the first half of the season
for the stretch run
to start the playoffs
starting in the second period??

So Lidstrom stick checks him around the hands, and he somehow gets knocked off his feet?!

what a friggin dive.

Is it wrong I want someone to crosscheck Doan in the teeth?

I've always hated him.

#2147812 Modano a healthy scratch

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 13 April 2011 - 04:33 PM


I know it's become popular to make posts like that, but how about backing it up with some statements as to why?

I forget this from time to time, but Modano is 6'3" 212 lbs. He's 40 years old but still a decent skater with a heavy shot. It's hard to believe a guy that big can be so invisible most nights. He doesn't need to be out there crushing guys, but little Hudler has better puck pursuit and is more physical than Modano.

It's like on paper he wanted to play in Detroit, then he found out how friggin hard it is to backcheck all the time.

Ok hockey fansÖI'm back. For the first time in probably 5 or 6 years, Iím contributing to a GDT. What can I say? Itís playoff time...so please excuse the rust. (I apologize in advance for many of the inside jokes that will make some of you go WTF...but Iím doing this for the old-timers around here.) Enjoy!

Yours truly,


I cannot wait for this game I will be there!!

Feeling a 4-2 win. Modano, Franzen, Cleary, Draper.



Holy crap! The playoffs inspiring two blasts from the past! One from waaaaay back. I thought someone had bumped an old GDT when I first saw Puckmark's post.

Welcome back! please don't wait 5 more years until your next post, and go Wings!!!

#2145905 Doc Holliday's Wager

Props to Doc for having some fun here at the end of the season.


#2145660 Any one think Abby might face discipline?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 10 April 2011 - 03:44 PM

There is no question in my mind that Abby will get something. It's almost identical to the elbow-to-face shot that Dany Heatley recently gave to Steve Ott in our (Sharks) game against Dallas. It was a sweet shot to watch against a notorious rat/agitator, but for that Heatley received a two game suspension and $80,645.16 fine.

Watch here and see if you can see much of a difference:


Ah. I was confused when you said it was Eager.

But seriously, you can't see much difference between Abby's hit, where he's actually going to hit a guy along the boards who had played the puck, and Heatley's, where he throws an elbow as he skates past Ott?

just for reference.

For comparison:

The difference in both cases (from the Bert shot) is that they obviously (or at least arguably) deliberate head shots.

The difference is that they're arguably the same? what?

Now I'm starting to think you're a sharks fan just trolling. Abby's is worse than Bert's. But Abby's is nothing like what Heatley did.

Be a bigger Lidstrom?


Sadly that's what it seems like sometimes. He was drafted last, converted to defense late, and is in second full season in the NHL. I'd be ecstatic if he developed into a solid middle pairing guy.

#2143387 Raffi Torres suspended 4 games

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 07 April 2011 - 05:05 PM

See now clean hits get suspensions, what did I tell everyone? They should just ban hitting now rather than making a mockery of hitting

Right. Because running around braining guys is just good clean hockey.

It's funny how most of these suspendible hits keep happening to guys with a history of dirty play. Coincidence I guess.

Cracking down on these hits shouldn't take it out of the game. What it hopefully will do is that players will make sure they can actually contact the body when they throw a check. When you come flying in on an angle perpendicular to the guy you're trying to hit, there's a really good chance you're going to miss his body and just clip a head. Especially if you throw a shoulder or elbow. Hitting is playing the body. Not the head.

#2143123 Unbelievably bad goal.

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 07 April 2011 - 01:09 AM

Distinct kicking motion, not clear that Hossa ever touched it with his stick, not clear it ever crossed the goal line = Good goal to O'Halloran.

His incompetency shouldn't be surprising, and yet I was.

#2142492 Turco making bets during game

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 06 April 2011 - 02:11 PM

I doubt he actually bet the guy. I would guess the guy wrote that on the $5 bill and Turco wrote the his name on it, and then passed it back. Everything else is probably embellished. Especially the "wad of fives." Where exactly does a goalie keep a wad of five dollar bills during a game?

But him taking the bill and crossing out Habs and writing his name is still pretty funny.

#2142420 If there was one F/D/G you could add to the team, who would it be?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 06 April 2011 - 10:36 AM

Pretty much every fan-base has an athlete that they can do that chant for. For instance, Detroit had Ndamukong Suuuuuh. However, I do not participate because I agree that it is ridiculous.

As for the original question, I agree with someone before me in Nash, Weber, and Lundqvist. That would be killer.

True, but what makes the "Louuuuu" cheer really irritating to me is they do it practically every time he touches the puck.

Wings fans chant "Ozzy" but it's usually after he's made a series of great saves. Luongo could make an easy save on a shot that didn't even have enough momentum to cross the goalline and the fans would still shout "Louuuu."

#2141579 Team MVP?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 03 April 2011 - 09:13 PM


20+ minutes a night of elite defensive play. Played in every game this season. 2nd on the team with 61 points. Ice water running through his veins, off the charts hockey IQ.

Lidstrom's play rarely dazzles because it's not flashy, but he is the foundation of everything good Detroit does.

Keep both hands on your stick Bert.

His left glove must look brand new.
