#2558669 John Scott Butt Ends Tim Jackman's Face

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 23 December 2014 - 12:28 PM

 

I don't remember how many times the other guys have been suspended or questioned for doing something stupid, but Scott seems to be in the news all the time for something.  

 

He got a 7 games suspension for the headshot to Eriksson.  2 games for leaving the bench to start a fight on a line change.  Interestingly, he was leaving the bench to fight Tim Jackman.  The guy he just butt ended.  

 

 I guess he didn't get anything for jumping Kessel in that pre-season game, which was a chump move.

yea must be a typo.. that makes more sense.

 

although i'd rather see weiss switch with helm personally. 

 

Agreed.  I don't know if this is to ease Weiss back into the lineup given he's only played 11 games this season, or give him less responsibility as a winger to get him going or what. 

 

It seemed crazy he started at wing for his return to the lineup, but Weiss managed to produce in that role.  I'd just like him to work his way back to the 2nd line center he was supposed to be.

Good to see Z get another shot for nof****** reason. Surprised cleary didnt go 3rd

 

No reason? 

 

He was what, the 7th shooter?  And after Kronwall.  It's not like they threw him out there first.

I'm as hard on Franzen as almost anyone, but he's apparently been fighting illness for the last couple weeks.  And the team was completely dominated last night, the loss had little to do with Franzen taking shifts off.  

 

Assuming he really is fighting illness I'm giving him a pass for not showing up lately.

Goodnight guys. The Red Wings are the greatest team to have ever existed. LoL.

 

It's funny how people can't seem to see any position between the extremes. 

 

Saying the Wings suck and will lose is somehow being real.  But apparently the only other alternative is to say that they're awesome and will win every game?  

 

God forbid someone actually discuss the hockey game.  What the Wing's problems are, how they can correct them.  Positives they can build on, etc.

I never said I got joy from it. I come here to talk hockey and I made a prediction about the game. What makes you think I got joy from it? I just find it funny that if you're not some kind of Wings slappy and just gloat about how great the team is you get criticized for it.

 

Because you quoted your own post from earlier to gloat about being right about the loss.

 

There's plenty of people who criticize the Wings here. Criticism is welcome.  It's a hockey fan forum.  We complain about everything.  But  showing up to rub people's face in a loss has nothing to do with talking hockey and criticizing the Wings.

Pretty sad you can't even tell the truth around here. I predicted a loss earlier and I was made fun now people are bitter about it. People are hilarious.

 

A Wings fan getting so much joy from the team losing.  

 

Indeed, people are hilarious.

Well I told you guys the Wings would lose. Don't expect much from this team. This team is sorry, it's not just a losing streak. Well anyway, you guys all have a great night.

 

It's weird that you're so happy to be right about the Wings losing.

You're right.

dude. 

 

I'm waiting for the day when Burke shows up for a press conference wearing a bathrobe smoking a cigar.  It can't be that far away...


Told my wife Goose should have 2 handed the guy hard on the leg if there was no call.

 

That would've worked. Honestly he's probably too short to crosscheck him in the teeth, but I would've settled for a BC two-hander.

Nyquist, crosscheck him in the teeth.  If the refs aren't gonna call it get your own justice.

I could go for a Kronwalling right about now.

Seriously Wings, hit somebody.  If they're going to be first to every puck, put them through the glass.

Ericsson jumping into the play.  good to see them changing something up to try and get shots on net.

Wings need to deck somebody.  Even if it takes them out of position.  

 

The Isles are getting to every loose puck.  Make them pay for it.

Man is this team completely out of sync tonight. 


Insult me if it makes you feel better but the point was that Mrazek is quicker and more athletic (like top tier goalies). Nothing more. It's not an indictment on JH as it is an observation on what keeps JH out of the "top tier" I think Jimmy is better now but I believe he has a lower Celing than others. Don't get wrapped around the axel concerning a specific play. It was an example of my thought/opinion.

 

Feel free to re-read my posts. I take issue with none of what you're saying here. As for the initial point I was making:

 

You: Jimmy no save!
