#2440876 10/2 GDT : Sabres 1 at Red Wings 2

Posted by Dabura on 02 October 2013 - 07:44 PM

Alfredsson with six attempted shots so far. Certainly doesn't look like a guy at the very end of his career.

I'll tell ya what.

 

It's only been a few minutes, and we're playing the Sabres...but "I like our team."

We seem to be buzzing around the net, at least more than usual. Bottom six is looking much better than expected. Bertuzzi seems to be in fine form.

On a side note my mom use to always make me tuck my shirt in, is that a faux pas now?

 

No. But tucking your kid in at night is now illegal in six states.




#2440531 will you tank red wings games due to the cleary signing

Posted by Dabura on 02 October 2013 - 12:53 PM

I remember "Edzo" going apoplectic over a borderline illegal hit or two - the twist being, he was mad at the guy who got hit. I'm not sure if I'd call that a thing of his, though. Maybe that'd be the jackpot, and you'd have to do, like, 20 shots in rapid-fire succession, and then yell at your friend/pet/inanimate object for being reckless and dangerous.

I'm ok with Cleary in the line up, but Bert/Sammy :blink:

 

I'm ok with Cleary and Bert in the lineup. But Sammy... :blink:




#2440391 Are teams going to "bait" us into fighting?

Food for thought

I have to say, I've grown to like Ott as a person and as a hockey player. Yes, he's a bush league pest. But he's also not. Which is cool. He's got one year on his contract, and though he says he loves being a Sabre, no one actually likes - let alone loves - being a Sabre. Except Ryan Miller, but he's emo and stuff. Anyway, I hope we land Ott in a deadline trade or snag him through free-agency in the summer. I'm actually being totally serious.

#2439982 Emmerton on Waivers

Posted by Dabura on 30 September 2013 - 01:24 PM

I was going to make a post here earlier today saying that anyone who thinks Tatar is on the same footing as Cleary, Samuelsson, and Bertuzzi in Babcock's (and Holland's) mind hasn't been following this team for very long.

 

Tatar scratched while Cleary, Bertuzzi and Samuelsson probably all play?

 

Holland will never embrace a youth movement. It only happened because his hand was forced last season.

 

Bingo. As I've been saying all along, the "youth movement" is a lie. It was born of necessity, not preference.




#2439807 Emmerton on Waivers

Actually, Glendening wouldn't help either of our problems, would he? His cap hit is bigger than Emmerton's (unless I' mistaken), and he's another body.

 

Please no Cleary on the top line. For the love of all that is sacred and holy.




#2439767 Are teams going to "bait" us into fighting?

Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle coached against the Red Wings for many years in Anaheim. He believes their toughness is underestimated.

 

“I don’t think you can say they don’t play a tough brand of hockey,'' Carlyle said. “I’ve coached a lot of games against the Red Wings in the Western Conference and they match up well any way you want to play it.

 

“Toughness isn’t always about fighting. I think there seems to be a misrepresentation about what team toughness is. Team toughness means to take a check to make a play, block a shot, get in the way of people in the tough areas of the ice and earn your space. And they do a good job of that.''
