#2498829 Neal and Legwand fined

Posted by Dabura on 22 March 2014 - 10:39 AM

$5,000 isn't even a slap on the wrist. It's a tummy tickle. So: cross-check someone in the face, get tickled. Good job, Shanny. Way to send a message.

Ville Leino is doing what it takes to get that #1 pick. He's the only one who really gets it. You mock him now, but one day, when the Sabres are the most dominant team in the modern era, you'll remember Ville Leino, the selfless hero who took it upon himself to turn the organization around and put it on the path to future glory. And you mocked him.




#2498816 3/22 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Wild 2

We really need to figure out how to hold a lead. The Avs are something like 30-0-2 when leading after two periods. Point being, youth and inexperience is not an excuse.


I thought helm was back today?

 

Game-time decision.

Seriously: Luke F****** Glendening. He shut down Sidney Crosby. He was a beast on the PK. He generated offense and was a major factor in Bertuzzi's goal. He threw his weight around. He agitated like a seasoned superpest and drew two big penalties, one of which - the fallen stick one - was a thing of beauty. (Made it seem like he'd intended to retrieve the stick before Neal pushed it away. Sold it.)

 

We beat the Pens in '08 largely on the strength of our depth. Last night reminded me a bit of that series in this regard. Is Glendening the next/new Helm?

#2498551 Around The League - Eastern Conference Playoff Race

Posted by Dabura on 21 March 2014 - 01:23 AM

Nothing to worry about. We still have 2 games on them. No need to worry about the teams behind us. We're starting to pull away from them. Let the teams we are chasing worry about the likes of the Caps.

 

Nothing to worry about? Bit of a stretch, don't you think? Two games in hand doesn't guarantee anything, and they'd won four in a row before tonight. I mean, I get what you're saying. But we need all the teams around us to lose as much as we need to win.

They didn't win because of Howard, they won in spite of him.

 

To be fair, he was pretty solid tonight. Like he is most nights. It's just, for whatever reasons, he's good for at least one bad goal against a game. And it's maddening. But with a better team in front of him, he'd look a lot better.

 

I don't like hating on Howard. I've been doing it lately and it feels wrong. Our skaters are such a mess that it should never be him getting all the blame. Our defense..my God, our defense....

I just. I'm not even celebrating. It hasn't even sunk in yet. I know it's just a regular season game and s*** and the Pens don't care, but that is an instant classic Red Wings moment. That whole kill, really. Hell, the whole game.

 

Daniel effing Alfredsson and Gustav effing Nyquist. And our effing PKers.

didn't get to see the game

 

could someone please describe the play on the winning goal?

 

Odd-man rush with, like, five seconds left. I think it was a 3-on-1, but maybe 3-on-2. Anyway Alfie took a shot, Nyquist came barreling in as the trailing crasher and I think he pushed Scuderi who in turn pushed the rebound into the net. With 0.4 seconds left.

Zebra knew he would've been murdered in the parking lot. By Legwand. Had to give us the goal. (Not that it wasn't a goal anyway.)

 

Wow, don't sound too excited, Kathryn Tappen.

I would fire Holland just for that one trade.  Kyle Quincey for a 1st rounder looked back even when it was made.  This isn't hindsight being 20/20 mind you, it was a bad trade from the very beginning.  

 

Preaching to the choir, preaching to the choir.

The sad thing is that no one will lose their jobs or spot on the team over this season.  

 

Holland will be back, Babcock will be back, and every failure of this season will be entirely racked up to injuries.  Problem is, we'll probably have all these injuries again next year, because there's obviously an organizational problem when you're this hurt every year.  Whether it's a lineup of wusses, or the strength and conditioning is poor, etc. something needs to change.  I doubt it will because Holland and Babcock have immunity.  Anyone in a position of power who has immunity is a dangerous thing.  People work better when there's something from outside lighting a fire under their asses.  This franchise doesn't have that with Ilitch being an old, dying man who doesn't care about the Wings anymore.  

 

Are you saying you don't want Kyle Quincey back for three more seasons?
