#2499561 Dallas Eakins loses his cool...thanks to some water

Posted by Dabura on 23 March 2014 - 02:00 PM

Ah, there it is. Like a warm blanket and a mug of tea in front of the fire on a cold day...

But I also agree with the first part too. We've all had those days where tons of bad things happen and we're all able to soldier on, but then something little happens like you bump into a wall on accident and all of a sudden EVERYTHING IS THAT GOD DAMNED WALL'S FAULT AND *punch punch* I WILL BRING IT DOWN LIKE THE STINKIN' PATRIARCHY THAT MADE IT!!!!!1111111

Or Eakins is just a giant douchenozzle. I haven't decided yet.

Either way, he made himself look like an ass on national television.

I like Eakins. There was that one time he said his idea of a perfect game is one where his team doesn't have to throw a single hit. The Edmonton media doofs, being Edmonton media doofs, were totally confused, and it was awesome.

 

I don't think he's quite ready for success in The Big League. Certainly the Oilers were a bad fit. I think one thing the Oilers have to realize is that they need a top-end NHL coach, e.g. Laviolette. Renney, Krueger, Eakins - these are, IMHO, guys who were picked because of a lack of clout, i.e. Ownership/Management wants guys who will "know their place" and not question stuff and make a big fuss when it becomes clear that everyone at the top of the pyramid is incompetent. I'm not blaming Eakins, but I don't think he's the right man for the job. To turn this sorry-ass sack-of-s*** team around, they're gonna need a guy who really, really, really knows what he's doing.

I'd imagine this is more of a this-team-sucks-and-I-just-need-one-little-thing-to-set-me-off-omg-my-best-player-just-squirted-me-with-water kind of thing. Or maybe he thought it was...semen.

 

At any rate, I predict Hall will demand a trade to the Red Wings.

Someone needs to gently tap Franzen on the head. That'll get him going.

$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.

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.
