#2401526 WCQF Game 6 GDT : Ducks 3 at Red Wings 4 (OT) - (Series Tied 3-3)

Wings just have to play around the refs and the hooking and holding and interference that's going on.  They're not going to get a call, they might just as well play through.  

I'd like to see the puck in our end a little less, please.

There's not enough alcohol in my house to cover this game.  Not a bad game, it's just that they're toying with me, damn it.

#2398961 Money on the Board - playoff style!

Posted by vladdy16 on 07 May 2013 - 06:10 PM

I think I should have picked something less abstract... due to interruptions or generally not paying well enough attention I don't have an accurate count of Mick's Mickeyism's.... I will probably just guesstimate an amount and donate when all is said and done. That being said, he has been surprisingly mum on his typical colorful remarks... at least when I have been paying attention.

Yeah, that was a tough one - a beer or two and counting is futile.

 

Vladifan is on vacation and has asked me to track her total, which is much easier - she's up to 45 bucks already.




#2395358 Money on the Board - playoff style!

Not trying to sound skeptical here, but how do we know our money is going to charity? I know it's not a ton of money, but it would be nice to know that my money isn't going into the pocket of a mod on LGW (who curiously hasn't posted their own donation on this thread). I truly don't think there is a scam going on here. I'm just wondering if there is any way to prove or verify where this money is going, cause I'm sure that would entice a few more ppl into donating (myself included).

I have the board administrator's verification, stated my pledge and gave you the option to make out a check to Children's Hospital.  I think I've covered everything. We're all waiting on your pledge now.  

 

 

To 55fan, troubadour and Peadydog, thanks so much for really going out of your way to help make this successful.  



I've given before.  She once posted a thank-you that she got.

 

She's gone to quite some trouble to find a good charity that would take our donation.  Plus I think that there are people on here who know her personally and can vouch for her.  Of course, then you have to find people who will vouch for them...

I'll vouch for you.

Obligatory

This is NOT obligatory - it's sensationalism at its finest.  You are the reason tabloids exist, and Honey Boo Boo and reality TV.  Thanks a lot.




#2393289 Corey Perry Knee/Kick to Howard

Posted by vladdy16 on 01 May 2013 - 12:46 PM

I didn't see the Detroit feed, but safe to say, the TSN angle was much different.  They were suggesting it was a terrible call.  Perry drove the net hard and with Kronwall coming in on him, he tried to jump to avoid getting hit and hitting Howard.  The debate during the intermission is whether it should have been a penalty or not.....there wasn't a single person questioning whether it was dirty and should be something more (for reference, most thought it shouldn't have been a penalty).

 

I orirginally thought it was a bad call and shouldn't have been a penalty and probably still do.  The only thing he could have done differently is not drive the net....which I'd never want someone to avoid doing.  The only thing you can question is whether he stuck his leg out on purpose.  I find it hard to believe he would have done that considering he's got a sharp blade on foot, which could slice someone's throat and kill them.  That said, it's possible he wasn't thinking about that, thought he could stick it out and nudge him....not a stretch considering who we are talking about.

 

No question Howard threw a huge dive in there to get a call though...which I don't like at all.  I have more tolerance for goalies, but I still don't like it.  It annoys me sometimes how a lot of people on this board yell and scream about divers (Selanne last night) and have excuses for any Wing player that does it.  I've noticed Nyquist diving a lot this year and last night as an example.

I don't think Howard was trying to sell it - I think that anyone getting hit in the head is going to instinctively jerk away from the contact.  Howie is getting the benefit of any doubt from me in this instance.

Will people please cease posting "lock this thread" in the thread?  If you don't care to discuss the topic, don't enter the thread. I personally think that we could have the reincarnation of Terry Sawchuk and people would still ***** around here.  It's what they do.  I don't agree with it, so I don't post in the thread.  As a mod I am, unfortunately, required to enter the thread.  Goalie wars are inevitable.  This thread would be more on track if people who didn't want to participate in the discussion would cease commenting on other's discussing it.   I suspect this thread has yet to be closed because our goaltending actually is discussion-worthy and Matt runs a pretty loose ship.  If Matt tires of this war, the thread will be locked. Until then, please keep the discussion courteous and on topic. Thanks!

Am I just insanely tired or are both teams skating very, very well this period?

Maybe this will piss Babcock off enough to get the boys moving in the third.

Yeah, the Death Stare will be in full force, I'm sure.

Wings looking more and more confused as the game goes on.  Not good.  Not sure I'd want to be doing my job at midnight either, but then again, I don't make that kind of money.   Delay of game against the Wings  Beautiful.

I don't know that that was embellishment - if you're not expecting it, you're going to jerk your head away from the contact.

Lol Ducks announcers:

 

Wings finish 15th in PK: "Middle of the pack"

Ducks finish 13th in PK: "Finished strong"

 

Detroit are masters of interference away from the puck.

West Coast fans trumpet that Wings are masters of interference quite often.  Now I know why.

God damn the Ducks have the most uneducated fans in the NHL. It's not a penalty every time one of your players gets put on their ass

Which is even more amusing considering their team has a reputation for dirty play.  :lol:
