#2473291 Bleacher Report: 5 positive things in the Red Wings

Posted by vladdy16 on 16 January 2014 - 01:40 PM

Either discuss the article or move on, please.  No need to derail the conversation making jabs at people.




#2472953 Stadium Series: Los Angeles

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 January 2014 - 01:33 PM

@NHL This truck traveled through 8 U.S. states from Ann Arbor to SoCal (2.2k miles) to create ice for the #StadiumSeries.

 

You're welcome.

Damn, you said the HT word. Now he probably won't get one. :(

#2471958 Cleary should be suspended for elbow to head

Posted by vladdy16 on 10 January 2014 - 07:05 PM

Cheapshot from Cleary... there is no place for that in the NHL...

Here's the problem: Things like this will continue because the league isn't serious about policing itself. Time and time again it's either no hearing or a BS fine.  The only solution at this point is to get rid of the instigator rule and let teams police themselves.  It will make for some all-out donnybrooks initially, but will even itself out eventually.  

 

I must admit I am shocked at how deplorable Shanahan is at this job, whether it's his own incompetence or the higher powers that be.  I really thought Shanny was a perfect choice for the position given the way he played, but he's either stunningly inadequate or a mere figurehead.  Just do away with the whole dog-and-pony show already and get on with the game.




#2470433 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

I was listening to Leafs radio earlier - forget the player, but he was saying basically the Leafs got away with one.  Even Leafs players thought it was suspension worthy.  WTF, Shanny?

Yup, Shanny does it again.  The guy shouldn't be crucified, but a couple of games for a repeat offender is not untoward.  SO disgusted.

This game tied for NBC's highest overnight ratings for a regular season game.  The game it tied?  2009 Winter Classic.  I'm picking up on a theme here.....




#2470105 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Posted by vladdy16 on 01 January 2014 - 06:40 PM

Am I the only one pleased with this game?  Yes, a win would have been optimal, but the only thing that would have made it better would have been being there.  The Wings played a great game, and so did the Leafs.  I thoroughly enjoyed it.  The crowd was great, it was good hockey going back to its roots.  Even the officiating for the most part was good.  Whether the whistles were swallowed or frozen, no matter.  They played.  The game rocked.  

The shootout must die, but I have yet to watch a single shootout.

I just had to laugh.  It's gotten to the point of ridiculousness.  




#2464178 Rivalries

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 December 2013 - 10:50 AM

 

You must be young. Some of us oldsters still have a deep hatred for Toronto. So glad the Wings can renew that rivalry now.

 

And just think how sweet it will be when the Wings beat Chicago in the Cup Finals some year. :)

Absolutely agreed.  Growing up, Toronto was Public Enemy Number One, with Chicago a distant second.  It was passed on genetically.  Chicago was more of a regional rivalry since they sucked pretty hard, but Toronto, they were a deeply hated foe.  

There is not a happy dance big or long enough to express my joy at being back in the East.
