maybe I'll see you there!

I'll be the one in the Wings shirt.  :lol:  Section 208, row 12 - thisclose to perfect seats, baby!

 

Brown suspended for 2 games.  Hopefully that will help a bit tonight.

Anyone know if this is a real loss for them or not?

Who'd have thought our Powerless Play would be all of our scoring in a game?  This team looks pllayoff ready - hope it lasts til June!

See what going to the net and no fancy s*** can do for you?  Brunner gets another PP goal.  WOO HOO.

This has crossed the line into Political Discussion territory, which is persona non grata here.  




#2385603 Six outdoor games in 2014 for NHL

Posted by vladdy16 on 17 April 2013 - 11:33 AM

What a bunch of hipsters.  Something becomes popular and you all don't like it anymore.  Would you all be whining if the Wings weren't granted the Winter Classic next year but was added to play the beloved Minnesota Wild outdoors?

Yup.  Too much of a good thing and all that.

Wings/Leafs will be the most epic, of course, but this really makes the WC a joke, especially if they continue to do this.  Way to f*** up another cool thing about hockey, NHL.  Will it never end?

Seriously, let it rest. You going to bring up Bert in every thread about a player getting injured? I'm sure somewhere Steve Moore is happy you are fervently championing his cause, but in the end you just come off looking like a troll.

 

And this concludes the Bertuzzi portion of our discussion.

 

Exactly.

 

Knowing you're going to have to fight someone won't stop hits like this.  It was a terrible decision and a terrible hit.  Idiots like White don't stop and think "uh oh, better not or someone is going to punch me."  He's not thinking at all.

 

But players have said time and time again how good it is for morale to see someone sticking up for his teammate after something like that.  

 

And it "helps keep the flies off" as Babcock puts it.  Cuts down a cheapshots around the net and in scrums from little weasels who act like toughguys against the Wings because they know they can.  

 

As I said at the time, when Jimmy got run over and bent backwards, at least one Red Wing should've started pounding on the guy or crosschecking the snot out of him.  Instead they stood around looking to the ref.  

 

Pounding on a guy in a situation like that isn't just to keep him from doing it again, an all out brawl escalates the situation for the refs.  Someone runs Jimmy, a melee ensues.  So from an officiating perspective they'll probably be more keyed in to guys running the goalie because they don't want to lose control of the game.

 

Taking a penalty there is better than having Jimmy get repeatedly run over and injured as you're trying to make the playoffs. 

I'd like to bold pretty much this entire post.  What I wouldn't give to have a McCarty or a Shanahan on this roster; someone who contributes and runs interference, not just a goon.

That's called "grit".

Just wanted to say I really miss the days when you would add to the conversation instead of the sarcastic drive-bys that are becoming SOP for you.

 

Franzen is suffering from bi-polar disorder this game; he'll make a good play then forget what he was doing.

Sorry, don't do graphics but it's 6:51 and there's no GDT.  

 

 

 

GO WINGS!!




#2382913 Concerned - we might not make it in to the playoffs

Posted by vladdy16 on 11 April 2013 - 10:40 AM

Wings seem kinda confident as well.  I received an email today inviting me to purchase my playoff tickets.




#2382717 Why do you cheer for the Red Wings?

Posted by vladdy16 on 10 April 2013 - 10:46 AM

Cuz if I'd cheered against them, Dad'd have backhanded me and I'd have gotten no supper.

Same with the Lions.

 

Now it's in my blood.

Same here, except it was my two older brothers.  And it wouldn't have been limited to just a backhand.  I shudder to think what would have happened had I said anything less than complimentary about Gordie.

Interesting point, but this would fit well in one of at least 3 other threads.




#2381948 4/7 GDT : Blues 1 at Red Wings 0

Posted by vladdy16 on 07 April 2013 - 02:04 PM

As much as it pains me, I gotta give it to the Blues; in spite of the chippy s*** they constantly pull, they still played a better overall game.  And the Wings make an average goalie look like an All Star once again.
