#2595201 Post-GDT ECQF Game 1: Red Wings 3, Lightning 2 (DET leads, 1-0)

Posted by vladdy16 on 17 April 2015 - 11:28 AM

So this is what having your goaltender commit highway robbery feels like.  I could get used to this.

 

Bolts played a great game.  Do they have more to bring to the table?

Wings played a mediocre game.  We all know they can play so much better.  The question is will they?

 

Bolts meet or exceed our speed, which Detroit isn't used to.  Wings have to check, check, check, check, check.  It simply cannot be overstated.  Backcheck, forecheck, and everything in between.  They also need to start throwing some of those good open-ice hits Tampa was so free with.

Lead us to victory, YFMB !

Because I save him for must-win games.  We don't invoke YFMB lightly.  :)

 

Slowest.  Day.  Ever.

Really?  No sinkhole has swallowed up the arena?  No massive power outage?  No swine flu outbreak?

So are they going to do that with every player or just a star even though I don't think he should get a game....

I have no frickin' clue what they're thinking.  Normally stars get the benefit of the doubt, Subban gets a game for an admittedly blatant and unnecessary slash, but not ejection worthy.  I really need to apply to be an NHL ref.  I can call a better game without my glasses.

Yep, 5 and a game.  Total BS.

Subban takes a slashing penalty, gets ejected (???), 5 on 3.  No way he should have been ejected.  Bad, bad call.

This is a "Can't they both get eliminated" series for me.




#2592820 WCQF : (7) Winnipeg Jets vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 April 2015 - 08:36 AM

I'm not sure what it would take for me to root for the Ducks, but it would be spectacular and expensive, I know that.  Hopping on the Jets bandwagon for this one.




#2592734 Money On The Board!

Posted by vladdy16 on 12 April 2015 - 08:21 PM

$1 for each game won
$10 for each series win
$5 for every shutout
$5 for each game won by more than 3 goals

I'm down for whatever charity everyone wants, as long as it benefits the Detroit area.

What, no bunghole pledge?


Yes!  Thanks for doing this again.  Either charity is fine, although I tend to lean towards children's hospitals.  There is no wrong answer if the money is going towards a good cause.

 

I'm going with the hamster bet again.  And, again, I'll keep track in my sig because it would be impossible otherwise.

 

$1 for each goal scored by a Wing after whom I've named a hamster (must still play for the Wings, sorry Filppula).

An additional $1 if the above-mentioned goal scored is a GWG.

An additional $5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.

An additional $50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

 

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

 

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

 

Go Wings!

That hamster list is getting a little long.  You might have to switch it up soon.  :)

Yes, it's our favorite time of year, folks!  For those of you who know how this works, pledge early and often.  For those of you who don't, those who want to participate figure out some kind of financial pledge having to do with the Wings playoff performance.  Some pledge a buck a goal for certain players, some pledge per win, per series, per shutout, or any combination.  Get creative!  Don't get too complicated though, because it gets hard to keep of.  Post your pledge here so we can shamelessly "plus" your post.  When it's not possible to add any more to the kitty, everyone Paypals me their total and I make a donation.

 

Now, all but one year we have donated to Children's Hospital.  I'm fine if everyone wants to keep it that way, but I'd like to suggest we send this season's donation to a local charity started by a 12-year-old when he was 9.  He spends every single Saturday feeding the homeless in Detroit.  I've been following him on Facebook for quite a while now and he's starting to get a lot of press.  All signs point to this being a legit charity.  Check out the Eimers Foundation here and here.  When you pledge, vote for either Children's Hospital or the Eimers Foundation; both are worthy recipients, so I certainly won't be offended either way.

 

 

LGLGW!!

I think Hockeytown has one in the works, but I'll just merge when it's done.

You are a rainbow ceiling fan and that's it.
