#2669024 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings at Tampa Bay Lightning, 7:00 EST

Posted by vladdy16 on 15 April 2016 - 07:12 PM

Anyone saying the refs aren't calling a bad game needs to put down the bottle.  That Larkin penalty is pure BS.  The first game they made BS calls against both teams; this game is just all about making Detroit play shorthanded.




#2668620 Silly Question - to go or not to go to game 2?

Posted by vladdy16 on 15 April 2016 - 10:53 AM

Why would you not cheer?  While it's infantile to say you can't wear Wings gear (but they have), they haven't said you can't root for the Wings.  I'd wear an Original Six shirt and eat all their food.

LOL at Zetterberg's bad angle shot attempts.  He's not even trying anymore.  

I think you'd be surprised how many bad angle goals he's scored.

Why on God's green earth are we bitching about a goalie who isn't even playing today?  Keep it to the game, please.

Can't remember his name but this CBC announcer is too old to keep up with the game he has no clue what's going on

He's an iconic announcer but he needs to hang it up. Sheahan had a breakaway and he had no clue it was even a scoring chance

I'm watching CBC as well.  I'm shocked at the "quality" of the announcing.  CBC used to be awesome.  Now I could call a better game.

Is it just me or are the refs out of control this game?  It's freakin' playoff hockey.

Where's our YFJB

YGJB is used sparingly and must be posted well before puck drop.  I'm saving him for when he's really needed. 


Larkin has been horrible with the poke checks

But I applaud the effort.  At least he's using his stick.  Wings needs to get their sticks in the lane more as well.

Is he headed to Tampa or straight to JLA?




#2667489 Money On The Board - 25 years worth of playoffs style!

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 April 2016 - 11:43 AM

First, thanks SO much to 55fan for reminding me!

 

Second, 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.

Am I the only one who hopes SJ never makes it past the 1st round ever again?

What makes this even funnier (to me) is I had to stop and think about who he was for a second.  :lol:

I hear lots of folks say that Wings fans are bipolar.  There is a good reason they would seem that way:
