Nice penalty call on Lidstrom (seriously?) on an offsides that wasn't called.

I think I'm going to break out my Wings DVD set this weekend. I'm feeling the need for a little March 26th juju.

This game is starting to illustrate why the Wings won't get past the Hawks, Sharks or Canucks in a 7 game series. I guess they are where they are in the standings e.g. 4th place and behind the Hawks, Canucks & Sharks. I am sick of coming up short every year since 2008.

I wouldn't bet on that. No one can go from crap to spectacular like the Wings.

f*** Hossa. What a chump.

I flipped him off with both hands. :)

My son is banned from speaking to me the rest of the game. He talks, they score. As far as I'm concerned, he's a mute.

Yzerman did not purposely hurt Pronger. Pronger was going after Yzerman once again because of the latter's bum knee; he was charging toward Yzerman along the boards--Yzerman counter-hit him and Pronger landed awkwardly.

Sssssshhhhhhhh. It was sarcasm. :)

When the Wings are motivated to play, they can beat any team in the league. That is for sure!

No doubt, but it sure would be nice if they would motivate themselves before the 3rd.

Dear Pavel,
I'd like to see more of that, please.
Thank you.

PS - Don't get hurt!

Not sure what you're talking about in the Sharks series Vladdy, but that settles it then. I renounce my allegiance to the Canucks and throw it towards a more respectful team like the Wings.

Yeah that was easy. Go Wings.

Basically Vladdy, some of us are tired of hearing about what a bunch of assholes, divers and soft players the Canucks are. People hate our team and hate us fans and no one even remotely associated with the Canucks escapes the wrath of two-bit hockey analysts in Toronto or drooling couch potatoes in Edmonton, Boston, Chicago or Ottawa. I was amazed at how Sens fans jumped on the hate bandwagon last week when there wasn't a single significant incident in the game that would have been out of the ordinary in any game between any two teams. But because the Canucks had the rep when they went into Ottawa, Sens fans saw the game through goggles that were so distorted it's a wonder they saw any of the game at all. It just gets old and the popular commentary is way out of proportion when teams like the Kings are even worse offenders in my opinion when it comes to stuff like diving. The fact is there are agitators on a lot of teams and divers on all teams - even yours. The stink of diving is in every home arena in the NHL but most people only complain when the other team farts and steadfastly hold their noses when someone on their own rips one.

However, there is a positive aspect to all this. When collective groups face adversity it often forces them to bond together even closer and I see that happening with both the team and its fans. Canucks often joke now about how they're the "most hated team in the NHL" and it's something that seems to have pushed them even closer together.

And yeah, I know where I am and I know i will get no sympathy here and will get eaten alive for this post. Wouldn't be the first time.

I don't hate the Nucks, nor have I jumped on any hate bandwagon. I watched the WCF with my own two eyes. IMO it was a pitiful display. The Nucks have their rep for a reason. I hope it changes soon.

And yes, people dive on all teams, even ours. The difference is that I actually call out the Wings when they do it, I don't giggle because they got away with it or got a call because of it. I consider it disgraceful and wish the refs would call it.

And try not to get so defensive. Yes, you're in enemy territory, but I never even hinted that you should switch allegiances, nor was I holding Detroit up as some paragon. I didn't have to - we all know it already! :P

Tough crowd.

I always look forward to seeing the Wings come to town - another big game and a measuring stick for both teams with nearly identical records and with both teams rounding into form.

The usual hot suspects on the Canucks are hot - you know who they are. Others include Jannik Hansen, Mason Raymond, Chris Higgins, Cody Hodgson and Michael Bublé.

The main concern for the Canucks will be the number 3 defensive pairing with Andrew Alberts and Alexander Sulzer in for Keith Ballard (possibly) and Aaron Rome (definitely). If Ballard plays (dealing with back spasms), Sulzer will be out.

The most significant injury at the moment is to David Booth (knee) who had been playing exceptional when he was hurt a couple of weeks ago.

Good luck Wings fans.

Sorry, Chairman, but I lost a lot of respect for the Nucks after the WCF last year. Not only was it a pitiful display, but so very unnecessary. Vancouver was too talented for that crap. Not that the Sharks weren't just as pathetic, but who gives a rats ass about them right now? :)
I hope to see a good game by both teams, with the Wings never letting the Nucks get even a whiff of a win.

Posted by vladdy16 on 16 December 2011 - 06:09 PM

What would possess a grown man to put his hands on someone else's kid? And with witnesses?? Plus with all the Sandusky scandal, this is really, really bad timing. It will go much harder on him with this issue in the forefront of people's minds.

Idiot.


#2235300 Crosby has "concussion symptoms"

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 December 2011 - 01:17 PM

you don't think it will affect fans? you don't think the fans want to see the best players play, especially a player that may be the most exciting in the league?

do you think fans wouldn't care if datsyuk retired tomorrow due to injuries? a player that many feel is alone worth the price of admission to a game? and that's a player that already reached his prime, unlike crosby.

get a clue.

BAH hahahahahahahahahaha! Your love of Crosby is pathological. Hell divided by yes people all over the league would care if Dats retired due to injuries. He's one of the few players on the Wings no one really hates. Talk (nicely) to opposing team's fans at games and read the internet. Pavel is a marvel all over the league.

You are now beginning to amuse me.


#2235266 Crosby has "concussion symptoms"

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 December 2011 - 11:15 AM

He's a rival and promoted above all and the hate is understandable on that level. To think it doesn't matter one way or the other for hockey is delusional and putting their hate above the good of the game.

Please explain why the unfortunate possible retirement of HWSNBN is any more devastating to the league than that of excellent and almost universally beloved players? He's a very good player to be sure, but I fail to see how his loss will harm the league. If anything, it will help get headshots out of the game, so his loss would actually be for the greater good while the NHL continues to grow in spite of him not being in it.
To think his retirement will affect anything other than who the league markets next is delusional.


#2235242 Crosby has "concussion symptoms"

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 December 2011 - 09:24 AM

Yes let's wish that a player never plays again because the media promotes him after having one the best starts to a career in the history of the game.

Stay classy wing's fans.

This is awful news, he's such an important player for the league, it will not be the same without him. Such a shame.

Wow, over-dramatize much? The NHL has survived the retirement of Bobby Orr, Gordie Howe and Wayne Gretzky; what would make this worse?


#2234985 Loyalty Question

Posted by vladdy16 on 12 December 2011 - 08:39 AM

I'm all for watching hockey in general, but I would never, ever wear another team's colors. I was even a Shark's STH, but didn't buy any of their gear.
