#2080820 swallow the whistle night

Posted by dragonballgtz on 18 December 2010 - 04:56 AM

The only thing I really had a problem with (and not much of one) was the Ericsson penalty. It was exceptionally weak compared to everything that was let go (Helm getting mauled from behind, Zetterberg sitting on someone behind the net, etc), and it led directly to the first Chicago goal.

It's not huge, and the Wings should have played better instead of looking like crap, but I'd rather refs swallow their whistles for the whole game and not call ticky-tacky crap, or call it at least 50% of the time.

I'm guessing a lot of people had the CSN feed tonight via the NHL Network (as I did), so they wouldn't have even heard it.

Flames Fans Blame Refs Sounds like LGW during the playoffs. They bitched because of too many penalties we ***** because we didn't get calls our way.

During the 3rd period I thought Detroit was going to get a diving call because players started to go down to easily. The seemed to care more about trying to get a call in the corner rather than crash the net and score a goal.

#2074193 RWC's new prospect rankings

Since that big game has Tatar been better or up and down still?

Emmerton is +14 that is saying something when only 3 other players on the team are close to that +/-.

#2070215 The Red Wings Power Play

Posted by dragonballgtz on 29 November 2010 - 12:10 AM

I think the biggest thing is getting pucks to the net quicker. What I mean by that is that we are trying to get rebounds off these bombs from the points which are mostly being blocked or deflected. I would like to see us use wrist shoots more often and aim for the goalies pads instead of his chest.

Another thing I see are soft floating slow passes that get picked off and what is funny about that it is usually guys like Datsyuk that do it. Passes should be crisp, accurate, and just enough zip on them so the defenders cannot reach it with a stretched out stick.

At the beginning of the year Mo really got on my nerves with his floating on the point of the PP and he still does it. When the puck gets cleared I notice he usually just looks at the bench and signals for his replacement to go chase it. I get really pissed when I see him do that.

You can usually tell when the team is frustrated with the PP, that's when they start to shoot it in then not chase it down.

#2070205 massive lead for Detroit now

Posted by dragonballgtz on 28 November 2010 - 11:49 PM

1.5 v. 1.2 = massive?

I think he looks at it as if we maintain that we will be in for a 120+ pt season other teams around 100+ points.

The way I look at it is we are still only 6pts away from being 13th... still to close to the rest of the pack. I'm sure that's how Babs looks at it as well.

#2067075 Controversy in Pittsburgh

Posted by dragonballgtz on 22 November 2010 - 03:25 PM

I don't see any controversy. The puck wasn't under control by the goaltender, and then it found it's way into the back of the net. That's a goal any day of the week.

What the hell do you people want? Want him to just skate to the bench and never show emotion? The expectations you put on this kid are ridiculous, just sit back and enjoy his skill, he's the greatest player in the generation and I'm at a loss for words why people are losing out on great entertainment because they are jealous we don't have Crosby on our team.

He was telling the ref to review the play, do you think he was telling the ref "HEY IM SIDNEY CROSBY AWARD ME A GOAL AT ONCE" come on now, the ref just said to him something along the lines of "we'll look at it calm down", like any other ref would if the same situation happened to any other team.

The ref lost sight of the puck and blew the whistle before the puck crossed, no goal. Play is dead when he decided to blow the whistle also he has like 1 sec of intent timing, considering how they called May's goal last year inconsistency makes it a controversy.

Trade him

#2063788 Ville Leino

Posted by dragonballgtz on 16 November 2010 - 05:25 PM

Thank you. I'm thrilled Sammy walked, seriously. Thought he was way overvalued.

At his skill level and likely other options, he was most likely entitled to that statement.

I rather have Sammy at $2.5M than Hudler at $2.8M

...and it's likely that even with their movement clauses up, neither of those guys are going anywhere.

Sit Hudler and put Miller back in.

Raf is back w00t Not sure if I like him with Big E though. Miller sits again grrrr

#2058099 Franzen will play tonight; Hudler will also

Posted by dragonballgtz on 05 November 2010 - 03:39 PM

Seems, that Eaves will sit tonight!

Even with him injured I rather him play instead of Miller. Helm and Eaves on the PK is sexy.
