I love Don Cherry

#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.

You don't like the truth?

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.

...I was educating you.

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.

#2056406 Trade proposal

Posted by dragonballgtz on 02 November 2010 - 05:00 PM

.... 9GP.


I'm thinking trade deadline. Having someone with a $2.8M cap hit sitting is a waste.

Break up the third line please and thank you.

#2050834 The Third Line

Posted by dragonballgtz on 22 October 2010 - 03:35 PM

10% of a season isn't that significant. In 2008, we lost 10 out of 11 games which included a 6 game losing streak. If I remember correctly, that season ended pretty good for us. :cool:

That 10% for any team can mean the difference of not making the playoffs or making the playoffs by a point or more. A s***ty start to a season can be difficult to overcome for anyone. Eight games is 16 points, so lets say the 07 Avs won at least 2 of those eight games which would put them at 99 points for that season which would mean playoffs. Hell just one would of done it.

To say one game or even 10% of the season is not significant is absurd. Especially in the start every point earned makes it that much more important coming down the stretch. Giving coaches the ability to rest some guys down the stretch because you don't have to play catch up makes it more evident that every game counts. Every once in awhile you will hear Murphy talk about how Bowman wanted to start every season strong because he knew the importance of starting the season off strong.
