#2415831 Proud of our boys

Posted by thegerkin on 29 May 2013 - 10:52 PM

One month before the playoffs, all I wanted was the 22 year playoff streak to continue. And 14 intense playoff games later, I'm happy. With an OT loss in Game 7 (which was brutal) against the #1 team, I can only be happy that we got to see them play in big games and gain valuable playoff experience. Great season boys! Can't wait until training camp! :)

Usually I can tune out NBC announcers, but I had to mute the entire game because of all the mouth-loving for Chicago

Pierre: "You're right on Edzo" Edzo: "Hey, you're a homer too?" Pierre: "You got that right Edzo. I remember when Edzo playing in Nigeria for the Lack of Water club".

Ah Taves (yeah, piss on that garbage name Toews). What a poised captain. As he and Z were talking to the ref, it's ok for Taves to slash Z (albeit minor) while whining to the ref. I certainly can imagine Stevie Y or Lids doing this all the time, because pissing and moaning makes you captain material.

I wonder what kind of pathetic, sheepish display we'll see from the two of you if the Wings win the series.

Sorry, I guess that was misunderstood. I was thinking in more of a statistical manner. The whole "80%+ of the winners of Game 5 will win the series" is a very steep hill to climb. Add to that, Detroit would have to win Games 6 (Detroit) and 7 (Anaheim). I just don't think this team was built for anything past the first series this year (and the injuries were incredibly ridiculous). I think our team is moving in the right direction quite clearly and our depth is fantastic. The rooks have been great considering the situation. So little Playoff experience for about 1/3 of the team. I would easily eat crow if the Wings get to the second round because I would be so stoked because we get at minimum of 4 exciting Playoff games guaranteed. HOPE I'm wrong and the Wings overcome the odds. I mean, they have earned Playoff rights like the other 15 teams. Just an opinion of mine. :)

Woo hoo! I just got called up to the Red Wings from my garbage beer-league. I play defense, so I'm replacing Quincey, Smith, and Kindl. I have a good feeling about this....

Selanne is a great talent no doubt, but honestly, he is always laying on the ice. It's like the wind blows him over.




#2395367 Brandon Prust Comments on Paul MacLean - "Fat Walrus"

Posted by thegerkin on 03 May 2013 - 04:12 PM

While I have given MacLean a hard time over the years, at least I have the guts to say it in person (just the Walrus stuff, and just the look, not the "fat walrus" BS). He's a good guy and seeing him for years in Quad City I got to meet him a few times. I even asked if he hated the Walrus comparison. He said something on the order of 'no, I'm the one who grows it' lol

Ken sounded like he was going to mess himself on that goal call lol

A split on the road (especially against the damn Ducks) is something to build off of.
