#2400566 WCQF Game 5 GDT: Red Wings 2 @ Ducks 3 (OT) - (ANA leads series 3-2)

Posted by thegerkin on 09 May 2013 - 05:08 AM

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"

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

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

Had to turn off the game (can't remember the last time I did that). Hope the Wings are able to remove their collective heads from their collective asses. :angry:

Ah, nice to see that POS Hudler dive...

#2367857 Why shootouts may be a bad thing

Posted by thegerkin on 11 March 2013 - 09:01 PM




The Kemptville 73′s & Ottawa Jr. Senators needed 48 shootout attempts before the game winner on the 49th try. That's just messed up. :D

#2365905 Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

Posted by thegerkin on 06 March 2013 - 11:42 PM

It should be 100% the athlete's choice. Look at Kronwall. He has a visor, but it couldn't be pushed up much higher. Players choice.
