#2115618 Jakub Kindl

Posted by thegerkin on 13 February 2011 - 03:34 AM

In my opinion, I don't think he possesses the NHL-caliber talent. I've seen him more than enough in Grand Rapids and he never stood out, except for the repeated mistakes and turnovers. Sure, I'll give some benefit-of-the-doubt on the "Rookie" option, but after watching him play, he's not making "rookie" mistakes and learning, he's repeating the same mistakes continously. Maybe he may just not be "fully cooked", I don't know. But I just don't see the NHL-caliber defenseman in his play.

#2103819 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by thegerkin on 23 January 2011 - 05:59 AM

I started to read this thread at the beginning, but gave up and figured just fast forward to the end...

The waiver system is very flawed. As some have pointed out, this puts a nice big spotlight on it and hopefully some positive change will come of it. Ideally, yes, Kenny did all the legwork, but he obviously knew there was no way in hell Nabby was getting past the bottom feeders, especially at that contract. What are Holland's true intentions? Nobody but Wings management knows for sure.

As far as Nabby not reporting, and the NHL apparently threatening that he would have to play the entire next full season with the Islanders, I'm glad Nabby told the Isles to f*** off. If they REQUIRE him to play, as many have said is possible, just stand there in goal. Don't even try. Hell, standing behind the net would be even better. Nabby's not a potential hall-of-famer, so what if his stats suck for a bit, it will only last a VERY short time. It may be insubordination, but he's already said he WILL NOT REPORT. The NHL will only lookf****** TERRIBLE, as will the Isles.

Snow is a terrible GM for a terrible organization icing a terrible team. I am still of the opinion they should be required to put DiPietro in net for all 82 games even if he's injured as punishment for his ludicrous contract. Wang can go suck, well... a wang. The Isles should just fold already.


#2072041 Goals Scored During Final Minutes Of The Period

Posted by thegerkin on 02 December 2010 - 08:56 PM

I know many people have wondered how many goals the Red Wings have given up during the final 2:00 minutes of a period. I was a bit bored, so I broke down the statistics. I charted the goals scored for and against during the final 2:00 minutes of a period during regulation (last 1:00 minute of OT). The stats are pretty close, for and against.

Enjoy!

#2064240 11/17 GDT: Blues 3 at Red Wings 7

Posted by thegerkin on 17 November 2010 - 06:19 PM

My best friend is a huge Blues fan, so there is always a lot of trash talk when we play the Blues. Hope we play a full 60 minute game tonight.

Althought ill probably have to miss it due to having to be on a ambulance most of the evening. :(

But....thank god for DVR :)


Better riding along than being along for the ride! :)

#2056577 Class Act Organization

And this is the exact reason that the Detroit Red Wings are the best organization in professional hockey (and possibly in all of professional sports). I hope your brother gets well soon! :)


#2053627 "We respected the other guys a lot more than they do now."

Posted by thegerkin on 28 October 2010 - 01:24 AM

He's absolutely correct. The obvious difference between today's game and Richard's generation is the extra safety equipment. Players these days feel they can throw the elbow because the other guy has a helmet on or get their stick up high because the other guy is wearing a shield. The extra equipment gives today's players the feeling that they can go out and just plain wreck the other guy. As far as the hits from behind, it needs harsher enforcement of the rules. Some players think they are just finishing their check but that's just a poor excuse.

#2044849 Kirk Maltby to announce he is retiring

Posted by thegerkin on 12 October 2010 - 03:03 PM

So bummed to hear this :( Malts was as much a part of the Wings identity as anyone. He will be missed. Thanks for the years of service in the trenches, Malts! :clap:

#2043185 Superimposed ads on the glass

Posted by thegerkin on 09 October 2010 - 07:10 PM

If anything, the good old multi-repeat commercials are the most annoying. f*** Sam Bernstein, the cross-eyed kid, his shyster son, and the dame. They are way more offensive than anything in/on the rink.


#2039211 10/1 Pre-season GDT: Toronto Maple Leafs at Red Wings

Posted by thegerkin on 01 October 2010 - 08:05 PM

I don't give a damn about people's opinions about Malts, I LOVE to see him out there face-washing and just being a pain in in the ass :thumbup:

Ummmm, just turned on the tube and all I'm getting is af****** Tigers game....wtf???


Try channel 901 (Comcast FSD+). Only TV feed I could get, as the NHL HD feed was blacked out for me.
