#2079948 Possible Winter Classic @ Comerica Park

Posted by RusDRW on 17 December 2010 - 02:08 PM

we already played. I think there are some other teams deserving. Pens, for example!


#2075071 Daniel Larsson's comments on Osgood&Howard

Posted by RusDRW on 10 December 2010 - 05:50 AM

Sometimes I feel for those players chosen by the Wings. Imagine, for example, Thomas Tatar. He is more or less NHL ready and he will be in the minors for at least one more year. What's about Mursak? Well, at least 25 organization in the NHL would play this guys in the major league. Don't forget that it is all about money not playing time. Spending excessive time in AHL means you're getting paid big bucks a bit later. I would hate this situation if I was Tatar, for example. From this point of view, I understand Larsson frustration, especially, considering that he wasn't even given a chance to show what he can do at the NHL level.


#2067500 All Star Ballot Results Thus Far

I hope nobody from the Wings will be selected. Resting for two more days is way more important physically and emotionally.


#2047579 We need...

Posted by RusDRW on 15 October 2010 - 05:44 PM

Last year I spent 6000 euros to come with my family to Detroit to watch three(!) games. They lost all of them. I don't give them what you say "benefit of the doubt"...


#2035139 Euro Twins versus Sedin Twins

Posted by RusDRW on 22 September 2010 - 12:54 AM

Euro Twins versus Sedin Twins

Game of 2-on-2 three bar. You have to hit each post and the crossbar. Just Datsyuk and Zetterberg versus Henrik and Daniel Sedin. Full ice surface. Who wins?

it is even.


#2032404 Line excitement

Posted by RusDRW on 10 September 2010 - 02:26 PM

I want big Bert to start using his size but I'm not sure if that will ever happen. Also, I'd like to see him use two hands on the stick more often. He tries to make pretty plays/goals but he should just be concerned about getting goals at all. I never understood why so many Wings fans hate him. I'm excited to see him and Mule and Flip play together. Mule and Bert could make some magical things happen if they play like they did in game 4 against San Jose.


I would like to add that we have a very skilled and very big line here. These two components can do wonders even without Bert using his size to punish people consistently.


#2031070 1996 World Cup of Hockey

Posted by RusDRW on 04 September 2010 - 07:07 PM

Watching it now, I almost forgot what a MONSTER Lindros was in his prime. The guy was out there every shift trying to punish people, and had tremendous skill on top of that. Truly scary player.


that's exactly why no one cried when people started to hit him in the head.

it does not matter how big you are.


#2026046 Crosby doesn't suck but he's a whiney little bitch, however.

Posted by RusDRW on 14 August 2010 - 10:01 AM

4) That Crosby left the Joe knowing that he got to Z and Jimmy Howard. That he could have hurt Zetterberg, and would have been allowed to fight Jimmy Howard (and easily win) with no repercussions. He got in their heads, and he knows that next game... it's on... and he has the advantage.


Crosby got nothing out of this except for frustration. Did you ever played hockey? If this is the case you had to remeber those feelings when your team got owned, you, personally, lost every single battle on the ice to THATf****** guy and even when you tried to send the message you got practically nothing out of this. This just adds to your frustration level. Perhaps this is just the mentality and Canadian players feel differently... However, I really doubt it :)


#2020511 Scott Stevens: The Definitive Reel

Posted by RusDRW on 29 July 2010 - 05:37 PM

:rotflmao: So the Cooke hit on Savard wasn't head-hunting,eh? The Richards hit on Booth wasn't head-hunting? Like i said, it doesn't happen a lot, but head-hunting in the NHL will always exist. Only a few teams carry enforcers?? :hysterical:

*New York Rangers: Derek Boogaard, Brandon Prust
*New York Islanders: Zenon Konopka, Trevor Gillies
*Philadelphia Flyers: Jody Shelley (Some people wouldnt consider Carcillo and Walker as enforcers, but they cause hell as well,so look at it as you will)
*Pittsburgh Penguins-Mike Rupp, Eric Godard
New Jersey Devils-Pierre Luc Letourneau-Leblond
*Buffalo Sabres-Cody McCormick
*Ottawa Senators-Matt Carkner, Chris Neil
*Montreal Canadiens- Well since Laraque was bought out, i'm sure they'll pick someone else up before the start of the sesason.
*Boston Bruins- Shawn Thornton (Gregory Campbell will cause hell, but i wouldn't consider him an enforcer)
*Toronto Maple Leafs-Colton Orr,Mike Brown,Jay Rosehill looks like he'll get more playing time.
*Washington-Newly acquired D.J. King
*Carolina-Looks like Kostopoulos is gonna be doing most of their dirty work, minor leaguers could be brought up
*Florida-Mike Duco(Played mostly in the AHL last year)
*Tampa Bay-Mitch Fritz (Nate Thompson,Steve Downie,and Mathieu Roy will cause hell, but i wouldn't consider any of them enforcers)
*Atlanta Thrashers-Eric Boulton, Chris Thorburn, Ben Eager, Boris Valabik
*Nashville Predators-Wade Belak (Jordin Tootoo)
*St. Louis Blues-Cam Janssen, B.J. Crombeen, Brad Winchester
*Detroit Red Wings- Kenny tends to pick someone up right before the beginning of the season
*Columbus Blue Jackets-Jared Boll, Derek Dorsett
*Chicago Blackhawks-John Scott
*Vancouver Canucks-Rick Rypien, Tanner Glass, Darcy Hordichuk
*Edmonton Oilers-Zack Stortini, Steve MacIntyre, Jim Vandermeer (Colin Fraser, Jason Strudwick, and Theo Peckham will mix it up as well)
*Minnesota Wild-Brad Staubitz (Eric Nystrom isnt gonna shy away either)
*Colorado Avalanche-David Koci, Cody McLeod
*Calgary Flames-Tim Jackman, Raitis Ivanans (Ryan Stone as well)
*Dallas Stars- Krys Barch, Adam Burish, Brian Sutherby
*Phoenix Coyotes- Paul Bissonnette
*Los Angeles Kings-Richard Clune
*San Jose Sharks-Frazer McLaren (Jay Leach and Kent Huskins will mix it up as well)
*Anaheim Ducks-George Parros, Kyle Chipchura, Sheldon Brookbank, Aaron Voros


"Only a few teams" carry enforcers..That's a great one :rolleyes:


Wow!!! Could you give all your thanks to Gary expanding the league to what it now is. I'm not even arguing about Chipchuras, Huskins' and GaryNasty or NastyGary... Those do not belong to the NHL. My fault. Never imagined so many trash is carried out.

Well in the case that headhunting does happen to some star players, team carry guy(s) that are commonly known as an "enforcer", or a guy that serves as a deterrent for that kind of play, such as head-hunting. Do you see a whole lot of head hunting?no. Does it still happen in the NHL? Absolutely.


Combine Nabokov and Fedorov's raw talent and you only have a mere spec of what Gordie Howe brought to the table. That is a bare fact.


I'm getting tired with How. Let it be HOWE. It does not change a bit for me.

Head hunting? In the new NHL? No, it does not happen. That is only one aspect I love about it. And there are only few teams that carry enforcers. Most of those are sore losers. See Edmonton, Minnesota (Am I right with spelling? Please, check it, 'cause I'm too nervous:), Atlanta, etc.

Comparing Fedorov and Nabokov to Howe is just damn asinine. But hey, Kontinental Hockey League right?


I didn't compare. Take it easy.

Posted by RusDRW on 29 July 2010 - 03:49 PM

You did just spell the greatest hockey last name in all of the world wrong on accident right?


No. Similarly to those in NA saying FedErov, NabAkov, etc.


#2020475 Scott Stevens: The Definitive Reel

Posted by RusDRW on 29 July 2010 - 03:47 PM

How is that not kockey? If you don't like getting hit and possibly take a couple shots in the head, dont play. Guys still get hit in the head today without any penalties being called on the hit. It's always been a part of the game and it always will be, no matter how hard the NHL tries to crack down on the issue, there's always going to be players that head-hunt.


are you blind or what? Would you like Boogard headhunting Zetterberg? Boll headhunting Filppula? I'm glad NHL removed this s*** from the best game in the world.

Posted by RusDRW on 29 July 2010 - 03:42 PM

Stevens was one of the best players in the game, he is a first year ballot hall of famer, he had plenty of skill, I just can't see how you can't enjoy and respect him, he is obviously not as good as lids but he is easily in contention with zubov and btw there was a red wings who played exactly like stevens don't forget


It does not matter to me who is going to be inducted to HOF after Bob Gainey. Scott Stevens did have some skill, some of his hits were indeed made according to rules.

PS Who is that Red Wing? Mark How? :)))

Posted by RusDRW on 29 July 2010 - 03:33 PM

stop this s*** already. All his "punishing" hits came from the right arm


would you like me to hit you in the head? It is not hockey. It is something different.
