#2373330 10/24 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Ducks 1

Posted by GoWings1905 on 24 March 2013 - 09:20 PM

It just feels like that tying goal is coming, or at minimum a penalty soon.

These two points would be huge playing again tomorrow night.

Yzerman's on the ice? What, Ken? :lol:

I was transported back to 1997 for a moment, it was glorious.

#2372879 Perron's ridiculous dive.

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 March 2013 - 10:37 AM

I have a better idea, state in the rule that a dive automatically negates the penalty on the other team.


Exactly...the only way you are going to limit the amount of diving in the league is to ONLY call the dive and not the other guy.  Odds are if the player had to dive, then the other infraction wasn't really enough of a infraction anyhow....


Problem is, they won't do this because the certain players wouldn't be able to play in this league anymore because they would be in the box all the time....ahem....Crosby...ahem....

#2365653 Holland says those dreaded words, "Our Deadline Addition"

Posted by VM1138 on 06 March 2013 - 01:10 AM

Holland's job is to make this team competitive, and not sit back and wait for some magical healthy team. That never happens in hockey. Also, Bertuzzi and Sammy aren't going to push this team to the next level. That's what a good trade does.

So no, getting healthy isn't like a trade acquisition.

Regardless, as you all said already, trades are unlikely because no one wants to anymore.

We need a new GM.  Kenny has done great things for us in the past, but we're not in the past anymore; we're in the present.  In the present, we're mediocre.  I don't like a mediocre Wings team.  I want a superb Wings team, and in order for that to happen, s*** needs to change.

#2362344 Milbury rips Ovechkin

Posted by Phil Lesh on 27 February 2013 - 11:52 PM

I've never seen anything as ridiculous as Ovechkin's reaction to being tapped in the head.  He falls to his knees, looks up at the rafters with his arms outstretched, glides forward 20 feet before collapsing into a pile.  Amazing!


Those kind of theatrics only work for Crosby.

Red Wings looked like Jackman's penis tonight. 


Small, soft, and manhandled by the Blues roster.

How do you let 2 guys get behind you on a PK?



Good game by Jimmy.  Glad they pulled him though.  He doesn't need to get shelled any more than he already has.

#2341643 Battle of Pennsylvania (Philly vs Pittsburgh)

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 19 January 2013 - 05:06 PM

If I were a Pens fan BLARGH

Sorry lets try that again, I vomited in my mouth. If I were a Pens fan, I would still be sick of it always being The Crosby Show. There are a lot of other guys on that team, and last time I checked Crosby doesn't play wing, center, D, and goalie on all four lines. It would get old.

Please, NHL, NBC, WHOEVER stop shoving Crosby down my throat. You're gonna get the bill for my treatment of tonsil herpes.


Here's the deal though - a great deal of the Penguins fanbase idolize the pedophile-enabling Joe Pedterno as well.  So some hero-worshipping is already deeply engrained within their fanbase.

#2338910 Toronto fires Brian Burke

Posted by Guest on 09 January 2013 - 06:40 PM

I always liked the teams that Burke put together.  Vancouver was a solid mix of size and skill, as was Anaheim, as was the 2010 Olympic team.  Obviously that didn't happen in Toronto but I have to wonder how much control Burke really had relative to other GMs.  I mean, Toronto has a long history of internal power struggles, and resultant s***ty teams.  I wouldn't blame too much of that on Burke.


Burke added only the Sedins and Kesler to Vancouver, and he wasn't around long enough to see them benefit from that. In Anaheim, he inherited a very good team and added to it a gift-wrapped Pronger and a gift-wrapped Niedermayer. He then screwed up the team in the next season by adding an aged Schneider and an overpaid Bertuzzi (whom he bought out the very next offseason) and dumping Andy McDonald to clear space for an out-of-shape Scott Niedermayer to return.


I'm sure Burke had plenty of control in Toronto. He was, after all, supposed to be the team's savior, and he was paid accordingly. More, I doubt he would have taken the job had it entailed brooking interference of any significant kind. The fact that he did so poorly was almost certainly his fault alone. This was the first time he'd taken over a team in full rebuild mode, and he did an awful job of it. It was clear from his groveling apology speech last year that he knew he was on the verge of being fired.

#2338829 Toronto fires Brian Burke

Posted by shoobiedoobin on 09 January 2013 - 12:38 PM

Burke is and always has been overrated. You could just see this day coming the moment he signed in Toronto, and even moreso when he started making his trademark bonehead moves. Not to mention he's always so bitter and angry over everything, and is a total ******, so firing him can't be that hard a task for whoever has to do it lol. The guy practically asks for termination.

#2326089 2012 Lockout Watch

Posted by toby91_ca on 20 August 2012 - 08:51 AM

Bettman alone isn't responsible for 3 lockouts. Both sides are responsible. It takes two sides to come up with a deal.

Actually, if there is a lockout, Bettman and the owners would be 100% responsible. The same would be said about the players if there was a strike, they'd be 100% responsbile. Funny thing is, a lot of people don't necessarily see the difference between the two. I know that's not where you are coming from, you are seeing it as two sides needing to come to an agreement or there will be no hockey come October. Therefore, if there is no hockey...both sides to blame.

There is some truth to that, but to be perfectly accurate, the players are willing to start the season as usual and continue to negotiate and reach a deal. There is no reason they can't continue to operate under the existing deal until a new one is reached. The thing is, the owners have said, they have no interest in starting the season under the existing deal, therefore, they will lockout the players if there is no agreement by September 15th. It's really a negotiation tool, if they don't lockout the players, they don't hold a lot of power to get a good deal done for them.

If the owners don't lockout the players (which Bettman already said they would), the players could choose to strike, but that wouldnt' happen.

All reports say he wants to play for a contender and Detroit isn't one with their current defense.

But Pittsburgh is with their defense?

#2317337 How bad are we if our roster is now finalized?

Posted by Guest on 09 July 2012 - 01:42 PM

We were a 5 seed last season. We've gotten a lot, lot, lot worse defensively. We haven't improved that much offensively. Assuming that we're going to be a six seed next season like some of you are...

Red Wing arrogance and ignorance.
