#1986677 Andreas Lilja?

Posted by edicius on 18 May 2010 - 11:40 AM

He also played less than half the minutes. He was effective. He was also second in hits for defenseman. He was solid on the PK as well.


One fewer game played too in the postseason. Give him that extra game and he'd likely have been 2nd in blocked shots to Brad Stuart. Wasn't too shabby during the regular season either, with 21 blocked shots in 20 games

I'd like to play a little stats game. Divide shots blocked by time on ice. That'll give an accurate depiction of who's blocking the most shots.

Stuart: .053 shots blocked/min
Rafalski: .053
Lidstrom: .039
Kronwall: .058
Ericsson: .047
Lebda: .043
Lilja: .074


Let's try the playoffs.

Stuart: .079
Rafalski: .059
Lidstrom: .044
Kronwall: .064
Ericsson: .035
Lebda: .000
Lilja: .107

Wow, that Lilja sure does suck at shot blocking. It's not like he's the best on the team.

OH WAIT, HE IS. By a pretty large margin, to boot, especially in the playoffs.

#1985723 Sidney Crosby - The most hated player in the NHL

Posted by edicius on 15 May 2010 - 08:47 PM

Honestly, you honestly believe that Sidney Crosby, just because he can, decided not to shake Lidstrom's hand after WINNING? How much do you have to hate Crosby to make that statement?


Well, after he remarks he made about Lidstrom and Datsyuk during that whole ASG weekend debacle (basically implying that Lidstrom was faking his tendinitis, saying that the suspension was their own fault, etc.), it wouldn't surprise me. Kid doesn't think much of his fellow players unless they're on his team.


#1985634 Sidney Crosby - The most hated player in the NHL

So either your wife hates something she knows absolutely nothing about, which makes me wonder about your wife. Or, she simply hates him b/c you're always whining around your house about him like a little baby.

So which is it? Your wife a bit loony or are you a Crosby? AKA a whiny, little *****. :P


Bah, in my house, I complain more about officials than I do Crosby. :P

But I'll give you a prime example - when watching the last Wings/Pittsburgh game on NBC, my wife was in the kitchen and I was in the living room watching the game. The broadcast, as per usual on NBC, was saying "Crosby" nearly every third word. My wife poked her head out of the kitchen and said, "All I hear is 'Crosby, Crosby, Crosby'. It's really annoying. Are there any other players on the ice?" I didn't have to say a word and just laughed. :lol:

I remember during the olympics when you had a ton of posters on here who would say, "My friend (or girlfriend) doesn't even watch hockey and they said to me, "Who the hell is that whiny looking kid? He's such a ******. Why do they keep focusing on him?" Quite a marketing strategy.


I'll concur with that. My wife doesn't follow hockey but even she hates Crosby.

Glad someone said it.


#1984369 Crosby Should Get More Blame than Ovechkin

Posted by edicius on 12 May 2010 - 10:40 PM

Plus he was a -1 overall for the series. I think Ovechkin still ended up something like a +4 in his series. What annoyed me even more was that during the postgame, Crosby couldn't give one iota of credit to the Habs, just like he refused to give any to Zetterberg for shutting him down. Plus, predictably, he whined during the postgame about the penalty he took. "I don't understand how you can call that penalty 10 seconds into a Game 7..." Well, Sid, technically the rules aren't supposed to change whether it's Game 1 of the regular season or Game 7 of the SCF. You f***ed up, you pay the price. Own up to it, you baby.


#1983120 ECSF Game 6

Posted by edicius on 10 May 2010 - 08:50 PM

Hilarious. Ovehckin puts 10pts up in 7 games against the Habs and people call him a choker. Crosby puts 5pts up in 6 games and he's still the anointed one. :lol:


But...but...but...the Caps didn't make it out of the first round so Crosby's better, waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!

:P

I've been saying get rid of him ever since we brought him into the coaching staff.

Isn't it odd that ever since he joined the staff that we've dropped from one of the best defensive teams in the league to one of the worst?


Same here. It's not a coincidence that our defense and PK tanked once he was brought aboard. Any team he has joined has had the exact same problem. Google it.


#1981383 Thanks for the Great Season, Detroit!

Posted by edicius on 08 May 2010 - 11:42 PM

Can't win 'em all. We weren't even supposed to make the playoffs. Then we weren't even supposed to make it out of the 1st round. When all is said and done, this team actually overachieved. You did us proud, boys. You've played a lot of hockey these past few years and frankly, you deserve a rest.

And a message to the Habs/Bruins/Blackhawks/Sharks...one of you better beat the damn Penguins.


#1976684 Which team's fans are most deserving of a good Tasing?

Posted by edicius on 05 May 2010 - 02:26 PM

Pittsburgh, but only if we can tase the players too. That would show Crosby what it really takes to flop around on the ice. :P


#1976682 Ritola in for Williams in game 4?

Posted by edicius on 05 May 2010 - 02:24 PM

You could put a blueberry muffin in for Williams and I'd be fine with it.


#1972488 Crosby the greatest?

Posted by edicius on 03 May 2010 - 02:56 PM

Why is it always about Crosby? You'd think that Stills, Nash and Young weren't talented in their own rights as well.

The irony of that is that Taylor Lautner actually appears to be a Wings fan. :lol:
