In Topic: 10/21 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Canadiens 2 (OT)

You guys are embarrassing. Quit whining about the zebra's. It's just the lowest form of complaining in sports.


The rule is the rule. Abby F'ed up and made contact with the goalie. Yes, Price leaned in for the call, but distinguishing that in real time is nearly impossible for a ref.


The no-goal is a moot point if this team could figure out the power play. If the Wings score even 1 tonight, they win.


As for crying about the defense, nope. They've given up fewer goals than all but 2 teams in the league. If you wanna complain about the offense from the back-end, that's a different story. It needs to be better. But defensive zone coverage has been fine. Lapses will happen to every team, every game. Overall, our back end has been more than adequate to win every game. Isn't that all you can ask for?


If you want to stand on your soapbox and blow a gasket over the lack of goal scoring, fine. Completely justified, and I will share your frustration. If you want to gripe about the bantam-level power play that has been on display, go ahead. Again, you are warranted. But the grumbling in regards to two or three Dmen every game is just a waste of finger strength and bandwidth. The defensive coverage and all members of the defense have been fine.

In Topic: Fan turnout at last night's Panthers' game

If the Panthers move, can the Bolts survive?

I don't see how the two are related...?

That's crazy weekday griffins games average like 1000 you can sit anywhere you want.

I read over the summer that the Griffins had the 2nd highest average attendance last season. I think you're off by a few thousand.

In Topic: Question about song

05 October 2014 - 09:10 PM

Ecstasy of Gold is a good tune, no lie.


But nothing comes close to this beauty as the greatest song ever used in conjunction with hockey...




Of course Burkie had to ruin all the fun cuz he's a crusty and pompous elitist who felt the song made the team seem amateur.

If Kronwall gets injured, and Ericsson s***s the bed, then you deal with the problem then. Until then, Cleary, Quincey, and Kindl take up enough bandwidth on this forum. I think we can save the whining regarding the "what if Kronwall gets injured and Ericsson sucks without him" dilemma for when we cross that bridge.

I tend to play Devils advocate with Quincey. He really is most of the time our 3rd/2nd best defensemen. I feel Ericsson has been a tad overrated here and would not look great with another partner

I never understand this argument. Player X only looks good becuz he's playing with Player Y. Well, what's the problem then? Ericsson will play with Kronwall during the season. It's like being upset that your tennis shoe doesn't feel comfortable when worn with a dress shoe on the other foot. If you're only going to wear it with the other tennis shoe, does it really matter???
