The old cliche of "if you don't notice him, then he had a good game" works well for Marchenkos game.

#2639213 Dreger: Ryan Johanson is in play

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 24 November 2015 - 09:21 PM

I feel like it has been fairly evident over the course of the last couple seasons that Johanson's problems stem from long before Tortorella came around. Not sure why you think he's the one pushing the kid out. Seemed to me Johanson's hasn't ever seen himself in Columbus long term. No matter what contract he signed.

#2627777 9/30 Exhibition GDT : Red Wings 7 at Penguins 2

What is the point of the league not maximizing the amount of eyeballs that can watch the game? I can certainly understand this game not being televised nationally, but why not at least in the two markets involved?

#2622940 Franzen's Gift to Nyquist

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 12 August 2015 - 02:01 AM

Am I the only one who took this as some dry wit from Franzen? I thought he was implying Nyquist did not like Babcock. Franzen always seemed to have a pretty dry, sarcastic sense of humor in his interviews.

#2598185 WCQF : (4) Nashville Predators vs. (5) Chicago Ham Hocks

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 22 April 2015 - 12:50 AM

I can sympathize boys, always a double-edge sword when it comes to OT in the playoffs and living in the eastern time zone. Thankfully, after spending 25 years in Detroit, I get to enjoy this years playoffs from my new place in Seattle. Only 10:45 here. :clap:

Surprisingly enough, they just showed the shots 50 to 46 in favor of NSH. They must've worked over the Hawks early on in the game. The entire OT seems like Chicago has been on the PP. Couldn't believe the Preds had the shot advantage.

Cliche post of the evening: nothing beats OT playoff hockey, especially when you're team is not involved. So much less stressful.

#2597373 Sharks & McLellan part ways

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 21 April 2015 - 06:16 PM

I've been hearing for the last few seasons what a great coach McLellan is, but i've never really known why the media is always banging that drum in unison. What has he really done that makes people think he's so great? Is he a great motivator? Great strategically? Hasn't won anything as a head coach. Great regular seasons have been marred by post-season disappointments. I'm not saying he's a bad coach, just not sure what it is that makes people think he's a great coach.

They were talking on either Hockey Central or MvsW last week, can't remember who, about whether Buffalo landing McDavid entices Babcock to want to take charge of the Sabres. Honestly, I could see that as something he would be interested in, especially McDavid. Assume for a moment McDavid does live up to the hype of being the next Crosby. Wouldn't a coach love to have that kid as his center piece? And Buffalo does have some pretty good prospects coming. Pegula has enough money to allow Babcock to write his own check as well, so the money aspect can be thrown out the window.

Well that basically sums up Jurco's season...

#2578289 LeBrun: Babcock for COY and Holland for GMOY

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 04 March 2015 - 04:48 PM

Just cuz it's from ESPN doesn't mean LeBrun is just some hack writer. Seems like a irrational reaction. He does some of the best work around the league and is highly respected. If Bobby Mac switched to ESPN, would you brush aside his articles too? Just playing devil's advocate.

Pierre wonders why people think he's a creep, and then he says Jimmy Howard has a pretty smile...

#2571595 Why are the Wings Afraid to Block Shots?

Off Topic: too funny seeing some of the old school names that came up in this thread.

#2568383 Report: Red WIngs interested in Franson

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 04 February 2015 - 08:00 PM

I miss capgeek. How am I supposed to find out with ease how much cap space we'll have long term now?

NHL Numbers is still around. I've only poked around there once since CapGeek went down but it seemed to be essentially the same thing.

+10 points for originality

#2555154 All-Star voting

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 09 December 2014 - 09:43 PM

I would much rather none of the Wings go. Rather, they should enjoy a relaxing vacation or rest an injury. Taking part in the NHL sponsors weekend long circle jerk that is the All Star game seems counter productive.

Can we cast negative votes for the Wings somehow?
