#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?


#2554775 Podcast questions?

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 08 December 2014 - 05:13 AM

WIIM is the only consistent (monthly) Red Wings related podcast I have discovered. But there are a few great overall hockey podcasts that are great for following the sport as a whole. My favorites are The Puck Podcast (weekly), Marek vs. Wyshynski (generally Mon-Fri), Hockey Central @ Noon (Mon-Fri), and The Illegal Curve Hockey Show (weekly). Any other hockey podcasts beyond those 4 is pretty hit and miss when it comes to consistently delivering new episodes and/or can tend to ramble on about topics irrelevent to hockey. Some may disagree but that is what I have found. Anyone know of some other hockey podcasts?

"We had good leadership, obviously in our room, we had good leadership on the bench, the vocalness of Dan Cleary and a few unique guys," Babcock said. "Then we just dug in and found a way to get it done."

 

Just to play devil's advocate against the anti-Babcock/Holland crowd.




#2549803 No more dry scrape before OT?

Posted by WhiteLightning91 on 18 November 2014 - 07:54 PM

Good to know the GMs are tackling hard issues like dry scrape instead of trivial affairs such as assisting the referees with video replay review.

Someone clue me in on the Disney.com references I see periodically on this site...
