#2511012 4/18 ECQF Game 1 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Bruins 0. DET leads series 1-0

Thanks for posting, I missed it.


What a *****.

 

That deserves a big fat fine.  Lucic is losing it. 




#2500424 Backes on playing against Malkin and Crosby

Yeah, I feel about Backes the way I always felt about Shane Doan.  The guy's awesome as hell but I cringe everytime I think about our guys going on the ice with him. 

 

Agreed.  Though I even have a little more disdain for Doan.  When the Kings knocked them out of the playoffs a couple years back in a very heated series, he was whining about officiating and threw a mini tantrum.  A lot of the Coyotes did actually (the series ended off a controversial hit from Brown) but I expected more from Doan.

Agreed.  Frankly I kind of hate him because of how he plays when it's against the Wings, but he's the kind of guy who plays on the edge that I'd like to have on the Wings.

I can't speak for everyone else but my fascination with him has a lot to do with the fact that he's a huge powerforward who's a stud defensively, chips in 20-25 goals and 50+ pts. a season, hits like a truck, plays hard every shift of every game, is a consummate leader, and doesn't seem overly douchey as a person.  But that's just me.

I don't get the fascination some of you have with this guy. Is this thread just another excuse to dream about getting him to the Wings? Because that quote seems like what anyone would say about going up against Sid and Malkin.

#2499296 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by dirtydangles on 22 March 2014 - 04:08 PM

Yeah, he's actually looked much better since that perfect pass to Ryan Smyth.

 

But to keep the nitpickers happy...why the hell did he kick the puck loose in the dying seconds? It could have given Minny a scoring chance at the very end there.

He killed like 10 seconds before that with the refs yelling to move the puck so I wasn't too upset. Shoulda had 2 goals tonight with the assist if the refs didn't go fully mental tonight.

Once upon a time Nashville also had Cody Franson and Ryan Suter.

 

I want their defensive scout...




#2495411 A great scrap ends in....A high five and a hug?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 15 March 2014 - 12:24 AM

 

The whole thing is a joke.  It just takes some people longer to get it than others. 

 

No, fighting has a place in hockey.  These kind of fights are sometimes fun, but meaningless if guys are hugging it out like that afterwards.  Fights due to bad blood or jumping in for fallen teammates are more fun and more meaningful.

Meh.

 

Guys like Dave Brown or Bob Probert would never get that theatrical after a fight.  I realize it's a job and some of these guys are close friends, but this is making the whole thing look like a joke.  




#2495474 Finally-TooToo called up

yes much needed .. even though hawks are gonna mop the floor with us in the madhouse (f***ers) at least we will see tootoo running around!

He'll provide energy but no offense.


It seems like energy is exactly what this team has been lacking lately. Plus it's not like the guy he's replacing brought a whole lot of offense either. So all in all this might be an upgrade to our roster.

There isn't a goalie in the league who lets in so many bouncy flukey goals as Howard... he has zero control of where the puck is, there's at least one incredibly s***ty bouncy goal against in every game.
