#2259771 Canucks Vs Detroit in Motor City

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 21 February 2012 - 03:01 PM

Entertaining literary calisthenics? :rolleyes:

The fact of the matter is the game obviously means something to you. But you and your other Canucks friend still haven't acknowledged that these teams have played each other three times already this season. And even if Vancouver does win then it means they split the series with Detroit again this year. Yet this game somehow is the one that counts? You're right in that it's a matter of professional pride, just like it would be not to lose to Columbus. Because they're professional hockey players. They take professional pride in not losing hockey games.

So far you're staying true to form for a Canucks fan. Condescendingly telling fans of other teams the "truth" about hockey and being so self involved that you can't imagine your own view of the hockey world isn't fact. The general subtext of your posts is that Vancouver is so special of course this game means a lot to Detroit and its fans. The reality for the Wings fans I know, is it just isn't. The vancouver games have made for some really entertaining regular season hockey, but it's still just another regular season game in the stretch run.

I don't know if the Vancouver media somehow is playing this up to be a big deal or if it's your own creation, but it's getting comical. It's like in years past when the Blues would talk about the huge rivalry in Detroit, when to Wings fans it wasn't even in the top 5.

Was it bad of me to of seen the Nashville game had more importance than the Nucks game? I mean they are the Nucks..... :rolleyes: But in all seriousness I really don't feel this is a big game. I like watching these 2 teams play each other because there is a lot of skill on the ice but In no way do I stop and say "man this one is a touchstone game, we have to win this one" Not sure that I have ever seen that with a nucks game in regular season play.


#2259300 freeredwings.tv stops streaming NHL games

My response was aimed solely at the "blaming" comment. It's one thing to set up such a site, but another to then complain when the copyright owner steps in and exercises their legal rights.

I really didn't see him as complaining. I think it was more of just letting people know why it wasn't there anymore and to thank people for using it. But that's just how I read it.


#2259163 Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game.

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 19 February 2012 - 10:37 PM

you think that was me? i hate the sharks.

don't quit your day job, columbo.

You both have the same 5 year old writing style at times so I just figured. Oh well Sorry there bud.

"Sharks May overcome your streak. Otherwise it would be a great game."

As a fellow shark, and hockey fan, I'd like to bid you a good luck to your next game. All I know is that your streak must end. It will eventually, I do not know if it would be by the sharks, but regardless, I shall take pleasure in it. Regardless of what team, you guys are setting yourselves for a great sigh. A long one.

Anyhow, win or lose, It'll be a hell of a game to watch.

BUT....

If the sharks break your famous NHL record of yours.... oh lord, your will never heard the end of the sharkie fans.... lol.


With regards, and with great anticipation of tmw's game,

-imdw

This writing style sort of reminds me of another person that posts on here. Pretty FISHY to me. Just plain STINKY.....Maybe I'll just go eat a TACO.

#2258349 22 is the actual record

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 18 February 2012 - 08:19 PM

But But when the record was broke back then the planets were aligned in the right quadrant of planet x times the atmosphers lower pressure = the rate of netrons from the 5th star towards orion's belt. and That only happens once every 1000 years so there is no way the wings can tie the record. SO SUCK ON THAT WINGS FANS.



yea...that's how crazy it sounds to me.hahahaha WE WIN.

Or better yet, co-host it with Crymson. :hehe:

Oh dear. hahah=) I would still listen. But you need to throw in someone that you guys would debate with...I can think of a few that would be good from here=)

#2257412 Blackhawks' Losing Streak: Nine Games and Counting

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 16 February 2012 - 01:17 PM

I wonder if the "Detroit sucks" chant is still going strong over there.

I'm sure it's going even stronger. That's the only thing now that makes the Hawks fans happy apparently. Even if their team is winning.


#2256570 Howard to start Sunday

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 14 February 2012 - 02:54 PM

expected...it just wouldn't be the same if the sharks weren't snowing howard while outscoring the wings yet again.

And it wouldn't be the same with out your lame attempts to troll. It was funny at first but now you just look foolish. I guess the mods still find you amusing. The LGW clown.



Great to hear. I'm glad "Howart" will be back so soon but I'm glad that we got to see j-mac do so well.


#2256221 Mike Comrie announces retirement at 31

For some odd reason I read it as mike commodore announces retirement at 31. hahahaha


Yea I totally forgot about comrie.


#2251363 Alexander Radulov Incident

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 02 February 2012 - 04:29 PM

I don't see anything at all about this to indicate he did it on purpose.

Their reactions afterwards pretty clearly show they were both surprised. I read somewhere an interview with both guys and they both said it was completely accidental.

People making a big issue over nothing.

So him looking back at his coach 2 times and then hitting him with the stick was no indication of him doing it on purpose? he even looks at him while swinging


#2250942 SI: Sidney Crosby to visit spine specialist in Calif.

HWSNBN went to the bathroom today all by himself!!!! *front page of nhl.com,tsn,espn and marykay.com


Do we really need to know every time he steps on the ice?

p.s.

#2240748 Cole suspended three games

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 02 January 2012 - 02:19 PM

According to Cole, he had Abdelkader lined up but Abdelkader moved at the last moment, exposing only his head to the check.
Those are Cole's words...and the replays back that up as it looks like Abdelkader tries to slide the puck by Cole and slip by him.
That should also be an important detail when discipline is applied. Which brings me back to my statement of the game being too fast to eliminate those types of hits, which is the goal by using suspensions against players who commit those hits. Players need to be aware of where they are on the ice. Abdelkader had his head down as he received a pass from behind in the neutral zone. He has to expect a hit there, like Shanny said. That's a suicide pass.

What do you expect cole to say? Of course he's going to say Abby moved his head at the last sec...but if you watch the reply..without blues bias you will see he doesn't move his head at all. far as abby knowing he will get hit by going in the middle? im sure he did..but not hit to the head like he got. cole had all the time in the world to go low.

But whatever, I don't have a problem Cole being suspended as it was a hit to the head and that is the rule...I do have an issue with the number of games. Three seems excessive based on other suspensions this year for the same amount of games or less.


brendan smith got a total of 8 games at the start of the season for us with a similar hit. so 3 games seems a tad much but fair.

And until there is the same standard for suspensions on star players as there is for lesser known players, the system is severely flawed. The fact it was Datsyuk (annual Lady Byng candidate and superstar player) that threw the hit had a lot to do with him not getting a penalty and not getting a suspension. If Jackman hits Datsyuk like that, he gets a penalty and probably suspended.

How many crosschecks does dats have to take before one is called? Or are you one of the blues fans that missed all of those?

And don't tell me that an elbow or shoulder to the head is ok as long as you get the body too. That's simply not the case. If the head targeted and the principal point of contact, it doesn't matter if contact with the body is made. Datsyuk lunged up into Jackman's face, hitting his head with his shoulder. I fail to see how Jackman's head wasn't targeted on that play. The Detroit announcers even said he threw a shoulder to his head.

Thats the whole "primary point of contact" which in coles hit the head was. In dats hit the body was. It was very clear in both hits.


He had his head down, but picks up Cole at the last second as he tries to slide the puck by Cole and slip by him. That's how it looks to me.
If not, what was he trying to do with the puck if he never saw Cole?

If abby was trying to slip past cole then there would have been movement on abby's part which there was not. Abby may have seen him at the last millisecond but still doesn't justify the hit to the head.
