#2361238 2/24 GDT : Canucks 3 at Red Wings 8

Posted by FlashyG on 25 February 2013 - 05:17 PM

Last nights whining from Canucks fans has inspired a new GDT for me.

 

Hockeytown0001 already does a fantastic job with them here so mine won't be necessary, but here is the header, which I'll add the rosters/stats and standings to.

#2361364 Wings sign (D) Brian Lashoff to 3-year, $2.175m extension

Posted by Crymson on 26 February 2013 - 12:59 AM

Yeah, if solid means being average and not screwing up as much while having no physical presence.

 

Yes, the scoring touch is nice, and if he keeps up the scoring and becomes a threat from the blue-line, I'll gladly eat my words.  However, he's still error and penalty prone (although not as bad as previous seasons).  He's slow to the puck, doesn't use his size at all, and is LESS physical than Pavel Datsyuk.

 

I do give Ericsson credit for dropping the gloves with the one dude a couple games ago, although Tootoo, intercepted the fight.  I was looking forward to see what it would look like to see someone punching down at someone as they ponder how large of a mistake they made.

 

Hopefully Kenny will prove me wrong again on Ericsson.

 

Are you sure you aren't trolling? Because everything about that post is wrong.

Wow.  When I left the score was tied.  I was shocked to see the outcome. 

 

Man Luongo needs to get out of Vancouver.  Sounded like he was awful tonight, but leaving him in for the whole game is telling.  As is yanking him last year against the Kings when he was playing well. 

 

Good luck with that contract though.  

 

Great to see the Wings stick it to the Canucks though!




#2357169 Sens Karlsson suffers lacerated Achilles tendon

Posted by esteef on 17 February 2013 - 11:01 PM

Who does that when trying to pin a player?  The majority of players....this is the current technique being taught (i.e. lifting your leg up in between your opponents legs).  Complete fluke that his skate came down made contact with an unprotected spot on Karlsson's leg.

 

I think it would take a complete pyscho to do that on purpose.  Maybe Cooke is a pyscho and he did do it on purpose, I don't know, but I think that would be a gigantic leap to make and I think pretty much everyone close to the NHL (except the OTT org.) agrees that this was a normal, multiple times a day play that ended badly.

 

So lifting your leg SKATE FIRST is currently being taught?  I don't think so.  Surely an NHL caliber player of numerous years in the league knows how to properly perform pinning another player against the boards without stomping his foot skate-first into the opponent's leg.  It's not like Cooke had another player checking him to knock him off balance or anything, he had all day to initiate and properly pin Ottawa's best d-man against the boards without the skate blade making contact.  Unfortunately he did not and it wasn't some damned accident.

 

Using consensus among NHL and tv "experts" is laughable.  They will simply fall in line with the league's decision because we all know who affords their paychecks.  This isn't the first time, and it certainly won't be the last that they royally screwed up.  The Sens owner and GM are absolutely right.  Cooke is a piece of s*** and shouldn't be in the league.  He's had enough f***in' chances.

Wow. 

 

Two points stolen by Jimmy Howard with some help from Dats and E.




#2351369 Mike Ilitch's Apearance

Posted by StormJH1 on 05 February 2013 - 02:44 PM

Any Wings fan who can tell you with a straight face that they don't have respect for Illitch is absolutely nuts.  He's the definition of a "fan-owner" and his businesses have been extremely important in providing jobs, interest, and morale to a city that is about as dysfunctional as it gets, as anyone who's ever lived anywhere else would tell you.  He basically spent the Tigers out of the cellar.  Four Cups, Six SCF appearances, and two decades of consecutive Playoff appearance for a team that doesn't have a single draft pick higher than #19 overall (IIRC) on its roster.  I'm 31 now, and if you take the Tigers, the Red Wings, and even friggin Little Caesar's Pizza away, I'm not even sure I recognize my childhood.




#2351412 Mike Ilitch's Apearance

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 05 February 2013 - 04:38 PM

I agree, many of the things that Illitch has done have benefited the city.  He pursued projects which made him rich AND which tangentially helped the city.  I never followed the logic that you have to show some sort of reverence to Illitch because he's done so much for Detroit, and by "done so much" we mean "built himself a casino".  I'm glad he doesn't mind spending money on his sports teams, I love watching them win.  But he's as susceptible to ribbing as anyone else and perhaps more so, when he does things like announce a new arena with all it's fanfare, buy up all the property around the new arena which will skyrocket in value after the arena is built, and then ask the public to pay for the arena.  What a charitable soul!

 

While of course he's done things that benefitted him financially (he is a successful businessman after all), he's also made business decisions that benefitted Detroit when he could've gone elsewhere. 

 

I wasn't saying the guy is a saint.  My main point is I think it's a little childish to slander someone as senile and drunk, particularly on a website called "LetsGoWings" when he's a large part of the reason there's something to root for with the franchise.

Lots of jump and hustle.

wow this went up fast :) I'm glad our second half of the back to back is the jackets though, better than it being the hawks

Sit outside on the porch and watch the game while spitting my chew into a bucket.

Merica!

The GDT is up. It's finally upon us!

Show the newbies who's boss.

Thanks for all your GDTs Hockeytown001, much appreciated :)

Homer certainly was a character, and his presence will be missed.  Both on the ice and in the locker room.  Fair winds and following seas, my friend.

Good luck with the photoshop issues, Mike.  Let's hope the Wings show up better than their jerseys.
