#2380143 Concerned - we might not make it in to the playoffs

Posted by greenrebellion on 04 April 2013 - 10:38 AM

Look at the bright side, every game matters!

 

For most of the past 20 years I've taken the regular season for granted, but this year pretty much every game feels like a playoff game.  Enjoy the ride...

Agreed. These premadonnas are a diamond dozen. It's a doggy dog world out there so these kids shouldn't be taking stuff like this for granite.


Diamond dozen?
Doggy dog world?

Go Kings Go.

And I'm rooting against Pittsburgh.


#2294820 Will #5 be back?

Honestly, I'd like to see him retire. I have fantastic memories of Lidstrom's career and I want to remember him near his best rather than watch him slowly turn human.

I'm all for playing Dallas, but rooting for sixth seed could backfire if San Jose wins the Pacific!

A Wings win is always good, but a Wings win that contributes to keeping San Jose out of the playoffs? Priceless...

Win in regulation boys.

What a game by JOEY!!!!


#2248954 Time for my Cleary update.

Posted by greenrebellion on 24 January 2012 - 11:42 AM

For someone coming off a 26 goal campaign in 68 games (which equates to 31 goals if he played 82 games)...this criticism seems awfully harsh.

He might be past his prime and what he's able to bring to the table will start to decline, but demonizing him like this is a massive slap in the face to what he's provided this team over the years. He's coming off his best season ever!

He's not a top tier talent nor is he expected to be, he's a hard working player who battles and shows up for key games. Not only that, but he's very versatile and can play on any line, doesn't gripe when he gets demoted, plays the same hard working game. What's not to like?

I haven't read this whole thread, so maybe its been mentioned elsewhere...but...is it just me or has Ericcson been playing a very solid game recently, especially on the defensive side where his positioning is solid and decision making is much much better.

Was soooo rooting for Conks in this game. Solid road win in a back to back effort with the backup goalie, what else can you ask for?


#2243280 1/8 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blackhawks 2 (OT)

Posted by greenrebellion on 08 January 2012 - 10:15 PM

Hopefully they come back in the next few games and give Conk another game, would be nice to get them both rolling.


#2243250 1/8 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blackhawks 2 (OT)

Posted by greenrebellion on 08 January 2012 - 10:10 PM

That third period had so much action, especially towards the end. WHAT A GAME....Conks may have had a bit of rust to work off early on, but HE WAS HUGE for the last 50+ minutes of the game.


#2233214 Realignment decided - 4 Conferences

Posted by greenrebellion on 06 December 2011 - 11:23 AM

This might open the door to a European conference since you could set it up to only have a couple of road trips under the new format. Not saying I'm a fan of international expansion, but hasn't Bettman mentioned that in the past?


#2233056 Realignment decided - 4 Conferences

Posted by greenrebellion on 05 December 2011 - 10:07 PM

I must be on something, but I love this change. The return of INTENSE rivalries and divisional hatred will be astounding given the amount of times you'll see the same teams during the regular season and in the first and second round. Plus, the chance to play teams like the Canucks and Sharks in the Stanley Cup finals. Finally, the improved travel schedule should provide the wings the extra juice they need when making a deep run in the playoffs. Bravo Bettman, one of the few good things you've done.

And LMAO at the Wings being one of the teams that voted against this, they basically got exactly what they were looking for, a dramatically improved travel schedule.

Neg away...
