#2447247 10/23 GDT: Senators 6 at Red Wings 1

Posted by Mckinley25 on 23 October 2013 - 06:42 PM

It's good to see that after being healthy scratched for three of Detroit's best games, and then making his way back onto the lineup because of injury, and finally playing one decent game, Brendan Smith is being rewarded with top pair minutes.  Other young guys can't seam to crawl their way onto this team, yet Brendan gets top minutes for some unknown reason.
What's that you say?  It's good for his confidence?  Definitely.  In the sense that anyone would be confident if all they had to do was play a decent game out of every ten in order to get prime minutes.  Hell, with that as your only stipulation Kyle Quincey ought to be promoted to defenseman of the world and play alongside Superman with the Incredible Hulk and Thor as a second pairing.

Thor's a turnover machine and Superman refuses to use his body.

The players for the most part are fine with the goal, which was really sick but they aren't fine with the celebration afterwards, which I can understand. Great goal, unreal night but tune down the over the top celebrations they aren't well received in hockey.

Remember when they used to throw their gloves in the air and shoot them with their sticks?

I think there' s an awful lot of hyperbole necessary to claim fightless hockey would be dancing on ice.

Larionov.  I neither play chess nor drink wine, but I'd like to do both with the professor.

We were on the biggest free agent defenseman's short list of 2 teams, Nash's short list of 6 teams and I thought I heard Doan said he was interested in Detroit at some point. I don't think Detroit has completely lost its luster.

It was going to take a hit when #5 left no matter what, I think we'll be ok.

If we keep acting like this, no free agents are going to want to sign here.

I say load up on offense, and give big minutes to Smith, Erricson and Kronwall so they can take the next step.

#2110411 Top 5 Movies You Turned Off/Walked Out Of

Posted by Mckinley25 on 05 February 2011 - 12:53 AM

Hey now I wasn't putting anyone down. I said you need an imagination and attention span. Both are true and neither are insults. To be interested in the fantasy genre you must have an imagination. However that's not to say that those not interested in the genre don't have an imagination. See what I mean? And to sit and watch a 3+ hour long movie you definitely need the attention span. Again, that's not to say that those how can't sit through that long of a movie don't have an attention span. It's saying that if the movie doesn't interest you, you're not going to watch 3 hours of a movie you don't like. I can see how you misconstrued what I meant, but my words were intended to be facts not insults.

I have an imagination and an attention span and I hate the 2nd two Lord of the Rings films. Hell, I like Berlin Alexanderplatz, so you know I have an attention span.

I like Elf, as far as Ferrel movies go, everything else is meh...

Reservoir Dogs is severely overrated. So is Ocean's 11.

^all my opinion of course ;)

#2038371 Ericsson on notice?

Posted by Mckinley25 on 29 September 2010 - 11:07 PM

Yes, with our luck based on a whopping two players. You do realize that there have been many others players who have gone on to do equally bad or even worse upon moving to other teams, right?

Yes, I realize that. I also don't actually think he'd win the Norris even if he did succeed. My sincerest apologies for a poor attempt at humor.
