#2596380 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Tampa Bay Lightning 5

The Wings effort is about on par with these thread titles.

Ok, can someone explain to me--in a non-biased way without using the word "attitude" or any of its synonyms--why people seem to hate PK sooooo much? Because I *really* struggle to see what is so outrageously offensive about him. I get it--he's similar to B Smitty in that he has immaturity and impulsivity issues, but SO DO A LOT OF PLAYERS. I never see the same vitriol pointed in their direction. Would people seriously not want him on the Wings? Or is he only hated because he's on the Habs? This is an honest question, help me understand.


I hate EVERYTHING about him! Well except his hockey skill, he's really good. And his personality, he's passionate and I'd like to see some Wings have that. And he doesn't really dive any more than anyone else. And I don't mind that he plays for the Habs. It's not his fault. So really it's not his clothes or attitude or abilities, but everything else I hate. That other stuff.

Uh oh, somewhere out in space there's a hockey fan floating around.

Better get this in before the game starts:

$1 for every goal by a defenseman. X

$5 for every shut out. XX

$5 for every series win.

$100 for a Stanley cup win.

$200 if the red wings lose in the cup finals but a red wing wins the con smythe. Because why not.

$25 minimum donation for a good cause.

Total tally after 5: $36

Its brutal. Not to sound like Don Cherry, but I miss the hockey that I grew up with. Subban would be made to answer for his cheapshots in the form of a fight. Nowadays these guys can het away with anything and that's why you see these insane slashes and hits from behind. There is no physical punishment to deter this garbage. It makes me sick.


It was never a deterrent anyway, it still happened, otherwise you'd say, "I miss old time hockey when this never happened and there were never any fights because the threat of a fight was enough to stop cheap shots."

#2592214 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by Mckinley25 on 11 April 2015 - 12:03 PM

I'm all for having guys on the team who will back other players up, but the era of the enforcer is over. Having a guy who is only good at throwing punches and can't skate, shoot, or score is nothing but a waste of a roster spot. Now if you have a guy that can fight, as well as help the team offensively or defensively, then that's different. But just some meatbag with a uniform who is a liability anytime the puck gets near him...nah. 


You're forgetting one important detail; without players like Orr, hockey = soccer.

Want proof? Smith recently played the puck with his hands and was penalized. I think I've made my point.

You can't tell because the picture's cropped, but they're in Brian MacGratton's bedroom.

Getting ready to drive down, win please.
Thought datsyuk was playing?


I think the second Nyquist is actually Datsyuk in disguise.

Sure looks like it.

Since he can't play hockey, and enforcing clearly is ineffective, I think he's found his true calling, instead of a 5 minute major, send the dirty players for seven minutes of heaven with McGratton and we'll see cheap shots disappear!

What Bufflin needs is 5 minutes alone in a closet with Bryan McGrattan.  Then he'll change his evil ways.  


Because McGrattan is so good at making out?

Yes. The Maple Leafs fans have suffered long enough. As a Detroit Lions fan, I must say that I feel their pain. 


 
Plus, I always like to see the Original Six teams do well. I'd rather see them hoist the Cup than someone like Anaheim. 


No no. No no no, no team with more cups than Detroit can hoist it. We root for Detroit or teams with zero cups. That's how it works :)

Sports are crazy, someone else does all the work, I accomplish nothing, yet I feel so happy for myself. Thanks people I've never met!!

Man this team is frustrating. When they give 100% effort this is what can happen.


Other than being prone to defensive mistakes, when we lose it looks likes there is no effort, I rarley feel like a game was lost that should've been won. When they play hard, good things happen.

When was the last time Z scored?


I don't know but Larkin's grandma was alive.
