In Topic: ECQF - Series C - Penguins versus Blue Jackets

Yesterday, 07:58 AM

It is typical of around here....complain about reffing....non-stop, even when the Wings aren't playing.  It does get pretty tiresome.

 

I'll admit to not watching most of the game last night, but from what I saw, CBJ got away with taking a ton of liberties, there was definitely no favouritism going the Pens way from the little that I saw.

 

From a pure stats perspective, CBJ took a grand total of 3 penalties during the game (yup, gotta be a conspiracy here).  Pens took 4 penalties by the way, theirs were all well deserved of course.

 

Can we be a bit more original around here (at least when the Wings aren't playing against them?)

I think that is the trick.  Getting under the skin of the Penguins is how you beat them.  That has been the case for the past few years anyway, not sure if that's changed.  If they get by CBJ and then face PHI in round 2, that team will do a very good job at getting under their skin.  It works very well on Malkin and used to work pretty well on Crosby....we'll see if that's changed.

 

The other recipe is a great goaltender or collapse by Fleury.


In Topic: Bleacher Report: 5 BOLD predictions

14 April 2014 - 09:15 AM

Well, not surprisingly, bold could have been one adjective to use to describe the predictions.

 

I must admit though, I was pretty surprised at how close Howard came to 25 wins.  21 is actually quite a bit short, but a lot closer than where I thought he'd get to when the predictions came out (he went 14-9-3 from that point....respectable).

 

All the others were laughable.


In Topic: ROW vs Point based system

14 April 2014 - 07:59 AM

Had that been applied this year, the Wings don't make the playoffs.  The rest of the top 8 in the east stays the same except for TB and MTL flipping spots.


In Topic: Ryan Malone arrested

Ryan Malone needs to be Suspended or Banned from the NHL. The NHL needs to make a stand. And if found Guilty he needs his money taking from him and kicked out of the NHL. And his name should also be X'd off the Stanley Cup. We need him to be the Poster Child so this stuff never happens again. I know what I'm saying is wrong and stupid right? But Pete Rose got Banned form the MBL for just Gambling on the Game for life. And was forever banned from being in the Baseball Hall of Fame. Even though he deservs to be there for all of his Hard Work he did in his Career. To me Ryan Malone should be Banned for life. Cause I see what Pete Rose did was not even as bad as what he did. 

 

Also Games are always Rigged and the Sport is always being Gambled on we just don't hear about it everyone alright? Ryan Malone what the hell where you thinking taking Drugs I hope you get your Championships taking form you and everything you ever achieved taking from you. Sorry kids look up to these Over Priced Players who have everything but do this kind of stuff.

I like the passion and somewhat agree with the sentiment, but other than that...completely dumb, dumb, dumb....idiotic.

 

You bring up baseball and Pete Rose.  Wonder how MLB would handle this?  I know in the NBA, if guilty, he'd get a 2 game suspension, that's about it.  Actually, a 2 game suspension would be more than what someone in the general population gets...which amounts to a loss of license for a short period of time.
