#2604549 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

First things first this off-season. Re-sign Dan Cleary. The rest will fall into place from there.

I want to pipe in and say that I think it's sad when people chant the negative stuff. I wouldn't even chant "Tampa Bay sucks!" I don't think they suck. I don't think any team or player in the NHL sucks. They are all competitors in a difficult league. I saw a post here that said "somebody should injure Tyler Johnson". I mean, really? When he scored the two goals and carried his team, I felt happy for him. Of course if the Wings lose, it would be major heart-ache, but that's not going to make me "hate" other players or teams. I just cheer, cheer, cheer for the Wings, and try to feel good for other teams and players when they have success. I would like to see Joe Louis Arena focus on positively impacting their team and let go of the silly "Bulls***", etc. chants. It's not going to happen, though, "the mass" just doesn't operate that way.


This is hockey not holiday on ice. I'm also happy for some players from other teams but if one attends a game and is into the crowd-stuff I for sure expect negative chants towards the opponent. The job of a crowd is to make cheer for the home-team and make it unpleasant for the opponent to play in a building. That  Kate Perry sign from a Jets fan was just pure gold

Howie is in a sticky situation only because Petr is proving to be the real deal. He is the only one this entire season I believe to shutout the Lightning....twice! When you have a 5 million dollar goalie sitting because of some kid, it grants discussion on a message board, even after a solid W from our boys, and Peteee especially. Boyle could have changed the tempo on that breakaway, but this time Petr had his number. Great win, great effort, and lets keep it rolling! Tampa is going to come guns blazing, but we just may have ourselves a forcefield in goal.

Am I the only one who's shocked that the big lug Boyle is probably faster than nearly half the Wings roster?

I meant don't race them to 5 goals....has to be a low scoring game. Hope you understand now


I understood : ).  I was just purposefully being obnoxious for the sake of humor (in my opinion).  No offense intended.

What other way is there to win besides outscoring the opponent?


I just assume it was meant that the Wings aren't gonna beat Tampa trading chances, and that they need to slow the game down and be defensive solid to try and win a low scoring game.

with all the negativity towards our boys (rightfully so) most of us expected this kind of game without the W, and we got that W so hopefully, and I mean HOPEFULLY, we only go up from here. The guys now are seeing that we got goaltending, so loosen the hell up and use them legs.


The way I look at it is what if it were the other way around? That would have been infinitely worse. They stole a win in a game they were dominated. I have no doubt they will look much better in game 2. Babs is too good a coach to not make the right adjustments for the next game. The effort was definitely there, they just need to play smarter.

Game stolen. Means nothing if they don't come out stronger next game


True but it does mean we don't get swept

Datsyuk, Mrazek and Glenfiddich are the stars.  Everyone else should have their paychecks withheld.

I don't think that has anything to do with his larger point about shootouts not being involved. He was simply stating they aren't a part of the game then. Jimmy was great two years ago in the playoffs anyways.


And one good playoff out of five seasons ain't bad.   :rolleyes:


His quote seems like he just doesn't get it.  Neither does the team or Babcock.  They'll probably use this same quote all season.  

Howards quotes sound like what i call a excuse. Better show up on friday these points can't bite us in the ass.


He gets these quotes from his brilliant GM, who has a book of quotes he uses for every excuse.  

#2429776 So.. what are our expectations for this roster?

Posted by Based on 12 July 2013 - 02:57 PM

Wings vs East


2011-2012: 10-7-1

2010-2011: 12-4-2

2009-2010: 9-6-3

2008-2009: 12-5-1


If this means anything then i have no worries about the eastern conference 

#2428195 Filppula to Tampa 5 yr $5 million

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 July 2013 - 06:06 PM


Because Ericsson just came off of a successful season as a top-pairing defenseman, whereas Filppula just had his worst season since he was a rookie.


Nonsense. He was signed by Tampa Bay to a five-year contract!


Ericsson did have a good season, but he still shouldn't be a top pairing defenseman and Filppula shouldn't be a top line center.


 It's just the way it ends up sometimes when a team doesn't have the proper personnel to play those roles.  

What is the weather like in Tampa? What should I pack?


Plenty of hair gel and tanning lotion.  


Also, get ready to pass a lot of pucks to Stamkos for one-timers.  Should be more fun than passing it to Cleary and watching him fall down.

#2400686 Ovechkin -- Laziest Play Ever

Posted by Guest on 09 May 2013 - 05:34 PM

Still, he put up a 41 goal/95 point performance this season. Hes not paid to play defense, hes there to put the biscuit in the basket. 



... and this makes it OK for him to lazily coast through the defensive zone while the rest of the team plays defense, and in doing so blow an easy opportunity to cancel what ended up being the game-winning goal for the Rangers.


Ovechkin, as with every other player on the ice on any NHL team, is there to play hockey. This was not a hockey play, and no coach on the planet would use your reason to excuse such behavior.
