#2385426 4/16 NHL GDT

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 16 April 2013 - 06:58 PM

Agreed... Would love to see Minny take a lost tonight along with the blues... even though I have elliot in net tonight for fantasy... sigh haha... 


On a side note i know i will be taking in every moment of silence I can and I am rooting for a big Boston win tomorrow for the city of Boston and Martin Richard...



#2383612 We control our own destiny...

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 12 April 2013 - 08:01 AM

The Wings are currently sitting 8th in the west but the fortunate thing about our situation is we currently control our destiny. With the standings looking like they currently do right now.




The other very interesting point is the two teams that trail us, Phoenix and Dallas, are both on our schedule in the remaining 8 games. The thing that scares me is we could be going in to game 48 against Dallas with a Winner gets playoffs game. Kinda like in 2010 when the Rangers played Philly and winner went on to the playoffs. Philly ended up winning that in a Shoot out. It's usually pretty obvious to say if you play better then the team below you then you will seed higher, but lucky for us even if we win just as many games as they do the rest of the way. We are still in.... This is going to be a fun final 8...

If you were Ken Holland it would read
"I like my lunch"

I know the other person has a steak, but I don't want to trade my hero, and my pudding cup for a steak... Ill trade for the steak if they will take just my string cheese...

#2377425 Brunner hasn't hit the wall. He has slammed into it.

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 31 March 2013 - 05:13 PM

Jesus Christ......


I'm not giving up on this kid by any means, but he is running on fumes.


And because we can't rely on him at the moment, we are OFFICIALLY the same team we've been for the last 4 years.




Wanted for hire: individual who can put the puck in the net.

I think the longer season is really getting to him. Combine that with the fact that he needs to play with talent to really be effective but is stuck on the bottom lines isn't helping either. I think he will have a lot better season next year when he is more conditioned for the length of the season.

#2377075 3/31 GDT: Blackhawks 7 Red Wings 1

hahaha... That effort right there by Franzen depicts this game perfectly... Instead of trying to beat him or slam on the breaks and try to make a play... a soft little backhand flip on net without giving one s*** haha..

#2373689 Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 25 March 2013 - 12:22 PM

I think people need to stop looking at Iginla for a rental. We rarely acquire guys as just a rental and anybody trading for Iginla wont be considering him a rental. If Detroit trades for him it will be because we are resigning him and most likely letting fippula walk. I know people want to trade Filppula for something but he will be important to us in a playoff run. 


I know people say they want Detroit to sell but we just don't do that. We have a small window left with Datsyuk in his prime and then we lose one of the best players in the game. Yes, we may not be named a TOP contender but this weekend we showed we can beat the number 2 team in the West, we have played fine against both Minny and Vancouver and our games against Chicago were all close ones that a player like Iginla could really help us win. At some point you have to sell a little bit of your future to play for the now. I have seen people on here asking for a Power forward, asking for a legit winger for Datsyuk but nobody wants to pay for it. We are not just going to mind a Milan Lucic hanging around out back of the Joe with a pair of skates over his shoulder. 


The price is high on iginla but once again we have people saying they don't want to sell future parts which aren't even sure about but we are sure that Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Franzen only have a short window of opportunity left. 


I say we give it a shot because I do not see us trading Filppula unless it was in a package for an upgrade.


EDIT: With all of that being said... I still want to know the price on Clowe... 

imagine having a real true power forward in his prime and not a 35 yr old rental


Imagine the price tag...

#2367450 3/10 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Miller, Brunner, Abdelkader, Quincey and Kindl for a minute of our PP... Bascially Babcock waving the white flag.... what a joke...

#2347262 Brad Stuart destroys Gabriel Landeskog

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 26 January 2013 - 06:30 PM

Haha Brad get's smoked in that fight. Only time I might agree with the Sharks announcers but why is it everytime a big hit is delivered like that something like that happens?


Like it's a league standard now for someone to come after you if you lay out a big hit.


I agree but at the same time... it is there captain and young star.. I can understand standing up for him... Probert and McCarty would have throttled anybody for laying out Yzerman like that....

#2337074 NHL submits offer to NHLPA - **Suspension Warning Post #70 & #273*

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 30 December 2012 - 03:26 AM

NHLPA won't accept the deal as is, there will still be some back and forth negotiating just hopefully good faith and reasonable negotiations... 

#2334910 New fan.. need advice

Posted by Crashnburnluder on 28 November 2012 - 10:40 PM

Like many others have said, watch.... That's the best way to learn.. I can sit here and explain offsides and it would seem some what foreign... Watch what offsides looks like a couple times on TV and it starts to become more clear...

The best part is once you start learning the game and how it's played, you will slowly learn the little things players do that make them that much better then the rest of the guys on the ice.

Just watch hockey, and watch it as much as possible...
