#2509833 Best Hits from the Playoff Streak

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 15 April 2014 - 03:20 PM


Just saw this on youtube, felt it was appropriate on the eve of the playoffs getting going. (Not for us but...whatever)


Shawn Burr was a hell of a hitter in the early 90's, and Vladdy was af****** beast. Damn shame we didn't get to see more of his playoff hits.

#2506751 A plea to Holland.

Posted by wings87 on 05 April 2014 - 09:00 PM

Please for the love of all that is good and holy, get rid of Lashoff and Kindl. If not both then at least one of them. The pairing of Kindl and Lashoff is a goal waiting to happen. We've had amazing success inserting young forwards into the lineup, why not try a defenseman?

I don't care if it's Almqvist, or Sproul, or whoever, nor do I care if management thinks they are ready. No one thought Jurco, Glendening, or Sheahen were ready either; and they are doing just fine.

So Holland do us all a favor and bring in some fresh young blood.

#2501650 Callahan called up from GR.....

Posted by rick zombo on 26 March 2014 - 01:06 PM

Rick, big difference here. bert is done. toast, finished, career over. Callahan is just beginning. maybe he becomes something, maybe not. we don't know. But he needs to play so we can find out. There are many reasons why he was a step slow. unfamiliar, nerves, told to focus on skating, etc....... I still think he is a 4th line checking guy, which is fine. maybe adds 10-15 goals per year. Great!


That’s my point. Hard to nitpick Callahan’s 5 minutes of ice time when Todd BerTANIC is floating around out there like no one told him he already sank many years ago. 


I’d take Callahan at this point. I know Babcock likes his “big bodies” but Bert took a stupid careless penalty just because he refuses to keep his goddamn stick on the ice with TWO HANDS all the time. Plus he turned the puck over at least 6 times. 

#2500502 Pens Twitter Fail:Ask Neal Anything...

OMG how did I miss out on this? *bangs head on desk*


Why bang your own head when you could get Neal to do it for you?

For the sake of Jurco's ribs, it's too bad he didn't get 5 and a game on the spot.


No guarantee, but if someone tuned up Comeau after the hit on Smith he probably doesn't give it to Jurco as much.  If we didn't do anything about an obvious dirty hit why the hell would he be worried about a cross-check?

Even with a healthy roster, winning a regular season game against a team that isn't a bottom-feeder has been a monumental challenge. I've had to pray to God for two points against the Washington f****** Capitals. Every game is a Game 7. Every lead is blown. Every shootout is a choke job. Pride, heart, will, a chip on the shoulder, something to prove - nope, none of the above. We're made of glass, and we take it up the ass.

For the first time in a long, long time... I'm actually livid with Ken Holland. This is embarrassing.

#2488346 Why did Franzen get 10 min game misconduct?

Posted by wings87 on 01 March 2014 - 04:09 PM

Neal is a tool. But I don't like Franzen slashing players( he did it to one of the Ottawa players late in the game, don't remember who) in the back of the leg and running away either. Franzen shouldn't be fighting especially after all his concussions, but he should cool it with the cheap shots too.

I'm so glad Tatar turned out to be awesome as a big f*** you to babcock.

Posted by F.Michael on 21 January 2014 - 07:19 AM

I'm sof****** sick of this. I lived through the 80s please don't make me do it again

You, and me both.



Except in the 80's, we'd be gooning it up right now with Probert and Kocur. 


This sorry team can't give its fans anything to root for or enjoy.

Let's get back on the topic of the game instead of fixating on 13 year old girls.

And who wouldn't want to play for Babs?  His system stiffles offense, he consistently rewards undeserving players, and you never know who your linemates will be from shift to shift.  The guy's a genius.

Per Khan he's getting paired with Quincey.


Poor kid

The babs hate is unreal. U guys r silly

It's not hate. This has been an issue with Babs for awhile now. He's beyond stubborn with some players getting undeserved minutes, but won't promote two offensive playmakers on a team that struggles to score goals. Nyquist on the fourth line is embarrassing.
