#2440397 10/1 NHL Out of Town GDT - Opening Night

Posted by CopenhagenWing on 02 October 2013 - 05:14 AM

For a nano second a Danish player led the league in scoring. Allow me to be excited as that happens once in a billion years.

Personally, I'd preferred they'd do something about the width but this is a step in the right direction.

Nice composure by the younger players during the 3rd.

#2291988 How do we fix this?

"Frank" it, pull a Pittsburgh.

Tank on purpose 5 years in a row for those early picks.

Curt, do you have an idea as to which goalie is starting the playoffs?

#2267187 Cleary, Bertuzzi, Hudler and Franzen

Cleary's been playing on a bum knee for at least half this season. Just sayin'...

#2260702 Somethings brewin'?

Living where I do and living with a BJ fan, I take issue with Rick Nash's hustle. He's constantly lackadaisically skating around unless of course there's a scoring chance and then he turns on the jets. Otherwise, it's floating in circles around the ice and an apparent allergy to backchecking.

To me, this is what comes to mind when Nash is mentioned. It certainly isn't hustle.

And I thought I was the only that notices that he misses the net every time he shoots.

Well, so does Hossa, Kane, Selanne, Perry, Giroux, Jagr, St. Louis, Iginla...should I continue? Oh yeah, and the guy some of you want to package Franzen for.

#2259700 Datsyuk out at least 2 weeks

What kind of knee surgery takes only 2 weeks to recover from?


And multi-million dollar assets don't visit the doctor you and I go to.

#2259674 Canucks Vs Detroit in Motor City

Further, if you look at the objective reality of the tie-breaking system (i.e. ROW and season series) you will know that in addition to "just two points" being on the line there is playoff positions and perhaps home ice advantage at stake on Thursday night. So with respect to your comment about the importance of season series, I just say you are objectively incorrect. I'm not sure why a Red Wings fan would downplay the importance of this game, but make no mistake, from an objective point of view this is a reasonably important game.

I'll give it to you, it's a 4-point game which is normally rare outside of division match-ups. As a Wings fan (and without sounding condescending) I'm not seeing it as much more than that, the reason being that even if the Wings get a win it will not do them any damn good if they lose the next 5 games.

Vancouver can play .400 hockey the rest of the season and win their division fairly comfortably. But even though Detroit has been able to claw out a slightly bigger points lead in their division, playoff position is at stake for the Wings in every game at this point of this season. A slump could drop them to the 4-5 slot in the standings.

To me, it is a match-up between two very good teams who play the puck possesion game I prefer watching but I'm not going to blow the importance of this game out of proportion.

correction, DET defeated VAN 2 of 4 games last year.

Never let the truth stand in the way of a good story...

#2246757 1/17 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Dallas Stars 2 (SO)

I haven't read this whole thread, so maybe its been mentioned elsewhere...but...is it just me or has Ericcson been playing a very solid game recently, especially on the defensive side where his positioning is solid and decision making is much much better.

Because of work I do not watch that many games but in the ones I do watch, I never really notice Ericsson. I'm of the conviction that if you do not notice your 3rd pairing D, they cannot be doing that poorly because you'd notice them when they mess up.

Ericsson is +16 so far this year. Could he throw his weight around more often...surely would be nice but he has been better than most people give him credit for.

:lol: Rupp just pulls Kopecky away as if the ref wasn't even there.

#2235226 12/13 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Penguins 1

One less win, three more losses, 1 more point. Baffling...

Keep your SO sideshow if you want but a win should be two points and a loss zero points no matter how it came about.

Zetterberg's back shouldn't be in danger tonight.

#2235219 Reason for not practicing for two days straight?

Posted by CopenhagenWing on 13 December 2011 - 08:15 AM

They will go from game against winnipeg to just a morning skate and then straight to game against pittsburgh, are they so pleased with the play so they let them get extra r(u)st?

Sounds like a bad plan to me...

Only on LGW...
