#2085902 12/27 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Avalanche 3 (OT)

Say what you want about Chris Osgood, I don't think I've smiled that big after watching a Wings game in a long while. Congrats, Ozzie!

#2084067 Frederick Meyer levels Milan Lucic

Jack Edwards has to be the worst/most annoying play-by-play guy in the league. And that's including Jeff Rimer.

#2074086 Darren Pang's freudian slip

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 08 December 2010 - 02:27 PM

Hopefully this doesn't become a big deal because it's not at all. He just got ahead of himself while thinking of the word, "way" and "white" slipped out. I was expecting something worse, and I think you all know which word I'm talking about...

#2056749 Hudler + Helm

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 03 November 2010 - 04:03 PM

Hudler isn't an NHL caliber player anymore. I can't wait to shift him off for a sixth round pick. He's overpaid, and unmotivated. He's just going to drag everyone down that plays around him. Keep him in the pressbox unless we have a rash of injuries.

I agree. Modano will start putting up points if he has Abby and Cleary as his wingers. Hudler doesn't fit the style of this team anymore.

That hit is clearly shoulder-to-shoulder. What is the debate here?

I can't believe I didn't notice how funny the title of this thread is when I first clicked on it.


#2046428 Leafs are in 1st place overall!

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 14 October 2010 - 01:21 PM

For the record they had 14 shots on goal last night.

That is just abysmal.

I didn't watch the game, but it's the quality of the shots, not the quantity that counts. As long as they're going in, I guess.

I agree with most of your points except for the 4th line. They did their job and kept the puck in the offensive zone for the majority of the time they were out. No one expects them to score in every game, so they'll get their chances eventually. But yeah, I'm feeling really good about this team. Cleary just looked so much faster and you can tell he's out to prove himself.

#1998588 How much better would we be looking with Leino and Kopecky

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 12 June 2010 - 12:10 PM

Hindsight is 20/20, my friend. Besides, Kopecky still sucks and Leino played himself out of Detroit and his attitude didn't help either. I think we'll all soon forget about the Leino trade once Hudler is back. I have a feeling that he's going to surprise a lot of naysayers.

#1997948 Adam Burish: Chris Pronger Is The Biggest Idiot In The League

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 10 June 2010 - 11:49 PM

I don't know why, but after this series I actually don't mind Pronger and hate the Blackhawks. The 'Hawks are just one of those teams that is cocky and young and you think they'll be put in their place but then they ended up winning the Cup, which just irritates me to no end. I mean, they deserved it in the end, but, just like last year, it made me sick to see a certain team win the Cup. Also, Burish's comment just makes him look like an idiot as well. Moving on.

#1994248 Report: Hasek headed to the KHL

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 04 June 2010 - 10:37 AM

Hopefully this signing will drive some of the talent back to the NHL since no one in the KHL is going to want to face the Dominator :sly:

#1993123 Datsyuk and Zetterberg

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 02 June 2010 - 01:27 PM

Totally agree.

If they were paired up right from training camp I definitely think they'd find their chemistry again. You can't split them up for a a year and a half and then throw them on the same line for the last 5 minutes of a must-win game and expect them to tear s*** up.
They need some time together, without that pressure of having to create magic out of thin air.

Personally I'd love to see it. I don't think Babs will do it because he thinks it's a waste to have two of the best centermen in the game on the same line, and while that is a fair point I think it's also a waste to not take advantage of the way they can dominate games if they're on the same line. Depth is great and all, but I kinda want the Wings to once again have a line that makes opponents go "oh s***".


#1989530 Bettman Lied To Me

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 25 May 2010 - 01:07 PM

Not to get too far off topic, but what I don't understand is why NBC airs the first two games of the series, but not the 3rd and 4th.

What if either team sweeps the series? Then you'd have the Cup ceremony and the end of the NHL season being aired on Versus, where more than half the country wouldn't even see it. I don't like this partnership with NBC. The way they dictate the scheduling is horrible for marketing the league.

#1986432 Over/Under?

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 17 May 2010 - 01:17 PM

After watching the game yesterday I have no doubt that the Sharks are going to get their way with calls for the rest of the playoffs. They played well against us and probably deserved to win either way, but for everyone who isn't a Sharks fan, if San Jose wins the Cup this year the victory will be somewhat tainted by the questionable officiating they received throughout their run.

He's just getting ready for having to play in Nashville.
