#2609047 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 20 May 2015 - 02:00 PM

It's a much needed change, after a lot of first round playoff exits and the same formula being implemented year after year, something needs to give. A fresh coach is always a new beginning, new strategies, line combinations, and maybe a bit more logical use with our prospects. It's time to give some of the kids a shot on D all season and working towards our future. 

 

Best wishes to Babcock, and all he did while he was here in Detroit. Toronto is a complete disaster, and I hope he knows what he's getting into there. No sour feelings on my end.




#2605829 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 03 May 2015 - 10:47 PM

Couldn't this go in the "Things you'd like to see thread..."? Trying to follow two threads on the same topic is so confusing.

My thoughts exactly, merged them together. 

 

Let's keep like topics consolidated in the same thread, regardless if the offseason is generally a slower time of year for the forums here. 




#2604436 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 29 April 2015 - 09:12 PM

Been watching since the beginning of the streak, still doesn't sting any less after elimination. 

 

Another season come and gone, let's hope for some changes and a fresh start next year.

 

Let's keep the GDT civil in the coming days here regardless. 




#2602544 why marek zidlicky?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 27 April 2015 - 10:40 PM

He was at the time one of the better right handed defenders available for cheap. He has a heavy shot from the point, he spent some time in a defensively responsible New Jersey organization and it seemed like a good fit.

 

At the time I agreed with the move, and even though he has been weak in the playoffs, I don't really regret it even to this point. Tonight he made noticeable mistakes, and this round hasn't been a good performance from him, but we are 3-3, not out and there's time to bounce back. 

 

Sometimes the vet players work out, sometimes they don't. For what he contributed in the season up to this point in the playoffs, calling for his head is a bit hasty. Let's see how the series finishes out.




#2596534 Trade proposals -looking ahead to next season

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 19 April 2015 - 08:27 AM

I'm gonna go ahead and lock this, I don't see the relevance for trade speculation talk with no substance or sources while playoffs are underway. There's plenty of time in the offseason to bring this up in the many trade rumor/speculation threads that may emerge.

#2592156 Definition of a real fan

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 April 2015 - 10:44 PM

Can we just agree that none of the mods here are "real fans"?

 

I mean, Harold is a Kings fan/slappy and the rest of the mods never post anymore.  Obviously, they couldn't handle the mediocrity of this team.  

We are still here, but we lurk behind closed doors and meddle in new ways to unfairly single out the ones we don't like and torture them as much as possible. It's followed by at least a 3 hour session in front of the mirror flexing our muscles and telling each other how tough we are.

 

Then we laugh. Hard. 

 

On topic, i'm pleasantly stunned by how well you little whipper snappers are handling yourselves in this thread, Carry on.

 

Also Jimmy, thanks for the reminder, your new sig is incoming.

I see you had exactly one post deleted from the Coyotes GDT that was part of a number of off-topic posts that were deleted regarding trolling/not trolling.  And the problem is?

The problem is that we moderated something. In Roboturner's perfect world, nothing on this site would get touched ever, anything that is said goes, and there are no repercussions for breaking the forums rules. 

We are going to moderate, because there are rules on this forum and it's our job to enforce them. If a GDT is going way off track after a loss and you lose a post because of the need for us to edit it, even though we at times have to remove dozens of other posts in the process that no one else seems to come here regularly and complain about, it's something you need to come to terms with. 

 

If this thread is to remain open solely for Roboturner to continue to revert back to in the event that we have to moderate something just to complain about, I don't see a constructive reason to leave it open at all. If you crave and explanation that badly, just let us know and we can submit formal warnings instead of simply removing the content, and in your warning you can have a detailed description of why it was moderated. 

 

So in response to "I see you guys are back to deleting my posts, meanwhile the "in" clique can post whatever the hell they want", my response is stop replying and contributing to off topic discussions that progress the derailing of threads and you won't have to worry about your posts being removed. We have full documentation of everything removed and it passes through Matt also, so instead of acting like the victim like we are pinpointing your individual post and removing it while leaving the rest up in the thread, state more factual information that isn't directed at bashing the moderation staff at every opportunity and state the truth that all the content is gone, including yours, that set that particular GDT off track.

#2580177 Preds don't postpone game, but get fan experience right

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 March 2015 - 02:15 AM

Living in TN, I get to see a lot of Preds games here broadcasted locally, they are a strong squad, control games, and have the tools to go deep in the playoffs.

 

I know it's tough for this being a Wings fan site to have a strong opinion of another team that you may or may not watch too often, but they built their team the right way and I think they can contend and go pretty deep.

 

I also don't hate the trades they did make, I think the inevitable regular season losing skid came at the wrong time with the addition of their two new players, but long term, both will contribute in their own way. Santorelli was relatively strong on a weak Toronto squad, and Franson is a guy we would have liked to see here. 

 

I'll boldly predict conference finals. I also don't feel they are THE best team in the league, but I also don't rule them out of a potential conference final in the playoffs this season. They are better than some people here are giving them credit for. These games the Wings play against teams and seem to be lopsided, putting us on our heels, the Preds have done that against a lot of teams in a lot of games this year, good teams among lesser squads as well. They can dominate and control a game pretty firmly, and it happened without Rinne between the pipes also.

 

With failing teams in the South like Phoenix, I like to see Nashville thriving, competing, and attracting fans. It's good for the sport.

Ha.
Silver lining.
But How do you get around without a license?

#2578936 3/4 GDT : Rangers 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 March 2015 - 03:47 AM

This was definitely a stolen game by Howard. He was flat out phenomenal in multiple points of this game where the skaters were back on their heels and he had nothing but pressure coming his way. 

 

Zidlicky was very noticeable, contributed offensively, seemed comfortable with his passing game, especially to Zett on the PP, and had a firm presence in his first game out there.

 

I think after a bit of line tinkering and some practices, Cole will find a comfort zone and contribute the way management expects him to when they dealt for him. 

 

Overall, fun game to watch, fast paced at times, intense, and had a playoff atmosphere. Glad I was off tonight and got to watch it.
