#2518580 WCQF - Series H - San Jose versus Los Angeles

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 01 May 2014 - 02:23 AM

Well if this proved anything, it's that things could always be worse. We could all be Sharks fans.

 

You think WE are frustrated and annoyed with our team? Imagine dealing with this over the last how many years with no championships.

 

Incredible feat for the Kings, I think a few of us had it in the back of our heads that if a team was going to come back from a 3-0 hole this year it likely would be against the Sharks. I don't know how I would handle the choke as a fan on their side of the ice after their playoff history in recent memory.

Updated.. crunch time boys. Win or go home, that's all there is to it. Bring it home for game 6, our season DOES NOT end today.

 

Wings take it 4-2

 

GO RED WINGS!!!

#2515830 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 25 April 2014 - 02:58 PM

 

I'm a little confused by his "ridiculous surge in the latter part of the season".

Franzen had 1 goal and 7 points in the last 18 games of the regular season  :eh:

Are you confusing Franzen with Nyquist?

 

Granted, Franzen had 12 points in the 6 games prior to that slump. Which of course makes his stat-line look better when looking at the last 24 regular season games - 19 points in 24 games. However, that deceiving state-line doesn't change the fact that he wasn't producing for the last 18 games of the regular season.

 

So I would agree that the wings wouldn't have made the playoffs if it weren't for Franzen's "ridiculous surge for six games with about a quarter of the season left to play". But, I would also agree that if Franzen actually would've showed up for the last 18 games of the season we would have easily made the playoffs and probably would be playing the Pens rather than the Bruins.

 

He absolutely does not deserve praise for helping us make the playoffs. There's a reason the credit is going to all of the "kids" on the team.

I think what he is referring to is the 7-8 game hot streak he went on immediately after the Olympics. In that respect I do agree, had he not played that well for those games we likely lose 2-3 of them instead of winning and possibly miss the playoffs altogether. 

 

What the key here is, and it's how most around here feel about him, putting in that effort for only 20% of the season isn't going to cut it and the money can be spent better elsewhere. On a fan forum for a sports team, there will always be those players that people are going to target and they will be on again and off again about depending on performance. If everyone held the same opinion of everything always, this forum would be pretty boring. Attempting to gain justification of someone's opinion on a discussion board to me is a lost cause.

4 goals in 4 games might get the job done if we are all rooting for a soccer team. That's about where i'll leave it.

Thisf****** sucks. Good effort tonight and still nothing to show for it. I wish someone would paralyze Lucic and Marchand.

Classy comment, i'm sure Vladdy would appreciate that one if he read it.

This is pretty much playing out like a team that made the playoffs by 2 games against the presidents trophy winners. 

 

Monster in relief was impressive, there was zero control over the OT goal, you can't stop a double deflection like that. We had our chances, and didn't capitalize. 3 straight or done.

For as big as Monster is, he comes way too far out of his crease to cut down the angle. He needs to rely more on his size and ability over being 2-3 feet out of the crease leaving that side so wide open. It's scary.

Excellent D play by Smith, may have saved a goal there. Remember that play.

Lucic was very slow to get back to the bench, Franzen lit him up I love it.

#2514522 Do you want Jonas Gustavsson re-signed?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 24 April 2014 - 02:59 AM

I'm fine with Monster for one more season, He came up big for us when Howard was injured and got valuable wins. 

 

Mrazek hasn't proven anything to me yet, he needs more time under his belt. He had two wins in six starts this season and nothing about that screams to me "trusted backup". If Howard went down for an extended period of time, as it sits right now, I have more confidence in Monster carrying the load for a few weeks over Mrazek.
