#2481762 Franzen for edler?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 February 2014 - 04:35 PM

With Franzen's injury I'm just surprised someone would want him and that contract

I agree, it's not an ideal time to trade a player when they have been out with injury for an extended period of time, especially a concussion. 

 

One of those articles did say there was an offer with "three pieces" but Vancouver wanted a 4th which inevitably ended the talks at that time. I don't think a 1 for 1 scenario would be the kind of deal on the table here.

Lines are in anticipation of Pav returning, it will be known after morning skate if he will indeed play in this game. If he does, I gotta say I personally love the look of those top 3 lines, and our boys are finally returning to full strength. 

 

LETS BEAT FLORIDA THIS TIME!

 

They have had our number this season for whatever reason, there is no way we drop another one to them. 

 

Wings take it 5-3. GO WINGS!!

I pretty much only play Club/OTP outside of the GM Connected league I run. My EASHL skater is RD, 94 goals 343 assists +117 in 507 games. Legend 3 card, I only play defense.




#2481364 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 February 2014 - 01:32 AM

"2/3's Demoted When Healthy" line?

I was thinking along the lines of "Broken when Datsyuk returns line" but same idea.

I did start it by mentioning Beavis in a Wings shirt to set you up for the epic PP goal for my bunghole quote, which Mabus promptly put into the awesome pic. I'll blame the Macallan for this one since I forced myself to not post during the game. ;). Mabus does have the awesome photoshop skills. I'm sure Nyquist onto the Goose is my Wingman graphic is out there somewhere as well.

 

 

I feel like this is spiraling out of control :lol:

 

I'll take on the homework, something new to unleash during the next GDT if all goes well.

Can someone photoshop Jimmy and Gus together like those dorky werewolf twins from teen wolf?  We'll give that one the shutout.

Or one of those creepy "If this celebrity bred with this celebrity, this is what the baby would look like" photos from the late night talk shows.. I can build a creepy Jimmy Monster hybrid.. I have the technology.

Do you have PP? PP for my bunghole??

I wonder who the last player was to score hat tricks in consecutive games

I was gonna guess Gretzky, he's usually the safe guess when it comes to NHL feats.


Have we gotten a PP goal since I changed my av?! s***!

I'm gonna need an answer to this question, i'd hate to think my Beavis masterpiece jinxed us.

I want a celebratory hat trick out of Nyquist for making the olympics.




#2480507 The NHL reffing affecting the game

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 03 February 2014 - 05:27 AM

I'm a bit on the fence so stick with me here for a moment.

 

I'm not defending the Refs, nor am I saying bad calls never happen. It is true it happens in all sports, It's bad in Baseball, it's bad in the NFL and they do have video replay which they review during challenges and still at times get it wrong. 

 

I don't know how often I am watching a game and I say to myself after a penalty is called "I need to see the replay, I didn't catch what happened." That's because one pair of human eyes can't watch what all 10 skaters are doing at one time on the ice. I understand it is their job, I get this is what they are paid to do, but until there are 6+ refs on the ice to catch everything, a ton of delays from conferences and discussions, or excessive video replays, i'll take the human error over what it could come down to which is a painstaking process to determine the validity of a minor penalty. 

 

They need to make snap decisions based on what they see at that time. The trip in overtime wasn't a great call, but it wasn't an awful call either. In the moment, the angle the ref is standing, and what the infraction appeared to be, you cannot fault the ref. There is such a fine line of determining right in that minute if the blade of the stick caught the skate or the skate caught the stick. Either way I doubt anyone here watching the game was 100% confident during live action as it happened before the replay was shown with absolute certainty it was or was not a penalty.  

 

This is the reality of sports, and being a sports fan. I don't want video review after every infraction. I don't want computers or technology determining what is and is not a penalty. I don't want to sit in front of the television for 10-15 minutes, have them cut to commercial break just to return to determine if a penalty is a penalty or not. That is a ridiculous concept coming from a hockey fan and a sports fan in general, it would slow the pace of the game, and just cause further drama and annoyance.

 

It was one call in overtime in 1 of 82 regular season games. The refs aren't out to get the Red Wings, it's our viewpoint as fans to defend every action of our players at all times, more times than not because of our bias we won't agree with calls. 

 

So what can be done about the refs? As far as i'm concerned the system as it sits is fine. You take the good with the bad, sometimes it goes our way, sometimes it doesn't. This is how sports have always been and will continue to be.
