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.

#2479698 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 01 February 2014 - 06:13 PM

First off Kronwall is unquestionably a top 30 defender, i'm not sure why he wouldn't be considered as such.

 

Also, there have been a lot of new threads being posted lately that are strikingly similar to others with small vague side points trying to set them apart as their own topic. Please be conscious of threads that already exist pertaining to topics including team moves, team future, offseason moves, etc. This is why I merged these two topics together to prevent a bit of clutter and keep the same discussion in the same area of the forums. Thanks.

#2479015 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 30 January 2014 - 05:01 PM

The title was misleading, the first thing I thought when reading it was "Babcock got fired?". I edited it to better reflect the topic of the thread. 

 

Anyway, i'd pull Scotty Bowman out of retirement and make him coach again. Best to ever do it.

Projecting Monster in net even with Howard coming off the IR, we'll know for sure closer to game time. 
 
Time to bounce back and forget about the Florida game, Wings dominate this one 6-1.
 
GO WINGS!!

Babs told the kids there would be a pizza party at Chuck E Cheeses after the game if they lit it up tonight.

I didn't prepare anything for today as it's been a busy weekend, but it's two hours until game time and nothing is up yet. 

 

Keep the winning streak alive, keep the scoring potent. Florida is a team that we absolutely can and should beat, show up and win this one boys.

 

LETS GO WINGS!!

 

Edit: I posted up a concept of what I have been working on, it's an imcomplete GDT graphic but it's a preview of the finished project, added the lines below (Thanks to HockeytownRules19 for posting current lines) so there was some kind of respectable looking GDT for this game.
