#2475048 Leaders need to be leaders

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 21 January 2014 - 03:19 AM

Zett has 3 points in his last two games, and in an offensively slumping season he is still scoring slightly above a point per game. He is human, mistakes are going to happen, Z isn't the problem here. 

 

We can pick apart however many reasons we can to find an alternate reason as to why this team is in the shape it is in, but it continues to go back to the main reason. Injuries and commitment to aging roster players that no longer serve a valuable function.

 

Blaming individual players at this point isn't fair because we are playing at half strength. It's a constant game of shuffle and adapt as players continue to come and go. It's been the story of this season and last. Some guys need to retire, some kids need to play more, and most guys need to stay healthy for more regular periods of time before things begin to improve. It is going to be a lot of up and down until then.

Backes is a monster, and I agree that he is among the league elite power forwards, if not the best. I'd flip from excitement if he ever landed here but I see him as being a career Blue. 

 

42 GP 17G 18A +13 76 PIM 146 Hits

 

He does it all, offensive thread, physical presence, and will drop the gloves with anyone.

#2474443 Blessing in disguise?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 19 January 2014 - 11:23 PM

I enjoyed this post, and there are a few important facts. Biggest one for me is getting a look at the younglings that we otherwise wouldn't have for potentially years had we not been suffering these injuries all year. Sheahan absolutely would not have played a single game this year, but now that he has, he's already beginning to look like a roster player that we otherwise wouldn't have a clue of how ready he is to play. Tatar in a bigger role is producing and it makes me feel a bit more comfortable in the future if we do have more injuries that some can step up and deliver. 

 

It's a situation of making the best out of the worst, every win is important, and what our kids are doing is vital to their future. Things could be so much worse right now, I keep trying to remind myself of that.

#2474277 Nucks vs Flames

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 19 January 2014 - 12:27 AM

While Hartley didn't do anything against the rules, he did not do any favors for the image of hockey. Please tell me, why were they fighting right at the starting faceoff? Nothing has happened in the game yet, to react to. Therefore this was deliberate move on Flames part to start the game with a line brawl. This wasn't an MMA meet or a WWF show. This was supposed to be a hockey game. I have nothing against fighting when it is a reaction to something that the opponents did wrong. Or even when it is done to change the momentum of the game. But staged fights like this one disgust me. 

To me, and I could be wrong, it appeared that the opening faceoff kept getting delayed, something was off and both centers were chirping at each other about it. This is how I saw it, maybe something that was said between the two in the faceoff circle sparked it and it wasn't premeditated at all. Once they got into it then the others decided to jump in. 

 

This is also a Canada vs Canada team matchup, there always seems to be bad blood when two Canadian teams play. Calling it "staged" though I don't feel like is the situation, this isn't pro wrestling and staged is the same as saying scripted like the coaching staff met with each other before the game and said "Hey let's have a big fight right at puck drop".

 

More info will come along by tomorrow about the incident i'm sure.

Ginger twins probably started pulling hair and slapping. :D

 

Craziness, good to see some old time brawling hockey hit the ice every now and again.

Seriously, 176 PIM in the first 12 minutes of that Nucks/Flames game?? I know it's off topic but it's still a pretty significant event in tonights hockey games. It has to be some kind of record for fastest PIM total in a game.




#2474225 Nucks vs Flames

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 18 January 2014 - 10:41 PM

Not to get off topic but 5 simultaneous fights break out Nucks/Flames game in the first period. lol

Hudler is crushing faces and scoring points!

Can't we just shoot at foam targets instead, quickest to break 4 wins?
