#2471926 Cleary should be suspended for elbow to head

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 January 2014 - 04:18 PM

Yes, before this spins out of control as another Cleary bash fest let's focus on the topic here and redirect any aggressiveness towards him back to the Cleary Hate Thread. This is about the possibility of suspension from the elbow in question, it doesn't need to be derailed further than that. 

 

I believe it is absolutely suspendable, and there is no reason why he shouldn't get at least two games for it. Even as a Wings fan that generally defends the actions of the team, logically there really is no way to write this one off. 

 

I for one would be surprised if he skated away from this without penalty. 




#2471831 What is going on in Edmonton?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 January 2014 - 02:08 AM

A player like Jagr or Alfredsson would have suited them this past offseason. There is also an obvious lack of goaltending in their system that has gone unfixed for too long, and they have had their opportunities. Maybe it's the coaching, maybe it's the management, but Kylee above pretty much summed it up. Edmonton is a mess.

This season has been Murphys Law so far, Anything that can go wrong will go wrong. Questionable contract signings and re-signings, a stunning amount of injuries, and a pretty bad start in the East for Detroit. 

 

The optimist can also say it could be much worse. Considering all the woes this season, our record could be tremendously worse and there could be a much deeper hole to scrape out of. 

 

This team is capable of contending when healthy, but with consistent injuries to key players that continue to occur it's an ongoing struggle. Who knows what the remainder of this season will bring but stick it out because that's what Wings fan do. All we can do as fans is continue watching, supporting, and cheering on our boys in red and white. It's been a rough road but we'll survive, there have been worse spots than this in the past. 




#2471588 Brian Rafalski signs with ECHL team

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 January 2014 - 10:21 PM

If he hadn't retired and still played here everyone would be complaining that he's 40 years old and hasn't retired yet. 

 

I hope for the best for Raf, he did depart too early but even a consideration of having him return now, no thanks.




#2471382 THN came up with the All-Snubs Olympic rosters

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 08 January 2014 - 04:33 PM

I legitimately feel like one of the worst snubs aside from Giroux was Hudler. Him being a legend aside, he's tearing it up in Calgary with 35 points this year, and he's happy huddles! Who wouldn't want that face representing their country? 

 

And I mean seriously, Petr Nedved makes it?




#2471381 Certain NHL attendance metrics are better than NBA

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 08 January 2014 - 04:25 PM

This is actually good news, the NHL is seeing growing support regardless of the lockout problems. Maybe if more players were outspoken and threw their fingers in the cameras screaming they were number one it would gain more popularity and be on par with the NBA but I prefer having humble players with a reasonable amount of sportsmanship over a bunch of cocky showboats like the NBA is filled with. It's a team sport and the NHL seems to understand that for the most part, there are a lot more individuals that like to make it known that it's "all them" and enjoy talking about themselves over the team effort to gain more of the spotlight.

FlashyG... The other "Magic Man". 

 

I always enjoy your GDTs, along with the level of humor and creative work that goes into them. This is another gem, nice work!

 

Kick off the New Year right boys with a big win against Dallas. Wings take it 4-1, for the sake of irony, goals from Cleary, Quincey, Bertuzzi, and Andersson. 

 

LETS GO WINGS!!




#2470217 Datsyuk vs. Zetterberg

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 January 2014 - 12:30 PM

We generally seem to hold up a lot better with Z in the lineup and Pav out opposed to the opposite way around. When you are speaking in the sense of which one is overall more important to the team, and when separated who tends to show up more in big moments and helps this team win more games i'd have to go with Captain Zetterberg. He is Captain for a reason, because he brings so much more to the table than a strong skill set and likely more than we'll ever see or know about.

 

While I feel that Datsyuk has a better skill set and is a more complete player, If it came down to keeping one or the other, I see this squad playing more successful hockey with Z over D. 




#2469916 1/1 Winter Classic 2014 GDT: Maple Leafs 3, Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 01 January 2014 - 04:25 PM

It's the Winter Classic, who knows when we get another one. Does this really need to turn into ANOTHER Cleary bash fest? I mean seriously, can't we just watch and enjoy the game without irrationally nitpicking about a guy who has done nothing to earn grief this entire game? 

 

It would be awesome because it's getting old.

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 01 January 2014 - 04:03 PM

that is all for today. This team has no heart,

What are you watching? This team has more heart and energy going in this game than i've seen most of this season.

Agreed.  I honestly don't know if it was or wasn't.

 

Which is why it's hilarious that Olczyk is using some angle from high along the side boards to determine that it was a good goal. 

He's using one of those 82 cameras on hand, the one that has calvin peeing on the Wings logo reserved for just him.

I'd like to hear them chirping at each other and hear what sets them off enough to fight.

leafs win 4-1.

 

i'm already looking forward to next years winter classic when a TRUE NHL franchise plays in the winter classic. The Pittsburgh Penguins. 

Hope the Crosby wagon doesn't hit a pot hole and you fall off before then!

 

Because, ya know, TRUE franchises were formed in the late 60's not those original teams in the 20's or anything.

Lines in anticipation of Alfredsson not playing, will update with changes in the morning as they become available. This is a special event that I have been looking forward to since it had been announced a couple years ago, enjoy the game and most importantly...


LETS GO WINGS!!
