#2467666 Inside a Hockey Ref's Game

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 25 December 2013 - 03:53 AM

I can see this being a big part of sports future. I mean they can put impressively functioning cameras with video in cell phones that weigh next to nothing and would fit snug into a helmet without adding additional weight or interfering with that players mobility. I think what holds it back is television and censorship, you can't ask players to watch their mouths but you can't have F bombs being dropped on live television on public channels either. In my mind, this is likely why we haven't seen more stuff like this during games, as great as it would be and even make the shootout a bit more interesting with player and goalie-eye views of it going down. 

 

I'd be happy with them bringing back the glow puck but i'm easy to please. It was kinda like watching Tron hockey.

I really don't remember a season when injuries were THIS bad. I mean there have been a few rough stretches in recent memory but not to this capacity. This is yet another respectable quality player not on the squad for an extended period of time, and long term it's really going to damage this teams chances of making playoffs this year unless something improves fast. 




#2467522 12/23 GDT : Islanders 3 at Red Wings 0

Toronto Maple Leafs
Dallas Stars
San Jose Sharks
Los Angeles Kings
Anaheim Ducks
NY Rangers
Los Angeles Kings
St. Louis Blues
Chicago Blackhawks
Montreal Canadiens
Florida Panthers
Philadelphia Flyers
Washington Capitals
 
January - The most important part of the season

 

The way we have been playing this season I expect Florida, New York and Philly to be auto-losses because they are the least threatening. Likely will win 3 of 4 against Los Angeles, St. Louis and Chicago and the rest will be a crap shoot.

Look on the bright side, we are only on a 1 game losing streak right now.. :lol:

 

We need to get healthy, bottom line. This is getting painful to watch, pun sort of intended.

Holy crap...Did I see Bert with a clean shaven mug?

He's gotta look good for those Corona chugging and bubble gum chewing shots for 24/7.

Finally a shootout win. A big thanks to Alf and Dats who were both big reasons why we won these last two games.

At least we scored 3 goals so far!




#2466613 Darryl Sutter's take on the Penalty Box.

I always thought it would be fun to be within Tie Domi's splash zone.

#2466446 12/19 GDT: Flames 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 19 December 2013 - 10:33 PM

Keep Tootoo in the lineup, he brought energy, he was noticeable, and helped this squad win tonight. Even against Calgary, it's a win and it's two points, and that's more than we could have said these past few games. 

 

Stay confident younglings, the force is with you. Let's keep winning games, it's a lot more fun this way.




#2466168 Babcock's Job?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 19 December 2013 - 01:24 PM

They made it to the 2nd round of the playoffs and brought the cup champs to an intense game 7. They are hammered with important player injuries and are on a small losing skid because of it. Coaching only can do so much, considering the circumstances it would be pretty unfair to Babcock at this moment to even consider this his fault and jeopardize his job due to reasons beyond his control. 

 

Plus, I sound like a broken record here as I keep saying this, this team is still sitting 6th in the East and that's pretty damn impressive all things considered to be in a playoff position. Granted the Wings lead the league in OT loss points, but in this modern NHL points are points and that's what determines the overall standings. 

 

There is one resolution here, it's not the coach, it's not the GM, it's the injuries. Get healthy, and they begin to play better.

Once more updated lines become available i'll update, lines as they are currently posted are purely speculation.

#2466022 Blues Re-sign Steen 3 Years 17.4m

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 18 December 2013 - 05:19 PM

Way too much money for Steen imo. He's a solid player but he's playing out of his mind right now, and I find it hard to believe he can even come close to a repeat season like the one he is having. He's worthy of $3.5 - $4.0 max but close to 6 mil per is nuts. 

 

Clarkson is a perfect example, had an out of character season last year, got overpaid, and he's back to being his mediocre self with 6 points in 24 games and coming off his 2nd suspension this season already.




#2465995 Tootoo called up

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 18 December 2013 - 04:02 PM

It's a Christmas miracle!! There is zero reason why he hasn't played a game yet this season, but better late than never.
