#2272351 So who could the Red Wings get in the offseason?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 20 March 2012 - 11:18 PM

Semin is one of the last players I would want on this team, his work ethic sucks and he's not a player that we need or want. We need more answers not more problems.

Parise i'd love to see, but i'm not sure how realistic it is that he leaves the Devils, especially during this upcoming offseason. I've heard a ton of rumors about it but nothing concrete to give it credibility that Parise to the Wings is a real possibility.

Primarily, I think it will rely heavily on Lidstrom's decision on retirement. If he does, our chances of a huge addition like this are more likely.

#2271595 Crosby

Crosby? Man that's a name I haven't heard in a few good minutes :sly:

There should be a poll "What player gets talked about annoyingly too much in the NHL".

Yeah he's a great player, I get it. Not trying to be rude but it's like the Crosby plague lately, can't get away from hearing about this guy if you want to or not.

#2270835 Datsyuk says he is playing tomorrow

Good, now it's time to snap this road skid and win against the Sharks. Pav returning is going to give a much needed jolt back into this team.

Welcome back with open arms Pav!

About time.. give the guy top 6 minutes and I think we will be fine until Pav gets back.

#2268352 Alex Radulov returning nhl playoffs?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 March 2012 - 12:19 AM

...Who cares?

Radulov is as threatening as a pug puppy. I have no concern.

I have no problem with the Sharks missing the playoffs.

#2267063 What to do?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 March 2012 - 03:24 AM

I can offer a few more ideas that have helped me and friends of mine in similar situations.

In focusing more on the aspect of rediscovering joy in life, you really do need to change things up. A long time friend of mine went through depression and drugs at a point in his life and seemed to fall into a hole. Talking on xbox live one night, we decided to start up a fantasy hockey league because neither of us had tried it before. It started off casual and became competitive pretty fast. We both got really involved with it, Hockey led to Baseball, then Football and Basketball. We started watching more hockey games outside of our teams (He's a Devils fan, blah) and suddenly it became a bit of a lifestyle. He quit drinking and everything else because of this new found passion, it became a safe addiction that has turned his life around. I'm not saying go out and become a fantasy sports addict, but finding something that is very involved and social has worked wonders in my experience.

Another suggestion, if you don't have one already, is consider adopting a dog. Not a cat, cats are depressing and that's counterproductive. Pets can bring much joy and change into someone's life, i'm a pet owner and consider them part of the family. Adopting can save the life of an animal and give you a friend for life, and it's something to consider also.

Life is so full of obstacles, and it got to a point in my life where I was anticipating the next bad thing to happen and it was relentless. It still is, but you need to realize at one point that something is going to give, and good things will happen eventually. As hard and difficult as times may seem you always need to maintain a good perspective on life and continue to do what you feel is right. Keep your head up, and I hope something I posted here helps.

#2266251 The Blues are in the driver's seat

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 04 March 2012 - 03:17 AM

I think we are very fortunate to have one of the best goalie duos in the NHL right now, unfortunately so does St. Louis. Halak has been flat out dominant in the last few weeks, and it's intimidating. I wouldn't go as far to say we are pretty much out of it if we don't win the division because we continue to be among the elite teams in hockey and can stand up against anyone.

I don't really understand why at this point, sitting at the top of the standings for weeks, Howard being a potential Vezina candidate and breaking an NHL record for consecutive home wins, there would be any doubt that we can get through any opponent in the playoffs and win the cup this year. What else do they need to prove?

Let's see a repeat of our effort against Minnesota, 6-0 Wings.

:clap: Go Red Wings! :clap:

#2265740 3/2 GDT : Wild 0 at Red Wings 6

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 March 2012 - 04:11 PM

Backstrom out for this game, looks like Harding gets the nod.

Prediction: Harding slips on octopus during pre-game skate and sprains ankle, Hackett gets the start.

Hackett does the splits against a Zetterberg breakaway and pulls a groin muscle. Out of options the Wild suit up Clutterbuck who goes on the break the single game hit record for a goalie but forgets to stay in his crease.

Red Wings win 22-0 :thumbup:

#2265573 CHL, Other Junior Leagues Look to Ban Fighting

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 March 2012 - 12:31 AM

This is a constant annoyance at this point, and I hate the direction that leagues are going with this.

Hockey is all for the fans, right? Tell me the last time you saw a fight break out during a hockey game and the fans didn't explode in cheers like a goal was just scored. It's exciting, fans love it, I love it, it's always been part of the game and needs to stay part of the game.

If the NHL does this, and I can see it happening at some point, Mr. Howe will shake his head in disgust as will most of the other retired players and long time fans of the sport.

#2264407 trade idea for the summer

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 28 February 2012 - 04:05 AM

What's with the lack of faith? I'd expect Flyers fans to give up on their team but I wouldn't expect to see it here. The playoffs are an entirely different monster, and already saying this year is over and you expect us to be out in the 2nd or 3rd round is pretty miserable for someone who claims to be a fan of this team. Datsyuk is a big part of this team, but he isn't the entire team, and missing three weeks isn't grounds to give up hope on the entire team's success for the rest of the season, come on now.
