LOL at anyone blaming the refs for this series loss....

 

Look no further than how this roster is constructed.  It was a minor damn miracle that it even went 7 games.




#2604375 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 29 April 2015 - 09:05 PM

Holland has deserved the blame since the end of the 2009 SCF when it was clear the roster was aging....

 

He needs to go.  Now.

 

Babcock as well.

 

IT's time for a change.

Can't even do anything but dump it in while we are playing in an elimination game. Safe to say momentum has shifted.

 

Safe to say the lack of scoring talent has been exposed as well...

 

Seriously - the book on detroit for the past decade has been get physical with them and push their "skilled" players outside the dots.  Tampa has done that perfectly in this game.  Once Homer retired and Cleary's legs went, there has been no one of note in the middle of the ice.  And without a guy like Hossa who can create his own offense AND score, this team has to rely on skill and system to work and that just won't get it done in the playoffs unless the abundance of skill is overwhelming like it was in 2008 and 2009.

Maybe we can blame them for Detroit not putting the puck in the net.  Better yet, maybe they will do it for us.

 

God forbid people don't blame the refs for SOMETHING in a close playoff game....

 

Christ it's like listening to Ped State fans in college football...

And that's what happens when you don't score....

Thank you Glenny

Could someone please stop shooting the puck directly at the center of the goalies chest protector please?

 

Tampa looks much faster on their skates right now - keep attacking them and keep them playing defense.

Good weather and arguably the best strip club in America.  Why wouldn't he?  

 

Mons Venus is a nice club but it's a damn sausage party with like a 30:1 dude to stripper ratio.  I had more fun in the Spaceship one when I temporarily lived in Tampa in 2003.

#2593364 S'matter Yzerman, afraid of the jersey you wore for so long?

I never said the GM set ticket policy, what I said it that the GM has power, and unless its coming from the owner or president, if the GM is firmly against something, I'm sure he has pull to veto it.

 

Also, if you are going to say I am "100% incorrect", please post a link or something to backup your statements, otherwise you are just sharing your opinion.

 

You are only saying that because it's Steve Yzerman.  No other NHL team has a GM meddle in business affairs outside of the NHL roster.

 

And yes I'm working on finding a link for exactly who controls ticket policy.  I guarantee you Tampa is set up like every other NHL team and has an Executive VP for that purpose....

 

EDIT: I could only find stories that had quotes coming from the team's communications director, so I called their ticket office directly at 813.301.6600.  Per someone named Tony, this policy was envisioned by the owner and put into practice by the COO.  Yzerman has ZERO to do with it.  Feel free to call yourself if you want.

Are people REALLY talking s*** about an all-time Wings great over the availability of playoff tickets?

 

Get a f***in grip people.




#2592840 43-25-14......3rd seed in Division. Success or Failure?

Posted by BuckeyeWingsfan80 on 13 April 2015 - 10:01 AM

Given last year's disappointing exit from the playoffs, I'd say success with a caveat - they could have finished much stronger had they kept playing like they did November thru January...

 

They even improved their standing.  Improvement is always a good thing.

Deflection off Quincey's stick.  I can't fault Howard for that one.

 

Don't worry the rest of LGW will for you....unfortunately...
