Has the same amount of OT losses as Mrazek. Lol. 


Stop it with your facts. Feelings are where it's at.

A large portion of LGW should be celebrating right now. You got what you wanted - Howard lost.


#2642248 Great Reffing?

Posted by barabbas16 on 11 December 2015 - 12:47 PM

I hate diving. But, acting like your face got mauled when a stick comes close, but makes no contact.... and holding the opponents stick under your arm purposefully to draw a hooking call are just as unsportsmanlike, in my opinion. It's just diving that gets the attention, though.

Great. Everybody sucks right off the bat.

Because we couldn't convert on 6 power plays.

 

Because we can't score in ANY situation (unless they just give us the puck and a wide open path to their goal).

A well played game for the most part.  An undeserved loss, I think.  Boston really had no business being in this game.  Mrazek needs to make the "key" save at the end there that everyone complains Howard doesn't make.  But, moreso, they've got to get the puck into the net more than that.  It was Gustavsson in net and you dominated possession - score more than 2 goals.




#2639300 Jurco on Conditioning Assignment in GRs

Posted by barabbas16 on 25 November 2015 - 04:04 PM

Well Sheahan doesn't provide any scoring. The only thing keeping him in the lineup is that he's a centre. Inserting Jurco for Sheahan would take a lot of line juggling but I think Sheahan is the most deserving of being scratched if we're trying to insert a scoring third liner onto the team

 

So, Sheahan scored more than Jurco in 2013-14.  Sheahan scored more than Jurco in 2014-15.  Sheahan has admittedly dropped off in scoring so far in 2015-16, but still has as many goals in 21 games as Jurco had in 63 games last season.  And, as you mention, outside of scoring Sheahan is the more useful of the two when in the lineup because he can play center.  But, Sheahan should be removed from the lineup and replaced with Jurco.... for more scoring?

Nice effort at the end there. Douchic shows his always present complete lack of class. That guy is such a jackass.

Well, you can't take penalties all game long and expect to win.  Also, 3 on 3 is stupid.  It's not hockey.  It's garbage.  We traded a breakaway competition for a 2 on 1 competition and think it's better.  Stupid.   


It is stupid. I think it is less stupid than the shootout, though.


#2637853 Wings Need on D and Glaring Inconsistencies

Posted by barabbas16 on 18 November 2015 - 06:45 PM

So, Kronwall and Fischer are 2 other homegrown Dmen that contributed to cups. Also, these home grown guys contributed to our cup teams for the playoffs and played throughout the playoff run:
 
Joey Kocur: 97,98
Jamie Pushor: 97 (only played 5 playoff games)
Aaron Ward: 97, (scratched or maybe injured in 98)
Anders Ericksson: 98 (His rookie season also, though 23 games the prev. season)
Brett Lebda: 2008 (2nd full season) 
 
Only Kocur was drafted before Lidstrom. So, you're comment: "But the rest: Ramsey, rouse, Fetisov, Chelios, Schneider, Rafalski, Hatcher, samuelsson, etc... were all brought into the organization" isn't correct.  Also, why is Samuelsson on your list of Dmen?


I'm guessing he meant Ulf Samuelsson.

I know. It's almost like teams have good nights and bad nights, am I right?


Clearly. As does the forum that is dedicated to the team in question. It almost.... makes sense that the ups and downs would go hand in hand. Am I right?

Feel free to stop sucking any time, Red Wings.

Wow I wish Detroit could do that 'put the puck in the net' thing like all of these other teams seem to be able to.


#2636425 2016 NHL Outdoor Games Jerseys.

Posted by barabbas16 on 11 November 2015 - 09:13 AM

The league has watered the outdoor game deal down so much that it is now mundane.  I think it would be funny if Detroit just wore their regular jerseys.
