@Bill_Roose: #RedWings Nyquist lost a top front tooth last night on play in front of #Canadiens net. Says it put a hole in his mouth guard.

I am just not sure I get the complaining and whining about style of play.

 

 

Would it be great to win 5-1 every night? Yes, but what team is doing that?  Generally if you score more goals you are going to give up more goals.

 

Our style is fine, lets be honest we won the game last night in regulation, so the style of play was not the problem.

 

 

Honestly our strategy of play solid defensive puck possession hockey is just fine

 

Because here is the plan:

 

1. Get a goal or 2 at even strength

2. lock the other team down(we have been doing that)

3. Get opportunities for the power play and take advantage

 

The only problem we have right now is #3. If the power play gets any kind of pulse we will be a very solid team. Last night we had a goal taken away from us, and our power play was abysmal.. fix the power play and these close games aren't as close anymore




#2541829 Toronto Radio: Illitch is selling everything and Babs will be Leafs GM

Posted by VM1138 on 17 October 2014 - 07:18 PM

I'm betting that's what we call 'clickbait.'  The Babcock part seems absolutely absurd and reeks of Toronto delusions.  Maybe Illitch sells the franchises (maybe the arena was the last legacy he wanted to leave) but that seems pretty bizarre, too.  With his family so involved in the resurrection of Detroit just saying 'peace out' when things are finally moving seems a little weird. I call BS on this story.

Trololololol

Lucic is a poopy diaper baby. Fun to see him embarrass himself like this though. :lol:

Find myself hating that guy more and more. He really does nothing for the sake of his own reputation. Two biggest rats in the NHL play for the same team




#2540769 more NHL wisdom: Chris Pronger may work for Dept of Player Safety

The NHL.
Nerf hockey league.
Eveyerone wears a one piece body suit over their pads made of the most dense nerf foam.


Penalty for getting too close to a player, goalies are allowed to be slashed, shoved and hacked away at in order to score though. Refs cannot call penalties against Pittsburgh

IMO the logic is, hire dirty players to catch dirty players. Just like they hire cheats in Vegas to catch cheats in Vegas. It makes sense to me...

 

Pronger and Shanahan understand the physical game better than most and know when a player is just being physical or going too far.

 

If they hired a guy like Crosby everyone would have foam wrapped around them, and players would get a game misconduct for inflicting an ouchy to an opposing player.




#2540827 10/15 GDT : Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by kipwinger on 15 October 2014 - 01:09 PM

Yah, that one was just a CF all the way around. A bit of blame to go around on everyone. The funny thing about that goal is how no one blamed Nesty at all. If you watch the replay, his miss on Getz started it.

 

I mean, other the arguable "no call", I don't think any blame NEEDS to be directed.  Kronwall toe picked, everyone thought a penalty was getting called, and Ryan Getzlaf is one of the best players in the world.  In short, it was a flukey goal.  I'm not too interested in pointing fingers on that one.

I think that post was tongue in cheek. 

Cut me a little slack. I've been away for awhile and I forget your guys crazy humor. :lol:

Nice analysis krsmith17... but we obviously won that game because Boston was playing on back to back nights.

Let's be real.  ;)

I'm glad.  I might have to watch some Devils hockey this year.  That will be odd.  Rooting for a team that can lose and I won't care... hmm.

Glad I got to see him for the man he is in his short time in Detroit/Grand Rapids and not the man I had demonized all those years in Nashville.
