#2596112 ECQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Tampa Bay Lightning 5

It's pretty disappointing that Abby and Cole are out. Our top 6 would look so much different if we had those guys. f*** this game is over if I'm already talking about what ifs.

ifh Abby were playing, he would have so many I penaltuies, based on what the refs are doing.

Friendly advice:

If you didn't include your first paragraph and the last line of your response, nobody would be giving your a hard time right now.  But bringing up your fan history and thumping your chest for being a die hard Wings' fan (on a Wings' forum where 90% of us can easily claim the same credentials or more), then following it up with the snarky comment about "thanks for playing" to close your post came off badly.  Very badly.  Most of us try to be friendly to one another here, even if we disagree with something, but when comments like that are made, people are going to gang up on you.

Likewise, if you stated an opinion in some other thread and jimmyemeryhunter (or whoever) posted something belittling and arrogant in response, myself and probably several others would come to your aid and attack the perpetrator.

Its just how we roll.

 

I appreciate your response. Thanks for being decent...and I only said "thanks for playing" because i was clearly being called out and disrespected before hand. I felt like the person i quoted was being unneccessarily instigating.

Garbage call+ Garbage goaltending. Howard has to corral that shot off the boards, christ.

Howard never should've let them make that call.
:ninja:

There's some more interference...

Oh - there's some more....

There's.... why aren't they calling any of these penalties ?

I really don't think Detroit should complain about interference.
We've been so subtle for so long.
Hahahahaha.
You won't kiss him!

Great period (the kind where hockey guys skate around and try score goals, defend their goal, and not go to the box and feel shame)

#2573675 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by kipwinger on 23 February 2015 - 01:57 AM

 I believe the NFL has a much larger issue at hand with brain trauma/debilitating injuries/prescription med abuse/domestic abuse than the NHL.

 

The HBO special on the Chicago Bears 1985 Super Bowl team is the tip of the iceberg.

 

I don't feel qualified to say whether one sport is worse than the other with regards to causing brain injuries.  They both demonstrably have a serious issue with it.   I do, however, feel that ANY sports league should absolutely prioritize the health and safety of their players.  One easy way to do that, in hockey, is to take unnecessary (and avoidable) hits to the head out of the game.  And one very easy way to do that is to remove fighting by removing the "so called" need for it...increase penalties for serious infractions to the point where players err on the side of caution. 

 

Caution.  The operable word.  Heaven forbid human beings in the 21st Century learn how to enjoy sports where players must be cautious of one another. 




#2568337 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by krsmith17 on 04 February 2015 - 04:58 PM

Raise your hand if you've watched a lot of Leafs / Predators games since Franson has entered the league, and followed his individual play very closely... :bye1:

 

People that don't think Franson will be worth it or won't fit in here, clearly are unaware of the type of game this guy plays... I've said it before and I'll say it again, Cody Franson is exactly the type of defenseman this team needs. Him alone would make us an instant threat come playoff time. He is worth the "asking price" as a rental, and he would be worth re-signing after this season. So what, if we have to give up one of our defense prospects to fit him in here long term, he'd be worth it...

#2565533 Time for Teemu?

Posted by kipwinger on 22 January 2015 - 11:04 AM

To me, the biggest thing he's going to have to do is get WAY stronger.  He's a little guy.  You don't realize it until you see him in person.  By comparison, Nyquist and Tatar look like big dudes.  Which, I assume, is because of their respective fitness levels.  I don't even really care if he gains weight (which he probably will), as long as he just gets WAY stronger.  He's got a really low center of gravity, so if he does put on some muscle and/or add some power, he'll win a lot of the battles he loses.  

 

Other than his shot, there are a few things I really like about his game.  He's got good first step quickness.  He can jump on loose pucks and find open spots on the ice as a result.  He's also pretty defensively responsible.  I noticed him backtracking and checking his coverage a lot.  Finally, I really like his aggressiveness.  He doesn't play pensive, at all.  He jumps into scrums, battles on the boards, and will put his body on the line to make a play.  He battles, he's just too weak to win the battles right now.  But he's definitely not afraid.

 

He's got an alpha mentality, but right now beta strength.  If he can be an explosive 195-200 lbs. (which I don't think is unrealistic given his frame), I think he'll be a really exciting player because he doesn't lack much else.

Lol it reminds me of when the computer plays me.

Haha. That's what I meant. Sniping it 5 hole from the point on every single shot. The computer scores on every shot they take. Such a s*** game.




#2562734 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 12 January 2015 - 07:25 PM

 
I agree, in part.  My point is that while a solid puck mover is a necessary condition for being a contender, I don't think (given the way we've been playing) it's a sufficient one.  As such, I don't see Holland going out and getting one just to get one. 
 
If, however, we can string together some wins and play well against good teams (i.e. we're better than I think we are) then maybe Holland decides a puck mover is sufficient for Cup contention, and he pulls the trigger. 
 
Right now I think he's trying to figure out which is the case.  If the team wants a puck mover before the off-season, they better prove that they can run with the big boys. 


Wait... What? the wings are in the playoff picture. If our team isn't good enough then we need to improve via trade, but we can't do that unless our team magically is better?

You are now entering, the scary door


#2562454 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by derblaueClaus on 11 January 2015 - 09:01 AM

Ya his bad pass pulled groin sv% is s***.

Congrats average Jim!

 

And his GA ( = groin against) is just pathetic compared to other goalies.




#2562477 Jimmy Howard.......All-Star!

Posted by WingsallTheway on 11 January 2015 - 12:37 PM

I'm pretty sure gustavsson's groin against average is worse. I could be wrong though

 

Gus' groin against average is as untouchable as Gretzky's records
