#2495625 3/16 around the NHL

Posted by Echolalia on 16 March 2014 - 04:51 PM

Hmm, Caps just beat the leafs, things just got more interesting! 

 

3 games in hand now on TO, Leafs 80 pts, Wings 73, with 2 games left between the teams. 

 

I would say that's doable. 

 

That's a potential 10 points we can gain that the Leafs wouldn't have access to (assuming we win the head-to-heads).

#2495402 3/14 GDT : Edmonton Oilers 1 at Red Wings 2 (F/SO)

Missed the game tonight. Can anyone tell me how Pulkkinen looked?


The kid definitely thinks shoot first. He had probably five shot attempts, but maybe three made on net. Two of them were absolute howitzers during a powerplay. His highlight of the night however was an open ice hip heck against David Perron, I believe. Considering his limited ice time, he made his presence felt.

So how many points must we take tonight? I've been looking all over and can't find an answer.

No he doesn't. Even though E-is primary partner has a positive rating.......


Sooooooo you're saying E is our number 1 defensman?

Why do the Blue Jackets have banners of every team logo hanging up?


What else do they have to hang up?

What Holland did is like standing at a fork, deciding which road to follow...and then he continues his journey, only to stop after a mile or two at the next gas station to get some donuts..


You gotta problem with donuts?


#2494091 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by Echolalia on 10 March 2014 - 03:55 PM

Smith is an offensive defensman; I think we can all see that in his game. I agree with Kip though, that Babs cares about defense before offense, so Smith needs to learn to take care of things on the defensive side of the puck, and adapt his offensive game without sacrificing scoring opportunities against us. He's getting better every week at this. Last year most of LGW wanted him off the team, earlier this year more folks started believing that he could be solid for us, and now we have a thread dedicated to "the real Brendan Smith" finally showing up. I still believe he has a ways to go, and ultimately see him being the Brian Rafalski that we've been missing in a couple years. Time will tell if he reaches that potential or not, but he's trending in the right direction.

I just started and already my hockey viewing experience has improved by 124%

Mine only improved by 79%. Also I rounded up.

Big save by Jimmy. LGW silent. Goal allowed by Jimmy. LGW up in arms about how jimmy never makes big saves.

Probably in the minority but I think Chara is the most overrated player in the league.  He's big and physical, but I've never been impressed with his defensive ability.




#2493165 3/7 GDT: Devils 4 at Red Wings 7

Mickey often talks about how players feel the need to play harder in front of their backup and feel like starter will bail them out.

 

I agree with this.  I don't agree with Jimmy not making any big saves while Gustavsson stands on his head to deliver victories.
