#2251823 Howard has broken finger, Joey Mac recalled

Posted by Echolalia on 03 February 2012 - 11:38 AM

The bright side: he finished the game last night despite breaking it mid-game.
The wings are in 1st place overall, which is the most ideal position to be in when a goalie gets injured, instead of say 5th place or 9th place etc.

The team knows that it's Conklin behind them now. No more Howie to the rescue, no Howie to win shootouts for us. If that's not incentive to give it your very best then I don't know to tell you.


#2251001 1/31 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Flames 1

Zetterberg is so painful to watch this year. He's supposed to be one of the best players on our team, and I don't even know if he's the best player on his line right now...


#2249367 Cooke Boards or Jackman Dives?

Posted by Echolalia on 25 January 2012 - 04:47 PM

Jackman definitely embellishes, but lets be frank: players have been diving as long as anyone can remember, and while the refs don't have the benefit of a replay, Shanahan does. It will be much more difficult to embellish a hit to get somebody suspended.


#2241853 Red Wings - Maple Leafs 24/7...

Posted by Echolalia on 05 January 2012 - 08:24 PM

If the Wings are on 24/7 next year, Holmstrom absolutely has to be around. I've been hearing for almost two decades about how ridiculous and silly he is.

I would have paid a lot of money to have seen a 24/7 during the Detroit, Colorado brawl! Could you imagine the interviews with McCarty and lemieux, their lives away from the ice? Priceless.


There was actually a similar show that followed the WIngs towards the end of the rivalry. Its on youtube I think.

here's the start:

Posted by Echolalia on 27 December 2011 - 02:48 PM

Now we need someone to compare these numbers to the win rate when there are no fights.


#2238623 Will Jimmy Howard Be Overworked For Playoffs?

Posted by Echolalia on 23 December 2011 - 02:42 AM

Let's play a guessing game... I'm going to throw out a number, and you tell me what it stands for

6

I'll give you a hint, it has to do with Howard and it's not an on ice stat...


Howard's favorite integer between 5 and 7?

Doesn't ring a bell


#2233962 Kronwall and Stuart may be hitting a lot less now

Posted by Echolalia on 07 December 2011 - 04:47 PM

I thought this thread wasn't about Fistric, but rather Kronwall and Stuart. If you want to discuss the Fistric hit, haroldsnepsts was kind enough to point you to two other threads discussing the topic, including one you even made.

I heard Mark Fistric died, and this is the thread to check in on updates.

My condolences to his family and friends.


#2230737 Acquiring a top six forward

Posted by Echolalia on 28 November 2011 - 11:11 PM

I don't see the Wings landing Iginla, because Holland is the type of GM to look at the future just as much as the present. He won't pay a whole lot for Iggy knowing he's well into the second half of his career and likely won't provide much for the Wings in the coming seasons. Other teams will easily outbid us wanting to win today, including some that Iginla will want to play for, expecting they have a chance at a Cup.
Parise is a guy I can see Holland going all out for. We have the capspace, we have the prospects, we have the picks, and this guy can be a cornerstone for years to come. I don't know that we have a top three forward in our talent pool in Grand Rapids or elsewhere. Parise may be able to buy Holland a couple extra years once Dats and Z get into the end of their careers, which will be all the more reason to pull the trigger on this one.

Seriously? That's a scrum in front of the net. They happen every night.


#2230306 Patrick Eaves injury

Posted by Echolalia on 26 November 2011 - 10:39 PM

I can't imagine how bad it would hurt to have an 80mph frozen puck drill into my ear. When a snowball hits my ear at 15mph I'm crying like a little girl.


#2219064 A Goalie is Needed

Posted by Echolalia on 27 October 2011 - 11:38 PM

You'd think that when your number 1 goalie is unbeaten in the season it would imply that there shouldn't be goalie issues on the forums.

You'd think.


#2218589 Anyone else have a feeling that we'd lose tonight?

Posted by Echolalia on 25 October 2011 - 10:37 PM

I had the feeling we'd lose the first game against Columbus.


#2216201 Could these be the Winter Classic Jerseys?

Posted by Echolalia on 18 October 2011 - 04:25 PM

I really like the Rangers' jersey, but apparently I'm the only one.
