Former USN (EMN3)
Quite simply what is losing us this series is this.
Detroit has None.
no lucky bounces, no garbage goals. nothing.
Nashville? Lucky Bounces everywhere, garbage goals? that seems to be the only other type they get.
Detroit is Outplaying Nashville in almost every aspect of the game.
Detroit Dominated Game 1. Lost on Lucky Bounces.
Detroit Dominated Game 3. and Lost.
Detroit Dominated Tonight. and Lost.

Favorite part of the Game:
Nashville Scores first Goal
Nashville Fans: Hey Detroit, You Suck Chant starts.
Detroit Scores third goal.
@Jordan_Reis The Obvious answer than is to Clone Lidstrom, Datsyuk, and any one else neccesary and than just bring them up from birth to play hockey! can you imagine how much the rest of the league would hate showing up for games against Detroit with 12 Datsyuk's as our offensive lines? and 6 Lidstrom's on defense?
they would never even make it out of the neutral zone.

@moorecha oh, i think its hilarious, i just don't want to disgrace our board with an article about this completely infuriating player. maybe if he didnt dive, cry, or had class i could respect HIM, but as of right now i only have respect for his skill.
GOD DAMNIT Can we NOT Post stuff about this classless POS on our blog?
@Twig and i agree, the only reason i can see the league handing down a penalty is so i stop hearing "but Shanahan never Bans a WING, hes so BIASED (and ignore you when you point out 8 game Smith Suspension).
2 years, 9 months ago on Red Wings Recap: 3.6.2012 | March
if it is a suspension, it will only be due to the unintended head contact and it should NOT be more then a game or two. Kronwall did not hit him from behind, he did not Target the head, and the player was NOT in a Defenseless position. Voracek had his head down by his own DOING, and that violates a major rule in hockey (keep your head up). if it is more than a game or two it will be a crime.
@ThroatShot @Twig better yet, Scratch his ass for a game or two.
2 years, 9 months ago on Red Wings Recap 3.4.2012 | March
@Twig doesn't exist.
Least Favorite Player of the Game: Goal Posts. seeing as Detroit hit at LEAST 7 of them. Seriously. Gordon Bombay'd.
Honestly, i was glad to finally see a "Holmstrom" call go our way, but frankly, it would have made zero impact on the game other than the Shutout. it was almost like the league said: "yes, Detroit we do like to screw you over MOST of the time, and when you finally have a game that DOESN'T EVEN MATTER, we will throw you a bone. hope you appreciate it!"

@Reddy yeah like when he completely sucked against Chicago and won at the UC right?
2 years, 9 months ago on Ty Conklin is Winning in GR | February
Honestly i always felt that most of the time the team as a whole gave terrible efforts for the most part when conks was in net. look at the games he played: New York Islanders, Edmonton Oilers, both terrible efforts and we get a loss. but he still managed to pull out wins when the team actually played (Dallas, Chicago). i always thought he got a bad rap. or at least more of a bad rap than he deserved.
i am confused but for now i will go with our old fallback mantra.
"In Holland we Trust"
2 years, 9 months ago on You Want Commie? Stevie Y Wanted Him More | February
you know who pissed me off this game? 2 People. one wears a red and white 93. he played like a bag of garbage.
the other person? anyone wearing white and black stripes. seriously? seriously? the icing anyone? how about the blatent hook that every fan in the stands and mickey redmond saw? should i bring up the blatent interference on White in Overtime? or the fact that this game should not have gone to Overtime?
Why is it that the refs just seem to LOATHE Detroit? every game they will ignore maybe 25% of what Detroit does (and face it, 3 of 4 called still aint that great) but than ignore 50-75% of what everyone else does (how is it that Chicago, REPEATEDLY takes 2 or less penalties, or more importantly, 0, three times in the past two seasons, in the UC). am i the only one who feels this way? or is it just me.
2 years, 9 months ago on Red Wings Recap 2.23.2012 | February
This dude is worth it for so many reasons. i do not know or understand why but he seems to compliment Datsyuk and Franzen on that first line really well, and having him and the Mule on that line gives Opposition a thing or two to think about if they should try to "take a run" at everyone's favorite Russian. that and he can actually score, and as you mentioned, his Shootout ability might just be the best on the team. suprisingly enough.

@ThroatShot Chicago fans were comparing Kanes lack of output to Z's. than i reminded them that Z actually knows where the defensive zone is.
2 years, 10 months ago on Red Wings Recap: 2.21.2012 | February
I was absolutely pissed at the refs tonight. the Helm Breakaway should have been a penalty shot. when Helm got called for tripping he was held not 30 seconds before. 30 seconds after the Hawks power play Homer got dragged down from behind and no penalty at all. oh, and both the first two Hawks power plays should have been Diving penalties. seriously. unbiased and fair officiating my arse.
@behood19 we have teo room right now.

@IanHiltunen this seriously needs to be stamped on a coin.
no Joey Mac? the dude was AWESOME TONIGHT. he completely kept us in this game.

@Josh Howard oh i understand this and agree with you, but i cannot wait for the prodigal son to return.
2 years, 10 months ago on No Stevie? Y? | February
@Josh Howard i hope he changes his job. when Holland retires the Son of Detroit needs to return and step into Holland's shoes.
WHAT? Without Stevie Y the Alumni game will be BLAND and Boring.
Honestly i think Conklin was only at fault for the second goal. the first one the defense didn't even bother boxing out and the two closest people to the goaltender on the power play wore blue and orange.
the third goal was a deflection.

2 years, 10 months ago on Jimmy Suffers Broken Finger - May God Help Us All... | February
Honestly guys don't blow up yet, Conklin has been better of late, he played Decently well against the Islanders (4 of those goals were on the defense and what not, if Jimmy was in net it would have been 4-0 Islanders), he got the win against Chicago and he had another win recently.
@Reddy regardless, Detroit was due a few favors before, and certaintly was due one or two after that non call.
2 years, 10 months ago on Red Wings vs Canucks Recap 2.2.2012 | February
after the missed call on the obvious hook on Filpulla's breakaway we were do a few favors.
@DCWing55 thats due to a comment from brendan Shanahan on Pasha.

@Tnhgeno Sarcasm, learn it love it. my point was this, i was pointing out the 1 minute penalty kill. what is required for an effective penalty kill? defensive skill. that is why we like the Namesake, he is a grinder.
@Tnhgeno is there anyway to pretend this guy did not just say we should trade the Namesake? do i really need to post the youtube video of the 1 man penalty kill?
@Kronwalled55 this seriously needs to be minted on a coin. the dude has done wonders for the organization.
@brandik1313 Poor Homer takes a beating game in and game out, i honestly couldn't do it, the dude gets cross checked more than anyone i know in the league. he gets a bad rap and he doesn't deserve it. i have a lot of Respect for him.
2 years, 11 months ago on Blue Jackets vs Red Wings Recap 1.21.2012 | January
@D.M.N I Honestly cannot see Shanny banning him, it was OBVIOUSLY not intended to hurt him, and Frankly Z didn't do much anyways, i mean, it wasn't like Z flatted the dude, he just lost his footing.
@D.M.N what did Z say?
honestly i could care less about 3 point games (IE Overtime games) so long as they are not against Chicago or St Louis or Nashville.

@Twig you read my post on the bertuzzi thread i take it?
2 years, 11 months ago on Red Wings vs Coyotes Recap 1.19.2012 | January
I Honestly laughed at the phoenix announcers when Bert did the Spin-O-Rama (TM).
"I Didn't Know a guy that big could do that move!"
are you kidding? hes done that so many times i knew what he was doing the moment he went wide to the goalies left.
in other news, Congrats to Mike Smith for being the first goalie ever to beat Datsyuk's trademarked move (Marty Turco is adamantly taking notes.)
oh, and Congrats to Phoenix's Back Up goaltender (Post, Goal) for pitching a shutout on 5 shots against Detroit. i thought he played really well.

So confused as how Pavs isn't in the Hart Consideration when Toews (who has less points, less hits, less blocked shots, 1 more takeaway (pavs has 2 games in hand) is at the forefront of it.
2 years, 11 months ago on Sabres vs Red Wings Recap 1.16.2012 | January
@ThroatShot yeah there was two seperate times that the refs let the blackhawks just sit there and hold onto the Red Wings players sticks and nothing came from it, i was not happy at all. at least Detroit got off to the right start in the first period.
2 years, 11 months ago on Amateurs vs Red Wings Recap 1.14.2012 | January
Found this great comment about Pavel Datsyuk i thought i would share:
"I'm tired of people comparing Dasyuk to God, I mean he's good but he's not Datsyuk."
