GDT - Game #52:  Red Wings at Canucks (10:00)

Western Conference leaders faceoff tonight as #1 DET (34-16-1) are at #2 VAN (31-15-4).  The Wings will be trying to break above their .500 road mark (14-14) for the first time in forever, and may have a chance as they have won 3 of their last 4 road tilts.

It would help matters immeasurably if the Wings could score a PP goal.  Hell for that matter, it’d be vast improvement if they’d just generate PP scoring chances. I’m no pharmacist, but throwing bombs from the point, incessantly, just isn’t working out too well.  The Red Wings’ power play has gone 6 for 57 (10.5 percent) in the past 20 games.  To make matters worse, the ‘Nucks PK is killing a stellar 85.6%.  Homer is in tonight, maybe that’ll help (Kate needs to be performing some voodoo on that hockey stick, eh?).

I would love to know the criteria TSN uses for hot/not.

Roberto Luongo is hot because he’s 10-7 in his last 17 but Jimmy Howard, who is 12-5 in his last 17, is not hot because he’s 1-1 in his last two.

Oh the travesty of having an average goaltender.

If it’s Luongo, he’s automatically hot.  Remember, he’s an ‘elite’ goaltender, while JFTH is not.  Plus, it’s TSN.  Canadian team/goaltender versus American team/goaltender.

I honestly don’t understand the love for him.  Yeah he’s usually pretty good.  I don’t agree with the general feeling he’s the league’s best though.

Plus there is little in life more annoying that hearing “LOOUUUUU” after EVERY DAMN SAVE.

I’m no pharmacist, but throwing bombs from the point, incessantly, just isn’t working out too well.

Criminy, I’ve been saying this for 3 YEARS or so.  The PP point shot is highly overrated and overused, probably the most overrated and overused facet in the game today.  It’s a relic of days gone by when teams didn’t work as much at blocking shots.

Now, it’s a waste of time, even with guys like Weber, Souray, and Chara.  It’s an extremely low-percentage play.  Goalies used to be small, not go down as much, and didn’t have 384934543805834 guys in the lanes in front of them.

Work that f***er down low and across.  Make the goalie move.  Get it behind the net some even.  And stop receiving passes and taking time to tee it up, just one-time that sonofab**ch.  THAT, and that alone, is the biggest problem with the PP.  That would cure so many ills…

Roberto Luongo is hot because he’s 10-7 in his last 17 but Jimmy Howard, who is 12-5 in his last 17, is not hot because he’s 1-1 in his last two.

Luongo could stop a beach ball thrown by a mentally-challenged Canucks fan (redundant?  Kidding… maybe) from 17 rows back on the opposite end of the ice 2 out of 3 times and the Canadian press would fall all over themselves praising him.  He’s not even the best goalie on his own team anymore, Schneider scares me infinitely more…


I want to see a nasty, ill-humored team.  The same team that physically beat St. Louis, because the Cancuks try to be and act tough too, but in fact they’re the same kind of cowardly team the Blues are.  If that Wings team show sup, the Canucks have no hope.

Yeah, he’s generally a great regular season goalie who finds a way to bury himself in the playoffs.

I suppose I chose a poor example because we’re talking about possibly the most underrated goalie in the league versus the absolutely most overrated goalie, but TSN’s hot/not are always weird and wonky and completely inconsistent.  One would think that there’s some sort of criteria and that it’s not just some intern putting together these hot/not lists for every single game every day, but they’re so baffling sometimes.

Even taking tonight’s hot/not, you could just as easily call Luongo hot because he’s 2-0 in his last two.  At least there’s some consistency.

Why do I care?  I don’t really, this is clearly an arbitrary listing, I just find it curious…

It’s not even a Canadian team thing, which is the worst part.

Fact is, Howard is an American, so the Canadian press will never have very good things to say about him.  They reserve those for Canadian goalies, whether they deserve it or not…

For me, the Luongo thing is more annoying, for a team like the wings who can put 35+ shots on net almost every night, it is a never ending stream of LOOUUUU.  At least Tootoo isn’t on ice the whole game.

I generally find it amusing for a while because a) it sounds like they’re booing and b) they’ll “LOOUUUU” the easiest saves on the simplest shots, so it puts a smile on my face because it makes me think of Patrick Roy’s last game with the Canadiens.

But then after about 10 minutes of “LOOUUU"ing every single god damn save it does tend to get old.

Ugh…Watch out for Kesler tonight.  Really would like to see the Wings generate some traffic in front of the net on the PP.  That 4 on 3 PP on Tuesday was ridiculous…all shots from the outside. 

Looking forward to a good game and hopefully 60 full minutes of Red Wings hockey (please don’t take the second period off).

What’s worse; count how many times Z chugs into the zone, peels off at the half boards and passes back to the point. Then count how many times Wally does that. Heh…who’s getting paid more to do what?

I’ve been a Zetterberg fan since day 1 of his career but holy hell he has no balls this season.

RWBill's avatar

Yeah, although I waived the Z flag all around when he was getting hammered in here last week, he always seems to disappear behind the net with the puck and circle all the way up the other boards, with no real threat or scoring chance created.  When he’s got it on the wing I ‘d like to see him go AT the net and create havoc and loose pucks rather than just circle behind the net.  Defense hates chaos in front of their net, watching a guy skate around behind it, not so bad.

Great stuff Primis.  I agree.  My Nucks even take point shots on the 5-on-3 and I sometimes have to leave the room.

Yes boys, I will be cheering for the other guys tonight, first team first and all.  Anyway, here’s hoping for clean goals without contraversy.  Hopefully nobody scores while running over Howard and Kronwall doesn’t try to kill Kesler.  And if he does, here’s hoping a certain poster doesn’t completely blow his top and come to A2Y demanding answers.  I’ll probably drop by, but I promise to be cool.  I was a hard core Wings man, but I moved down here and then the local boys became a Wings cover band and I eventually took a seat at the banquet.  But I remain a fellow traveller of the 19.

Anyway, you can’t really knock the crowd yelling “LUUUUU” because it is awesome to support your goaler, and the Vancouver crowd is probably the quietest in the league other than that.  It is a crowd that at least knows the difference between a good and bad play, but would it kill them to get a “Go Nucks Go” happening?

G’morning, Jeff.  A cup of Java?  Check.  A bowl of Munchkins?  Check.  The GDT?  Oh, yeah.  My morning’s complete.

I’m no pharmacist, but throwing bombs from the point, incessantly, just isn’t working out too well.

The four-on-three against the fLames had five shots from the point and not one of them made it to the net.  I get that they’re trying to find the seams and hope that the rebounds are there for Homer, Bert, Happy, or Buckets to bury it.  Operative word:  hope.  Hope’s for Precious Moments - not on a Wings PP.

I don’t see any Game Notes that list the refs calling tonight’s game but I do expect the calls to go ALL the right way to the ‘Nucks.  Ugh…

Won’t be on the LB tonight as I have tix for the first of a three-games-in-three-nights homestand for the Wranglers.

My issue isn’t with them supporting their goaltender, but every time he touches the puck you don’t need to do that.  There are plenty of other players in sports that have a last name where you can make the same sound, and you might hear it 4 times a game or something like that.  But every save, spectacular or not?  That’s always been my issue, more of an “enough already, we get it, his name starts with LOOUUU” than a “you aren’t allowed to support your goalie!”

I’ll give you that.  When you go there you really get the sense that you are helping him play better - and god knows we don’t want to risk deflating that ego.  I can imagine that it’s pretty annoying to an out of towner watching it.  Much like the way in which Chicago playing the smuggest song ever recorded when they score bugs the shit out of me.  (or is that just cause they always score on my team?)

I’ll have to attach a picture tomorrow…or may be able to get a guy at work to send me a pic….but this is freakin hilarious.

Ok, so my daughter Amanda is something of a prude.  A few years ago she brought this…vase…home from school that she had made.  Her intent had been a big leaf with water pouring out of it.  Well it didn’t turn out quite the way she had envisioned and mom and I affectionately named it the Pussy Pot and then displayed it proudly on the bottom shelf of a bookshelf in our laundry room behind a pile of boxes.

WELL now I have my own big office with lots of flat spaces on it and last halloween brought said pot in to fill with candy knowing full well that I was soon going to get a rash of shit from the fellas….who were all too afraid to say anything about it since I run the joint.  smile  Much fun I tell ya.

Well we are getting ready for this inspection and had to clean the place up…and one of the younger guys came into my office yesterday and asked if I wanted him to clean .... “it”.  I asked him what he was talking about and explained that he and my office mate were talking out in the smoke pit and discussed how me cleaning my daughter’s pussy pot was just perverted and my office mate cleaning it would just make him out to be a dirty old man.  So would I be okay with him cleaning it.

Man I laughed all day.

Okay…that was alot of typing and I don’t blame a one of you for not reading it all…but I just texted my office mate to send me a picture….
