Sorry Edzo…Wings Win

Ed Olczyk is not happy. Not one bit. Too many men on the ice, says he.  Sleep well Wing fans.

Fuch Olcsux.  I’m gonna be happy about the win and not the whining.  I’ve pretty much said everything I wanted to say about the whining on the LB.  Let’s talk and drink about being happy about a win from being down nil-2.

Olsuck is usually brutally bad.  I mean fuching un-listenable bad.  Game after game.  But shit, his homerism was so way over the top awful all game long tonight that NBC should seriously just can his worthless ass right now.

But in the end, SYF has it right.  Tonight we hoist another pint and laugh our freaking asses off over the pathetic bastard and mostly over a win that seemed like it wasn’t gonna happen.

Suck it edzo.  Suck it chicago.  LOL.

Toes was interfered with??  Tell us Eddie, was that before or after he mugged Datsyuk who didn’t even have the puck.  Poetic justice with Dats getting the winner that same shift.  I hope a better angle of Mule punching Montador surfaces.

Hey edzo, in ot, do the forwards have the d and the d have the forwards? I don’t know because every chance you get to say that coverage strategy you just cannot help yourself and say it. Here is one call the refs didn’t miss: Franzen punch one of your role players in the pee flaps.  Suck it hawks.

No one could deny that there were too many men on the ice… but Olczyk and MacGuire were pouring it on a little think there at the end.

The Hawks had more power play chances, a penalty shot, and a non-call on a play that could have resulted a penalty shot against.  There aren’t many teams in this league that would have a good excuse for losing that game after how bad the Wings were in the first period.  The Cawks had their chances, and they didn’t execute, so STFU “edzo.”

Edzo is intolerable. I have no idea why NBC continues to employ him, except that they don’t know hockey so probably don’t know better. So is it always too many men when there’s a change and two players are in the bench area while not playing the puck? It was a sloppy change for about two seconds, but the puck wasn’t even remotely in the area.

For the record, I’m totally fine with homerism and bitching about the officials - FROM FANS! He’s supposed to be a professional. Hey Eddie, put on a fresh pair of big boy pants and do your job.

Crawford after the game:  Crawford wanted interference on 2nd goal: “They come in, do whatever they want and nothing gets called. It’s (bleeping) brutal.”

Hey, how ‘bout that bank shot by Dangles.  Quenneville got stupid.  He put his third pair d-men on Franzen and Dangles.  With E52 and Franzen making mincemeat out of the Cawks’ third pair, Dangles recognized the mismatch and made Quenneville look totally stupid.

F*cking Hawks fans are whiners.  Hawks homer announcers are whiners.  Quennevile’s a whiner.  Crawford’s a whiner.  Jesus, the only one in the entire Hawks organization that’s not a f*cking whiner is Scotty Bowman and I fear that they are going to rub off on him too!

Plain and simple, Edzo should not be allowed to call Hawks games for NBC.  He’s obviously not professional enough to hide his homerism, so he shouldn’t be doing national tv games when his team is playing.  Unless of course NBC wants to let the opposing teams’ play-by-play man call games when Edzo is doing color.  Yeah, didn’t think so.

To be fair, Toews was victimized a couple time by the Wings as well.

I say this every time I watch Wings-Hawks on national TV. Emrick has enough class to call a Devils game on national TV fairly. Olczyk (born in Cook County, played for the Blackhawks, covers their local games) is bad no matter what the teams are, but he’s brutal when the Hawks are involved.

The Khawks definitely look thin this year.  Thank god.  Little worried about the deadline though.  Here’s hoping Crawford stays cold.

If it had actually been interference, it would’ve been too many men, and I would feel bad for the Hawks. After all, us Wings fans know a thing or two about being victimized when the refs miss a bad too many men call.

But he wasn’t interfered with.

A road win at CHI no less.  Outstanding.

Wings lead the Division at the 1/2 mark. 

Even better, they have now played 23 road games (11-12-0).  That means they only have 18 road games left of their 41 remaining tilts (and one of them is tomorrow night at NYI).

Compare STL (also played 41 games) who have played only 19 road games (7-9-3) - they have 22 road games left.

CHI have played 42 games, but only 19 road contests (10-8-1), they have 22 road games left as well.

The schedule shakes out pretty good for DET.

Edzo is brutal…the BC 2 hander and the chop to the back of Homer was justified because he obviously tripped Seabass to block the shot with his face! hahah what a assclown

I was glad to see someone mention montador on franzen. Montador was raping him in front of the net and punched franzen in the side of the head. That was when franzen turned around and hit him in the face.
No complaints about montador roughing our punching franzen before pavel’s goal, or the fact 88 (toews?) Had his stock in pavel’s feet and between his legs as he was sharing around with the puck before the ot goal.

methinks he should be more upset at the Hawks player who stopped Crawford from getting to the puck, because he was too busy trying to lay on Franzen.

maybe it was too many men on the ice, technically.  from the replay we can’t see when the Wing got to the bench, but the door was open.  however, it didn’t affect the play.

when the Wings have too many men on the ice for 30 seconds in the Stanley Cup Finals, and the linesman gives a wink and a smile to the sixth player on his way back to the bench…then he can bitch.

I’m seriously laughing here.

You guys are trolling everyone, right?  Lauding Franzen for punching someone in the head AND calling people whiners because they’re complaining about a too many men non-call?  Especially when it’s Edzo that’s pointing it out?

In the same post.

You’ve really outdone yourselves this time.  Good stuff.

I think you should be more concerned about your pregnant lady punching fan base than this faction of foil hat-wearing Red Wings fans.

Nice of you to obsess over us though.

We’re Wings fans, Master Chief.  We don’t apologize to anyone with a brutal record of overt homerism on national TV.

:10 No wings touch the puck…too many men wouldn’t be called at the bench like that.

:14 Toews grabs Dats by his shoulders and hauls him down.

2:13-2:15 Is that 5 Hawks on the ice?

Yeah, not to mention the Mantador mule ride.
