Closing the book on last season like

Preseason starting today is a nice birthday gift. :leon

We finally got McAvoy locked down. :whew

Still.... just one goddamn game from the cup. :beli

But you know what they say, when you fall off a horse, you pick yourself up, and you eat that horse. :mouf

First round exit to the Bruins here we come.

Red Wings win. Took over the first period and then were able to hold on while never trailing. Preds came alive in the last two periods, but those first 20 minutes did them in. Undefeated still baby

Yeah I know that the Wings are gonna miss the playoffs this year. That was known from day -127. What I didn't know was that I was going to have to put up with a 7 game stretch where the team couldn't put more than 2 pucks in the net per game. Like holy hell guys. I haven't watched this 7 game losing streak, but my god if I caught half of these games I'd be sighing eternally during the week.

This stretch of Red Wings hockey is literally the worst I have ever witnessed as a fan of this team. Really dire  :yuck

Neat article about various little things in the NHL from the players perspectives. All anonymous though.

Wings are kinda middling right now, there's far worse dumpster fires in the league at the moment.

Speaking of, that offsides call leading to the Habs' victory the other night was utter BS, I don't care if you're a fan or hater of either team.



The more stuff like that happens the worse the game is to watch. Why even have linesmen at this point?

Tasty, I don't think you understand.

Look at the goal differentials in these games since the Wings lost to the Leafs back in mid october

https://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/teams/detroit/schedule?season=2019&month=9

Then there is this PK% number that blows my mind.



With that said. I hope to beat your Bruins tonight  :awesome

Well, sheeeeeeeeiiit.

https://www.si.com/nhl/2019/11/26/bill-peters-physical-abuse-allegations-michal-jordan-hurricanes

Quote
Former Hurricanes defenseman Michal Jordán accused Flames coach Bill Peters of physical abuse on Tuesday.

In a series of tweets, Jordán said Peters kicked him and punched an unnamed player in the head during a game.

"After years making it to the NHL had experience with the worst coach ever by far [sic]. Kicking me and punching [another] player to the head during the game...then pretending like nothing happened," Jordán wrote.

Quote
Jordán's accusations come after former NHL player Akim Aliu alleged on Twitter that Peters made racist comments to him when he played for the AHL's Rockford Ice Hogs.

Aliu wrote that Peters "dropped the N bomb several times towards me in the dressing room in my rookie year because he didn’t like my choice of music."

Quote
"He walked in before a morning pre-game skate and said 'Hey Akim, I'm sick of you playing that n----- s---,' " Aliu told TSN. “He said ‘I’m sick of hearing this n-----s f------ other n-----s in the ass stuff.'

"He then walked out like nothing ever happened. You could hear a pin drop in the room, everything went dead silent. I just sat down in my stall, didn't say a word."

---------------

Tasty, I'm watching your Bruins tonight. Hoping for a good rivalry game against the Canadiens.

https://www.yahoo.com/sports/mike-babcock-allegedly-verbally-assaulted-johan-franzen-detroit-red-wings-183958192.html
 
:'(

Quote
“[Franzen] was hurt at the time of the playoffs, we lost to Nashville...and some of the things he said to him on the bench,” Chelios said. “I don’t know what he said to him behind closed doors — but he was blatantly verbally assaulting him during the game.”

Quote
After Chelios’s anecdote about Franzen spread, Johan himself confirmed the story. The retired Red Wing told SportExpressen, “[Babcock is] a terrible person, the worst person I’ve ever met.”

Quote
Chelios believes petty displays of power are one of Babcock’s signature moves.

“What he did to [Mike] Modano was incredibly disrespectful, what he did recently to [Jason] Spezza in Toronto. Those are the things that are so unnecessary,” Chelios said.

Modano joined Babcock’s Red Wings at the age of 40 in a last ditch effort to earn himself a second ring. But as he approached the remarkable milestone of 1,500 games played in the NHL, the coach healthy-scratched him for a late-season game against the Minnesota Wild, leaving him with 1,499 for his career.

Quote
”He tried to healthy-scratch me for the outdoor game in Wrigley Field against Chicago because it was my hometown,” he said. “Just to show that he’s the boss and to show the general manager that he’s the boss, is such a power thing. His ego is a big part of his personality.”

Yeah I don't really see what Montreal is trying to pull either. I think they recently lost Gallagher for some time. Price isn't playing well. Kovalchuk is not the answer. Ahhh... Maybe they can trade him at the deadline if they can show he's worth a depth player position for some playoff team.

Laviolette fired by the Predators. I know they have been middling this season, but I was not aware that Peter was on the hot seat. But if you are gonna try to spring life into your team by firing a coach this is pretty much the last possible chance before the season has gone on too long to change your fortunes.

Really liked the Stars jerseys. Heck I like their normal ones too.

and today I get to watch some Kovy snipes as the Wings take on the Canadiens.

Real Edit: Wings win. They have won all 3 games against Montreal this year. That tells you how crap Montreal is too. Kovalchuck, no snipe. Beautiful pass on goal number 3 though.

Seems like a 1/6 of the league has fired their coach this season. Yeah this one was quite surprising as Vegas can easily still make the playoffs. Usually coaches are fired at the mid point of the season at the latest if the team feels they are good enough for a playoff run, but just aren't cutting it up till now. Vegas is currently on a 4 game skid, but yeah this was a pretty quick firing considering how the last two seasons went.

Gallant should be highly coveted by someone in the next season.
