January 2021 Game Threads

Recommended Posts

The 23 year mystery continues. Why isn’t Ted Nolan, the Indigenous Canadian, former Red Wing player and 1997 Coach of the Year with Buffalo working in the NHL? A new 20 minute mini-documentary has been airing on multiple stations in Canada this weekend and is bringing this story to the attention of a new generation.

By the way with respect to the 2019 draft, Canucks fans are pleased that #40 overall Hoglander is already in the lineup and picking up points.

I was listening to the Athletic's Wings for Breakfast podcast. By design, the wings are playing low event/low risk hockey.

And it's actually working based on the amount of expected goals they are allowing(analytics). But their special teams are so horrific both ways, it's hard to actually have success.

That suggests that Blashill isn't deploying team properly or his plan sucks.

Rasmussen to the Griffins and Brome to the taxi squad, all the covid guys seem to be back?  I wouldn't have chosen Rasmussen and Brome to leave the lineup over Nielsen and potentially Filppula personally but what can ya do.  Hopefully Ras plays a crap ton of minutes as the Griffins 1C

I know he needs to play a certain amount of games to qualify for the expansion draft but no clue on specifics...

Unless the plan is to acquire a decent pick with him and then sit him until you can buy him out.... no thanks.  Yzerman drafted the kid and cut him loose in Tampa I'm not sure he would want to take this ride again but I am constantly surprised with sports.

He appears to be pretty deep into Trump (maybe Q?) which I would want to avoid as is (I personally don't want a covid denier, the election was stolen brain dead person representing the Wings), but he has a long history of being a bad teammate and a racist.  The Rangers don't want him back because he got in a fight with their goalie and allegedly got punched in the face by Kreider in the ensuing scuffle.  

From wikipedia for a timeline: During the 2013–14 season, DeAngelo was suspended eight games by his OHL team, the Sarnia Sting,[4] and league for making "a most inappropriate statement to a teammate".[5][6] Additionally, the article which confirmed the suspension mentioned this was the second time DeAngelo had been suspended by the OHL for violating the harassment, abuse and diversity policy, though it did not detail the first incident. In November of the same year, DeAngelo was suspended one game for abuse of officials.[7][better source needed] Despite these transgressions, DeAngelo was considered to be a top prospect heading into the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.[8]

Despite his play on the ice, DeAngelo was difficult to handle off it, according to an OHL staffer of the time. Both the Sting and the Greyhounds went through a "daily struggle" trying to manage him, describing the experience as something akin to a "gong show," especially when the Sting and Greyhounds weren't playing well. Reportedly, his behavioral issues dated back to his days playing youth hockey in New Jersey

On January 1, 2017, the National Hockey League announced that DeAngelo was suspended for three games, without pay, for violating Rule 40.4 (Physical Abuse of Officials). The incident occurred on December 31, 2016, in a game against the Calgary Flames at the Scotiabank Saddledome. 

On opening night of the 2020–21 season, DeAngelo overreacted to being called for hooking, resulting in him taking an additional unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. Head coach David Quinn benched him for two games, believing the unsportsmanlike conduct penalty was unneccessary.[16][26] On January 31, 2021, the Rangers waived DeAngelo following reports that he had an altercation with Rangers teammate Alexandar Georgiev following a 5–4 overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

 

So what he got suspended for in the OHL were racial slurs.  His father went on to defend his son saying he uses the same slurs every day. 

 

He's a piece of trash and doesn't deserve to be in the NHL.

Even if you grew up using a certain slur, I don't see how it is possibly difficult to stop saying a certain slur.  To use non-slur examples, I never once say Peking instead of Beijing anymore or  refer to Jimmy Fallon as Johnny Carson, just because that's what in the 70s we called the capital of China and the host of the Tonight Show.

yeah - it's only a habit because you have kept doing it.

OTOH, while all this may be true, I still turn on the garbage disposer when I want the light over the sink....

Another Wings loss. Kept it respectable tonight against Tampa, 2-1 until the ENG for a 3-1 final.
