    Recent Spam Attacks

    Hello everyone! First off, sorry about all the recent spam attacks. It sucks, but unfortunately there's not really much the mod or admin staff can do to prevent them from happening in the first place. Since we can't do anything preventative, we have to focus on being reactive when the attacks come in. When an LGW user uses the Report function, it sends an email to each member of the staff to alert us. Granted, there aren't as many active mods now as there have been in the past, so it may take some time for us to get to it. LGW's mod tools make cleaning up a spam attack very easy, so once we're aware of the spammer, we can clear it out quickly and easily. I can't promise that I will be more active on LGW like I was in years past. Family and work concerns understandably take up a significant chunk of my time. But I will promise to at least be more reactive to reports from members, and address any future spam attacks in a more timely manner. Thanks for your patience, and thanks to the members that have posted reports about the spammers.

    True parity is giving the worst team the best pick. The NHL's parity is artificial, with its leading cause led by loser points in games.

    This board is definitely slower then it used to be, but we are also the worst team in the NHL after being #1 franchise for 2 decades. Once we return to being contenders, I have no doubt that people will be back.

    Dear Heavenly Father Please hear our plea. We have suffered Lord and shown through the vast desert of losses we have shown our love for our team. But Lord we are pleading that you deliver us the #1 pick this year. You know the NHL has conspired against your Winged Wheel children by only giving us 18.5% of a potential game changing player. We need you almighty one to put us in the 1st spot. If you will deliver us this pick we will not complain about the coaching or goaltending till the All-Star break In thou's name ...amen

    I'll be napping (gotta head back to work tonight). I can tolerate dropping back a spot, or two - but dear Hockey Jesus don't let Buffalo/Edmonton/Chicago/NJ drop into the top 3.

    As long as we're drafting top 3 I think I'll be OK. But we have to get one of Lafreniere, Byfield, or Stutzle.

    I am prepping for a worst case scenario i.e. 4th. Therefore when we get anything above 4 I can be super happy. If we get stuck @ 4 then I have already prepared so my day isn't ruined.

    Good article($) on Johansson. A great deal of hype in it. https://theathletic.com/1877282/2020/06/18/red-wings-prospect-report-albert-johansson-plays-wise-hockey-in-shl/ “I just saw (them) together, and I saw Albert, and I told myself, Wow,” - Färjestad coach Pennerborn on Albert playing with Jonathan Blum “I think he’s going to be something very special,” - Jonathan Blum “I look at his legs and his body and he’s coming (along) really good. So that will not be an issue for the future.” - Coach Pennerborn regarding his size

    Good thing about sucking is that you can have patience with these guys. There are open spots all over our defense for prospects to grab. We can let them all play and see how they fare. At 25 there might not be that much more to come but we got the time to find that out.

    It's easy to go off topic when there's only a handful of people actually posting content. You can only post the same ideas, thoughts, and opinions so many times before things go stale and you start looking for other things to discuss. If more people participated in the conversation, it would bring entirely different points of view on existing topics of discussion, as well as creating entirely new thoughts of discussion that no one else has thought of bringing up. That would keep the content fresh and relevant to entire point of this website. tl;dr: If you don't participate in the conversation, you can't complain about what's discussed.

    Well, the good thing about having the worst NHL D in about 30 years is that any vet age 28 - 32 that doesn't accidentally poop himself when he farts would be an upgrade over everyone but Hronek, DeKeyser (if healthy), and maybe Nemeth.

    Honesty, when it comes down to the playoff format and giving teams that are "IN" also the shot at #1 OA, I do think 'Parody" is a very appropriate way to describe it!

    Lost in all the essay writing posts, Yzerman has signed 2019 2nd round pick Albert Johansson to a 3 year ELC.

    So your post now comes right after mine. I am assuming you were referring to all of the recent spamming and not me being back?

    Thanks @Jedi I'd love to keep this place afloat for both sentimental reasons and also because I think this forum is solid for people who want to talk hockey rather than which kind of Dorito makes you poop more, etc. Maybe the discorders can get all that s***-talk out of their systems and come back and join us in a couple of years when the Wings are competitive again. Long live LGWs!!!!!

    Everybody in swedish hockey is low key hyped about this kid. Nobody expected him to make the team to play in SHL this season but he was too good to send back to juniors . He played on average almost 13 min a game.
