    Happy Thanksgiving LGW!

    I just wanted to say Happy Thanksgiving to all the good people here at LGW, thanks for those of you who are sticking this out through a frustrating and painful rebuild and continue to post and keep this place afloat. I hope you eat a lot of food, drink a lot of beer and wine, watch some football, and enjoy this day with your family, loved ones, fellow Wings fans, your cat, whoever it may be. I'm glad to be a part of this site and what we all have created over the years, it's our own little hockey family and through thick and thin, i'm looking forward to the rest of the season here with everyone. Thanks everyone, be safe, enjoy your holiday, and i'll see some of you tomorrow for the Flyers game. LETS GO WINGS!! Happy Thanksgiving.

    It really would be nice to get some more official insight on what’s going on and where things could go. I’d love to start Photoshopping something other than Svech Lives if it’d help. Also work in digital marketing/e-commerce and have built sites and done replatforming and the like. I’m sure many here have skills they could bring to the table, aside from our never-ending onslaught of s*** talking. Seriously. I’ve been posting here basically my entire adult life. Living outside Detroit, it’s become my main connection to other Red Wings fans. Feels weird watching all the games when this place is down. HF boards is not the same.

    Some say its spam, But it's not, but it is. Pick one I don't think we have a spam problem at all, unless you're counting the Koreans and the Russians. I think we have a serious problem with the team being absolute suck. Posting is even slow on the Wings HFBoards these days. The diehard Wings fanbase is smaller than most people realize I think. Most stop watching or watch something else when the team is this bad. In regards to LGW specifically, I'm at a loss at what to do. People like myself, Dabura, Krsmith, and 91ryans, are in here daily trying to maintain this place. I'm inclined to say be the change you want to see in this instance. If you find any of our personalities abrasive, I'm inclined to say beggars can't be choosers if you don't wanna participate yourself.... IDK. I'm sure it comes off dickish but I truly mean to be honest. Team needs to better for folks to have interest. In the meantime we can take solace in the fact that we were here in the bad times. True fans through good and bad.

    I almost hope we get massacred today just so the guys are pissed enough to take a giant s*** on Toronto’s honeymoon with Keefe. The HF boards are expecting a huge win with the Leafs having some days off for Keefe to work with them. I saw some guy say the following: “This will be a huge win for us. I can feel it. Keefe will destroy Babcock's apprentice.” The joy it would bring to see the Wings drop a massive hailstorm on Toronto’s parade planning is unparalleled.

    Admittedly, not all of my posts are winners. Most probably aren't. I definitely do the low-energy s***posting thing. And maybe that's something I should change, for the betterment of the community. Because it's probably fair to say we've got a bit of a chicken-egg thing going on, where, yeah, maybe the tongue-in-cheek banter is a consequence of there not being many people here...and/or maybe it's *part of the reason why we don't have many people here in the first place*. Ultimately, though, I do think it mostly comes down to the Wings sucking. Look at the Blackhawks. No one gave a s*** about them for a long time. Why? Because they were the model of futility. But then they got some great young talent and they started winning and all of a sudden people cared. Am I accusing Wings fans of being fairweather fans? I mean, sure, I guess. I'm not even saying it disparagingly. Most fans have limited time on their hands. If the team is garbage and it looks like management and ownership aren't in a huge rush to change things, why should fans -- people with limited time on their hands -- post obsessively about the team on an internet forum every day? The current regulars -- myself included -- are outliers, not the norm. I don't want to be defensive about any of this, mostly because I don't feel there's anything I need to be defensive about. But, in my defense (if a defense is called for), I'm doing what I can to get people talking. If people want to talk in decidedly non-spammy ways, there are GDTs, there's a thread devoted to discussing Wings prospects, there's a thread devoted to discussing the 2020 draft, there are multiple threads devoted to discussing the rebuild, there are some threads I've been wanting to make for a while now but haven't because I'm kind of waiting for some other people to organically start those discussions. I don't want this to become The Dabura Place. At the risk of coming off as really self-centered, I'll say that there are days where I fear people see this as The Dabura Place, like I'm some egotistical dingus who's just decided to take over these boards and circle jerk with The Boyz. That's really not the case. I don't have very many interesting things to say, but my hope is that if I'm always giving people reasons to post stuff here (that's what I'm trying to do), good things will happen. It's entirely possible that my efforts are misguided. It's entirely possible that my efforts aren't necessarily misguided but my approach misses the mark. I'm open to suggestions. Though, I agree with CRL that "Be the change you want to see" is probably the best attitude right now for each and every one of us. Anyway, here's Wonderwall...

    Nah. He just needs help. Quinton Byfield is likely a franchise centerman and there's a pretty decent chance that he doesn't even go 1st overall (unless, perhaps, we pick 1st overall) -- so that would be a nice addition. And Seider's definitely going to be a Wing next season. Things will get better eventually. But this is going to be a very painful season.

    Unfortunately, we are experiencing a haunting. More like a poltergeist. It won't be pleased until this team is better. We are in for a long road of LGW going down boys. Lorraine Warren will be here next week to help us resolve this issue.

    I've drawn the pentagram on the floor of my office, lit the spooky candles, drank my vile of Dan Cleary blood, and said the incantation "f*** Mike Commodores career" 5 times, but I'm not sure if Dark Lord Babcock has heard my prayers yet. Will keep trying. Really wanna shut these Leafy boys up. tWo AnD oH iN ThE kEeFfE eRa PLaN tHe PaRAde

    Larkin's Stick Slamming

    I mean, easy for us to say. He's the young captain (basically captain) of a terrible team that looks like it's out to lunch half the time. On top of that, we know he's a really emotional guy and he hates losing as much as he loves winning. He'll figure out whatever he has to figure out in due time.
