    Abdelkader Needs To Go

    Telling his teammates in the beer league stories about how he once scored in games 1 and 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals, and then was benched for the rest of the series by his head coach.

    Abdelkader Needs To Go

    Isn't he being pegged as the future captain?

    Favorite Ken Holland Catchphrase / Quote

    These may not all be exact quotes, but you get the gist of what they're about. We've heard them on LGW a million times and made jokes about them. I was just wondering what your favorite is? I'll begin with my favorite. "We like our team"

    Anthony Mantha Signs ($3.3M x 2 yrs)

    That's a good signing. Can't believe he didn't go for way more than AA. Mantha needs to fire his agent.

    LCA Ticket Prices

    That's fine as long as it's not somewhere in Missouri.

    This was my thread but I honestly can't think of too many new Holland quotes since then. Holland has become a withered flower more than the butt end of a joke of a fading team.

    Andreas Athanasiou Officially Signed 2 yrs. $3M AAV

    Actually, that's one of the most underrated things about Gretzky. He won many puck battles and worked really hard to get into the right positions. He wasn't some supremely fast, talented player with a hard shot.

    LCA Ticket Prices

    Poor kids. If I was them I'd be wondering why Daddy couldn't take me to Vegas for a Wings game.

    Andreas Athanasiou Officially Signed 2 yrs. $3M AAV

    When has he ever done that to be compared to a peak Franzen in his 2008 to 2010 playoff form?

    Former Wings

    And we traded this freaking fool for a 1st rounder that turned into Vasilevskiy. Good thing we don't need a young Vezina candidate.

    Former Wings

    I'm not talking about the trades. I'm talking about the players on that list who many thought would be the future of the Wings. Players the team drafted and/or invested in. Guys like Smith, Pulkinnen, Jurco, etc. They just never materialized for the big club.

    Former Wings

    There's a flip side to that coin. Holland acquired many of these players and they were on the roster, only to be failures.

    Vanek Signs 1yr. $3M

    This guy's been passed around like a rockstar groupie.

    Jonathan Bernier Signs 3yr. $3M AAV

    Especially with that wonderful defense in front of them that you assembled Kenny.
  17. We should sign Hoffman's fiancee.

    2018 NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs Thread

    Yzerman was in his 14th season when he won his first Cup. Much like Ovechkin, he was the face of the franchise and got most of the blame when the team choked in the playoffs. There was even talk of trading him, like I've heard said about Ovechkin after the last few playoffs.

    Luca Sbisa is going to be sleeping with the fishes after that play.

    Happy Tenth Anniversary

    On this day 10 years ago (can't believe it's been that long), the Red Wings won their last Stanley Cup. Zetterberg scored the GWG in bizzarre fashion when Fleury sat on the puck. And who can forget the tense last few seconds of the game with that puck sliding across Osgood's crease? Here's to hoping it won't be the last one this century.

    Nice. What about Fedorov or Yzerman with playoff beards?

    Happy Tenth Anniversary

    Nice photos. What's up with the Bush 41 and 43? The Wings didn't win the Cup when the first Bush was in office. Also, have you ever wondered what Chris Chelios would look like with a playoff beard?

    The Capitals best jersey was that blue jersey with the eagle on it. Not sure what I think of the Vegas jerseys. At least the color scheme is unique, I guess.

    Trading the Beard

    Could they actually get a first and a prospect for him? He would obviously have to be a rental for a team that was expecting a deep playoff run.

    Porn stars partying with hockey players is nothing new. Just ask the Flyers when they had Richards and Carter. Maybe someone can post the pics for me.
