    Schneider with the wings?

    You do that, we'll see who ends up with the better team ...

    Playoffs predictions?

    No team would want to play the Wings in the playoffs, especially if let's say we go 8th seed and San Jose stay 1st then we'll do the biggest upset ever (maybe not ever, but you get my point) Wings in finals against Jersey or Bruins, that's for sure

    Scott Niedermayer

    Self-explanatory, just wondering if he was more of a factor in the cup win with new Jersey or in the cup win in Anaheim?

    Weird Jersey

    seems cool to me, i'd get one for Sammy.
  6. Datsyuk - Yzerman - Zetterberg Robitaille - Federov - Hull Shanahan - Franzen - Holmstrom Bertuzzi - Helm - Eaves Lidstrom - Chelios Shneider - Larionov Bykov - Fischer Legace - Osgood

    Defensive Pairing Options

    Liddy - E Stuart - Lebs Rafs - Meechers should be fun to watch, don't you think?

    Mike Komisarek wouldn't hurt

    Playoffs: First Round

    TSN, as usual
  10. You still have to admit it guys, the SkillsComp is fun! Watching AO trying his move, even knowing he'll fail, is kinda fun to me. And then again, you have the amazing Kovalev that will try to do a breakaway move. He'll fail as bad as AO.

    It was just a matter of time.

    And on maple syrup!

    It was just a matter of time.

    Well, count yourself lucky man: I live in Montreal. I live with it every day. Even on the buses it says "Go Habs Go! ... Welcome aboard the 67 Bus" Scary.
  13. Having Lidstrom, Kovalchuk, Ozzy & Luongo? Ha! Seriously. Lidstrom will not retire until his early/mid 40's. He's too good in a shape to do so! And, when you think about it, why have Luongo? So much money for the same results as having a less than 1mil goaltender in Conks? Because, be realistic, just because Luongo is in the line-up, Babs will change his goalie rotation system? I think not. So even if he was with the Wings, he'd play as many games as Ozzy, and have to leave the pipes to Conks (or Howard, or Time Tomas? ) So then, a lot of money for 35 - 40 games? Good luck with that. Now, to Kovalchuk ... Give all the money the man wants, he's as good as 150 points with Detroit

    Keeping "The Big 3"

    We all know that Holland is the master in the GM world. He can do anything. So think about it ... Trade Howard for a young player (or again, good draft picks), to be able to take Hossa's place on the top line. Even if we have Leino, Abde or Helm, I'm not quite sure that they'll make it to the skill of Hossa, or to be able to play on the first line for that matter. So? Not Hossa, no Howard, but we get young, exiting players that can get the job done? I don't know about you guys, but having Kyle Turris (fictional example) get's me more happy than knowing that we we have Marian Hossa.

    Kovalchuk named Thrashers Captain

    Let's bring back Winnipeg and Quebec for good players with no homes ... Hossa, any one?

    Vinny Lecavalier on the move?

    If any one is wondering, Montreal was "rumored" to be willing to give up a lot for Vinny. But like ... a lot: Plecanec Higgins Georges Subban Draft picks Now ... someone tell me: Montreal is willing to give up their upcoming defensive elit player, two very talented centers, a well developed, young d-man and future draft picks for one single player? That is not even sure to be used as a core player? Damn.

    Kovalchuk named Thrashers Captain

    Does a "C" really mean "Please, stay!" How many times have we seen a captain get the boot? Vancouver, please? New York Rangers, with Jagr? I mean, even Montreal wouldn't hesitate to trade away their beloved "Captain K" for some draft picks or a few sticks ... I'm telling you, if Ilya doesn't leave Atlanta now, he'll loose market value big time. Leave while your still worth a few good draft picks and some good forwards, friend!

    Tavares and the Wings

    Yeah but you know, for some reason I really think the whole European player team is the best for Mo-Town. Common, who seriously needs Canadian players (no offense, I like them as much as the next guy) when we have Homer that can play as good as them? We have the Euro-Twins locked up for a few years, let's just built the team around them and not look for someone to replace them.

    Tavares and the Wings

    We talk and talk about Stamkos, but what about who he's surrounded by? Look at the TB team this year and the head coach. Thank you, now you all understand why Stamkos isn't playing at the leve that everyone believed he would. Now, to Tavares. It would be a scarier scene if he would end up in Detroit for two reasons: 1 - How badly would we have to slump to finish so low to get the first draft pick? 2 - What would we have to give up to get that first draft pick?

    No Red Wings on All Star starting line up

    But, isn't there a rule that says than no matter the number of votes, there has to be at least ONE player to represent each team? I know last year there was no one for Colorado, but that was a fluke because the player did not want to play. But ... could Datsy, Z or Liddy actually say no to a invitation?

    Winter Classic Jersey

    True. Well, I wouldn't mind it, but we should really just use them on special occasiones ... like ... Playoffs? That would be killeeeeeerrrrr

    Winter Classic Jersey

    If we do follow Pittsburgh's lead and use our WC jerseys, tell me, after how many home games are we going to wear them? Are we going to do like Montreal and only use them once every 35 games? Seriously, as nice as they were, we would never use them.
  23. Maaq

    Where do you want the next Winter Classic be?

    Any one think of New Jersey against New York? Renew the love? Classic; Brodeur against Lundqvist? Or, if it keeps up, Clemmensen against Valiquette?
  24. Maaq


    Geez, Wings and the desire to have Goalies that are old enough to be my parents. Ain't right man, Jimmy/Ozzi combo is solid, good and perfect. I mean, no offence to Oli the Goalie, but move on, get traded. Tampa is calling your name...

    2008 Photoshop War: Red Wings vs. Avalanche

    CheliChair was funny. Actually, really funny. The rest was pure crap. Not only are they Avs fans, but the have less than 20 IQ level. Well, Avs do equal 20 IQ.
