  1. WQF GAME 1 GDT: Red Wings 3, Predators 1

    You are about to embark upon the Great Crusade, toward which we have striven these many months. The eyes of the world are upon you. The hopes and prayers of liberty-loving people everywhere march with you. In company with our brave Allies and brothers-in-arms on other Fronts, you will bring about the destruction of the Nashville war machine, the elimination of country music's tyranny over the oppressed peoples of the south, and security for ourselves in a free world. Your task will not be an easy one. Your enemy is well trained, well equipped and battle hardened. He will fight savagely. But this is the year 2008! Much has happened since the Anaheim triumphs of 2007. The Red Wings have inflicted upon the Predators great defeats, in open battle, man-to-man. Our offensive has seriously reduced their strength in the zone and their capacity to wage war on the ice. Our Home Fronts have given us an overwhelming superiority in emotion and momentum of war, and placed at our disposal great reserves of trained cheering soccer moms. The tide has turned! The free men of the world are marching together to Victory! I have full confidence in your courage and devotion to duty and skill in battle. We will accept nothing less than full Victory! Good luck! And let us beseech the blessing of Almighty Yzerman upon this great and noble undertaking. Signed, --- Here's hoping the end of the story is the same. General Al
  2. Flip traded to Atlanta?

    I will cry so hard if we lose Valteri for a rental.
  3. NHL GM's Declare War on Goalies

    We don't need this. Hockey has enough offense. Stop trying to fix what isn't broken.
  4. xGDT (9/27): Lightning @ Red Wings

    Ugh, TSN has terrible highlights AND they don't work in Firefox. I can't wait for the regular season just so I can see HIGHLIGHTS, even. :/
  5. Kyle Quincey on OTR again today.

    Just an FYI, it's pretty damn hard to delete IE in any version of Windows. You probably didn't actually delete it. Just open Windows Explorer to My Computer or something and paste the address into the address bar. Hit enter and you're back on Internet Explorer.
  6. Holland: Free Agent Shopping is Probably Done

    Man you people are hilariously fickle. The cry for years has been to let the youngsters play, and now that we have a chance, you balk at the prospect of prospects. They have to develop somewhere other than the AHL, you know. And if the past successes of our organization in scouting is any guide, we will have some strides forward this year in our crop of fresh faces.
  7. In Who Do We Trust?

    Kozlov will want too much money. Expect to see Fedotenko in a Wings uniform if we're believing what Kenny says, he says he won't pay much for a forward at this time, "the big money signings are done". Fedotenko can be had for 1-2m, whereas Kozlov will want 3-4m. So we'll probably not see Kozlov or Markov. And likely we won't see any more defense. If we're LUCKY we'll see Hasek and a forward (Fedotenko).
  8. Report: Oilers sign Nylander

    Edmonton is fishing for the first pick in next years draft, it seems. Great work, Lowe!
  9. Who is next to sign with Detroit?

    Would be great to see Fedotenko here. He's a pretty good playoff performer, and he's still pretty young. Kozlov would also be nice.
  10. What do the Wings do with the money they have left?

    Hasek, Bertuzzi, Drury.
  11. Bowman turns Leafs down

    What would you call him signing on with Detroit then? Barely at the waterline at the time. And the ship had been underwater for 25 years before that.
  12. Hasek expected to sign by end of week.

    This is a pretty good deal. I will be happy with Bert at that cost as well if he doesn't flop. I will be sad to see Schneider go, but we absolutely HAVE to start letting kids have icetime. EVERY time we do it it turns out well (Lebda, Kronwall, Zetterberg/Datsyuk, Filpulla, Franzen, etc etc), and we can't wait too long or we'll start losing them. So give Kindl some time, or maybe Quincey. As a closing comment here, I would sell the goddamned farm to get Drury on this team because god damn his name may as well be Chris "ALL CLUTCH ALL THE TIME" Drury.
  13. Which of the 7 'big' names get into the Hall this year?

    Cicarelli isn't getting in anytime soon because of off the ice issues. 1. Messier 2. Larionov 3. Stevens 4. MacInnis Larionov damn well better be getting in, he paved the way for Russian players in America, had amazing vision and passing ability, and as was previously said, was a huge member of a lot of the Russian national teams.
  14. New Spam-Prevention Initiative

    Well, uhn, this is my reply then. I don't post often.
  15. Pick 2 Teams to eliminate

    FLA. There ain't enough market for TWO hockey teams in FLORIDA. Who made that retarded call, I will never know. As for Canadian teams? Ottawa. They may play well sometimes, but they're completely faceless and emotionless to me. I'd rather watch golf than Ottawa playing.
