year full of injuries again

Edited by RusDRW, 11 August 2011 - 03:44 PM.

Sweet. This dude was brought here for one reason, to punch people in the head - every other thing that he can do, other Wings can do better. I like that we have a head-puncher. The league has other, better head-punchers, but this one is ours. Better than nothing. Good work, Kenny!

Datsyuk and Zetterberg will team together and cure cancer

Everyone here knows the cure for cancer is Z's beard hair mixed with some of Dat's stick tape, applied liberally to the area. This also is an ancient Chinese cure for impotence.

Bold predictions:
Hudler scores 52 pts all from 3rd line minutes (plus a couple from his time in the box served for bench minors).
Filpulla (and 1st and 4th) is traded at the deadline for Praise, Z and D for C goes catatonic.
Zetterberg scores 40 goals again, and nears 100 points.
Dats scores 99 again, justifies this by setting assists records in the playoffs. Tells the media 'I take regular season off, stay rested for cup' then looks at Z awkwardly making sure he said it right.
Lidstrom puts up 50+ points, is +20 and wins another Norris.

Good Topic!

Ill say:

+ Lids has another amazing season and adds another Norris
+ Smith fights his way into a roster spot
+ Top 5 in NHL GAA
+ Helm scores 20 goals this year
+ Dats nets 100 Points
+ Draper will teach the up and coming Wings how to grow a playoff beard

- Hudler will continue to suck and will then be traded for next to nothing
- Injuries
- Big E will show exactly why everyone at LGW knows he is over payed
- MIGHT be Lids last season..... :scared:

the new 4th line of Eaves Helm and Mursak become the new SpeedLine and terrorise the league.

Commo becomes an instant cult figure by putting Cindy thru the plexi in the 1st pre-season game.

Hommer see's more time in the press box than he thought he would.

Pasha stays healthy and finally hits the 100pt mark for the regular season.

Rex spends most of the year on the 3rd line but becomes a PP specialist and tops 50pts.

Commodore will be an everygame defenceman, 20 points and 10 fights or so.
Helm scores 20 goals.
Kronwall gets a Norris nomination if he stays healthy (now thats bold!)

1. Franzen and Z both score 40 goals
2. Lids wins the Conn Smythe again
3. Ericsson's contract doesn't look horrible by the end of the season as he replaces White in the top 4 (you said bold, right?)
4. Conklin wins 25 games and keeps Jimmy fresh for the playoffs
5. Lids decides not to go out on top and re-signs a one year contract at around 4.5 M

:lol: Haaaaaank

Some of these predictions are very bold so far. If they come to fruition, we are going to be a happy bunch next June.

You know what I think I am going to do? Start a thread asking people to post third line players who suck because they are relied upon for offense and only puy up around 40 points in a given season. I don't think the list will be very long.

- Datsyuk scores 50 goals. Well, actually, I don't think that's all so bold...I'm feeling positive, what can I say?
- Jimmy F-ing Howard whoops ass and takes names and chews bubblegum (however that line goes). This is actually a little too bold for me; while I fully expect him to whoop ass and take names, it's unsafe to chew bubblegum at the same time as either activity, so I hope he just accomplishes the first two items on the list.
- Ericsson, Filppula, and Hudler do so awesomely that each player has his own cheering section at JLA. (Of course, Hudler already has his own "booster club," but that's for another discussion.)
- I was going to say something about injuries, but I think I'll just shut my trap on this one.
- Stevie comes back...I'm going to be saying this every year until hockey doesn't exist anymore. And probably after that. If anybody could lead a post-apocalypse pro-hockey league, it'd be Stevie.

Nobody lives forever.
Some things never die.
Like up in the land of ice and snow,

I sure hope not, because despite all the flack he takes on here and his questionable effort at times, I still genuinely pull for Hudler and find him pretty likable, and well... this would GREATLY change my opinion of him...

JOHN, PLAY THE FIGHT RIFF!

Bold, you say?

- During our annual February Injury Fest, Cory Emmerton ends up playing goalie in a blowout in Minnesota. He scores on the empty net, garnering his only goal of the season.

This is seriously bold as we only go to Minnesota in October.

+1 from me for reference to the Annual February Injury Fest.

My prediction is that people will lose faith after every loss, cry, moan, wail, call for the team's head, declare the season a failure, predict/invoke the beginning of Armegeddon (or however you spell it), and still strut around during the playoffs with an "I knew it all along" attitude.

That's not bold, that's like predicting that ice will be cold :P

I also corrected the spelling of Armageddon for you ;)

* Commodore cracks the lineup for 60+ games and becomes a LGW cult figure after beating the snot out of someone for taking a dirty run.
* Conklin puts in a solid 25 starts and gives Jimmy some room to breathe. Five of these starts will be due to an injury to Howard, during which time he'll post a sub 2.00 GAA.
* Hudler comes in ready for the NHL, puts up 55-60 pts and quiets some of the haters.
* White comes in hot and becomes an instant fan favorite... until they realize he can't consistently score like Rafalski did (who can?).
* Mickey Redmond hangs up his mic at the end of this season (sad face).
