#2533989 Greatest Wings game ever

Posted by themcityblues on 10 August 2014 - 09:06 PM

The 7-0 squashing of the Avs in 2002. It was the pinnacle for my love of the organization. I've lived in Colorado since 1995 and often had rivalries with the Av fans. When the Wings murdered the Avs 7-0 it was, in a sense, a victory in the final battle.

Man, everybody could've made $65 million in the "financial industry" if not for a few head injuries here and there. I mean, in the "financial industry" its a sure thing. All you need is a good brain and that $65 million begins to flow.

I never heard him use that one.  

Interestingly, he said that one right after the kids one.

 

When Nyquist was in GR and we put Sammy out there for 1 game or something.

My favorite... all time and probably forever...

 

"Kids are not the answer"

 

It just has a ring to it after what Nyquist, Tats and Sheahan showed us weeks later. The irony is still hilarious to me.

 

I also like

 

"It's a tough league"




#2529766 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

If Quincey could play like he did the last 3-4 weeks of last season, I'd actually be pretty happy with him on the team.




#2518986 Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

Posted by themcityblues on 02 May 2014 - 10:20 PM

Pay a guy $4 mil over two seasons to play for you.  Said player brings exactly what everybody expected.  Play him for 11 games.  Send him down to the juniors.  Buy out his contract.

 

Similar retardedness with Samuelsson.  Why the hell is this guy even picking up the washed up baggage from these teams, paying them millions, playing them next to little, and then buying out their contracts?

 

This is Ken Holland.

 the PP is our enforcer. 

In hindsight, it's incredible he said this.  Our PP is dogs*** and definitely in the worst 2/3rds of the league.

I agree about Mantha. Alfie left his career to come to Detroit and win a cup, I think we need for give him another run. However I want to see some major changes in the offseason.

 

I get the impression Alfie will never win a cup.  This playoffs it looked like he wanted his team to get the cup for him more than he wanted to get it for himself.  He wasn't very good, and I was extremely excited when he came at the beginning of the year.

I never thought I would be saying this, but I think I just turned into an interim Habs fan. F*ck the Bruins.

Nothing would make me a Habs fan.

If Marchand scores with his nose, but the refs determine the nose made a kicking motion, is it still a goal?

Franzen was so brutal today.  Responsible for 2 goals against.  Nice season, Franzen!

I don't like their collapse-style PK.  It worked well in the regular season, but it's not good playoff hockey.  Boston is > 40% on the PP because Detroit gives them all the ice they want.  It's embarassing.




#2515694 Do you want Jonas Gustavsson re-signed?

Posted by themcityblues on 25 April 2014 - 12:40 AM

He's paid 1.5 million and he is 16-5 with a 2.63 and .908 SV%.  Hell yes you bring him back.
