#2250896 Future retired numbers

Posted by dats13owns on 31 January 2012 - 01:11 PM

Aside from the obvious Lidstrom, Datsyuk is the only one that I see having a shot at making it to the rafters. If he continues his dominance, adds another championship to his resume and finishes his career with the Wings, it's a no brainer.

If you look at the fact that the likes of Osgood, Draper and even Holmstrom who have been major factors to the Wings success over the last 2 decades, it doesn't bode well for Z, Franzen or Kronwall, who will likely be Wings for life with success in Detroit.

Retiring jersey's is something sacred, I don't think teams need 20 jersey's retired like the Habs do. It should be for the organizational greats.

Hearing this from other NHLers just makes you realize what a special talent we get to watch night in and night out. You know you are great when other pros are in awe of your skill.


Listening to a Stanley Cup champ (Chara) gush over Pasha the other night the way he did was awesome.

I know there are still aa few years left on his current deal, but I really hope that Kenny and the Wings do everything they can to keep him as a Wing for life. I would love to see that 13 in the rafters with the rest of the greats.

Pavel Datsyuk 0 G 3 A +4 15:20 TOI

Jimmy Howard 14 shots 11 saves, penalty shot save

Not a bad haul for our Wings All-Stars

I may be in the minority here but I really enjoyed all of the weekends festivities. Now I'm for some more Red Wings hockey.

...and I was worried that this didn't come from a reliable source.

No matter what, I will always despise Franzen and Hudler and will never get over the fact that they kept Franzen over Hossa.


This... at least there is only another 8 years left of him playing like he's 40.


#2232408 Mcdonald backing up Jimmy

Posted by dats13owns on 03 December 2011 - 09:35 PM

After what Conklin did in his second chance game I would say the only thing he deserves is to be waived. He played like garbage last year and in his last 2 games he looked like he should not be on the ice at this level. Bad signing is a bad signing...cut your losses early instead of losing valuable points.


You're right, because a veteran's whole career is defined by two bad games, too. What happens when MacDonald has a bad game? We're talking about a backup goalie FFS . . .

I don't even know why anyone reads your posts. You've spent more time bitching about one player than having anything positive or constructive to say.


#2232402 Mcdonald backing up Jimmy

Posted by dats13owns on 03 December 2011 - 08:29 PM

Conklin's played 3 games.

I really like MacDonald, but you gotta give Conks a fair chance.


This.

Pick up where you left off yesterday... just 60 more good minutes then you're going home.

I hate the Ducks... Go Wings!


#2227499 11/19 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Kings 1

I don't understand why Hudler is even on the ice...he is terribleawfulbad.

To give you yet another thing to come here and whine about.


#2224024 What's up with Datsyuk

Posted by dats13owns on 08 November 2011 - 10:01 PM

He turned it up down the stretch tonight, maybe he heard about this thread and got pissed off.


#2223893 11/8 GDT: Avalanche 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by dats13owns on 08 November 2011 - 08:49 PM

Datsyuk looked really lazy skating into the zone there.

FACK MIKE ILITCH FOR NOT SELLING PAPA JOHN'S QUALITY PIZZAS FOR $5!


#2221809 This season is over!

Posted by dats13owns on 03 November 2011 - 07:55 AM

This is thread is pure IDIOCY on a Silver F#%*ING Platter. There is still so much of this season to go, granted I'm on the of the people who said I didn't expect much from this year's team but I can't see this team not making the playoffs. It's going to be and up-hill struggle but if any team can do this it's the Wings. I'm quite confident in my team MAKING the Playoffs. The Wings just have to find the right combo to get things started. It's so funny to me to see how many people are Bandwagon fans and how they are all over a team when they are successful but the minute they show any weakness at all they are off to another Wagon to jump on. What a load of BS. Wings will be fine they are just going through a rough patch, they WILL get it turned around. Let's Go Detroit Red Wings!!


Ummmm... did you even read through the thread and catch that it's sarcastic before you wasted your morning beating the s*** out of your keyboard writing this?


#2221507 This season is over!

Posted by dats13owns on 02 November 2011 - 07:46 AM

Right. Because sarcastic threads like this one are so much better than the reactionary ones after a loss.


The difference is that people making the reactionary threads are at least making a serious attempt to talk about the team, even if the ideas are extreme.

This thread is just trolling.


A- I'm just trying to shed light on how ridiculous people act and have a little fun with it.
B- I'm just as bummed out and frustrated as the next person about this team right now. That Sharks game ruined my night, I assure you.
C- The problem is, headhunting and the sky is falling threads isn't being serious, it's reactive BS. If people weren't allowed to post until 2 hours after a loss, things would be a lot different around here.
D- I've been reading this forum for around 8 years, signed up a few years back and finally got comfortable posting this season. Getting called a "troll" for trying to break up the misery around here lately is the reason why I'm sure most people will never post.

It's 10 games into a loooong season. We've seen two streaks go from one extreme to the other... if this team is still hovering at. 500 in a month, then we can go on suicide watch.
