Awww, poor Bill Buckner.  Great photoshop but I can't help feeling bad for Bill after watching ESPN's 30 for 30 on him and Steve Bartman.


You too huh? I used to blame Bartman all over for that' though I said I didn't. Then I realized upon watching it I would have done the same damn thing.


Too many people forget it was Alex Gonzalez's booted double play ball that ripped the flood gate open.


#2506782 A plea to Holland.

Posted by Playmaker on 05 April 2014 - 09:35 PM

Please for the love of all that is good and holy, get rid of Lashoff and Kindle. If not both then at least one of them. The pairing of Kindle and Lashoff is a goal waiting to happen. We've had amazing success inserting young forwards into the lineup, why not try a defenseman?

I don't care if it's Almqvist, or Sproul, or whoever, nor do I care if management thinks they are ready. No one thought Jurco, Glendening, or Sheahen were ready either; and they are doing just fine.

So Holland do us all a favor and bring in some fresh young blood.

Complaining about someone is more effective if you spell his name right.  




#2496344 In Memoriam: 19/12/1926 - 18/03/2004.

Posted by cusimano_brothers on 18 March 2014 - 07:11 AM

Today marks the tenth anniversary of the 815th, and final, regular-season tie game played in Club history (in their 5311th game, 6.52% of their games), with 390 in Home games and 425 in Away games. They are one of only four franchises with 800+ regular-season tie games (Montreal with 837, Chicago with 814 and New York with 808). Tie games in the NHL can be broken into three distinct historical time frames:
1) Era 1: Regulation time, followed by overtime
2) Era 2: Regulation time only
3) Era 3: Regulation time, followed by overtime
 
Tie games had always been a League fixture, dating back to it's inception in 1917. How they got there varied over time.
In Era 1, overtime was used in various versions with regards to length, until November, 1942, when it was abandoned due to the war effort. The total number of tie games in this period was 123 in Club history (6.11% of the total games played), with 65 in Home games and 58 in Away games.
During Era 2, a single point was awarded to both teams at the end of regulation. This "Golden Age of Tie Games" accounted for 482 games in club history (5.97% of total games played), 231 in Home games and in 251 Away games.  
Beginning in the 1983-84 season overtime reappeared in Era 3, with only a five-minute period. The total number of tie games in this period was 210 in Club history (7.93% of the total games played), with 94 in Home games and 116 in Away games.
At that time, no one could forsee that the last tie game had been played. Following the second lockout, Uncle Gary decided that as a "gift" to the fans, a grand "gimmick" would be foisted onto the game (one of many adjustments, the players and the fans: the shootout.This caused great confusion in the listing of League standings everywhere in it's first season; who recalls the "Regulation Tie Stat Screw-Up" in the 2005-06 season? I do. With the advent of this "gimmick" so came the death knell of the tie game in the NHL. By the way, another "gimmick" made it's debut in the final season of tie games; twenty-six times (Detroit played in one) and then disappeared. 'member what it was?
 
Some other Club tie game numbers:
Most total goals scored, tie game and Home tie game: 16, 14/10/1988, Home v. St. Louis
Most total goals, Away game: 14, 27/12/1989, v. Toronto
Fewest total goals, tie game: 0, 27 times (15 Home and 12 Away), first game 26/11/1927, Away v. Chicago and final game 01/04/2000, Away v. St. Louis
Most tie games, Season: 18 (1953-53, 1980-81 and 1996-97)
Fewest tie games, Season: 4, (1926-27, 1941-42, 1966-67 and 1994-95).
 
The shootout, with all the hype attached to it, caused the unnecessary, premature and untimely death of the tie game. Hockey fans were told that this was they wanted, what they needed and this was what the game needed to be more enjoyable. To my eyes, the game was just fine when tie games were a way of determining the result of a game, thank you very much.
 
So, join me in raising a glass to an old friend: At least to this fan, you are gone but you will never ever be forgotten.

#2471484 Look who's top in GR scoring

Posted by Bannedforlife on 09 January 2014 - 02:03 PM

Not only do I log onto LGW at least once per day and have never heard Callahan referred to as Dirty Harry, but LGW isn't meant to cater exclusively to hardcore forum posters. Nicknames are supposed to make it easier to discuss the team, not to prove how funny and clever you are. Making up nicknames that no one else uses is obnoxious and unnecessary. Watch...

 

It looks like Yellow Mustard is going to miss some time after catching that elbow last night against the Sabres. Its really bad timing too, because our defense already thin with Big Poppa out with a concussion and Bandit serving his 5 game suspension. I would say this forces us to call up someone from GR, most likely Billy the Kid or The Player Formerly Known As Steve. We might be in trouble on the back end until we get some regulars back, since this leaves the Boogeyman as our #1 defenseman. And you know what that means!!!!

 

Boogeyman - Hot Topic

Heebie Jeebies - Dances with Wolves

My Little Pony - Agent Orange

He's been called that for a few years now, by a few different posters

 

Never seen it.




#2471480 Pissed off: JJ speaking out

Posted by kipwinger on 09 January 2014 - 12:53 PM

I guess I missed the part where Johnson was entitled to be on the Olympic team because he meets the only two qualifications necessary A) be American, and B) be Jack Johnson.  Is it his birthright?

 

He's an offensive d-man who isn't scoring, and who's never been good EVER defensively.  Johnson isn't even a competent defenseman in the NHL and in the Olympics he'd be up against All-Star teams.  No Dan Cleary's or Patrick Eaves' in Sochi. 

 

Finally, it's not like he's the only offensive d-man that didn't make the cut.  Yandle, Bfuglien, and Erik Johnson are all having better seasons than JJ, and none of them made it.  But you don't see them complaining in the news, Jack's the only that didn't make it and made a big deal about it.

Just shut up and play harder, he's only 26, he will get another shot at it, it's not like he's an all star though. He's not bad, but he is by no means Shea weber or zdeno chara, he is a decent top 4 guy, he wouldn't be the guy that puts his Olympic team "over the top"

No idea.  I'm guessing it looks something like this.

#2461380 Mike Commodore's experience with the Wings

Posted by 55fan on 06 December 2013 - 12:52 AM

 

Agreed. Commodore is a whiner. He's also got a terrible memory. Let's go down the list.

 

The Wings started with six wins and six losses, not five and seven... Ian White was injured on the 13th of November, 2011, and Commodore was played only one game in the immediate future---not two, not three---and he played seven minutes, not three....  Commodore played three days before Christmas... Brendan Smith was Babcock's single minor-league call-up on defense in that season, and he played with the team for only four nights (three games) in 2011 (he was then sent down until March)... and so on.

 

If Commodore's going to spill his guts like this, he really ought to ensure first that he's got his facts right.

You have no idea how much posts like this make me smile.  Facts, stats, and solid discussion based on them.

 

I hoped Commie would succeed here.  When he didn't, I was glad he got a chance in Tampa.  We had to bring up Smith for a look-see.  We're like that with out future players that are ripening.

 

If you get hired as a 7th defenseman, and you don't play yourself into a higher position, you're going to end up with 7th defenseman games and minutes.




#2461377 Mike Commodore's experience with the Wings

Posted by Crymson on 06 December 2013 - 12:32 AM

The stuff that he said about his time in Columbus made it seem like he likes to blame others and make excuses for why he isn't playing. After reading that I had a harder time believing his side of the story of his time in Detroit.
I also don't remember him standing out when he played.

But who knows.
