#2547670 Brendan Shanahan: a letter to my younger self

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 06 November 2014 - 05:08 PM

Too funny Shanny
 
A friend of mines mom was a real estate agent back in the day and she was somehow involved in the sale of Shanny's home in Detroit. Apparently all he had in his basement (which was a dark unfinished cellar basically) were boxes of thousands of Shanahan trading cards and cot, not a bed, a cot. He told her that that is where he sleeps on the night before a game. Dude's hardcore.

Ha.
On nights where I HAVE to be up the next morning and my girls over I sleep on the couch.

Not hardcore.
Logical.
But shannys probably hardcore.

Nice to see Ericsson summon his 'inner Viking', and go Valhalla on his ass.

That was when Montreal won those 5 Cups in a row.  Wouldn't it be something to travel back in time to watch that team play?  




#2542757 Buffalo to retire Hasek's number

Posted by Bannedforlife on 21 October 2014 - 12:20 AM

He'll probably use his speech as an opportunity to announce his un-retirement from the NHL...

 

Classic Hasek

Well-deserved.  The greatest ever*.

 

*This statement is my opinion.  You may have your own, to which you are entitled, but this thread is about Dom.  Perhaps there will be a goalie thread someday in which we can discuss other goalies.  This would be lovely as there have been other good ones around Dom's level.

I can't say much more about Dom, except that he deserves every kudo he receives.  He'll be happy to see the Wings again, as well. 

 

Wish I could be there.  :wub:




#2529410 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

I think we can all agree

 

 

I disagree.

Posted by WingedWheel91 on 02 July 2014 - 11:01 AM

What is wrong with you people?

 

You cannot and will not be in a position to compete for the Stanley Cup every year in a hard capped system.  If you are lucky enough to make the playoffs every year in between then that's what you have to be excited about.

 

Plus the emergence of a very young core of players, who (even if only one) can turn into a superstar this season. You also have Mantha, Pulkinen, and 2-3 AHL Defenseman who look very promising already. If Kenny HAD to sign Boyle or Niskanen because we had no OTHER alternatives he would have jacked the offers, but he probably knows a bit more than we do about who we have coming up and wants to atleast give them a try

You're right. Abdelkader, Glendenning, and Miller in rotating top 6 roles has cup written all over it (despite the fact all 3 would barely make the 4th line on most teams). 

 

We have some shining stars and glimmers of bright spots don't get me wrong, but the majority of our roster is an AHL team, plain and simple. Instead of finishing in the middle and possible BARELY squeezing in the playoffs just to get embarrassed, which accomplishes absolutely nothing, why not hope for a bottom finish and look forward to a high pick and org changes?

Now there's something to get excited about. 

 

How are Glendenning and Miller in rotating top 6 roles?? You realize forward depth is one of our strengths right?

 

Just because we didn't land a top defenceman doesn't turn half our roster into an AHL squad....

 

I'm as disappointed as anyone but some of you guys need a serious reality check...
