#2197141 This is why Commodore was the best signing ever...

Posted by The Secret on 07 July 2011 - 01:38 PM

Adding Commodore 64 provides some much needed "byte" on the Blue line of death

...I support Commodore 64

#2186114 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

I'd roll the dice on this for the right price... He's big, strong, can score. I think he'd be a great Red Wing even if he is half the player he was but it HAS to be at the right price.

I hope Invisible Jiri will finally be traded.... will be a good riddance imo

#2161957 Have you ever seen.....

No, actually this stat line says it all for this game.

Shots: SJ 46; Det 25
Score: SJ 2; Det 1

They give up 46 shots to only 25 and you guys are bitchin about dives? 18 shots in the 2nd period alone? Sheeyaat.

Half way thru the 3rd my wife said "One goal isn't going to do it for this game. The Wings better pick it up". She was right.

Dive schmive, the Wings had no jump after the 1st period.

You got it man... Besides the 1st period its was all Sharks. How much time did we get hemmed into our zone in the 2nd period? The entire first 10 minutes was spent in our half of the ice. Niemi didn't seem to know what a puck looked like after a while and we still couldn't score on him on the few chances we were able to get it in that far.

#2149470 Throwing an octopus at the Joe no longer allowed

I guess all the ppl who throw their hats after a hat trick will face the same penalty? I can't see how an Octopus would cause anymore "Bodily harm" then a hat.

I like the way he's playing lately... as Mickey would say "with a bur under his saddle". Its nice to see the big guy step into the odd check and drop the mitts if its called for. Keep it up Bert!

Wow, one bad game and the bandwagon Wings fans are jumping off. Please delete your account off the site and go join the ranks of the Canucks. Some members on this site are an absolute embarrassment to real Wings fans who back their team.

Poor play, bad habits, and lack of focus and intensity this close to the play offs warrants these reactions. Just because we don't all wear our rosey red Red Wing glasses doesn't make us any less of fans. the truth is this team hasn't been the same since that bitter loss to Pittsburgh and I feel some new blood is in order. Who knows what happens this year but of they can't win at home and we end up with home ice advantage... well you tell me what's likely to happen come play offs... Oh right, they will flip that imaginary red switch right and all the problems will go away! If this game doesn't serve as a wakeup call then we are in for some big BIG disappointments come play offs and an early golf season is quite likely.

#2133097 Jakub Kindl

Posted by The Secret on 21 March 2011 - 10:51 AM

I haven't seen as many games as I would have liked to this season but I've watched the past few and I Kindl has improved noticeably. He's still got a lot of growing to do but he's come a long way and at this point I like him better then Ericsson for sure and maybe even Salei. Keep up the good work!

#2106124 Wings Have To Toughen Up Soon

Posted by The Secret on 27 January 2011 - 09:48 AM

What upsets me more than anything, is when Janssen hits Kronwall with a cheapshot, or Kostopoupus injuring Stuart, and no one does anything about it. These guys are supposed to be friends and teammates, yet they don't do a good job of standing up for each other in those situations. I know that wouldn't change the outcome of those injuries or games, but it'd be nice to show somef****** backbone in those scenarios and go after the guy who did it. I think that probably upsets guys like Lindsay and Kocur more than anything else.

I don't often agree with a lot of what you say but you are spot on here. I also agree with a lot of what the article suggests also. I am not pro-goon but I am all for having some guys on the team that do exactly as GMR mentions above.... have some balls and stick up for your team mates. We all saw Hall get leveled by Doughty and we all saw his mates sticking up for him... and that was a clean hit... Our player are too wuss to do it on dirty s***. I'll say again, I don't see any benefit of having a pure goon whose sole purpose is fighting, it doesn't stop or deter anything imho, but I do think this team would greatly benefit from having some players that can play, finish check and stick up for one another! I'd be happy right now to see guys like Franzen step into some checks, Or Filppula learning to deliver a solid check, Where did killer Kronwall go? Remember him and his boarderline illegal hits knocking players out? I thought Salei was going to add some grit but I don't see it? Looks like we have some young kids in the system that could be bringing that element when they make it to the big team but we could use 1 or 2 right now and I think it would spice the game up some and allow us to push back.

#2100594 Wings Negotiating w/ Nabokov

Posted by The Secret on 20 January 2011 - 02:50 PM

Nabokov was a part of the problem for those teams. Blame it on fatigue or whatever, he hasn't proven that he, personally, is able to step up his game in the postseason.

I doubt he'll clear waivers anyway.

He is a better goalie then Howard IMHO. Howards was a s*** show in the playoffs last year at the worst time too. A fresh start in Detroit could be just what Nabby needs... I love this if it happens. Goalie 1a and 1b again... dueling for the starting spot making each other fight harder!

#2096936 Red Wings Tough Guy?

Posted by The Secret on 14 January 2011 - 09:25 AM

This made me laugh because it's true. I think Ruutu would be an interesting acquisition, but it would be well worth it seeing the thread responses and watching people's heads explode because the Wings picked up someone that isn't exactly "classy."

Chelios wasn't exactly known for his class when we picked him up... that was a tough pill to swallow for all, or at least most, at first. He had himself a pretty good career here in Detroit

#2074898 Daniel Larsson's comments on Osgood&Howard

Posted by The Secret on 09 December 2010 - 03:53 PM

Osgood has 3 rings. Two as a starter. A conn smythe run in 2009.

How does this help him and his s***ty play today?

Howard bailed his team out last season in his first year after being questioned whether he could hack it or not.

How big was his NHL resume at this point and what had he proven in the AHL up until then in his 4 years beside that he could be mediocre?

What has Larsson done to warrant his answers? Nothing. He is essentially a nobody going after his potential teammates (Osgood a potential goaltending coach) because he doesn't feel he needs to pay his dues.

Well he came to a new country to play a very different game and was giving the resident 4 year man a serious run for his money... not bad for a noob

He is selfish. Plain and simple.

Maybe true but so long as its not negatively affecting anything who cares if he is a little selfish?

Thankfully Holland doesn't share your "insight" and cares more about the team than the individual.

Amen... that is why i am here debating with you ying yangs and not making millions

Question: Would it be appropriate for a guy like Miller to complain about being scratched by saying that Draper is done? Do you think Babcock would appreciate those comments?

Would be very bold of Miller to say such things especially given the fact that they share the same locker room. Do I think Babcock would appreciate the comments? He'd probably ask for it to be seen on the ice and call him out to prove it

#2074875 Daniel Larsson's comments on Osgood&Howard

Posted by The Secret on 09 December 2010 - 03:13 PM

I'm busy counting how many time people have told you to wake up and realize what Larsson did was incredibly stupid. It's definitely been more than two.

What Avery does is incredibly stupid. What Hudler did leaving DRW for the KHL was incredibly stupid... Larsson answering his question imo was not incredibly stupid... could have been done with a little more tact but I can't say that I blame him for not wanting to spend the next 4 years toiling in the minors and I don't want to see another good player get away due to loyalty factor on player that is beyond his time... sometimes you have to gamble and this is another case that I'd roll the dice!

Posted by The Secret on 09 December 2010 - 02:52 PM

I'm busy counting how many times Larsson's name is on the Stanley Cup.

...want to have some more fun? Try counting how many times Osgood and all his past glory has s*** the bed the past 2 years.

Wait, nevermind. It was pointed out a few posts ago he had a good game against LA. Go Osgood!
