#2534496 Lidstrom honoured today with plaque next to Yzerman

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 August 2014 - 03:03 PM

I had a chance to go the HHOF when I was about 22.  Back then, I was a much bigger hockey fan than I am today (I watched every game televised), but I didn't know as much about the game's history and its players.  Sure, I knew Gretzky, Howe, Richard, etc, but not that much otherwise.  

 

Nine years later, I don't watch as much hockey anymore (thanks Bettman), but I'd love to go back to the HHOF, because I know more about the game's history and the players who are enshrined there.  I would appreciate it more.    

 

Anyway, that's what I thought when I saw Lidstrom's plaque.  That and the fact that it looks more like Clint Eastwood than Lidstrom.   ;)

This is such a surreal position to be in. Thanks PlayMaker and everyone.

Thanks to you, T.  Your attitude is amazing.  I got involved with ALS charities two years ago after a close friend was diagnosed.  If you have a favorite charity near your home, by all means, don't be shy.  Let us know.  I'm in Michigan and do the ALS walks here.  But if there's a local chapter or a specific charity that you'd prefer, post the info on it.

 

Think of all the money that'd be raised if the posters here had to donate a dollar for every time they bashed Cleary, criticized Holland, complained about Franzen, etc  :)

Very classy move by Danny Cleary. This video seems to highlight why the Wings felt he is such a great locker room presence. Huge kudos for putting up the donation information and putting together a professionally done video that may end up getting some airplay down the road to help the cause.

Dammit Bettman. I can't keep telling people that you're a Muppet if you keep doing things like this, which make you look like an honorable and respectful human...

 

Glad to see how this whole challenge is raising awareness of ALS.

If I had a gun with two bullets and I was in a room with Hitler, Stalin, and the new chick in the Wendy's commercials, I would shoot Wendy's girl twice.


#2533691 Who is YOUR most under-appreciated/unsung Red Wing?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 August 2014 - 03:28 PM

How has no one yet mentioned Andreas "Iron Jaw" Lilja. We're still trying to replace him ... oh, wait, we already replaced him with Kyle Quincey. Never mind. 

 

On a serious note, and avoiding the obvious choices, I'd go with Martin Lapointe. One of the last punishing body-checking forwards Detroit had in the line-up before signing Drake in '08. Since then...

 

Same Andreas Lilja who TKO'd this guy back on November 20, 2008?

Or the same Andreas Lilja who made this guy s*** his pants back on November 27, 2008?  (greatest picture ever)

Or the same Andreas Lilja who made Patrick Sharp.................OK you get the point.
