I wasn't expecting this to be up so soon, i'm unprepared! My first offering of many as the series goes on and I rattle some ideas through my head. Just wanted to break the ice on the first page of the Photoshop War.

Now for the second favorite part of the season - Money on the Board.


For those who know how it works, pledge up!


For those that don't know how it works, each participant decides what they would like to pledge for the Wings run in the playoffs.  It could be 50 cents per goal, it could be 5 bucks per game won, it could be a penny for each hit; our members get very creative!  I just pledge a dollar amount per series win.  I'm boring.  You are responsible for keeping track of how much your donation is.  A lot of people keep track in their signatures.  It's a lot of fun.

Once there is no possible way to add money to the pot, everyone PayPals their donation to me and I send it on to Children's Hospital.  I then receive a very nice thank-you note, which I post here.

You can do a board search for previous Money on the Board threads to see how it all works and maybe get some pledging ideas.


Here's hoping we have TONS o' cash to send off to the kiddies this year.




#2508987 Ryan Malone arrested

Or they could just trade him to the Oilers.



Hockey players are human just like everyone else, mistakes are made, but there's no need to obliterate their life, career, and reputation because of one error. I've felt firmly about this in sports for a long time, the media likes to crucify athletes for something as small as how they word something and it's taken out of context. I understand this is more serious, but the media tends to make things sound wayyy worse than they really are most of the time. 


Sheahan was pulled over for drunk driving also, he was 4 times over the legal limit and wearing a Tinky Winky costume. Should he be banished and condemned for life? No, he was young, stupid, and learned from his error as it's not happened again and he's now developing himself as a respectable member of this team.

#2508961 Ryan Malone arrested

I hope he's punished just like anyone else.  Drunk driving kills folks, taking sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers away from families forever.  I wish Mr. Malone luck with any alcohol issues he may have.

#2508533 Play em or rest em?

Posted by Doggy on 10 April 2014 - 08:34 PM

I'm with you on Kronwall. Alfie hasn't been particularly over-worked this year so I'd keep him in if he's healthy.


Datsyuk is a little different as I'm seeing it. We need him to be at max capacity come Boston (or PIT) and I'm thinking resting him is the opposite of what he needs.


He's been okay and contributed, but really hasn't looked like his usual self at all since his return. This is to be expected, so I'm not trying to sound alarms. A couple more games to get his rhythm back before the PO's is the best thing for him as I see it.


This assumes that it is in fact true that he can't exacerbate his knee troubles by playing, as is being claimed.

#2507751 bashing skid the kid

I'll allow it, nothing wrong with a bit of healthy Crosby bashing before a game against the Pens and the potential first round of playoffs, just keep it civil. 


Hell will be unleashed in the Photoshop War if that's how it pans out, Crosby will receive no mercy from me. :lol:





He's starting to mature, but you have to remember, he's 26, it's not like he's an old man. He was thrust into the spot light at the age some people still need their moms to wake them up to get to high school.

Damn; Shanaban had such a nice ring to it. You can't replace that.

#2507660 What is everyones second favorite team?

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 09 April 2014 - 01:31 PM

Since the Dallas Stars :evil:  :evil: just ended the Nashville Predators Season in  a Stupid Shootout,i 'm officially jumping on the Detroit Red Wings Playoff Train

I was pulling for the preds to pull it off, but you guys will do better next season...
A handful of damn good young talent with some experience under its belt, and (hopefully) a healthy pekka rinne.... You'll be tough for sure.
But until then, its good to have you on board.
