#2650477 Amusing stories you have heard or lived.

Posted by F.Michael on 29 January 2016 - 12:32 PM

Years ago while in my 20's I worked as a security guard in a hospital (good pay, cushy job - great for a college student).


One Sunday morning I arrived to work a tad hung over...The secretary in the ER (Barb) noticed this, and gave me some s*** (all in good fun of course).


So there's this 'Healing With Care' award that was given out yearly (sorta a big deal considering it included all 4 hospitals - thousands of employees - that were in the group), and the top 3 nominees chosen have a posh dinner, gift certificates, pics with the heads of admin.


I figured I'd pay it back for the ribbing Barb gave me - so I nominated her via a fictional German tourist 'Gustav Meinhardt' from Stuttgart (can't believe I still remember the name).


'Gustav' was suffering from bleeding hemorrhoids so he came into the ER, and it was Barb who re-assured him that he was in great hands, and would be fine (I went into detail about the bloody stools, and pain - both sides of the nomination card were filled with all the nasty details of how 'Gustav' suffered, and how compassionate Barb was). 


Several weeks later - Barb was a finalist, and chosen by the admin to have the dinner/gifts/pics (pics of the event were in the hospital cafeteria for employees, and visitors to see - all were dressed up for an elegant evening) - she ended up taking 2nd place  :hysterical:


Not knowing that it was I that pulled this stunt - I congratulated her, and asked who nominated her...'Oh some German guy' she said.

They should replace Tayes and Ovechkin with two more enforcers.  Would make the ASG more fun and give Scott a chance to fight somebody.

#2649642 ROY according to LGW

Posted by NerveDamage on 23 January 2016 - 01:28 PM

Awesome thread! love the humor haha. we all know "that one guy" right?


Really wish Larkin passes Panarin and gets the ROY award. He's been better than great. This young blood boost infused over the past few years has shaped a new Red Wings era, and I see Larkin fitting right in the "C"enter of it. As you guys put it, Parayko sounds like a really good prospect and would be a much needed piece on the D with that colossal size of his. We have a Franchise Goalie in Petr, a League Phenom in Larkin. All we need is a D-man, yet Marchenko and Smith are making strong cases for themselves...in a lesser degree


My closing argument for ROY would be: "Panarin's been carried by Kane. Larkin's carrying the Red Wings".

#2649575 ROY according to LGW

Posted by Echolalia on 22 January 2016 - 11:34 PM

The NHL Rookie of the Year according to LGW

Because we're less biased than the NHL


Here are some of the candidates:


Artemi Panarin


Like the on-ice version of the date-rape drug, Panarin has quickly made a name for himself helping Kane score.  He currently leads NHL rookies in GOALS, ASSISTS, and POINTS.  And while he's only one goal ahead of Larkin for the rookie lead, he's about a mile ahead of the competition in assists and also points.  He's also leading the league in power play points.  In short, the guy puts up numbers.  Including age numbers!  At 50 years old, he just barely made the rookie cut-off.








Harry Potter Dylan Larkin


At 19 years old, Larkin somehow convinced Holland that dropped balls weren't necessary to play in the NHL and hasn't looked back.  He's been consistently among the top rookie goal scorers in the league, and locked up the rookie +/- back in November.  In a season where the Wings' production has been down across the board, Larkin has also made a strong case for team MVP now that Drew Miller's season is effectively over.








Max Domi 



Sufferer of perpetual forehead acne and being the son of "that one guy" as they say in Phoenix Las Vegas Portland Arizona, Max Domi has been a large reason why the Coyotes are still in the playoff hunt despite featuring on ice talent such as Shane Doan, Kyle Chupacabra, Oliver Ekman-Larsson, Hanzal, and literally nobody else you've ever heard of before.  He's also consistently in the running for "runner up behind Panarin" for ROY.  Probably would win bro of the year award based on some of his pics.







Jack Eichel


Everyone's favorite rookie ginger got off to a slow start compared to those rookies who weren't supposed to win the Calder this year (see: anyone not named McDavid or Eichel) but has been as hot as that hair more recently.  In fact, he and Larkin were tied for points going into the Wings/Buffalo game.  However as the final buzzer went off, Larkin skated away up two more points, while Eichel skated away up one tooth.  As far as draft consolation prizes go, Eichel has been solid, and more importantly, not injured.








Colton Parayko


At 6'6", 226lbs, this hulking defensman has made his presence known.  However, in the year of the rookie, Parayko has gone largely unnoticed.  He's second in +/-, leads all defensman in points, and is logging some solid minutes for the St. Louis Blues.  But because defense isn't really a thing with NHL awards, he'll probably be left off the ballot.





Conner McDavid!

Shayne Goatheistberry or something

Anthony Duclair

Landon Ferraro



Who will win this year???  ITS ANYONES GUESS

How crazy will it be if his teammates keep setting him up and the other goalies are easy on him just to piss off the league by causing him to win the MVP award?

Wasn't it just a couple of years ago that volunteering to sit out of the all star game got you a one game suspension? I recall Lidstrom and Datsyuk having to sit out a game because they chose not to go. Now the league WANTS a player to voluntarily sit out? How convenient moral ambivalence can be!

Here's another thing I'd say about Scott. All those people who championed the "vote Scott" campaign (most notable Puck Daddy) need to do the right thing and publicize the hell out of this. Maybe even start a petition or boycott. They had as much to do with this as anyone, and it would be a shame if they threw up their hands after essentially getting him involved in this in the first place.

I wish I could post pics on mobile, but some guy on reddit runs a tshirt biz, and Scott had had tshirts made for all his ASG teammates. NHL really botched this one. Sent the guy across a continent with his wife about to give birth to twins all because the don't want him to play in the ASG.

shame shame


The entire Montreal franchise is a joke for agreeing to this farce of a trade.  They have no intention of calling up Scott and are basically kissing the league's ass.  

#2647400 Miller Out With Lower Body Injury

Posted by Bill Berzeench on 11 January 2016 - 07:20 PM

e_prime, I refuse to believe that you're that big of a Miller fan. It must be a part of the whole thing you have going on with Bill regarding the importance of having Miller to this team...

We BOTH love the Drew. He's the lynchpin of the pk.
