#2034807 Who will be the whipping boys for '10-'11?

Posted by Nightfall on 21 September 2010 - 08:26 AM

Real fans don't hang players on their team out to dry. These are your Red Wings, take em or leave em. Mistakes happen in the game. Players have bad seasons and a bad stretch of luck. Its hockey. This is why its a team sport. Win as a team. Lose as a team.


#2034747 Wings name Red & White Teams (also send 13 back down)

This is probably true lol. We are so deep this year, I kind of want to see a rash of injuries just so I can watch some of our prospects play.


I kind of want to see you get an injury of rashes just for saying that.

You're lucky the minus feature is gone, because I think this had a good chance of becoming the most negged post in the history of LGW.

Why in the world would you type this sentence? I'm not a superstitious person, but come on.


Yeah. No injuries please. How about.... I hope the Wings have such an absurdly high point advantage that they can afford to simply rest the starters for a week and let all the prospects get ice time. :hehe:

2 goals for Sebastien Piche lately, he seems to be good on offense and if he fix his defensive errors he could end up in detroit in a few years.

I like his name too :thumbup:


#2034606 Rule Changes Explained

Posted by Guest on 20 September 2010 - 10:16 AM

That is stupidest video i have ever seen, unless they have secret angles that they aren't showing people half of those hits didn't fall in that rule category.

^clearly a legal hit under the new rules and yet it was deemed illegal in that video

Nope blindside hit with most contact to head = illegal.

Just thought I could share it as it perfectly sums up whats illegal and what's not (note rafalski is subjected to an illegal hit and franzen delivers an illegal hit :ph34r:)

#2034273 Babcock to Change Defense Pairings

Posted by chrisdetroit on 18 September 2010 - 04:02 PM

It's like Babcock came to LGW and said, "You know what, I'm going to give you people what you want".

Thank-you Mike.



He's going to sign 10 enforcers?

I like this a lot, for several reasons.

Rafalski - has noticably slowed the last couple of years and gets beat to the outside far, far too easily. I don't see him as a top pairing defenceman anymore

Kronwall - Despite the poster above me says, at some point this guy is going to have to a top-pair guy. May as well stick him alongside Lidstrom before he retires and its all too late. And lets not forget, he was playing terrific before the injury last year. I just hope he refinds his shot, because it was the best I've ever seen him shoot it - hard and accurate.



You must not have watched the Winter Olympics where he won the award for the best d-man in the tounament. You know the tornament composed of the best hockey players in the world. But you think that he has noticably slowed? yea, ok


#2034257 Who will be the whipping boys for '10-'11?

Posted by McAwesome on 18 September 2010 - 02:45 PM

I predict the choice of whipping boy will be divided among the following sub-groups on LGW:

Pro-Lilja - Salei
Pro-Hudler - Filppula
Anti-Ozzie - Howard
Pro-Enforcer - Hudler, Modano, anyone on the 3rd or 4th lines that doesn't fight

Personally, I think that no one is really immune to being the occasional "whipping boy", except maybe Lidstrom, who can do no wrong. Everyone makes mistakes, some more than others, but mistakes can lead to losses and no one on this board likes it when the Wings lose.

My early odd-on favorite is Bertuzzi though, he is the closest thing we have to a Sammy/Lebda/WIlliams type who makes a lot of the same kind of mental errors on a regular basis.


#2034204 Kari Lehtonen doesn't wear his Chuck Norris mask, it wears him

Fail. Maybe 4 years ago when the Chuck Norris crap was only slightly annoying, but now it's just fail.
