#2011743 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Drake_Marcus on 07 July 2010 - 02:42 AM

Modano had ONE Stanley Cup ring TWELVE years ago this year!

I wouldn't exactly call that winning over and over again like some of the Wings players or Colorado players or New Jersey players. LOL

If he is STILL so good why has Dallas sunk the last two years and why have they let him go????

Some players just have to know when to hang it up!!!

Kind of reminds me of Schneider who won a cup his first year in the NHL as a rookie and was never able to repeat again.... even with the Wings. He was useless.


Yeah-- shocking that a 40 year old Modano who we're asking to be on our 3rd line couldn't raise the s***ty 09-10 Stars out of mediocrity.

You're brilliant! Quick-- someone call the Hall of Fame and tell them to scrap the future Modano exhibit because some troll discovered the all time highest scoring American isn't actually all that good.

Christ. Your already wafer thin credibility took another shot when you said Modano can't skate anymore (proving that you have know knowledge of him whatsoever).

Edit: limited the digs at Icecapades

Must be making a lot of money.


He wasn't going to get paid in the NHL anyways. Enjoy Russia. Actually, Russia enjoys you.

Dont get too worked up over these theoretical trades that will never happen. :rolleyes:


How am I getting worked up? I just don't see how stating facts makes me a troll... unless you think that a Getzlaf for Zetterberg trade would be as bad as giving up Adam Oates for nothing. I'm done though, you clearly are only interested in throwing insults and accusations because someone disagrees with you, instead of actually discussing the matter at hand. Have fun acting like a brat the rest of your life.

1. It was hypothetical

2. You clearly weren't a fan in the 80s;)



A troll's perspective is always welcomed here at LGW :thumbup:


#2011286 Miller signs 1 year deal

Posted by Drake_Marcus on 06 July 2010 - 03:20 PM

1. He doesn't He's a poor man's Patty Eaves. Eaves outclasses Miller in every field imaginable.


:lol: Like PP goals? Game winning goals? +/-? Oh wait... Miller was better than Eaves in all those categories.

But hey-- Eaves had 3 more points last year so he's head and shoulders above Miller!

Only on LGW can a guy score 10g/19pts, be 3rd most used forward on the PK ice, have 3 GW goals (tied with Datsyuk) and be put down as a poor man's Eaves.

Is Eaves better? Sure, although one could argue they're about even. Your post makes it sounds like people are comparing Cleary to Datsyuk.

I'm not on board with the rightly so part. Never have been.


Nor I. Retire for the Oilers and Kings, of course. Maybe the Rangers, maybe even the Blues. Why, though, should someone like Detroit have to honor someone who never played for them? Why should a team like the Predators, Thrashers, Wild or Blue Jackets have to do so, when the team didn't even exist during Gretzky's career?

w00t, I assume you're in the military. One thing I hate about the military is the severe shortage of hockey fans, versus being back home in say....Detroit. Usually when I do find hockey fans in the army, they're Pittsburgh or Washington "fans", and I end up always having to teach them what off sides and icing are when I challenge them to games of NHL 2010.

Im headed to Afghanistan here shortly (Literally 2 days), but when I went to Iraq I brought my Wings jersey, and I'll be doing the same this time around. Can't really wear it downrange, but I can sport it all the way home when I go on leave :)

Some thoughts on my blog:

Hockeytown Happenings - There Will Never Be Another Bob Probert

He really represented a type of player that doesn't exist anymore, and never will again. It's incredibly sad.

Tell me the last Cup champion that won with an enforcer regularly dressing in the playoffs.

Because that proves what exactly?

It's the same tired old response. Just because they don't play in the Cup playoffs doesn't mean they're not relevant.

Time and time again, Babcock and Wings players have said how they appreciate having those guys on their team. No, not just because they're being diplomatic. It probably has something to do with the fact that when you have a guy like that dressed, a douchebag like Perry is much less likely to cheapshot you after the play. And over the course of an 82 game regular season, that's a lot less cheapshots you have to put up with.

I don't know how many different ways players can say they like that those guys are out there and have their back. Players play bigger when there's someone who can fight on the team. You can see it happen. They're less afraid to muck it up because they know they won't be out there alone.

zero games in the playoffs does not equal zero value to the team.

Well 2007,when Anaheim won.Parros,May..But every team that wins the Cup has a BALANCE of skill,speed,and grit.Its all about balance.I think we need more grit.That should be the top priority.

Exactly. We don't need to be the 07 Ducks. But right now we have less grit than the 08 Wings.

And to say for the thousandth time, I'd prefer the Wings get a guy who can fight and play the game. But right now they don't even have anyone who can fight really. E is big, but not a fighter. Abby is scrappy and shows heart, but hasn't really shown a lot. Lillypads is likely gone and he was never that great either.


EDIT: I'm trying to remain civil, but this is probably the wrong night for me to be discussing the need for toughness on the Wings.

R.I.P. Probie. I miss the days of those Red Wings.

Every team has at least one "enforcer" on their roster.I don't wanna hear that Abdelkader can be our enforcer.No.I don't wanna hear that our powerplay can be our enforcer.No.I'm sick of watching us getf****** knocked around night after night.GIVE ME Af****** ENFORCER!!!I KNOW I'm NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT FEELS THIS WAY.


Tell me the last Cup champion that won with an enforcer regularly dressing in the playoffs.

I'll give you a hint. It was Tampa Bay and Chris Dingman in 2004. Five Cups won with no enforcer? All of those star players left unprotected still won Cups?

Hmm....

Go watch some MMA if fighting is what you want. Otherwise, shut your yap and appreciate hockey, whether it's a physical game or a finesse game. Both things are still hockey, believe it or not.

Maybe he can win some ********* faceoffs on the road in the playoffs. How about that?


:lol:

Are you starting with that again?

Some of our best players couldn't win faceoffs on the road in the playoffs last year. It's just one of those things the whole team needs to improve on.

Yeah the people of Detroit are battlers.Not a resident anymore,but a former one.Detroiters seem to get kicked down constantly,but we always get back up.Bob Probert symbolized the city of Detroit as well as its citizens:hard working,fearless,tough as nails.Probie will forever be an icon in the Motor City :thumbup:

I specifically signed up for this forum to give my regards to all you Detroit fans. I am a die-hard Blues fan, yet find myself devastated by the loss of Probie. What an absolute warrior, and a hell of a hockey player. I am 29 years old, grew up hating Probert, but always dreamed of how great he would look in the 'Note.

I am so sorry for your loss Detroit. Life has a way of smacking you between the eyes, does it not?

Bob Probert is so beloved because Bob Probert was worth the price of admission all by himself.
