#2002321 Blackhawks playing Wings for banner raising game

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 22 June 2010 - 07:56 AM

Don't you guys think its a little biased to put the wings against the hawks on the hawks banner raising game. You know what they'll be chanting when that thing goes up into the rafters. I just hope the wings feed off of that and beat the living s*** out of those little brats. GOOOOO WINGS!!!


the wings play the hawks 8 times/year. that's 10.25% chance that the wings are going to be playing the hawks on the banner game. and if they play the hawks early in the year, there's an even better chance. i like it personally...just like carman said, it'll add fuel to their fire. listen to the interviews with wings players. it stings them when they don't win it cause they have a legitimate shot every year. lids don't like it when someone else has his cup!

Detroit will be in Chicago for the banner raising


The whole city? Wow. That ought to cause some problems...


#2002110 Mike Modano

Posted by puckloo39 on 21 June 2010 - 05:32 PM

Sign him up. I love Modano. He's given his best years to Dallas, but he's probably got something left, and he'd certainly bring intangibles to the ice.

If he won a Cup with the Wings, he would have a legitimate Cup with his name on it, too. Bonus!

:P


#2002288 Annoying Fan Stories

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 22 June 2010 - 01:42 AM

If anybody shows up with one of those at a hockey game, they deserve to have it broken in two over their head. Hopefully everybody will have forgotten about all this nonsense by October.

Ducks fans are pretty annoying...nothing too ridiculous, though. Just some guy next to me with a voice like a foghorn yelling, "HEY HOWARD, YOOOOOOU SUCK!" right into my ear. Insult Howard all you want - I mean, I don't like it, but it is a Ducks game, but Jesus, I think Howard could've heard you if he was down the road at Angel Stadium.


#2001705 Nice little article on our 2010/11 lines...

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 June 2010 - 03:19 PM

What are the chances that these lines stay the same throughout the entire season, and never change?

Line combo threads are fun from game to game, but a whole season line thread is absurd to even plan for or talk about. These lines will probably change after a few games into the season.


#2001456 Bettman says solving hits to the head will take time

Posted by WorkingOvertime on 19 June 2010 - 05:07 PM

I like that. :thumbup:

Please no. While to idea of suspending a player for the length of the injury sustained is a good one, it wouldn't work well in practice. There are too many other factors like did his head also hit the ice, is the injury only to the head area, did the player expose his head at the last moment, etc. Also, many injuries from hits are a result of the person getting hit not being in the correct position to be hit. Therefore, injuries are often a result of both parties, whether or not the hit was dirty.


#2001438 Another Preds trade: Arnott to NJ

Posted by cusimano_brothers on 19 June 2010 - 03:22 PM

Questions:
1) How many fans had "Arnott" jerseys made during his first stint in New Jersey and hung onto them?
2) How many of those fans are trying to figure out how to get rid of the smell of moth balls from them?

I don't know why owners buy teams if they aren't willing to spend money on them. Do they expect fans to buy tickets when they trade away good players from their playoff team and leave tons of cap space unused? Would be really tough to be a fan on a team that isn't even trying to win.

Never said there wasn't cheapshots before the instigator.But it made guys think twice before throwing cheapshots such as Cooke on Savard and Richards on booth.Of course cheapshots are gonna always be a part of the game.Take the instigator out and it makes the pricks like Cooke more accountable for the cheap shots they dish out.


#2000633 Kane and Byfuglien joke around

Yay vigilante justice. What Kane did is ok because the old man he beat up is a scumbag too.


#2000954 Wings sign Ilari Filppula 1yr/$500k

Posted by HelmerFan on 17 June 2010 - 09:17 PM

Some of the bickering over this topic is flat out dumb. "ZOMG he has potential" ..."nutuh he's 28 you can never have potential after the age of 3"...... "ZOMG yes you can" ...."nutuh no you cant" .
People, we signed a guy with basic offensive talent for DIRT cheap, whats the problem. If he does well AWESOME, if not what are we losing? I for one hope he makes the squad and puts up 40 points. It may or may not happen, but if it does why complain?


#2000968 Holland thinking of re-signing Kirk Maltby

Posted by wmubronco420 on 17 June 2010 - 10:10 PM

Agreed. Maltby's time is over, but if it's a 2 way deal he gets to stay with the organization, the organization gets to stay loyal to a warrior for the franchise, and we can still use him if need be, which is unlikely.

All hinging, of course, on whether Maltby is willing to play in the AHL, which I'm not sure he is. I'm sure he appreciates the effort Holland is making, but he must see the writing on the wall. And he DOES have hockey left in him at the NHL level...but he can't crack the Wings lineup anymore. But on a team like Edmonton or the Islanders, no problem. If he wants to stay in the NHL he'll probably reject the Wings offer, which also works out for everyone.


has nobody read the multiple posts in this thread about how 2-way deals work?

Posted by stevkrause on 17 June 2010 - 12:19 PM

I wouldn't mind seeing maltby on a 2 way to go down to GR and teach some of the young guys and fill in if there is injuries, but I do not want him back to take a roster spot at the expense of a young guy like ritola or eaves.

There seems to be a lot of confusion as to what exactly a 1 way or 2 way contract means on this board... I blame the NHL series by EA for the way it mis-represents it -

If he cleared waivers... there's no way he'd take a 2 year deal at this stage in his career and due to his age, there'd be no point to even offer his one - 1 way and 2 way deals have nothing to do with waiver eligibility, they have to do with how much the player is ACTUALLY paid, depending on where they play, the caphit still is affected by days with the big club...

Guys... if it's a two-way deal there is really no harm. If we are deep and don't need him, well then he will hang out in GR, if we have injuries or if some of our younger players lose their heads, well then we'll have a tried and true Red Wing available to call up.

If it's a 2 way deal that's fine, but for the love of GOD do not give him a one way deal. PLEASE.
