Posted by Crymson on 26 May 2010 - 12:22 PM

Fillpulla could work on his tan down there in Florida, come to think of it.

:hehe:


Perhaps you could learn to spell his name correctly.

#1990052 Horror Movies - Yes or No?

Posted by wingsgirl001 on 26 May 2010 - 03:45 PM

No.

Not that I necessarily think they're scary, it's just that I don't understand why anyone would pay to watch other people getting tortured and killed (even if it's all obviously fake, it still LOOKS real). No thanks. Comedies, please.


#1989758 Does anyone think the Eastern conference can win the Cup?

Who would have thought earlier this season the Red Wings and their fans would be watching Kopecky and Leino play each other in the SCF? :lol:

1.
sorry for dreaming!!! i said i knew we wouldnt be getting rid of draper and cleary, does it really bother you that much that i speculate the if we did aspect?? i mean it would make the team a hell of a lot more attractive and isnt that what we all want? i understand the wings are loyal and draper isnt going anywhere so just relax... im just speculating what if

2.
zberg and dats could play on the same line but they like to spread the talent to go with a more well rounded 1-2 punch as well as a center on each top line that is elite on both ends of the ice. instead of having 1 top line you get 2 i understand it. i also understand that they both are amazing on both ends of the ice and they possess the ability to shut down a teams top line while throwing either our 1b unit (dats or z line) at their secondary unit.
flipper can also play center and has been watching dats and z for years and seems to have been taking notes on their defensive play. therefore i say put zberg on dats wing giving him less defensive responsibility and more time to concentrate on the offense and have filpula centering zbergs line it could seriously open things offensively while having the same overall idea of a 1-2 punch. flip franzen hudler could be a great potent 2nd unit and dats and z together could mean 40 goals+ for z.


ohh wait i was dreaming again, sorry i forget how im not supposed to do that on LGW

Well add this to the list as my crappy day has gotten crappier.

Why?

Because I think a guy who should repay the favour to a younger apprentice of his the exact same way he became a GM. Holland was gonig to be overseeing everything Yzerman did and was still going to be in the picture big time.

Yzerman should be the wings GM this year and Holland should be president. Holland has won 4 cups and has had his run but now you gotta train your apprentice for the job but Holland was selfish.

Why?

Primarily because you are acting like a tough guy telling people it is not okay or it is stupid to do stuff when it is perfectly okay to.

If you would've restated the above earlier instead of making Holland out to be this bad terrible person, you'd probably be a bit less nuts. If you did this and I failed to see it, I apologize. Still, Holland isn't doing anything out of the ordinary in terms of greed or selfishness here.

Only girls cry.

And yeah when the way you got your job was because of someone taking that promotion, you should also take that promotion to keep that guy who you just said did so much for this organization here.

Its not like he wasn't going to be involved in the organization, he was going to be president for gods sake.

You're out of your damned mind you know that?

He was a part of this organization for 20+ years and was one of the best athletes/people employed ever by this organization. People like this come few and far between so people get attached to them a little bit. If somebody like this left your company after 20+ years, there will probably be sadness and a few tears as well. Don't tell people how and how not to act or that it's a bit too much. I nearly shed some tears, does that make me less of a man or person or whatever?


So Holland is supposed to step aside for the better of Yzerman's career and improvement when Holland has given zero indication he is going to retire or move onto another position anytime soon?

Give me a break.

Thats a little much. He switched to be a GM of another team, its not like your mom died or something

He was offered the presidency to oversee Yzerman while Yzerman became a gm and worked his way into the league. Jimmy D did the same thing for Holland back when Holland came into the league and Holland didn't have the prior impact on the organization when he became GM. He got cut form the team and became their western scout and worked his way up. Steve has proven he knows how to build a winning team and I think should've got the GM job here except Holland wouldn't do what was done for him so many years ago.

Thats why he's selfish

I started crying the second his voice cracked when he said "leaving behind the detroit red wings"... I cried for a good half hour. Stevie isn't just any other hockey player, he's not just any other VP of operations... I want him to succeed but god... I'm not ready for this.

I used to think I would feel betrayed, but with his Team Canada work and all the talk lately it just seemed like an inevitability. He has a great opportunity: he can't do any worse and has a great core squad to work with. With some luck he may just be able to mold Stamkos into Cindy's replacement as the face of the league, and wouldn't that be nice.

Yeah I retract my statement about an Yzerman Bolts jersey. That was dumb. Thanks for calling me out everyone. I'm going with Stamkos.

Posted by ChitownWingsfan on 25 May 2010 - 02:17 PM

why not?

We played in first game in a Wings jersey and he played his last game in a Wings jersey. If he was on the ice in a NHL game, he was wearing the Winged Wheel. If people want to get a Lightning styled suit that says Yzerman, fine but his jersey will always be a Red Wings one.
