Amazing Crosby had the most stick "whacking" penalties in the league this year...

Pot, meet Kettle.

I've got a news flash: The Wings will not win the Cup this year. Someone else will win it.

Since the Wings are no longer in the playoffs, it is not a matter of being a traitor to root for another team.

If the Wings were still in it and someone said, "Oh, what the heck, orange is just so darn festive. I'll go root for Philly." then I would call that person a traitor.

As it is, we are now picking through the leftovers. The buffet is empty except for some crusty tuna salad and some wilted lettuce. I'm going for the tuna salad. Just because you don't trust old tuna is no reason to say that your saggy leaf is superior.

We can pull for whomever we want at this point in the season.

I have my reasons; you have yours. See my sig.

Go Hawks.



Hey, I haven't cussed anyone out in this thread. I just questioned the sanity of some posters who root for the Hawks. That's not against forum rules last I checked.

Don't know how you can call me a kettle for responding to that poster.

Good to see I still have so many haters on this forum. I was beginning to get a little worried there.

Fans of any team can post in this forum if they abide by the rules and don't troll. I certainly welcome them.

And what are we supposed to do now that there are only 2 teams left and the Wings are out?

And while I know a good bit of it is in fun, some in here definitely go overboard with the bulls**t of real vs. fake fans given by your own personal lists of criteria which are bulls**t. Just because you make the rules of being a fan doesn't make them true. (generally speaking here, not focusing on anybody in specific)

I want to see the Blackhawks win now. Why? The Wings are out, I have some family that live in Chicago and it'd be cool for them to experience, I have a friend who lives down here who is a Hawks fan from Chicago, and I personally don't like Philly sports all that much. If you don't like it, that's your tough luck. Who I want to win or root for does not make me any better or worse of a fan than anybody else in here.

So you can take your "You're not a real Red Wing fan" if you root for the Blackhawks or a team that Pronger plays on or whatever thought process and shove it up your rear end.


I could not possibly agree more. I am a hockey fan first and a Wings fan second... diehard on both accounts. I love the way Toews, Hossa and Keith play the game, have many friends from the Chicago area who are longtime Hawks fans and generally root for the West over the East since that is my team's conference.

Of course I'd be rocking the winged wheel and cheering my heart out for the Wings if they were still playing, but they're not. I still enjoy watching hockey, so the team I'm choosing to back until the offseason is the Hawks (nevermind that, once the Wings got bounced I was praying for a Sharks/Habs final....grumble).

This makes me less of a fan? That's plain silly.

Hey OP, post on a Blackhawks forum. In case you can't read, this is letsgoWINGS.com. Geez. C'mon guys, wanting to see another team win the cup........ That makes me sick :puke:

some stupid people has said that pronger is better than lidstrom alltime just because he has a good playoffs. I would hate to see the conn smythe go to him. It must go to chicago and toews!



The Conn Smythe doesnt have to go to a player on the team that wins the Stanley Cup. Pronger could just as easily win it even if the Flyers lose. That makes this post ignorant and unnecessary.

ur no longer a true Wings fan for cheering for chicago


You guys are all saying what I said a few days ago, and I got attacked for it by some of the dumb Hawks lovers on this site.

It's good to see that LGW is back to being a Wings friendly site. No more Hawks obsession. They're our freaking rivals for crying out loud, and their entire fanbase hates the Wings and always roots "Red Wings Suck".

I'm supposed to cheer for them in the Finals just because of one gap-toothed idiot being on the other team? I don't think so.

Chicago is a team full of Prongers as far as Wings fans should be concerned. Wishing they'd win a Cup is like cheering for the Avalanche!

#1994355 Sidney Crosby - The most hated player in the NHL

Posted by chrisdetroit on 04 June 2010 - 03:55 PM

Ok answer this.

Which NHL player are they going to market?

Crosby has over 500 points before he is 23, career 1.3 PPG in the post season, a Stanley Cup, Olympic gold, Hart trophy, Lester etc.

Just on those accomplishments alone he's going to be marketed, not to mention the fact that he portrays himself as mildly as a cucumber to the media.

Stamkos will get his attention soon enough, but there aren't a lot of players that are in the top 3 of scoring perennially like Crosby and Ovechkin have since they've been in the league.

Maybe if Datsyuk, Malkin, Parise etc. followed up their performances 2 years ago they would be included with Ovechkin/Crosby but they didn't. It's clear that Ovechkin/Crosby are far and away are consistently two of the best players year in year out.



Bulls***. They are marketing him because he is Canadian. Datsyuk has 4 straight Lady Bings, 2 straint Selke Trophys and 2 stanley cups. But he's not Canadian. Lidstrom has SIX Norris Trophies, FOUR Stanley Cups an Olympic Gold Medal (he scored the winning goal) and a frickin Conn Smyth. But he's not Canadian. Do I need to continue...


#1994208 Holmstrom signs 2 year extension

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 04 June 2010 - 09:11 AM

And why do you have Lilja in your estimations? He's done, yeah you made your comeback but you're done... thanks lilja move on. (or hang them up)

BS...why wouldn't Lilja be in our estimations. The guy is beyond solid as a bottom pairing D-man, which is where he belongs and he's a beast on the PK. There's a reason Babs sticks him out there with Lidstrom on the first PK pairing. Not to mention the fact that the bottom pairing would truly benefit from a stay-at-home veteran presence for a modest salary. Lilja's perfect for that and he'd continue to alleviate the growing pains of both E and Kindl.

If he can be had for a similar contract the Wings' defense will be solid top to bottom! If not, prepare for a lot of bottom pairing rookie mistakes this coming season.
