And here we go....

Enforcer debate #401256


Yet you post in the thread? Why not just ignore it.

I am hoping May will be back up here for some games during the playoffs; I think it will be based on who we play. Bert and Big E need to become a little more physical. And as other members have mentioned since Lilja returned, the Wings have played a lot better.

I can't believe no one has mentioned Bertuzzi's name yet.

Teams are afraid to f*** with us, because no one wants to get paralyzed. :ph34r:

See Andreas Lilja. ;)

We started winning when he came back.

Coincidence? I think not.

It's definitely Lilja. Mojo has a j in it, and so does Lilja. Lilja's j is just silent (well, pronounced differently) because he doesn't want to intimidate mojo, but has more mojo than mojo.

ESAD got banned? LOL.

Oh, and 9-0-1 and 12-2-1 with "no balls". I'll take that, thanks.

Honestly, I've noticed this season outside of Crosby on Zetterberg and a few Abdelkader incidents where he bitched out, teams arent acting tough against us anymore. Normally there'd be scrums and teams punching our stars in the face after whistles all the time, but this year not so much. I think having Bertuzzi, Ericsson, and to some extent Lilja has had a bit of an impact. I'm all about enforcers, and I'd take the 97 team over this year or last years anyday of the friggin week, but IMO the need for an enforcer hasnt been there as much this year. But to your point UK, of course having May in the line-up gave us more balls, just like Downey did, that isnt up for debate, that is fact.

I don't think this is a revelation, although some here will disagree.

I think the Wings euros played tougher in 2008 than they did in prior years, because it helped having guys like Mac, Downey and Drake in the lineup. It's just called leading by example. If your 4th line is out there hitting everything in sight and fighting from time to time, that'll spark the rest of the team to play tougher and more energetic as well. That's what the 4th line's job is. To stir the pot and spark the team.

I give a s*** about a winning hockey team. And this team is currently winning.


Where I come from thats called a glory supporter.

We give a s*** about watching proper hockey. And dont go down the "winning" road either, because Id love just love to point out we had Downey, Drake and McCarty when we won the 07-08 Stanley Cup. Oh look, I did.

You mean when the Wings were losing they were playing with more balls, or when they were giving the puck away too many times they were playing with more balls?

The Wings are 12-2-1 since the Olympic break, all without any balls, apparently. :ph34r:

If you haven't noticed, I don't give a s*** about balls. I give a s*** about a winning hockey team. And this team is currently winning.

You want balls, watch a porno.

LGW hasn't had a good, long, pointless debate about this in awhile

Yeah its been too long since Ive seen one of these dumb arguments so I figured why not start one. Oh yeah you know what else makes these threads dumb... When ppl post without any input whatsoever.

On that note, the wrongly banned E_S_A_D says hi to all at LGW.

Okay while I was watching the Griffs game tonight I was talking to some of the guys and I really noticed something and I was wondering if any fight haters noticed too.

Having an enforcer does really make the team play with more balls. Think about while May was playing. We had guys like Meech and CLeary fighting and we were just playing like we had overall a bigger pair of balls while May was in the lineup.

So I just wanted to say it does seem to me an enforcer does have an effect on the team more so then most ppl here on LGW care to admit. And no I'm not flame-baiting haha I'm just saying something I've noticed lately.

This might still be an accurate prediction. Pignose is looking away from the Cup and doesn't look too happy. Maybe he's looking at Hossa after Hawks have lost the finals to Trashers (another ex-team of his).


#1929663 Wings need a change of jersey

Posted by mindfly on 01 April 2010 - 06:27 AM

We're orignal six, we're better than eveyone else, we'll stay the same.. oi oi

And besides they did change it a bit some years ago by adding a bigger winged wheel logo.. and maybe some more.


#1929658 Wings need a change of jersey

Posted by betterREDthandead on 01 April 2010 - 06:15 AM

After all this time, I think the Wings really need to get with the times and update their look.

Perhaps they could add something with black in it for the intimidation factor.

Red is fine and they could keep it as an accent color, but it's gotten old.

I think a black home jersey, change the logo, and maybe a red third jersey just for throwback's sake would be best.

Lose the outdated look and get with the times.

For too long, they've looked like a team from the 1950's.

Old-time used to look good, but this is the 21st century.

Or, they could add a black and silver third jersey to help with merchandise sales.

Long overdue for this, if you ask me.

So, what do you think?
