#2514454 Valenti ripping Franzen a new one on 97.1

Posted by 55fan on Yesterday, 06:58 PM

Oh, geesh.  I'm not from MI, so I didn't know who Valenti is.  I read it "Valtteri" as in Filppula.  I thought he has some nerve to rip Mule after he gets swept.

 

Ok, Back to your regularly scheduled conversation...

I'm staring you down for a few more minutes so you won't see Lucic sneaking up behind you.

I am adding $5 to my donation in honor of Dekeyser's jewels

$2.50 per jewel.  Not bad.

According to the League, it's twenty-five hundred dollars per 'nad?

Seems kinda low.

That's just nuts.

This is why you have a guy like Tootoo on the team. 

Will he win a fight?  Maybe.  Maybe not.

Will he fight?  You bet he will. 

Will he get suspended?  Yeah, but it doesn't take him away for any more time than he'd have been up anyway.

Take a collection in the locker room to pay the fine and turn him loose.

Nonsense!  This is the playoffs!

 

Time for everyone to put on their Big Girl Panties and do their job.

Pledge made for money on the board?  Check.

Thread and beads sorted and ready for bracelets by the chair?  Check.

Unlucky purple underwear banished to the bottom of the drawer?  Check.

Wallpaper set to the last Wing to score a goal?  Check.

 

I'm ready. 

 

LET THE GAMES BEGIN!




#2509990 Great article on the Wings.

Thanks for sharing that.  The link about Lidstrom within the article is also a good read.

Not a good tooth-to-gum ratio there, Zdeno.

Pretty good for a hockey player.

 

As for Rask, I didn't know there were Amish leprechauns.

Going with the hamsters again.

 

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.

An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.

$5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

 

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

 

And now, I'm off for my other playoff traditions:  Get the beads ready for the bracelets, and set my wallpaper to the last Wing to score a goal after each game.

 

EDIT:  Forgot to say thanks for doing this.  It's fun for us as well, and awesome that it's going to a good cause!




#2509429 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by 55fan on 13 April 2014 - 07:12 PM

I went with Nyquist.

Nev and Shaman's posts were very interesting and spot on, and I haven't read too much here that I actually disagree with, but for me, Nyquist has given the team the emotional boost that it needed when Pav and Z went down.  Kronner held them together as a team, and the Kid Line provided some much-needed spark, but without Nyquist, I think the season would have just folded.

 

It would have been easy to look at our injuries and feel that we had no one to lead us to the playoffs.  It took a group effort to hang in there.  Nyquist did what Z was doing (on-ice) at the beginning of the season, but when Z was out there doing it, he was doing it as the captain of a team that was struggling through some injuries.  When Nyquist did it, he was doing it as a kid whose captain was out.

 

It doesn't diminish how important Z is to the team as the captain to say that he was doing what was expected as a captain, but when someone comes up from the minors and does it, that serves as inspiration for the rest of the team, and hopefully motivates the veterans to get going and the other youngsters to step up into a larger role.




#2507512 The Niklas Kronwall Appreciation Thread

Posted by 55fan on 08 April 2014 - 09:41 PM

He wasn't right after that hit.  He wasn't holding the puck in like he usually does.  Even I was speaking to the screen, and I'm a fan of his.

 

Aside from that, he's awesome.  He's a leader.  Even if he isn't Kronwalling like he did back in the day, his game is growing.  He plays intelligently.  He's deserving of an appreciation thread.




#2505783 Detroit says Weiss "Not Getting Better", likely done for year

Posted by 55fan on 04 April 2014 - 03:02 PM

Weiss...  Gosh, the name rings a bell...

 

He's not the one of the injured that will make or break things for us.  Let him get better and start fresh next year.  Then we'll have a chance to see him in a full season without injury and decide whether or not he's a bust.

 

In the meantime, LTIR is acceptable.
