Smith played incredibly well. Depth is good.

He said he'd be on the trip, but wasn't sure if he'd be playing. He was going to bring sun screen just in case.

Excellent points. The next time I go see the Wings play the Wild (the closest team to me), I will be sure to wear an Avs jersey and jump up and down when both teams score, just so I won't look like an idiot. :rolleyes:

Silly, that's what that is.

Please tell me, you're not serious with a crappy explanation like that. Let me try the same reasoning.

Gretzky < Beliveau

4 Stanley cups < 10 Stanley Cups

Is that anything like
Roenick and Kariya combined < Kopecky?

#2266125 The person below me game...

Drunk posting! Friends don't let friends post drunk (without saving a copy to throw up in their faces later).

The person below me has seen a picture of the person above me lying on her back with her legs in the air. (Totally innocent- check the members photos thread.)

I'll have a hamblacheapee on rye with the sweet potato fries and a Coke.

I'll be watching this game at the bar with friends, its been a while since I've been able to actually watch an entire game. GO WINGS

Don't worry. It's been a while since the Wings have been able to actually play an entire game.

They keep showing up for the third period.

Full 60 tonight, boys. Do that and you won't need OT or shootout.

#2265723 Players you hate for being good

Getzlaf. I'd take him on the Wings any day of the week and I think I'd love to have a few drinks with him (and whatever), but I just want to give him a single-digit salute when he plays against us.

I also like Malkin and would kill to get him on the Wings with Pavel.

I also felt this way about Hossa before he came to our team. Irrational hate for no reason other than that he was good. Once he got here, I loved him. Now I just hope he's happy in his personal life and that his team's losses don't ruin his summer.

I love games against the Wild. I get to see them on the tv. I can't wait! Woohoo!

Wings will win this despite spending the entire game on the wrong end of a 5 on 3 due to the ref thinking that Setoguchi was tripped every time he winds up on his face.

Wings: Mule, Miller, Mursak, MacDonald (not sure how he'll pull it off, but I'm on an M theme here)

Wild: Cullen (cuz he's from Moorhead, but only he gets to score for the Wild and not any other M boys. Just because I say so.)

It gives you something shiny for one of the Alternate Captains to drive down Woodward with.

If you don't win the Cup, nothing else matters.

#2265310 Brad Stuart's family issues

Posted by 55fan on 01 March 2012 - 08:35 AM

Or it could be that Stuie is just a decent guy who realizes that he could have to move at the drop or a hat, and that it is important for a child to be with her father, and he's doing the decent thing.

More power to him.

#2264631 Brad Stuart's family issues

Posted by 55fan on 28 February 2012 - 05:43 PM

As I recall, when Stu was traded here, the little girl was about 9 or 10. They obviously didn't move at that time since it was near the end of the season and it was a rental. He would be UFA in a few months and there was a new baby on the way.

He then got a 4-year contract with a partial NTC. I remember that it was said at that time that he wanted to stay put until his step-daughter reached high school so that she wouldn't have to be uprooted again.

It seems that the plan was to bring her here. I knew a lady who was divorced in California, and in her case, in order to move away, she had to send her kids to live with their dad in the summer in order to avoid the every-other-weekend visits, which would not have worked over such a long distance.

The only reason she got that was that her ex allowed it.

Apparently in Stuie's case, either the dad or the courts didn't allow it, or he and his wife decided not to move the family.

I do recall that he declined a better offer from Calgary because he didn't want to send the little girl through customs alone on her visitations. Considering that he's from Alberta, that must have been a sacrifice.

Hearing how he has put his wife and her child ahead of his own interests has given me a huge amount of respect for him. I would love for him to stay, but I understand why he wants to be back with his wife and 4-year-old son.

It has to have been rough for him to be away from his little boy, yet he has honoured his contract with the Wings, even though things apparently didn't go as planned.

I wish him well where ever he goes, even if it's with an icky team like the Ducks.

#2264534 2/28 GDT : Red Wings 5 at Blue Jackets 2

Nash needs to go into politics.

The Wings WILL win tonight. I wore my unlucky shirt yesterday, so it is not touching whatever shirt I will be wearing today. Apparently, unbeknownst to me, the bad luck can pass on to the Wings even if I don't actually touch the shirt on game day, as opposed to what was previously thought. It also wicks through the other, innocent shirts and bespoils the Wings efforts. No more. It has been banished. The Wings WILL win tonight.

Mule, Kronner, Miller, Janik
