A poem:
Change the d-men on the fly.
Give our Raffy one more try
To dissolve this 4-4 tie
And earn us a curly fry.

Oh, oh, Stuie. Be well.

#2091538 Red Wings Tough Guy?

Posted by 55fan on 05 January 2011 - 05:59 PM

Honeslty, how many times this season have any of you sat there and said "man, I wish we had a no skill enforcer playing 4-5 mins a night right now instead of good defensive players. Those fights really win games for us". Teams very rarely goon it up on us, and if you want me to go find my posts about the Wings physical play on HF I can do that too. I swear, most enforcer slappies just want to watch fights, they dont even care if dressing an enforcer helps or hurts the team.

Oh, yes! I have SOOOOOO often wished for a no-skill enforcer playing 4-5 mins a night.

Wait a minute! Isn't this about getting someone that with reasonably good skill who can fight as well? Kind of like, oh, say, Helm or Abby or Eaves or Miller or Ericsson except that they could also do more than hold their own in a fight?

A GOOD player, but a tough one. A DMac. A Shanny. A Probie. That kind of a guy.

Not a time-wasting floater whose only job it is is to goon it up. Someone who can take a shift, and take it well, and THEN punch the lights out of someone when needed.

Then take this ONE guy and add him to a roster that contains the likes of Zata, Pavel, Norris Nick, etc.

Why, oh why, do people always assume that if you like beef you can't have an assortment of side dishes?

Go Ozzie!

I realize that I'm biased, being a huge Ozzie fan, but I am also strong in my feelings that Howard is the Goalie of the Future for this team.

Still, I feel it is in the best interest of both the goalies and the team that both start as much as possible (edge to Howard) so that Howard is fresh for the playoffs and Ozzie is ready in case of the unthinkable.

Go Wings!!!!!

Ozzie with the double hat trick and a Gordie Howe to boot!

#2089997 Little things that bother you..

Posted by 55fan on 03 January 2011 - 03:47 PM

[quote name='ToMaToToWnWinGsFaN_24' date='03 January 2011 - 01:40 AM' timestamp='1294040425' post='2089842']
A couple other small things that bother me that I failed to mention before:

1. Being the third wheel. Every time I go out with my two guy friends, they ALWAYS manage to bring their "significant others". It also doesn't help that they (the *******) are so stuck up, complain about everything, and think they are "oh, so perfect". I feel like I'm stuck with a bunch of highschoolers. What makes it even worse is I'm the youngest of the group. :blink:

2. While I'm driving down the road, all of a sudden the person who is stopped at an intersection or a business turns very quickly as I'm approaching them, forcing me to slow down.

3. People who never say "thank you" when I give them something, or "please" when they ask for something. I mean, shouldn't they have learned that by now?

4. Whenever Tim Horton's mixes up my order. If I order a double double (2 cream, 2 sugar) they instead give me a triple triple (3 cream, 3 sugar). One time I ordered a decaf and they gave me a French vanilla. I'll take it because I love French vanilla, but come on, you have ears for a reason!

Anyway, yeah. I didn't do this one with grammatical errors (or did I?)

If I did, a plus rating is waiting for you. ;)
I'm a plus *****. Sioux me.

At first I wondered why we had a half GDT, but then I figured it out.

Go Wings.

Because Howard is in a little slump and he is the future goalie of the organization. Ozzie wont be our guy going into playoffs and likely wont even be on the team next year. I don't know why so many people think he should start as much as Howard.

I'll be at this game, looking forward to seeing Tatar and Mursak live in action. I hope the wings win.

I can't speak for others, but I would like to see Ozzie have a few more starts because A) Howard needs a bit of rest now and again so he will be fresher for the playoffs and B) if, God forbid, anything happens to Howie, we need Ozzie to be rust-free.

#2088954 1/1 GDT: 2011 Winter Classic

Posted by 55fan on 01 January 2011 - 10:52 PM

That's not the point. It's not needed in the outdoor game either.

How the wind blows can (note CAN, not that it always does) have a huge effect on the play. Ask your kids what it's like with the wind blowing in your face as opposed to your back.

Switching (or having the option of switching) just makes it more fair in games where there are elements such as wind, blowing snow, or rain.

However, it's just outdoor games, so it's not a big deal.

Congrats, Caps. Nice watching the game with you folks. I'm off to work.

They compared Frazier and Ali, who fought in man to man combat 3 times, as the best boxers in the world.

Somehow, Ovi and Crosby is comparable?

NBC should suck a c*ck.

They're under contract for Sid's.

It was weird watching the replay of the wings-hawks winter classic. I saw this guy named Hudler drive the net and weave in and out players.

Was the wind at his back? That makes all the difference, you know.

Why the hell not? They win games every week that you tell us they are going to lose.

And still, people try to stifle him.
Don't mess with success.
