He would bring some veteran leadership.

And maybe he and Z could get their women to do Red Wings calendars so they guys could have ones like we gals do.

#1999196 CHI Police are Top Notch

Posted by 55fan on 13 June 2010 - 09:58 PM


no s***... I fail to see what a Chicago police officer has to do with the Hawks winning the cup besides the fact that they let her out of the kitchen for their parade

and as we all know, ******* need to stay in the kitchen

Not true. They need to leave the kitchen to make beer runs and bring out said beers.

This just in: NHL officials hired to study whether or not enforcers would improve the efficacy of the Chicago police force, or whether they would tarnish the city's government's reputation, which, historically speaking, is right up there with the trustworthiness of NHL officials. Crosby named most valuable consultant. LGW discusses.

Amen to that. In 15 years Burish's by then ex-wife won't even remember he played in the NHL, yet fans will still remember Pronger.

Wings fans will remember that he touched an octo on a commercial and lost to us in the WCF of that year. The Octopus doesn't forget.

This is a unique approach; from Toronto Star :

I don't think it would work but it is different.

Would it count against the Cap?

#1998269 Leafs changing jersey; naming Phaneuf captain

Posted by 55fan on 11 June 2010 - 03:16 PM

Yawn, another MacK_Attack Maple Leafs update. I hear enough Leafs stuff on the radio and TV, I come to LGW to get away from all that!

Just kidding MacK :lol:

I think there's a thread about the Hawks if you're looking for a change of pace.

Dion as Captain.

Once again the Leafs are making it harder and harder for me to pull for them as my fave team in the East.

I might have to jump on the Lightzerman bandwagon.

Burish showed poor judgment in this situation. He should have said that Chris Pronger is the funniest-looking douchecanoe in the league.

#1996385 Bertuzzi offered 2 year deal

Posted by 55fan on 08 June 2010 - 03:20 PM

Keep Tuzzi and Lilja.

Byebye Lebda.

Meech can stay or go. I'm neutral.

Hope to see Eaves and/or Miller stay, but not sure it will be possible to keep both.

Beyond that, I trust mine team to Doctor Holland.

Still don't understand what's so appealing about him to the womens.

Me neither, and I'm a womens.

#1996334 Lebda to KHL

Posted by 55fan on 08 June 2010 - 01:58 PM

You're silly... the KHL doesn't care about finance!

That's why they'd hire him. He could teach them. But since he's in management, maybe he can just manage their finances.

Or... they have player/coaches, why not player/general managers?

#1995630 Steve Yzerman

Posted by 55fan on 06 June 2010 - 11:29 PM

I have to admit that if I started my own company doing the same thing that I'm doing now, I would hire a couple of friends from my current job. I'd have to hire people anyway. I'd rather hire people that I know and trust to do the job right, and who I know are on the same page as I am. I wouldn't dismantle the place that I'm working now, but if you are going to start something, you need the foundation in place.

I think that at least a couple of my friends would come with me because I'd be giving them higher positions than they have now. I'd be taking people who aren't on the top right now, and putting them in the top in my new company.

Taking a couple of people from the middle isn't going to hurt the current company. That's what happening here. Those couple of people in the middle are replaceable. How many of you had even heard of the capologist? He's not gutting the Wings. He's giving people new opportunities. Those people can be replaced. People move around a lot. Detroit has people like Stevie who stay here forever. This is not the norm. Most people have moved at some point in their career.

This is not a big deal.

Pronger is a douchecanoe.

#1994536 please chicago win the stanley cup

Posted by 55fan on 04 June 2010 - 08:33 PM

I can't help but feel like you're attacking me there. Sorry that I only like to see the Wings win the Stanley Cup, and really don't care who wins otherwise (not that I don't like watching it, I just don't have an opinion one way or another). Sorry to offend you so badly. I guess I can't make a comment saying that a thread like "please chicago win the stanley cup" is best reserved for a Hawks forum (being a rival fan, making a rival comment). I guess poking a little fun at you guys that want Philly or the Hawks to win is also a bad thing (like by saying it makes me sick). Some of you fellas on here need to lighten up a little bit.

It is odd to see a thread with that title on a Wings forum. Unfortunately, there are those who feel that they can tell the rest of us who we can or can't root for, and how our choice determines the depth of our love for the Wings.

Sorry for any bad thoughts I sent your way. Since you're not one of those, I'll go back and give you a +. Pax?
