Why does the Red Wing guy on the Enterprise Rental Car commercial have to be a dork?

 

I got time for one more beer.

GMR was in town that day, and was wearing his Lilja jersey when spotted by the casting crew...They needed an extra.

I gotta feeling that it's gonna be the Wings in 7.




#2404387 ECQF - (5) Maple Leafs vs. (4) Bruins

It's very easy to see which members of LGW are American and which are Canadian. As a Canadian Wings fan in Southern Ontario, dealing with the arrogance and annoyance of Leaf fans and the Toronto media is almost unbearable. Their loss last night was the most amazing hockey moment I have experienced since Game 6 of the 2008 Stanley Cup Final. Thank you Boston Bruins! 

I am American, but I consider myself to be an "honourary Canadian" (see what I did there) ;)

Of course it is, but my point was in regards to defensive play.  The calibre of guys nominated this year pale in comparison to those just 2-3 years ago. 

I seem to recall some years ago the league gave some thought to the idea of introducing a new award for the best defensive minded Dman.

Who the hell made this, I know I got it from here...I <3 you whoever you are!

All we need now is Led Zepplin's "Immigrant Song" playing in the background :punk:




#2388346 Dekeyser Nickname Time

Posted by F.Michael on 23 April 2013 - 12:11 PM

Well - according to "Player Appreciate.com" - the pimp name generator churned out this dandy for Danny DeKeyser...

 

 

Sugartastic Danny Ice

 

 

 

 


#2387565 Babcock: Is he the right guy going forward?

Posted by F.Michael on 21 April 2013 - 09:50 PM

The REAL question is:

 

Holland: Is he the right guy going forward?         

Good question...

 

When he keeps bringing back used parts (Bert/Sammy/Quincey) it makes ya wonder if he's too afraid to make a "mistake", and go outside his comfort zone?




#2387506 Babcock: Is he the right guy going forward?

Posted by F.Michael on 21 April 2013 - 08:36 PM

 

Yep. Hitchcock is notorious for being an unsustainable coach. Eventually his players tune him out, and it's downhill from there.

Makes ya wonder if a guy like Scotty Bowman could begin a coaching career in todays NHL?




#2387497 Top 5 defenseman

Posted by F.Michael on 21 April 2013 - 08:23 PM

Good thing I kept by opinions to a minumum on DeKeyser prior to him signing with Detroit, or I'd be eating alot of crow right now.

 

Must say he's looking like a  legit top pairing  Dman in the making :thumbup:

 

Too bad White, and Smith aren't playing as well as they could, or should be...Leaves me scratching my head that Kindl is playing better than those 2.



I miss Lidstrom

Don't we all?




#2386898 Concerned - we might not make it in to the playoffs

Posted by F.Michael on 20 April 2013 - 03:12 PM



I'll be in Paris when the last few games are played.  I honestly think we'll need to win the last 3 of 4 to get in.  

In which "Gentlemen's" did you meet her in :lol:

 

On a serious note - have fun, take lots of pictures, and can ya bring back 1 of them lil'replicas of that big metal pointy thing for me?




#2382131 Anyone else liking the pre 2005 more?

Posted by F.Michael on 07 April 2013 - 09:06 PM

Look at my avatar...Stevie & Shanny...Scoring goals, and punching faces...A wonderful combo of skill/grit/toughness...

 

I've said it 1,000 times before...I'll take my beloved Detroit Red Wings circa 97/98 over 2008 anytime.

 

 

EDIT - just think if we had our 97/98 club today, or if we had HDTV back then...Would've made Claude Lemieux's ass kicking so much better!
