#2027529 Jim Nill: Jakub Kindl 'should fit in well with us'

Posted by F.Michael on 19 August 2010 - 04:33 PM

Atleast he's not over-hyping him like some brass' like to do.

...or like some posters here

Whatever he wears, I just hope he stays away from 22.

With all due respect Lebda is a much better player.


#2027070 How big of a Wings fan is your Wife/Girlfriend/Significant Other?

Posted by F.Michael on 18 August 2010 - 11:31 AM

My blow up doll can't get enough hockey.

At least she won't ask you questions about icing, and offsides.

#2024753 Designer shares idea for new rink

I've always liked Schulzte's concept of a New Olympia :thumbup:


#2023569 Would You Buy A Modano Jersey?

Posted by F.Michael on 07 August 2010 - 05:30 AM

I would buy it without question if it weren't for the high cost of jerseys, especially if they have to be sent overseas. I still need a Franzen jersey first.

Having said that, I'd buy it immediately if we were to win the cup.

Also the #90 just looks awesome :P

Save your pennies, and then go all-out on a shopping spree (buy mutltiple jerseys) at SportsK.com...They'll probably cut you a deal on the jerseys themselves, or possibly on the shipping.


#2021445 Corey Perry

Posted by F.Michael on 01 August 2010 - 11:55 PM

False. Williams played for the Wings, we all hated him. Leino played for the Wings, we all hated him (except for me). Lebda played for the Wings, we all hated him. What makes you think just because they play for the Wings, our opinions of the player suddenly change?

Perry has talent, and is very good at what he does...I dunno if you can say that about the 3 guys you've compared him to.

IMHO many here would eventually like him...I know I would.


#2021440 NHL Center Ice

Posted by F.Michael on 01 August 2010 - 11:41 PM

I considered getting the package last year but seeing as I only care about/have enough time to be watching Red Wings games anyway, I'm not going to waste close to $200 to catch a few more games out of the year. Maybe someday though.


If I lived in the greater Detroit area I too wouldn't spend the extra $$$...You guys also get the CBC HNIC too...I'm envious.


#2020967 ran into abdelkader last night

Sometimes during GDTs when I crucify a player, I actually feel really bad afterward thinking that, rare the chance may be, the player could see it and get bummed out. I know it sounds stupid, but it's why I lightened up a bit on players like Lebda from time to time. They're still human and all that and who am I to bash their hockey skill (or my perception of their lack thereof)? Does that make sense? :P

And I want to send O'Halloran a Holmstrom jersey. :lol:

FYI - Lebda is in Toronto - so bash away :hehe:

;)


#2020351 Pick Your Favorite Wings' Title

Posted by F.Michael on 29 July 2010 - 09:23 AM

Nothing compares to our 1997 Cup winning roster; skill, and muscle :thumbup:



Well - our 1998 Cup team was great as well :)


#2020033 Are we becoming Lightning fans?

Posted by F.Michael on 28 July 2010 - 10:24 AM

Me a Lightning fan?

Hell no!

No. I'm a Red Wings fan. I wish Steve well, but that's it.

My thoughts exactly.


#2014461 something that would never happen in Detroit

Posted by F.Michael on 13 July 2010 - 11:54 AM

Yeah, they would never hold a s***ty show like that at the Joe.

Kid Rock?.....That you?


#2013033 The Latest On Detroit's #6 Defensemen

Posted by F.Michael on 09 July 2010 - 10:59 AM

Yeah - he's getting better, but so far he's not a .5 ppg guy, and he's still a minus player (that is if that stat is important/relevant)...Improvement - yes; is he an NHL calibre Dman right now - dunno about that, and some might question if he'll ever be.

#2012383 Jard Boll

Lilja can own whomever he wants.

If he wanted to, he could come to your house and own you. :P Look what happened to this poor europuss who dared challenge him.

Lucky the ref/linesmen were there to break things up quickly...A few more seconds, and Lilja would've unzipped his fly, and given that poor "Europuss" a good buggering.


#2012275 Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

Posted by F.Michael on 07 July 2010 - 08:36 PM

never understood the hatred here for lebda. a solid d-man with speed. obviously 1.45M would've been too steep for the wings so good for him getting that deal, but you guys are s***ting on him like he was a scrub. am i the only one that actually liked this guy (a little)?

Agreed.

I've always felt he was a respectable 5/6 Dman on this team, he paired quite well with Lilja, and IMO was better than Meech...Is Burke looking to replace Ian White's speed on the blueline?

Now with that said - Burke probably could've gotten him for $1 million per season.

His speed was the only thing he had going for him. Fortunately the speed of his game didn't coincide with the rest of the guys on the ice at the time. He was poor at best with two thirds of his game.

I don't hate him. Good for him getting over paid and putting himself under the microscope there in Toronto. He will probably will play decent now. Typical of past Wings that have moved on.

I recall a few ex-Leaf Dmen help our beloved Red Wings to a few Cups :lol:


#2011170 Winged wheel is everywhere

Posted by F.Michael on 06 July 2010 - 01:20 PM

w00t, I assume you're in the military. One thing I hate about the military is the severe shortage of hockey fans, versus being back home in say....Detroit. Usually when I do find hockey fans in the army, they're Pittsburgh or Washington "fans", and I end up always having to teach them what off sides and icing are when I challenge them to games of NHL 2010.

Im headed to Afghanistan here shortly (Literally 2 days), but when I went to Iraq I brought my Wings jersey, and I'll be doing the same this time around. Can't really wear it downrange, but I can sport it all the way home when I go on leave :)

Thanks for your service, and be safe over there :thumbup:
