#2378655 Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

Posted by F.Michael on 02 April 2013 - 12:32 PM

I hope Jagr goes to Boston to make the Bruins PP even more effective against the Pens and I hope Jagr gets the series winning goal against the Pens in the East final.

If there's a team that might be capable of taking out the Pens during the playoffs it just might be the Bruins, and by adding Jagr they only improved their chances.

Am I alone in thinking Jagr would be a significant improvement over Abdelkader on Datsyuk's wing?

#2377645 Crosby left the game after puck to the face

That Tocchet fight is a classic. Jaw, what jaw?

Crosby was in good spirits. Not having to wire it shut is good news for him.

I personally don't believe in karma, not in this life anyway. If it existed, somehow a guy like Lafontaine would have had more luck than he did and his name on the cup several times, because as far as players go, he is as good of a person as they come.

Sometimes s*** just happens. Like when Orpik tries to shoot the puck. If he aimed for Sid's head he'd probably put up Norris numbers.

I'm by no means a fan of the Pens, or of Sid Crosby, but truth be told I hope he makes a quick recovery, and gets back in his old form...It doesn't matter if ya like him, or not - the kid has got talent, and the league as a whole benefits much more with it's star calibre players playing the great game of hockey instead of being on IR.

If people said things in a respectable way I would not care what they thought. For instance, something like this, "He took a puck to the face, that sucks for him, but benefits the rest of the league." would not bother me so much. When someone puts, "Crosby is injured HAHAHAHA" that is childish and I am not tolerant of it



I'll be the 1st to admit that my posts here at LGW can come across as immature/childish at times, but I for one don't wish to see quality players miss any games due to injury.

Probably one of those Rick Tocchet do dads when he gets back.



I remember Tocchet throwing down with Hatcher with his jaw still busted...He's 1 tuff paisan!

you have realize that all you redmond/murphy lovers are super homer fans. I mean you all frequent red wings message boards. I honestly could care less about their stupid 'back in my day' stories, the rediculous homerisms. The lack of objectivism, both LOVE fighting, the hatred of all penalties that meant to protect players (even when 10% of the NHL is injured). It'd be nice to have someone on the telecast with an opposite opinion, a little bit of devils advocate.


I never disliked either of them, but they are both not great broadcasters. FSD probably thought it would be better to keep one rambling former player, and then try to get someone more professional, someone with opposing opinions. Clearly redmond is the better of two.


I watch a lot of tsn, sportsnet and CBC. And all those telecasts blow what FSD throws out there.

So you think CBC/TSN/Sportsnet is better than FSD - that's just fine.


I watch FSD because I am a Detroit Red Wing homer, and proud of it.

I say we pool our $$$ together, and send Sid a gift basket of caramel apples.

#2374616 Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

Posted by F.Michael on 27 March 2013 - 12:18 PM

I dont see how that could ever work.



Iginla is one of the best players to ever wear the flamed C on their chest, so I am sure they would welcome him back. Anyway, Wings aren't on his list so maybe time to close this thread now?

Din758 take a look at Grimey's post...Pretty much sums it all up.

Him and redmond both suck, itd be nice to have a smart hockey person in the both


Are you that one person in the world that doesn't like Mickey Redmond? Is your hell a cold, lonely one?


#2374284 I hate to admit this but....

Posted by F.Michael on 26 March 2013 - 10:00 AM

Ticked because they get an AHL caliber defenseman and we dont?



Right now this guy's a stud at the NCAA level...Last time I checked the NHL is light years away in terms of talent/maturity.

#2373783 Most Popular NHL Teams in Sweden

Posted by F.Michael on 25 March 2013 - 03:34 PM

Back in the 90's, and up until the early 2000's the Wings were popular with Russian folks courtesy of our "Russian 5"...


These past several years it's been our Swedes...


I can't wait for our "Canadian" movement to begin; scoring goals, and punching faces!!!

#2373547 Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

Posted by F.Michael on 24 March 2013 - 11:44 PM

I don't want an expensive rental.  I'll take a cheaper rental, but not one that's likely not going to say with your team and who will cost a boat load.  If we're in the market for an expensive star winger I'd chase Gaborik before Iginla.  At least he's under contract for another year.


Also, Iginla seriously loves Calgary, as does his family by all accounts.  Wouldn't surprise me a bit if he was traded, Calgary got a king's ransom for him, and he returned there in the off season. 


No thanks. 



What's the point of giving up a ton for the guy if all he'll do is re-sign with Calgary later this summer?

I think the next step is to put Richard Bernstein in Murph's old spot between the benches.

OK - politically incorrect, or in general poor taste on my behalf...


I see what you did there.

Belle Tire!!!! God the FSD Corporate stuff is absolute crap. I don't know all of you put up with the Bernstein commercials every 5 minutes

Personally I despise the Bernstein commercials - even worse when Mickey is in them :confused:


Wonder how much $$$ FSD gets from that law firm.....

#2372598 Interesting stat for fight fans

Ahhh.....Memories of Red Wings past.

This is absurd! Who didn't love Murphy, goofy as he was. This is very sad. As Nev said, you blame ratings for a hockey game on the Pierre McGuire of your local broadcast team? "Damn, Larry is on again, can't watch my Wings tonight"... Gimme a break!

LGW should prepare a petition, or at least a thank you/support card.

I think he was entertaining. Not exactly the brightest or best, but loveable goof. What more do you want?

I agree concerning a petition, or an "e-card" for Murph...


I've always liked him; the guy's a multi-Cup winning Dman; a hockey HOF member; he's rather funny - especially when paired with John Keating...


It really boggles my mind as to whom FSD will replace him with.
