#2431335 It's time - to predict 2014 Team USA

Posted by Swayze on 24 July 2013 - 12:38 AM

For some reason, I see Schneider tearing it up in the regular season and eventually getting the nod for the 3rd spot, with Quick and Howard as 1 and 2, respectively. Miller was great in 2010, but just isn't happy in Buffalo and his play shows it IMO.




#2329889 New League?

Posted by Swayze on 24 September 2012 - 01:33 PM

Aside from the world wide league idea, this all just reminds me of the XFL.


#2329876 KHL/Overseas Games

Posted by Swayze on 24 September 2012 - 11:58 AM

Datsyuk just soccer headed the puck in off his own rebound for a goal in his first game for CSKA

Absolutely amazing


It's 1-0 in 2nd intermission, Radulov's brother got the only goal.

I really hope they get in the Northwest division, Samuelsson will have a nice target to aim for.


#2197947 Seating Question

Center Ice would be the better seats, for sure.

14 the last 3 weeks in a row, interesting.


#2055532 Mattias Ritola scores first NHL goal

Posted by Swayze on 31 October 2010 - 12:57 AM

Hm...not so sure about that. Modano had a much bigger upside than Ritola. Even Williams scored a goal once in a while, we just have to wait for Modano to get going.


Corrected that for ya, unless you meant 10 years ago.

Give me one game in a Wings uniform where he earned a spot on this team.

Just one will do.


The game where he got the assist was great for him, where he dangle the Blue Jacket's players to hit each other, then passed it and in it went. There's your one.


Name a play in which Modano fired the puck on net instead of pass it, other than his goal. All his shots, when he does, have been very weak.


#2049274 3 vs 3

Gaborik-Prospal-Staal



so it'll be 3 on 1 then? :lol:


#2027756 Red Wings app playlists

Posted by Swayze on 20 August 2010 - 02:15 PM

that sounds like the worst app ever.

you know what would be a great app? a dynamic wallpaper app that would update a schedule calendar similar to the ones posted to this site in the size of a single-screen android wallpaper. anything like that exist?


Yes, it's called Photoshop.

#2024209 Red Wings might opt to keep Ritola at the expense of Miller

Posted by Swayze on 09 August 2010 - 08:50 AM

...and this is EXACTLY why I didn't want Modano here.


#2021866 Mike Modano signs with Detroit

Posted by Swayze on 03 August 2010 - 02:57 AM

As long as we don't lose Ritola over this AND it's a 1-year deal, I guess i'll be okay about it. He better either hit or hella-backcheck though, and I know he doesn't hit.


#2017926 Wings should sign Paul Kariya

Posted by Swayze on 22 July 2010 - 02:16 AM

I'd rather have Kariya than Modano, but he'd want more money too.


#2014005 Osgood may retire following this season

Posted by Swayze on 12 July 2010 - 11:57 AM

Regardless of how McCollum does this year (I hope great), we should get a 1-year veteran next year that can keep Jimmy to around 60-65 games (hopefully), and then the next year bring Thomas up.

Both my opinion and my prediction.


#2005918 Jimmy Nill's Annual Bonus Picks Announced

Posted by Swayze on 28 June 2010 - 01:01 AM

Umm in a sense yes it is taking one for the team. He runs the other teams goalie, knows he's going to get beat up for doing so but also raise his teams chances at knocking their goalie off his game and scoring on him more.

Archibald hitting that goalie like that has absolutely no effect on the dressing room except maybe a positive one because after something like that and a brawl everyone is a little pumped up.

As for people with mean streaks ending up like Avery.. Avery has hardly made any really dirty plays on the ice and plays the game hard. Its what he does off the ice that makes him a douchebag. For every player with a mean streak who is a locker room poison, I can probably name you 2 skilled guys who are bad in the dressing room.

Overall, it doesn't matter that you think he is dirty or anything because the wings clearly hope he can add this aggression to our organization. Holland wants to add him so they must like his style of play.


Did you not even pay attention to the video? There was like 45 seconds left in the 3rd period, so what does Archibald gain by doing that? He was just raged and lost his temper, plain and simple. And I guess you don't know that the Colts ended up getting swept as well, so there goes that "positive effect" in the dressing room. Re-read my 2nd post. I said IF he does get to Grand Rapids, maybe he'll have an attitude change, but if he doesn't and brings that kind of trash to the table then he'll never be a Wing.
