Posted by luvmnger on 05 November 2015 - 01:36 PM

i would chop it up to staying on top of players that "may" hit the market.


information is king. if holland gets the sudden call...he just hits his notebook, and replies...ummm...no.

#2624425 So this is why teams hate the wings

Posted by kipwinger on 02 September 2015 - 12:11 PM

I may be in the minority, but I actually think the recent rebuilding years 2003-2006 and 2011-Present, are far more interesting than the contending years.  There's more to think about, talk about, speculate about, and (quite frankly) ***** about.  Watching your team win the Cup is awesome, but I don't want to see it every year.  Or even be a real possibility every year.  Sometimes you have to struggle a little bit in order to work through it and know what optimism feels like. 


IMO being a fan of a super team is lazy.  And boring.  Which isn't to say that I want our team to be the Chicago Cubs of hockey.  But I don't want us to be the Yankees either.  If you choices each season are A) compete for the championship, or B) be disappointed, then you're missing out on a ton of awesome fan experiences.

Take a look at Toews beard and then take a look at Zetters beard. Does that answer the question?

Case closed

Why wouldn't Pronger be in the HOF?  He's one of the best players of his generation.  I don't see them looking the other way because of some lame salary cap loophole the idiotic NHL has created. Pronger isn't the mastermind behind the league's idiocy.  

Because you are eligible 3 years after you retire.  Pronger is not retired, therefore he is not eligible.  Not sure how they're working that out.

Ur faster than cool hand luke


Cool hand Luke was famous for his pluck.  His moxie.  He wasn't notoriously fast at anything in particular. 


Get it together man.  You're slipping.

#2613773 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 09 June 2015 - 09:49 PM

A speck. The tiniest, teeniest, speckiest of specks. The last most speck of settled dust. The clock has ticked and ticked and ticked by, and along the rumblings of grapevines entwined with staff movements and acquisitions and rumour abound, gone is the distant cry that once rang... "We stink at the moment, seriously I'd throw Cleary in there. He would be better than what's out there at the moment".
I believe I was a replier to say "Meh, I guess it couldn't hurt, anything to stop this run" so I'm no above reproach. In truth when we hit that inevitable point where maladies come out to play and our encouraging record goes down the toilet an unhealthy number of us look to Dan Cleary as someone who "will at least go and hit some people and actually really really try really hard to do things good". It's a bit like the end of A Few Good Men; Daniel Cleary's existence is grotesque and incomprehensible to us, yet there will be points in our lives, points when we never utter an audible sound, when we want him on that wall, when we need him on that wall. I'd just prefer it wasn't Cleary and was some other washed up old vet. Because seriously, any other washed up old vet is probably better than Cleary at the moment. EDIT: essentially a washed up old vet who didn't play an entire career in a style that destroyed his ability to continue a career.

You have a flair for the dramatics.
I like your posts.
They're fun.

But chea.
I would rather see him as the 14th forward, than another unproven coach though.

Oh I agree 100% way more coverage and the shots on goal gap was closed it's no like last game for certain. Mrazek should stay in nets though I believe.

Oh and I've always been a fan of the mule but I think he needs to go sorry. He has missed the past two years playoffs we lose him at least 3-4 months of the year go suck on someone else's team.



I hope you'll have more sympathy after reading this.

Le sigh. 

Like I said, Abdelkader needs to be back next game. 

....and 2008 Lidstrom/Rafalski....2002 Shanahan/Yzerman and maybe 1994 S. Federov.

Since I know everyone is going to be in gloom and doom negative mode, I'll play devils advocate and post a few bright notes...


-Wings scored late to kill Bishops shutout


-Wings didn't take a boneheaded too many men penalty, like they have made a habit of the past few weeks


-Wings are going back home to Detroit tied 1-1, instead of down 2

Posted by Lifelong Wings Fan on 23 March 2015 - 05:33 PM

Updates: I have now dedicated a page on my website to the jersey design. There's some photos I took during warm-ups from the bench, and a few others as well from during the game.




Let me know what you think!
