#2533195 Wings stuff on clearance at Dick's

Posted by Matt on 28 July 2014 - 03:57 PM

****'s is not a curse word filter on here is it?

 

Holy crap, it is.  Feels like I'm in the 6th grade.  

 

 

Lol, no doubt.  The last couple years, this has become one of the most overly PC and heavily censored websites I have experienced in my 15+ years of internet. 

 

Especially absurd when you consider this is a hockey website.

 

Whatever...

 

 

Relax, fellas. You're not in a police state.

 

A few years ago there was a rampant problem with overly gratuitous cursing on the forums (particularly in the GDTs, where scores of entire posts would be made up of nothing but f-bombs and such). The community was warned that if such behavior continued that a curse filter would be enabled. This curse filter is just a huge word blacklist that was loaded into the database -- it wasn't something that myself or one of the moderators simply added one by one, manually.

 

That said, the behavior continued, it grew tiresome to continually delete/edit posts that were going over the line -- and the curse filter was enabled. I hate the fact we have to have a curse filter here. It annoys me to no end. But if the community can't handle that maturely then it's here to stay.

 

"Dick" was an unfortunate victim of blacklist collateral damage. You should be happy to see your dicks have henceforth been freed.

 

Enjoy.




#2533105 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 28 July 2014 - 07:39 AM

My predictions?

 

Half the roster is injured by November and they barely scrape into the playoffs again.

We're so bad, that people would rather go to North Korea than work with the Wings.

#2532334 Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

Posted by GoWings1905 on 17 July 2014 - 01:30 PM

I like Babs a lot and this was a good interview, but I have no trust left him in whatsoever when he says "the best players will play."

 

It does sound though like Babs really wants to find a way to integrate the kids on defense sooner rather than later. Which who can blame him when his other options include Quincey, Kindl and Lashoff? 

 

Babs also said the Wings didn't hand out any bad contracts in free agency. Out on the lake when the Quincey deal happened?

That was the night Aaron Downey won us the Cup.  

 

And anyone who doesn't believe it is a cool-aid drinking hater :hehe:

#2531617 Who has been Ken Holland's worst recent free agent signing?

Posted by uk_redwing on 11 July 2014 - 03:24 PM

Dishonorable mention should also go to Cory Cross as a consideration.  16 games-2 points.  Benched and then traded.

 

He beat up Steve Ott though...

How about,

 

Cleary can play on the powerplay




#2531522 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by GoWings1905 on 11 July 2014 - 10:55 AM

$2.5 million for a player with the same point total last season as Luke Glendening, who couldn't be less of an offensive threat. Not to mention, the other areas of the game where Glendening contributes and Cleary doesn't. 

 

Cleary will make the team and play ten games -- I think that's almost a guarantee with Holland running the show and Babs saying veterans get first crack, even though Cleary already lost his job to the kids last season. 

 

Ken Holland could have done nothing this summer and it would have been better than the mess he has now created. I know I'm definitely more excited to watch Kyle Quincey and Dan Cleary over Ryan Sproul and Tomas Jurco. 




#2531407 Who is this player

Posted by F.Michael on 10 July 2014 - 10:12 PM

 

Liam Neeson played for the Wings?


 

 

I'll give it a try.  Who's this guy?

#2531142 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Euro_Twins on 10 July 2014 - 04:11 PM

I seriously think Holland is becoming my most hated person in sports.
 
Actually, he is my most hated person in sports.
 
My roomate is from Nigeria and has watched his first ever hockey games (about 10) with me last season. He laughs that Quincey and Cleary are re signed. 
 
The fact that he understands that these players shouldn't be on the team but Holland doesn't says alot.


It's all part of a bigger plan to package Quincey Cleary and andersson for stamkos....


#2530838 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 09 July 2014 - 01:36 PM

I guess Lebron has narrowed his list down to 3 teams...the Heat, the Cavs...and the Red Wings. He has top four defenseman written all over him.
