#2228373 Philadelphia Flyers Unveil Winter-Classic Jersey

Posted by Jedi on 21 November 2011 - 01:39 PM

I would find it really difficult to make a Winter Classic jersey for a team that never really changed theirs throughout history.

Exactly. Philly's jerseys have had very little change over the years, so finding a different look in the past is going to be hard to do. I'm at least glad that the rumors that it was going to be based off the old Philadelphia Quakers turned out to be incorrect...

I'm telling you though, the NHL needs to let them wear Cooperalls one last time...

#2225369 Ryan Miller's opinion on Milan Lucic

Posted by newfy on 14 November 2011 - 05:35 PM

Shanny gives Macarthur 3 games or whatever it was for his tiny little bump on Abdelkader but a guy running a goalie in the head (hands came up) doesnt even warrant a fine?


Shanny did learn from Campbell I guess eh


#2225207 Will Stuart re-sign?

Well, it's all settled then.

Let's send this post to Holland for final approval.

Just title it "Powerplay as our enforcer", otherwise it goes right to the garbage.


#2222455 F*** YOU Player X

Posted by unsaddleddonald on 03 November 2011 - 09:16 PM

F*** YOU Filppula: seriously, how many times does the coaching staff have to tell you to shoot before you actually start shooting? you may be the most frustrating player on this team because of your reluctance to use your talent. (1 shot against Calgary)

F*** YOU Hudler: see above. you're upset you keep getting scratched? do what the coaches have told you to do since you showed up in the league......SHOOT (1 shot against CGY)

F*** YOU Franzen: you're a six foot monster who plays like a 5 foot nothin little girl. you have no excuse for not getting at least 10 shots per game. (00000000 shots against CGY)

F*** YOU Bertuzzi: we aren't impressed by your video game bull crap anymore. shoot the puck or get out. (2 shots against CGY)

F*** YOU Datsyuk (but only a little): there are still times when you don't shoot and i can't figure out why. you are on par in this league with players like Ovechkin and Crosby......but they wouldn't be caught dead with only 2 shots on net in a game. (2 shots against CGY)


Abdelkader: 4 shots
Cleary: 5 shots
White: 4 shots

Some guys get it....just not the right ones.....

Big difference between showing some emotion and getting pissed off with the wings


No, there isn't. If you're not furious with this team right now, then I question whether or not you're a "real fan". Just because you think it's hip to call yourself a fan and watch wings games doesn't make you a fan. Saying "Bummer, oh well, on to the next one!" when they're 5-5-1 is the mark of someone who doesn't give a s***. Real fans give a s***.


#2221939 NHL Trade Deadline Predictions

Posted by RusDRW on 03 November 2011 - 01:24 PM

We'll get someone like Cory Cross.


#2220400 why this season will not be different...

Posted by stinky fish taco on 31 October 2011 - 06:15 AM

I love this. No other team in the league would consider 2 second round losses failures! :)

except the capitals
and the penguins
and the canucks
and the sharks
and any other team that goes into those seasons as a legitimate cup contender

#2220257 Coaching part of the problem?

Posted by Crymson on 30 October 2011 - 02:09 PM

Five wins and four losses? The coaches suck Never mind that we have two new assistants. Never mind that Babcock is one of the best in the league; the grass is guaranteed to be greener on the other side---fire him!!

Cleary hasn't been doing well so far. He's terrible! Send him off the team! Nine games with less production is unacceptable!

I am sorry to say but I have to agree with you on this one because while yes being loyal to someone like Stevie Y. or Lidstorm is good but being loyal to someone like Cleary who has been AWFUL this year come on! Common sense needs to come into play here for once in the Detroit offices.


Bwahaha. OK. So nine games of bad play means that a player is horrible and that not trading him entails excessive loyalty on the part of the front office. Thank goodness you're not a GM.


#2219817 10/28 GDT: Sharks 4 at Red Wings 2

And therein lies the rub.

The problem that I have is that it isn't hockey talk. Its a ***** fest. I am upset about the Wings not doing well. At the same time though, I point out where they were deficient and how they can improve next game. The "hockey talk" that you mention is not hockey talk. It takes more effort to actually dissect a game and look at the keys in a game. It takes less effort to yell, "Fire Babcock" or "Homer is worthless". Guess which route many of the LGW forum members take? In the end, when they do take that route, it makes those members look like a bunch of whining entitled brats.

Otherwise, I agree with your assessment on the three losses. Its too early to tell. At the same time, the score was not indicative of how the game was played. Wings dominated in faceoffs and time of possession. Shots were about even. The Wings breakout was ok and their passing was average. In essence, they got beat by one goal.

I agree that there's a relatively small percentage of people venting from a loss with things like the "Wings f-ing suck!" But honestly it's much better than it used to be, and there's plenty of hockey talk here that gets bashed and shut down just because it's not popular or it's critical of the Wings.

Even if someone proposes a radical move, like trade Cleary, hell even trade Datsyuk, that's a legitimate hockey opinion and worth discussing, no matter how much the idea of trading those guys may offend Wings fans. Demoting someone, even Zetterberg to the 4th line is hockey talk. They may be outlandish and even foolish ideas, but they're legitimate opinions.

People who are generating topics to discuss are the lifeblood of this site. They're not all going to be brilliant, but I'll take them any day over the members (who are not mods) who've made themselves judges of what is and is not acceptable to say about the Red Wings. The people here who spend most of their time shutting down the ideas of other members and mocking them for their suggestions with posts like "OMG WINGS SUCK TRADE EVERYONE!!!"

If the Wings have only lost three games but someone wants to suggest radical changes, they should be able to do so without being bombarded by all the sarcastic, ******* responses from the Thought Police here.
