#2673923 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 April 2016 - 07:44 PM

Bring his mate Zaitsev for the D as well, could be a possibility and would improve the roster straight away. Zaitsev in for Q and Alex in for Pav. He's the only one out there that we could likely get to replace Pavs production, Stamkos maybe but can't but can't see him coming to Detroit.

 

Vassili Zaitsev?  I guess we do need a sniper, so why the hell not.  




#2673890 Possible Leak of Florida Panthers New Logo

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 April 2016 - 04:46 PM

Idiots.  

 

The best thing about their team historically are the colors and logo.  Peter Worrell is rolling over in his grave.  




#2673884 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 April 2016 - 04:00 PM

The more I think about it, I'm glad he's leaving.

 

He played at such a high level in his career, that it was hard watching him play this season.  It would be like some retired pro wrestler making a comeback and looking like dirt.  Datsyuk is leaving at the right time.  I don't want to see him look any worse than he did this season.

 

That's why watching Zetterberg and Kronwall will be even worse next season.  They'll be one year older.  




#2673882 Holland (selfishly) declined promotion

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 April 2016 - 03:57 PM

If Holland were an ancient Japanese samurai (in other words, a man with honor), he'd commit seppuku to atone for his disgrace to the Ilitch family and the fanbase.

 

Alas, those kinds of men don't exist anymore.  




#2673843 WCSF : St. Louis Blues vs. Dallas Stars

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 April 2016 - 01:27 PM

Stars won in '99.

 

Blues haven't won at all.

 

I consider the Blues a bit 'Old School' in the sense that they were part of the 1st expansion back in 1967.

 

They haven't won it all because the Gods hate them.  The Stars have never won a legitimate Cup, so they have something to prove also.  

 

 

I suggest you change your avatar to a Scott Parker Sharks avatar and root for Joe and the boys to bring a Cup to Silicon Valley.  




#2673836 ECSF : New York Islanders vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 April 2016 - 01:03 PM

I can't root for a team that has the ugliest building in hockey history to watch on TV.  I want the Islanders (or that Jeep) out of the playoffs ASAP.  




#2673717 WCQF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 April 2016 - 10:27 PM

Kenny Holland should be fired just because Red Wings fans are rooting for the Blues now.  How sad.  I won't root for them against any other team in these playoffs.




#2673580 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 April 2016 - 04:39 PM

We're so bad right now offensively, that I'd sign Ray Rice, let alone Radulov.  Impressionable youth can go become boy scouts.  My concern is not his attitude, but whether he can still be a legit top 6 forward.  Then again, we don't have many of those, so maybe it's worth a shot.  




#2673577 Ownership shows Support for Kenny Holland

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 April 2016 - 04:37 PM

If Zetterberg is our top line center next season, we're in trouble.  He has no room to talk or be angry.  His body can't do what it once did.  Nothing can change that.  

 

As for Holland, he'll never be fired.  The Ilitch family has given him immunity long ago.  




#2673274 WCQF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 April 2016 - 09:32 PM

 

I just don't see how St. Louis wins a Game 7 against Chicago. If they're going to win the series, it had to be in these next 16 minutes.

 

They're at home and the score is 0-0.  They still have more to lose and Chicago has less to win.  And St. Louis is still the better team.  Like I said, they have to man up and stop being the Blues.  

 

It needs to start now, though.  This game is not over yet.  They can't be thinking about game 7.  


 

Yeah true. Unless they face Holtby in the Finals. Jones is playing well for SJ, but the Hawks would light him up if given the chance.

 

The Sharks can light up Crawford just like they lit up a better goalie in Quick.  They're a scary team and beating LA might be the breakthrough they needed to reach the Finals.  




#2673089 M1. Washington Caps vs W2. Philadelphia Flyers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 April 2016 - 09:06 PM

This is exactly why i wanted the hawks eliminated asap, no other team in this league has a killer instinct

 

I'm just pissed that every team facing elimination is doing better than the Wings.  Embarrassing.  




#2672982 Fixing this mess....

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 April 2016 - 12:07 PM

Ladies and gentlemen your 2016-17 Edmonton Oilers. 

 

I wish we had their roster.  They just mismanage it every year.  




#2672948 WCQF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. St. Louis Blues

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 April 2016 - 10:13 AM

If the Hawks fall, I don't really care how the rest of the playoffs will go.  Yes, there are some teams/cities I want to win more than others and some teams I'll root harder for.  However, nobody else's winning would make me question the existence of a God or whether if he did exist, that he had any goodness in him whatsoever.  




#2672918 ECQF Game 5 Post-GDT: at Tampa Bay 1, Red Wings 0 (TB Wins, 4-1)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 April 2016 - 08:17 AM

Would love it if we could somehow bring in stammer and backes up front while using Tatar + to bring in vatanen.

Larkin- stamkos- Nyquist
AA- backes- mantha
Zetts- sheahan- pulk
Jurco- glendening- Abby

Also get rid of E and Howard somehow some way.

DK- vatanen
Smith- green
Kronwall- marchy

XO/Jensen/ sproul

 

LOL.  Now let's talk about what will actually happen.

 

Nyquist - Zetterberg - Abdelkader

Tatar - Richards - Larkin

AA - Sheahan - Mantha

Miller - Helm - Glendenning

 

Kronwall - Ericsson

DeKeyser - Green

Smith - Marchenko

 

Mrazek

Howard

 

Ladies and gentlemen, I give you the 2016-17 Detroit Red Wings.   :clap:

It could be worse guys.  We could be the Blues and have zero Cups and decades of choking.
