#2530819 NHL Trivia: Players locked out in both 1994 and 2004

If you can spell Nieuwendyk or Ciccarelli correctly, you can do anything in this world.  




#2530509 NHL Trivia: 2000+ PIM Club

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 July 2014 - 10:00 PM

Some of the quizzes were real brain-scratchers. I was good with players back to the early 80's, but before that it's foggy. It helps on those quizzes to remember how awesome Mike Bossy, Montreal Canadiens, Rocket Richard, etc... were as they are answers on most of the all-time lists. Use it as cliff-notes if you need ;)

 

Yeah, for some of those quizzes, I love it when I type Gretzky's name in, and like 10 boxes get filled in automatically. :lol:




#2530292 John Gibson's Pac Man mask for 2014

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 July 2014 - 06:56 PM

Meh.

 

If I was Ducks goalie, I'd have pictures of all the players from the Disney movie.  And of course, Emilio Estevez.  




#2530182 Who is this player

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 July 2014 - 09:59 PM

Pierre Turgeon?

 

No.

 

Although, I have no idea who it is.  Could be a fun new game on LGW?




#2529768 Favorite Ken Holland Catchphrase / Quote

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 July 2014 - 01:32 PM

These may not all be exact quotes, but you get the gist of what they're about.  We've heard them on LGW a million times and made jokes about them.  I was just wondering what your favorite is?  

 

I'll begin with my favorite.  "We like our team"




#2529217 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 July 2014 - 10:00 PM

 

No. He's going to score 65 goals in training camp. And then he's going to break Selanne's rookie scoring record.

 

I need something to believe in. I need hope.

I should've listened to you, GMR. I should've listened. I've gone back and forth between love and hate for this guy, but now I straight-up hate him. It sounds childish, cuz it's just a game/sport. But, s***, it's how I feel. I literally hate the guy. It's generally very hard to get me truly hate anyone. But this guy...f*** him.

 

I don't  hate the guy.  I just think people overrated him for years.

 

He inherited a great team and was surrounded by smart people.  When the money ran out, he still had the brains around him in good coaching and terrific scouts.  Plus he had Jim Nill.  Now most of the brains are gone.  Other teams are scouting in places the Wings used to scout in.  We're left with a GM who has immunity at his job, and an owner who's basically as lucid as a vegetable.  

 

Holland will leave this job when Holland wants to leave this job.  No one will make him.

As I said. We're the new Islanders. 

 

Except they have a young superstar and lots of enforcers. 

 

We have no reason for fans to attend games.  A boring team full of small players who don't fight and finish middle of the pack.  




#2528455 Wings sign Kevin Porter to 1-year, 2-way contract

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 July 2014 - 03:04 PM

How many people here could pick this guy out of a police lineup?

 

Seems like Holland is making a move for the sake of making a move.

If Dan Cleary comes back next season, he should automatically be given the Masterton Trophy for exhibiting "a high degree the qualities of perseverance, sportsmanship, and dedication to hockey".

Maybe we're going for McDavid or Eichel.

 

If Holland traded for McGrattan right now, I'd immediately proclaim him the best GM in the league, and spend the next three hours vehemently defending him from all you scoundrels in this thread.

 

:hehe:

Unlike these other GM's, Holland has something called immunity.

 

Immunity at one's job makes one not have to take risks.  Holland isn't going to overpay someone (unless it's Quincey or Samuelsson).  

 

Holland knows Ilitch isn't going to do anything to him.  So does everyone else here.

Dallas is making moves, trying to improve, and players aren't refusing to sign there.

 

Tampa Bay is making moves, trying to improve, and players aren't refusing to sign there.

 

Am I sensing a theme?

 

People who know history know that Holland didn't build those late 90's Cup teams. He spent to maintain them (02) after they had been built by Bowman and his predecessors. Furthermore, Holland was lucky in 08 and 09. (See Joe Dumars for reference). Having the best defenseman in a generation (along with prime Dats and Z) can do that to an organization. He didn't build the Wings championships and he sure as hell can't build them now.

 

People shouldn't be complaining about getting fleeced in the Legwand deal. The team got fleeced in losing Yzerman and Nill.

 

As I said before, Holland is like a trust fund baby that ends up blowing all the money he was given.  He's withered this team down into mediocrity.  

 

Unfortunately, our owner is senile and is eating peanuts at Tiger games.  




#2527434 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

I hope Holland brings Luca Brasi with him to this meeting.
