#2252286 2/4 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Oilers 5 (SO)

I heard that Ben Eager came out of his mother's anus instead of her ******.

Just start the Superbowl already as this game is just a waste of time for my weekend and the result was pretty much decided once Jimmy got injured.


If I ever get banned from this forum, I feel better knowing someone is around who will continue my legacy.

Sidney Crosby has possessed Sam Gagner's body and found a way to get back on the ice!!!!!!!

:scared:


#2252045 How open would you be to trading Hank?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 February 2012 - 01:42 PM

Nothing this year, one of my philosophies is don't f**k with Team Chemistry when things are working even if your best players are not producing near expectations. I'd rather have a terrible Hank with another Stanly Cup than another Ovi with zero cups :)


Getting eliminated in the second round in consecutive years doesn't mean things are working. The Wings have higher expectations than that.

If you're talking about our position in the standings, that doesn't matter come playoff time. We've seen that before. The President's Trophy is s***.

I don't know about trading Zetterberg, but we do need to make some kind of move, not only because of our past playoff failures, but because our competitors will make moves themselves.


#2251500 Your All-Favorites Red Wing Team?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 February 2012 - 10:44 PM

Man...I do not remember Fetisov being better than Vladdy. The other picks you have...Holmstrom, Maltby, Draper over Hossa, Probert, and Primeau I'm assuming are just personal favorites lol.


Well, you need a balanced lineup. That checking line I listed is the best one we had.

I was 10 when Probert last played for the Wings. My memory of him is strictly through watching his fight tapes and his days in Chicago. Same with Primeau, though he wouldn't make the list anyway from what I hear about his Detroit days.

Hossa was great here (in the regular season). His choke in the playoffs omits him from the list.

Vladdy was indeed better than Fetisov in Detroit, but I guess I picked Slava because of his all time ranking. I could go either way on that.


#2251424 Rick Nash?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 February 2012 - 08:48 PM

I fear that if Columbus offered us Nash for Filppula straight up (which of course they wouldn't), many posters here on LGW wouldn't take it. Same with Iginla or Perry.

Flip is having a great year, but you can't get a franchise player without trading a good player in return. Filppula or Franzen are the only ones who fit that definition.

If you want a lot, you have to give up something good in return.

#2251173 My Dream NHL

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 February 2012 - 08:30 PM

Contract Florida, Nashville and Columbus from the league
Move Winnipeg to Quebec and move Phoenix back to Winnipeg. Somehow, it'd be more fitting.
Ban goalies from getting into a butterfly stance.
Get rid of the instigator.
Bring back pure goons who can't play hockey.
Give the original 6 teams an automatic playoff spot.
Bring back the jerseys from the early 90's. Get rid of the new Reebok s*** and the stupid stripes.
Have home teams wear white again.
Each team will play a home and home against each team.


#2250918 Future retired numbers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 31 January 2012 - 02:07 PM

#5 Lidstrom - pretty self-explanatory. Lifetime wing and the best player of his generation. Has done it all.

#20 Downey - 2008 Stanley Cup. Enough said.

#4 Red Kelly - at some point, this organization will get a clue and retire his number. Probably after Ilitch dies and new ownership takes over. Before Lidstrom, he was the best defenseman ever to play for this franchise.

#6 Larry Aurie - same as above. His number may likely be restored one day where it belongs.

#7 Norm Ullman - a great player who was one of the best centers of his era. Only, I think he wore the same number as Lindsay. Don't know how that would work.

#91 Sergei Fedorov - this is one that will probably not happen, but I wish it would. I know it's been debated to death around here. But in 25 years, who knows.

#13 and #40 - They may or may not get retired, depending on how much more they accomplish in their careers.

How does the potential of getting Moen (perhaps) and Morrow (yes please) turn into an enforcer/fighting thread?

I think goon and pansy alike could appreciate a Brendan Morrow, or even a Travis Moen being on the Red Wings.


Who are you calling a pansy?

Everything Abdelkader can provide? Abdelkader is a much better skater, much better offensive skills(althought Abdelkader has struggled offensive since making the switch to center but is still better than Moen) and is much younger has better F/O Percentage than 36% for Moen last year compared to Abdelkader 52%, and 40% this year to Abdelkader's 51%. Hell Moen doesn't really even take faceoffs for Montreal anymore(only 12 this year), Abdelkader has 97 hits compared to Moen's 73 and Moen gets about 4:00 Minutes more a game.

I like Moen he's a solid player, but he's not better than Abdelkader just because he has a crappy talent at punching people, that's for boxing not hockey.


Who's your favorite figure skater? I've always wanted to know.

#2250505 The SuperSkills competition is an embarrassment

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 January 2012 - 10:21 PM

I didn't like how they broke up the fastest skater either. Terrible. How can you classify that as a fastest skater? Is the fastest runner in track asked to run tires like in boot camp? Give me a break.

The fastest skater event should be exactly like they had it before. It should be a full out lap or even 2 laps...tonight the event was too choppy. Players didn't even have enough room to get to full speed.


Especially when goalies are doing the fastest skater. Then you know it's a joke.


#2250458 Bettman: 2013 ASG in Columbus

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 January 2012 - 01:33 PM

The good news is there aren't enough Blue Jackets fans to stuff the ballots and vote 4 or 5 of their players into the game.


#2250456 Calgary trades Brendan Morrison to the Hawks

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 January 2012 - 01:32 PM

The Hawks will be our biggest competitor during the trade deadline. Another original 6 team, with a younger core and a great future in terms of Cup contention.

Holland will have to be brash to outwit their GM.


#2250369 Who Could be Dealt at the Deadline?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 27 January 2012 - 11:00 PM

Unless Holland gets an offer he simply can't rightfully refuse, I don't see him shipping out Filppula.
