#2214829 10/13 GDT: Canucks 0 at Red Wings 2

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 October 2011 - 09:09 PM

After a clean check?


Should I care?

He's targeting one of our stars, and went after Hudler and Homer earlier in the game after a whistle. No telling what he'd do next.

Ericsson needs to deter him with his fists.

Is it too much to ask Ericsson to grab Ballard and pound him into the ice?


#2214794 Redwings concession for moving east

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 October 2011 - 08:57 PM

Is handpicking our own refs for each game part of the concession?

:D

Also, the league must cut down on Holmstrom goalie interference calls. Only then will we stay west.

That was the coolest thing Abdelkader has ever done in his life!

#2214243 NHL Marketing

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 October 2011 - 10:02 PM

I could be wrong but aren't Bettman and Stern (NBA's comish) really good friends, that would be a pretty classless move.


Well, the NBA is a classless league, so it's all good.


#2214240 NHL Marketing

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 October 2011 - 09:56 PM

Yeah, the league has done a good job of marketing only two people.

Crosby and Ovechkin.


They seem totally disinterested in shoving any other athletes down anybody else's throats. But that's what marketing is and that's what other leagues have done. The league needs to promote other players.


#2214148 Ten Years

I said "on the ice". You can't have 10 skaters on the ice at one time.


Unless you're the Pens in the 2009 Finals.


#2214101 Central Division

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 October 2011 - 12:17 PM

So no one is sold on Columbus getting Jeff Carter and Wisniewski to go along with Rick Nash and an ever developing Mason in net? :unsure:

I'm not either.


#2214100 Ten Years

Considering we had at any one time, 6 HOF'ers on the ice, winning the Stanley Cup that season was a foregone conclusion. It was pretty anti-climactic, really. Not that it wasn't exciting, it's always exciting to win, just that it didn't have the same feeling that '97 did.


Try ten Hall of Famers total.

That was truly a memorable year. It was my first year in college, and I was probably a more obsessed Wings fan then than I am now. I guess when I was younger I didn't have as many worries in the world, and cheering for the Wings seemed to be one of the biggest things in my life then.

I also remember being extremely excited about the moves we made in the offseason. Only team that really scared were were the Avs. I knew we'd have to go through them eventually.

The playoffs was truly a stressful time, especially after each loss. I don't get as devastated now as I did then. You guys are lucky I didn't post on LGW in those days. :P


#2213903 Bouchard suspended 2 games

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 October 2011 - 11:51 AM

Is there going to be some prize given at the end of the season to the dozen or so guys that don't get suspended this year?

This should have been a double minor, but not a suspension.


#2213778 How long before headshots are embellished by garbage players?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 09 October 2011 - 04:08 PM

Embellishment has been a part of hockey a long time now. I hate it too.

This won't affect suspensions, however, since replays will show that it was embellished and no punishment will be necessary.


#2213777 Season-Long Lines Thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 09 October 2011 - 04:05 PM

I'm pretty sure McGrattan made the Ducks roster :thumbup: Hopefully he'll see some time on the 4th line this year.


For some reason, he was a free agent when I acquired him, though. ;)

I'm still leaving that spot open for a pure goon on any Wings line I put together in this season long thread.

Kindl > Ericsson.


Is that a big accomplishment?


#2213273 10/7 GDT:Senators 3 at Red Wings 5

Bertuzzi just needs to remind Phillips that he once paralyzed a guy.

That'll deter any scrum from happening.
