#2208799 Mike Modano announces retirement

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 September 2011 - 10:58 AM

Interesting.

He wasn't better than Chris Chelios. He wasn't better than Mark Howe. He wasn't better than Frank Brimsek. He wasn't better than Pat LaFontaine. I'd probably put him fifth though, just ahead of Beezer and Barrasso. Ryan Miller is quickly moving up that list though.


His career accomplishments exceed anyone besides Chelios, imo.

His talent level is ahead of all those players for that matter.


#2208724 9/21 Exhibition GDT: Red Wings 2 at Penguins 3

After watching this game, it's painfully obvious to me that Detroit doesn't have what it takes to compete with the upper echelon teams in the sport.

And the Pens didn't even have Crosby. :o

Softf****** goal.

Put Ozzie in.

Second greatest American hockey player of all time.

And whether you people like it or not, he should have retired last season and played his whole career with one franchise. He wasn't sure that he wanted to come back, and the indecision should have been enough for him to say no.


#2208343 Maybe it's Homer that gets sent down?

This is very possibly the single most ridiculous thread I have ever read on LGW and that's some steep competition...


I've seen much worse.

Also, there was that "Trade Datsyuk" thread that I never got around to starting.

We don't really need him now that Hudler has taken UFC lessons.

Is the NHL Network done showing every game in the playoffs idiotically for 3 months?


#2207958 Tampa Bay to have no fighting policy in training camp

Fighting one another fosters "team toughness"

#2207846 Yet another lawsuit filed against Bert

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 15 September 2011 - 08:56 PM

There have been many nasty incidents in NHL history just as bad as Bertuzzi on Moore.

What made this so bad is the result. If Moore gets up from that, Bertuzzi is not nearly as hated.


#2207654 Wings have designated certain games "premium."

As if there aren't enough empty seats at the Joe.


#2207453 Should the Wings go back to two alternates?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 September 2011 - 08:40 PM

C - Lidstrom
A - Datsyuk
A - Zetterberg
A - Downey

Trevor Gillies would have probably stood over the kid and celebrated.

Kane hates old people and Toews hates children. Nice job Chicago. :thumbdown:


That kid is lucky it wasn't Kronwall, though.

Sorry guys. I was just practicing for my mid-season form. :D

Wow.

Wings are choking. 7-3 Columus


I knew it!

We're not making the playoffs this season.
