#2208139 9/19 NHL Pre-Season GDT

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 September 2011 - 02:35 PM

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.

#2207306 Jonathan Toews Bodychecks a Child

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


#2207302 Jonathan Toews Bodychecks a Child

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.


#2206824 Best Playoff Series of the Last 15 Years

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 September 2011 - 10:34 PM

Maybe this doesn't make me a "die hard" fan but I'm not as much of a "competitive series" sort of guy like some of you guys on here. I voted for the Flyers series with no hesitation. I would much, much rather watch the Wings dominate a supposedly superior opponent. Especially since, at that time, the Flyers were supposed to run over the Red Wings. It was awesome to watch the Wings outsmart and outwill the Flyers in four games.


I'd much rather watch dominance as well.

However, those series aren't as memorable as the competitive ones which have lots of ups and downs.


BTW, if we beat San Jose last year in game 7, I have no doubt most people would have voted for that. It's a shame.


#2206786 Best Playoff Series of the Last 15 Years

What about our win against Columbus in 2009?

That was epic. :hehe:


#2206782 Best Playoff Series of the Last 15 Years

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 September 2011 - 07:57 PM

Easily the Colorado series in 2002. I've never been so nervous for any games, including Cup Final games. Seven straight nerve wracking games. I knew we had to win that series to save face, after losing to them in 1999 and 2000.

The other choices were big wins for Detroit, but two of them were sweeps and not all that competitive. The St. Louis series was great, but the Colorado one was just better, minus the game 7 blowout. The game 7 against St. Louis was as good a game as I've ever seen.


#2206257 Top 3 Players in Each Team's History

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 September 2011 - 02:58 PM

What a great idea for a thread! I can tell the OP is really knowledgeable about hockey history. I agree with pretty much the whole list.



Meh, I guess no one wants to discuss NHL history on a holiday. :D


#2206176 Top 3 Players in Each Team's History

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 September 2011 - 03:57 PM

Just thought we'd have a fun offseason thread with not much going on right now. I'm looking at many factors when compiling this list, such as: longevity, level of play, stats relative to the era, individual accolades and playoff numbers. I narrowed it down to three players because I thought that would generate the most debate and not get too complicated. At the end of the day (like everything else) this is still highly subjective, but I honestly tried to be as objective as possible.

#2205897 Winnipeg Jets' new jerseys for 2011-2012?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 September 2011 - 06:28 PM

Old logo and jersey were 10 times better, but I don't think they're allowed to use it.
