#2231791 Red Wings recall forward Chris Conner from Grand Rapids

Wrong again.


Naturally.


#2231743 Red Wings recall forward Chris Conner from Grand Rapids

No reason to play him unless it's on the top 2 lines, with skilled teammates.

With his size, it'll be pointless playing him on the 3rd and 4th lines. You can only have so many undersized forwards trying to be checkers. Helm, Hudler and now possibly Conner.

Detroit vs. San Jose.


#2231662 Ducks Fire Carlyle

I always liked Carlyle.

He played enforcers and he looked like "The Penguin" :hehe:


#2231354 11/30 GDT : Lightning 2 at Red Wings 4

I wish it was recorded what Bertuzzi said to get the penalty. Those two consecutive PP's really let Tampa back into this game.


Bertuzzi not only looks like Lurch, but he's just as stupid.

His untimely penalties at his age are just inexcusable.

Total bonehead.


#2231144 Best Goal Ever

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 November 2011 - 03:24 PM

As much as my jaw dropped when I saw that goal at the time, the final replay they show from behind the goalie shows just how sick that shot was.

Anyone that plays hockey knows how impossible that shot is.



Nothing is impossible in hockey.

#2230979 Wings are soft as hell.

Last year's Bruins don't count?


They sure do.

And you can also count this year's Pens.

Lots of tough teams win the Cup nowadays.


#2230872 What's up with Zetterberg?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 November 2011 - 02:39 PM

In 2008, when Aaron Downey was a Wing, Zetterberg scored 92 points in 75 games.

Since then, his goal scoring has gone down drastically. This year, he's scored only 13 points in 22 games.


Coincidence?

#2230710 Acquiring a top six forward

why would either of those teams trade away their captains


Because who wouldn't want Filpulla/Hudler and Ericsson on their team?

Those guys are proven champions who played for the Red Wings.

You don't remember the "I have to play better" speech from 1997?

That was local legend for a bit after they won it that year.


If only Hossa gave such a speech in 2009

According to the GDT, this game starts in 5 minutes. <_<


#2230043 11/25 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 2 (SO)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 November 2011 - 02:14 PM

Would be nice to have a guy like Thornton on your 4th line, great skater, great forechecker, great fighter, great teammate, right-handed shot...


We have Drew Miller, though.


#2230030 11/25 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 2 (SO)

Whine, doubt, etc. Have fun with that.



When the Wings play a team and lose because that team's goaltender was awesome, you whine about how the Wings aren't good enough. When the Wings play a team and win because their own goaltender was awesome, you whine about how the Wings aren't good enough.


Crymson, I'm unhappy that we've only won 4 Cups in 12 years.

I want more.

I wouldn't mind if Pavel was given the captaincy.

He seems to be bringing it every game, which is the mark of a captain and leader. I haven't seen that from Zetterberg this season. Too many off games.

The fact that he speaks better English than Pavel is not as important as his play every night.
