Maltby needs to get off the point on the powerplay.

I have 3 neggers that neg' all my posts. The Mods know who it is and I know who they are. When you suck at making arguments and get exposed in every discussion by someone, they take it out on you anyway they can i.e. neggin' people. It happens.

I would hope no one would want to neg the Tigers or our freshly signed Brunnstrom lol.


:unsure:

What did you call me?

I have to assume Bert's boos are for his Canuck/Avs ordeal. I'm not understanding why in Minny, though. I don't remember them booing him before.


He once set a school bus on fire in Minnesota.

I've never been keen on Hudler playing the point on a powerplay.

I'd put Ericsson back there. He's got a bigger shot than Hudler and they paid him a boat load of money. Let's see how he looks on the point.

Sorry...Not much of a fight if you ask me...1 guy turtles, and the other is punching the linesman's leg...Nothing to look at here folks - move along.


If we're lucky the next time he'll get a 2 min roughing pen, and our "enforcer" the pp can take it from there.


Dude, it's the biggest Wings fight victory since Lija emasculated Boll.

How can you downplay its importance? We may have to wait years to see that happen again.

The king of offensive zone penalties strikes again.

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.

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.

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.

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
