#2208492 Mike Modano announces retirement

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 September 2011 - 05:42 PM

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?

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.

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


#2207306 Jonathan Toews Bodychecks a Child

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.


#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

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.
