#2337987 2013 BlueAdams Where Are You, Line Thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 January 2013 - 04:13 PM

Zetterberg - Datsyuk - Nyquist

Franzen - Filppula - Samuelsson

Brunnstrom - Helm - Bertuzzi

Enforcer - Abdelkader - Tootoo



Kronwall - White

Ericsson - Smith

Quincey - someone 




That's what I'd do.  Unfortunately, we're still missing a top six forward, and a top four defenseman.  Kronwall will have to have a Paul Coffey '95 kind of year.   

#2337212 Holland booed off Ford Field

Maybe the boos were due to not landing a high end D or F


Or letting Lilja go.  

#2337116 NHL submits offer to NHLPA - **Suspension Warning Post #70 & #273*

Red Wings sources: Hockey season will be salvaged, Jan. 19 start







I'm guessing Ted Lindsay 









I'm still cautiously optimistic. This is the NHL we're talking about.


I remember this cocktease from several weeks ago, and right before the 2005 season was cancelled.  I'll believe it when I see it.

There will be no bargaining session tonight. Two sides hope to get together in the morning.


It's not like every day counts here.   



#2337068 Top 20 most valuable Red Wings players since 2002

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 December 2012 - 11:21 PM

I think a lot of the rankings are up for debate except number 1.  


If we're talking about since 2002, I can't think of an argument that would put any player over Nick Lidstrom (especially considering he won 6 Norris trophies during that span). 


Not even for Downey?

#2336978 List of Divers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 December 2012 - 08:36 PM

What's the point?  Everyone knows who these people are anyway.  No secret.  


I think the league just needs to return to regularly calling diving.  They went away from it since the lockout, and it's created more divers.  

#2336776 Yakupov VS Cherry

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 December 2012 - 09:39 PM

In European hockey, what is considered "dirty" is different than what Canadians call "dirty" hockey. It's always been that way.

It's just a different style of hockey and different ideals for what's considered sportsmanlike.

#2335646 I got to meet Mike Babcock

Did you ask him if Samuelsson will play the point on the powerplay?

#2335484 [Retired] Official Lockout Thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 December 2012 - 07:32 PM

During the last lockout, there were moments when it looked like the season was saved, and then nothing happened.

I expect as much with these idiots. This league is more inept than the XFL.

#2335109 Holmstrom appreciation thread

Favorite memory is that time he screened the goalie on the powerplay, and deflected a Lidstrom shot into the net.

It was awesome!

No love for Yukon?

Give me a break.

#2333925 Yzerman vs. Sakic

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 November 2012 - 11:27 PM

Sakic was great, but he didn't have to carry a franchise in his prime like Yzerman did.

Also, he didn't have as many 50+ goal seasons as Yzerman. He was never a pure scoring machine like Stevie.

And you're not going to win this argument on some Denver poll. Not the brightest people, especially with all the weed they're going to have now. ;)

#2333400 Helm takes puck to face, has fractured cheekbone

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 November 2012 - 05:30 PM

Better to have these injuries now than in April...............I mean April 2014, when we actually have an NHL playoff again.
