#2334075 An "All-Provincial" Team From Each Province

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 November 2012 - 10:05 PM

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

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


#2333004 Red Wings Off Season: I Give Them an A

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 October 2012 - 08:35 PM

No reason to think this team comes out of the first round, if there's a season.

They've regressed the last several years and the offseason hardly improved the roster, to warrant giving them an A.


#2331921 Best pure goal scorer for the Wings

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 October 2012 - 11:36 AM

None of those players are pure goal scorers, as the stats show.

Lebda sucks. Could skate really fast, though.


#2330450 Strangest Moments in NHL History

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 October 2012 - 07:37 PM

Every time Mark Mowers stepped on the ice, it was a strange moment.


#2330285 Strangest Moments in NHL History

How about Tie Domi fighting that drunken fan in the penalty box?

Or how about the time Gilles Gratton (the weirdest guy in hockey history) first unveiled his tiger mask.


#2329920 Datsyuk scores a goal off his head

Maybe Zenit can sign him to some monstrous contract.


#2329699 Report: NHL may cancel Winter Classic by November if no CBA deal

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 September 2012 - 10:32 AM

I blame everyone associated with the NHL for this debacle. Part of me wishes the league would fold, since they're stupid enough to have 2 lockouts within one decade.


#2329577 The NHL's 50 Greatest Non-North American Players

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 September 2012 - 10:22 AM

Strange rankings.

Reminded me of the greatest ever imdb film list, which has Lord of the Rings ranked above Goodfellas and Casablanca.


#2329321 Greatest Red Wing Alum of all time

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 September 2012 - 03:59 PM

Fans will obviously vote for Yzerman, because the twitter people are too young to remember Gordie Howe or what he did for the franchise and the NHL in general.


#2328593 Report: Wings close to signing Carlo Colaiacovo

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 September 2012 - 03:27 PM

If we're lucky, he might be the next Jason Woolley.


#2328034 Bruins sign Marchand to four year contract extension.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 September 2012 - 10:58 AM

Verbeek scored 500 goals in his career. You guys are giving Marchand way too much credit comparing him to Verbeek.

As I've said before, Marchand could only exist on a team like Boston. If he played for the Wings, he'd get his ass kicked by opposing teams, with no one to protect him.


#2327824 Russia/Canada Revisit the Summit Series

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 September 2012 - 08:20 PM

If the refs called the series fair, Canada wouldn't have had to rely on the heroic goal from Paul Henderson to win. They likely would have won the series 6-2. Also, if all the NHLers that didn't show up would have played in the series against "the best the Russians had to offer" they would have won more convincingly. Only 1 name needed to end the Kharlamov debate....Bobby Orr.


Bobby Hull would have also made a difference.

But Canada would have had a tough time against the Soviets either way. Their team was together all year, while Canada's team needed time to gel together.
