#2122409 Red Wings Won't be Active at Trade Deadline

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 February 2011 - 12:42 PM

Why would we do anything?

We've won the last 3 Cups in a row. No reason to change what isn't broken in the playoffs.

Why are the Wings playing bored? Have we won the last 3 Cups in a row or something.

This boredom could lead to an early playoff exit if they aren't careful.

Well I figured we were just talking about most memorable in recent history.

What about Downey on Lappy in 2008? That was a pretty nice one, too.


That was a great one too.

I remember screaming at Lappy all night during that game. Even after the game I was furious and yelling. My neighbors must have thought I was getting raped.

I need to find the GDT of that game in the LGW archives. Probably some interesting stuff posted there. :D

Ericsson should fight more often. It gets the guys going, shows we arent complete *******, and gets him off the ice for 5 minutes! Cant go wrong :lol:


He started the fight well, but lacked that killer instinct to finish Ott off.

Cory Cross's beating of Ott still stands as the best Wings fight in recent memory. :hehe:

just checking in and saw the score ... is there any positives for tonight or are we going to have another one of those team meetings?


We actually had someone fight for a change.

Kudos to Ericsson for providing the only thing in the game that wasn't shameful from a Wings perspective.

GMR wants to see Bertuzzi paralyze the French puss Ribeiro.

When did Franzen grow some balls.........When the guy he's challenging is coming back from a broken orbital bone and is wearing a cage.


#2121460 Avery Sucks.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 February 2011 - 07:24 PM

We also seem to have a "No Fighting" and "No Hitting" policy that goes nicely with our shameful "Don't back your teammates up" policy.


Wow, I couldn't have said it better myself. :clap:

Don't understand why Wings fans would hate Avery. He plays in the East and hasn't really done anything in Detroit to be hated so much.

I'd love to have a guy like Avery on the team. He's also a much better player than anyone would care to admit.

1st in wins
28th in SV%
31st GAA

These stats, for any goalie would lead me to believe: This goalie is starting too many games, this goalie has a GREAT team in front of him, this goalie is easily replaceable due to the team in-front of him. Take the name of the player and I feel you'll come to the exact same conclusion I have.


Excellent point. Howard wouldn't be winning s*** if not for this team.

We're not winning because of him, but in spite of him and his meager stats.


#2121023 Zherdev On Waivers

Great talent and a right handed shot (which we need), but too big a risk because of his history.

Besides, he can't play goalie.

When I read quotes like this, I just shake my head. I could see if Howard had a subpar game, but he played very well tonight. Would he like to have the last one back? Of course. At the same time though, there were some stops he made that could have went in but they didn't. This was not a goaltending issue. If anything, it was a capitalization issue.

I didn't get a chance to see the entire game, but I just watched the highlights and I am going to watch the game in its entirety tomorrow. The highlights didn't show me that one goalie outplayed the other. If anything, it was one team unable to capitalize on their chances while the other one did. Dats had about 5 chances to score and couldn't bury the biscuit. Eaves had a couple good chances. The Wings have got to score on those opportunities.

Yet, they didn't. The blame game is easy to cast on one player or another. Seems that everyone except Lidstrom, Hank, or Dats are easy targets. I really should put up a freaking pie chart and start marking down who the loss gets attributed to just as a goof. During the 5 game win streak, it was a team effort. In a loss, its (insert player name here). Howard, Rafalski, Bert, etc.

I don't know, I just tire of the bulls*** in this forum at times. I have read some very good posts from true Wings fans. Then I read s*** like this and its just that....s***. These are Wings fans? I mean seriously? True Wings fans don't throw their players under a bus. Stand behind your team for a freaking change. Win as a team, lose as a team. Its that simple.

Are you trying to upstage Crymson with posts like these? Get some new material.

This is sad. <_<

Filppula and Hudler homers arguing about which player is better.

Like two *** decorators arguing about which one is tougher.

Please ask him if he foresees any Cory Cross type signings.

After scoring nearly a PPG pace over a couple months, Flip get demoted to the third line. I understand why, but this crap about Flip never having his breakout season needs to be put to rest.


Top 2 lines are playing well right now. No reason to break that up until something changes.

Bertuzzi > Fillpulla
