#2132092 Whats your favorite "BAD" contract right now?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 March 2011 - 05:17 PM

I would have paid Boogaard twice that amount, haters. ;)

Good to see Zetterberg not doing his usual logo hunting routine from this season.

If his aim comes back permanently, that makes the Wings a lot tougher to beat.


#2130379 Take a Drive Down Nick Lidstrom Drive

I'd love to live in a neighborhood full of rich Swedish women, whose husbands are away on the road for long stretches of time.

:hat:


#2130363 Take a Drive Down Nick Lidstrom Drive

All except Hank I think. I actually just drove past Nick's sub the other day. :P


What kind of pizza did he order?

:hehe:


#2130327 No offensive creativity

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 March 2011 - 06:23 PM

The "dump and don't chase" hockey style never works.

I know I'll get ragged for this, but this is why we needed to sign some more grinders for our 3rd and 4th lines in the offseason. To have more players who are willing to do the dirty work, instead of a lineup full of lazy floaters who are often scared to go into the scoring areas. We're just too one-dimensional and easy to play against.

I mean our 3rd line last game consisted of Hudler, Filppula and Modano. That's not a checking line or a grinding line. It's a fluffy pillow line. I just don't think we have enough sandpaper on the team to go through a tough, grinding playoff run.

So basically, I think we have lots of creativity talent wise, but sometimes we try to get too cute, instead of being more aggressive and going to the net. It's not about creativity, but will and effort.


#2130324 Lines

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 March 2011 - 06:13 PM

It's impossible to put together line combos, without worrying about who's lazy or soft. We have too many players on this team that are one or the other. Some are both.

Too many floaters in the lineup right now, hence every line would have a glaring problem. These players need to step up and actually care every game, because matching lines around isn't going to magically make them care. Has to come from within.

Who's they?


The Blues feed just named that little *** McDonald the player of the game. :lol:

What a bunch of homers.

Will Bertuzzi please paralyze that visor wearing dickhead Backes?


#2129410 3/11 GDT: Oilers 1 at Red Wings 2 (OT)

Just got back from the game.

The Wings were horrible defensively in the first. Four times the defense let a forward get behind them.
Howard let in a terrible goal. Wow.
Detroit was awful on the powerplay. Could get nothing going.
Lidstrom was the best Wing on the ice tonight. Glad he got the first star.
The Oilers didn't get much going at all tonight. Detroit was by far the better team.
Good, character win.
Jones needs to get a hair cut and f*** off already. What a scab.

Fun fact: When the refs skated on the ice for the third period, the fans rained down on them with boos (because of the disallowed Bertuzzi goal). Devorski shook his head in confusion and mouthed "why??" in response. I thought it was hillarious to see a ref so perplexed with a fan reaction.


You must have gone for a beer each of the 6 times they had a breakaway in the game.

Hence, you were a little too sauced to notice those plays. :D


#2129354 Owners back Gary Bettman with 5-year contract extension

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 March 2011 - 10:24 PM

He's worse than those leaders in the Middle East, who never leave their position.

:lol:

It's obvious that we're not ready yet to compete with a team of Edmonton's caliber.

Legace 2.0


If the Wings were willing to bench Hasek, Cujo and Osgood, why can't we bench Howard?

Just because he's younger? There's plenty of good young goalies in hockey that pop up every year. I just don't see him as a big game goalie. He folded in the playoffs last year, and it's followed him into this season.

Didn't see most of the game. Did Franzen float around as per usual?


I've nicknamed him Nessie, after the Loch Ness Monster, who appears as often as Franzen does.

Guy just doesn't know how to play a full 82 game season. Not used to it.


#2127856 Chara's hit on Pacioretty

I've hated thatf****** giraffe spotpicker since he came into the NHL.


#2126876 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 06 March 2011 - 10:47 PM

Yup. It generally happens that way.


Well, things almost always have turned out differently in the playoffs.

I know you're angry that the Wings haven't been so dominant as to erase from your mind any possibility that you may end up disappointed, but maybe you'll at least look into the past for data.


I'm not happy about the way we're playing, Crymson.
