#2271370 Crosby

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 March 2012 - 10:32 AM

Easily the best offensive player in the league.

A few years ago, Ovechkin and Malkin could compete with him for an Art Ross trophy, but a healthy Crosby would win the Art Ross easily the last two years.

His work ethic and ability to read plays put him over the top.

He can hold his own easily on defense, and has been getting better.

Honestly, how long are people going to parrot that nonsense until they realize it isn't 2008 anymore?


Doesn't everyone on LGW think it's still 2008?

s***, I bet there's still posters here who think Zetterberg is better than Crosby.


#2271369 Do the Pens Have the Cup Locked Up?

I picked Vancouver to beat Pittsburgh in the Finals before the season and I'm sticking with that.

But I can see that Final going either way.


#2270738 Call the team out

I don't understand the comparisons because there are none. The 08 team had 1st in the west locked down by the time the injury streak hit, and we had alot more offensive depth back then. That team was consistent and was top 5 in both GF and GA, right now our current team is a mess. And to make matters worse, I realize we're missing our 2 best players, but that's all were missing (I like Eaves but he's been gone so long, Ericsson is the 6th defenceman, and Kindl the 7th). In 08 we had everyone go out at the same time it seemed like, and we still held onto 1st. This year, no chance at it, we're gonna be lucky to get home ice at all unfortunately.


Yeah, I'm still waiting for an answer for all the posters who make that comparison.

All 764 of them.


#2270677 Wings getting a share of adversity

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 15 March 2012 - 09:26 PM

Congratulations Nashville, Los Angeles and Anaheim, you just beat- the Grand Rapids Griffins.

That's really all I have to say on the matter.


Zetterberg, Franzen, Filppula, Kronwall, Stuart, White, Howard, Holmstrom, Hudler.

That's the Grand Rapids Griffins? :rolleyes:


f***, the Grand Rapids Griffins should win the Calder Cup every year based on that. Best minor league team in hockey history.

What is this team's advantage over the one in 2008?

I'd like tof****** know, since that every damn poster here keeps talking about our damn losing streak in February of 2008. It's getting annoying quite honestly.

What does this team do better than the 2008 Wings team did?

Something is rotten in the state of Detroit.

MacDonald is horrible. Along with Bertuzzi Franzen and Cleary. You couldn't assemble a more lazy, terrible line from any NHL player in history from any team. This team is really hard to watch right now. Datsyuk and Lidstrom won't help our problems, either.


The "Float Line"

:hehe:

Jesus tapdancing Christ GMR, we get it... the expression "beating a dead horse" means nothing to you, does it?


Not really.

Does that come from "Crime and Punishment"?

There's a huge difference between that team and this one. That team was 30-8-3 at the midway point. They were across-the-board good. 3rd in GF/G, 1st in GA/G. Their PP was 3rd in the league and their PK was 8th. They also had 5 20 goal scorers.

This current team has had good runs for most of the season, but they aren't the machine that the '08 team was.


And that team had Downey and Lilja.

That kind of manhood is totally absent on this roster.

How come the Pens were going on win streaks with their best player out? Sometimes even with Malkin and others out as well?

It'd be nice if the other players just stepped up and played that much harder. But instead, we have a built in excuse for this next week or so. It's a little frustrating to say the least.

ANother thing... I think Cleary needs to sit... he is our worst player out there. He is constantly giving the puck away, making dumb plays and just draining energy. Think about it.. for the majority of this year whoever he has played with has not performed too well offensively. I understand that he is having knee problems and obvs that is impacting his game but I think he needs to sit.


Cleary is playing so poor, that I don't even notice him falling down anymore.

He may think about retiring in the offseason. Either way, if this continues and he does nothing the rest of the year, he shouldn't be brought back.

The Wings are falling faster than Mitt Romney right now.

At this rate, we'll be in 5th by the weekend.

Have they tried the dump and chase approach with Helm on the PP yet? Teams are just stacking the blueline against us, and none of our skilled guys can go get the puck when they're forced to dump it in.


No, but they have tried the "dump and don't chase" approach.

Well, if we finish 6th, we can play Dallas in the first round.

How many Cups have the Blues won in their illustrious 40+ year history?

This is why I've always found their fanbase annoying, much like Vancouver's. Their bragging would sound more justified if it came from a franchise that's actually accomplished something in recent memory. In their case, they've never won anything at all.

Screw the Blues and their fanbase.
