looks like the ladies like Lindsay Soto and Charissa Thompson could be gone


F**k the ex players.

What the hell do they know about hockey that could be so interesting? Nobody needs their insight.

Besides, NBC sucks at covering hockey. This probably means they won't start airing games until January. :hehe:


#2110612 Team Defence

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 February 2011 - 07:05 PM

Team is too lazy to block shots. They're last in the league every year in that category.

Also, because the defense is small and soft around the boards, it's easy to forecheck the Wings and cause turnovers.

#2109695 Shades of Fedorov?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 February 2011 - 09:24 PM

So Yzerman thanks Fedorov for carrying the team in the playoffs...and you say he's getting too much credit. I'll take Yzerman's admiration, over your bias, any day of the week.



Hey now, I tried connecting the two!!!


You're a big hypocrite if you're calling me biased on this topic. I'm actually trying to be objective.

If you think he carried the team, than you're giving him too much credit. The 2003 Ducks with Giguere are an example of a player carrying that team. Fedorov didn't carry the 2002 Wings. No one player carried that team. He wasn't even our best player in the playoffs, which is why he didn't win the Smythe.


#2109347 2/2 GDT: Franzen 5 + Red Wings 2 (7) at Senators (5)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 February 2011 - 12:29 AM

Great game Franz! Hopefully that moron who wrote that article saying we need to get a goon, and that Franzen is soft, is eating some crow.

Why was Neil on the ice with less than a minute? I think Coaches should be fined for sending out their no talent idiots in close games. It's a safety issue for opposing players, also it makes teams that are about to lose look like sore losers. There's no need for goons to be on the ice at that moment in a game.


First off, I wish we had a "no talent goon" (as you call him) like Neil. Guy is more than just a fighter.

Secondly, teams have been putting guys like him on the ice in those situations for ages. We're the only team that doesn't do that, because we don't have anyone like him on the team.

Nothing unusual with him being on the ice there. I see no problem with it. He didn't exactly grab one of our euros and start pounding away.

They used to call them all the time, but now they don't even have the matching minors anymore.

Diving is promoted in order for there to be more powerplays, hence more goals. Apparently, the casual idiot sports fan in America likes seeing goals.

That is so sad... I'm glad you'll never be the Red Wings' GM. But please, be anyone elses.


Awww...I'm so sorry you don't agree.

Obviously, other people on this site have a chance to be Wings GM, but I don't. Or maybe my chances were completely ruined with my post. Guess I'll just have to live with that.


#2108122 Top 5 Movies You Turned Off/Walked Out Of

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 February 2011 - 07:46 PM

How is it a good movie? Oceans Eleven is a much better crime movie


:lol:

Ocean's Eleven is not a serious crime movie. It's just a stupid comedy about pretty boys sitting around a hotel room and getting their nails done, while discussing some unbelievable caper.

Reservoir Dogs was more of a crime film, about hardened criminals following a ruthless criminal code, and willing to do anything to get away from being captured. It's movies like Reservoir Dogs, Le Cercle Rouge, The Usual Suspects, etc. why I'll never take a movie like Ocean's Eleven seriously as anything more than just a silly comedic caper.


#2107282 NHLPA/CBC Player Poll Results

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 January 2011 - 02:03 PM

The people in favor of the instigator rule are either non-fighters, or pests who are afraid of being beaten the hell up. Makes sense.

Surprised about Crosby being a great role model and everyone wanting to play for Dan Bylsma. Also, I think it's interesting how Washington and Boudreau have this soft and easy reputation around the league.

Yah, but you're naturally high and mighty and like to rain on people's parades.


No, I'm being honest.

I don't like Will Ferrell.


#2107112 Skills Competiton

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 January 2011 - 08:47 PM

God these new skills competitions suck. Its painful to watch.
LETS DO YOUTH HOCKEY DRILLS!!!!....lame
Do they still only skate half the distance of the rink in the Speed comp?


Actually, this last skills event was interesting.

Passing into that small net is a good idea, because we always see perfect saucer passes in the game, but never in a skills contest. Same thing with shooting pucks from bad angles.

However, the intermission they had stalled things greatly. No reason to have an intermission. These guys aren't tired from doing this.

Also, they should have a hardest punch contest just for enforcers. :D Like Ivan Drago.

Women(usually older): Eww Will Ferrell
Everyone else: Will Ferrell is awesome!


I'm not an older woman, and I think Will Ferrell is the most annoying person in movies today.

It amazes me that anyone likes his shtick anymore.

#2106566 All-Star Draft Discussion

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 January 2011 - 12:24 PM

Now that I think about it, I'd just draft the team full of enforcers, and proceed to pummel the s*** out of the All Stars, in front of a horrified Raleigh crowd and a stupefied Bettman. :D

Nothing says Lidstrom is required to choose star players, right?

I would draft Stamkos first if I had a pick.
