I'd love to beat Mike Milbury with a shoe right now.

Crawford is outplaying Howard right now.

What else is new?

#2137162 All-Time Olympic Teams?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 March 2011 - 06:39 PM

Lemieux - Gretzky - Howe
Hull - Esposito - Richard
Messier - Yzerman - Morenz
Sakic - Trottier - Lafleur

Orr - Harvey
Bourque - Robinson
Potvin - Shore

Roy
Sawchuk


Of course Crosby won't make this team. Hasn't played long enough. I also notice that all these rosters will have too few wingers as compared to centers.

#2136863 Toronto fans Fight Night at The Joe?

I hate it when those Panthers fans come and start trouble.

They're just impossible to deal with.


#2136760 3/26 GDT: Maple Leafs 2 at Red Wings 4

Go ahead and show me where I said everyone was happy that Howard got hurt. You're acting like I said everyone was happy with the injury. The only over-exaggerations are coming from you.


It was so silly and intense that 8 people felt that it deserved a +1. You're in the minority on that one bud and literally the only one to "call me out" on it. You don't control the opinions around here and you sure as hell don't control what I post. Take your own advice and step down off of your high horse.


I wouldn't put too much stock in that. It's likely that a lot more people would have negged it. There's no such button anymore, hence it looks like you made a rather popular post.

There are some posters who are happy he got injured, and there are others who frankly my dear, don't give a damn. I'm in the latter. I don't know why that upsets you that so many people don't care as much about Howard being injured, as they would be for a Datsyuk or Zetterberg injury. He's not as important to our team, because he hasn't played that well this season. Hence, no one is upset.


#2136599 Jimmy Howard injury

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 March 2011 - 10:17 PM

Wow! Really?


Wow what?

Howard has been poor this season. Osgood hasn't been spectacular, but he's certainly been no worse. He plays better when he's disrespected anyway. I'd feel better having him in the playoffs than Howard. He's proven people wrong before.


#2136594 Jimmy Howard injury

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 March 2011 - 10:08 PM

None of this would be a big deal if Ozzie wasn't hurt right now. I'd feel more confident with him starting than Howard. MacDonald has played no worse than those two, but I don't know how ready he is to be a starter going into the playoffs in Hockeytown.

However, we've seen teams go far recently with no name goalies. Just look at last year, especially with Philly, who kept rotating goalies all playoffs.

There's other players on the Wings I'd be more worried about being injured.

Aboutf****** time!

That was nice. Still skeptical about the boxing lessons, though.


#2136019 Nick Lidstrom: Plus/Minus Watch Thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 March 2011 - 11:15 PM

The line combos have all been a failure. Playing with Rafalski seems to be what he's most comfortable with.

I blame Howard for the plus/minus trouble. It is a team thing, but he's more at fault than anyone.


#2135436 3/23 GDT: Canucks 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 March 2011 - 09:26 PM

that's not a random sample size, it's from the time the wings started to play like s***

prior to that, in the first 23 games of the season:

regulation: 14 wins, 4 losses
OT: 3 wins, 1 loss
SO: 0 wins, 1 loss

these statistics are not random. the wings played great hockey in october and november and since then they have been rather mediocre. some people just can't see it or won't accept it.


Some people won't admit Howard has been subpar this year either.


#2135415 3/23 GDT: Canucks 2 at Red Wings 1

March always sucks in Detroit - except last year when it was the first time we bad a healthy team.

It is worrisome to see teams like the Canucks and Penguins continue to pile on the wins all season long despite some huge injuries. Wings better flip that proverbial switch in the playoffs.


That's because those teams work hard. The Wings are lazy and don't work hard. Very simple really.

BTW, is it possible for this team to win a game at the JLA?

I mean, I know the fans there don't show up and the arena sounds like the echo of an indoor swimming pool while watching it on TV, but this is getting pathetic.

I'm starting to wish we didn't have home ice in the first round.

Another very *** and uninspired performance.

I hate March hockey. It's like cold turkey for Wings fans. Can't wait for thef****** playoffs to begin already. Don't care where we're seeded or where we finish. Just start the playoffs this weekend please.
