#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

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

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.

I wish every movie was as "boring" as The Godfather.


#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.


#2106275 We need an Irishmen on the team....

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 27 January 2011 - 03:30 PM

Steve MacIntyre and Shane O'Brien sound like Irish names, don't they?

Just sayin.....


#2105951 Enforcer Poll

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 January 2011 - 10:03 PM

Enforcers are usually meat heads and take stupid penalties.

The best guys to have who can drop the gloves are McCarty and Lapointe type players, they only fight when they have to, actually play 15-18 minutes a game, and can contribute to the main objective in hockey, outscoring your opponent.


Downey and May took less stupid penalties than Bertuzzi and Salei.

I don't see any basis for your post, unless you consider matching fighting majors as stupid penalties.


#2105058 Four (5) Changes Scotty Bowman Would Like To See

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 January 2011 - 07:04 PM

I'm surprised getting rid of the salary cap wasn't one of the changes he listed.

:hehe:


#2105057 Enforcer Poll

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 January 2011 - 07:02 PM

I support the players you listed, and I also support big goons who have no talent other than intimidating people and punching them in their faces. And no I don't care that those players don't skate well or score points.

Just being completely honest with my feelings on this.
