#2257474 A new rival for the Canucks

Expansion?

The league needs relocation right now and not expansion.

Move Phoenix to Quebec and the Florida Panthers to Saskatoon.


#2257126 Blackhawks' Losing Streak: Nine Games and Counting

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 15 February 2012 - 11:26 AM

Remember the Wings February in 2008? It gets pointed out like 10,000 times here on LGW, so I thought I'd do it as well. Granted, we were in better shape in the standings, but I expect them to make the playoffs anyway.

They'll make a move at the deadline and get better somehow.

No one in the West wants to play this team in the first round. We could beat them, but it still wouldn't be preferable.

Too bad it wasn't Ott.

Why would they trade him in the division?

True. Some points in favor of this era, however, is not only the parity within the system but the speed of the game.


But the Flyers had to contend with Montreal and Boston in their era.

The league is, however, more competitive today. That's why I said this streak is pretty impressive in this day and age, even if shootout victories are involved.

In this day and age, it's impressive for any team to win 20 in a row at home. And we have a chance to add to it.

However, I think it's fair to point out that the '76 Flyers played before there were overtimes, let alone shootouts. They won 20 in a row at home in "regulation". Of course I'll get negged for this post, but I like hockey history and think it's important to point that out. Same thing with Brodeur breaking Parent's wins in a season record. The shootout has put a different spin on records.

Lastly, I've never been a big believer in needing home ice, but this year it might be more important than ever before. The Wings are unbeatable at home but very average on the road. They need to keep rolling and secure first in the West.

10 game winning goals for Franzen.

LeftWinger will like that. :lol:

I hope Max Talbot gets raped by homosexual werewolves with STD's.

19 in a row is pretty good...I'd take another trip to the playoffs over 20 home wins in a row.

Still lots of time to take the game over. We are getting chances...need to start making them count.

We'll have at least 3 more PPs. And get 2 goals out them.


Right, because winning this game increases our chances of missing the playoffs somehow.

:rolleyes:

I think Schenn had dropped the gloves but nothing came of it.


Didn't he get embarrassed by Kovalchuk last week?

Our winning streak is in some jeopardy now.

McDonald with two boneheaded plays leading to goals.

Franzen doesn't like black people apparently.

Is it just me, or is Engblom really blowing the Wings tonight?

I never knew he liked our team this much.


#2255252 The Abdelkader hate

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 February 2012 - 02:42 PM

As I've said before, I liked him better when he was first called up and tried to hit everything that moved. He's not a bad player for us, but we can get a better version of Abdelkader easily.

And I'm still upset about his 0 points in 11 playoff games last season and all the dumb penalties he took.

Bottom line for me, is that other than Helm, none of our 4th liners are guys I "absolutely" think we need to keep long term. If we keep Abby, so be it, and if not, we can replace him just fine.
