Video or it didn't happen.

#2254082 What the F has gotten into these wings?

Maybe Babcock pulled a Reggie Dunlop on them.

Oh and ... fighting wins! :hehe:

Our fight count has doubled in the last week!

I'm grateful to Abby and Commodore's faces being willing to take these punches.

#2253925 Jeff Carter

He's been hurt a lot and he sleeps with other players' wives.

Probably not a good idea for us.

These are all problems, but the lack of a great top 6 scorer is the biggest.

Special teams is a streaky thing anyway, and as others have pointed out, a sniper would improve our powerplay.

Why did Cleary shoot instead of Franzen?

You are kidding right?

How many goals does he have when the game was tied? When the Wings are losing? Franzen useless...

Maybe Ozzie will make a comeback.

I heard that Ben Eager came out of his mother's anus instead of her ******.

Just start the Superbowl already as this game is just a waste of time for my weekend and the result was pretty much decided once Jimmy got injured.

If I ever get banned from this forum, I feel better knowing someone is around who will continue my legacy.

Sidney Crosby has possessed Sam Gagner's body and found a way to get back on the ice!!!!!!!


#2252045 How open would you be to trading Hank?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 February 2012 - 01:42 PM

Nothing this year, one of my philosophies is don't f**k with Team Chemistry when things are working even if your best players are not producing near expectations. I'd rather have a terrible Hank with another Stanly Cup than another Ovi with zero cups :)

Getting eliminated in the second round in consecutive years doesn't mean things are working. The Wings have higher expectations than that.

If you're talking about our position in the standings, that doesn't matter come playoff time. We've seen that before. The President's Trophy is s***.

I don't know about trading Zetterberg, but we do need to make some kind of move, not only because of our past playoff failures, but because our competitors will make moves themselves.

#2251424 Rick Nash?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 February 2012 - 08:48 PM

I fear that if Columbus offered us Nash for Filppula straight up (which of course they wouldn't), many posters here on LGW wouldn't take it. Same with Iginla or Perry.

Flip is having a great year, but you can't get a franchise player without trading a good player in return. Filppula or Franzen are the only ones who fit that definition.

If you want a lot, you have to give up something good in return.

#2251173 My Dream NHL

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 February 2012 - 08:30 PM

Contract Florida, Nashville and Columbus from the league
Move Winnipeg to Quebec and move Phoenix back to Winnipeg. Somehow, it'd be more fitting.
Ban goalies from getting into a butterfly stance.
Get rid of the instigator.
Bring back pure goons who can't play hockey.
Give the original 6 teams an automatic playoff spot.
Bring back the jerseys from the early 90's. Get rid of the new Reebok s*** and the stupid stripes.
Have home teams wear white again.
Each team will play a home and home against each team.

#2250918 Future retired numbers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 31 January 2012 - 02:07 PM

#5 Lidstrom - pretty self-explanatory. Lifetime wing and the best player of his generation. Has done it all.

#20 Downey - 2008 Stanley Cup. Enough said.

#4 Red Kelly - at some point, this organization will get a clue and retire his number. Probably after Ilitch dies and new ownership takes over. Before Lidstrom, he was the best defenseman ever to play for this franchise.

#6 Larry Aurie - same as above. His number may likely be restored one day where it belongs.

#7 Norm Ullman - a great player who was one of the best centers of his era. Only, I think he wore the same number as Lindsay. Don't know how that would work.

#91 Sergei Fedorov - this is one that will probably not happen, but I wish it would. I know it's been debated to death around here. But in 25 years, who knows.

#13 and #40 - They may or may not get retired, depending on how much more they accomplish in their careers.
