#2072996 Shane Doan at the trade deadline = 2011 Stanley Cup

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 December 2010 - 01:39 AM

Doan is not playing all that great to say the least.

He doesn't have much of a future either.


#2070882 Kyle Quincey

He's sucked this season, but how about getting facts straight?

He was out 16 days with CONCUSSION.


Crymson doesn't believe that being out with an injury excuses a player from not scoring points while he's injured.


#2069586 Modano has severed flexor tendon

Holland and Babcock expected a better turnout from Hudler.

Using hindsight to justify why we should have done A instead of B is ridiculous. I don't see how adding either of those players would have improved our team a great deal anyways. It's not like either of them is storming the trenches with solid play.


Depends on what your definition of solid play is. I just wanted a few grinders on the team instead of skilled players who would be put in situations they're not comfortable with, such as playing on the 3rd line.

Granted, Modano and Hudler have gotten more than enough playing time imo, but they just don't look like good fits right now with the Wings. A solid 4th liner would have been a good fit and would have allowed someone like Helm or Abby to play on the 3rd line with Cleary and get more playing time, which both those guys deserve.

Haha sneaky GMR :cool:

Imagine if they put the money on Asham or similar player :hehe:

It's not the best player on the team that got injured but as one said earlier, abdelkaders faceoffs are a bit weak for him to center the third line


But we couldn't sign Asham or Neil, because we spent too much money on Hudler.

These both look like failed signings right now. Maybe something will change around playoff time, but I still feel that our money would have been better served elsewhere.


#2068585 Chelios might sign for Vitiaz Tjechov

If this is true, then Chelios has passed Ric Flair as the most over the hill athlete in sports history.


#2066832 11/21 GDT: Flames 4 at Red Wings 5 (OT)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 November 2010 - 10:08 PM

What exact penalty are the flames fans whining about?


Probably the last 20 years of their pathetic franchise (minus the fluke run in 2004).


#2066403 11/21 GDT: Flames 4 at Red Wings 5 (OT)

Hudler sucks.

"What, you want me to crash the net when there's a rebound? No, thanks. I'd rather just coast towards the net and watch."


Dude, we've won like 5 of our last 6 games.

Geez, some people here just can't be satisfied with anything.

Babcock needs to strangle a puppy behind the bench to show he means business!


Or he can strangle Hudler.

It's the same thing.


#2065737 11/19 GDT: Wild 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 November 2010 - 10:13 PM

Bleh, not Howie's best game. He'll rebound, but definitely needs to keep his head up a bit more.

Final/Overtime
Wild: 4 (Burns, Clutterbuck, Koivu, Madden)
Wings: 3 (Helm, Franzen, Eaves)


No pun intended. ;)


#2065487 Goaltending, better now than ever?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 November 2010 - 07:55 PM

Goalies are better now than they've ever been in terms of schooling.

That makes it even more obvious that the league needs to mandate goalies to wear less equipment. Protection is one thing, but this s*** we see nowadays is taking it too far.

We suck at late period goals, and goals right after we score.


#2064350 11/17 GDT: Blues 3 at Red Wings 7

If Holmstrom's fat ass wasn't covering the net Lidstrom might have had a target to shoot at.


Hey, Holmstrom's fat ass is responsible for about half of Lidstrom's career points. :D

Although I guess in that situation he didn't really need to screen the goalie, who was already moving side to side.


#2060607 What is the greatest television show of all time?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 09 November 2010 - 08:18 PM

WWE Raw for me.

Only show in TV history with over 900+ episodes and still going.

It's there every week with a new show and no offseasons. Fans of every TV show would dream for that kind of deal.

Dragon Ball Z, no joke

It displays honorable, noble characters with good morals and good prevailing over evil. The characters have great depth as they change from good to bad as well as great characterization. The men are respectable, alpha-males and the women are tough and smart. The story is original. The dialogue is funny and and the word choices are very smart. And most of all it's really badass. Best television show of all time. :P


God I miss that show. :(

Although I still think Dragonball was a better show, since it didn't drag so long and was more of an adventure story.


#2060602 McGrattan and Boyd placed on waivers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 09 November 2010 - 08:10 PM

We should sign McGrattan.

:thumbup:

I'd be willing to babysit his children for free in order for him to move to Detroit.

... with your typical detachment from reality.


I am reality. :cool:
