#2036040 Bad Rep Immunity Thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 September 2010 - 10:04 PM

So if someone makes a post that 9 people like, but 100 people don't like, then it'll look like they made a rather favorable post, since it'll be +9.

Rather odd. :huh:

#2036038 An absolute steal...

I don't see what the big deal is.

Chris Benoit used to do throat jestures all the time when he was wrestling.

#2035950 Hit on Franzen worthy of suspension

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 September 2010 - 03:34 PM

So who's going to avenge Franzen?

We don't have an Enfo....... remember.

Last thing we need is for Bertuzzi to try to kill someone again.

#2035877 The NHL's Marketing Skills

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 September 2010 - 12:09 PM

Why does the NHL not make a serious effort to market anyone but Crosby and Ovechkin? This HBO thing is just more proof of that.

I know they're the two best players in the league and are the only household names in hockey amongst the general public. However, in other sports, it's more than just 2 players who are household names, and it's because those leagues try to make a real effort towards marketing those players. The NHL refuses to do so and I don't understand why. Isn't it better for the league if more players are marketed to the general public, instead of just showing Crosby and Ovechkin commercials all the time?

I remember last year after the Caps and Pens were eliminated, I heard many sportswriters complaining that they stopped caring about the playoffs because the two best players were gone, and I was infuriated by their stupidity and lack of knowledge about hockey. At the same time, I realized the league was responsible for this indifference, because it wasn't trying hard enough to market any other players.

I'm not saying the league should lay off these two superstars, but they need to acknowledge that there's other great stars in the game. That's what all the other sports leagues are doing and I think it will be better for hockey in the long run.

actually it's much more entertaining to have people respond to you instead of simply giving you a neg vote.

if by "many", you mean a few message board posters that have a habit of over-valuing their team's lesser players...then i guess you're right.

O.K. I have to ask this.

Are you Patrick Sharp by any chance?

#2035317 Am I the only one that respects Gary Bettman?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 September 2010 - 03:23 PM

He is singlehandedly responsible for us not winning the Cup in 1995, 1996, 2004, 2006 and 2009.

#2034714 Meanest defense in the league

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 September 2010 - 08:03 PM

If Lilja was still here, we'd have the meanest defense in the NHL by default.

They still don't.

Miss ya, Lils.

Well, I know he hasn't made the team yet, but I'm just saying that the move makes sense for them. No harm in trying him out.

He should be paid no less money around the NHL than Lebda is currently set to make.

We should sign Steve Moore. :hehe:

#2033253 Souray not welcome at Oilers camp

I'm sure he's fine staying at home, since this is what he's coming home to.

#2032296 Other Teams Fan Sites

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 September 2010 - 11:25 AM

Real quick way to get banned from the site is going over to team's forums and causing issues.

Say no to trolling, I ain't talking fishing.

Stay classy folks.

Yeah, I know.

I once thought about doing a 29 forums in 29 days thing, where I'd try to get banned from all 29 forums around the NHL. Then I found out about this rule on LGW about not trolling on other teams' forums, so I never did it.

I wonder why we have a rule on LGW, which controls what members do on other forums? I mean is it really the mods business what I do on the rest of the internet?

#2031896 Meech on waivers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 September 2010 - 06:04 PM

The end of the "Mebdeech" era is offically over with Lebda going to Toronto at a laughable contract and Meech being waived.

The peasants rejoice!

I thought it was Lebeech?

#2031786 Wings/Avs 2002 Playoffs

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 September 2010 - 11:55 AM

I'm sorry. As awesome as game 7 is, its not the best. Its not even a finals game.

Game 4 1997 holds that honor. All I have to say is...

Gary Thorne paints the picture.. "McCarty draws, McCarty in, McCarty SCORRRRRRES! A MAGNIFICENT GOAL! DARREN MCCARTY!"

That game 7 WAS for the Stanley Cup.

The Wings and Avs were by far the best teams in the league, and everyone knew Carolina wouldn't have a chance against either team. All the money was riding on that game.

He're what Jeff Finger posted on his twitter account a few years ago. Can't believe no one besides me noticed it.

"LOL! I can't believe those morons are gonna pay me $3.5 million per year"
