#2677144 Biggest need for Red Wings in Off-season Poll

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 June 2016 - 12:52 PM

In the past, this poll would be easy.  Back then, we were good and were missing a piece or two.    

 

Now we need at least 4 of those categories.  Maybe all 5, but we likely don't need any defensive defensemen (though an upgrade over what we have would be nice).  But all the other categories we badly need to upgrade.  

 

I didn't vote because I can't decide what the biggest need is.  I'm leaning towards offensive defenseman, because your offense starts from the blue line.

It's called negative space. and yes this is an amazing design so simple, yet perfect.

 

Negative space.  My new nickname for Ericsson.   :lol:




#2677110 2016 SCF: San Jose Sharks vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 June 2016 - 11:17 AM

I'm willing to bet they are about to change that stat this year, despite my disliking. They have 2 shots at home ice and one away.

Annoyingly, they came to the show in the Finals. They are clicking and churning while the Sharks are not.

 

I shall retire from this debacle and skate some, with some luck It'll ease my mind.

 

On the bright side, there will be a new video of Crosby lifting the Cup.  Not just the one in JLA that I always turn away from.  


 

It's a shame, Tolliver was really on top of his game in that one too.

 

Luc Robitaille's breakaway buzzer beating goal at the end of regulation to force OT is something I'll never forget from that game.

Preferred the whale tail did you?

The person who designed this logo should be in the HHOF.  The blue whale tail on top of the "subtle" white H and the green W beneath.  In contrast, the person who designed the Hurricanes logo should be sent to the minors to design logos for beer league teams.

Pittsburgh has never won the Cup on home ice.  

 

Although they had a chance in the 1995 Finals before the game was interrupted by terrorist attacks in OT of game 7.

Nothing wrong with the original Panthers jersey.  No makeover needed.  

 

Please give Carolina a new jersey, color scheme and logo.  Same with Arizona and a few others.

I'd rank the 2002 Wings and the 2001 Avalanche over the 2008 Wings.  Probably have to rank the 2000 Devils above the 2008 Wings also.

Hoping the Sharks do to the Pens what the Pens did to us in 2009.

Would be funny if they named Jeff Carter captain.   




#2676487 ECF : Tampa Bay Lightning vs. Pittsburgh Penguins

These offside challenges are a joke. Completely sucked the excitement out of the game not even 5 minutes in.

 

The joke is how many the refs miss in real time.  Makes you wonder how many playoff games have been decided in the past by blown offsides call.

This guy totally dispels the myth that Americans are fat, obnoxious, disrespective slobs.

Did anyone else see the HNIC video?

I always wanted the Wings to have a Holmstrom, Helm, Hudler line.   :hehe:

I don't like Tampa, but you have to give Yzerman and Cooper credit.  No Stamkos.  No Bishop.  Filppula centering the top line.  

 

And they're one game away from the Finals.

Fleury had no business being in net tonight.  Bad coaching taking out a guy that brought them there. 

 

When was the last time Fleury had a good playoff?  2009?

I honestly think PIT was looking for an excuse to get Fleury in there and game 4 was a perfect scenario...down big, get him some in game experience without risking much of anything.

 

HBK at game 5 to see the HBK line.

 

Would be awesome if he superkicks Crosby after the game and takes off his jersey to reveal a Lightning jersey underneath.  

 

:yowza:
