#1992095 SCF Game Two GDT

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 31 May 2010 - 10:23 PM

You guys do realize that Hawks fans despise the Wings more than any other team. I doubt they've rooted for us in any of our SCF matchups. Why should we root for them? What the hell kind of fans root for their rivals, who hate them in return and say "Red Wings Suck" at every game, even when we're not playing?

And who cares about Pronger already? You hate him more than our biggest rivals in the Conference?

And I say there's plenty of despicable Hawks players. Kane, Bufflin, Kopecky, Hossa, Campbell, Eager. I hate these rejects just as much as the Flyers cast of a-holes.

This has got to be the most obnoxious Finals I've watched not involving the Wings in a long time.

I'm annoyed at anything that happens and irritated at all possible outcomes.

The games were good though.

I know.

I hate about 15 players on these two teams. However, it's hard to hate the Flyers as much as the Hawks and their annoying fans. I haven't had to deal with Flyers fans, them being in a different conference.

Their fans are bandwagoner retards who don't deserve a Cup. At least Flyers fans have been loyal to their team for a long time, even when they finished last a few years back.

I don't know what's worse. The Hawks winning the Stanley Cup or the fact that some Wings fans (traitors) are cheering for it?

I wonder how many Red Sox fans cheered for the Yankees last year in the World Series?

Oh and Philly shouldn't have waited till the 3rd period to start trying.

Watching Carcillo spout off is so much fun. He just looks hilarious with his dirty stache and missing teeth. I really wish Kopy and him would have thrown down there. Probably would have ended up rather funny.

Since the Hockey Gods have pissed on the Wings all year, Kopecky would probably KO Carcillo with one punch.

Then Leino will demolish Bufflin with a bodycheck at center ice.

Are they going to show the game, or just talk about howf****** great game 1 was. Enough over-analysis already.

Get on with the show NBC!


Don't say those things on a Wings forum.

I doubt any of their retard fans were shouting "Go Wings" in the Finals last year.

#1991600 Who would be a superstar?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 30 May 2010 - 10:30 PM

Joe Thornton. Anze Kopitar. Evgeni Malkin. Sidney Crosby. Eric Staal. Vincent Lecavalier. Nik Antropov. Antoine Vermette. Scott Gomez. Jason Spezza. Mike Ribiero. Some of these guys are downright atrocious defensively, some are basically average. None are "responsible" as you quantify it, because none are better than Hudler defensively, at least not significantly, and most are MUCH worse than Hudler defensively.

Yes, the center position is typically the defensive lock on a line. But not by any means always. Remember Gretzky's regular lines in Edmonton? Semenko/Gretzky/Kurri. Anderson/Gretzky/Kurri. Tikkanen/Gretzky/Kurri. Semenko/Gretzky/Anderson. That last one is the only one that doesn't include a Selke winner, and Anderson was no slouch defensively. Kurri and Tikkanen were Selke contenders their entire careers. Kurri continued on and was Gretzky's winger in LA as well. Tikkanen rejoined Gretzky on a line briefly in 1995-96. After signing with the New York Rangers that summer, Gretzky would play on the second line, with Luc Robitaille again on his wing, but he would also get one of the league's better defensive specilists in Niklas Sundstrom on the other side.

So what's wrong with an excellent playmaking center if one of his wingers can play the lock-down role effectively? Nothing if he does his job well.

We have better centers than him and are loaded at that position.

Besides, he's not in the same class of player offensively as most of the guys you mentioned. A superstar center can get away with being bad defensively. Hudler is not a superstar.

As for guys like Antropov, they're a joke, so let's not compare him to anyone like that. That's not what we need.

Hudler would suck ass at center.

A center is supposed to be responsible defensively, and he isn't.

That's my boy.


#1991312 Is Datsyuk "Superhuman"?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 May 2010 - 10:13 PM

I don't think he was better this year than last year.

You can say that about the whole team I guess, but I think we've seen his peak as a player. Hopefully he stays at this level for a few more years.

Anyone who thinks otherwise is just another biased LGW member who expects Datsyuk to score 120 points next year and for Hank to hit 50 goals, while Hudler scores 80 points. :rolleyes: Tired of these unrealistic expectations.

He didn't have the kind of season a guy like that should have had.

#1991049 IIHF vs. NHL.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 May 2010 - 11:02 AM

I don't think TV ratings will be that high, however, since the games are being played on a different continent with incovenient times for the games.

I'd like to see NHL players there, but don't expect a repeat of exposure that these past Olympics got in the US.

How about a third one in early April between Florida and Tampa at the Buccanneers stadium?


#1989952 Yzerman Likely to Target Wings Players

Fillpulla could work on his tan down there in Florida, come to think of it.


#1989945 Yzerman Likely to Target Wings Players

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 May 2010 - 11:17 AM

I'm guessing that Yzerman will heavily target former or current Wings players, to try and draw them to Tampa.

We see this all the time in sports, when a new coach or GM tries to bring in players that they're familiar with and have played with before.

I don't think any star players will follow him there, but I wouldn't be surprised if guys like Maltby or Draper end up finishing their careers in Tampa now. Maybe Lilja if the Wings don't bring him back. Hey, when is Fedorov's contract up in Russia? :D

Anyway, I expect to see an increase in former Wings players on Tampa's roster.
