#2567732 Ovechkin joins elite company

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 01 February 2015 - 07:41 PM

All those other guys played in a more high scoring era.  Ovechkin is scoring in this oversized pads, butterfly goalie era where not as many goals are scored.  


He has a chance to retire as one of the 5 best wingers in NHL history.  

#2567340 Buffalo Sabres could go for the record

Since they've changed their name to Sabers, are they going to have lightsabers instead of swords in their logo now?   :tounge:

#2567019 1/29 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Lightning 5

With a competent goalie in net they are.

Unscreened from the point. THe goals just keep getting uglier. Bishop might be able to beat him from the other end now.


Didn't we win a bunch of games in a row with Mrazek, despite giving up a lot of goals?  Can't have it both ways.  

#2566711 Greatest US-born NHLer of all time?

Chelios by far. Longevity, leader, competitor to the max, and one of the top 5 defencemen of all time. There is more to the game then just goals. When Detroit lost Konstintinov and they brought Chelios in I had my doubts. But after a short while saw how great he was, and that was late in his career. Montreal made a great error when they got rid of him because he was not a French canadian.


That's a bold claim.  


I guess some would say top 5 and top 10 isn't much different, but I say it is different in this case.  I have him in the top 10, but he can't be top 5.  Top 5 would be Orr, Lidstrom, Harvey, Shore and Bourque, in whatever order you want them.  Potvin could also sneak in there.  Chelios would be somewhere around Larry Robinson's ranking, just below that top group.

Imagine how good we'll be when Holland makes his deadline acquisition of bringing Franzen back from IR.  

#2566574 1/27 GDT : Red Wings 5 at Panthers 4

Who really could of guessed we would be where we are now before the season started? Pleasantly surprised.


I did.  Read my post back in October.  

I like how challenging the division can be you cant count out Fla or Tor yet only buffalo is the team who cant do squat but its amazing how the atlantic can be the toughest race in the east


I just hope we don't get stuck against Boston in the first round.  Don't like that matchup, even if they have struggled this year.  

#2566152 LA puts Mike Richards on waivers

Slightly off topic, but this is hilarious.


Also, we all need to take a minute and acknowledge the real victim here...Jeff Carter.  What the hell is he going to do without his wingman? 




Yeah, victim.   :rolleyes:



#2566141 LA puts Mike Richards on waivers

Mike Richards is the kind of leader, and veteran presence our young guys need in the locker room...er...yeah...




I'll raise



#2566063 LA puts Mike Richards on waivers

Considering Edmonton fans are whiny about them not being able to bring in guys like this during free agency a waiver claim by them seems like a smart move


If he goes to Edmonton, that would be the end of his partying days as we know it.  Not many pornstars parties up there.  

#2566050 Toronto rumored to host 2017 ASG, and a Stadium Game

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 January 2015 - 02:56 PM

This game should be played somewhere in Hudson Bay.

#2566048 2016 World Cup of Hockey

It could be worse.  


They could have asked Slovakia and the Czech Republic to merge as one team.  Now that would make for an interesting tournament.

Not even close.  

Modano followed by Chelli


LOL.  Madonna is not in Chelios' league.


One is a top 10 all time defensemen, the other would be lucky to be a top 50 all time forward.  

My vote is Modano


Based one what?  Having a higher overall in video games in the late 90's?  

#2565708 Franzen on IR

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 January 2015 - 01:59 PM


But you have evidence to suspect him of "emotional issues"?


This whole thread has turned hokey.  Why don't we all stick to Franzen and hockey and not try to assassinate/dissect his character.  Regardless of how we feel about him on the ice, there is absolutely NOTHING to suggest he's not a decent, committed, hard working, emotionally stable person. 


Holland should sign McGrattan as a shadow buddy for Franzen.  He seems like a good teammate and is popular with the ladies for some reason.  I feel he can help Franzen get over his anxiety issues.  It will help the team in the long run.  

#2565605 Stadium series Wings vs Avs 2016!

If the two teams wear these jerseys instead, I will watch the game.











#2565446 What should we do with the Monster?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 January 2015 - 02:47 PM

I feel weird calling a skinny Swedish dude, Monster.  You'd think he was 6'8 and weighed 280 lbs.
