Well, I rarely drink to get drunk anymore, so that's why I stick with the light beer. If I'm drinking to get drunk, I'll get on the liquor... :tounge:

 

I love how we have been to a couple parties at the same time, and even had chats and had no idea we were both members on here until now haha


Lakeport -- a buck a beer! Ontarians know what I'm talking about.

 

Now this brings back some classic memories. But hey, it all tastes the same when you're already hammered




#2544835 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

This is a good thing. He can now get in game shape so when he cracks the lineup now he won't have to play so much catchup and be limited to 8 minutes as a result.

It's October.....


And the team is having a great start despite playing some tough teams this month. Are we not allowed to be excited?

Oh yeah, you're one of those who have been predicting doom and gloom. Sorry your predictions have been completely wrong thus far. But not really.


#2542673 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

I love how this thread has been reactivated from the depths after 5 games, the Wings are 3-1-1 without their best player, have gone toe to toe with 2 of the best teams in the league, look incredibly energetic and speedy, and have a tremendous PK. 

 

Whats not to like? 

 

Screw the 'experts'. They're not the ones out there on the ice. And so far, I like what i've seen (outside of the first two periods of Wednesdays game, but even then we got a point out of it)

 

I also love that Quincey has been a positive contribution to the teams success. Especially on the PK.

Scoring in OT counts as a win in regulation correct?

 

It is a ROW win, yes

CBC acting as if we'll lose Babs after this season because the Wings wouldn't be willing to pay him more than Holland makes.

Swap Kindl for Ouellet and I'm happy. I don't even hate KFQ this year yet.

 

100% agree. Quincey has been good ever since about half way into last season. That plus getting Dats back in the lineup and this team will be really fun.

I'm so glad our franchise wasn't created to promote a Disney movie

 

The only good thing to come of them is disney.com

#2538430 Are the wings underrated?

Posted by marcaractac on 05 October 2014 - 08:20 AM

Anyone consider that perhaps we are 'overrated' because we're biased die hard fans?  We're a middle of the pack team at best, granted the last 2 years we finished #2 and 3 in man games lost (or something like that).  But the Wings are almost a decade removed from the last Cup, FA's no longer want to come to play in Detroit, and our coaching and other leaders leave for greener pastures for a chance to win.

 

In all fainess though, I do think the man games lost has been the biggest problem, when compared to the other teams with similar losses, they are all bottom feeder teams with the exception of Pittsburg and Anaheim.

 

If you'd like to crunch your own numbers:

They don't leave for a chance to win, they leave for a chance to be a GM or head coach, and not an assistant. Big difference.




#2536878 Did the Wings change the font on their jerseys?

Well played lol




#2535322 Expansion draft - how many players can each team protect ?

Posted by marcaractac on 01 September 2014 - 01:47 PM

Could be a tough situation for Detroit with a future Howard/Mrazek tandem. Protecting both goalies will likely mean the loss of a top four defenseman.

 

I'd say they'd protect Mrazek. Can't really see an expansion team drafting Howard.

I expect to see 2-2.5 per. Either way, I expect people to complain about it now but be praising it come the final year. That's usually how these contracts work out  :lol:
