#2442431 Great Red Hope

Excellent post thank you. Nuggets like this are reason #1 why I continue to sift through all the bs on LGW.


#2442099 Devils sign Brunner 2 yrs. $2.5 million AAV

Posted by T.Low on 05 October 2013 - 01:22 PM

 
lol, seriously?  Brunner fought off the defenceman to maintain position on the first goal, and on the other was cool enough to hold onto the puck for the fraction of a second he needed to elevate the puck over the goalie.
 
If scoring goals was as easy as hanging around the crease and poking rebounds home, Phil Esposito wouldn't be the only person to do it 70 times a season.  And when Tatar finally gets his chance and starts scoring these kinds of goals on a regular basis (as he did in GR) I luck forward to you calling them all lucky goals that you could have scored.


Agreed. Definitely not garbage. They were exactly the goals Crosby scores all the time

They were also a perfect example of why he should've been down low on our PowerPlay instead of up high.

He definitely has a nose for the puck, no pun intended. And yes Tatar and Nyquist would have scored those goals. Abby, maybe not the first one and probably would have positioned himself in traffic instead of back door in an open shooting lane on the second.

I guess I'm wacky, I actually hope he does well while Nyquist and Tatar do well also.

Blows me away that anyone would call those garbage goals: he was exactly where he was supposed to be and did exactly what he was supposed to do.

For the record, put me in the pro Bertuzzi category.


#2439173 Filppula to Tampa 5 yr $5 million

Posted by T.Low on 26 September 2013 - 03:00 PM

D and Z are just a little bit better than Filuppla.



I absolutely love D and Z. I just wish they would score more goals.


#2438281 will you tank red wings games due to the cleary signing

Posted by T.Low on 22 September 2013 - 03:24 PM

i saw this thread on HFboards a few days ago. someone asked if any wings fan would give up on buying tickets to the games due to the cleary signing, and some posters said they'd downright not watch games on television anymore. 
 
i'm just curious, will anyone here tank the games this year? i personally will watch the games but probably won't attend one.



I'm about ready to tank LGW for threads like this.


#2438053 Burke Wins Default Judgment Against Internet Defamers

Posted by T.Low on 21 September 2013 - 02:41 AM

That's pretty serious defamation.  Good for Burke to sue and win.

 

Thread title is totally misleading.

 

 

Edit:  Thread title has been changed.




#2437355 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Met a Flyer fan today. Said he was bumbed they didn't land Danny. True story.

Tatar is worthy of a serious look with D and Z.


#2436348 Torts on Twitter: "most narcissistic thing I have ever seen"

Posted by T.Low on 12 September 2013 - 07:01 PM

I heard the interview on Vancouver's team 1040. Wasn't that big of a deal. He said Twitter has its place; he and his wife organize a charity dog walk that brings in a lot of money for Humane Society. He said Twitter was great promoting the event.

All he really said was that of course what goes on in the locker room stays in the locker room and not on Twitter.

Narcissistic comment was when pro athletes feel the need to tweet" eating a roast beef sandwich then I'm going to the bathroom", and that was actually pretty damn funny.

So far the Vancouver media thinks he's awesome. He has given some excellent interviews with a lot of hockey insight.


#2436133 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by T.Low on 12 September 2013 - 11:28 AM

I wish I could fly to Traverse City and shake Dan Cleary's hand.

 

 In this day and age of pro athletes chasing the Big $ at all costs, the guy walked away from millions of dollars, put his ego aside, crawled back to the negotiation table to eat some major crow, all so he could stay with friends,  teammates, and an organisation and town that he loves.

 

Cleary went toe to toe with one of Detroit's all time biggest nemesis, Chris Pronger, he went after Dion Phaneuf, knocking him silly, then getting an assist on the goal. He's scored numerous playoff game winning goals.  Even when he's basically duck taped together, he's still finishing checks and jumping into scrums. He is a winner, he is the epitome of a team heart and soul guy, he has hands, grit, and smarts.  He is a major contributor at all costs.

 

$1.75m!  Talk about a Hometown Discount!  

 

Totally glad he's back. And frankly, I can't see him really giving a s*** what number is on his jersey, as long as the logo is the Winged Wheel.

#2435915 Sedin Twins

Posted by T.Low on 11 September 2013 - 07:41 PM

I hate them also.  They dive and I don't like their faces.  
 
Why does hate have to be rational?  



If you have to ask, then I'm afraid we can't help you


#2435711 Report: Cleary to sign with PHI, 3 yrs, $2.75m/yr, NTC

Pronger will be very happy to see his old friend Cleary.

but there is no denying that he was a warrior on the ice, and always left it all on the ice.




Apparently there is some denying, I saw it on the other thread.

Zetterberg- Datsyuk- Bertuzzi
Franzen- Weiss- Alfie
Nyquist- Anderson- Tatar
Abby- Helm-Miller/Eaves/Sammy
 
Kronners- Ericsson
Dekeyser- Smith
Kindl- Quincy
 
 
- I think this will make the team as balanced as possible. 
- Bert, as long as he is healthy, is better than Abby on the top line with Pavs and Hank. Bert is a bigger body, and is able to create more space for the Eurotwins. Also, Bert is a very good passer, and can contribute with goals. 2nd!!



With Berts vision and passing skills and the attention he still commands on the ice I can see Hank having a great year production wise with he and Datsyuk.
