#2269559 Please, for the love of God

Posted by T.Low on 13 March 2012 - 01:48 PM

So, the Blues are the best team in the NHL. So anything short of a Presidents Trophy and Stanley Cup is a major disappointment and a lost season. No pressure: Good luck with that.

Personally, I like the fact that the raggedy ass franchise is finally having a season worth beating them in.

#2268817 What do you guys have to say about Filpulla now?

Posted by T.Low on 10 March 2012 - 03:49 AM

The dude may be a bit of a bad spelling, short fused, grumpy assed beeyatch, but he brings up all good points. Frikin Teemu Selanne has been gushing over what an extraordinary talent Filp is and how hard he plays, but LGW complains about the guy all the time. And people forget that Franzen was drafted as a checker and blossomed into the Mule that carries the load when it matters most, at a bagain of a price. Cleary's playing his heart out on one peg, but there are posts saying he's lazy and he sucks and we should trade the guy. Yeah, the f***in guy that dropped the gloves with Pronger and held his own. The game 7 guy. Get rid of the guy

It does seem like a lot of LGW fans can't understand why the Wings can't score at will, like they don't realize there is an actual opposing team (with all higher draft picks) out there trying to win the game also.

And instead of debating the meat of the issue, replies tend to nick pick the little things like one too many L's and too few P's in Filppula, when frikin Bab's can't even pronounce it correctly (Filapula)

But still, for us out-of-towners, it seems the best place to go for all things Wings. Long Live LGW. Go Wings.

they probably said something to warrant getting "knocked down". Funny how the guy just says "and then i was on the ground like it he got koed or something, what a wuss.

Yeah, that's f***in hilarious. You're an idiot.

Lol really? Lighten up. This kind of stuff happens in sports. It sucks when it happens in your city but there is nothing you can do about it. Hope he gets caught and move on.

Not sure what you mean by lighten up. An innocent man got beaten, and his wife and young daughter had to see, no less. WTF is wrong with people.

#2266208 Brad Stuart's family issues

Posted by T.Low on 03 March 2012 - 11:03 PM

I appreciate your well wishes in my own affairs, but you are viewing our heros in a god-like light.

While I am a longtime fan of our beloved team, I know that they are hardly models of wholesome family values. All of these players have chosen career over family...right or wrong. I am in no way judging as my own career is very dear to me.

Lidstrom, as well as any pro in any sport will play as long as their bodies allow them and they are earning the big bucks. I doubt any capable pro in any league would ever stop playing and earn a commoner's wage for the sake of "family." Its all about that green. And all of the trophy wives sitting in the stands know that.

I am sure if Detroit was the only team to offer Stuart a contract, he would be here, rather than retire and play Daddy. I would also bet that if Kenny threw Stu a few extra mil, he'd take the money.

If someone was willing to double or triple your income at a job you love, im sure you would make that oh so gut wrenching decision to move your family.
Edit: grammar

Now who is making huge assumptions about someone they know nothing about?

#2266200 Brad Stuart's family issues

Posted by T.Low on 03 March 2012 - 10:14 PM

Spoken like a guy who couldnt possibly know any less about this "guy."

Take your personal attacks and pure ignorance elsewhere.

It's not a personal attack, nor is it an inference about your personal life, it's merely an observation of who you speak like. It was one sentence and I was pretty concise. If my own mother had posted your posts, I would have called her on it by giving her the same reply I gave you.

Your posts in this thread are not consistant with an adult who has experienced the heart wrenching dilema of having to choose between family and career. Wether you acutualy have or not, your posts certainly do not indicate that you have, or have learned anything by it. Simple as that, as it's pretty insensitive to both Stuart's and Lidstrom's respective situations. They each have a family first, and a team second. Many of the players who place their teams over family someday end up with neither.

Here's to thanking Lids and Stuart for their respective time as Detroit Red Wings, and wishing them well in the future.

And I wish you well, now, and in the future also.

#2266161 Standings sans Loser Point

Posted by T.Low on 03 March 2012 - 05:31 PM

In my opinion, people who spend their time whining and complaining about rules that probably will not be changed in our lifetime, are morons. Just my 2 cents.

Glad John Hancock didn't share your philosophy. :ph34r:

I'd actually like to take it a step further. The game is 60 minutes for 2pts. Now, if it can't be won in the regulation 60 monutes, the value of the game goes down to 1pt. If it takes you OT or a shootout to win the game, you only get 1 pt and the loser gets 0.

I certainly remember the stories claiming he was "reconsidering" the possibility of moving to Sweden. He has done that for as long as he has been earning the larger contracts. Every contract year I have heard stories about this.

Spoken like a guy with no children and no good job offers.

#2265033 Jiri Hudler Watch Thread

Posted by T.Low on 28 February 2012 - 11:09 PM

His speed isnt a big problem anymore, he has great vision, and actually a laser beam of a slapper. He might be lazy and sucks, but I'm not Hudler hater anymore :thumbup:

:lol: :lol:

He is way too small to be that slow. How, in the name of God, could that ever happen to anyone. Please, although it would be so easy that it would be tempting, please, nobody make a highlight video of all the times guys have blown right by Hudler and scored a goal.

#2261966 Top 8 in the West Right Now

Posted by T.Low on 24 February 2012 - 03:58 AM

I do think our squad this season can get past San Jose or Vancouver in the playoffs, I just prefer not to play either if it can be avoided.

I do too, but...I still have the same bipolar issue I had at the beginning of the season: Sometimes I look at our roster and think, "Holy Crap, we have no scorers on this team!"; Other times I look at the same roster and think, "Holy Jumpin, any one of these guys can go off at any time!".

I'd like to see them at their best in playoffs and let the chips fall where they may. Well, I guess I really don't want to see them lose to San Jose,...or Vancouver,...ok, or Chicago. Awh f***, I've never been so stressed about this team before.

#2261962 Bertuzzi Contract Extension

Posted by T.Low on 24 February 2012 - 03:38 AM

I like this signing. I think the raise is due to the fact that he has worked out better than anyone first thought. He would get more now on the open market because of showcasing himself in Detroit for the last two years.

While Nyquist and Tatar need some ice time, they are 5'10 185. Bertuzzi is 6'3", 220, has awesome hands, is an excellent passer, has leanred to play D and Babcock says he is now a great shut down guy, and he has ragdolled Dion Phanueff, Shane Patatos OBrien, and many others. When Maxim Lapierre is runnin around taking indecent liberties with Red WIngs players, is Nyquist going to skate right up to Vancouver's bench and tell him to cool his f***in jets? No, but Bert has that sort of respect from every team in the league, and nobody wants to tangle with him. They know that f*****'s dangerously strong. He's got a great edge to his game.

Pavs, Franzen, and Bert is an awesome line.

How many guys can pass and make plays like him, win shootouts like him, and protect teammates like him? He may be half the beast he used to be, but he is still a very effective player, and still a HUGE presence that teams need to decide what to do with.

#2261955 Bertuzzi Contract Extension

Posted by T.Low on 24 February 2012 - 03:12 AM

You are so right there is more than hockey than production. Like defense, which he doesn't play.

He actually is a much worse player than his offensive numbers let on. I am not a fan of Bertuzzi in any way shape or form. I don't mind him as a depth player... but when you already see us in a number crunch of how many people we can have on our team. I don't like him being the first one added.

I want to say many have cited how he plays with Pavel and they expect more of him. Some have said it is unfair.

I would like to go the opposite direction... Instead of saying how much more production you expect out of Bert when playing with Pavel, what about saying how much more production Pavel could get with a better finisher. Pavel is a player who makes people better by giving space on the ice and making strong passes. Bert is slow and not really a sniper. He can go to the net pretty hard, but slowly.

When there is extra space on the ice, you need someone who can quickly move from gap to gap, or find the soft spot and rip a shot. Need I remind you how Brett and Pav played together???

I think Bert would play much better on a heavy line where the puck is cycled along the boards and players crash the net hard. I always like him and Cleary together and think Helm or abs would be a great third on that line.

Fact is he is an anchor to the top two lines, and is part of the reason IMO that Zetter's production is lacking. Franzen and Bert are too much alike for us to have them both in the top six.

He should be the guy last in line that Holland goes to and say, we will give you a one year for x dollars if you make the team. He shouldn't be taking a roster spot and contract right off the bat. This contract wouldn't bother me as much if it was the last signing of next year's off season and he was a bit cheaper. Not much, but like 200k would have made a bunch of difference in 2013-14. This money should be going to Helm and Abs, not Bert. Holland clearly wants to make him the new Homer.

Holland is pissing me off this month.

I happen to run into Mike and Marion Illitch at the Fox Theatre and I told them all about this post and about how much more hockey savy you have than Kenny Holland, Jim Nil, and Mike Babcock. Dude, they so want to hook up with you. They will be at the Little Ceasers at 7447 Gratiot Ave tomorrow morning and want to take you to the Machus Red Fox for brunch to talk about your ideas. :thumbup:

#2261949 Top 8 in the West Right Now

Posted by T.Low on 24 February 2012 - 02:40 AM

I think LA is going to make it to 7th. That way we have to get 1st place to avoid them and play Phoenix/Dallas (walk in the park) instead.

Chicago just lost to Dallas at home. The scariest thing about the Hawks sucking is that they might fall into 7th or 8th. We need those guys to be at 6th to knock out San Jose. The only team that we probably can't beat is San Jose.

But then again, even if say we get LA in the first round, if we have trouble against those guys, theres no chance we can get past Vancouver or San Jose.

Of course we can get by San Jose if we come to play, but we'd be runnin on fumes and beat to s***.

#2260829 Somethings brewin'?

Posted by T.Low on 22 February 2012 - 10:08 PM

Quincy is to add insurance so we're not starting completely from scratch if we lose Lids and Suart this summer.

Numerous articles have mentioned Stuart is leaning toward heading west.

Edit: FWIW
• Sports Illustrated: ...according to people with knowledge of the team's future plans (if the following guys are on the open market July 1), Plan A this summer will be to sign Zach Parise as a free agent. Plan B is sign Ryan Suter. Maybe both plans will come to fruition. Be afraid of the Detroit Red Wings."

#2260827 Somethings brewin'?

Posted by T.Low on 22 February 2012 - 10:03 PM

And I thought I was the only that notices that he misses the net every time he shoots.

You guys say that as if he is missing a huge gaping net; He is sniping the 2 hole or the 3 hole and sometimes he misses inside and hits the goalie in the shoulder (to which we have to listen to "Great Save, Loungo!") other times he misses wide which of course means he misses the net completely. It's not like he can't hit the broad side of a barn.
