#2161738 Have you ever seen.....

Posted by T.Low on 30 April 2011 - 12:32 AM

While I agree with you that the wings didn't get enough offense going, I disagree with how you disregarded the dives. The dives have nothing to do with red wing offense. They do however, have something to do with putting the sharks on fake power plays and having increased chances at scoring goals, and oh they tied it on one of those bulls*** powerplays.

So, while I do agree the wings need to pick it up, the fans have every right to ***** about diving and bad calls. Sorry.



I am going to disregard them because they are out of our control. If it was an even game, then I may point out of dive or two. But when we play two periods like we did, I would be very embarrassed to even bring it up.

We did not take care of our own business. We got severely outplayed in the 2nd, and got beat badly in the third.
The OT PK was a thing of beauty for 3:55, then not clearing it and getting fresh legs out there cost the game. But at fortyf***ingsix shots on goal, it was just a matter of time before one fluked it's way past Jimmy.

It was an embarrassing 40 minutes of playoff hockey by us, and you guys are worried about dives? We have much bigger things to worry about than that.

You guys are worse than Canuck and Pittsburgh fans. You ought to be ashamed of yourselves.

This stat line says it all for this game.

11:20 Jonathan Ericsson: 2 Minutes for Hooking Joe Pavelski
6:33 Jiri Hudler: 2 Minutes for Tripping Joe Pavelski
9:57 Jimmy Howard: 2 Minutes for Roughing Joe Pavelski
9:41 Todd Bertuzzi: 2 Minutes for Boarding Joe Pavelski





No, actually this stat line says it all for this game.

Shots: SJ 46; Det 25
Score: SJ 2; Det 1

They give up 46 shots to only 25 and you guys are bitchin about dives? 18 shots in the 2nd period alone? Sheeyaat.


Half way thru the 3rd my wife said "One goal isn't going to do it for this game. The Wings better pick it up". She was right.

Dive schmive, the Wings had no jump after the 1st period.


#2159770 Question: Why do Wings fans hate the Canucks?

Posted by T.Low on 28 April 2011 - 12:48 AM

Their organization whines almost as much as their fans, Sedins dive, Burrows dives, Luongo dives a lot, the fanbase overall is annoying and always talk up their team which has never won anything,



Good summation, there, actually.

I've lived all over the world. In '98 I moved to Bellingham and tried to become a Canucks fan (2nd to the Wings, of course).

But Brian Burke was an unbelievable whiner. He was incredibly condescending in every interview I ever heard on The Team 1040. In short, he was a jackass. ("If Trevor Linden gets a better offer than what I gave him, I'll drive him to the airport"). Crawford was an ass in his interviews too. Always defensive, etc.

It trickled down thru the organization and the team, although incredibly talented, was rancid.

Matt Cooke.

Dave Nonis was Burke Jr. Schooled by Burke and was a walking Mini Me of Burke. Made some good moves, but the guys attitude was impossilbe to like.

The Green Guys.

The "Luuuuuuuuuuu" everytime a puck hits Luongo in the logo. Annoying, 2nd only to the Jordan Tootoo whistle. If you want to heap praise on a player, you wait for the player to accumulate a few great moments and then when he ragdolls an opponent and turns the tide of a game, all 18,000 of you chant his name in unison: "Todd Ber TU Zi!"

Gillis is also super condescending in his interviews to the Team 1040. He is getting a little better, but just the other day I was thinking what a great interview Ken Holland is. Holland, Babcock, Devallano, Nil, the Illitch's, all people I would love to have over to my house for dinner. Not Gillis.

Gillis is smart, though. He refers to Detroit as the Gold Standard for NHL franchises and that's what he wants to do in Vancouver. That's cool. It seems he has that team set up real well. On the other hand, who locks an unproven goalie up for 12 years? And I guess we will see about the Sedins. I've liked them for a long time and stood up for them when Canuck fans called them the Sedin Sisters. I am super glad that the twins won the Art Ross back to back. (Can you imaing eif Burke would have signed them in Toronto before Gillis resigned them, and they won the Art Ross back to back in Torontao instead of Vancouver! :angry: ) But Milbury was right when he called them the Twinkies saying they have been totally ineffective in round one and are afraid to go to the ruff parts of the ice, unlike Pavs and Z.

It's cool that they have a Michigan boy leading the charge.

AV is a likeable coach. I'm glad he is doing well.

I've tried to like Burrows but just can't.

I like Sammy, and Erhoff was a great addition. Torres? I just don't know about that guy. Manny Malhotra is a class act. (Married to NBA Steve Nash's sister) I wish him all the best in his recovery.

Vancouver's attitude after beating Chicago was not right.

I don't hate the Canucks, but they make it difficult to like them. A lot of people in Bellingham feel that way.

#2130764 Crosby's family trying to convice him to retire?

Posted by T.Low on 16 March 2011 - 12:15 PM

If he is forced to retire by his family that would be great, I hate that f*****.




That's kinda funny, cause I know you and all the plus five (or whatever it's up to at any given point) are not serious. Yeah, i hate that f***** too.Ha ha.

He's incredible. And it's a shame his season got cut short (and I'll be the first one to call out Don Cherry and the rest of the media; I don't think it was a dirty hit at all, it was an unintentional collision, more Crosby's fault than whatshisname's) because he was light years ahead of everyone in points.

And on the like vs don't like arguement, I'd love to play some pond hockey and then go have a beer with him (or hot chocolate cause the guy probably doesn't drink beer), even though I really don't like to hear about him from the casual fan. WHen the casual fan wants to talk hockey with me and thats all they can think of is the Crosby clip they saw on ESPN, I roll my eyes and think this dude has no clue as to what he is talking about.

But the casual fan is not here on LGW. There is NO reason Crosby has given the real hockey fan to hate him enough to hope his career is cut chort by a brain injury.

I hope he comes back to his 100% level, and is however awesome he is during the season and playoffs, and then the Detroit Red Wings beat him in the Stanley Cup Finals again, and again.

Say what you will, I'd love to have Avery back in a Wings sweater.



Negatory.

That's absurd. There are no Islander fans.



Not true. I know the guy.


#2075114 Retire Osgood's #30?

Posted by T.Low on 10 December 2010 - 12:21 PM

The Rafters are Sacred Red Wing Jersey grounds. More sacred than Ozzie, Shanny, and Feds. We're talking maybe once in a generation does a new jersey go up and retire. When was the last one before Stevie Y?


#2073075 Shane Doan at the trade deadline = 2011 Stanley Cup

Posted by T.Low on 04 December 2010 - 12:42 PM

Why would a playoff bound team trade their best player?



I really don't think Hudler is our best player.










:rolleyes:









Beer in mind, I enjoy blueadam's line threads. :thumbup: Keep up the good work, kid.


#2072034 Bert: (One of) the most hated athletes.

Posted by T.Low on 02 December 2010 - 08:30 PM

next game he came out chirping and playing dirty.

He wouldn't face Bert like a man which is what you gotta do sometimes.


A dirty player who made plays that could've ended other players careers had his ended. He received compensation and is fine making a living. He is also not a cripple at all. I hold nothing against Bert for what he did



You, sir, have some very good insights.

I do think his neck broke at the precise moment of head impacting the ice from Bert's one handed strength driving him into it, an instant before the pile piled on. Purely speculative, though.

Can you imagine a coach or another player walking into Moore's hospital room and saying what half the people wanted to say; "Dude wtf was your problem? Why didn't you punch the guy when you had the chance instead or turning and skating away like a *****?"


#2070267 11/28 GDT: Blue Jackets 2 at Red Wings 4

Posted by T.Low on 29 November 2010 - 05:45 AM

I missed the Filppula goal, my wife got home from grocery shopping and went into labor. We heard the last of the game just before we left for the birthing center.

We brought home a beautiful little girl that my wife named Olivia Cleary Lowell. Happy Holidays my fellow Wings fans.


#2068196 11/24 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Thrashers 5

Posted by T.Low on 24 November 2010 - 09:02 PM

It must be the stream. The screen is only showing less than half the view so you can hardly see anything; I imagine it must be very difficult for the Wings to play under those conditions. :ph34r:


#2067797 Ooops... Corey Perry

Posted by T.Low on 24 November 2010 - 11:49 AM

Saw that on NHL vids yesterday. Nice new move to add to his repertoire. Obviously still sufferring brain damage from fighting Pavel.


#2067415 Jiri Hudler Watch Thread

Posted by T.Low on 23 November 2010 - 12:00 PM

I haven't seen as much of his play this season as most of you would have, but I feel you're all being too harsh. Yes he's struggling, and I've sometimes yelled at the TV after seeing him do something stupid, but I feel like we need to give him time to re-adjust. Trading him would be absolutely disasterous because I'm certain that if a team was willing to trade for him, they'd give him consistent top 6 minutes and regular PP time. He sometimes gets that here, but if he doesn't instantly produce, coach gets frustrated and demotes him again, thus deflating his already low confidence.

Hudler is a very gifted player, he put up nearly 60 points last time he was here, obviously his slow start means that's unlikely to happen this season, but I am positive that things will turn around for him and by seasons end we'll be happy to have the little guy on the team again.



The positive aspect is that all the other boys on the team are working even harder pulling their own weight and his so that we are still winning while he get's intouch with his emotions, his self esteem, and confidence. :puke:


If you think LGW is harsh on Hudler now, just imagine how bad it would be if we had been losing.

I keep watching for him, but most of the time I don't notice him.




You don't notice Who?dler?

If this is the Juri Hudler Watch Thread, first we're going to have to find him before we can start to watch him. My friend is a retired Bloomfield Hills detective; I'll call him.
