#2223324 NHL and steroids according to Laraque

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 05 November 2011 - 10:58 PM

NHL has a problem with performance-enhancing drugs.

Quote from Laraque:


Anyone know who he could be talking about?

I have no doubt in my mind that some NHL players take performance enhancing drugs. Hell I always thought Lapointe did.


I think that without a doubt there must be players that do, but I don't think you'd ever be able find enough evidence just looking at the stats for olympic years to say for sure that this player does and this player doesn't.

touchy subject?


I think the taking of Cialis implies that no matter how touchy you get with the subject, there are no results.


#2218982 A Goalie is Needed

I remember when I had 16 posts


If his 17th post is anything like his 16th then someone should do us a favour and make sure he doesn't get an 18th.


#2218977 A Goalie is Needed

The Wings are now destined to miss the playoffs because Howard is a new father? :blink: Just when you think you've heard of everything.

The problem with your question is that at the moment there are no unsigned goalies left on the market that are better than Howard, with or without sleep. So the only option to make your wish come true is a trade. While we've got plenty of cap space, we're already at the roster limit, so we'd have to either waive a player if trading only picks/prospects, or make a player-for-player trade. Who exactly off of this roster would you send away? (And dont say Howard. If he's going to be terrible because of lack of sleep, then no team in the league will want to trade their solid goalie for a "sleepy" goalie).


No, no, no. Not only is Howard a new father, but apparently Conklin is IMPOTENT! We're doomed! :scared:


#2211869 Brunnstrom is signed.

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 03 October 2011 - 01:19 PM

Him and Nyquist were probably the two most impressive players that I noticed at camp. And it's really a no-loss situation. If he plays great then the Wings got a great deal and if he tanks then waive him and ship him off to GR or let someone else deal with him if they want to claim him. :thumbup:


#2210469 9/28 Exhibition GDT: Red Wings at Chicago Blackhawks

Ericsson had an A on his jersey. What is that supposed to stand for?

This should be fun.


That wasn't an "A." They just stitched the Pylon symbol on upside down to make him feel more important.


#2210457 9/28 Exhibition GDT: Red Wings at Chicago Blackhawks

I don't think Brendan's intent was to hit him in the head, Ben just tried to slip by him and he happened to catch him. This being said I still believe Smith gets suspended. The hit was dangerous, and Smith is a low impact guy that can be suspended to set an example to other players. I would also guess that getting suspended will all but end Smith's chances of making the Wings' roster this year, barring injury, unless he really comes back flying to start the year.


#2209187 9/23 Exhibition GDT: Philadelphia Flyers 3 at Red Wings 1

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 23 September 2011 - 12:58 PM

Never saw any links from you, but I will be looking this time. I was really pissed that I was settling on the flyers broadcasting it and then them locking me out geographically. I tried every link I could find and got zilcho.

A password pm would be appreciated.


According to the Flyers the webcast is limited geographically due to NHL policy.. Which is completely stupid imo, why wouldn't you want to make hockey available to everyone who wants to see it if you're trying to grow the sport.

It's been a long summer.

My new Wings' tattoo is all healed up.

Drop The Puck.

He still can't take a punch like Ozzy.




#2208263 Yet another lawsuit filed against Bert

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 20 September 2011 - 10:34 AM

Yeah i agree.just break the guys neck and move on :rolleyes: Moore was only a fourth line player so that makes him expendable.I hope Moore wins his settlement,i would be one happy guy :hehe:


I think you missed his point there. The point wasn't that Moore was expendable, the point is that he almost certainly wouldn't have made 38 million dollars as a player.

So when you say you would be happy if Moore won, do you mean if he is awarded the full 40 million? You really believe Bertuzzi should be paying out of his own pocket for likely the rest of his life for a one time lapse of judgement in a heated situation after already serving his original punishment?


#2208221 Fabian Brunnstrom

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 19 September 2011 - 11:31 PM

I don't see why we would need Brunnstrom for that. It's a pretty widely accepted fact around LGW that if Hudler were to play on Datsyuk's wing for the entire season he would also put up 35 goals. :ph34r:


#2206426 Eklund is an idiot

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 06 September 2011 - 04:41 PM

It's hard not to though, out of morbid curiousity.

Getting hockey info from Eklund is like reading The Onion to get your daily news.


Only funnier and less accurate.


#2205876 Red Wings Sponsor?

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 01 September 2011 - 03:28 PM

Yup, I sat through the Amway presentation once because I didn't know what was coming. My roommate's parents had gotten her into it and she had to bring in so many new prospects according to the "system" or she wasn't following it. I said I'd give it a listen, just to help her out. Freaky.

I'm really not keen on the Red Wings being associated with them, but I guess everyone needs a cash cow.

Now if they can get 5 other teams to agree to the branding, and those teams get 5 teams...


So.. what you're saying is.. we're all going to be rich! :yowza:


#2204607 Should Homer Still Be On the Top Line?

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 20 August 2011 - 01:22 PM

I feel like Hudler could probably put up about 70 points playing with Datsyuk on the 1st line.. :ph34r:

Just kidding.

I have to think Holmstrom will get some first line minutes barring any moves before the season. But I could see it ending up being a rotation for most of the season unless someone really steps up and fills the role.
