#2185512 Dollars and Sense

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 15 June 2011 - 03:17 PM

I've got a board i post on for pretty much every michigan sports team - wings, lions, pistons, tigers, uofm, etc. And I'm obviously not speaking for EVERYONE here...but...

This is BY FAR the MOST BITTER message board in all of Michigan sports. And it's not just responses to my posts. It's everywhere. 90% of the content I see posted here is b****ing and whining. I don't think I've ever - in three years - seen an optimistic thread here (that wasn't obvious, ala 'we love pav,' 'jimmy was great in that shutout'). If someone is ballsy enough to be optimistic, he gets completely ripped to shreds.

Isn't it ironic that the best team in the area, by far, has the most bitter fans? You're all just a bunch of hockey brats if you ask me. None of you have your own ideas. And there's nothing any of you enjoy more than shooting down others' ideas...or b****ing about the players...the coaches...the executives...

It's really pretty unreal. Bitter and pathetic people.



Oh, we all have our own ideas, we just don't make a new lines thread everytime we have one.


#2185320 Babcock Interview + Jagr to Detroit Rumor

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 15 June 2011 - 10:25 AM

Jagr definitely wouldn't be my first choice, but AT THE RIGHT PRICE.. and ONLY at the right price, he could be a decent top-6 plug for a year given the not-so-strong free agent pool this year.. then next year take that money and sign someone better long term..


#2183370 10/11 Hockeyfights.com awards voting...

Not really a huge issue but its a little slow around here and I figure we could use another enforcer thread as opposed to a line thread.

Anyways, Wings currently have a HUGE lead,almost 85% of the current votes, for the worst enforcing team in the league against Nashville, Phoenix, Tampa Bay and Carolina..

I am gonna say the number is slightly thrown off by the overwhelming Wings hatred that is found on Hockeyfights.com, but is it true? I know the Wings dont have any real "enforcers" but I don't think that they are the worst enforcing team in the league just because they have the least overall fights.. I mean it's not very often you would see this team get pushed around this year..

Anyways.. guess the only real questions are.. do you think it's true? And if it is, is it a huge concern going forward?

#2176453 Sharks Accuse Canucks of Diving

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 17 May 2011 - 11:11 AM

I dont see an actual article on TSN about it but they have the video posted on the main TSN NHL page.

Anyways, I guess it's not as much fun when you start playing against a team who dives as much as you do.


#2175859 Modano

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 15 May 2011 - 01:04 PM

Did you know that, despite the fact Filppula has played second line (or even first line at times) for years now, Hudler has only four fewer points in his NHL career in 33 fewer games?

He scored ten points in his first 33 games this season, and he scored 23 points in his last 33 games.

Just saying.


For your information, I did know that. I was referring to this season, ya know, the one where Modano played for the WIngs. Since this thread is kinda supposed to be about him..

If you wanna base the argument on career numbers than I would have to say that Modano deserved a spot on the team above quite a few guys.

#2163634 WCSF Game 2 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Sharks 2

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 01 May 2011 - 05:13 PM

A beaten down Kings team managed to light Niemi up, the Wings can barely come up with 2 goals on him in 2 games. I'm gonna try to avoid any sort of panic mode until I see the result of game 3, but you would reallyf****** think the Wings would eventually get tired of being embarassed by a bunch of supposed playoff chokers. :angry:

#2160728 Boston Announcer Does it Again....

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 29 April 2011 - 05:44 PM

I'm not sure what his name is and I don't have the time/give-a-damn to look up his name, but we all know Boston's TV announcer to be one of the worst EVER. The often over-dramatic, always ignorant homer is laughable to hear in the background of Bruins highlights. But it gets worse....

http://www.collegehumor.com/video/6495791/hockey-announcer-speaks-his-mind

Also, he looks like a much bigger weasel than his voice suggests.


I literally watched that 3 times.. and I have still got no idea what he was talking about. :huh:


#2156770 NHL DRW Awards for Round One.

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 23 April 2011 - 04:35 PM

Hart Trophy: Darren Helm. (I only sway towards Helm instead of Dats because really Dats was expected to be the force in this series with Z out, but I dont think anyone expected Helm to dominate the entire Coyotes team like he did.)

Lady Byng: Brian Rafalski

Vezina: Evgeni Naba... wait.. Jimmy Howard.

Norris: Kronwall

Bill Masterton: Ruslan Salei

Ted Lindsay: Darren Helm

Jack Adams: Jim Bedard

Best Moment: Franzen returning to the bench with his face mangled.

Worst Moment: Any time I saw Jovo trying to be a bad ass with his cage on.
