#2624165 Curtis Glencross regrets taking hometown discount

Posted by wings87 on 30 August 2015 - 12:37 PM

Athletes should cash in when they get a chance, since injuries can strike at any moment. Which is the reason I'm never offended when a player leaves for another team. On the flip side if Glencross played better he wouldn't have a problem finding a decent deal, the guy's only 32.

#2622614 Non-Wings You've Grown to Like

Posted by wings87 on 10 August 2015 - 12:18 AM

I absolutely hated Tootoo, but now that he played for the Wings. I actually grew to like him quite a bit. I also feel bad for the raw deal he got with the Wings.

#2622249 Which prospect will have the best nhl career

Posted by wings87 on 04 August 2015 - 12:52 PM

I seen aa play a few years back when he was in barrie and was really impressed with him, started looking for talk on him which led me to this site.

So... We have AA to blame for you polluting our presence? ;)

#2622106 Who is the better player Zetterberg or Toews. Prime vs. Present

Posted by wings87 on 02 August 2015 - 09:12 PM

There seems to be an over reliance on points in this thread, and while points are a good indication of a players success they don't tell the whole story. Say Franzen scores 30 goals but has stretches where he disappears for 15 games at a time. Is he as good as a player that scores 30 goals, but is constantly in the game contributing? I will say this that I initially thought Towes and Z where more similar in their prime, but it does look like Z was a superior player. Though after all the injuries, points not withstanding, at present Toews is a better all around player.

#2621709 Stadium series Wings vs Avs 2016!

Posted by wings87 on 28 July 2015 - 02:35 PM

The only thing that interests me in this game is beating Roy one more time. I don't care if happens in an outdoor stadium or in a broom closet.

If our Henrik  were a netminder - he'd never wear a goalie mask since his Viking-Warrior like beard would be more than adequate.

I see a Mcgrattan like Zetterberg thread popping up in our future.

#2620708 Lovable Dan Cleary update thread

Posted by wings87 on 16 July 2015 - 01:14 PM

This isn't loyalty anymore. it has crossed into the obsession area. Kind of like when parents give their adult children money out of 'love" then the children use the money for destructive behavior.

It's nothing like that at all. I get what you're trying to say, but that analogy doesn't work.

#2620683 Lovable Dan Cleary update thread

Posted by wings87 on 16 July 2015 - 10:35 AM

Cleary isn't gonna be on the roster, do we really care how much money he's making? He also didn't stop any young guys from playing last year. I'm over the Holland/Cleary thing, plus after 2 years the jokes have gotten old and frankly kinda lazy. As far as loyalty goes, the Wings have always been loyal to their guys. I wouldn't be surprised if part of the reason Holland wants Cleary in GR is to learn the coaching aspect of the game, and join the GR staff next year.

#2620457 Ryan O’Reilly Charged With Impaired Driving

All joking aside. Drinking and driving is a serious and dangerous activity. Let's hope that the punishment and public embarrassment is enough to deter him from doing it in the future.

#2620449 Brian McGrattan

Children look to the left- in the cage next to the lion you will find Brian McGrattan a rare and almost mythical creature. Not unlike a unicorn, with giant balls the size of anvils and the strength of 10 men. This poor soul couldn't survive in the wild due to a lack of prey. So the humane society relocated him to Anaheim in an effort to save this rare species by mating him with Tim Jackman. If all goes according to plan, the world will ones again be populated by these magnificent beasts.

What was he impaired on? Maple syrup?

Mcgrattan heard the call of the wild, unfortunately for the wild he responded.

I'll bet you $50 I can't swallow a tablespoon of cinnamon

I'll bet you a tablespoon of cinnamon you can't swallow $50.

#2619640 Over/Under for Larkin's time as a Red Wing in 15/16

Posted by wings87 on 08 July 2015 - 02:18 PM

Last year this team got embarrassed by Boston, this year they were better but after watching Stanley Cup playoffs is obvious that the Wings are far away from cup contention. Tampa will only get better and the West is well just loaded.

Anyhow just don't rush Mantha, Larkin and hope that Pasha can stay healthy.

They lost to Boston yes, but they didn't get embarrassed. Other then a few empty net goals and 1 really bad game the series was close. Tampa is good, they should continue to progress. It's also possible some players had career years, and will take a step back,and as always injuries happen. My point being is that a lot factors into a franchises continued success. Wings at the moment are upper middle of the pack with room to grow, it's not all so bleak.

Other then that, if Mantha and Larkin are ready they should play if not let them continue to develop.
