Taken yesterday... 


You're wrong it was taken 2 days from now on July 1st.


#2617108 Pronger (contract) and Grossman to for Sam Gagner and conditional pick

Posted by wings87 on 28 June 2015 - 12:05 PM

Ha. I thought that movie was cabbage, it made me laugh.
But it sounds like you're describing the 19 saw movies, or the 15 takens.


Eh, take your pick they're all pretty bad.


#2617095 Pronger (contract) and Grossman to for Sam Gagner and conditional pick

Posted by wings87 on 28 June 2015 - 11:08 AM

So Pronger is an employee of the NHL front office while also being an NHL player under contract who just got traded while also becoming eligible for the HHOF because of the new bylaws.  That's some impressive Pronger physics. 
 
I wonder if the Coyotes will retire his jersey?  He's the best d-man they've ever had. 

A very shrewd trade.

I wonder if the NHL can get away with trading the Coyotes to Sweden.

Horrible for entertainment purposes?

More like. Sad and profitable with plenty of sequels.


#2615836 OT Changes

You had me, until you lost me at lime


Tastes like piss. Therefore fits the OT theme.


#2615830 OT Changes

Screw the figurative pissing contest. Instead have a real pissing contest at center ice. Closest to the goal wins. Also would be a great time for a beer commercial between turns...

" This contest brought to you by Miller Lite Lime, drink lime and piss the night away."


#2615337 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by wings87 on 19 June 2015 - 03:02 PM

Well Larkin can be chocolate. Mantha can be strawberry. AA can be blueberry. So many possibilities...


You want this guy to be chocolate?

He's as much chocolate as Rachel Dolezal!


#2615169 Free agents this off season

Posted by wings87 on 18 June 2015 - 11:45 PM

That was kind of my thought process on it.
The joke----> :)

(That's your face, the joke landed there.)

The comment between the two statements threw me. Oh well.

P.s. not in love with you talking about Pulkinnens stick, and then later my face.


#2615129 Free agents this off season

Posted by wings87 on 18 June 2015 - 04:34 PM


Yeah, but imagine him diving and choking all over pulkinnens stick...

That sounded bad,
But him feeding pulks would be nice.

It'd take too much for someone his age though.

When put together with the first statement, the second doesn't sound any better.


#2614540 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Posted by wings87 on 15 June 2015 - 03:55 PM

Size cannot be taught.


What's interesting is that for all the Wings drafting proficiency, they haven't mastered how to draft size properly. You've got big guys such as E, Franzen, now Mantha that play small. And then you've got Helm and Glendening who play like 7 foot monsters. It's an enigma.


#2614378 Wings open to trading Mantha and/or their 1st Round Pick

Getting OEL is as realistic as us getting Ekblad.


But we're gonna get him right? You said it's realistic... ;)


#2613544 Granato possibly renegotiating contract with Wings

Posted by wings87 on 08 June 2015 - 05:19 PM

Everyone is leaving now that Babs is gone


Not everyone... Cleary is staying.


#2613263 Time for an offer sheet?

Posted by wings87 on 05 June 2015 - 12:34 PM

Offer sheets rarely work out (see Edmonton).

P.s. Isn't it awesome that Edmonton is around to be used as an example anytime something s***ty happens? What are we going to do if they ever get good?


#2612887 The "enigmatic" Tomas Jurco: A Thread

Posted by wings87 on 02 June 2015 - 06:00 PM

I don't think you can call him enigmatic after 2 seasons. He's had 1 good year and 1 bad, that's all there is to it. With Blashill coming in he'll be used properly (scoring role, not checking). So I expect a better year from him.


#2609795 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Posted by wings87 on 22 May 2015 - 08:17 PM

 
Really? I honestly don't remember that play with Renney, and I don't remember hearing Mickey complaining about it like he did this year.


They where running that play even back when Lids was still playing. Mickey didn't complain cause they were actually good at it.


#2609419 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

It's not a hockey mecca, but don't underestimate Buffalo as a hockey city. They love them some hockey and it is evident when spending time in the city. Also remember Scotty Bowman still calls it "home" (I'm assuming besides his place in FLA), and Patty Kane (along with Foligno and T. Marchant) grew up and started their careers in the Buff. Again, it's not Toronto, DET, MTL, etc...) but they are a very good hockey town. I remember being in town a few weeks after the Wings won the cup in 1998, the Bowman family had a cook-out in their backyard open to anyone who knew (they didn't advertise the get-together in the media or anything like that, but if you knew about the cookout and where they lived, you were welcome), and the only way you knew which house was theirs was a hockey stick stuck dead center in the front yard. It was catered BBQ and the Stanley Cup was present. Pretty cool.


Not knocking Buffalo,it's just that if Babs wins in Toronto he'll be revered. If he had signed with the Sabres and won, sure the city would be happy but nowhere near as insane as Toronto would get.
