#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

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.


#2619686 Over/Under for Larkin's time as a Red Wing in 15/16

*snickers* suckers!


You won't be laughing when it's bathroom time.

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

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.


#2619622 Over/Under for Larkin's time as a Red Wing in 15/16

So rushing a young promising center instead of letting him develop at his own pace is less important than maybe keeping the streak alive and having another first round exit?

I agree on Larkin, completely disagree on the other point.
I just wish everyone would stop referencing the first round exits. It's not as if the team got manhandled and embarrassed. The past 2 years we went to a game 7 and should have won both series. Yes, the team has obvious weaknesses, but they're not as far away as some believe.


#2619523 Tarasenko re-signs with the Blues (60 mill/8 years)

Posted by wings87 on 07 July 2015 - 07:59 PM

I can see where you're coming from... but those contracts are what keep bringing about the lockouts, which it seems like were right back on track for the next one once this CBA expires.
So much so that people are laying out contracts preparing for the next one, like tarasenkos dropping to 5m for the year the cbas up.
Its all crazy.


You're right it's a crazy pointless system. Since after 2 lockouts, the cap is now over 70 mil. In several years we are ones again going to look for something to watch in the winter, while the owners jerk each other off.


#2618375 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

Posted by wings87 on 01 July 2015 - 04:31 PM

Yeah it's 3 mil but it's only a 1 year deal. Let's not make it seem like Holland has lost his mind.


#2618113 Free agents this off season

Posted by wings87 on 01 July 2015 - 02:33 PM

Good! Maybe it will help get some of the ridiculous contracts of the past back under control....


No such luck, I'm sure the contracts will still be ridiculous. Just less so...
