#2056568 Class Act Organization

Posted by Bar Down on 03 November 2010 - 01:51 AM

I've been casually viewing this site for awhile but until today I never felt the need to share my opinion. Today, however, was different. My brother was diagnosed with leukemia while playing junior hockey in Saskatchewan earlier this year and he had a bone marrow transplant a couple months ago in Calgary (he's had to live there for the last several months due to the lack of facilities in Sask.). We have been die-hard Red Wings fans since we were really young and it's been a dream of ours to someday watch a game at the Joe but today he experienced the next best thing. Mike Babcock gave him a call this morning and invited him to the Wings practice in Calgary and invited him to meet all of the Wings. Every single Red Wing took the time to not only introduce themselves but genuinely get to know him. He was encouraged by Dats and Zets to stick around for practice prep and to come back after practice for some autographs. Ken Holland offered him tickets for tomorrow's game and Babs invited him back tomorrow to once again hang out with the Wings after their morning skate. For a kid who's been through a lot in recent months, he was on cloud nine today. The Wings have always been my favorite team but today they turned it up a notch. I was absolutely blown away by everything today and I think it's safe to say we all cheer for one of the classiest organizations in the NHL .

MacDonald is not better than Osgood. No way.

#2052606 Teemu Selanne whining

Posted by Original-Six on 25 October 2010 - 06:57 PM

I remember how you guyseveryone around the league, including some Pens fans cried and complained about how dirty it was when Cooke murdered Savard. Now that your dirty a$$ player hit someone with a clean hit you I will immediately pretend like it wasn't a shoulder because im a Wings hater thats still butthurt over the 2008 SCF loss.. I'm not saying it was ---- Just saying --- Your guys double standards are entertaining to say the least. I have no clue what im talking about. I just started to follow hockey in 2007 lol.

Anyway ---- Gunna be fun to see the rubber match this year. the Pens have another defensive breakdown in the playoffs.

Pens in 6P.S i want to marry Crosby someday.




#2051881 10/23 GDT: Ducks 4 at Red Wings 5

Please, let's not talk about the Red Wings getting an exciting, last-minute victory tonight. Because then we won't be able to SETTLE ONCE AND FOR ALL WHETHER THE SELANNE GOAL WAS A GREAT SHOT BY AN ELITE FORWARD OR A SOFT GOAL ALLOWED ON A BAD NIGHT FROM THE GOALTENDER. So let's not let the outcome of the hockey game, or anything else that happened during it, encroach on that epic debate.

Noticed this as well. Poor Lilja.


He got deked by the master, no shame in that.

Unless you're Marty Turco. Then it's just hilarious.

As long as our first line and second line double shift and Lidstrom quadruple shifts and give Howard a chastity belt for his five hole problem, we should be fine =]

Detroit Red Wings: Making Anaheim fans rage since 2009.

How did Howard have a rough game?


Howard had some good saves and was completely hung out to dry by his defense, but when the D finally got their heads out of their asses he lets in a brutal go-ahead goal.

He also seemed to be way too out of position in the third period. Didn't end up costing him but there were a few scary points in the game.

He didn't have a "horrible" game, but it wasn't that great, either. Either way we got the two points.

Now that is what we call a clutch goal. The equivalent of a walk-off HR.

Appreciate that goal, gang. There's only one Datsyuk in the league.

Maybe it was a Halloween promotion: if you came dressed up as an empty seat, your ticket was half price.


#2050878 "Why I hate this obnoxious hockey team"

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 22 October 2010 - 05:16 PM

That was the worst hate article I've ever read. A Blackhawks fan could do much better than this garbage.


Yeah, the fact that it's a hate article doesn't bother me, but what does is that her arguments are logically unsound, and she doesn't even try to back them up (although if you're just flat-out wrong, it would be kind of hard to find examples to support your argument). Heck, I could probably write a better article about why other fans hate us, really.

My favorite part is the "Red Wings are arrogant" line. Come the eff on. I can't think of ANY current players who act cocky. I can think of a lot of reasons other fans don't like our players - Homer is a pain in the butt (or rather his butt is a pain in your face), Bertuzzi is a thug, etc. - but arrogant?! Yeah, that Lidstrom, man, he really talks a lot of crap about other teams, doesn't he? :rolleyes: I can think of two whole players in recent history who might be said to have inflated egos: Fedorov and Avery, and Avery got shown the door for that exact reason. Plus, we Wings fans get to share Avery's "legacy" with the Stars, which doesn't exactly help the author one-up us.

Now, I do heartily agree that we FANS are a bunch of arrogant bastards - as The Chief would say, we've got SWAGGER, *******! We're probably obnoxious at times, too. However, I absolutely 100% disagree that we are some of the least knowledgeable hockey fans out there...if she ever visited this forum she'd know she was wrong. Yeah, there are a couple of yokels here like me, but for the most part I've never met a more informed bunch of people all in one place, period.


#2049850 Rypien suspended 6 games

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 20 October 2010 - 11:40 PM

Lame that the guy is suing, but Rypien deserves a suspension. The leagus is still trying to establish itself as a major pro sport. Crap like this makes it look like professional wrestling.

The fact that ESPN decides to cover nothing but these types of incidents doesn't help..


#2050084 5 reasons to Love/Hate the Red Wings

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 October 2010 - 05:58 PM

I was waiting for a reason to hate the Wings to be 'They got over a million fans at their parade, we only got 10,000... WAH!'

I agree the Joe is old, but hate the team because we out-marketed Disney and copyrighted Hockeytown? Hate us because of 2002? I am sick of hearing that the Wings "bought" the Cup back then...

Hasek we traded for, as a matter of fact a 30 goal scorer and a first round pick.

Brett Hull, is it our fault he took less money to come here? Hell we didn't even sign him until August 22nd of 2001, nearly 2 months after UFA day...

Robitaille, NOBODY wanted, NOT EVEN LA! (much like Modano this year!)

Olausson, again NOBODY ELSE WAS INTERESTED IN HIM!!!

Chelios we traded Anders Ericsson and a first round pick for WAAAAAAY back in 1999.

Larionov was on this team for years...

Lidstrom, Yzerman, Fedorov, ALL DRAFT PICKS!

Shanahan was traded for in 1996 for Keith Primeau and Paul Coffey AND a first round pick!

Jesus H! Now what part of that says we just pulled a New York Yankee's and threw a ton of money at a bunch of free agents and BOUGHT the Stanley Cup!!!?!?!?!?

Pure Envy is all it is.... Hate the Wings because they are your rivals, simple. Forget all the other BS excuses and rationalizations!
