#2539091 How different things could have been

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 08 October 2014 - 02:03 PM

Geez - I feel like an old man here.

 

Don't feel bad. I remember trade rumors involving Yzerman for Lindros when Eric refused to play for the Nordiques. Yes, I'm THAT old.

Who's Greg Brady?

 

Peter and Bobby's older brother. Groovy.




#2538710 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 07 October 2014 - 10:15 AM

I wasn't happy lol ... I don't think people should hope for weiss to fail but be prepared incase he does . He hit 60 pt plateau twice playing on on a Florida team where he got top line minutes and ppl time and nothing was ever expected of him

Prior to coming here he had 4 pts in 17 games with Florida and last year he had 4 in 26 here (injury or not)
Now Babcock isn't even suiting him up , you don't think if weiss was doing so good in pre season and practice Babcock wouldn't put him in the top 2 lines ?especially with datsyuk out?

I hope weiss wakes up and gets us a 60 pt season cause we really need it , I'm just not expecting it

 

Tatar was a healthy scratch for numerous games at the beginning of last season and look how he turned out.

 

Don't judge Weiss until he has played healthy for the Wings. He may succeed; he may fail. But it's too early to tell and speculating about Babcock's preseason mind games with any player is futile.




#2538335 10/4 Final Preseason GDT: Detroit Red Wings vs Boston Bruins

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 04 October 2014 - 05:02 PM

My goal for the Wings today is for them not to suck as hard as yesterday.

 

And no injuries.

 

Bah, others beat me to it.




#2537974 Are the wings underrated?

Mike Babcock is a good coach.  Evidence of that is 2003, 2008, and 2009.  Not 2014.

Bab's apparently thought Smith was the best defenseman last night.

#2534849 Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 23 August 2014 - 07:26 PM

Datsyuk much more complete player to me. Although I can not imagine the number Federov would have put up now.

 

Have people forgotten that Fedorov played defense, scored 56 goals while winning the Selke, and often played with Shawn Burr on a TKO line shadowing the opposition's top players? Fedorov was a BEAST on both ends of the ice. He was very much a complete player.




#2533745 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 05 August 2014 - 04:57 PM

Yeah we get that, but remember two years ago. Finished 7th, beat the Ducks in 7, then went on to take the Hawks to 7 games (OT) but lost. Anything can happen in the playoffs but I'm sure you'll sit there and say 7th isn't 8th blah blah blah.

 

If by "anything can happen in the playoffs" you mean "Cindarella teams don't win the Stanley Cup," then you are correct. LA's continued success has demonstrated that the team wasn't the fluke so many claimed it was a couple of years ago.

 

Name a genuine Cinderella that has won it all in the modern NHL.




#2529786 Favorite Ken Holland Catchphrase / Quote

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 03 July 2014 - 02:07 PM

My vote: "I don't know why they're not coming here" because it demonstrates, more than any of the other quotes, just how out-of-touch Holland seems to be. The league might have passed him by.

Funny we were all super disappointed we didn't land him last year and now Philly has to beg people to take him. I think Niskanen is going to be a similar story.

 

So would that prove that our GM is even worse than we fear, seeing as how he offered Niskanen a big contract?




#2529596 When will we know about Alfie? (Legwand signed w. Sens)

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 02 July 2014 - 07:00 PM

Wait a minute, wasn't the Legwand trade supposed to be good because "he is a sure signing this offseason". Why exacly is he "good as gone"? So we really did trade Jarnkrok for a 20 game rental to get us to a first round knockout?

 

To make the playoffs and keep the streak alive. NOTE: Please don't shoot the messenger. (Hint: I'm the messenger).

 

To the OP question, when will be know about Legwand? Pretty sure we knew just as soon as he was playing on the 4th line.

I know him!  It's Ziggerwaggelitus and Figglywigbandersnatch's son.  What a lovely family.  I have to remember to send them a Christmas card this year. 

I don't think they celebrate Christmas where those names are from. :lol:




#2529526 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Favorite post of the day for both style and substance.  +100 and the keys to the city for you.

 

Wow, I'm honored. Kip and Fat Guy Maltby both like my post. :)


While all this may be true, I'd still rather be Cinderella than an ugly stepsister. :(

 

You could never be an ugly stepsister, BoS. :D




#2529489 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 02 July 2014 - 01:10 PM

Cinderella frauds occasionally make the Finals. They don't win. Cinderella teams also occasionally take a 3-1 lead on the eventual Stanley Cup champs only to be exposed in games 5, 6, and 7.

 

Don't be fooled by Cinderella. She's really a homely girl with a mop and bucket.

Toronto def shopping Cody Franson. He his a name the Wings have been linked to before. What do you guys think?

 

Only if we get rid of Franzen. I don't want to listen to Ozzie mispronounce Franzen AND Franson.
