#2535183 Ice Bucket ALS Challenge: Bettman edition

Posted by T.Low on 29 August 2014 - 02:48 PM

I know you wouldn't want this thread to be about you, but how you doing anyway man?  I know its been a while since you were diagnosed.

Wow, thanks for asking.

I'm doing great. I can still hold my kids, play with them in the pool, and zipline with them at Whistler.

My parents and my brothers family joined us for a week in San Diego, then all flew to our home in Washington. We just took them to Whistler where we all, including my 75 yr old mumsy, did the longest tallest zip line in North America . (The kids did the bobsled run too, along with my wife)

My 13 yr old niece is putting together a little vacation vid, check it out (the older kids are my nephew and nieces, young one is Olivia , Lilja seemed to be sleeping a lot)





AND my life long friend from growing up in Michigan did an awesome Ice Bucket Challenge vid (he's Air Force) :




#2534966 Trial date set in Steve Moore’s lawsuit against Todd Bertuzzi

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 26 August 2014 - 08:02 PM

I hope Moore wins as big as possible headaches are horrible concussions headaches are even worse and what Bert did at least to me could be classified as criminal. The guy has barely done any interviews and when he does them the lights are still dim. Some mentioned that Bert would have to live with only of 20 percent of his money do what? The guy ended someone's careerin hockey and life.so yeah go Moore

 

If that were the case then Matt Cooke should be in jail.




#2534692 The Pavel Datsyuk Show

Just watched all 69 minutes and 14 seconds of this at work. I'll blame you SOW when I'm unemployed.




#2534848 Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 August 2014 - 06:59 PM

Here's a good, long thread from HFboards back in 2012, talking about Datsyuk's HOF status.  

 

http://hfboards.hock...d.php?t=1121269

 

 

I think he gets in.  If 1,000 points is the criteria, there won't be many guys making the HOF after Crosby, Ovechkin and Malkin retire.  How many 1,000 point players do you think the future generations will produce?  Not much I think.  Doesn't mean there won't be guys making the Hall of Fame anymore.

#2534757 Sharks enter training camp with no C or A's

They also did this to Marleau in favor of Thornton. Maybe they should figure out something else instead of killing morale within their own club.

UGH. I hate what this re-signing has done to people's (myself included) perception of Cleary. That video just made me want to hug him and beg him to retire.

Also, did anyone else notice he referred to himself as "Danny?" :lol:

I HATE the signing, but after watching tons of Wings videos this summer, I must say if Cleary was as good a player as he is a person, he would win the Hart Trophy this season.  I truly hope he proves us all wrong and has a bounce back season. 

 

Bettman is still the Anti-Christ.  Nothing that man does at this point can undo the wrongs that happened under his rule.

Dan Cleary accepted the challenge.  I like that he put up the info for donating online.  I haven't seen anyone do that yet.

#2534230 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by Jesusberg on 14 August 2014 - 10:48 AM

I honestly don't think the guy is a bad general manager - he's proven just the opposite over the years. I just think some aspects of the game have passed him by - namely making moves and having a good relationship with other general managers.

That being said, results are results. Regardless of his intentions, Holland hasn't made too many impact moves of late. The ones he's tried to make haven't turned out well. I'm not overly thrilled with the term, but I guess we'll see how it goes. Bonus is if this gets Babs to sign on for some term, otherwise it's kind of "meh" for me.




#2534213 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 14 August 2014 - 09:22 AM

Honestly, I'm disappointed.  

 

Holland has pretty clearly run out of ideas these last few seasons, so I don't have a lot of hope for significant changes to rebuild the franchise over the next 4 years.  

 

Who knows though. Maybe he'll finally realize the crap he's done lately isn't working? Maybe??  

 

 

If I were Babcock I'd start looking to other teams.




#2534069 Helmer: First one to get a herniated disc in the new Season?

Posted by AtlantaHotWings on 12 August 2014 - 08:16 AM

Well the old way was just getting him hurt so why not try a different training trick?

 

 

Or we can see it as he is healthy and that's a good thing(trying to be positive)




#2533974 Greatest Wings game ever

Posted by Copenhagen848 on 10 August 2014 - 02:32 PM

March 26, 1997.  The most exciting sporting event I've ever watched.  I can't imagine a game ever topping that one for me.  My wife got me the "Sweet Revenge" poster framed and signed by McCarty for me as a wedding present.




#2533932 Greatest Wings game ever

Posted by wings4thecup06 on 09 August 2014 - 07:41 AM

Hockey withdrawal symptoms have reached a point of catastrophy. To alleviate these symptoms I'm watching the entire 97 cup run and will spend most of September watching the 98 run also.

 

This got me thinking. If you could name one Wings game that you saw that was in your opinion the greatest game you've ever seen, what would it be?

 

For me it's game 6 2002 WCF vs the Avalanche because it just demonstrated just how dominant Hasek really was and Roy's gaffe was such a beautiful moment. Even better that it virtually cost the Avs another shot at the cup. I just remember being so elated with joy after seeing us stick it to Colorado. That series and that rivalry had so much passion and intensity and I can still hear Gary Thorne's voice as Shanny put the puck past a showboating Roy.

 

What about anyone else?




#2533113 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by Echolalia on 28 July 2014 - 10:02 AM

Hmm I guess my predictions will be:

 

Smith still has a few brain-farts, but he becomes a LGW favorite this season.  Babs gives him an opportunity on the power play, and he doesn't give it up.

Cleary plays 10 games and is benched for the rest of the season.  He then finally calls it a career.

Weiss plays 50-60 games, looks much better than he did last year, but still not as good as he could be (and LGW expects).  He becomes the new whipping boy.

Howard has top 10 stats, half of LGW still argues that he's average.

Gustavsson is often injured, and when he plays he is out of position, loses sight of the puck, fumbles the puck in the crease, and will somehow still win us games.

Mrazek will play 10-15 games for the Wings this season, and look good in every game.

Wings will go on a 3 game losing streak, LGW will implode. 

Wings will go on a 3 game winning streak, LGW will believe this team is as good as the 2002 team.
