#2578259 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by number9 on 04 March 2015 - 01:58 PM

Watching the Maple Leafs lately has got me thinking quite a bit about wildlife documentaries.  I feel the same as those cameramen must feel when they follow around the water buffalo recently bitten by a komodo dragon.  You know he's poisoned.  You know he's dying.  You know the end result.  Even if they don't.  This is only going to get uglier between now and the draft, when (mercifully) the final agonizing death throes should end. 


This year has been rough, as well as the 45 before it, but I think next year is the one for them.


#2577988 What's with the "giving players hamster names" obsession?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 03 March 2015 - 01:52 PM

Soooo you don't like posts like this then...lol It still hurts to read...

 

 

I hate Franzen anyway, and I especially hate him on the top line.  Nyke should be there and that is where I am starting him.

 

Nyke - Dats - Z

Weiss - Leggy - Alfie

Fish - Tinky - Abby

Franzine - Barbie - Miller

(Andy - Ferraro - Dirty Harry)

 

Kronner Big E

Smitty - UFA (Morris)

Diesel - UFA (Mitchell)

Laser

 

Ugh (Howard)

Vokoun

 

That's 24 players with Glenny and Jurx stating GR.  Trading Kindl (no so) Fire and Almost Almqvist for a couple of picks.  If you feel the pinch of a lower cap, then Andy can be packaged as well, or maybe sign bit cheaper D-man instead of one of Mitchell or Morris. Unless you'd want to roll the dice on Marchenko and only sign Morris.

 

This was a great rant...lol

 

Not only do I log onto LGW at least once per day and have never heard Callahan referred to as Dirty Harry, but LGW isn't meant to cater exclusively to hardcore forum posters. Nicknames are supposed to make it easier to discuss the team, not to prove how funny and clever you are. Making up nicknames that no one else uses is obnoxious and unnecessary. Watch...

 

It looks like Yellow Mustard is going to miss some time after catching that elbow last night against the Sabres. Its really bad timing too, because our defense already thin with Big Poppa out with a concussion and Bandit serving his 5 game suspension. I would say this forces us to call up someone from GR, most likely Billy the Kid or The Player Formerly Known As Steve. We might be in trouble on the back end until we get some regulars back, since this leaves the Boogeyman as our #1 defenseman. And you know what that means!!!!

 

Boogeyman - Hot Topic

Heebie Jeebies - Dances with Wolves

My Little Pony - Agent Orange

~&~ (The Player Formerly Known As Steve)

You can all thank me now.  I muted the TV and went back to work.  The Wings kicked it into high gear the minute I did that.  You're welcome.

 

SO satisfying to beat a team that thinks going into d-bag mode is going to help them.

Final score.




#2575748 Anaheim Deja Vu

Posted by captain2005 on 28 February 2015 - 12:53 AM

This made me feel a bit better about the team. Anaheim just did the same thing they did to us to the Kings. Down by two, and scored three in the third. Unlike us though, the Kings couldn't tie it up and get a point, Anaheim just potted the empty netter. Makes me feel all warm inside could be the Rye though.

 

All in all, win or lose tomorrow against Nashville I'm happy with how they played. I kept hearing doom and gloom, and if they could just break 500 against the other teams on this road trip we would be happy. They might have been ugly wins, mostly come from behind, but I am almost more thrilled by that. The fact that they never act like they are out of the game.

 

Beating Chicago was too sweet, especially in shoot out like they did. Somehow working their way back into the Dallas game. Sucks to lose to Anaheim, but they are a great game, and if anything the 40 minutes of dominance made me thrilled, losing to LA, on a six game win streak sucks, but they are a dangerous team and it's not like the Wings were manhandled. And then to come from behind against the Sharks.

 

I feel good about this team, and even more about the future seasons. Should just be up from here. I like our team, I like our Goalie (sorry Howard haters, he's a good man) and I love Red Wings hockey.

 

Sorry for the rant, just started watching two seasons ago. Last year was super stressful. Good year to get into it but more frustrations than this year. This year has felt great. I am like the only Red Wings fan in my circle (slowly converting my Dad and Girlfriend, Dog is already on board) so this is a good support group for me most times. I can't believe I never watched hockey before, but damn it what a sport. I mostly love it so much because this god damn team. Thank you for your time one and all.

 

 




#2575712 Red Wings Road Fans Appreciation

Posted by SDavis35 on 27 February 2015 - 08:12 PM

I'm not sure if it was just because we only get one game in the West coast cities, or if our fans were just really into games lately, but I've noticed an awesome trend of some great road crowds this past month and more. Just wanted to say I love hearing the crowd cheer for us at road games, specifically Dallas, Arizona, Colorado and even last night was a pretty good road cheer. Great to be a part of such an enthusiastic fanbase!

We were at the game last night!  There was SO much red in the arena!  And it's awesome when the winning-energy continues after the game and all the Wings fans are high-fiving and chanting "Let's Go Red Wings!" as everyone files out.  A lot of the Avs fans left a few minutes early, so it seemed like it was just a Wings crowd filing out at the end.  Awesome atmosphere!  Awesome win!

 

Love my Wings!

The dads (and several thousand Wings fans) celebrate Abdelkader's goal.

We kicked some tires and realized that we did, in fact, *actually* like our team.
