#2153297 Speaking of Playing Through Pain...

Posted by Nev on 19 April 2011 - 12:26 AM

The defining image of the 2002 cup run isn't Lidstroms slapper from centre ice to turn the Vancouver series. Its not Roy's statue of liberty, nor his being pulled from the Joe in game 7. Its not Darren McCarty's hat-trick and high-fiving his son in the tunnel. Its not the grind line getting us going in game 2 of the finals. Its not Larionov scoring in pentatriple overtime. Its not Shannys empty netter in game 5.

The defining image of the 2002 cup run is Steve Yzerman having to use his stick as a lever to help him back back onto he feet every single time he was knocked to the ice.

It's embarrassing reading your ignorant responses.

Clearly none of you are business majors.




To be fair, you are right, I did Chemistry.


#2139436 3/30 GDT: St. Louis Rams 10 at Detroit Lions 3

Wow, one bad game and the bandwagon Wings fans are jumping off. Please delete your account off the site and go join the ranks of the Canucks. Some members on this site are an absolute embarrassment to real Wings fans who back their team.


This was a defensive performance 3 years in the making. 2009 we got bailed out by our powerhouse offence night after night. 2010 we blamed it on injuries. This season has got progressively worse defence wise. The continuous mistakes, the lack of hustle, intesity and willingness to sacrifice from everyone, forwards to defence, Lidstrom to Ericsson, coupled with goaltending that oscilates between average and mediocre have all built up to this. This is not an overnight phenomena, and I don't see it being fixed overnight on the day the playoff start.


#2136121 Youngsters ditching the visors

Posted by Nev on 26 March 2011 - 12:18 PM

:ph34r:



Add Murray to the list with Draper, Clearly, Lidstrom and Yzerman of players who decided to wear facial protection AFTER sustaining serious facial injuries. He's right, hockey players ARE idiots, there's so much macho BS in hockey around the wearing of visors, that only soft euros, frenchies and ******* wear them. The Don Cherry mindset. As someone who is required to wear eye protection all day as part of his job, I find the attitude baffling.


#2132195 Whats your favorite "BAD" contract right now?

Posted by Nev on 19 March 2011 - 04:15 AM

Lol at the knee jerkers, you guys are ridiculous.

The guy has one slump and everyone questions his contract (which is pretty reasonable for what he gives). Guess you guys are forgetting how many goals he has this year (more than anyone else on the team, including guys who are paid far more), and his past 3 playoff performances.

Thank god our management isn't as blind as some of the posters here.


Not a knee-jerk at all. I along with several others expressed disapointment with the length of the contract at the time, he basically got a Franchise Player contract as a reward for 27 and 34 goal seasons - at the age of 29. Especially for a player who is prone to floating for large periods of time, whatever happened to "The Mule?"

The money is a bit meh, $4m for a 30 goal scorer is OK I guess. The only good thing about the contract is its structure, so he can retire/be bought out without giving us a punishing cap hit.

As for Rafalski, I've never regarded his contract as the albatross some do. It seemed like a lot at the time, but he was a key, key component of our 2008 cup, part of the "Big 5" that Babcock would ice against the oppositions top line, and just for that I regard his contract as worth it. So by the same token if Franzen scores 12 goals in the playoffs and leads us to the Cup I guess I can forgive him :)

When Johan Franzen is lazy, he sucks.


#2130084 Ville Leino Scores Hat Trick

Posted by Nev on 14 March 2011 - 01:30 AM

Everyone laying the hate on Leino, have you ever stopped to consider he and Philly is only what we've done with Cleary and Miller and Eaves? Others teams cast-offs that have made it as players with us. Might be because they found a system that suited them, might be because they were in last chance saloon and finally "got it". It doesn't matter.

Pavel Datsyuk....saving careers and LGW's opinions on their favorite whipping boys. He really is MAGICAL!!! :thumbup:


Scientist call this phenomena the Lidstrom-Dandenault Effect.

Looked really good today, working his little legs off.


#2112906 2/7 GDT: Rangers 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by Nev on 08 February 2011 - 04:23 AM

He is a purveyor of unreality. Watching him sort of hang back on the backcheck, then come out of nowhere to steal the puck, like he knew what was happening all along, like it was all planned out ahead of time... just blows my mind.

He can see things before they happen......It is a Jedi trait.


#2109387 Observations from March 26th, 1997

Posted by Nev on 03 February 2011 - 03:25 AM

Well, that was an awesome watch last night :thumbup:

Loved seeing Maltby + Draper in their prime, after all the hate thats been spewed on this forum towards them the last few years, to see them skating, hitting and agitating was a joy.

And lulz at the Ward - Severyn fight, when Severyn loses his jersey you can actually see the fear in Ward's eyes "Oh F*&k! I'm gunna get my face pounded! :scared: ". Luckily for him Devorski intervened, cos Severyn was in no mood for mercy :ph34r:
