#2526974 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by Jasper84 on 29 June 2014 - 03:30 PM

I mostly lurk in the offseason, but I do enjoy hearing what you have to share. Don't let others get you down. BoS said it well. I understand you can't divulge your source, so I'm not going to take a shot at you and instead be grateful to hear it during a slow summer.

You are nowhere near the same camp as Eklund or hockeyinsiderr in terms of throwing mass quantities of BS, so I don't get the hostility from some. You have more than proved your worth as a contributor to this board.

 

I agree with this. I happen to like hearing what he has to say, and I don't expect him to reveal his source.  True or not, it makes me come read the forums in the off season because it makes me hopeful that we're picking someone up, so I appreciate that he posts it on here. I find it funny though that there are so many people on here that get butt hurt over it. For crying out loud people, you don't like it? don't trust it? then just skip over the post, he's not hurting anyone. 




#2511115 4/18 ECQF Game 1 GDT: Red Wings 1 @ Bruins 0. DET leads series 1-0

Before the playoffs I was saying how I'm just glad they made it and that was enough for me for this season, but now it's not. We need to score here and take the lead in the series.

2 shut outs for the kid this year, good for him.

They have to give Nyquist some sort of award for what he is doing right now.

I can't get myself to say the award because I'm superstitious when it comes to hockey, but if he keeps this up for a few more months, there is an award I'd give him.

With how terrible Fleury is, this shouldn't be surprising.

Tie game, LGW Boards loves the Wings again!

Did you guys really think that 2-0 lead was going to hold up? I sure as hell didn't.

 

With this roster? I'm very happy we put up 2 goals at all against this Pens team. Being 1 down, we have a chance. With our roster, people should be happy that we're still in this. Instead, too much moaning about Franzen (who has played well, played a huge part in our first goal, yet he's being asked to take his head out of his ass), Tatar (who hasn't played bad at all, but he's the one who took the penalty he has to get ripped on) and Howie (who has made some great saves to keep this Griffins team in the game versus the Pens).

And yet someone on this board was trying to argue the other day that Nyquist is a career 3rd liner

 

I don't know who you're talking about, but I assume it's someone who started watching hockey yesterday.

Wow I hadn't realized that Goose leads the team in goals, despite being called up so late. His shot % looks really good too.




#2492067 3/6 GDT: Avs 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) Sorry Nick.

This team could be so dangerous with this type of effort + a healthy roster.




#2492001 3/6 GDT: Avs 3 at Red Wings 2 (OT) Sorry Nick.

That kid line just gets more fun to watch each game.

Spoken like someone whos never gotten the shot to represent there country in something. To most athletes (especially those from Europe) representing ones country is the highest honor. Yes even more so than the Stanley Cup. Hank owes nothing to the Red Wings or Red Wings fans. He has the life he has because he worked his ass off not because the Wings gifted him a paycheck. He helped bring a Championship and almost a second to this city when the team was supposed to be in transition. If anything the fans owe him for the joy hes brought them. He's earned the right to put Sweden over the Wings. I dont know what fantasy land your in but the Wings are not contenders this year. Sweden on the other hand was a contender for a Gold Medal. Common sense dictates which one he should go for at the end of a career. Challenging his loyalties because he went and played in the Olympics is just disrespectful for a guy whose battled for over 10 years for the Wings and its fans. Get over yourself. 


 

Yes because carrying this team on his injured back the past couple months is not worth your respect. 

 

My favorite all time post on these forums. I couldn't have said it better myself.

Kronwall 8th in the league in points for Dmen.  Only 2 have a better +/- and that's Keith and Pietrangelo.  If anyone thinks Kronwall isn't a #1 Dman, especially playing with a lower quality blue line than we're used to, is crazy.  And as far as points go, he's only 3 behind Subban for 5th overall.

 

I couldn't agree more than Kronner is a #1, and those are some great points to back it up. Those who think he's not are just used to seeing Lids ridiculously good D back there and anything less isn't seen by them as a #1 on this team.
