#2256283 Is Nicklas Lidstrom The Greatest Detroit Red Wing Of All Time?

Posted by miller76 on 13 February 2012 - 03:39 PM

Yeah, it is the internet so why have any pride in anything. It would be - " the words, McCarty,Draper and Lidstrom in the same sentence," :siren: OMG the Grammar Police are here!! :P


Lets not even get into the whole 'pride thing' around here! Pandoras box

I think you are losing me to. If you are having a discussion about all time greats, I don't think McCarty or Draper should even me allowed to know about the discussion, let alone be involved in it :P

Well I am sorry you are lost. What is it you don't understand? I merely sated that Yzerman was my pick. Follow me so far? Great. Next I implied a reason for my pick saying that players like McCarty and Draper helped solidify his great position at being an outstanding leader that they built around him with good solid players to play with.

I promise i will neverf****** use the words McCarty and Draper and Lidstrom in the same sentence, paragraph or breath ever again! My god are we that super sensitive around here, hanging on every post and how it is completely worded? My god it's the internet.

You went from Yzerman and Lidstrom then directly to McCarty and Draper??

Really?

I thought i made it clear on my post, that Yzerman was my pick. I was merely throwing in great names that helped make the Yzerman era that much greater. That guys like Draper and McCarty were built around Yzerman.

Sorry I lost you.


#2256189 What happened to Zetterberg's scoring touch?

Posted by miller76 on 13 February 2012 - 12:08 PM

Great game for Zetterberg tonight. We need to show him so love on here! He totally set that Franzen goal up, with that great pass to Lidstrom, that drew Coburn from Franzen in front of the net. Great goal, great play!

That's a tough one. We as Detroit fans are lucky to be contemplating who, the greatest was. I think this is an endless argument with possibilities of Howe, Lindsay, Abel, and Sawchuk that paid the price early on, and built a history. Then a kid named Yzerman that in a sense resurrected this organization single handedly in the 80's.
I think my pick would have to be Yzerman for my 1a. He was the cornerstone building block for the modern era Detroit teams.

Let me edit this. I have seemed to hurt many feelings here today:


#2256092 Joey Mac

Posted by miller76 on 13 February 2012 - 12:02 AM

I would have no issues with Joey Mac being the back up the rest of the way, with one stipulation. Either stay late after practice playing pucks around the net, or just vow to let the d-men handle those duties.

as someone who doesn't live in detroit any longer, it's great to get informed opinions on these prospects from you guys.

it's often hard to get good info and hockey's future can be waaay off about guys sometimes.

I was thinking the same thing. I enjoy getting an inside scoop on the log jam.

#2255220 Joe Thornton... class act

Posted by miller76 on 11 February 2012 - 11:01 AM

Frustration is inevitable when you are getting your ass kicked. That exchange between Sj and Det was a 6-1 game, you got to expect some chipiness at some point.

This is how soft the game has become. There is a thread in a hockey forum about this little exchange. This was every game with nearly every team before pansies starting running the league!

This is really a nice story. My oldest son, who is 15 and is high functioning autistic, is wanting to work so much. He wants a job badly. It's stories like this, that keep all of our heads up! Were not as limited as sometimes we believe we are.


#2253083 Who Could be Dealt at the Deadline?

Posted by miller76 on 06 February 2012 - 05:01 PM

I would make multiple trades! I would trade away multiple posters here on lgw, that have no sense of reality!

Emmerton for Parise right? Got to be an E4 by now!


#2253082 2/6 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Coyotes 3

Posted by miller76 on 06 February 2012 - 04:50 PM

Getting ready to head out to Westgate soon for the game. We need a good solid start, and a solid 60 minutes, no overtime BS. Wearing my black Cleary practice jersey tonight. We never lose when I wear it.

Read this horse s***

These mouth pieces that write nothing but crap, need to get knocked out already!


#2251831 How open would you be to trading Hank?

Posted by miller76 on 03 February 2012 - 12:05 PM

We got the best effen team on the ice, the envy of the league of a organization off the ice, and some aren't happy! Trading away Z would be ridiculous!

You want to be unhappy? Be my buddy who is a season ticket holder for the Ducks!


#2251821 Who Could be Dealt at the Deadline?

Posted by miller76 on 03 February 2012 - 11:30 AM

This team is good. I am not excited about screwing it all up. Trading away dependable, inexpensive 4th liners for a locker room cancer like Jeff Carter; no thanks. No team is going to do Detroit any favors as usual, why would they? I think if a good plugger, thats got a tough side, gets dealt late in the day at the deadline, I think it's a positive thing. I know the majority on here want to make a huge splash with a big name, but those names that are available don't win playoff series. Your third and fourth liners grit is typically the determining factor in playoff wins! We all should be happy, we don't need much.
