In Topic: Wings great Gordie Howe resting after 'serious stroke'

16 November 2014 - 09:55 PM

Brittany Maynard had the right idea.  Just seems crazy we let our pets die with dignity and without pain but not other human beings. 

I know, hey? We call putting down a dog the 'humane' thing to do (humane coming from human). And yet you can't do it for an actual human because it's somehow not 'humane'. 


Everybody is going to die someday, there is no getting around it. If you ask most people how they would like to go, I'd bet most people would say "Peacefully in my sleep at home with my loved ones around."  

Probably not "Slowly deteriorating for months on end and then finally with a seizure or stroke on the floor while my family panics and suffers."


I'm gonna leave out the negative religious aspect of this here but if on the off chance anybody wants to discuss that in relation to this PM me.

Last minute bad pass commentating stats are crucial for any very commentator very good.

At least Ozzy could handle the puck better than a 12 year old

Howard still has a lot to prove this season, we need a lot more than 4-5good games in a row.

I totally agree. But people tend to think that I'm a "hater" cuz I talk about his numbers when he isn't playing well (which was frequent recently i.e. last year, maybe year before) Just wanted to give him the credit he deserves for his good numbers and our good record so far. 



Oh we've all been keeping close track of his stats.

I haven't been here much and I have't been able to watch many games either, but I'm gonna assume you're joking (because wanting to keep track of an important position is all a big joke)

I've been really impressed with the way the season has played out so far this season, hopefully they are all up to a game against BUF.


Howard is playing well too. Just checked his stats and he's ranked 11th in SV% (.929) and 9th in GAA (1.97). That's a far cry from last year when he was ranked in the 30s-40s area. That's gotta help alot and credit where credit is due!! (If only there was a thread to discuss his statsicon_think.gificon_e_agh.gif)

I see people are still up in arms about keeping track of someone's giveaways....




I suppose that doesn't count as a takeaway that led to a goal either, hey?



Or this?




Or this?


Yeah I get it. One of them makes a Red Wings look great (which is fine) and one of them make a Red Wing look like a pee wee (which, even though it's widely known that he sucks at stick-handling, mentioning it is frowned upon...)
