#2555774 12/10 GDT - Maple Leafs 2 at Red Wings 1 (SO)

Has anyone actually ever switched goaltenders for the shootout? 

Bombay did. He put Julie "The Cat" Gaffney in for Goldberg when Gunnar was shooting for Iceland. :hehe:

This was great, thanks for sharing!

Nyquist = Goose

Tatar = Tots

Helm = Helmer

Kronwall = Kronners

Datsyuk = Dats, Pav

Zetterberg = Hank, Z

Kindl = Amazon (Kindle)

Jurco = Jurcs "Yurks"


I love the nicknames! But agree that they fly more if you are in the actual locker room. Usage probably reflects the fact that I wish I was one of the boys (also term that is used) in the locker room/have been in the past. Sorry if they annoy others but I will definitely continue to be using them!

Well that stunk. Flyers got away with two like Wings got away with two against the Pens, in my opinion. Hopefully lesson learned with defense breakdowns. Moving on! LGW

Hope Weiss gets a shot. Cleary can continue to serve hot dogs at the snack bar as far as I'm concerned.

Any resolution works for me, thanks for doing them (and everything else you do for LGW) Matt!

Let's go Wings!!! Happy that hockey is back.


I like the Nestrasil-Helm-Goose line.

#2539016 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by Ram on 08 October 2014 - 09:02 AM

Frustrating but expected. The Babs v. Holland on XO surprises me. I'm generally annoyed at the "overripe" theory still winning. I think it's outdated. Give these kids their shot. Nyquist and Tatar were in GR last year and now we're counting on them to carry the load this season!




Tatar did not play one single second in the AHL last year. 

Fixed! Still think my point is relevant.

#2432504 So the consensus on Shanny's #14 is a no?

Posted by Ram on 05 August 2013 - 12:12 PM

HHOF does not equal JLA rafters. Reserved strictly for DRW legends.


I honestly think after Nick, we will not see another number up there for a very long time.

#2422122 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Because up until this point we have managed to keep a roster free of d-bags... even Abdelkader is a pest with class.

Toots and Bert didn't have a history as d-bags?


Give me 20 D-bags. Could care less. That team full of D-Bags is walking around town with Lord’s Stanley right now.

#2422115 2013 Stanley Cup Finals - Boston Bruins vs. Chicago Blackhawks

Yeah, no kidding.  They did talk about us a bunch after the Hawks won the Cup.  If you weren't a hockey fan and just turned it on at the end, you would've thought they beat the Wings to win the Cup.  


It doesn't sting for me in the least.  We were an inexperience 7th seed that barely made the playoffs.  I wasn't expecting us to even take it that far.  Plus, our young guys ended up getting a nice Calder Cup championship out of it.


Sorry man but I respectfully and wholeheartedly disagree. A Calder Cup championship in no way makes up for the fact that our franchise had three chances to put away the team that eventually hoisted. That is choke/heartbreak/salt in wound all over the place.

How the hell is Kane the MVP?  Crawford or Bickell should've gotten it.




I think that Chicago will do what they need to to retain him, but why people wouldn't want Bickell wearing a Detroit sweater is beyond me.

This one really really stings but I will bleed Red Wing red until I die.


Thank you Wings.


Thank you also to Matt and the rest of the mods that put the work in to maintain this wonderful site for us to use all year!

I am definitely part of the population that is nervous for this game. Hawks haven't lost three in a row all year but the Wings are playing their best hockey all year. Going to be a great game and I will be cheering as loud as ever. LGW!
