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 I think it's outdated.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?

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!

#2397159 2 Games for Abby, 0 for Weber?...We Deserve Answers

Posted by Ram on 05 May 2013 - 10:42 PM

In reference to non-suspensions of Malkin and Weber, I can't agree more, but I think the reason that Abby got two, other than two games being par for the course this playoff season for suspendable hits; is mainly because this ( being "blindsided hits" ) was an issue that the league has addressed and stated over and over again through disciplinary measures that they will not tolerate it. Believe me I'm just as pissed as the next guy about to new NHL tuning soft and that Abby's hit was pretty borderline and etc etc. Bottom line is you have to adapt, especially when it comes to "blindside" hits. IMO. I just think that this particular type of hit has been addressed for several years now and that is why Abby got suspended for it.

Also the Weber incident was such a joke non-call that it received national media attention, so you know that's just a total ball dropping by the league.

#2366143 wings arent winning the cup

Posted by Ram on 07 March 2013 - 04:18 PM

Your subject line is true for 96% of the league, so, nice prediction. Dynamite.


I do agree with your sentiment about the Wings staying put.


I think that as fans, across any sport, we love to play GM and draw up all these hypotheticals that most of the time are simply pipe dreams and just will not happen. Especially trades. If you want to get rid of all these players, you're assuming that other teams will them. Like Sammy, Cleary, White, you can't just move them at will. You can't just implode the team and automatically stay competitive.


The Wings are competing right now. They're doing what they can with what they got. Do you have to ask for more? IMO it is not realistic in this salary cap age to think your team will just be lights out every year. Take a step back and realize, like the title implies, your team cannot be above average every year. There's no reason to overly negative about it.
