#2246263 Why don't we have a "JIM-MY JIM-MY!" chant yet?!

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 16 January 2012 - 11:37 PM

Yea it was good hearing the 'Jimmy Howard' chant but I think a simple 'Howie' would be better as well.

Conklin has the ability to play well but even a backup goalie needs some action every now and then so I'm not sure you can blame him if he plays poorly. He just hasn't played enough. I still think they will come out with a better effort then last night. 4-2 Wings.

I was just going to say, I doubt he used the 'N' word because if a ref heard that, it would be a much bigger deal. I was thinking along the lines of a monkey or something banana related as well which it turns out was the case. I'm not sure on what the league should do about this specific comment but I'm with esteef on this one. If you don't want the specific word to be said to you, then stop calling each other it especially in music that EVERYONE listens to.

#2237815 Quebec culture minister upset at Habs

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 21 December 2011 - 05:16 PM

What you americans arent understanding is that Quebec is a majority french province who have been striving for decades to preserve their language. The canadiens are a major symbol of the french people, they have sport shows where all they talk about is the habs. Now they have a teams with like zero french players of any significance, an owner who never talks to the media, a gm who never talks to the media, and now an entire coaching staff that can't speak french. Jacque Martin literally did all the interviews for that team. I know that montreal is pretty bilingual, but the entire province is habs crazy. 90% of the fans are french. So who will now be the spokesman for the team? Could you imagine how pissed you'd be if the no one froms the wings where ever avialable for interviews? now multiply that by 10. Thats how they feel, its totally understandable they atleast dont have an assistant coach who can speak french. Is that too much to ask?

How many of those 90% French speaking fans do you think can speak English as well? Probably close to all of them especially the younger ones. So would it really be a burden to listen to an interview from the coach in English which you can certainly understand just fine? It's a game FFS. Everything of importance in their life like business and whatever else is probably done in French. I actually went to Montreal 2 years ago in the summer. I don't speak a lick of French and I had no trouble eating out or going to bars or anything really.

Maybe you should worry about passing St. Louis in the standings before concentrating on Chicago.


With a win tonight we will. But let's be real here. It's going to come down to Chicago and Detroit in the end.

#2236617 Like A BOSS

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 16 December 2011 - 11:35 PM

I love when Pav surprises people with hits. He does it all the time. But Shanny is a bigger boss.


This is the top comment right now for this video. Which I thought was hilarious.

"I'm Brendan Shanahan, the National Hockey League's senior Vice-President of Player Safety, last night in Carolina, an incident occurred during a playoff game between the Detroit Red Wings and Carolina Hurricanes. At 4:17 in the 3rd period, some hairy ***** started yelling at me. So I told her to go shave her greasy f***ed up armpits. The video clearly shows that this revolting lesbian does, indeed, need to keep her unruly bodyhair under control. For these reasons, I am the man."

Not happy about this loss at all. Regardless, I think this is our best team since '09. We look good even when we lose like today. I probably won't say this again and this seems like as random a spot as any to say it but I honestly think this team is in for a cup run. I'm not afraid to say it after a meaningless regular season loss. We look good. Damn good. Howard will be key.

#2236090 Tomas Tatar Called up Today

That's a bummer about Conner as well. He was playing better then I ever expected the past few games and was finally starting to hit his stride. Good thing we are very deep right now.

Needs less Ericsson... I feel like he is the anti-Lidstrom. Lidstrom at all times appears to be thinking ahead of everyone else. He is a thought quicker then the entire opposing team at most times. Ericsson is a thought slower than everyone else.

Besides for the obvious though, I agree it is frustrating to lose to the same teams in the same way over and over. Good thing we are coming home for a couple games because we can't afford to have losing streaks of any kind with how tight the WC is.

I feel like it needs to be some kind of team with history. The Sharks don't have a whole lot of history. Perhaps we could play the Wild. Detroit is rivals with Minnesota in every other sport just about so I'm sure it would be a good game for the fans and players.

#2230514 Will Stuart re-sign?

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 28 November 2011 - 01:43 AM

With defensive plays like last night against Nashville, I'd really dislike seeing him leave.

Yea for real. Talk about right place right time. I hope he stays because he is definitely solid for his price and I couldn't care less if he fights anymore.

I had a dream Hank scored 2 goals in his next game. It wasn't a crazy dream but I woke up feeling like they played yesterday and he scored twice. Sooo I'm going to say we win with two goals from Zetterberg lol.

No Brunnstrom?

(It's actually not that big of a deal but I'm anxious to see him play his first real game with us.)
