Bettman is a ******.

Nice quotes. Wonder what he will say when Nick passes him in Norris trophies.

#2190000 Trade Speculation Talk...

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 26 June 2011 - 01:11 PM

what are the chances holland unloads franzens contract to a team trying to get to the cap floor? i like the mule, but he is seeming to become very injury prone and streaky. that contract could be an absolute albatross in a couple years. everyone talks about trading huds and flip but what about mule?

Yea, let's just trade off one of our best playoff performers when healthy. Sounds good.

#2186580 Epic Boooing of Bettman

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 17 June 2011 - 04:05 PM

If you feel sorry for this guy you are way too soft. He has done very little that the fans or players agree with and we have every right by paying for games and merchandise to boo as we please. What's going to get the message across more. A bunch of letters that he can easily throw away one at a time or mass public booing/embarrassment? When he threatens cities like Edmonton and Winnipeg who doesn't even have a team yet, I lost the small shred of respect I had left for him. He is a giant ******.

#2173214 WCSF Game 7 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Sharks 3

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 12 May 2011 - 04:52 PM

I listened to about 60 predictions of this game on 97.1 today at work. But I refuse to make one. I made predictions for games 1,2 and 3 and none after that.

I am so pumped for this game though. Someone is going to go down as a legend tonight.

#2172143 Can The Wings Win This Series?

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 10 May 2011 - 10:57 PM

I've watched more playoff hockey this year than any year before. Seen every team play. Trust me as an outsider, Wings are winning the Cup. Boston might give you a a few headaches if they beat Tampa but you're gonna roll the Canucks and Luongo. Sedin Brothers are going to put to shame by the Detroit crew.

We have another game to win before we go anywhere. But hey, I always said they could do it. They have come too far to lose the next one.

The Sharks are super calm and confident about this series right now. That 5 hour plane ride was probably so enjoyable for the boys. So relaxing and enjoyable that they will be able to come out and coast to a 3 goal first period. Go Sharks.

Can the Wings win this series?

Depth is way to inconsistent, and it has shown all year long. We had two "turning it around games" this season and while we looked good for a game or two after those games, we went back to s***ty play soon after.

Really? So it is physically impossible?

Can they win the series? Yes absolutely. Will they? Probably not.

Pavel Datsyuk smells. Joe Thornton has many leather bound books. Go Sharks.

I think I posted this in the GDT for game 3 but yea it's really well done. I like it a lot.

There are some really ignorant comments on the actual youtube video and not like it matters one bit but the guy actually rapping is white. So those comments are completely unrelated.

#2168384 Can The Wings Win This Series?

Posted by 8 Legged RedWing on 07 May 2011 - 01:18 PM

Game 5 is the deal breaker. Lots of teams win game 4 but not many win game 5 and force a chance to play for game 7. A team can brush off one loss and say whatever, then come out strong in game 5 but if we manage to win game 5, that's when the real doubt starts to set in. Game 5 is such a big game, it could really be the turning point. In all honesty I don't see us wining that game but I know they can. Just have to get some lucky bounces and play good D, that's all.

I feel more sorry for people who are continually trying to spread their own misery onto others here.

Maybe not everyone lives and dies by the result of what ultimately is a kids game. Maybe families and friends still use sporting events as a bonding experience in a building that is considered hollowed ground by most fans. Maybe people will continue to support a team despite what others view as a 'futile event' and make it a supportive send off for a team/organization that's shown Detroit 20 years of outstanding hockey. Maybe there are still some classy fans out there.


What do you expect from someone with a username Grim...?

The Red Wings have a 1.8% chance of winning the series vs the Sharks. This is what Lloyd Christmas has to say about that.
