#2305640 Cool Stevie Y story

Posted by Electrophile on 06 June 2012 - 02:04 PM

Greatest. Birthday. Present. Ever.


#2304273 Red Wings Next Captain

1. Aaron Downey
2. Robert Lang
3. Dominik Hasek
4. Roberto Luongo

My logic is undeniable.



The fact you left out Uwe Krupp, Sean Avery, Mathieu Dandenault, and Stu Grimson tells me your logic is a tad bit on the faulty side.


#2304234 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

Didn't Kenny Holland say he'd retire when Nick did? How soon can we get Yzerman on a plane?

What if they were to offer the C to Zach Parise if he becomes a wing? Think that would offend anyone?


Offend is the wrong word. "Infuriate" might be better. No slight on Parise's talent intended, but in order to get the "C" in this town, you have to do more for the Wings than just show up.

It's been Hank's job since he signed that contract. Pavs will take a permanent A, so will Kronner more than likely.


#2303940 Thank you #5

"Thank you" seems trite, honestly. I feel like it doesn't quite express the full breadth of our gratitude. We need to come up with something else.


#2303807 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

If it's a press conference, he's done. We all knew this day would come eventually, no matter how much none of us want to see it. I will say that I'm not going to be overly optimistic about this team's future without him. I foresee dark days ahead for a while. We could weather the storm after Steve retired, but Nick is a horse of an entirely different color.

Got damn it. :(


#2297350 #7 Washington Capitals vs. #2 Boston Bruins

so you're saying that almost all Boston sports fans are trash because they make hate-filled statements based on generalizations about a group of people that is actually large and diverse?


Ooh, aren't you cute. Lemme get you a cookie. I've been to Boston. More times than I can count. To see several different sporting events from several different sports. I have family living there. I know people from there that live here, and have lived elsewhere that I have lived. It's a racist city. I've heard it described as a Southern city in the Northeast. I was at a Dunkin Donuts near Fenway Park once, not long before a Yankees/Red Sox game, and heard not one but three people refer to black players on the Yankees as "n-words." As in, "I hope we beat those n-words" and "f*** those n-words." This is Boston circa 2009, not Atlanta circa 1949. To take sports out of the equation entirely, I was visiting a friend who attended Boston College and overheard someone refer to a black woman who got off the T as a "******* darkie." Again, this is in the last few years, not 60 years ago. To say that I'm not surprised about the comments directed toward that black hockey player is to say I'm notf****** surprised, considering the source. The same would be true if I was talking about Klansmen referring to the President. There's a reason many black athletes have said they hate playing in Boston, especially as visiting players, because of the racial hostility coming from the fans. I'm not pulling this s*** out of my ass, here. This is stuff I've seen with my own four eyes (I wear glasses) and my own two ears.

Go mess with someone else. Surely there's a clone of mindfly s***ting on the Red Wings around here somewhere.

If both of my most hated sports teams lose today, it's going to be a banner day in Electrophile's world. Let's make that happen! :siren:


#2295446 Who do you blame for this unsuccessfully playoff run

Posted by Electrophile on 21 April 2012 - 07:21 PM

How many times are you going to complain about getting negged?


As many times as I damn well want. Just like I'll complain about the weather if I want to, or the fact Old Navy didn't have the flip-flops I wanted in my size when I went shopping today. If you don't like what I have to say, you can either scroll pasts my posts, or put me on ignore. I won't give a f*** either way.


#2295372 Who do you blame for this unsuccessfully playoff run

Posted by Electrophile on 21 April 2012 - 04:37 PM

I liked that I got negged for saying that the blame shouldn't be dumped on just one person, that everyone involved played a part in us getting bounced out in the first round. I wasn't aware that was verboten around these parts.


#2295353 25 Games for Torres

God, quit bitching about the Weber non-suspension. It wouldn't have made a damn bit of difference in the series.


#2295352 Who do you blame for this unsuccessfully playoff run

Posted by Electrophile on 21 April 2012 - 04:03 PM

More than two people were responsible for our season ending short. Babs didn't utilize what little he had to his best advantage, Holland hasn't done much to improve the team the last few seasons, and the players themselves woefully underperformed, save a couple people.


#2295126 Will #5 be back?

Posted by Electrophile on 21 April 2012 - 10:22 AM

You really are a piece of work tonight.


Thank you. I try. Glad you've enjoyed it. I'll let you know when I release my greatest hits package.
