#2443331 is anyone happy right now?

Posted by wingslionstigers on 11 October 2013 - 09:43 AM

I don't even know what to add to this post. I think we have the capabilities to ice a good team but we just aren't playing the right guys. I just have no idea how to wrap my head around why Nyquist and Tatar aren't playing. It's just absolutely baffling. The little bit of ice time Tatar has seen this year was wasted on a 4th line role. How can you even tell a kid ok here is your chance, you are going to play a 4th line role with checkers for the first time in your hockey career. It is just amazing.. When if at all do we see these kids take on a real role for this team? How can you put a talent like Tatar in the press box?? He needs ice time. I'm at a loss for this one, I tried to be patient but this is a joke.

Look at Montreal's third line with the young guns.. Worked for them, worked for us last year.. What's the issue here?

#2439287 Bertuzzi Needs To Retire

Posted by wingslionstigers on 27 September 2013 - 10:01 AM

Bertuzzi is the only player in the world that can compete in the NHL with one hand on his stick. Do you see Crosby walking people one handed? No. I believe Bert plays with this style as it frees an arm up so he can efficiently drop elbows to somebody's nose if needed.

If I was going to keep any of these older guys it would be Bert. He is a pretty smart passer and a big body who will still get physical when needed. You need a guy or two on a roster that you can plug in anywhere to make ends meet and hes a good guy for the job. Cleary and Sammy is who needs to go.

#2405971 Red Wings don't belong in the same rink as the Hawks?

Posted by wingslionstigers on 17 May 2013 - 11:03 AM

That's what happens when your team sucks so bad for so long and you get all the top draft picks and can draft Kane, Toews, etc. Decades ago he says? Hm we won the cup not to many years ago and made the playoffs sense. Wasn't Chicago the team who sucked for decades? Didn't Chicago fans just start showing back up at the games in about 2007? Because If i remember right they couldn't give away tickets for a solid 10 years. Chicago band wagon fans please shut up and enjoy your 2-3 more years of being good before your team goes to crap for another 10 or 20 years while we win cups. Thanks

#2363437 Do We Really Need a New Stadium?

Posted by wingslionstigers on 02 March 2013 - 11:08 AM

They certinaly need a new arena there is not doubt about it. I don't even want to make the trip anymore because it's not even enjoyable going to the Joe. I can't even drink a few beers because if I have to piss once or twice I missed the entire game. Let alone if me or my gf wants a god dang snack. Getting in and out is a pain in the ass, actually every aspect is a pain in the ass. If I pay big money to see a game I want to enjoy the whole experiance. If I can't enjoy it then guess what, the view is just as good if not better on my 60inch screen. I'll save my money for Tigers and Lions games.

When I think of going to a Tigers game I think about how much fun the whole day is going to be. Going there, being there, everything about it. Wings games on the other hand, I completely dread everything about it and hold on to the only postive fact that I do get to see the Wings play in person. Why should I have to feel that way for a 100$ ticket plus all my traveling expenses and hotel? It cost me 400$ to see a game coming from the U.P.

I respect you guys that are not trying to be complainers and all, but let's face it. You spend top doller to go there and 18,000 people have to be in that building. It's gotta go boys.

I mean for real. Taking a piss at a Tigers game is almost an ejoyable experiance. It's a chance to get out of your seat for a minute and enjoy the whole experiance. Check out a couple chicks on the walk, look at some cool stuff. I mean you can walk around and bulls*** with your friends that are with you. How much more beer and concession stuff would the Wings beable to sell if their fans weren't scared to leave their seat or scared to drink beer in fear of having to pisss and miss a large portion of the game?

#2361131 Mursak on waivers

Posted by wingslionstigers on 25 February 2013 - 02:31 PM

OMG OMG we didn't trade Mursak and a 5th for Malkin and Crosby?? What a waist Holland! That guy really makes me mad.

Oh just because I know people around here are dumb enough, I am not really being serious I'm making fun of you. Thanks

#2361128 OHL vs. College Hockey Quality?

Posted by wingslionstigers on 25 February 2013 - 02:13 PM

OHL is better to watch hands down. It's also where way better players come from; although, a college team would beat an OHL team in a head-to-head match up more times than not. Got to think OHL is ages 16-20 though. College is where guys go who likely aren't going to the NHL. Even players already drafted who are unsure they will ever make a career in the NHL who want an education.

College hockey is horrible I can't even watch that crap. Dump and chase, back and fourth, horrible. I honestly enjoy going to high school games more than college. After I watch a college game I am just annoyed. The defensive strategies and athleticism are way dominant over the skill and talent of those players which makes for a very horrible game to watch.

#2356362 Time to sit Ian White

Posted by wingslionstigers on 16 February 2013 - 12:18 PM

Sometimes I really wonder if the people on these forums actually watch the games? Which is why I don't ever hardly look here anymore. Seems like you guys are all wanna be hockey fans, just flick the game on and buy jerseys so you can be cool and have something to talk about.

Ian White is a turn over machine, not only does he turn the puck over but he does at the absolute worst spots and times. I can't even keep track of how many times past two years I have seen him turn the puck over in the defensive zone for no reason and resulted in a goal. No other player on the Wings roster does it as consistant as White. The guy is no good.

All you bitching about Big Rig, Really?? Now this guy has been solid, probably one of our best back there. I shouldn't even say that, you guys ***** about every single player right? Unless they get 100 points a season, don't go more than one game without points, are + 100.... Jesus christ you guys are a bunch of clowns.

Finally being forced to bring up our young guys is the best thing that has happened to this team in years. Just wait to see how it pays off for us over the next couple seasons.

#2319241 Red Wings Rebuilding and Adapting to Maintain Dominance

Posted by wingslionstigers on 15 July 2012 - 08:22 AM

I just don't understand why any of you guys want to trade for a forward right now.. We are loaded with forwards and have a ton of forward prospect depth. Our forward unit looks better than it has in years. The only trade that would even be worth looking into is for a defensemen, and trust me they have looked plenty you just don't here about it. Even a trade for a D just might not be worth it and only make our team worse. You guys need to get real and quit assuming we can trade a couple unproven players for a super star. We tried for a FA in Sutar, It didn't work so we will try next year. It may not work next year, but were not going to destroy our team to make a trade that all you guys bitching will end up bitching even more about.

#2319240 Red Wings Rebuilding and Adapting to Maintain Dominance

Posted by wingslionstigers on 15 July 2012 - 08:16 AM

How do you figure we been in a rebuilding stage sense Rafalski retired? I don't agree with that but I do agree with your post, we cannot be dominate every single season. We have a great franchise but wiith a salary cap it's inpossible to put a team together that says Stanley Cup each and every season. There is going to be a few couple year windows every few seasons where we are just going to have a good enough team to make the playoffs and cross our fingures and hope we win a round or two. Although I don't think for a minute any of the management had rebuild in mind.

I really liked the Sammy aquisition if we landed Sutar and had a better shot at a compeitive season. Now I think these depth signgings are only going to hurt the oppertunity for our young guys to come up and get a chance at a bigger role. We got alot of forwards and I think it's time to let Miller, Eaves, and maybe someone else go and see if we can play our young guys more.

We got some promising prospects and our bottom 6 is really looking like it's going to be good in another year or two. The only thing I don't like is that Dat's, Franzen, and Z will certinaly be on the decline in he next couple seasons when we our ready for the next big run. I think Smith is going to turn into a really great defensemen but I am sure Holland has his eyes set on a big name defensemen next off season. I mean really though guys, our forwards are night and day better than last season. We are lacking Lidstrom, Smith could certinatly be as good or better than Stuart come playoff time. This team will make the playoffs and it will have a chance to win a round or two in the playoffs. If you don't think so your just a whiney little girl that just got way to high on the idea od Parise and Sutar.

#2268803 What do you guys have to say about Filpulla now?

Posted by wingslionstigers on 10 March 2012 - 02:06 AM

Sorry I made a spelling error. I wasn't informed that I was participating in an online spelling b. I guess if I was you and had no comeback I would probably have to make a pathetic attack. I'm sure you triumph my bachelors degree and probably make 7 figures too hey? Let's keep this about discussing hockey alright? I have to be professional all day at work, I don't need that s*** here. <----- God, I am really going to contradict myself in this thread...... Oh well, I'm the f***ing man

Well, it'd be a pretty boring forum if all we did was slap each other on the back and toast every move made by Holland and Babcock.

But anyways... You're awesome! Cheers!!

Thank you for that last part, I completely agree.

I see your point; although, s*** gets pretty stupid around here. Like to the point that most guys with much of a brain eventually just leave. It would be nice to discuss legit hockey, not spend 10 hours filtering through the endless retardedness that fills the forums on a daily basis. You can pretty much create an argument for any angle you approach things. But I keep it real and only attack from the correct angle, which is why I am so great.

Also, I mean if you want to see it the way you mentioned. Than this is the topic your looking for right? Because I am spicing things up around here and will be talking alot of s*** for the course of this thread. Well, for atleast tomorrow then I'll probably throw in the towel on this war.

Goodnight guys. I'll be back tomorrow to fully consume your pathetic responses and destroy you through a computer screen. It's all good fun though

#2268799 What do you guys have to say about Filpulla now?

Posted by wingslionstigers on 10 March 2012 - 01:41 AM

Because they were to stupid to see his potential and allow him to develop. Jeff if your way of viewing this is so smart, why didn't Holland go ahead and trade him like almost all of LGW wished? Because they seen what the very few of us on this board are capable of seeing. You know, the very few who actually played hockey and know things about hockey?

It just pisses me off how much people around here try to preach when they don't know s***. If you don't know s***, allow yourself to learn from the people who do by keeping your mouth shut and listening for once.

#2268797 What do you guys have to say about Filpulla now?

Posted by wingslionstigers on 10 March 2012 - 01:36 AM

Yeah because dumping players and making trades is how we became the most consistent and respected franchise in the league for over two decades. That's definitely our style. Making risky trades parting with proven system molded players. We'll just up and ship him and his family away because hes playing good and is worth every bit of his contract, doing exactly what we want him to do. Good logic buddy!!!

With a mind set like that you could go be a GM for Colorado

#2268794 What do you guys have to say about Filpulla now?

Posted by wingslionstigers on 10 March 2012 - 01:26 AM

I stopped posting here awhile back, probably a couple years ago or so. Just wanted to stop in and let anyone who wanted to trade Filppula a couple years ago know how stupid they are. I can't even describe how many topics/posts on hating Filppula there was and how many intense arguments I engaged in regarding him. That kid has always shown such great potential but was just one little step off from making alot of great plays we would have remembered for along time. He use to never get the power play time or chance to play with the skill players he needed to complete him. Now look at him.. Who knows how good this kid could be for us for years to come. Yeah I'm sure Joe average all you guys wanted to dump him for would have paid off real good today hey?

I also wanted to chip in on some other garbage I noticed in my 5 minutes of browsing the forums.. You guys are seriously dogging Franzen? Do you guys even watch other games besides the Wings? You do know unless you sacrifice all your depth, defense, goal-tending you just can't have four 80 point players now days? Look how good that has worked out for teams. Franzen is our 3rd/4th forward, and he is a very good one. Bottom line, enough said, that's a fact. Look it up. What do you expect Crosby and Ovechkin to fill out 3rd and 4th forward position? Get real you none appreciative clowns.

Oh our team this year isn't Stanly Cup caliber?? How so? Because we lost a few games past couple weeks? You do realize we are one of the top teams in the league and have been all season right? We don't have as much talent you say?? Hmm weird, we have pretty much the same players as we had last Stanley cup final appearance.. Except for all of our depth is even better today than it was then. All of our bottom forwards, Kronwall is playing like a top defensemen in the entire league. Get real guys and appreciate this great team we have. Not good enough for ya I'm sure ya can go find a better franchise than Detroit to follow. Wait, there isn't one.

#2035312 Am I the only one that respects Gary Bettman?

Posted by wingslionstigers on 22 September 2010 - 03:11 PM

The NHL is now a game that's won and lost by the power play. Penalties so absurd you would have to lower the intensity of your game and play like a girl to avoid.

He's done a good job you say? Give me a break. A team can dominate for 2 periods and come the 3rd get charged with ridicules penalties and lose the game. Whats the matter with you guys...
