wooo columbus! Even though the Hawks have played a bajillion more games than any other team they still can't put up the points!

Nice comeback win by the Jackets.

I haven't read this so-called "article" and I have no intention of doing so.
Why do you let people rile you up this way? Anyone with a modicum of hockey knowledge is just sitting back and laughing at her.
What these type of articles are really good for is entertainment, especially the comments left by other "fans" who are equally woefully ignorant. Relax and enjoy it, along with the fact that many others are modeling their organizations after the Wings, not the Stars.

You can't start off by saying you haven't even read the article, and then call us out for getting riled up over it.

I GAURENTEE you, if you DID read the article (don't though), you would be just as riled as we are.

erm... maybe you have the wrong day??

I have these games on the schedule for today.

Rangers vs. Boston
Montreal vs. Ottawa
Buffalo vs. New Jersey
Toronto vs. Philadelphia
Atlanta vs. Washington
Islanders vs. Florida
Anaheim vs. Detroit
Pittsburgh vs. St. Louis
Nashville vs. Dallas
Columbus vs. Chicago
Los Angeles vs. Colorado
Carolina vs. Phoenix
San Jose vs. Edmonton


Those are all in there.

He wrote "games to watch". As in games that might be interesting or important to Wings fans.

I'm sure there's some well thought out counter-points to this "article" and already there maybe some responses similar to this one:

Shut the f*** up, you uninformed, obviously jealous fan of some lackluster bottom feeding team, and overall hack of a "writer". Try again in a couple years when you've assessed the league and individual franchises as they currently stand, as well as the histories of those franchises both pre- and post-cap, and what that means to success, mediocrity, and failure in the NHL. In the meantime... choke on a bag of dicks.

Yeah that's the thing. There ARE plenty of arguments one could make as to why its easy to dislike the Wings, and I have even read several articles that talk about this in an educated manner. Its just the way she writes, gets all of her facts wrong, outright lies, and simply showcases jealous bitterness rather than a healthy rivalry.

#2051196 Wings bar in Tucson?

Posted by hooon on 23 October 2010 - 03:22 PM

I was in Tucson last spring, and didn't really look for a Wings bar, though. Was forced to rely on iphone updates.

It'll probably be tough since its not nationally televised, so you would need somewhere that has Center Ice, which I'm guessing isn't a huge priority in Tucson.

Hopefully someone else can help more than I, but I will say.... YOU'RE ON YOUR HONEYMOON! Surely there are some better things you can be doing than watching Wings Ducks :hehe:

#2051154 10/23 GDT: Ducks 4 at Red Wings 5

Posted by hooon on 23 October 2010 - 12:56 PM

Nope, every since his injury he's been making bad passes and has lost a step. Whether you like it or not or agree or disagree, it's the truth. Hopefully he turns it around, but he's played like garbage this year.

Not sure how that makes him a "shadow of his former self", especially when we are SIX GAMES INTO THE SEASON.

I've seen him look pretty good, despite being moved around on various pairings. He has been hitting, leads our defense in goals, hasn't looked terrible defensively.

Not sure how you can present an opinion as truth, but I DO disagree.

But come on, you have to give her some originality points for repeatedly using the term 'dead wings'. Never heard that one before... :rolleyes:

See, its funny. Its funny because it rhymes with Red Wings, which is the team she's talking about. Get it? Dead Wings?

I didn't even read the article until now. As an aspiring journalist, I hope wherever I end up working will be thousands of miles away from this writer, as she would lower the intelligence level of the entire staff by her mere presence.

What a crock of s***. The Red Wings are arrogant, and yet no examples. Red Wings fans are stupid, and yet no examples. Mike Modano a Wing? I guess this bimbo forgot her team didn't want him back. What a putz.

Tried to warn you not to read it...

Since no one has posted it yet:


#2050887 The Third Line

Right now I'm not happy hudler got a 2.875 Caphit, think of other players we could get for them :/

When has a live octopus ever been thrown onto the ice?
Imagine sneaking that in under your pants!

Well she starts by saying that she has been a hockey fan since she was 8 years old. Based on the quality of writing and information she presented.... that would make her about 9 years old currently. So lets give her a break.

#2050770 Goalie Poll @ nhl.com

Posted by hooon on 22 October 2010 - 01:14 PM

Does this take into account Cap considerations?

If I'm building a team, I'm sure as hell not putting 7 mil into my goalie when there are many perfectly capable goalies available for a third of that price.

I'm going with the Wings system of signing goalies.

#2050597 How many goals will Franzen score this season?

Posted by hooon on 22 October 2010 - 12:47 AM

For me, the question is not how many goals he will score, its how many games he will stay healthy for.

What an absolute idiot. A fan is just clapping in the stands and he goes after him. Guy has some serious problems. He is a Matt Cooke type of player, no business being in this league. I wish they would just get rid of these cowards.

#2048787 New Overtime Format Coming?

Posted by hooon on 17 October 2010 - 10:51 PM

Probably would then go to 4-on-3. Like it does if a team takes 2 penalties in 4-on-4, it doesn't go to 4-on-2, it goes to 5-on-3. That was a lot of numbers.

So they have to blow the whistle after 4 minutes? The only part I don't like about it is the fact that they have to stop OT only to restart it again moments later. What if a team is about to score?

#2047739 10/16 GDT: Red Wings 2 at Coyotes 1 (OT)

Posted by hooon on 16 October 2010 - 01:37 AM

As far as MLive is reporting, we aren't calling anyone up and we're going with only 11 forwards.

Ugh... Darn.

And btw, thanks again Hockeytown for another great GDT! Wish the Wings had that kind of consistency... <_<
