#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:

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:

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.

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.

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... <_<

Borderline 3rd pairing defenseman at best.

If he was beat out by LEBDA I'm not sure we'd want him. :hehe:

#2043115 Wings' Datsyuk has fight fans among Blackhawks

Posted by hooon on 09 October 2010 - 03:22 PM

I'd like to see Datsyuk fight Kane. :thumbup:

#2042768 Pavel Datsyuk has a Gordie Howe Hattrick

Posted by hooon on 08 October 2010 - 10:08 PM

Well, Datsyuk's fight didn't exactly win the game.

I'm just saying that I'd rather see tough guys fighting tough guys, than see our star player in a fight. Doesn't have to be against someone like Boogaard for him to get hurt.

That's what happens when no hired gun is in the lineup to take care of the dirty work. Now we have Datsyuk doing it instead.

This won't happen against most teams in the league, but against someone like Anaheim, it becomes a problem.

If we had Downy or another enforcer... they would not have been out on the ice with the Datsyuk line, they would not have been out against the Perry line. An enforcer would have changed nothing in this situation. God forbid our "soft euro players" aren't soft.

#2042747 oilers not pleased with eberle

Posted by hooon on 08 October 2010 - 09:55 PM

Taylor Hall sounds like a real douchebag. He was pissed at Eberle for scoring twice and thus taking the spotlight. Did Hall expect Eberle and the rest of the Oilers to just hang back so that he could be the big hero?

Umm... how is there even a shadow of a doubt that this entire thing is a joke... are you serious?

I thought Hall's part was the funniest part. Kid's got some acting chops as well.

You're starting to get quite the exciting team up Yonder.

vFlip surrounded by Mule AND Ritola??? Holy skilled second line Batman!

Holy no idiotic behind-the-back completely blind passes and one-hand-on-stick behind the net uselessness Batman!
