All due respect to Budd and his WWII heroism and decades of work in the organization, but there come a time when change is needed from the top to the bottom... Holmstrom retired today, the last of the dynasty, its time for a new beginning...but this organization refuses to change. That is why you will see the same old crap at the Joe and the same junky music and the same type of players....its over, the dynasty is over, let go. I am sure Budd wouldn't mind, nor his family.  Time to stop talking about history and tradition, what did it get us last summer, no UFA's of significance, no players who mean anything want to come here anymore....Detroit has worn out its welcome in the NHL and yet they still keep going back to the same well....let it go....Hey dude, my grandfather was a war hero too, he is dead, I let him go, I don't go around playing tapes of him talking...life goes on..time to move on from Budd, Karen, Stanley the Octopus and Hey Hey Hockeytown...</p></blockquote>

You know what your absolutely right, while we're at it lets get rid of all the championship banners and un-retire everybody's numbers, especially the guys that played in the 50's cuz that was 2 dynasties ago and thats kind of embarrassing. And make sure we cancel the ceremony we are going to have for Lidstrom next year cuz it's all about the new era. Thanks for opening my mind.

are they still using a recording of Budd Lynch saying Last minute to go?  If so, gimme a freakin break! Let go already! This is a new era! This is jsut an example of how this organization works....never let go of the past! Holland is still running his team this way! He still thinks he can win with mostly Euros....<br />

Hey look, goal.....</p></blockquote>

Wow, I really hope you are joking because they are doing that to honor Bud and his decades of work with the organization. How disreapectful of you to say something like that.

It's weird having good news on the injury front.


#2338475 Breaking the bank for Pietrangelo next year?

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 08 January 2013 - 11:37 AM

The league wanted teams to build contenders by drafting and developing their own guys and that is in full swing now. I think that the days of top players leaving as UFAs or getting taken by offer sheets are mostly gone, not completely, but for the most part. Holland and Babcock saw this coming a mile away and that is why they have been so conservative when it comes to big time trades. Every team has a list of players they will keep even if it means sacrificing depth to do so.


#2337949 NHL, NHLPA reach tentative agreement on new CBA

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 06 January 2013 - 02:47 PM

Just a thought I had: I know that this is nearly impossible to get organized, but what if no fans showed up to the first home game for every team? It would get everyone's attention that the fans are the real bosses.


#2335137 Holmstrom appreciation thread

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 03 December 2012 - 12:26 PM

Can anyone think of another player that had a career that was anywhere close to want Homer had? I don't remember anyone else that didn't have a ton of skills yet spent most of their career on the top line and played regularly on the power play. He took a beating every game he played yet rarely missed any. And to me I always thought he was going to fall down every time he skated with the puck. We have to thank Scotty for seeing what a unique talent he was and putting him in situations that made him successful.

If you think about it he was a big reason that our defenses through the years put up as many points as they did. Who knows how many fewer points they would have if Homer wasn't as good at screening goalies and defecting pucks as he was.


#2334909 New fan.. need advice

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 28 November 2012 - 10:28 PM

If its available in your area you should get the NHL Network. They are showing a lot of playoff games from the last few years as well as the Winter Classics durring the lockout. That should give you lots of examples for the rules and general flows of games and get you ready for live action when the league comes back

#2312060 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 01 July 2012 - 05:29 PM

I'll come back tomorrow, for my safety I dont wanna be around when people start breaking things.


#2310297 Steve Ott - anyone interested in getting him?

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 27 June 2012 - 02:45 AM

I say yes. Partly because my brother is a Stars fan and he hates that Det always signs his favorite players, he just got an Ott jersey a few years ago. The other reason is because I may have seen more Stars games than most people here and yes the guy plays dirty on occasion but I'd say that every time he hurts the team he does 2 good things to help.


#2308998 2012 NHL Entry Draft Discussion

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 22 June 2012 - 08:47 PM

The wings will be a lottery team for the next 10 years because they arnt over paying for Ryan or Parise's rights? Settle down everyone. Holland and Babcock have in one way or another said they will be aggressive on July 1 and see the need to get bigger, grittier, and tougher to play against.

Alex Semin would be great if he felt like playing for a reasonable price or for most of the season

#2286510 Happy Anniversary(April 15th)

Posted by Wings4Life19 on 14 April 2012 - 10:02 PM

60 years ago, April 15 1952, the Cusimano brothers started the most unique tradition in sports. The Wings better win game 3, if nothing more than just to honor some of the most important Detroit fans ever.
