#2029928 New numbers for a couple of Wings

Posted by Kira on 28 August 2010 - 10:43 AM

Let's hope that Tomas Tatar wears #21 better than its previous owner.


#2024630 Wings sign Ruslan Salei

Posted by Kira on 09 August 2010 - 08:42 PM

Not a fan of this. Would have way rather seen Lilja back, especially after he fought so hard to recover from his injury. Salei hasn't played a full season since 2006 :o, and frankly is just too old. Whats the average age of our defensive core now, 37?

*sigh*



I'm with you on this one. I'm not sure this is an improvement. At least with Andreas, we knew pretty much what we were getting and what we had. This is an unknown quantity, injury wise and otherise. I'm kinda scratching my head on this one.

Meantime, I'm gonna miss Lils...he was always a hard worker, good attitude, worked hard to make his way back, and he gets kicked to the curb. Wherever he lands, I wish him nothing but good fortune, and good journeys.


#2023824 Would You Buy A Modano Jersey?

There is not a word in the English language to describe all the levels of no in response to this question.



Nor is there a word in any other language that could do that.


#2022842 Mike Modano signs with Detroit

Posted by Kira on 05 August 2010 - 03:30 PM

I'm not convinced. Why don't I want him? He doesn't strike me as the type who will be willing to drop his ego at the door, he is in it for the money only, and I just don't like his attitude. The world does not revolve around him. Now if you think you can convince me otherwise, good luck. I'm gonna be extremely critical of him. I want to see him sacrificing his body out there every shift, every night. Block shots, hit people who get in his way, fight for his teammates...everything. Leave your ass out on that ice every night - then I might be convinced. But don't bet on it.

Modano to wear either #89 or 90



"Also of extremely important note: Modano says that he has not ruled out playing for the Red Wings for more than one season".

I'm with Aussie Wing on this one. He'd better do everything up to and including walk on water to impress me. Otherwise, I'll still believe it was a waste of money.


#2022619 This team's still missing one thing..

Posted by Kira on 05 August 2010 - 12:15 AM

There is absolutely no way on the planet that I would EVER have Chris Pronger on the Wings. How dare you even think it. :ranting:


#2020430 Pick Your Favorite Wings' Title

Posted by Kira on 29 July 2010 - 01:53 PM

I'm with the person who said it's like asking a parent for his favorite child.

I have good memories of all of them. Watching Stevie raise the Cup in '97, something that hadn't been done since I was born was amazing. I remember standing there at work with tears in my eyes. In '98 it was for Vladdie, and I cried when he came out on the ice and held the Cup. I can remember exactly where I was in '02 when Nick scored from center ice and destroyed Cloutier, the 7-0 laugher against Colorado, and the three OT game in the Finals. And '08, good Lord, how could I forget that one?

I'm torn between them all.


#2020106 Wings offer Aaron Downey Tryout?

Posted by Kira on 28 July 2010 - 01:41 PM

I'll take him over Modano six days a week and three times on Sunday. Even if it's a two-way deal for the minimum, he's still worth twice Modano. :)


#2019809 I'm Boycotting the Winter Classic...

Posted by Kira on 27 July 2010 - 06:16 PM

Couldn't you have imagined Toronto and Montreal, or Toronto and Ottawa? I would have watched that. I'm not a fan of either team, but the tradition would have been wonderful. s***tsburgh and Washington? No.


#2019798 I'm Boycotting the Winter Classic...

Posted by Kira on 27 July 2010 - 05:52 PM

We also have another one who will not be watching the game. I bet there are quite a few people who won't.

I wish they'd think about the fans of all the teams. Some of us don't give a rat's ass about Crysby. I personally would have loved to see someone like Minnesota and Dallas...a couple teams that don't get much exposure, but I would be willing to bet if you played that game in Minnesota, it would sell out in a heartbeat. How about a game in Colorado?

I hope it's 60 degrees every day for two weeks before the game. It would serve them right if the ice was so bad they couldn't play, or even make ice.


#2017653 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Kira on 21 July 2010 - 10:41 AM

The Red Wings probably aren't going to make any other major re-signings, Modano's status isn't changing anything regarding Abdelkader and Helm re-signing here, Modano isn't holding anything up. If he signs, great improvement to the team. If not, oh well and the roster is still solid. You may not want him on the team which is perfectly fine, but no need to make him out to be the bad guy in the situation when he clearly isn't.



He's not worth waiting for. Let some other team have him, and we'll get down to business.

August 5th, eh? When are they gonna learn this guy ain't worth waiting for??? You have better things to do than kissing Modano's ass.


#2016885 Gagne to Lightning

Posted by Kira on 19 July 2010 - 02:46 PM

I must say that's a nice little feather in Stevie's cap. But considering the tutors that he had to learn from, I'd say he did alright.
