#2022813 Mike Modano signs with Detroit

Posted by Kira on 05 August 2010 - 02:03 PM

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.

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...

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.

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.

That picture is worth a thousand words. All of them good ones.

As the old song goes, "long may you run".

#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.

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.

#2016599 How are you dealing with the off-season?

Posted by Kira on 18 July 2010 - 06:46 PM

No disrespect, but I hope you have to wait a long, long time for that to happen...like, never.

Spent today in a boat cruising up and down the Saginaw River between Bay City and Saginaw. Saw tall ships, snowy egrets, great blue herons and two bald eagles. Nice day to be out...I only wish we had a Red Wings flag to fly on board.

Thanks, I'm glad I'm not alone.

I can't wrap my head around the concept of him on this team. Hang 'em up, Mike. Sorry, but it's past your time to go.

#2007030 Lilja likely gone

Posted by Kira on 30 June 2010 - 07:52 AM

I think many of you are overlooking the fact that Lilja was never the same after returning from his concussion. He seemed very tentative to do the grinding in the corners that he had previously done. This could be nothing but posturing from Lilja and his agent, but it wouldn't be the worst thing in the world if Lilja didn't return.

Who's to say, though, that he was trying to find his limitations while still trying to recover totally? I don't hold it against him at all - I'd probably do the same while I was figuring out just how much I could take. This summer will give him time to recover totally and he'll be back at full strength most likely. I think we should keep him. Sorry, but that's my feeling on this.
