#2674967 Calder finalists

Posted by evilmrt on 03 May 2016 - 11:08 AM

Why is everyone so anti-McJesus on here? Ok, so he didn't play half the season, but when he did he ended up with the 3rd best PPG in the league this year. Isn't that pretty good? I don't think he should get it because he didn't olay a full year, but you can't blame the league for nominating him when clearly he's the best rookie by a mile, especially coming back from a broken clavicle. 
I hate the NHL hype machine too, but you can't deny that the guy is a superior talent. Would Panerin have scored 30 if he didn't have Kane feeding him all year long whilst on a career year? 

I don't think they're against McDavid as much as they are against the joke shortlist that the league popped out.

Panarin - He's 24, turning 25 this year, and has played 4 and a half seasons in the KHL.

No Jack Eichel. Wtf? Five years younger than Panarin, second in goals and points amongst rookies behind Panarin, and in his first pro season of any kind. Nope, not included. Ok....

Not a big surprise, but Larkin's not among the top 3.
  Gostisbehere, McDavid, Panarin 

Sorry, I don't care.

Edmonton moved down to FOURTH?? Oh man it really sucks to be them. When the hell is the league gonna ban them from having any more first rounders until they start showing a huge improvement? Their stockpile of great young players and prospects is unreal. There's no excuse for them to keep finishing so low in the standings. If the problem is coaching and/or management, then fix it and start playing to potential. If they need to fill holes in the lineup, trade assets and get what's needed. Such bulls***.

Every team in our division has a brighter future than the Wings.  



We have a Larkin.

If they have to use the company name they should have gone with Little Caesars Colosseum. ;)

Great.  We've gone from an arena with the greatest name in sports to the first sports arena named after a pizza.  


Now Pizza Hut and Papa Johns will want arenas also.

#2674047 The Missed Chances: '03, '04, '06

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 27 April 2016 - 05:38 PM

Man I took those losses hard back then.  Didn't want to talk to anyone for days.  Good old college days.


'03 - was very embarrassing.  We were the defending champs.  We still had that HOF roster.  We played against the Disney Ducks.  Getting swept was the worst part of it all.  I couldn't look anyone in the eye for some time after that.  I think we could have gone past the other teams in the West, but we'd probably lose to Jersey.  They had a great team that year.


'04 - Got out of the first round, but that game 5 against the Flames screwed us.  I still think we'd win the Cup if that puck doesn't hit Yzerman in the eye.  San Hosay were playoff chokers who'd never get to the Finals.  Tampa may have beaten us, but at least we'd be in the Finals.  


'06 - What a stinker this was.   Yzerman's last hurrah was hard to watch.  Roloson was like 50 years old and we made him look amazing.  In turn, Lilja made Lidstrom look like Aki Berg on that pairing. Having Draper on the top line was a joke.  Maybe this was the worst of the three considering it was the third choke in a row.  We'd probably lose to Anaheim in the following round, though.  They had our number.      




Looking back at it, all the teams we lost to went to game 7 of the SCF so there's something to be proud of.  Also, I always thought the WIngs would be harder to beat if they got out of the early rounds. We'd do better against established teams than teams full of no-name jobbers relying on some super goalie.  Too bad we never got to find out.


Oh and Shanahan was awful in all those playoffs.  Probably the main reason the team didn't keep him.

Current logo is better and has history. This looks like a MLS logo.

#2673765 Free Press: Pavel Datsyuk to return to Russia following Playoffs

Posted by WingsallTheway on 26 April 2016 - 07:01 AM

hopefully out of our lineup 


If you don't like Helm I dont know what to say.


Sure, he shouldnt be in the top 6 but anywhere in the bottom 6 and hes one of the best in the league. Its not his fault that our coaches think he should be playing on scoring lines

#2673552 Alexander Radulov: Wings on short-list of desired teams

Posted by Echolalia on 25 April 2016 - 02:43 PM

Not worth it, especially considering the amount of impressionable youth the Wings are bringing in now.  I would hate to have a guy like Radulov be Larkin and Matha's role model.
