#2048988 Players you've always wanted on the Wings

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 18 October 2010 - 02:33 PM

No, I don't think him being able to score was the reason he's hated. Sakic sure scored a s*** ton of goals on this team and yet there likely isn't one person who hates him. There's been plenty of pests that have come and gone, plenty of jackasses who try to fight people like Yzerman or Lidstrom, but the low that Lepuke sunk to was one of epic proportions and quite memorable.

A fantasy team of what I'd like on the Wings is likely based off of their actual performance and play style, which I presume just about everyone else here picked theirs, not NHL 11 ratings. Not to knock you for picking what you like, but, er, screw it, it was a dumb choice. :P

You need to go back and look at others lists, if you're dismissing HIM because he was known as a cheap shot artist. I see several others on peoples fantasy lists that have pretty long rap sheets.

The low that you speak of was a boarding penalty? Didn't Stuart take a penalty for that, 30 seconds into the game the other night? Sure the result was different, but the penalty was the same.

I guess we should all pile on Gordie and Lindsay for being cheap shot artists too. The league even had to add 2 rules to deal with our heroes flagrant elbows and knees to opposing players.

I know I didn't pick a popular choice here, but to dismiss his playing abilty at clutch times, because of one shot to a Red Wing is just missing the whole idea of this thread.

Also, I didn't realize that Lemieux was on NHL '11, but then again the last time I played a video game, Pong™ was new on the market.

PP is our enforcer, Right?

We are truly sissies then.

Wow, our PP really needs some Viagra. Sad.

Maybe it's the age thing.

#2047702 Letang "blindside" hit on Comeau

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 15 October 2010 - 10:58 PM

Comeau is perfectly fine, I suspect he laid on the ice for a bit to try and sell it.

Therein lies a whole new aspect of the headshot rule, " the sales pitch ". If they are going to boot a guy for a hit, they should, at least have to have a good neurological exam before they are allowed to put the receiver of the hit back on the ice.

The last thing I want to see is a player get a 5 and a game, and then watch the guy he hit knock in 2 goals on the ensuing PP.

#2044546 Wisniewski makes obscene gesture towards Avery

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 12 October 2010 - 01:52 AM

I kind of thought he was asking him if he wanted to have a few beers after the game. That's what that gesture signifies.....right??

#2044150 Mike Modano -- Mike MoTown!

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 11 October 2010 - 08:35 AM

I call him Mr. Willa Ford ;)

I thought it was Mr. Manda Modano now. :D

#2044094 Andreas Lilja to Anaheim

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 11 October 2010 - 12:42 AM

So that means he's going to have to jump in the scrum to protect Perry? I wonder if he can use the conscientious objector card?

#2043699 Kovalchuk Fights Mike Green

Looked like 2 chicks swinging their purses at each other. I was half expecting one of them to pull out their can of hair spray and spray the other in the eyes.

Turco= Fail

#2041753 Tomorrow night - What would you rather see?

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 07 October 2010 - 11:21 PM

If Malts has truly made the decision to hang them up, then I'm all for this. Especially, if you consider the bullet he took for the team last year by going out on LTIR to free up cap space. Plus we need Bert to be healthy this season, if the 2nd line is going to work as Babs has planned it.

Maltby deserves a good send off

Like a Viking warrior to Valhalla!!

#2036777 9/25 Pre-season GDT: Red Wings at Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 25 September 2010 - 07:49 PM

How's that not a penalty on Patty Kane?

Gary's poster boy immunity once again. Can't wait until he starts swinging at Osgoods package from behind.

#2030732 Howard Changing Masks

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 03 September 2010 - 04:52 AM

As long as it helps him put up 50 shutouts this season... I'm cool with it.

Though I will say, I still like the wicked graphics on Osgood's bucket.

#2028405 Grit/Fighting

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 23 August 2010 - 03:17 AM

I am fully expecting Jimmy Howard to lead The Wings in fighting majors this season......

... And that's a pretty sad thought.

#2026025 Crosby doesn't suck but he's a whiney little bitch, however.

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 14 August 2010 - 05:26 AM

I really didn't get the comparison at all between the 2 videos, but I enjoyed seeing DMac and Joey out there taking care of business instead of sending a message with our powerplay.

Oops, probably shouldn't have gone there. Sorry.

#2022345 Red Wings Shootout lineup

Posted by BigWillieStyle on 04 August 2010 - 10:41 AM

Kronwall sure looked like a forward in his attempt last year.
