Mrazek Interview - 


What were you thinking what you grabbed Smith in bear hug to keep him from retaliating on Coburn?

“I try just to hold him a little bit just so he don’t bump him and get two minutes and it would be four or four. They would probably pull the goalie so I try to just hold him se we’d get the power play.”


Mrazek knows his boy Smith too well.

#2665824 Fixing this mess....

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 April 2016 - 03:57 PM

I had actually completely forgotten about Franzen still being on the team. 




He comes back tomorrow in a shocking return and scores 3 goals and 1 assist.  He then picks up Zetterberg and delivers a chokeslam outta nowhere.  That's after he beats up Rick Nash in a fight.

You sir are an official LGW hero. Let your actions be forever enshrined in this signature so you will be remembered as the Octopus hurler that represented LGW and the team.

Gotta say great throw and I liked the full follow through.


Then just standing there like "f you" Major props to you ! 


Hahaha, I swear I originally was just going to throw it and run, but I was just too hyped by the crowd reaction, and I kid you not a couple Flyers at the blue line looked over at me, (or just in the general direction at which it was thrown.) and I just started acting like a mad man. Almost like, "That's right! Come on! Let's GOOOOO!" I'm pretty sure I blacked out.



So???? DID YOU GET KICKED OUT? Or did you evade capture?


I didn't have an usher or security guard even say a single word to me. They tolerate the tradition as long as you respect the game. Throw it exactly at the time I did or immediately after a goal and you are fine. Don't ever disrupt the flow of the game or you're gonna get kicked out, fined, etc. Which I understand and respect.

#2664755 Forward Line Combos/Discussion

Posted by Jesusberg on 06 April 2016 - 12:34 PM

Just a guess on my part, but I think it comes down to Blashill swapping Richards for Mantha, and now deciding to use Sheahan on the 2nd PP unit. That leaves Mantha with limited minutes on the 4th line, and no usage on special teams. Unlike Athanasiou, Mantha doesn't strike me as a guy who's going to have much of an impact playing 6-8 minutes. The fans might not like it, but it's the way Blashill's positioned him for the time being.

That said, I don't get why Blash seems so insistent on double dipping with his players. Now it's Abdelkader and Sheahan playing on both the PP and PK, with Abdelkader ranked 2nd in SH TOI/GP for over a month now. In that span, the team's PK is 25th overall in the league. You can attribute the issues to any number of things, but I can see how overusing Abdelkader might be one of them.

It's not like this team is void of dependable PK guys - use AA a little on the 2nd PK unit. Heck, at the very least, use Helm more. He's proven to be a capable penalty killer over the years - he has that "resume". It's probably the biggest gripe I have with Blashill - he seems to try to "play it safe" too often, and goes back to the same well over and over. Hopefully that changes as he and the team adjust to each other.

Edit: It took Abdelkader being in the box, but...

Jesus Christ I understand being frustrated but it's like some of you have never been a fan of a losing team. I know some of y'all are young but *damn*.

"I hate this team"

"I'm not watching the playoffs if we make it"

O...k? Don't? Like rage quitting isn't going to change the sitch, guys. If you don't want to watch, then don't watch. The bottom always falls out eventually, even if it takes 20-some odd years for it to happen. That's life as a sports fan. If you don't want to root for a losing team or a team in transition, then don't. But not everyone has one leg over the side of the bandwagon. Some of us remember what it was *really* like to suck, and I don't think we're anywhere close to that.

#2632814 Where Are The W-L Results?

Posted by rick zombo on 24 October 2015 - 12:21 PM

If you're looking for W-L results, any hockey website should have them. Like nhl.com or tsn for example. Many of these sites also include breakdowns of OT loses, SO loses, etc. You should be able to find playoff records there too.

Posted by TheXym on 18 October 2015 - 08:48 PM

I just hope Franzen is able to overcome the symptoms he is facing right now and is able to lead a healthy life with his family. While I think a healthy Franzen is a big asset for the Wings, if he hangs it up, I wish him the best and thank him for his efforts as a Wing. He was in beast mode in 08. I hope he LTIR's it for his long term health, but I don't have the right to tell him what to do.
