#2617320 HHOF #5 Lidstrom head of 2015 class

This brings the anguish flooding back, how much I miss them both!  :(     So very well deserved, for both of our former Wings.  

 

The HHOF can thank the Red Wings for single-handedly making the wall of profiles so much more handsome and easy to look at.  You are welcome, NHL fans.  :closedeyes:

Oh, my... I miss that team and those days, so much.  Baby Dats with his goal #7 - meaningless at that point, but a harbinger of things to come.   I watched my recording of this game so many times, I actually had the announcers comments memorized on the goals.  LOL~

 

Freddy Olausson!  Love that guy.  Igor, Nick, Dom, miss them all.   But, I'm looking forward to next season, let's see what you've got, kids. :tounge:

 

Thanks for posting, Mikey.  Fun memories!




#2611532 ECF : Tampa Bay Former Rangers vs. New York New Rangers

So, it's still true that if your team scores no goals, you don't win.  Sorry for Lundqvist. 




#2610693 WCF : (3) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by puckloo39 on 27 May 2015 - 08:02 PM

I actually don't mind the Duckies, aside from Perry - who makes me want to punch his face in for simply existing.  The Hawks... my hate-list is long, long..... I even hate their coach, and their idiotic goal 'song'.... they need to lose now.  Go, Ducks.

 

Ack.

Come on, Ducks.  Patooie.... I hate you less than I hate/despise the Blackhawks... them, I hate with a white-hot fire of mega-hate-ness.




#2609929 It's Official: Babcock to coach Maple Leafs

Interesting thoughts from Malik (and others) about Babcock's ego, among other things.

 

Why did Mike Babcock leave the Red Wings to take a job with the Maple Leafs?

A) He's tired of having to go to the playoffs every year. He could use the week off.

B) He forgot to renew his work visa.

C) Blue just goes with his eyes better than red does.

D) It's all about the loonies.




#2606558 ECSF: Tampa Bay Crying Coopers vs. Montreal Complaining Canadiens

Posted by puckloo39 on 07 May 2015 - 11:57 AM

I was mad at TB when they won the round over us, I just didn't like the crying and whining from their coach.  And yes, I was mad because Wings HAD the series in the bag, and then let it go.  A great team finds a way to win.  The Wings didn't quite have it together (again) in the playoffs.  Makes me sad, but there it is, can't change anything about it.

 

TB should have a massive chip on their collective shoulders, since Montreal swept them last season, round one.  Bolts were missing Bishop, who got injured... it was tough to watch.  Now that they are healthy, I expect them to win vs. the Habs, assuming Stamkos gets back on track and stays there. 

 

While I was not happy with TB moving on and not us, now I want them to win this round.  That way it's more evident that the better team did advance, and we can feel better about losing to them.  Weird logic, I know.  ;)

Interesting that the NBC announcers cannot go two sentences without mentioning the Wings.  Miss us yet?

oh my God, the title couldn't be more true!   LOVE IT.  I want them both to lose. 




#2604493 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Posted by puckloo39 on 29 April 2015 - 09:21 PM

Upside:  what team in the league is NOT fearful of a more mature Petr Mrazek with a seven game playoff series under his belt?  :)

 

My gosh, we are blessed with talent other teams dream about.  Next season, it's ours, folks.  :champs:




#2604434 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Posted by puckloo39 on 29 April 2015 - 09:11 PM

I hope Montreal destroys the Blots.

 

I am always proud to be a Wings fan, and proud of this team.  They truly did their best, I believe that.  I am very sad since this game means no hockey that means anything to me for six months.  See you all in October!

 

Have a great summer!!
