#2325123 Who was the best player on our 2002 squad?

Posted by puckloo39 on 14 August 2012 - 08:12 AM

All good choices, but you know who I voted for. :lol:

I miss all of these great players.


#2324819 The person below me game...

Posted by puckloo39 on 11 August 2012 - 05:09 PM

Oh sure, I go every six months. I usually transcend dental medication.

If you get this pun, you're old!

The person below me likes clever repartee.

I have no canine companion so I used google translate. Woof. Dog-speak for "Flip is hot."

nip or tuck?


#2319250 The biggest difference in the Nashville series

Posted by puckloo39 on 15 July 2012 - 09:26 AM

I never thought of Jimmy as being the reason we bowed out, it was a team fail, especially the defense. Coupled with the Wings' inability to score a timely goal when needed, well.. there you have it. That actually defines a large part of the season, actually, not just the playoff round.

I will say I was happy when we got Monster. It will be nice to put OUR giant goalie in against other teams' giant goalies. Jimmy can sit on the bench and enjoy the show instead of being run over and shelled. It will be fun, you'll see! :tounge:


#2319245 Reminder: Personal attacks, trolling will not be tolerated

I find certain aspects of this topic ironic.

Things will get better when the season starts and people have the Wings to pick on, instead of each other. :tounge:


#2312438 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by puckloo39 on 01 July 2012 - 09:29 PM

i mailed my tootoo whistle to JLA with a note that said please carry on the annoying tradition :sneaky:


Any self-respecting Wings fan who has one of those whistles or uses it should be forcibly ejected from JLA, permanently banned -- after being forced to eat or otherwise ingest said whistle.


#2311160 Paul Gaustad re-signs with Predators

Posted by puckloo39 on 29 June 2012 - 03:37 PM

This will be interesting. The guy was all heart, as a Sabre. Always liked him... I wouldn't mind seeing him in Motown for the right price.


#2310516 Steve Ott - anyone interested in getting him?

Posted by puckloo39 on 27 June 2012 - 05:15 PM

I'd take Tootoo over Ott. That's how much I dislike his smarmy attitude toward the game. No, thanks.


#2308510 2012-13 Detroit Red Wings Schedule

Posted by puckloo39 on 21 June 2012 - 03:37 PM

only two Stars games, but both Friday nights. Likey!!! :P


#2308025 Darren Helm signs 4 year extension

Brilliant! This news just made my day a lot brighter. :)


#2306810 2012 SCF : Los Angeles Kings vs. New Jersey Devils

Posted by puckloo39 on 11 June 2012 - 10:12 PM

Congrats to the Kings. So glad the Devils didnt win s***. Suck it New Jersey

Yes Parise come to us indeed. LET GO WINGS! :D


echo this ^^^ :D

I am as happy for the Kings as I can be for any team which is not the Wings. They played their butts off, and absolutely deserved to win it all.

I also am very happy to see NJ go home empty handed. :lol:


#2306387 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Posted by puckloo39 on 10 June 2012 - 04:50 PM

I really like Brad Stuart, on and off the ice. He's a quality player, and he will definitely be missed. We knew he was going, but it's still sad. I think he enjoyed being a Wing, although I am pretty sure he never, ever wanted to leave SJ in the first place. He was forced to, by the trade for Thornton, to Boston.

So, he's back home with his family. We are poorer for the loss of him on our blue line - like we need to lose anyone else? - but I wish him all the luck in the world unless he's playing against us. :D

Thanks for your services, Brad. :thumbup:


#2304949 Throw the bank at RFA Shea Weber?

Posted by puckloo39 on 03 June 2012 - 11:19 AM

I was completely on the Weber bandwagon until he manhandled Hank. Even if he were a Wing and did that to a Pred, I'd still lose all respect for him. And if Hank's captain, what would Weber do to make things right? Hank can say all is forgiven, but Hank's only human; what would it take to actually work well together?


It offended me, as well, that Weber and the Pred-no-necks thought attacking Hank in that manner was fine and dandy. However, justice was served and they disappeared off the playoff radar rather ignominiously. Hank and Weber are grown men... well, Hank is, anyway. If they can work it out, then I say go with what makes the team better.

If that means Weber, then fine. But don't break the bank on him. While we need D, I am not sure he's Wing material. Convince me.


#2304631 Tim Thomas.

Posted by puckloo39 on 01 June 2012 - 02:00 PM

Maybe he's going to run for political office. <_< That consistency thing in goal? A little harder than it looked, eh? See ya!!


#2303438 Hasek wants to play in the NHL again

Posted by puckloo39 on 27 May 2012 - 10:16 AM

What about if Hasek signed a 2 way and agreed to compete with Joey Mac for the backup spot? That is, assuming Conklin is done.


You know, I doubt that will happen. There's an article today where he says he won't play 2nd fiddle:

Hasek remained confident about his ability to play goalie. "The NHL is the best show in the world. I want to play but I don't want to be a backup goalie, I still believe I can play on the highest level."

Color me "not surprised" by this comment. :P That's Dom. Big Dog, or not at the party. If some NHL team wants a goalie who never entertains the idea of losing, and needs a key player who will rip his skaters' head off if/when they don't show up for a shift... you just might want Hasek.

Love him or hate him, Dom attracts the media by simply coming to practice. Good or bad, he's a sure headline, every time. Hasek brings heart and desire to the ice, and makes any team he plays on better.

Someone will make him an offer. It won't be Detroit, I suspect. He won't go to a non-contender. The caliber of the management and the roster in front of him will play a big part in any decision.

I am looking at Tampa Bay as a candidate.
