#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.

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.

#2301553 Kronwalled at the Worlds!

:lol: that guy still doesn't know what hit him. Damn, Kronner!!

I love how they showed the hit over and over, from all different angles. :P

#2300476 The person below me game...

Posted by puckloo39 on 10 May 2012 - 07:49 AM

Who else but Dawn (and Pat and Kristi) would go to a signing -- to get something signed for someone else? So sweet, our Dawn. :wub:

I have never had a pool in my yard, but then again, I don't swim so it's not an issue with me. :)

The person below me has a stuffed animal/critter of some sort they won't part with.

Making life easy on the old Fatso, huh, Flyers? Giving the game away... too bad.

#2299649 #8 Los Angeles Kings vs. #2 St. Louis Blues

Excellent win, LA took them to school and the Boooos are gone. This is most satisfying! :D

#2298577 Predators bench Radulov and A. Kostitsyn for Game 3 of WCSF

Posted by puckloo39 on 01 May 2012 - 07:21 PM

Hey, I remember how Scotty used to give a doorman or someone a hockey stick in the hotel lobby and that person would ask a player to sign the stick and that's how Scotty found out who violated the curfew.

I love Scotty B. Miss him, too. He was one of a kind.

great replay on the Legwand "assist" on the Yotie goal. :lol:

I wonder if Franzen's having "fun" watching this?


I hope his wife is making him change all the poopie diapers. It seems fitting, somehow. <_<

Hi, spooky Jenny! You would be particularly good at stalking Wings, as an etheral, friendly wraith.

I just want him to show up and score some goals, for the impressive contract.

Saw this on a Caps fan site.

Holtby's a boss. He's like, "Go ahead. Make my day, punk."

He's....awesome. I just became an post-season Caps fan, because of this right here.

besides, I sorta like goalies... :blush:

#2297192 Thanks, Matt!

Posted by puckloo39 on 26 April 2012 - 08:30 AM

Best forum on the internet, hockey or otherwise. Thank you, Matt and staff, for this place. I've made life-long friends as a result of this site - none of whom I would have otherwise ever met, and come to love as family. You are much appreciated -- as are all the great members here. LGW has so many fans who would make the Wings proud if they knew us! :clap:

#2296701 Say what you will about Barry Trotz...

Posted by puckloo39 on 24 April 2012 - 02:25 PM

Trotz knows Lidstrom is good for the game. He is a fan of the Perfect Human. Aren't we all? I like ol' Barry NoNeck.
