Wings: win this one for Nick... and move on to win two more. I know you have it in you, just do it. :clap:

#2292778 Will Detroit win this series?

It would help if his ears weren't so high, the dude is 7 feet tall on skates. :lol:

I don't really know why... but I feel like tomorrow is the breakout game, and the Wings will take this series.

I am hoping Kronwall "Sedins" Weber. That would be fun.

#2289237 Preds not allowed to play ping pong at Joe Louis Arena

Posted by puckloo39 on 16 April 2012 - 08:17 PM

Taking away the ping pong table is a move worthy of Shanny, back when he had balls. And I don't mean ping pong balls.

Go, Bert, you're the man!! :hockeysmile:

The Predators have fans? Who knew? <_<

#2286053 WCQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 3, at Nashville Predators 2

Fantastic game. If there was a fourth star, it should be Bert's for making a statement early. It needed to be made. My hero.

Game stars: Jimmy #1, Mule #2, and Emmy #3. Good on ya, kiddo, that was a beauty of a goal.

And Matt gets the JimmyJohn Freaky Fast award for how quickly that little "1" showed up. :D

#2284199 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by puckloo39 on 13 April 2012 - 09:04 AM

Once again the media catching a situation with a photo that could be interpreted the wrong way (which it is) and causing a stink for their own benefit.

OK. :lol: I normally wouldn't respond, but you just destroyed any vestige of credibility anyone here might have been affording you. Unless, of course, you said this tongue in cheek. Which I doubt. :rolleyes:

#2283512 Chants From The Joe At Game 3?

Posted by puckloo39 on 12 April 2012 - 12:20 PM

Considering I read on another board that the brilliant Preds fans are planning to chant "Z's a Sissy" in the next game, I believe I will refrain from trolling the Preds or their fans in any way. I wouldn't want to sink as low as they are.

I am a big fan of cheering FOR my team, however. I love the guys we have. I think the home crowd will only do their hearts good. Blow the roof off cheering for them, local folks!! :thumbup:

The message has been sent and it is now going to be open season on the Wings. Preds know nothing will happen to them. I am concerned.

#2280081 Going to Ireland this May

Posted by puckloo39 on 08 April 2012 - 12:02 AM

I went the other direction, landed in Dublin and left 11 days later, from Shannon on the west side of the Republic. We didn't make it to Northern Ireland, but I hope to, someday.

We started in Dublin (and retrospectively, would have skipped it), drove south through the Wicklows to Waterford, then to Cobh (must see, County Cork) then to Adare (must see) and from there to the Cliffs of Moher (simply stunning) and the Rock of Cashel (Munster). We stayed in Adare and took a ferry (car)at Kilrush to make day trips to Cliffs of Moher and the Rock of Cashel.

Of course, you can't skip Blarney Castle - you must go and kiss the Blarney Stone. :hehe:

Places to visit "along the way" - pick and choose, since you don't have much time:
- Powers Court palace and Gardens, Wicklow, fabulous gardens and a restored mansion. Beautiful.
- Jameson Distillery - well worth the drive, amazing! Also in County Cork
- Waterford Crystal (in Waterford) - seeing the artists at work is mesmerizing...
- Jerpoint Abbey (County Kilkenny) ancient Cistercian abbey... guide was phenomenal, telling the history
- Castle Cahir (County Tipperaray) sooo amazing... probably the best preserved castle in Ireland, lots of movies are shot there.

Cobh is famous for having been the last place the Titanic was moored, before the fateful maiden/final voyage.

We couldn't get near the Book of Kells at Trinity College in Dublin... huge crowds in line for that. The Guinness distillery tour was OK. You might enjoy that.

OK! Good luck and enjoy. It's a magical country. :)

#2279973 Wings meet Preds in First Round

Posted by puckloo39 on 07 April 2012 - 08:14 PM

Wings in 6. I am not afraid of the Preds and like that the match-up is closer to home, so time zone issues won't be a problem... or excuse. The Wings simply MUST play the entire game, and not the last 10 minutes of the 4rd, or they're done for, however. Preds will not roll over, by any stretch.

As for Peckerini, he has the edge on size -- Jimmy simply can't make himself into a 6'5" giant. I have no reservations about Jimmy Howard. None. He's proved over and over this season that he's the reason we're in a lot of games at all. Jimmy's quick and our D will step up. We have more depth across the board, aside from goal. Equalizer! Offense scares me more, however, I think several players have another gear (Mule, I am looking at you) which I sincerely hope they engage for this round.

Can the Wings bring it? Yes, I believe they can do this. One period, one game, one round at a time.

Go, Wings!!

Lol hilarious. Definitely the best part of the playoffs besides the hockey.

Your avatar still makes me laugh. I watched that game live and literally almost fell out of my chair laughing.

This thread is so amazing, I can't wait (since I have no ps skills, I depend on all you talented peeps)


#2277341 4/4 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blues 2 (SO)

Posted by puckloo39 on 04 April 2012 - 10:19 AM

Sounds like posturing to me. Like, if the Wings win then it doesn't mean anything because the Boos don't have anything to play for. Shenanigans. Why would this game not be huge to the Blues as well? They may have the division locked up but not the season-series against the Wings. The Blues have won 2 games against the Wings this year and lost 3. Neither team has lost on home ice in this series and I don't think the Blues want to start now. The Blues still have a lot to prove.

I love you. :)

Go, Wings! Get one of those things we don't mention and motor on strong to the playoffs. Can't wait!!
