#2240706 Your MVP Thus Far

Posted by puckloo39 on 02 January 2012 - 11:53 AM

Jimmy Howard, and the 4th line. Stood tall while the rest of the team caught up early season. This entire team is solid, if you ask me.

They picked Nick because everyone else hates Perry and wouldn't get in the car with him. Nick is Perfect and untouchable, so he volunteered. Nick is also legitimately an All Star, Perry is not.

BTW, rocks are better actors than Ozzie and Drapes. Nick did OK. :P

#2239792 12/30 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Blackhawks 3

Big game tonight. Sadly, I'll have to miss at least the 1st.


what's going on, Mike, do you have to work? I will watch them for you, no fear!!

Wings will come out firing on all cylinders and Chicago will have to really work for it if they get anything on us. If the last two games are any indication, the western Canada games made them unhappy with their efforts.

I was at the 12/26 Nashville Preds/Wings game -- and it might have been one of the best efforts I've seen from the Wings, collectively, this season. St. Louis, same thing. More please!! :P

I have exactly one (1) picture of me with a Red Wing. Kristi kindly snapped this one of me with Val. He's my new boyfriend, whether he likes it or not. :P

#2238439 12/22 GDT : Red Wings at Calgary Flames

so Commodore really does play for the Wings? I thought he was a figment of my roster-imagination.

Why isn't Ericsson sitting? Rhetorical question, and I don't normally jump on the player-bashing train, but he's a liability out there, on a given night.

#2238358 Jimmy Howard - "Iím just sick and tired of getting run over.

Posted by puckloo39 on 22 December 2011 - 03:21 PM

Anyone who knows me, knows my feelings about teams who let their goalie get taken out, game after game. Jimmy has the credibility at this point to call them out himself - and he should. No one is saying that our players should go beat down the other team's players who offend. But someone (don't ask me who) needs to make sure they're looking over their shoulders when they touch one of our goalies. There are ways players can police these sorts of things on the ice, without resorting to goon tactics. I just wish some of our current players had that type of mentality - which I believe they do not.

I miss Mac and Shanny and some of our less "elite" players like Duschene, who had the heart and passion to make sure no one took liberties with our goalies. If Jimmy has to channel Vernon and fight for his own safety out there, then the Wings should know they might have to figure out how to win games without him, when he's injured or sitting out a suspension.

It makes my blood boil when players run Jimmy and then get rewarded for it. :ranting:

#2238250 Stay classy Kesler

Posted by puckloo39 on 22 December 2011 - 09:49 AM

eh, Kesler has always been one of my non-Wing favorites, too. The Canucks have delusions of grandeur when it comes to their place in the NHL. Makes them say ridiculous things.

Kronner may not have more fights than Kesler, but he's got more Stanley Cups. Oh, well. :)

Kesler is a wanna-be


Datsyuk has more Selke's, too. Just sayin'.....

NM...found one. :clap:

I am in training for the "three-legged race" with Bert. :yowza:

#2237184 The Hottest Red Wing

Posted by puckloo39 on 19 December 2011 - 09:26 AM

I loved Luc :wub: Back when I used to go to San Jose on business in the early 2000's, I would meet my Shark fan friend for games in SJ. The Sharks used to be sort of adorable ten years ago, until they started whoopin' up on us. <_<

Anyway, we went to McCormick and Schmick's for dinner one evening, when the Wings were in town... like, kind of hoping, you know? Their hotel (San Jose Fairmont) was next door, across a courtyard from Mick and Schmick's. As we went in the front door, a group of very tall and well-dressed men were leaving. Luc Robitaille held the door open for us. He kind of bowed and waved us through, smiling. My eyeballs were about even with his pecs, which was a rather nice view, in and of itself. :D

Mac and Shanny pretty much ran over us, but Luc was a gentleman. I recall that he smelled really good.

The next morning, I went to Starbucks (behind the hotel) and got coffees. My friend was still in bed at our hotel, so she missed out. Neener~ D-Mac was there, and he held the door open for me, smiling so sweetly with his missing teeth. I adored him, too, and told him so! He said was very happy to know that, and his side-kick, Avery, was laughing.

My one and only D-Mac autograph says "To Linda, You ROCK! love Darren McCarty" - I love you, too, Mac. :)

As much as everyone hates Avery now, he was a very cute puppy-rookie Wing. He cleaned up very nicely. I had seen him the night before the game, sitting alone in a courtyard area outside the hotel, so I went over to say hi. He was surprised that I knew who he was and so pleased with the attention. It was very sweet. I still remember what he had on - olive green silk turtle neck and darker olive trousers, with a gold chain that was worth more than my car (new), and gorgeous Italian loafers. The guy could dress, even then!

And those are my decade-old Wing stories. Haven't seen them much since, so I don't have anything to add (yet!)

I am really shocked, if this proves to be true. Shame on him, and I hope he gets what's coming to him. :no:
