#2531405 So next gen consoles? Who is making the jump

Yeah I just added 8 games this week due to the "Ultimate Summer Sale", including Forza Horizon, Payday 2, Plants Vs Zombies Garden Warfare, Halo: Spartan Assault, and a few others. The backlog seems to grow more than it shrinks.

#2531090 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

As a moderator here, I'm just glad the Wings didn't announce the re-signing of Quincey and Cleary on the same day.

#2529896 Hockey News: Red Wings D hunting

Posted by Shaman on 03 July 2014 - 10:05 PM

Tyler Myers can go right out the window. They want a ridiculous amount for him (heard 4 starters and a high round pick) and honestly he's not that good. He's just tall.


Byfuglien is an interesting option. He fills a lot of holes on our backend (size, toughness, and a righty). Seems like a better trade partner than BUF who is in our division. 


Don't know much about Petry. 



I don't want to imagine Big Buff filling any holes on my backend.  Immature and sleep deprived is not a good combination.  



What? All I'm saying is that we have a lot of pressure back there sometimes and he can be the one to relieve it. Sure, there might be some boil-over from the other D-man he's playing with, but they just need to bear down, keep it loose, and be prepared to go long and deep.... into the post-season.

I hope Holland brings Luca Brasi with him to this meeting.

I think the biggest thing in re: our health is being able to play our possession game. We did a lot of running around this season, having to chase the puck and forecheck a little heavier etc. This is a big reason why we absolutely need to add a reliable puck-mover on our back end. Someone who makes a good first pass and can help clean up our transition game. We need to own the puck, dictate the play.

Lol Franzen drafted 4th overall, behind Malkin, Ovechkin, and Rinne. Love it! Eat it all you Franzen haters! LOL

Samuelsson would be a good powerplay coach.  



Shoot the glass!!!!!



#2521758 2014 draft thoughts.

He needs to sack up and make a bold move


Seems to me like there are many things that you could criticize Ken Holland for, but drafting isn't one of them.  He does just fine with the draft.

Honestly it's nice he's getting to play somewhere, and even better it won't be with the Wings.  Sounds harsh but he clearly didn't have a future with the team.  I'd rather they call up someone with the potential of making the lineup rather than use a player purely for spackle.

Somewhere The Axe is trying to figure out how to say Emdog in Russian.

Just because you don't like someone and you make a comment in a thread that its welcomed in doesn't mean I compare him to my jilted ex-girlfriend. But it is funny how he does get compared to a "girl"friend and not some sook of a boyfriend.


I wasn't directing that comment at any specific one post.  Like I said, I think he's the best player in the league but I still pretty much cant' stand him. 


But I also don't go seeking out videos about him that will only irritate me.  Especially when one of the biggest complaints is about how much attention he gets.   It's like drinking spoiled milk repeatedly and then asking someone else to drink it.  "Doesn't this taste awful!  Here, have some!"


I prefer to go the route of "He Who Shall Not Be Named" when it comes to Crosby. 

#2506063 4/4 GDT - Sabres 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by TheXym on 04 April 2014 - 09:08 PM

Ugly third, but our boys got the two points. Is that a four game win streak?

With the losses by CBJ and WAS, a good night. Congrats to Alfie for the GWG. I hope Jimmy is OK after that weird play when he went down awkwardly behind the net. I think regardless, Gustavsson should get the start tomorrow night.
