Leftwinger is ready to trade 25% of the Detroit Red Wings team after 1 preseason game. 


Yep, hockey season is back. 

#2471447 Look who's top in GR scoring

I think there should be a rule about completely fabricating nicknames for players. I have no idea who Dirty Harry is, and it's annoying that I have to ask.

#2464993 12/15 GDT: Lightning 3 @ Red Wings 0

Posted by kipwinger on 15 December 2013 - 06:53 PM

Wow, I had no idea how many trained medical professionals there were on LGW.  I should have known after a good portion of the forum concluded that Orpik "shouldn't" have been injured by Thornton, but it's pretty clear now that you've all chimed in on Franzen's injury.  Keep up the good work guys and gals, this thread wouldn't be the same without you pulling comments out of nowhere to validate your preconceived bias against Franzen.

You're absolutely right it is a total mind/body experience like doing yoga while petting puppies and drinking the finest scotch and smelling something that smells awesome all while having a tantric orgasm


what were we talking about?


So anyway, what's your opinion on something hockey related?  Literally, ANYTHING hockey related.

#2315638 Jonathan Ericsson. Knock, knock...

Posted by SwedeLundin77 on 05 July 2012 - 11:18 AM

Ericsson gets it bad from Wings' fans.... I believe mostly because he set such lofty expectations after he burst out in the 08/09 playoffs and then fizzled the following season. The fact is, he has become a strong shut down penalty killer. It's hard to believe and I had to see the stats to really believe it myself, but when he got hurt last season, our PK suffered.... he returned and all of a sudden our PK got better. I don't believe he'll ever be valued higher than a 3/4 d-man, but I do believe he'll be a strong shut down defensemen with "some" offensive skill going forward. He just never had much of a chance. I say if we don't get any significant defensive help this offseason, we put Ericsson on the second PP and see what he can do. It can't hurt, and the opportunity is there.

#2306648 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Did you have the same attitude when Brian Rafalski signed here to be closer to his family?

I'm not a New Jersey fan so why would I care.

If I was a New Jersey fan then yes I would have felt the same way.

#2306382 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Glad to see him gone. Last year he stunk up the whole blue line most likely to be traded. He got his wish going to the fkn Guppies, dont let the door hit you on the way out Brad.

#2305566 Looking at Holland comments.

Posted by ogreslayer on 06 June 2012 - 09:16 AM

Start at goalie, it is the easiest to answer. McDonald will be gone and a UFA will come in. McDonald has zero trade value, so either will be cut or become a throw in on a deal. There are several veterans goalies that could be had this year. No major changes in the roster, cap, or status of the team. If possible I would try to extend Howard now, rather than risk him next offseason.

Who is this McDonald guy you keep talking about? The Wings have no such person on the roster. Oh, you mean Joey MacDonald? I seriously doubt he'll be cut or thrown in on a deal. He'll be put through waivers & either play in GR or the Wings lose him if another teams wants to claim him. So realistically, he'll be in GR splitting time with McCollum and/or Petr Mrazek throughout the season.

Pittsburgh grabbing another trash goalie.

#2304738 Tim Thomas.

Posted by VM1138 on 01 June 2012 - 10:09 PM

Is it just coincidence the amount of crap Timmy's gotten since making his political affiliation known? I think not.


Yeah, everyone loved Tim Thomas until he expressed his opinion. It's amazing how petty people are.

#2304653 Tim Thomas.

I couldn't care less about the politics, I just think it's funny that there wasn't the level of hatred towards Tim Thomas that there is now until he stepped into the political landscape. Suddenly he's a jerk!

#2303949 Red Wings Next Captain

Posted by gcom007 on 30 May 2012 - 05:04 PM

Not sure how I feel about Zetterberg as the captain. Wouldn't be terrible, but I don't like that he's our best choice at this point. He's got 95% of what it takes to be a great captain, but there just seems to be something missing. I'm not even sure what it is, but something about it just doesn't feel right to me.

#2303503 Chances of landing Parise?

Posted by St. Michael (the Red Wing) on 28 May 2012 - 11:03 AM

Im not going by assumption. I'm going by Zach Parise himself saying it when he was talking about Minnesota and where he grew up on a radio interview. He spent about 3 and a half years in Faribault when he played for Shattuck before he went to North Dakota. Look it up.

I did look it up. So when his dad J.P took over as hockey director at Shattuck St. Mary's in 1989, Zach didnt move there or anything? I did look it up. It's funny how i can look up a radio interview you "supposedly" heard. Yeah Zach played at Shattuck and was one of my biggest rivals in high school hockey. Culver Military Academy is where I went (same place as Ryan Suter for 2 years) and I know all about Shattuck and those big names that have attended there. I live close to Faribault now too. Yes. Apparently you dont but keep posting lies on here its cool. You need cred. Cheers

#2303101 Who's going to make it big if anyone?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 May 2012 - 09:17 PM

When you say "elite", I think of star players, as in Datsyuk or Zetterberg.

Based on that, the safe answer is none.

Really Awesome!
