#2549820 Forsberg in HOF, Fedorov equal?

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 18 November 2014 - 08:17 PM

I put off replying to this topic all day because I wanted to write a dissertation on why I think Feds is a lock for first ballot, and how I believe that a lot of his reported "attitude" problems hinged on cultural issues, and to reflect on the ways I feel Feds is superior to Forsberg.

But now I'm sleepy and hungry and I don't want to say anything other than

Fedorov is betterov

#2538837 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 07 October 2014 - 03:22 PM

I think the real question here is where the hell are you guys getting these cool ass talking dogs?

#2538584 Will Cleary make the roster? (poll)

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 06 October 2014 - 03:29 PM

If he turns out to be soft in the long run, can we change professor x to hugs and kisses?

I don't know, ask Agent Orange. Or was it The Player Formerly Known as Steve? Who knows!?

#2538452 Callahan, Ferraro and Porter placed on Waivers

Posted by DickieDunn on 05 October 2014 - 01:20 PM

Callahan won't get claimed.  He had one fluke season where a bunch of pucks went in for him in the AHL.  He's not a scorer, he's not fast, he's not big, he's a projected 4th line agitator.  He also didn't look at all like an NHL player in the preseason.  Neither did Ferraro.

#2537201 Datsyuk 2nd degree separated shoulder injury - out approx 4 weeks

Posted by Z and D for the C on 24 September 2014 - 04:26 PM

Flames have half a dozen guys for that stuff.


Yeah, if we could only be the flames with their 4th from last place finish in the standings last year.


Well that's not being fair you mentioned Vancouver too, they did a lot better than the Flames: tied for 5th worst record.


You're right frankgrimes. we should model ourselves after those teams.

#2536422 Mantha's Injury

Posted by krsmith17 on 17 September 2014 - 11:28 AM

Welcome to LGW, where everything is blown way out of proportion!...

#2536231 Nice article on Mantha

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 15 September 2014 - 02:07 PM

Anthony (Tony) Mantha, aka Scarface, say ello to my lil friend. Put him on Dat's line and watch him shine...

Please don't do that, now I'm gonna get him confused with the Player Formerly Known as Steve. Or was it Agent Orange?


#2535532 Dekeyser signed. 2 yrs $2.187 million AAV

Posted by Echolalia on 04 September 2014 - 08:46 AM

It could have nothing to do with money. It could something completely obscure, if the case was they were far apart we probably would have heard something by now about it. It could be like Tatar where they were just different on how long they wanted the contract to be for.


I wonder if they're trying to gauge whether Alfredson will be playing or not, and basing how much money is potentially available, and how to structure the contract on that.  It would explain the delay in signing a contract, and it would also explain why both Holland and Dekeyser seem like they aren't too worried about Dekeyser not signing here.

#2535289 potential team names for las vegas!

outside the building is the sign..."you'll never find a more retched hive, of scum and villainy"

perfect for Vegas

And Sean Avery

#2534849 Datsyuk or Fedorov?

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 23 August 2014 - 07:26 PM

Datsyuk much more complete player to me. Although I can not imagine the number Federov would have put up now.


Have people forgotten that Fedorov played defense, scored 56 goals while winning the Selke, and often played with Shawn Burr on a TKO line shadowing the opposition's top players? Fedorov was a BEAST on both ends of the ice. He was very much a complete player.

#2533868 Flyers agree to terms with Del Zotto

Posted by number9 on 07 August 2014 - 07:23 PM

So everyone ******* and moans about how our team has too many injury prone players and too many dud players like Quincey, Cleary etc, but we want a guy with serious injury problems who the Rangers fans came to recognize as a dud for his terrible defense, and who after being traded for by Nashville was shown the door?



#2532940 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by rick zombo on 24 July 2014 - 11:41 AM

:lol: Cleary is making more than Booth too? Hey Holland, Booth is a local kid, has some chemistry with Weiss, he just signed for $1.1M... I am just baffled. Baffled.  Why the hell wouldn't Holland give Booth a 1 year try?  All these guys that are getting bought out are signing 1 year deals for the cheap to earn the next big deal.  You have to figure Booth's camp called Holland.  Holland could have had him for pennies, now when he is a UFA next season, he will get a huge raise...He obviously didn't go to TO to win a Cup next year (like Heatley is trying to do and Richards as well.)  He was looking for a job to earn a fatter paycheck next season and Holland isn't even answering phone calls he is happy with his team and waiting to sign Alfie. I get more and more mad everyday watching quality (not high end, but quality) talent go elsewhere for less money than Cleary and #KFQ signed for...and ALL better than Cleary and #KFQ...


Sorry guys, its just so hard not to get frustrated and confused...


I think we all know by now and it's obvious that Holland is a respected man around the league but a terrible decision maker and was made to look like a hero when he took over a star-studded team that everyone wanted to play for and there were no cap concerns in stopping players from coming here. Well those glory days are over and we now see how truly incompetent Holland really is as a GM. I'm just wondering how long the Illitch family will be fooled into thinking he is still a top GM.


Comments like these make me want to cancel my subscription to LGWs.


Holland is now all of a sudden a bad GM because he didn't sign David friggin Booth?



#2533227 Tatar Signs 3 Year Deal $2.75 mill AAV

Posted by number9 on 28 July 2014 - 09:32 PM

too much money. He best get 25-30 goals in each of his years...this is the reason the salary cap was put in place. There is no way a sub twenty goal scoring RFA should be anywhere near this amount. But it is Ken Holland. He hasn't changed anything in his approach. This means Diesel will get at least $4M.

Also I still hate the "diesel" nickname
