His first post and he's already bagging on Eva! Hilarious!

#2200541 Draper or Hudler?

Posted by 55fan on 23 July 2011 - 08:34 AM

About f'in time this poll went the right way! I can't even believe it was this close, let alone tipped the other way this long...

You forgot to factor in the time zones. When the poll came out Mrs. Hudler, Grandma Hudler, and the Russian Hookers were all asleep or working.

#2198895 Nicklas Lidstrom HHOF Waiting Period

Posted by Nev on 17 July 2011 - 06:49 AM

Jeez Eva, did Messier run over your dog or something?

As for the poster who said Lidstrom wasn't as good as Yzerman. Er, no. Yzerman was, at best the 3rd best center of his era. Lidstrom is, at worst the 2nd best defenceman of all time. Yzerman may mean more to Wings fans for lots of reasons, but no way is he a better player

#2198618 nashville's new home jersey

Posted by PredsFanTheBayouState on 14 July 2011 - 10:13 PM

Really because I think it would be embarrassing to use a lame nickname for your city that tells what you do well as a basis for a sports logo or sweater...

:D :D :D :D :D

Honestly it is a huge step forward, but that logo is still awful. Reminds me of the Nucks last update. :sly:

BTW, sarcasm folks about our logo.

No hate here, it is the best logo ever.

that is not the best logo ever.would hate that on the front on my jersey.

#2198509 Still some noise about Wings picking up a top 4 Dman

Posted by Travis on 14 July 2011 - 12:11 PM

Maybe Shea Weber will pull a "Hulk Hogan to the NWO" move, and join the Wings.


That would be so awesome. I used to always imagine that if hockey was like wrestling, a player would fire a puck into his own net in a tied playoff game - removing his jersey to reveal the opponent's sweater.

#2198297 Holland becomes US citizen

Posted by Rivalred on 13 July 2011 - 10:53 AM

Bet some LGW folks were threatening to call INS if he didn't land a big name FA this summer, therefore he was forced into becoming a citizen.

#2198071 Just for fun

Posted by 13dangledangle on 12 July 2011 - 09:21 AM

Folks around here are pretty burnt out on line threads. Bump this topic come October and it will be much more popular.

Yeah, thanks a lot blueadams. :ranting:

#2197765 Arbitration Hearing Dates

Posted by Doc Holliday on 10 July 2011 - 10:00 PM

Nashville has 13 forwards and 5 defensemen already signed along with 2 goalies. They have $23M available in Cap space, so unless the arbitrator awards Weber a 1 yr $24M contract, they shouldn't have to trade anyone....

The Devils, only have $7.3M available Cap, with 11 fwds, 7 D and 2 goalies. I guess $7.5M is feasible for Parise, but not sure he will get awarded that much. Even if he was awarded $7M that would give the 12 fwds with no room for injury call ups, in that scenario they would have to trade someone for sure. But I think he may get awarded somewhere around $5.5M to $6M... I'd take Rolston as a rental off their hands for the year...

For the last time, the Predators have an internal cap.

#2197324 Red Wings Name New Assistant Coaches

Posted by NvrFrgtRussian5 on 08 July 2011 - 11:18 AM

I have to say I am incredibly pissed off about them not bringing in Boughner. I think it is a huge mistake not getting a two time Memorial cup winning coach who was a defenseman and has ties to the area. I get the feeling that they might have just hired young guys at the wrong time to do so.

Have people ever thought maybe Bougher didn't want to come here? He wanted to be with his family.

#2197160 Red Wings Name New Assistant Coaches

One of the coaches is the NHL 11 assistant coach AI.

Expect to see shift times increase to ~5 minutes.

#2197005 Gittin Tougher

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 July 2011 - 10:51 PM

Fighting aside, it's the sticking up for your teammates is what I hope he does and then it rubs off on Abdelkader and Ericsson. It drove me nuts when Stuart was targeted and got his jaw busted and Ericsson and Abdelkader did nothing what-so-ever. They just stood there and looked stupid. Stuart, at the time, was Detroit's best defenseman and he was railroaded and knocked out of the season by a career minor leaguer trying to making a name for himself and nobody stood up for Stuart. Commodore will do that when necessary, and if it leads to a fight or 4 or 10, then bonus for us! But Ericsson was signed and paid accordingly, not because of his offensive abilities, but his size and strength, this is the year he needs to display that and use it to his advantage. He needs to get mean, nasty and stick up for teammates. He needs to hang out with countryman Doug Murray and learn how to throw his body around. E will never be a Lidstrom or even Kronwall in the scoring department, but he can before a fierce hitter and a physical body in front of the net, with the right influence and guidance. I believe the likes of Abby, Eaves and Miller can benefit as well, being physical, just go out there and without getting out of position, punish the other team physically! That is what made Aaron Downey so valuable to this team when he was here and especially in 07-08, he just ran everyone down and got the crowd and team into the game, it's too bad he got out of position alot though...

First, inviting a line combo thread and now an enforcer debate? What's with the masochism in this thread?!?
