I think Justin Bourne does a good job explaining what I think our problem is mostly due to here:  http://www.thescore....nhl/news/864998

I choose not to gamble.  This strategy has resulted in zero money lost.

Got 13 16 bucks on the Habs.

People all over the internet keep saying "I want these sheets!".  They're nuts.  Who the hell wants Mike Babcock's disapproving glare watching over everything they do in bed?  You can almost see him thinking "Luke Glendening works harder than that" whenever you're making love to your partner. 


Screw that.

Yes, but there are also people in these threads that take the practice of discourse and their opinions way too seriously while at the same time not really knowing what they are talking about.


Discourse shmishcourse.  I ain't come here to join a debate team.  I came here to talk hockey.  Don't need a Ph.D. in Rhetoric from Carnegie Mellon to do that.  Just need a coupla cold Labatt Blues, the ol' eyeball test, and some homespun cliches.  Just as Don Cherry intended.     

#2621532 Remaing RFAs to be signed - Jurco, Pulkkinen, Aubry

Posted by GoWings1905 on 24 July 2015 - 07:15 PM

I'm still a huge Jurco supporter. I think he has a ton of upside despite a pretty mediocre looking second season. The Red Wings botched his development last season -- he either needed to play big minutes in Grand Rapids another year or actually be utilized properly in Detroit. Nobody is going to do s*** offensively with Drew Miller and Luke Glendening. 


Hoping for a nice rebound from Jurco and ideally spending more time with Sheahan as his center going forward.

#2615272 Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

I think Tater and Dekaiser are going to be good, Larkun is a future stud though

I hope Nyqwist can be as good as Federov and Lindstrom were.

#2618614 Wings sign Brad Richards 1 yr, $3 million

#97 is cool, anything but #90.  I am pretty sure they won't let him wear #91, he may not even want to do so. But remember, #11 is also opening up...#17 is open, #22, #23 (I am sure Lashoff won't be back) There's always #24, #25, #28, #32, #33....along with a plethora of higher numbers...


SAY NO TO 90!!!

#2613618 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 09 June 2015 - 10:53 AM


Well perhaps it should die, because what they do as an organization has little bearing on the Wings. Caring a hate-torch for the Hawks is petty. It's what Chicago did when they were jealous of Detroit for 20 years. I don't want that going the other way while they're on top as Detroit retools.


So, unless they're beating the Wings in the Cup final, or keeping them from making the playoffs, I'll reserve my loathing for teams like Tampa, Montreal, Boston, and eventually Florida and Buffalo.


But this is just how I feel. Personal preference.


How is hating the Blackhawks more petty than hating any other team in the league? Hatred isn't rational. It's part of being a fan and having rivalries.  


For me it's not only deeply ingrained from the longstanding Wings rivalry, but it's also that their current roster has several players who are pretty easy to hate compared to the Lightning.  Then throw their fanbase on top of it and it comes pretty easily. 


If I'm picking a team I'd want to win the Cup that's not the Wings, between the Blackhawks and Tampa, it's a pretty easy choice.  If only to make Eddie Olczyk shed tears that subtly interfere with his happiness.

How awesome would it be to see Yzerman skating the Cup at the United Center in game 6?
