#2593843 ECQF Game 1 GDT : Red Wings at Tampa Bay Lightning, 7:30 EST

Posted by amato on 16 April 2015 - 11:54 AM

 
Lol.  The old "Detroit sucks because it's poor" argument again eh?  Lame.  Tampa's entire economy revolves around bilking retirees out of the social security checks.  Not sure I'd double down on economic pride if I were them. 


Not to mention they had to restrict ticket sales out of fear that wings fans would out number bolt fans on their home ice :P

Actually Yzerman always had a sense of humor.  He was one of the biggest smartasses on the Wings, but he kept it pretty well out of the public.  You didn't really hear stories until later in his career, and especially after he retired.  
 
Though there is the infamous moment of him taunting Domi from the bench with the heavyweight belt gesture after Domi's rematch with Probert.
 
Toews just seems like he has zero personality. 


Agreed. I don't know why they call Toews Captain Serious, they *should* call him Captain Cardboard.

Pull Smith again so we can get second empty netter (or, as I've decided to call the second empty netter in a game, lighting a mup).

If I had a gun with two bullets, and I was in a room with Hitler, Bin Laden and Jack Edwards, I would shoot Jack Edwards twice.

Our goalie tandem has the worst groin against average in the league.


#2550141 CBJ's Jack Johnson files for bankruptcy

The last person I'd trust to handle my multi-million dollar estate is my mother too.  She's a secretary.  No matter how much I love her that doesn't make her capable of handling millions of dollars in assets intelligently or responsibly.  I know this.  Jack Johnson, however, doesn't.  That's why he's an idiot. 
 
NOTE TO ALL PROFESSIONAL ATHLETES:
Hire professionals to take care of your money.  You wouldn't let your parents repair your car, fill your cavities, or install your water heater.  Why would you let them handle your millions of dollars in wealth?

my Dads really good with cars.
And he helped put in my water heater.
And he pulled a bunch of my baby teeth.


#2530770 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by krsmith17 on 09 July 2014 - 10:42 AM

How do people not see how special this Jurco kid is going to be? He has a much higher ceiling than Tatar and I would possibly even consider trading Nyquist before Jurco. Kid is going to be unreal.




#2530769 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by Datsyukian-Deke on 09 July 2014 - 10:33 AM

@ArthurJRegner said #RedWings would like to move players like Landon Ferraro to #Capitals for Mike Green.
 
Annnnd, there goes that.


If Holland is able to trade for Green with Ferraro being the centerpiece and some draft picks I will renounce my will for him to be fired.


#2524800 Todd Bertuzzi will not be re-signed

Posted by kipwinger on 20 June 2014 - 10:07 AM

And thus ends my long time dream of cheering wildly as Todd Bertuzzi is handed the Stanley Cup first after it is presented to Zetterberg (and cheering all the more wildly knowing that the rest of the hockey world is HATING what they're seeing).

#2518679 Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

Because of Franzen's laziness, posters here have taken to name calling.  

 

:sleepy:   Thanks Kenny.

#2515664 Bertuzzi in, Jurco out

Posted by _SP_ on 24 April 2014 - 11:04 PM

So Franzen plays half-arsed out there, loses the puck in his own end between three other Red Wings and gives up an open shot in the slot by Ovechkin-ing his way from the Bruins blue line into his own, and Babcock would rather take out the kid that plays defense?  Good lord.




#2514872 Bertuzzi in, Jurco out

Posted by _SP_ on 24 April 2014 - 06:12 PM

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Abdelkader
Nyquist-Helm-Franzen
Jurco-Sheahan-Tatar
Miller-Legwand-Bertuzzi


Does anyone have a major problem with this lineup?  I would rather Franzen sit, but it won't happen... at least he's on a line he semi-competed well with this year.

 

The kid line carried us into the playoffs... and it was with Nyquist on a different line.  Of course, playing Jurco on a separate line with people he hasn't played with much (remember, he spent a lot of time in GR with those two), he's going to look different or hesitant.  You've got to be able to read your teammates minds when on the ice... so put the guys together that have played together!
