#2175052 2012 Winter Classic, Jan 2.

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 13 May 2011 - 12:15 PM

The downers for this matchup, besides seeing the Flyers for the second time in three years, are the sexier options we've all imagined for both teams. Flyers vs. Pittsburgh Penguins at Penn State.


Hahahaha, I know what they're getting at - that they would've wanted a Battle of PA match-up if both teams hadn't already had turns - but the funny part is that it sounds like something the NHL would do despite their past appearances.

Blah. I care about this one even less than last year's. And what the heck is the point of putting in the Rangers if you're not going to have it at Yankee Stadium? That's pretty much the ONLY reason to have the Rangers in a WC at all - the location! Of course, it's not the same ol' Yankee Stadium anyway, but still, at least you've got a semblance of tradition there. Why not save them until you can get the date you want at the place you want? It's not like they're having some kind of surge in popularity that makes it necessary for them to be in it this year.


#2174697 Thanks For the Great Season, Wings!

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 13 May 2011 - 01:06 AM

All right, I think I can finally pull myself out of my funk long enough to genuinely say that it's been a great season, and I appreciate my boys doing what they do.

I had the opportunity to thank Jimmy Howard face-to-face (brag, brag) for a great season last year, and if I meant it then, which I did, then I sure as hell mean it this year. I think we did the best thing you can do other than winning the Cup, and that's to show heart. One part of me wants to say, "Who the f cares about consolations right now?" but knowing that my team gives all they can because they want to and will continue to do so in the coming years keeps me going, even when I don't really want to be comforted. Thanks, guys.


#2174626 Changes in the offseason

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 13 May 2011 - 12:03 AM

Trade Hudler. Kick Ericsson down the street. Those would be the main two. Other than that, I feel like we could do better than Salei and Filppula. I really want to keep Filppula, but he did exactly what he always does: wakes up for a couple of games and then goes back to sleep. We just don't get to see the sleep part this time.

Draper and Osgood have earned the right to do whatever the F they want. As much as I think it's time for Ozzie to retire (and I really hate saying that), Detroit's known for its loyalty, and this is the part where he gets that gift and makes everybody else glad that they're playing for the Wings, too.

Pretty sure Mo's done, so I doubt we have to worry about that. Pretty sure Lids isn't done...or at least I want to believe that, so I'm not going to think about it at any rate. I WISH we could get rid of Rafalski...I'm not completely unhappy with him on the whole, but I AM unhappy with his play for the amount of money we pay him.

I don't know who to fill in...gotta think about that for a while. Bringing up Mursak would probably be a good start. I'd definitely like to add some size. EDIT: Wait, I meant physicality. We don't need any more "Big Rigs"; we need some tough suckers.

From Red Wings Front comes this quote from our one and only Homer (we have lots of homers, but only one Homer):


DETROIT — Here’s Tomas Holmstrom’s response when asked about Pavel Datsyuk’s injury.

“Everybody’s fresh. Fresh like a daisy,” Holmstrom said.


That's right, motherf***ers, and these daisies are ready to KILL!!!

#2170532 Superstitions

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 10 May 2011 - 01:32 AM

Hahahaha, sorry.. that is the strangest, cutest superstition yet.


No need to apologize...it's totally weird, I know. ;) I just couldn't help but notice that the one guy I don't despise on the Sharks wasn't doing squat, so I figured it was worth a try to jinx the rest of them. Only me...


#2163699 Who's the better coach?

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 01 May 2011 - 05:38 PM

If we lose the next game we are not going to win this series. That's what I meant by saying we are on the brink of elimination.


If we lose the next game, we are on the verge of complete suckitude. If we lose the game after that, THEN we are not going to win the series.


#2161874 WCSF Game 1 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Sharks 2 (OT)

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 30 April 2011 - 03:00 AM

Need more shots on goal. Period. I could stop there, but for some reason I'm feeling unusually positive tonight, so I will say that if we had to lose the first game, it's a hell of a lot better than losing 4-3 like last year. Jimmy was great - even though the Sharks supposedly have such superior firepower compared to the Coyotes, we kept them down to 2 GA, just like the Coyotes (plus he found some time to show Pavelski a little glove to boot). I think that's pretty good news - if we can keep that part consistent, I KNOW we can improve our SOG, so that's kinda heartening. I'd feel a lot less confident if it were the other way around...it's too hard to play the "first team to 7 goals" game with San Jose.


#2156231 Money On The Board - Playoff Style

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 22 April 2011 - 02:42 AM

I'm at 10 whole dollars so far. Hmm, maybe I should've added a few more incentives. Oh well, if my total looks low at the end, I'll throw in a few extra bucks...call it the "if I'm accidentally a cheapskate" proviso.


#2156216 Lidstrom nominated for Lady Byng

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 22 April 2011 - 01:01 AM

No kidding?! Cool! Congrats, Nick! Jolly good to see one of our other dignified gentlemen filling in for Mr. Datsyuk whilst he settled his dispute with Mr. Perry. Sometimes biting one's thumb at one's rival just isn't enough to express one's indignation at a certain offense.


#2155625 WCQF Game 4 GDT: Red Wings 6 at Coyotes 3

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 21 April 2011 - 01:08 AM

HUGS FOR EVERYBODY, AHHHH!!!! I don't even know what to say. This is so...RAD!! I didn't know they could do it in 4, but I thought they might...5 sounded more reasonable, but a sweep didn't seem out of the question. Thanks so much Wings for exceeding expectations!

I love that Howard quote...might have to put that in my sig.


#2152417 Have you got your RED on?

Same crappy phone camera (couldn't find the thing you plug the card into for the real one), but it seemed like a shame to not post a pic of two big, beautiful red beads while they're still unblemished by any white (and hopefully they will continue to be so).


#2152389 WCQF Game 3 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Coyotes 2

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 18 April 2011 - 07:15 PM

Let's play ALL 60 minutes...not the last 40, not the first 40 and then 10 at the end...no. Every. Single. Minute. It's just one game - let's do it.

Ansar Khan is saying Game 6 at the earliest:

You mean Game 2 of the next series.

Posted by MulesWillFly93 on 17 April 2011 - 01:02 AM

Can there be like a Jay-Z Trophy for Biggest Pimping in the League so they can just give it to Datsyuk every year? Dude's like a living, breathing bitchslap to the rest of the NHL.
