#2561904 Petry next Oiler to be shopped - FTLOG Kenny, get it done!

Posted by krsmith17 on 08 January 2015 - 06:41 PM

Yup, Quincey is awful defensively, terrible on the PK... Do people even bother watching the games anymore, or just spew random s*** based on the "in" thing to say... Well news flash, Quincey has been one of our most consistent, reliable defenders for a year now...




#2562045 McGratton on waivers

Posted by kipwinger on 09 January 2015 - 02:50 PM

 

Then Detroit could claim him, and pay Lucic back for spearing DeKeyser, then wave him.

 

Then Montreal could..............

 

Wouldn't that be great?  If like 5 or 6 teams in a row claimed McGrattan the day before they played the Bruins just so Lucic could get punched in the face. 

 

I hate fighting, but I think I hate Lucic more.  This is a toughie.

I respect Mirtle, Yost and all their other mathfreaks but as soon as I see their name ---> skip article.
 
If I wanted to read math stuff I'd look somewhere else and not at a sports site...with a horrible design

It's ok, a lot of people are frightened by things they don't understand.

Kip let it go buddy. I'm not going to sit here and come up with a dissertation on why I believe fights should be a part of hockey. It's hockey for pete sake. Entertainment. I like the fighting...I like the big hits...I like the skill...I like the scoring....I hate Crosby. 

 

Oh, I get it.  You like sports, and you like fighting, and you like entertainment.  You like sports entertainment.  Gotcha.

1. The Wings DO get after people for dirty hits. Not every single time but E went after Nolan and in previous seasons Bertuzzi stuck up for Pav. It's not always about fighting, there are guys who make their presence known after questionable hits.

2. I know moderation has been a touchy subject lately but I've noticed the number of personal attacks has gone way up in the past few weeks and honestly, it doesn't bring much to the discussion at all.


#2556920 Where were team-mates on the Smith headshot

Great post finally someone is sharing my views on toughness. A few years ago guys like Dmac, Downie or even Shanahan would have wiped the floor with enemies but now the team is a bunch of small fairies that's too easy to intimidate and that's against a Leafs team that didn't even ice Orr and McClaren. Disgusting for a team that once had the heavyweight belt. And people are still wondering why the season ticket list turned from a waiting list to running commercials... The mixture just isn't there. Former Wings were exciting to watch because they were built in skill, grit and an overall hardworking hockey club who could beat the other team in many ways and stood up for each other. The Lemieux incident nowadays would result in a crying for Quinta instead of taking justice in the own hand and let someone go Berserk soon sad

 

 

So your blaming poor ticket sales on the fact we don't fight anymore.... Would have nothing to do with the economy.

 

I would love for you to explain to Bob Probert's wife and 4 kids as well as countless other familys that lost someone way too soon because it will sell more tickets. Ignoring the long term effects of head trauma due to toughness is ignorance. 




#2554807 Jonathan Bernier - Nelson Mandela Comments

Posted by rick zombo on 08 December 2014 - 11:29 AM

Stupid question in my mind. I mean, he knew the guy was famous and that's more than enough. Same thing here I know Mandela was famous but not why had to search it myself so a total nonstory.

 

It's like asking a hockeyplayer about a famous athlete from another sport. The guys should focus on hockey and that's all that counts, some reporters these days jesus..

 

Wait. Did you just excuse Bernier of his ignorance because you also didn't know who Mandela was? :lol: 

 

And this "hockey players" should only focus on hockey thing is complete crap, by the way. I'd expect these people to have, at least, a general f****** clue about what's going on outside of the sport. I guarantee that Bernier knows who Miley Cyrus is, for example,  FFS.

If you don't know who Nelson Mandela is then your education system failed you...




#2540760 Monthly schedule wallpapers?

Posted by Matt on 15 October 2014 - 07:41 AM

http://www.mw32.com/ is the best (sorry Matt yours got to be too busy for me and you weren't really interested in suggestions.....which is fine)

plus the guy at monkeywrench does all Michigan area teams, like the Griffins.

To each his own, but I don't recall seeing suggestions other than different screen resolution requests. It's not difficult to throw a red tint on a wood texture and just slap logos/times/tv on and call it a wallpaper. I prefer add more detail, additional time, etc., into these as I have done for well over a decade. That's all.

 

As for everyone else: As long as they're the 16:10 and 16:9 aspect ratio re-sizing them is fine. What I may end up doing is the high-resolution version of each ratio, then allow your PCs/Macs to scale them down to fit.

Came to LGW to get my wallpaper on for October, and can't find anything. Is Matt or anyone else making monthly wallpapers? They are much better than anything I have the talent to make.

 

Go Wings!

I check the forums multiple times a day for the wallpaper too. Looking forward to the ones this year, Matt makes them better and better each year.

Now the glass and boards at the JLA can sleep easy knowing that Sammy won't be around to hurt them anymore.  

 

Opposition logos have never felt so safe.
