It's back! Due to popular demand I'm bringing back the monthly LGW Schedule Wallpapers for download. I've limited the resolutions options a bit (6 for now), but I'm open to adding a few as well as long as the size is reasonably popular. Hope you guys like them! I plan on going back to the different-player-per-month lineup I've done in years past.
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...

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.
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.

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?
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.
