#2479188 All movie Character team

Posted by BadgerBob on 31 January 2014 - 12:49 PM
















The first line is relying on the chemistry of Gordon Bombay and Charlie Conway, along with Mystery, Alaska's Connor Banks's slapshot.  Doug Dorsey's injured eye heals well enough to play, and he's teamed with former junior phenom Dean Youngblood and Ned Braden, called up from the Chiefs.  The third line is made up of the Hansons, who aren't that great separate but are much better than the sum of its parts.  The fourth line of Dean Portman and towering Ogie ogilthorpe, centered by Youngblood's junior nemesis Carl Racki, give the team plenty of toughness.


On defense, former Chief's captain Johnny Upton and Mo Wanchuk join their teammates from the Chiefs.  Skank Marden and Jon Biebe from Mystery anchor the second pair.  On the third pairing, we add some tougness with Andre "Poodle" Lussier and a PP QB in Jesse Tyler (Mighty Ducks).


In net we have former Chief Denis Lemieux and Youngblood's former junior teammate Heaver.


The coaching staff is judge Walter Burns, assisted by Reg Dunlop and Youngblood's former coach Murray Chadwick.  Joe McGrath is the GM, finally given the chance to run a team not teetering on the brink of bankruptcy.


I'd take Fulton Reed over Jesse Tyler, he didn't even make the JV squad. Can't just have one bash brother, it doesn't work.

You absolutely have to put Doug Glatt and Ross Rhea on the 4th line.

#2479130 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by The Secret on 31 January 2014 - 10:16 AM

Really, Another replace the coach thread?!


Any who, The answer to this question is very easy... a no brainer really. The ONLY person suitable to replace Babcock is ME! No one else anywhere is more suitable. Watch out Babs... once word gets out your a goner! Then you will see me take this very same team to the Stanley Cup parade... and the Super Bowl parade... and what ever parade they are having this year for the Tranna Maple Leafs!!!

Aaron Downey.


He was the last person to bring us a Cup, so a natural choice.

Franzen needs to kill his wife and kid and then himself?





#2472859 Post your hockey collection

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 13 January 2014 - 09:50 PM

Is that blades of steel I see up there?! 5 year old amato would be proud :P

That definitely is Blades of Steel.  I think there's over 90 games in that collection now.  There's the original, one for N64 as well and I think one other blades of steel believe it or not.  It's like the movie Slapshot....the original will always be the best.


Does your mother know that your bed isn't made, and it lacks sheets?

That side of the room is not unpacked properly.  There's a corner piece for a sectional on the bed right now.  :lol: I was more worried about the toys, hence my mother would likely slap me.

#2478697 Tim Thomas is a dope: It's a scientific fact.

Posted by The Secret on 29 January 2014 - 10:25 AM

Still don't see what makes him a dope but regardless the guy is a scrapper and still is a great goalie... I wouldn't mind at all if they did not resign The Monster and did sign Timmy the Tank on a one year. Thomas can still be a #1 goalie and he'd challenge Howard every step of the way. A Howard-Thomas tandem would be wicked! Like Fuhr-Moog or Hasek-Osgood

#2478815 Wings interested in parenteau ?

Posted by Richdg on 29 January 2014 - 06:58 PM

Just a reference. PA is 6-0/195 RHed and 30 years old. last 3 seasons he scored 20, 18, and 18 in goals, and played all but 1 game in those 3 years. he makes 4 million per season.


Ryan Callahan: 5-11/190 RHed 28 years old and will soon be making 7 million per year. Over the last 3 seasons he has scored: 23, 29, 16 goals. he has also missed 21 games.


yes Callahan is considered to be a great player. But is he worth 3 million more per season? No. PA is a very good and cap friendly option vs Callahan.

#2478797 Is it 1970 again?

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 29 January 2014 - 05:36 PM

I honestly think its more everyone on this board is bi polar. When we win we are the best, when we loose we Are the dead wings. Tbh some of you redwings fans are kinda embracing. (To Trade Datsyuk is an all time low)

I'm kinda ashamed to even come on here, read, post and to call you guys hockey fans.

I wouldn't really label the board as a whole in that category, but I do agree that calling for a Datsyuk trade is wayyy overboard.  That's about as knee jerk as it gets.

#2478834 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by esteef on 29 January 2014 - 08:58 PM

We should add a player like Tootoo to the 4th line.


#2478112 1/28 GDT: Red Wings 0 @ Flyers 5

Posted by DickieDunn on 28 January 2014 - 12:52 PM

& the most "man games lost to injury"

(meaning each game that a player misses is added together all year (ex.) Tonight we have 4 "man games lost")



Last I saw they were behind Pitt and a couple other teams, although they may have caught up by now.  


Seriously, as pissed as I am about Tatar's playing time vs. Cleary or the other grinders, if the Wings make the playoffs Babcock deserves the Adams, handsdown.

#2478047 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by RyanBarnes! on 28 January 2014 - 11:23 AM

Matthias has been on my wishlist for a couple seasons now.. He's young, affordable, works hard, and can win faceoffs. I'd love to add him.

And as you know, he is a former Red Wings draft choice, so Holland might even consider to pick him up!

#2478030 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by kipwinger on 28 January 2014 - 10:25 AM

Wonder if gaborik makes it to free agency.. Although I don't know if we'd want to pay him as much as he'll demand elsewhere anyway


I've always loved Gaborik, and for the right price (significantly less than he makes now) I'd still take him.  But honestly, I'd like to see a Jeff Carter/James Van Riemsdyk type of guy.  Those two aren't going anywhere, but you get the idea.
