#2575615 2/26 GDT : Red Wings 3 at San Jose Sharks 2

LOL

 

I still remember that it was Dennis LaRue specifically that screwed us back then, intentionally allowing the Pens to play with 6 men for like 30 full seconds. 

 

He was also the ******* that blew down the notorious Brad May goal.  It was such a bad call that Mike Murphy, who never admits the refs did anything wrong, actually in the intro to the next game said LaRue made the wrong call, and the league told him so, but he used his on-ice authority to overturn Torontos ruling.

 

Yeah....fans don't forget things so easily...

Funny that the lame ass sharks fans always complain about the refs, especially considering the refs last night were clearly ignoring a lot of obvious calls against the sharks to try to help them out.

 

So glad the Wings won in regulation, so the sharks didn't even get the loser point.

 

Stay butthurt, little fish fans.

Does the nbcsn feed look kinda blurry and low def to anyone else?  Or is it just my cable company?

Great to see the boys pull out a win in an early weekend game.  (being they normally choke on these afternoon games)

 

And absolutely beautiful to see them pull out a decisive win despite all the complete bull s*** non-calls, and chintzy calls later on by the moron refs whose main intentions seemed to be to try to throw the game...err...uhhh...I mean, "even up" the game since we were the dominant team since the puck drop.

#2559910 Q and A with Teemu Pulkkinen

LOL, that second to last question is going to make everyone on this board feel really old.

 

 

What players did he idolize growing up?

 

Ovechkin and Stamkos...




#2559070 Happy Holidays To All My Fellow LGW'rs!

Let us not forget what Christmas is all about...

 

Celebrating the birth of Santa Claus on the frozen northern tundras, and his subsequent rise to power with the help of his reindeer army.

Mmmm, quite.   Indeed.

Nail biter for sure.

 

Glad Petr got a chance to redeem himself after that bad 1st and 3rd goal.

 

Like others, while I had hope, I wasn't quite sure what would happen this season, but am being pleasantly surprised almost weekly.

WTF is with the moron camera guys cutting to that annoying and awkward corner cam every time there is a dam powerplay, for the entirety?

 

I wish I could jump through my TV screen into their truck and punch them in the face and tell them to quit trying to be artsy and different and just show the regular damn camera angles.

 

Jeez...

Its unfortunate that whenever anyone is accused of something, that there is a group of people that immediately grab the pitchforks and torches and start chanting "guilty" with zero facts at all.

 

Lets be rational and reserve judgement until the facts are in. 




#2533459 Paul McCartney and the Red Wings

Posted by sleepwalker on 01 August 2014 - 01:46 PM

lol @ the city of Pittsburgh

 

 

They are such insecure pansies that they had to have their mayor ask Paul to put a Pens sticker on there alongside the Wings sticker, so their poor widdle feelings didn't get hurt.




#2533151 Wings stuff on clearance at Dick's

Lol, no doubt.  The last couple years, this has become one of the most overly PC and heavily censored websites I have experienced in my 15+ years of internet. 

 

Especially absurd when you consider this is a hockey website.

 

Whatever...




#2531770 Confused on the direction of this team going forward

Posted by sleepwalker on 12 July 2014 - 08:50 AM

Hilarious gif!

 

 

 

To answer the OP though...

 

Hindsight is always 20/20. 

 

Even at his current contract vs. points/goals produced, Franzen is a good deal.  People like to forget that because he is streaky and admittedly looks lazy as f*** out there a lot of the time.  Name another player that can consistently put up those numbers at his cap hit though.  Can't.  Its not possible in the current NHL.

 

Filppula has  great potential, but for whatever reason was unable to reach it with us.  To say Weiss is half the player is silly.  You are seriously going to judge him as a hockey player based on one season where he played the first half severely injured, and had to leave for surgery the second?  Come on...  Its way to early to speak on Weiss as a Wing.

 

Tootoo was bought out as a courtesy to him, so he could continue his NHL career (if a team picks him up) instead of being buried in the minors.

 

 

And you didn't even mention Quincey or Cleary.  Those are the two players that are going to handicap the team this season.  (not to mention they are both getting absurd paychecks for sucking)




#2529730 Quincey re-signed by DET. 2 yr s $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by sleepwalker on 03 July 2014 - 10:27 AM

What shocks me most is that there are actually some people defending this signing.

 

Whether you think Quincey totally sucks or is OK, I think anyone that actually watches hockey and still has firing brain cells can agree that there is no way in HELL that is Quincey worth $4.25 mil.

 

I've never been one to jump on the Holland hate bandwagon, nor do I hate him now, but I seriously have to wonder what the hell he was thinking with this signing.

 

To even bring him back to begin with was a dumb move, but to then sign him to another 2 years and give him a RAISE on top of that is beyond comprehension to me.
