#2327728 2012 Lockout Watch

Posted by sleepwalker on 04 September 2012 - 05:05 PM

Screw the league, and screw the players. Go ahead and strike.


We know you are pro NHL/GMs and anti-NHLPA, but it has been pointed out to you multiple times already that this is a LOCKOUT, and yet you keep saying strike regardless. The players aren't striking, the owners are locking them out. Last CBA, was also a lockout. The one before that? Yep, also a lockout.


#2325960 Should Kronwall have to answer the bell for his hits?

I'd just like to point out that there is a big difference between leaving your feet to jump into a player, and leaving your feet slightly AFTER impact due to the momentum.


#2318685 Are Russian players "really" lazy

Posted by sleepwalker on 12 July 2012 - 02:44 PM

Which is funny you say that because back when Russians played as "Soviets", they were known for having superior chemistry and obsessive preparation stereotypical of a communist environment. There are stories about the KLM Line where they were placed together at a young age, always roomed together, and were inseparable.


This is an interesting point. The fall of the Soviet Union could have played a major part in the shift, if there indeed was a shift, in attitude.

Under Soviet rule the mentality was strict and of do whats best for the team/country/organization, teamwork achieves the utimate goal. The fall of the Soviet Union was a very interesting event as the country shifted from a strict regimented communist country, to a wild-west true-capitalist gangland utopia in a very quick fashion. And the mentality thus shifted from "teamwork" to "self/money, etc."

#2318568 Holland Content with Current Roster

Posted by sleepwalker on 12 July 2012 - 10:35 AM

Seriously.... I even posted the quote. How is it that you are the ONLY one reading it that way then?


He is not. I read it the same way, because, well, thats exactly what it said. That Quincy and Smith will "replace" (the exact word he used) Stuart and Lidstrom.

Oh, and I am not some doom and gloom negative person about this off season, I've been staying positive and hoping for the best, so you cannot attempt to refute MY comment by passive attacks and accusing me of only being negative like you did with him. ;)

Lets give it a rest with the Holland bashing ...


You know what I'd like to see people give a rest? (in general, not just here at this forum) Calling anyone with a different opinion or alternate suggestion a "hater" or "basher"

Those are such lame, overused internet terms. Don't agree with me? Oh, you're a hater then. Post any other comments or alternate suggestion? Quit bashing.

Lame.....


#2318270 Reminder: Personal attacks, trolling will not be tolerated

Posted by sleepwalker on 11 July 2012 - 01:31 PM

The one person we're all tiptoeing around naming here is pretty clearly only around to troll. The only type of posts he makes are derogitory towards the Wings, Holland and posters here at LGW. That's what really gets my goat.

I'm proud of how many great fans from other teams we have on LGW. Just off the top of my head I can think of posters from the Sharks and Preds community who've come here and made very intelligent, constructive posts while dodging the odd attack here or there based on their obvious love of another team. MacAttack used to post regularly from the position of a win-deprived Leafs fan who respects the Wings. For each of our playoff opponents in recent years I'd say we've had good cross-forum posters who I hope will come back for future games day threads.

My point is that those of us who are tired of CentCougar aren't taking that position simply because he's a Wild fan.


Yeah, since you already named him, the fact that their has been so much static here and this thread is even necessary has tons to do with that centcougar kid. Myself and others have made posts letting people know that he is just a hockey forum troll, and does this same trolling on various other teams forums for fun too and to just ignore him, but I know that is easier said than done, and obviously some people couldn't ignore his incessant trolling, which let us here to this thread...


#2313910 Twitter Sources Not To Cite

Posted by sleepwalker on 03 July 2012 - 06:11 PM

Its one thing to repeat a rumor you may have heard somewhere from time to time, but Eklund just straight up makes s*** up off the top of his head daily and creates his own rumors and then tries to spread them.

I think its safe to say he is one of the least credible "sources" in all of pro sports and without a doubt the least credible in the NHL.


#2312246 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by sleepwalker on 01 July 2012 - 06:34 PM

Wings fans are too hard to please.. For months now, it's been "Sign a Predator! Sign a Predator!"

Now the Wings sign one and everyone's pissed off...



haha


Uhhhhmm...we were talking about Suter, not Douchebag McWhistle.


#2312220 Red Wings Sign Mikael Samuelsson to 2-yr, $6m deal (w/full NTC)

Posted by sleepwalker on 01 July 2012 - 06:20 PM

Samuelsson and Tootoo?

And I was looking forward to today, but this sh*t is getting ridiculous now. I feel like Ashton Kutcher is going to jump out and let us all know that we are being punked at any minute now.


#2308079 Red Wings Prepared to Offer Hudler Contract

Posted by sleepwalker on 19 June 2012 - 02:07 PM

i just think a lot of people keep dogging him when he had a pretty darn good year this year.



I don't think anyones main beef with Hudler is that he can't score points. Its that his size is a MAJOR liability. Even with his MMA training and getting all diesel a slight breeze in the rink is still enough to knock him off the puck...


#2306482 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Posted by sleepwalker on 11 June 2012 - 02:43 AM

He was a solid d-man, bummer to see him go, although like Lidstrom retiring this off season, we all knew it was an inevitability.


I feel kinda bad for Stuart with all the family stuff and not being able to fly the entire family out to see him. Yet another glaring example of why you should NEVER get romantically involved with someone who already has kids by someone else. Its almost guaranteed to be drama. (I know, been there, done that)





#2305615 Throw the bank at RFA Shea Weber?

Posted by sleepwalker on 06 June 2012 - 12:52 PM

The really funny thing is, Burt commited the worst cheap shot in hockey history




No he didn't. Not even top 100.

Now, the aftermath of the cheap shot and ensuing pile up had some of the worst RESULTS in hockey, yes, but the shot itself was far from being the worst cheap shot in hockey history.


#2305599 Alexander Radulov.

Posted by sleepwalker on 06 June 2012 - 12:17 PM

that dude is a piece of s***




Agreed 100%


Its also bulls*** that they were allowed to bring him in to try to help their Cup run. You can guarantee that loophole is going to be slammed shut during the next CBA.


#2305594 Darren McCarty seeks protection from former pals

Posted by sleepwalker on 06 June 2012 - 12:07 PM

Hopefully having all their names and locations publically published like this for all to see, in an area, and entire region, that absolutely loves the late 90s Wings and the old grind line, will be enough encouragement for them to knock that s*** off and leave Mac and his wife alone.


#2304970 Throw the bank at RFA Shea Weber?

Posted by sleepwalker on 03 June 2012 - 12:51 PM

then picking up Zach Parise or Semin


Hey, theres that enforcer that everyone is always complaining that we need.

BONGO SOLO!!!

#2294638 WCQF Game 5 GDT : Red Wings 1 at Predators 2

Posted by sleepwalker on 20 April 2012 - 09:42 PM

Wow.

I have not been so disappointed in the Wings in many years. What a sad exit. This is worse than the loss to the Oilers about 5 years ago. f***.....



(I'm trying hard to keep myself from just spouting off about the Wings, but damn, its really hard after these past several months to keep my tongue from unleashing some s*** I might regret saying about the team I love)
