#2579044 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by Euro_Twins on Yesterday, 07:24 PM

You're partially right.
But most of us thought the doom and gloomers were hilarious and decided to show them how funny it is.

#2578939 Pulkkinen sent back to GR

Posted by amato on Yesterday, 07:58 AM

Pulkkinen is at that spot where he's too good for the ahl and not quite ready to face the nhls top competition, like he would be in the top six role he's projected for.

I think next season we should start with three scoring lines and pulk will be on the third line. That seems ideal at this point, imo.

This has spread to too many threads. How it caught on I have no idea. The secrets of LGW and the 12 year old mind continue to elude me.

teehee.


#2578158 What's with the "giving players hamster names" obsession?

Helping this chain of (somewhat on topic) hi-jinx come to fruition may be my proudest moment on this forum.. Long live Justin Maple Spitter.

On topic, Eric Cole is swell :lol:

 
Gaelic is such an ugly language.  Do yourself a favor and learn something with a little bit of class.  You're better than that. 


I'm gonna need some stats and science to back that up, logic man.

Soooo you don't like posts like this then...lol It still hurts to read...

 

 

I hate Franzen anyway, and I especially hate him on the top line.  Nyke should be there and that is where I am starting him.

 

Nyke - Dats - Z

Weiss - Leggy - Alfie

Fish - Tinky - Abby

Franzine - Barbie - Miller

(Andy - Ferraro - Dirty Harry)

 

Kronner Big E

Smitty - UFA (Morris)

Diesel - UFA (Mitchell)

Laser

 

Ugh (Howard)

Vokoun

 

That's 24 players with Glenny and Jurx stating GR.  Trading Kindl (no so) Fire and Almost Almqvist for a couple of picks.  If you feel the pinch of a lower cap, then Andy can be packaged as well, or maybe sign bit cheaper D-man instead of one of Mitchell or Morris. Unless you'd want to roll the dice on Marchenko and only sign Morris.

 

This was a great rant...lol

 

Not only do I log onto LGW at least once per day and have never heard Callahan referred to as Dirty Harry, but LGW isn't meant to cater exclusively to hardcore forum posters. Nicknames are supposed to make it easier to discuss the team, not to prove how funny and clever you are. Making up nicknames that no one else uses is obnoxious and unnecessary. Watch...

 

It looks like Yellow Mustard is going to miss some time after catching that elbow last night against the Sabres. Its really bad timing too, because our defense already thin with Big Poppa out with a concussion and Bandit serving his 5 game suspension. I would say this forces us to call up someone from GR, most likely Billy the Kid or The Player Formerly Known As Steve. We might be in trouble on the back end until we get some regulars back, since this leaves the Boogeyman as our #1 defenseman. And you know what that means!!!!

 

Boogeyman - Hot Topic

Heebie Jeebies - Dances with Wolves

My Little Pony - Agent Orange

I appreciate your response. Thanks for being decent...and I only said "thanks for playing" because i was clearly being called out and disrespected before hand. I felt like the person i quoted was being unneccessarily instigating.

I was responding to your posts in the same tone and context to which I was being spoken to, if you found that to be instigating, then I apologize for that and "calling you out."

I wasn't disrespecting you, I was stating my opinion on the matter.

SMITTY IS YANDLE/PRUST ALL IN ONE. I love him.

 

Reilly's brother was recently described by one of our peers as "a dynamic two way defenseman".  If Cole punched somebody, he'd be an "elite power forward" in no time.

If I was Erik Cole, I'd come into Detroit and get in a fight the first game I played.  If you punch someone your first game, you can be completely pedestrian the rest of your time here and everyone will still love you.  Just ask Brendan Smith.

You guys are fascinating today...i didn't call you or anyone other than that kid into question. I respect a lot of the people that post here because they post rational, fact based, respectful responses...I just thought his response ("....just because the vibes Holland gives off tell you that he's a crappy gm") was not accurate and was not what i said. But please go back two needlessly making me into "that guy"

 

Friendly advice:

If you didn't include your first paragraph and the last line of your response, nobody would be giving your a hard time right now.  But bringing up your fan history and thumping your chest for being a die hard Wings' fan (on a Wings' forum where 90% of us can easily claim the same credentials or more), then following it up with the snarky comment about "thanks for playing" to close your post came off badly.  Very badly.  Most of us try to be friendly to one another here, even if we disagree with something, but when comments like that are made, people are going to gang up on you.

Likewise, if you stated an opinion in some other thread and jimmyemeryhunter (or whoever) posted something belittling and arrogant in response, myself and probably several others would come to your aid and attack the perpetrator.

Its just how we roll.

 

edit: sorry I was typing this up as your warning was being posted Mabus.  I do think its worthwhile for anyone interested in having an engaging and respectful conversation to be informed of this, though.

As for the trade itself (to get back on topic), I stated my views a couple pages back in a long-winded post I don't feel like retyping up here, but tl;dr: Cole will contribute here, the prospects we gave up won't.  Cole fills a need that the Wings have.  Looks like a good trade.

I've found that being super condescending is a great way to get people to consider my point!
