I didn't like the fact he was cheap shorting and sucker punching guys in a regular basis.

For extreme examples go back and watch the sens and Mtl series from a couple years ago.



Like I said I wouldn't mind having either player on my team. But they BOTH have done a lot of things I don't agree with.

 

 

Even if he does have a few sucker punches under his belt, that's really nothing compared to Lucic's antics.

Oh boy, did you come to the wrong place for advice. Having said that here is my two cents.

If you don't wanna get shutout of the bedroom, I suggest you root for the Hawks tonight. Then go back to rooting for the Wings tomorrow, the Wings players are all men they'll understand.


Better yet, dump her.

Cocky attitude (this isn't the NBA, NFL or soccer!), diver - which seems to plague a lot of habs - for whatever reason.

 

I don't like Lucic and his attitude either but the guy is one of the last true power forwards in the game and when he is on and seeing red extremely fun to watch. Like Degraa mentioned he would look extremely good on Pashas wing. That being said he needs to get his emotions in check that's for sure.

 

So would 30-40 other players from around the league, and without being a total D-bag at the same time.

Good question. 

 

My biggest criticism of Subban would be the diving, which seems to have improved over the years.  But there also seems to be a culture of it on the Habs.

 

Which Looooooch and his Bruins are notorious for too.




#2548783 Former Wings coach/GM Bryan Murray has stage 4 cancer

Posted by number9 on 13 November 2014 - 11:42 PM

I'm a cancer survivor myself. I was fortunate to catch mine early, but it still took 2 surgeries and 2 years out of my life. What Murray is facing is something I can't imagine. I would've vacated my job by now if I was him. But he's a stronger man than me. Goodluck to him and his family.


#2548759 Gustavsson injured

Ever notice it's always the negative news that brings people back to LGW? 
 
When we're winning or just cruising along this site is pretty bare but us regulars.
 
Then someone gets injured or we go on a losing streak and all of a sudden people are coming out of the wood works.


We should all just cruise over to the water cooler and discuss the wings there *ninjaface*

*Sigh*

 

Well we might as well discuss trading for Edler now too.

What were the rumours about Zach Bogosian? Were the Jets rumoured to be interested in moving him earlier?


Yes they were. They were rumored to be interested in moving him this summer, all of 2013, all of 2012, all of 2011, and probably earlier than that. His name comes up every year despite no credible sources that suggest he's available. Which baffles me because Zach Bogosian is really nothing special. RH yes, but that's about it.


#2548611 Stars trade Sergei Gonchar for Travis Moen from MTL

Posted by number9 on 11 November 2014 - 08:35 PM

Didn't he score in the shootout too? All our problems could be solved with some patty sunshine.

Shoulda never let Bertuzzi and Eaves go. Loved those guys, even loved their faults.

#2548531 Wings call up McCollum, assign Mrazek to Grand Rapids

Posted by number9 on 10 November 2014 - 09:54 PM

 

That has nothing to do with it. McCollum is done with the Wings. He'll never make the team as anything more than a third or fourth backup.  What they're doing is sending Mrazek down to play some games while the Wings have 4 days off.  Precisely because Mrazek is the future.

 

Then why re-sign him? Why not sign a veteran journeyman, like MacDonald, who'd be more reliable in the NHL if injuries happened? You don't think they still have a shred of hope for him? Due to injury he was rushed into the NHL, and was utterly traumatized by that crazy defeat against STL. Last year he rebounded and is so far outplaying Mraz this year. This is a former 1st round pick with all the signs of a late bloomer. I'm not his biggest fan, but I think it's extremely wrong to completely write him off at this point.

 

A lot of speculation. My bet is that this move was made just for this week. Mrazek will get the start down in Grand Rapids against Lake Erie on Wednesday and then they'll probably swap again, having McCollum get the start against Texas and Mrazek backing up Howard against Chicago on Friday... Who knows though...


McCollum was having a better start, but he has lost his last few as well. I highly doubt he is up to be showcased...

 

I highly doubt they have any intention of showcasing him. A trade partner would have every excuse in the book not to return value for him. That's how his career has played out so far. If this is anything other then just to let Mraz play in GR, it's to see if Mccollum really does have potential as an NHL goalie. If Petr is the real deal we may have to trade Howard one of these years. If that's the case who's a potential backup? A rebounding Mccollum could be one.




#2547716 Brendan Shanahan: a letter to my younger self

Posted by number9 on 06 November 2014 - 08:12 PM

I feel touchy feely.
But I'm only getting behind the butt pats if it means something good for the wings.
Or if number9 wants to admit he has homosexual feelings.

And don't judge me..

I only kind if have the same feelings for pav.

 

Great, now our totally hetero, not borderline homosexual, butt patting feels weird.

 

THANKS JIM

 

*pats you on the butt*

Well don't misunderstand me.  I'm the President of his fan club only inasmuch as I want him to do well enough to get traded.  He's not a terrible third pairing defenseman but he gets paid too much and I really like some of those kids. 
 
 
Yes.  He's still got minor league options. 
 
 
If Kindl plays good enough for LGW to call him "solid" he'll be on another team next year.  Catch-22. 


I was mostly thinking about how much everyone used to dislike Ericsson, then he suddenly became a solid blue liner in LGWs eyes once Lids left. Now he's become slightly disliked again.
