Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 July 2014 - 04:35 PM

Any HFBoards users out there, please support Flashy here and get your vote in. He puts in countless hours into GDTs not only there, but here on LGW also. This is an opportunity for us to give back to someone who dedicates a lot of time and effort for free just for our entertainment.


Let's bring him to the final and get him the recognition he deserves.

#2530200 Next Seasons Needs/Team Future

Posted by Euro_Twins on 05 July 2014 - 11:48 PM

I honestly think they are trying to build and maintain a culture here where players feel safe and appreciated.  Where if they have go through a slump, they won't fear being traded or instantly replaced.
Obviously they go to extremes at times.(Cleary) But sometimes the message sent can have a more profound impact down the road than the immediate repercussions.
I'm sure many believe that fear can motivate a player but I don't think that's a stable way of doing business.  I just don't see us trading roster players unless there's an issue with attitude or commitment or just too many bodies.
We definitely struck out this year in free agency.  No looking past that.  That's on management.  Injuries...that's a tough thing to place blame on.

I blame it on trainers and conditioning coaches

I forget who that drunk guy was but in three words, he summed up Ken Hollands efforts as a GM since Scotty left...and it should be etched on his headstone....ready? All together now!



that's the  JUCK f****** POTT!

#2526974 Wings to have face to face with Matt Niskanen

Posted by Jasper84 on 29 June 2014 - 03:30 PM

I mostly lurk in the offseason, but I do enjoy hearing what you have to share. Don't let others get you down. BoS said it well. I understand you can't divulge your source, so I'm not going to take a shot at you and instead be grateful to hear it during a slow summer.

You are nowhere near the same camp as Eklund or hockeyinsiderr in terms of throwing mass quantities of BS, so I don't get the hostility from some. You have more than proved your worth as a contributor to this board.


I agree with this. I happen to like hearing what he has to say, and I don't expect him to reveal his source.  True or not, it makes me come read the forums in the off season because it makes me hopeful that we're picking someone up, so I appreciate that he posts it on here. I find it funny though that there are so many people on here that get butt hurt over it. For crying out loud people, you don't like it? don't trust it? then just skip over the post, he's not hurting anyone. 

#2525449 Hartnell to Columbus for Umberger + 4th in 2015

Most lgw members morning routine.

Wake up, have coffee
Complain about franzen (honourable mention of hossa)
Take a shower
Complain about babs/Holland/being too soft
Complain about franzen
Complain more about franzen
Complain even more about franzen....

This is the song that never ends...

#2524884 Todd Bertuzzi will not be re-signed

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 20 June 2014 - 02:43 PM


Why? I mean I have nothing against Bert, but no sympathy really. He nearly killed Steve Moore after all. Really he should have been banned for life. 


No he didn't.  The guys that jumped on top did but I'm not going to debate it.  If any one should be banned it's Matt Cooke but that's not going to happen.

#2523857 2014 SCF : (2) The Big Apple vs. (3) Hollywood

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 14 June 2014 - 02:07 PM

Guys, I tried.

I just can't manage to give two rabbit farts when it's not us lifting the cup.

Best part of these playoffs for me was that neither the Pens or the Hawks got to the big show, so there's that...


If the Wings go down, then this is all that matters to me :lol: f*** those bangwagons and their whiny ass captains.

New York was lucky to get past Montreal.




It doesn't matter if it's East or West, he's a Stanley Cup Final loser on either coast.

#2523932 Wings sign Tomas Nosek to 2 year entry level deal

Posted by paulwoodsfan on 15 June 2014 - 11:51 AM

If there was a "local boy" available right now who was a 21-year-old free agent and as good as Nosek apparently is, then the Wings could be criticized. Clearly, however, there isn't any such player available.

I don't know if I want Lundquist to hoist the Cup or give it to LA just for taking out the Hawks.  Honestly, I'm good either way.

Having weak D on their heels tires you out. By the 3rd period you finally get your dues and get scored on.

Posted by LeftWinger on 13 May 2014 - 01:59 PM

No thank you. Besides, in the NHL there is something called interdivisional rape. Then there is Detroit rape. Then there are fair trades. They ask for the moon from a divisional rival, they ask for God's only son from Detroit, they accept 1980's Lake Erie from everyone else...
