#2563869 "Subtle Interference"

Posted by TheXym on 17 January 2015 - 08:13 AM

A lot of it stems, imho, from other announcers, (especially Olczyk) who are just jealous of the sustained success of the Wings for over two decades. For years, the Blackhawks were, for all purposes, irrelevant to post season discussions. They were able to draft Toews and Kane so high because they, as a team, sucked so hard for several seasons. Olczyk coached the Pens briefly, and had a record that only Mike Milbury could love (31-64-8-10). I wonder how many of those losses were due to "suttal intahfurrants"

Holy crap! Centcougar! I could not remember that guys name! I remember when he was here pretending to be a Wings fan talking about how we may or may not land the Olsen Twins that year! :lol: I also remember outing him when I stumbled across him on a Wild Forum using the same name! That was great times! Even though he was right about the Wild getting them, but it was awesome to out him on our forum! Dude, just be a Wild fan, we don't care! :lol:

Seriously. That was awesome when you outed him. The irony was he'd have been welcome as a Wild fan if he wanted to actually talk hockey. Some serious insecurity there.

I personally like when other team's fans come by to talk hockey and not be jerks. A certain Predators fan is pretty awesome about that, and I like the"outsider's" perspective. Trolls, on the other hand, can GTFO. ;)

I haven't see cprice around these parts for a LONG time! He was our resident Blues fan...maybe he got tired of getting beat all the time?


Maybe he and centcougar are hanging out somewhere. Though cprice wasn't nearly the troll centcougar was.


#2563701 Could the Wings be better off trading Pav & Hank for draft picks?

After the OT goal tonight, I think the leadership and excellence examples were on display by Pavel in a very, very big way.

Very, very civilized of Pavel to be so very, very clutch with an OT game winning goal. Great example of leadership and excellence to overcome the very, very bad start to the game.

Disappointing to go to OT with the gratuitous lack of officiating excellence. DeKeyser was interfered with to help create the scoring chance. Lots of other shenanigans by the Blues let go. The no goal and posts hurt.

I hope they come out with a serious mad-on for OT and end it quick.

It was a fair call, he was in the crease, but I can't help but think if the teams were reversed, it would have counted based on the historical evidence.

Time to blow this open, Let's Go Wings!

Could it be the replica Zetterbeard Sheahan is growing?

Didn't realize Sheahan lost his glove until that replay. Who said Tinky Winky had no offense? He played a defensive system at ND and is showing he was well worth a first round pick.

Now some good pressure. Make like Twisted Sister and stay hungry. Get one past Elliott and the floodgates shall open for the feeding frenzy to begin. Let's Go Wings!

Don't just kill it, get the shorty.

I'm shocked Ott didn't take the cheap shot, he's got a rep for being a douchenozzle.

Great job by Helm to draw the penalty. Where's Cockholio?

I'm late to the thread, but PavelValerievichDatsyuk and krsmith hit it right on the head. I'm not going to write a pile-on novel, as they summed it up well imho. Yes, it's a discussion board for the exchange of ideas, but there is so much to be positive about if you look with any objectivity at what's in the pipeline. It's the best it's been since I started watching the Wings in 1983.

Good win in regulation. Civilized, even.
