#2106391 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by Matt on 27 January 2011 - 06:54 PM

I assure you Nabby would be taking that starting job from Howard... Howard simply is NOT cutting it this year. Last night was the 2nd time in a long while that he allowed fewer than 3 goals, and the goal he did let in was absolutely terrible. We need Ozzie to come back strong in March because IMO if he can get goin in time he will be starting

Terrible because there's not a soul on the roster right now that can (or is willing) to clear out the front of the net? That's been systemic of the Red Wings' play of late and that certainly isn't Howard's fault. He hasn't been as electrifying as he was down the stretch last year, but the Red Wings' defense around the net has been abysmal so far this season.


#2105277 Ducks Sued for Anti-Semitism by Former Draft Pick

I think it's sad that most of you say this kid needs to 'grow balls'. What if this was Iginla saying that he had to endure the 'n' word by his coaches, or one of our many european players being called 'euro trash'. I understand foul language is used in sports by coaches all the time, but what he is claiming is racism. There should be absolutely no tolerance for race, ethnicity, sex, beliefs etc. to be used as weapons. It's one thing for a coach to tell you to get your head out of your you know what, but to disparage an entire group of people is horrific and shouldnt be excused or tolerated.

This sets a bad example for our sport, for the coaches that work hard to inspire and create amazing players. There is no reason any person should be subjected to what this man is claiming he went through. Jokes, stereotyping, racism isn't tolerated in many workplaces why should hockey or sports in general be exempt of that?

^ This. It has no place in a workplace environment, especially with people that are part of management. Whether or not it was said to him directly or just "while he was in the room" doesn't matter. It has nothing to do with "growing a sack" or "that's hockey" or some other nonsense -- there's appropriate behavior and there's not. This isn't.

This isn't a bar conversation amongst friends -- this is where you work and try to earn your living and you shouldn't be subjected to ridicule because of your race, religion or sexual orientation. It doesn't appear that he was getting litigation-happy at first glance either, just that little to nothing was done (outside "internal matter" suspensions) and that it needed to be made a larger issue so the problem gets solved, not just brushed under a rug and forgotten.

I don't think it's "sad" that some people honestly think he needs to just "grow some balls" as the solution -- I think it's downright pathetic.

I'd hate to be Nabby thinking that he's going to Detroit and then get claimed by the Islanders.

First Osgood, now this! :lol:

Proud to say I tossed my first hat on the Joe Louis Arena ice tonight. Had some great seats and a brand new hat (tonight was the first time I've had a chance to wear it) -- it went to a worthy cause!

Thanks Nick!

#2058148 Florida marketing to Montreal Canadiens fans?

Posted by Matt on 05 November 2010 - 06:47 PM

We had a large contingent of Wings fans from here that got a group rate to see the Wings in Florida two years ago. I've been in touch with the Panthers' ticket office this season and we'll be getting another discount for the game in February this season. :) I'll be posting something up soon.

Is that Vladi in the background?

It is. An underlying theme with these and the site's look is current and past Wings. So, in future versions, expect to see Yzerman, Sawchuk, Howe, Lindsay, Abel, et al in addition to current Wings. They'll always be 1+1 (so, as an example, Yzerman will highly likely be present on a Zetterberg one, Howard with Sawchuk, etc.).

Time for a new season, time for the new edition of LetsGoWings.com's schedule desktop wallpapers!

I'm still eye deep in development on the new LGW web site (getting close now!), but I wanted to make sure these weren't held up. Keep in mind that the new site will have an all-new file download system and once it's live the links to the different resolution wallpapers will be broken on the forums until I can fix it. Most, if not all, of you will have it already downloaded by then, anyway. ;)

This month's featured player is Nicklas Lidstrom. I've also added additional screen resolutions this season, and I'm planning on also offering more once the main site is back up (think: HDTV formats, iPad, etc.).

Enjoy!
