Last pick in the draft. You get what you pay for, I guess.

Yeah right. This is just junk for the media. Not gonna get my hopes up.

Seems like this team has no idea what battle or desperation mean.

Let's go Red Wings!


#2125131 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by Mabuhay Red Wings on 03 March 2011 - 04:46 AM

If I had to put into words the way I feel about the Wings chances this season, I'd say I feel half caution and half excitement with fairly high expectations. Everybody may feel differently from one person to the next. I got to reflecting on how I felt about years past as far as I could remember in my years as a competently enough fan of the game. Feel free to share any memories you guys have from past regular seasons going into the playoffs.

  • 93: More or less, "I'm going to watch one game at a time and just see how this goes."
  • 94: I actually had really high hopes this year because of the 1st seed and everything. So sad.
  • 95: Very much a feeling of, "This seems to be going really, really well... Hmm..." and then the Wings landed in hell. :unsure:
  • 96: Definitely thought they would win it all. Had very little, if any, doubts. And then it happened. :(
  • 97: 20% cautious, 80% not expecting much. And then they won it all. :blush:
  • 98: The same as 97, actually. Even though they were defending champs and the theme of that year was, "Believe." :blush:
  • 99: I really felt they would three-peat. The 99 post season definitely pissed me off more than any other run for any of my sports teams. I got greedy big time. :ranting:
  • 00: Had a decent level of excitement but not much. Nothing exceptional. God I hate Colorado.
  • 01: A little less excitement than what I had for '00. Ugh... Late night first round against the Kings definitely ruined some grades.
  • 02: Haha. I actually felt like, "They betterf****** win it all, dammit... Or else... (shakes fist)." So very sad after Game 5 against the Avs. But it all ended very well. :D
  • 03: Wasn't excited at all for this playoff run. I remember how they didn't get the 1st seed and thinking something just didn't seem right. I was more excited about the birth of the Euro Twins. From what I remember, Fedorov was on fire that year and then he ran into Steve Rucchin. :unsure:
  • 04: I actually felt really good about this year. I really liked the team from that year on paper. But it wasn't to be. :(
  • 05: Lockout. :zzz:
  • 06: I was fairly excited but also a tad cautious because I started to see how the Wings would get one of the highers seeds and then lose.
  • 07: Cautious with low expectations. I was very impressed after this playoff run. The foundation of the team was starting to really emerge.
  • 08: A very slow building feeling of shocking amazement as they year went on. "Wow... They could really do this and I can't think of a better team in the league," is how I felt. :thumbup:
  • 09: Definitely believed they would win it all. :(
  • 10: Very much a "One game at a time, let's see where this goes" kind of feeling.

Man, congratulations to Franzen and all, but is it our team that seems to attract the weirdos?

Zetterberg had a wedding where everyone had to wear white and black striped leotards, Franzen names his kid this, and Kronwall wears Harry Potter glasses.


Swedes. :ph34r:


#2124329 I've decided-Datsyuk for Captain

Posted by Mabuhay Red Wings on 01 March 2011 - 06:24 PM

Zetterberg singlehandedly handed the most hated player of LGW his own ass.

There should be no question who should get it here.


Psh. I donít think he did anything out of the ordinary besides what any other guy would do on a 5-on-3.

:ph34r:

But he'll grow on ya.


Wow. You might want to get a CT scan. And soon.


#2123194 Petr Mrazek

Posted by Mabuhay Red Wings on 27 February 2011 - 08:43 PM

Screw this bulls*** size crap. Look who's vying for the Vezina (Tim Thomas) not some behemoth.

I sat almost right behind this kid on Feb 26 and he's the real deal. The shots were 48 to 20 against my beloved Spirit yet the 67's beat them 4-2 with the 3rd being an EN. Most of the play was in the Ottowa zone. He's even a little feisty jabbing at one of the Spirit players. I tell if it wasn't for Petr the Spirit would have murdered them. This goalie is why Ottawa is even competitive this year.


Thanks for the update, Sarah Palin!


#2121937 Avery Sucks.

Posted by Mabuhay Red Wings on 25 February 2011 - 02:56 AM

Shoreline's link is kind of a good one.

"The only thing I would say is obviously we had him as a young player at that time and our concern was his lack of respect for the game, the people in the game and, obviously, he left us," Holland said. "He has worked his way through a few organizations now and it's apparent that he hasn't matured."

"As someone who managed a team to a Stanley Cup, I have no place for him on my hockey club," Feaster told NHL.com. "The only way it works is if we're selfless as a group. Everything he's about is Sean Avery. It's the epitome of selfishness. It has nothing to do with the team perspective at all. I don't know how you win with a guy like Sean Avery."

Crymson going off on a "what is the deal with Wings fans?" tirade? Never.
