#2301080 The new guys thoughts.....

Posted by beachwing on 13 May 2012 - 07:37 PM

Dude your either living in fantasy land or NHL12 lol....The Wings are a dignified, respectable, classy organization. And we got that way by letting our players retire as wings. We dont get nothing for that either...players like nick give us 20+ years of dedicated loyal service. What more do you want man!?!?!? and so will players like datsyuk and zetterberg and so on. They are not common whores that get traded away as soon as they turn 35.... They are Wings. They were born Wings and they will die Wings....Even at their ripe old ages they play a 360 degree game that most "proving themselves up and coming players" will never ever achieve or even dream of. We are one of the most respected and successful organizations in all of sports because we DONT do what you are talking about. Theres a reason why in the players poll the majority of players voted that the organization theyd most like to play for is Detroit...we turn boys into legends...put rings on their fingers...then retire them and give em a job behind the scenes...its been workin since 97 and we aint changin it now....remeber 2001, 2003, and 2006? OH NOOOO BLOW UP THE TEAM!!!!! WELL NEVER WIN AGAIN WITH THESE SHMUCKS!!!! (championship in 2002 and 2008).......if ur really so worried about our Vets (not sure ive ever been worried about veteran wings) and our future, then see: Smith, Nyquist, Tatar, Jurco, Jarnkrok, Sheahan, Mrazek, Andersson, Pulkkinen, Ouellet, Sproul, Tvrdon, Ferraro, Quine, Callahan, Marchenko.....need i say more? our farm is stacked and were almost ready to harvest again....no need to aquire the up and coming leinos and semins of the world. Hockey is different then NHL12 friend.

at this point id like to reiterate a previous posters statement....soooooo glad kenny is running this team

I agree....and had to plus 1 this comment simply for the outstanding use of the word harvest!

I pretty much agree. Like how at the deadline Gillis traded away Vancouver's 3rd line scoring potential for grinders and the team has been misfiring ever since.

It's always been a league of copy cats. WHen Detroit wins the Cup, all of the sudden everyone wants a puck moving Dman and skilled players. Then Boston rag dolls Vancouver on the way to winning the Cup and everyone wants hard hitting hockey players.

Seriously, we are only a few bad bounces away from being up 3-1 instead of down 3-1, but unfortunately, that's hockey.

We all know that if this team goes balls out for 60 minutes, they can beat anybody in the NHL. That's what's bumbed me out.

Cant plus this enough!!!!!

#2292146 The Sun Came Up Today

Posted by beachwing on 18 April 2012 - 10:53 AM

I don't know about the rest of the world but the sun came up over the water today here in Destin Florida.

After that loss and hours of forum venting I wasn't sure it would happen:)

A few bounces our way and who knows what the future holds....regardless, my Redwing flags proudly fly year long and have been doing do since 84!

Ive seen this movie way too many times!

#2289285 Preds not allowed to play ping pong at Joe Louis Arena

Posted by beachwing on 16 April 2012 - 09:04 PM

Yeah but guess what...they don't! They are a little more classy and tend not to use winning something in the past as a CURRENT reference to their team.

The bad thing is the majority of Red Wings fans who throw that stat out there have not been alive for more than the most recent 4, yet live off the others like they were in some guys testicles wearing a Gordie Howe jersey.

I just find it silly to resort (when losing a battle of wits) to bringing up things that happened 20+ years prior to my birth.

You're full of energy tonight huh choppa....did you toss some extra sugar in your sweet tea tonight?

I can recall years going by and NEVER seeing a 5 on 3 in the playoffs and now we seem to have them every game ir at least multiple ones every series!

#2273040 Pavel Datsyuk Playoff Commerical

Posted by beachwing on 22 March 2012 - 07:36 PM

Its the nature of fans to ***** and whine and second guess but after watching that spot, hopefully it drives home the point of how lucky we all are to have him wearing the winged wheel!

#2271416 Helm has MCL sprain, out 4-6 weeks

Posted by beachwing on 18 March 2012 - 05:22 PM

If you look at the replay of his injury very carefully you can see that the knee doesn't bend awkwardly like other ACL/MCL injuries. ACL injuries can spotted just by placing your hand on your good knee and comparing it to the bad one. I don't believe he has a tear in his knee based on the replay. I think he will be back in 2-3 weeks at the max.

I was thinking the same thing....possibly a really severe hyperextension.

#2270549 Call the team out

Posted by beachwing on 15 March 2012 - 11:22 AM

We are sof****** spolied as Wings fans....how many of you were around fo the Dead Wings era?

We are slumping, big deal, we are still contending for a cup just like the previous 20+ years!!!

If your feeling sorry for yourself as a present day wings fan go waste a little time watching vids of the wings before you were born!
