#2306418 Please Mr. I...

I know they probably cannot do it but Caesars Palace would be fitting.

Gordie Howe Pavillion

Red Wings Center

Motor City Arena

JLA Memorial Auditorium

Olympia Colosseum

The Horn and absolutely without a doubt, the boards better make it over. I laugh everytime a national broadcaster or rival teams announcer comments about the "lively boards". They are the most important thing about the JLA in my opinion.


#2306397 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 10 June 2012 - 05:16 PM

You look at his performance in 2010-11 and compare it to 2011-12 when he made it verbally known that he wanted to leave.

The performance was night and day. He made Ericcson look like Nicky in comparison. He skated away from the puck, made little effort to maintain puck possesion and although everyone looked crappola in the Playoffs this year, he was one of the worst out there.

I dont understand the love fest for him when it was obvious he had zero intention of playing hard last season.

stats are games played, goals, assists, points, PIM, +/-

2010-11 Detroit Red Wings NHL 67 3 17 20 40 4




2011-12 Detroit Red Wings NHL 81 6 15 21 29 16


He played less the year prior and had almost the same numbers, I dont look at plus minus because that is a team stat. He wasnt helping as much and definitely wasnt manning up on guys like he did in the previous year.

Glad to see him gone. Last year he stunk up the whole blue line most likely to be traded. He got his wish going to the fkn Guppies, dont let the door hit you on the way out Brad.


#2304498 Red Wings Next Captain

Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 01 June 2012 - 02:01 AM

+96 for Homer w/ the C.

Hes the last of the old guard although I expect a slightly less intelligible presser than Nicks in the next few days.

Just think, it could be a new precedent for Wings Captains. We can start with Homer for a year, then on to Pavs after that.

Captains that no one can understand!!!

...Whodda Thunk?? ;)

Seriously though its sad to see Nick go and I hope that a Wings lifer is picked. Z or Kronner are looking like the two front runners and personally, Id rather see Kron as Captain.

I see Kron as a guy that goes out every shift and makes a difference. Z is a superstar but I just dont see his impact on the ice as important as the two Nicks were and now one Nick every night and every shift..

So if Homer doesnt get it or retires I hope to see Kron with the C next season.

BUBYE BLUES!!!!!

Best Coach in the league and you suck it up to the Kings and IMO best team of the Playoffs.

Glad the Mullets in Missiery dont get to cheer on a team that plays a sport they dont even understand.

No its not first down if you get hit at the blue line...

LATER!!!!!!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

I guess the "GET THE RED OUT" campaign had nothing to do with Detroit and everything to do with getting out of the negative...

I also hope that the liberals out there that think that taking money from the rich and "spreading the wealth" is a good thing, think of that in the hockey sense. All it does is penalize the successful to reward the less than .... Why should the Red Wings support the Preds, Stars, Coyotes, Columbus ect.

All it does is make a successful organization worse by subsidizing a rival team. Its no different than a phone company having to provide infrastructure to competitors at a loss (see SBC having to rent physical phone lines to Sprint and many others at an operating loss in order to make them competitive).

In the end it doesnt make for better hockey. It makes for closer hockey.

The bad thing is that the closer hockey is all mediocre because the best that is available in this type of system is spread out to 30 teams,

Parity looks to make the league average and they are doing a wonderful job at it.

Anyone that thinks Brad Stuart (I wont grace him with a nickname) deserves anything more than a D is blind or high on drugs.

I may sound like a tin-foiler but I seriously think he was trying to throw games. I also expect a negative 5 or more.

He played like Ericcson did last year only we know how he usually plays. We also know that hes in the pocket of SJ right now and wouldnt surprise me if a juicier contract would be offered if we lost here and there. He skated away from pucks, let forwards skate past him without challenging them and flat out played at 50%.

Unless he has a broken foo,t he was sandbagging and/or throwing games.

STUART- J-

#2295775 So Who Do You Cheer For Now?

Posted by Cali-Wing-Nut on 22 April 2012 - 01:12 PM

Its not who you root FOR, Its who do you root AGAINST. We should only root for the Wings.

You should root against-

-Canadian teams

-Chicago

-Pitt

-SJ (but they are thankfully gone from the competition)

-Preds
