#2498516 3/20 GDT - Penguins 4 at Red Wings 5 (OT)

Posted by kipwinger on 20 March 2014 - 11:23 PM

Mods remove my posts, and I still bask in my nuclear sunshine.  We're the Detroit Red Wings, maybe you've heard, winning big games is what we do!  Welcome opposing fans, you're truly welcome, but please believe we're not rolling over on some trash talk.

 

I just moved to Washington D.C. for work, and you wouldn't believe how Caps fan get punked by Pens, Bruins, and Flyers fans around here.  I was in a Caps bar about two weeks ago and they lost to the Flyers.  Bunch of Flyers fan walked up in the place and took it over. 

 

Not happening with Wings fans.  Not happening in Detroit.  Reppin' it till the death of it!

flightless birds?

im smiling at 94 points...

 

If you think that's funny you're probably downright beside yourself when you think about how your team just dropped three straight to mediocre teams.  Bodes really well for your chances of getting past Boston, Tampa, Montreal, or Philly...

 

Oh s***, I'm sorry, I didn't mean to say Philly this close to a Pens' fan's bedtime.  I don't want to give you nightmares.  Have a good sleep, you'll probably drift away like a baby knowing your team absolutely murders bottom feeders like Detroit...oh wait.  Nighty night.

I'm sorry, what's going on?  Did I miss a memo that said you had to debate "penalty calls" with a fan of the opposing team who just lost to our AHL team?  Scoreboard my man!

Don't worry everyone, Franzen's about to go off in the third.  Calling it.  Season changing period right here, and Franzen's going to be the catalyst.

Jesusf****** Christ.  Who's fault is it when you blow like 2,000 two goal leads with various different lineups?  Does even a little of that come back on the coach?

Does he have to have more than one goal to officially be "loose", or how does that work?  I need an official ruling.

Hahahaha it is funny, because it was our hate for each others team what we had in common once we met.

 

Nothing brings folks together more than unyielding hatred.  You're a lucky man.

I guess I should ditch my future wife then?

 

If the shoe fits.  Sorry dude, I'm sure you love her and everything, but we've all got to make sacrifices in a season this trying.

Every time I look at our lineup on paper I want to puke.  It's easy enough to ignore it during the game because you don't see all the names in the same place at the same time, but god do I hate seeing it listed. 

 

Here's hoping they can ride Nyquist and "subtly interfere" their way to a victory tonight!


Making the pilgrimage to this one from Central Ohio with my misguided pens fan wife. Per her request we wiill be rocking the customized jerseys with our last names on them (least I have the winged wheel on my chest) behind the goal in Section 115. Here is hoping that the boys in Red deal death and destruction to the flightless birds, that I see the red light come on in front of me in periods 1 and 3 (while it appears broken in period 2) and I have a happy drive home as my wife sleeps off a stinging loss. 

 

LGW 

 

Why did you marry a Pens fan again?  That should be a dealbreaker 10 times out of 10.




#2497398 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by kipwinger on 20 March 2014 - 07:40 AM

Weber and Rinne are the faces of the team.

 

Not that it matters much, but I don't think he's wrong in saying that Legwand was the face of their team.  He was with them for 15 years, leads their team in games played, goals, assists, points, and who was an alternate captain.  Certainly more so than Rhinne, and probably on par with Weber.  I sort of see it as being like Dats and Z, neither really being "the face" over the other.  But that's just my opinion on the matter.




#2497319 Is the Real Brendan Smith Finally Starting the Show Up?

Posted by kipwinger on 19 March 2014 - 03:29 PM

Last time he was with kronwall he did great so I expect the same to happen. It truly is amazing what happens when he isn't paired with Quincey, kindle or lashoff.

 

Their games all improve as well.  It's nuts!

@asktheduffer: #Leafs Carlyle on #redwings: "I thought interference was supposed to be called in the NHL. We felt there was a lot of interference."

@asktheduffer: #leafs Carlyle on #redwings: "When you go in to forecheck, they step in front of people, holding people up."

@asktheduffer: #leafs Carlyle on #redwings: "Youve got give them credit. They disguised it. They did a better job than we did."

*plays air guitar*

 

Somewhere Eddie Olczyk is nodding his head approvingly. 

 

Which should be a meme for whenever the Wings do something poorly




#2497259 I am not a fan of the Sharks, but I applaud this.

Posted by kipwinger on 19 March 2014 - 11:05 AM

Signed him to a one-day contract?  Did he get league minimum?

 

League minimum pro-rated down to a single day would be about 2,000 bucks.  Which should just about cover the increases to his insurance premium when you consider he's adding a career in professional hockey to a pre-existing heart condition. 




#2497226 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by kipwinger on 19 March 2014 - 08:59 AM

I'll say this, I did not realize how fast Nyquist was until last night.  I knew he was quick, but not fast like that.  It was appropriate that we played the Leafs last night because Nyquist looked A LOT like Phil Kessel in terms of his explosive first strides and quick wrister.  Kid is fast.
