#2466487 12/19 GDT: Flames 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by kipwinger on 20 December 2013 - 10:17 AM

So glad the Wings won.  Alfie was buzzing all night so it's not surprising he got the winner. 


When Kronner was applauding the fans after the game, I wish there was a way he could've directed at only the upper bowl.  The number of empty seats in the lower bowl is beyond ridiculous. 


It's sh*tty, there's no doubt about it.  But compared to Lions or Tigers fans, Wings fans have always been a bit fickle.  It doesn't surprise me that people aren't showing up the way we've been playing.  I mean hell, look at how many on our fan forum have sworn on and off them the last few weeks.  Now imagine the feeling of the casual suburban potential ticket buyer.  Everybody around here expects them to win, and if they don't they're chopped liver.  Sad but true.  The Wings aren't the Lions, they actually have to do something positive to get fan support.

If Ryane Clowe is worth 4.75 million per year, then Alex Steen is worth 100 Bazillion per year.  Just sayin'.

If Jordin Tootoo were playing Nyquist would never have pulled his groin.  Scientific fact!

How do you feel about McGrattan?  


He had really neat hair when Colton Orr beat the living s*** out of him.

#2465352 Wings call up Sheahan

Yes you're right, just frustrated with these injuries and it's such a Franzen thing to. Guess we'll see on 24/7


It's a "Franzen thing" to sit out games when you're completely healthy, and your team is struggling, and you're playing well, and you've just been made an assistant captain while Zetterberg is out?  Yeah, he does that all the time.

#2465349 Why the Red Wings get injured

Posted by kipwinger on 16 December 2013 - 07:29 PM

Because they have no legitimate enforcer. Simply said. Yes, the red wings have very skilled players who have speed. But when teams like Ottawa and Boston are out there out hitting your players 2:1 or 3:1 ratio night after night, (and I don't mean small checks, I mean big massive hits), you cant expect them to last long. Perhaps Ken Holland needs to FINALLY invest in some muscle? I cant think of any out there obviously, and Tootoo wasn't much of a success unfortunately.. but it makes you think. How much longer do the players need to get pushed around till someone gets a head or back injury. O wait.. Zetterberg just had a herniated disk....... Datsyuk got concussion symptoms, oh and so did Franzen... There's a reason the Detroit Red Wings are injury prone folks. It's cuz other teams run around and hit em. If there were enforcers, teams would think twice before laying the hits on star players.


That's my 2 cents on the situation. Please share!


You mean like how Orpik thought twice about hitting skilled winger Loui Eriksson because of all the big, bad, enforcers that Boston has?  Or perhaps how James Neal didn't even consider kneeing Marchand in the head during the same game for the same reason?  And certainly nobody would consider taking liberties with Phil Kessel with Orr and McLaren on the ice for Toronto. 


I completely agree with everything you just said.

I want more Bertuzzi and some really hard hitting questions like "How much can you bench press?"  or "How awesome are your tattoos?"


But seriously, spotlight Hank's injury, Pavel's awesomeness, Alfie's quest, and Bert's redemption.  Hockey gold right there boys.

Wow, I had no idea how many trained medical professionals there were on LGW.  I should have known after a good portion of the forum concluded that Orpik "shouldn't" have been injured by Thornton, but it's pretty clear now that you've all chimed in on Franzen's injury.  Keep up the good work guys and gals, this thread wouldn't be the same without you pulling comments out of nowhere to validate your preconceived bias against Franzen.

You're absolutely right it is a total mind/body experience like doing yoga while petting puppies and drinking the finest scotch and smelling something that smells awesome all while having a tantric orgasm


what were we talking about?


So anyway, what's your opinion on something hockey related?  Literally, ANYTHING hockey related.

Dear Mike Babcock,


You already make us suffer through having Dan Cleary on the team.  Why do you make us suffer through having him on the powerplay too?  If it's a joke, your sense of humor is truly dark.


Sincerely and Respectfully,

Dear Red Wings,


Ben Bishop is f*cking huge.  Please stop shooting the puck directly at him, and perhaps try to get him moving side to side a bit.  If it doesn't work, no harm done.  What you're currently doing doesn't work either.

Yeah, Jurco's a little outclassed against the big boys.  Move Tatar up and put Jurco on the third.  See what he can do against lesser competition.

I'm watching it right now.  It would be really good if it weren't for all that crap about the Maple Leafs.

Boring.  Give me Jurco or give me death!

#2464078 Kindl

Posted by kipwinger on 13 December 2013 - 03:01 PM

Kulikov is no stop gap - he is a young Dman who would be playing on this team for 10 years. It would be more than Kindl to get him too. 


Agreed, it would definitely take more than Kindl to get him.  And I meant he'd be a stop gap in the sense that you have quality young offensive d-men coming and likely given Kulikov's age he won't get a super long term deal.  3 maybe 4 years max.

#2464059 Kindl

Posted by kipwinger on 13 December 2013 - 01:38 PM

Kindl reeeeeeks! Can't wait for dekeyser to come back.


Dekeyser coming back would likely have no effect on Kindl, as his return would push Lashoff down the ladder.
