#2526458 NHL Draft 2014: First Round

Posted by PaZel on 27 June 2014 - 09:33 PM

Wow, they did pick Larkin. Thats pretty cool, this kid is about as Michigan as any of you guys could want.


He's from freaking Waterford, played for the Belle Tire club, then for USNTDP in Ann Arbor, and now he's suiting up for U of M.


Surely some of you guys know this kid? 

I'm a residential advisor in one of the nicer dorms at UofM. I think it would be pretty awesome if Larkin was one of my residents! Haha

#2515822 The Franzen Hate.

Posted by PaZel on 25 April 2014 - 02:39 PM

You do realize we probably wouldn't have made the playoffs if it weren't for his ridiculous surge in the latter part of the season, right?


And if it's only the playoffs that matter, why did the Tigers ever get rid of Jhonny Peralta or Delmon Young? They weren't great during the season, but always showed up in the playoffs. People need to make up their minds.


Now, flame me.


I'm a little confused by his "ridiculous surge in the latter part of the season".

Franzen had 1 goal and 7 points in the last 18 games of the regular season  :eh:

Are you confusing Franzen with Nyquist?


Granted, Franzen had 12 points in the 6 games prior to that slump. Which of course makes his stat-line look better when looking at the last 24 regular season games - 19 points in 24 games. However, that deceiving state-line doesn't change the fact that he wasn't producing for the last 18 games of the regular season.


So I would agree that the wings wouldn't have made the playoffs if it weren't for Franzen's "ridiculous surge for six games with about a quarter of the season left to play". But, I would also agree that if Franzen actually would've showed up for the last 18 games of the season we would have easily made the playoffs and probably would be playing the Pens rather than the Bruins.


He absolutely does not deserve praise for helping us make the playoffs. There's a reason the credit is going to all of the "kids" on the team.

#2515622 ECQF - Game 4 - Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (F/OT)

Posted by PaZel on 24 April 2014 - 10:36 PM

That overtime was so pathetic, the wings looked so tired. There were multiple shifts the Bruins had that I felt were definitely going to lead to a goal. So despite the lucky bounce, we had that had one coming. 


On another note, am I the only one who thought Franzen played alright tonight? I'm usually pissed off by his lack of effort, but I definitely was surprised by how much jump he had (compared to normal). 


I also thought Quincey and Smith played pretty solid.


I was disappointed with Kindl (per usual) but also thought Dekeyser had a pretty poor game tonight too.

Gordon Bombay no questions asked. He just has a way at helping players maximize their potential...

What's interesting is that, if true, "talks went south fast." I wonder what Holland was asking for?


Them to take Sammy as well...

Posted by PaZel on 23 August 2012 - 02:29 AM

Not sure if this was posted before, but with NHL 13 featuring GM Connected we should set up a LGW Online Dynasty.....haha that is if 29 other users are okay without being the Wings.

No Suter =( But would Garrison be a good addition? Would he sign for that little?

So I stumbled upon this on Yahoo this morning and couldn't resist sharing it with the LGW community. Just too funny. Have there ever been any other incidents like this?

#2202967 Breakout rookies for the 2011-2012 season

Posted by PaZel on 09 August 2011 - 12:15 AM

Easy guys, give some constructive criticism! Although I do not agree with some of the placement, predictions, or even the reason some players are on the list (JVR) it's still a solid list filled with good research. Nice work putting together a good list of some of the younger talent in the NHL! :thumbup:

#2201234 Personal Dilemma

Posted by PaZel on 27 July 2011 - 10:46 AM

In the Fall I'll be heading to college and am extremely nervous about missing all the Red Wings action live! Of course, I can still keep track of how they're doing, and get in game feedback through different sports applications that give you up to the minute feedback (or at least close to it) but I'm curious if there are any recommended or strong websites that broadcast the Red Wings games live all season long! If necessary i'll head to restaurants around the area to watch the game, but I can only do that so often due to the fact that I, like every other college student, will be piss broke. I really don't know what I would do if I'm forced to take a leave of absence from watching my team, any suggestions are welcomed!
