#2382507 Helm might be out for season

Posted by Ally on 09 April 2013 - 02:29 PM

Proving once again that even when I'm expecting bad news, it doesn't suck any less when it becomes official.

#2382262 Going forward with what we have

Posted by Ally on 08 April 2013 - 02:36 PM

I feel like there are 15 of these threads with a point by point explanation of what people want with each individual player. Can't they somehow be combined in a "what I would do if I were Holland" thread?
As far as this particular one goes, I don't hate every idea but any plan that suggests trading Datsyuk is thumbs down for me. Yes, I WOULD rather lose him for nothing. I want that man to be a career Wing.

#2379777 Official NHL Trade Deadline thread

Posted by Ally on 03 April 2013 - 04:48 PM

I'm okay with this. There was nobody I was dying to have.
People really need to remember that the "price" that Holland refers to isn't just about money. It's also about what players we'd have to give up. I'd rather him hoard prospects now than give them away for players that are only marginal improvements to our roster.
Holland makes no moves and everyone loses it but if he gave the teams what they asked from us I promise half of this board would be flipping out over what we gave up.

#2375755 Dreger: Wings 'very interested' in Bouwmeester *merged*

The only thing more annoying than hearing Holland say "we like our team" is seeing that quote posted in every single thread.

#2374887 Iginla Traded to Pittsburgh

Posted by Ally on 28 March 2013 - 01:20 AM

All I want in life is for the Penguins (and Vancouver while I'm making wishes) to lose in the first round and then for Detroit to just sweep everyone and meet Boston (my favorite eastern team and fave team to play) to meet in the finals and Detroit to win. Am I asking too much?
Seriously though, I really hope the Penguins get swept in the first despite all the moves they've made.

#2374406 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Posted by Ally on 26 March 2013 - 01:49 PM

It's kind of at the point where everybody wants him and now I mostly want him just to say we won.
Sort of an "I don't know if I want him but I don't want anybody else to have him" ...my feelings towards this signing are starting to sound less hockey fan and more crazy ex-girlfriend.

Perry hurt. Meh

#2370569 Brunner downgraded to the third line!?

By page 3 all threads lead to Franzen.

#2369160 Babcock: Is he the right guy going forward?

Posted by Ally on 14 March 2013 - 09:18 PM

I'm not naive enough to think that I know better than Babs. The man can coach...if I don't agree with his decisions it is far more likely that I'M wrong...not the coach sitting in the triple gold club.

#2367394 3/10 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by Ally on 10 March 2013 - 04:49 PM

Games like this make me miss Helm more. And even Draper. I'd just like to see 60 minutes of effort but I'll settle for the next 40 minutes..

#2367382 3/10 GDT : Blue Jackets 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by Ally on 10 March 2013 - 04:41 PM

That was really dirty tootoo.... the league may have something to say about that.

That really didn't look that dirty to me.

Sooo...who thinks Tootoo is gonna fight Boll?

#2365966 Should Visors Be Mandatory In The NHL

Posted by Ally on 07 March 2013 - 03:36 AM

I'd like to see the visor be grandfathered in but IMO things like Kevlar socks should just become mandatory for everyone. I see no reason not to considering they don't affect any part of a player's play (can't even argue vision like you could for visors). In a league that's always going on about player safety it seems ridiculous not to implement tiny changes like this that protect elite guys from crazy bad injuries.

#2364912 Going to the wings game tomorrow.

Posted by Ally on 04 March 2013 - 11:53 PM

You're very lucky. It would cost me about $1500 to fly to Detroit to go see the Wings at the Joe :(
I'm making the 4 hour drive to Calgary next week to see them though so at least there's that...

#2364567 if we can find a couple of power forwards.....

Posted by Ally on 03 March 2013 - 09:36 PM

I don't understand the cleary+abs situation either but seriously, ease up on the panic buttons.
Babcock is not an idiot and if he's doing something that we don't understand I'm gonna go ahead and say that there's probably a good motive. Wasn't long ago that everyone was bagging on Holland and Babs for the defense that you're all now praising.
