#2323340 Your Favorite Hits

Posted by Ally on 01 August 2012 - 03:41 AM

Pav's helmetless hit on Chara.

also December 21,2011 Kronwall leveling Kesler, love to see a Canuck get kronwalled and love to see Kesler take a penalty afterwards.

This countdown is amazing, as are some of the comments from opposing fans...

"Why the f*ck do forwards keep their heads down when hes on the ice?!?! If I was playing against his line, fk scoring, my priority is to come out of that shift with my legs and arms."

#2319493 Reminder: Personal attacks, trolling will not be tolerated

I miss the neg button. Seemed like a more efficient way to tell someone their opinion sucked rather than the threads being taken over by the personal attack posts.

#2307780 Exit interview with legendary Red Wing Nicklas Lidstrom

Posted by Ally on 18 June 2012 - 01:56 AM

I'm going to miss Lids so much. So many players (and people in general) could learn a thing or two from the way he speaks. When you're being interviewed about how great you are and you can acknowledge your talent without sounding arrogant, that's pretty great.

#2305338 Would you make this trade?

Helm. A 25 year old 6-0/180 LH shooting checking C. yes he is a good penalty killer. Might be the fastest man in the NHL. He also has his own injury issues. No not long term ones, but misses 10-15 games per year, including this years playoffs, with nagging injuries due to his lack of size.

Did I miss something? MAYBE you can blame the knee injury on size but I'm almost positive that a skate to the arm isn't size related.

whoops, forgot to agree with you for a second there. my bad

#2303388 Excellent 'Parise and Suter to Detroit' article

Posted by Ally on 26 May 2012 - 05:09 PM

Improve? Yes. But you can't pin the stability of an organizations future on two FA's who may or may not sign

I'm not talking about pinning the whole organization on two guys. I'm just saying that it makes no sense to say that our future is any less certain than any other team and that it would have an effect on those guys wanting to be in Detroit.

#2303383 Hasek wants to play in the NHL again

Posted by Ally on 26 May 2012 - 04:38 PM

This is one of those things where I know it would be a bad idea but I just like him so much.
I'd just like to see a Canuck get flipped like Gaborik.

#2302919 The truth of our decline.

"If it is so painstaking then why do you continue I click the links and post in the threads?"

Because the LGW forum at it's worst is better than most other hockey forums at their best.
And I wasn't saying that the wings can't improve but I don't think they've done absolutely nothing in the past 3 years. They've accumulated money by not overspending on players that weren't essential to their success for one thing. Maybe the Wings haven't changed as much as some would like but I'm not going to be so quick to write off the things they HAVE done (such as developing players from the farm)

I think you're underestimating how hard it is to "reload" like what happened last time when Stevie Y was on his way out.

I think you're overestimating how much trouble the Wings are in.

#2302688 The truth of our decline.

I think it's a bummer that Detroit was out after the first round...but it happens. We really have been spoiled with such great success and now setting records at home and making the playoffs for 21 years in a row doesn't satisfy anybody. Just think how many players would have sold their souls to even be a part of the playoffs and we have an entire team full of guys who have never experienced the crushing blow that is coming in ninth in the conference...
I'm happy with our team and even though it could be improved (what team can't be?) I'm not worried about the management ever letting this "decline" get very far.
If you wanna see a decline go ask the Oilers how life has been since 90'

Just because he doesn't eat the s*** sandwhich put on his plate by arrogant fans/management doesn't mean he doesn't cheer for the team to win.

The s*** sandwhich being....the team? the idea that the team is awesome?
I don't see why some of you bother being "fans" of a team that you hate so much about? this is beyond constructive criticism at this point.

I didn't know that I was only allowed a certain number of negs in a day. Learning a lot from this thread.

I suggest a drinking game based on the "new guy".

Any suggestions?

One shot for every misspelled player name
One shot per neg
One shot per condescending comment

Good luck liver.

Holy Jesus am I ever sick of clicking on a new thread, all excited to read something new and then seeing the SAME things posted by the SAME people. I still love LGW but some of the new posters (yes my post count is low but I'm not brand new) are driving me insane.

Also, number9 took the words right out of my mouth. "Can't win it all every year..."

#2301157 Babcock and Holland want to keep Homer.

Posted by Ally on 13 May 2012 - 11:46 PM

Can someone please explain to me why Paul Gaustad is so highly though of around here? He doesn't score (7 goals, 14 assists), he doesn't fight (4 fights, 2 wins, 2 loses), he's not that big (6'5, 212 lbs), he's not fast, and he makes 2.5 million dollars. Presumably everyone wants him because he's a defensive forward who's good in the faceoff circle. We definitely don't have anybody like that...er...Justin Abdelkader: (8 goals, 14 assists), (6 fights, 2 wins, 4 loses), (6'1, 215 lbs.), is faster, makes 1.7 million less, and is a defensive forward who's respectable in the faceoff circle.

6'5 and 212 lbs isn't big? :blink:
