I'm gonna go burn some incense to spiritually cleanse myself after that abomination of a game.

Just throwing this out there- Someday Jiri Hudler's daughter is going to Google her dad's name and That Picture will come up.


I would recommend that Jiri Tlusty's daughter never google her father

Ha.
I wrote Gordie Howe, it auto corrected to however.

I turned off autocorrect on my phone because it resulted in some pretty sketchy texts :lol:

Love him on Twitter haha since he went to Florida it's only gotten better....

"@strombone1: 690 PLAYERS
30 TEAMS
14 QUALIFIERS
BUT THERE IS ONLY ONE GOAL
ONE NIGHT ONLY

#weliveforthis
#nhldraftlottery"

He followed that when they got the first overall pick with "I've never won anything before!!"

But i think this is my all-time favorite....


"@strombone1: Don't think so....."@FlaPanthers: Does Roberto Luongo have the Twitter?"

:P


Eddie Lack is pretty funny on Twitter too.

LGW! And nobody post THAT picture of Happy, please.

She got placed their* in witness protection for her cooperation in bringing down a pay for butt pat scheme.

She was the ringleader, but she folded on someone.


How the hell else was I gonna get that sweet deal?

Also, *there

Also, kip, it's complicated. There're a lot of things I love here. There're also a lot of things I despise. I want to move closer to MI, but it's not in the cards right now. /seriousness


#2579260 Red Wings acquire Marek Zidlicky from NJ for Cond. 2016 3rd Round Pick

Awwwww s***.  You've bitten off more than you can chew on this one.  While your logic is solid, you argument is vulnerable in one key way.  What if a bunch of people on LGW think that Brendan Smith is WAY better than he is?  I mean, what if they thought that instead of a third pair defenseman with upside, he was a "dynamic two way defenseman"?  What if they thought that instead of a mediocre defenseman who has underwhelmed both offensively, and defensively, they thought of him as a future cornerstone of our blueline and in some cases have even compared him favorably to Keith Yandle?  Then, it absolutely WOULD be like scratching Kronwall for Marchenko wouldn't it?  And that's how your argument is wrong. 
 
Because Brendan Smith, despite his past and/or current performance, is a frickin' defensively stalwart. 


I see what u did there...

Actually your refutation is flawed because you're claiming that peoples feelings  (including yours) towards a player trumps my argument. People's feelings wont change my mind. Statistics will and practicality will. Quiet simply logic will.... Smith has 11 points in 57 games and is -2 and Kindl has 11 points in 33 games and is +1. Almost HALF as many games as Smith. Kyle Quincey has 13 points in 53 games; more PPG than Smith. Does this mean Quincey is superstar Keith Yandle mode and Smith is semi Keith Yandle? He^l Quincey isn't even known for offense!
 
I mean we can even take this to last season and compare Danny Dekeyser to Smith. Dekyser is a defensive minded defensemen yet he tallied more points in less games than your "two way playing stalwart"  Smith.
 
You need some legitimate data to claim a hypothesis to be true. Not feelings.  
 
Regardless with the above mentioned stats I stick to my opinion on the matter. Marchenko could very well replace one of the left handers if Babcock thinks its viable. At this point the only one I can think of is Smith as the other defenseman (except ericsson) have played pretty well, including Smith. But Kronwall wont be the one to go. Neither will Dekeyser or Quincey pairing. Obviously not Zidlicky. Maybe Ericsson? Doubt that. 


You didn't see what he did there :lol:


#2579249 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on Yesterday, 12:57 PM

I know that it's supposed to be a joke, but it's not funny anymore. I could see how it would have been useful maybe back in November/December to make a point, but the point has been made, the team is really good, and tbh the constant "tank it" in every thread is akin to people trolling more than anything else


It's no worse than the "we like our team/kicked the tires" bulls*** that gets spewed every time Holland does something that people don't like, and that's been going on for *years.* It drives me nuts, but it is what it is. Some people think it's funny. I don't. Oh well.

Lupul should sue this guy

Edit: I love how it goes from "let's problem solve Lupul's visor issues" to "the man can NOT stop stroking it in front of others." Solid.

I love when he talked about how he refused to defect, but kept fighting the Russian government until they handed over his passport and *let* him leave.

My ideal playoff situation is we hoist Lord Stanley, bottle the tears of all the butt hurt fans we beat along the way and then all of lgw gets together at the captains house with yzerman and lidstrom and everyone else and we have a huge butt pat party!


I can dig it

My ideal playoff situation is we go in 100% healthy and on fire. Let the other cards fall where they will.
