#2606307 Meanwhile in sweden...

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on Today, 12:06 AM

I bet she smokes cloves and listens to nothing but obscure 80s hair metal bands...

*looks at thread title*

in Sweden

Then we might fall in love, because as I like none of those things, except for Sweden, I appreciate her obscurity... but that's a conversation her and I will have in private, while indulging onthe delicious nectar that has candy seeds of plenty.

I would, like her alot more, if she showed up to random hockey games dressed as a ref on the off chance they needed her.

Then it'd be love.

#2605896 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by darkmanx on 04 May 2015 - 10:09 AM

I would take a Cup this year if it meant missing the playoffs next year.

 

Versus making the playoffs both years and losing each time in the first round. 

 

I think anyone would take a cup and miss the playoffs.

 

I'm just saying, the parity of the league shows you can win a cup one year, then miss the playoffs the next. Or you can finish the season as the "best regular season team" (Bruins) but the next year miss the playoffs. Detroit isn't a dominant Hockey team anymore, and neither are the other 29 teams.

 

The only constant is Detroit still continues to make the playoffs while all 29 other teams miss them - which in it's own regard is highly impressive.

Well, I guess we can cancel the APB on Stamkos.


I think it was less Stamkos sucking and more the Wings being awesome.

If I wasn't on mobile, I would be posting the "old man yells at cloud" picture from the Simpsons.

So just imagine that's what you're looking at right now.

#2605084 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by kipwinger on 30 April 2015 - 02:24 PM

AN "OZ" REFERENCE?!?! One of my favorite shows of all time, and not just because of all the gratuitous peen. You complete me, kip.

 

I was wondering if that reference would be too in the weeds.  I should have known better.

Whatevs.  You just want another Wing to crush on.  Ladies love Ryan O'Reilly. 

 

Just ask this chick...

#2605023 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by Playmaker on 30 April 2015 - 12:53 PM

New to this board but been following it for awhile now.

 

I just can't understand the amount of hyperbole from some people regarding Holland. We are in an age of absolute parity in the NHL, this isn't the 50's and 60's when Montreal won 5 straight Cups. Making the playoffs is the goal now, because as we have seen anything can happen once the playoffs start (just look at the Kings last year). The days of winning the president's trophy and rolling through the playoffs year after year are over. Holland has made mistakes but he has still done a remarkable job with what he has been given.


Go ahead and tell that to the 22 teams that didn't make the playoffs this year. I am thankful for our playoff streak, it gives me more Wings hockey into the spring/early summer while other fans are watching....baseball.

Great post, but small math correction.  30 NHL teams, 16 make playoffs which would make uh, 14 that didn't make it.  But that's okay, Michigan State Alumni are welcome here, too  :)  (I kid, I kid!)

Jon Cooper immediately moved to ask the NHL to suspend PK Subban as  a result of this arson. 




#2605008 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by Nightfall on 30 April 2015 - 12:16 PM

 

The past was a long time ago.  Let it go.  

 

Wow, so our cup back in 08 and cup finals appearance in 09 was a "long time ago"?  Man, I wonder how Toronto feels with their last cup win.  Or Edmonton for that matter.  Heck, lets ask the Rangers how they feel since their last cup.

This really does show the level of entitlement that Wings fans have grown accustomed to over the course of the last 25 years.  Most teams have bandwagon fans.  The Wings have achieved a level of greatness where the bandwagon effect hasn't been measured because we have been good for so freaking long.

 

Now we are looking at Holland deserving blame for making the playoffs and not getting past the 2nd round since making it to the finals in 09.  When I see this attitude, I just shake my head in disbelief.  Is this really what some Wings fans have deteriorated to?  The salary cap era has made the playing field level.  No team is a slam dunk for a championship anymore. 

 

I will say this much.  Any new GM that comes in may have successes in some areas, but failures in others.  No GM is going to hit it out of the park on everything they do.  So while a new GM may have landed Parise and Suter for Detroit, he may have not gotten Dekeyser and wouldn't have gotten Hossa either because he wouldn't have had the money to get them all. 

 

I get it, Wings fans want a championship.  Its championship or bust mentality that really has to change though.  Only 1 team gets to win the Stanley Cup every year, and the favorite doesn't win it much of the time.  The sooner that we all realize that the Wings are just one of 16 teams in the playoffs and things have to go right for the team that wins it, the better off we will be.
