Holy s*** you missed the glow puck era? Consider yourself lucky. It was heinous. Like watching hockey on acid, only not as fun as that sounds :lol:


#2682324 Who do you have as the top 5 Wings of all time..

Miller


Which Helm?


#2682018 Who should get A?

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 03 July 2016 - 12:27 AM

Lol would be the worst skilled NHL captain in history probably


He'll get the C and immediately power up to Steve Yzerman Form and we'll all be sitting here looking stupid, never having known he was actually a Pokemon all along...


...or something

If anyone needs a break from all the hand wringing, you should definitely check out Paul Bissonette's Twitter feed for today:

Butt patting is now a stat?  This new analytics is getting a bit out of hand! 


If it is I should be getting 12 mil per for 8 years. I'm elite, m*****f*****!

Buts are goals.

Revirements are turnovers


But(t)s are for patting. I haven't decided yet what to do with revirement(t)s...

FTR, I'd be fine with Backes at 6 per if it were only a 2-3 year deal.

Does Backes still seem practical? He's going to want a long term and he's already 32 and his production was worse than Zetterberg's. It got to a point where St. Louis was using him on the third line.

2 year deal would be ideal but I think he's going to want a long term deal.


I *love* Backes, and it's no secret that I've wanted him on the Wings for awhile. That being said, I wouldn't sign him for more than a 3 year deal to start.


#2679522 The Holiday tradition: 2016 Draft thoughts.....

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 25 June 2016 - 07:08 PM

I'm embarrassed to admit that when I saw all the draft day photos of the kids going around I had a brief moment of "WTF why are they all wearing Vladdy's number smh."

@tkulfan: Holland said he'll focus on replacing Datsyuk in free agency....what does he want to do with this newly created cap space? "Spend it"

We shall see...

@Buccigross:Steve Yzerman basically told @KathrynTappen: "we made our best offer to Stamkos. Take it or leave it."

He's played for more teams than Jagr

@THNKenCampbell: The Detroit Red Wings have just emerged as the frontrunner in the Steven Stamkos Sweepstakes, in my opinion.
