#2684973 The person below me game...

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 22 August 2016 - 02:22 PM

I have a trip planned for tomorrow-driving cross country from satan's ******* back to MI.

TPBM has mastered the art of the "goodbye." It's one of the social skills that has always eluded me, so much so that it earned me the nickname "ghost" because I would just...leave.

Good for him, hope he gets a decent shot.


#2684731 Patrick Roy steps down as Head Coach and VP of Hockey Operations

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 12 August 2016 - 02:57 PM

Roy was only in net for 9 of the 11 goals though :)


But in our hearts, he was in for all 11 ;)

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..

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

#2680768 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

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*****!


#2680722 Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 30 June 2016 - 07:12 PM

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."
