#2534583 Alfie wants to play

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 19 August 2014 - 07:15 PM

 
 
 
The question I asked was based on LeftWinger saying he wanted the Wings to sign some depth players instead of resigning Alfie. Suter and Backes are not UFA so they cannot be signed. Plus, neither would be considered as "depth", and neither would fit under the cap.

My tongue is never far from my cheek, cowboy. :lol:

I think Kopitar and Weber are better fits. Kopitar could center our 3rd line if Helm is injured again.

LIES

i.e. I still can't stand Weber and just want an excuse to have Backes as a Wing.

And :lol: at *IF* Herlmer is hurt again...don't you know that someone's dad's grandpa's chiropractor said Herlmer is a whiny piss baby?! GET WITH THE TIMES MAN!

Out of curiosity.....what depth players out there do you want?


Ryan Suter and David Backes

So...it's really over?


#2534447 Ice Bucket ALS Challenge: Bettman edition

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 17 August 2014 - 10:29 PM

I wish the bucket would have been filled with something else


Boogers? Pig's blood? T-Rex semen? Hitler's rotted entrails?

Or are we talking double rainbows? Sunshine mixed with clean sheets? PUPPY BREATH?!

I need to know. It's for science.

Dan Cleary accepted the challenge.  I like that he put up the info for donating online.  I haven't seen anyone do that yet.


UGH. I hate what this re-signing has done to people's (myself included) perception of Cleary. That video just made me want to hug him and beg him to retire.

Also, did anyone else notice he referred to himself as "Danny?" :lol:

I love these. It may seem silly, but it's raising awareness and leading to huge increases in donations!


#2534197 Who is YOUR most under-appreciated/unsung Red Wing?

I've never even heard of that guy


He plays for the Dertrert Rerd Werngs


#2534176 Confused on the direction of this team going forward

This is a good piece:
 
Core Values: Henrik Zetterberg at center of transitioning Red Wings [Chris Peters, CBSSports.com]


Good article. Also,

"Kronwall has remained an effective No. 1 defenseman for the team."

SUCK IT HATERZ


#2534028 What Might Have Been: Gretzky to Detroit?

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 11 August 2014 - 07:53 PM

Saying you wouldn't trade Yzerman for Gretzky is a lot like saying you wouldn't trade Ray Bourque for Bobby Orr.  Sure he's a good player, but you're getting the best player in the history of the game (at his position) while he's still in his prime.  Of course you make that trade. 


Nope.

But that's why I'm not a GM :lol:

Well that and a plethora of other reasons, I suppose...


#2534026 What Might Have Been: Gretzky to Detroit?

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 11 August 2014 - 06:30 PM

100 times out of a 100 I would decline to trade Stevie. Even for The Great One. Stevie was our heart and soul, and brought so much more to this team than just points or defensive capabilities. He was my hero growing up, and while I can't say I wouldn't have still been a Wings fan, boy those years would have felt different for me.

If I had to guess, Detroit might have been able to trade Gallant/Klima + Joe Murphy + more cash than LA.


Would make this trade 100/100.


#2533925 Marchenko

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 08 August 2014 - 09:07 PM

Aw man I can't wait until they do one of those for Hampus Melen. Then we can have a Hampus Melen thread, and I can get a Hampus Melen jersey to wear to games at Hampus Melen Arena in honor of our new captain Hampus Melen. The future sounds amazing!

But anyway Alexei Marchenko!

Edit: Alexey? Alexee? Hampus?

Was reading up on our prospects and saw that the Hampus was diagnosed with a respiratory disease this last season! Why did it have to be him??? :confused:

#2533680 Who is YOUR most under-appreciated/unsung Red Wing?

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 04 August 2014 - 10:58 AM

Larry Murphy


Whenever I see the words "Larry Murphy," I say it in my head (and sometimes out loud with my mouth) like "Charlie Murphy" as Rick James from the Chapelle Show.

Just thought everyone should know.


#2533610 Candiens, P.K. Subban agree to 8 year contract

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 03 August 2014 - 12:06 PM

 I just don't really understand why he gets as much criticism as he does for what are usually very minor things.


I do. People just don't like to admit it.

I am in no way saying that the people who dislike him here at LGW do so for race-related reasons, but the reality is that prejudice is, unfortunately, alive and well within the hockey community. Does he have a bit of moxie? Sure. But if he were a white Canadian *some* people wouldn't look twice at his actions or have a problem with his "attitude." I don't think there is anything over the top about P.K.'s actions, and he is a young kid who will continue to mature.

Mods, feel free to delete if you think this will stir s*** or incite politics discussions, but I felt it needed to be said.
