I'm already emotionally spent and the game hasn't even started yet :(

not many people league wide in today's game are as great as Nick, Stevie and Gordie...


But that's the standard that's been set for getting your name in the rafters. It will be interesting to see if that standard is stuck to moving forward...

They need to stop showing Vladdy or my snuffling will turn into gross sobbing before the ceremony even starts

I plan to start crying at approximately 6:10 EST if anyone would like to join me. Wailing and throwing one's self on the floor will follow shortly after at approximately 6:18, followed by refreshments (whiskey) and snacks (a tub of ice cream) in the lobby. Please RSVP ASAP so I can ensure there is enough to go around. May YFMB be with us all tomorrow.

Especially the Wings, because if they lose on Nick Lidstrom night that would suck hard.


I would like to amend this invitation for those of you who have RSVP'd:

Crying will commence immediately, I repeat IMMEDIATELY upon reading the plethora of articles being released online regarding the amazing career of Nick Lidstrom. Wailing and throwing one's self on the floor has been moved up to 6:05, and refreshments and snacks have been moved up to whatever time is the earliest at which I can legally partake. If this frees up those of you who would have been otherwise unable to attend, please feel free to RSVP at this time

Thank you.

People are seriously rage quitting this team over a deadline deal involving a prospect that may bolt to Sweden and a jobber that requested a trade in order to get some playing time under his belt so he can get a contract next year?

Are these the same people that threatened to rage quit the team if Kenny *didn't* make a trade this year?

Not to be a *****, but I totally get why fans of other teams hate red wings fans. Some of the posts I've read today compared with posts leading up to the deadline are ridiculous.

Do I think Kenny overpaid? Probably, but I'm under NO illusions that I could possibly know how to do his job better than he does.

Forgive me for whining about whining, but DAMN.


#2490056 Nicklas Lidstrom:Greatest Red Wing Ever

Posted by BottleOfSmoke on 05 March 2014 - 12:19 PM

I think it's a very personal question, and you'll get a different answer from each fan. Was Gordie Howe the "greatest" Red Wing? Probably, but no one will ever mean more to me in the winged wheel than Steve Yzerman. Like ZWD said, we are damn lucky to even be having this conversation.

That being said, I am gutted that I will be on the other side of the country when Nick's jersey is raised. I will leave work early, ensure that I have copious amounts of alcohol on hand, and weep like a child. As it should be.

As much as I love Kronwall he is more of a number 2 defenceman, Lidstrom was the number one guy and Kronwall isn't quite their but close.


*twitch*

*twitchtwitch*

If Lids is your bar for a number one defenseman, NO ONE IN THE NHL HAS A NUMBER ONE.

There are not 29 defensemen better than Niklas Kronwall. Hell, there aren't 15 defensemen currently playing in the NHL that are better than Kronwall. He is a number 1. He is not an elite, hall of fame defenseman. Nor are every other team's save for a few.

On the topic of PK, I would love to have him, but not for the price we would pay. He's not "the answer," though his skill set is the boobs. I also agree with others that I don't think he would be able to be coached well by Babs.
