#2374471 Larry Murphy Fired by FSD

Posted by The Greek on 26 March 2013 - 07:32 PM

It's still okay to discuss his 100% substantiated hot dog addiction, right?

Indeed. Murph has been quite open about his battle with dollar-dog addiction.

Can we keep the talk about Murphy's alleged alcoholism to a minimum? I know it doesn't really violate any forum rules, and it's just an honest discussion, but we have no indication whatsoever that he has a drinking problem.  For all we know he's a teetotaler.  I'd hate to see LGW become known as the forum that dragged Larry Murphy's name through the mud for no reason whatsoever.
I feel like the speculation started out innocently enough, but it's picked up some steam and it's suddenly become no longer speculation.

For real. You would think Murph has had a couple of Mel Gibson moments from the way people around here talk about him. The way I see it is there is nothing that suggests anything other than the fact that murph is just awkward on camera.

#2374390 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

How many of you are gonna cry if he doesn't sign with us?

I'll be bummed, but I'll get over it. Our D prospects are looking pretty good. Most of the pundits have him pegged as a second pairing guy. We have plenty of those already.

This is guy is a lifelong Detroit Red Wings fan, born in Michigan and people think he would demand #5? Thats beyond crazy.
I really hope the Wings can get this guy, why should he sign with a team that has yet to make playoffs and develop their "big names" the right way?

The #5 thing came out of nowhere, it's complete nonsense. One poster said something along the lines of " I hope he doesn't demand #5 derp derp derp", then people started commenting on it. The whole thing is stupid.

This should provide for a major change in the tone and mood around here. Queue up the "we're one key piece away from winning a cup" threads.

Oh hell yes, I'll definitely take them. Hopefully he can start potting them on his own while trying to beat a goalie.

Dont fix it yet. Those are some deals. Just give me enough time so I can find my credit card and social security number.

#2356307 Howard = Average

Posted by The Greek on 16 February 2013 - 01:31 AM

He's currently 29th in save percentage, 32nd in goals against average, and 15th in wins. I think I might have been generous in saying he's average.

What's the minimum number of games played in your sample?

This. It's mind boggling that people think Cooke did this on purpose.

Not really. People believe what they want to believe. Matt Cooke is a piece of s*** and is hated by many people, and for good reason. For many people, he's lost the benefit of the doubt. Is it fair? Probably not. Do I care? No, f*** Cooke. I said it once and I'll say it again. He never should have been in that position because he shouldn't be in the league.

#2355487 Time to sit Ian White

You guys should take a look at the stat sheet sometime.
Quincey leads the team in blocked shots, and since the first 3 games of the season has been +10. Overall he is top 20 among all defence in the NHL in +/- and he leads our entire team in the stat.
Kronwall has amazingly managed to be on the ice for more goals against than anyone on the team not just at even strength but also while shorthanded and while on the PP.
He may have the most points of our defenceman but he's also one of only 2 defenceman on the roster who are - players, the other being Lashoff. 
Even in tonights game he was directly responsible for 2 goals, including the overtime goal. If anything White should be getting more ice-time, his pairing with Ericsson tonight was by far the best tandem on the ice

Your facts are meaningless around here. People still want to ship E out of town for a bad season in 2010-2011.

I blame cleary for that one. He had no business following Pav that deep while on the pk.

It will probably suck for 2-3 more years. During this time we'll see more of our prospects and less of the old guard. It has always been the MO of this team to grow their own players. It's worked very well so far. Philly has tried building their team through free agency and trades, yet they keep falling short. I would rather go through a few years of low expectations than a few years of disappointments.
