#2609522 Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Posted by Rivalred on 21 May 2015 - 05:16 PM

 
Never once said it was anything but a large cap hit. I've simply been saying that it isn't a contract that is gonna handicap a team. 5 mil for just 3 years is manageable for a lot of teams. 

Larkin gonna be paired with AA. Dat speed...

"Larkin also participated in the IIHF World Junior Championship earlier this season, where he tied for the tournament lead with five games in five games."

Swear I didn't write this


#2607513 TSN Play of the Year

Posted by rrasco on 13 May 2015 - 12:41 PM

 

Last year there was a massive contingent of Slovakian voters who helped propel Tatar to the TSN Play of the year title.

 

In one match-up vs TJ Oshie, Tatar edged him out with a massive comeback where both guys had millions of votes.

 

I believe that is the reason our votes were timing out after a certain # cast. A lot of Blues fans were complaining we were cheating...(we were)

 

Technical advantage.  It's the subtle interference of the POY vote.




#2593980 ECQF : (7) Sénateurs d'Ottawa vs. (2) Les Canadiens de Montréal

Posted by Mckinley25 on 16 April 2015 - 04:03 PM

Its brutal. Not to sound like Don Cherry, but I miss the hockey that I grew up with. Subban would be made to answer for his cheapshots in the form of a fight. Nowadays these guys can het away with anything and that's why you see these insane slashes and hits from behind. There is no physical punishment to deter this garbage. It makes me sick.


It was never a deterrent anyway, it still happened, otherwise you'd say, "I miss old time hockey when this never happened and there were never any fights because the threat of a fight was enough to stop cheap shots."


#2593405 S'matter Yzerman, afraid of the jersey you wore for so long?

Just when I think this board is starting to show some class, you go and open your big heretical trash mouth. 

 

"Look at me, I hate possibly the most beloved Red Wing player of all time now... because he makes personnel decisions for the team mine has to play against."

 

Pathetic

 

And may I recommend dropping the whole 'screw dirty tampa' bit as well. Those people can't read anyway, so it's falling on deaf ears.

 

It's hard for me to idolize a man who turned his back on Detroit and walked away from the organization in order to become a general manager in the world's biggest trailer park.  Might as well be the general manager of a Cinnabon, its more prestigious. 

 

It's even harder for "fans" of that trailer park team to understand why they suck, given their measly 45 chromosomes and their Type II diabetes. 

 

Lay off the Mountain Dew you swamp rats!


I should have known better  :lol: 

Though, what I said wasn't directed at you. I've seen this stuff all over. Makes little sense to me.

 

 

I know, I'm just having fun. 


If there is a Game 5 I'm flying down. Already bought tickets for the plane and the game. Now where to sleep?!?!?!?!

 

Sleep on a cardboard box under an overpass.  You'll fit right in with the locals.

Honestly, why do you guys/gals even care? Were/are you planning on going to Tampa Bay for game 1? I really don't see the issue with this - it's home ice. If a team wants to fill a building with their fans, that's their prerogative. Unless you live in Tampa and/or planned on making the trek down there, why do you even care at all? Seems like something to complain about.

 

Because the Tampa Bay lightening and their turd fans are now the opposition.  And every thing they do is therefore stupid, sucky, and asinine.  Whereas everything we do is absolutely right on a cosmic (almost divine) level.  Because it's the playoffs...and they're stupid, and we rule. 




#2593386 S'matter Yzerman, afraid of the jersey you wore for so long?

Posted by kipwinger on 15 April 2015 - 10:26 AM

Because Gordie didn't PLAY for another NHL franchise or anything... But I like the enthusiasm lol.

 

I know he did.  And I would have said the same about him if we'd been playing his team in the playoffs.  My point, however, is that Yzerman doesn't get "Red Wings Legend" levels of devotion from me while he's actively trying to beat our team.  When he retires from the sport altogether, he gets to be a Wing again.  Until then, f*** that guy and his garbage ass team.  I hope his entire team, family, and friends all get the mumps.  Punk ass *****.

f*** Steve Yzerman.  He's not the Red Wings, and the Red Wings aren't him.  He stopped getting the Gordie Howe treatment the second he associated himself with another active NHL hockey team.  Particularly with one that we're playing in the playoffs. 

 

I hope we crush Stevie, the Lightening, the city of Tampa, and the whole state of Florida for that matter.  Let an earthquake crumble it, let the fires rage, let it burn tof****** ash and then let the waters rise and submerge the whole rat-infested place, Stevie right along with it.

 

This is playoff hockey.

Can't believe there's people here actually bashing Yzerman.  So he didn't want to wait for Kenny to leave. Instead, he goes to Tampa, builds a good team and gets a 1st round pick for Kyle Quincey.  You gotta love it.  

 

He uses spray tan.  Screw that guy.  Next thing you know he'll be saying "Gentlemen, start your engines!" at the Daytona 500.  If that hillbilly's organization wants a rivalry, I'll give them a rivalry.  My "hate dial" is turned up to 11 and I'm gunning for Stevie Y, his pretty boy goal scorer, and the rest of his grisly pack of philistines.

#2574362 Is Jimmy Our Playoff Goalie?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 24 February 2015 - 11:53 AM

this thread sounds entirely too familiar. Apparently a goalie isn't allowed to have a couple bad games after missing over a month of hockey. Trade Jimmy for a 7th rounder and bring up that ahl goalie that lets in 4+ goals every game and roll with that


#2568764 2/5 GDT - Red Wings 3 at Avalanche 0

Posted by TheXym on 05 February 2015 - 10:50 PM

Just got in due to an imbecile driving a huge rig for the gas fracking out here somehow blowing his transmission while making a right turn into their pipe yard and completely blocking route 29 (a two lane highway here in rural northeast PA) and we sat in traffic for over a half hour before they came up to tell the cars what had happened and the road was completely blocked. Nothing like driving on dirt roads that weren't fully plowed in a Ford C-Max with not the highest ground clearance.... At least rehearsal went well and my wife has decided to sing this season.

What is the short recap? I know Abdelkader hit the bingo, bango, bunghole on the PP, and saw the delay of game penalty. Thanks in advance.

Are the wheels on the bus? (Or tank). Did they light a mup? (Sorry, couldn't help that one). :)

#2319493 Reminder: Personal attacks, trolling will not be tolerated

I miss the neg button. Seemed like a more efficient way to tell someone their opinion sucked rather than the threads being taken over by the personal attack posts.


#2568264 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Holland is god

 

I'm not expecting Ken Holland to be the creator of all time, space, matter, and energy.  Nor do I expect him to redeem my everlasting soul.  But I'll reserve judgement until all the facts have come to light. 




#2568372 Great Brandon Prust Article

Posted by sputman on 04 February 2015 - 07:08 PM

I like fighting. I miss the days when if we were losing 5-1 somebody would give the fans something to cheer for.

 

But Prust himself admits that he's out to run people. The only difference between he and a rat is that he'll fight. His job essentially is protecting his team from people like himself.

 

Rats are the guys who show zero respect for opponents. They’ll go after the top skill player and take runs at goalies and then won’t answer the bell when it comes time to fight.

 

 

In my head I’m thinking, How am I going to run him (Lundqvist) without getting a penalty?
