#2645476 Right Handed Players

Posted by Kmahrle83 on 02 January 2016 - 06:26 AM

While I will agree that we are in desperate need of some right handed shots, I will not go so far as to say that it is the main reason that the wings have vastly under performed thus far this season.  To place the blame on Kenny Holland is a bit of an overreaction as well.  Sure, he hasn't brought the right handed shots we need to this team yet, but it's not always as simple as choosing the player you wish to have and plucking them away from another team. There are a number of variables that come into play here that go way beyond what us here at LGW are capable of comprehending.  Do I feel that having those extra right handed shots would help?  Sure but, there are also a number of other things that could help us such as proper line combos, having injured players return, and just plain overall team laziness.  And, those are just three examples off the top of my head.

We've won so few fights over the years, that I wouldn't mind if a Wings player pulled a foreign object out of his pants (a la Ric Flair) and used it on his opponent.  

bonus points if the player and crowd all chant WHOOOOO after each punch

I agree it's so lame for them to delete harmless posts and then lock the thread.  Mods go a little too far "policing", it's not necessary, it takes so much away from this forum because it continually happens.  Just because a mod doesn't share the same sense of humor or even opinions doesn't mean everyone else feels the same.  And if a mod doesn't agree with a post they shouldn't engage in scrubbing the history like it's Soviet Russia then locking and threatening to ban everyone.  It's not like people are posting kiddie porn here...

My brother was perma banned 2 years ago because he told a mod he was "being a nazi", because he made a post about how refs were a holes and used it to vent his frustrations about something that happened in game that the mod didn't agree with.  He contacted matt about this and said it was personal and matt simply said "I trust my mods, sorry".

I don't mind Doc, but Pierre and Olczyk make me want to injure someone.  Their thinly veiled hatred for Detroit really gets to me.

Well then you, my friend should enjoy the hell outta this

You know he was sitting up there pouting, getting a back rub and eating a big slice of cake on a paper plate to feed his depression. :lol:



He was also rubbing hot oil on Pierre's head.

#2488613 Naming the New Arena

Posted by Kmahrle83 on 02 March 2014 - 04:58 PM


I generally agree with most things you say, but no thanks on this.  I'm not a big fan of personality deification.  I'd prefer something that reflects the city/people of Detroit.  s***, I'd be happy with something like Hockeytown Arena, Motor City Center, etc.


If we absolutely have to name it after an individual then we should name it after a true Detroit hero...like Kid Rock or the Insane Clown Posse :tounge2:

Eminem (M&M) Arena, or Slim Shadium.  Lmfao

#2472991 Going to the Joe for the First Time!

Posted by Kmahrle83 on 14 January 2014 - 05:35 PM

Hey guys, as the title would suggest, I’m going to the Joe for the first time this Saturday to watch our boys play the Kings, and I’m super pumped about it!




The reason I’m posting is that I'm looking for a little bit of help. I'm a Canadian from northern Ontario, and therefor am not familiar with the area. The wife booked us a hotel in Windsor for the night, and so my question would be: is there an efficient way to get to and from the Joe without driving (I plan on having a few beverages) from Windsor? If not, where would be the best/safest place to park (I’m not a fan of arena parking lots, and am not opposed to taking a cab)?




I plan on driving down early Saturday morning, so we should have plenty of time before the game. Are there any attractions or sights worth seeing? Places a diehard Red Wings fan needs to go to? Is the Joe an adequate place to buy RW memorabilia, or is there a better place?


I appreciate any and all suggestions. Thanks guys.




Ops, feel free to move this thread if its in the wrong place.


Hockeytown Cafe is a good place for lunch before the game (a bit on the expensive side, but good).  There's also Chelli's Chilli down the road a bit as well. The people mover has several stops that can get you close to things without having to walk forever so pay attention to the map and stations (and I believe you can grab a paper map).  As far as merch, the Joe has some good stuff but also pricey.  They also have a store where you can buy game worn/used merchandise (some even autographed by said player) such as sticks, jerseys, pads , gloves etc.  Very expensive but if I'm not mistaken it's non profit and goes to charity.  


A good after game bar to go to would be Cobo Joes.  It's a wings bar and is very wings oriented.  They even usually do jersey raffles and stuff.  If you go before game you can usually get free raffle tix, then you return after the game for the drawing (must be present.).


Be forewarned, the Joe is an old and severely outdated arena.  But it has personality, and TONS of legendary memories and stigma attached to it.  The bathrooms are old, smelly and outdated, and the seats will leave you feeling cramped.  That said, there's really not a bad seat in the house.  Even nosebleeds are worth while.


Now, I'm sure like most people not from the D, you've heard the stories about how scary it is, and how you'll get robbed etc.  While I will not deny Detroit is in shambles, the downtown area is relatively safe.  You'll have the occasional bum beg change or a cigarette but usually they're very nice.  My advice, don't feed one or you'll have them coming in droves unfortunately.  I've been going to the Joe since I was about 6 or 7 and I'm now 30, and have YET to have incident so no reason to worry.  Detroit is bad but people make it out worse than it is.  Stick to downtown and don't stray into the ghetto and you'll be ok.


One last word of advice, dress warm.  It's winter obviously and the joe being right on the Detroit river, the wind is EXTREMELY cold.  If you don't bring gloves/hat etc, you'll be very sorry if you plan on exploring the area surrounding the Joe.  I took my gf(now wife) to a wings game on one of our first dates, and she didn't heed my advice, so I ended up giving her all my warm gear and ended up walking around MISERABLE most of the time from the cold.  Better safe than sorry.


Any more questions, I'd be happy to answer.


Have fun.

Hey Cr00d.  Park at the greektown casino.  Free parking.  You can then take the Detroit People Mover to and from the Joe for 75 cents a person each way.  I do this every time I go.  You can then hang at the casino after the game if you wish to sober up.  I always make a day of it.  Good luck, Have fun and GO WINGS!!!

Oh wow, sad for TATS, wasn't his dad just on the dads trip in 24/7?


Also, I don't know what's up with jimmy but I can't understand what the issue is.  Most of goals scored against him recently have been straight up snap shots/wristers that beat him clean with no screen or deflection.  He needs his mojo back.
