Wow, this did not take the direction I anticipated.
 
If you'd like to discuss Mr. Babcock in general, please take it to PMs or start a separate topic.  Much obliged.


Really, it didn't? I was ready with popcorn the minute the thread was created.


#2561791 Randy Carlyle relieved of his duties by Leafs

He had the option to become a ufa about 6-7 months agao, but the 64m they dangled in front of him was too good to turn down i guess ? No other team would have offered him 8 x8m / yr deal.. for just being mediocre, 30 goals a year, getting to do and play whatever he wants.. only in Toronto do they pay that high for mediocrity and accept such mediocrity


If a point per game players are mediocre then make sure you tell ovechkin and stamkos that new revelation. He might be one dimensional and lazy defensively. But he is anything but mediocre offensively

Ya. I'm all for giving credit/blame where it is due. It was a bad goal, but should he be flogged for it? He knows he screwed up and he made up for it the rest of the game. He isn't one to make excuses and he played as well as he could from there on out. Yes a rookie. He'll learn when to be aggressive and when to stay in position.

I actually like "Van Hagar" over "Van Halen"


For shame.

I'd be ok with trading Tatar for Myers...


#2561423 Visiting Fan

Posted by Euro_Twins on 07 January 2015 - 07:54 PM

Toronto fans are the most annoying just because the sheer volume of them that show up to the Joe.
But in all honesty, they're still some of the nicest people, I was sitting in front of a few Toronto fans a few seasons ago and a guy accidentally spilled a small bit of beer on my girlfriend so he got up, got napkins and brought us two rounds each.
He apologized like nine times and it really was an accident.
And his wife was one of the sweetest women.
She gave me some tums, And an aspirin, she was only in her early thirties but acted like a mother.
Its probably just because I'm so devastatingly handsome, ha.

Honestly aside from a few drunken idiots, I've never seen any wings fan give another fan reason to worry.
And even the drunk guys were put in check by other wings fans...
It may be Detroit, but wings fans tend to be pretty classy people.


Maybe it was cause you looked homeless and she felt bad? :lol:

You sure you're a Wings fan? :lol:


Lol Ya, my thoughts exactly. Wings lose, complain, wings win, complain more. That's what a true wings fan does.

:ninja:

Carlyle didn't compete hard enough


#2560353 Pens aquire David Perron from Oilers

Posted by Euro_Twins on 03 January 2015 - 06:54 PM

Only on LGWs would we ***** about Holland not trading for a guy the that the team has no use for.


Nobody ever wanted him 5 minutes before he was traded. Do we really want to be like the pens. Throwing away all our picks and prospects at the deadline every year for rentals and mortgaging the future


#2560323 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 03 January 2015 - 02:54 PM

Also, we've lost some games. True contenders (e.g. Kings, Blues, Bruins) don't lose games. Shawn Thornton was available, but Ken Holland is an idiot and so he let him go to the Panthers. Do you think it's a coincidence that the Panthers have beaten us twice? Thornton and Mitchell and Bolland give them toughness and leadership and character, something the Wings completely lack.
 
We'll be lucky to make the playoffs.


Mcgratton could solve all our problems


#2560128 Happy Holidays To All My Fellow LGW'rs!

Happy New Years!  I was busy sending texts on his phone. 


On my phone? Lol, that's where it went, makes sense now :lol:

Well... now that we're all clear in the knowledge that wingsfan1991 thinks that Weiss is hot garbage... the rest of us can go back to discussing why exactly it is that Weiss is not getting appropriate ice time...
 
 
I just don't get it.  Weiss was brought in to be a 2C.  He's back in game shape, fought off minor injuries since returning from a couple major ones... and now, with limited ice time, he's putting up points... but he's not elevated in the lineup  What gives?
 
Jurco's a rookie... put him on the fourth. He shouldn't mind.
Helm and Abby are energy/banger guys, rotate them onto the fourth. They'll still be effective players.
 
Instead...  No... let's let a guy who's a proven top-six winger languish on the fourth line with limited ice time.  Makes sense to me... :glare:
 
EDIT: removal of troll baiting


Well Weiss is a proven top 6 center. But since being put on the wing in Detroit on any line he has produced well. I understand not wanting to break up the sheahan line, and helm had a good game but he isn't top 6 material. He can't score on the 5 breakaway per game that he gets. Move helm to the third/fourth line, and put Weiss back where he belongs. In the top 6

Cory Emmerton >\= Weiss.
Weiss, Cleary, Kindl... Get rid of them all.


Now you're for sure doing this on purpose.

So who were the guys saying helm is not a top 6/9 player and that Weiss is!?? Lol Helm is heart and soul he definitely should be 3rd line guy. Weiss give me a break.


3rd line yes. Top 6 no. And Weiss is much better. He's almost a point per game despite being limited to 8-12 minutes a night.
