I'm liking Trevor as the color commentator


edit: and I'm not referring to the color of his skin

#2552017 Chelios Is Not Too Fond of Shanahan

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 November 2014 - 04:59 PM

Meh.  He didn't really say anything too bad.  Shanny didn't have management experience and he is a "hockey politician".  


Not like Chelios called him out for sleeping with a teammates wife................................. :sarcasm:

WTF is with the moron camera guys cutting to that annoying and awkward corner cam every time there is a dam powerplay, for the entirety?


I wish I could jump through my TV screen into their truck and punch them in the face and tell them to quit trying to be artsy and different and just show the regular damn camera angles.

It was the right call. Francine lazily backed into the blue and made no effort to recognize it and get out.

Is this 1999? Crease rule?

No but you can't set up shop both feet in the blue like he did.

#2545684 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Posted by Son of a Wing on 31 October 2014 - 11:35 AM


Eh...I don't think this has anything to do with UFAs, really.  Your own players are just as likely to get injured.  The Weiss situation is tough because he lied about his condition when we signed him.  Normally that wouldn't have happened.  The luck the Wings have had with UFAs is just that: bad luck.


Modano got his wrist sliced open.  Weiss misled us (supposedly) about an injury and sat out most of last season.  Samuelsson held us hostage because his boob hurt.  I mean, there really isn't anything to be learned by this. It's just a horrible fluke and we happen to have had three of them the last few years.


Are you just assuming this??  Everyone has a physical and a medical history before they sign a contract.


He was confident (as were our doctors) that he could come back from his injury and he hasn't been able to.  


That's not lying.  Unless you know something the rest of us don't.


I'm frustrated with the situation but I'm not going to just assume he lied because it's convenient.

#2545975 Weiss sent down to GR- conditioning assignment

Posted by Wheelchairsuperhero on 01 November 2014 - 03:34 PM

Undisputed heavyweight champion last year, great caphit loves the role of the bodyguard and chips in with a few points here and there ? Whats not to like ?

His 8 points in 76 games. This comparison is pointless. One is a 4th line enforcer who just happens to skate around with a stick as a formality, not because anyone expects him to score with it. The other played way, way less games and was injured doing it. I'm obviously not happy with Weiss and his signing either, but hindsight always makes things so clear. If anyone says they predicted his sports hernia surgery and several setbacks I think they're lying. But anyway I really wonder what they'll do. I hope he gets healthy but man this is getting ridiculous.

#2545504 Wings great Gordie Howe resting after 'serious stroke'

Posted by roboturner on 29 October 2014 - 10:34 PM

I swear I'm not always as negative as I might come off around this place.

But I'm a realist, and I'm with Playmaker on this one.


I mean he is 86! I think anybody would be lucky live that long even without the wear and tear of a (extremely long) hockey career.


It's not like he's 50 and it's a huge shock to his family and they weren't ready for the end. They've know this was coming for a while and and they've all gotten to spend time with him.


I personally think it's extremely selfish to force someone to live in anguish for months on end just because the people around you are can't accept it and are desperately trying to delay the inevitable. Not to mention it puts the everybody in the position of 'waiting around for you to die' and that's some tough s*** to go to bed and wake up with every morning for possibly months on end. 


I'm sure most of his family is there now. I know it sucks, but nobody can live forever. Just make sure he's comfortable and if it's time, it's time.

#2541736 Joe Louis Arena to be Demolished

Posted by evilmrt on 17 October 2014 - 03:15 PM

It's like saying a 78 Pacer is a classic car just because you got laid in it.  The teams were great, the building sucks. 


It wasn't even intended to be a hockey building.  Coleman Young threw up a quickie building to try and keep the Pistons from leaving Cobo, but they went to the Silverdome anyway.  Then he had to beg the Wings to move there so he wouldn't have this huge new arena sitting empty.  It's not a classic building by any stretch of the imagination.  Even if they didn't tear it down, it's still would suck.


Look at this from an architectural point of view....




It looks like some nondescript warehouse. 


Here's the Olympia having more charm even after being abandoned for several years....



#2541608 Weiss

Posted by GoWings1905 on 16 October 2014 - 07:49 PM

The Wings have six goals in three games.

Weiss needs to play to see if he can give the team much-needed help offensively. If he still can't contribute, then there's a serious problem, but Joakim Andersson and Andrej Nestrasil aren't going to solve the lack of goals issue.

Unless there are lingering injury concerns, I don't really understand Weiss being scratched unless there is more going on behind the scenes.

#2540789 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by kliq on 15 October 2014 - 10:49 AM

I don't think Meyers would require much more than Kindl + prospect (Frk) + 1st rounder. I think the Wings should take a shot if the puzzle pieces they have to give up aren't going to be seeing time with the big club in the next 4-5 years. Petry isn't worth more than Kindl and a 3rd round pick.


I wish this was the case, but media outlets were reporting that Buffalo was starting the conversation with one of Gus, Tatar, Jurco or Mantha.
