Topics I've Started

Do you like Family Guy? Why? Why not?

06 February 2013 - 02:38 PM

*Mod Edit*
This thread was split from the Petr Mrazek Mask Thread.  As I noted in that thread, we need to be a little sensitive with discussion in this thread, as for many people their disagreement with this show can be based on political or religious viewpoints.  While you are certainly welcome to hold those viewpoints, it's best to avoid that type of discussion here on LGW.  If you'd like to take up that discussion with another member, you're more than welcome to do so via the PM system.


For clarification, you are welcome to say you like it or don't like it because of political reasons.  But leave it at that, rather than going into specific details.


Back to your regularly scheduled discussion...

LOL.  The only people I know that don't like Family Guy, don't like it because they don't understand the satire.

Yeah that must be it. Or maybe it's because we understand satire but realize their brand of humor doesn't take much talent.

Trading up in the draft...?

16 January 2013 - 02:59 PM

I was just thinking, would you trade up in the draft to acquire a high enough pick to land a legit #1 defenseman? We haven't had to before, but to me that isn't a good enough reason to not do it if the scenario warrants it. Adapt or guarantee your well will run dry one day regardless of how often there was water in the past. I was wondering if we notice a glaring need for a #1 defenseman, would you do trade with someone for as high as the #2 pick to grab a stud defenseman? I know this conversation has been had on Wings forums for years but I think now might finally be the time to actually think about it, since in the past it was more of a want, and now it might be a need.

Would you trade Jimmy Howard for an elite forward/defenseman?

I'm just curious and would like to see the opinions of people here if this scenario were to arise.


We know about Jimmy's contract, two year "try out" sorta deal, this is his last year of it. At any point if another team offers us the elite forward or defenseman we've been coveting so badly, yet ask for Jimmy in return, would you give him up? Knowing we have Gustavsson, who has started and did alright considering how poor Toronto was, and Mrazek, who looks a lot like he could not only start but succeed in the NHL.


I'm not a huge fan of sending away players like trading cards especially after grooming them for so long but for the right deal I may be OK. I'm interested to see what others think.
