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...

#2538967 Krys Barch unloads his frustrations

I mean... I'd prefer them to be a few inches bigger and a few pounds heavier and a little more aggressive but since they're not I'm not going to discredit their other abilities.


I sometimes hear this from my girlfriend.

I don't know who Krys Barch is... and when someone tells me who he is, I'm going to become very angry once I understand why he's so angry...

#2538812 23 man roster set... say hi to your 2014/15 Wings

Posted by LAWings on 07 October 2014 - 02:11 PM


We really need this thread? As if this roster won't change a zillion times between now and Christmas. Hell, it'll probably change again before Thursday.


Also, in case you haven't noticed, the best players on the 23 man roster will actually play.


The 23 man roster is decided by Holland. So implying Babcock is a hypocrite is actually kind of naive.


Hi...where exactly are you going with your rant, and why, what's your point?  I've just posted a factual direct link from the newspaper.  Do you beat your dog for alerting you to a fire too?


This is the NHL mandated set roster that needs to be filed by 5 pm today, that's why I created this post, 3 months of speculation is over.  The only rotation in and out of game day this Thursday will be the 3 gray sweaters who may not play of Cleary, Weiss and Nosehole. 


But thank you for creating assumptions about a quote someone else made that I posted and what I was 'actually' implying.  I had no idea that was what I was thinking...are you my wife?  You must be my wife.

Maybe they'll resign Bert and Sammy too as insurance policies again.  Putting the band back to together...reminds me of this:


#2529820 Favorite Ken Holland Catchphrase / Quote

Posted by LAWings on 03 July 2014 - 03:41 PM

My vote: "I don't know why they're not coming here" because it demonstrates, more than any of the other quotes, just how out-of-touch Holland seems to be. The league might have passed him by.


This times one billion.

Fantasy Player Tree


"We got seven left-hand D. I love (to have a righty), but how do you get it?" Red Wings coach Mike Babcock said over the weekend at the NHL entry draft in Philadelphia. "It's great to have this fantasy; like (general manager) Kenny Holland would tell you, there's no tree. I've been all over him, but there's no tree to grab them off of, so we'll get what we get."


Here...here's your goddamned tree assholes:



#2529769 Hollands new contract a no brainer?

Posted by LAWings on 03 July 2014 - 01:33 PM

We blew it with Yzerman, turns out he's becoming a pretty good GM.  Look at the wheeling and dealing he's done this past week, very impressive.  Although I think the St Louis fiasco could have been avoided, he managed to get a good deal out of it.  I doubt he will come back to Detroit with the 4 year contract he has with Tampa. 


Jim Nill in 2 seasons has turned Dallas around.


Meanwhile, Babs and Kenny are still looking for that mythical free agent tree, unable to make a trade while droning on about how these are different times as every serious cup contender made some kind of move to better their team.  Any wonder no one wants to come to Detroit? 

#2527070 Alfie informs Wings he wants to return

Posted by LAWings on 29 June 2014 - 09:28 PM


Haha! Back to the Future is still an awesome movie.  And, I think that joke is just about as old.


I don't usually try to predict the future and try to pass it off as fact like it has already happened.  But, I agree that they probably won't end up with Iginla, Stastny, or Vanek.  I don't think 'nobody' will happen either, though.  I think they'll make a good run at Ehrhoff and/or Niskanen... and I think either one of those guys makes more sense to sign than Iginla/Stastny/Vanek.  Nothing's written in stone, though, and you never know what could happen.


It is a classic....


History is blueprint / roadmap of where we came from to help determine where we are going.


How I feel whenever Holland / Babs opens their collective mouth nowadays:



#2518699 Holland Holding on to Jeff Blashill

Posted by LAWings on 01 May 2014 - 02:26 PM

Ive been saying since last year to bring up Blashill.  He has a very impressive resume he's won every championship of the league he's coached in, knows how to use kids, even spent time as assistant in NHL so he knows what to do.


Babcock's time is over, his system doesn't work here anymore, time for some new blood and energy.  Blashill knows these kids, he's doing very well with them.

#2518626 Wings will buy out Tootoo, not Franzen.

Posted by LAWings on 01 May 2014 - 09:05 AM

Some of you clearly are not understanding that buying Franzen out would be one of the worst decisions a GM could make when they can easily TRADE him for picks or something else, c'mon folks think here....  At $3.95 million a year, Franzen is a steal, and he can easily be traded for his average 25 goals / 50 points a year (.31 GPM / .61 pts PG).  His concussion messed him up this year, but 41 pts in 54 games is pretty good for his paygrade.


Do the math yourselves, go to capgeek and see what's available in UFA for $4 million.  See how easily he can be traded for that price tag.  Buyout talk is just plain retarded and shows a complete lack of understanding the mechanics of contracts and team building.



#2514359 Least Favorite Wings Players

Posted by LAWings on 23 April 2014 - 12:48 PM

Glendening.  I'm sure he's a great kid, but he produces zero offense.  I don't understand the love affair Babs has with him, for a team that is offense starved the last few years, why bring on a guy that produces nothing?  He's in the top 5 of least producing Wing forwards we've EVER had, I think top 3 actually.  So what if he brings his lunch pail to work every day... he just doesn't produce anything while at work.  Most companies fire you for that.

#2513127 Matt Cooke offered in-person hearing for knee hit

Posted by LAWings on 22 April 2014 - 02:20 PM



Seriously at what point does the league kick this guy out ? Does he have to seriously injure someone or even kill one ? At least it will be 5 games + if I'm Shanaban I'd be giving him 15 games´at least.


Bordelau looked ready to absolutey kill him sadly the refs stepped in.


He HAS seriously injured people.  He ended Marc Savards career.  He almost ended Erik Karlssons career.  Took Lecavlier out for half a year... Matt Cooke is the biggest POS in hockey.  I wish no one injury in hockey, no one...except Matt Cooke, I want him to get taken out either by the NHL or an enforcer, end his career one way or another, this guy needs to go.


Matt Cookes greatest hits, this was 4 years ago...
