#2514359 Least Favorite Wings Players

Posted by LAWings on Yesterday, 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...


#2512769 Claude Julien wants less embellishment

Posted by LAWings on 20 April 2014 - 09:22 PM

After watching this video last night, even the Bruins announcer is yelling at the players to get up and that they are embarrassing pointing out 6'8" Chara dropping like a sack of potatoes.  I chuckled and said watch little Tater is going to 'take' Chara down.


Couldn't believe when it happened and he got the penalty.  I've rewatched that play a couple times and Chara totally embellished that, even held Taters stick.  No way a guy that big falls apart like that. 



#2511436 The Datsyuk Goal

Posted by LAWings on 19 April 2014 - 11:57 AM

I've had to watch this thing like 15 times and analyze it, still amazed, he confused three Bruins in the neutral zone and left them standing, and then 2 defenders basically fell over backing up...he beat all 6 bruins on the ice by himself.  But it gets better, notice when he scored, he had that sly look but no overly joyous celebration, keeping it humble, "it's only game one, let's stay focused" attitude.

Franzen skates over, and if you look he leans down and says something to Dats and points back to where it all happened.  By the body motion you can tell he is in disbelief, I can here him now, in his mule accent: "Wat yu do there...it...but...how?"

Datsyuk then maintains composure with the other 4 guys, gives them each a small boop on the head, and reaffirmed to them by his leadership at that moment to keep it cool, more work to be done.  Epic.  And if this is the attitude the whole team posses, that it's one goal, one game, keep it humble, come into practice and work even harder...then good things are going to happen.

#2510170 Round 1 Line Combinations

Posted by LAWings on 17 April 2014 - 10:37 AM

We have a shot at beating the B's if we use the line combinations that got us into the playoffs without Z and Dats.  The explosiveness of the kids pays off.  Reverting back to what was not working before they went down is a sure loss.  If this is the lineup then we're in trouble:


Franzen-Datsyuk-Abdelkader, Tatar-Sheahan-Nyquist, Jurco-Helm-Alfredsson, Miller-Glendening-Legwand

#2509731 Round 1 Line Combinations

Posted by LAWings on 15 April 2014 - 12:06 AM

We saw how well the kids played with Dats and Z out, so why not creat havoc for the B's and put Dats on the 3rd line?


Nyquist - Legwand - Franzen

Tatar - Sheahan - Jurco

Helm - Datsyuk - Alfredsson

Miller - Glendenning - Abdelkader


It may look strange, but how do you counter that?

#2509438 Poll: Who was the Wings regular season MVP

Posted by LAWings on 13 April 2014 - 07:54 PM

It's a 4 way tie for me between Bertuzzi, Cleary, Samuelsson, Weiss... without them we would never have seen Tatar, Nyquist, Sheahan, Jurco.


Thank you gents for sucking so bad.

#2507638 bashing skid the kid

Posted by LAWings on 09 April 2014 - 11:50 AM

I'll allow it, nothing wrong with a bit of healthy Crosby bashing before a game against the Pens and the potential first round of playoffs, just keep it civil. 


Hell will be unleashed in the Photoshop War if that's how it pans out, Crosby will receive no mercy from me. :lol:


With the mod's blessing, and since the game is also on NBC tonight, I'm gonna put this right here:



#2504261 Ovechkin and ES

Posted by LAWings on 31 March 2014 - 10:09 PM

LOL. Why would anyone want a 27 year old RW that scores 45+ goals per year and is good for 200 hits per year. blindness by some is funny. Praising backstrom over Ovie? really? I would take Ovie every day over backstrom. Not even close. Go do a google search for Backstrom struggling to score. There have been stories about it every year he has been in the league. Backstrom is -19 BTW, so it isn't an ovie thing. Washington has a terrible backend other than Carlson.

Now if one wants to ralk about how ovie is used, that is a worth while debate. he is told to find a good shooting spot and stay there. To be a force in the offensive zone. That is what he does.

Some of us are old enough remember when Stevie Y didn't play D either. He was told to score and did. it wasn't until Bowman
threatened to trade him that the captain learned to play D.


This is what makes Datsyuk so special amongst Russian forwards, his ability to play both ends of the ice is second to none.  It will take a special kind of Russian in the NHL to be Captain and lead his team to a Stanley Cup.  Dats is really the only one that could do it, we saw his level of play at the Olympics on one leg, best player on the Russian bench. 


Ovie is going to need to go through a transformation as you pointed out like Stevie Y did if he wants to get to the promised land.

#2504208 Legwand to Detroit for Eaves, Jarnkrok + cond 3rd/2nd

Posted by LAWings on 31 March 2014 - 05:46 PM




And seriously, where on earth was he going to play? with what ice time? Couldn't have seen him get more than 7-8 minutes a night. I doubt he'd have 5 points in 6 games with half the amount of ice time


I can think of three roster spots they could have tried him in for at least a few games:


1. Luke Glendending, has a total of ZERO goals in 49 games... on pace for longest goalest streak in Wings history

2. Andersson - with 17 pts in 63 games and a -11, he's not really tearing it up

3. Anywhere else, we've had enough injuries, our 4th line has been a revolving whorehouse of players, Miller, Bertuzzi, Emmerton...anyone can sit.


again, just sayin, there were options to at least look under the hood in some NHL games, look at all the other kids that got called up this year and were sent back down...

Here's a link to a .gif of Legwand's butt-end penalty for those who didn't see




When they showed this from the back angle during the game it looked like Malkin looked at the ref first then collapsed 'in pain'.  I'm sure that hurts getting drilled in the thigh like that, and obviously a penalty, but it looked a little embellished too.

Maybe stop antagonizing Wings fans on a Wings board with the leafs>wings foolishness then?

Yeah dude, go troll Pierre McGuire's twitter account.  You both can talk about how powerful Crosby's legs are.
