1 failed experiment down, 2 to go.

I'm looking at you Nashville and Phoenix.

#2117502 Would you rather...?

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 16 February 2011 - 09:57 PM

Guess i'm not a xenophobe....I don't get the French-Canadian coach thing...


Not really about xenophobia. More about how there are no successful ones.

I've never been called a xenophobe, but the truth is I'm not. I honestly just feel that America is the best country and all the other countries aren't as good. That used to be called 'patriotism'.

Fedorov carried Yzerman.


#2002280 Annoying Fan Stories

After watching the World Cup the past week or so I have found myself hating that vuvuzela. This GIF illustrates my hate:

Has anyone ever gone to a game (most likely away) and seen so many people engaging in such an idiotic display of pride for their team? The TooToo train whistle immediately jumps to mind. Has anyone ever experienced something that goes over their head and ruins your experience of the game?


#1997328 Toews: Most undeserving Conn Smyth winner in history?

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 10 June 2010 - 12:23 AM

Byfuglien was better than Toews during the entire run.


#1991516 CBC's Hotstove: Lidstrom to determine future within 7 days

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 30 May 2010 - 05:37 PM

Lidstrom will not make less than 7 million dollars. He will not be paid less than any player on the team. That is how Holland rolls.


#1989985 Is Tampa Bay your second favorite team now?

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 26 May 2010 - 12:42 PM

Washington. I hope TB fails and Stevie comes home.


#1989837 Steve Yzerman named TB's new GM

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 26 May 2010 - 05:18 AM

May Tampa go 0-82 until Ken Holland retires.


#1984924 Canucks’ Mitchell criticizes head shot policy

Committee of former players would fix this. 5 guys (2 forwards, 2 d-men, 1 goalie) review the plays and hand out decisions.


#1979760 Possibility that Williams plays Game 5

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 08 May 2010 - 07:57 AM

Here's my thinking.

Lose 3 games. No Ritola.

Win game with Ritola in.

Play with Ritola in.

When certain guys are in the team plays different. You get different looks and you play a different game because it affects who you get passes from and who you pass to. You play a different game when Datsyuk is your center as opposed to Draper or Helm.

With Ritola there is more play along the boards on his line, with him doing it there is another player open waiting for a pass or covering a man who would otherwise be the guy playing along the boards with Williams just standing around waiting for the puck.

If he is back what do you think the lines will be?


Come on, come on... TAKE THE BAIT!!! LET'S GET DRUNK!!!


#1977206 Free Agent Wish List

Posted by Wings_Dynasty on 06 May 2010 - 01:15 AM

I'm as real as could be. Cap hit is ridiculous for sure. I have never seen a player get moved off the puck as bad as him. Maybe Leino, but we ditched him. I don't think Rafalski has heard of a gym because he obviously never uses it. He's scared to get loose pucks and gets blown by or walked around every game. His decision making ability is just gone. He seems so indecisive with the puck unless he has no one within 40 feet of him.

I don't like how he plays and I have really had it with the guy.


His defense on the OT goal was one of the worst displays I have ever seen in the playoffs. Ericsson would have done a better job. He at least knows that "Hey, I'm 6'5", I bet if I lay down on the ice or at least put my stick down I would be in the way of a potential pass."

Waving your glove at it? :angry:

No matter what happens in the playoffs, I see Detroit making some changes. I wanted to see what people thought would be actual, possible signings they might pursue and also see what you would try to do if you were Ken Holland.

Try to be realistic with what you would do. I know that it's possible to trade Datsyuk and Lidstrom for Crosby in NHL10, but it just won't happen in real life.

Possible: I can see the Wings pursuing depth guys from high cap teams that didn't make the grade this season. I know with the Lightning's new leadership that they might make some changes and usually the Wings try not to send their players to the West. I could see someone like Ohlund or Meszaros coming in to play on the 3rd pairing with Lilja (if he's here) and switching off with Kindl if he's not doing to well. I would like to see Malone come over here to play on the second line.

Wish List: Guys like Lucic or Byfuglien would look real good on the third line. I would also like to see an enforcer with talent, a Gratton or Neil type guy, someone who can hit/score odd goals as well as punch people in the face well.
