#2556292 12/12 GDT : Panthers 3 at Red Wings 2 (SO)

Posted by GoWings1905 on 12 December 2014 - 10:24 PM

Can we please trade Howard for a bag of pucks? hell a roll of tape would do it.


That would be a genius move to trade a goalie with a 2.15 GAA and .918 save percentage. I know he is bad in the shootout, but my goodness, what an extreme overreaction.

How many goals have we scored? Last two games were 1 for 5.


3 for 16 now, so equally as awful as Howard.

What?!!! You're missing a Wings game for a stupid trivial little wedding rehearsal. What's wrong with you???
 
:lol: :lol:
 
Congrats.


Right? I try explaining to her the importance of me seeing ALL Wings games but apparently "our wedding is more important". Sounds ridiculous.

Thanks!

Don't wedding rehearsals only really matter for the bride, groom, maid of honor, and best man?  The key is to be the third in line, and then just follow the guy in front of you, stand there, and look handsome.  You really don't have to do anything else. 
 
EDIT:  Ahh, he is the groom.  I guess you sorta have to be there then.  Be sure to take your smart phone though.  I mean, don't wedding reherseals only really matter to the bride and her mom anyway?


Oh, you can bet I'll be sneaking looks at LGW.

Let's Go wings.
Hey! Congratulations man!


Thank you.


#2555983 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by krsmith17 on 12 December 2014 - 01:36 PM

Oooh so that's how it works... That's why there are so many negative posters on here... I get it now...

 

Always look at the glass half empty so that there are no let downs, just pleasant surprises... Gotcha.

Posted by kipwinger on 12 December 2014 - 01:38 PM

Better than dreaming about him reupping here and then be disappointed when he signs with a contender. With this strategy I can only be positive surprised as it was the case with Pasha

 

Are you saying that you intentionally believe unlikely things, so that when they don't happen you're happy about the surprise? 

 

Because it sounds like you are. 

 

In which case I wonder, why stop there?  You could believe a whole host of horrible (and unlikely) things and then celebrate your good luck when they don't happen.  Here's a couple...

 

1.  I'm going to get eaten by a shark tomorrow.

2.  Next Thursday my house will be poisoned by radon. 

3.  Racoons will abscond with my cat.

4.  This year, I really will get a lump of coal for Christmas.

5.  I'm probably already possessed by Satan (or perhaps some lesser imp). 




#2555923 More Mantha stuff.....

Posted by krsmith17 on 12 December 2014 - 06:55 AM

It's likely Mantha probably did say something like this, I've heard many of his interviews and it does sound like something he would say. However, I don't really get the point of this thread... It could have easily been added to the already existing Mantha thread, and without being able to provide a source, it makes even less sense to post.

 

Anyhow, Mantha should start the season in Detroit, if he starts in Grand Rapids, Ken Holland is a moron. He is that good, he definitely doesn't need time to adjust in the minor league...... :ninja:

*sigh* as long as it doesn't come from the insiders all these  rumors are just that rumors.

 

The media seems to have a hard time getting a simple fact:

Babcock won't negotiate during the season, period.

 

I'm already prepared to see him coaching Crosby & Co. next year

 

No doubt.  Stupid suck ass media.  All they do is speculate and fear monger.  Not the kind of thing frankgrimes is into.  Nope.  No way.  Errr....wait

#2555728 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

How about we score MORE THAN ONE FREAKING GOAL. Then we don't have to worry about it.

LGW !

 

I remember watching him play when I was a kid.  To this day he's still the best athlete I've ever seen.

#2555077 Ben Bishop and Darren Pang swap goalie pads

Posted by F.Michael on 09 December 2014 - 11:58 AM

Panger in Bishop's gear would've been the norm back in the late 90's thru mid 2000's.




#2555110 Theoretical "Expansion Draft" implications - Who to protect?

Posted by DSM on 09 December 2014 - 03:38 PM

If we lose Mrazek, Helm, Ericsson, or Abdlekader  because that "Count Von Count meets Gollum" lookalike f****** troll want to put a rink beside a blackjack table, I'm going postal.
 
That being said, I'd go with
 
2-3-7
 
and do exactly what you did except I'd protect either Helm or Abdlekader over Weiss.

That's assuming they can leave Weiss unprotected. I left Abdelkader and Helm unprotected since they are both UFA'S in 2016. I'm assuming that the expansion team would pass over them in favor of something more long term, or take one but then send them back in exchange for something more fruitful (Ala Doug Brown for Petr Sykora after the '98 expansion draft).

Mom and I were in Toronto visiting relatives. I was 12. We had no tickets to the Leafs game but someone knew someone that worked at Maple Leaf Gardens. They brought us in the back door used to access the zamboni bay and took us through a bunch of tunnels and stairwells to find and usher, who then proceeded to find us season ticket seats that they knew were going unclaimed for the evening.

 

It was a crappy game (vs Rangers) with no star power and I've always hated the Leafs. But man, that place was awesome.

Neat!

 

Was never there for a game (did see a few games at the ACC)...The old MLG reminded me of a cathedral...A special place.

Funny you mention that, when I was at the old maple leaf gardens early 90's the guy working the souvenir stand gave me and my friend the previous year's Toronto Maple Leaf year book. My Friends dad saw some players leaving down a roped off hall way. He told us to ignore rope and get an autograph. The usher went to stop us then said "OK get one and come right back". I got Gary Leeman's autograph. Something we will not see in today's world.
