#2572345 Teemu Pulkkinen called back up

Posted by kipwinger on 18 February 2015 - 10:53 PM

You're absolutely right Kip, I'm not sure why I'm surprised though, you always are... I am the single Red Wings fan that would love to have a right handed sniper. There is no other Red Wings fans that would love to have a right handed sniper, nor would Red Wings management, or the coaching staff. All left handed shots throughout the lineup is clearly the way to go. I apologize for my ignorance...

 

Oh no, your last resort is to accuse me of never admitting when I'm wrong?  What about those two times I admitted I was wrong...just today? Once when I was talking to you...and told you that you were right? 

 

Once here when I was talking to you about Jurco:  http://www.letsgowin...r-teemu/page-11

 

"You're right about that.  He could have used the seasoning.  I legitimately thought, after last year, that he was ready.  But I was wrong on that.  He definitely could have used more time to hone his power forward game down there."

 

And once here when I was talking about Helm and Abby:  http://www.letsgowin...e-thread/page-6

 

"Agreed.  I'd prefer to get him out of the top six, but I certainly don't want him off the team at this point.  Admittedly, I was singing a different tune at the start of the season but I was wrong about that.  He and Abby have been a big part of this team's success, both because of their own production and because of their ability to battle and retrieve pucks for the skill guys."

 

 

I seriously defy you to find ANYONE else on LGW who has admitted being wrong even a single time in the last two months, and I did it twice today. 

 

But in the mean time, you should probably just stop.  This is all starting to look like sour grapes bud. You said a wrong thing, it's ok.  When you get called on it next time just say "yeah, that was probably hyperbole", or "yeah, I guess they were specifically talking about a right shot defenseman".  It's ok.  Being wrong isn't the end of the world.  Nobody expects you to be right all the time.  And if you just admit you were full of it to begin with, you wouldn't have to say things like "All left handed shots throughout the lineup is clearly the way to go. I apologize for my ignorance...".  Which is frankly, beneath you. 

 

Take it from me, the guy who can (demonstrably) admit when I'm wrong. 

 

I want you to be a better you.  It's the Kip effect.

Howard earned that. I'm gonna go buy a lottery ticket.

 

Good win, about to plug in the final in the GDT title.

We're getting outworked pretty badly.  Don't deserve many powerplays tonight.  


Deserve or not, if there a penalty you have to call it..


#2571833 Do we need to add grit?

Posted by kipwinger on 18 February 2015 - 07:40 PM

I'm against anything that makes us slower.  Speed is our friend.  Guys like Grossman and Neil are only going to slow us down.  All things being equal, I'll take a tougher guy over a weaker one.  But all things have to be equal (or close to equal).

Literally watching the French broadcast so I don't have to listen to Edzo.

I don't speak French.

Serious question. Will everyone be happier that we make the playoffs and then get destroyed in the first round than finishing low and getting a good pick along with the start of a rebuild?


Good god haha really? Haha no... You serious? Haha nah your joking with all of this.


#2571593 Getzlaf calls Ovechkin a diver, O says "I have hair"

Posted by kipwinger on 17 February 2015 - 09:44 PM

Getzlaf's a jackass.  I watched that game.  The slash he calls Ovie out on was DEFINITELY a slash, right on his hands, and Ovie didn't react much at all.  He shook his hand, and pulled his glove off to look at it, but that's normal.  He didn't throw his hand up, or act like he'd been chopped down.  Then again, we are talking about the guy who did this when he was losing to Detroit so maybe Ovie's on to something.

#2570479 What should we do with the Monster?

Posted by DickieDunn on 14 February 2015 - 01:48 AM

Gustavsson might get a 6th rounder if they're lucky. Send the kid down now and in the playoffs they can bring him up if GR gets knocked out or Howard gets hurt.


#2570314 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by kipwinger on 12 February 2015 - 03:12 PM

 

You baited him pretty good, but his response was pretty juvenile and unprofessional.

 

Hey man, if you're going to fancy yourself a well spring of public information you'd better be prepared for the sting of public scrutiny.  I issue federal government policy statements to the public for a living.  You can imagine the kind of lunatics I deal with.  I have no sympathy for people who don't check facts before disseminating "information".

Woah guys...this is clearly detracting from the deep Brendan Smith conversation...




#2570270 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by kipwinger on 12 February 2015 - 12:13 PM

 

Yeah, I got that impression too.

 

But I barely believe that this deal was even in place. So I'm certainly not going to trust this source's description of Holland's reaction/handling of the offer. Plus, as if they're going to report that Holland "laughed" Murray off the phone. As if he'd even do that. He's a professional, not a 12 year old or a member of LGWs. :lol:

 

 

I would laugh that offer off the phone...because I'm both.
