#2459716 12/1 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Senators 2, Alfredsson scores ENG

Posted by rick zombo on 01 December 2013 - 06:19 PM

Ottawa has a very physical D. Having trouble cycling down low. 

 

Also, I guess Ottawa didn’t commit even one penalty-worthy offence that period? Nah.

How do you pronounce... that?

 

Like LaFrog. Except Roy.

 

La-F-roy-g

I'm thankful the Wings made my driving 25 miles one way to pick up a fresh bottle of the Macallan even more worthwhile. BoS, do you find a good game by the Wings improves the taste of a fine scotch?

 

Make it Laphroaig, Lagavulin, or Talisker, and I’m with you  ;)

Remember when we were awesome and we'd win like 8 in a row then get blown out by some s***ty team like the Islanders? WE'RE THAT TEAM!

 

Not quite, but LOL just the same.

Good job the Smith’s aren’t American. Tomorrow’s turkey dinner would be awwwwwkwarrrd.

Man. I’m starting to love me some Smith. The game he got hurt = fight.  Then he fights Neil. Now he gives it to the Rat and mixes it up with Chara.

 

*Thumbs up*




#2458498 Looking for advice/attending a Wings home game

Posted by rick zombo on 27 November 2013 - 11:46 AM

 I almost forgot to tell you...there is no pair of ear plugs in the world that can drown out Karen Newman's caterwauling.  Be warned.  I'm honestly surprised the ASPCA hasn't got her for animal cruelty when she "sings".  As my housemate says, she must have incriminating photos of someone.

 

Okay, I performed my public service for today.

 

My dad is 67 years old, and he has a massive crush on Karen. Seeing her live will be a thrill for him. LOL

 

She has gone down hill IMO. Love is blind, I guess :)




#2458486 Datsyuk concussion: To Return Tuesday

Posted by rick zombo on 27 November 2013 - 11:24 AM

Silver lining time:

 

Leave him out until next week and get more out of the secondary scoreres. They'll absolutely have to pick up their game. Weiss, Alfredssonn, Mule, Helm, Nyquist, Tatar.

 

Best case scenario is that this team finds it's scoring legs without Pavel, and are that much better when he comes back.




#2458480 Ericsson re-signed 6-yrs $4.25 mill AAV

Posted by rick zombo on 27 November 2013 - 11:10 AM

I wished I could be picked last for something, where 290 other people get picked first, and then eventually turn that into a 25.5M pay day.

 

Nice job Big Rig!!




#2458438 I'd like to talk about this off-season/next season

Posted by rick zombo on 27 November 2013 - 01:21 AM

The thing is. There's too many prospects that have to battle for too few positions. Holland will continue to let them all max out in GRs until they can no longer clear waivers. Exactly like he did with Smith, Tatar, and Nyquist (basically).

Hoping to see Mantha, Jurco, Oullett, Sproul, Jarnkrok, or Mrazek before they have played in GRs for basically 3 years each, would be be a pipe-dream I think. Unfortunately.

The Wings will do well next year to find room for Sheahan, Ferraro, Almquist, and (I think) Callahan.


#2458289 Pre-game discussion 11/27 Bruins: Dats out. Gus in.

Posted by rick zombo on 26 November 2013 - 01:20 PM

I'm hoping this is just precautionary league protocol stuff like Holland is saying and not something seriously long-term. I keep thinking back to how the Hedman and Steckel hits on Crosby looked at the time.

 

I'm also wishing really bad things on Cowen. Not very classy I know. But f*** him. The big slow-footed dummy couldn't keep up with Datsyuk and instead of falling down like Couture, decided an elbow to the face was a good idea.




#2458285 Looking for advice/attending a Wings home game

Posted by rick zombo on 26 November 2013 - 01:15 PM

Hey everyone,

 

Long-time LGWer here.

 

I'm taking my dad and brother to the Joe March 6th and 7th. This will be our first ever Wings home game. We're making the journey from the east coast of Canada so it's a biggish sort of deal.

 

I've been doing a s***-load of research in planning for this trip.

 

I just thought, since I have great respect for a lot of you, if anyone had any suggestions based on personal experience about the following:

 

1. Where to stay: I'm looking at Greektown Casino, Holiday Inn Express, Westin Book, and Doubletree Lafayette.

 

2. Best pre-game and post-game hangs for food and beer that have easy flow and access to the people movers.

 

I have read all there is to read on Trip Advisor, etc. But I want to hear what the LGWs hardcore locals had to say.

 

Pretty sure I have the rest covered but any other tourist tips, dos and don't, etc would be aprreciated.

 

I'll pay you back in advice if any of you are ever planning to travel to Atlantic Canada (which is beautiful, by the way) ;)

 

Mods, feel free to move this to where ever it should be.

 

Thanks all!!

+ my new most hated team of punk dix lost 4-1 to Carolina. Let the good times roll.

Don't think Bert will be asked back. Only free agent of ours who will be back is Ericsson.


Wanna bet?
