Hey, hey, hey, hey... Right now this board sounds like the way Crosby looks like when he talks to referees.

#2125879 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by xtrememachine1 on 04 March 2011 - 07:52 AM

The playoffs are a completely different game. Nothing we've seen this season can give us an idea of how good or bad somebody will be in the playoffs. Everyone plays better defensively, Howard is very capable of just getting on a hot streak like he did last year and dominating. Philly is really good and most likely going to take the East, but Boucher and Bobrovosky have little to no playoff experience. I wouldn't be surprised to see them get bounced. Vancouver hasn't shown anything in the playoffs yet. I'll worry about them more when they get past the 2nd round.

I like the Wings chances this year to win it all. Nobody has more depth or experience. We have the best coach and the better players. Instead of focusing on what we don't have, focus on what we DO have.

...best of luck to Shawn Burr in fighting this horrible disease. It would be way too soon losing another Wing. I just want the great Detroit fans to know we are thinking about Mr. Burr and praying for a speedy recovery. God bless.

#2116787 New forum skin now live!

Posted by Matt on 15 February 2011 - 01:45 AM

Shortly after midnight I pushed the new LetsGoWings.com Forums template live. This updated includes updates across the board, from functionality to new features for some member groups. If you're experiencing any problems try refreshing/clearing your browser's cache. If you still experience issues please contact me via PM with your issue, a screenshot (if you can), and the browser type/version you're using.

There'll likely be some minor tinkering as the template is put through its paces leading up to Thursday's game against the Lightning, so feel free to leave some feedback!

(a quick note: the extra space up at the top in the white area is for the drop-down menu for the main portions of the site. since that is still a work in progress it's currently disabled, but the placeholder is there.)

#2113074 Forsberg Joins Avalanche

Posted by dat's sick on 08 February 2011 - 02:39 PM

Dude has been washed up for years and is making one last cash / glory grab.

Washed up? Dude has been dominating everytime he's set his f***ed up feet on the ice in the SEL the last couple of years. Last time he was in the NHL he almost singlehandedly got the Avs into the playoffs and was a big part of them getting to the 2nd round. In the Olympics 2010 he was one of very few bright spots in the game where Sweden was eliminated against Slovakia.

Cash grab? He's been playing for FREE for Modo in the SEL. And by FREE, I mean as in getting payed NO MONEY. Not only a little bit of money. NO. MONEY. Now he has signed af****** 1 million dollar contract. Guess what, I'm sure he'd play for zero dollars if it was allowed. If this was about money he probably would have saved himself about 10 operations on his foot and just signed for a KHL team or something.

He is doing this for himself. Because he loves to play hockey. And maybe a little bit to prove to people like you that he ISN'T washed up and that he still has hockey in him.

Can tell Vs. has fired a bunch of people, they just had a typo on the overlay there. "Matt Cooke a dirty player?", I don't really know how they managed to typo a question mark in place of a period though :ph34r:

#2111962 Forsberg Joins Avalanche

Posted by Carman on 07 February 2011 - 05:16 PM

People dwell on this "diving" thing too much. It's up for the officials to enforce the rule, not the players to have some 100% commitment to the "code".

The NHL is about winning, the more you win, the more you get paid. If it helps your team win, you are going to do it. Do I like it? No. But it's not a perfect world where everything is tied up in the a nice bow. If you don't like diving, put the accountability on the refs and the league for not enforcing it enough. If they gave out penalties for everything that looked like a dive, sooner or later players will stop diving.

Forsberg is just an absolutely amazing talent, and missing out on that entertainment because you hate him for "diving" is remarkably sad to me. He didn't choose to get injured and miss out on finishing his career on his own terms. He's not a 45 year old guy coming back out of no-where, he didn't even officially retire for crying out loud :lol: .

Best of luck to Forsberg and may I witness another awe-inspiring plays before he finally cuts his fantastic career tragically short.
