#2038295 9/29 Pre-season GDT: Red Wings at New York Rangers

Posted by sputman on 29 September 2010 - 08:26 PM

I look at him with one cup. The first two he played only 3 playoff games all in 97.

the fact that dandenault is even getting mentioned in new york is noteworthy.

Wow. Another Mule scare.

mule is the china shop, and the other 11 players are the bulls.

Yeah I had to watch the stream on Sunday because I was at the library studying and I couldn't help but notice that they were very unbiased and gave a lot of praise to the Wings. :clap:

yeah these guys are ace. not as entertaining as mick and kenny but just as fair.

#2036120 Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

23 Brett Lebda

I wore 22 for the last five years in Detroit. Before that, in college, I wore 13. So I got here and (Beauchemin) had 22. I just decided to put 22 and 13 together and take 23, so it kind of just fell in place. I try to find significance in it. Itís something you carry with your name on the back of your jersey.

22 + 13 = 23

lebDUH math.

#2033067 Babcock's Take

Posted by sputman on 13 September 2010 - 03:24 PM

he hasn't been here that long but it's hard to imagine the red wings being coached by anybody other than mike babcock, and i wouldn't pick anybody else over him.

i don't know how you could improve on the concept of his old helmet, paying tribute to both motown with the car and gauges, and the wing's legends as the gauge numbers. i just think that's brilliant.

you'd think 3 million dollars could buy something better than a single wide with wood paneling..

#2025757 2000-2003 NJ Devils

Posted by sputman on 13 August 2010 - 08:25 AM

so as i'm watching game 7 of the 2003 cup I started thinking about the similarities between the 2000-2003 Devils and the 2008-2011 Wings are.

NJ 2000:Wins cup in 6 games
NJ 2001:Lost game 7 in finals after having 3-2 lead in series
NJ 2002:First round loss
NJ 2003:Won cup in 7 games

DET 2008:Wins cup in 6 games
DET 2009:Lost game 7 in finals after having 3-2 lead in series
DET 2010:Second round loss
DET 2011:?

with the exception of the game 7's(NJ road, DET home) and which round the teams lost after the game 7 loss they are the same results.

Is this foreshadowing or just a coincidence?

that would be a coincidence. unless it gives you hope then, yeah, foreshadowing. definitely foreshadowing.

#2025145 Wings' Goaltending Situation

Posted by sputman on 11 August 2010 - 12:14 PM

he's so rusty that he lets in a goal to an enforcer 14 seconds into the game.

that happened a few times last year, didn't it? boy it seemed like it did.

Guys crash the crease when they know there are zero consequences for doing so

#2016761 Kovalchuk Re-Signs with Devils

Posted by sputman on 19 July 2010 - 12:24 PM

well we've got the lesser talented of the miller brothers on our team, maybe we should give one of ilya's bros fred or george a chance? i'm sure they'd come cheap.
