#2566782 1/29 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Lightning 5

Posted by LeftWinger on 29 January 2015 - 05:31 PM

It would be nice to get a win tonight (and Saturday) but in reality, its only Jan/Feb and I am more looking forward to seeing how they play against these two tops teams.  I would love wins, but as long as the Wings compete hard and show they are capable of beating these teams, I will come away feeling very good.  I don't think "messages" need to be sent now by winning or losing, but by playing best against best.  The Wings are good enough to be here and hopefully Tampa (and Isles) are thinking the same thing, that this is a great measuring cup game, win or lose.

 

That said, Go Wings!  Too bad Pulk's isn't up....

#2566207 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 January 2015 - 06:46 PM

Mantha - Larkin - Pulkkinen

Tatar - Sheahan - Nyquist

 

 

 

In 4-5 years, who wouldn't want to have that as a top 6?

 

I know I am all about making trades for no reason :ninja:  but honestly, lets upgrade through attrition. Unless something outrageous falls into our lap I like the direction the team is going from within... (of course if that top puck moving defenseman becomes available...then....aw crap! Back to indecision!!!!)




#2566172 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 January 2015 - 03:41 PM

Larkin has just scored17 points in the last 7 Michigan games.  He is only 18, not saying he is going to be a scoring machine, but with a scoring machine like Mantha (projected) on his wing, he could be a setup machine...

 

 

Yzerman/Fedorov - Dastyuk/Zetterberg- Larkin/Mantha.

 

 

Yes, I went there.  No way can EITHER of these two be traded.  I would HATE to have to make a choice like that, one or the other....UGH!

I prefer it being North vs. South.




#2565909 Greatest US-born NHLer of all time?

Posted by LeftWinger on 25 January 2015 - 01:44 PM

Modano?
LeClair?
Leetch?
Chelios?

Roenick?
Mark Howe?
Other?

 

I'm leaning towards Chelios myself. Leader, hard-nosed gamer, great guy in the room and a seemingly inexhaustible will to win.

 

In this order:

 

Chelios, Modano, Hull, Roenick.  Kane will surpass Roenick by time his career is over, but will still be behind Chelios, Modano and Hull.  I am not saying that Kane won't finish with more points than Modo, but for a long time Modo played with some inept Minnesota teams, Kane has had a an all star team for pretty much his entire career.  I love JR, but once he got traded, he wasn't quite as dominant as he was in Chicago.  The same would happen for Kane, I am afraid, so he better hope he never gets traded. Also I would like to add that I think Kane is better than any of the other mentioned US born players...and no Lafontaine is does not belong on that list, neither does Carson.

 

Chelios

Modano

Hull

Roenick

...with Kane coming up fast.

Don't worry, Minnesota won't make the playoffs.

...but, but, They were supposed to have 3 Cups by now, after they got the Olsen twins...where's Centcougar?

I didn't get a response (typical) from my first tweet to that Laplanta guy, but I just sent him this:

 

@bran32shan @AnthonyLaPanta @FollowThePuck There the REAL Hockeytown gave you a loser point. Good luck making it out of the cellar.

Someone with twitter should respond to that. Any takers? 

@bran32shan @AnthonyLaPanta @FollowThePuck Ya, but our Hockeytown doesn't close the first week of April. Oh wait, you're out now.

 

...you're welcome!

Been playing quite well without Franzen

 

                :withstupid:

don't need him and his head problems. Let him sit LTIR for the rest of the season to get his issues taken care of and see if he can come back next year ready...if not, then retire.

hey Mary Kate Suter, how you liking living with your in-laws? You sure are missing out on something special here! But you always have those Sunday night yatzee games.




#2564965 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by LeftWinger on 20 January 2015 - 06:41 PM

I'm kind of bothered by the fact that Jurco already having back troubles.
Not enough to give up on him yet, but its a little worrying.

I agree, but if they gave up early on oft injured youngsters, Kronner would've been gone a long time ago.

I am still racking my brain on the imposter one! While we try to figure that one out, chew on this one:

#2564264 Wings great Gordie Howe resting after 'serious stroke'

Posted by LeftWinger on 18 January 2015 - 07:04 PM

I agree with that too! It's the same idea, there is no reason anyone should interfere with anyone else's rights to free choice.  If I want to have stem cells injected in my body to save my life from certain death, its my choice.  I am not playing God, I just want to live a long healthy life.  Freedom of Choice, I support it, I just wish that we really had it here! Thank Goodness Gordie was able to go somewhere and get this done....on a funny note, it makes you wonder if indeed Andy Kaufman is alive and well.
