#2254427 Anyone Ever Notice This?

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 February 2012 - 05:45 PM

At one time he was the guy that was just plain hard to hit. Guys would take a run at him and end up hurting them self (like Pronger did) I don't know if he still has some of that elusiveness left in him or its just plain respect.

Are you talking about the Yzerman and Pronger incident? If so you do know that Yzerman undercut Pronger and intentionally hurt Pronger right? At least that is what our buddy cprice says...anyhow...

If there was an incident that involved Pronger and Lidstrom then I apologize, but that incident has slipped out of my head (as have many things as I age.) :lol:


#2254423 Will there be an impact trade by the wings?

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 February 2012 - 05:40 PM

I still want to see Morrow & Nabokov here for the playoffs...THEN sign Parise and Suter in the offseason. I know it will cost us roster player to get Morrow, but I am not too concerned about that since it won't cost us anyone who is above Hudler on the pecking order. If we could somehow acquire him without losing a roster player then great. That is my hope, but like most are saying, Holland is only gonna get someone if it helps the team. I hope he does.


#2254411 How WC tickets will be sold

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 February 2012 - 05:10 PM

The tix should be open to ALL hockey fans. Just block off the exact same amount for Wings fans and Leafs fans, then the rest are open to all. 36,000 for Wings all in one part of the Stadium, 36,000 for Leafs in a different part of the Stadium and 38,000 for general NHL fans who want to attend. When you order, you are asked which team or neither? Then you are given the choice of certain sections for that team only. That way we have a side with Wings fans and side with Leafs fans, then the ends are filled with random fans. (certainly of which can be Wings and Leafs fans.) Imagine the view from the blimp with all Red on one side of the field and all Blue on the other?

Would they be able to sell them at the premium Leafs fans will pay? This won't just be tickets at regular NHL prices, there will be a significant mark-up.

:blink:

So....what you are saying is that Leafs fans are more well-to-do than Red Wings fans?


Just because there will be a mark-up doesn't mean Leafs fans are the only ones who can afford it...I would say 99.999999999% of Wings fans do not live in the City and as a matter of fact, a ton of them live in Oakland County which is one of the wealthiest counties in the Nation....

Clutch better show up tonight...he better dominate. We need our scorers to score, Clutch, The Worm are on the hotstove tonight!


#2252899 Another crybaby

Avoiding the mention of Jiri Hudler’s name, or the fact the Detroit Red Wing worm smashed Sharp’s wrist with a vicious slash


:hysterical: This guy has never even watched Hudler play! Huder? Visious? Oh that hurts, stop I am laughing so hard!

I do like the name Worm for Jiri though! I think if a worm had a face, it would be Jiri's! (quick someone photoshop it!)

:hysterical: at the CBC broadcast saying Kronwall got 4 minutes for roughing and that he elbowed Hemsky in the head...were they watching the same game?

#2251864 Howard has broken finger, Joey Mac recalled

Posted by LeftWinger on 03 February 2012 - 01:38 PM

Time to acquire Nabokov. Ya, this may be a minor inury, but if something happens in April, we wont win with Conklin/MacDonald.


#2251427 Your All-Favorites Red Wing Team?

Posted by LeftWinger on 02 February 2012 - 08:58 PM

Put together your own all-Red Wings team. The best guys that you've actually ever seen on the ice out there.

Me (I was born in 1987):

Shannahan-Datsyuk-Fedorov
Zetterberg Sheppard-Yzerman-Hossa
Clark Robitaille-Larionov-Hull
Probert Kozlov-Primeau Lapointe-McCarty Brown
Franzen Gallant

Lidstrom-Konstantinov
Coffey-Chelios
Kronwall Fetisov-Murphy
Rafalski Larson

Hasek
Vernon Osgood
Howard

Bowman
Demers

Those are my changes to your already great lineup! I also need to mention Adam Oates and Adam Graves, both of whom played here before their prime, but I would have loved to have on this team for their career!
