#2273485 3/24 GDT : Hurricanes 4 at Red Wings 5

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 March 2012 - 07:08 PM

:lol: at that neg! "It'll turn around when Dats and Lids are back" that's all we heard and if anyone tried to argue it, they got negged. Well, Lids and Dats are back.....what now? Negg, Negg, Negg.... Oh wait, it's Lids first game back, just wait until the playoffs....excuses excuses excuses....Holland missed the boat on deadline day....odds are he won't make a change come July either...he'll just keep these same garbage players.

I rarely go to games but always watch at home. However, this time I bought tickets. I'm taking my parents and my 84 year old grandfather down for a tour of where I work downtown, then to get a Coney, then for a trip on the People Mugger over to the Joe.

Win this one for my grandpa! He's been having a tough time with the recent passing of my grandmother, so he needs this W!

uh....aren't the Wings IN Carolina tonight? If so, I hope you got a receipt for those tickets....

#2273030 So who could the Red Wings get in the offseason?

Looking ahead to the off season. Let's just say for shig's and gittles, Holland trades is able to acquire Suter, Parise and Semin. Lidstrom re-tires, Hudler walks, Holmstrom re-tires and he re-signs Helm and Abby and Quincey to long term deals. Your roster may look something like this:

Franzen Datsyuk Semin
Filpplua Zetterberg Parise
Mursak Helm Bertuzzi
Eaves Abby Miller

Suter White
Kronwall Quincey
Smith Ericsson

fast forward to 2013 and if Weber comes knocking, just replace White with Weber or re-sign White and ditch Ericsson if he hasn't gotten any better...

I like it. *SMACK!* Now I wake up from that dream, but that would for sure be a better roster than they have now...and it would be doable.

edit: Also you'll notice Cleary is gone...traded for a pick. If not, then Make Mursak the 13th FWD and put Cleary on the third line...Kindl is 7th D of course, unless Dekeyser gets signed and gets that nod.

Holy Juckf****** Pott!

Well Juckf****** Pott! It never ends!

Like I said..........get rid of Holland. Once the season ticket holders start complaining and cancelling.........he'll be gone and hopefully take Babcock with 'em. One of worst inspirational motivators in professional sports.

Bring in Larionov as Head Coach...Fetisov as an assistant!

Juckf****** Pott? :blink:

I think I am gonna use that one the next time I win something good!

"Is that triple 7's? I just hit the Juckf****** Pott!"

I just may have to make a trip the the Urban Dictionary and add this one!

Juckf****** Pott - The winning of the mother load. To win something beyond explanation. To win a major award. "It's a major award! I hit the Juckf****** Pott! Let's celebrate Ma!"

Loss is a loss AGAIN. :thumbdown:

And to be honest all the negativity happens when teams lose especially with the way the Wings have been playing now injuries or not. And screw all the excuses of not having Dats or Lids. There will come a time when we won't have either of those players in our lineup.

I wouldn't call it a stretch but what are the chances of us not making the playoffs cause well everyone below us keeps winning minus us. I don't see us realistically losing the rest of the way out but hot damn.


lol. Yeah right

This is what scares me...everyone who made fun of me a negged me last month is seeing reality. No, no one could have predicted this, but I think everyone refused to see how fast St. Louis and Nashville were gaining, and all it took was one loss at home after the streak to knock them off their "roll" and we are now seeing this team for all it's weaknesses. The powerplay is going to be the death of them. We can all look back and say shoulda coulda woulda, but fact is, NOTHING was addressed when it needed to be addressed. Is Holland a better hockey mind than most of us? Of course, but I wasn't the only one saying that the "Old Franzen" was not going to show up and Holland relied upon certain players to step it up, pick it up and carry this team enough to NOT make a deal at the deadline. Right now and in the near future, he may be regretting that...

#2270661 Call the team out

Posted by LeftWinger on 15 March 2012 - 06:55 PM

Once again, a user neggs and is too yellow to debate!

Anyhow, Calling Out now will be useless....change is needed if the players don't show up come playoffs. There are "certain" players who take most nights off. They score in bunches and are very VERY inconsistent. If this team gets eliminated in the first round. Anyone not named Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Smith, Howard, Helm, Abdelkader and Kronwall should be "available." Trade the entire team? No, but no serious offer will be unheard. Unfortunately the guys I listed will probably be the only ones asked about....

#2270259 Call the team out

Posted by LeftWinger on 14 March 2012 - 07:36 PM

The time for calling out was the trade deadline...it's too late to call out. He already demoted Clutch Franzen. Time for calling out if certain "stars" continue to play like this in the playoffs, is draft day when the ax should fall....

#2269256 3/10 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Predators 3

You are right. I expect too much. I will wait to pass judgement on this team when it is 100% and then see what happens. I will wait to see Franzen The Great make his return in the playoffs before I spew more negativity about him, Hudler as well. I just don't like when I state my opinion and get negged for no reason or at least not debated why someone thinks I may be wrong. I could see if I said "Wings Suck" or didn't even try to put together a post, but I simply just said after the deadline that St. Louis and Nashiville were coming hard and I wouldn't be surprised if they both passed then Wings up. Of course I got laughed at and negged, but it is happening. Injuries or not, it is happening. I hope a healthy Wings team climbs back up, but Nashville and St. Louis don't seem to be slowing down. I just get pissed over the neggs because no one seems to want to say why they disagree. They just negg because someone says something bad about a Wings player. They aren't all perfect and are far from criticism, be it negative or positive. Last I checked I paid to support a discussion forum, not a forum that someone just comes in and says Red Wings are Gods and then negs everyone who says something bad about a Red Wing....sorry I expect some discussion on a discussion forum...
