...I thought maybe we could get away from all the Zetterberg pics that take the ladies to the next page so, with all due respect to Zetterberg and the ladies, I thought the fellas would like to see some real Euro-Twins!

Lets Go Wings!

#2163804 Mike Modano Time

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 May 2011 - 07:15 PM

What exactly does Modano bring to the table?

about the same as switching goalies after your #1 guy has given up 4 goals on 10 shots. Just to try to change the atmosphere, some momentum, a different look. Light a fire under whoever has to sit in Mike's place and maybe turn their play around. Motivate others to pick it up or they could be sitting as well. Modano is neither better or worse than the fore-mentioned players, but his style of play is vastly different and it would cause San Jose to change up a little bit, and that could throw the equilibrium off enough for a few lucky bounces to go our way, instead of theirs...

#2163729 WCSF Game 2 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Sharks 2

Posted by LeftWinger on 01 May 2011 - 06:05 PM

someone earlier reminded us about Vancouver in 2002 when the Wings were down 0-2. Thats true, and it could happen again, but there are a few things that are different:

1. Steve Yzerman
2. Brenden Shanahan
3. Sergei Fedorov
4. Brett Hull
5. Luc Robitaille
6. Dominic Hasek
7. Igor Larinov
8. a 31 year old Nick Lidstrom

If only Chicago won...

...yes, so we can be down 0-2 still. The way the Wings are playing 5-10 mins a game, it wouldn't matter who they played. The Florida Panthers would be up 2-0 to the Wings right now...

it aint over yet guys.... but if for some reason this is how the Wings are going to play and DO get eliminated, can we please stop with the small soft skilled Euro experiment... at least gets some Euro's with some snarl.

Lets go Wings! IF you got to take it to 7, then do it, but for Heavens sake, show up for 60 minutes!

Isn't it nice to know that since the lockout, there is only ONE defending Stanley Cup Champion left in the playoffs.... :D

#2149469 Finally, a game time schedule favorable to the wings

Posted by LeftWinger on 15 April 2011 - 10:12 AM

They killed off 4 penalties and a 5 on 3 with horrible officiating to boot and still stayed down by 1. If they play like that, I still think they can dispose of this team. Just my opinion there.

Also, to add here that Bryz made like 3 real big saves that would normally have gone in. Their play for the 1st wasn't as bad as most make it out to be.

...and just like Babcock answered in the post game presser, when ask if he was concerned that the Coyotes controlled the game in the first, he calmly asked the questioning reporter, "Did they control the first period or were they just on the power play?" Then he mentioned something about after the first they had 11 shots and we had 10, so we did ok for ourselves....

#2144238 4/8 GDT: Blackhawks 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by LeftWinger on 08 April 2011 - 09:21 PM

We're getting Hudler back....oh....

don't worry guys, it's early....oh....

just wait until half our team isn't injured.....oh....

Franzen will be our trade deadline aquisition.....oh.....

Franzen is better than Fedorov...oh....

They'll flip the switch in the playoffs! (crosses fingers....)

Just an observation, but isn't it ironic that the sub-million dollar players are the ones that are playing the best?

I am so glad our farm team is full of Hudler's and Filppula's.... (I certainly hope Smith and Sheahan are as good as they are touted.)

We need an entirely new defense. Lids is finally human, Kindl sucks, Ericsson is showing why he was the last player drafted, Kronwall really has gotten bad over then last couple of years, Salei was a bad experiment. What are the Wings gonna do for defense in the off season? I really hope things turn around in the playoffs, I'd hate to see this team fall flat in the first round. I hope and hope above all hope that they turn it on, but if what we have seen the past couple months is the real identity of this team, then there really needs to be some major changes this summer....

#2139514 Believe

Posted by LeftWinger on 31 March 2011 - 01:09 PM

I believe...

...that their defense sucks, minus Lidstrom and Stuart, every other defender can hit the road.

...Howard is not good, he is good as a back up (and not even as good as Osgood was at the same point in his career.)

...Brad McCrimmon must go.

...We are lacking serious fire power. I'd still like to see what Madano can do with a full season, but pretty much, if your name isn't Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Helm or Abdelkader then you can leave your jersey at the door on your way out. I will give passing grades to Holmstrom, Cleary, Eaves & Miller, but I am VERY disappointed and upset with the rest. AND contrary to what most LGW'er's believe, the future is not bright. Our farm club is full of the same kind of players. Murask, Tatar, etc...

...The Wings need to cut ties with some salary and get that sniper...

#2136799 Toronto fans Fight Night at The Joe?

Colors...Co.. Co.. Co.. Colors..Colors....

:censored: Ya, lets fight because someone else has a different Jersey on. :hysterical: It was a little a girl and her dad, so I had to be nice.... Hey, how about just be an adult?

The world is full of dumb-ass people, that's for sure...

#2128995 Owners back Gary Bettman with 5-year contract extension

Posted by LeftWinger on 11 March 2011 - 06:19 PM

They like having a yes-man that is just a figurehead for them and never challenges them to improve the league and make the hard decisions... pathetic...

Sort of like the President of The United States is for our crappy Government...

...owners don't want someone there who knows whats best for the game (Shanahan) they want a lawyer there who knows whats best for them and their money...

#2126840 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by LeftWinger on 06 March 2011 - 07:07 PM

how can people say we will all of a sudden be good in the playoffs?

are we gunna magically stop being soft?

that is the script a typical Wings fan follows.... "Guys it's only Decemeber..." "...Wait until we're healthy...(with the same guys every year being hurt (seems like it)" "...our powerplay is our enforcer..." "...just wait until the playoffs..."

Some years they're right, but if the Wings cannot stop having third period collapses and start playing defense and STOP giving up 4 goals a game, Stanley Cup Champ chances are slim to none and slim has one foot out the door...

I only hope that if they fail again, McCrimmon is not back for another season.

Remember the old days when the D was so good that "your gramma" could play goalie and win? Those days are gone, Howard can only do so much, he is doing great but gets left out to dry on a nightly basis! Could you imagine Howard on the 1990's and early 2000's squads? He'd be, well he'd be Chris Osgood! :ninja:

#2121041 Zherdev On Waivers

Posted by LeftWinger on 23 February 2011 - 04:04 PM

his cap hit is 2mil. 47 games 15 goals 4 assist. no thanks

yet it's acceptable for a $2.8M cap hit for someone who only has 10 more points and has played in 9 more games?
