yup, and before you know it, no escape from reality

just so long as you don't kill a man by putting a gun against his head and pulling the trigger and he's dead... Anything but that and I'm good.

#2548794 Former Wings coach/GM Bryan Murray has stage 4 cancer

"Most of the important things in the world have been accomplished by people who kept on trying when there seemed to be no hope at all." - Dale Carnegie

 

 

Bryan Murray will live his passion until he can no longer do it.  I think that he will work in the NHL up until the day he passes.  I also believe in miracles and hope and pray for one of those today.




#2548665 Stars trade Sergei Gonchar for Travis Moen from MTL

Posted by LeftWinger on 12 November 2014 - 03:00 PM

Thinking it over, I give crap to Holland, but I cannot fault him for not doing anything when all the other GM's want is Mantha.  Then accept far less from someone else. It's the same old story, rape the Red Wings... I sure wish the arbitrator system would come back to the NHL...




#2548663 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by LeftWinger on 12 November 2014 - 02:58 PM

I like the idea of the Panthers just moving there.  Why have an expansion, when you have a franchise that is struggling to stay afloat?

 

I like the idea of Las Vegas having a team, but if they continued to struggle, they would have more "fans" in the concourse playing the slots and watching TV monitors, than actually sitting in the arena.




#2548650 Tomas Holmstrom: Commercial Star

Too Funny! I guess the nickname "Demolition Man" takes on a whole new meaning now!

 

I cannot help but picture all the old episodes of Home Improvement while watching those! He and Tim Allen could give each other a run for the money!




#2548428 11/9 GDT - Tampa Bay 4 at Detroit 3 (SO) - 6:00 PM EST

Posted by LeftWinger on 09 November 2014 - 08:52 PM

Why am I not surprised with the SO results?  

 

Babs ... can we practice the SO at the end of practices?  

they do practice SO's...problem is, they practice them on Jimmy Howard who is never a challenge to beat in a SO. The shooters are given a false sense that they can actually score in a SO.

 

also, f*** Franzen for ***** footing the potential game winner at the goalie. I will never be over the fact that Hossa has reached 1000 points and we are stuck with this "serious contract." Serious hot garbage.

stop calling him Mule, stop calling him Pav, stop calling him Z....jeez, these names are used so we don't have to type the entire name out. If you enjoy writing Nestrasil everytime you talk about him, go for it. I for one, do not care if people call him Nesty.




#2545533 10/29 GDT - Red Wings 4 @ Capitals 2

Nesty will be fine....I seem to remember a certain Nyquist not doing too much last season until January then he lit up the league.  Not saying Nesty is going to light up the league, but lets give him some time to get acclimated to the NHL.  I'd rather be paying Nesty his small contract for his production than paying someone $5.5M for he same production.  Besides, Nesty is an RFA this off season, you don't want him lighting up 30 goals and then have to pay him $4M as well as Nyquist do you? I'd rather him have a learning season in the NHL and then get a modest pay increase in the off season.  When Weiss returns, he is either going to bump Jurco (waiver exempt) down or Cleary, or he just may waive that NTC in order to get top playing minutes elsewhere.

Sorry Brant, for some reason I cannot "quote" a post and it slipped my mind who wrote that.  From now on you will be known as THE User! :lol: Just kidding!


SJR I agree! Smith and Gus will, but man that is going to make things tight! We got a few more kids out of options as well...another reason I sure wish they only gave Q one year and if they can somehow dump K's salary I will feel  a little less uneasy.

I was just commenting on the user who said put Franzen in and we will be dangerous.  I simply said Franzen would not make a difference when he comes back and if he isn't going to make a difference it would suck to bump a more deserving player out of the lineup. I guess the answer lies when he does come back if he can go back to what he was doing.  I hope he does.  He, Z and Nyquist were gelling together pretty good.  I will welcome that back as long as it doesn't screw up the rest of the lines.  Lets hope he returns and becomes the offense and the PP cure.  I hope he is, but I still am on record saying that he won't be.

 

Anyhow, lets not turn this nice win into a Franzen debate! :lol: It was nice to see our guys playing together and getting some chemistry going.  Still not impressed with E or K.  Q looked alright.
