Congrats LGW! Great place. Great people




#2653553 Dennis Wideman Suspended 20 Games

Posted by Son of a Wing on 18 February 2016 - 04:36 PM

If the "teammate" indeed turn over the text message, what a dick. I don't care if it was the wrong thing to text, or even if he hit the linesman on purpose, you don't dick over your friend that way.  Of course they most likely aren't friends anymore and I don't doubt there is some retribution coming...and I don't blame Wideman if he does.  It doesn't matter if what Wideman did was wrong or right, you don't rat out your fellow player unless you had an agenda.  In the working world that is called being a company man.  This "teammate" had no reason to rat him out on the text.  He had no interest in the case, but now he is balls deep in it.  Revenge will be sweet.

 

Again, I am not condoning the hit, nor even the stupid text, but man, what a dick move by the teammate. That is worse than the incident itself and I hope the rest of the team takes care of it.  Unless Wideman sent out a multiple text to many teammates, then he knows exactly who it was and s***s gonna get real,  really soon...

 

 

Sure Wideman can't wait to start playing for Calgary again now, knowing that one of his teammates is a completely untrustworthy scumbag snake.

 

Totally agree with LeftWinger.   Regardless of if you agree or not, it is a total piece of s*** move to rat out a teammate like that, and says everything about said persons character.  I hope the entire team comes together to flush out the snake and handles them appropriately.

 

 

Whoever provided the NHL with that txt message should be help accountable teamwise, you either support nor teammate or don't get involved at all.

 

I think the move is about getting his money back and of course to set a precedent to overrule the decisions of a commissioner.

 

 

yep, what that player needs is an Eric Lindros blanket party...I guess whichever player on Calgary is scratched due to having broken ribs from a "car accident" is the guilty one! :ninja:

 

Wow guys...way to completely make something up out of nothing...lol

 

No teammate gave any texts to anyone.  

 

Bettman requested all written information which by law includes text messages.

 

Wideman was required by law to hand them over.




#2651720 9 (NINE!) player trade involving Phanuef

Posted by Son of a Wing on 09 February 2016 - 01:46 PM

They've been trying to trade Phaneuf for two years now. Why would they trade for stamkos at the deadline when they have no chance of making the playoffs? Why wouldn't they wait till the off-season and sign him?

Not saying it's not possible but it doesn't make sense. They'd have to give up a lot to get stamkos and that would completely unravel everything shanny is trying to do in Toronto. It would end up being the same thing every other gm there does, salivate and the opportunity to trade for a big star trade everything away for it, start the rebuild over. Rinse and repeat for another 20 years.

 

Can't imagine he was talking about a trade this season since it doesn't free up any immediate cap space.

 

Tons after next season though.

 

Great trade for the Leafs in the long-term.  Good trade for Ottawa for this season and next.

Great to see!  Not the same without LGW.




#2650840 ROY according to LGW

Posted by Son of a Wing on 31 January 2016 - 10:10 PM

If I had to put money on it - just by the way things have played out I'm going to go ahead and say that Larkin will win the Calder for sure (100%). He's simply attracted way too much attention at this point. 

 

Unless he hits a wall the second half of the season that is. 

 

“Lots of people talk about the wall and the NHL schedule is certainly difficult and can be a grind for sure, whether you played college or junior or any of that,” Blashill said. “I don’t believe in the wall. I think if you allow yourself to hit a wall, you hit a wall, but I don’t believe it has to happen. 

“I look at what Dylan did last year. If you think about the experience he went through last year – playing college hockey as a freshman (at Michigan), playing in the world junior tournament (for the United States), finishing his year, having to make an extremely difficult life decision, playing in the worlds, coming to Grand Rapids and playing in the (AHL Calder Cup) playoffs – there isn’t going to be a more excruciating year than that.

#2644019 Wings Need on D and Glaring Inconsistencies

Posted by Son of a Wing on 22 December 2015 - 06:58 PM

Suter doesn't produce much

In comparison to who? Bobby Orr?

 

24 points in 32 games this season lol

 

He has averaged 40 points a season for almost his entire career.

Pavel like you've never seen him before.

#2641535 Goalie Battle

Posted by Son of a Wing on 07 December 2015 - 03:01 PM

The difference is Varlamov was a 23yr old RFA and Schneider was a 26yr old on a good contract.

 

Howard is 31 and has a big contract.  

 

Those guys had their best years ahead of them.  We've probably seen the best Howard has to offer.

 

He's just not the same value as those guys.  Especially in a cap system.


I could see a late 1st or a couple 2nd rounders for Howard at most.

 

Plus we'd probably have to either take salary back or retain some.

 

It could be an expiring UFAs salary, but there's no way we're dumping that 5mil with nothing coming back.


Regardless it's an offseason deal if it happens at all.

#2638368 When does Larkin get the C?

Posted by Son of a Wing on 20 November 2015 - 05:09 PM

Alright you've made the blocked list.

 

This is why I don't even bother engaging in conversation anymore.

 

Talk about clueless...




#2638298 Roster Moves by the Wings

Posted by Son of a Wing on 20 November 2015 - 12:21 AM

Isles want good return.

This is a good chance for us to move Smith and Nyquist and get a solid right handed D back.

Kenny should be all over this.

#2633994 Jeff Blashill = Dave Lewis 2.0 / Coaching Change

Posted by Son of a Wing on 29 October 2015 - 10:52 PM

They won't make the playoffs this year, folks need to realize that

 

Please..enlighten us with your wisdom ol' wise one...




#2633960 Mike Green out 2-3 weeks

Posted by Son of a Wing on 29 October 2015 - 04:02 PM

Close to half of the teams in this league are shorter in height and smaller in weight on average then the Wings.

 

We're actually right around the middle and the disparity is not as much as you think.

 

But hey who like stats anyways...
