With a comment like that, how long have you been a Red Wings fan? Two years?

#2033078 Hudler is officially back

Posted by Barrie on 13 September 2010 - 04:44 PM

Welcome back Huds, I'll never forget the time during warmups (08-09 season), while standing in the corner behind the glass and watching Ozzie, you fired the puck at my face. You would have hit me square in the nose if it wasn't for the glass!

#2032512 Stanley Cup Predictions

I love how a Penguins fan comes to a Red Wings board and then somehow acts suprised when Red Wings fans defend/hype their team.

Bring back the negative ratings!

#2031668 I've Never Wached Game 7 of the 2009 SCF...

Posted by Barrie on 07 September 2010 - 10:06 PM

I'm just wondering who here is old enough to be a Wings fan, or remember, before 1997? 2009 was bad, but as a fan since the late 1980's, it wasn't the worst for me. 1994, 1995, and 1996 was much worse.

After winning the cup, playoff defeats, for me, were easier to take.

This could very well be the intent.

And I think those two deserve it.

#3 gives me chills every time!

I'd like to see a list sometime of the most important goals, not just the prettiest. DMac's would be there, along with Kozlov's OT GWG from the 1995 WFC, Yzerman's OT GWG Game 7 1996 vs. St.Louis, Shanny's empty netter Game 6 1997 WFC, Draper's OT winner in the 1998 Final, Larionov's OT GWG Game 3 2002, Shanny's EN Game 5 2002 Final, the Turd Goal (Zetterberg's) in the 2008 Final, and the OT GWG's in the 2009 WCF by Samuelsson and Helm.

There's 10 off the top of my head! Man, we've seen a lot of great moment!

Why don't you just google "Red Wings center ice Hockeytown Logo"?

#2025368 NHL examining other long term contracts

Posted by Barrie on 11 August 2010 - 10:20 PM

I guess Bettman is trying for a 0% approval rating. How much more can this guy be hated? If he starts voiding Luongo, Hossa, Savard, and Pronger deals, and even try's the Zetterberg, Franzen, Lecavalier, etc. ones he should seriously watch his back and keep his public appearances to a minimum. Seriously how much more until some crazed fan try's to take him out?

First of all he pissed of the PA with the cap, now he'll piss of owners if they lose their top stars. What a mess! It's time to show Bettman (I think his days are becoming numbered) the door and go with a more sensible Luxury Cap system.

#2019862 I'm Boycotting the Winter Classic...

Posted by Barrie on 27 July 2010 - 08:45 PM

I'm not watching it either. I guess Bettman still hasn't realized Crosby isn't liked outside Pittsburgh and some parts of Canada. Man the NHL is stubborn and doesn't know how to market themselves properly! Cash in on the USA Olympic Team's success and the Chicago-Philly Stanley Cup Final you morons, quit this Crosby crap already!

#2017532 NHL Rejects Kovalchuk's Contract

Posted by Barrie on 20 July 2010 - 09:13 PM

The Devils were basically daring the league to stop this deal and lost.

Aside from signing a player until he's 44, this part is pretty ridiculous too:

Kovalchuk was slated to earn $95 million over the first 10 years of the deal and then just $7 million over the last seven seasons.

That's pretty obvious they were trying to reduce the cap hit.

Can't blame NJ for trying.

#2014650 RUMOR: Wings Offer 1-year Contract to Maltby

Posted by Barrie on 13 July 2010 - 07:37 PM

I'd rather have Maltby than Modano. With Modano I'm sure the team would feel pressure to at least give him 3rd line minutes. Maltby can play 8-10 minutes or can be a healthy scratch without complaints.

#2013690 Vey old game Russia-Canada

Posted by Barrie on 10 July 2010 - 11:20 PM

Funny, I don't consider a game from 1996 as very old.

I think there's a thread about the Hawks if you're looking for a change of pace.

Haha, no thanks!
