#1932940 Pierre LeBrun thinks it's either DET or VAN from the West

Posted by Barrie on 05 April 2010 - 04:41 PM


From March until the end of the season they went 12-2-1 that year.

Right. Konnan511 must have got 2008 mixed up with 2002. Simple mistake considering we've won so many times :cool:

#1932937 And The Messier Award Nominees for 2009-10 are..

Posted by Barrie on 05 April 2010 - 04:39 PM

I voted Really Dont Give a Rats @$$ xD because I think the award should be named after Yzerman.

#1932347 Wings are playoff bound.

Posted by Barrie on 04 April 2010 - 06:26 PM

I think mindfly wants to give Carman a run for the highest negative rating. :P

#1931351 2009 Finals

Posted by Barrie on 03 April 2010 - 05:43 PM

Still pisses me off.

That is my biggest disappointment as a Wings fan, and it's pretty hard to top it.

To each their own, but it wasn't even close to being my biggest disappointment as a Wings fan. 1) 1994, 2) 2006, and 3) 2001 were far worse for me, in that order. It was a fun ride winning the Western Conference again and going back to the finals, the Anaheim and Chicago series were excellent!

I was upset we lost, but I got over it quick.

I too am hoping for a Wings-Pens 3. I bought a Crosby Sucks t-shirt here http://www.zazzle.ca...033381060675664 and am looking forward to wearing it in June!

#1931347 4/3 GDT: Predators 4 at Red Wings 3 (OT)

Posted by Barrie on 03 April 2010 - 05:23 PM

Oh well, it would have been nice to win, but I'll take the point. The main thing now is to clinch a playoff spot, and we still have two games in hand against Nashville.

Edit: On to the next game, Go Spartans!!

#1923159 DET-PIT Post-Game Discussion

Posted by Barrie on 23 March 2010 - 12:29 PM

Well considering I doubt Zetterberg has the heart to fight a very physical player like Crosby I doubt we will ever know.


Thanks for the laugh! Man are you ever trying to push people's buttons.

Edit: I just got a "Action failed: You have reached your quota of negative votes for the day". Carman's got more than enough anyway.

#1920983 Shoot Out Is Lame

Posted by Barrie on 21 March 2010 - 11:14 AM

I think the NHL should hand out points like they did in the Olympics, every game is 3 points. 3-points for a regulation win, 2-points for a OT or SO win, 1-point for losing in OT, and 0 for losing in 60 minutes.

The SO isn't going anywhere, so in my opinion, this makes the most sense.

#1918492 McCarty & Claude Lemieux on TSN's OTR

Posted by Barrie on 18 March 2010 - 10:12 PM

From watching it I don't think LaPhew thinks he did anything wrong when he hit Draper. Just hockey.

That's what bothers me the most, he doesn't think he did anything wrong.

Edit: Lemieux says he didn't mean to hurt Draper, but what did he expect would happen by driving (someone smaller than him, and with his back to him) his face into the boards? DMac was right there and said he heard a pop sound. Sick! Gutless!.. Then there's all that B.S. Claude said about Draper the next season.

I could go on and on, but I'll stop at 4 replies :lol:

#1918325 McCarty & Claude Lemieux on TSN's OTR

Posted by Barrie on 18 March 2010 - 05:40 PM

Had no idea he jumped on the Wings bus to challenge Scotty,hahaha.

That's what Lemieux did, he picked on guys either smaller or a lot older than he was. When someone his own size and age took him on, he turtled.

#1918320 McCarty & Claude Lemieux on TSN's OTR

Posted by Barrie on 18 March 2010 - 05:35 PM

I saw the last 10 minutes, after 13 years, I don't have a problem with Mac and Claude getting along. However until Lemieux says sorry to Draper, he's scum.

#1914759 Gustav Nyquist-- Hockey's Future Prospect of the Month

Posted by Barrie on 12 March 2010 - 03:36 PM

In that case-- hell yeah.

Sounds good, I like the thought of adding Nyquist and Tatar to the Wings in a few years.

#1912270 How many players from Team USA would have made Team Canada?

Posted by Barrie on 09 March 2010 - 08:23 PM

When you post about international hockey your post are very American leaning for being a Canadian. Maybe not American leaning but anti-Canadian.

I've been a Detroit fan since the mid-80's, so I think differently than fellow Canadians when it comes to sports. Other than seeing the Saskatchewan Roughriders in Toronto and Hamilton, I don't go to Toronto for sporting events, I drive to Detroit for Red Wings and Tigers games.

I still don't understand the "It's our game" comments. My response is "So?". Canada still has to earn the victories, it's not a God given right. Personally, as a Canadian and a Hockey fan, I think it's great Hockey is so excepted world wide, and I think the rest of the country should feel the same way. Be proud, not "It's our game".

Every country that plays hockey has helped the development and greatness of the game. Plus us Detroit fans see how important Americans, Europeans, and Russians have been to the success of our organization, along with Canadians.
