#2557438 Oilers schedule presser tomorrow

Posted by kipwinger on 17 December 2014 - 02:12 PM

Kip, I do agree with you that that is probably what the asking price would be, and I also agree on saying "no thanks". However, I don't understand why you insist on always calling Brendan, Reilly's brother, and referring to Reilly as "the Good Smith". Reilly is a pretty decent player but I do think that Brendan is better. Defense is a much harder position to play at the NHL level, I don't need to tell you that. Brendan's overall skillset is far superior to Reilly's in my opinion. He is bigger, nastier and is a better skater. Reilly of course puts up more points, as he should being a forward, but you act like he's the better player of the two. He is not.


Simple.  To irritate people who REALLY like Smith.  It's my way of having fun at your expense lol.

Man. You guys are unbelievable. 


You realize that the entire team sucks at shootouts right? 


I agree that Howard is the biggest problem but there’s no way he should absorb all of the criticism.

#2555801 Jimmy sucks in a shootout Howard

As poor as he is in the shoot outs - I'm more concerned with his play for the playoffs when Jimmy won't have to worry about them.

Another loss to a team you dominated and had to play the night before. Maybe we should invest a second or two on breakaways because we had a million of them. Then again...maybe they score on all of them in practice against Jimmy.

"I know some (people) were saying that we don't have a shot for a playoff (spot), but I'm surprised you can say it with the big names in this locker room," Tatar said. "If we stay healthy we might actually have a shot at the (Stanley) Cup."


How do you not like this guy?

This just proves they teach kids nothing in Canada besides hockey and pro wrestling.   :lol:


Slap shots and elbow drops. weeooooooooooooooooooooo

Toronto has a basketball team?


If you look at the standings, they are basically the opposite of where the Pistons are  :ninja:

After years of watching mediocre games, I'm excited to finally see the real Wings return. LGW! Keep it up!

#2554113 Once again The D is awesome

That short bit about Weiss saying someone left a note on his car is extremely cool to me. I felt pretty bad for the guy, not being able to play the game he loves for so long and probably getting a lot of flak to boot.

Anyway cool for Detroit. It's nice to know that we're not the only ones who think we're a sweet sports city!

Pulkkinen has has 23 points in 18 games. (9g, 14a) His trade value is at an all time high. Maybe him, Kindl, and a pick for a top four D.

"Wings need a sniper!"


"Omg Pulkkinen has the best slapshot since Hull!"


*Trade him for other teams expendable D-man*


Kill yourself

Throwing an idea out there. No need to be a name caller.


Idiot. There, I live up to my name

I'd be pretty disgruntled after not having won a Cup since 1967.


Then they should stop buying tickets and put pressure on the organization to make some fundamental changes.  They're like Lions fans.  If you're sick of losing stop giving them money.

Better than anyone expected? No. we are playing were most of us expected. fact is we have won 10 games out of 19. Barely above .500. If the PO's started this morning we are in as the 7th seed. No different than the past few years. This while guys like Nyquist, Franzen, and tatar have been hot scoring goals. They all will cool off and then things get more concerning. yes if he dominates Mantha could be a jan 1 pickup that helps. But he isn't the type of player we need most: front of the net grinder types. We simply don't have any in our system. We need 2 Hornquist type of players. Then another puck moving Dman that shoots RHed.

Perron and Petry would be great pick ups for this team. Now what we would have to pay is the question. 

We're in the seventh seed because everyone above us has played two more games than we have. If the Wings win their games in hand, they're second in the division.  Additionally, we may have won 10 out of 19, but we've also only lost 4 out of 19 in regulation, which is the second best in the league to only Pittsburgh's 3 regulation losses.

So whil the facts you give are technically true, they're also an incredibly negative and misleading spin on what's actually going on.  Through the first quarter of this season, the Wings have playing like a top 10 team.

He was being sarcastic. About 99% of his post are sarcasm. It's to the point where you can't take anything he says seriously.

And yes agree in the rookies thing. That's why they need oullete playing this year then when quincey a deal is up we can have sproul and oullete as our third pair(at that point third and firs year players). Still can't believe holland have Quincey a two year deal....then again I can since that's what he does.


Only 70% of my posts are sarcastic bud. Do your homework and get your facts straight before commenting on the nature of my LGW posts. You're hyperbole is at a point where I can't take you seriously anymore.

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!
