#2683264 Glendening signs 4-year, $1.8m AAV extension

Posted by AtlantaHotWings on 15 July 2016 - 12:34 PM

Why are people bitching about this?? Does everyone forget that his injury lost us the 2015 series with the lightning. He owned tyler Johnson ala 2009 zetterberg on Crosby. People need to remember that it isn't 2006 anymore and 1.8 million for a 4th liner is not a bad deal.

Not sure who should be more insulted by the above statement. Crosby being compared to Johnson or Z being compared to Glenndog.

True - just that we expect more is all.


Lambeau Field in Green Bay, WI might be the only pro sports facility not whored out once the Joe is demolished.....To me - that says alot.

Perhaps thats due to the fans owning the stock of the team?


Better than Amway Arena...


Well that s***ty tasting pizza as you call it is owned by the Illitch family 

Matches the s**** product currently being iced...

#2673467 Who gets the "A" when datsyuk leaves?

Posted by AtlantaHotWings on 25 April 2016 - 06:40 AM

Chicago gave the C to a 19 year old. That turned out pretty well.

Turned out pretty good when we gave the C to a youngster too....


but we are talking A not the C so I think Abby or DK would be candidates. I see Larkin getting the C in 2 years when Z hangs them up especially if he keeps growing into the role. 

#2670733 I hate Tyler Johnson

Cant say I like this, but i'd rather send him down to play then leave him up as a healthy scratch.


I think we let the kids play and lets see what speed can do. There was game in the last 5 where AA was down at the dots and came back to break up a play due to his speed. Who has our shorthanded goals? I believe once again AA.  When did our PP start to click when Mantha parked his big booty in front of the net. Even Larkin seems to be getting back some of his gusto. 


We have nothing to lose by doing as suggested above in multiple posts intermingle the youth with the old. Seems like last year all we heard about was how fast Tampa was. Well lets see how fast they really are and run and gun. We know our defense is well our defense so f it and let the kids get experience. 


We aren't considered a favorite for the cup.  Speed can draw penalties, penalties gives power plays and up till when Mantha was sat we were clicking right along in that department.


We seem to forget the holiest of holy Stevie Y wasn't a full 2 way player until Scotty forced him so it takes some time to develop that game.  


Time for little Wings to take flight.

What a joke


imagine if AA got over 5 minutes


how much more evidence do you need to stop riding the old men they are not good at sports

As an old man I take exception to that ! We are good at sports..golf, backgammon, shuffleboard.....

#2664779 4/6 GDT : Philadelphia Flyers at Red Wings, 8:00 ET

Posted by AtlantaHotWings on 06 April 2016 - 04:01 PM

Flyers love to goon it up especially when they're losing. Too bad the only player that would do anything about it is Abdelkader 


I seem to remember Mr Howard slapping Mtl's Brown in the face with the blocker so we have our enforcer but only in the net.

Tomorrow Wings fans need to cheer for both Chicago and Pittsburgh.


When's the last time that's happened in the same day?

What a crappy way to spend my birthday but I will cause I love my Wings....

#2662039 3/26 GDT : Pittsburgh Penguins at Detroit Red Wings, 2:00 PM ET

Posted by AtlantaHotWings on 26 March 2016 - 11:00 AM

The only thing that makes me nervous is a 2:00 start. They are always late showing showing up to these ones, hopefully they can get rolling here LGW


But the saving grace it appears it's not on NHL network, NBC, or any other station where Doc, Eddie and Pierre are commenting on the game. I would be terrified if this was a 3 PM game on Sunday.

Its not down to Philly and Detroit. Philly is playing some of the best hockey in the league right now and will get in. The spot will be either Detroit, Boston, or the Islanders. Better to watch those teams results than Philly.


Al Davis said it best...."Just win baby win"
