Posted by kliq on 18 November 2014 - 12:06 PM

I think alot of people are not reading the first paragragh lol:


"Welcome to our Hockey Hall of Fame power rankings. This list goes back to the 1997 class."


Lidstrom is not in the HOF (yet), Orr was inducted before 1997.

Agreed, let's keep this on topic here or else this thread could potentially be locked.

Not the place for this debate.

#2549166 Malkin hit on Girardi

Posted by wings87 on 16 November 2014 - 02:37 AM

I don't mind seeing it after big hits. Because just like someone said as a player you don't know if it was clean or dirty most of time. But standing up for your teammate is te right thing to do.

I actually hate it more when watching the wings and a dirty play happens and everyone just sits there with their thumb up their ass.

You know if it happened after only big hits I wouldn't have that much of a problem with it but as it stands now it happens after every kind of hit.

I don't mind the scuffle at all....who cares of it's dirty or clean?  You don't want your players getting drilled like that.  If Crosby got lit up like that on a perfectly clean hit, if there is no response, then I can easily write that team off as having no chance of success.

It's hockey. People are going to get hit. And acting tough after one of your boys gets drilled isn't going to change that.

#2549059 Jersey Sponsorship

Posted by 55fan on 14 November 2014 - 09:59 PM



If Bettman says ads on jerseys aren't happening soon that means ads on jerseys are probably happening soon. 




So we'll be sponsored by casinos in Las Vegas, where they aren't even discussing having a team?

#2548828 General discussion for tonight's games

Posted by kipwinger on 14 November 2014 - 01:44 PM

This question has been asked numerous times before, and I for one am still waiting for a well thought out answer that doesn't involve cryptically referencing his "attitude."


Literally every single time I've ever heard the guy talk about hockey he's been humble and incredibly gracious.  Including his handling of the racial slurs lobbed at him by some Boston fans during last year's playoffs, or Shawn Thornton spraying him with water from the bench.  At no point have I ever seen him be "pissy".  Even when he should have been.  Then again, there's no reason to be "pissy" when you're really good and winning games over your rivals. 

#2548783 Former Wings coach/GM Bryan Murray has stage 4 cancer

Posted by number9 on 13 November 2014 - 11:42 PM

I'm a cancer survivor myself. I was fortunate to catch mine early, but it still took 2 surgeries and 2 years out of my life. What Murray is facing is something I can't imagine. I would've vacated my job by now if I was him. But he's a stronger man than me. Goodluck to him and his family.

#2548764 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 November 2014 - 06:42 PM

  I think everyone on this letsgowings.com already wants to travel to Vegas to see the Wings play in 70 weather in mid-January.  

That would make an interesting poll.  You might want to start that topic.


And I really wish the NHL would stop shoving it down our throats. Fetch is never gonna happen.

The NHL will stop shoveling s*** down our throats when we stop eating it.  But we're "The Greatest Fans" in the universe.


And "fetch" is totally going to happen.  *****.

#2548750 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by evilmrt on 13 November 2014 - 02:22 PM

This is moving awfully fast for something that wasn't even a possibility two weeks ago.  It's almost as if they've been working on this for years and continually lying to the press and fans.


The NHL has settled on owners for the new franchise: 




Think they really haven't settled on a second city already? 




They've settled on Seattle, but Seattle isn't cooperating at all...as far as we know. I heard Bob McKenzie talking about this the other day, and his sense is also that the league won't do a one-off expansion for just Vegas....there would have to be at least one other city at the same time. 


The only city that fits the bill at this point is QC, but that ruins the "alignment", unless they get creative with conferences and divisions and whatnot. 

#2548695 Ranking Wings Players by Draft Order

Posted by joshy207 on 12 November 2014 - 09:39 PM


IIRC, yes.  I was actually going to comment on this.  Him being listed as undrafted is a bit misleading.  He picked the Wings over many teams pursuing him.


Nothing misleading about it, DeKeyser was not drafted by an NHL team.

He, and a lot of other NCAA players, are late bloomers.  In most cases, they aren't the kids who are ready to play major junior at 16 or 17.  Major junior is usually a faster track to the pros... you're out of eligibility at 20, which would be the age of a college player in the middle of his career.  Some players benefit more from the CHL, others benefit more from the NCAA.  It's up to each player, his family, and his advisors to decide which route is better for that player.

I think the big thing is this team can't quite outscore its mistakes.
