#2575608 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by vladdy16 on Today, 01:12 PM

I'm sure there's a Franzen thread to discuss this in.

#2574999 2/26 GDT : Red Wings 3 at San Jose Sharks 2

Posted by vladdy16 on Yesterday, 03:34 PM

Without our resident Shark killer Franzen, I feel I must invoke YFMB.



We need the points and coming out of the west with this win would be very, very Osgood. (To state the obvious.)

#2574844 Patrick Kane, out anywhere from a month to rest of the season

Posted by vladdy16 on 25 February 2015 - 05:38 PM

I was all prepared to feel bad for Kane*, but on watching the play, Petrovic basically did diddly squat.  Not sure what caused Kane to fall, but it certainly wasn't another player.  Maybe his skate caught a chip in the ice?  And OMG the announcers!  'Nasty hit from behind"?  Pffffffft.  I really need to apply for an announcing job.  I can make s*** up as well as anyone else.



*Not really, but ya know.

#2574799 Going To My First Wings Game - Suggestions?

Posted by vladdy16 on 25 February 2015 - 02:17 PM


I just watch the games on TV, so I don't know how closely those seats are monitored by security and how often they approach people asking to see their tickets.  

In my experience the only seats closely monitored are the lower bowl on the bench side.  You must present your ticket each and every time you attempt to enter.  I never sit in lower bowl unless I'm given the tickets - it's more fun and a better view in the upper bowl.

If and when you all pass the bar, kudos! and I'm sure you'll have steady careers representing sparring LGW members and sports figures.  However, the topic at hand is actually Hank and the mysterious injury.  Let's get back to that, shall we?

It does seem that the players all get together before the game and decide to have a bad night.  Rarely is it only one or two players having an off game - the whole team struggles en masse.

At least when we s*** the bed, it's collective  :lol:

Great minds!

The #RedWings are 3-1-0 in games that they trailed by two goals after one period this season. Only loss was at Boston on Dec. 29.

The next showing is on ESPN2 Friday at midnight, or Thursday night depending on how you think of it.

Press conference at 11:30 am.  You can watch it here.

Thank you very much.

Here's hoping the boys get the Wheelz on da bus for the second and hit the JUCK F***ING POTT to light it up and rack up enough PP goals for BoS's bunghole that it's like a kick to the yambag for TB. (Did I force in enough retro LGW memes there?)

You might want to invoke Blueberry Muffin as well.

#2566619 Sindey Crosby ... haha

Posted by vladdy16 on 28 January 2015 - 08:02 PM

Wow.  Trolled by his own team.  That's really bad.


Do they not have proofreaders for these?  I'm not a fan of the whole "Sindy" thing, but I bet someone could sell this on eBay for a really good profit.

#2565538 Pittsburgh/Philly might be the best rivalry in the game now

Posted by vladdy16 on 22 January 2015 - 11:47 AM

There are all sorts of rivalries, in all sorts of sports, most of which don't have fighting.  Why would it be necessary in this case?

Fighting isn't necessary, but a face wash now and again is good.



#2565517 Stadium series Wings vs Avs 2016!

Posted by vladdy16 on 22 January 2015 - 08:17 AM

I don't care if it's the Wings and every rival they've ever had, the Stadium Series needs to die.  

#2565437 The Maple Leafs finally put a quality product on the ice...

Posted by vladdy16 on 21 January 2015 - 02:07 PM

Pretty cool, but a couple of things:


1)  I never want to see Kessel getting dressed.  Ever.  Under any circumstances.

2)  Please stop showing Phaneuf.  It's embarrassing enough he's on your team, let alone your captain.  You're better served not reminding anyone.

Guess I'm in rare form tonight.  My son keeps poking his head in to see if it's safe to enter the room.
