#2623817 Dan Cleary re-signing still possible?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 24 August 2015 - 08:11 PM

Wow. Even from Toronto that dastardly Babcock is somehow forcing Holland to sign Cleary again.

I knew Babcock was good, but I didn't know he was that good.

I'm going out to buy a lottery ticket, because, apparently, someone is answering my prayers.




#2613618 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 09 June 2015 - 10:53 AM

 

Well perhaps it should die, because what they do as an organization has little bearing on the Wings. Caring a hate-torch for the Hawks is petty. It's what Chicago did when they were jealous of Detroit for 20 years. I don't want that going the other way while they're on top as Detroit retools.

 

So, unless they're beating the Wings in the Cup final, or keeping them from making the playoffs, I'll reserve my loathing for teams like Tampa, Montreal, Boston, and eventually Florida and Buffalo.

 

But this is just how I feel. Personal preference.

 

How is hating the Blackhawks more petty than hating any other team in the league? Hatred isn't rational. It's part of being a fan and having rivalries.  

 

For me it's not only deeply ingrained from the longstanding Wings rivalry, but it's also that their current roster has several players who are pretty easy to hate compared to the Lightning.  Then throw their fanbase on top of it and it comes pretty easily. 

 

If I'm picking a team I'd want to win the Cup that's not the Wings, between the Blackhawks and Tampa, it's a pretty easy choice.  If only to make Eddie Olczyk shed tears that subtly interfere with his happiness.

#2604921 ECQF Game 7 GDT : at Lightning 2, Red Wings 0 (Tampa wins series, 4-3)

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 30 April 2015 - 09:10 AM

Let go of the West. Give up the past. Come, join me in my loathing of the Eastern Conference.

 

My hate for the Blackhawks is deeply rooted and transcends all conferences.

My favorite time of the year!

 

I'll do (sort of, I think) the same pledge as last year, because it was so fun to keep track!

 

x cents per goal, based on scorer's jersey number. 1/2x for assists, 2x for power play goals and 3x for a shorty.

 

Each game I'll also do something different, based on that game only. Game 1 vs Tampa will be 13c per Datsyuk faceoff win.

 

LGW!!

Posted by 55fan on 12 April 2015 - 08:14 PM

Yes!  Thanks for doing this again.  Either charity is fine, although I tend to lean towards children's hospitals.  There is no wrong answer if the money is going towards a good cause.

 

I'm going with the hamster bet again.  And, again, I'll keep track in my sig because it would be impossible otherwise.

 

$1 for each goal scored by a Wing after whom I've named a hamster (must still play for the Wings, sorry Filppula).

An additional $1 if the above-mentioned goal scored is a GWG.

An additional $5 if it is a GWG in a series-winning game.

An additional $50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.

 

$5 for each time a goalie after whom I've named a hamster prevents all opposing shots from going in the net.

 

The hamsters names are as follows (current Wings in red)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthieu Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew (Drew) Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

 

Go Wings!
