#2624494 So this is why teams hate the wings

Datsyuk's work ethic trumps Fedorov's sense of entitlement for me any day.

This sums up my feelings on the subject nicely:


Biggest takeaway from this @MarkLazerus column: GMs hear 'bargain buy?!' when everyone else hears 'felonies'


This doesn't just affect Hawks fans - the recent spate of issues plaguing NHL players has long been something we hockey fans have been pretty smug about not having to deal with. We've lost a lot of moral ground lately.

Nobody would get punched (even you kipwinger).  Maybe if certain members met up in 2009 or 2010, but not now.  Very tame around here.  


Now if number 9 looks like the guy in his avatar, then he might get punched.  

Hey, hey, hey!  Don't speak for everybody!   :tounge:

This actually depresses me.  I've been a fan long enough to lose Olympia and The Joe.

#2623686 Grantland: The Heavyweight Belt of NHL Rivalries

Posted by vladdy16 on 21 August 2015 - 05:27 PM

Pretty soon rivalries will be based on the actually game being played. How lame. I can't think of a single good rivalry that doesn't involve punching. Except the Yankees vs. The Red Sox, Michigan vs. Ohio State, North Carolina vs. Duke, or Liverpool vs. Manchester United.

Yep, obviously can't have bitter rivalries without fighting. You betcha.

No one said there can't be bitter rivalries without fighting, although hockey does lend itself to that being a large component.  Most here are lamenting the decidedly low bar that has been set for what constitutes a rivalry; something we've actually been doing since the press kept telling us we had one going with the Preds two seasons into their existence

Rivalries today just don't seem the same as they were 15 plus years ago.

They're not.  Used to be a rivalry grew from intense competition that left blood on the ice, literally and figuratively.  Now it's just whatever team is playing on Wednesday night.

Is there any way to Photoshop live TV so we can scrub the advertising?  

I can't imagine doing any ads front and center as the article claims.  Around the bottom maybe?

Thanks, that would be much appreciated.  There are 3 mods to the hundreds of members.  We aren't online all the time, especially at the time these threads are being created, which is usually during work hours or at 3am.   I'd rather get 12 reports about the same thread than no reports.  

#2621378 Wings lose scout to leafs

Posted by vladdy16 on 23 July 2015 - 07:54 PM

Hey I'm glad Babcock and his minions are gone

OMG, what an awesome photoshop opportunity that is!!




I generally don't mind the poaching, especially in Babcock's case, as people prefer working with certain people and others are offered a promotion, but it's kinda weird that it's the only time people tend to leave our front office.

Why wouldn't Pronger be in the HOF?  He's one of the best players of his generation.  I don't see them looking the other way because of some lame salary cap loophole the idiotic NHL has created. Pronger isn't the mastermind behind the league's idiocy.  

Because you are eligible 3 years after you retire.  Pronger is not retired, therefore he is not eligible.  Not sure how they're working that out.

#2615345 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

OMG.  That would be AWESOME!  Have like 6 people in Wings shirts walking down a dirt road with signs and like one shirtless guy with a huge beer belly sitting in lawn chair with a cooler watching the "parade."
