#2533948 Greatest Wings game ever

Posted by vladdy16 on 09 August 2014 - 03:03 PM

There are a ton of games to choose from, but when you get right down to it March 26th, 1997 is THE game for me.  It had it all.  Roller-coaster score, retribution, goalie fight, poetic justice, blood, a raucous crowd, the unexpected (Larionov starting a fight?!) highlight reel goals and saves and a Wings win in overtime.

That's what I'm talking about! I love me an ugly sweater, but isn't the whole point that they're cheap?!

I think the whole point is that they're ugly.  I never knew that "cheap" was necessarily part of it.


I'd say as far as Wings gear goes, this is closer to the reasonably priced end believe it or not.  Although I'm pretty sure they'd have to pay me to wear this one.

Do we really need to keep rehashing the same joke over and over again?

No, we don't.  The next one will be dealt with swiftly.

He's a booster.  That means Matt has him under contract as a Wings fan.  He's OURS!

Normally you would be correct, but there's been a lot of talk in the front office about sending him to GR.  He's basically defected to HF  No trade.  We'll retain his rights.  *evil grin*




#2529745 Article on FAs and Red Wings

There is nothing in this article bashing or dissing the city of Detroit in any way and we already gave our opinions on the state of the city the last few days.  Let's not turn this into discussing Detroit.

Calgary got Jonas Hiller, Dallas got Spezza, Detroit gets a rock.

Do you have a source to support your claim of Detroit actually acquiring said rock?

#2527645 Jason Spezza traded to Stars for 3 prospects, 2nd-rd pick

I'm a huge Holland supporter and I think he is still doing a great job and is STILL one of the best GMs in the league. But look at what Nill is doing in Dallas. It's crazy how quick he is turning that team around. I strongly believe they will be a serious contender within a few years. Part of me wished he took over as GM of the Wings and Holland took on another role. Again, I love Holland, so please don't turn this into another Holland bash fest. Nill just gets s*** done.

I agree and I have nothing but love for Jim Nill, but he also had a lot more money to work with and nowhere to go but up really.  I'm withholding judgment for the next couple of seasons.

Hey, I'm just thrilled they have the lower bowl paying attention to the game instead of their phones.

Seriously, Kings fans?  Chanting "Lundquist" after your second goal?  Did you forget Quick was scored on twice first?

I hope we don't get too used to that.  :cheesy:


You are correct, sir.


Dear hockey gods:

When I said I enjoyed watching a SCF game that I didn't have a vested interest in, that was not a suggestion that this happen on a regular basis.  The Wings can make the finals (and win) every single year and I will be ever so much more happy.  Please accept my offering of a He Who Shall Not Be Named (but you know who) sacrifice to appease you.

I'm really liking not having a vested interest in the game.  It's nice being able to just appreciate the game and not ***** about the refs.

I think we shouldn't vote at all if it comes down to two Wings.   :lol:
