#2376245 Iginla Traded to Pittsburgh

Posted by vladdy16 on 29 March 2013 - 08:57 PM

No, Calgary had a deal in place with Boston, Calgary thought they were trading him there and Boston thought they were getting him.  Iginla chose Pittsburgh instead, it was that simple and was communicated clearly as such straight from Calgary GM and Boston GM. 

I wasn't there so I don't know, but if true, this was a real punk move on Iginla's part.  I wouldn't be surprised in the least, though. I really have no respect for the guy.  All the more reason to root for Boston now, especially when they play the Pens. (Yeah, like there wasn't reason enough already)

So white smoke means DeKeyser picked a team and black smoke means 6 more weeks of winter?

Good move for the Pens, not such a good move for us.  I'm glad, glad I tell you, that we didn't score Iginla.  I can't stand that SOB, and the price was too damn high to get him anyway.

I think people are so frustrated with the lack of splashy moves on the part of Holland that each time some serviceable player goes elsewhere, it just makes them foam at the mouth that much more.  

Iginla is not a big loss to us - helpful, probably, but not a big loss.  The reason it's a bad move for us is because we will be facing a pretty well-stacked team consistently starting next year.  While I agree that the Wings have been impressive all things considered, no one can deny that we need to improve in some areas, and PDQ.

I'm petitioning Matt to bring Murph in as LGW's next Mod.

Would that not be freakin' AWESOME?

All right, folks, this is a game day thread, not a "respond to the member who only shows up when Minny actually does something" thread.

Okay, let's get back to the game and not addressing other members, please.

His hit was worse than Perry's. Just proving a point about the arrogance around here.

And that sledgehammer you're using is winning you friends and serious internet cool points.

#2363258 Ryan O'Reilly signs offer sheet with Calgary, Avs match

Posted by vladdy16 on 01 March 2013 - 02:02 PM

Apparently O'Reilly would have had to pass through waivers before joining the Flames.

So this was basically the dumbest move ever by a GM.

Brian Burke and Garth Snow would like to talk to you.

As a general hockey fan, this is awesome for the fans.  They went through some things no fan of any sport should have to go through. 

As a Wings fan, ***** *** ******* ******** ***** **** **** ******* **** ****.

Okay, Danny's injury is my fault - when Q got hurt, I thought "Now all LGW needs is for Cleary to get injured and they can relax."  


Hoisted by his own petard.  Poor bastard can't catch a break; he's not even safe from himself.

Why is Pavel the only one who understands what "dump and chase" means?

#2356759 Howard = Average

Posted by vladdy16 on 17 February 2013 - 03:00 PM

until this site decides to crack down on people who are obviously trolls, all threads devolve into this. i don't care if this gets me in trouble for saying this, but this site has turned into a garbage heap of terrible posters. i know sites have to try and be open to anyone, but it makes for a terrible environment for honest and genuine discussion. the day that matt instructs to moderators to crack down on trolling will be the day that lgw takes 50 steps forward as a hockey board.



as far as the thread is concerned, i will reiterate that howard is a well above average goalie. 'elite' is such a loaded term these days in all sports. but jimmy is one of the better goalies in the league, and one of the most valuable and skilled players on our team.


the defense is atrocious this season and has been for several years. do we have anyone that would be considered a shut down defenseman? have we for a few years? even lidstrom wasn't the best in his own end the last couple seasons. stuart was a strong shut down guy for yeasr, but seemed to be mentally checked out last year so even that didnt help.

Define trolling.  I understand your POV completely, but the day we start deleting threads because we don't consider them discussion-worthy is the day we get crap for being fascists and violating free speech.  It's  a no-win situation for the powers that be.  It would be VERY  helpful for others to start what they consider more appropriate topics and refrain from posting in those that don't interest them; the thread will die a natural death.  (Please respond via PMs!  Thanks)


Now, to discuss the de-evolution of this thread.  It has jumped the shark.  If if doesn't improve promptly, it will be deleted.

OooOoOoOOoO Franzen scored a goal, now he is Omnipotent! He is a Sniper! He is our Saviour! He still sucks, he is still lazy and he still is not better than Hossa or Perry...even Scott Parker scored a goal once in awhile...

Good sweet Jesus, is it humanly impossible for you to post about anything other than Franzen?

#2350936 Zetterberg's Great But...

Posted by vladdy16 on 03 February 2013 - 10:03 PM

I'm sorry, I must have missed it; I thought for sure this was a thread about Zetterberg.  


If you want to discuss anyone else at length, please start a thread about it.
