#2541717 10/17 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Maple Leafs 1

Posted by vladdy16 on 17 October 2014 - 12:40 PM

Beautiful GDT!  Classic.  


Didn't think this merited it's own thread, but:

UPDATE: The ‪#‎RedWings‬ have signed Tyler Bertuzzi to a three-year entry-level contract.

For the record, Matt has access to every post or thread that is deleted.  There is nothing mods can remove that can't be reviewed by Matt.

I can't add a lot to what harold has already said, but I will chime in with sometimes posts are deleted because they're responding to a post that needed to be deleted and to leave it would make no sense.

I deleted a whole page from the Howard thread.  I knew that thread was going to be trouble the minute it was started, but did what I could to keep it alive because it had the potential to be a good discussion.  I will guarantee that I personally have never deleted a post simply because I disagreed with the opinion stated therein.  If I delete a post, more often than not it's because it contains a personal attack, or more recently contains information Matt would prefer not be available on LGW for legal reasons.  Personally I would rather refute an opinion than delete it.  If we all thought the same way, it would make for poor discussion.

Another suggestion I'd like to make is to PLEASE PM a mod if you have any questions or concerns - don't post in GD threads.  It will be deleted because it's off topic (not the place for those types of conversations), not because we're power-hungry.  Seriously, cleaning up off topic or personal attack posts is not in my top ten ways to spend an evening.

Please express your opinions about the game, not about other posters, their ability to see, whether they ever actually watched a hockey game before, their parentage or whether they're the briefs or boxers type.

While the Wings got jobbed on the no call, they had plenty of chances to win this game beforehand.  Pretty exciting game though, and YAY, no injuries.  That in itself is a win.

#2538210 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by vladdy16 on 03 October 2014 - 08:02 PM

In an interview during intermission tonight Babcock was asked about not having a contract.  The highlights are:

  • He's talked to Scotty, who replied that he was in the final year of his contract every year and he loved it.
  • Babs is excited about the younger look of the team.  It was painful for him to watch us last year because we were so slow.
  • His youngest is out of school, so he's in a good position.
  • The Wings have been very good to him and treated him very well.
  • There is nowhere else he wants to be.

Saw this after the period ended, so I don't know if it's on or not because it's all commercials right now, but if it's on, it's here.  It's the official Wings radio station, so you may want to bookmark FFR.

If Justin bieber didn't act like a spoiled little pompous ass everywhere he went, he wouldn't get made fun of so much. actually I can't tell if it's mocking bieber or leafs fans lol

I believe 55fan was insinuating it was cruel to the Leafs fans.  :)

I don't care.  I am bereft.  I hope Sportsnet goes belly up.  


I'm still in the anger phase of grief over losing the CBC hockey broadcast.

I think Pens fans would accept him.  Don't forget that the Wings hired him from Anaheim two years after he swept Detroit in the first round with a much less talented squad.

I think Cleary's trying to avoid detection.  He's changed from 71 to 17 in hopes that no one will realize it's him.  :lol:

Not only were the Wings the first to use the quote, theirs is properly punctuated.

When are people going to stop paying any attention whatsoever to ESPN, especially when it comes to hockey?  When I want to know about poker championships, I'll turn to ESPN.

Look no further than their vote for the Number 1 worst team in North America: The Toronto Maple Leafs.  Seriously?  While they have indeed struggled mightily in recent years (decades), they are far from the worst.  I don't care what the criteria was, ESPN is dead-ass wrong.  As usual.

I liked 55fan's idea of the Las Vegas Crapshooters.
