Happy Thanksgiving to all those residing in the US and those US citizens who are unable to be at home!

#2229251 11/23 GDT: Flames 3 at Red Wings 5

Posted by vladdy16 on 23 November 2011 - 10:00 PM

Awesome freakin' game! Calgary came to play in the first, and then reminded me why I wish they'd fall off the face of the planet in the 3rd.
Howie was a stud once again; Pavel is returning to form and Homer goes to his backhand! In other shocking news, Ericcson struggles again this game. I fear greatly for our defense when the unspeakable happens.

*Edit* Forgot to give mad props to White - 13 stitches and a broken bone and the man only misses 4 games? Two huge gillyfoes, Ian.

I didn't say I wanted 8 games, I said if Shanny hasn't taken his foot off the suspension pedal it would be 8 games and is based in part on post-game discussion. However, stevekrause is correct; 8 games would be based on repeat offender status, which I failed to take into account. Personally I would have rather seen the Wings score 3 goals on the ensuing 5 minute PP rather than any suspension, but.........

I about lost my freakin' mind when I saw that hit. Thank God all the doors and windows were shut because there were some serious epithets flying. I can't believe he came back the next period; what a beast. My head would still be ringing.
If Shanny stays true to form, my guess would be 8 games.


#2222933 This team screams for a trade

I'm not racist. Some of my best friends are asian. But not many asians play hockey. It was a non-racist joke my friend. Lets loosen up a little bit. The world doesn't revolve around you and hudler.

If it was a joke, it was a piss-poor joke. Maybe it was the timing. Maybe the delivery. Maybe it just wasn't funny. Maybe you could try a little harder next time? And maybe you should loosen up a bit as well.


#2218042 Pronger injured after high-stick

So you're lecturing the lecturer?

No one openly said they were happy, but it's a surprisingly callous response from hockey fans when a player takes a stick to the eye. Like saying he should use ice and motrin.

At the risk of moralizing, don't expect better from any other team's fans when one of our players gets hurt.

I never saw a stick hit him in the eye. The video does not support that that I can tell. His left hand grabs the right side of his head. There is NOTHING thus far to indicate a serious injury and the need to start a prayer vigil. I have also stated I would retract my former comment if the need arose. Please get off my back or I'll cancel your membership to my website! :P

I loathe Chris Pronger. I hope he's not seriously injured, but I still loathe him. I can hate you and hope you don't die all at the same time.

I'm all for hoping he doesn't die. When that puck hit him in the chest, I didn't realize it caught him in the heart and made it stop. I was at the game and saying something like "Oh, suck it up, you pansy. You can dish it out but you can't take it." Then I heard his heart stopped and knew I had just made my reservation for the second circle of hell.

THAT circumstance deserved care and concern. This is NOT the Stevy Y hit against Calgary. Those of us who aren't rustling up a whole lot of sympathy remember his Homer sandwich in the playoffs. He has a lot of karma coming back at him. If you're going to get all worked up over everything that happens to him, you'd best get comfy.

If it's not a heart-stopping puck to the chest, I find it difficult to work up a whole lot of sympathy.
The video is pretty choppy for me, but it looks like the puck caught him in the ear. His left hand goes to the right side of his head. That's gotta hurt, Bob.

I've watched it 5 or 6 times, but it skips quite a bit. From I can tell, it looks like the puck hits him going past. There is no blood on his jersey or the ice, no one is holding a towel to his face. He falls quickly, but you have to admit that's not surprising. From what I could see and hear, my perception remains the same; he's not seriously injured, and damn that had to hurt. If there's a better angle or the current video isn't so choppy at a later date and it proves otherwise, I'll retract my statement and issue one appropriate for the circumstances. Until then, lots of ice and Motrin.

Stay classy Wings fans. :thumbdown:

He dropped like a ton of bricks and you can hear him screaming as he goes into the dressing room holding his face. Clearly this was more than a little cut.

I don't wish him ill and I'm not thrilled he got hit with a puck, but it didn't hit him in the face, so there's no danger of a broken jaw or orbital bone, so he'll be okay. It also didn't sound like he was "screaming" getting off the ice, even though the announcer says so. All I heard was a few "ah, ah, ah"s. He's fine. I'll bet money on it. Maybe a few stitches, but I don't think there's even any chance of concussion on that one, hence pretty much a lack of sympathy other than an "Ouch, that had to hurt" kind of thing.

That pic and the implied facepalm are instant classics in my book. :)

I'm going to this game against my better judgement because it's Pavel Bobblehead night, otherwise I wouldn't waste my time watching the Nucks after their disgraceful performances last year. I have no insight one way or the other, I'll just be screaming my fool head off in section 207.

GO WINGS!!

Please do not turn this into a Bertuzzi/Moore thread. Let's keep the discussion in the present.


#2213494 Tell the Illitch Family to Drop "Presented by Amway"

Posted by vladdy16 on 08 October 2011 - 07:25 PM

I think we all understand the cold, harsh realities of corporate sponsorship; very, very few would have an issue if Ford or almost any other company were sponsors. Well, maybe except for Wal-Mart. :) Amway is seen as a very shady company and not an appropriate sponsor for an organization that has a sterling reputation.

And the reason no one can name anyone else's sponsor is because they are not loaded onto the logo at every available opportunity.

Maybe Matt can design an LGW shirt with the Amway logo with a red line through it. :)

Oh. My. God. This thread is a train wreck. PLEASE read Jedi's post; read the forum guidelines. There's so much wrong it here it's not even close to being funny.
