#2304307 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

Posted by vladdy16 on 31 May 2012 - 12:04 PM

I feel like he and his family probably walked out to the parking lot, got in a spaceship and flew home to whatever hockey god planet he came from.

No, he can't do that. The plan all along has been to marry his sons off to Yzerman's daughters.

You can't say enough about Lidstrom. I've only been this attached to three players: Lids, Yzerman, and Vladdy. *sniff* I'll never let myself love again.

Dear God, why do you let NBC broadcast these games? Please get us new annoucers.

NJ playing pretty strong thus far. Lots of net presence and good battles against the boards.

And Fraser scores as I post - 1 zip Kings.

I'm betting the Preds are going to lose, so I called in the donation to Ilitch Charities from the Paypal account; checks go in the mail tomorrow.

Our grand total is $264.39. Way to go, LGW! Very nice amount, especially considering the limited opportunities to pad the bill.

Again, thanks so very much to all who participated. Hopefully next year I'll take you all for a lot more money. :)

I was going to go ahead and send in the donation in spite of waiting on one more since they haven't responded to my PM, but I think I might kick in a little sumpin' sumpin' if Nashville loses the series to Phoenix, so I'm holding out for now if that's okay with everyone.

I don't have a total yet - I'm waiting on one more donation. I can tell you we went over $200!

We have a thread going in General Discussion called Operation Dumbo Drop for easy searching. There are several of us who are going to keep everyone updated as soon as information is released and will score as many tickets as possible as the occasion arises.

And it's never too early. :)

If Weber wins, I hope someone celebrates by cracking him over the head with the trophy.

#2297220 Thanks, Matt!

Just taking a second here to thank Matt and the rest of the LGW staff for another great LGW.com season of Red Wings hockey. Cheers to you all for all the hard work that you do to keep this great site running! :beerbuddy:

You deserve a huge thank you for all the time and effort you put into those awesome game day threads. Two gillyfoes!!

This is the paypal address?

It is.

Im only in $5 for the Tuzzi fight.

Thanks for doing this again, this is my favorite part of the playoffs now.

Very cool! Thanks so much for pledging.

Just sent you $25, even though I was only in for $11. Thanks for organizing - next year will be better!

Yeah, I'm really hoping to clean you guys out one of these days. :)

I can't thank everyone enough for being a part of this. :clap:

Ah the usuall on an LGW gameday thread... Bunch of people bitching, pissing, and moaning because no one around them wants to hear it!

Please limit your posts to commenting on the game, not the thread. If it's not your idea of a good thread, actually contribute something to it to make it that way.

Thank God for CBC. I couldn't take NBC anymore. Should have known better to begin with.

#2286270 Predators fans boo Zetterberg

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 April 2012 - 12:16 PM

i want a video of z grabbing webers head and the crowd going nuts about it

I can't tell you how hard I laughed at that. That is avatar-worthy material if anyone has the video.

I'd like a Preds fan to explain the crowd rather than just say well, so what. Maybe they're just misunderstood.

That irritates me to no end. He worked his ass off while with the Wings. He played through the playoffs with a tear in his right rotator cuff.

He'd still be a Wing if not for the salary cap.

Agreed. He came, he played his best, and went where he could get a long-term deal. I bear no ill will, and thought he was great in the playoffs, other than a lack of scoring. He created lots of plays.

#2284266 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 April 2012 - 09:55 AM

I don't understand how people are angrier at Webber then they are at the Red Wings lack of response. I sure am glad I got to watch hockey when it was good! Get some of the classics kids, or take up Lacrosse.

Don't even try it. This is NOT classic hockey. I've been watching since 1968; I never saw anything like this happen. It was always man-to-man. Elbows, stickwork, that kind of thing, but grabbing your opponent's head and banging it into the boards, never. Good physical hockey is great. This isn't hockey.
Go watch WWE.

I'm as geeked about Helm as the next guy - I just really, really hope he's not rushing this comeback. Better to wait another game or two and be in it for the long haul than tweak it again and be out longer.
