#2176240 (1) Vancouver Canucks vs. (2) San Jose Sharks

Posted by vladdy16 on 16 May 2011 - 03:41 PM

Hey, I am 100% on the Nucks bandwagon, but it sure looked to me like San Jose played just as well if not better than Vancouver. Admittedly I didn't watch the whole game - it was too close for my comfort. I'm being a whiny ***** - I don't want to see good hockey in this series; I want to see Vancouver do unspeakable things to San Jose.


#2176169 Money On The Board - Playoff Style

Posted by vladdy16 on 16 May 2011 - 09:37 AM

With 7 people still left to chip in, our current total for Children's Hospital is $720.40!!! Several people have added a little extra to their pledges - thank you!

You all rock.


#2174981 Congratulations to the Sharks

Posted by vladdy16 on 13 May 2011 - 11:04 AM

Thanks for all the heart felt congratulations.

We wouldn't presume to tell you how to feel. You tell us. Did you feel worse losing to the Sharks in a short 5 game series like last year or after getting your hopes up and then crushed in a 7 game series like this year?



I don't know. How does it feel being a ****, ****?

Oh, remember this too, your cute little franchise started the exact same year our consecutive playoff run started. A little insight there. I will hide behind all the possible past things I can ;) But your team will get s*** stomped in a Conference Final again. So then you can tell us how that felt :thumbup:

Sharks fans thumping their chests is also very very laughable. Look at your Captain. Represents about as much of that team as anyone can really say.


I was toying with the idea of closing this thread because it would have been easier than sorting through all the posts that should have been deleted, but I'm thinking since EasyMark has lived up to his name and set himself up on a tee for Wings fans, it's open season.
Have at it, Wings fans; no warnings or suspensions from me, although I can't speak for Matt or any other mods.


#2170694 Wow... Ryan Clowe will not play in Game 6

Posted by vladdy16 on 10 May 2011 - 10:42 AM

Clowe bounced right back up after that hit and played the entire game. It's kind of hard to believe he has a concussion. However, He Who Shall Not Be Named played, what, a couple of games after allegedly getting a concussion? Tough call. It may not be a concussion, but I'm not buying the "flu-like symptoms." That's a smoke screen for sure.


#2168469 Nashville vs. Vancouver

Posted by vladdy16 on 07 May 2011 - 08:11 PM

I agree with that, way more so than Nashville is. Reversed roles from round one, then it was the Canucks who had a real opponent and Detroit was under matched. Anyway, to Chairman... I think Wings fans are just as PO'd as I am about how their series has gone, I wanted a Detroit/Vancouver WCF :ranting:

Regardless of your disappointment, I'm sure you can find better ways to express it. Wings are our team - if we want to rag on them, that's our right. However, we don't take too kindly to guests in our home being less than diplomatic.


#2166977 Bring back the minus rating!

Posted by vladdy16 on 05 May 2011 - 02:26 PM

thank you, granted my sample size isn't that large (only about 3 or 4 requests), but this is the first time that a mod actually gave me a suggestion to a solution instead of blowing me off, I appreciate it

You're welcome. Now where's my "+"? :lol:


#2166944 Bring back the minus rating!

Posted by vladdy16 on 05 May 2011 - 01:15 PM

I apologize if I've missed a topic that didn't belong in GD - it's something I try to stay on top of. Matt likes the forums organized.

Yes, we do miss things sometimes, but if you tell anyone I said that, I'll deny it. We're a pretty democratic bunch, though. If one mod isn't sure about something, they'll put it to the rest of us and get a consensus.

The only thing I can suggest about this topic is that you PM Matt and ask him if he'll turn it into an announcement - that will bring it to member's attention without being in GD.


#2166927 Bring back the minus rating!

Posted by vladdy16 on 05 May 2011 - 12:41 PM

and why does it not belong in "General" Discussion, where the majority of the users visit exclusively (you know, the ones who would vote and give their input)

I think the power trips on here as to what gets merged, deleted, moved, etc... is very arbitrary on this board and very rarely seems to have any continuity...

but that's fine, move a topic which brought up a genuine concern to an annex sub-board of LGW where almost no one is likely to see it <_<

General Discussion
Discuss the Detroit Red Wings, NHL, or hockey in general here!


OMG! Whatever was I thinking pulling a thread that has nothing whatsoever to do with hockey from a portion of the forum dedicated to hockey and moving it to a place appropriate for all topics?
Yeah, that's one heck of a power trip I'm on.


#2166908 Bring back the minus rating!

Posted by vladdy16 on 05 May 2011 - 12:13 PM

As the topic states, what do you guys think?

I VERY rarely ever used it, but there have been some posts lately that could REALLLLLLY use a minus...

Mods - please do not kill this thread, or move it, or delete it... I think as posters on this board, we should have some input on topics like this...

Put it where it belongs to begin with and it won't be moved. This does not belong in GD.

Members have as much input here as anywhere else, and usually more. The "-" was taken away because it was being abused and creating a lot of unnecessary hard feelings. It's up to Matt whether to reinstate it or not.


#2165574 Going to the Bolts game tonight...

I wore my Wings jersey to games when I was a Sharks STH. No one said boo.

NEW LINES!

Franzen-Datsyuk-Holmstrom
Bertuzzi-Zetterberg-Cleary
Abdelkader-Filppula-Hudler
Draper-Helm-Eaves

That 4th line especially. I've been calling for that forever it seems. I'd like to see Helm have someone on his line that is almost as fast as he is that can actually shoot on goal.


#2164193 2011 Round 2 Photoshop War: San Jose Sharks

Posted by vladdy16 on 02 May 2011 - 11:53 AM

It's amazing how being down 2 games in a series brings out the worst in people. OPPOSING TEAMS' FANS ARE MORE THAN WELCOME AT LGW. I cannot emphasize this enough. If they are trolling, please, please, please report them; otherwise, they are welcome guests here. And honestly, some of the Sharks fans have added more to this one thread than many members have contributed in their entire tenure here. Treat them as you wish to be treated, or you will be the one asked to leave.


#2163916 WCSF Game 2 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Sharks 2

Posted by vladdy16 on 01 May 2011 - 08:47 PM

We rested for 9 days? rofl

This team is over matched, plain and simple.

I cannot overstate how much I disagree with this. We are being completely and embarrassingly outplayed, but in no way are we overmatched. The Wings just need to play the way only they know how.
I, for one, hope Howard walked into that locker room and smacked each and every one of his team mates upside the head.

You know the only thing that always kills big sharks in the wild is the Orca Whale right?

Cute, but now is not the time to tease - you'll just rile people up.

Have Homer embellish some calls

It can't be Homer - refs won't call anything short of decapitation for him.
