#2116213 Isles vs Pens

Mario said

“If the events relating to Friday night reflect the state of the league, I need to re-think whether I want to be a part of it.”

This is going to be Mario's epitaph, I swear. Someone should just put this on the back of his jersey and be done with it. I'm so freakin' tired of hearing him ***** and moan about the league and threatening to take his toys and go home if it's not run just the way he likes it.
Good luck and Godspeed to you then, Mario.

LMAO - quote from post-game: "The Red Wings needed another injury like the world needs another Big Mama's House movie."

I sent my Wish Application in for the game on the 13th against Boston - it says "LetsgoWings.com supports Children's Hospital." If you're at the game, look for it on the Jumbotron between the 1st and 2nd.

#2102394 Nabokov claimed by NYI, refuses to report, suspended

Posted by vladdy16 on 21 January 2011 - 11:14 PM

This thread is about Nabokov - please keep it to that particular subject. No beers, no goalie wars, and if you "report" someone has made a claim, please cite a source.
I'd hate to have to pull this thread, but I will if I have to delete another 3 pages of irrelevant posts.

NO, NABBY NO!!! Detroit is where good goalies come to die.

#2099485 Crosby on strike

Posted by vladdy16 on 18 January 2011 - 05:28 PM

People wouldn't be bitching about the bitching if the people originally bitching actually did research before bitching.

Stop bitching about the bitching about the bitching. Now that I'm bitching someone else is going to start bitching about my bitching.

The bitching needs to stop.

Do you need a ***** slap?

Thank you, Wings, for not waiting until the 2rd or 4rd to start playing.

We are shamelessly stealing this from the Columbus fans! Let's all chip in a little (or a lot!) for a Wings win tonight and tomorrow. The Ilitch family has their own foundation, so we could donate to that OR we can donate specifically to the DRW Foundation (proceeds going to Konstantinov and Mnatsakanov and their families) for a win, or to Children's Hospital in the event of a not-so-fun outcome. I vote for the latter.

I'm kicking it off with 5 bucks. Anyone else who's in, PayPal address is wingsdiva@gmail.com.

*edit* For those who don't know me, no need to be concerned - the money will get to where it belongs. Matt knows where I live!

#2092406 Crosby Out with Mild Concussion

Well, I certainly hope they update us on his condition every 15 minutes during every game played in the NHL.

Hell, if I had whistles blowing from all directions every time I tried to do my job, I'd drink heavily too.

Plant me firmly in the "I can't stand the SOB, but" camp as well.

I'm going to talk to Matt about amending the forum guidelines to make this a punishable offense. *evil glare* Thanks for screwing the pooch, HoH.

#2082227 I'm Boycotting the Winter Classic...

Posted by vladdy16 on 21 December 2010 - 11:10 AM

HAHA! You Red Wing fans tickle me.

Next time I see Master Crosby and Master Malkin I will let them know that the Red Wing fans boycotted their winter classic game! I'm sure they will be devastated. I'm almost positive it will get one of the highest hockey ratings of all time. But hey... There are other teams out there who have two of the best players on one team.... Like Detroit, right? Who would want to see any of the teams you guys listed?? They aren't nearly as popular as the Penguins/Caps/Wings.

You're telling me you wouldn't love to see a Detroit/Pens winter classic?? I think that would be amazing!

Why would you want colorado, or ottawa or montreal or NYR?? It just doesn't make sense! You wont get a big audience and it will be a SO SO game.

And we care about as much for their opinion as they do ours.

And LMAO at your choice of teams to demonstrate not getting a big audience - seriously? Montreal and NY are 2 of the biggest markets in the league. Step off of your Penguins ice flow once in a while - there's a lot of good hockey out there.
And for the teams who don't have markets as large, it's all about exposure. No one is EVER going to care about the markets on the bubble if no one draws their attention to them. San Jose is a good team with a decent market - they could do well showcased in a Winter Classic. If the league truly wants to grow the smaller markets, they need to commit to advertising teams outside of the Pittsburgh/Washington/Detroit fanbase. Do I give a rat's ass about Phoenix? Not even close. However, the league is hell-bent on keeping them in the league and where they are, and if they are not complete idiots, they will start giving the Yotes some exposure.
In the meantime, I will be grouting tile or counting how many grains of sugar are in a 5-pound bag during the mockery that is the Winter Classic.

#2079943 Possible Winter Classic @ Comerica Park

Posted by vladdy16 on 17 December 2010 - 01:57 PM

While I LOVE the idea, I'm going to say the Wings shouldn't be in it again until other teams have had the chance. This BS of Winter Classic/Heritage Classic pisses me off. Montreal/Toronto and CO. are all in the NHL, are they not? The Winter Classic should include these teams.
If the Wings are going to be in it again before it's their turn (like someone else who shall go unnamed), then I'd kill for it to be Toronto or Montreal. My head tells me they'll do a West Coast team to try and generate interest over there, probably San Jose.

I'd like to drink beer at my water cooler but they just don't allow that Posted Image

I don't know why - beer is mostly water. :)

Expect more thuggery this game, no matter who's winning.

#2070556 LGW's favorite player slewfoots Callahan

Posted by vladdy16 on 29 November 2010 - 09:39 PM

Yep ugly slew-foot, not going to defend a play like that.

But acting like Crosby is one of the dirtiest players in the NHL is just laughable.

Ovechkin has like 3 slewfoots that are all worse than this.

I believe everyone's issue (besides yours) is that apparently the sun rises from He Who Shall Not Be Named's ass according to the league. It's embarrassing, it's blatant and extremely frustrating.
