#2098258 1/15 GDT: Blue Jackets 5 at Red Wings 6 (OT)

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

#2096978 Money On The Board Deetroit Style!

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 January 2011 - 11:23 AM

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.

#2072491 12/3 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Ducks 0

Posted by vladdy16 on 03 December 2010 - 09:46 PM

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.

#2063820 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by vladdy16 on 16 November 2010 - 07:04 PM

That being said, Habs fans nearly burned the city to the ground after they won one playoff series.

Imagine what Leaf fans would do to Toronto if the Leafs won the Cup.

That would be what is known as a win/win situation; Leafs win the Cup - *poof* no more Leafs fans. :)

The funny thing is, perhaps it's the blind loyalty that is keeping the leafs down. If these people wouldn't be so ready to still pay big money for tickets and everything else despite chronically being known as "Loserville," perhaps the financial pressure might force some changes to be made. To me, it's dumb to want to pay for an inferior product year after year. So no, maybe Leafs fans don't deserve better.

Yeah, that really worked for Chicago, didn't it? <_<
Times didn't get better until there was a change in ownership.

#2063795 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by vladdy16 on 16 November 2010 - 05:53 PM

Absolutely they deserve better. A long-standing, once proud franchise is in the pits of despair with no discernible way out. Much like the Hawks, once they regain some of their former glory it's back on the Public Enemy list, but for now they deserve our compassion.

#2061691 11/11 GDT: Oilers 2 at Red Wings 6

Posted by vladdy16 on 11 November 2010 - 08:58 PM

Well, I guess that Edmonton Sun writer was correct about the city of Detroit because the Oilers are getting killed!

#2033903 Who do and did you hate more?

Posted by vladdy16 on 17 September 2010 - 08:12 AM

Witherest Pronger goes, so goes my disdain; hence, no Duck hatred. I don't hate the Pens really, either, but I cannot stand He Who Shall Not Be Named, therefore the Pens are guilty by association and will suffer my dislike for a long as He is there.

There is not a word in the English language to describe all the levels of no in response to this question.

#2022952 Calgary reveals Heritage Classic jerseys

Posted by vladdy16 on 05 August 2010 - 08:56 PM

I think they're trying to ensure a win by inducing seizures on the ice with those. It's the only explanation I can think of.
