I can't be the only guy who think Ian White kinda looks like Jack Nicholson.

Mrazzle Dazzle will be #1 star many more times this season, I believe. And I am a dirty ol' lady for how much I love Dylan Larkin right now.  Tough, savvy kid.  He's truly Red Wings to the core.  Thank you, hockey gods~


More Wings and things tomorrow, carry the momentum forward, boyz....

#2636116 Devils Sign Tootoo

Frank, no one has any idea exactly what was said by Burrows. However, there is a line, even when trash talking, and for all we know, he very well could have crossed that line. If he was chirping anything to do with his brothers suicide, that is a line you just don't cross, and I hope Tootoo pounds Burrows face in next time they meet. There are some things you just don't bring up in trash talking, on or off the ice. I was never a fan of Tootoo in Nashville, prior to his short stint in Detroit, however the guy is a class act. Burrows on the other hand, is an a**hat. F*** Burrows...

Was at the game tonight, probably the most exiting 1-0 game I have ever seen in person! Kindl really impressed me, while he didn't show up on the score sheet, he definitely helps generate offense which is something we need from a d-man.


We looked good, but something is just not clicking. I feel like we are close though. I cant even count how many times we make a pass but it either bounces over a stick, is just wide, hits a skate, hits a stick etc.

#2632781 Achieving Perspective

Posted by Aethernum on 23 October 2015 - 11:50 PM

If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
But make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet don’t look too good, nor talk too wise;

If you can dream—and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with triumph and disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to broken,
And stoop and build ‘em up with wornout tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: “Hold on”;

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings—nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run—
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!


-Rudyard Kipling




In the last 10 years, when the Red Wings have gone on a losing streak of 4+ games, they have averaged 13.5333 points in the following 10 games. That includes instances where one 4+ game losing streak was followed by a win and another 4+ game losing streak. Treating those instances as combined long losing streaks would give them an average of over 14 points in the following 10 games.


They have only needed to average 1.29 points per game in order to make the playoffs in the salary cap era, which they have done every single year.


You have to be willing to lose in order to truly appreciate victory. Coaches get paid the money that they do to achieve the perspective to take the good with the bad, make appropriate adjustments, and not overreact to the natural ups and downs of a team. That said, it would be nice if the fans could aspire to that same perspective.


We are without our best player. We are under a new coach. We are, on average, young. We are seven games into the season.


The sky is not falling.

It's kind of funny to think that Abdelkader has the exact amount of points as the entire Penguins' roster put together thus far, and Zetterberg has 2 more than that.

It's back! Due to popular demand I'm bringing back the monthly LGW Schedule Wallpapers for download. I've limited the resolutions options a bit (6 for now), but I'm open to adding a few as well as long as the size is reasonably popular. Hope you guys like them! I plan on going back to the different-player-per-month lineup I've done in years past.

#2628475 Dylan Larkin on opening night roster

Posted by Jasper84 on 05 October 2015 - 05:03 PM

I know a lot of people have been saying lately how they'd like to see him sent down and develop there and that's understandable. Personally though, I think this was the right decision and I hope he gets to stay. My reason for this is that I like the idea that he can learn from Pavs and Hank before they are gone - what better centers to learn from???


Very happy for Larkin. He's going to have a long and fantastic Detroit Red Wing career.
