#2533460 Paul McCartney and the Red Wings

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 01 August 2014 - 02:06 PM

"I'm not half the man I used to be" should be one of Kenny Holland's favorite lines.  

 

 

Kenny on Lidstrom's retirement "Why he had to go I don't know he wouldn't say"

 

 

He'll still be signing Cleary 'when he's 64'.

I love the direction this thread is going. hahahaha Beatles songs relating to the wings. hahahaha




#2533294 Predictions for the DRW 2014-15 Season!

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 29 July 2014 - 01:05 PM

My prediction Dats and Z both stay hurt all season after a total meltdown failure this season where we end up last place in all of the league. The whole plan to make Detroit a better place is abandoned by Mr I and he and the wings are moved to Vegas...But I totally hope I'm wrong......... :ninja:

 

My real prediction....I think...I hope we can stay healthy. I think if we do like what was said on a previous post we end up in the middle of the east getting into the playoffs a bit easier. I still don't think we are  there yet to even consider competing for the cup but hey who am I. I hope they totally surprise me and we win it all.




#2533263 Hockey News: The 5 most evil hockey photoshops we could come up with

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 29 July 2014 - 08:42 AM

That's been said by many fans about many players, but when the goals start going in and the points are being racked up, like him or not it would be impossible not to root for him.

Impossible for you maybe..yes..Not for me. Sorry buddy. I would never like him. EVER. I would be happy if the wings won more with him sure but there is no way I like him as a player. I guess being older your feelings stick a bit easier because you start to get the "I don't give a crap" attitude.

The same could be said if he ever made his way to Detroit. 

I could honestly say I would never EVER like crosby. Yes he is a very skilled player but there just is no way I like him even if he was on the wings.

#2532892 Jim Paek leaves Griffs to help run Korean Hockey

We're so bad, that people would rather go to North Korea than work with the Wings.

#2532866 Jim Paek leaves Griffs to help run Korean Hockey

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 23 July 2014 - 09:50 AM

In the last two years, the organization has lost:

Paek

Anastas

Renney

Peters

Nill

McDonald

Leach

 

Do other organizations have this much turnover?  It might be totally normal, I've just never thought to follow it until now.  Seems like a lot of high profile personnel to lose in a short span. 

Didn't you know? The Redwings org has lost its shine. no one wants to be here anymore. It's only a matter of time before the fans start leaving.




#2532235 Red Wings & the Media

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 16 July 2014 - 10:45 AM

 

I read Drew Sharp all the time.  I don't agree with you. 

Are you a UofM fan?

 

It is well known that he always write negative articles not only about UofM but the whole state of Michigan and Michigan sports. It;s one thing to be objective but to go to the lengths that he does to talk bad about all of Michigan sports is a bit much. I understand his thing is to take the unpopular stand on all subjects but he goes over a lot.

 

 

example of him trying to start something but gets smacked down.

Drew Sharp is a d-bag who DOES in fact troll all things UofM. If you think otherwise then you haven't really seen him in action.

#2526578 NHL Draft 2014: Rounds 2-7 **MOD WARNING POST 51**

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 28 June 2014 - 11:32 AM

This is/was a bad prospect pool and everyone knew this going in. It is not a good draft at all. last year was great, next year is good. This year is below average. That is not on Holland. he took a very good player at 15 that should end up somewhere between Legwand and kesler. Legwand is 6-2/205 and scores 15 g 40 points per year. Kesler is 6-2/205 and puts up 25 g and 60 points per year. larkin will be in that range somewhere.

damn even richdg can spin a positive out of this draft. take notes folks=)




#2521443 Abdelkader ejected for "vicious" hit at World Championships

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 22 May 2014 - 02:30 PM

For starters, that writer is an idiot.  It wasn't late and he didn't leave his feet before contact.  Part of the reason the hit was so vicious is Sobotka was still following through on his shot and couldn't protect himself.  People need to stop watching gifs and slow motion replays and actually watch the video at regular speed.  

 

I don't know about international standards but by NHL rules the only issue is the strides he took before the hit. That could make it charging.  To me it looks like he's hustling back to make a play then veers into the hit, but it gave him a whole lot of momentum and made this hit a nasty one.

 

As for the rest, he does contact the head but he makes solid contact through the body.  That's legal in the NHL because of the solid body contact (I don't know about international rules).  He doesn't leave his feet before contact.  

 

If Sobotka gets up, it's likely nothing happens here.  Even if it were in the NHL though, because Sobotka doesn't get up it's likely getting a suspension.

Geez what did fans do before when hits like these were very legal and there were no questions.....

Sarah Connors ‏@sarah_connors 9h

Sarah Connors ‏@sarah_connors 9h

guys are such huge babies about their junk, good lord

 

Sarah Connors ‏@sarah_connors 9h

i hope a guy gets speared in the junk every game from now on until forever. And I will laugh about it every time. f*** off.

Funny how she talks bad about guys when she clearly is trying to look like one.
