#2431296 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 23 July 2013 - 03:49 PM

 

I'm not a Tootoo fan which I'm sure is part of it, but still he has a very specific role and skillset.  And 3 years at $1.9 million for what he brings 9-12 minutes a night is overpayment to me. 

There is no way 1.9mil for what tootoo brings is over payment. He just needs to be used.

#2427416 Wings sign Stephen Weiss, 5-years, $24.5m

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 05 July 2013 - 03:52 PM

Check out his playoff game stats last year. The year before that too.

you thought tootoo was signed on to be our scorer for the playoffs? He was signed for the grit and toughness and thats what he brings every game. for the life of me of don't get why come game 5 in the hawks series babs didn't put him in after shaw and those goons did what they did to the wings. tootoo is nothing but heart.

Props to Holland.

I am his biggest critic. But he is doing SOMETHING this offseason that has a chance to help us. I could see Sammy and Tootoo were bad signings a mile away. I thought Colo was ok, but DeKeyser, Smith, and Kindl emerging made that one bad too.

Anyway, good job Kenny. I throw my hat, because you just turned a trick = DeKeyser, Alfredsson, Weiss.

tootoo was not a bad signing at all. i would love to see why so many think so. specially going to the east now.




#2426836 Stephen Weiss on his way?

DET closing in on Stephen Weiss.




#2426789 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 05 July 2013 - 12:27 PM

How long have you posted on LGW? hahahaha




#2426547 Wings sign Alfredsson to 1-year, $3.5m deal (+$2m bonuses)

Same people crying like always. 

 

I like it. It;s only for 1 year for a player that can still score and as we have seen in the past older player seem to thrive with the wings org. Can't wait to see him play with Dats and Z.




#2417801 New Dallas Stars uniforms

The color is not too bad but I love the older darker ones. Not a real fan of lighter green.

But that damn D and the starbuck shoulder logos just suck!!

I have to ask. Why are some so quick to buy out tootoo? I thought we wanted to get tough going into the east?

#2409315 97.1 The Ticket: Hocketown "Dead"?

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 22 May 2013 - 06:40 PM

 

They are irrelevant to game 3 sure, but they are very relevant to the way the Wings fans look at the game 3 goal...just as much as that was a game changer for us, the no goal against Anaheim was a game series changer for them.  Same situation.  The Wings have suffered enough of those blown calls that they feel its about time they got one in their favor.  That is why they aren't feeling sorry for the Chicago fans.  Welcome to the club Chicago, we feel ya, but can't reach ya!

 

Trying to get a Wings fan to change their mindset about this goal would be like trying to get a Chicago fan to change their mindset about their 1st goal...the informative fans probably say the same things about that goal as we do about theirs non-goal..."it happens, it was a missed call and Kane's goal shouldn't have even happened, but it did."  They blew that call and they blew the no goal. If they would have called the penalty before Kane's goal, they wouldn't have gotten them momentum and the no goal wouldn't have even happened...It's my opinion if the penalty was called, the game ends in a shutout... BTW, refs blew TONS of calls all game long.  I was particularly pissed at the flying elbow to Smith's chin in the 1st that wasn't even called a penalty NOR reviewed by the NHL...it was a headhunting BLATENT hit. But, he wasn't injured (or faked the injury) so it isn't suspension worthy....

Can I get an AMEN!?!




#2409183 Jokes, know any?

An elderly husband and wife visit their doctor when

they begin forgetting little things. Their doctor tells

them that many people find it useful to write

themselves little notes.

 

When they get home, the wife says, "Dear, will you

please go to the kitchen and get me a dish of ice

cream? And maybe write that down so you won't

forget?"

 

"Nonsense," says the husband, "I can remember a dish of ice cream."

 

"Well," says the wife, "I'd also like some strawberries and whipped cream on it."

 

"My memory's not all that bad," says the husband. "No

problem -- a dish of ice cream with strawberries and

whipped cream. I don't need to write it down.

 

" He goes into the kitchen; his wife hears pots and pans

banging around. The husband finally emerges from

the kitchen and presents his wife with a plate of bacon

and eggs.

 

She looks at the plate and asks, "Hey, where's the toast I asked for?"
