#2028422 Paul McCartney adds penguins sticker to guitar

pppfffft...sell out.


#2028380 I hate shootouts

Posted by cjm502 on 22 August 2010 - 11:26 PM

Are we sure that this isn't just coming out of the fact that Detroit stunk in the shootout last season?

Games shouldnt be decided by a skills competition, but the Wings lack of success in the shootout probably just makes the shootout hate even worse.

I hate to throw politics into the mix, but...............
Maybe Obama asked him to apply the Shizburg decal during their recent "Liberal Lovefest" at the White House.


#2028293 GDT logo

Okay. I don't want to step on any toes here. You did a great job with the GDT's last season. I'll see how it goes. But with all this in mind, perhaps I might not be the most appropriate person to take care of this stuff?

Just leave the logos on. Matt's cool with it and that's all that matters. You've probably put in dozens of hours of work into this and you deserve credit. They look great and are the main reason I began to frequent your blog last season.

HT001, to be frank, you're lucky these images are being offered to you at all. From the outside looking in, one might think you're trying to get all the credit for someone elses hard work, and that's why you want his logos removed.

beatles suck anyways, that frickin traitor. Even if he was pressured into it he should have said no, he's a knight he does what he wants.

There aren't enough minuses possible on this board for this post.


And for those who may be too young to know, McCartney had a band after The Beatles called Wings.

#2027860 Penguins sign Arron Asham

Posted by RinkRat82 on 20 August 2010 - 08:17 PM

Boof****** hoo we will have a nice 4th line and needed the vet blueliner


#2027820 Penguins sign Arron Asham

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 August 2010 - 06:32 PM

iirc Asham wanted to stay in PA/near Philly.


I hope so.

I'd hate to think he was out there for the taking and we didn't bite on it.

Because Eaves, Abdelkader, or other prospects don't fight?


Not really.

They're not in his league and I don't want to see them get injured trying.

He played better these last playoffs than either of those guys did here.


#2027601 Hawks sign Fernando Pisani, $500k

Posted by Buppy on 19 August 2010 - 10:43 PM

I love how you conveinatly leave out Miller's 14 game stint with Tampa in which he recorded NO points and was a -3. Makes you wonder how much playing on a good team with a better record influences/motivates a player, huh? In addition, despite all of Pisani's injuries and inferior linemates his stats prorated would be mearly 3 points less of Miller's total production. When you factor in ice time and linemates, Pisani would almost have certainly surpassed Miller's production.

Couple that with the fact that Pisani's goals agaisnt average per 60 min of pk time was FAR BELOW that of both Miller's and Eave's, despite being on a DRASTICALLY worse team, and it becomes harder and harder to argue that Miller outplayed him enough to warrent that much more money last year.

You are looking at simply the stat line, instead of situational statistics such as quality of oppositsiton faced (hint... Pisani was the highest on the Oilers), and quality of linemates + Ice time. I suggest you dig deeper into the stats before you throw out ones that our clearly unfair to compare.

Pisani averaged more ice time than both Miller and Eaves. And while Edmonton was certainly terrible, neither Eaves nor Miller were playing with particularly great linemates all the time. May, Maltby, Draper, Helm, Abby, Williams, Leino...not that much different from Horcoff, O'Sullivan, Moreau, Gagner, etc. Miller may have played a bit with the likes of Flip and Cleary, but you're acting like he spent the year on the top line with Pav and Hank or something.

And I'm not sure what kind of math you're doing, but Pisani was on the ice for 10 PPGA in 91:42 (~6.5/60 min). Eaves was 13 in 147:54 (5.3), Miller was 7 in 120:31 (3.6).

Pisani is 33, hasn't played more than 56 games in the past three seasons. He had one decent season and a great playoff, and has been going downhill ever since.

Miller is 26, coming off his first full season in the NHL, and makes only $150k more.

Eaves is also 26, just had somewhat of a bounce-back season after two down years, and makes only $250k more.

Not saying Pisani is terrible, or that it isn't a good signing. He's fine for a 4th line role. But I'd much rather have the younger guys without potentially problematic diseases, even if they do make a little more money.


#2027518 Hawks sign Fernando Pisani, $500k

Posted by Heaten on 19 August 2010 - 03:56 PM

So you honestly think that Pisani at 500k is no better then an AHL plug at 500k? The whole possibility of him reverting into a good player alone makes this a good signing, as the Hawks are virtually out nothing, and potentially getting a player worth far more then 500k. I know you can't really say if a signing was good or bad until the contract is up in hindsight, but us as fans should be allowed to note that a move could be potentially good, even if it was done by ....*gasp*... the Hawks. This signing reminds me a lot of the Dan Cleary and Patrick Eaves signings, and fans should not be vindicated for seeing what the Hawks were hoping in it.


This is absolutely nothing like the Cleary / Eaves deal. Not even in the slightest. I question your hockey intelligence when you say off the wall stupid stuff like this.

Cleary was 26 / 27 years old when Holland signed him; Pisani is 33 going on 34. Cleary played more games in one season than Pisani has played in the past two.

Eaves was 26 when Holland signed him; Pisani is 33 going on 34. Eaves played more games in one season than Pisani has played in the past two.

Imagine if Holland didn't re-sign Miller and Eaves, and instead used the funds to sign CheeChoo for $1 mil to round out the 4th line. LGW would have an epic meltdown, and rightfully so. But you would probably be here defending the signing because CheeChoo was awesome 4 years ago, while disregarding that his body and health is completely gone.

Your posts make no sense.

Wings win the Cup on the road or at home


Win at home, the fans deserve it, and the guys can hit the ground partying immediately, with their families and friends.

gimme-gimme right now! :yowza: or wait patiently for the payoff? :)

Funny, that's what I scream. My girlfriend hates it.
