#2303310 Who's going to make it big if anyone?

Posted by luvmnger on 25 May 2012 - 11:45 PM

I'll be the 1st to admit that I'm not the most informed when it comes to Red Wing prospects, but from what I've seen/read - there's not alot of high-end talent coming up...I really do hope I'm wrong.


And to think the Oilers with all their top picks may become a top-end team for several years while our beloved Red Wings slowly slide down the ranks...Retro 80's anyone?

well you can keep that little tid bit to yo-self, pal. we dont speak like that up here. hehehehe.

we're like France ....it never happened.

#2280378 Wings recall Chris Conner

Posted by luvmnger on 08 April 2012 - 06:12 PM

Conner in my opinion is a smaller Helm. he flies on the ice, agitates opponents, and goes way too fast for his own hands at the goal.

stick him in the phone booth with Pavel and teach him control.

i like the call up!

replace Emmerton.

somebody anger Franzen. tell him Rinne kicked his puppy.


#2275672 Clarifying Doomsday 2012

Posted by luvmnger on 30 March 2012 - 04:38 PM

Additional dates from the leap year aside, the world won't end anyway. The only thing that worries me about that date is all the lunatics in this world that might do something terrible and end up causing bodily harm.

there lies the real threat....no matter what happens....idiots will freak out and cause prices to skyrocket for fuel/water/bread...etc.

for example..the tv show "magic city" was building its set, they bought every sheet of plywood across 4 states. florida/georgia etc.

here in new mexico the shortage caused a $2 per sheet increase.


this will be trouble for us all.

#2252129 Who Could be Dealt at the Deadline?

Posted by luvmnger on 04 February 2012 - 09:34 PM

ok...my two cents...
using math and a quantum physic/chaos algorithm i have deduced who we will get.

first lets look at the numbers....

roy #9 that wont work....
gaustad #28
ruuttu #15
gagner #89
jvr #21
moen #32
visnovsky #17
hemsky #83
macarthur #16 no one wears that number here....
kulemin #41
carter #7 terrible ted will have your head if you touch his number...
morrow #10 you tell Delvecchio you need that number...
smyth #94
selanne #8
parise #9 mr. howe isnt gonna let you wear that here....
elias #26
semin #28
malone #12 yea...try and pry it from the rafters pal...
moore #19 yea...several reasons why not...
sutton #25
gill #75
b. allen #5 more reasons why not...
b.ryan #9 not gonna wear that here...
huselius #20

all adds up to 602 (removing the insolent players)
using the specialized formula we end up with 24.535688
of course you cant put that on a jersey so we will round up and acquire sutton #25 at the deadline.


bank it.


yea...i was bored. stupid late faceoffs.

#2251227 Punishment for throwing octupus on the road

Posted by luvmnger on 02 February 2012 - 04:06 AM

i used the "grenade" style while in phoenix when bertuzzi scored the shootout winner.

everyones hands went in the air, i threw it up from behind me and continued the upward motion with "high fives" to everyone around me.

the problem that occured was the buddy next to me went closer to get pictures and the security swarmed him and held all of us for "questioning"

during this time they never once looked my way with any questions.

one security guard had a serious bug up his ass, assumed that since my friend was so interested in getting a photo,(which he didnt get to) that he must be guilty.

my friend, of course egged the guard on with, so columbo, you saw me,huh?, and where did i keep the creature on my person? would my hands have some strange smell to them? you do realize that the guilty one is getting away, dont you? etc....then mid questioning, they changed it to, dead animal. so the cops would be more inclined to stick around.

4 security guards, 3 cops, and 20 minutes of video review couldn't figure out who threw it.

the police apologized, and then chewed out the security guard for wasting his time with this dribble.

so, there you have my adventure....be a ninja, or dont do it at all.

big brother is watching.

#2104225 Wings Have To Toughen Up Soon

Posted by luvmnger on 24 January 2011 - 11:07 AM

the old wings had fighters that also contributed, and avoided the "stupid" penalties.

while i do enjoy the cup wins, i also favor the gritty edge a "smart" enforcer brings and would sacrifice a role player to fill this gap.

lucic, and konopka come to mind.

every year we get abused in the late season and playoffs, and this takes its toll. what if someone jumped malkin after his attack on Z and beat him down, causing the mandatory game suspension for both?

malkin had 2 goals in the game 6 that changed the momentum.

or what about the spearing of lidstrom during the blackhawk game?

enforcers change the game to a degree, they don't prevent injuries, but they keep the cheap shots at bay. players don't run goalies all game long if we have an enforcer watching over the herd.

would kostopolos have run stuart if he knew he was going to get run down later that game? who knows. but i think his mindset would have been slightly altered if D-mac was rotating shifts and collecting teeth.

i love the domination of our wings team, but i hate seeing cheap s*** hits to wear down or sideline our players for the long haul. checking is designed to wear players down by nature, but the little extra, needs to stop.

so, to summarize...the wings don't need a goon, they need a heart and soul with a big bag of knuckles and a knack for scoring more than once every 9 months.

these players don't grow on trees, i know, but they still exist, and we need to step up and get one.
