#2505343 % chance of making the playoffs

How the hell does 93.7% sound??? YEAH BABY

#2503441 Do you want monster to start tomorrow?

Posted by nawein on 30 March 2014 - 02:45 AM

Nah. Howie needs the rest and we always seem to step up offensively when he's in instead of Jimmy. Plus I'd rather have Monster in against Tampa than Buffalo or Carolina since those are definitely all must wins. Monsters style scares me to death but he's been effective this year. Hopefully we can bring home another W tomorrow.

#2421325 Saddledome Under Water

The team and the stadium are all washed out.

#2399224 WCQF Game 5 GDT: Red Wings 2 @ Ducks 3 (OT) - (ANA leads series 3-2)

Posted by motorcitykid on 08 May 2013 - 09:02 AM

A great 24 hours:
Penguins lose. Crosby crying. *check*
Canucks lose and go home, the overrated clowns they always are. *check*
Leafs blaming the refs for being down in their series, and Boston talking like Cup champs of 2 years ago. *check*

Tonight, I hope whatever is left of Samuelssons memory - he'd do well to remember what those two guys on his line represent. This is one of your last opportunities, Sammy. And NO wristshots to the chest, okay?
I expect every player to be ready to fight through Anaheims cheap shots and Perrys big mouth, and look to the crest on their jersey as inspiration.

Nobody thought we would make the playoffs (laughable) ... and now we are 2 W's away from a very classic matchup versus Chicago. If we play the way we did in Game 4, we can wrap this up Friday. The Duckies have NO response to our hardwork and hustle - that much is obvious.


Go Wings!!!

#2395189 Danny DeKeyser suffers broken thumb, out for playoffs

Posted by b.shanafan14 on 03 May 2013 - 09:03 AM


I hear you there, Having only 4 hours sleep I was still pumped and happy this morning, then I checked the twitter machine. I felt sick. I am over it now, I did not see the play so I don't know what happened but there were a couple of times I felt the ducks had intent to injure.... Koivu labeling kronner in the number after the whistle. You stay classy Anaheim! 


Its incredible to see the level of douchebaggery permiate the entire Ducks line up. Started with Pronger, then the supposed classy Scott Neidermeyer, then supposedly classy but always overly bitchy Teemu, and now even Saku Koivu was stepping over the line. After Abdelkader got stuffed into the boards from behind and was shaken up, Beleski was standing over him jawing until Pasha stepped in. And Souray was out of control all night with little to keep him in check.


Its incredible that the penalties were nearly even despite the fact that for about the span of a period the Ducks were in full goon mode. Its the same philosophy its always been in Anaheim: goon all you want, they refs will only call so many penalties and if we end up with one more PK then the opposition but can manage to injure or otherwise shake them, the juice was worth the squeeze.


The refs have never had the balls to call the Ducks consistently. Eventually, they worry about the PP discrepancy and put the whistles away.

#2390134 Should I take an octopus to Dallas?

Posted by 55fan on 26 April 2013 - 10:33 AM

It depends on how serious your relationship is.   Have you met her parents? 


I'm one of those old fuddy-duddys who think that octi should be reserved for the playoffs, but since this is as close as Dallas will get this year, it's kind of you to give them at least a taste of the playoff experience.


If you're really nervous about getting caught- wear a Stars jersey (get a cheap one at a thrift store) over a Wings t-shirt.  If the jersey is white and the t-shirt red, you might need a white t-shirt over the red one to camo the red.  Then once you get inside, give the Stars jersey to an underprivileged child (one whose parents haven't raised them as a Wings fan), ditch the white t-shirt (they're cheap at thrift stores) and wander about proudly wearing the Wings colours.


Or spend the game in a Stars jersey and when security asks who threw the octo, just shrug and ask them to explain icing.

#2325586 Bouwmeester opinions? Potential trades? *merged*

Posted by Guest on 16 August 2012 - 09:35 PM

I wonder if Zetterberg is a trading option. He's the guy I think would have the highest trade value. Z for Y straight up.

You're suggesting that we trade our next captain, who happens to be a very good scorer, an excellent two-way forward, and the most prolific playoff producer since the lockout, in exchange for a defenseman who can't play defense. No offense, but are all of these trade ideas jokes?

#2265364 Nystrom hit on Letang

Posted by sputman on 01 March 2012 - 10:50 AM

any kind of hit on letang is legal.

#2265093 Lidstrom to win Norris trophy?

Posted by Jedi on 29 February 2012 - 10:17 AM

I just don't see Lidstrom winning this year. There's still time, if he has a spike in offensive production, and if Weber goes down with injury (not wishing that to happen, of course), then he might win. Finalist, probably. Winner, doubtful.

Did a question mark just suddenly appear in the title? Because when I clicked on it to reply there wasn't one.

Ninja Mod wasn't quite so sneaky this time.

#2263930 2012 NHL Trade Deadline Thread - February 27th, 3:00 PM ET

I think we can compete and I like our cap space," Holland said. "If, after 60 games, we get to the (trade) deadline and are in a playoff position, we can make a deal. We haven't had that (cap space) the last couple of years.

We have cap space; we structured it at the beginning of the year that way. We'd like to give our team a bit of a boost.

I got TSN (NHLNet) going on my site. It's at a lower bitrate, so it should work even if you're work internet is kind of slow.
