#2243250 1/8 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Blackhawks 2 (OT)

Posted by greenrebellion on 08 January 2012 - 10:10 PM

That third period had so much action, especially towards the end. WHAT A GAME....Conks may have had a bit of rust to work off early on, but HE WAS HUGE for the last 50+ minutes of the game.


#2233214 Realignment decided - 4 Conferences

This might open the door to a European conference since you could set it up to only have a couple of road trips under the new format. Not saying I'm a fan of international expansion, but hasn't Bettman mentioned that in the past?


#2233056 Realignment decided - 4 Conferences

I must be on something, but I love this change. The return of INTENSE rivalries and divisional hatred will be astounding given the amount of times you'll see the same teams during the regular season and in the first and second round. Plus, the chance to play teams like the Canucks and Sharks in the Stanley Cup finals. Finally, the improved travel schedule should provide the wings the extra juice they need when making a deep run in the playoffs. Bravo Bettman, one of the few good things you've done.

And LMAO at the Wings being one of the teams that voted against this, they basically got exactly what they were looking for, a dramatically improved travel schedule.

Neg away...

Is it sad that I've watched the replay of the Holmstrom goal about 15 times so far and I still can't get enough of it?

Fact is, Eva is trolling all of us and laughing hysterically at his computer since we are all so easily goaded.


#2228772 Jiri Hudler Appreciation Thread

This thread is too much. Hudler playing D at the NHL level, you have to be kidding me?

And the reason he had no chance on the Richards goal is because he's slower than molasses...his lack of speed certainly doesn't help his versatility.

I'll be at the game! GO WINGS!!!

Losing Rafalski's outstanding passing abilities certainly isn't helping in this department. Again, Ian White was a good pickup any day of the week, but let's be clear about one thing: we absolutely have not replaced Brian Rafalski yet. Not even close.


You wanna be really depressed, imagine what happens if we lose Lidstrom after this year.


#2222552 Thoughts on tonight's game/Season outlook

Posted by greenrebellion on 03 November 2011 - 10:36 PM

I say we tank and go for Yakupov. :ph34r:

Franzen - Datsyuk - Yakupov
Hudler - Zetterberg - Filppula
Abdelkader - Helm - Cleary
Worrell - Emmerton - Bertuzzi


Lidstrom - White
Kronwall - Stuart
Ericsson - Commodore


#2222551 F*** YOU Player X

Posted by greenrebellion on 03 November 2011 - 10:32 PM

F*** YOU Hulder for not living up to Eva's lofty expectations.

If you look at our top six, it just can't match up against a lot of teams anymore.

Bertuzzi is clearly on the decline and is more of a third line player.

I think cleary played above his abilities last year, he's a versatile player but probably fits in best on a third line role.

Datsyuk isn't the same datsyuk that he was so hopefully he returns at some point. (Might be his wrist).

Holmstrom, not anymore. Hudler, no he's useless.

I mean how many top six guys do we really have? Zetterberg, Dats, & Franzen.

Why were you guys all yelling shutout, you know that the reverse jinx doesn't work, it only helps them get the shutout.

Will the real Datsyuk please stand up.


#2199174 Chris Osgood announces retirement

Posted by greenrebellion on 18 July 2011 - 10:39 PM

He's been below average for 3 regular seasons in a row now...I've always been a big Ozzie supporter but I think bringing him back is a mistake.


#2193294 Wings re-sign Ericsson to 3-year, $9.75m contract

Posted by greenrebellion on 01 July 2011 - 09:43 AM

Negotiations probably went something like this:

Holland: We'll give you 2.25 million
Big E: Hmmm, close, but I'd need to know what my role on the team would be. I won't sign if I'm not a pivotal part of the D.
Holland: Oh for sure, we'll make you top 4 and use you in all kinds of situations.
Big E: Well in that case, I'm not signing for anywhere near 2.25 million, hahahaha.
Holland: F***, you got me.
Agent: Not sure what this kid pays me for, damn he's good.

Was funnier in my head, I'm on an hour of sleep here people, have mercy.
