#2555040 Honest question for everyone.

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 December 2014 - 04:56 AM

Just when I think I have it all down, I know it all, I can make bold predictions that come true, I take Jonathan Cheechoo in the 2nd round of my fantasy hockey draft and finish in dead last place. 


There is a fact in that amusing (and true) statement, that even as incredible as one player can look for one or two week, up to two full seasons, there is always the chance that they flop, fall off, stop producing, lose that "spark" to the point where I am not only very reserved on my predictions and statements about players, I only find comfort in those like Datsyuk, Zetterberg, Lidstrom that have proven time and time again for most of their career that they just have it.


On LGW here, we see many sides of a lot of fans, those who still aren't convinced about a lot of our players, to those who debated and argued for a year about Brunner and Clarkson being on this team or not, just to see them inevitably flop hard and become terrible acquisitions for the teams they signed with. Yet a lot were tooth and nail convinced they were the answer, Clarkson after one good season was worth 5 million to bring in here and take the place of some of the youth that eventually came up like Nyquist and Tatar. If you look on it now, which I can safely say 30% of the LGW community wanted us to have Brunner and Clarkson right now, what position would we be in if both were signed to 4-5 year conctracts keeping Nyquist and Tatar in the minors?


But the fact is, no one knows what the future will bring. We make predictions on our observations as fans, sometimes they are right, a lot of times they are wrong. It's part of the spine that makes a forum posting sports fan thrive, it sparks our conversations and debates, disagreements and arguments. We like to act like we know everything, that management is moronic and we could run the team better than the real higher ups do, but at the end of the day we are just passionate fans with strong opinions on the team that we dedicate a portion of our life watching, loving, and talking about who are more often wrong than we care to admit.

I'd tell that Mabus mod how awesome he was and bask in his greatness for the full 24 hours.

#2554773 Tomas Tatar Appreciation Thread

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 08 December 2014 - 04:35 AM

Let's get back on track here and stick with the topic, which is the Tatar appreciation thread, not the Weiss debate thread. 


I didn't honestly expect this kind of start out of Tatar, I think a lot of us were focused on Nyquist emerging as the young goal scorer this season, but it's been a pleasant surprise to see Tatar scoring out there as much as he has been. I hope it keeps up and he stays consistent, and it's been exciting to watch this far. 

#2554489 12/7 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Hurricanes 1

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 07 December 2014 - 02:09 AM

GDT looks fantastic. 


2 more points to be had, let's snag them up and keep this great start to the season rolling. 


I've been thrilled with the resilience this team has shown, the ability to come back and hold leads in tight games, kill off important PK situations and secure these much needed wins and points early on. 


With Weiss playing as well as he has, Howard's strong play, and the kids stepping it up, there truly is a strong balance out there that is capable of competing every night. It's an exciting season so far to be a Wings fan. 


Keep it up boys, LGW!

Updated original post, sorry for the lack of a normal GDT, work life calls. Did my best to put out the general information with lines, starting goalies, and game time.

I'm feeling a lot more comfortable with Weiss having 5 points in his first 3 games back. It's not like he's old either, he's sitting at 31 and had a lot of health issues. 


If he keeps producing and stays healthy, he can be the difference maker we thought we were getting to begin with.

Looking like Monster between the pipes against a slow starting Philadelphia team. I know it's not my most informative GDT but i've been strapped for free time and i'm working on a new format i'll launch by December with more statistics, information, and overall appeal.
In the meantime, let's keep the season running strong and LGW!

#2542042 10/18 GDT - Maple Leafs 0 at Red Wings 1 (OT)

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 18 October 2014 - 02:49 AM



First GDT post of the season, glad to finally have the new format finished and ready to post up for you great posters at LGW. 
Franzen appears to be fine, just a leg spasm, and likely will play. Monster makes his first appearance of the season. Let's follow up on last night's great performance and trim the leafs in back to back games. 
As always, lines are projected as it stands right now at the time I am posting this in the middle of the night. Lines and goalies are subject to change.
