#2488700 Trade Deadline Prediction Time

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 March 2014 - 10:03 PM

I see us signing a depth 9th defenseman that will never play like Garnet Exelby, but will still draw excitement from at least 3 people on this site.

 

We are overdue for an impact deadline move, but I still don't think this is the year.




#2488505 Very Chris Very, Very Osgood...very

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 March 2014 - 08:06 AM

It could be worse, he could have a hidden repetitious word that he uses in every sentence, including "like, um, ah, but" or "you know". 

 

He could be like reporting something and then like says something over and over that like he doesn't notice. Once you realize he's saying it like over and over you like can't unhear it. 

 

As he's new to the field stuff like this he'll receive constructive criticism about and he'll get a bit more comfortable over time. I can't imagine how difficult a job like that is.

 

Could make a solid drinking game of out if, drink every time Osgood says "very" during a broadcast.




#2488502 Naming the New Arena

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 02 March 2014 - 07:52 AM

"3rd Period Implosion Arena"

 

I don't see it being anything creative, it will get sponsored and be something obnoxious like "Geico Fifteen Minute Forum".




#2487231 Pekka Rinne cleared to play,sent to Admirals for conditioning

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 27 February 2014 - 02:15 AM

Can't believe I held on to him all year in my fantasy league. Hope it paid off!

 

Glad to see that he's healthy again though, always been a fan of his and think he has the potential to be one of the best in the league. 

Same, in two leagues! They are both long term keeper leagues so it wouldn't have been too smart to dump him with that in consideration. 

 

For me, Rinne is a top 3 goaltender in the league. It's a nice boost for Nashville getting him back from his strange condition and i'm glad to hear he's made a full recovery. Good news out of an organization that I hate a bit less now that we are in the East, thanks for the update.

Welcome back!

 

As always, lines are projected as this was posted the night before the game. This is in anticipation of Datsyuk and Franzen returning to the lineup. 

 

A couple of big games back to back here as we venture forward without captain Z for the remainder of the season. 

 

Let's come out flying, shake that Olympic hangover and get a win here. 

 

Wings win it 3-2. GO RED WINGS!!!

It's been fun, congrats to Canada, Sweden, and Finland respectively. 

 

Back to the NHL, and another 4 year wait until more Olympic hockey.

Reopened for this weekends medal rounds. It's been fun, good luck to the remaining teams. Lets hand out some medals and get back to Red Wings hockey!




#2486030 USA-Canada Thread

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 21 February 2014 - 06:34 PM

Okay, do we feel better? Got a lot of it out of your systems, shake it off, take a deep breath and remember when this is all said and done what team we ALL root for. This hasn't gotten out of hand yet but it's approaching that line and i'm just going to make a friendly post here to say remain civil, after Sunday we are all friends again. 4-5 pages of justifying how a fan should act after a win is plenty, points have been exhausted, and we can return back to pleasant conversation about this game.

 

And yes, I smother my pancakes and waffles with syrup. I am not from Canada. Your "bacon" unfortunately is a lie and misleading. 

That is all, carry on.




#2485827 USA-Canada Thread

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 21 February 2014 - 12:12 PM

Good luck to both sides, and remember, a lot of us are Americans, and there are quite a few Canadians here as well, but in the long run we are all Red Wings fans. Be mindful of that and respectful to each other as such, once this is all said and done we all pull for the same team and all still have to get along with each other (for the most part). 

 

Mods will be monitoring this thread as the game goes on, and still maintain that crossing the line from sportsmanship and friendly banter to viciousness and personal attacks will lead to warnings and/or suspensions. Let's keep this a fun event for everyone here, thanks.




#2483110 Wings go to Mexico

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 February 2014 - 02:44 AM

Good for them, take some time off, get a tan, and don't drink the water. 

 

As far as where they are or where they might be staying, I have no idea and i'm not entirely sure if that's something they would disclose. I've never been there myself. 

 

This reminded me of a old photoshop I made a while back, dug it up for the occasion. Not any of the guys above but still reasonably humorous.

#2483084 NHL players will not participate in 2018 Olympics (Mod Post #99)

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 09 February 2014 - 08:51 PM

In my opinion it loses a tremendous amount of entertainment value overall but I can understand why they are pulling out. 

 

2014 may be a historical last year with NHL players being involved, enjoy it while it's here because who knows when it might happen again.

#2482363 'Detroit's Dark Horse Potential'

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 07 February 2014 - 03:54 PM

I'm generally the optimist fan, always in high spirits, confident, and faithful in this team. I gotta say, watching all the games this season, I believe the offense can get the job done if we are entirely healthy. 

 

The defense... without adding at least one more impact defender, ideally a top 2, It's hard for me to visualize a deep run in the playoffs this year. We have too many average defenders that make average defender mistakes that prove to be costly in playoffs as we saw in the series against Chicago last year. 

 

If we can land one more good/great defenseman, the sky is the limit once playoffs start and who knows what can happen. As it sits now it's very hard for me to remain confident.




#2482348 Gustav Nyquist Appreciation Thread

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 07 February 2014 - 03:24 PM

This is a photoshop I did for The Xym but deemed it appropriate for this thread.

I'm loving seeing him grow more confident and produce, here's to more years with Nyquist as one of our top Wingmen.
