#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.

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.

Joy to the world... we beat the Panthers!!




#2482074 2/6 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Panthers 1

Howard has indeed been huge for us tonight, you have to admit.

I think a lot of people have trouble grasping that even the worlds most top level elite goalie is going to struggle and have bad games. It's just going to happen. They will struggle at times, they will slump, they will have a bad stretch. Laying it out simply, he isn't an elite goalie, but he's a great goalie. Like any NHL goalie, he has his ups and he has his downs. For whatever the reason expectations for him to be top level and elite every single game resulting in a 60-0-0 regular season record is unrealistic as a hockey fan, yet he continues to get more grief than praise. 

 

This is just where I stand and how I see it, opinions differ and clash, but that's where I stand and I remain confident with Howard as our starting netminder for upcoming seasons.

#2481762 Franzen for edler?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 06 February 2014 - 04:35 PM

With Franzen's injury I'm just surprised someone would want him and that contract

I agree, it's not an ideal time to trade a player when they have been out with injury for an extended period of time, especially a concussion. 

 

One of those articles did say there was an offer with "three pieces" but Vancouver wanted a 4th which inevitably ended the talks at that time. I don't think a 1 for 1 scenario would be the kind of deal on the table here.

Lines are in anticipation of Pav returning, it will be known after morning skate if he will indeed play in this game. If he does, I gotta say I personally love the look of those top 3 lines, and our boys are finally returning to full strength. 

 

LETS BEAT FLORIDA THIS TIME!

 

They have had our number this season for whatever reason, there is no way we drop another one to them. 

 

Wings take it 5-3. GO WINGS!!
