#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.

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!!

I pretty much only play Club/OTP outside of the GM Connected league I run. My EASHL skater is RD, 94 goals 343 assists +117 in 507 games. Legend 3 card, I only play defense.




#2481364 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 February 2014 - 01:32 AM

"2/3's Demoted When Healthy" line?

I was thinking along the lines of "Broken when Datsyuk returns line" but same idea.

I did start it by mentioning Beavis in a Wings shirt to set you up for the epic PP goal for my bunghole quote, which Mabus promptly put into the awesome pic. I'll blame the Macallan for this one since I forced myself to not post during the game. ;). Mabus does have the awesome photoshop skills. I'm sure Nyquist onto the Goose is my Wingman graphic is out there somewhere as well.

 

 

I feel like this is spiraling out of control :lol:

 

I'll take on the homework, something new to unleash during the next GDT if all goes well.

Can someone photoshop Jimmy and Gus together like those dorky werewolf twins from teen wolf?  We'll give that one the shutout.

Or one of those creepy "If this celebrity bred with this celebrity, this is what the baby would look like" photos from the late night talk shows.. I can build a creepy Jimmy Monster hybrid.. I have the technology.
