I love this thread :thumbup:

#2322360 Semin signs one year, $7m deal with Carolina

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 26 July 2012 - 11:32 PM

Even as we sit we aren't a non-playoff team and i'm confident in that. Thrash me all you want if the playoffs roll around and we fall short, but I think all the disappointment this offseason is sparking a bit of panicky delusions that we are now a bad team. Only thing that would have changed if we had Semin is Franzen would have gotten some of the heat taking off of him from being lazy and we would now have a new whipping boy to replace Hudler. I hate to say "I Guarantee" but I bet at the end of next season some people around here will be breathing a sigh of relief that we didn't piss away 7 million on Semin.

Optimism is one thing. Homerism is another. We need a #1 dman and 2 wingers who can bury it. All preferably right handed. Problem now is that they have to come thru trade. And that means we only make monor improvements when we need major ones. Unless Brunner and Nyquist turn out to be Shanahan and Larionov & Smith turns out to be Fetisov , we are gonna watch a lot of losses this year.

We don't need Smith, Brunner, and Nyquist to all be superstars, they just need to get the job done, and I think they will. Nothing wrong with being optimistic in our youth for once and not take the spoiled path of signing a superstar to replace one that just retired all the time. This isn't pre-cap hockey anymore.

#2322015 Breaking Bad

Yessir, Mike doing work and everything is about to blow up in classic Breaking Bad style. I'm anticipating this to be the best season of the series.

For the love of god, if you are reading this thread and haven't watched this show yet, go watch it. NOW! It's a masterpiece.

#2321776 hello

Welcome to LGW!

You don't need to apologize for starting a thread introducing yourself, and your english is fine. We have a few members from Europe that post here so I think you will fit in and it's great that you have been so personally involved with Hockey yourself. I bet you crossed paths with Olaf Kolzig at some point.

#2321766 Who is your favorite player from a team besides the Wings?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 25 July 2012 - 12:32 AM

I'll repeat Neil here and add Clutterbuck to the list. I'm also a pretty big fan of Patrick Sharp.

Non-hockey would be Ryan Howard, Matt Kemp, and Brandon Phillips even though i'm a Braves fan.

As drum said above, season 4 is available on netflix now as well.

#2318730 Holland Content with Current Roster

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 12 July 2012 - 05:32 PM

It's time to have faith in our youth and brush off a bit of the "guaranteed success" mentality. It's going to be an interesting season to say the least, it's the first time I can remember going into a season wondering if we are actually gonna make the playoffs. I'm not ripping on the team in the slightest, but there has been some drastic change this offseason and the team is a bit foreign going into October. I really don't know what to expect, I HOPE Smith is another Karlsson story and just explodes this season but i'm not banking on it. We didn't expect Flip to have the season he just had and i'm looking forward to being surprised again and seeing who steps up and gets it done for us.

It's been sticking in my head since the Wild signed those who shall not be named (and I don't mean Voldemort) that what if we did sign them both to those huge contracts, Smith proves to be an elite defensemen over the next couple years and we can't afford to resign him because we locked ourselves up with those massive contracts? Sometimes things happen for a reason, and if we can't add any big name players then i'm sticking to this logic so I don't go nuts.

#2318038 Chris Neil Signs Extension With Ottawa

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 11 July 2012 - 01:29 AM

Agreed with the comments, Neil is one of my favorite non-wings as well, and i've posted many times that i'd love to see him here someday. Ottawa is smart for locking him up, he is an asset to their developing system.

Him and Clutterbuck have been helping me own the hits category in my fantasy league for the past few years also, had to toss that in there. :P

Today's fun fact: he has never been suspended.

This I did not know.

I will always remember this hit, one of the hardest i've ever seen.

#2318023 The Next Move

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 11 July 2012 - 12:41 AM

They took my job....


South park reference... I think. :lol:

I'm not in any kind of panic or concern about this team going forward, maybe it's because I have very high hopes for Smith or maybe it's because Flip proved last season that he can be that scoring player we were hoping he would be. This team wins, and I don't think this upcoming season is going to be any different. It may not be the top seed we are used to but I don't think we are doomed to fail either.

#2317599 How bad are we if our roster is now finalized?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 July 2012 - 03:53 AM

Lol.. Might win the Presidents trophy and the cup next year eh? Yes, I can see it now. Lose Lidstrom and Stuart and add nobody on the back end. Damien Brunner is the biggest signing of the year... So I have only one thing to say to that. In the words of Emilio Estevez when he played Billy the Kid in Young Guns.. "I wouldn't give a bucket of piss for your future."

P.S. Holland better get on his horse and start making some improvements on this roster or you guys are going to be Royally Fuc*ked

Yeah it really sucks that we may have one off year after winning 4 championships in the last 15 years. :sleepy:

#2317597 PK Subban for Flippula and Tatar?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 July 2012 - 03:33 AM

Subban is YOUNG. He is immature and needs to grow up, but entirely too fresh in his NHL career to label him as a locker room cancer. Patrick Kane is a twerp but even he's starting to somewhat come around and act like a professional. I stress "starting to" before the comments start pouring in. :lol:

Fact is the kid is skilled, plays a rough game, and could be terrifying on a line with Kronwall for opposing teams to play against. I think a lot of highlights that showed him this past season were showing the negative and it really doesn't reflect his overall potential. You can't really judge any player on Montreal considering the fiasco of a season they just went through, that team is a disaster and being a rookie going into a situation like that can't be positive.

Rumor, faked tweeting, whatever it is, i'm in favor of Subban as a long term option on our D line.

#2316923 A General question

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 08 July 2012 - 02:13 AM

LOL at the chat roulette thing, I tried it once and saw a penis once out of every three tries. Literally.

I can pretty much reflect what metalkorn here said, it's more an internet thing. It's easy to be a tough guy to someone you will never see face to face in your life, and that's why people become so over-opinionated. Fact is, in America, England, Australia, Canada, wherever in the world, there's dickheads everywhere. The good news is the posters that embrace these traits normally don't stick around for very long. I've noticed that we do get some "troublemakers" around here every so often, they piss everyone off for a few weeks and then we never see them again.

If I have a conflicting opinion, I try to remain as civil and respectful as I can, but there's some that like to get into heated debates. I just try to blow off the rude and smart assed comments and stick to reading replies from members that I know aren't going to be jerks even if they disagree with you.

So to sum it up, any forum you visit will have instances like this because that's how the internet works and people are dumb. If it gets exceedingly irritating or you find someone is just attacking you for no reason i'd bring up any issues to the forum moderators.
