#2349066 Zetterberg's Great But...

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 30 January 2013 - 02:02 AM

You need to factor in the players on their lines for all of those seasons, how often they were on the same line together, injuries and length of time missed, etc. There's nothing reflecting favoritism here at all because the differences are so small and there's a tremendous amount of factors outside of the numbers.




#2348504 Theme night GDT

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 29 January 2013 - 04:53 PM

RTooDToo needs to be someone's username on this site. Boba Fetterov is the only thing I can think of and it doesn't even apply to the current team, got some creative Star Wars minds around here. I love this thread. :)




#2348320 Finding a dance partner and rebuilding our team.

Is that you kenny? I thought we discussed drinking at work.

:lol:

 

Be patient he's still typing out the 6th continuation of this post. 

 

Datsyuk should and will retire in Detroit. 




#2348272 How do we solve our PK issues?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 28 January 2013 - 08:54 PM

Agreed.. St. Louis last season with the Halak Elliot combo along with the D was vicious. Especially during the second half of the season.

I skimmed considering the source, and as soon as I saw "Datsyuk" and "Trade Bait" together in the same sentence I loled in displeasure and decided to stop reading.   

 

This, as many posted a lot lately, I put under the category of "NHL 13 Scenario" because something this dramatic occurring in the real NHL is an impossibility. 

 

And let's cut the "Buyout Franzen" nonsense that's not happening either. 




#2346292 1/25 GDT : Wild 3 at Red Wings 5

GO WINGS! Win this one, we need it for the sanity of LGW.




#2345630 Trade for Bogosian

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 23 January 2013 - 09:14 PM

Topic involves trades. GM makes trades. Use the ignore function if you have a problem with my repetitiveness. But I post ON-Topic 99% of the time. So counter my point or leave it be.

Yeah topic involves hockey, site involves hockey, so technically going by your logic as long as it's hockey related it can be posted in any thread because it's "on topic". So staying on topic, let's bring up the 1960 stanley cup finals, because it involves hockey just like this thread does. Here's your cue to mention Holland "failing" to get Parise because he wanted to play in his home state instead Wtf is Kenny's problem he should have moved the entire franchise to Minnesota to insure they DECIDED to come play here, or held their families hostage at gunpoint and forced them to come play here. So sorry for questioning you, your credibility is phenomenal. 

 

Coming back to reality, the thread has nothing to do with opinions on Holland, the decisions of Suter and Parise to play for Minnesota, it's a thread about a trade that the OP believes should make with Winnipeg. Your comment was completely off topic, but apparently excuses will be made for you to continue to make stabs at this team and it's management.

 

While we're at it, I think i'll bring up Chewbacca, because he follows around Han Solo in Star Wars, as Luke Skywalker uses a blue lightsaber, and blue is the color of Winnipeg's jerseys, so that's gotta be on topic also. Let's get into a heated wookie discussion people. :)




#2345409 Call up the kids now

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 23 January 2013 - 11:28 AM

Yeah started the season 1-2-0 let's throw the rest of the year away we're doomed. Experience is overrated anyway our bottom two lines can be all rookies.  :lol: 




#2345323 1/22 GDT : Stars 2 at Red Wings 1

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 23 January 2013 - 02:31 AM

Guys, arguing in an internet forum is tantamount to arguing over whose mother packed them a better boxed lunch in 3rd grade. Let's keep it together here. 

Agreed. Lot of new faces, lot of changes, give them time to get it together a little bit. Especially considering there was no preseason, a shortened training camp, there's a handful of teams in the same situation right now that will find themselves in the playoffs. Look at the standings right now and tell me it's not complete chaos. 




#2342907 1/19: Red Wings 0 at St. Louis Blues 6

Today will be a better day. Waiting for the new GDT and pushing the first game of the season behind. 




#2338769 I need a prayer answered, please.....no toot-toot whistles.

I'd like to see Al Sobotka grab a beluga whale by the tail and swing it around.




#2335750 13 pro teams running out of fans

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 10 December 2012 - 03:10 AM

I keep posting on forums, don't be a dumbass and boycott hockey if it does return this season. The sport is already damaged from all of this, the day hockey returns and Center Ice becomes available i'll buy it as I normally do.

Let's face facts, yes this sucks, yes i'm mad, yes many fans are lost, but I still have a love affair with the sport. The word Hockey was in my wedding vows (seriously) and my better half understands that I can't live without it and it's so much more to me than just a sport.

We'll get through this, and hopefully there's not too much of a decline in fan following, although i'm pessimistic about that. I just want hockey. Now.

Santa if you are reading this, making this wish comes true makes up for the lack of a slip and slide in 1989. Still bitter.


#2335066 New fan.. need advice

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 01 December 2012 - 08:51 AM

This is a bad bad time to be a new hockey fan. It's borderline embarrassing how much of a circus this year has been so far.

Honestly, to the OP, I would go to best buy, or moviestop, or whatever well stocked dvd retail store there is around you and purchase the Red Wings box set. In my opinion, it includes the essentials of what a Red Wings fan should see, know, and remember. The battles between them and Colorado, the cup wins, and the most intense moments of Red Wings playoff history. Buy it, watch it, all of it, yes it's 5 cds two-sided but do it anyway, learn from it, love it. I went back and watched a few of those games again, remembered the knot in my stomach before a Wings/Avs regular season game and how much was on the line, and the intensity, and the passion.

Don't be discouraged by the events going on currently in the NHL. It's worth the wait in the long run.


#2334637 Entry Draft Order...if season is lost

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 24 November 2012 - 12:45 AM

I almost spit out barley pop when I read that...

What the hell is barley pop?! :lol:

I wish they actually used the term "balls" in trades, it's catchier than "pick".

"Columbus trades Rick Nash to New York for their first and second balls."

Even a Jackets fan can't be upset when reading that.


#2334375 Guild Wars 2

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 20 November 2012 - 05:41 PM

I've got a few friends playing this game, it looks pretty amazing. I have an old PC so I really can't run any modern game or anything that exceeds the graphical and memory demands of Angry Birds. One day i'll pick up a gaming PC again and plan on checking this game out. I think the lack of a monthly subscription fee is very appealing for an online MMO, buy the game and play it all you want, that's how it should be.
