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.

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

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

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.

#2334373 Has your opinion of kenny changed?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 20 November 2012 - 05:31 PM

Was totally unprepared for Lidstrom's retirement. Shouldn't have had to jump through hoops for Suter in the first place.

This is exactly how I feel about it also. I don't blame him for not landing either player, but I do blame him for not preparing better for the future.

The only good news that can come out of a cancelled season this year is next year's pool of free agents will come and we still have the money to spend. A few competitive teams put themselves out of the bidding war by dropping $$$ on FAs this offseason.

Blueadams' spidey sense is tingling.

Carmen Sandiego was the first thing that I thought when I saw the thread title.

#2330737 Who can tell me something about the Red Wings

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 October 2012 - 12:26 AM

All you need to write on the paper is Pavel Datsyuk. Period.

I don't see how you can't get an A+ for that.

#2330134 White as home jerseys or road jerseys?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 26 September 2012 - 07:35 PM

I vote white at home, as mentioned above I grew up watching the Wings at home in white.

#2329679 Report: NHL may cancel Winter Classic by November if no CBA deal

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 21 September 2012 - 11:30 PM

We should send all the owners and players involved to Siberia to hold their own Winter Classic in an ice shack until they work out their differences.

This entire scenario is beyond aggravating at this point. It's becoming hard to remain a loyal hockey fan through hard times like these.

#2329433 Would a Shorter Season Help or Hurt the Wings?

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 19 September 2012 - 04:49 PM

Considering our history shows that the first half of the season goes much better than the second half, I think it would be beneficial and give us a better chance of landing a higher playoff seed. As much as I don't want a half season, I do think it favors the Wings.
