#2501753 Weiss - who would take him next season and does he have a full NTC

Posted by Bannedforlife on 27 March 2014 - 01:22 PM

I don't understand what the big deal is. If a grown man wants to spend all his free time thinking up nicknames and line combinations for a bunch of kids that he's never met, that's his right. And I don't think there's anything creepy or sad about it at all. AT ALL.

And I'm not being sarcastic. Not even a little.

Wow Holland, totally pathetic.

Cross that bridge when we get to it. I'd rather win a Cup while we still have Datsyuk than worry about whether we may or may not have to trade or bury or buy out a few players 5 years from now.

#2481425 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

The Hot-N-Ready Line, duh.. Do I have to think of everything? Shesh...

#2476443 Look who's top in GR scoring

Can you find anything dumber to throw a hissy fit about? Just because you haven't heard the nickname doesn't mean others haven't been using it. I've seen him called that since he was drafted. I think Dirty Harry is going to be a fine agitator in the NHL. Just don't expect a ton of offense or 10 fights a year.


You know, I was thinking about our situation today and we might not be as bad off as it seems. Here are a couple options that I see:
1) Convert Waka Flocka Chewbacca from the wing to defense. He's a big guy and I could see him being a good net clearing presence until Big Poppa gets back.
2) Make a trade. We don't have a ton of tradeable assets right now, but maybe General Tso's Chicken could pull a rabbit out of his hat. I'm thinking we could package together Destiny's Child and Can't-stop-thinkin-bout-that-girl-I-banged-in-Starbucks-bathroom-kinda-wish-I-got-her-number-espesh-cause-now-it-burns-when-I-pee-oh-well-hope-its-chillz for an elite puck moving defenseman, maybe someone like Hello Kitty.
3) If all else fails it might be time to come up with some new nicknames for the team I mean how can the team be expected to perform at an elite level with old nicknames, sometimes I feel like I have to think of everything shesh...

#2472878 2014 draft thoughts.

Posted by Bannedforlife on 13 January 2014 - 11:55 PM

I'd like them to trade our 1st this year to a desperate team for a 1st next year. Next year we trade 2 firsts to move way up to get a 1C prospect. Its not like we need quantity at this point - we need a quality 1st line C prospect and that won't come where we draft without trading up.


Alternatively, if we move a piece for another 1st at the deadline (i dunno who) we could try something like this this year potentially too.


We desperately lack that 1C in the system and this is the best and least expensive way to get one. 



That's actually a great idea, and one that I've never thought of! We've got a fairly stocked cupboard right now, so much so that we'll be needing to make some tough decisions soon. This would buy us some time and give a nice easy decision in 2 years!

Not only do I log onto LGW at least once per day and have never heard Callahan referred to as Dirty Harry, but LGW isn't meant to cater exclusively to hardcore forum posters. Nicknames are supposed to make it easier to discuss the team, not to prove how funny and clever you are. Making up nicknames that no one else uses is obnoxious and unnecessary. Watch...


It looks like Yellow Mustard is going to miss some time after catching that elbow last night against the Sabres. Its really bad timing too, because our defense already thin with Big Poppa out with a concussion and Bandit serving his 5 game suspension. I would say this forces us to call up someone from GR, most likely Billy the Kid or The Player Formerly Known As Steve. We might be in trouble on the back end until we get some regulars back, since this leaves the Boogeyman as our #1 defenseman. And you know what that means!!!!

I think there should be a rule about completely fabricating nicknames for players. I have no idea who Dirty Harry is, and it's annoying that I have to ask.

#2462621 I'd like to talk about this off-season/next season

Posted by Bannedforlife on 09 December 2013 - 09:59 PM

The new CBA, specifically the cap recapture provision, specifically the part that states that the penalty applies to the team that originally signed the deal, not the team that owns the player when he retires.


Plus, many other things related to the "business world that is called the NHL"...

#2417400 Wings interested in Stalberg and Bickell

Posted by Bannedforlife on 03 June 2013 - 05:49 PM

If the Wings think, they can go into the east without an enforcer, good luck it would be suicide. Guys like Lucic, Orr, Thornton, MacLaren, Prust, Scott would have a lot of fun doing cheapshots against our stars and not facing any consequences on the ice. So signing one of the top HW guys has to be a priority. Bickell is physical but he stands no chance against any of these guys. I don't care if people think it is a wasted roster spot, an enforcer adds way more than just the time of the ice. He provides security, confidence and makes everyone growing a few inches just because they are there. It's a little bit like the big brother thing. Tootoo is a pest/agitator and not an enforcer, so basically a useless guy in the east because he will have to answer against guys way out of his class in terms of size and fighting skills. So I think something along the lines of Clarkson, Scott + 1 defender has to be on Hollands agenda. Bickell is NOT an enforcer, he is just big and willing to drop the gloves.

I'd be willing to bet that the Wings will not sign an enforcer this offseason AND that they will fare just as well in the east, if not better, as they did in the west.

#2386733 Concerned - we might not make it in to the playoffs

Posted by Bannedforlife on 19 April 2013 - 12:08 PM

I can personally guarantee that Dallas will lose tonight against St Louis. My fantasy opponent this week has Brian Elliot and I desperately need for him to get shelled and lose the game. Therefore, he won't :)

#2385634 I met TooToo's girlfriend's brother at the Canucks/Wings game

My best friend's sister's boyfriend's brother's girlfriend heard from this guy who knows this kid who's going with the girl who saw Jordin pass out at 31 Flavors last night.


Sorry, I had to.
