#2471484 Look who's top in GR scoring

Posted by Bannedforlife on 09 January 2014 - 02:03 PM

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!!!!


Boogeyman - Hot Topic

Heebie Jeebies - Dances with Wolves

My Little Pony - Agent Orange

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

Posted by Bannedforlife on 17 April 2013 - 01:08 PM

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.

I literally can't wait to see a certain Winger's reaction to this news. :innocent:

I bet Holland panics and overpays Quincey. Lame...

#2314591 We Need to Trade

Throw everything we have at Phoenix to get Yandle, sign Semin and Doan to 1 year deals, overpay Weber next year.

#2314445 Zach Parise agrees to 13-year, $98-mil deal with Wild

I hope they get hit with tampering charges for that little stunt they pulled. What a crock of s***

#2311274 CRAZZZZYYY Roster Idea

Posted by Bannedforlife on 29 June 2012 - 09:17 PM

Not that this is NHL 2013 nor would Columbus accept a bunch of junk, but I would love to acquire Nash somehow, along with getting rid of Franzen, Cleary, Mursak, Emmeton, Kindl, a prospect or two and draft picks... Man if some kind of combo of those players/picks would get Nash here, I would be on cloud 900! With the open spots we have now an then dumping Franzines and Cleary's salary, we could add Parise/Meuller/Semin along with having Nash....ya ya, total fantasy world, I know, but wow that would send a message to the NHL! :lol:

edit: nah, nevermind, I cannot fit all those guys under the Cap on capgeek....but if we lost out on the Parise sweeps and still acquired Nash we could get Semin and Meuller and Garrison and Suter...

also for some odd reason, I go to "cap calculator" on capgeek and Parise is not listed under NJD as a UFA....

so I came up with this crazy roster! (I only brought Sproul up because he was the next highest D on the prospects list....I let Quincey walk and I traded Kindl)

Alexander Semin ($5.500m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Rick Nash ($7.800m)
Valtteri Filppula ($3.000m) / Henrik Zetterberg ($6.083m) / Damien Brunner ($1.000m)
Drew Miller ($0.838m) / Peter Mueller ($2.750m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m)
Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Brandon Prust ($1.200m)
Justin Abdelkader ($1.250m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m) /
Niklas Kronwall ($4.750m) / Ryan Suter ($8.000m)
Ian White ($2.875m) / Jason Garrison ($0.985m)
Brendan Smith ($0.875m) / Jonathan Ericsson ($3.250m)
Ryan Sproul ($0.925m) /
Jimmy Howard ($2.250m)
Al Montoya ($0.875m)

SALARY CAP: $70,200,000; CAP PAYROLL: $67,180,833; BONUSES: $320,000
CAP SPACE (23-man roster): $3,019,167

If you think Garrison is going to sign anywhere for under a million dollars, you're on supercrack!

#2311272 The Grass Is Always Greener - Johan Franzen

Posted by Bannedforlife on 29 June 2012 - 09:06 PM

I think nothing will help Franzen more than acquiring an elite-level scorer to play on the first line. Take the pressure off of him to be "the guy" and he should do much better.

And if that doesnt help, trade his lazy ass.

#2307199 Brad Stuart's rights traded to San Jose

Posted by Bannedforlife on 13 June 2012 - 03:04 PM

I think Schultz is more valuable then Stuart. And you know Kenny let his pal Stewie pick where he wanted to go

Wouldn't be surprised to see that 7th, Murray, and another pick go to the Ducks for Schultz though

I dont think so. Stuart is a proven veteran with a Stanley Cup ring. Schultz is a highly touted, but unproven prospect. It seems even to me.

I think it's more likely that Holland isn't interested in Schultz.
