#2434770 Red Wings Goal song?

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 03 September 2013 - 02:43 AM

Chevelle - The Red @3:05   First thing that came to mind for me.  Kind of like how the jackets would use just the beginning of Machine Head by Bush whenever the players would get on the ice (which was quite awesome btw).





I'm sure I can think of better ones, though.

#2430723 Um, OK, not really sure this'll have the desired effect

If your pee is that yellow, you're not drinking enough water. ;)



Or you're taking in a lot of vitamin C.

#2430331 Datsyuk Interview

I effing love this guy!


On a side note, am I the only one who reads any of his quotes in his voice?  I do it every time.

#2430314 Maple Leafs plan cup parade?

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 16 July 2013 - 11:03 AM

In a game shrouded in superstition, I imagine there are some players who are not too happy about this. I mean you're not even allowed to say shutout until the game is over so I imagine planning a cup parade before the season even starts is gonna drive some people nuts. Leafs go 0-82 this season lol.

#2428330 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 07 July 2013 - 02:26 AM

Uhh...have you seen the regular season and playoffs? He the definition of a natural goal scorer. The puck always found him. He's one dimensional in that he basically has zero defensive game but his purpose on this team would be to shoot and score goals. I think the term "floater" gets thrown around too often in these forums.

I'm not saying I think he's more valuable than Tatar or nyquist, it goes without saying that he is not, but how many successful shoot first players do we have? None.

I agree he is worthless defensively, but what he can bring to the table for the Wings is pretty valuable. We have enough Clearys, we need more brunners.

#2426206 Wings in on Alfredsson

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 04 July 2013 - 09:47 PM

So we don't want Alfredsson because he shot a puck at someone? At least he shoots the puck! We need more shooters, less passers.

which is why we need to focus on 27 year old Brunner, not 35 year old alfredsson.

#2426160 Wings in on Alfredsson

Fine by me. Neidermeyer was a big ****** as well.

Oh, definitely no argument here, in regard to Neidermeyer I mean.  But shooting a puck at someone?  Pretty careless and childish IMO.  Its on the same level as Mclellan coming into the game for 45 seconds and slashing mule in the stomach.  It makes me sick every time I see his face on tsn.  

#2425167 Penguins re-sign Pascal Dupuis

#2422974 1 Hour-Long Q&A with Ken Holland & Tom Wilson *Video

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 27 June 2013 - 11:57 PM

Notes courtesy (Joe89 of HFboards)


-Mentions Glendening in Grand Rapids success like he's our prospect.
-Thinks Howard can be a top6-8 goalie during the course of his contract.
-Helm feeling better, will skate at development camp.
-Wants to keep Kindl, says due for a raise.
-"If you got 10 good prospects, 6 will make it".
-Backman "going to camp"(I suppose development), then back to Sweden for another year before "turning pro".
-Says the veterans on the team are excited about moving to the East, play some new opponents. 
-Said multiple times they're disappointed with losing to Chicago even if it was a learning experience.
-Says that both sides probably could've gone longer term with Pavel, but that both were happy with another four years(in total). Hopes for one year extensions afterwards, says Pavel wouldn't ever play anywhere else in the NHL.
-Thinks true cup contenders are a thing of the past.
-Asked if Howard/Mrazek might turn into a Luongo/Schneider, Quick/Bernier etc. scenario. Says they have the option to play him another three years in the American league without worrying about waivers. At 21 years of age, they need him to play 60 games, not 15. Says next year is AHL for sure as Gus is signed, and then make a decision next summer if it's time to bring him up. Says he will play som pre-season games in the fall.
-Would love to get a legitimate top pairing/top3 defenseman, will make room if needed. 
-DeKeyser, Nyquist, Tatar, Andersson, Lashoff are expected on the team from the Griffins. 

-confirmed HBO 24/7.


#2422223 Hypothetical - Crosby soon to be a Wing. Who do you give up?

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 25 June 2013 - 02:16 PM

Looks like I'm fired.

#2422221 Wings looking to trade before using buyouts

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 25 June 2013 - 02:14 PM

Am I the only one who absolutely does NOT want to trade Tatar?  As in under no circumstances should Tatar be traded because he hasn't even had one full year in the NHL to show all that he's got?  I don't understand why anyone would want to trade away so much homegrown potential.  


Trade/buy out the "fat", pick up an FA or two who can play a nice supporting role on this team to Hank and Pav and keep our youth and let that benefit us in the future (a la Hank, Pav, etc).  


If anything, Kenny can use some of his plethora of defensive prospects as trade bait.  

#2421050 Flyers to buyout Briere

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 20 June 2013 - 01:25 PM

He is small, 35 years old, has a history of concussions, and just had the worst season of his NHL career.


We don't need another undersized center, let alone one clearly on the downslope, and certainly not when there are prospects waiting for a roster spot.

Nothing against Briere...but this^

#2421044 NHL considering ban on spin-o-rama in shootout..

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 20 June 2013 - 01:09 PM

New rule: in order to score a shootout goal a player must 1) skate through a series of ten cones 2) skate around a midget balancing 5 plates without making him drop any. 3) jump through a ring of fire 4) limbo under a pole 5) and then put the puck in the net.

Pav could do it...

#2421007 NHL considering ban on spin-o-rama in shootout..

Posted by Wingsfan72 on 20 June 2013 - 11:06 AM

What a stupid thing to dedicate thought to.  Just get rid of the shootout if they're going to take moves away.  I mean what is the point of the shootout anyways, besides entertainment for the fans.  The only thing I can understand is contact with the goalie, in which case they could implement  a strict "no contact" rule - not ban a specific move.  


Get rid of the shootout and bring in the 5min 3 on 3 OT, or whatever was being proposed a couple of years (?) ago.

#2420789 Datsyuk agrees to 3-year extension, $22.5m total, $7.5m/year

Pretty awesome story about how Pav became a Wing posted on MLive today.  Enjoy.
