#2132034 Datsyuk, Rafalski Injury Update Thread

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 18 March 2011 - 01:41 PM

Remember when they actually used to say what the injury was? "Lower body injury" and other vague descriptions were only really used in the playoffs.

Nowadays it's practically like "Datsyuk injury? Who's Datsyuk? I don't know anyone by that name, and if I did I would have no information on his injury."


#2125935 Wings - Pens, 3/21/11

Posted by Rick Zombos Ghost on 04 March 2011 - 12:51 PM

I will be celebrating my birthday, March 21st, at the game. Pretty stoked that we play the Pens, at home, on it. Go Wings!

My question is, how many LGWer's will be attending also? Less importantly, yet to spark conversation that will make this thread worthwhile, what kind of game are you expecting?

Edit: someone please change the date to 2011. I knew putting the year on there was dumb...

Ill give you a dollar if you take Larry Murphy dollar hot dog sign and get on TV.


#2125335 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by stinky fish taco on 03 March 2011 - 03:12 PM

If everyone thinks that the Wings will continue with this defensive play when literally every single team that is in the playoffs, including the Wings, tightens up defensively, then I believe everyone is more of a chicken little and delusional than I thought.

just like last year when the wings GA/G went up from 2.50 to 2.75, right?

...oh wait.


#2122972 Teams' third jerseys

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 27 February 2011 - 03:05 AM

Sorry, you guys will definitely think this is a stupid question.. but what exactly is a third jersey?


A third jersey is basically an alternate jersey that some teams will use. Every team has a home and away jersey that they use ona regular basis, but basically in an attempt to make a few extra dollars a lot of teams have a 3rd or alternate jersey that they wear every few game, generally just features different colors and/or a different logo than the team usually wears.


#2120918 JLA Seating question

Posted by stevkrause on 23 February 2011 - 11:48 AM

Awesome fan spirit there!<_<

I understand that the building is not what it used to be .. but damn.... to never go to a game because of it!!

you're going to question my fandom based off of that?!?!? I take an annual trip to GR to watch the Griffins at Van Andel (side note - it's pretty sad when your AHL arena BLOWS AWAY your NHL arena), I watch every single game, stream SEL and SM-Liga games to watch our other prospects online, and have been to over 100 games at the Joe... my point is, I am not going to pay money to support a venue that I think needs to go away anymore, the live game experience is not JUST the product on the ice, but the environment too and the Joe is a hole these days... I am simply not going to accept "bare minimum" anymore for my entertainment dollar, when I can watch the game in HD on my 52 inch LCD in my cushy chair, with my bottled micro-brew beer and my bathroom 20 feet away, without dealing with the crowd OR the traffic, just to go to a s*** arena...


#2118561 Eric Brewer to Tampa Bay

Posted by Konnan511 on 18 February 2011 - 04:40 PM

Probably one of the biggest busts/disappointments in recent memory. Glad he found a new home, Hedman could use his veteran guidance.

yzerman is showing kenny how its done.


And Holland showed Yzerman how it's done last night.


#2113074 Forsberg Joins Avalanche

Posted by dat's sick on 08 February 2011 - 02:39 PM

Dude has been washed up for years and is making one last cash / glory grab.

Washed up? Dude has been dominating everytime he's set his f***ed up feet on the ice in the SEL the last couple of years. Last time he was in the NHL he almost singlehandedly got the Avs into the playoffs and was a big part of them getting to the 2nd round. In the Olympics 2010 he was one of very few bright spots in the game where Sweden was eliminated against Slovakia.

Cash grab? He's been playing for FREE for Modo in the SEL. And by FREE, I mean as in getting payed NO MONEY. Not only a little bit of money. NO. MONEY. Now he has signed af****** 1 million dollar contract. Guess what, I'm sure he'd play for zero dollars if it was allowed. If this was about money he probably would have saved himself about 10 operations on his foot and just signed for a KHL team or something.

He is doing this for himself. Because he loves to play hockey. And maybe a little bit to prove to people like you that he ISN'T washed up and that he still has hockey in him.

#2105068 Enforcer Poll

Posted by Finnish Wing on 25 January 2011 - 07:17 PM

I support the players you listed, and I also support big goons who have no talent other than intimidating people and punching them in their faces. And no I don't care that those players don't skate well or score points.

Just being completely honest with my feelings on this.

I gave you a +1 for being honest.

I'm guessing after one game you'll already be a better skater than Holmstrom, so that's one positive.

'Oh boy... well its a good thing Mickey isn't here'

This thread needs more Larry Murphy.


#2096005 Name Me a Better 2-Way Player Today than Henrik Zetterberg…

Posted by Konnan511 on 11 January 2011 - 04:03 PM

If it was the last minute of a game and we are up by one, I want Datsyuk out there. If it's the last minute and the other team is on the Power Play, then I want Zetterberg out there. If there is an empty net involved, i want Draper out there.


#2094462 Crosby Out with Mild Concussion

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 09 January 2011 - 02:24 AM

No s***. Where are all the Crosby defenders now? He's a ***** who thinks he should be untouchable, plain and simple.

esteef

Well, at least it wasn't one of the worst hits he's ever seen. That one happened to Franzen, right?

For the record, I think Crosby's a super-talented whiny little *****. But this forum's obsession with him has gotten just sad.

Who gives a crap? People complain about how the NHL gives him way too much attention, but how much do we give him here? He's one single player in the other conference that we'll never really see until the Cup finals if both teams make it that far.
