#2203801 Brunnström to try out for Wings

Posted by hooon on 15 August 2011 - 12:19 PM

You say that like Ville Leino has done anything except sign a contract too big for his britches.

You say that as though Eva's standard of excellence is grounded in anything that even approaches rational thought.

I'm all for the 3 dicks lineup... Boughner, Hitchcock, and Babcock.

#2186304 Epic Boooing of Bettman

Posted by P. Marlowe on 16 June 2011 - 08:23 PM

I felt bad for him. I don't care if someone dislikes the way he does his job, but booing him like that... Gets too personal.

Like someone said on the other thread: the Cup presentation isn't about Bettman, it's about the Cup and the winning team.

I'd really like to see us hire Hitchcock and Boughner, both have been really successful and can add a fresh voice inside the locker room

2 '***** and a Boughner, you say?

"Those can't do, teach."

And those who can't teach, teach gym.

#2175136 Jonathan Ericsson Appreciation Thread

Posted by Heaten on 13 May 2011 - 02:00 PM

I have a bad feeling he'll be re-signed.

Holland needs to re-sign Ericsson. He's been fine and kills penalties really well. He still scored 5 points in the playoffs and had 15 points and was a +8 in the regular season. Ericsson still has upside. I think $1.25 per year is a good deal for him.

#2159758 How would you coach the opposing team?

Posted by egroen on 27 April 2011 - 11:31 PM

Take blind runs at Datsyuk.
Don't bother to clear the crease, Detroit is inept there.
Rotating goalies twice every period confounds the Wings.
Play your enforcers. All of them.
Don't waste your time chasing rebounds.
Shots from the red line are key.
Slow and steady vs. Detroit.
Taunt Bertuzzi.
Focus top defensive pairings on Helm.
Find a way to get C. Lemieux back.
Murray needs to be on the ice every second with Datsyuk.
Thornton needs his fast food.
Remember, Detroit is old - that means they suck.
Exploit Lidstrom.
Play keep away in the neutral zone.
Work on endurance: Run the bleachers before and after every game.
Neimi just won a Cup: Count on him to steal most games.
Stare down Babcock.
Study hours of tape, and finally figure out just what Holmstrom is saying.
Tony Little motivational tapes coupled with sleep deprivation.
Publicly insult and mock Gordie Howe, Steve Yzerman and the Ilitches.
Relax, you beat them in 5 last year.

And finally: Touch the Octopus!

Our PK sucks.

#2159941 Throwing an octopus at the Joe no longer allowed

Posted by esteef on 28 April 2011 - 11:53 AM

Fans will just have to change protocol. When someone is going to throw one, everyone in close proximity should stand up and gather around so security can't see who actually threw it.


#2159708 Question: Why do Wings fans hate the Canucks?

I'm surprised this thread isn't titled: Question: Why do Wings fans hate the 2011 Stanley Cup Champions Vancouver Canucks?

I have no strong feelings about them one way or the other.

#2159406 Greetings from LetsGoSharks.com

Red Wing Fans -

I wanted to extend an olive branch before the start of the series and wish you the best of luck. I think we're all eagerly waiting to see how it plays itself out.

LGW and LGS have been affiliated for several years. Matt S and I published our sites as part of a network for several years with the intent of driving traffic across participating websites. Both our sites are a couple of the oldest on the internet, so I'm glad to see LGW is still going strong.

For those that choose to post on LGS, you'll need to register (as is the case here). You'll find the majority of folks on LGS are pretty respectful and good natured, so it's a nice place to talk hockey and get perspective from opposing fans. In any case, I always encourage our regulars to visit LGW AND behave themselves. Most will try and carry their handles over with them, so you'll be able to reconcile folks between sites. If anyone of our regulars gets out of hand here, email me. Douchbaggery here will only incite reciprocation on LGS, and I can tell you that it's a pain in the butt having to deal with such nonsense. I will sanction any one of my regulars who misbehaves here...we all just want to talk hockey!

We all look forward to good natured ribbing. The graphics threads are by far the highlight of the year, so bring it!

Thanks and good luck,
Mike Lee
