#2423255 Jonathan Ericsson - should we consider trading him?

Posted by Echolalia on 28 June 2013 - 10:38 PM

Trading Ericsson would put a massive hole into our lineup and undo years of scouting and developmental work, and we would be getting in return a player with no guarantee that he would even crack the lineup, let alone benefit the Wings. At this point the scouting and development which made Ericsson into the player he is today would have to start over on whomever we drafted with the pick.

If you're donating your time and money for the betterment of those in need, I feel you should be immune to any criticisms of where those resources are allocated.

That's a shame.  It will be a bummer to have all the media jumping down his throat when USA wins gold.




#2417878 Puck Over Glass

Posted by Echolalia on 05 June 2013 - 01:26 PM

I like the rule. Not only has it removed delaying the game as a viable way to alleviate pressure, but it also rewards good forechecking teams, because defenders are more likely to accidentally shoot the puck over the glass when they're being heavily pressured.


#2417060 2013 Detroit Red Wings Eulogy

Every post season Puck Daddy posts eulogies of playoff teams which are eliminated, written by fans of rival teams.  Sometimes they're really lame, sometimes they're amazing.  This year's Detroit Red Wings eulogy is amazing.  At least I think so.

Anyone know what kind of fish those are? 

 

Man now I'm hungry...  Damn Pav and his awesome fishing skills. 

 

Those are smallmouth bass!  Looks like Pavs knows how to dangle worms just as well as pucks!




#2409083 Jokes, know any?

Posted by Echolalia on 21 May 2013 - 09:32 PM

awesome thread idea

 

A business man was having an affair with his secretary, and one Saturday afternoon he was over at her place.Things got a little frisky and after the deed was done, both the man and the secretary fell asleep.  A few hours later the man wakes up in a panic and instructs his secretary to go find his shoes, and rub them in the grass and dirt outside.  Confused, she obliges, and the man puts his shoes on and drives home to meet his wife, who had been waiting for him in the living room.

"Where have you been??" She asks accusingly.

"Wife, I cannot lie to you.  I've been having an affair with my secretary.  We made love all afternoon."

Looking down at his shoes, the wife responds "You filthy liar!  You've been playing golf!"

#2400783 Leaving a job.

Posted by Echolalia on 09 May 2013 - 09:46 PM

I will be leaving my job at the end of the month to start medschool, and the people that I work with are all really awesome and we have developed into something of a family over the last year or so.  We goof around at work, tease each other, help each other out, support each other in tough times, grab dinner and drinks, movies, etc etc.  These friendships are worth hanging onto, so I will make it a point to keep in touch and meet with them whenever time permits.  I can't help but think about how I'm going to miss seeing everyone on a daily basis, but at the same time, this job (while fun and stimulating) will not provide me with the opportunities that going to school will, so its in my best interest to leave.  Besides, going to school (or in your case a new job) will be a new setting with a whole new group of people that you can befriend. 

I didn't know you had aspergers, Duck Guy!




#2398724 WCQF Game 4 GDT : Ducks 2 @ Red Wings 3 (OT) - (Series tied, 2-2)

Posted by Echolalia on 07 May 2013 - 01:13 AM

I just got back from the game and omg my voice is so shot. Easily the best Wings game I have ever been too. Howard played amazing and saved our asses more than a couple times.

 

The crowd was unreal. I don't know how clear everything on TV was but there was a "Let's go Red Wings" chant literally every 15 seconds and the "You got Kronwalled" chant was just so epic. Nice to see the "Todd Bertuzzi" chant back as well. For my girlfriends first game ever, she is now spoiled if I ever take her to a regular season game. I don't have anything else to say, that was so great!

 

I was there too!

I have never heard the Joe that electric in all my years of attending games.  I wish I could watch the game again on TV to see how much of our screaming translated to FSN or NBC.  I cannot speak at all right now with how hoarse I am.  What a night!




#2397241 Abdelkader suspended 2 games for hit on Lydman

Posted by Echolalia on 06 May 2013 - 09:07 AM

That message went out the window with the unpunished Weber headslam.


I agree. Weber should have been removed from that series for at least two games, perhaps more. But we aren't discussing Weber's actions from last year, we are discussing Abby's hit from last game, and that one they got right.
The Wings aren't given a free pass because the league fell on its face with the decision to not suspend Weber last year. Everyone on the ice still needs to be accountable of how they play.

Posted by Echolalia on 05 May 2013 - 11:12 PM

They got the call right. I don't think it was a malicious hit, but it was careless, and the league is really trying to remove contact to the head from the game. They let this one slide and that message goes out the window.

#2390645 4/27 GDT - Red Wings 3 @ Stars 0

Posted by Echolalia on 27 April 2013 - 05:41 PM

I can't wait to see Darren Helm score tonight!   Wait, he hasn't been playing, you say?  Well then I look forward to seeing Todd Bertuzzi dominate the corners and feed Dats the puck!  Erm, he's out too?  Well I'm still really excited to see Sammuelsson shoot the puck 15 times into the shins of the opponent but score on the 16th shot! Oh, he's missed the whole season?  Well at least Cleary has been injured and missed all season too right?  Right?? ...You mean to tell me he has been playing this entire time?

 

So tell me again how is it that we are even in position to win a playoff spot again??  Oh well.   Do whatever it is you've been doing and get the two points, in spite of everything! 




#2388444 Dekeyser Nickname Time

Posted by Echolalia on 23 April 2013 - 05:59 PM

If this forum were bigger on memes and running jokes, I would suggest we just forget about DeKeyser and change all of our usernames to just about everything that has been mentioned so far
