Not sure if serious


#2105069 Enforcer Poll

I gave you a +1 for being honest.


I gave you a +1 for positively enforcing honesty.


#2105047 Enforcer Poll

Posted by Echolalia on 25 January 2011 - 06:44 PM

Even in the 90s when there was no cap, the Wings fighters were also regular point-getters. Shanahan was a beast with the puck, Kocur almost broke 40 points, McCarty almost broke 50. Hell, even Probert was known to light the lamp.

No enforcer. Its a waste of roster space, they never fit into the wings' system of rolling four balanced lines and will put further strain on the top two lines to do the bulk of the scoring.

Currently completing a double major in biology and pre-med (biomedical science), and minors in Chemistry and German.


Go Broncos!

also: no enforcer, BS in biomedical science, double minor in chemistry and psychology, currently interviewing at medical schools (Wayne State was yesterday, MSU is on Thursday) for Fall 2011.

offer sheet to doughty, give him lidstrom money for the next 10 years if thats what it takes.


I would love nothing more than to have Doughty in a Wings' uniform, but he's gonna be a King for life, imo

Oh, don't be immature.

...It's just maple syrup to put on all the waffles.


That is the goofiest avatar I have seen on these boards

Hello Nabby. Goodbye Nabby.


#2100792 Which NHL player have you met

Posted by Echolalia on 20 January 2011 - 06:19 PM

My old hockey coach was a financial adviser for a lot of the Wings. One day our team is getting dressed in the lockerroom for practice and Shawn Burr walks in with his hockey gear. I was especially fortunate to play on a line with a winger who rarely showed up to practice, so coach put Burr on my line to do drills and plays and stuff. One of the coolest experiences I have ever had was having Shawn Burr feed me the puck in a practice 3-on-2 for a goal. Also, that guy was ripping wrist shots from the blue line harder than any of my teammates' slap shots (this is midget hockey, btw).
My coach also invited Steve Yzerman to our end-of-the-year hockey party. We're all in our coach's basement shooting pool and coach walks down with Stevey Y behind him and is like "Boys, I'd like to introduce you to a friend of mine." Stevey's all quiet and shy and just goes "Hi, guys."


#2099203 1/18 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Penguins 4

Boy Zetterberg sure is going to be lonely out there without Crosby to bug.


#2097854 Holmstrom suffers a broken hand

Posted by Echolalia on 15 January 2011 - 12:18 AM

Thank God we have such a ridiculously deep team. Imagine if this s*** happened to any other team. Hell, look how Pittsburgh is faring without one: Sidney Crosby.


#2096436 Red Wings asked NHL not to pick Zetterberg for all star game

Posted by Echolalia on 12 January 2011 - 06:15 PM

I think the league should consider moving the ASG to the off-season. Put it around the time of the awards-show (hell, you could play it in Vegas annually in hopes of getting more fans) and opening of free-agency. It would bring a little more excitement to a pretty long and barren summer.


#2094639 Stuart out 6-8 weeks with broken jaw

Posted by Echolalia on 09 January 2011 - 04:37 PM

6 games I think is appropriate, at least when I try to be unbiased.


#2093666 Stuart out 6-8 weeks with broken jaw

Posted by Echolalia on 08 January 2011 - 05:53 PM

I've always advocated punishments like that for really out-of-line injuries/hits like what happened to Stuart. The league needs to start cracking down on head shots.


I would hate for someone who absolutely decimated a guy with a horribly cheap hit to the head get off free because the player that was hit just happened to miss 0 games.
Likewise, I would hate for someone to miss the entire season on a questionable hit that happened to concuss the player (with a bad history of concussions) for 82 games.


#2093660 Osgood might need groin surgery

Posted by Echolalia on 08 January 2011 - 05:48 PM

who will be injured next in what game and what body part?

I call Darren Helm on Monday against the Avs with a broken arm


I call Colonel Mustard in the ballroom with the lead pipe.
