#2044772 Memories of WIngs-Avs

Posted by Echolalia on 12 October 2010 - 12:47 PM

The feistiness that Howard has already shown in his limited time with the Wings (and in the AHL), I suspect he'll have a fight or two before too long.

He was the best 50-goal junior scorer the Wings ever had


#2043038 First Impressions

Posted by Echolalia on 09 October 2010 - 12:11 PM

My first impression is likely too good to be true over 82 games. Chicago lost, Pittsburgh lost, Washington lost, and the Wings won against a rival convincingly, with scoring from three lines, a Gordie-Howe hat-trick from an unlikely player, a shut-out from someone concerned with a Sophomore slump, a goal from a "washed up player who should've retired with Dallas", I couldn't have wrote a more ideal script.


#2041748 Hawks vs. Avs GDT

What a stupid commercial.

"Nobody has proven it better than the Blackhawks. Nobody. This team is still stacked..."


Yeah what the hell does that even mean? How have the Hawks proven better than everyone else they're best poised to repeat in recent history? Or even to win the Cup this year? Last time I checked a bomb went off in their lockerroom and only half the team made it out alive.


#2041037 So I finally caved

Posted by Echolalia on 05 October 2010 - 11:24 PM

My first game with the ol' Dolomite saw me rip a shot past the goalie from the top of the face-off circle. Its the hardest shot I've taken since messing my wrist up a couple months ago.

Go talk to Yzerman, Lilja.

Ugh, I don't want to see Yzerman and Howe's numbers hanging besides basketball giants.


#2039420 Ritola will be traded or waived

Posted by Echolalia on 02 October 2010 - 01:03 PM

Ritola for Steve Downie, straight up.
Yzerman owes us a favor.


#2039278 Ritola will be traded or waived

Posted by Echolalia on 01 October 2010 - 10:10 PM

Frankly I'd rather Miller be pushed through waivers. His skill is peaked and we know what we have with him. While we don't know where Ritola will peak or whether he'll turn out to have more upside than Miller or not, I think its worth the risk in this case. If he's better than Miller, great! We now have another top-9, maybe even top-6 player in our arsenal of young talent. If he's worse than Miller so what? Miller was playing the bottom line anyway and those guys are a dime a dozen in the NHL.
I hope that this whole "Miller has a spot" thing that keeps getting spewed out of Babs and Kenny's mouth is something of inspiration for Ritola. Maybe a way to see him playing at his absolute hardest to see if he has what it takes. Who knows?


#2038055 Wings release Aaron Downey

Posted by Echolalia on 29 September 2010 - 04:57 PM

Welcome to another year of cheapshots on Franzen, Datsyuk, and Zetterberg. The Brooks Orpik hit is only the beginning of what we're gonna see.


Downey really did a good job of preventing Brook Orpik from taking liberties that night, didn't he?


#2037653 Is Mike Modano This Year's Dallas Drake?

Posted by Echolalia on 28 September 2010 - 10:52 AM

I came in here to say Salei is more like this year's Drake than anyone else, but I see I was already beaten to the punch. <_<


#2036538 9/24 Pre-season GDT: Chicago Blackhawks at Red Wings

Posted by Echolalia on 24 September 2010 - 10:31 PM

The only players who take the preseason seriously are prospects and Brooks Orpik.


#2036484 9/24 Pre-season GDT: Chicago Blackhawks at Red Wings

Posted by Echolalia on 24 September 2010 - 08:16 PM

Not whining, since its the truth.

Also were going to see it all year so that "its preseason" argument doesnt wash, either.


Oh Mindfly! I didn't recognize you there.


#2036395 9/24 Pre-season GDT: Chicago Blackhawks at Red Wings

Posted by Echolalia on 24 September 2010 - 07:21 PM

Datsyuk still amazes me with his puck handling. Everytime he gets the puck he still makes me go "Wow".


No kidding. The guy scans the front of the net and everyone is covered, so what does he do? He spins around back into a blanket of Chicago players and gets them all spun up, then feeds in to the point to continue the cycle.

Most guys would've just shot the puck.


#2036121 Hit on Franzen worthy of suspension

Posted by Echolalia on 24 September 2010 - 10:00 AM

I'm all for it... but everybody better get ready to hear some serious Moore talk whenever Bertuzzi gets in a fight if he does decide to be an enforcer...

:o


I hear serious Moore talk every time Bertuzzi does anything of note, whether it be physical or scoring a nice shootout goal.
