#2034747 Wings name Red & White Teams (also send 13 back down)

Posted by Echolalia on 20 September 2010 - 10:55 PM

This is probably true lol. We are so deep this year, I kind of want to see a rash of injuries just so I can watch some of our prospects play.

I kind of want to see you get an injury of rashes just for saying that.

This is still going on?

#2034120 Traverse City Prospects Tournament and Wings Training Camp Coverage

Posted by Echolalia on 17 September 2010 - 10:27 PM

Oh, one rant that I have is I am so sick and tired about reading about Brendan Smith's underage drinking thing. I want to read hockey stuff about him, no stupid stuff he did a few years ago... Jounalists and reviewers need to get off it because the 'drinking' stuff is getting stale, and quick. I want to read about how well he did or didn't do in the game... not BS stuff he did when he was 16. f***!

That's three more years the Wings don't have to worry about Chicago in the playoffs.

If Holland can somehow land this guy in the Griffins it would be monumental for the development of our prospects down there (not to mention the best "depth" signing all year).

As long as Babs is in the same room they'll be preoccupied with other concerns.

Insert death stare here

Tatar does not take breaks.

#2032238 Line excitement

Posted by Echolalia on 10 September 2010 - 09:10 AM

Even though lines change about 300 times per season, I really like how Babs' projected line-up is looking. Problem is, I don't know which line I'm most excited about?

Datsyuk-Zetterberg-Homer was the best line in the league a couple years ago, when they had the time to establish chemistry (and we had the depth to allow them to). I'm pretty pumped about their domination potential, and doing it through all those highlight-reel plays. Oh, and Homer is goofy as hell.

Bertuzzi-Filp-Franzen is probably the line that I can comfortably say I'm the least excited about. Bert is a way-hot to way-cold kind of guy, Filp has shown flashes of brilliance but IMO has yet to prove himself as a legit second-line center. Hopefully this year is it. Honestly the only thing that hooks me into this line is Franzen but that's because of his individual efforts. By the way, I'm excited to hear that he's feeling as good as he ever has and he's looking forward to tearing it up out there.

Cleary-Modano-Hudler is way sweet to see on the third line. Cleary feels revitalized and provides plenty of grit for a bottom six line. Hudler is definitely more than capable of stomping on the opponent, and Modano, despite being on the cusp of retirement is a story in itself. I expect these guys to get a lot of ice time, and a lot of points (at least for a third line).

Abby-Helm-Eaves is crazy energy and crazy speed. It has been quite a while since I've looked forward to seeing the fourth line on the ice, especially considering there's no enforcer. Just pure energy. Oh, and Abby started boxing.

Really its between the 1st 3rd and 4th lines for me, but I really can't narrow it down. How bout you guys?

#2031828 Lidstrom's defensive partners

If you end up with some statistical data to support a "Lidstrom effect", I'd be really interested to see the results.

Try taking a 98.75% pay cut and see what its like living life earning the national median.

#2030816 The NHL fan base is growing...

Posted by Echolalia on 03 September 2010 - 12:28 PM

I guess I never really thought about the stereotypes of women and hockey. My mom was the one to formally introduced me to the sport, and since then I've been surrounded by both men and women who genuinely love the game. There are certainly plenty of hockey-moms, puck bunnies, and supportive girlfriends/spouses, but I'm comfortable saying there are definitely more women out there who care about the sport that they're watching, and not so much the players that are in it.

I didn't realize the recession in Detroit was over already.

#2029263 Osgood

Posted by Echolalia on 25 August 2010 - 06:27 PM

Osgood is probably the best value goaltender of the past 20 years. He's a solid goalie, either best of the average of worst of the elite (however you want to look at it), but because he wont be taking 5+M from a team, he gets surrounded by elite talent. The consequence is success.

Vancouver is looking pretty solid these days. Imagine what they'd look like without Luongo's contract.
