  1. Nice boat. Looks like the S.S. Minnow. Sorry you couldn't keep it off the rocks. Must be depressing for you.
  2. hmmm really? weren't they like 14th in goals scored? goals against were mediocre at best maybe 12th or so? Anyway, that's not good is it? especially if you think the Wings "may" only need a "tweaking" with a couple of D then they might be a playoff contender again?! I hope you're right lol
  3. You manipulated a season's worth of data? This past season? What data did you manipulate that supports your statement that all the Wings really need is a couple of decent D men and all will be good and they'll be back to their winning ways again, a perennial play off favorite?
  4. Of course this is only because you like the Red Wings ... ? just wondering. lol
  5. Agree but something else they need are a couple gritty offensive wingers who are capable and willing to carry the puck into the offensive zone without taking the safe route to the outside along the boards where they are either moved off the puck in the corners by opposing players or forced to take low grade fluff shots at the net . This team is not a puck possession team and its time someone realized that.
  6. We could have used him last night. Might have made the difference.
  7. If its any consolation, the Kings are going to destroy the Hawks. Kings for the Cup!
  8. Has anyone heard anything about Filpula / injury? He went down hard on his back on the Shaw take down and was seen limping off to the dressing room in a bad. Obviously doesn't matter now from the game standpoint, but I'd sure hate to have it turn out to be a serious injury.
  9. Nope. Not giving Holland or Company a pass on this one. Been three years and someone had to see it coming. Hasnt' it? What are we paying these guys for?
  10. haha. No its not enough. So What? I think you're an angry person. Why direct your anger at Howson. Why Not Holland, which is where you really have a problem right now. Right/ Howson is just doing what he needs to do. Doesn't make him a bad GM. You didn't like his moves? Pretty sure he was just trying to improve his team. Get a grip:speech:
  11. Are your predictions any more accurate or reliable than MCSs?
  12. I'll be seeing my parade and Stanley Cup in Grand Ledge in a couple weeks. Won't miss it. The chances of seeing it again anywhere in Michigan in my lifetime are becoming slimmer by the day.
  13. Posted: 4:22 PM Jul 25, 2012 Stanley Cup Coming to Grand Ledge The date is August 10th Reporter: from Tim Staudt Email Address: mailto:tim.staudt@wilx.com?subject=Stanley Cup Coming to Grand Ledge width:425 and height: 325 and picwidth: 209 and pciheight: 159 Los Angeles Kings goalie Jonathan Quick holds the Conn Smythe Trophy after being named MVP after his team defeated the New Jersey Devils in Game 6 of the NHL Stanley Cup hockey final in Los Angeles, June 11, 2012. REUTERS/Danny Moloshok The Stanley Cup comes to Grand Ledge on Friday, August 10th. A parade through town will begin at the Fire Barn on the north end of Bridge Street and wind through town. The Cup is hosted by Grand Ledge native Matt Greene, assistant captain of the NHL champion Los Angeles Kings. He vowed to bring the Cup home for display and details are set. It will later be on display at the high school football stadium and later at other locations in town including City Hall. Other Grand Ledge teams will be involved in the parade at Greene's request and a Color Guard will be a part of the proceedings as well
  14. Shane Doan is merely exploring other options, which he should given the uncertainty surrounding the Dogs ownership, venue issues. I do believe he is genuine when he says he wants to stay in Phoenix if at all possible.

  17. What is it Von? I'm trolling cuz I'm not in line with your way of thinking or that of others on here?
  18. How do you know what you are asserting here to justify your claim that Howson is an idiot and a bad GM is true or relevant? Oh, ya I forgot you have a bunch of inside information because you work in the front office.
  19. No I don't make it my practice to pay attention to Howson, what he does, or his motives for doing so. I didn't say that you did. But having said that, I'll just say I do pay more attention to Holland and what he's doing or not doing as GM. Don't think that anyone can argue the last couple years have been bright in terms of Holland.
  20. Why is Howson the worst and a huge idiot? because Howson and the CBJ didn't do what the Wings fan base thought he should? Frankly I don't have a problem with the outcome on that deal. The whole thing was smoke and mirrors at best. And I have to question, as others here have suggested or expressed, what Holland is doing lately.
  21. Have to admit, given the extraordinary money thrown out there and the craziness displayed (which is really nothing unusual given professional sports today) particularly whats happened the the last 3 week during the frenzied FA nightmare, I've come around to this thinking as stated above. At this point, a CBA nightmare maybe a good thing. So fed up with the whole thing. Wouldn't travel the distance to see a game at any venue or have a beer in their house if they paid me, nor should anyone else.
  22. Rosival did play somewhat tough for the dogs during the playoffs, but I'm afraid an injury, possibly a career ending injury, would sideline him during the regular season. He's well into his 30s isn't he and has been somewhat injury prone throughout his career? I'm not confident he would last a full year if he was tasked with what the Red Wings need on the back end.
