  1. Kronners hit was borderline. The elbow was on the follow through and I can't see if it hit teemu in the face or not. I'll re watch it a few more times but the way I see it is this. The HIT was clean, if the elbow got teemu during the follow through IN THE HEAD then a suspension is in order. This is my opinion and I'm not sure how the official rules wording is on a follow through elbow. As far as the wings getting away with a lot, perhaps the Ducks and Teemu need to revisit our first game against them, perhaps the goonery that took place was noted and the refs wanted to keep things in line. Maybe, just maybe 3(?) fights in one game... one RED WING game got the attention of the refs... or maybe the Ducks are known Goons. I did not see any calls against either team for 2 periods... were the ducks not ahead by 2 goals when the refs put the whistles away? Point is this, STFU about dirty hits and no calls if your team is a bunch of goon mongoloids who only know how to injure other players when down by a goal.
  2. Seriously.... this ^^^^ Relax, take deep breaths, Z will do just fine people.
  3. Did I just cheer for a preds win?!?! I need to go shower now.
  4. I hated bert last year, while some say he carried the wings for a month the only thing I seen him carry was Dats point total down. With that said I think he fits well with Mule, Dats was to flashy for bert, while mule compliments his style. The whole BFF line works and from what I can see Bert is looking good. But we are only 3 games into the season so Bert has plenty of time to regain my hatred of him... but I hope he doesn't.
  5. Malts, Mac, Stevie Y, Fedorov ( dont flame me, you know you love him too), Lids, Draper... these are the Red Wings I grew up watching. Thanks for the great run with us Malts, you did a hell of a good job.
  6. Haha me too, but I can't take credit for it. another poster on here used it and it kinda just stuck with me.
  7. If the defensive match ups were swapped ZDH would run over the other teams second D parings. I understand your point 100%, was just saying a good year from BFF would not indicate a bad year from ZDH.
  8. The BFF line is better than the ZDH line is some areas already. Its a more north south line than ZDH. Bert and mule are two big guys and the goals from that line will be gritter than ZDH line. with that said Z and Dats are gonna score more exciting goals than the BFF line.... IMHO I'm just thankful that it is even possible to debate this topic... it means we have two really good top lines. As for the ZDH line having a "bad year" if BFF compete for 1st squad, thats hogwash. Mule is arguably the biggest goal scorer on our team with talks of him being our next 50 goal guy, that line has tons of talent and potential and it would not be a bad year by ZDH to lose 1st squad to BFF - but a good year from BFF's line.
  9. Well it was my exaggeration you're talking about " crosby 2.0" and the point is simple... ritola does not matter, in fact miller does not matter, all that matters is that the real franchise players ARE in GR and will be coming up in a few years... in the mean time all we need is fodder for the 4th till they arrive.
  10. I sent you a PM on the subject, as to not start a personal squabble in the forum... mister big shot.

  12. I fail to grasp your attempt at an explanation. What am I showing by stating my opinion? Perhaps you could be more detailed as apposed to highlighting my statement and trying to pass it off as a rebuttal. If by showing my true colors you mean >> I think different systems produce different results. you are correct and I NEVER ONCE stated any differently. You're using deflection to advert the conversation away from a valid point I have made, most likely due to an inability to counter it with any logical reprimand. Nice edit by the way... ever hear of EXAGGERATION... you fail my friend... you fail.
  13. Man, Ritola is not a franchise player. If he was we would have been watching him play between mule and fil instead of bert. People, face it... Ritola is not Crosby 2.0, but reading some of this thread you'd think he was.
  14. Ritola's potential is trash compared to some of our other prospects. We don't need a "Who's to say" player at this point, we need guys who can get it done for a year or two while we bring up the real deal prospects. I just dont see the big deal. If he scores 149 goals and 633 assists next year for TB, guess what... I dont care. its a different system and style... Ritola has had his chance to prove himself with OUR style and he couldn't, so he got waived. The moral of the story is, "I could make a billion dollars this year but will I".. Get it?
  15. Apparently you are one of those people who can not read into the undertones of a statement and need it spelled out. M I L L E R I S B E T T E R I N H I S D E F E N S I V E G A M E T H A T S W H Y R I T O L A I S G O N E (miller is better in his defensive game thats why ritola is gone)
