  1. To everyone here, this is not a joke. I want to offer a sincere apology. You are all here to have fun and I have acted like a total immature jerk. I would never act like this in person and I would be incredibly embarrassed if I ever did. I am embarrassed now and I apologize for being disrespectful, disruptive and wasting your time.

    A few weeks ago, during my suspension here, we a family member had a serious accident. It made me think about what is important and how to treat people. A nasty troll posting an apology to a bunch of strangers on a hockey forum might seem ridiculous, but I wanted to do it.

    I don’t know if I can have my account deleted, but I am going to enter in some password I can’t remember so I will essentially lock myself out. Not because I think I can’t control myself, but because even though the mods gave me another chance, I really don’t deserve it. Okay, another reason is I’m sure I could never regain any kind of reputation here, but I promise I won’t create another account and pretend to be someone else.

    Please enjoy your forum and best of luck to all of you.

    Has Blashill finally lost the team?

    Now now, unless you cite three reputable sources (in APA format no less) your opinion will not be considered valid here. There are high standards at play here and Blashill's incompetence will only be determined by a peer review process of the evidence.

    It seemed to work. My post went up! Sorry, but keep waiting and sorry I don't meet your elite standards for an activity that is essentially useless in impacting anything. Is there no hope for me here? What could I do? What form of public act of contrition will give me hope? Or perhaps I could simply start a new account with a new name? Perhaps I already have long ago? Perhaps with that account you and I have traded compliments? Yes, it's true.
  6. Yeah screw PETA man. Why not get old school biblical/Roman and sacrifice animals right on the ice? Slit a cows throat, burn a few chickens alive, shoot some puppies and kittens out of a canon.

    I just did a Google search and picked those. Search "Red Wings Swedish Mafia" and there are many hits including more reputable outlets. Did it all start with these rags or somewhere else? I have no idea, but at the time the stories seemed to be everywhere. Smoke = fire? Some truth behind it all? Doesn't seem implausible that the players do not respect his decisions. My disgust for Blashill makes me biased, I'll happily admit that.
  8. It's so obvious and so simple. What they REALLY need to do is execute the process!

    Nobody remembers this? https://www.hockeyfeed.com/nhl-news/breaking-shocking-rumors-of-players-overruling-their-coach-in-the-playoffs http://detroitsportsrag.com/the-red-wings-swedish-mafia-problem/ Small extract: Of course he lost the team, nearly two years ago.

    Slump started last year when,

    Hey, I resemble that remark! I see my epic experiment on manufactured online personas was wasted. FYI, you only have one portfolio that can consist of multiple mutual funds, stocks and other holdings.
  11. You get the prize! I'm 22, have maybe $170 to my name and am having a riot in my little experiment on creating fake online personas and seeing everyone respond with such profound and knowing judgements.
  12. Oh my God what an incredibly stupid thing to say about investments. Is this some of that "working class wisdom" someone mentioned earlier? Obviously you have no investments to speak of and/or know nothing about them. Remember Brexit? I lost about 2% of my total investments in a day. Why, because I have a well balanced asset allocation. 101 investment there bucko. Instead of running for the hills I bought even more international stock index funds (always buy low and sell high) and I have made a killing - about $200k. Perhaps my late reply serves my point. Rather than wasting endless hours writing 1000-2000 word simple minded tomes and believing my self-esteem, or anything of any real-world value, is tied to my participation in something as banal as a hockey forum, I have spent the past few months being a productive member of society and increasing my net worth. So many of your long-winded assumptions are so simple minded and utterly predictable. 1. That I am a phoney. Trust me I have money. Am I the richest person you ever met? Of course not. However, I make a good six figure salary, have saved/invested 30% or more of my salary for 25 years resulting in a multiple seven figure retirement fund. If that makes you envious, then get off your a$$ ike I did. 2. That I only value money and am a sad lonely person. I have an advanced degree and paid for 100% of my education myself. My work has benefited people both directly and invaluably as well as collectively in via published and highly cited research contributing to human knowledge. I did none of this alone, but with many other hard working people. I could have made MUCH more in industry. I have plenty of friends and family too. Money is not the end for me, it is the means to have control of my life so I can help those I care about. My point from the beginning was this forum has its little in-groups and self-anointed gurus whose big accomplishment in life has been exceeding the 1,000 post mark. Can you imagine these jokers doing this at “work” all day? Some job huh? if you find yourself thinking this is a good job to have, I have a hint. Loser. For those aspiring to be “in” - there is a better way. Accomplish something REAL in the WORLD. When you do, like I have, your forum heroes are revealed as a sad pathetic joke. People who spend what must be an hour or two a day posting “well crafted” arguments that accomplish... what? Absolutely zero. Take that same hour or two a day toward learning R, SQL, Python, html… and add some math, statistics or business. In six months to a year, instead of racking up a collection of meaningless online hockey buddies (and adversaries), you will open the door to making good money, having a real career and being your own boss. It is plain as day. Your "leaders" here are real life losers.

    Twilight years Zetterberg vs. Datsyuk

    I can't decide. I only wish they had been playing TOGETHER more when we had both. It was a duo almost unmatched in all of hockey, certainly in this era. Watch the old highlights... amazing stuff. I never bought into the excuse that we had to spread out their skills across lines. When playing together they were consistently the best line in hockey. As amazing as each was alone, together they exceeded the sum of their parts. We actually made the decision repeatedly to not put out the best line in hockey. That to me is/was insane. Argue all you want, I can not accept any rationale for separating the Euro Twins as much as we did.
  14. For hockey in general a 10, for the Wings and their current state, about a 3 and expecting to be disappointed further. I see us quickly joining the cellar in points as highly paid veterans under perform while youth is wasted, and then a long delay in accountability in finally firing Blashill. The new coach will come in, stir things up a bit and we will improve, but still miss the playoffs.

    Nazis using Wings logo

    Exactly and the Wings made a classy response to this with their statement plus getting the Wings/NHL lawyers involved probably scare these guys right off.
