I'd hardly call that the voice of reason. Or refreshing, for that matter.

"Blah blah blah GUYS WE TOTALLY CAN'T WIN EVERY YEAR IT'S OK IF WE DON'T WIN FOR ANOTHER TWENTY YEARS BECAUSE WE WON IN '97, '98 AND '02 AND TORONTO HASN'T WON IN DECADES blah blah blah ALL YOU GUYS DO IS COMPLAIN WELL LET ME TELL YOU ONLY ONE TEAM CAN WIN THE CUP blah blah blah...."

Side note: whiskey or vodka?


******* in real life or just play one on the internet? You add nothing.

I've been known to wipe my mouth, so yes, I'd say IRL.

If we were just gonna waste the 5 million, we should've signed Guerin and Markov in the off-season. Like c'mon Kenny, this team wont win the cup. Not even 100% healthy. I'll cheer for them till the bitter end, but ...

Team is going nowhere. Amazing that the huge slump won't even get Holland to grow some balls. No defensive depth and no scoring outside of Cleary and Zetterberg and Datsyuk. What a s***ty GM.

I appreciate Dombrowski even more now.

I said it yesterday. Mr. Illitch owns both the Red Wings and the Tigers. I would like one of the GM's to be the GM's of both teams. At least one has the balls to make a huge move that puts his team over the edge.

At least the Tigers GM would've made us a couple of move. The Tigers want to win, the Wings want to "rebuild the team after Yzerman".

I'm sorry when was the last Tiger's WS win?
And wasn't the tigers who won an astounding 119 games in 2003, oh no they lost 119.

But you are right to compare the two teams, one has been the model for success in the past 15 years and one hasn't won a title since '84.

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

Yeah going to the World Series really sucks.... rolleyes.gif

Opie, c'mon. The Tigers will probably make the World Series again, or come close. Lets say they do, World Series 2 times out of 3 years. The Wings havent been to the finals since 02. I'm sorry if I believe we have the best team in the league and should be trying to win rather then rebuild.

At least they make it to the dance or get damn close. He can take a team that won 119 games and take them to the World Series by making some aggresive moves that enables them to win and win big, but I guess that doesn't prove anything. Holland can learn from Dombrowski.

Before I get into this why not try comparing a sport that has a real cap, instead of the fake one that the Sox and Yanks laugh at every year!!
Pretty bold prediction considering the Red Sox have the same team with better parts (Ellsbury > Crisp), the Yankees are a pitcher or two away from being great again, The Indians are still very good, and Dontrell Willis and an overweight third baseman who will have to become a 1st baseman in 2 years aren't Huge additions. They are damn good I will give you that. Cabrera can Rake make no bones about it, but he is no Brandon Inge Defensively, but hey it is just third base a throw away position.
Inge is a Dan Cleary heart and Soul kind of guy, ask the White Sox what it was like when they gave up Aaron Rowand. You can not replace those intangibles. And Cabrera is loving his money, and is overweight, third base is not where you want you version of John Kruk!
The Tigers will be in a fight to win their division let alone the AL. Hell if they were in the NL I would punch their WS ticket for you now, alas they are not and have to deal with Bos, Cle, NYY, ana los a... the friggin' Angels, and Seattle got better (they won't win s*** though).
Who in the hell said they are rebuilding, last year was supposed to be the rebuilding year and they were great. This year they are continuing to build the youth, in a cap era you need youth. It really isn't that hard of a concept, you try to win now, without losing the future.
So the tiger's probably making the WS is close enough for you, but the wings being the best team in the NHL isn't.
You confuse me, if the wings made it to the SCF last year and lost would you be saying the same thing?

But you know, why don't you and Leftwinger, dabrua, go an form you own "I was a wing's fan but my fair weather fandom in me made me turn away even though they are still the #1 team in the NHL, because I wanted another player" discussion board.
