Still jealous you never won the Cup, eh Jeremy?

I like Roenick for the most part, but he spends a bit too much time talking right out of his ass. That comment last year about Babcock disliking Americans made it hard to take him seriously.

Jeremy might be right, but personally I don't care that he says it any more than a poster here -- Jeremy is just a talking head and at this point his MO is getting in the headlines so he can continue making money post-retirement. Anyhow, eventually those deep playoff runs can take a toll on a team, and it's possible it's why the Wings have so many injury problems, with some bad luck or merely it exclusively being bad luck. It's a tough season for Wings fans, but even then there's still lots of promise this season. This team needed a little adversity instead of coasting into yet another Central division win and 1-3 seed.

Since when did people start caring what Jeremy Roenick thinks?

damn what the hell is his problem with the Wings, it seems like he has nothing but negative things to say about the wings at every turn.
There's no I in team, but there's a U in c***, so don't be little jealous c***s

Roenick also said Babcock is bias against American players last year.


Funny, seeing as our #2 D-Man and starting goalie are both American...

Roenick is similar to Don Cherry in terms of actually taking what he says seriously that is.

“[NHL contraction would be fine if] mediocre European players ... typical of most French guys in our league with a visor on, running around and playing tough and not backing anything up.”

“It would be a travesty if I'm not. I know they want a youth movement, and they need to have one, but it'd be disrespectful of the guys who have gotten Team USA to this point internationally.”

“I know nobody on that team has more points in the National Hockey League than me. So if they want to go that way, good luck.”

“I think they were holding the fact I haven't played in the last two World Cups against me. I'm a lot better player than my points indicate. I'm one of the guys that have (got) the USA to where it is today.”

“I've done a lot for USA hockey. This is really my last chance to be in the Olympics and they took it away from me.”

We should all listen carefully when the most important player in hockey speaks. At least in USA hockey.

I know a lot of you guys like Roenick. I never have, so I think anything he has to say is pretty much nonsense. But the media continue to give him space, and people will read anything. So there ya go.

A LOT of fans want desperately for the Wings to fail. He's just taking advantage of that to get his name mentioned. It's certainly not embossed on the Cup, so this will have to do, eh?

This is all good stuff and I especially agree with the bolded statement. I think the fact that they've been so good in the past has caught up with them a bit. Ah, the problems that result from quality play, eh? champs.gif And I want to think and hope that it's gonna pick up when our regulars start coming back.

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

According to some, we've been in a death spiral since 2003. How many times have we been told "the Wings are too old," "too slow," "too European," "too soft." Every year it's been something new, every year we contend for the Cup. Bring it, ya old wind bag!

But when was the last time our team was doing this poorly? Eventually those people are going to be right.
