Datsyuk costs an extra 442,852 dollar difference per point more than Ritola!

what a waste,we should trade him for Ritola to save cap space


Lol. Are you seriously trying to compare Datsyuk to Ritola? Only on LGW.com. /facepalm. What's next, a comparison of Lidstrom to Lebda? :ph34r:

Look, Hudler played multible more games with better talent (and gets more ice time) than Ritola and it's only a whopping 3 points differenceand same +/- statistics. Hudler get's paid $2.2 million more per year.

Like I said, nobody here should throw rocks at glass houses when we have our own "dead weight" to worry about. Not only do we have our "dead weight", but they are taking up almost $5 million in cap space to put about the same amount of numbers.

But you guys can keep on spinning this how ever you like, the facts remain the same.

That's what this thread was going to be immediately when the subject was not solely about giving kudos to Ritola.


Congratulations for doing that. :thumbup:

Mike Modano signing has very little or nothing to do with Ritola not being for the Wings. This is largely about your personal hatred for Modano which is ridiculous, that is largely why you bought it up.

I wouldve liked to have kept Ritola here too, cool. But Modano is not to blame. How about Jiri Hudler preventing Ritola a roster spot huh? Drew Miller? How come you aren't playing the blame game with them?

Ritola had his chances for remaining a Red Wing didn't pass the test. That's not the fault of other players, that's not management's fault, that's Ritola's own doing. Management's job is not to cater to the needs of Ritola.

There was absolutely no reason whatsoever to bring Modano up in this thread from the start.

-----

Congrats to Ritola for getting his first NHL goal and I hope he does well in the future. That SHOULD be the topic at hand.

My personal hatred for Modano? A bit over the top perhaps? :lol:

I'll give you credit for making one of the most amusing posts of the YTD. "Ritola now has 1G and 1A! GOSH! Holland is a MORON!"

Not in the slightest.

It's either that or you disapproval for him being signed.

Because whenever his name is mentioned and you are a part of it, you're always pissed off pretty much.

EDIT: So I'll ask you again, and don't dodge the questions this time.

Why single out Modano for Ritola not being here? Why not Miller who essentially was competing for that final forward roster spot with Ritola? Why not Hudler who returned from a 1-year abscence? He took a roster spot then didn't he?

Why the beef with Modano in this situation, and not any of the other forwards?

If it's age/coming close to retirement? How about Draper? Why aren't you pissy at Holmstrom preventing a spot with Ritola?

You turd, i was literally about to creat a thread :P

BAD HIT: Ritola deserved the five-minute major penalty he received in the second period when he not only checked Matt Moulson from behind into the boards, he left his feet and hit Moulson with an elbow in the back of the head.

Ritola was not available for comment, and Boucher sounded as if supplemental discipline by the league was possible.

"If it's a hit that deserves suspension, you have to live with what you do," Boucher said. "I know him. He's not a cheap-shot guy at all. He's a skill guy. If it's a bad hit, it's a bad mistake."

Lets be honest, if a Red Wings youngster did that, everyone would be pumped.

Hudler would still probably miss and fall on his own ass somehow.

Yeah because the guys on this site who like tough players like abdelkader would really love seeing the red wings getting embarrassed with some little skilled guy jumping into the backs of peoples heads...

RIP BOB PROBERT #24
