really gotta feel for the guy... our Griffs are having some unfortunate early ending careers, that's possibly two in two years with Oulahen's situation last summer...

He's right. Nobody cares much to see you whine.


Excuse me, but what the hell is up with you? Two posts here that have nothing to do with Ritola but you choose instead to attack another poster? I wouldn't even bother bringing this up, but this is not the first time you've done this. NObody cares what you personally think of Aussie. But if you care that much about why we should care, why don't you just start a thread about it? And then you might as well add that empty room that somebody threw on here. A clue? This is NOT about you or other posters here making personal attacks. This is about a good hockey player who is in real pain in every sense of the word. Get.a.life. :nonono:

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

It happens.



I'm sure you do, so that you will not be deprived of a subject of complaint!


For someone that ******* NON-STOP about others complaining, you sure do a ton of frickin complaining about other people. Every post I read from you is a ***** fest about something another poster said.

Aussie is one of the most knowledgable people here on Red Wings prospects and there's nothing wrong with following Ritola and wanting him to succeed still. Too bad we can't ship you away to another team's board. Everyone would love that move.

Don't forget Igor Grigorenko. He went from World Junior scoring champ to fighting for his life to learning how to skate again all the way to bust.

Per Bob McKenzie, TB just put Ritola on waivers today.Update on his ear issue here.

This sucks for for Ritola for sure, I hope someone takes a shot on signing him. As well as obviously beating this thing!

He's also a Ritola slappy who went nuts and started vehemently disparaging Holland when Ritola scored a goal and an assist at the start of the season. Now he gets defensive whenever anyone brings it up.

Not to mention Greg Johnson had to retire of a heart condition right after we signed him a couple of years ago. i remember kozlov got his career a little sidetracked by a serious bus accident before he came over here to play years ago.

I definitely feel for him. As I found out I also might have the same disease. I severely injured my jaw November 2009 and as a result, I have ringing in my left ear that is sometimes deafeningly loud. It's not for sure Meniere's Disease, but it's possible that's what I have developed. Luckily, I have no dizzyness or hearing loss. But the constant ringing is sometimes very soul crushing. And lost my health insurance 2 weeks before this all started, so I've had to live with this for over a year now. But as of March 1st my new health insurance kicks in. So hopefully I can get surgery to correct this. Part of me actually hopes I do have Meniere's Disease, because its a disease that burns out and goes away over time. I just don't wanna have to live with this for the rest of my life. Hopefully Ritola gets over this soon. I'm sure he will eventually.

and jamie rivers

Veteran D-man Jamie Rivers is recovering from one of the scarier experiences a person can ever go through. Playing professionally over in Croatia, Rivers was forced to undergo emergency surgery to have his spleen removed. Due to the large amount of internal bleeding, Rivers heart actually stopped for nearly two minutes before being brought back to life. Electrical defibrillatorís assisted in the Doctorís effort to re-establish a productive heart rhythm.

There were three Doctors working on Rivers during surgery and at one point two of them had given up. Thankfully one of the Surgeons didnít stop.

From today's 'Afternoon Shift' Griffins blog:

"The enigmatic Igor Grigorenko (2007-08) appears to have found the stardom that he couldnít achieve in North America, standing fifth in the KHL with 23 goals for Salavat Yulaev Ufa."

Glad to see he's doing well after his injury. Really bummed about Ritola, he is such a character guy. I wish him the best.

Ritola finally had his break out season in my EHM NHL 07 game in 2014. A 50 point season!

Ritola was recalled from the minors and is playing against Boston tonight.

Just as an update for those who are interested.
