Sorry to burst your bubble but I'm having quite the time here, so I think I'll stick around even after we take the series 4-1 ;)

Oh and don't get all petty insults with me because I'm telling it like it is. You guys would LOVE to grab Weber if Nashville didn't keep him & you'd be a liar if you say otherwise. Like one of your own said, don't throw Weber under the bus for one bad incident. The guy is an overall great player who has next to never had any history of unnecessary or foul play to be such a physical d man.

Yep, we once hated a guy by the name of Chris Chelios and then he became a Red Wing. But besides that, if the situation was reversed I would not defend a Red Wing player for a WWE move like that.

Weber deserved a suspension of at least one game, as a message that this isn't acceptable. Instead, the Predators basically mocked the ruling. Players reportedly joked about taking up a collection to help Weber pay the fine. Andrei Kostitsyn playfully shoved Weber's head into the glass at the end of practice, re-enacting the incident to the amusement of teammates.

if this is true im losing even more respect for the preds.

I never had any to begin with. We're winning this series and then Weber can bang his own head against the glass of a TV screen while watching the Wings play in the second round.

Just found out I'm in Section 105, Row 1 for Tuesday's game. I need sign suggestions that won't get tossed by security regarding Weber. Let 'em rip!

Coach Mike Babcock said he went for a run before his news conference specifically to clear his mind of the topic. When asked if the Wings needed to not let thoughts of retribution be a factor for Game 2, he said: "Well, we don't have the personnel to get back at Weber. So we might as well get on with that. This is the way our team is built, and it's been built like this for a while. To me, it doesn't matter what anybody does -- when you win the game, that's what it's all about. So let's get past any of that."

aaaaaand initiate vomit sequence.

Once again the media catching a situation with a photo that could be interpreted the wrong way (which it is) and causing a stink for their own benefit.

Yeah... when I heard that I was filled with a mix of disgust, anger, and embarrassment. He's 100% right, of course, but its pretty damn sad...

OK. :lol: I normally wouldn't respond, but you just destroyed any vestige of credibility anyone here might have been affording you. Unless, of course, you said this tongue in cheek. Which I doubt. :rolleyes:

So do you care to explain how this photo can be misinterpreted, because i'm not seeing a single other way to view it currently... and I can take off my homer glasses. I just don't forsee any type of drill inwhich you grab one of your teammates head and pretend to bash it into the boards, but hey maybe its the new age style hockey huh? Oh well, the Predators can make a mockery out of this situation. I just hope you guys realize it takes four wins to get past this round, and starting childish s*** like that fuels veteran teams that have the experience.

Kostitsyn: "What's wrong, Shea?"

Weber: *sniffle* "Oh, nothing... I just feel sooo bad about this Zetterberg thing. Its weighing heavily on my mind..."

Kostitsyn: "I know, buddy. But thanks to that fine, you'll know better next time. And it goes to a fund for head-smashed players, so chin-up"

Weber: *sniffle* "Thanks, buddy. Can... can you just... hold me for a bit? I don't want the guys to see me so upset"

Kostitsyn: "Sure thing, comrade"

Its okay, Sergei was simply just showing Weber what not to do in a hockey game!

"You can't do THIS, in a hockey game.... captain"

"Oh okay."

Z needs to post pictures of his cracked helmet so these nashville fans shut up. I still think even if he did post them preds fans would be saying they were photoshopped, or he took a hammer to his helmet. :rolleyes: Or blame it on the helmet company, and say we need new helmets if that little force cracked it.

Zetterberg is ok so im over it. However I want to chime in about everyone complaining about how dirty he is, what an idiot he is, disgrace to capitancy blah blah blah. You guys do relize this is hockey right? Almost every captain in this league has a little dirtiness and snarl to them except for ours. I would welcome Weber to our team with open arms, maybe a few players would be more esitant to snow shower Jimmy or run roughshod down low.

You almost had me there. Weber sniffling, Kostitsyn being the nice cuddly guy (possibly having been friendzoned by Weber). Unfortunately, it looks like Weber has a big grin on his face. To me, that's possibly the worst part of this picture. He should be telling his team mates that his actions reeked of douchebaggery, and should not be used as an example, or imitated even in jest. Seriously, I hope Detroit resigns D-Mac...just for one game will do, I think.
