I get what you are saying but to me it has already been erased. We can't afford to loose him. Unfortunately where will it come from?? Nowhere. That's not how the team is built.

I would prefer to struggle with Yzerman re-building the team then struggle KNOWING that Kenny isn't going to do what we need. How long is Yzerman's contract? This is not about the Wings going home early again, this is about not appreciating the same kind of team Kenny does.


Our bottom six players should draw straws for who will be the one to end Weber's season with a dirty hit from behind.

And Shanahan can forget about his number ever being in the rafters (not that it would have been anyway). He's suspended players all season for quick time collisions, but this obviously dirty and thought out play doesn't get a suspension. What a tool.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Angry as hell and have a lost a great deal of respect for Shanahan. Another NHL puppet controlled by Bettman afterall.

Unleash Bertuzzi. If he reminds Weber what he's capable of, he erases the debt for what he did to Moore in my eyes.

Your kidding right? Bertuzzi is the biggest wimp ever :lol: :lol:

Can someone find/post this?

Ask and ye shall receive. The top screencap is from after Zetterberg's goal in the 2nd Period; bottom screencap after the turnbuckle move. From pristine Warrior helmet, complete with logo, to no logo, noticeable chunk out of the helmet (possible damage to the number 40 on the top, but could be reflection).

The league needs to fold. It wont even protect its assets. In all honesty, I hope after the lockout it does fold. I have been watching the NHL for 30+ years and I can tell you this league doesnt even resemble the hockey I grew up watching. Since the lockout Bettman and Co have completely ruined this game.



I hope they fold and the teams that actually make money form their own league. Betman and Lemeiux can have their own little league. One where no one makes any money and only Crosby is protected.

Couldn't be put any better! Illitch should take his billions along with the other Billionaire owners and resurrect the WHA! This is, by damnit, a World League, so tell Bettman and his special rules for inferior teams and players, to take a freakin hike! While we're at it, let's tell the US Government the same thing! Rise up! Take over your lives! Save your family! Bring back REAL hockey!

Your kidding right? Bertuzzi is the biggest wimp ever :lol: :lol:

put him back on the roids...

Sure am glad we have 90% ******* on this team. They didn't care when Malkin swung a stick at Z, they didn't care when Datsyuk had to fight for himself, or Howard, but Holland loves this team... f*** HIM

But we don't want to have to give a roster spot to someone who can't play more than 5 minutes. We want guys who can play outside of just being a pair of fists. Like Emmerton... <_<

Good eye.
But my most coveted thing is a high self-esteem
And a low tolerance for them telling me how to lean
See the most important parts are the ones that are unseen
The Wings don't make you fly and the Crown don't make you king
Now God don't like ugly, ain't too happy bout pretty
I am ignorance's enemy so stay out of the vicinity of...

Ilitch should sanction ("foot the bill") for Kenny or Babs to go on a public rant about this incident. This will of course, force the NHL's hand to 'discipline'/fine the GM or coach something ridiculous like $10K and this will really show how effed up this league has gotten. A rant about the hit would result in a $10K fine or more, whereas Weber was fined $2.5K.

I only hope that this is the turning point for the series (like Rome's hit on Horton last year in the SCF) and that Red Wings will play out of their minds and whoop their dirty asses, preferably in 5 in their home arena.

I was pissed after the incident and now even more so after the ruling.

Maybe our D men should shoot shoot high and hard at the net. Honestly Im tired of this conversation.

Either this team steps up and takes this situation as a motivator or they cower and fold. Either way this situation is over.

BTW, Ken Holland you have a lot of work to do for next year. I suggest getting some sleep now because you need to be working the phones the instant we are no longer playing hockey.

Slowly through the years, I'm getting a grasp on the NHL's priorities.

A repeat offender (Weber) plays Dick the Bruiser on Z, and gets less than a slap on the wrist.

A stellar player in NHL history (Lidstrom) gets suspended for how many games? for missing the all-star weekend when he was sick several years ago.

Who can figure?!?!?!?

No one ever told Gary Bettman the "sticks and stones" mantra. More likely to be punished for speaking your mind in this league than causing bodily harm to another player outside the bounds of the rules.

The leagues priority is to keep the high-end players in the game, no matter what. Malkin jumps Zetterberg with a swinging stick and gloved fists, earning automatic suspension? All of a sudden its not in the "spirit" of the rule. Orpik knees a player for the 3rd or 4th time? Look everyone, over there! Tortorella is fined for making comments to the media! Weber pulls one of the most blatant cheapshots I've seen with clear intent to injure? We fined him the "maximum"; next time he'll be in BIG trouble; no injury, no foul; I think his glove might have softened the blow; Zetterberg hit him first; "playoff hockey"?

Only players that can be suspended are 3rd-4th line players, with the rare exception.

Bettman is a lawyer and much like anything run by lawyers: the NHL is a clusterf***

Look at Congress, almost all lawyers.

You do know we were the number one team in hockey during the regular season before the injuries came right? We are fine, the next game won be a penalty fest and I bet the wings win something like 3-1.
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm still trying to figure out where this logic comes from with your Red Wings fans. If you lost to the Predators who couldn't convert on their PP (one of their bread and butter weapons) and could only score on the Preds on your PP, then how do you see this as a positive?

If game 2 isn't a penalty call fest then how does Detroit score? You were only able to convert 2 of 10 chances in game 1.

What if the Preds PP starts clicking like usual and puts a few in the net along with "flukey" goals?

You couldn't beat the Preds when they played some of their WORST hockey and you all see that as a good sign? LOL I guess....

oh and.....

And what if it doesn't? And what if this or what if that? You feel good about your team that played some of their 'worst' hockey in the playoffs already? Keep telling yourself that. We'll see what happens tomorrow. Don't come in here tomorrow saying they played some more of their 'worst' hockey or making some other lame excuses.
