That was a long time ago.  I'm sure now that he's played with real NHL players, he's got over the big-fish-in-the-small-pond syndrome.  Not to say that he may not be a wiener now, just that he's had ample time to change, and if anything can give a d-man a reality check, it's skating with Nick Lidstrom.


Money on the board:  Current total: $6

$1 for a goal by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster.  An additional $5 for a series-clinching goal scored by any current Wing after whom I have named a hamster. $5 if the other team fails to score against a current Wing goalie after whom I have named a hamster.

Hamsters I have had:  (current Wings highlighted)

Henrik Pavel Tomas Nicklas Dominik

Niklas Matthew Daniel Robert

Johan Andreas Valtteri Jonathan

Andrew Patrick Ian Todd

Jordin Damien Gustav James

I find it hard to believe that any team would want a guy who can't produce, plays poorly, and publicly whines when he's scratched.

I didn't find Ian White coming off as a whiner when he was scratched. I don't want players who are okay with sitting. But it may be an "unwritten rule" not to talk to the press about it.   He was horrid in the beginning of the season, but he had plenty of company.  I don't think he was bad enough not to get another chance in the lineup, but that's just my opinion. 

 

I hadn't heard any of the "bad team mate" stuff either and I'm not going to condemn a guy over something that happened in juniors.

Ian White will benefit the Wings most if he plays for another NHL team.

Me either. It just snowballs.

He makes comments about being frustrated, and now that he's been out of the lineup a while he's suddenly a whiner and locker room cancer.

Some of his comments at the time regarding being scratched.

 

“It's really frustrating,'' White said. “I've played almost 500 games at this level and I've played the same way, so suddenly I guess it's not working.''

He added, “I am taken aback. I didn't see this coming. I feel like I'm playing the same way I played the last seven years. I work as hard as I can every night. Maybe I don't have the stats this year I've had in the past, but I feel I'm working hard and playing the same way I always have.''

 

“I played a couple games and then got set back for two weeks or so with my leg (he missed five games with a laceration to his left leg on Jan. 22), so it took a little longer, but aside from not scoring and getting points I feel I'm playing pretty good. It's funny, some years the shots all go in and the rebounds someone scores on, too, and sometimes it doesn't happen.''

“I just want to play,'' White said. “I'm going to come to the rink every day and be a good teammate and try to make my teammates better.

“I haven't asked for a trade. That's up to management, what personnel they want around and what changes they want to make to the team. So, I just show up and work hard and try to help everyone get better, help this team get wins.''

To me that just sounds like a veteran player being fairly honest about how he feels.  It's not surprising he wants to play, but it's not like he's not trashing anybody.

His wardrobe is full of ill-fitting suits...Where's that pic of him in the background; looks like he got his suit from the Goodwill.

That's nothing.

 

I read stories about Link Gaetz beating the hell out of teammates at practice and aftergame parties.  

Did they steal Link's lunch box?

Yah, I think he's a pro's pro now. But white will be gone next year.
