Probably lol, there was also logo hunter and shinpad assassin.

 

Of course Sammy isn't AS bad as Williams, who IMO was the worst forward ive seen play for the DRW since the lockout. That said, Sammy was a whole different breed of bad this season. His poor play even translated into GR, where he managed -4 in 2 games.

 

Are you currently dating Mark Mowers by any chance?

I started to actually watch every game in 07 so I've never seen him play

 

Which is what makes it ( IMO )

Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing. The goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Where's the loyalty, Kenny?

 

Holland shows loyalty to players that show loyalty back to him. It sets a good precedent, especially to young players within your organization who at some point need to make a decision to either stay and sign a long term contract, or to jump ship for more money. Obviously it won’t work 100% of the time, but I think it is no coincidence that the Wings very rarely lose star players when they want to retain them.

 

As frustrating as the loyalty can be at times as a fan (ie. Cleary) I believe long term it helps the organization.

 

Obviously you are being sarcastic in your comment, but Samuelsson left after the 2008-2009 season. Holland shouldn’t show him the same loyalty he showed Cleary. Cleary has played here for years, never left, sacrificed his body, and even stayed after being offered a 3 year 9 million deal with the Flyers (I believe). Holland promised Cleary last year that he would sign him for the 2014/15 season, if Holland doesn’t make that signing, he pisses off a lot of players. Not a message I want sent to players like Tatar, Nyquist, Jurco, Mantha, Dekeyser etc.

If Mowers is THAT much worse than Williams, I can only imagine

In a menage a trois with Matt Ellis.

 

After breaking up with Brad Norton.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I love how Sammy doesn't hesitate to speak his mind.   :lol:

 

On what he's looking forward to playing in Sweden:

 

I would particularly like to play hockey and not just dump the puck. Then it happens so clear that it is in (a 2-1 game - fine) but otherwise, I would like to pass the puck and get a fun game.

funny thing is at the end of the video posted the other favorite whipping boy Danny C is standing as Ozzie comes off the ice. So I am guessing both our "favorites" were stars for that game. My how times have changed
