#2096969 Red Wings Tough Guy?

Posted by Doc Holliday on 14 January 2011 - 10:54 AM

That you dont want the wings to have an enforcer or that they are pretty much useless? Lets give some Downey threads a look and we'll a nice hat getting munched on.


Well good luck with finding a post that says I hate the idea of having an enforcer.

Seriously most of us have been posting here long enough to know how you feel about enforcers, give it a rest. We aren't dumb. Its fine if thats your opinion but when its being talked about you dont have to all of a sudden act like youre being crucified for being against fighters. YOU MAKE POSTS LIKE THAT ALL THE TIME THAT MAKE YOU SEEM ANTI-FIGHTER.

Bring them up, detective.

I dont even want a goon on this team like some on here but come on man, everyone who can read knows your opinion on this subject

If everyone "knows" then it wouldn't be too hard to find something that proves it.

Or maybe the majority of the "pro-enforcer" crowd seems to misinterpret most people's opinions that do not agree with theirs as "anti-fighter". No, can't be that.

If the Wings won 20 games straight and then lost because a couple of players made bad plays, you'd complain as if those couple were horrible players.


Rafalski has always been a bad defensive player.

I don't need your approval when I post who I don't think is doing well.

And here comes the blame game. This ought to be good.


I think you spend more time talking about other posters than about hockey.

I really did enjoy this forum a lot more before the '08 Cup win. Since then, people have kicked the entitlement complexes into an even higher gear. It makes me feel sorry for the team.


As far as I'm concerned even though you may think you're sincere in your motivation, you come off as a condescending know-it-all. You.will.not.ever.be.able.to.fix.anybody.here.but.yourself.

And I think you and many others here are immensely spoiled. It makes me sad that the team's consistent success over the last 15 years has bred in the fans feelings of entitlement rather than ones of gratitude.

:lol:

What exactly do you base this bold comment on?

No, we are fans.

Sorry we don't live up to your standards of fandom.

I feel bad for MacDonald, 2 games, 2 losses that weren't even close to his fault.


Good for Howard, he can let in 3 or 4 softies and know that his team can score enough to at least give the other guy the loss.

Because we're not blind homers like you?

We need more Mindfly, and less Crymson.

It is not at all a blessing when we have pretty much no one to lean on if Joey goes down. And really he has been nothing but a career backup and hasn't shown much. I am all for a good story for this season too like a Joey Mac coming out of the depths and playing some stellar goalie but to think that losing Jimmy (with Ozzie shelved til like March) is just nuts.


We'll worry about that when Joey goes down. Until then, he's been better than fine and while he'll no doubt show signs of his "career backup" status soon enough, all he has to do is not implode and we'll be fine down the stretch. Again, it's not like Howard's giving us any help at all these days. I truly believe time off could very well give him the mental break he needs to get his game back together, and we need that far more down the stretch than anything. Who cares if he comes back now and continues to struggle? What good is that for us?


#2096879 San Jose Sharks

Posted by Howard He Do It?! on 14 January 2011 - 01:53 AM

I'd be happy to see the Sharks have a terrible season. After watching how much he allowed (or encouraged) his players to dive last playoff year, I'd also be perfectly content to see McLellan fail and get fired in the future.

And then come back to coach the Wings' defense. :hehe:

#2095891 Bertuzzi SUCKS

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 11 January 2011 - 01:49 PM

We're not arguing who has had the better career, obviously Bert in his prime was better than Flip will ever be. I'm talking about who is playing better right now. Bertuzzi has been playing like s*** lately. He floats, doesn't battle and loses the puck constantly. This has nothing to do with Filppula.

Neither was I. My point is that Bert is playing equally well if not better than Filppula who should be playing far better given the salary he was awarded for his potential and at the same time given the fact that he's in the prime of his career where as Bert's is winding down.

I don't understand how this point has been missed.


#2095807 2011 All-Star Rosters Game rosters named

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 January 2011 - 12:16 PM

Who are the Captains going to be?

Also: No Zetterberg or Howard!?!? That's embarrassing.


If Howard makes the ASG, then I'll stop watching hockey. He doesn't even remotely deserve to be in this game.

As for Zetterberg, he should have made it, but his destiny is to not play in this game. Hasn't he been named to several All Star Games, but had to sit out due to injury?


#2095645 1/10 GDT: Red Wings 4 at Avalanche 5

Posted by VM1138 on 11 January 2011 - 12:07 AM

MacDonald for starter. (Am I joking? Sarcastic? You be the judge) Sorry, I try not to get angry with players and give up on them, but Jimmy "Four Goals" Howard just isn't cutting it.

Bizarre game. The Wings seemed to play really well and forced the play when they needed to, but it seemed every time they tried to clear the puck or make a short pass it hit a stick, stopped in mid-air, or otherwise dropped to the ice after three feet to lie there and wait for a Colorado player to grab it. And it was like the Wings had never handled a puck before, getting it stuck between their skates, missing the puck completely on simple passes....yet they were otherwise passing crisply, quickly, and accurately.

Strange, strange game. Can't say I'm too disappointed, since that sort of strangeness isn't common. Only real downside (aside from losing) was Howard's dismal performance...again. Only one of those goals wasn't his fault, which is about par for the course.
