#2038065 Wings release Aaron Downey

Posted by Konnan511 on 29 September 2010 - 05:04 PM

Welcome to another year of cheapshots on Franzen, Datsyuk, and Zetterberg. The Brooks Orpik hit is only the beginning of what we're gonna see.

We had an enforcer in our line-up that game.

Downey really did a good job of preventing Brook Orpik from taking liberties that night, didn't he?

Maybe kenny doesn't see what we do, that some teams take liberties on the wings when not carrying a respectable enforcer, brad may of last season didnt really count and now we don't have anyone, as BBTBB said, expect more of the orpik-kneeing-franzen stuff...teams can do whatever they want because they know no one will beat them up.


Last time I checked the issues the Wings had last year were with the amount of injuries they had (non-cheapshot related) which hurt their performance on the ice, not the amount of liberties teams were taking with the Wings.

Talk about an overstated issue.

Good we don't need a useless plug on the 4th line.

There is no room for a one dimensional enforcer in today's game, especially on the Red Wings.

Our powerplay is our enforcer.

That last one is so true.

I'd like Ozzie to be starter this year. This is actually something I would like :ph34r:

Downey has no place trying out for a roster spot let alone possibly ending up with one!


#2035819 "Major" NHL announcement today

Posted by Howard He Do It?! on 23 September 2010 - 10:04 AM

In surprising fashion, Gary Bettman and the NHL will announce today that the Pittsburgh Penguins will be the Stanley Cup Champions for the 2010-2011 season.


#2035312 Am I the only one that respects Gary Bettman?

The NHL is now a game that's won and lost by the power play. Penalties so absurd you would have to lower the intensity of your game and play like a girl to avoid.

He's done a good job you say? Give me a break. A team can dominate for 2 periods and come the 3rd get charged with ridicules penalties and lose the game. Whats the matter with you guys...

I'm out. Don't feel like listening to the endless Ozzie bashing that is sure to come, despite the fact that our D is obviously s*** again with McCrimmon behind the bench.

Let me get this straight... Wings have an "enforcer" and Franzen gets a cheap shot. Well, good thing Red Wings have an "enforcer". What af****** waste of roster space!

#2034069 Ken Hitchcock coming to Camp

Babcock and Hitchcock coaching the same team... hahahah no comment. But on a serious note, if we got Hitch as an assistant that'd be huge. (Hahaha the puns just keep on coming)
