#2234178 Kronwall and Stuart may be hitting a lot less now

Why is this topic pinned? Its pure conjecture on the OP's end.

#2232520 Miller Ran again

Posted by Shaman on 04 December 2011 - 12:41 PM

If he had the puck and didn't leave his feet, thats a hockey play. He didn't have the puck, and he supermaned into him. That is intent to injure in my mind and Tootoo needs a suspension.

I have no idea why i got negged, it seems that people may not like the idea of driving the net with the puck as being a hockey play.

#2230396 Bylsma Defends Crosby's Elbow on Foligno

Posted by Shaman on 27 November 2011 - 01:00 PM

I am less impressed with the fact he starts something than his teammates come to finish it.... That little shot to the head was a ***** move, but not particularly dangerous. Now I can see why some people would make this a big deal as he did go on a 50000 city tour opening for Charlie Sheen with the whole 'head shots aren't a part of the game'. I do believe if hes going to take the moral high ground and not put himself in position for someone to take a run at him hes going to have to start walking what he talks.

#2227909 Crosby coming back

Some turds just won't flush. But good to see that he's ok and that he didn't lose his career.

#2218186 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by Shaman on 25 October 2011 - 11:48 AM

haha one of these people who thinks they are the center of the universe, and ps, my comment went far above your head

Exactly! How can anyone not find LOLCats funny?!

So lets all agree on these things:

1. Pronger is a ******.

2. No one wants him to have a life altering injury...

3. ...unless it happens in some ironic way. (knee injury tripping over a stolen puck or something like that)

4. LOLcats are funny

Hate him for what he does on ice, but, one should never wish a scarring injury on someone, and if this was to his eye it could be bad. I hope hes ok.

#2213816 Eric Nystrom on waivers

Posted by Shaman on 09 October 2011 - 07:05 PM

Brunnstrom had a decent training camp and now when you need to tie a game youre putting Brunnstrom out there?

Do you guys not realize that Brunnstrom wasnt even that guy in the AHL last season?

And once again Brunnstrom had 10 les pims in less games played than Nystrom last year, while 10 of Nystroms came in fights and I can guarantee a few were off setting roughings. Using stats and not bias against a player will show you that Brunnstrom actually takes more dumb penalties

The Wings have also been worn down physically in the playoffs by the sharks and Coyotes the last 2 seasons. Noone will like to acknowledge that because it makes their argument against a physical player sound better. Maybe if the wings could wear down another team for once they would do better in the playoffs

When has anyone suggested signing someone who cant play but can fight?

Youre the worst on this board for putting words in other peoples mouths, as soon as its a 4th liner who can drop the gloves hes automatically only a fighter and useless in every other aspect according to you.

Maybe try watching the guys play for once and youll realize they do just as much as someone like Drew Miller

That might be true, but, game 7 Nystrom wouldn't have scored the GWG. Brunnstrom had a bad year last year, but, he has talent. His attitude was always his issue not his skill level.

I think its a good idea because Brunnstrom had a good training camp but isn't some god like player that fills any real needs at this point in time. Nyquist had a better training camp and he got sent down.

He had a good training camp sure, but does that mean he shouldnt have to put in a little AHL time.. Ville Leino did and Brunnstrom doesnt exactyl have a great track record of producing so why is it that he should have a guaranteed NHL roster spot when another person could be picked up who fills more of a need on the team?

I think youre overvaluing Brunnstrom, maybe not Nystrom but a player of his ilk that can play and scrap ont eh 4th line would be much better for this team than Brunnstrom

How does Nystrom help Detroit beat San Jose in the 2nd round? The Wings lost because of poorly timed penalty and no clutch scoring. If I want to put one of those two on the ice when I need to break a tie, or tie a game, Brunnstrom is the only choice. If I want to put a player in who won't cost the team a lead by taking a stupid penalty, again Brunnstrom wins.

Hudler looks good so far.

#2212765 Eric Nystrom on waivers

Posted by Shaman on 06 October 2011 - 11:28 PM

With Mursak down I would waive Brunnstrom for him to be honest.

We dont need a guy like Brunnstrom really and we could really use a guy like Nystrom. A guy who can enforce and play, its too bad we neded up locking these many guys up because he would be the perfect fit here.

The physicality he brings is worth the 3 less assists he gets than Miller while Miller is playing with better teams.

You play Nystrom with Eaves and Helm and he easily produces like Miller does

There is a reason why the Wild waived him, if he can't fit in on the Wild's roster, which is not deep by anyone's definition, why would it be different for the Wings? Brunnstrom showed heart and hard play and earned a contract, Nystrom got bounced from a team expected to contend for a lottery pick. Gotta get the enforcer glasses off, he just doesn't fit in the depth chart anywhere. Sorry.

Gordie Howe Arena... Please.

#2206234 Red Wings Top 20, Fall Edition

Posted by Shaman on 05 September 2011 - 10:04 AM

Why did Pulu get downgraded rank wise after a killer season in Finland? The ranks and lists are s***, I hate to be so blunt, but I won't sugar coat it, Marshall and Ferraro top ten? Alqvist not? Pulu going from 8 to 7.5 and both being D? I could see that one if he was a 7.5B, but he blew everyone's expectations out of the water last season, and is having a strong preseason this year.

#2203334 Bold predictions for the year!

Posted by Shaman on 11 August 2011 - 03:57 PM

Datsyuk and Zetterberg will team together and cure cancer

Everyone here knows the cure for cancer is Z's beard hair mixed with some of Dat's stick tape, applied liberally to the area. This also is an ancient Chinese cure for impotence.

Bold predictions:
Hudler scores 52 pts all from 3rd line minutes (plus a couple from his time in the box served for bench minors).
Filpulla (and 1st and 4th) is traded at the deadline for Praise, Z and D for C goes catatonic.
Zetterberg scores 40 goals again, and nears 100 points.
Dats scores 99 again, justifies this by setting assists records in the playoffs. Tells the media 'I take regular season off, stay rested for cup' then looks at Z awkwardly making sure he said it right.
Lidstrom puts up 50+ points, is +20 and wins another Norris.

#2201350 Mike Commodore: Wear Red Wings Jersey #64

Posted by Shaman on 27 July 2011 - 09:02 PM

Let's hope he's not as useless as our last #22.

Lebda is great... hes going to singlehandly make Weber and Suter look a lot better defensively, raising their price tags and giving Detroit a better chance to sign them.
