#2518840 Holland Holding on to Jeff Blashill

Posted by The Secret on 02 May 2014 - 08:26 AM


LOL.  I could have won Gold with Canada.    


Whoa, sit back in your arm chair and realize this /\ is a huge load of crap! Look at Dave Lewis... you think he thought he could win a Cup with Scotty's team? and did he? Nope, he failed miserably with basically the same team. Great players don't equal success if you can't get the most out of them or dont use them properly.


If we don't have Babcock behind the bench this season we don't make the playoffs for the 23rd straight year. Babcock isn't going anywhere and rightfully so. Babcock retires a Red Wing!

No, an overabundance of talent did that. 


Not to discount coaching but when the deck is stacked as well as it was.. coaching becomes less important.





Here too... BUll Crap! For the same reasons in my previous post!

#2515729 Bertuzzi in, Jurco out

Posted by The Secret on 25 April 2014 - 08:11 AM

Except for that totally unnecessary penalty that took the Wings off the PP when they could have put a fork in Boston, gave the Bruins a brief PP which they scored on.  It was a game, and likely, series changer.


I remember that looking like a huge bit of embellishment from a player that has a very long list of embellishing things..... I don't think a bump like that should completely corkscrew a 6' 9" behemoth. Nor the previous game when 5' 9" Tatar somehow mustered the strength to throw the same 6' 9" man.

#2515713 Classy move by Tootoo.

Posted by The Secret on 25 April 2014 - 07:16 AM

Thanks for posting this... it made my day!! The reaction of Cap'n little boy will be with me all day... so fun! Atta boy Tootoo, here is hoping that with some of the dead things off of our roster next season there will be a spot for Tootoo and what he brings. I would love LOVE to see Tootoo flatten that sail on Marchands face.... I would react just like Capn's little boy!!!

#2512836 Lucic Spearing DeKeyser

Posted by The Secret on 21 April 2014 - 07:46 AM

I dreamt of having Lucic in Detroit but this kind of thing is not a heat of the moment thing.... it's a low down filthy and dispicable play and NOT something I would be happy seeing our players doing. Why does a big tough kid like Lucic have to resort to swinging his stick at the low hanging fruit of an unsuspecting player? This guy has zero respect for the safety of the players or the game!!! It's a cry baby reaction for Dekeyser cleanly knocking him off the puck 2 seconds before. Sad thing is we have NOONE to put him in his place.... Maybe Johan will remove his cloak of invisibility and rub his vagine on Lucic in retaliation, probably not though.

The kids got a cannon when he leans into it. He's growing, have patience.

#2493992 Patrick Eaves First Game as a Predator

Posted by The Secret on 10 March 2014 - 07:33 AM

Patty was a great role player. I liked him as a Red Wing and hope he does well in Nashville... I'd rather see him get a regular gig somewhere, he deserves to play. Good luck Pat, thanks for the memories... Like this:

God bless the Illitch family!

#2479130 Hypothetical: What Coach Would You Replace Babcock With?

Posted by The Secret on 31 January 2014 - 10:16 AM

Really, Another replace the coach thread?!


Any who, The answer to this question is very easy... a no brainer really. The ONLY person suitable to replace Babcock is ME! No one else anywhere is more suitable. Watch out Babs... once word gets out your a goner! Then you will see me take this very same team to the Stanley Cup parade... and the Super Bowl parade... and what ever parade they are having this year for the Tranna Maple Leafs!!!

#2478697 Tim Thomas is a dope: It's a scientific fact.

Posted by The Secret on 29 January 2014 - 10:25 AM

Still don't see what makes him a dope but regardless the guy is a scrapper and still is a great goalie... I wouldn't mind at all if they did not resign The Monster and did sign Timmy the Tank on a one year. Thomas can still be a #1 goalie and he'd challenge Howard every step of the way. A Howard-Thomas tandem would be wicked! Like Fuhr-Moog or Hasek-Osgood

#2469075 Tailgating?

Posted by The Secret on 31 December 2013 - 09:29 AM

I went once to tailgate and game at a Michigan State game a few years back and the alumn's that were bringing us were upset that we were running late to get there at 8:30 AM.... when we got there just before 9:00 there were tents set up, BBQ's in full use, music going, TV's going, Booze going, Footballs being thrown..... the party was in full gear at 9:00AM... it was insane and soo much fun. Enjoy! Keep us posted in the festivities, you'll get some worthwhile pictures to share.... just ask kindly :) Let them know your an exotic Canadian friend and they will LOVE it (don't mention the Toronto thing though)

#2462715 Darren Helm Injured

Posted by The Secret on 10 December 2013 - 02:35 PM


Well it's not too much of a stretch for me.  I like Franzen, and the blanket criticism he receives is hardly ever warranted.  Does he have bad games sometimes?  Sure.  Is he a bad player?  Nope.  On a team that has struggled offensively for four or five years, a guy who can put up 25-29 goals is a breath of fresh air.


Franzen is far from a breath of fresh air... he gets the flack because he has everything it takes to be a true power forward but lacks the cack n balls to use it half the time. He is on a roll now and playing great but for no rhyme or reason can vanish into thin air at any time. I think there would be less complaining about him if during his goalless droughts he was a great defensive player and making an impact in other ways but he doesn't... add to the fact that Holland stayed loyal and signed up Franzen first before Hossa, when we had Hossa in our grips, and then you see where all the s*** he tales comes from.... its always warranted and always will be while he plays the way he does

#2461303 Darren Helm Injured

Posted by The Secret on 05 December 2013 - 02:49 PM

Helm caught a skate in the shoulder in the 3rd period. This must be from that?! Get better soon Helmer... and Datsyuker... and Zetterberger ....and Dekeyserer.... and Bertuzzier.... and Howarder

#2458459 Looking for advice/attending a Wings home game

Posted by The Secret on 27 November 2013 - 09:56 AM

Have to go for the Lafeyette Coney Island experience after a game.... Its a must! Its like going to Montreal and not going to Schwartz for smoked meat... You just got to do it


"ONE UP!!!!"

#2458099 ****(Stuff) no one says about the Wings

Posted by The Secret on 25 November 2013 - 10:04 AM

I'm happy we signed Franzen instead of Hossa

#2457720 Babcock's system

Posted by The Secret on 24 November 2013 - 04:33 PM

He needs a system where the players listen to him and do whats asked of them. SHOOT THE PUCK! MAKE THE SIMPLE PLAY! A part from Babcock playing in the game and doing it for them there is only so much he can do.


I could see it now, Babcock (in the stupidest managerial move in hockey history) gets let go by Detroit today at noon and at 12:01 the coach of Tampa Bay gets fired and at 12:01:30 Babcock has a coaching job in Tampa working for Yzerman!


You can't have a Stanley Cup winning team every year and we are 22 straight years in the playoff, longest running streak in all of the major pro sports!! Let him do his job, things will straighten out OR invent the electronic remote control device that Babcock can use from the bench to electricute the desired player at the time he needs to shoot rather than pass. It can also be used to punish a player after he has given the puck to the wrong team (which we should also blame on Babcock I suppose), taken a stupid penalty, gotten hurt for an extended period of time, etc.
