The only "menacing presence" left in Chicago now is Oprah.

I just know that if he were to punch you in the face, you'd have to fight off the urge to thank him.

He is the most interesting man in the world

I'll take a Mike Modano over a gritty forward today. No cup since, when was it? '99? He has to be hungry. And where better to win another than his home state?

Hell yes - let's offer 1 year contract to Gordie Howe - no cup since '55 - he has to be hungry...

Do you guys think the Wings are Boogard's 1.65 4 year team??

Holy christ I hope not. I was crossing my fingers for 5 or 6 hundred per year. But 1.65 mil per year? This has to be one of the most overpaying free agencies I've ever seen.

We can't let Lils leave. He plays too big of a role on this team. Kenny needs to sweeten the pot.

No, he's not what you want. He's still capable of being a .5 ppg player and would fit perfectly on the third line.

No. He's not what DETROIT needs. We already have scorers and plenty of them. Players who put up points is not what we are lacking.

I REALLY REALLY hope the Wings sign Modano. He's a perfect fit here.

Good God no. Why is he a fit? He's old. He's soft. Not what we need. At all.

#2007638 Parents sue because kids suck at hockey

Posted by Opie on 01 July 2010 - 08:56 AM

Really, really, your kid gets cut and you call a lawyer, this is a direct result of the "Everyone gets a trophy" society we live in now.

Guess what folks, the world is not fair, ask the millions of people without jobs, and the ones who can't get jobs because employers are seeking "People Currently Employed"

Friggin' stupid parents, teach your kid to buck up and deal with it, eventually he will need to learn that lesson, and when he does, oh boy will it hurt.

They hurt poor Daniel's dignity, boo friggin' hoo

They were talking about this on the radio this morning... this is just sickening and I hope the judge not only throws this out, but fines the parents for wasting the courts time and makes an example out of them - THIS IS WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE WORLD

If you don't make a team, use it as motivation, train harder, practice longer and make the team next time... nothing in life should be handed to you, it should be EARNED.

One of the most famous stories in sports is how at age 14/15 Micheal Jordan got cut from his high school basketball team, he used it to become the best of his era, and if I compared generations maybe the best of all time!

Wow. 1998, 2008, and 2009 is getting hot for a few rounds?

Unfair to bring up 98 and 08... he only started watching hockey in 09.

Yeah, because 75% of the 8,000+ members on this board registered within the last year or so.

Wait, that's your board.

Not sure why you think I take bandwagon fans as an insult. I don't care. I'm not one, so why would I? I don't even live in Chicago, so I don't have to deal with them. In fact, I'm on your side with that argument. I hate bandwagon fans as much as you.

Blackhawk nation still in denial.

About what? I'd love to hear this.

There's a great chance that this is all we lose this offseason, which is WAY less than (legit) fans thought just a few weeks ago.

Really, what are we in denial about? I'm interested.

Seems like WIngs fan are grasping for straws now that the offseason isn't going to be nearly as bad for the Hawks as you thought.
