#1999001 The Curse of Marian Hossa

Posted by Hossa4Life on 13 June 2010 - 02:11 PM

Cry me a river. This guy's got more excuses than a politician in Washington. Posted Image

Who's not banged up in the SCF? I don't hear other guys complaining about it - they still do their job - bruises, bone chips and all.

I just don't get why Wings fans still defend this guy. We are minus one Cup alot to do with him. Glad he's not on our team - good riddance.

You cry me a river and learn hockey. He isnt making excuses, all players who play their hardest end up injured by the end of playoffs. No one is making excuses injures are legit. So stop searching for reasons to hate hossa even though he owned your ass and the rest of the league by winning the cup.

You guys are right, it's just another excuse. I mean what kind of guy plays more hockey than anyone in the league the last 3 years and then has the nerve to suffer the effects of it. I mean what a pansy. With what he's being paid he has no right to be hurt. He should be smart enough to use that money to buy time off or something so he's not getting hurt all the time.

#1998908 Did the Hawks get a little lucky?

The League isn't very happy after hearing that all the goal judges from the SCF have filed workers' compensation claims due to CTS.

If they had played a team with a good goaltender in the finals, they would have lost. Niemi gave up 22 goals in 6 games (3.67 GAA) but he was better than Leighton/Boucher who gave up 25 (4.17 GAA).

This was the worst goaltending I can remember ever seeing in a finals.

Niemi finished with a .910 save percntage but in the finals he had an .877 save percentage. Yes .877 This must be a record but they still won because they scored over 4 goals/game.

Lucky? Yes.

And the point is proven that you can pretty much spin any argument the way you want to to justify a team being lucky or whatever.

For any bitter Penguins fan in 2008, I can guarantee you they probably have a laundry list of why the Wings were lucky to win it all of at least 100 items, whether they are legitimate or not.

It's a stupid ridiculous argument.

Every team is going to get lucky every now and again to win a championship, in any sport. Happens in every league. Good teams both get lucky sometimes and make their own breaks from luck.

Like these championships are tainted or aren't good enough because a team wasn't "fully good" or whatever. Give me a fricken break.

The players on the team should get a bonus that doesn't reflect on the cap at all.

Must be a republican who thought of this idea.

#1998648 How much better would we be looking with Leino and Kopecky

Posted by ComradeWasabi on 12 June 2010 - 02:10 PM

As has been already stated and as will probably be stated to you plenty in future posts...Leino played himself out of here with lack of production, etc., whether it was "fair" or not. Kopecky probably would still have a hard time getting top-line minutes still. More power to them for doing better elsewhere but they still probably wouldn't get much time here.

On a side note, it's another blueadams line combo thread, so do the following below...




I'm really proud that I started the blueadams line combo drinking game. :hehe:

Hindsight is 20/20, my friend. Besides, Kopecky still sucks and Leino played himself out of Detroit and his attitude didn't help either. I think we'll all soon forget about the Leino trade once Hudler is back. I have a feeling that he's going to surprise a lot of naysayers.

he sure would look better as a defensive coach than Brad McCrimmon

I don't think Cheli is going to be one of those ex-players who wonders if he retired too early :D

I must break you

-Andreas Lilja-

lilja says he browses LGW. When I got a chance to chat a little with him I asked if he ever gets time to read the forums such as LGW and he said that he actually does visit.

Post, I am sure never. But I think players browse, wouldn't you?

I may have understated my involvement with LGW when I talked to you that day.

There are times when I think it would be cool if some of the Wings read this board......then there's other times when I'm glad they don't. I mean, half of them would hang themselves if they read what some people here have to say about them. Just sad.
