#1994825 Bertuzzi states he will either stay with wings or retire

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 June 2010 - 12:10 PM

Thats ok, I get negged by someone who has an issues with me just because I dislike Hudler. I think its hilarious.


I get negged for hating the Blackhawks. :hehe:

Seriously, though, for that price Bertuzzi would be awesome to have back in Detroit. I hope he and Franzen can continue to play together and develop some kind of chemistry.

It is odd to see a thread with that title on a Wings forum. Unfortunately, there are those who feel that they can tell the rest of us who we can or can't root for, and how our choice determines the depth of our love for the Wings.

Sorry for any bad thoughts I sent your way. Since you're not one of those, I'll go back and give you a +. Pax?


Thanks for understanding. No, I am not one of those who tells anyone who they can and can't root for. I just chose to root for the Wings, and don't really have an opinion otherwise. I love the game, it just doesn't make me go yay when it's not the Wings lifting that shiny trophy. I guess I was a little vague in my post, whereas my intention was misconstrued. My intention wasn't to say "You can't root for any team other than the Wings", but being a smart ass and saying "Geez..... How could you want any other team to win, makes me sick" :P Oh well.

Fans of any team can post in this forum if they abide by the rules and don't troll. I certainly welcome them.

And what are we supposed to do now that there are only 2 teams left and the Wings are out?

And while I know a good bit of it is in fun, some in here definitely go overboard with the bulls**t of real vs. fake fans given by your own personal lists of criteria which are bulls**t. Just because you make the rules of being a fan doesn't make them true. (generally speaking here, not focusing on anybody in specific)

I want to see the Blackhawks win now. Why? The Wings are out, I have some family that live in Chicago and it'd be cool for them to experience, I have a friend who lives down here who is a Hawks fan from Chicago, and I personally don't like Philly sports all that much. If you don't like it, that's your tough luck. Who I want to win or root for does not make me any better or worse of a fan than anybody else in here.

So you can take your "You're not a real Red Wing fan" if you root for the Blackhawks or a team that Pronger plays on or whatever thought process and shove it up your rear end.


I can't help but feel like you're attacking me there. Sorry that I only like to see the Wings win the Stanley Cup, and really don't care who wins otherwise (not that I don't like watching it, I just don't have an opinion one way or another). Sorry to offend you so badly. I guess I can't make a comment saying that a thread like "please chicago win the stanley cup" is best reserved for a Hawks forum (being a rival fan, making a rival comment). I guess poking a little fun at you guys that want Philly or the Hawks to win is also a bad thing (like by saying it makes me sick). Some of you fellas on here need to lighten up a little bit.

Bulls***. They are marketing him because he is Canadian. Datsyuk has 4 straight Lady Bings, 2 straint Selke Trophys and 2 stanley cups. But he's not Canadian. Lidstrom has SIX Norris Trophies, FOUR Stanley Cups an Olympic Gold Medal (he scored the winning goal) and a frickin Conn Smyth. But he's not Canadian. Do I need to continue...

I need to remind Ovechkin, Chara, and other non-Canadians that are constantly marketed that they are, in fact, Canadian after all.

Agreed, but they are further away and in another conference.

It's between two very evil teams, I just cannot cheer for another Western Conference team, not to mention another Central division team.



This, this, and more of this. Chicago is that little brother thing some guy was saying earlier. But their fans are the annoying ass uncle who married into the family that NO ONE likes.

Christ do I miss Dom, if we still had his competitive spirit on this team we would have done much better in the playoffs. The man is the best goalie of the modern era hands down, and he just keeps playing; and winning to boot.

Come back to us Dom!

Exactly.

Hopefully this signing will drive some of the talent back to the NHL since no one in the KHL is going to want to face the Dominator :sly:

He might not need the money, although I would suggest that he cash those cheques as soon as possible. He's still playing because he obviously loves the game. Besides, he's only six in dog years.

Hasek is no doubt the best goalie of the modern era.

He played hockey for Sparta, and now he's playing hockey for Spartak.

How fitting. :D

Amazing Crosby had the most stick "whacking" penalties in the league this year...

Pot, meet Kettle.

I've got a news flash: The Wings will not win the Cup this year. Someone else will win it.

Since the Wings are no longer in the playoffs, it is not a matter of being a traitor to root for another team.

If the Wings were still in it and someone said, "Oh, what the heck, orange is just so darn festive. I'll go root for Philly." then I would call that person a traitor.

As it is, we are now picking through the leftovers. The buffet is empty except for some crusty tuna salad and some wilted lettuce. I'm going for the tuna salad. Just because you don't trust old tuna is no reason to say that your saggy leaf is superior.

We can pull for whomever we want at this point in the season.

I have my reasons; you have yours. See my sig.

Go Hawks.



Hey, I haven't cussed anyone out in this thread. I just questioned the sanity of some posters who root for the Hawks. That's not against forum rules last I checked.

Don't know how you can call me a kettle for responding to that poster.

Good to see I still have so many haters on this forum. I was beginning to get a little worried there.

I could not possibly agree more. I am a hockey fan first and a Wings fan second... diehard on both accounts. I love the way Toews, Hossa and Keith play the game, have many friends from the Chicago area who are longtime Hawks fans and generally root for the West over the East since that is my team's conference.

Of course I'd be rocking the winged wheel and cheering my heart out for the Wings if they were still playing, but they're not. I still enjoy watching hockey, so the team I'm choosing to back until the offseason is the Hawks (nevermind that, once the Wings got bounced I was praying for a Sharks/Habs final....grumble).

This makes me less of a fan? That's plain silly.
