This thread is full of funny. A bunch of people who probably wouldn't even know what the Chicago Tribune looks like if not for this ridiculousness that shouldn't have been printed, commenting on the quality of a paper that you don't even read, in a city you've never been to or haven't spent a significant amount of time in. What's even funnier is that some of you have said about 10x worse about Pronger and other players, insinuating they're women/feminine and/or ***, totally unaware of the offensiveness of those statements.....all the while using the cop-out that because this is the internet, that somehow makes it better.

The Trib shouldn't have printed that, I'm in agreement with you there. My dad even told me this morning he was surprised they went with it, since the Sun-Times is usually the paper that runs the low-brow stuff. That said, if you think this is indicative of the paper as a whole or the quality of the work they do put out, you're crazy.

Bah, we've been making pics of Pronger like that for years. Just another case of Hawks fans wanting to be like us. :P

Im surprised you even found him. I expected the results of googling "hockey" and "Lebda" to come up something like "does not compute"

What is a conventional Red Wing?

He has bowed legs and trusts his eyes to Dr. Rahmani.

Posted by Lidstromboli on 05 June 2010 - 06:35 PM

What are you doing? You promised me breakfast.

Breakfast, shmreakfast. Look at the score, for Christ's sake. It's only the second period and I'm up 12 to 2. Breakfasts come and go, Rene, but Hartford, "the Whale," they only beat Vancouver once, maybe twice in a lifetime.

They're obviously talking about Steve Lebda....

#1995831 Bertuzzi states he will either stay with wings or retire

The sheer fact we are discussing trading Cleary in this Bert thread just baffles me and LGW never ceases to amaze with the amount of ass hats that sign in here everyday to say this. The man fought through a torn meniscus which everyone condemns him for and some think thats just sheer Cleary warrior stuff. I am of the latter thinking this guy would die for the Wings on the ice. You NEVER get rid of guys that carry this much respect in the locker room and you NEVER forget what this guy has done during both Cup runs. Clears will be back at 100% and for most thats still not enough but for me that gets me pumped. IF Bert will sign for the right price bring him back. If he retires get somebody else then, I am ok either way. But give up the Cleary bashing.... :rolleyes:

#1995991 The Curse of Marian Hossa

Posted by Joseph Franks on 07 June 2010 - 07:05 PM

That's why I love forums.

Guy scores 40 goals in the season, leads the team. We lose game 7 overtime of the Stanley Cup Finals, and people talk s*** :)

Sure, lets blame it all on Hossa :)

He's been to the finals 3 times in a row. No Detroit player can lay claim to that :)

What if we had made it to the finals this year....and lost. Guess we'd have to pick someone else to blame :)

Sure, hes been a poor playoff performer the last few years.

But he's in the finals again, and all of our "playoff performers".....are playing nhl 2010 on their playstations.

#1995954 The Curse of Marian Hossa

Also took a s*** ton less to come here as well fellas. I realize he just bounces to winners that eventually go on to lose the Finals but, we were all singing a different tune when we got him. Especially when he played the way he did throughout the season and I saw crazy mofo's donning his jersey even though we knew it was for 1 and done, and even the way he was going in the Chicago series right before the Finals. I was at game 5 in the WCF and the guy was pretty close to unstoppable. I think we should all just take it easy on the Hossa hate. I am not a slappy here and I loathe Chicago but there is really nothing in here that has made a ton of sense to do one of these :thumbup: if he loses another. The overall consensus to me would make more sense to do one of these :clap: :yowza: Posted Image if Chicago was to lose out on another. The Hossa part would just make an amazing story that's all. No real gratification comes from it.

I picked Summer's Eve. It reminds me of a warm tropical rain.
