#2276263 Tomas Holmstrom's fate

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 31 March 2012 - 10:44 PM

I think polls like that are terrible. It's one thing to sit here and discuss it amongst ourselves, but to have a public poll asking if someone else should be forced out is insensitive.

I realize he's a hockey player and he takes as much abuse as anyone in the rink, and then some, but the subject of outliving your usefulness is a touchy one. It is a call that should be decided between him, his team, his family, and the management, and then brought to the fans.

Let him go out publicly with the honour and dignity he has earned, not with faceless people slamming the door behind him from their keyboards.

I realize a lot of people who took part in that poll are too young to have faced the point in their life when they have to face up to the fact that they are no longer capable of carrying their weight, but trust me on this one, it is a huge blow to one's pride.


I agree, this thread is stupid.

#2275490 Babcock is making a huge mistake

What pisses me off the most is that all those Wings fans that came to see them were given a raw deal. For crying out loud, they deserved a much better show than what the Wings gave them. These overpaid players obviously don't give a crap about the fans that come watch them. :ranting:

I think they should throw Hunwick in, the hell with York. I love Shawn Hunwick and really hope he gets a chance to play tonight. JC Petite? lol

#2272543 Brendan Smith watch thread

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 21 March 2012 - 05:50 PM

I agree.

Maturation takes time. I would rather Smith get through these growing pains in the minors than in the NHL. Case in point, the two turnovers in the defensive zone that resulted in goals a few games back. People here on LGW and other forums I have read gave him a lot of flak. You can bet Smith was giving himself a lot of flak for those plays. That is how you learn in hockey though. Lids was never the perfect human at the start of his career.

At the same time though, if he has an opportunity to learn from Lids next year, I say he should be brought up. I just don't like him playing 3rd line minutes when he can get top line minutes in the AHL.


I disagree, this is the time he should be up. You have no idea if Lidstrom is returning. This time I don't feel a player should rot in the AHL.

Love the video, don't like the narrator.


#2272287 reunite the HZD line?

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 20 March 2012 - 07:50 PM

Homer is the most useless player in the NHL. If you're going to reunite Dats and Z, put Nyquist on the line. Don't anchor it down with a guy that can't keep up and that can't even deflect the puck in front of the net anymore. Homer needs to hang em up and i hope he spends all of the playoffs in the press box. if not Nyquist, then put bert or Abdelkader on the line.

One last time so it sinks in, Homer sucks.

the Wings can have a press box line of Homer, Cleary and Franzenfloat


This is what I think of this post :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown: :thumbdown:

All of this Homer hate in here is just pathetic. You are all sad people.


I couldn't agree more. :clap:
