#2627377 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by F.Michael on 25 September 2015 - 10:54 AM


Thanks for clearing that up.

No problem.


I believe the mother felt that her daughter's shirt was to be placed into that bag that the RN had provided...The Hamburg police protocol is not to use that 'hospital' bag that was provided - instead a proper 'evidence' bag was used to place the shirt in, and again - the mother kept the bag, and then went to her daughter's lawyer with it (keep in mind the mother had that bag since early August).


Clear as mud?

Has there been any explanation about what the mother was trying to gain by claiming she found the bag? 

None that I am aware of.


Me thinks the mother was attempting to 'help' her daughter...Not sure what was going on in her head, but then again I'm not involved in a case where my child was possibly sexually assaulted so I could only imagine what 'mom' went thru these past several weeks.

Eouanno, the accuser lawyer provided the brown paper bag to the mother.. that seems sketchy. He could be in trouble for that.

The media is now blaming the DA for the media circus going on? lol what a joke.


The DA is on point! Has all his facts in order.

My understanding is that the mother was given the 'hospital' bag by the RN who gathered the evidence for the rape kit.


Hamburg PD went to the mother's house; there the police collected the shirt that the accuser had worn when the alleged crime took place, and placed said shirt in a police evidence bag, and the mother kept the 'hospital' bag that happened to have the accuser's name, the RN's name, and the address (not sure if it's the accuser's, or mother's address).


This bag then ends up at Eouanno's office when the mother claims she found it at her home between her storm door/front door.


It's more or less a hoax.

I'd argue that hockey players - and all people - who DON'T drink too much are the ones with brain damage.

I'd argue that if you consume your single malt scotch. or bourbon mixed with soda, or even an excessive amount of ice/water - sumthin just isn't right with you :crazy:

#2625760 Islanders Unveil New Alternate Jersey

Posted by F.Michael on 17 September 2015 - 01:31 PM


The killer whale Canuck was actually worse than the stick logo, simply because the current colors are better.  However, Vancouver should have kept the Halloween colors from the early 90's.  Those were awesome.  The Flying V was interesting too, but was too corny to last.  


Here's a question.  Since they want to associate with Brooklyn, why still have "NY" written on the jersey?  They're trying to keep the worst of both worlds here.  Nets colors but keep the NY lettering.  



Yous got a problem wit Brooklyn? bb.jpg

#2625551 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Who was that one offensive defenseman who kept the puck out of his own zone by essentially being another foward on the ice?  You know, the one who was always jumping into the play and carrying the puck deep into the o-zone.  I can't remember his name, but I swear he was pretty good.  I mean, obviously not as good as a stay at home guy...of course.  



Using arguably the best defenseman who also happened to be a pioneer in carrying the puck up ice in an era when Dmen sat back, and watched their own end of the ice  as an argument that we need a '4th forward' might not look so good when there's numerous 2 on 1 going the wrong way.


Paul Coffey was also 1 of those '4th forwards', and his last few seasons in the league were less than stellar.


Lets not kid ourselves here...It's not like we're gonna possess the puck the entire game, and score 5 plus goals against our opponents each, and every night.


Green isn't a Norris Trophy calibre Dman - at least not anymore...If he thinks he can do whatever he wants, and disregard his responsibilities in his own end  - well - expect alot of unhappy campers here at LGW.


EDIT - I for one miss 'run & gun' NHL hockey that we had seen pre 1995, and wouldn't mind seeing it return...Just that we might be 1 of those teams that'll be on the losing end more often than not if Blashill allows this team to play this brand of hockey. 

#2625108 Cleary re-signs... 1 year deal

Posted by F.Michael on 10 September 2015 - 10:35 AM

I can;t believe all the hatred for Cleary. All he wants to do is play! He is being told by his family "please daddy please daddy play" and from the team "please 1 more year" and all I see is haters hating on Cleary. Man I can;t believe some of you. You just aren't true fans if you hate Cleary and don't want him on the team. I just can't believe it.

Me sarcasm meter is going into the 'red zone'...:lol:

#2624956 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by F.Michael on 08 September 2015 - 05:53 PM

I would think a settlement is likely.  If he's not guilty, she's going to take the settlement and run.  If he's guilty, she may well rather end it with something than face a jury and have to recount the most horrific thing that's ever happened to her, knowing that in such a high-profile case people will be glued to every word.


If I were in her shoes (assuming he's guilty), I'd take the money.  Justice would not be served, but if you find yourself in that situation, sometimes your own peace comes before the greater good.  At least he's been exposed and other women will be warned.

Well said.

Datsyuk's work ethic trumps Fedorov's sense of entitlement for me any day.

Must agree here.


Don't get me wrong - I'm a big fan of Feds - however it was known that he had his moments of sulking, and it affected his play, and eventually his time with the Red Wings organization.


Dats works hard each, and every night.

I may be in the minority, but I actually think the recent rebuilding years 2003-2006 and 2011-Present, are far more interesting than the contending years.  There's more to think about, talk about, speculate about, and (quite frankly) ***** about.  Watching your team win the Cup is awesome, but I don't want to see it every year.  Or even be a real possibility every year.  Sometimes you have to struggle a little bit in order to work through it and know what optimism feels like. 


IMO being a fan of a super team is lazy.  And boring.  Which isn't to say that I want our team to be the Chicago Cubs of hockey.  But I don't want us to be the Yankees either.  If you choices each season are A) compete for the championship, or B) be disappointed, then you're missing out on a ton of awesome fan experiences. 

Being a fan from 1984 - that was 13 seasons (and 1995 Final) of frustration, and near misses for me until Detroit won the Cup in '97.

I like Mike Vernon's 1st mask with the Wings the best...Simple, and classy.



#2624422 So this is why teams hate the wings

Posted by F.Michael on 02 September 2015 - 12:02 PM

I became a fan in 1984, and I cherish each, and every season of Detroit Red Wing hockey.


IMHO - nuthin beats the early 90's thru mid 2000 when Detroit was one of the top teams in the league year after year.


Yeah - some will point to Ilitch's bank account, and his willingness to spend on UFA's, but a significant portion of our rosters back then were made up of smart drafting, savvy trades, and of course some luck.


Those years we had a little of everything; talent, grit/toughness, coaching, and above all the leadership of Steve Yzerman.

Got it.  Then I've got two years to go to my first (and last) game at the Joe Louis Arena. 

Maybe this might be a good opportunity for members here at LGW for a 'meet & greet'.


Tickets aren't too tough to get (unless of course it's a game against Toronto), and we could all meet up at a 'watering hole' near the Joe.


I'll buy 1st round.

#2624201 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by F.Michael on 30 August 2015 - 08:37 PM

Wouldn't be surprised if he had 60+ pts this season

He'll certainly get more than his share of ice time on the pp.


I'm hoping he can stay healthy, and be productive like he was with the Caps a few seasons ago.

#2624142 Free agents this off season

Posted by F.Michael on 30 August 2015 - 12:16 AM

This is more about next year... Am I the only who thinks Stamkos is heading to Toronto next year? I mean I think it's a 50/50 chance the other fifty going towards Tampa signing him for atleast ten mil I feel like if he stays in Tampa he's going to be the highest paid player in the league probably making a small amount more than Kane and Toews

I doubt it since Shanahan & Co are all about a total 'rebuild'.
