#2376685 Larry Murphy Fired by FSD

Posted by F.Michael on 31 March 2013 - 02:17 AM

you have realize that all you redmond/murphy lovers are super homer fans. I mean you all frequent red wings message boards. I honestly could care less about their stupid 'back in my day' stories, the rediculous homerisms. The lack of objectivism, both LOVE fighting, the hatred of all penalties that meant to protect players (even when 10% of the NHL is injured). It'd be nice to have someone on the telecast with an opposite opinion, a little bit of devils advocate.

 

I never disliked either of them, but they are both not great broadcasters. FSD probably thought it would be better to keep one rambling former player, and then try to get someone more professional, someone with opposing opinions. Clearly redmond is the better of two.

 

I watch a lot of tsn, sportsnet and CBC. And all those telecasts blow what FSD throws out there.

So you think CBC/TSN/Sportsnet is better than FSD - that's just fine.

 

I watch FSD because I am a Detroit Red Wing homer, and proud of it.

I say we pool our $$$ together, and send Sid a gift basket of caramel apples.




#2374616 Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

Posted by F.Michael on 27 March 2013 - 12:18 PM

I dont see how that could ever work.

 

 

Iginla is one of the best players to ever wear the flamed C on their chest, so I am sure they would welcome him back. Anyway, Wings aren't on his list so maybe time to close this thread now?

Din758 take a look at Grimey's post...Pretty much sums it all up.

Him and redmond both suck, itd be nice to have a smart hockey person in the both

:g:



Are you that one person in the world that doesn't like Mickey Redmond? Is your hell a cold, lonely one?

:clap:




#2374284 I hate to admit this but....

Posted by F.Michael on 26 March 2013 - 10:00 AM

Ticked because they get an AHL caliber defenseman and we dont?

Agreed.

 

Right now this guy's a stud at the NCAA level...Last time I checked the NHL is light years away in terms of talent/maturity.




#2373817 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Posted by F.Michael on 25 March 2013 - 04:54 PM

Doubt it. He's not an 18 year old kid, he's 23.

Problem is...He's 23, and used to playing against NCAA competition.

 

The quality of competition is just a tad higher than what he's used to...Honestly - he could struggle against AHL calibre players.




#2373783 Most Popular NHL Teams in Sweden

Posted by F.Michael on 25 March 2013 - 03:34 PM

Back in the 90's, and up until the early 2000's the Wings were popular with Russian folks courtesy of our "Russian 5"...

 

These past several years it's been our Swedes...

 

I can't wait for our "Canadian" movement to begin; scoring goals, and punching faces!!!




#2373547 Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

Posted by F.Michael on 24 March 2013 - 11:44 PM

I don't want an expensive rental.  I'll take a cheaper rental, but not one that's likely not going to say with your team and who will cost a boat load.  If we're in the market for an expensive star winger I'd chase Gaborik before Iginla.  At least he's under contract for another year.

 

Also, Iginla seriously loves Calgary, as does his family by all accounts.  Wouldn't surprise me a bit if he was traded, Calgary got a king's ransom for him, and he returned there in the off season. 

 

No thanks. 

Agreed.

 

What's the point of giving up a ton for the guy if all he'll do is re-sign with Calgary later this summer?

I think the next step is to put Richard Bernstein in Murph's old spot between the benches.

OK - politically incorrect, or in general poor taste on my behalf...

 

I see what you did there.




#2372699 Larry Murphy Fired by FSD

Posted by F.Michael on 23 March 2013 - 02:57 PM

Belle Tire!!!! God the FSD Corporate stuff is absolute crap. I don't know all of you put up with the Bernstein commercials every 5 minutes

Personally I despise the Bernstein commercials - even worse when Mickey is in them :confused:

 

Wonder how much $$$ FSD gets from that law firm.....




#2372598 Interesting stat for fight fans

Posted by F.Michael on 23 March 2013 - 11:03 AM

Ahhh.....Memories of Red Wings past.

This is absurd! Who didn't love Murphy, goofy as he was. This is very sad. As Nev said, you blame ratings for a hockey game on the Pierre McGuire of your local broadcast team? "Damn, Larry is on again, can't watch my Wings tonight"... Gimme a break!

LGW should prepare a petition, or at least a thank you/support card.


I think he was entertaining. Not exactly the brightest or best, but loveable goof. What more do you want?

I agree concerning a petition, or an "e-card" for Murph...

 

I've always liked him; the guy's a multi-Cup winning Dman; a hockey HOF member; he's rather funny - especially when paired with John Keating...

 

It really boggles my mind as to whom FSD will replace him with.




#2364606 if we can find a couple of power forwards.....

Posted by F.Michael on 03 March 2013 - 11:08 PM

The unfortunate reality is that by todays standards Perry is a "power forward"...

 

With that being said - Gerard Gallant in his prime would tear Perry's head off, and **** down his neck.




#2364599 Tootoo Hit last Night

Posted by F.Michael on 03 March 2013 - 10:54 PM

Classic example of a call made by the refs based on the player's reputation, and not on the actual play/hit itself.




#2361832 Kings trade Gagne to PHI

Posted by F.Michael on 27 February 2013 - 08:29 AM

yep you're right Holland never trades picks for players. That must be why we've had 4 first round picks since 2001.

 

Gagne would be hated here, no goals, injured, and a 3.5 million dollar salary. he couldn't really play on the powerplay, never plays on the penalty kill. is a tweener 2nd-3rd liner, that isn't fast, physical, or good defensively.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe in more recent years Holland & Co had traded away late 1st round draft picks for an additional 2nd and/or 3rd round pick.
