#2439023 buffalo and toronto fight

Posted by F.Michael on 25 September 2013 - 08:11 PM

Former NHL enforcer and current Sabres colour commentator Rob Ray has valid opinions on the topic, all of which I am in total agreement with.

Scott - ‘I’m coming after you. I’m not going to hurt you but I’m coming after you.’


Umm - alrighty then...


So by Rob Ray's advice -  Kessel can  either flee with his tail tucked between his legs, and become the butt of jokes for everyone who dislikes him, OR he can do nothing with the silly notion that Scott will just bear-hug him, OR he attempts to stand his ground (mind you swinging at Scott's legs).


IMHO there's no 'easy' answer for a guy like Kessel who doesn't find himself in these sorts of situations (unlike Scott).


As always - it's easy for critics such as Rob Ray (an after the fact armchair general watching from afar) to judge someone elses actions in a 'heat of the moment' altercation.

#2438483 Burke Wins Default Judgment Against Internet Defamers

Merci pour l'offre, mais je dois travailler. Attendez une minute ... n'êtes-vous pas marié? Je suis sûr que j'ai lu que dans l'Internet.


I just noticed that this is in BC.  I wonder if there are different laws there regarding libel and the internet.

Oui - Je suis en marié ... Je vais chercher une excuse pour employer le français ici à LGW.

So Burke sued the whole Internet?

I have no problem with what Kessel did to Scott, talk about a spot picker, no Orr or McLauren in the line-up and he tries to fight Kessel? Come on, anyone that is critical of what Kessel did would have no problem if Zetterberg or Datsyuk did it if Scott had come after them during a game, and hey were in the East now so there's no guarantee we won't see something stupid like this go down. 



The "code" pretty much gave star/skill players like Kessel a free pass - that is until he goes after a teammate, or starts to swing his stick first - then Kessel's free game to anyone who wants to pound lumps on him, but this was not the case...Scott went right after Kessel, and all he did was to defend himself; lucky for Scott that Kessel didn't swing at his head.

Interesting how this was resurrected...Just posted a comment on the Brian Burke thread a few minutes ago about the flooding...



EDIT - awesome job by the Saddledome employees, and everyone else who helped with the clean up, and repairs :clap:

This might be "insurance" if they fire Feaster.



Feaster could very well be tossed in the trash heap alongside the refuse from this past summer's flood.

#2434821 Franzen: "I am not a goal scorer"

Weird. This is a pure mental/attitude issue, and I have to wonder what his deal is and how how Babs has tried to approach it. He really could do so much more.

Holland needs to find a hypnotist who can convince Franzen that he's Wendel Clark.

No more Dodge  - Ram truck commercials.

#2434677 How much do the Wings need another defenseman?

Posted by F.Michael on 02 September 2013 - 08:36 AM

I was impressed with the poise, skill set, and maturity of Danny DeKeyser...I honestly feel this young man can be a top pairing Dman within the next few seasons.

#2434344 Winter classic tickets

Blazer - Many folks here in the States, and Canada will use StubHub...




It's very reputable, efficient, and I've used it myself a handful of times.


Best of luck!

Fake laces, and the 'stars' = lame.


Add real laces, and remove the 'stars' = pretty good.

#2433321 Preds Managemant Charging Hawks Fans Double

Posted by F.Michael on 14 August 2013 - 10:11 PM

Well.....Our very own Red Wings are doing it to those of us who wish to attend the Winter Classic...


Please correct me if I'm wrong, but those who purchased tickets for the WC were more or less 'forced' into purchasing tickets for the Alumni game at Tiger Stadium?

#2431678 Tootoo back to Nashville?

Posted by F.Michael on 27 July 2013 - 08:30 PM

From what I've gathered it sounds as though there's not much "factual news" taking place so some writers conjure something up to help pass the time...I guess that's ok...


Personally - I'd rather keep Tootoo a Red Wing, and buy out, or send down to the AHL guys like Sammy/Bert/Emdog...


As for the "rumor" of Detroit having interest in Franson (another ex-Pred) - sure the Maple Leafs are struggling to keep their roster under budget, but I'm guessing a deal will get done since he's been a solid 2nd pairing Dman with both clubs (Preds/Leafs)...Not sure what Holland would send back to Toronto, and besides - would we have a log jam on D if Franson became a Wing?

It just occurred to me that Briere could hide in Parros' stache if trouble started.
