Ok, if that's your biggest beef against him, then yeah, absolutely, he sucks, and he and Mick could not be further apart. Mick, while still having "homer" moments, is pretty unbiased. And while Mick may still get nostalgic about the old days, I think he understands the direction the league is going and he has, begrudgingly, accepted it. But I also know that he would probably get giddy like a schoolgirl if Holland traded for someone like Matt Martin.
You can hear the excitement in Micks voice if/when a Wing drops the gloves...
GMR - Bring back the Bruise Bros - frank grimes - RyanBarnes - myself, and a few others all text each other about the fight like school girls do with each other when 1 of them gets a text from that boy they like in class
I don't get how in all this time that Franzen has essentially 'clocked out' of being a factor for this team on most nights, no one has ever really called him out on it, I mean from the coaching staff and/or players
It's always crap like, 'Yeah, 'ol Mule's gotta get going, we need him out there' and generic stuff like that- perhaps more is said behind closed doors, but if it is, it still isn't getting through
I wish a coach and/or teammate would publicly call him out, might wake his despondent ass up
The 'Mule' wouldn't have lasted long on Bowman's 97/98 teams - be it in the locker room, or on the ice...Yzerman, and others would've have a few chats.

I know you're not defending goons here, but I've got to ask, how is he any different than any other goon?
Everybody always says about Scott, "its a farce that he's in the league". But how's he any worse than Orr, Parros, McGrattan, Westgarth, etc.? I remember Milbury going off on Scott and how he's such a disgrace, but he was completely mum on all the other guys in the league who do the EXACT same thing on the ice. I honestly don't care about goons so I don't pay attention, is he a particularly disgraceful goon?
How much you charge for painting a house?
With such large strokes of the brush - you certainly cover alot.

Are you kidding me?! *Chamomile*? IT'S NOT EVEN A REAL TEA!! It's a fricking *herb*. Are you so full of yourself that you can't appreciate a decent green tea? You're probably the type that prefers English Breakfast over Irish Breakfast. I just don't know what to say to you anymore. You're clearly an uncivilized ass.
.....and to think I was gonna ship a bottle of 16 yr Lagavulin to the desert.
