Franzen can stay on IR for the rest of the year now that we have Pulky.

I remember when the Wings used to be the measuring stick.

I think Lids took that measuring stick with him when he retired.

Just think of Howie's ranking if he could stop a shootout attempt, and/or his Wings teammates could score more than 2 goals a night?

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 :lol:

Like I said before... It was 6f****** years ago... Get over it...


Every GM makes mistakes and that was clearly one of Holland's. Difference between Kenny and the other 29 general managers is that his mistakes are a lot more few and far between.

Sorry.....Watching Franzen play sorta reminds me that we could've had Hossa.

Yep. I'm full of Glenmorangie now. Very, very full that is.

Just picked up the Balvenie 15 yr Single Barrel Sherry Cask...Holy Sherried Goodness Batman!

i seriously don't remember anyone blaming Cujo. Was it the media or just fans?

Huge hype.


Cujo leaving  a very good Maple Leafs for the Red Wings, and with Dom retiring just after winning it all in 2002.....Cujo had some big shoes to fill.

It was a lot of both that I recall. And then the whole Hasek fiasco just made things worse. In my opinion, that goalie controversy was the worst management in memory, regarding the Wings



That was a total clusterf*** created by Holland.

I heard it was to his appendix. Doubtful he'll be able to score at all anymore.

Franzen couldn't score in a women's prison with a handful of pardons.

#2561325 Visiting Fan

Posted by F.Michael on 07 January 2015 - 01:24 PM

I am a long-time Wings fan from St. Louis.

I will be visiting Detroit to attend the March 22nd game.

I will most definitely be in Wings gear, but a friend who is attending wants to wear her St. Louis Blues jersey.

I have never been to The Joe before and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what the atmosphere will be like for her.

Honestly, she asked if she shouldn't wear it for fear of aggressive fans.


Any warnings?

In my travels - 95% plus Red Wing fans at the Joe are very friendly, and reasonable (unless trash talking, or stupidity takes place).


I've pretty much felt the same in St.Louis when I wore my Wings jersey there; the vast majority were very nice, and I had no issues.


I honestly think your gf will be fine with her Blues jersey...Have fun!

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 think were gonna see kindl waived soon.
Its kind if obvious that it needs to happen.

That won't happen...Instead Holland will reward Kindl with a 3 year contract extension.

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.
