Holland was at todays game...A trade must be made that involves Franzen, for  Oshie :lol:

Good on Russia for not getting down about the no-goal. Good body language and such.


 

10 and a shootout, I believe.


Man, the Russia jersey even has the red feathers.

I gotta admit...The Russian zip 'track jackets' with the 'R U' are pretty neat.




#2478602 1/28 GDT: Red Wings 0 @ Flyers 5

Kenny Holland and Babcock don't like fighting.  They don't seem to care if their players don't stand up for fallen teammates either.  

This.

 

I understand the need to draft 'quality' players in todays NHL; it's always a smart move to pick a player whom you feel has the best ability/attitude to making it all the way.

 

Now with all that said...This team lacks an identity, and has it's fair share of those who lack 'snarl' when the team is down, or when the opponents take liberties.

 

I honestly cannot blame the players since many aren't accustomed to this style of hockey; I place the blame with Holland who would rather draft a 5 foot sumthin 150 lbs kid outta 'Eurostan' instead of some 6'3" 210 lbs kid from Windsor, and also shift some blame onto Babcock for not using someone such as Tootoo in these games, but again - they're looking to win games, and not grudge matches...It's too bad they can't win either.

Then Abby takes a huge hit in a blowout game and no one raises an eyebrow.

I for one am not surprised.

I would like one of the Schenn brothers, Luke has great size and is a steady stay at home defenseman while Brayden would fix the search for a young center.

I like them both as well; seems to be a lot of raw talent there that's in need of good coaching/mentoring.




#2478160 Franzen Placed on IR

Posted by F.Michael on 28 January 2014 - 01:56 PM

 

I mean, by the sounds of it Franzen will be able to tag along since he's never going to play hockey again...unless...unless, he's a vegetable that is. 

 

Anyway, everyone needs a wing man.  Just don't cramp my style.

No worries bro...I'm the life of a party!

EDIT - and as you can see - I got my thong!

Holding the Olympics in a country like Russia is like having a box of chocolates...Ya never know what ya gonna get.




#2477199 Stadium Series, Vol. I - Ducks @ Kings (GDT)

Posted by F.Michael on 25 January 2014 - 10:36 PM

Kings should've gone with their retro 70's/80's gold, and purple jerseys.




#2475648 So when would you make a move and what type?

Posted by F.Michael on 22 January 2014 - 09:05 PM

BTW, did anyone else think this thread would be about dating advice?

Meh - after nearly 10 years of marriage, and 3 kids I'm officially in the lobotomized category.


 

I definitely have noticed that.  On the one hand we never make any of the s***ty trades we're rumored to be making, on the other hand we never make any good ones either.  The closest we ever get is "the Red Wings are taking to GM whomever but nothing is imminent".  At least this level of ambiguity allows me to dream of something better than lame-ass Ales Hemsky.

In Hemsky's defense - he's on 'lame-ass' Edmonton.

 

Now - with all that said...He could possibly flourish in Detroit, but then again I thought the same about Weiss, and Alfredsson.




#2475405 So when would you make a move and what type?

Posted by F.Michael on 22 January 2014 - 04:37 PM

Move?

 

When?

 

Huh?

 

Not while Holland is GM.


What type of move?

 

A move for a goal scorer. Something that has been needed for 5 years....

Hey now...We have Franzen.

 

 

{note heavy sarcasm referencing Franzen as a scoring winger which we all know is a load of BS}.




#2475060 1/20 GDT: Blues 4 @ Red Wings 1

Posted by F.Michael on 21 January 2014 - 07:19 AM

I'm sof****** sick of this. I lived through the 80s please don't make me do it again

You, and me both.

 

 

Except in the 80's, we'd be gooning it up right now with Probert and Kocur. 

 

This sorry team can't give its fans anything to root for or enjoy.  

QFT!




#2473580 1/16 GDT : Red Wings 0 at Rangers 1

Posted by F.Michael on 16 January 2014 - 10:06 PM

Come on guys.  It was a really good game.  They aren't going to win many games with this lineup.  It's just not going to happen.  It sucks, but it's not nearly as frustrating (to me anyway) as when they should play better and they fail miserably.  Honestly, they should have played worse or the score should definitely have been worse.  The team the Rangers iced was better that the players Detroit has available.

So far this season seems to be either they lose because of piss poor effort (see our loss to the Isles a few weeks ago), or they lose because they're simply out matched.

 

Either way - we still lose.

What makes me mad is that someone didn't shove that pig-nosed Olympic diver into the glass snout 1st.
