#2024209 Red Wings might opt to keep Ritola at the expense of Miller

Posted by Swayze on 09 August 2010 - 08:50 AM

...and this is EXACTLY why I didn't want Modano here.

#2021866 Mike Modano signs with Detroit

As long as we don't lose Ritola over this AND it's a 1-year deal, I guess i'll be okay about it. He better either hit or hella-backcheck though, and I know he doesn't hit.

#2017926 Wings should sign Paul Kariya

Posted by Swayze on 22 July 2010 - 02:16 AM

I'd rather have Kariya than Modano, but he'd want more money too.

#2014005 Osgood may retire following this season

Regardless of how McCollum does this year (I hope great), we should get a 1-year veteran next year that can keep Jimmy to around 60-65 games (hopefully), and then the next year bring Thomas up.

Both my opinion and my prediction.

#2005918 Jimmy Nill's Annual Bonus Picks Announced

Umm in a sense yes it is taking one for the team. He runs the other teams goalie, knows he's going to get beat up for doing so but also raise his teams chances at knocking their goalie off his game and scoring on him more.

Archibald hitting that goalie like that has absolutely no effect on the dressing room except maybe a positive one because after something like that and a brawl everyone is a little pumped up.

As for people with mean streaks ending up like Avery.. Avery has hardly made any really dirty plays on the ice and plays the game hard. Its what he does off the ice that makes him a douchebag. For every player with a mean streak who is a locker room poison, I can probably name you 2 skilled guys who are bad in the dressing room.

Overall, it doesn't matter that you think he is dirty or anything because the wings clearly hope he can add this aggression to our organization. Holland wants to add him so they must like his style of play.

Did you not even pay attention to the video? There was like 45 seconds left in the 3rd period, so what does Archibald gain by doing that? He was just raged and lost his temper, plain and simple. And I guess you don't know that the Colts ended up getting swept as well, so there goes that "positive effect" in the dressing room. Re-read my 2nd post. I said IF he does get to Grand Rapids, maybe he'll have an attitude change, but if he doesn't and brings that kind of trash to the table then he'll never be a Wing.

Mean streaks are fine and dandy, but if he ends up being locker room poison, then no.

I guess it's an over-reaction, as if he ever DID make the big club, it'd be in a few years time. Who knows, maybe he'll shape up.

Archibald is af****** goon, I wouldn't put him in a winged-wheel for anything.

You really want this d-bag on our team?

#2004498 RWNW: LA/OC Jimmy Howard Meet & Greet

Posted by Swayze on 25 June 2010 - 01:10 PM

Sorry DD13 but people here count too! We all hope to see players when they are here or doing autograph meet & greets. I put LA/OC in the title of the thread so people wouldn't get confused.

RWNW has a large following out here.

To be honest, I had no idea what LA/OC meant in the title.

#1999680 somehow, we need to get a scoring third line center...

Posted by Swayze on 14 June 2010 - 10:33 PM

Could it be that we didn't have a productive 3rd line because they were all filling in for top 6 injuries? Hmmm.....

(the answer is yes)

Who cares, on to free agent season.

...yeah, so no one realizes he's most likely not a native English speaker, or just being assholes for fun?

#1992285 Lidstrom Signs 1-Year Contract Extension

Posted by Swayze on 01 June 2010 - 11:14 AM

It's disappointing because of the huge pay cut Yzerman took his last year playing, it should have been something similar (unless he does play one more year and does it then).

Throw towels on the ice for winning game one!!!!!

...what a bunch of bandwagon idiots.

#1987700 Good old Regular Season Joe

Posted by Swayze on 20 May 2010 - 05:50 PM

You mustn't have watched many of his games with much attention.

I hate Joe Thornton but he has been by far their best player since Round 1. He seemed to be the only player with an ounce of passion in him in the last game. You wanna point fingers?? Heatley and Marleau. They've been extra pathetic. But Joe Thornton has been much improved in these playoffs.

Seriously guys. You can't base an opinion solely on stats.

Oh, that guy who scored the only goals for San Jose last game? Yeah, you can blame it on him. Passion doesn't win cups, or half of this board would have rings.

Prepared this before we started the playoffs, better now than never I guess.
