I miss Esteef - he made me giggle.

Just another tough guy lover scared away from here by the modern Wings fan.

Three years in a row now he's made a deal. Quincey, Legwand, Cole.

Or was Q a year before that?

 

Just had another thought.  One of those trades was with Yzerman and the other was with Jim Nill.  Maybe it's just a coincidence, but they are Holland's proteges.

I can't wait to see who we acquire in our next trade, in the year 2019.  




#2575666 Couture suspen.....no wait, just fined pocket change

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 27 February 2015 - 04:25 PM

Which is why we need goons :crazy:

 

If I was Couture, I wouldn't slew foot Smith if I had to deal with someone who looks like this:

#2575613 Sounds like the New York "Islanders" are no more...

Only replace this fisherman guy with the Brooklyn Brawler

That would be the new logo.




#2575610 2/26 GDT : Red Wings 3 at San Jose Sharks 2

We don't have legitimate gripes about the officiating.  That's the problem.  We're consistently one of the LEAST PENALIZED teams in the league.  AND we're consistently GIVEN THE MOST POWERPLAYS. 

 

Very few, if any, teams go to the box less, or go on the man advantage more.  Them's the facts.  I'd give the theory some credence if we never got a powerplay, or if we were always in the box.  But neither of those things are true. 

 

But for whatever reason our fans have internalized this belief that everybody is out to get them.  Bettman hates us.  The refs are throwing games.  The media doesn't recognize our star players. 

 

It's all bologna.  SUPER, duper, annoying bologna. 

 

We got screwed in the 2009 Finals so we deserve reparations from the NHL.    :baaa:

I'd rather see some disciplinary action towards Rooney and his band of scum sucking pigs...

 

I feel the same way about Manchester United, but what do they have anything to do with this?  




#2574933 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

It did look like Ericsson was going to destroy Benn untill he fell or got pulled down.
Big E is a really good fighter IMO, not that it adds much to this conversation.
Isn't Smith a pretty skilled fighter too? It's been so long since I've seen him throw down I can't remember.
One thing I always used to like about fighting is that in other sports you can just trash talk all day but in hockey you have to back it up.

 

Smith used to be a good fighter until he came to Detroit and got neutered by his coach.  Ericsson has handled himself well in fights against guys like Clowe and Boll.  He's not exactly going to destroy anyone, but he can defend himself with his size.  


That type of play seems to happen every game. The outcome here is unfortunate, but I don't think there is any/much precedent for suspension.

 

I have to agree with you.  These plays do happen frequently.  I've never seen that called a 5 minute major.  Not once in all my time of watching NHL hockey have I seen that.  Rarely is something that isn't ever called a 5 minute major going to result in a suspension.  




#2574848 Patrick Kane, out anywhere from a month to rest of the season

Too bad. Hope they fall out of the playoffs.

So much for being the first American to win the Art Ross.

Why do you have such a high # of posts....Are you one of those people that don't know when to hush? haha

 

Has anyone ever told you that you and kipwinger have very similar avatars?  One would think you'd learn to get along.

nobody here can defend Howard. He was total blame for this entire s*** stain. He s*** the bed in Dallas, he was the entire blame tonight. How much longer do we have to put up with this poor excuse for a goalie?

 

Relax.  Franzen is coming back soon.

Man, I have NO faith in Howard in the shootout. He gets schooled regularly.

 

Can we get a backup who specializes in shootouts and play him in the shootouts?

 

What's Peter Schmeichel up to these days?

Howard couldn't stop a beach ball.
