#2328593 Report: Wings close to signing Carlo Colaiacovo

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 September 2012 - 03:27 PM

If we're lucky, he might be the next Jason Woolley.


#2328034 Bruins sign Marchand to four year contract extension.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 September 2012 - 10:58 AM

Verbeek scored 500 goals in his career. You guys are giving Marchand way too much credit comparing him to Verbeek.

As I've said before, Marchand could only exist on a team like Boston. If he played for the Wings, he'd get his ass kicked by opposing teams, with no one to protect him.


#2327824 Russia/Canada Revisit the Summit Series

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 September 2012 - 08:20 PM

If the refs called the series fair, Canada wouldn't have had to rely on the heroic goal from Paul Henderson to win. They likely would have won the series 6-2. Also, if all the NHLers that didn't show up would have played in the series against "the best the Russians had to offer" they would have won more convincingly. Only 1 name needed to end the Kharlamov debate....Bobby Orr.


Bobby Hull would have also made a difference.

But Canada would have had a tough time against the Soviets either way. Their team was together all year, while Canada's team needed time to gel together.


#2327508 Move Over Winter Classic

This is perfect, get all of the reasonably talented goons in the NHL and have them battle it out in a bruiser hockey game. You bring the great sport of hockey and combine it with the tradition of the gladiator arena and have 15+ fights during the course of the event.


Do fans get to put their thumbs down when they're not entertained?

Where can I buy a beer, a hot dog, and take a leak?


Typical American. :sleepy:


I don't remember that being addressed in "Gladiator", though, so it's a good question.

I'm expecting to see an Eric Daze thread any day now.

#2326337 New Commissioner?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 August 2012 - 08:45 PM

I can see Shanny getting the job sometime in the future, now that he's moving up the NHL corporate ladder.


#2326335 New Commissioner?

How about the Great One?


His daughter would ruin it for him.

#2326057 Should Kronwall have to answer the bell for his hits?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 August 2012 - 10:25 PM

I dont get why the Wings cant dress one tough guy. Its not like their bottom 6 is some elite scoring squad or something. Fricking Tomas Holmstrom.

Dude.....Don't get me started.


I know.

You've told me before about your insane hatred for Kohn and for Stacy Roest.

Am I the only one who hated Ladislav Kohn?

The guy cost us so many playoff games, that I lost count.

I hate Wendel Clark, he was a useless goon that only has recognition around the league because he was the best player on terrible teams. He is everything hockey shouldn't be, he was not smart, he was not skilled and most of all he was ugly and I didn't like his hair.


Do you hate everyone who's ever been in a hockey fight?

How can you say Wendel Clark was a useless goon? He wasn't even a goon. The guy was a pretty good player in his prime. I suppose he scored 300 goals despite having "no skill" as you put it?
