#2218978 A Goalie is Needed

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 27 October 2011 - 03:21 PM

We need to find a goalie who absolutely refuses to procreate. Make that a contractual clause maybe.

#2218867 This team screams for a trade

What you're seeing from GMR is called defensive pessimism, though he's sure to falsely label it as 'realism.'


Crymson, I don't think we're going to win the Cup this year.

I do think moves need to be made at some point this season.

In my opinion, we can't win the Cup with this roster. We've tried two seasons in a row, and couldn't get past the 2nd round. Sometimes, you have to try something different, and not keep banging your head against a brick wall in aimless futility.

And I'm not saying this because we've lost two games in a row. I said before the season that some kind of changes would have to be made at the deadline. We'll have to wait till then.

We're still a good team and will likely win the division, but there's no reason to expect a Cup run with this roster. We've learned as much in recent years.

Meanwhile, the Pens continue to dominate without Crosby and Malkin. <_<

In 2007-08 the Red Wings' first 7 games were 4-2-1 (9 pts) -- pretty sure we remember how that season ended.

So far they have 5-2-0 (10 pts) and are on pace for 117. So, following a horrendous 5-2 start, without reservation, we begin another season episode of Panic time! :yowza:


Yeah, but in 2008 we had Downey. We don't have Downey now.

I fail to see your point.


#2218700 Abdelkader

How about a 4th line of Ericsson/Abdelkader/Bertuzzi?

That would be our "enforcer line"


#2218232 Thoughts on Ericsson?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 October 2011 - 03:59 PM

??? Yah, people are real scared of Bertuzzi. His shove-fests are frightening.

Bertuzzi is a sissy.

Ericsson hasn't fought anybody yet, but he doesn't shy away from it. I want to see him take on an enforcer.


Hey, you don't want to see Bertuzzi angry.

Just ask DraperFan......I mean Steve Moore.


#2218060 Jimmy Howard will miss Tuesday's Game

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 October 2011 - 10:03 PM

Here's Mindfly's opinion on the subject (from HFBoards):


You can probably guess the response he got.


God, I miss that man.

Tell him I said that.


#2218046 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 October 2011 - 09:22 PM

Neck-break counter:

Pronger: 0
Bertuzzi: 1



Bertuzzi has broken infinity percent more necks than Pronger has.



Although his "physics" hit on Holmstrom was pretty dirty and made Holmstrom even uglier than he already was.


Pronger has a lot worse reputation for repeated dirty plays than Bertuzzi does.

Bertuzzi just got carried away on one play, and the end result wound up being worse than anything Pronger ever did.

But I don't think of Bertuzzi as a career cheap shot artist. Pronger just doesn't seem to give a s*** about some of the stuff he's pulled.


#2218040 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 October 2011 - 09:12 PM

Exactly.

I guess I gave Wings fans too much credit. Pronger has been a major rival over the years, but from the replay and from McKenzie's twitter update, it seems pretty likely he either had an injury to his eye or a very close call. It sucks to see any player suffer an injury like that during a game.

jeebus people. It's not like Pronger has ended anyone's career like Bertuzzi.


So stepping on someone with your skate isn't an attempt to seriously injure someone?


#2218037 Pronger injured after high-stick

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 October 2011 - 09:11 PM

One person made a comment to this affect, but I don't believe anyone else here said they were happy he was hurt, or that they hoped he lost an eye, or that his career was over. Your post would have been better suited if everyone had. He goes in the same pile for me as Corey Perry, Matt Cooke, and other douchebags, but that doesn't mean I find joy in his obvious pain, and I hope I can speak for others in that as well.

There's no need for any moralizing.


Make that two people.

This piece of s*** deserves to be injured after trying to step on people with his skate and running people from behind into the boards. Don't forget his cheap attempt to injure Yzerman in the 2002 playoffs. He's attempted to injure many players in his career. What goes around comes around.


#2217914 What's up with Zetterberg?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 October 2011 - 12:38 PM

Put Bertuzzi on the top line and take Cleary (and his balance issues) off it.


#2217913 I went to school with Abdelkader. Nice guy.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 October 2011 - 12:35 PM

I went to school with Chris Pronger and taught Sidney Crosby in high school.

Both great guys.
