#2235164 Crosby has "concussion symptoms"

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 December 2011 - 10:21 PM

One thing is for sure, it's unlikely he'll ever be the same again.

I can't see him coming back and never having any setbacks when it comes to concussions and headaches. He couldn't even make it for a month after having a whole year off. And the hits he took weren't even that severe.

Many players have had their careers end early, but this could potentially be the worst such example. Maybe in any sport. We're talking about a guy who was on pace to finish his career as a top 10 all time player.


#2235162 Jimmy Howard eyes spot in NHL All-Star game

I bet Howard would make the ASG if we had an enforcer


The last two goalies the Wings had play in the ASG, were Ozzie in 2008 and Hasek in 2002.

Both of those seasons we had enforcers. Also, those were our last two Cup runs.

You were trolling, but your post was actually right. :thumbup:


#2235139 Reason for not practicing for two days straight?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 December 2011 - 08:45 PM

What I want to know is why Ericsson and Conklin have a day off?


#2235134 Filatov traded to Sens for second round pick

Nice going Kenny. <_< :thumbdown:

Should have gotten both Filatov and Semin, and have Hudler center them on a line.

This is bad for the NHL.

He's their best player, whether you like it or not. That wouldn't be good for any sport, especially a sport that refuses to market other stars, besides Ovechkin.

Hahaha, this is awesome. Red Wings fans are so dedicated to winning (just like the team itself) that they want to play the strategic move and pull their players from the ASG to rest. I love this place.


Pretty sad isn't it? As if so many players perenially get injured in the ASG.

How are our superstars any more precious than other teams, who routinely send their best players if they're healthy?

I agree the game has many flaws, but it's still special to these players and to the fans who want to see the event or attend it.

Why is he better off not playing?

It would be a special thing for him and for the Wings to have him in the ASG. He's not the only goalie in the league who plays a lot that would potentially play in the ASG. Let him play. It'll be fun.

It's a chance to be in the same building as the best players in the league. Also, there's plenty of players who'll never get that chance and would give anything to play in the ASG. Can't take that for granted.

Easy question. The Wings are winning. So the critics are happy.


I'm not happy.

Should have won 7-0. Howard is no Carey Price indeed.

It's amazing that these soft Wings are able to score one goal, let alone 6. Terrible.
/GMR.


Are you competing with Crymson for who can be a better troll?

My concerns are long term playoff ones, not some regular season crap games here and there. We blew out plenty of teams last year too. We've also been blown out this year in some games. It's an 82 game season.

Wow!

I was going to hold off watching this game until it's about halfway through. Same thing last game.

I think I'll make it a pattern now. :lol:

I hope Jackman's greed comes back to bite him here...


I hope he gets bitten by werewolves with STD's.

Time to send the paralyzer out there.

He's useless anyway. May as well just do it agian.

we could paint the number 52 on a pylon and pay it 3 million and it would be more effective.


Surely, there's some team in the Swedish Elite League who'll take him?

f*** this s***.

The Blues have our number. Guess it's not just San Jose.

Ozzie has to stop that.
