#2345149 1/22 GDT : Stars 2 at Red Wings 1

If someone beat up Franzen, would anyone here be upset?

Maybe she's voicing her displeasure with the NHL lockout, and with Holland's offseason ineptitude in general.

 

You go girl!




#2344789 Jordin Tootoo: Usage? (6:57 TOI vs. Columbus)

I can only assume this is your Andy Kaufman-like commitment to pretending Lilja is a good fighter, because yes it was basically a lot of swing and misses and falling down.

I do admire your dedication to this bit though.

 

Souray fell down after Lilja cracked through his helmet.  The video doesn't lie.  

 

One punch TKO.

I feel Tootoo is nothing more than a role player.  And while fighting is cool and all we need hockey players first and foremost, and fighters second.  And I think we have better hockey players on the roster than Tootoo that can use the ice time better than him. 

 

We don't have anyone who can play the physical game he plays.  

 

Helm would be the closest, but Tootoo is more physical and more dangerous to play against than Helm.  And Helm is seemingly always hurt now to boot.  

 

If you're looking to bench someone who isn't contributing in their "role", it wouldn't be Tootoo.  

 

And role players are very important to teams.  You make them sound pointless in your first sentence.  The Wings wouldn't have won any of our Cups without role players.   




#2344441 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

How can you be 6'4 and only weigh 205?  




#2344427 Red Wings sign D Kent Huskins to 1-year, $750k contract

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 January 2013 - 12:06 PM

this is a joke right? At least chose Vandermeer instead of this guy, Jesus "veteran defenseman" and working on the phone for hours.......don't make us believe and then drop the damn ball /me = pissed

 

Holland doesn't like guys who stick up for their teammates and play a physical brand of hockey.

 

Just be happy we actually signed Tootoo, but any more grit and Holland wouldn't be able to sleep at night.  




#2344415 Emdog or Cleary?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 January 2013 - 11:59 AM

Neither should be on the main roster.  




#2344357 New Defenseman: Guess who?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 January 2013 - 11:37 AM

They won't tell us until the introduction of the players tonight.

 

Said player will come out last, to his own entrance music.

This team looks worse than Tyler Kennedy's face.

Theres a shocker.   Anyone coulda predicted that would happen.  He's been a walking injury report.

 

Which makes Holland even dumber for giving him a 2.5 million a year contract.

Howard proving that he's the worst breakaway goalie in the league.  Terrible work with the pads there.

I told you guys last week that Lashoff would be the first Wing to score this season!

Well, at least we shut down Rick Nash in that period.

 

I didn't hear his name mentioned once.

Someone should fight Foligno here.

 

That was cheap.




#2343216 Anthony Stewart Placed on Waivers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 January 2013 - 07:24 PM

He punches people in the face and Holland, Nill and Devellano all hate those type of guys.  Those type of players are "outside their comfort zone" as Holland said when they reluctantly brought in Toots.

 

esteef

 

I have a feeling Babcock doesn't agree with them, from reading his quotes about tough guys and what guys like Downey or McCarty brought to the team.
