#2347390 Ken Holland on TSN 1290

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 27 January 2013 - 12:56 PM

I think we're going to start seeing fans jump off the Wings bandwagon this season and jump on the Blackhawks. I don't mind, we'll see who the true fans are.

 

I'm going no where, I've been a fan since 1989, and a Tigers fan since 1983.

 

:rolleyes:

 

Right, because most Wings fans who are unhappy are actually future Blackhawks fans.

Intimidation - pure, and simple.

 

Will Stuart go looking for another big hit now that he knows the other team will retaliate?

 

That's the point I wanted to make and you said it better than I did.

 

Intimidation.  Plain and simple.  Stuart will think twice about hitting Landeskog or any other Avalanche top player again.  That's exactly what the Avs and their fans would want.  

 

This is because Kocur wasnt on Stevie's line. I saw Perry go after a guy right away after one of his linemates got hit. I love that guy. He is like old school Shanny.

 

Perry is a ***** who can't fight.  How do you compare him to Shanny, who had around 100+ fights from what I remember?

The refs tossed a bunch of guys at the end before any "excitement" could happen too. Thanks Bettman!

Again?

 

What exactly is the penalty called?  10 minute misconduct for a future penalty?  

 

Remember that Tom Cruise movie, "Minority Report"?

Fighting after a clean hit is one of the only times I think guys should get 5, 2, and a 10.  

 

I know it's a little different because he's the captain, but i'm so sick of guys getting jumped after clean hits.  That's more of an attempt to take hitting out of the game than anything Bettman does. 

 

Honestly, I have no problem with fights after clean hits.  I understand why someone wouldn't want their star players getting hit with big hits, whether it was legal or not.  If someone nailed Datsyuk with a clean hit, I'd want someone to step in and make others think twice about doing that.  

 

As long as fighting is legal, so is fighting from clean hits.  Then again, I also want the instigator removed, so I can see how you'd be even more upset if that were done.

 

Oh, and I forgot what a terrible fighter Stuart is.




#2346956 1/25 GDT : Wild 3 at Red Wings 5

Did Cleary's breakaway remind anyone else of game 6 of the 2009, SCF?  

 

:confused:




#2345919 PK Subban

I agree. That's what I meant when I said the price would be high, meaning that they would want worthwhile forwards in exchange and really that leaves Helm and possibly Abdelkader.

 

Abdelkader, unlike Helm, is expendable.  

 

This team really seems to struggle when Helm isn't around.  




#2345415 Call up the kids now

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 January 2013 - 11:46 AM

Who are these kids?

 

Our farm system isn't as good as people here make it out to be.

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)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 January 2013 - 07:09 PM

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.  




#2344492 Jordin Tootoo: Usage? (6:57 TOI vs. Columbus)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 January 2013 - 12:52 PM

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.
