Tootoo gets kicked out for being a hockey player.

 

Than you Bettman for making this a worse league.  They tossed him because he might get into a fight later.

 

What a freaking joke hockey has become.

Anyone know Darien Hatcher's phone number?  Some guy named Kenny is wondering.

 

 

1-555-LURCH

If Ilitch pulled the plug several seasons ago, we could have a guy named Steve Yzerman as our current general manager.

A lot of over reaction going on right now. The Wings are just rusty, things will pick up in the 2nd period.

 

Dude, we look like Ireland at the Euros right now.

Haha. I've no idea. This is only my first game. I'll tell you once I get the hang of it :D

 

In case you haven't figured it out, Franzen is Fernando Torres around here.

I'm not really sure what type of guy you mean?  Do you have any examples of someone you think fits the bill in terms of style of play?  Doesn't have to be someone on the market, I just want to get an idea of what you're looking for. 

 

I always wanted to have an Erskine type player here.  A guy who regularly dressed on defense for the Capitals, and was an enforcer to boot.  Sheldon Brookbank is another such player.  

 

These types of bottom pairing D-men clear the crease, stick up for teammates, and are tough to play against in a playoff series.  And they're bone-fide tough guys/enforcers.  Also, these kinds of players don't cost a lot of money.  




#2340918 GM Ken Holland says Red Wings might not make playoffs this year

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 January 2013 - 12:37 PM

I don't see Babcock getting fired, but Holland probably will if that happens.  

 

He just hasn't given Babcock enough to work with the last couple of seasons.  There's only so much a coach can do with an old team that won't forecheck or score goals in the playoffs.  

 

Holland tried to make moves last offseason, but came up woefully short.  He'll pay the price if the Wings fail.

He dropped the gloves less often than Justin Abdelkader last season.  So he's the guy that's going to stick up for our stars?

 

I agree.  We should get another fighter, preferably on defense.  




#2340793 Jeremy Roenick's book and the introduction is AMAZING

The chapter about his day with the Cup should be a really good re.....................................................oh wait, nevermind.

But, but.......... I thought Downey and McCarty weren't important to our roster in 2008, as has been debated to death on this forum.  

 

 

:innocent:

Like I'm giving those idiots any of my money.  Nobody should pay it.  Even if it was $5.99. 




#2339606 Wings give Mike Knuble a tryout

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 January 2013 - 10:13 PM

....give Lapointe a call?

 

 

If he still looks like this, I'm sure the sex-starved girls in the Water Cooler won't mind.

#2339582 Johan Franzen - Once and For All

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 January 2013 - 07:35 PM

Now Helm and Tatar are "better" than Franzen too.  Is someone playing a practical joke on me?  Am I being punked? 

 

It's pretty obvious they they work harder, and if that alone makes them better in your eyes then great, but I hope you realize how seriously flawed that thinking is.  For instance, Jiri Hudler was a real hard worker, was he better than Franzen too? 

 

Hudler worked hard?

Brad Stuart.

 

So five deadlines and five offseasons ago.  

 

Good job Kenny.   :thumbup:



hahahahah Don't hate on ol Cory 

 

You can't tell me this wasn't exciting 

 

The best Wings beatdown in recent memory.  That and Lilja's pussification of Sheldon Souray's face.
