#2326057 Should Kronwall have to answer the bell for his hits?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 19 August 2012 - 10:25 PM

I dont get why the Wings cant dress one tough guy. Its not like their bottom 6 is some elite scoring squad or something. Fricking Tomas Holmstrom.

Dude.....Don't get me started.


I know.

You've told me before about your insane hatred for Kohn and for Stacy Roest.

Am I the only one who hated Ladislav Kohn?

The guy cost us so many playoff games, that I lost count.

I hate Wendel Clark, he was a useless goon that only has recognition around the league because he was the best player on terrible teams. He is everything hockey shouldn't be, he was not smart, he was not skilled and most of all he was ugly and I didn't like his hair.


Do you hate everyone who's ever been in a hockey fight?

How can you say Wendel Clark was a useless goon? He wasn't even a goon. The guy was a pretty good player in his prime. I suppose he scored 300 goals despite having "no skill" as you put it?


#2325901 Should Kronwall have to answer the bell for his hits?

Not enough physical contact for me, I like football.

You don't need to be an idiot and take shots to the head and become suicidal to be physical in today's game. Fighting is a cave man skill, now that we understand the human brain more and more, it's surprising to me people like you still want to see young men dead every off season. It truly boggles my mind that we are so backwards in this sport, and I can't wait until we catch up with the rest of the world, I'm tired of seeing players shave years along with quality of their life to appease a part of a sports fan base.

In the meantime, you can watch UFC.


FIghting has been a part of North American hockey for a long time. I don't want that tradition to change. I shouldn't have to watch the UFC to see a sport I've been watching since I was a kid.

I understand where you're coming from but I disagree. I love seeing the other team squirm and lose their focus and try to get retribution when they should be focusing on the game itself. Vladdy said it best: "I don't need to score the goal. I need someone to start thinking about me and forgetting about scoring goals."
On the other hand, when Zetterberg gets his face slammed into the boards (or any other illegal and dangerous attack), then I expect the team to strike down with great fury. The acquisition of Tootoo should help in that regard.


Our powerplay is no longer an enforcer. It flat out sucks.

And nobody is rattled by our team like they were say in 2002.

Absolutely not, hitting is a part of the game. Fighting isn't. Can't wait until fighting is gone and I don't have to waste my time seeing idiots punch each other.


In the meantime, go watch the NBA.


#2325886 Red Wings player ratings for NHL 13

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 18 August 2012 - 06:56 PM

At least its not osgood in real life! 19:05 of the third. Wings up by one. MacInnis from the red line. Good God.


My favorite was NHL 2000.

That game was fun, but I could never get over those backhanded goals scored from the blueline, where the puck was essentially chipped over the goalie's shoulder. Pissed me off each time. :lol:


#2325065 Andreas Lijla Out 4 months

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 13 August 2012 - 08:07 PM

Lilja is terrible.


That's not what Patrick Sharp's face said.


#2323904 Our current forwards.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 August 2012 - 04:11 PM

All you need to know about why we suck, is that you have Dan Cleary on the top line.

Hell, it doesn't matter how you slice it, our forward lineup is old on the top 2 lines.

And keep in mind, many of these players have a history of injuries, so depth will be a factor. I expect to see Nyquist, Tatar and Mursak a lot this season.


#2323652 Do you want us to trade for Ott?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 August 2012 - 09:26 PM

Godard, yeah? He and every other pure enforcer is not not on the ice in the play-offs. We need guys like Darren McCarty. Ott fits this well.


Playoffs? Who said anything about playoffs?

Sign away Kenny.


#2322672 Your thoughts on Sergei Fedorov

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 July 2012 - 03:32 PM

Fedorov WAS one of the best forwards in history. To say otherwise is ridiculous. Is he on par with Howe, Richard, Gretzky, and Lemieux? Probably not. But he's definitely on par with the Beliveau's, Hull's, and Esposito's. Put 91 up there and patch things up.

LOL.

He's not remotely in the same league as any of those players. To say otherwise is indeed ridiculous.


#2322303 Semin signs one year, $7m deal with Carolina

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 July 2012 - 08:20 PM

Remember how everyone felt OK after the Nashville loss, because we'd have plenty of money to spend on all these big free agents left and right?

:glare:


#2320805 Flyers sign Weber to offer sheet: 14y/$110m ($56m 1st 4yrs)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 20 July 2012 - 07:24 PM

Gimme a break. Bertuzzi made sure he'd never think about doing it again.


Bertuzzi didn't even land a punch.

I'm saying Weber wouldn't have done it in the first place if he knew somebody like MacIntyre or Engelland would be after him at some point in the future. Who would?
