Too much hypocrisy around here.

When we carried Downey, May or McCarty during the last few seasons, I don't remember too many posters here bitching about how useless those players were and how they were just taking up roster spots. Now everyone seems to think an enforcer has no business on this roster unless he can also score 20 points or so.

I'm confident that if Holland and company ever changed their long-term philosophy on this (which they never will), peeople here would have a totally different outlook on the "enforcer" role in hockey and whether it would be a good fit on this team.

Please let this happen! :thumbup:

Oh and the Florida Panthers have always had a cool logo and name. Why should they change the only good thing about their team?

How many games did Downey play in the 2008 playoffs? Same answer as yours.


Doesn't the regular season count?

Besides, McCarty played in the playoffs.

The Wings were hated on fight sites even when they carried Downey and May. Of course, they're going to be hated now when our best fighter is Ericsson of all people.

I would like to see some toughness on the 4th line, since we hardly have any irreplaceable 4th liners anyway. I'm sure the fans at the JLA wouldn't mind it either.

Torres headhunting again.

What a bag of s***.

f*** the boring NHL! :ranting:

Thornton just got tossed from the game for being an enforcer. Guy did nothing that warranted being tossed from the game. Bulls*** officiating!

Why don't the refs just put a big condom on both Burrows and Lapierre to protect anyone from getting to them physically?

f*** you Bettman!

Lapierre taunting Bergeron by daring him to bite his hand was pretty stupid, however.


In general, anything Lapierre does is stupid.

He kinda looks like John Cena. Do not want :ph34r:


Except Cena is more physical. :hehe:

Pitkanens physical? News to me.


Blueadams is a Wings fan, so he has a different understanding of that word. ;)


#2182850 NHL local ratings for game 1-Nashiville tied for 7th

These stats prove that Hartford deserves the Whalers back! :thumbup:

Not my first option and one goofy looking dude.

#2182772 Changes in the offseason

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 June 2011 - 03:09 PM

Can we all at least agree that Wade Belak is a good fit here?

He can play both forward and defense (can Crosby do that?) and has that North American blonde hair and square jaw that fans at the JLA would root for.

Belak = ratings

Oh and he can be coaxed out of retirement to take one last run at the Cup (he's never won one)

Smug are the "fans" of teams that have a relatively successful history telling fans of another team how they should act when their team is being successful.

The reality is the fans have little to nothing to do with the outcome of the games, so as self assured and arrogant as many Wings fans can be they really have no reason to be that way.

Wings fans merely support a team that had the likes of Yzerman, Lidstrom, Fedorov, Shanahan, Hull, Chelios, Larionov, Robitaille, Rafalski, Zetterburg, Datsyuk, Hasek....etc...etc...etc over the last 15 seasons.

Why not let Vancouver fans enjoy their success? It's not as though the Wings were affected by the Canucks at all this season.

As for those saying the Canucks aren't even a good SCF team or potential winner. That's ridiculous. No team, not even the Wings has finished first in GF/GA, points and PP% in the same season since the 1970s.

Sure the Canucks almost lost to Chicago, but the reality is they did not lose. One could say the Wings almost beat SJ, but that would be a pretty pointless conversation.

If I was a Wings fan I'd be happy with my team's success over the last few years but I wouldn't cut down my opponent's success in a fit of bitterness as I wouldn't see the point in being negative long after my team had wrapped up their season and hit the lynx.


Because Canucks fans act arrogant even when their team has had no success (which is all but 3 seasons in their history).

That's why other teams' fans have been afraid of this moment for a while. I can't understand why Canucks fans are surprised that other fanbases are hostile towards them. I mean I don't get surprised when people hate on the Wings.

You have to win championships before you can be arrogant. Otherwise, it just comes off as silly behavior. That's what's always annoyed me about the behavior of Nucks fans. No previous success, but still arrogant.

This is why nobody wants Vancouver to win the Cup.

They have incredibly smug fans for a franchise that has accomplished nothing in its s***ty 40 year history.

Can you imagine how these clowns will act if they actually win one? We'll never hear the end of it.

I love the Burrows hate, just like I loved all the Bertuzzi hate when he played for Vancouver, makes these wins all that much sweeter. Don't be looking too forward to next season though, Canucks will still have most of their crew for the next few years so chances are good you'll witness your nightmare all over again as the Nucks make it two in a row :cool:


Pretty arrogant talk considering how they haven't won one Cup yet in their smug and pathetic 40 year history in the NHL.

They're on their way, but it's not over yet.
