Exactly who was theirs in 2008? Running from hockeyfights.com...

Downey? Won 7 of 10, but several in close decisions. Lilja? Three, all draws. Drake? Lost 3 of five. McCarty? Zero fighting majors.


That's much tougher than the current team.

It's not necessarily about how many fights those guys had or won, but about setting a tempo all year for physical play and hitting. Come playoff time, the entire team was more hard working and physical because of the mindset those guys brought all year. Downey didn't play in the playoffs, but he toughened our "soft euros" up for the playoffs, and McCarty took over that role in the postseason.

:g:

We should start a thread about how Holland should sign a tough guy.

Good thing nobody has ever said that here. :hehe:


#2242330 1/7 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Maple Leafs 4

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 07 January 2012 - 07:39 PM

Turn the game on and it's 3-0 Steckel just scores. Game over with all this attention? Especially in Canada. No wonder most Canadian fans think we are a joke.


The Wings have won 4 Cups since a Canadian team last won one.

Their teams are af****** joke.

And so is their beer!

Corey Perry would help us right now.

Didn't Perry win the Hart Trophy last year?

How many of those will Franzen win anytime soon?

The first available big North American boy who fights.

I don't buy that. This has everything to do with losing. Not to mention, you guys hate Americans and we know it. I mean, I know ya'll are still mad about Russia winning last year, so that didn't help, but it comes back full circle to being all about losing.



Sounds like a sore loser to me.


Pretty much.

Canadians are upset because a 19 year old kid is excited that he scored goals against them in a big game? They were also upset that the Russians were celebrating during their 3 goal comeback in last year's Gold Medal game. :rolleyes: How dare they celebrate?

I'm just happy the other countries are getting better at this tournament. It's not just Canada winning every year now.

39-4 the shots are.

Crazy.


Wings fans know how problematic outshooting the other team can be if you don't score.


#2241862 Open Season on Ducks

Wow, sounds like a current forward on this team minus the physical presence and far more offensive upside Getzlaf provides.


Pretty much.

As others have pointed out, what is Franzen's upside for the future? He's already over 30 and has a history of injuries and laziness.

I know he's great in the playoffs, but I no longer think he's untradeable.


#2241545 Filppula is "too nice".

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 January 2012 - 01:05 PM

I'm wondering what gcom and Drake have to say about Filppula this year versus what they've said in the past. He's on pace for a 70 point season, like I've always said he's capable of, with no signs of slowing down. And he's been outscoring Franzen too lately, who plays with Datsyuk.


I'm interested in what you have to say about Hudler.


#2241540 Red Wings - Maple Leafs 24/7...

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 January 2012 - 01:02 PM

The whole show should be about Larry Murphy's hotdogs and Jiri Hudler's hookers.


#2241538 Henrik Sedin's Comments on Vancouver's Toughness

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 January 2012 - 12:52 PM

Let me know when the Wings showcase being gutless as a unit to the degree the Canucks did in the Stanley Cup Finals last year.


By gutless, do you mean backing down from fights and not defending yourself when someone plays tough or dirty?

We've done that several times. I remember the Philly game back in 2007, or in the playoffs against the Flames that year. Same s*** with the Ducks series, where they played dirty and we didn't really fight back because we didn't have the personnel.

Which examples are you alluding to with Vancouver against Boston?

Here's the video of the fight. Looks like a real barnburner.

Canadians looking like a bunch of sore losers for the second year in a row.
