Hahaha, this is awesome. Red Wings fans are so dedicated to winning (just like the team itself) that they want to play the strategic move and pull their players from the ASG to rest. I love this place.
Pretty sad isn't it? As if so many players perenially get injured in the ASG.
How are our superstars any more precious than other teams, who routinely send their best players if they're healthy?
I agree the game has many flaws, but it's still special to these players and to the fans who want to see the event or attend it.
It would be a special thing for him and for the Wings to have him in the ASG. He's not the only goalie in the league who plays a lot that would potentially play in the ASG. Let him play. It'll be fun.
It's a chance to be in the same building as the best players in the league. Also, there's plenty of players who'll never get that chance and would give anything to play in the ASG. Can't take that for granted.
It's amazing that these soft Wings are able to score one goal, let alone 6. Terrible. /GMR.
Are you competing with Crymson for who can be a better troll?
My concerns are long term playoff ones, not some regular season crap games here and there. We blew out plenty of teams last year too. We've also been blown out this year in some games. It's an 82 game season.
So a spotpicker is someone who likes to take fights with non-fighters too much of the time? Huh.
I thought a spotpicker, or at least part of being a spotpicker, is say Backes, or a top six capable fighter and power forward in general, turning down a fight with a pure enforcer because he'd rather be on the ice or because his team needs him to be on the ice?
Well, if he fights lots of non-fighters and turns down fights with tougher guys, then yes, he is a spotpicker.
