1983 was a bad year


Bulls***.

Scarface came out that year.
Metallica had their first album.
Steve Yzerman joined the Wings.
I was born.


Best year ever! :thumbup:

Go Enforcer Groupies!


We always win these "enforcer" thread arguments.

The anti-enforcer slappies need to give it up already.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 02 October 2010 - 08:13 PM

Too old.


Datsyuk as always not showing enough emotion. Barely notice him.


Also, Ericsson has been awf......oh wait nevermind, he actually is playing tonight.

I blame Lidstrom for this whole debacle.

He's been totally invisible tonight.

Amazing how good Phaneuf looks when he's playing against Maltby and Miller, instead of Pavel and Hank.

What a defensive plug he is.

ericcson getting all the blame on that goal when lashoff was right there too


We've already chosen Ericsson as our whipping boy.

Too late to change it now.

I want to see Ericsson redeem himself by dropping that fool Colton Orr.

Ericsson is such af****** pylon. :ranting:

He made Grabovski look like Mario Lemieux out there.

#2038872 Wings release Aaron Downey

As I'm sure you're well aware, "nearly every team" wins the Stanley Cup every year, so it's certainly due to enforcers.


It's not.

I'm just refuting the arguments people make about how enforcers are obsolete nowadays, despite the fact that just about every team has a pure goon that doesn't have much skill, and takes playing time away from those in the minors with more talent. The Wings did the same with May and Downey in recent history.

Apparently, some of posters here think they're smarter than most GM's in the NHL on this issue.

Goodf****** riddance.

8 pages on the release of Downey? He was a crappy hockey player and a mediocre enforcer on a puck possession team... We have no need for a player like him. I'm glad he is not wasting valuable ice time that a younger player could use.


Anti-enforcer post alert. :siren:



BTW, to add to your list, Downey was a horrible person who punched babies and strangled elderly women.

How come when we had enforcers on our team, no one was starting threads like "OMG, we need to get rid of Downey and May because they can't score"?

Now that we don't have any tough guys, everyone raves about how insignificant those players are to the team. At least be consistent people, instead of resorting to hypocrisy.


#2037886 Ericsson on notice?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 29 September 2010 - 12:18 PM

Ericsson is a big guy with no physicality. Like Uwe Krupp, Maxim Kuznetsov and Yan Golubovsky.

He still remains to be proven, unlike those guys, but that's what he looks like so far. Just a big, soft jellyfish.

I'm sorry I don't agree with this boards rationale that Bettman sux and the NHL does nothing right because they pay more attention to big baby Crosby than our stars.

The whining about him has gotten borderline ridiculous.


I never started this thread to promote our stars over Crosby.

I was merely saying that the league needs to market other stars around the NHL. If that happens to include Hank or Pavel, than that's fine. I was thinking more of guys like Stamkos, Miller, Parise, Lecavalier.

Also, I included Ovechkin in there with Crosby, but no one seems to talk about him.

Sounds like Doc has been hired as Bettman's publicist.

Oh and I'm so glad this didn't turn into another Crosby thread. <_<
