#2607775 Breaking News: Gordie Howe Int'l Bridge

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 May 2015 - 04:59 PM

This got me thinking about how sad it will be when the arena with the coolest arena name in sports is replaced with some corporate garbage name.

Jason Woolley International Bridge has a cooler sound to it, but I understand why they went with Gordie.

It really wasn't anything like Kronwall's hit. He didnt leave his feet at all, and he got him with his tricep. Kerry Fraser break's it down in this article:

Apparently, Mike Milbury (who once beat a fan with a shoe) thought it was a dirty hit.

That's what is coming out of Edmonton ... I love it!  Sorry Mikey, no McConnor for you.

What are the chances that franchise would have a "major collapse"?

It's going to be awesome when he trolls everyone and signs with a KHL team.

 

And takes Datsyuk with him.  Whatever team Kovalchuk is on maybe.

Wouldn't bother me one bit if he did.

 

IMHO - Stevie has earned the right for some success outside of the Red Wings organization.

 

This organization wanted him to "overripe" before taking over Holland.

 

Guess we waited too long.

That's how you take care of business when up 3-2 at home.

So much parity now in the playoffs, that being up 3-0 or 3-1 in a series doesn't mean anything anymore.

Not saying your wrong, it's your opinion. However, if you took a poll, sorry but 6-8 players on your list aren't above Kronner.

 

A poll on this forum, maybe.  How about a poll of forums around the league?  That would be more unbiased.  




#2606680 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 08 May 2015 - 08:15 AM

3 years, maybe you could say 4 if you want to stretch a bit. Some might even say 2. Some might even say it's just prep work for the real rebuild that won't truly start until Pav and Hank are gone. We were still one of the best teams in the league in 09-10 and 10-11. Only slipped a little in 11-12.

 

That's a scary thought, but that's likely the correct answer.

Kind of surprised that it could be 4-0 ... a real possibility.  Oh well, more butt hurt that we didn't take care of business when we were up 3-2 cuz Montreal could have been an easy out.  

 

As I said in previous pages, how do you know Montreal would have been an easy way out?  We don't score goals like Tampa Bay can.  And we didn't own Montreal and Price the way Tampa Bay did in the regular season. Other way around, in fact.  

 

I just wanted to watch two more weeks of playoff hockey and witness an original 6 matchup. That's what I'm most butt hurt about.

Agreed. I f****ing hate Johnson. I mean, it's not Patrick Kane-type hate. Not by a long shot. But I'd love to see him get lined up and dropped by some of the Caps.

 

I'd love to see Brian McGrattan do unpleasant things to that punk in a closet.

I would love to see the wings get/develop someone into a wayne simmonds type of player. That would work wonders for this team. 

 

If only there were some way we could just trade for him but that's highly doubtful of course.

 

Does Philly still want Dan Cleary or has that ship sailed?

I can't believe the NHL would let this team from Florida knock off two original 6 teams.  I guess only the NBA and NFL care about ratings.
