#2438281 will you tank red wings games due to the cleary signing

Posted by T.Low on 22 September 2013 - 03:24 PM

i saw this thread on HFboards a few days ago. someone asked if any wings fan would give up on buying tickets to the games due to the cleary signing, and some posters said they'd downright not watch games on television anymore. 
 
i'm just curious, will anyone here tank the games this year? i personally will watch the games but probably won't attend one.



I'm about ready to tank LGW for threads like this.


#2438053 Burke Wins Default Judgment Against Internet Defamers

That's pretty serious defamation.  Good for Burke to sue and win.

 

Thread title is totally misleading.

Tatar is worthy of a serious look with D and Z.


#2436348 Torts on Twitter: "most narcissistic thing I have ever seen"

Posted by T.Low on 12 September 2013 - 07:01 PM

I heard the interview on Vancouver's team 1040. Wasn't that big of a deal. He said Twitter has its place; he and his wife organize a charity dog walk that brings in a lot of money for Humane Society. He said Twitter was great promoting the event.

All he really said was that of course what goes on in the locker room stays in the locker room and not on Twitter.

Narcissistic comment was when pro athletes feel the need to tweet" eating a roast beef sandwich then I'm going to the bathroom", and that was actually pretty damn funny.

So far the Vancouver media thinks he's awesome. He has given some excellent interviews with a lot of hockey insight.


#2436133 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by T.Low on 12 September 2013 - 11:28 AM

I wish I could fly to Traverse City and shake Dan Cleary's hand.

 

 In this day and age of pro athletes chasing the Big $ at all costs, the guy walked away from millions of dollars, put his ego aside, crawled back to the negotiation table to eat some major crow, all so he could stay with friends,  teammates, and an organisation and town that he loves.

 

Cleary went toe to toe with one of Detroit's all time biggest nemesis, Chris Pronger, he went after Dion Phaneuf, knocking him silly, then getting an assist on the goal. He's scored numerous playoff game winning goals.  Even when he's basically duck taped together, he's still finishing checks and jumping into scrums. He is a winner, he is the epitome of a team heart and soul guy, he has hands, grit, and smarts.  He is a major contributor at all costs.

 

$1.75m!  Talk about a Hometown Discount!  

 

Totally glad he's back. And frankly, I can't see him really giving a s*** what number is on his jersey, as long as the logo is the Winged Wheel.

I hate them also.  They dive and I don't like their faces.  
 
Why does hate have to be rational?

Be fun to see them switch Mantha for Franz en in that lineup for a few shifts, number one just to see how he does and number two to send a wee bit of a message. Ha ha ha

Pronger will be very happy to see his old friend Cleary.

but there is no denying that he was a warrior on the ice, and always left it all on the ice.




Apparently there is some denying, I saw it on the other thread.

Zetterberg- Datsyuk- Bertuzzi
Franzen- Weiss- Alfie
Nyquist- Anderson- Tatar
Abby- Helm-Miller/Eaves/Sammy
 
Kronners- Ericsson
Dekeyser- Smith
Kindl- Quincy
 
 
- I think this will make the team as balanced as possible. 
- Bert, as long as he is healthy, is better than Abby on the top line with Pavs and Hank. Bert is a bigger body, and is able to create more space for the Eurotwins. Also, Bert is a very good passer, and can contribute with goals. 2nd!!



With Berts vision and passing skills and the attention he still commands on the ice I can see Hank having a great year production wise with he and Datsyuk.

  I agree however Dats was too small for a while too, I see a lot of similarities in Dats and Nyquist so I feel his size will soon come....
 
     ... I still feel Datsyuk Zetterberg Nyquist .is a "secret weapon" line that would 100% bewilder whomever the opposing line happens to be.  



Like I said, Nyquist could be a great addition to z & D for certain matchups. But during the playoffs Nyquist would probably get bumped for a more physical player like Abby or Healthy Bert, Similar to Saad getting bumped for Bickell

All I can say at this point is how awesomely entertaining would Zetterberg Datsyuk Nyquist--------->#

Versus certain matchups you are right, it would be a lot of fun to watch. With other matchups Abby may work better, and other matchups still, Bert or even Mule may be the best option

This roster certainly has its fair share of options.

One option I'd like to see would be Mule Weise Bert. That line had it's moments in the past with Filapoola, like to try it with the new guy.

Not to mention that line could then leave Z D Alf as the other top line.

Z D Alf

Mule Weise Bert

Tatar Anderson NyQ

Abby Helm Eaves
