#2374625 Wings Make Offer to Danny D!

Posted by T.Low on 27 March 2013 - 12:54 PM

Without getting into a politcal debate, the President may not get paid a base salary as much as Cory, ie however he get's many more perks paid for by the taxpayers.


I was making the obvious point that even a low level guy like Emmerton makes more moey than he could possibly make dong anything else.  After 5 -10 yrs of making a few million a year, I could certainly retire to a womderful life and fill it full of growth and development. 

Not sure where you were trying to go with your post.  Maybe Obama is too polarizing of a figure for me to have referenced.

Carmen is spot on.  I went to UM and got an Econ Major, Poli Sci Minor because I wanted to learn how the world works.   The Econ material was educational, but the Political Science was pure unadulterated indoctrination as oppossed to growth and development.


Yes, the NHL is a major committment with major scrifice, but so is everything that comes with that pay scale.  Cory Emmerton is getting paid more than the President of the United States of America.

Absolutely and the proof is in the pudding. I'm sorry but there is zero percent chance Larry Murphy taped that Nashville intro while under the influence, yet he still was rambling, mumbling, and falling over his own words. He simply just had a little trouble getting what he wanted out sometimes. I can do the same thing time to time, I can understand this. Anyone does. He just did it at a more accelerated rate which makes me think he actually had a problem. I don't think awkwardness played a huge role, but it could have been influential. He did play professional hockey in front of millions, and has been on the air for over 10 years now, I can't say he still has the jitters being in-front of the camera.


I think the biggest thing is what VM just said. I would HATE for these rumors to get into the media and run rampant.  




Personally, this is exactly part of the appeal of Larry Murphy;  he's an NHL veteran, not a polished broadcaster.  He knows hockey and has real observations and real comments and doesn't necessarily care how things look or sound to people.  Thats what I want in my Red Wings TV experience.

There is already a big void when Mickey makes a laughing inside joke type remark...about officiating or old time hockey, or whatever...murph was always a great sidekick, always there to add to Mickey's line of thinking...making it even more funny...now it's a one and done comment as Daniels continues to call the play by play without commenting...


There's obviously more to the story than we know.

Someone started an online petition, not sure how much weight these things carry but here you go:





Thanks  Signed.

Will they replace Murph with some serious eye candy? 



I like babes as much as the next guy, if not more, but I don't lke eye candy that is there for the sole purpose of being eye candy fluff.  I'd rather listen to Murph talk about the game I'm watching than listen to Eva Menendez read the script that some else wrote for her while trying to lok like she actally knows what she's talking about


I like Mickey and Murph because they are a coupe of veterans talkng hockey and don't follw the same ESPN sports guy formula.  The Wings experience is all about nostalgia, and he is an integral part of it.


Edit: The ratings are tanking because of the product on the ice:  I was dreading watching the Anaheim game all day long because I could not bear to watch them play half hearted and get destroyed by frikin Anaheim.  (Luckily, I decided to have the game on while I did other things, but you get the point).

Tatar should have gone to the shootout instead of Zetterberg.



#2363493 Thoughts on the Blackhawks

Posted by T.Low on 02 March 2013 - 07:03 PM

This thread should be called "The Core"...they are kicking some record setting ass.  Hopefully, we'll show up and make a game out of it.  Anything less than our all, they'll mop the ice with us.


Sure would be sweet to beat 'em.

#2363483 Milbury rips Ovechkin

Posted by T.Low on 02 March 2013 - 05:25 PM

Luongo & Raymond for Ovechkin.  Put him on the Sedin line and watch history be made...for a season or two anyway.



Edit:  And in Vancouver, his diving won't stand out as much.

#2363443 Do We Really Need a New Stadium?

Posted by T.Low on 02 March 2013 - 01:03 PM

I'm a sucker for history, so I wish they'd keep it.  There's plenty of sporting venues around the world that have been around since the beginning of the last century.  


The JLA isn't even close to the age those buildings are.  


Seriously, i wish they'd have stayed at Olympia.  but I'm quirky like that.

You mean kinda like at the beginning of this?



Zackly!  It happens once every few games.  Mostly it's guys jumping up into the boards to soften the blow.

Posted by T.Low on 27 February 2013 - 11:20 AM

God I really miss when ESPN had the NHL broadcasting rights.


I HATE Mike "DRIVE" Emrick and Ed Olczyk with a passion. I want Gary Thorne and Bill Clemente back. :cry:



This is the only thing I've ever seen you post that I disagree with.  I like "...a DRIVE...".  Like the enthusiasm, especially after having to listen to Major Homers Greg Husum and John Shorty Shorthouse all the time.


I wish I could hit "ignore" on my Yamaha sound system for Olczk, though.

Mickey was right when he siad Toots knows his job and not letting Big Rig break a hand or something and risk injury in a fight.  Imagine Ericsson out for a month after that fight.
