#2573881 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 23 February 2015 - 09:15 PM

 

I think you're a reasonable guy.  I've talked to you before and have no reason to think you're a fool.  I do, however, think that you (and other pro-fighting types) keep struggling to find reasons to validate fighting because if you don't find one sooner or later, you'll be forced to come to terms with the fact that something you find really enjoyable A) doesn't have any impact on the sport whatsoever, and B) is really, REALLY,f****** people's lives up. 

 

Fighting doesn't have any impact on the sport? March 26, 1997 called to disagree.

 

"This is a game that brought the Red Wings together," said Vernon, who picked up his 300th career win. "Whether it was the first-period fighting or the overtime goal, a game like this only helps give you confidence to go into the playoffs. When you go to the playoffs, everybody has to be ready to do the job and stay together. Tonight showed the guys were willing to pay the price."

"Certainly, I think that was the turning point as far as the Red Wings' success went. Up until that point, the Red Wings were close, but never tasted victory, and by that I mean Stanley Cup victory."

"After postseason heartbreaks in 1994, '95 and '96, the Red Wings finally developed a swagger on March 26, 1997, one that would carry them to three championships in six seasons."

#2572697 TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 20 February 2015 - 08:14 PM

To me this is exactly the problem.  Holland appears to be briliant because a few of the talking heads identify that "this is the year the Wings don't make the play offs" and his teams continue to make the playoffs. 

 

That said he builds the best teams and better than anybody else that relies virtually entirely on the draft.  He builds a skilled, determined team with guys that have character.  Holland has always gotten the most of the draft.  But just making the playoffs every year is bad when it becomes obvious that your team is not built for the playoffs & when you autopsy the season and look at everything the forwards have to do defensively because the D us under served it is not favorable.  This is where we are at.  FA's think we are too far away so guys that Holland is willing to overpay a bit go to Washington; or they take less than Holland was going to pay to go to pitsburg or with the exception of Danny who is from the area and played with Nill's kid and was brought to the Joe his whole adult life to meet Nick & walk through the dressing room they choose to go to Edmonton (Shultz, whome the Wings wanted).... when  your number 2 D (is number 2), and you don't address this players take note.  When you are unsuccessful in over 6 years to bring in a guy to help the team & to steward the tallented guys coming up it is a failure. 

 

Who cares about making the playoffs every year if it handcufs your ability to assume risk where it is meaningful.  Legwand was not meaningful.  I don't see anything meaningful this year & I don't hold him accountable for that.  What I hold him accountable for is failing 6 years in a row to supliment his skilled drafting and player development. 

 

 

Guess you missed the memo about retooling instead of a rebuild. And the retool finally seems to paying off.

 

Guess he also missed the memo on the Wings management caring about making the playoffs. Clearly it's a priority to them.

Hopefully it doesn't mess with his confidence, the skill is clearly there.

 

Is it? Other than size, what are people seeing in game from him?




#2564143 1/17 GDT : Predators 2 at Red Wings 5

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 17 January 2015 - 11:02 PM

Smith has been so good lately

 

 

Brendan smith isf****** terrible. Is anyone watching this knucklehead?

 

 

Rough shift for Smith. 

 

Late to the party, I know, but I'm still amused at how differently different people watch the same game.




#2563300 Brodeur retires. Named Sr. Advisor to Blues GM

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 14 January 2015 - 11:20 PM

Guy should play for as long as someone is willing to pay him. It's his life and career. Five years after he retires, 10 years, no one will remember that he "held on too long." He'll be remembered for a brilliant career.

1 5on5 goal in 4 games and counting.

 

You've turned into Fat Guy in a Maltby Jersey.




#2555265 Jonathan Bernier - Nelson Mandela Comments

Someone uploaded the interview to YouTube.

Sooooooo painful to watch.

 

Before opening his mouth, didn't Bernier's hairstyle give away his general lack of awareness?




#2553754 Alfredsson Set to Sign 1-day Contract with Senators

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 04 December 2014 - 04:27 PM

I have so much respect for Alfie, the guy doesn't hang on like Marty or Jaromir he actually listens to his body.

 

Jagr scored 24-43-67 last year. I'm pretty sure his body is telling him to put the puck in the net and the check in the bank. Good call, Jaromir.

 

I have so much respect for players who play as long as they want not how long "fans" think they should play.

I'd be pretty disgruntled after not having won a Cup since 1967.

Some people always think the grass is greener. In the NHL, that means blindly assuming every rookie/prospect is better than the devil you know.




#2548581 Ranking Wings Players by Draft Order

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 11 November 2014 - 03:28 PM

The player that stands out to me is Nyquist. We all know Z and Dats were drafted late. Old news (but still incredible finds!). Goose, though, is showing more and more promise. I was initially a skeptic because of his (lack of) size, but he has been consistently scoring in the NHL for a year and some of his moves are downright Datsyuk-ian. Great pick at #121!

I think Ozzie is trying to hard to be "professional" when he should relax and be more himself. I don't care if he's exceptionally polished; entertain me. Isn't he supposed to be a real character and prankster?
