#2532885 Jim Paek leaves Griffs to help run Korean Hockey

Posted by GMRwings1983 on Yesterday, 12:29 PM

We're so bad, that people would rather go to North Korea than work with the Wings.

 

:scared:

 

 

Didn't you know? The Redwings org has lost its shine. no one wants to be here anymore. It's only a matter of time before the fans start leaving.

In the last two years, the organization has lost:

Paek

Anastas

Renney

Peters

Nill

McDonald

Leach

 

Do other organizations have this much turnover?  It might be totally normal, I've just never thought to follow it until now.  Seems like a lot of high profile personnel to lose in a short span.

Someone please resurrect the "player formerly known as Steve" post, I beg you. One of my all time faves.

 

You mean this one?

It looks like Yellow Mustard is going to miss some time after catching that elbow last night against the Sabres. Its really bad timing too, because our defense already thin with Big Poppa out with a concussion and Bandit serving his 5 game suspension. I would say this forces us to call up someone from GR, most likely Billy the Kid or The Player Formerly Known As Steve. We might be in trouble on the back end until we get some regulars back, since this leaves the Boogeyman as our #1 defenseman. And you know what that means!!!!

 

Boogeyman - Hot Topic

Heebie Jeebies - Dances with Wolves

My Little Pony - Agent Orange

I thought his nickname was "Big Daddy Cool", or was it the "1-2-3 Kid"?  I can never keep his nicknames straight.

Actually it's pretty well known he was one of the biggest whiners. Some people just get caught drinking te cool aid of their team and don't always see things like this.

Ask penguins fans about Crosby sometime LOL.

#2532195 Red Wings & the Media

Posted by frankgrimes on 15 July 2014 - 07:24 PM

I consider myself a big fan of the Red Wings but knowledgable - like this blogger is pushing it - would put it way too far. Anyway, after reading news how the Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Philadelphia and Boston are handling their players I can understand why organisations don't want to give too much out.

 

The only point I somewhat agree is that the team and especially management aren't taking critics very well, as proven by an Email from a poster here a few days ago.

 

But the media has to understand one thing: The job of a hockey organisation is to ice the best possible roster, players are paid to perform on the ice not to be media-monkeys.  Putting myself into Kessel's shoes I would have declined every interview with a Torontosun reporter till they are accepting that I'm shy and don#t want to talk to them, till then no comments no interviews.

 

Sometimes the media thinks they are way more important when in reality they aren't even important.

 

btw. for the 24/7 stuff the media considered it "boring" boohoo down to earth hockey players acting like always, so no forced stories or Bryzgalovs quotes for you ? Cry me a river, I thought the insight about Babcocks decisions and how he reacts to pressure have been outstanding.

#2532066 Favorite Dan Cleary Moment or Play

Posted by VM1138 on 14 July 2014 - 05:22 PM

 

That will probably win, but I like to forget anything that happened in those playoffs.  

 

Cleary was awful in the 2008 playoffs, but the Wings won the Cup.  In 2009, he was brilliant and scored a lot, but the Wings lost and he missed that crucial breakaway at the end of game 6 against the Pens.  

 

2007 is a better memory, because the team vindicated itself after choking in the playoffs in 2003, 2004 and 2006.  Losing to Anaheim on a deflection sucked, and I still feel we'd have won the Cup if not for that play, but overall, that playoff feels better.  Also likely because we won the Cup the following year.  2009 still stings because the Wings haven't won anything since then.

 

Man, those post lockout years were (almost) magnificent.  2006, favorites for the Cup. Sure, they choked big time, but they were still overwhelming favorites and won a ridiculous amount of games.  In '07 they shed the choke reputation and were so close to the finals.  '08 was a Cup win, '09 was a Game 7 final that we played with one hand behind our back and still almost won.

 

2010 had so much promise, and then the injury parade started, and mixed with retirements we haven't been the same since.

#2532026 Favorite Dan Cleary Moment or Play

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 14 July 2014 - 01:54 PM

I figured there's not enough Dan Cleary threads around, so we should have another one  Quite simply, what was your favorite Dan Cleary moment or play?

 

For me, there's always been one answer, and it is the penalty shot goal he scored on Kiprusoff in game 5 of the 2007 WCQF.  

 

If you remember, the Wings had choked in the playoffs the previous three seasons, as a higher seed playing against a lesser seed.  The season before, we had been embarrassed by an 8 seeded Edmonton team.  Once again, in 2007, the Wings were the top seed heading into the postseason.  We beat Calgary the first two games at home, but they tied it at 2-2 in Calgary.  Coming back home, everyone thought the Wings were on their way to another choke against an 8 seed.  There was a lot of tension and panic around (and I wasn't even on LGW then).  

 

The game was 0-0 in the 2nd period, until Cleary got a penalty shot.  This is what happened next.  

 

 

 

We went on to win that game comfortably and the next game in double OT, and went to the WCF.  It's technically not the biggest goal he scored for the Wings (the one against Anaheim was), but the Wings needed that goal, because we might have been facing another choke job in the first round and a possible dismantling of the team.  It was also a great move against a top goalie.    

 

What's your favorite Cleary play?

Holland on looking for a D trade:

 

"I don't know that what's out there is any better than what we got in our system," Holland said. "Players (free agents) would be more experienced, but are they any better than (Ryan) Sproul or (Xavier) Ouellet? We got pretty good kids."

 

THEN LET THEM PLAY YOUf****** IMBECILE!!!
