#2310148 Shanahan snubbed from HoF induction

Posted by Uncle Danny on 26 June 2012 - 04:35 PM

How the hell does Shanny get left out but Joe Sack-Lick makes it in?


You must be joking. Shanny should've definitely made this list... but of all of them, I'd say only Sakic is a no-brainer not to replace. As others have stated, Sundin is the question mark here.

Bure had more talent, but a career ended short.
Oates was amazing, but never won a cup.

Sakic captained a team that won cups, contended for scoring trophies until very late in his career, defined the word class on the ice and off. I'm truly shocked at your naming him here. I'm a Red Wings fan through and through, but if Joe Sakic isn't a first ballotter, I don't know who is.

Best of luck to Brad....except when he's playing Detroit. :sly:


Agreed. I hope no idiots boo him when he comes to town in his new sweater.

#2304584 Red Wings Next Captain

Posted by Uncle Danny on 01 June 2012 - 12:10 PM

I'm kind of annoyed because I just got a Zett jersey a few months ago with an "A" on it and I think you are absolutely right here. He's probably gonna be our next captain and my 4 month old jersey is already obsolete like my computer was a week after I got it.


No way, man! That makes it all the cooler down the road. I still have my Fedorov jersey with the A on it, and love it as a bit of a rarity. Shows I was around "back then." Wear that sucker with pride even after Z takes the C :)

That's pretty fantastic, no pun intended. Of course I'd question anyone who took advantage of this promotion, but I still think it's a great idea. Despite the fact that I hope we freaking destroy you in the playoffs, I have to give a continued hat off to the Preds organization. You guys do more with less than anyone else in the NHL. Unless you're playing the red and white, I'm rooting for you.

#2278920 Tortorella Slams Orpik, Crosby, Malkin,...

Posted by Uncle Danny on 06 April 2012 - 03:32 PM

I'll do it again...

Watch this:

"I don't know how Orpik doesn't get more suspension time." and "I hope Philly rams Crosby and knocks him out of the playoffs."

I don't like Crosby, never have. No I am not jealous, since I think Datsyuk is a better player. Crosby is on his last leg anyways, and Bettman, who has thrown everything the NHL has to offer behind Crosby, knows it. So, they'll do their best to protect him.

But, once you start having concussions, you're very likely to have more. Crosby's career is already in jeopardy and it won't take a dirty hit to knock him out.

This is what the league wanted by changing the rules and bringing in the instigator rule. Nobody to blame but themselves...


And the fact that you're wishing a potentially career ending and life changing injury on another human being doesn't even enter the equation?


#2278914 Tortorella Slams Orpik, Crosby, Malkin,...

Posted by Uncle Danny on 06 April 2012 - 03:03 PM

You know what, I LOVE TORTORELLA. HAHA. Nice. It validates wings fans since 2008 calling Crosby a whiner. Other team fans didn't agree, now they should be more convinced of it. I love it...

I hope Philly rams Crosby and knocks him out of the playoffs. Despite the talent, he's a moron. Of course, I am hoping for a clean hit...sorta ;).

So I just watched the hit by Orpik. How is that defendable in any way whatsoever? The guy LEAD with his knee...unbelievable. I don't know how Orpik doesn't get more suspension time. Torts was right, absolutely ridiculous.

I'd be pissed if I was the coach, too.


I'm trying to figure out how you can say "I don't know how Orpik doesn't get more suspension time." and "I hope Philly rams Crosby and knocks him out of the playoffs." in the same post.

You mean like, Mike noballs Milbury? Frickin spineless s***head.


There are a great many insults that can be slung in Milbury's direction, but I don't think a lack of chutzpah is among them. If you doubt me, I dare you to call him spineless to his face.


#2278259 Milbury slams Blysma and Crosby

Posted by Uncle Danny on 05 April 2012 - 01:00 PM

Milbury doesn't work for the NHL so they can't fine him. And I haven't seen anything that leads me to believe that Bettman told him to apologize.

Most likely someone at NBC told him that, true as it may be, they thought he went too far. Or maybe Milbury decided it on his own? Though that seems highly unlikely.


Yeah. I doubt the NHL was involved at the league level at all. More likely it was NBC telling him to tone it back. Keep in mind that, even if the NHL doesn't say anything, the Pens can tell NBC that they're going to restrict access to certain stars if that's the type of coverage they're going to get. I'm not insinuating that this was Crosby getting any different treatment than any other star player, mind you. But if a team tells their broadcasting partner that they'll no longer have the level of lockerroom or personal interest story access they're accustomed to because of disparaging remarks made by one of their analysts, the network is more than likely to apply a muzzle and an apology.

Kudos to Milbury for speaking his mind (I happen to agree with him), and I don't think any less of him for backing down some when it's almost a certainty that his check signers told him "that was a no no."

#2264193 Post-TDT: Red Wings stand pat, no additions

Posted by Uncle Danny on 27 February 2012 - 05:17 PM

...but alas, that is what he said it was banked up for, that is why he didn't go for a larger UFA last July...how many times you going to listen to his garbage and rhetoric?

He will not get Parise or Suter over the summer. He will not trade for Nash or anyone. He will draft small skilled forwards. He will tell us that "We kicked the tires, made some inquiries, but in the end we felt there wasn't anyone out there that would help our team..." God DAMN I am tired of hearing it! Overpay, just once Holland, show your team that you WANT TOf****** WIN! Your team is so inconsistent that they are going to lose 1st in the central, they may even get passed by Nashville too! You cannot win on the road, your powerplay is horrendous, now your home play has gotten abysmal, even the last three wins there were nothing to write home about...I am even betting that they lose in Columbus tomorrow...99% sure.

Get ready: Bertuzzi, Hudler, Helm, Quincey & Abdelkader are going to be his signing's. Same team, same result. f*** I am pissed!



Dude, you should seriously consider unplugging and getting a spa treatment come UFA day this summer. From what I've seen today and last July, you're going to blow a vessel one of these deadlines.

I don't get why so many people keep bringing up our cap space as a reason that a move should've been made. I didn't see many salary dumps today, did anyone else? It's not as if we could walk into the CBJ offices and say "Hey there, fella. Let me take Nash's cap hit off your hands, and here, I'll throw in an Emmerton. We've got plenty of cap wiggle room." That cap space is only useful in two scenarios: 1) a seller wants to dump salary (didn't happen today) or 2) we use it to pick up a high priced R/UFA in the offseason.

Would I have liked to see some movement in Detroit today? Sure, who wouldn't have? But the prices being asked in terms of picks were just way beyond what the assets being delivered were worth. The cap space we have available was a complete non-factor.
