#2431210 Five Hole For Food

Posted by MCleveland89 on 22 July 2013 - 06:54 PM

Saw this video over at Puck Daddy and thought it was an awesome idea. Play hockey and raise food? Why not!

But it's already over. Now I'm wondering if there is anything like this in the United States, specifically in the Michigan area. Does anyone know of any?

I've been emailing Richard from Five Hole For Food about bringing it to Michigan. I talked to the person who runs your Facebook and they told me to email him directly.

How about we start putting a little more context in the thread title, eh?

 

Anyways, Alain Vigneault might be able to turn this around for them. Sometimes all you need is a change.

#2428085 Wings Attempting to Re-sign Cleary

Posted by Aznknight on 06 July 2013 - 03:24 PM

He's a warrior. Teams wanted him for a reason. He brings alot to the table.
He gets under the opposing team's skin.
He will protect his teammates
He sacrifices his body for the team
Great leader
Heart of a champion.

All attributes that most superstars lack.

#2417387 Datsyuk: I want to sign extension with Wings this summer

Posted by evilzyme on 03 June 2013 - 04:26 PM

The same people call Holland dumb every off season when he makes the same canned statement.

 

"The player has an agent and they may want to test the market, we will make what we think is a fair offer and see how it goes from there. But the player and the agent have to make a decision this probably won't be quick."

 

Go back to last off season or the one before that and tell me the same things weren't said about Abby, Miller, Kronwall etc...

 

Why get upset, it is Holland's canned speech that he gives for all free agent Wings.

 

Do you think behind closed doors he and dats aren't already close to a deal, he was really just letting people know this may not be quick.

 

But the Holland haters are gonna hate no matter what! Look no further than the grief he gets over not getting Suter, even though Suter chose Minnesota for reasons not related to the offer given!

 

 

 

EDIT:

OH look, now he is saying he wants to sign Dats as soon as July 5th!

 

http://sports.yahoo....39700--nhl.html

 

From Article:

 

 

Lids is a once in a lifetime player, I love Pavel but he is not Lids or Stevie Y, and neither is Z for that matter.

 

I also said Kronwall which you left out, in his contract discussion Holland said the same thing.

 

He said the same thing when Z was up, it is the canned answer for everyone that is not a once in a lifetime player.

 

My point, that is Holland's canned answer, he gives that answer to the media every June!

 

I'll try to hit on all of these. Firstly, he didn't just say the player has an agent and may want to test the market. Pasha has already stated if he's playing in the NHL it's going to be Detroit, and he's the one sitting here saying he wants a contract. Different story. Holland says this;

 

Holland said it was "very important" to re-sign Datsyuk but noted that "he's got options, too.

 

No, I don't think they are very close because they haven't talked contracts during this whole season. Holland has said all season that he's met with Pasha's agent once and they said they would discuss everyone before he left for Russia during the off season. I think the majority of the hate towards that comment is that you shouldn't have to say, "I got other options" towards one of your alternative captains, none the less a generational talent that has given you everything he has. 

 

I don't know where you're getting the "It's just the Holland haters finding anything and everything!!!" It's a dumb comment to say, especially publicly to the media. All he should've and could've said was exactly what you stated, "we'll see how everything goes, but obviously this is our main priority in having him around here for more years because of everything he's done. we'll sit down and make sure the contract makes sense for both Pavel and the franchise in the future." And no, i'm the furthest from a Holland hater, i'm normally the one defending him around here, it's just that you don't say that towards a core player and someone whom is regarded as an alternative captain for your team.

 

As for your article stating he wants a deal done by July 5th, it was published the same day as the freep and MLive articles. It's just a journalist excluding quotes and stating what he believes himself. Every quote from the same day out of Hollands mouth didn't say anything about getting it done asap on July 5th.

 

Now mind you, all of this can be taken out of context and Holland could be speaking on behalf of Pasha having options. The problem I have with that is; (1) you have your star player asking to get more years with the franchise (2) he's stated that the only NHL team he'll play for is Detroit or he'll go to the KHL.

As for Lidstrom being a generational one of a kind, but Pavel not? It just doesn't make sense to me. Lidstrom played unreal defense and contributed offensively while excelling at both. Pavel is one of the best playmakers in the game, the slickest hands the league has seen, and regarded as one of the best 2-way players to play the game. You can't replace Pavel, he's a one of a kind. They're both generational talents and to say one is while the other isn't just doesn't make sense to me.
