#2531196 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by roboturner on 10 July 2014 - 04:47 PM


This same article also has Holland saying Cleary will have to beat out other players to be in the lineup. But lets ignore that because it isn;t in line with Holland bashing.

Get with it man, we all know by now that's not how it works with Holland and Babs. They say s*** like this and then do the opposite. Standard Procedure.

"I don't know why they're not coming here"


This is why, Ken. This is why.

#2517414 A plea to Holland.

I understand that the kids didn't do much this postseason, but neither did the likes of Cleary (this was supposed to be his time to shine), Sammy, Tootoo, Bert (did contribute a single screen though).

I do like the sound of having a select few capable vets, though I wouldn't get too carried away there either. Capable vets can quickly turn into useless vets of the aforementioned variety.

Yes. Of course. No coach in their rightf****** mind would want to come here and play for Holland. Why would anyone want to do that? No one resects the Wings organization and their lack of repeated success. All the good coaches want to go to model franchises like Toronto and Vancouver. 

We're gonna turn into Toronto or Vancouver pretty soon if Holland doesn't cut thef****** bulls***


Was Holland supposed to decline the job because it was too good? I'll give you Bowman but Bryan Murray? c'mon . Sometimes the hardest jobs to do are when the expectations are as high as they are in Detroit.  We've won a cup with him as GM and never missed the playoffs.  If you don't like the guy that's fine but to strip the guy of any credit for anything he's done here is ignorant and well timed considering we just lost a game.

Pretending that he's not responsible for the poor personnel decisions made since that last cup is also pretty ignorant....

I don't really see a whole lot of 'blaming only Howard' for this loss like some are claiming. It's more holding him accountable for his mistakes.


If you're going to say that "other people shouldn't be blaming only one person (Howie), because the team as a whole is playing poorly and you're letting them off the hook."

Then you shouldn't turn around and say "the whole team isn't playing well, but I'm going to let Howard off the hook for his own contributions to this debacle and hold all of the skaters to a higher standard."


You're doing the exact same thing. There's plenty of blame to go around and EVERYBODY (skaters, goalie, coaches, GM) should be held responsible for their parts in this.

When you're an underdog you also can't get into a penalty war and go 2/4 on the kill and 0/4 on the PP.  Blame can't fall only on Jimmy.  I'm not trying to say he had a strong game, because he didn't, but nor did anyone else really (besides Datsyuk).

I wasn't blaming it only on Jimmy, like I said, we probably would have lost regardless (that's on the whole team), and that everybody has to be playing their best right now. But seeing as how the goalie, regardless of who it is, is the last line of defense, they can't be making the same stupid mistakes as everybody else. Especially if they are going to leave the net wide open and then make a boneheaded 'pass' that not even a magician like dats would have been able to receive. If a defenceman had made that atrocious pass, at least someone would have been in the net to make a play on it.

If you let a play like that kill you you don't deserve to win

That'd be fine if this was the Wings of '02 or '08/'09. This current Wings team can't overcome those kinds of stupid mistakes in a series where they are clearly over matched talent-wise. They need everybody playing their best hockey right now, including especially the goaltender.

Howard of Game 1 gives us an excellent chance to win this series.

Howard of Game 2 means we're not gonna win another game till October.

#2508544 Maple Leafs Name Shanahan New Club President

Posted by roboturner on 10 April 2014 - 09:12 PM

Hi I'm Brendan Shanahan of the Toronto Maple Leafs. In the spring of every year, an incident occurs where the Maple Leafs blow their playoff spot with a magnificent collapse.


As the video shows in slow motion, the leafs continue to hand out lengthy contracts to players who to will certainly become a disappointment, and who will disappear when needed most.


Taking into account that the Leafs have a previous history, I have suspended the Leafs from the National Hockey League for 10 seasons.

Yet people wanted to anoint him the starter and drop Howard for a bag of broken sticks a month ago lol

Gus's struggles don't negate Howard's struggles

Compare the teams that Scotty had to the teams that Babs had and this is mighty impressive.

Babs also did it in less time with less games played (lockout).


Sure he makes some questionable decisions at times, but seeing as how he's been so dominant I'm willing to (mostly) overlook them.


We've got a great coach who I'd like to see stay as long as he wants and be able to walk away on his own terms. The guys deserves that much at the very least.


Edit: you beat me to it

Hindsight is 20/20. A player can have a rough patch where people are displeased and then redeem themselves later. I actually don't remember people hating on helm.
