I actually wouldn't mind Talbot at the right price. You classic team guy who is a playoff warrior and score some huge goals as we all know. I remember in the back 2 backs with the Pens that he was one of there most dangerous players. I know I will get flamed and negged hard for this but I would take Talbot over Eaves... I'm not afraid to admit it, both are similar players but like I said, Talbot is a playoff warrior...
BTW just as an aside, the couple making out in the street has been identified, and they weren't really making out. The woman had been knocked to the ground by a police shield and her boyfriend was giving her a kiss to say that she'd be alright. Apparently she has one hell of a nasty bruise on her leg, but that's it.
Honest question, what did the Canucks ever do to the Wings to make them so hated here on these forums?
Pretty much everyone I've talked to in Vancouver has a ton of respect for the Red Wings and their organization (great, classy players; fantastic management). Even our own GM said they want to model Vancouver's franchise based on the way the Red Wings are run.
We don't really have any playoff rivalry, nor can I think of any incident a Canuck has done to a Red Wing to garner such hatred.. am I missing something? I'm personally a big fan of the Wings and always root for them when the Canucks are out of the playoffs; but reading the forums here makes me want to dislike the Wings because you hate us so much. (probably a very illogical feeling but likely a natural reaction)
Has anyone else become really annoyed by Mike Modano? Aside from the off-season drama last year, and his lackluster play this year, combined with his "I don't think I have the fire to play in the playoffs" statement BEFORE they started, this latest development just makes me chuckle at his complete lack of heart.
He is apparently considering playing another season, but the Wings won't resign him. But his attitude is "Well, if someone offers I guess I'll play, otherwise I'll quit." Gee, who wouldn't be lining up to sign a guy who really doesn't appear to care if he plays again or not? Why doesn't he just retire if he's so ambivalent about the whole thing?
I'm.... I'm.... stunned.... Where's the line combo?
PS. Eva's hard on for Pitkanen in 5....4....3....2.....
Is it a hard on now because I've been saying for over a year that the Wings should sign him this summer? Not intelligent forethought? I suppose being a common target of personal attacks will get you that change.
I can just say that there is no way in Holy Hell that Weber ends up in Detroit! As many of you know I use to live in Nashville and there would be a riot on Broadway if Weber ended up with the Wings! It would mirror the feeling we would have if Lidstrom was traded to the Hawks!
Nashville fans HATE us, and I do mean HATE us, eventhough they swing from our nuts and want to be us sooooo bad! Anyway, I digress on that; but there is no way Weber ends up here. I would love it to happen, but I just do not see Nashville letting Weber go anywhere and especially to Detroit!
