#2488340 Why did Franzen get 10 min game misconduct?

Posted by P. Marlowe on 01 March 2014 - 03:47 PM

Neil is a meat head, but Franzen needs to STFU if he's not going to do anything more than talk.  Nothing drove me more bat-poop crazy when I played than those guys who would constantly run their mouths but as soon as the game got a little rough they'd run away like a little girl.  If you don't want to fight, that's fine, you shouldn't have to, but don't run your mouth after the game.

 

Is making opponents angry a bad thing? Franzen made Neil angry and do dumb things. So what? The players are on the ice to win games not to try and look cool for fans and follow some vague honor code. 

 

I've also grown very tired of things being said like Franzen having "a purse and lipstick", Samuelsson hurting "his boob", or someone running away like a little girl. Fans often promote hockey of being a "man's game" but yet at the same time it involves all this childish crap like name-calling and fighting. If you ask me that's kindergarten.

"Purse and lipsick"? What is he? A nine-years-old? A LGW member?


#2481626 So what do we call the 26 - 15 - 21 line?

"They Took Our Jobs"

 

- Cleary, Bertuzzi & Samuelsson

I've always liked Shanahan and I hate it that he took this job as it's such a thankless one. There must lots of pressure coming from all sides and no matter what he does there will always be lots of complaining. I hope he's mentally tough enough.

Thanks for the links. I've never seen a pic of Andersson before. Also it's tough to look at Fischer on the ice wearing a Wings jersey as right now he should be at the peak of his career just like Kronwall.

#2424934 Red Wings won't pursue David Clarkson

So that's the apologists line is it? The kids will save us? It shouldn't be forgotten we JUST scraped into the playoffs and we'll be losing Filppula and possibly Cleary/Bertuzzi/Sammy.

 

Expecting all the rookies to have breakout seasons to compensate is silly.

 

Nah. But to say that the team is regressing with all these promising youngsters in the pipeline isn't what I would say. I like that Holland isn't interested in overpaying free agents and get handcuffed by the cap but wants to build the team slowly and surely through the draft to make sure that they stay competitive for years to come.

This will be my fear as well. Another offseason of zero improvements, just regression. It showed last season and the same will happen next season.

 

Bullpoop. All the youngsters in the team will be better the next season than they were last season.




#2424908 Report: Red Wings out on Lecavalier - signs with Philly 5@4.5 per

Posted by P. Marlowe on 02 July 2013 - 05:52 PM

Or could it be that Holland offered him the same but Lecavalier just wanted to go Philadelphia? No, it can't be. We all know that every free agent first wants to go to Detroit and if Holland bungles it up like he always does they start talking to other teams.




#2424804 Report: Red Wings out on Lecavalier - signs with Philly 5@4.5 per

Posted by P. Marlowe on 02 July 2013 - 03:58 PM

The way Lecavalier has played the last few years $5M for five years is too much. Maybe for two years but not five. Lecavalier knows he'll get it somewhere so he's asking it. This is the cap world. In a few years it'll most likely turn out to be a dumb contract. You don't build your team by overpaying players who are on the decline but by underpaying young players who are on the upswing or veterans who can provide good grit and experience.




#2423258 Jonathan Ericsson - should we consider trading him?

Posted by P. Marlowe on 28 June 2013 - 10:58 PM

Iffity schmiffity. You sound a bit like my mother who makes up these scenarios in her head and starts worrying about them in advance. You can start worrying when Ericsson actually demands the $5M+/year contract.

I wonder if this is just God's way of saying that there's too much diving in the NHL nowadays. The way teams like Sharks and Canucks play you'd think their arenas were flooded too.

Posted by P. Marlowe on 09 June 2013 - 08:14 PM

So proud of the griffs and super excited about the future. Syracuse is a great team being up 2-0 is awesome

 

Yeah and on top of that they beat them twice in their building. Griffies have now a great chance to win the Cup at home.

Haha. Funny stuff with Panik coming back from the dressing room to penalty box and right back off again.
