i dont like the whole "but he's good in the playoffs" deal, because quite frankly, if you dont bring it in the regular season, there wont be a post season.

Of course, but it's still better than nothing. And also better than bringing it in the regular season, but not in the playoffs. It's not like Wings are struggling to get into the post season 'cause Mule is slumping.

He's still leading the team in goals, but it's frustrating as he has the potential the score so much more. Right now I think he's good for his salary and I hope the cap rises enough so that he won't be overpayed in his late 30's.

That's just Ott doing his job, getting opposing team's star players to get penalties.

"You're dumb and your mother's ugly. Now elbow me in the head when the ref is looking."

This is the time during Wings games when LGW becomes more entertaining than the actual game.

This isn't about enforcing, IMO. As a teammate and as a man, if you see that happen, you (try to) f*** the dude up. If you don't think you can take the guy, cross-check him in the teeth first. Do something

The part I bolded really popped out for me. I can't decide what to think about that. Funny thing this game of hockey. No one likes to see violence on the street or at home, but most people who watch hockey wants to see two clans of cavemen clash. I enjoy watching hockey fights, especially the ones from the rivalry with Avs, but I'm not sure I'd be able to convince myself that what the players are doing is manly.

What's manly in hockey changes all the time. I think it was Sami Salo who wore neck protection for a short time, but stopped 'cause his teammates were ripping him. I wouldn't be surprised if in twenty years everyone in the league would wear neck protection and visors.

Could it be that "a man" is someone who denies his animal instincts and the pressure of the crowd, teammates and traditions and just doesn't choose to hurt another person because what they're doing is just playing a game? Professional grown up hockey players are allowed to live a kid's dream in front of huge crowds and get more money for it than most people. Acting like an adult is quite far away from the situation they are in, at least when they are away from their personal lives.

I really don't know and I admit that I'm thinking too much. Hockey is about fun and childishness and definitely not about philosophy. Entertainment is best when it makes us forget our lives and now I'm mixing normal life with hockey. Normal life doesn't count inside a hockey rink. Still players can't completely forget how they act outside the rink and just mindlessly attact someone. I'm not surprised that the most violent players usually have problems in their personal lives, while you really couldn't imagine Lidström, Yzerman or Larionov in a bar fight.

One thing is for sure: if I ever met Kostopoulos, I wouldn't shake his freaking hand.

As a hockey analyser on TV aren't you allowed to breathe between sentences?

It's not your fault, I can see the videos. I think you need to have a proper video codec installed or something like that to see them.

BTW, great videos. It was nice of you to collect this list.

i'm not sure if you're joking or not. i know a guy who gets really irritated with weather people because when they say "there's a thirty seven percent chance of rain," he's all, "there's a fifty-fifty chance--either it's raining or it's not!" that doesn't stand to reason. there are two choices, yes, but that doesn't mean that each one of them is equally likely. like i said, not sure if you're joking or not...that's sort of a pet peeve of mine, so if you were kidding, congrats on successful trolling (intentional or otherwise)! :)

There's a 50-50 chance. Either he's kidding or he's not.
