Posted by P. Marlowe on 02 April 2012 - 05:36 PM

The story around the hit makes it even more beautiful. I can't remember another player who really deserved to get Kronwalled.


#2276299 Tomas Holmstrom's fate

I think polls like that are terrible. It's one thing to sit here and discuss it amongst ourselves, but to have a public poll asking if someone else should be forced out is insensitive.

I realize he's a hockey player and he takes as much abuse as anyone in the rink, and then some, but the subject of outliving your usefulness is a touchy one. It is a call that should be decided between him, his team, his family, and the management, and then brought to the fans.

Let him go out publicly with the honour and dignity he has earned, not with faceless people slamming the door behind him from their keyboards.

I realize a lot of people who took part in that poll are too young to have faced the point in their life when they have to face up to the fact that they are no longer capable of carrying their weight, but trust me on this one, it is a huge blow to one's pride.


I agree. There always are people rude enough to vote on this kind of things but I think it was a stupid idea by MLive to put it up in the first place.


#2276122 Babcock's after game comments

How would it help the team if Babcock called the players out when he's interviewed? Feeding the drama-hungry fans isn't part of his job.

Pretty amazing that he passed Sundin


?

He didn't.

I missed the interview. I'd like to see a video.

If McGuire ever came to interview me I'd like to keep a little distance.




#2271344 3/17 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Sharks 3 (OT)

B- just reading Babcock's cliche/scripted post game quotes just makes me boil. Dude is a great coach but cannot motivate these guys to save his life.


Do you really think that Babcock would try to motivate the team through media? We have no idea how the things are and what is said in the locker room. It seems to me that some fans think this game is some sort of a movie where actors/athletes need to show their emotions directly to the camera/fans in order to create proper amount of drama.

#2264640 Legacy of Ken Holland

Posted by P. Marlowe on 28 February 2012 - 06:15 PM

Wow so Holland gave up:

Petr Sykora, Patrick Sharp, Alexei Ponikarovsky, Mike Green, Thomas Fleischmann, Mike Comrie, and Mike Knuble for ...

Jamie Macoun, Doug Brown, Stefan Liv, and Robert Lang???

:thumbdown: :scared: :thumbdown:


Very good. Holland has made some alrightish moves too. Like building the current team.

It's not that Sykora though. There are two Petr Sykoras. This one has played 12 NHL games during his career.

#2259919 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by P. Marlowe on 21 February 2012 - 05:20 PM

What's this deal about Quincey's poor attitude and him being a problem in the locker room? I'd like to get quotes with names and not gossip and rumours.


#2259899 Kyle Quincey traded to Detroit in 3 team trade (TBL & COL)

Posted by P. Marlowe on 21 February 2012 - 05:07 PM

I would trade Thomas McCollum and/or Landon Ferraro for Kyle Quincey in a heartbeat.

I don't think Kindl will be moved as the team can carry eight defencemen because of the injured forwards.

I'm quite sure Holland has no problem in re-signing Quincey so this trade is also about getting ready for the departures of Lidström and Stuart. They might return for next season but will probably be gone in few years anyhow. Wings have now five good young defencemen in White, Quincey, Ericsson, Kindl and Smith.

Posted by P. Marlowe on 21 February 2012 - 04:26 PM

He's still just 26 and he's an upgrade over Ericsson, Kindl and Commodore. I'd say he's worth of a late first rounder.


#2259247 freeredwings.tv stops streaming NHL games

I'm sorry to hear about this. I've been very thankful of your site ever since I started experiencing problems with drumnj's stream. There's no way for me to be able to afford the channels needed for watching NHL here.

Thank you for everything. It was great while it lasted.
