#2609673 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 May 2015 - 11:26 AM

The obnoxious thing about it is that it won't make Russian professional hockey more viable. It won't do anything he's hoping it will do.  It will just make Russian hockey crappy because nobody who's playing it will give a damn.  And anybody who gives a damn will turn their efforts toward activities that aren't subject to repression. 

 

How do I know?  Because it already happened with Russian sports.  And industry.  And art.  And everything else.  Forcing people to do something stifles motivation, creativity, passion, hard work, and effort.  It NEVER increases them.  Ask Slava, it's exactly how he felt in 1989.

 

Haven't you ever read "We" or "Brave New World"?  

 

 

If I have to choose between free will and happiness, I choose happiness.  I want to be mind controlled to be happy. I want to be plugged back into The Matrix, baby!    

 

JK.  Successful mind control like in those novels is not yet viable.  We still have a long way to go.  


 

Senator.  But in Putin's Russia being the elected representative of the public is largely a ceremonial position.  You're not really expected (or allowed) to do much. 

 

Whereas here, people in DC actually get stuff done, right?   :dozing:

Re-sign Dan Cleary please.  




#2602705 At What Point Does Holland Deserve Blame?

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 April 2015 - 12:15 PM


Holland is a great GM overall.  The team has done a tremendous job in developing players without having any early draft picks and he has an impressive track record.
 
When it comes to free agent signings though Holland has made several uncharacteristically bad deals over the last few seasons.  And has looked desperate in his attempts to bolster the blueline in Lidstrom's absence, which was also uncharacteristic of him.  
 
I think my biggest worry with Holland is that the handful of bad deals he's made are indicating a trend rather than exceptions. 


 
In addition, there are some deals he hasn't made which could have positively or negatively impacted the team.  We really can't say in hindsight if it was a good deal or not.
 
I remember when Weiss was signed.  Everyone was all over this signing as a great one.  This was an upgrade over Flip.  Now, he isn't viewed as an upgrade anymore.

There were more than a few people who were either neutral or didn't like the signing at all. Just do a quick search


#2602919 Kronwall suspended one game

Posted by shoe on 28 April 2015 - 07:10 PM

The league should be thanking Kronwall and writing him a cheque for all the exposure his hit and other hits have done for the league over the years. All I heard on every sports show this morning was talk of the hit not the goals not the saves not the fact Washington won a game 7.

 

May as well get Reebok to add frilly Tutus to the bottom of every jersey next year too.

Well, I think I'm done with the NHL for a while. Just cancelled my VPN, and game center live subscription. 




#2602871 Kronwall suspended one game

I'm done watching once the Wings go out.

 

Not just this incident, but I have said for years, I hate the NHL besides my undying devotion to the Red Wings. Garbage league run by clowns.

I... I just have no energy for this league anymore. None. I don't even give a f*** what happens tomorrow. Such a sham.

After we win tomorrow... I hope Nik kronwalls every Hab into oblivion!

I hope the Wings go like hell tomorrow. Hit every Tampon Bay that touches the puck hard. Give them someone to really talk about.


#2545894 10/31 GDT : Los Angeles Kings (2) at Red Wings (5), 7:30 EST

Posted by Echolalia on 31 October 2014 - 09:21 PM

6-2-2 for a month that we were suppose to be very bad in

 

With the Wings its never the elite opponents I worry about.   Its the Florida Panthers of the NHL that usually do us in.




#2540671 Jeff Petry; trade between us and oilers

Posted by WingsallTheway on 14 October 2014 - 04:28 PM

I'd like to see Meyers swapped for Quincey and Kindl.

 

Id like to see Cleary and Weiss shipped for Crosby and Malkin




#2540231 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by joesuffP on 11 October 2014 - 08:57 PM

I blame Howard the most for this loss. The one gimmie goal was completely on him and it seemed like the ducks only had 3 good scoring chances all of which went in. Against Bostom we were dominating and he gives up one on the first shot. It's so deflating it effects the whole team




#2540226 10/11/14 GDT: Game 2 | Ducks 3 @ Red Wings 2

Posted by aflac9262 on 11 October 2014 - 08:53 PM

I thought Detroit played an overall decent game tonight and they certainly deserved to come away with point(s) tonight. Howard needs to cut down on the amateur mistakes behind and around the net. It is creating unnecessary pressure and tension on the defense. He's been around the majors long enough and should know better by now.

Posted by joesuffP on 11 October 2014 - 08:53 PM

I'm starting to really resent Howard. He seems like a good guy but that contract is ridiculous and there's no way any of his teammates can have any sort of confidence in him. 1 good/decent game 5 bad ones repeat. 




#2532449 Babcock Interview on 105.1 this morning

Posted by LeftWinger on 18 July 2014 - 07:02 AM

...after a few weeks of thinking about it, and after hearing some interviews, if the UFA's don't want to come here, f*** em! If they don't want to be coached (like Babs said) and want to go somewhere where the team bows down to them, f*** em!  (I still hate the #KFQ signing, but can kinda, sorta understand the Cleary....kinda.)

 

I say, this team will conquer, this team will rise, and if they don't then they will again!  Get Babs signed, get these kids bridged in, lets remake this Dynasty core, Lets Go Wings!
