#2475518 1/22 GDT : Blackhawks 4 at Red Wings 5 (SO)

Posted by AtomicPunk on 22 January 2014 - 08:29 PM

Big mistake not keeping Hossa. I don't care what anyone says.


And Cleary wearing the A tonight made me laugh out loud. This team has become a bit of a joke. They are joking, right?

Are they getting booed on home ice? They deserve it right now.

Wow....this game (and this team) has no pulse right now...what a snoozer. Apathy is worse than anything...and if fans don't see something soon, the Joe will be looking a little empty. It already is, from the looks of this game..

I was gonna say Mike Vernon also. He got a ring there and had 260 or so wins, so that would kind of make HIM their best goalie, one would think.  I was kind of joking about him being a quitter. But he sure could have gotten them a good player if he allowed himself to be traded to a contender and THEN retired once the season was over.

SI.com: Signing Dan Cleary could hurt Detroit Red Wings prospects


Apologies if this has already been discussed.

Great article and exactly how I feel about the situation. Frankly I don't blame Tatar for being pissed. He's certainly earned a spot. Waited long enough. Did everything he could do to show he belongs. Stop signing old tired forwards, Kenny.

#2436107 So....did Cleary just take Tatar's spot?

WTF is up with the Cleary signing? We already have TOO MANY FORWARDS!!! We are OVER THE CAP! And he STILL had to be signed? My God. I can't, and won't, support this move. We are going to lose a more talented player (and I don't know who) because we just had to have ALL OF THEM. They are hockey players, not Pokemon.

It makes me ill that Nyquist isn't signed yet because they "might want to bring Dan Cleary back". Consider yourselves lucky that you didn't sign him, realize you are OVER the cap, not overpay for a shell of what he once was (which wasn't that awesome to start with) and MOVE ON. Nyquist can do nothing but grow. He is exciting to watch and he makes things happen. Cleary is getting worse and makes things happen for the other team, sadly.


And don't show me his stats from last year. Half of those I'm sure were deflections off various body parts.

I'm betting we see Jamie Pushor, Jamie Macoun, Mattheiu Dandenault and maybe Mark Howe or Bob Halkidis.

The other day, allegedly, RGIII took a snap without a knee brace on. An hour of intense discussion and debate ensued.

I have to laugh at how bad everyone wanted this guy re-signed, and when he held out, everyone got on Holland to get it done, and now that he is a Devil, everyone is like, yeah, so, big deal, he's not that good anyway. If he's really not that good, then why did we want to re-sign him anyway?

Is it on Youtube? I'd love to watch that. In my circle of friends, we called Primeau "Lumpy." Not exactly sure why but it seemed to fit.

It's not on YouTube, that was in the days of VHS. I would have to find the box that contains all the old VHS and upload it. Which may happen. :)

Manhandle like this?



I'll take it.

On a side note, I don't think I've ever seen Filppula do that.

Didn't Djoos score 4-5 goals IN ONE GAME against the North Stars once?


I loved it when Primeau got traded. LOVED it. I guess I never got over the fact that we didn't take Jagr because of Petr Klima's troubles. When I think of Primeau on the ice, he's butt is wet from falling down so often trying to unsuccessfully split the defense. Off the ice, I can't forget the grown man COLLECTED MICKEY MOUSE FIGURINES.



I actually made a compilation video of Primeau falling down over and over and over and over, it was pretty long.

I'm not a huge Niedermeyer fan but I acknowledge he was a really good player and won Cups. Cheli and Shanny were no brainers in my opinion. Lindros and Roenick would have gotten in if there weren;t so many other stronger candidates, and I don't think either deserves it, even though I like JR.

#2428732 Wings Attempting to Re-sign Cleary

Posted by AtomicPunk on 08 July 2013 - 08:55 AM

Let's stay on topic here, not re-signing Cleary and hoping some other team devilishly swoops in and steals him away from us! How DARE you steal our great player!! (shaking fist, and then when they leave, high fiving everyone in sight...)
