#1993819 Ville Leino Appreciation Thread

Posted by kook_10 on 03 June 2010 - 02:52 PM

"How incredible was Ville Leino tonight? By far the best Flyer on the ice, Leino dipsy-doodled his way through the Blackhawks all night long, pacing his linemates, Danny Briere and Scott Hartnell, with his magnificent play. In the locker room after the game, Ian Laperriere shouted over to him 'Detroit should've traded Datsyuk instead of you.'"


that was the concussion talking.

In all honesty I find it funny.


Me too. I can only wish the Wings had a prick of such monumental proportions. Pure entertainment.


#1993703 Sidney Crosby - The most hated player in the NHL

Nice. Cell phone company mentality. Screw the loyal ones, we need more money. There in lies the problem. It isn't a sport, it is a corporation. Canada lost hockey to the US and this proves that fact. Canadians were perfectly content with the sport but the beer drinking gut wearing football public of the US needed a hook to watch. Something to get them into the sport and dump millions on. Scoring too low, we'll fix that. Tired of games ending in a tie, welcome the shootout. Lack of cheerleaders got you down, ice girls (Thank god this hasn't caught on with every team). I give you American hockey. You're source for the stupid people I have to sit near when I go to games.


At least you apparently gained a new sport in American bashing. :thumbup:

"Waaahh! I can't hustle when Coach Babcock is yelling at me. Waaahh! the Red Wings stripped me of my confidence. Waaahh! It's not my fault I can't play hard and score goals in Detroit."

It honestly doesn't bother me that Ville is doing well somewhere else, but I lost respect for him here and he certainly didn't earn any well wishes from me. He didn't need to blossom, he needed to find a place where he could do things his way and without high expectations. I do however think Holland made a mistake by dishing him before he could establish any value but that was a cap issue. I don't think he was going to blossom like this under Babcock or in Detroit and his comments about his time with the Wings seem to reflect that.

I used to think I would feel betrayed, but with his Team Canada work and all the talk lately it just seemed like an inevitability. He has a great opportunity: he can't do any worse and has a great core squad to work with. With some luck he may just be able to mold Stamkos into Cindy's replacement as the face of the league, and wouldn't that be nice.

#1986785 Correy Perry slashes and slew foots Vockun

Posted by kook_10 on 18 May 2010 - 05:15 PM

He slashed his stick and didn't slew foot him?

He bumped him a little and Vokouns flopping all over the place. Pathetic


I gotta say I'm with Newfy on this one. If anything Perry initiated a little contact with Vokoun, but he didn't get his foot behind him.

#1982909 Ilitch Says Wings Likely To Stay At The Joe

Red Wings owner says team likely staying at arena

By LARRY LAGE (AP) 4 hours ago

DETROIT Detroit Red Wings owner Mike Ilitch says the team will probably play at Joe Louis Arena again next season.

Ilitch was at the storied venue Monday with his wife, Marian, for the annual team picture. He told The Associated Press that "we'll probably end up here."

Joe Louis Arena opened in 1979. The Red Wings' building lease expires at the end of the NHL season.

The Red Wings have been contemplating whether to build a new arena or move at least temporarily to The Palace of Auburn Hills, the home of the NBA's Detroit Pistons.




#1981312 Thanks for the Great Season, Detroit!

Jimmy D said early in the season the best these guys could ask for was just to get into the playoffs. Little did he know what kind of injuries and adversity these guys would have to fight through to get to where they did. The second half of this season was absolutely amazing, and I am as proud as ever to be a Wings fan, and proud of the team for what they accomplished this year. Thank you.

You can't fix what is (or isn't) between his ears.


#1975657 Put Ozzy in.

Posted by kook_10 on 04 May 2010 - 09:53 PM

Just like many things and people with this team, Osgood is an idea whose time has passed. Let Howie lie in his bed. Besides throwing Ozzie into this mess would be one s***ty reward. He deserves better - let him have his victory lap in the rotation next season. Then its out to pasture with the rest.
