#2531509 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 11 July 2014 - 10:20 AM

My dad noticed his new number last season and said, "If I were Cleary, I would have change my number and the name on the back of the jersey."




#2520360 Canada can support 3 more teams in 20yrs

I would move a struggling US team to Hamilton and Quebeq.  I wouldn't do any more expansion.




#2517826 NHL lacks class.

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 27 April 2014 - 09:42 PM

 

I'm guessing you haven't watched hockey very long if you think this way.  

 

There's never been a time in NHL history when fighters had more skill than they do now.  15 years ago, enforcers who could barely skate would have a regular spot on every NHL team.  Those players are largely extinct.  Today's NHL has largely weeded out unskilled fighters.    

 

And a byproduct of this is that you get these wanna-be tough guys that go around cheap stuff like anything that Cooke does, and Boochich hitting DeKeyser in the nuts.

 

I'm still very dissapointed in the 5K fine, what a joke.




#2517588 Do you want Jonas Gustavsson re-signed?

I felt the Gustavsson did well.

If Babs keeps Franzen on Datsyuks line, we don't have a prayer. That lazy f*** ruins any in zone time, CHANGE THE LINES!!!

 

"Lazy" is the best way to define Franzen.

We can't win if Jimmy let's s*** like this in.  We simply don't have the offense to make up for mediocrity in the net.




#2509173 4/13 GDT: Red Wings 3 @ Blues 0

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 13 April 2014 - 11:58 AM

Bad call. The penalty was committed after the shot was taken. That should be a good goal.

 

Under technicality, yes, it should have been a goal.  However, the spirit of the rules is that you can't interfere with them.  Imagine if there was a Blues player hacking away at Jimmy every time they released a slapper.

 

It sucks, but I think the ref made a good call.




#2508961 Ryan Malone arrested

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 12 April 2014 - 11:13 AM

I hope he's punished just like anyone else.  Drunk driving kills folks, taking sons, daughters, mothers, and fathers away from families forever.  I wish Mr. Malone luck with any alcohol issues he may have.

The game Crosby sucker punched Zetterberg and then complained after the game that Howard had no business coming in and face washing him because it was a fight between him and Z was the day he lost whatever shed of dignity he had left .

 

Yup.  Z was clear that he wanted no piece of Crosby.  He was probably afraid that NBC and the league would come down on him if he beat him up.

 

Crosby is a whiner and a punk.  I hope he recovers from his concussion stuff, but if he doesn't and has to retire I won't lose any sleep.




#2507661 What is everyones second favorite team?

Boston here.

Tatar has a wicked shot, he sure can find these corners!




#2504760 4/2 GDT - Bruins 2 at Red Wings 3

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 02 April 2014 - 07:39 PM

That should have been a goal, but with all the BS we've received for this kind of similar call I don't feel too bad.




#2502557 Perspective

I am excited for next year, but I'll be really bummed if we miss the playoffs.  I hate baseball.




#2501298 3/25 GDT - Red Wings 2 at Blue Jackets 4

Posted by Holmstrom96 on 25 March 2014 - 08:42 PM

Oh crap, these refs are going to be in trouble, they just called a penalty on Columbus!




#2501254 3/25 GDT - Red Wings 2 at Blue Jackets 4

I can't stand cities where they play the same utterly stupid song after every goal.
