I haven't read this so-called "article" and I have no intention of doing so. Why do you let people rile you up this way? Anyone with a modicum of hockey knowledge is just sitting back and laughing at her. What these type of articles are really good for is entertainment, especially the comments left by other "fans" who are equally woefully ignorant. Relax and enjoy it, along with the fact that many others are modeling their organizations after the Wings, not the Stars.
You can't start off by saying you haven't even read the article, and then call us out for getting riled up over it.
I GAURENTEE you, if you DID read the article (don't though), you would be just as riled as we are.
Rangers vs. Boston Montreal vs. Ottawa Buffalo vs. New Jersey Toronto vs. Philadelphia Atlanta vs. Washington Islanders vs. Florida Anaheim vs. Detroit Pittsburgh vs. St. Louis Nashville vs. Dallas Columbus vs. Chicago Los Angeles vs. Colorado Carolina vs. Phoenix San Jose vs. Edmonton
Those are all in there.
He wrote "games to watch". As in games that might be interesting or important to Wings fans.
I'm sure there's some well thought out counter-points to this "article" and already there maybe some responses similar to this one:
Shut the f*** up, you uninformed, obviously jealous fan of some lackluster bottom feeding team, and overall hack of a "writer". Try again in a couple years when you've assessed the league and individual franchises as they currently stand, as well as the histories of those franchises both pre- and post-cap, and what that means to success, mediocrity, and failure in the NHL. In the meantime... choke on a bag of dicks.
Yeah that's the thing. There ARE plenty of arguments one could make as to why its easy to dislike the Wings, and I have even read several articles that talk about this in an educated manner. Its just the way she writes, gets all of her facts wrong, outright lies, and simply showcases jealous bitterness rather than a healthy rivalry.
Nope, every since his injury he's been making bad passes and has lost a step. Whether you like it or not or agree or disagree, it's the truth. Hopefully he turns it around, but he's played like garbage this year.
Not sure how that makes him a "shadow of his former self", especially when we are SIX GAMES INTO THE SEASON.
I've seen him look pretty good, despite being moved around on various pairings. He has been hitting, leads our defense in goals, hasn't looked terrible defensively.
Not sure how you can present an opinion as truth, but I DO disagree.
I didn't even read the article until now. As an aspiring journalist, I hope wherever I end up working will be thousands of miles away from this writer, as she would lower the intelligence level of the entire staff by her mere presence.
What a crock of s***. The Red Wings are arrogant, and yet no examples. Red Wings fans are stupid, and yet no examples. Mike Modano a Wing? I guess this bimbo forgot her team didn't want him back. What a putz.
When has a live octopus ever been thrown onto the ice? Imagine sneaking that in under your pants!
Well she starts by saying that she has been a hockey fan since she was 8 years old. Based on the quality of writing and information she presented.... that would make her about 9 years old currently. So lets give her a break.
What an absolute idiot. A fan is just clapping in the stands and he goes after him. Guy has some serious problems. He is a Matt Cooke type of player, no business being in this league. I wish they would just get rid of these cowards.
