#2004084 Wolski Re-signs with Coyotes

Posted by hooon on 24 June 2010 - 02:18 PM

He did well last year on both squads, but I agree, that seems a little steep. I guess they really wanted to keep him. He is also pretty young though, and hasn't yet realized his potential.

It should be the Steve Yzerman Leadership Award to begin with.

Seriously, this award is such a joke. Messier became a journeyman in the "height" of his leadership years. Anyone remember Vancouver?

NHL seriously goofed this one, but it looks like its here to stay.

Ahh good old fashion racist hockey jokes. NOW we're getting somewhere.

The utter disrespect for the game he's being PAID to host the ceremony for? It doesn't help that he obviously needs to hire a better writer.

But he isn't smug at all!

lol you know I HATE Kane, and particularly his sense of humor. But i even thought that was funny.

Ok so THIS is what the cirque de soleil hype is all about?? Am I missing something? Looks like a Tim Burton wet dream.

congrats Myers. And great job Jimmy on a great season.

Seriously tho... this host guy is just embarrassing the NHL. I'd be more embarrassed by all of this if I knew people were actually watching.

YAYYYYY DATSYUK! WOOOOOO. CONGRATS!!!! they should change it to the Datsyuk Trophy. Epic speech. His english has really.... improved.

Wow. This is already sooo terrible. This host might be the most annoying ******* I've ever had to watch. This whole process just makes a huge joke out of the NHL.

#2002787 Do Wings fans want another Yzerman?

Posted by hooon on 22 June 2010 - 04:42 PM

Wings have no shortage of leadership in the locker room. In fact, as far as leadership goes, we probably have more than any other team in the league. Some of them are vocal, some lead by example.

I would love another Yzerman, but we all know its kind of impossible. For one, I don't see us getting any top 5 overall picks any time soon (I hope), and also, I think we got pretty lucky with Yzerman, having him turn out the way he did.

I think Z will make for a great captain, and will lead very similarly to how Lids did.

#2002549 Sakic vs Yzerman Debate

Posted by hooon on 22 June 2010 - 12:50 PM

Seems like everyone there just based their answer off of who had more points. Everyone knows Yzerman took a step back in his point production in order to become a solid player defensively, I cannot say the same for Sakic. I also think those results might be skewed simply based on the fact that other than Wings fans, most other NHL fans seem to dislike the Wings for one reason or another, while the Aves never really received the universal jealousy/hatred.

Sakic is great, so is Yzerman, and their strengths and skill sets are completely different. Its true I'm biased as well, but I'd choose Yzerman all day long.

#1999692 somehow, we need to get a scoring third line center...

I wouldn't mind seeing something like:


#1999556 Pronger Responds

Posted by hooon on 14 June 2010 - 05:15 PM

I've never hated Pronger as much as others do, I've always thought he had a pretty great sense of humor. Sure I hate it when the Wings play against him, but the guy is one of the best.

I loved the comments, they were spot on. Burish really shouldn't be saying that right AFTER the series. If anything, say it before or during the series, pretty cowardly to call a guy out right after you know you wont play him again for a very long time, maybe ever.
