In Topic: Riley Sheahan

15 December 2010 - 04:24 PM

Damn I thought so thats too bad, I woulda liked to see him play on the big stage and apparently he was really close to making it.

Maybe theres an injury and he gets the call before the tournament like when Dana Tyrell got hurt playing Sweden and Kane got called up.

Its too bad he wasn't producing at Notre dame, they probably didn't wanna take him just in case he couldn't produce. Had he been in the OHL I bet he makes this team because he produced well at the camp

Don't worry about Sheahan too much, he hasn't put up many points at ND thus this fall but i attend a CCHA university and i've seen him play 4 or 5 times and he's the real deal, very strong game away from the puck, he'll fit into the Wings system very well and his numbers will come...I'm also good friends with a kid that attended the Wings developmental camp this summer with Sheahan and he said he was very impressed with him and that he's good guy off the ice too...he got into a bit of trouble at the end of last season at ND but it was for drinking and let's be honest who didn't drink and make a few mistakes in college :hehe:

In Topic: Retire Osgood's #30?

14 December 2010 - 09:26 PM

This "argument" has always baffled me, the guy has 2 Cups as the starting goalie, is top 25 in goal against average all time, is 10th currently and may be 8th all time in wins by the end of this season, 8th all time in playoff wins, 4th all time in playoff shutouts....what more do you want? Did he play most of his career in an organization where one of the greatest to ever put on the pads (sawchuck) already played? yes..Did he play at a time when 4 or 5 of the handful of people who are better than him also played? yes....None of that should diminish what osgood did, if he plays at a time when there weren't 4 or 5 legends his place in history is much more lusterous. The fact of the matter is that if Chris Osgood put up the numbers he has put up in almost any other organization in the NHL save for a few then he is an organization legend...did playing with so many great players help his stats and help his teams be more succesful? absolutely but it helped all of those others players careers as well..How often do you hear people saying that Lidstrom wouldnt have reached the level of success he had if he hadn't had the benefit of playing with so many other great defensive players? almost never, and taking nothing away from Lidstrom but if he played his entire career with a team that never had another HOF or all star d-men on the the team he would not have as many Norris's end of discussion...Just because the Wings have had the luxury of having more all time great players than any other organization other than the Habs shouldn't be a punishment to osgood...the 2nd best goalie the wings have ever had is osgood (behind a guy who would go on the mount rushmore of goalies mind you) and he certainly has the numbers, in a few years he will have a plaque in the HOF...everyone is complicating this way too much, Ozzie deserves to have his jersey in the rafters.

In Topic: NJD put Brian Rolston on waivers

Here's hoping Rolston will retire and come back to coach at his alma mater, Lake Superior State University, we could use the help to return to the glory days! He'd add a whole lot to recruiting that's for sure!

In Topic: Bert: (One of) the most hated athletes.

02 December 2010 - 02:18 PM

You wouldn't think it, but Ovechkin has a pretty big hate following too. I noticed this when watching videos on Youtube. I'm pretty sure though that most of the Ovechkin haters, are actually just Crosby fans.

Was watching Datsyuk videos, and found he had a few haters too. I wasn't even mad. It actually made me smile :)

I don't know if it's just me or not, but I freaking LOVE when people hate on the Wings. It's the same feeling I get when an ex-girlfriend tries to get back with me. That feeling of "OH yeah, you know you love it."

As far as Bert, I can see why he was hated during his stint with Vancouver, but lets be honest. That dude has completely reinvented himself, especially this year. Bertuzzi v2010, is not even close to the same man he use to be. Thankfully, his v2010 is pretty good in it's own way :)

You must be lost. Let me point you in the right direction.


Ovechkin has a hate following because he is a brash, cocky, person who puts up big stats but chokes when the pressure is on...if you have a "look at me" personality then it behooves you to win titles and big games to validate the fact that you act like an a**hole....Look at Michael Jordan and Lebron James, they're equally selfish but MJ has the rings...and thus a much smaller "anti-" following
