#2063809 Bob MacKenzie

Posted by Yzerfan1999 on 16 November 2010 - 06:38 PM

I don't think the OP got the idea of the article right at all. McKenzie (not MacKenzie) is parodying himself and the rest of the media because they always feel like they are right, or know more - but in reality, they are just like the fans - they THINK they know better than the league executives, but really they don't.

McKenzie is a great analyst, probably the most respected by league executives and players alike. Not to mention - he has a hard on for the Wings, and ALWAYS picks them to either make the finals or win the Cup. He seems like the only one on TSN to ever give the Wings their proper due, and I respect him for that, among other things.

#2024542 Wings sign Ruslan Salei

Posted by Yzerfan1999 on 09 August 2010 - 05:12 PM

will s***. just when i thought the Wings were getting younger, they add Modano at 40 (who I can live with), and Salei at 35. Not all that impressed, but hey im no GM.

#1987436 UFA v RFA

Posted by Yzerfan1999 on 19 May 2010 - 11:37 PM

I may be a retard here, but I don't think we are understanding his question - this judging by his response. A GM can't sign a player to 'become' a UFA or a RFA, the player earns the right to be a UFA over time. Even if a GM signs a rookie, who's entry level deal is up, to a one year contract, he can only do that so many times before that player is a UFA anyways (27 years old, or 7 years pro service). Its better for a GM to lock up these guys long term, so that their ability to become a UFA is delayed. A GM can sign a RFA to a one or two year deal if they are not sure what their value will be long term, or if they can't agree on a number long term. The best case scenario is to give RFA's short term deals until the year before they become a UFA, then hit them with a long term deal so they stay off the market - much like how Zetterberg's contract worked out.

Does that make any sense or is that not what your asking?

Nobody who wears teal deserves to win anything. Go Hawks. Go Habs.

#1984911 Crosby Should Get More Blame than Ovechkin

Posted by Yzerfan1999 on 13 May 2010 - 11:19 PM

Crosby was awesome in game 7. He took a bad penalty right off the bat which put his team down a goal, played 29 minutes and was ONLY a -2 with no points!

CLUTCH I tell you! CLUTCH like no one has ever been!



Crosby wont get the blame Ovechkin got because he has actually achieved something in his career already. Back to back cup finals, Stanley Cup ring, Olympic Gold. You don't hear people saying Zetterberg and Datsyuk choked in the San Jose series because of all the team success they've already had. Crosby gets a longer leash because the Pens, just like the Wings, have played more hockey than anyone else in the last three years and won the Cup last year. Ovechkin and the Caps have now choked three years in a row, and Ovechkin and the Russian's choked at the Olympics as well. A lot more to point at Ovechkin than Crosby. Plus it was a second round loss, not a first with a 3-1 series lead.

Not even comparable in my mind.

#1963725 Ray Ferraro

Posted by Yzerfan1999 on 27 April 2010 - 10:58 PM

Your brutal. Ferraro has been one of the best colour commentators in the league for the past 4 or 5 years. Completely neutral in this one, but is not afraid to call out players on either side who do something stupid.

The fact that his son is in the organization aside, he was great tonight. In fact, he is one of the few guys (along with Bob McKenzie) who regularly give the Wings their due.

#1949803 WCQF Game 3 GDT: Coyotes 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by Yzerfan1999 on 18 April 2010 - 05:23 PM

Zetterberg played really well again today, but Datsyuk had a really off game IMO. As good as Zetter is, I think for this team to win, Datsyuk still has to be their best player, and he really didn't carry much of the play today.

Hopefully that goal woke Franzen up, cause he had been dragging his ass in this series to that point.

#1924980 Fan Fight in the Stands

Posted by Yzerfan1999 on 26 March 2010 - 01:32 AM

What a couple of f***in losers. The Ducks fan probably deserved it, but due to the fact that this video is on youtube and sportscentre, both of them are probably in trouble with the law.

Is it really worth it? Jesus....

T.Low, he is not a beautiful Canadian boy, he is an embarrassment.

#1916453 Ovie Suspended

repeat offender, and in light of Lapierre's suspesion, this is completely fair.

#1914208 How many players from Team USA would have made Team Canada?

Posted by Yzerfan1999 on 11 March 2010 - 08:33 PM

I call bulls***. The first line of the original post is "No flame." When I see that, the meaning for me is "I realize this is about to piss a lot of people off". All I did was question the relevance of the conversation in this forum, at this time, while attempting to point out it's ludicrous in the first place. All of a sudden I was bitter. Now I derailed the thread to boot. I'm going to lose a lot of sleep tonight, and it may well affect my diet.

Don't give yourself so much credit. These guys are talking Basketball.

He's a 16 year old kid. He'll learn not to do that again, that's for sure.

Wow, tough love here on LGW.

The truth is though, as it always is - if this happened to a Wings player, you would all be calling for a year long suspension. Since its not, you guys all fall into the 'tough old time hockey guy mode' and call it a clean hit, and of course it was Fanelli's fault for putting himself in that position. It was CLEARLY boarding, hitting from behind, AND a head shot, not to mention he took about 5 strides from the blue line to make that hit. The kids skull is fractured, broken orbital bone, and a huge facial laceration. The kid may never play again, let alone want to play again. Liambus said himself that he was shaken up by the hit, and he shouldn't have done it.

Fanelli's mother and father were in the stands watching the game. Went Fanelli got hit, his mother fainted and had to be revived by paramedics.
