#2457610 Datsyuk concussion: To Return Tuesday

Posted by Kira on 24 November 2013 - 11:52 AM

WTF is wrong with this team??? Their top player and arguably the best in the world gets elbowed in the head and not one sorry ass player does anything about it. I don't care if there is a suspension or not what i want to see is the team stand up for themselves and one another at the point when the incident happens, there is something fundamentally wrong with this team and their principles. Illitch should just relocate them to Sweden and let them play over there and Holland will be the happiest man alive. Im sorry to derail the thread but it infuriates me to watch this team and their complete lack of heart and toughness.      

 Just remember, the one person who would have stood up for him got demoted to GR because they absolutely had to have Cleary here.  And now look at what it has cost us.  Just get well quick, sweetie...that's all we can ask.

I'm totally bummed.  I love the guy's courage and his willingness to work.  I hope he clears and can go to GR.  That would mean I'd get to see him next week. 


So why the hell can't we kick Cleary's sorry ass to the curb?  He should have NEVER changed his mind, and gone to Philly instead.  He wouldn't be missed, believe me.

You know, this is the kind of thing that we appreciate about him being here...to watch him quietly rise up the charts of all-time scorers.  He's in the top 10 on the Wings as well, not far behind the greats - Howe, Delvecchio, Lidstrom, Yzerman, etc.   He goes about it in his own quiet way, and we can only thank the powers that be that we have had the chance to watch it over the years.  Wherever he winds up on the charts, it won't matter...numbers don't capture the joy of watching him.

King Crane, thank you for backing me up on the veterans thing.  If they want to do something nice for them, why not play the song that is associated with that branch of the military.  Each branch has their own song.  I'd much rather hear "Anchors Aweigh" or the Marine Corps song than I would some stupid, sappy, phony piece of crap.

1) When we are at a game, my husband is in a wheelchair.  He doesn't need it all the time, but in crowds, if someone jostled him the wrong way he'd be down on the floor with no feeling in his legs (degenerative form of arthritis in the back).  No one has courtesy for wheelchair fans.  They walk in front of you, they run into you, they don't care.  I'd love to be able to bring his service dog with us, but no way in the world would I do that.  Poor Loki would be trampled to death.


2)  I swear to God, if I have to hear that damned "God Bless the USA" song again, I'm going to barf.  It's nice to honor active duty people, but do we have to hear that crap song...it's as phony as a three dollar bill.  I hate it with a passion.


3)  Karen Newman.  I'm surprised the Humane Society hasn't busted her for cruelty to animals when she sings (or rather, butchers) the anthem.  At least at home, I can hit the mute button.


I know #2 is gonna get me in a lot of dutch with some people here, but I can't help it.  That song is so nauseating it should be banned from the airwaves.

I guess his theory is, if it ain't broke don't screw with it.  Unfortunately, goalies are starting to catch on.  So maybe it's time to pull a new trick out of the bag.  He's got enough of them to do that, it's just finding the one that hits the spot.

So long, sucker.  Don't let the door kick you in the ass on the way out.

#2444600 Luke Glendening?

Posted by Kira on 15 October 2013 - 10:12 AM

He's a good hardworking kid, the type of player that Mike Babcock craves.  He's also a very nice fellow.  I met him at camp, and he was saying, "I'm not famous yet."  "Don't worry,  We can say we knew you when."


And he likes my doggie, so he's thumbs up in my book, and paws up in Loki's.  :D

I was wondering about that.  Can he trade himself to another team?  And will he bench himself if he's playing lousy?

I'd love to see Igor Larionov, Slava Kozlov and Slava Fetisov play one last game together.  I mean, gee, while we're under the wishing tree...

They're moving training camp to Mt. Pleasant???   They canned the head of security at Centre Ice???  They're going to treat wheelchair bound people better???


Well, like someone else said, we can dream...

See, now these are the types of things that make me like Crosby less.


NOT HIS FAULT, I get that, but when he is being thrown down my throat as the top Hockey story all the time, whether or not coffee gives him the runs, or is he allergic to poison ivy (Exaggerations I know) take precedent over legit stories.


I just can't help but be annoyed and tired of hearing his name!


I think 85% of the hate he gets would never had started had the league not rammed him down our collective throats.


The summer of 11-12 was a devastating one for the Hockey World, I hope nothing of the like happens ever again.



Amen,  but you're shooting a little low on the percentage.  Try 99.999%

Damn, I forgot about that...they really are in dire need of some help.

We saw this on "Olbermann" and laughed our heads off.  This goes along with the "Figthing Irish" cups at Notre Dame.  And at least it's not the Pervs.  That could be rather embarassing.


First it was Mike Fisher getting bit by a chipmunk, and now this.  Nashville is in dire need of some decent PR.

I hate people who leave their shopping carts in the handicapped parking area.  How would you like to find out what it means to be handicapped?  It can be arranged.


Plus, you do not get a handicapped permit for stupidity, though to see some people who have them you wouldn't think so.


I hate screaming kids in stores.  I don't know who I want to punish more, the kids who do it or the parents who let them get away with it.
