#2136713 Do You Think Parity Works in the NHL?

Posted by blgillett on 27 March 2011 - 10:19 AM

personally i think the whole parity thing in any sport is just wrong. just because the NHL has teams in places that has no business putting a team doesn't mean successful team should have to have a ball and chain around there necks plus if you have a GM like Holland he just works around the whole cap thing and we still have been a power house in the post cap world of Gary Bettman :sneaky2:

Everyone is saying Pronger I would have him on my team for free. He is a piece of work. I think he shouldn't be aloud in the nhl. He is the dirtiest player that has ever played the game but everyone is aloud there own opinion I guess. Hang him I say. Lol

#2032355 Line excitement

I for one would love to see Babs just keep rolling with all four line. There is a lot of talent from top to bottom of our line up. The more the bottom two lines get at the beginning of the year the more rested the top two lines will be at the end of the year. Going two be lots of fun!

#2028161 Small rule change confirmed

It sure seems to me that with the shoot outs in the game every one plays it safe and doesn't push the play in ot. There should be a lot more at stake if you don't score in ot you're not going to take home any point from the game. Make it an 8 min ot, winner gets 2 loser 0. Shoot outs are exciting, but it take away hOckey in it purest form. Just doesn't seem right.

#2026988 How big of a Wings fan is your Wife/Girlfriend/Significant Other?

Posted by blgillett on 18 August 2010 - 05:43 AM

After being married to a Red Wing fanatic for 20 years she can't help to be a huge fan her self. She watches a lot of games the only exception is the stinking west coast games, but she always knows what is going on in those games because some body forgets others are sleeping and yells at the tv. Not to mention my oldest played hockey from the age of 4 through 3 years of high school. Also I was his coach some of that time. So she has attended a lot of game including Muskegon hockey Grand Rapids and Red Wings games.

#2025622 Was it a good decision to sign Zetterberg

Both are great deals Z will be the next C and Franzen is a beast who could score 40 goals this year top end on low end 30. With years of the same numbers.

The whole thing is a joke! None of these will make the game better. Way to use the old noodle boys!

#2022832 4th line

Will Babs play Downey over Abby or Helm or Eaves? I sure the hell wouldn't ! I don't think he's going to make the Grand Rapids team!

Talent has every thing to do with it that and we have to many forwards now!

#2022554 4th line

Posted by blgillett on 04 August 2010 - 08:10 PM

Sorry but not a chance! They have to many forwards now and all of them have a lot more talent then he has. If he is signed its Grand Rapids. As long as we don't have a repeat from last year we are more then set at forward.

Gotta have ma man Downey in there some games next year! :thumbup:
