#2107690 Jordin Tootoo in rehab

Posted by puckloo39 on 31 January 2011 - 03:09 PM

Good news... I can't stand Tootoo, but wish him no harm. Glad he got better, and good on the Preds and NHL for standing up for him and with him as he tries to right the ship. Hope he learned something from this and makes the most of a second chance not everyone gets in life.

Now, I hope the Wings beat the Preds' butts on 4/2, because I plan to be there. :lol:

So sick of all of you whining about Jimmy or any of the poor men who are stupid enough to play goal in Detroit. Who was letting the Devils whack at the puck 25 times until they stuffed it home? Jimmy?

Whatever.

I give up. :rolleyes:

Yay! First, it's on Versus - so I can actually see the game on TV, and second: It's FATSO!!!


Can't wait, go Wings!! Good guys score 1 million goals, other guys, like, hardly any. :P

Woo!

He had the option to leave the hostile environment. I get a little tired of this constant litigious over-reaction to practically everything.

It makes me :rolleyes:

Ah, cool... I love it when I watch a game and have to keep thinking, "Now, who is that?" - and they're playing for my team. :(


#2101824 The Hottest Red Wing

Posted by puckloo39 on 21 January 2011 - 12:16 PM

I can't say that I'm thrilled about Nabokov becoming a Wing because I'm worried about what this will mean for Osgood. I was hoping he'd have 1 more season in him but if we have Nabby they might decide to just let him go when his contract is up. I'm not ready for him to be done playing. :(



I know just how you feel, Dawn. Dom got forced out of Detroit, too, for no good reason other than league politics and some other things I believe, but cannot prove. He chose to retire and leave his beloved Wings because he knew this team was done with him. As he said, "I am done with the NHL, but not with the business of hockey, I think." He meant that, apparently, since he has not stopped playing and winning championships in Czech and Russia.

I don't know that Ozzie's got another year or not. He's not Dom... who is still playing at age 46, come January 29th. But you have to accept that Dom is a unique specimen by anyone's reckoning. :D

As for Nabs coming here, he's not pushing Ozzie out. Kenny made the decision that we cannot go forward with one goalie, essentially. Howard is young, but he's not invincible. We are not doing well without Ozzie to back up. The guys are exhausted from all the other injuries and Jimmy's taking a battering because of it. I hope Jimmy knows that bringing in Nabby is an insurance policy. And nothing more. At the end of this season, Nabby will be free to sign with any other NHL team -- and he will. Watch and see.

As for Ozzie, he will probably have the option of coming back as back-up for another season, if he wants. We just can't go forward or into the playoffs with one goalie and the threat of having Ozzie go down again. He will, if he tries to come back too soon after the surgery.

Passie-passie-passie... how 'bout shootie-shootie, guys?


#2100526 Wings Negotiating w/ Nabokov

Posted by puckloo39 on 20 January 2011 - 02:09 PM

Getting ahead of myself, but he will backup Jimmy, correct? Assuming Ozzie's injury puts him out as long as stated. Or will they split the role as our goalies have done in the past?


that would be my assumption, that Jimmy is still #1, Nabs is back-up, or more like 1A/1B. I would see a split.

Nabby's a very good goalie, he's played for teams which dragged him down to where he had nothing left. The Wings won't do that to him. He will shine here.

This thread is racing right along in GF. Does that mean it's not a rumor?

:unsure:


I hope it's true. Love me a Euro-goalie, you know? :blush:


#2100231 Jimmy Howard will be back in net Thursday

Posted by puckloo39 on 19 January 2011 - 09:09 PM

Howard is like most goalies - as his defense goes, so goes his game. With the players we have had injured and the duration of the outages, I am not really surprised Howard is worn down and off his game.

There are really very few goalies playing right now who I consider game-stealers, aside from Thomas, on occasion.

We expect way too much of this team. That said, they looked like they were skating in a different dimension last night. They have to be better, or there is no hope for Jimmy.

Get out the torches and pitchforks. It's been a while since the fans have run a goalie out of town in Detroit, for playing as well if not better than the majority of NHL goaltenders... it's Jimmy's turn! ;)

At least if there had been a handshake after the game, we saved Sid the trouble of skipping it. Again.

Go, Wings! See ya Thursday, boyz!! :thumbup:

This is just a piss poor showing. Waste of a good evening, if you ask me.


Not wasted. I spent it here with you guys, the Wings didn't let it be a shut out... and it's not over yet!

auugh.. our boo-boo list makes me want to boo-hoo. :( But, at least we can watch a game without hearing you-know-who's name every shift. No doubt there will still be many, many mentions of his highness, but I bet his team mates are enjoying their time as hockey players, rather than nannies on skates.

Go, Wings. Win this one, we need to catch Vancouver!!!!
