Fredo is my new one, so we can make Godfather references when Alfredsson does things.

Emdog has become commonplace.


Nice. Fredo definitely broke some hearts in Ottawa.

#2428871 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 08 July 2013 - 07:21 PM

I like Brunner and it's going to be tough seeing him go somewhere else, but he has to do what's right for him financially at his age. With that said, Tatar will be a better replacement anyway imo. eh's a pretty cool guy, more gritty, goes to the net and doesn't afraid of anything. But seriously, i think we'll see more consistency out of Tatar and the third line will probably be better because of him.

#2425075 Wings buy out Colaiacovo, will keep Bertuzzi

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 02 July 2013 - 08:17 PM


Pretty much.  Holland is obsessed with old geysers who aren't that good anymore.  Did Bertuzzi or Samuelsson even play last season?  Why are they being given another chance to get injured?   


I remember Cleary playing, because we all made countless jokes about him throughout the year, but he actually played well in the playoffs.  But still, its time to be fully committed to a youth movement.  We'd have enough veterans with Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Kronwall to have a balanced lineup with experience and youth.


He moves like he's 44.  Ric Flair is in better shape than him.  


I'd buy a Cleary jersey if he boarded somebody and went "WOOOOOOOOooooooooooooo!!!"

He's not 37, he's 34.

#2424810 Report: Red Wings out on Lecavalier - signs with Philly 5@4.5 per

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 02 July 2013 - 04:08 PM

As much as I would liked to have had Vinny.  Had to be the 5 years thing that rubbed our management the wrong way.


Oh well we move on.


Not completely gutted by this.


Ya I'm not really buying the $5 mil thing, unless they felt he wasn't trying hard on defense. 5 years is too long for him imo.


Still won't stop this place from erupting though.

Filppula's team.

#2422049 Wings interested in Weiss

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 25 June 2013 - 02:13 AM

I know most of us have our reasons for not wanting Filppula back, but for being lazy? That's a first.

Since it's Eklund, it means that the Wings and Flyers are NOT pursuing Ryan.

Posted by dropkickshanahans on 18 June 2013 - 09:18 PM

I wonder qhat he thinks about the wild getting slaughtered in 5 games against the Hawks and the Wings almost beating them and going 7. Wild are bushleague. Wings' future looks bright


Griffs also beat the WIld's farm team in the first round.
