#2300748 Bettman wants to tout the "Original 12" now, haha

Posted by ogreslayer on 11 May 2012 - 05:21 PM

cant wait till his contract is up and this guy will be shown the boot. He is an absolute atrocious person and maybe the worst commissioner in all sports.

He got the owners their salary cap. He's not going anywhere unless he wants to or if he royally, and I mean ROYALLY, screws something up... Like having his sex tape with Sidney Crosby leaked to the public.

Original 12? Original 12??? If you want to brand them, call them the "Second half-dozen teams added" or something like that. NOT Original 12.


#2298692 What's REALLY going to happen this off-season?

Posted by ogreslayer on 02 May 2012 - 10:00 AM

The problem with Lidstrom is that he's not the leader that Stevie Y was. Yzerman took a steep pay cut in his salary for the Red Wings to sign players before he retired. That is the difference between a great leader and a selfish one. Lidstrom i absolutely love the man, great player, arguably one of the best defensemen to every play the game, but he needs to not be selfish. Take a page out of Stevie's book and take a pay-cut so the organization can succeed.

And near the end, Stevie was maybe a quarter of the player he used to be due to injuries and there wasn't any debate that he was no longer the #1 forward on the team let alone it's best player. I think there's still plenty of sentiment that Lids is easily the #1 d-man on the team yet & is still probably second only to Pavel as far as his impact on games. And as far as pay cuts, he's been taking them for years on end.


#2298528 Predators bench Radulov and A. Kostitsyn for Game 3 of WCSF

Trotz better wear a helmet on the bench for the next game Radulov plays.


#2292810 What's Kenny Holland's Offseason Plan?

Posted by ogreslayer on 19 April 2012 - 02:33 PM

So after this years first round ouster what does Kenny do in the offseason? As far as I am concerned its a complete failure if both Ryan Sutter & Zach Praise are not in Wing jersey's come fall. Also I would make a play for Shea Webber b/c our first round picks take for ever to come on board and also they gave up a first for a piece of junk in Kyle Quency so might as well give up some firsts for something great.

What's a fact is that this team has been in serious decline since game 7 2009 and it needs to be fixed ASAP! This team won't beat any of the other 7 teams in the West come playoffs and being is 6th seed is a damm joke!

I for one am going to be really disappointed if Kenny goes after Sutter, Praise, & Webber. Are those cheap, Chinese knockoffs of the real Ryan Suter, Zach Parise, & Shea Weber?


#2289806 The Official NHL Suspension Thread

Posted by ogreslayer on 17 April 2012 - 01:54 PM

The 'Hawks Andrew Shaw gets 3 games for his shoulder hitting Mike Smith's mask as he was trying to squeeze past him behind the net. IMO, incidental contact & he wasn't head hunting. That gets 3 games yet trying to put a player's head through the glass after the final horn warrants nothing but a $2500 fine? Oh NHL, the more you change, the more you stay the same.


#2289613 Preds not allowed to play ping pong at Joe Louis Arena

Posted by ogreslayer on 17 April 2012 - 10:04 AM

Step 1: Take away ping pong table
Step 2: Pelt the Preds during the pre-game warmup with ping pong balls
Step 3: Victory!


#2286034 I guarantee we win this series

Yeah I'm a tool for voicing my opinion

Nice to see we're all in agreement on that. Off to the next thread then...

Did the pane go for a second hit after not getting a solid one on the first?


#2285975 WCQF Game 2 GDT : Red Wings 3, at Nashville Predators 2

Throwing towels on the ice after the loss? Way to live up to your name Trashville fans.


#2283592 Shea Weber fined for Zetterberg "headslam"

Posted by ogreslayer on 12 April 2012 - 01:25 PM

So let's see if I get this...

Weber INTENTIONALLY slams Z's face into the boards/glass with the intention of injuring him. There is NO OTHER EXPLAINABLE REASON for doing what he did other than to injure him. BUT, Z was not injured. So therefore, no suspension.

I'm sure Weber was simply trying to show Hank just how clean the staff at Bridgestone Arena keeps the glass from a closer angle. :ph34r:


#2280653 Dan Cleary openly admits to being at 50%

Posted by ogreslayer on 09 April 2012 - 06:04 PM

Come on Babs, you're the same guy that had the balls to pull Hasek for Osgood during a round 1 series. Don't tell me you can't do the same with a 50% Dan Cleary. Well, not pull him for Osgood but when I think about it, maybe even Osgood would be more effective than a 50% Cleary at this point.

#2276396 Detroit has inside track on Parise

Posted by ogreslayer on 01 April 2012 - 01:13 PM

I think it'll happen either way. Here's why: As far as I know the 2012 summer UFA class is the best there's been in years. And I'm betting there won't be another great class like this in the next year or two, which means this summer is the only truly great chance we have to replace Lidstrom without losing anything other than money. Obviously a free agent signing is a better option than a trade, and Holland is going to make that push whether Lidstrom retires or not.

After all, Lidstrom's only going to be around for another year (maybe) and you still need him replaced. Better to do it now, enjoy one super-amazing year, and then already have his replacement locked in when he retires.

From everything I've seen & heard, most people are saying it's a weak FA class once you get past Suter & Parise. That's why I'm thinking the Wings get neither. You'll have a bunch of other teams willing to overpay them & kill their team's salary cap management in the process and that's not something Kenny's been willing to do in the past. Personally, I think Suter ends up back in Nashville after the team has a good playoff run this year & Parise ends up signing for big money somewhere not named Detroit.

As per Bob McKenzie on Twitter:



York/Hunwick tandem? Oh my...

I would pay good money to see an entire game of Homer screening Hunwick.
