#2200878 Kris Draper announces retirement

If true, thanks for the memories Kris...the best thing ever bought for a dollar....

#2200575 Osgood should(n't) be included in the HoF...

Posted by ogreslayer on 23 July 2011 - 11:14 AM

He was never flashy enough to call attention to himself & was never considered "the best" when playing in an era with Roy & Brodeur. Despite that though, he's 10th all time in wins, has a GAA better than 6 of the top 10 (including Roy btw), & the 2nd best winning percentage of the top 10 behind Brodeur & slightly ahead of Roy. That says HoF worthy to me.

#2200322 Detroit Fans Have Turned Ugly

If in saying that Detroit fans are getting uglier, he meant this:

Then I might agree with him :D

#2199768 Grade Holland

Posted by ogreslayer on 20 July 2011 - 09:45 AM

C or D
Commodore and White were good signings. Besides that I'm not happy because Holland didn't take advantage of the fact that every player in the NHL wants to play for the Red Wings and with less money they'd get elsewhere.I don't have an opinion on what he should do next. Maybe trade Hudler for a scoring top six forward and buy out Ericsson.

Really? Really? I seem to remember a certain former Hab, now Blue Jacket, that damn near everyone on LGW wanted Kenny to sign who went on NHL Live & said that Detroit's unwilling to pay people market value & that's why he signed for big money in C'bus. So I guess you'll want to change that fact to "every player minus one".

Kenny gets a B/B- from me for locking in Lids, Eaves, White, Commodore, & Conks at the prices he did & saving cap space for later instead of spending just to spend. Would be a B/B+ if not for the overpayment on Big E though.

#2198707 nashville's new home jersey

Posted by ogreslayer on 15 July 2011 - 01:48 PM

That shade of "yellow" makes me think they need to drink more water.

Would that be considered a piss poor comment? :yowza:

At least they didn't go with the brown mustard yellow from their thirds from a few years ago so the color switch is a small upgrade. The jersey is still too busy though with the keyboard on the inside collar & the piping and horns coming off the collar. (or whatever you want to call them)

#2198291 Judge rejects NHL deal with Molson-Coors:

Posted by ogreslayer on 13 July 2011 - 09:49 AM

^- I can't wait for that sponsorship. :D

Vitamin pee, the both of 'em. No idea why people buy stuff like Bud, Corona, Labatt, Molson, and Coors. I can't even make myself like them.

I reply to this because the topic itself is rather confusing to me. I guess if the league signed one deal for exclusive sponsorship it obviously wouldn't be legal to do another, hence lawsuit.

All of those are beers for beer drinkers when they're not drinking beer. Even worse are the "lite" varieties. I've had stronger tap water. Give me a pint or 12 of Guinness any day.

I hope Babcock never finds out. You know how much he hates Americans :ph34r:

#2197365 Red Wings Name New Assistant Coaches

Posted by ogreslayer on 08 July 2011 - 01:58 PM

Me likey...

From mlive:

The word Blashill used more times than any other is “process.” It seems to be at the root of his philosophy and how he coaches. He believes in going about things the right way ultimately pays off. During his time as an assistant at Miami of Ohio, Blashill helped develop the RedHawks into an excellent penalty-killing team, a reputation they still hold today. His penalty kill is not an overly aggressive one, but rather a read-and-react kill which emphasizes positioning. Defensively, Blashill implemented an aggressive style and continually preached winning puck battles and digging pucks out at the boards, and spent a good amount of time in practice working on those things. Offensively, Blashill valued puck possession more than anything. His offensive schemes differed depending on the opponent, but Blashill preached continually about the importance of not committing silly turnovers.

Anyone made any jokes about Kane and cab drivers yet?

Patrick Kane's mean face for you bringing up that incident again...

#2196847 Is there a problem with Babs?

Posted by ogreslayer on 06 July 2011 - 10:41 AM

I think these CBC player polls tell you all you need to know about Babcock:

Which coach would you most like to play for?

Which coach is the most demanding?

18% said they'd most like to play for Babcock. That was second to only Bylsma who had 21% of the votes.

In the next poll, 24% said Babcock demands the most from his players, second to Tortorella, who had 28% of the votes.

Yes, I would trust this much more than someone saying "a buddy of mine said" without having specifics on where it's coming from. Without sighting sources, that's as good as me saying that a buddy of mine told me that ex-players are bad mouthing Babs for his penchant for wearing a pink tutu & tiara in the locker room before games.

#2196408 Wings looking to sign Drury?

Posted by ogreslayer on 05 July 2011 - 10:11 AM

Hmm, how much would it take to sign your dog, and is he/she injury prone?

Remember, a 1 year contract would actually be 7 in dog years & those pure breeds suffer from hip dysplasia a little too much for my liking.

#2196260 "We feel good with the people we have," Holland said

Posted by ogreslayer on 04 July 2011 - 07:37 PM

You do know, the same people that ***** every year about the Wings spending up to the cap & not leaving room for trades at the deadline will be the same ones bitching if Kenny doesn't spend up to the cap before the start of training camp. At this point, I'm happy rolling with this roster into the season & see what opens up on the trade front until the deadline. No need to rush imo.

#2194177 Wings sign D Mike Commodore to 1-year, $1m contract

Posted by ogreslayer on 01 July 2011 - 02:08 PM

The signing was just to give Babcock someone to verbally abuse on a regular basis right?
