#2044836 Kirk Maltby to announce he is retiring

Posted by ogreslayer on 12 October 2010 - 02:51 PM

I wish he had retired so that Ritola could have been retained, but it wasn't reasonable to expect him to do so.

Maltby's decision had no bearing on the Wings having to send Ritola down to GR & go through waivers at all. It was a decision on only being able to keep 2 out of the 3 from Eaves, Miller, & Ritola. One had to naturally assume that unless he set the world on fire, Maltby wasn't going to stay with the big club. If he had, we would have been talking about keeping only 1 out of the 3 above.


#2014902 Riley Sheahan puck-tricks

Posted by ogreslayer on 14 July 2010 - 02:23 PM

This is what has me excited most about Sheahan putting on the Winged Wheel one day. From the freep...

You noticed Sheahan's size out there," Nill said of Riley Sheahan (6-feet-2, 200 pounds), drafted 21st overall last month. "Guys take runs and bounce off him."

More of this please!

#1998150 "Detroit sucks" chant at Cup celebration?

Posted by ogreslayer on 11 June 2010 - 10:54 AM

Just further proof how insecure the Hawks "fans" are about their team...still. Pretty pathetic when your team just won their first Cup since the 60's and all you seem to care about is how Wings fans feel about it.


#1996381 Trade Cleary?

Posted by ogreslayer on 08 June 2010 - 03:14 PM

By all accounts Clears is one of the hardest working players on the team, a great locker room guy, doesn't ***** & moan about his role on the team no matter what's being asked of him on a game-to-game basis, has proven what a warrior he is by playing through a nasty groin injury in the playoffs last year & knee injuries this season, has a fair amount of skill while not being afraid of going into the ugly areas of the ice, and practically has a winged wheel tattooed on his chest after the opportunity the Wings organization gave him when about every other team in the NHL considered him a wash out... Sure, let's go ahead & trade him. :rolleyes:

OK never say never, but in my opinion the Wings wouldn't get a player back with nearly the heart & determination they get from Clears.


#1995836 Why Holmstrom

Posted by ogreslayer on 07 June 2010 - 12:43 PM

So I just had a conversation with a local Flyers fan. He couldn't believe how cheaply the Wings re-signed Homer for and was bemoaning the hometown discounts the Wings consistently get. In his own words, he would have loved to seen Homer on the Flyers for twice what he signed for in Detroit & of course thought the ~$6.2m that Nick signed for was rediculously low too. It's just amazing how spoiled two decades of winning can make a fan base...


#1964199 Lester B. Pearson Award renamed - Lindsay!

Having the NHLPA's MVP award named for one of the men responsible for the formation of the group instead a Canadian Prime Minister with no connection to the game makes perfect sense. Great move in my opinion.


#1953974 Report: Hudler released from Moscow Dynamo

"Tiny Ball of Relative Apathetic Dislike" Hudler doesn't seem to have Verbeek's passion.


"Tiny Ball of Meh?" then?

#1929830 Does this year prove that hockey doesnt belong in phoenix?

Posted by ogreslayer on 01 April 2010 - 11:44 AM

As much as I remain unconvinced that Phoenix will be a sustainable market, I think they should at least get more than one season of icing a decent team so the fans have time to catch on. If after a few good seasons no one is showing up, then it'll really show just how unlikely it is to ever catch on there.

And I'm not super familiar with the Phoenix area, but playing in Glendale probably isn't helping. It says it's only 9 miles from downtown, but feels a lot further. And there's only the 101 to get there. My memory of it is it's not really a fun area to hang out.


this ^^^

I work with a number of people who are very familiar with the Phoenix area or are there currently. From what they say, the hike to Glendale can be absolute murder, especially if you live on the other side of the city. The move & general lack of other things to do in the Glendale area has done a lot to kill off interest in going to games in that market.


#1922318 3/22 GDT: Penguins 1 at Red Wings 3

Posted by ogreslayer on 22 March 2010 - 08:35 PM

Red Wings win, Pens get chippy. Imagine that.

Someone break Crosby's face. What a crosscheck by Crosby.


Which one? He had like 6 or 7 of them on Hank. What a whiney, entitled little *****. THAT is why we hate Cindy.
