#2556778 Where were team-mates on the Smith headshot

Posted by Reteeks on 14 December 2014 - 03:38 PM

Never mind the team mates to the rescue, where were the refs on a call that should have been a major? NHL officiating the worst in professional sports.

Smith was actually the best fighter on the ice at that moment.  

 

But yes, the Wings don't stand up for teammates enough.  The Weber on Zetterberg play is a great example.  The league is now about having smaller middleweights who can play hockey and fight.  We don't even have those on this team, for some reason.   




#2556915 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by number9 on 15 December 2014 - 03:15 PM

 
Right. I knew there was something I didn't get. Thanks for pointing that out.
 
I'll defer to your wisdom. Mike Green would be an excellent #2 Dman.


According to some Kronwall can't handle #1 spot either

any interest in Wisniewski?  I know he has a modified NTC and would probably have to submit a list of teams or something, but instead of blowing the wad on a #2 guy, maybe spend a bit less on a better #3?
 
Don't know, I am just looking at the bottom dwellers and seeing who may be looking to make a deal...speaking of bottom dwelling, WTF happened to Colorado?


Highly doubt we show any interests after his comments about Detroit's management.

#2555984 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by kipwinger on 12 December 2014 - 01:38 PM

Better than dreaming about him reupping here and then be disappointed when he signs with a contender. With this strategy I can only be positive surprised as it was the case with Pasha

 

Are you saying that you intentionally believe unlikely things, so that when they don't happen you're happy about the surprise? 

 

Because it sounds like you are. 

 

In which case I wonder, why stop there?  You could believe a whole host of horrible (and unlikely) things and then celebrate your good luck when they don't happen.  Here's a couple...

 

1.  I'm going to get eaten by a shark tomorrow.

2.  Next Thursday my house will be poisoned by radon. 

3.  Racoons will abscond with my cat.

4.  This year, I really will get a lump of coal for Christmas.

5.  I'm probably already possessed by Satan (or perhaps some lesser imp).

Don't wedding rehearsals only really matter for the bride, groom, maid of honor, and best man?  The key is to be the third in line, and then just follow the guy in front of you, stand there, and look handsome.  You really don't have to do anything else. 

 

EDIT:  Ahh, he is the groom.  I guess you sorta have to be there then.  Be sure to take your smart phone though.  I mean, don't wedding reherseals only really matter to the bride and her mom anyway?

Hope the guys play up to this team and don't coast.  We need to maintain the excellent play standards and get us some more points!

 

Fridays suck when you have to work, but if I have to -- so do the Wings.  LGW!!




#2555923 More Mantha stuff.....

Posted by krsmith17 on 12 December 2014 - 06:55 AM

It's likely Mantha probably did say something like this, I've heard many of his interviews and it does sound like something he would say. However, I don't really get the point of this thread... It could have easily been added to the already existing Mantha thread, and without being able to provide a source, it makes even less sense to post.

 

Anyhow, Mantha should start the season in Detroit, if he starts in Grand Rapids, Ken Holland is a moron. He is that good, he definitely doesn't need time to adjust in the minor league...... :ninja:

Do you think Mrazek would do better coming in cold.

No to gus though, if we threw him in his icey groin would be torn into oblivion

I remember watching him play when I was a kid.  To this day he's still the best athlete I've ever seen.

#2554823 Jonathan Bernier - Nelson Mandela Comments

Posted by ogreslayer on 08 December 2014 - 12:19 PM

 

Right.  Did he not google Mandela on the way to the event? 

 

Ohhhhh, you know what it is.  He probably forgot to look it up, and couldn't on the way to the event because everbody knows that smart phones still don't exist in small provincial Canadian towns like Toronto. 

 

By answering the way he did, Bernier pretty much just said, "I am completely ignorant as to who who this guy is & was too lazy to look up even the most basic of information on him.  I am only here because I was offered free tickets to the game.".

 

If only the reporter had responded with...

 




#2554819 Jonathan Bernier - Nelson Mandela Comments

Posted by kipwinger on 08 December 2014 - 12:07 PM

I'm not sure why anybody thinks it is dumb for a reporter to ask a hockey player about Nelson Mandela when said hockey player is attending a ceremony specifically to honor Nelson Mandela. 

 

If Justin Verlander attended Margret Thatcher commemoration night, and when asked said "Ms. Thatcher is the best player the WNBA has ever seen, and I loved watching her play when I was a kid", he would be a fool.  As is Bernier, clearly.
