To be clear, i am not alleging that the Captain had anything to do with this decision, but it is an absolute embarrassment to the Lightning organization as well their fan base. I guess once expansion teams enter the picture this type of behavior exists.
While TB's policy is nothing short of retarded - has anyone here other than myself been to a game in Chicago while wearing your Red Wing jersey?
Hawks fans can be pretty classless turds toward visiting fans.
While looking at the Franzen trade bait article I came across this gem. It says what the dumb move each team made this offseason is, and apparently the Wings' 1 bad one is not signing Ryan Suter.
Article for Wings part:
Yes, Detroit had no power in where Ryan Suter chose to play next season, but the price for Suter not signing in Detroit will be heavy for the Red Wings. With the retirement of Nick Lidstrom and departure of Brad Stuart, the Red Wings' defense is now led by Niklas Kronwall. No offense to Kronwall, but he is a huge step down from the likes of Lidstom and Suter. The Red Wings needed to bring in a replacement and they couldn't. For the first time in a long time, things are not looking so good in the Motor City.
I bolded my favorite parts. Their 1 dumb move is something they had no control over, and apparently Kronwall is a huge step down from not only Lidstrom (understandable...who isn't?) and also Suter... I call BS on the 2nd one.
Figured i'd comment on the Wings one. But since things are so slow with CBA talks at a halt, let's hash over all of them...
