#2483868 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by sleepwalker on 14 February 2014 - 12:53 PM

It truly amazes me how idiotic some people are acting about the players participating in the Olympics.  First the Pav thing, now this.


Hank's back has been injured for a couple years now, its been an ongoing thing.  Anyone who follows the Wings knows this. If he hadn't tweaked it in the Olympic game, he would have tweaked it in the next Wings game.

Can someone message me a link to a stream if possible? 


Our cable company is feuding with the company that bought our local NBC, so we don't get NBC anymore.  :(

If he plays in Sochi while still a bit injured, unlike most people here, I completely understand.


Russia is the host country of the Olympics, and Datsyuk has been named the captain of the Russian team.  That is a HUGE deal. 


Of all the hundreds of thousands of professional hockey players in the world only TWO single players every DECADE get that honor.

#2478951 The Hudler Factor

Posted by sleepwalker on 30 January 2014 - 01:54 PM

No, I don't miss him.  He wasn't a good fit here, and was often a detriment to the team due to his small size and getting constantly knocked off the puck by everyone else on the ice.


But hey, Sammy and Quincey were OK here and then left and we brought them back only for them to suck.  Maybe it'll  be the opposite with Hudler.

What does any of that have to do with him being black?  Sounds like some racism coming out on Dabura part...

#2471923 Cleary should be suspended for elbow to head

How come when our guys get frustrated and lose their cool now they just end up doing dumb s***. 


What happened to the Wings of a few years ago?  When those guys got frustrated, they came at you hard and physical, but clean, and used the anger as motivation to put up a few points. 


Now they just either give up, or do stupid s*** and take penalties and dig their hole deeper.

They were protesting against shirts and pants.

Gotta love that extreme embellishment by Fiddler after he thought that it was a Wings stick that tapped the top of his helmet.

And the Wings get scored on yet again due to an absolutely horrible call. 


I'm glad the announcers at least took the time to show the replay and state how absurd that call was.  And called by a ref 100 feet away, in a snow storm, with 3 inches of snow on the ice no less...  Ridiculous.


Those are the exact type of calls that spawn all of the conspiracy theories fans like to throw around.

#2466010 Engelland suspended 5 games for Abby hit

Posted by sleepwalker on 18 December 2013 - 04:31 PM

Gotta love the special treatment the Pens always get since they are the league darlings.


Thornton, a first time offender gets an absurd 15 games for a gloved love tap, while the Pens players never seem to get more than 5 games, despite the fact they are repeat offenders for dirty HEAD shots, the thing the league always claims they want to get rid of...

#2464779 Thornton suspended 15 games.

Posted by sleepwalker on 15 December 2013 - 11:44 AM

In response to Detroit #1 (cause the quote function is still broken for whatever reason for me)



Not only that, but the league feels that this is 15 games, but Emery attacking someone the same way except with gloves OFF, which is worse, is worthy of zero games.  The league is a complete joke when it comes to suspensions.

#2464124 Shawn Thornton attacks Orpik (leaves game on stretcher)

Posted by sleepwalker on 13 December 2013 - 07:46 PM



Neal only got 5 games for his knee to the head, which was way worse than what Thornton did, so anything MORE than 5 games for Thornton is a joke.





Edit:  though the NHL in general is a complete joke when it comes to discipline, and their complete hypocrisy when handing out discipline, so I fully expect Thornton to get 10, maybe more.  We'll have to wait until Shanny spins his wheel of justice to see what happens.

#2462570 Shawn Thornton attacks Orpik (leaves game on stretcher)

Posted by sleepwalker on 09 December 2013 - 06:12 PM

If Thornton gets more than 5 games, it just once again proves what a complete joke the NHL is, and how hypocritcal they are.


Lets be real here, Thornton didn't even drop the gloves, he just caught Orpik just right with a gloved hit and briefly KO'd him.  The only reason everyone is making a big deal out of it is because the brought in the stretcher.  Players throw punches to each others face with gloves on literally every single game at some point.  


Neal should have had the book thrown at him.  That knee was such a digusting and dirty play.  Thornton was out of line too, but Neals hit was WAY worse, IMO.  The intent from Neal was nothing other than to seriously injure. 


Lets also not forget that the reason Thornton went after Orpik was because Neal immediately after kneeing Marchand in the head, ran to the bench like a gutless coward so he wouldn't have to go with any of the Bruins.  If Neal stays on the ice to face the music, Thornton goes after him instead.
