I am surprised and find it interesting that so many people in this thread listed the Blues. You would never see them listed by so many people in a thread like this in previous years I am wondering the reasoning behind that?
Is it just because you ignored the advice of everyone since before the start of the season and still chose to underestimate them? You're mad they did so good this season? Did they f*** up your fantasy league or something? lol
All reasonable Hawks fans respect the Red Wings. The fact that you guys get so butthurt about a retarded Detroit Sucks chant just shows that it gets under your skin exactly as planned. You know why Chicago chants Detroit Sucks? Because the Wings kicked our asses for decades. It's a sign of respect whether you realize it or not.
Haha, thats great! You should work as a spin doctor for the politicians!
I like how you tried to spin that around and put it on us. Calling Detroit fans butthurt, when in actuality it is exactly the opposite, hence the reason that in Chicago they chant "Detroit sucks" at not only hockey games, but other events now as well. Chicago "fans" define butthurt. Not to mention, I have not seen all this "butthurt" by Detroit fans that you describe. Unless you consider pointing out how retarded it is, and how butthurt it makes THEM look, to chant "Detroit sucks" at games that have nothing to do with Detroit and events that have nothing to do with hockey.
I also think the "respect" angle is cute too. Thats like me saying you are a retarded c*** or something, and then trying to say "oh, I meant that as a sign of respect" LOL
Nothing says 'Im a Beer Drinker' like drunks swilling beer with full slices of orange floating in their pint glass!
As much as I don't like blue moon either, at least a fake white with a orange slice in it has a bit of flavor. I'd consider people drinking fruit laden blue moon a lot more of a "beer drinker" than the people who like to drink corn flavored seltzer water and call it beer. Which is, unfotunately, like 95% of the "beer drinkers" in this country.
I'm not sure what the big deal is and why people are so offended by him here, maybe he reminds them of some bully or type of person they couldn't deal with in their personal lives.
Avery a bully? LOL
I think its the exact opposite. Avery is the type of person that will talk s*** and try to instigate a fight, but then when you are like "OK, thats enough *****, lets go" he runs away. To put in in real world terms, he is the type of dude who would start a fight at a bar and then run and call the cops when you hit him. Or only fight you when he was with 10 of his buddies. Or the kid in the school yard who wants to talk trash and push other kids, then when he gets punched in the face for it, he runs crying to the teacher.
To put it bluntly, he is a cowardly little *****. People don't tend to like people like that.
I believe it. Down here in Toledo, while we have the Walleye and the nice new arena and family atmosphere now, I remember the Storm days where people attending a game pretty much expected to see a fight, and see the boys kick some ass.
Especially thinking you were going to get traded, having this come out, and having to face your fans and teammates.
His teamates obviously already knew. If the fans get all pissed just now, over this one specific announcement, then it just proves that they're idiots who don't really know anything about hockey. As pointed out earlier, he has a NMC, so the fact that he was being shopped with the NMC is exactly the same as him saying "I want out". So it should have already been obvious to everyone that he asked to be traded.
Play-wise, its a good game from both teams. But as far as officiating goes, its an example of the reason so many long time NHL fans think that the NHL these days is a complete joke.
Its also an example of why I hate watching nationally broadcast NHL games, becasue you are guaranteed to see a bunch of questionable calls (and even more questionable non-calls) that seem to be for only one purpose; to keep the game as close and "exciting" as possible. Its like the refs in the nationally broadcast games are under strict orders from the NHL to keep the games within a goal and make sure they make calls (and ignore other calls) to guarantee the game stays as close as possible.
Marian Hossa, for choking us out of 2 cups in a row.
While I will be the first to admit that shady reffing played a significant part in the 09 loss, one cannot forget the fact that Hossa played an equal part in the loss after falling into an apparant coma on us in the playoffs following his fantastic regular season that year.
