#2610638 The return of The Mule?

Posted by Jacksoni on 27 May 2015 - 11:08 AM

I agree that he probably should retire, but we're missing one point here which is that it seems that he wishes to go one more round.

He has been working out and been upping his regimen steadily. Last couple of weeks before we got our heads chopped off in the playoffs he skated with the team when at home.

People in Sweden that knows him have mentioned that he wants another go if possible. Guess we'll see what happens at preseason.

Easily the worst part of the late start games is waiting all damn night for them to start!

Without our resident Shark killer Franzen, I feel I must invoke YFMB.



We need the points and coming out of the west with this win would be very, very Osgood. (To state the obvious.)

Pretty amazing, Mikey.  You can go flex in a mirror and say, "Yeah, I'm that awesome."  Well, you could, but I doubt it's your style.


Score early and often, Wings.

Look I've had countless posts just disappear on me. Seriously I've lost track, it's that many. And from what I've read other posters have had similar issues.


It isn't an isolated issue, it happens all the time.


And again from other posters as well as my own experience, other forums aren't like this at all. It just doesn't happen. Except here.

Maybe you could make up some stats that keep track of why your content gets deleted. For example,


PIO - Personally insulting others

BAW - Bickering after warning

ALD - Acting like dick

TC% - Trolling content %


Just off the top of my head...

#2538666 Blast from the Past

Posted by Son of a Wing on 06 October 2014 - 11:04 PM

So I was going through a bunch of my Dad's old things and stumbled upon one of his NHL contracts from the Red Wings lying in between the pages of an old program.


I've never seen an NHL contract before (let alone from the 70s) and thought it was interesting and that I would share for others interested as well.


The salary and bonuses give an interesting perspective in comparison to today.  The average salary (according to the HHOF) in 1970 was $18,000.

Fun Fact: Bettman used the tears of fans in his ice bucket challenge. pic.twitter.com/qUeXmQz8oX


Since he's proving to be such a good sport, I nominate Gary Bettman for the #NextTimeTheCBAExpiresStartTheSeasonOnTimeChallenge

#2531588 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Ugh, does anyone know if we have the ability to change usernames?   :paperbag3:  

#2531104 Wings re-sign Cleary $1.5 mill + $1mill in game bonuses

Posted by Euro_Twins on 10 July 2014 - 03:48 PM

i give up.
not following the team this season.

At least one good thing came of this...

I really hope Cleary just goes on ltir all year again. But I know he will be in the top 6 for a while, I didn't want to believe it was possible. I guess I just like to give #fireholland the benefit of the doubt too much.... Well we're done until Alfie is ready to sign

Edit : auto crocodile sucks today

#2530652 Red Wings Target Mike Green

Posted by kipwinger on 08 July 2014 - 04:13 PM

Hell, sweeten the pot and give them Glendening or Andersson for the trouble and you might bring the price down a little more. 


Fact is, they'd be helping us out by trading us Green.  But we'll be helping them too.  He's expensive, his cost/benefit ratio is probably not better than their other top four defensemen, and they need forwards that they don't have money for.  If they can get a decent prospect or two and a pick OR a low end (cheap) roster player and a decent prospect, they'll be making out.  If they expect to get an up and coming roster player (Nyquist, Tatar, Jurco) or a top end prospect (Mantha, Sproul, Ouellet) they'ref****** nuts. 


Those would be fair. I could also see Pulkkinen + Jensen + 2nd/3rd.


I just wouldn't be that surprised to see Tatar traded either.


I wouldn't be surprised to see him traded either.  But if he was traded for Mike Green on an expiring contract then Ken Holland should be drawn, quartered, burned, buried, exhumed, drawn, quartered, and burned again for being af****** toolbox.

Dale Weise has re-signed with Montreal for two years.

Too bad he'll only see one of those years, since Milan Lucic is going tof****** kill him next year.
