#2327492 Red Wings Sign Jordin Tootoo to 3-yr deal, $1.9M/yr

Posted by rrasco on 01 September 2012 - 01:18 PM

This is from the season before last and a perfect example of how he suckerpunches guys when he drops the gloves.

Ha. I actually like that. Don't skate up in my face if you're not ready for it. If you wanna go, let's go. I'm not gonna stand there and chirp about it...do the damn thing. Tootoo threw a good hit, Reaves took exception to it. He came looking for trouble and he found it.

Don't get me wrong, I understand the whole not-drilling-a-defenseless-player-while-he-is-standing-there thing, but to me, Reaves was the aggressor in this situation and he was getting ready to do his own thing. He got what he had coming.


#2327107 Alright. How good are we going to be this season?

Ummm....what season?

LOL...people do realize this was posted in April, right?


#2313155 Chris Conner going to Phoenix

Posted by rrasco on 02 July 2012 - 06:22 PM

Haha, yeah, I watched him down here in Texas too! When they Griffs played the Rampage, everyone was like: 'Who's that little guy?' Then I'd say 'Hey! Oh, you're not talking about me? Oh yeah, that's Conner.'

I always liked Conner, wish he had more of a chance here, but so goes life playing in the Red and White. Best of luck to him!

#2311125 The Grass Is Always Greener - Johan Franzen

How many of you give 100% effort at your job 100% of the time? How many of you have played a sport, tried your damndest and things just didn't go as well as you wanted? It's a sport. It's an exhausting sport. Not all your shots will go in. Not everything always works. And sometimes you get lucky.

I understand it's frustrating when you feel like someone is not trying, but for what he provides and what he is paid, Mule is an absolute steal. He's not going anywhere, no matter how many times people suggest it on these boards.

If he started skating, back checking, and generally stopped playing like a ***** he would get paid more. I wouldn't have a problem with that at all. I don't think anyone would.


No he wouldn't. He's getting paid the same no matter what now, that's how contracts work. That is unless, of course, he has bonuses in his contract, but I'm too lazy to check.

29 goals for a sub $4M player? I'll take that everyday of the week and twice on Sunday.

Those are some expensive tears.


#2310441 How much would you give up?

LOL @ Eklund.

Meh. The Sarah McLachlan parody was funny, but I wouldn't describe it as awesome. Awesome will be epxerienced when Parise and Suter actually sign.


#2308780 Trade Ian White?

Posted by rrasco on 22 June 2012 - 01:20 PM

Regardless of what people think of him, we are already down 2 dmen, we can't afford to get rid of another one unless we have a replacement lined up. Who are we going to replace him with, Kindl? As it is, I'm worried about the Lidstrom and Stuart replacements.

Perhaps Pav will just finish his contract and then return to Russia to spend more time with his daughter. Poo.


Shut your filthy mouth


#2308559 2012-13 Detroit Red Wings Schedule

Posted by rrasco on 21 June 2012 - 07:29 PM

I'd say the January 30th game against Montreal sticks out as a possibility. Wednesday night so Versus/NBC Sports would show it, Original Six, pump some life into the schedule before all-star break.


That didn't work so well this year :/


#2308454 Forums Upgraded

Are you using adblock? If so, that might be the issue. (Skyscraper ads are the only thing in that column -- 160px body and allowing for a 20px margin on the left side.)


Ah yes, I always forget ABP actually works. I knew you wouldn't have just left gaping whitespace for no reason. ABP is now disabled on this domain to support LGW.
