Biggest joke of this whole thing is that Rielly actually had to apologize for it...Don't like what he has to say don't read it and move on.
 
Man the media in Toronto really has to make a story out of everything


What if he said "Red wings fans are poop"? Am I just supposed to not read it and move on simply bc I don't like it?

To me this is exactly the problem.  Holland appears to be briliant because a few of the talking heads identify that "this is the year the Wings don't make the play offs" and his teams continue to make the playoffs. 
 
That said he builds the best teams and better than anybody else that relies virtually entirely on the draft.  He builds a skilled, determined team with guys that have character.  Holland has always gotten the most of the draft.  But just making the playoffs every year is bad when it becomes obvious that your team is not built for the playoffs & when you autopsy the season and look at everything the forwards have to do defensively because the D us under served it is not favorable.  This is where we are at.  FA's think we are too far away so guys that Holland is willing to overpay a bit go to Washington; or they take less than Holland was going to pay to go to pitsburg or with the exception of Danny who is from the area and played with Nill's kid and was brought to the Joe his whole adult life to meet Nick & walk through the dressing room they choose to go to Edmonton (Shultz, whome the Wings wanted).... when  your number 2 D (is number 2), and you don't address this players take note.  When you are unsuccessful in over 6 years to bring in a guy to help the team & to steward the tallented guys coming up it is a failure. 
 
Who cares about making the playoffs every year if it handcufs your ability to assume risk where it is meaningful.  Legwand was not meaningful.  I don't see anything meaningful this year & I don't hold him accountable for that.  What I hold him accountable for is failing 6 years in a row to supliment his skilled drafting and player development. 


Guess you missed the memo about retooling instead of a rebuild. And the retool finally seems to paying off.

If he dominates in GR that should prove he deserves a scoring role with the Wings

#2572587 Does Kenny Hate Mickey?

He's an enthusiastic color guy who sounds like he's had a few.

 

Like I said, you don't know what a drunk is.

Right, she's hot, but she's super high maintenance and kind of thinks she's better than everyone, but deep down there's good in her, she's just complex.


America doesn't have a girlfriend. We only know Freedom.

Careful now, can't say anything bad about Mickey or you're a hater who doesn't know anything and is just speculating and you better list 50 examples in detail of why you think the way you do.

 
More passive aggressive hyperbole? I expected nothing less.

If you want to exaggerate my point to make your whole "He sounds like a drunk" spiel seem less completely off-base, go right ahead. I think most members here can see through that sort of thing, as much as they can see that Mickey is an enthusiastic color guy, not a guy who sounds drunk.

I get it, it's sacrilege to say anything bad about the best announcer EVAR!!!! because he's been in the booth forever.  That doesn't change the fact that by the third period he sounds like you're sitting next to him in a bar.  He's not as good as he used to be, and a lot of times he seems to fall into complaining about the refs and weak penalties, chuckling when the Wings get away with something he'd yell at the refs for, dropping a catch phrase, complaining about broken sticks, and waxing nostalgic about the good old days when you showed respect for another guy by "feeding him some lumber" when he was going to hit you.  He's better between periods, but during the game I think he's slipping.  If you disagree, or want to just say "It's Mickey and he's awesome and if you don't like it go piss up a rope," fine.

 

BTW, Madden was bad his last couple years, and Pat Summerall was the boozer in that duo.

 

Those are your words, not mine. But I must say, you have a knack for exaggeration.

 

So complaining about the refs and broken sticks, chuckling when the wings don't get called, using a catch phrase, and talking about past hockey? I'm starting to think you don't know what a drunk is, or at least what one sounds like.

#2571598 Next Number to be retired

Dude, Mathie Dandenault transported back to the 1950's would be the best player in the NHL. Doesn't mean he's better all time than Richard or Howe.  Babe Ruth is the best baseball player of all time, precisely because he was ahead of his era and better at his era than anyone else at theirs.  

 

He was ahead of his era probably because African-American players were barred from playing in the same league as him.

Hard to say, but I don't mind saying I am a fan of Dan the Man.  He's a good dude.  He could scare all the other broadcasters off, with his scary  zombie eyes.  :shocking:

 

My girlfriend always says he's got "husky eyes" like the dog
