#2572628 Do we need to add grit?

I'd pay a lot of money to see the scared look on Phaneuf's face.  Unfortunately, I've never seen that side of this photo.

#2566202 Larkin or Mantha?

Posted by Hairy Lime on 27 January 2015 - 06:17 PM

I think a better question is Tatar or Nyquist. Mantha and Larkin fill different needs, Tatar and Nyquist are redundant.

Scoring goals is never redundant.

Hey, if you think Mickey and Jack Edwards are similar that's fine.  I disagree. 

I never said they were similar, but Mickey loved a good scrap, enthusiastically; and if you listen to him, he subtly mourns the lack of team toughness without coming right out and saying the team is soft. 



If so, Redmond's adapted to today's game while Edwards still thinks Cam Neely's about to take the next shift.


Also, apparently you've never noticed that Ken Daniels doesn't call other team's players "hacks".

Mickey has sorta been forced to. He calls Red Wings games; not a lot of hitting (at least on our part) or fighting. But when one does happen (rarely), what does he always say? "Attaboy! Not one person in their seat! They love it!", to paraphrase. He loves old time hockey as much as the rest of us neanderthals. 

#2562274 McGratton on waivers

Posted by Hairy Lime on 10 January 2015 - 03:41 PM

I'm confused about one thing when it comes to frankgrimes and GMRwings1983 and whoever else there is that dies for fighting and goons that don't have a clue how to actually play hockey... You're all very aware of the fact that Holland wants nothing to do with guys like McGrattan, a "player" like that will never be employed by the Detroit Red Wings, so why are you still fans of such "weak", "pussified" team?... I'm not telling you you shouldn't be a Red Wings fan, but I'm just curious as to why you are?...

Probably because we grew up Red Wings fans and they've only become "pussified" in recent years. I'm not going to stop rooting for a team because they're a bunch of *******, but I certainly have the right to mourn the loss of team toughness. And I don't necessarily want a talentless goon; I'd settle for Chris Neil, Matt Martin... even Lucic, or Proust. Anyone who actually still knows how to throw a check or stand up for a teammate will suffice.

I would not have minded giving a part-time roster spot to Big Ern, as opposed to Andersson. He's probably (slightly) more talented than Aaron Downey, and I don't think having Downey in the line-up in '08 ever hurt us. In fact, he brought a little more excitement to games and added some much-needed toughness.


I don't think I've ever seen a softer hockey team than these current Wings. Maybe in peewee. MAYBE!

Time to goon it up! 

#2539190 10/9 GDT : Bruins 1 at Red Wings 2.

Just to get you pumped up - 


Actually, that kinda depresses me when I look at tonight's 4th line... 

#2537716 Are the wings underrated?

Posted by Hairy Lime on 29 September 2014 - 08:32 PM


Yes. If we had beat Chicago I still believe we would have won the cup or at least had a legitimate chance to.



A team that can't close a series out after taking a 3 games to 1 lead has no business winning the Cup, and probably wouldn't have.

No, I'm not crying; I'm laughing!!!

How dare you people imply that Ehrhoff did not want to sign with Detroit. We are the premier landing destination for free agents!!! Shame on you! 
Just waiting for Niskanen to sign with Washington or Toronto...

What is that supposed to mean?

I was kidding. I haven't let WWII go yet. I tend to hold grudges for a long time, even if things happened before I was born. Don't even get me started on the Romans. 

#2517530 NHL lacks class.

"Class" is a big reason Detroit was eliminated without so much as a whimper. 

#2514650 Bertuzzi in, Jurco out

Babcock finally showing a little intelligence. Bruins have been manhandling Detroit's forwards in front of Boston's net; put in a guy they can't manhandle. I don't understand why anyone would have a problem with this. If you can't score goals, you try something different. I'd put Cleary in, too, if he could play, and I hate Cleary. All the kids look out of their depth right now. Boston's defence is a bad match-up for them. They would probably be lighting it up if we were playing Pittsburgh.

If I didn't hate St. Louis so much, I'd be elated right now.

Olczyk is holding back the tears. Let it out, Eddie; let it out.
