What would an argument about diving between Nucks and Sharks fans look like?

I mean, that would be a mighty fine episode of hypocrisy.

And those who can't teach, teach gym.


I've never heard that one before but now that I think back to my gym teachers it actually makes sense, haha.

I agree. We have to look no further than Wayne Gretzky to see that a great player isn't automatically a great coach. I can't see Holland hiring a coach with no previous experience.

Is it a coincidence that so few successful NHL head coaches were successful players?


"Those can't do, teach."

I remember Kronwall once mentioned how hard it can be for Nick Lidstrom to explain in words to other dmen teammates how he reads the play on the ice.

I think it would be great if the Wings found a coach that already has good familiarity and history of a good working relationship with Babs and MacLean. I'm not sure if such a candidate exists but that way everybody can be on the same page faster. Therefore, I hope Babs and MacLean have a loooot of input on the replacement.

Canucks are the lesser of the two evils right now. I hate the Sharks more than the Canucks due to playoff experiences against SJ the past two years. So go Canucks until one of the teams from the east beats them.


I see what you mean. I just can't get the images of the Nucks fans after they went up 2-0 on the Wings in 2002 out of my head.

So I'm thinking "Yeah! f*** you, Sharks!" but then I realize that in turn I'm somewhat praising the Canucks. Ugh... I hate these two teams so much.

#2176702 Bertuzzi and Cleary

Posted by Red Wings Addict on 18 May 2011 - 02:33 AM

Red Wings' Danny Cleary cleared from concussion, but Todd Bertuzzi still feeling effects.
"I met with Dan for an hour this morning -- he looks great, feels great," general manager Ken Holland said Tuesday. "If we were playing today, he could play."

Cleary suffered the concussion last Thursday during a collision with teammate Jiri Hudler, who caught Cleary in the face with an elbow. Bertuzzi was hurt during a collision with Sharks forward Dany Heatley.

"Todd is getting better every day, but he's not quite over the effects of it yet," Holland said.

Cleary told the Free Press he was relieved his ordeal was over so quickly.

"I felt good the last two days," he said. "It's a scary situation anytime you deal with the head. I'm glad that I didn't have any symptoms that continued to linger. I look forward to a great summer of training hard and preparing for next season."
