I don't think that Toronto will offer him more control. They offered more control to Shanahan to get him to come to Toronto. Are they going to have a team president with more power than normal, and a coach with more power than normal? And a GM doing what? If they end up doing this, it'll backfire. Mark it.
DD is a top two dman lets be honest he makes great plays can put up points kill penalties and shut down stars if babs ever put him with Kronwall that be our best pair since Lids and Rafs Kronwall is top two to for all the same reasons his partner just brings him down
Agreed. Anybody who thinks that Dekeyser isn't a top four defenseman is nuts. The guy plays over 20 minutes a night, in all situations, against top opposition, AND puts up points. Not sure what he'd have to do to be a top four that he isn't already doing.
To be fair starting a fought during the game, and blatantly attacking someone from behind with a stick while coming from the bench, are two completely different things.
He wasn't JUST talking about fighting. He explicitly said "if other teams won't accept the fight start it anyways". Fighting someone when they don't want to fight is called "attacking" them. I don't think it's a stretch to suggest that attacking someone, with or without a stick, should probably not be allowed in any sport, at any time.
It's a little hard to take Frank seriously when he opens calls for attacking players on the ice, and then tries to condemn something which is entirely the same in spirit.
Don't attack people. It's af****** sport.
I can't believe I have to explain/defend that position.
Well deserved thugs like him are giving enforcers a bad and false reputation.
You've regularly argued that goons like Orr and McLaren should attack other players whether they want to fight or not. For no other reason than to "entertain the fans". I'm not sure your condemnation is exactly credible.
"If I'm Nonis I'd call up Orr, McLaren, Devane and Biggs tell them to do whatever it takes to give the fans some enjoyment for their money and if other teams won't accept the fight start it anyways, there are too many rats running around and fans want entertainment." - Frankgrimes
If we win one of the next two games we should make the playoffs. If we win two we should have secured the 3rd spot. If we loose....let's not think about that. Very important homestretch. I'm pumped. Let's GO Wings.
Btw I'm not so sure about starting Mrazek. I thought Howard looked at least decent the second and third period. Hope I'm wrong and Mrazek plays a great game tonight.
Lol. One overlooked misspelling changes everything. You haphazardly wrote "loose" instead of "lose". And, once written, surrounded the word "loose" with "stretch" and "pump". Thus turning your well intentioned post into extremely raunchy porn.
