#2595182 All Purpose Grand Rapids Griffins Thread

Posted by Nightfall on Yesterday, 07:54 AM

I have been watching the Griffins all season and they really are on fire right now.  This team is going to make some serious noise in the playoffs.

Hicketts is only 18-years-old (19 in May), anyway. He'll be spending another year in the WHL for sure, then jumping into the mix the situation clears up down there on defense.

Good for Bertuzzi. Jump in, score a goal.

Bert's goal is @ :40 of the second period clip. Definitely a soft goal, but I'm sure he'll take it.

Nosek's goal in the first period was a beauty. Great assist on Porter's goal in the second period, too.

Didn't like the player, but appreciate the couple of seasons he had where he was the go to guy on this team.  More importantly, just because someone isn't liked as a player, doesn't mean he is not respected as a man/husband/father.  That I do.  Get well for your kids and yourself, hockey is nothing compared to family.  It has to be hard because that is all he has known since a little boy, and hanging em up early has to be a real hard decision.  That being said, and as much as I believe he should LTIR retire, I also believe he will attempt a comeback next season to see where he is at, but with the years of problems he has had, I don't think it will turn out in his favor as a player.  He'll always be part of this team, and always be remembered as the player that dominated the 2008 Stanley Cup Playoffs helping the team win the Stanley Cup.  That is his legacy, and nothing, not a forced LTIR retirement or a loudmouth, fly off the handle, talk too much out of his ass forum user (MODS, am I aloud to verbally attack myself? :lol: ) can change that or take that away.  But one more hit can take away your livelihood and precious time with your children.  Good luck in your life and good luck if you attempt to come back, but mostly, and this is coming from that loudmouth user, Thank You for those few magical years and Thank You for the 2008 Stanley Cup!  Goodspeed Johan Franzen, you will forever live in Red Wings lore!

Damn that is sad. Mule shouldn't be afraid to hang em up and live his life. Wings fans will support him. We love you for everything you've done for this team Mule.

Can't believe there's people here actually bashing Yzerman.  So he didn't want to wait for Kenny to leave. Instead, he goes to Tampa, builds a good team and gets a 1st round pick for Kyle Quincey.  You gotta love it.

Updated round 2 with Little Bert eliminated, Hickets 1 game from elimination and Mitch Wheaton back form long injury.

Just listening to the NHL network fawn all over Tampa who hasn't won a damn thing in 10 years, talking about their experience and their speed. Just amazing to me. When the Wings are down they are too old, when it's playoff time the Wings are young inexperienced, and too easy to play against. I understand they haven't set the world on fire lately, but this team is a 100 point team. Please believe that the Red Wings aren't a good hockey club. They will run right through you.

I remember when Ozzy was never good enough, Hasek was a has-been, Yzerman was washed up with a bad knee, Fedorov was a money grubbing prima donna, Chelios was too old, same for Fetisov, Larionov was too frail and fragile, Shanahan was getting too soft, these new kids Zetterberg and Datsyuk weren't ever going to fill the shoes of the heroes before them.


Man...those were the days.

I will love Steve forever. What he did for this city defined my childhood. Still, I don't see how anyone can actively root for the enemy. 
Just a little emotional about the whole thing. Especially because our chances aren't incredibly high.  :baby:

No one is rooting for the enemy. We're just not ripping Yzerman. TB has players for that.
