#2554843 Jonathan Bernier - Nelson Mandela Comments

Posted by LeftWinger on 08 December 2014 - 12:39 PM

What's your opinion on guys like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, or John Adams?

 

They were criminals against England and treasonous. I understand the reason's behind Mandela's vision, but at the time Communism was the apex of the axis of evil.  I guess what he tried to do was no different than what our fore-fathers did, just a differnet time in history. Other than that, outside of being communist, I guess they had the same goal as Mandela.  I am not saying what he wanted for equality was wrong, just that he wasn't that "good" of a guy.  I really cannot defend our guys any more than I can defend Mandela.  Thank you for making me see the similarities.  And with that I apologize for criminalizing Mandela and makes me wonder even more, how the f*** someone is so clueluss to who this guy was!?!?

 

p.s. I am not being sarcastic either, I do appreciate the eye opener today!

I'm not sure why anybody thinks it is dumb for a reporter to ask a hockey player about Nelson Mandela when said hockey player is attending a ceremony specifically to honor Nelson Mandela. 

 

If Justin Verlander attended Margret Thatcher commemoration night, and when asked said "Ms. Thatcher is the best player the WNBA has ever seen, and I loved watching her play when I was a kid", he would be a fool.  As is Bernier, clearly.

Stupid question in my mind. I mean, he knew the guy was famous and that's more than enough. Same thing here I know Mandela was famous but not why had to search it myself so a total nonstory.

 

It's like asking a hockeyplayer about a famous athlete from another sport. The guys should focus on hockey and that's all that counts, some reporters these days jesus..

 

Wait. Did you just excuse Bernier of his ignorance because you also didn't know who Mandela was? :lol: 

 

And this "hockey players" should only focus on hockey thing is complete crap, by the way. I'd expect these people to have, at least, a general f****** clue about what's going on outside of the sport. I guarantee that Bernier knows who Miley Cyrus is, for example,  FFS.

If you don't know who Nelson Mandela is then your education system failed you...




#2554764 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

It's funny that this thread is still a thing.

Kindl and lashoff need to go, andersson, and trade 2 of helm, sheahan, tatar, nyquist, jurco and one of ferraro and callahan. If marchenko sproul and oulette arent good enough to play, when and if will they play.

 

Good thing your not running the team. Wow.




#2550596 Nestrasil Waived / Claimed by Hurricanes

Posted by number9 on 20 November 2014 - 10:12 PM

I was reading on hfboards, some of them are throwing a fit about this.
Its kind of amusing.

 

Which is hilarious considering no one thought Nestrasil would ever be a Red Wing during the 2013-14 season. All of the sudden he plays 13 games and suddenly we've lost a great prospect. gimme a break.

Last year: "Holland's an idiot! Best players should play regardless of waiver exemptions!"

 

This Year: "Holland's an idiot! We lost someone for nothing on waivers!"

 

Damned if you do and damned if you don't.

Most people hadn't even heard of Nestrasil a year ago and now he has all this "potential" and mentioning him in the same breath as Pulkkinen and other prospects.

 

Gimme a break...

Why are people comparing Nestrasil to Cleary? Cleary isn't the reason Nestrasil got exposed and claimed on waivers. Cleary wasn't going to be waived, nor should he have been. Cleary brings so much more than what he shows on the ice to this team, the experience and leadership he provides, on and off the ice, can't just be replaced, and certainly not by a 23 year old kid. If not Nestrasil, Jurco would have been sent down, and maybe in hindsight that would have been the better choice. But where is all of this upside that everyone sees in Nestrasil? I just don't get it. He was a body on the ice for 13 games, a big body sure, but that's about it. He could barely crack the Grand Rapids line up last season and to be honest should have never cracked our lineup this season. It would have been nice to see him clear and provide some support down in Grand Rapids this year but in reality he probably never would have cracked the Wings lineup on a full time basis, not this year, not next year, not ever. We have a ton of more skilled guys knocking on the door, he will not be missed. We even have a player that we signed in the offseason who is similar in stature but much more skilled, in Tomas Nosek. Good luck in Carolina Nestrasil, unfortunately you will probably end up down in Charlotte after 30 days...
