#2330737 Who can tell me something about the Red Wings

Posted by MabusIncarnate on 05 October 2012 - 12:26 AM

All you need to write on the paper is Pavel Datsyuk. Period.

I don't see how you can't get an A+ for that.

It would appears that just like the NHL this thread has reached an impasse. Maybe if we would have started to argue in January we would be done by now.

I like where your heads at, but there is no way I am unfollowing any of them. I like to hear what's going on and unfollowing all the players, agents, and gm's would do me no good.

I like to pretend this was in Colorado.

The major melee ensued at the 18:22 mark, leading to the third fight. Shortly after a collision between Red Wing center Igor Larionov and Avalanche forward Peter Forsberg, Wings enforcer Darren McCarty seized the chance to avenge his Grind Line teammate by escaping a linesman's grasp and hitting Lemieux with a right hook from the side. McCarty laid many blows on Lemieux, who fell to the ice and covered his head (labeled "turtling" in hockey terminology); McCarty managed to land a few more punches, drag Lemieux to the boards, and knee him in the head before the two were separated by officials.

It was at this point that Colorado head coach Marc Crawford unleashed "The Foot."

It's embarrassing reading your ignorant responses.

Clearly none of you are business majors.

And look at this English major's wet dream. Posted Image Ignorance must also be bliss here.

Cheese guys, can we stop with all the cow puns?

God it's weird to see Radulov wearing the "C" on a team with Datsyuk on it. It's like bizarro world.

I find either side stupid if they use the "they should be grateful" card.

The players need owners to run the league and the owners need the players to play in the league. Both sides need the fan support to make the league viable.

Both sides are stupid, and I think Jimmy was way out of line with his comments.

You know what was weird. I turned on the TV yesterday and there was this game on where a bunch of guys ran around in the grass playing catch and hugging up on each other. I thought they called it foosball? I don't know, it was rather weird, but without a hockey game to turn to, I just kept watching.

Flipping it, to 43% players and 57% owners still seems like a good deal to me. That's still a huge chunk to the players, but you have to remember the owners still have to pay coaches, scouts, doctors, vendors, trainers, administrators, insurance, marketing and maintenance. Imagine if doctors at a hospital demanded 50% of all revenues?

The percentages have no meaning unless we know what all the clubs expenses are. Without this information now can anybody say what is a good deal or bad deal for either side.
And maybe 50% for doctors is fair. I have no clue.

But the clubs did sign players to certain contracts and now they want to basically renegotiate them. Players agreed to this once and now owners are coming back for me. Unless players have the desire to keep giving back every few years they have to resist.

Lets take Datsyuk for example. 24% rollback would turn his $6.7M into about $5M.

There is a different between cattle and people, cattle can't leave the ranch.

I like it that he spoke honestly. The part about this whole thing being way too complicated for the average Joe to understand was a bit condescending, but maybe I'm over-estimating the average Joe.

I do agree that the owners run the thing, but owners have to take their employees into consideration. If this was the players just demanding more money, I'd be on the owners' side, but this is about the players getting paid what the owners have said they will pay them.

Good read, even if I didn't particularly like what was said. It's nice to hear someone just answering the questions rather than going all PC.
