Interesting quote... "I've had some people reach out to me," Holland told the Free Press today, "but as of right now, I haven't expanded the list."


"Sorry Babcock, you've made your decision.. now you have to live with it."

"But keeeennyyy!"

:P

These crazy immigrants coming to the US popping out babies just to get citizenship.  Sheesh.

 

I'm kind of thinking that it has more to do with the fact her physician is likely here and they've mentioned many a few times they plan on residing here after his retirement.  The citizenship rules are somewhat broad and pretty much anyone can play for any country with any kind of distant connection to a country.

Its bananas.
Someone actually gave Babcock credit for turning datsyuk and zetterberg into the 2way players they are today.
"(Insert random d man here) will be better because Babcock will use him all the time like he uses smith,"
"Panik is a bigger version of Tatar,"
"Babcock will make so&so elite defensively and his system will also make him score more."

Its absolutely ridiculous how I'll informed these people are.


it's a good thing I was already pooping when I read this

And he didn't even cry he was close to it (maybe very close) but that's just what real men do, you are close to crying but you never do in front of a lot of people.

I balled watching school ties in high school, I hadn't slept in a few days, but it got to me.
I may not be a "real man" but I drink, I work, and I cuss when I think...
And I pay my bills.
so I might be.

I also cried like crazy when my grandpa died, and I saw my grandma cry for the first time.
It Broke my heart.



I have faith in babs and shanny, but I don't really want Toronto to become good again.
Its too funny watching them suffer in mediocrity.

I know plenty of "real men" that cry. It's called emotion and it doesn't make you any less of a man because you cried in front of people. That's just something people say just to say it.

#2609650 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

#2609641 Slava Fetisov: Giant Hypocrite.

Posted by kipwinger on 22 May 2015 - 10:28 AM

Slava Fetisov, former Red Wing defenseman and star of the wildly popular documentary "Red Army", wants Russian law to ban Russian hockey players from coming to the U.S. before their 28th birthday. 

 

You'll recall Fetisov's story.  He bucked Soviet law preventing him from coming to the U.S. to play hockey, by refusing to play for their national team.  In the documentary he explained how he wanted to be free to make his own decisions, make his own money, and determine his own future, without being coerced by federal authorities. 

 

And now he's a federal authority.  And he's trying to restrict young players from having those very same liberties. 

 

Here's a thought Slava.  Rather than using a draconian legal system to force people to stay against their will, how's about you work toward reforming said legal system, and equally restrictive and authoritarian economic policies, so that people will WANT to stay in your s***ty country.  You are, after all, a Senator. 

 

What a dick.

Good players still need a good coach to steer them all in the right direction.

 

 

What's that? Put pucks in the net? Try to win the game?

...and butt pats.  BoS for COACH!




#2609600 Dylan Larkin turning pro... will play for GR immediately

Posted by jimmyemeryhunter on 22 May 2015 - 06:47 AM

I have high hopes for Larkin but to think he is going to make the Wings squad next year is ludacris. He needs to adjust to the AHL for a full season or two. It will be interesting however how he fares against the toughest competition of the AHL off the bat!

Top 6 go-to guy in Grand Rapids >>> Bottom 6 support guy in Detroit - (in regards to what is best for his development)
 
Develop this kid the right way, don't rush him like we did Jurco. I understand that there is a huge difference between Larkin and Jurco, but Jurco was also a year older than what Larkin will be going into camp this season. He wasn't ready and neither is Larkin in my opinion.
 
Let's see what he can do in the next few weeks, but even if he puts up a point per game, I still say he should start next season in the American League...

Probably fair points, but if he can come in and start learning the NHL game without any hindrance to his long term development, I want him learning from datsyuk and Z as long as he can.
