I understand that it's The Way of the World now, but I am not a fan of big, long goalie contracts. There is no denying The King is a superstar, but even he is human and capable of s***ty, inconsistent play.
That being said, if they don't have an extremely reliable second option in the pipeline, the Rangers would have been insane to let him walk away.
@georgemalik: Red Wings off-day news: on the Alumni Showdown training camp, Drake, Avery, Babcock and Kronwall http://t.co/8L9cRes2VJ
Ok, so I'm gonna quote myself because now I feel like bitching about this.
So in the link above, Kypreos refers to Kronner as "not a number 1."
So are you telling me that he truly believes there are *30* defensemen in this league right now that are better?! I don't get this not a number 1 bulls***! He is no Lidstrom. NO ONE CURRENTLY PLAYING IS. There are maybe 10-12 defensemen that you could justifiably rank above Kronner.
Then how is he not number 1 material? There are 30 teams! Do the other 29 all have better #1s than the Wings?
TALKING ABOUT THE WEBER INCIDENT MAKES ME WANT TO YELL
Seriously, I can't remember another incident in recent memory that has infuriated me the way that one did. Like Mike Tyson "I'm going to eat his kids" and not in the sexy way kind of infuriated. Like Mike Tyson "I want to bite off Weber's ear and spit it back in his face" kind of infuriated.
