#2674784 Official - Little Caesars Arena

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 01 May 2016 - 04:30 PM

Except for that little fact where we (taxpayers) paid for half the arena. So, we should be entitled.

Entitled?  Easy Bernie.....


since you feel entitled to half of the naming rights, you can have the "Arena" part and the Illitch Family can have the first part.

#2606683 Things you would like to see for 2015-16 Season

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 08 May 2015 - 08:26 AM

I'd like to see more than 7 effing playoff games....

#2601385 WCQF : (6) Minnesota Wild vs. (2) St. Louis Blues

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 27 April 2015 - 07:29 AM

What the Blues need is a nice pair of prime Detroit products, like Ericsson and Franzen.

#2574753 Patrick Kane, out anywhere from a month to rest of the season

Cabbies everywhere have just breathed a sigh of relief.

#2542117 Pavel Datsyuk update?

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 18 October 2014 - 11:58 AM

Funny story....if you want a Datsyuk update, we just saw him in a black Mercedes SUV at a stoplight outside The Joe! His shoulder is apparently fine, as he was able to wave back.

#2536628 Who should get cut/traded by game 1 of the season?

#2534241 Holland signs 4 year extension with wings **MOD Warning Post 130**

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 14 August 2014 - 11:38 AM

But do you lose players like Lidström, Rafalski and Stuart over several years and still do absolutely nothing to bolster the defense?


We should thank our lucky stars that hometown DeKeyser fell into Holland's lap or our defense would be an absolute s***fest.

It's real easy if you choose to do absolutely nothing.


Being an active GM on the other hand is incredibly hard.


Its not like the guy scheduled a two week vacation to the moon and skipped free agency the last few years.  There's plenty of info that suggests he kicked a ton of tires, made several intriguing offers, and in most cases those players chose not to come here for various reasons.  He's not soley to blame for our recent downturn.  You don't lose people like Lidstrom, Rafalski, and Osgood and replace them all right away...in some cases you may never be able to replace talent like that.

Bickell can go fly a kite....but Seabrook would be nice for the right deal.

#2530881 Kane & Toews Sign Identical 8-year, $10.5M AAV Extensions

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 09 July 2014 - 04:38 PM

this is cute.....why don't they get married while they're at it and then they can punch cabbies together?  There's no way Kane is worth that money! 



and don't get me started on Toews' playoff beard......



#2529787 Hollands new contract a no brainer?

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 03 July 2014 - 02:08 PM

Holland is the no-brainer, not the contract.

this lack of action from Holland is making want to go watch another lack of action......world cup soccer.

#2524869 Brad Richards bought out by Rangers

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 20 June 2014 - 01:19 PM

Trade Weiss and Kindl for Edler (they will need a center when after they trade Kesler) and sign Richards and Stralman.
















love the thought but that's far too much paperwork for Holland to comprehend......so let's give Cleary another 3 years and call it good.

#2524797 Wings officially have vacancy in asst coach spot

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 20 June 2014 - 09:21 AM

How many of the good or great coaches past or present are former star players?  I don't know why so many fans think that good player=good coach. 


Chelios has a cushy front office job now.  Why would he want to go through the grind and travel demands that come with being a coach?  Same with Lidstrom.  He left because he wanted to return to Sweden and spend time with his family?  Why would he want to come back and coach? 



Cleary!!!!!!!  By that logic......mediocre player=great coach.

Does anyone else think Don Cherry is significantly retarded?
