#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?

I want a Vanek. Someone to bury the effing puck when we desperately need someone to bury the effing puck.


We have Sammy, what else do you want?


#2439093 Bertuzzi Needs To Retire

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 26 September 2013 - 07:52 AM

Bert has plenty to offer still....we'll want him during the shootout and the first time Orpik or Phaneuf lays out a speedy newbie forward of ours.

Next article will be Sammy talking about how he's not comfortable being a regular roster player.


#2433786 Gustav Nyquist loses puck from his first NHL goal

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 21 August 2013 - 09:24 PM

He's a very promising young player but still needs to work on his puck possession.


Bahahahaha


#2433674 New enemies, whom do you fear the most?

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 20 August 2013 - 03:50 PM

I fear Grand Rapids the most....they take our talent and leave us with Sammy and Bert pretending to be roster players.


#2433657 Wings sign Nyquist to 2-year, $1.9m deal ($950k/yr cap hit)

Tell me this leaves Cleary in the announcer booth now....

Bahahaha, how do you explain to your teammates that a "big tough hockey player" gets hurt playing golf?


#2432515 So the consensus on Shanny's #14 is a no?

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 05 August 2013 - 02:23 PM

i think the fact that nyquist has been wearing 14 is a pretty clear indication there aren't really plans to have it retired..
 
I really wish feds had a better ending to his time here though, he deserves 91 retired.


We are saving the 91 for Stamkos....


#2432206 Blackhawks selling melted ice from Finals

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 01 August 2013 - 08:28 PM

Maybe Datsyuk could sell his "snot rockets" that he's always blowing on the bench.....


#2430701 Um, OK, not really sure this'll have the desired effect

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 18 July 2013 - 06:06 PM

I bet it smells like R Kelly's sheets.....but hey, it was 99 cents. I fear most of you will not get this reference.


#2430186 Brendan Smith signs 2-year, $2.525m contract with Red Wings

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 15 July 2013 - 03:30 PM

Now turn into Lidstrom....


#2430097 Brunner Contract Talks

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 14 July 2013 - 09:44 PM

Maybe the money had little to do with it and he just wanted a team that would give him top line minutes.


#2426766 Dan Cleary Watch

Posted by turbowhistle86 on 05 July 2013 - 12:18 PM

Because Nill knows that he's not worth it...maybe he'll make a reminder call to Holland.
