#2458313 Looking for advice/attending a Wings home game

Posted by The Greek on 26 November 2013 - 04:01 PM

Greek town is your best bet as far as hotels go. You can just take the people mover to go to the games. Will you have transportation? Are you comfortable driving in unfamiliar areas? If the answer to these questions are yes, I would recommend you check out some of the suburban downtown areas. Detroit is great, but there are other areas that have lots to offer.

Not sure what he does anymore, really. 
He's not even at a level of an appendix in which it's useful at some point but then a lot of times you just gotta take it out. 

So, you're saying this team needs a Quincendectomy? Count me in.

It'd be nice if Babs would notice the chemsitry between Tatar and Franzine and put some loyalty in the pair.  I'm afraid he will probably just randomly juggle the bottom three lines with no rhyme and reason for the next couple years. 

For real. The only reason he put Tatar on the second line was because alfie went down.

#2453738 Patrick Eaves on Waivers

Posted by The Greek on 14 November 2013 - 06:45 PM

According to Ted Kulfan, Eaves found out he had been waived from reporters. If true that really sucks.

If true, then I'm ashamed to be. a wings fan. These are people they're dealing with. Once Kenny made the decision, he should have called eaves before filing the paperwork or whatever formality puts it into motion.

#2453736 Cleary in, Tatar out against Caps

This article analyzes Tatar's Corsi rating and the ratings of of players he skates with. Bottom line, this does not make any sense. Is there really not a single player who is more deserving of time I'm the press box? I'm not usually one to speculate, but I'm really beginning to think Babs dislikes Tatar.

I fully understand the desire to have him in the game. Yzerman is one if my favorite players of all time. But, the guy has repeatedly said he does not want to play. I really don't like the idea of this petition. He doesn't owe us anything. This petition will only put pressure him to do something he does not want to do. Why are your desires so much more important than his?

Edit: Also, you made an account here just so you could get more people to sign your petition. You're using the forum and its members to further your own selfish goals.

Damn, Z and pav are awesome.

#2451504 Chicago fans steal players helmet off head and dump beer on him

Wish the players would have started swinging into the crowd like they did back in the day

Yes. That definitely would have made this situation better.

If I was as drunk as he appears, judging by the look on his face, I would almost certainly have done the same thing. That's why I don't drink very often. I'm a lot of fun up to a point.

It seems like jimmy gets better, season to season. He seems to be different from those flash in the pan goalies.

It's called setting the tone.

Oh, thanks. I thought it was a meaningless, staged fight.

I always thought the Emery hate was overblown. He proved me wrong. That was absolutely gutless. He got shellacked 4/15 shots, he should be embarrassed. Put that effort into your game. What a clown.

If you say it slow enough, it sounds like "pass to z."

#2447691 What's Killing Our Offense?

Posted by The Greek on 24 October 2013 - 09:33 PM

None of those guys are here yet, thus why we are in the spot we are. The chances that all of them turn out is very small. maybe 1 or 2 will turn out into a star, but that is about it. Most will never be anything more than role players and career AHL types.

I agree. It seems we have been doing a far better job of drafting and developing defensemen than forwards.

#2445848 McLeod suspended 5 games for hit on Kronwall

Posted by The Greek on 18 October 2013 - 11:14 AM

It really looked worse than it was, and Kronwall did put himself in a vulnerable position. However, mckleod has a duty to anticipate Kronwall's change in direction. Furthermore, he didn't let up or attempt to change direction, himself. Two games would be the right call. Then again, I'm not familiar with mckleod's history. If he has been in this situation before, then he deserves more. It is important that you anticipate a pkayer's change in direction. At this level, a guy is not going to stay in a position that opens himself up for a hit. A player may make a mistake, but he will typically compensate by turning or moving. The onus is on the player making the hit to anticipate such a move.
