#2278856 Tortorella Slams Orpik, Crosby, Malkin,...

Posted by vladdy16 on 06 April 2012 - 12:37 PM

I kind of want to know what was said, even though I'm pretty sure I read the post and didn't think anything of it. I drop quite a few bombs around here, well, frankly because I'm an adult and I should be able to. Just kind of curious what's crossing the line and what is not. As a matter of fact, pretty sure I dropped 4 four letter words after last night's game.

Heat of the moment usually is fine. Casual conversation should be kept respectful. It's only polite. Whether you're an adult or not, as most of us are, is immaterial. Matt has asked us all to be judicious in the use of curse words is all. Dropping an F bomb in every other post is going to get edited or deleted, and it's silly to lose posting privileges over it.

I will leave this conversation here as it is helpful, but any further questions or concerns please handle via the PM system so we don't completely derail this thread.

I'm sorry, but that really is how much I love Torts. Got a man crush. I shall now refrain when unneeded!

I get it. I've been known to use colorful language - I'm not against it. It should just be used sparingly is all. The word "freakin'" works pretty well for me. Feel free to use it. :)

I like that I got negged for effectively saying I couldn't believe we needed a shoot-out to beat the Florida Panthers. My thanks to the ***** responsible for it. :clap:

Yes, of course bring him back ... and put him into the front office for a cushy job like Ozzie and Draper.

#2274160 The reason The Wings shipped Mike Commodore

According to my friend (the one who date's Dan's sister) Dan is making a decision on Thursday! Of course this just after Holland decides to send Smith back to GRR in favor of a less talented Kindl. That doesn't show Dan much confidence that Holland seriously wants him in Detroit, but only to play in GRR for 4-5 years first. Holland is going to shoot the pooch on this one with the way he has handled Smith. If Danny signs somewhere else it will be all Holland's fault in the way he handles his players. Say what you want about Holland and his supposed best GM in the world status, but he definitely messed up by sending Smith down and not just sitting Kindl. He better hope that Danny wants to be a Red Wing so bad that he is willing to pass up instant NHL play to sign here and be stuck in GRR until he has no more options to be sent down...but I doubt that will happen. Danny will sign somewhere else, become a star and Holland will still be considered the best? This is what I laugh at. A combo of Smith and Dekeyser would be much more physical and productive that Kindl/Ericsson. I certainly hope Danny wants to be a Red Wing REALLY bad!

Also, Dan's mom likes what Burke is saying in Toronto and now Philly and Calgary are involved in wanting to sign him...along with Tampa still. He said Dan told him that he wants to play in Detroit, so I hope that he chooses here. But he could be a millionaire in one of the other cities and be playing NHL NOW, but not so much on a 2-way contract in GRR. I don't get Holland sometimes, Smith has done more in his short time here than Kindl has done his entire career...well, at least this year.

All I got to say is Holland best not miss out on this one....

EDIT: Not that I am saying Danny should be in the lineup now with Smith, but there is no way Holland should let Dekeyser go somewhere else and he should ditch Kindl over the summer and have Danny be one of the constant call ups all season long. But the prospect of being buried in GRR for 4-5 years cannot be too attractive...

Wow! Really? Someone thought that this update deserved a neg? You got problems son... Do you think that Kindl is better than Smith? Honestly I think the same user negs me everytime they see me post...that is what drives me nuts and why neggers should be held accountable to explain their neg...

What does the team do when Ericsson returns?
Will he play forward for the remaining of the regular season?
