#2578046 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by TheXym on Today, 05:33 PM

The Leafs short bus is comedy gold.

Someone at TSN is going to lose their job over that if they haven't already. Maybe the live tweet feed on TV will stop after this.

I hate twitter. HATE it.

#2573763 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by F.Michael on 23 February 2015 - 01:49 PM

 

For everybody except those who formerly felt entitled to degrade and undermine those they found "lesser".  They long for the days when they could say whatever they wanted, whenever they wanted, and nobody would object.  Because heaven forbid people universally condemn these idiots.  That's "overly PC". 

 

Not that we have any of those folks around here. 

 

 

People have opinions - whether you agree with them, or not - they're still entitled to them.

 

For you, or anyone else to chastise them because of that - does that make you any better than those who you're condemning?

 

I agree it was a poor decision by Rielly to associate girls/women with how pissy/moody his Leaf team mates are acting, but it's these sorts of issues that create such an uproar  make my knuckle-dragging-neanderthal  brain hurt.

Let me give you an easy example: what would happen if people who are offended that others are offended did the same thing and complained in groups about the "offended party " ? That's right a never ending circle of being offended that others are offended...it would be so comically chaotic and stupid at the same time.

 

Maybe it's just me and I'm too relaxed for stuff like this it just doesn't bother me.

 People get offended over anything in todays ultra 'pc' society we live in.

 

That said - wonder Rielly will be on the trading block.




#2573609 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 February 2015 - 07:12 PM

It's too bad that's all Mcgrattan can do

 

One look from this face would make Benn pet Zetterberg's head rather than punch it.

#2572505 Do we need to add grit?

I would love, love, love to have Clutterbuck on this team.  




#2571186 Are the Wings a Contender?

Posted by Detroit # 1 Fan on 16 February 2015 - 06:45 PM

Then the score so is wrong it shows the wings at 5 and Pittsburgh at 4.

 

The overall standings don't matter for the playoffs anymore. It's a divisional playoff since last season. 1 in the conference plays the lowest of the wildcard teams, 2 plays the highest wildcard. 2/3 in the division play. So as of now it'd be MTL/BOS, TB/DET, NYI/WSH, AND PIT/NYR.




#2570938 Next Number to be retired

Posted by GoalieManPat on 15 February 2015 - 12:49 PM

13 and 40 both. They're generational players.

 

While being great players neither are in that echelon of the others who had there numbers retired. They are like Shanny only Shanny has 3 cups. Just because they are the best players of this generation of Wings doesnt mean they are all time greats. 




#2570276 Nasty Business-Roussel ejected for cross-check to McQuaid's throat

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 12 February 2015 - 12:26 PM

I guess this is as good a place as any to link this Mike McKee article.  According to the article, his 2 points in 24 games, and one penalty per game average, is apparently "proving wrong" the people who doubted he could become a productive player for Western.  Lol. 

 

Yet more proof that really huge guys can mesmerize idiots.

Yet more proof that you got bullied by enforcers when you played hockey.

 

I don't buy that whole "Craig Coxe didn't sign my autograph" story.   ;)




#2569873 So, Evander Kane...

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 11 February 2015 - 03:12 PM

 

IMO, this will make the Sabres a worse team this year than before the trade...

 

...which is exactly what they want.  They want to win the race to the bottom to better their chances at McDavid.

 

They pretty much would have done that without the trade.  It just doesn't really make sense from their perspective, especially giving up that late 1st rounder in what is supposed to be the deepest draft class in years.  Without that pick the trade is only slightly lopsided in Winnipeg's favor, but man does it ever seem like overpayment on Buffalo's part...




#2569801 Nasty Business-Roussel ejected for cross-check to McQuaid's throat

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 February 2015 - 12:59 PM

If he did that to Lucic, this thread would be titled "Hero Roussel ejected for cross check to Lucic's throat"

 

An elbow is one thing.....Getting a cross check to the throat is something entirely different .

 

And yes - Howe only had 2 fights if I remember correctly...He was 1 guy nobody wanted to mess with.

 

I think Gordie had more than two fights.  It may be that only two fights are remembered or recorded somewhere. Otherwise, he had only one fight besides Fontinato.  That might be right, but it doesn't sound right.

 

I mean Lilja had way more than two fights.   




#2569790 Nasty Business-Roussel ejected for cross-check to McQuaid's throat

Chris Chelios was notorious for hitting people in the face with his stick.  Come off it everybody.  You want to talk about "old time hockey"?  Here you go.  Stick work.  As old timey as it gets. 

'Old Time Hockey' would've seen a line brawl with Roussel getting bloodied...Surprisingly nothing happened immediately after that.

 

I have some fond memories of watching Chelios getting his ass kicked by Gerard Gallant, and by a few others as well.

 

Chelios wasn't as tough as some would like to think...His only fight victories came up against guys like Fedorov, or Robitaille, but like you said - he was known more for his cheapshots.




#2569528 Great Brandon Prust Article

Posted by WeBleedRed on 09 February 2015 - 08:27 PM

Went to school with him, and am friends with a former team mate of his.  He is a nice guy though and through.  I'd love to have him on Detroit.  He's the type of guy who works for his minutes, and isn't pissy if he doesn't get them.  Grit, and being stable in the mind (180 of someone like avery).
