Do you think Brunner will be back next year? Ar you happy about this? I really am a Brunner fan bigtime, even though he isn't really all that good except for finishing. I kinda think he's like the anti Filpula, who is pretty good at a lot of things except getting it done. What kind of contract would you offer him?
I think fair is 2 years 5 million! He will be back and will be better. Also he will get more ice time next season maybe beside datsyuk
Dont like this guy. Never have. But damn. He has answered the bell since DeKeyser went down. Not one person has badmouthed him on here in 6 or 7 games, and the Wings are doing pretty darn well with him at the #6 slot. Good job Carlo. Keep up the steady play.
If that call would have been against the Wings and disallowed our tying goal.....the Detroit river would have ran red with blood and Royal Oak would have burned to the ground.
Hell im a 41 year old aown bizness owner and like to think I have my s*** together but when Mule was boarded and Hawks scored I threw a bottle of grey goose across my yard into me naybors pool!!!
Yes we like to think we are the classiest fans but c'mon....we are more fanatical than anyone about our team and If****** hate the hawks fans with a passion and love sticking it in the heart and twisting it...f*** em, pile on dont stop, if you havent trolled a Hawks fan you really should!!!!
So much for that "the hammer and the nail" analogy by the Blackhawks beat writers. If Howard stays strong, and we keep our composure and let idiots like Bickell and Shaw take as many penalties as they want to screw their own teams, we're in good shape.
Hey Crawford, considering your first full season wasn't until 2010-11, I think you are just talking out your ass...btw he should watch this video....(from the other thread....)
My favorite part of this video is the overhead views where Homer looks down at his own feet and is beyond confused why the call is happening when there is white showing between his skates and the blue paint. Second favorite thing is Babcock's "I'm laughing because I want to murder your soul" face.
The Joe was amazing last night! Hoarse voice this morning was totally worth it. I was happy while watching the replays that you could hear us so well, especially after Miller's goal when Quenneville had to yell to be heard over our revelry.
While we were leaving after the final horn, a massive "Let's Go Red Wings!" chant morphed into "We Want The Cup!" Even some of the vendors joined in and were pounding on their countertops. Absolutely electric!
No. We need Cleary he's pissing them off immensely. We need all our fourth line. Pk masters. Our third line is dominant. So that leaves Abby fil franzen or pav or z. Soo no. I love toots. But Abby Cleary smith big rig will enforce next game. Q will stay out of it because of his jaw. Hence not dropping the gloves hen getting manhandled after the whistle last game. Maybe he's not as dumb as he looks.
I love Tootoo. Heck, I named my new hamster after him. If that's not love, what is?
It's not that I don't want to see Tootoo, it's that I don't see how putting him in would improve what we have.
Our first and third lines are pretty much untouchable. That leaves the second line, where he doesn't belong, and the fourth line, which consists of Eaves, Emmerton, and Miller.
Emmerton is the weak link on that line-and I'm in no way saying that he's been bad, just that he's not as good as the other two- but he's a centre. If Miller had a history of flipping between centre and RW, I'd say, "why not?" But that's not the case.
Also we have the Todd and the Shinguard Assassin in the press box as well. I'd put them in before Tootoo.
If someone goons things up and we need Tootoo's skill set, by all means, put him in. If (God forbid) we get injuries, I'm glad he's there. As it stands, as much as I love him, there just isn't a place for him that can't better be filled by someone else.
I'm a big toughness and fighting guy. But absolutely not, you don't win the Cup by fighting guys like Bickell and Shaw. You win the Cup laughing at those 2 dummies continue to screw their team by taking dumb penalties. Keep composed, and this series will be over quick.
It may be homerism, but the more I watch that disallowed goal, the more I agree with it. He didn't touch Howard, but Howard has no way to be in the right position to make that save. If his crease was open, he would have come out to cut the angle off on that shot. Good call.
It will be tough trying to explain that to my Hawks fan friends though...
