#2602926 Kronwall suspended one game

Joke of a suspension

#2600737 Brian McGrattan

McGrattan takes one lick to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop

#2600017 Brian McGrattan

There was a street named after him, but they had to change it.  Nobody crosses Brian McGrattan and lives.


McGrattan doesn't flush toilets, he scares the crap out of them.

#2600016 Knuckles vs Numbers - The death of the enforcer

He once made love to the loch ness monster, raised its children as his own and re-released them around the world.
When asked why he said "I know what its like being a dinosaur."

Intangibles and heart =/= goon. Give me a couple guys like McCarty, Lapointe, etc who can actually play the game and will fight and I'll be happy. I have no use for a guy like Orr who can't take a regular shift.

#2596548 J Ericsson - really?

Posted by DickieDunn on 19 April 2015 - 09:10 AM

Strange thing is he was pretty good when he was younger. Than just dropped off or something. Or other teams gang up our D because, with the exception of a few, none of them seem to handle pressure well

Do you recall who his d partners were? Lindstrom and Rafalski

I don't recall this Lindstrom guy, but Ericsson didn't play with Rafalski. He was generally on the 3rd pair. Lidstrom-Rafalski, Kronwall-Stuart, Ericsson-XXXX

#2593817 Boston GM Peter Chiarelli fired

Posted by DickieDunn on 16 April 2015 - 11:15 AM

What high standards? They didn't make the playoffs. Maybe if we didn't make the playoffs Holland would be gone.
Don't know what the pizza-induced coma comment is about. You know that he's dealing with colon cancer. And, also, you know that Ilitch's son took over long ago.

Most people here would call this season a success.  Most Boston fans wouldn't.  And they only finished a few points behind us.  That's why I'm saying they have higher standards.  So did we at one time when we were Cup contenders.  They've been Cup contenders for the last 5 years.      
Holland would not be gone if we missed the playoffs. Ilitch will never fire Kenny.  Neither will his son.

In playoffs, out of playoffs. A few points matter.

#2593338 Why so negative?

Wings go to eleven.
I hate warm beer.

Some beer is better at room temperature and is served that way in Europe where crap like Busch Light isn't popular.

Wings in 6. Filppula disappears, the Lightning D is a seive, and Mrazek wins the battle of the young goalies.

#2593057 Brendan Smith

I honestly think the Wings didn't look enough into his character and (lack of) intelligence before they used a first round pick on him.
While it's tough to get a totally accurate read on an 18 year-old kid from Combine interviews, talking to coaches, etc., I'm sure the signs of immaturity were already there before draft day.

Because most 18 year olds are mature

#2592647 The Future

Posted by DickieDunn on 12 April 2015 - 12:08 PM

Larkin is the best bet to be a #1 center.  If they have 2 high end wings, they can get away with a bit lesser center, like the Ducks had with Kariya-Rucchin-Selanne, but I'd feel better with a better center than Sheahan.


With Mantha, Larkin, Athanasiou, Tatar, Nyquist, Jurco, Sheahan, they should be able to come up with 2 pretty good lines though.

#2592195 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by DickieDunn on 11 April 2015 - 11:07 AM

Lots of guys work their asses off.  That doesn't mean that they're good hockey players.  And who cares about celebrating Colton Orr, he's not a Wing, he's never been a Wing, and never will be a Wing, and on top of that he sucks.  If you like goons so much, I suggest you just follow Brian Burke around and root for his teams.  He seems to be the only one who still thinks goons have a place in the league.

#2592194 Team next season?

Posted by DickieDunn on 11 April 2015 - 11:05 AM

Weiss's value in Detroit is going to be heavily dependent on what Babcock does.  If there's a new coach who will play him at center with some skilled players instead off where ever there's a guy out of the lineup, Weiss is going to provide value.  If Babcock is back and he's going to keep using him the way he is now, Weiss has very little value and needs to be moved for whatever they can get.

#2592033 Will Wings Revisit Signing Phaneuf?

Posted by DickieDunn on 10 April 2015 - 11:46 AM

I think that the only way Phaneuf is coming here is if the Leafs retain a good chunk of his cap hit, which they've said they won't.  He's a good player, but that contract is poisonous, about $2 mil too much and too many years.

#2591870 Is A First Round Exit Imminent?

Posted by DickieDunn on 09 April 2015 - 11:32 PM

Kings have played more hockey than any other team plus they've lost their Voynov replacement and are playing in the toughest division too.

Wings lost a ton of stars and kept going. Kings lose one guy and miss the playoffs.

I am a die hard wings fan, have been since the north stars left MN. If howard starts in goal, series will be real short! Just got to be honest, he hasn't done anything else but prove that his inconsistency has gotten worse over the last few years and it's time to get rid of him.

What's Mrazek proven?

#2590635 3 point advantage games need to be eliminated

Posted by DickieDunn on 08 April 2015 - 01:21 AM

3 for reg win, 2 for ot win, 1 for ot loss. Better is win or lose period.
