I wish Tangradi would get a 10-game stretch on the Wings' 4th line. Let's see what a big body with some snarl can do on this team.

#2650417 Players Tribune: John Scott A Guy Like me

Posted by frankgrimes on 28 January 2016 - 07:18 PM

I've seen this posted in the All-Star thread butI think it deserves it's own thread because the ASG thread will be full with ASG talk saturday.








But at the same time: this isn’t Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I’m not some random person off the street, and I didn’t win a golden ticket to “play hockey with the stars.” I won an internet fan vote, sure. And at some point, without question, it was a joke. It might even finish as a joke. But it didn’t start as one. It started with a very small pool, out of a very small pool, out of the very, very smallest pool of hockey players in the world: NHLers. That was the vote. A fan vote, an internet vote — but a vote from among the 700 or so best hockey players in North American professional sports.

And I’m one of them.

If the league thought this was an embarrassment, pretty much all of the players I’ve encountered have thought otherwise. I’ve gotten texts from so many guys saying the same thing: “You should go.”

And that didn’t happen because of the internet. I busted my ass to be one of them. I’ve skated every day since I was three years old to be one of them. I’ve persevered through Juniors roster cuts, Alaskan bus rides, Advanced Dynamics exams, and — yes — fights, to be one of them.

But I’m one of them. And that means a lot to me.

It means a lot to my family.


So when someone from the NHL calls me and says, “Do you think this is something your kids would be proud of?”

… That’s when they lost me.



Goes to show you what a bunch of mean spirited, disgusting idiots the NHL has in their front-office and what a SOB Don Maloney was in that whole situation. I hope the players help him score some goals as a big F U to the NHL.


I'm also loving the phrase " a guy like me" - whatever people may think about John Scott and his role the fact is, he is one of 700 NHL players, period. If some suit wearing idiot would have told me on how to be a dad and what MY kids might be proud of I don't know if I would have responded as friendly as Scott did, so huge kudos to him.


Smart and great guy NHL needs more John Scotts and less idiots in their headquarter.

#2643300 Adam Oates being brought in to help PP

Not sure how I feel about this move.  We're already pretty deep at center and Oates is past his prime.

Remember that time he blocked a shot with his face though? That was badass.

Yeah, but do you remember the time he blocked that shot with his face? That was badass.

#2639170 Ferraro on waivers

Posted by Internet.Unknown on 24 November 2015 - 12:47 PM

Look on the bright side, at least we've still got Pierre Turgeons kid. We are still covered if we decide we need an undersized, tweener, center who is living of his last name's legacy.


Can the Wings sign Gretzky's daughter? PLEASE!
