#2274157 The reason The Wings shipped Mike Commodore

Posted by LeftWinger on 26 March 2012 - 05:31 PM

Thanks for the update. Always nice when the guys with inside info share it with the group.

But seriously is his mom retarded? A young hyped dman in Toronto is the worst thing I've seen. Young guys not playing like Holzer and Aulie after Aulie proved he could handle top minutes well. And young guys like Schenn not panning out with that media messing with their heads.

I hope he makes his own decision and doesnt listen to his mom

Me too! I'd hate to see him go anywhere else but here, but NHL or AHL...which would you choose? I just hope he decides to take the I-96 route...

Besides, Kindl hsa peaked....he was drafted in 2005...he is what he is, nothing more, nothing less. If anyone with half a mind thinks that he is going to improve his game after 7 years already playing pro hockey, then you need to take that brain back to the lab....same goes with Ericsson, you've seen his best. He may be solid, but he isn't going to get any better, he may stay the same, but he is not going to be as good as Kronwall, he is a career #5/6...Kindl is a #7 on a contending team, maybe a #5/6 on Carolina or Columbus...

So you would rather have had Kindl waived and lose him to another team who would have claimed him than send down Smith? Unreal.

No, from what I understand is that there is no roster limits so Kindl would not have to be sent anywhere, but Holland chose to play Kindl over Smith and didn't want smith sitting and not playing, which I understand, but he should be playing over Kindl...he is much better than Kindl...let Kindl sit in the pressbox.

EDIT: and I'd much rather have Smith and Dekeyser here over Kindl anyway, so trade Kindl in the offseason for whatever you can get for him, which isn't gonna be much...maybe future considerations if they're lucky...and no, I didn't neg you...

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...

I agree but screw seniority. Kindl hasn't done anything to warrant being in the lineup so it should be him in the press box.

Smith played mostly with Doug freakin Janik and excelled, Smith and Quincey is better than Quincey/Kindl/Ericsson. Holland's gotta stop being afraid to hurt guys feelings, this is a business and he should do whatever to make this team better. Babcock even said he wanted Smith in the lineup all year long..

Exactly, funny I got negged for saying Smith should be playing over Kindl, and you got a plus...Maybe the guy who negged me was totally in love with Kory Kocur or something.... But ya, Smith needs to be here and playing, Kindl is just not as good. Pure seniority move by Holland...

The team sucks right now. We're playing hard tonight, but that's tonight. Saying the team isn't that good right now, or that we have problems, isn't being negative. It's assessing the situation as honestly as possible. You can phrase it better than "we suck" obviously, but I'm being a bit dramatic to make my point.

Thank you!

It's funny, but someone negged me when I said I just wish the negger's would say why....that is what I mean about some of these users....

You guys are hilarious. I love seeing everyone jump back on the red wings' metaphorical dick once things improve. Many of you are the very definition of bandwagoners. I would love to see what some of you are like in real life. Some of your' comments display a complete lack of character. How do you all handle adversity in the real world? It's a hockey game, a form of entertainment, and guess what. Nothing you do has any affect on the outcome, it's asinine to freak out over such things.

Wow, imagine that, you got negged for speaking the truth...Heaven forbid the truth gets told here....let's just end this now...

Red Wings are Gods! They came back to beat the (LOL) Hurricanes! They will sweep their way to the Cup!

Folks, is that really what you want us to all say? Grow up and be real...and open your mind a bit...

I played hockey my whole life, I know how to get up off the ice. It's also blatantly obvious that the guy can barely life himself. You're right, using your stick isn't uncommon. Using your stick and struggling like Cleary was last night is a different story.

I'll quote your verbatim from last night, "This team is horrendous". Paint whatever picture you want, but last night you weren't making valid points about the team. You were being negative, repeatedly references the same old trade deadline s*** you refuse to let go, and repeatedly telling everyone how "right" you were. I think that you got negged less for having an opinion and more for being obnoxious about how you shared that opinion. YOUR EXACT WORDS WERE "THIS TEAM IS HORRENDOUS", and then you come on here acting like a crybaby saying "it wasn't like I said the team sucked" boohoo. But you did dude, you absolutelyf****** did.

Here's another couple of quotes from you last night. "*******", not sure if this was in reference to the team or to the other members here,but classy none the less. Here's one that was definitely aimed at the other members here "you @@@@@s are delusional". But you're right, you were using perfectly rational arguments to explain, calmly and reasonably, your frustration with the current play of the team.

If you remember it like that I'd love to know what the rest of the fever dream you call a life looks like.

Oh, but if you actually read the post you just replied to, I did refer to the one time I said "This team is Horrendous" and I said that after the quick powerplay goals. This team is a bunch of ******* AND you guys are delusional if you think this team is gonna win the Cup with the crappy special team play. So where is my crying and whining and unjustifiably saying that the team is horrendous or calling out the fact that the problems were not addressed? Did Holland try to address them? Maybe, but the fact remains that Franzen is not going to be the Franzen of 2008 EVER again, Zetterberg is not going to be the Zetterberg of 2008 ever again, so these things must be addressed or this team will continue a downward spiral. Today was a perfect example, Holland chose Kindl's seniority over Smith's far better play...this is what I question and this is what gets me negged for no other reason than "Ooh, you said something bad about the Wings!" NEG!

There are no roster limits, but this is a pure senority move typical of the Red Wings, so instead of letting Smith it in the press box Holland sent him down to keep him playing although Smith should be playing here above Kindl due to him be far better. In my opinion Jakub Kindl was the worst first round pick by Detroit since Kory Kocur.

#2273878 Goal horn

Posted by LeftWinger on 25 March 2012 - 12:28 PM

I am pretty sure that last night was a DTE energy savings night, which I think means they don't play the goal horn in as long of a sequence as usual.

In all honesty, I cannot stand that immediately after a goal, you get the goal horn, then it is announced, "That goal was brought to you by DTE Energy!" Then when they announce the goal scorer, they don't say "Detroit Goal scored by..." they say "DTE Energy Microwave Goal scored by..." This s*** pisses me off to no extent!

It's a piece of s***. All it does is provoke more nonsense than it abates. I don't "care", but I don't see why we need it. It gets abused by people who use it to piss on other members they don't like, or because said members posted something that may be true, but unpopular. I can't even remember the last time I availed myself of it.

To get back on topic, hell of a game so far. At least the Wings are showing some stones.

Exactly! :clap:

Like I said, it's fine if you want to neg, but explain why you disagree. Folks just neg because someone says "Boooo Wings" even though a lot of times it's the truth...

Negg all you want, I don't mind, I just would like to know why folks disagree with me, or did I mistake this for a discussion forum?

Anyhow, nice comeback so far, but special teams will kill this team, too bad Holland didn't address that...

Quit being such a poopy face u little *****

Excuse me? Really, 1st grade name calling? Funny thing is, I say something negative and get negged, everyone else does and gets nothing..I guess I should just wait until they are dead in the water to say what is on my mind....

Just watch your mouth...

Are you watching this game? Ward has been unreal. The Wings have hit the post 3 times.

EDIT: 4-1 now. Ok fine you win.

Ya, I win now...too bad everyone negged me when they just thought I was trolling and being negative..too bad they neg without debating why....now they see why. I hate being right...Go Holland!

"What? you say something bad about Wings? NEG!"

Take the glasses off people
