#2230429 Bylsma Defends Crosby's Elbow on Foligno

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 November 2011 - 03:41 PM

This is why he will never have the respect. He is just lke Mario in that regard, waa waa if someone touches him, but it's just playing hard hockey if he does it to someone else...and just like Mario, nothing will be said from the NHL....Seems to me, NHL was better without him. At least everything was fair and there was no special treatment for players who seem to have special rules...


#2230424 Kessel 2nd Best Player in NHL?

Posted by LeftWinger on 27 November 2011 - 03:21 PM

The funny part isn't that they call Kessel the 2nd best player in the NHL, it's the part they call Cindy the best player... :hysterical: Just one more hit....please!


#2228585 Crosby coming back

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 November 2011 - 09:23 PM

I'm glad he's back, for the good of the game, but we're supposed to like him?

The game was pretty good while he wasn't around...


#2228560 Crosby coming back

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 November 2011 - 09:03 PM

I'll be excited once Hudler gets the 10 year contract he deserves.

don't even joke about something like that, I almost ***** slapped my monitor!

LOL! Someone actually caring that Crysby stays in the NHL, that's a hoot!


#2228558 Crosby coming back

Posted by LeftWinger on 21 November 2011 - 08:47 PM

Ugh, nhl.vom(it) has a section for Cindy's shift by shift report...really? This just in, Cindy takes first post-concussion piss...

You would think no other player has EVER returned from a concussion....Geez I wish someone would take one for the rest of us and just blindside that little *****.


#2227912 Crosby coming back

Posted by LeftWinger on 20 November 2011 - 04:48 PM

please excuse me while I celebrate. :puke:

I hope the next hit knocks him back out...I cannot stand the prissy bastard.


#2227135 Babcock: "Do we want to be a good team or not?"

Posted by LeftWinger on 18 November 2011 - 01:23 PM

I've been annoyed when others jumped to this conclusion too early, but we're coming up on that all knowing 20 game mark and I think we've sene what we are now... I hate to say it, but this team needs a major shake-up... personnel has been too comfortable for too long and I think certain players are becomming complacent....

I still think we're going to see a blockbuster trade at the deadline... at this point, I really just hope it doesn't include Fil, as he's been our best forward this season and short of our bottom 6, he's the only one that's shown tenancity game in and out...

I agree with you about Filppula, but unfortunately nobody is gonna take our underachieving garbage just because of their potential. If not Filppula, then it's gonna be Helm or Abby. For me the ONLY trade-able guys I would not trade is Filppula, Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Helm, Abby and Howard. Obviously Lidstrom isn't going anywhere and neither is Holmstrom. Even guys with NTC/NMC would be shopped, if they don't want to waive them clause, then they will sit... But, if we could package something together for a HUGE HUGE HUGE impact player, I'd be all for it. If you have to dump Franzen/Hudler/Kronwall along with prespects, then do it. Everyone is right, this team is stale, content, comfortable. I said it before, this team is what it is and pretty much you have already seen the best this "core" can be. Even Helm and Abby are what they are, they're good, but they aren't gonna all of a sudden turn into 50 goal scorer's.

I hope things change, but how long until they do? Kenny, this is a business, you have to so what's best for the franchise. Start the phones ringing, you should be able to get a very nice player(s) for a few good packages... Franzen, Hudler, Kronwall, Ericsson, Cleary, Bertuzzi, Brunnstrom...prospects, picks. Let's get some impact players here, not part timers.

Interesting thing about Franzen, we all remember his 5 goal outburst last season, right after that somebody (I forget who) started calling him the new Fedorov, well, it seems ever since that comparison...he has stunk up the ice. Trade him. If you can.


#2226540 Do They Deserve It?

Posted by LeftWinger on 17 November 2011 - 09:25 PM

14 games, 1 goal and 4 assists for Tomas Holmstrom.

http://www.nhl.com/i...id=nhl-keymatch

11 games, 1 goal and 2 assists for Todd Bertuzzi.



I can't believe people will post "What's wrong with Datsyuk" and "What's up with Zetterberg" threads all day long and leave these two WASTES OF SPACE alone. Bertuzzi and Holmstrom are the biggest problem cases on the Red Wings right now, and imo, are keeping the team from developing the players they will need to make a run in this year's playoff. They are both 5-7 years past their primes, and 2-3 years past their effectiveness limit. Why is it that these two guys, who can't open up a square inch of ice, consistently see time with our big guns and drag them down, but a guy like Helm who can open up the whole rink can't sniff a shift with Hank? To me, this is the biggest problem with the Red Wings. The GM has invested in two guys who skate like they're on one leg, and the coach isn't willing to put them in the stands. "But Homer can't be effective without a top line center." HE ISN'T EFFECTIVE PERIOD. The Red Wings need to stop pretending it's 2002. Pavel and Hank need SPEED. They aren't 21 and 23 anymore. Get them some guys who can skate and open up the ice, already.


...so what do you propose to do with them? You can't waive them, they cannot retire because if they did, their salary would still count against the cap, you know you cannot trade them, ya, sit them, but then you are wasting their cap hit in the press box, plus your roster is full, so unless they go on LTIR you cannot sit them and play a youngster... so, like them or not, they are here for the reminder of their contract, and then, they will most likely be gone...


#2226071 11/15 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blues 2

Posted by LeftWinger on 15 November 2011 - 11:05 PM

Am I the only one who finds it strange that Hudler is getting the majority of the scorn right now considering the performance of Datsyuk and Zetterberg?

I'll admit that Cleary and Hudler have been terrible. But where are the leaders on forward? Franzen seems to be our go to guy now and he takes off nights, so how can this team stay competitive when we have two stars who aren't playing like it and a goal scorer who is taking on a role he shouldn't be taking?

Honestly, I think most people here are afraid to say Zetterberg and Datsyuk are playing like crap. It's almost like it's sac-religious to do so. Hell either they are horrible or both hurt, and if they are both hurt, then sit them down and let them heal Mike! I have no issue saying they are playing crappy, but I hope it is due to injury and not aging. I am all for a couple of players sitting down for a bit, some to heal and some to get the freaking point through their heads! Which ones are hurt, we'll probably never know for sure, but if needed put Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Cleary on IR, sit the hell out of Franzen and Hudler...

...a lot of folks complaining about Commodore, but what do you expect when he gets the crap minutes of the game. Say what they want, but Babcock still hates Commodore and is NOT playing him on purpose. How many minutes did he play tonight? Sure, he is not a top 2 defensman, but f*** man, Backes was running everyone out there without regard, put Commodore on him and beat the s*** out of him, at least put him out there so he can try to stick up for his teammates. I am seriously questioning Babcock at this moment. Especially in a game like this, Backes needed to be floored for his antics. And maybe, just maybe that would've lit a bit of a fire...

someone PLEASE gif the part of that commercial where franzen is laughing about his 11 year multi million dollar contract.

perfect response when he decides to take 10 straight games off again.

:blink: we got 11 more years of him? Oh.my.God. Didn't realize it was that long....:puke:

Geez, Backes is just doing whatever he wants! Why? Noone is gonna step up, thats why.....

Man, Zetterberg has to be hurt....sit him down already, let him heal....long term if needed, Jesus, I'd rather have him healthy for the playoffs....


#2225264 The 2012 Off-Season

Posted by LeftWinger on 14 November 2011 - 06:06 AM

Nice! But I dont think they have too much confidence in MacDonald. The rest is awesome!


#2225164 Will Stuart re-sign?

Posted by LeftWinger on 13 November 2011 - 06:06 PM

Well, I would hope that if he does want to move closer to home next year he does one of two things, A. Tells the Wings early enough of his decision so they can trade him to LA at the deadline for Penner or 2. HE lets them know he wants to finish the year out with the Wings and THEN go home, so after the season he re-signs a sign and trade contract with the Wings that the Kings like and gets's traded to the Kings for Penner (who also does a sign/trade.) Of course there is always option C. I'd like to see him re-sign here and when/if Lidstrom retires and Holland gets Suter (or Weber via deadline trade(yes I am thinking positive)) he will still be part of the NHL's best defensive corps and help bring one or two more Cups here.... (positive thinking feels good this morning!)

Would the neg bandits kindly explain to me what about this post warranted a -2? You wouldn't want Suter or Weber or Penner or 2 more Stanley Cups? Would you rather lose Stuart for nothing? So it wouldn't be a good idea to trade him before he leaves or sign/trade him if his heart is in LA? Do you hate Stuart so much that the mere idea of someone mentioned re-sign him makes you sick? Don't just neg someone, be a man and step up and explain the reason you disagree, instead of hiding...
