That's the problem I have too. You don't call out a player by name because now you've put the name in the heads of the refs.
You think we'd ever see quotes like this?
"Finally, coaches and general managers were also told diving and embellishing will be watched closely.
The Ottawa Senators are sure to remind round one officials of this on a game by game basis as Pittsburgh's Sidney Crosby has mastered the art of diving and embellishing contact in order to draw a penalty on the opposing team."
I am glad someone else finally said it, Red Wings need a change. I am so effing tired of the crappy wheel with a wing. I mean WTF kind of logo is that? I am also in favor of changing the name... When I see "Red Wings" I think of a used maxi pad.
Yet you post in the thread? Why not just ignore it.
I am hoping May will be back up here for some games during the playoffs; I think it will be based on who we play. Bert and Big E need to become a little more physical. And as other members have mentioned since Lilja returned, the Wings have played a lot better.
Filppula better skater, better defensively, better fit for NHL.. Hudler more skills and better shot, better passer.
Hmm equally good but speed is so important for NHL'ers these days...
A discussion about Hudler came up sometime back with another member and I did mention that he was crucial for setting us goals (assists) and that is what we needed. So do you think the Wings would benefit by having Hudler back and him playing with Filppula? Would they compliment each other?
