In Topic: Wings great Gordie Howe resting after 'serious stroke'

29 October 2014 - 07:53 AM

Sad news. Gordie has lived a long, illustrious life.

I hope he lives out his last years down in TX surrounded by his family and friends and not in too much pain.

Boy oh boy, to be stricken with Alzheimer's - forgetting those around you day by day is really, really tough.

 

Prayers to him and his family.

Great character win. They stayed with it, and OT rewarded them. 

To beat the pretenders from Pittsburgh - who were falsely handed a Cup in 2009 they never earned - what a great night. Did Crosby cry again? Did he call his momma? Phaneuf and Crosby see each time they face Zetterberg what the C really means. But they never learn.

I'm pretty sure the Illitch's, along with the other successful owners, don't like shelling out millions to support a failing business regardless if they can use that money to add more players, it's still their money.

The salary cap doesn't exist to bail out teams. It exists, because in a perfect world, similar salary structure equals competitive teams. It doesn't always work out that way but  that's why teams have them. Not so there is extra money to bail out teams. 


In Topic: TANK IT! 2014-2015 Season

16 October 2014 - 08:09 AM

 

I'm officially calling for a 2015 TANK job. I think we can all agree, there is absolutely NOTHING to amp us up and get excited about in the upcoming season. Literally, NOTHING. 
 
Instead of praying for another 8th seed finishing of limping into the playoffs and getting decimated in the 1st round, I would much rather hope for an absolute tank and hopefully get a top 3 draft pick. Not only will this give us all something to get excited for, but it might also spark some much needed change in the organization's management. 
 
Who's with me?  #Tankit2014

 

I've forwarded this to Kenny and I am waiting for his response. Seems like a pretty logical thing to do, three games into this season.

Money from teams like the Wings ... and a stubborn NHL front office every other league would have long acted.

 

Do I wish that to the (few) loyal fans there ? No it for sure sucks but I'm also sick of seeing the Wings having to pay money they could use on players, instead of being forced to help expansion teams stay in the business.

 

If they would have been the Quebec Panthérs the team would have been moved a long time ago that's for sure.

There's a salary cap. What money do the Red Wings have that could be used to add additional players if they didn't pay out to help other teams in the league?
