#2042691 10/8 GDT: Ducks 0 at Red Wings 4

Posted by Barrie on 08 October 2010 - 09:17 PM

I'm really starting to think there's a problem with the Canadian players in the league. There seems to be a generation of poor sports, cry babies, and cheap shot artists towards the Europeans, lead by Iginla, Crosby, Thornton, Getzlaf, and Perry. Almost like it's a Canadian vs. European mindset. I'm wondering if it has something to do with the stuff Don Cherry says on Hockey Night in Canada?

Bettman will continue to screw with the game, and Crosby will continue to be marketed to death, infuriating the fans even more.

The officials <_<

Bettman and Crosby

I was at every home game that series. I still can't believe their level of doucheness in that series.

I remember too when McCarty signed on with the Flames, one of the Flames players said, "We won't rub it in that we beat him last year". I thought huh? DMac, a 3 time Stanley Cup Champion at the time, is being brought in to show you guys how to win.

Avs. without question or debate. The Rivalry between the wings and the Avs, the dirty hit, the retribution Mac and the team took, it was the most intense rivalry I've personally ever experienced between the wings and another team. I dont think anything will ever come close to those years again. To much happened to spark that, on and off the ice.

I don't hate the Avs anymore. The hit on Draper has been avenged, Lemieux will forever be known as (1) a turtle and (2) a wuss when confronted by someone his own size, and we won the rivalry with the 7-0 win in 2002. It's old news with the Avs.

I'm biased towards goaltenders so I say Ozzie. He's done a ton for us, and even in the midst of poor seasons I still love that guy. :D

Yup despite a couple bad seasons, Ozzie is #2 all time in Red Wings regular season wins, and #1 in the playoffs. Ozzie is da man!

This is the problem with the new generation, no respect for adults. Yes Draper and Maltby are falling fast, but what you fail to realize is the thing that makes this team what it is, is loyalty to veteran players, you take care of them as long as you can and they take care of you, it's why we don't have contract hold outs, it's why our players defer salary. I have several jerseys with retired or aging players, I also have several with new players or prime players. The point is, to say Maltby is in the twilight of his career, and that he won't be around much longer if at all is one thing, to laugh at a person for suggesting they wear his jersey, and saying "he needs" to retire is something entirely different. Have some respect for the players that helped mold the Red Wings into what they are today, because Draper and Maltby were both a big part of that.

Right. I'm not interested in getting a jersey of someone who could be here a while, and who could be a great player. When it comes to a jersey, I want someone on the back who you could wear to a game 50 years from now and people know exactly who they are. Depending on their age, they either have instant memories, or remember the stories they've heard or things they've watched.

Last year I bought one of those Granderson Tigers jersey t-shirts and already it's unwearable because of his trade to the Yankees. Good thing I didn't buy an actual jersey!

With a comment like that, how long have you been a Red Wings fan? Two years?

#2033078 Hudler is officially back

Welcome back Huds, I'll never forget the time during warmups (08-09 season), while standing in the corner behind the glass and watching Ozzie, you fired the puck at my face. You would have hit me square in the nose if it wasn't for the glass!

I love how a Penguins fan comes to a Red Wings board and then somehow acts suprised when Red Wings fans defend/hype their team.

Bring back the negative ratings!

#2031668 I've Never Wached Game 7 of the 2009 SCF...

Posted by Barrie on 07 September 2010 - 10:06 PM

I'm just wondering who here is old enough to be a Wings fan, or remember, before 1997? 2009 was bad, but as a fan since the late 1980's, it wasn't the worst for me. 1994, 1995, and 1996 was much worse.

After winning the cup, playoff defeats, for me, were easier to take.

This could very well be the intent.

And I think those two deserve it.
