#1964391 Why do other NHL teams' fans hate the Wings?

Posted by Mors on 28 April 2010 - 02:05 PM

They're bitter and jealous because the Red Wings have excellent owners and management, along with superior coaches and scouts.


#1956967 Suspend Hossa?

Posted by Mors on 25 April 2010 - 08:01 AM

Wasn't a big push, but that's not the point. For consistency this must be a suspension.


#1954958 Ian Laperriere

I would rephrase that - one of those guys you hate when he plays your team, and love the rest of the time. I still think that signing him and Betts were such good moves.


Not me, I think he's a piece of s***, making him the perfect fit for the Flyers.


#1953978 Mike Babcock is an embarrassment to the NHL

Hey, Adrian Aucoin has only played for 6 different NHL teams and won 0 cups...that's a good position to be in when you're talking s*** about one of the greatest defenseman to ever play the game :rolleyes:

Bert has surpassed expectations for the Wings this season, I hope he signs up for another season or two. 44 pts for $1.5 million, how can you complain?

It'd be nice just to have someone in the lineup who isn't afraid to hit Doan.

Before I even read your post I was going to say, easy answer...because we got manhandled. Williams needs to sit.

The NHL truly is a sad little organization when the best they can do is continually shove the Penguins out front and center. This goes beyond blind anti-Crosby or Anti-Pittsburgh hate, give some other teams a chance to have the same experience. Plenty of other good match-ups that could do just as well in the TV ratings.

Howard +1 for glorious Cindy facewashing.


#1918165 "Detroit the hottest option for Zuccarello Aasen"

Posted by Mors on 18 March 2010 - 02:01 PM

You need to move on... if you haven't noticed by now the league has completely changed. Having a skilled team is MORE VALUABLE to me then having 19 fighters on the team.


Yes, that's exactly what I've said, you understood me perfectly. 19 fighters.

Why does it bother you so much? If two of out 19 players in any given game are really short how does that hurt your enjoyment of the game? So what if 10% of the team is small? The Wings definitely have size, they might not have a San Jose team with every player over 6'0 but how many cups has that collection of giants won? How many Conference Finals have they even been to?

Does winning hockey games really mean less to you than the average skate size of the players? It's not like having a pair of short guys forces the other 17 players on the bench to play less physical hockey. If this kid can score and makes the team better I could give two s***s how tall he is. All I care about is the Wings winning hardware and scoring goals. If I want to watch giants lumber around I can watch basketball.


Because I enjoyed watching Red Wings hockey in the late 90s? Why does it bother people on this forum so much when anyone suggests that having a skilled team that is still capable of hitting and fighting is enjoyable? I'll be the first to admit that I'd much rather watch the 97-98 roster than the current lineup. It's not necessarily plausible anymore, but that doesn't mean that I'm going to suddenly forget that this team used to be made up of players who stood up for each other and yet were very successful. And, it's not like Hudler and this random guy will be the only softies on the team.

I'm not trying to start another ridiculous "need moar fighters" debate, I'm just saying, I like watching a skilled yet physical team and this guy is even smaller than Hudler.

I'd much rather see this money spent on a free agent who isn't the size of a peewee player.
