#2527912 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by dicksmack on 01 July 2014 - 12:17 PM

Honestly, everybody should live in NYC for two years. It's a cool place as long as you don't stay too long.

 

I really think the salary cap favours markets like NYC, LA, SJ, ANA, COL etc as these are more desirable cities to live in as measured by the climate and in other cases the local tourist economies... regular people pay money just to visit these places, so why wouldn't athletes factor this is in too?

#2445997 McLeod suspended 5 games for hit on Kronwall

Posted by dicksmack on 19 October 2013 - 11:45 AM

Rather than let up when he saw Kronwall was vulnerable, this douchbag made damn sure the hit was as absolutely hard as he could make it... It doesn't get any more serious than this but saidly, I don't think Shanny has the stones to go more than 3-5 games.




#2384874 GDT 4/15: Red Wings 3 @ Predators 0

Kindl is definitely having one of his off games in the defensive zone. 

Just an average night for him

No one is as all-around skilled as Datsyuk...


#2230430 Kessel 2nd Best Player in NHL?

Posted by dicksmack on 27 November 2011 - 03:57 PM

Any Best NHL Player list without Datsyuk at #1 is incorrect.

esteef


This... When Crosby can defend on an elite level and regularly knock bigger guys on their ass... maybe we'll talk...





#2217514 10/22 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Capitals 7

Posted by dicksmack on 22 October 2011 - 08:01 PM

Ummm you're an idiot.

1st minus is because of Emmerton's giveaway and Conk's terrible goaltending.

2nd minus was started by an ordinary clear attempt by Kindl, but Conk's goaltending was again terrible.

These are the first goals he's been on the ice against all season you idiot.


He'll never catch on for the long run... just like you... NHL'ers don't clear pucks like that


#2217503 10/22 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Capitals 7

Kindl is such a minor leaguer... lets face it...


#2213810 How long before headshots are embellished by garbage players?

Posted by dicksmack on 09 October 2011 - 06:46 PM

Clean hit, definitely embellished....


#2094545 Stuart out 6-8 weeks with broken jaw

Posted by dicksmack on 09 January 2011 - 11:28 AM

Kostopoulos is too chicken to show up for an in person hearing, because he knows he was dead wrong and has no defense, here. I hope he's gets 20 games.

While I agree with Titanium that it's TV and all about ratings, etc., TV is a great place to display one's biases and ignorance. Milbury is a total moron. If ANY other player on ANY other team was injured like Stu was by a puke like Kostopoulos, there would be severe consequences. The other guys bring up the mild concussion to "the best player on the planet" :ph34r: as if that's comparable to what happened to Stu. Whatever.

As the other participants pointed out, there is no contrasting viewpoint. The rules are very clear, and video doesn't lie.

But, oh, well. Since it's just a Red Wing who was hit blindside with an elbow, head-shot resulting in a broken jaw, Kostopoulos is the best tough guy since Vladdy? <_<

Did you see Stu's reaction when he was headed down to the locker room. He was so pissed. I would be, too. Get better soon, Stu.




You can tell Milbury does not like the Wings one bit. BTW, Datsyuk doesn't have a mild concussion, he broke his wrist. Had the Wings not been on back to back games, perhaps Babcock would have bag skated the guys on the ice who didn't respond to the hit (I would hope so),




#2093489 Stuart out 6-8 weeks with broken jaw

Posted by dicksmack on 08 January 2011 - 11:30 AM

The NHL is cool. They are all over hooking calls 200 feet from the play, but can't even correctly call an intentional headshot that results in an injury. There better be a lengthy suspension for this, yet somehow I doubt it.

Stuart is so damn reliable back there. More minutes now for Lidstrom and Rafalski, which isn't ideal as we need them both as fresh as possible for the playoffs. These past two seasons have been a disaster.

Also, who cares if we have an enforcer there? Stuart is still out with an injury so I don't feel any better if someone beats the s*** out of Kostopoulis AFTER the fact.


You don't need an enforcer to stick up for your teammates. I realize that Stuart put himself in a vulnerable position by taking like 3 swats at a floating puck ( Lidstrom he aint) but that hit was vicious and an example of the kind of thing that the NHL says they are trying to eliminate from the game. Hockey is a sport where very serious injuries can occur when players take advantage of each other like this and you need to stick together as a team and protect your guys.


If you are a team like the Canucks, or any other division leader, just injure the Wings' players, they won't anything do but wave their finger at you!

I can't believe nobody on the wings flattened the guy who did this to Stuart--pretty sad...pussified wings
