#2635345 All purpose Mike Babcock thread

Posted by vladdy16 on 06 November 2015 - 09:37 AM

Let's keep the conversation to Babcock, not each other, please.


That being said, I honestly don't understand why everyone is so all-consumed with Babcock.  He was here, now he's not.  I wish him no ill will whatsoever and would be pleased to see Toronto do well (but not too well), but I have moved on.  We shouldn't be giving Babs a second thought unless and until we meet in the playoffs, or maybe when Olympic hockey is gearing up.  Or is it just me?

#2634745 Good place to buy Tickets?

Check the STH ticket exchange here.  Sometimes they're overpriced, but sometimes you can find someone just trying to unload them.

I freakin' hate Todd Bertuzzi, but without context, I have no opinion on this.

#2631024 Why Is The Joe Half Empty?

Posted by vladdy16 on 15 October 2015 - 05:12 PM

I don't think it's fair to throw the word "fickle" around so much.  You have to understand the excitement the Wings were generating back in the 90s.  We went from perpetual cellar dwellers to a damn good team.  That kind of turnaround and excitement is impossible to sustain. And there a many, many fans who came into hockey appreciation while the Wings were at their peak; first round exits seem heartbreaking to them rather than realizing making the playoffs for more than two decades is a real achievement to be savored.  When I first started going to hockey games, you could pick your seat no matter what your tickets said.  It was that empty.  There are comparatively few fans still around from the 60s, 70s and 80s who were fortunate enough to watch the (painfully) slow rise to near-dynasty.  There are far more post 80s fans now, and they are absolutely spoiled.  It's going to take another serious Cup run to get people truly excited again.  While I don't agree so much with that way of looking at the Wings and their success or perceived lack of it, I understand it.  

#2630735 McDavid with a dirty hit not called.

Posted by vladdy16 on 14 October 2015 - 12:19 PM

The conspiracy aspect of this conversation is dubious at best topic-wise.  Let's stick to the McDavid hit that did not earn a penalty.  As always, feel free to start a conspiracy topic.  There's also the ever-popular "referees suck" option.  :)

Anybody else having the least productive day at work ever?

Second only to Olympic hockey streaming.

#2628291 Crosby says Zetterberg most competitive player he ever faced as pro

I think that post was more of the "That was an average save" sarcastic type than disparaging the prowess of The Beard.



At least that's what I choose to believe.

And we're back to why the first thread was locked.  Stick to facts about the case and how this case is affecting hockey.  That's it.

#2626005 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by vladdy16 on 18 September 2015 - 07:07 PM

You're right.  The Wings would never allow a star player who was committing a crime, but not charged, with, let's say, hypothetically speaking, statutory rape, to continue playing under such heinous circumstances.  Classy Wings fans absolutely would never, ever continue to support such a player either.  So glad we're not like those awful Blackhawk fans who would cheer for someone who hasn't been charged with any crime. Thankfully that would never actually happen.

This does nothing to address what she said.  She was very specific in saying she speaks only to how she herself would handle the Wings handling the same situation in the same way.  Please desist in attempting to rile others up.

Posted by vladdy16 on 17 September 2015 - 05:35 PM

A worthy cause is promised a substantial sum of money over the next few years and we're here arguing about whether that's a good thing?


I weep for Wings fans.
