#2050068 5 reasons to Love/Hate the Red Wings

Posted by dragonballgtz on 21 October 2010 - 05:11 PM

Hating the Joe is not jealousy... it does stink, especially on the outside across the street from the main entrance. I love the Joe and all but it needs to go.


#2049272 Illitch "definitely committed" to new downtown arena

Posted by dragonballgtz on 19 October 2010 - 12:44 PM

Of course he expects them to pay. That's why he bought the Pistons. He's using the threat of moving the Wings to the suburbs as leverage for city funding for a new rink.

With The Wings and Pistons playing in metro Detroit you get 10,000+ people in that area 100 times a year, spending money. Like Illitch, the city needs to invest in order to stimulate the economy.

The man loves Detroit. If he wants a new rink, I say help the guy out. It will be good for the city and good for long-term revitalization.

I would rather the City put more cops on the streets then help a building out. I understand the need for a new arena but when it comes down to it the City has bigger issues it needs to address first...like stated security, schools, streets, abandon buildings and other things.

I sure hope he does not expect for the City of Detroit to pay for some of it like they did for Comerica Park. If the City was healthy I would be for it but it can barley pay for public services let alone paying for part of a new stadium.

Damn, not much Howie could of done there.. I mean he was in perfect position, puck just forced its way through. Nice try Jimmy!

He could of stopped the puck.


#2044900 Wisniewski makes obscene gesture towards Avery

Posted by dragonballgtz on 12 October 2010 - 05:41 PM

Two games for a gesture!!! This league is funny as within the few games played so far this year there has been some questionable hits around the league but no one is looking at them. I guess they are too worried about s*** like this.


#2044821 Kirk Maltby to announce he is retiring

Posted by dragonballgtz on 12 October 2010 - 02:35 PM

I literally just got teary eyes. Thank you for everything Maltby, you are a legend in my eyes.

OH NO!!!!




#2037945 Tallon gets his name on cup and a ring...

Posted by dragonballgtz on 29 September 2010 - 02:09 PM

The guy gets fired after screwing up with prospects and not understanding the cap, but is still honored by the team?

@craigcustance

Without him screwing up like he did CHI would not of gotten that cup. He went all in for one year and they won.


#2036041 McKenzie: Don't write off the Red Wings just yet

Posted by dragonballgtz on 23 September 2010 - 10:08 PM

I'm a little concerned about his comments about Modano's work ethic.

Chelios should work out with him :devil:


#2036006 An absolute steal...

Posted by dragonballgtz on 23 September 2010 - 08:08 PM

Sportsnet dot ca.

HAH!!!! So this guy gets a suspension within one day for this little act but nothing has been mentioned from the NHL about Orpik's knee-to-knee hit. Nice priorities NHL. <_<


#2030909 Kovalchuk Deal approved

Posted by dragonballgtz on 03 September 2010 - 05:16 PM

How in the hell would they be able to do anything about Hossa's contract? He has already played with it....god this league is dumb.
