#2450794 Marty the Marmot mascot attacked during WHL game

Marty the Marmot, Canada’s mascot of the year, attacked during WHL game

http://ca.sports.yah...-165508738.html

 

 

That is messed up. It's a hockey game, and a light-heartened intermission game. I don't know if he's drunk, but either way, what a Le' ******.

 

I hope they press assault charges. I'm surprised he made it out of the arena in one piece (one large piece of s**t).

Good to bring in Gus. They're hanging Jimmy out to dry and he doesn't look to sharp tonight either. Get them next time Howie! Let's Go Gus!!!




#2442901 Ex-Coyotes owner off hook for Gretzky’s $6.5M.

I'd like to see Gretzky make a fuss to get that money. It's a drop in the "Gretzky Bucket", but it also would show fans that the NHL has ZERO problem trying to screw one of the games very best players.

Nash even left the ice before hitting Kopecky. Ahhh, the beauty of double-standards...

Was the ice terrible? That puck never settled the whole game. The Wings will continue to gel and the timing will come with that.




#2440615 Steve Yzerman wants Game Misconduct penalties for fighting

Posted by thegerkin on 02 October 2013 - 04:18 PM

In the Dreger article, it looks like Scotty Bowman is all onboard the no-fight train:

 

After reading the quotes from these three NHL executives, it didn't take long for one of the game's most celebrated builders to chime in as well. "I support views of Steve Yzerman, Ray Shero and Jim Rutherford on their opinions for addressing most fighting issues," tweeted the legendary Scotty Bowman on Wednesday afternoon. "Poll all Players." 

 

The "Poll All Players" part caught my eye because as it says in the article, 98% of players polled in 2011-12 do NOT want fighting removed. Some might say don't let the inmates run the asylum, but when all but 2% of the NHL players want fighting left in the game, I think the players know how to handle the on-ice game. Let them play.




#2438463 Wings to Keep Tootoo?

Posted by thegerkin on 23 September 2013 - 02:31 AM

Anyone think that maybe Holland said he would be ready because he wants to trade him?

 

You never know. It very well could be to pump up his trade value by showing that Detroit have publicly said they will keep Tootoo. I hope it's not the trade value boost, as I'm looking forward him to being on our roster all year! :thumbup:




#2436448 Cleary re-signs with Detroit, 1 year, $1.75m deal

Posted by thegerkin on 13 September 2013 - 06:55 AM

This is NOT a Stanley Cup pushing roster so why not see what the young guns can do and off-load the vets?

 

Really? This team was a goal away from the Conference Finals while rebuilding on the fly and has improved quite a bit with the new additions (Alfie, Weiss) while keeping the core of Kronner, Z, Pavs, Ericsson and Howard. This is a better roster than last season, especially for guys like Gus, Andy, Deke who have basically doubled their NHL experience, including playoffs.

#2434767 Red Wings Goal song?

Posted by thegerkin on 03 September 2013 - 01:54 AM

I always thought the beginning of this song...

 

Anyone who knows who The Flatliners are (they're from Brampton, Ont.) gets my vote for goal song :thumbup:

#2417192 2013 Detroit Red Wings Eulogy

Posted by thegerkin on 02 June 2013 - 07:56 PM

Lame attempt at a "funny" eulogy. Ripping on Hockeytown? This from the team that dresses like the yellow Voltron character? Ripping on Miller's hair, really? Beating the "how many cups" phrase into the ground. Possibly one of the worst "eulogies" I've had the displeasure of reading. See you in the funny papers Nashville.
