#2445873 Kronwall Injury Update

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 18 October 2013 - 01:49 PM


To be fair, his tune changed when it became clear that Kronwall was hurt. However, as somebody who lives in Denver I can tell you that he's nearly unbearable to listen to on an even semi-regular basis. He's basically a less entertaining, less intelligent version of Jack Edwards.


To be fair, HF is HF, and the average Avalanche fans are (aside from "Red Wings suck" chants) not that bad. I've been to many games at the Pepsi Center, and I've never been accosted or messed with. Coincidentally, the Wings have also won every single game I've gone to. I wish I'd gone last night.


To me, whether he's injured on the play or not is irrelevant.  It was a dirty, dirty hit that shouldn't be celebrated from the moment it took place.  Just like when Lemuiex destroyed Draper and the fan base started calling him the "Draperizer".  Pathetic.


....And make no mistake, I love Kronwall, but some of his hits are borderline.  I've never seen someone push the envelope as much as he does and yet 99.9% of his hits are clean.

wow what a big d-bag this announcer is.


Seriously...what a d*uche.  Kronwall's M.O. is lining people up coming out of their own zone.  This was running someone from behind into the boards.  Completely different.....what a jackass.

A thread bump regarding a player that left vs. one that was added and hasn't lit it up *yet* coinciding with a Red Wing loss.


Who'd of thought?

What a horrible stat. What would his +/- be if he was in the panthers? Come on.. you can do better.


I know you weren't asking me this, but how is that different than any other stat if he was on a poor team?  His point scoring along with most other stats will go down playing on garbage clubs.


It's no more a "horrible stat" than anything other....its relative.

Dats is seriously hysterical. It brought back memories of his James Brown ringtone.

^ You might want to check your Cleary numbers.  Looks like he got one hell of a raise. :P

#2399022 Which things from the past (not just Wings related) do you miss most?

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 07 May 2013 - 08:08 PM



Although I will say that with the speed of todays game - it might be hard for the opposition to judge if a hit on a teammate was in fact clean, or dirty...Many won't wait for the refs, or Shanny's form of justice, and will take matters into their own hands.


My beef is when  its done immediately after the hit takes place.  I have no problem if you ask the player that laid your guy out to "go" the next shift, but when someone jumps the player that just blasted a guy on their team (specifically when its not an illegal hit and no call is coming), it should be delay of game.  You never saw this type of stuff until after the 2005 lockout.  It's BS.

I miss the fact that play doesn't continue after someone lays another player out with huge, clean hit.  It pisses me off that players go after Kronwall (or any other player for that matter) after a huge hit.  To me, this should be called as delay of game if it immediately follows a legal hit.

#2398900 Norris Finalists announced: Letang, Subban, Suter

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 07 May 2013 - 03:06 PM

Exactly.  I hope a guy like Brent Seabrook wins the Norris one day, cause he's one of the best "overall defensemen" in the league and doesn't get the credit cause he doesn't rack up points on D, cause HE'S PLAYING DEFENSE! 


Exactly what I'm talking about.  Seriously, what happened to this award?  Why has the criteria completely changed the past 2-3 seasons?


It's kind of like how the Heisman has become an offensive award in college football.  Ridiculous.....and this is coming from a guy that played Center his whole career and pinched way too often for my teams' own good. ;)

Jesus....didn't the Norris trophy used to have nominees that were actually incredible defensive players?


This list seems so ridiculous compared to what we saw just a few years ago.

I typically run the game and I was just about to make a post asking if someone else could handle it this year.  I'm about to start up my own business on June 1st and I simply don't have the time my game requires this year.  Hopefully, next year I'll be back up and running.

#2369359 Time to blow it up and rebuild

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 15 March 2013 - 04:40 PM

I said to buy out two contracts - Samuelsson and Quincey - if we can't move them in a trade.

Face the facts.  20 year run is over.  Has been over.  It's time to start over.  Clear the roster.  Acquire new kids and picks in trade.  Sign some new kids in FA.  Call up our own kids.  Get a couple high 1st rd. picks.  

Start over.


Do it right.

It'll be easier to do now than in two 


This is what you wrote:


Samuelsson.  Trade him if you can.  Buy him out if you can't.

Quincey.  Trade him if you can.  Buy him out if you can't.

Colaiacovo.  Trade him if you can.  Bu..

Bertuzzi.  Trade him if you can.  Bu..

Eaves.  Trade him if you can.  Bu..

Gustavsson.  Trade him if you can.  Bu..


To the avid English-speaking poster, this implies you want these players to be bought out if they can't be traded.  That number is 6, not 2.


The twenty year run is not over until they miss the playoffs.  Blowing up the roster is simply stupid when you can subtract pieces and continue to build with the solid players you have along with the youth that's making its way up.


Is this team what it once was, no...but that doesn't mean they can't be with the correct additions/subtractions.  Your OP comes off like something an impulsive child would say.

#2368076 Helm: "Minor Setback", still out indefinitely, *merged*

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 12 March 2013 - 02:00 PM

well with cleary saying buh bye (hopefully after his contract is up this year) that is 2.8 million, plus whites contract is up, unfortunately we still have sammy, bert, quincey, and colo locked up all for at least another year.


Bert's the only one in there I don't mind.  The other three are nothing more than serviceable at the right price.  Bert, when healthy, is solid based on his contract.  Cleary, he can move on and never return as far as I'm concerned.


That being said, Brunner is likely going to command a raise.  Probably not something ridiculous given the sample size is so small, but a raise nonetheless.

#2361043 Red Wings to be in an Eastern conference in latest NHL/NHLPA proposal

Posted by NeverForgetMac25 on 25 February 2013 - 09:58 AM



Not all, but unfortunately many Chicago sports fans can be complete a$$holes...If ya don't believe me - just show up in your Red Wings jersey at the United Center the next time the 2 rivals meet.


I do it every year....and its as pleasant as you say it is.  My wife and I were walking to our seats a couple years ago before the game started and as we moved into our row, we were greeted with "f*** You, f*** You, f*** You."


Drives me nuts that I'll never be able to take my daughter there simply because I won't expose her to an environment like that.

Should I pull the 4-5 identical threads regarding this topic we've had over the course of the past 5 years?  What a waste indeed.


Talk about nitpicking for the sake of nitpicking.
