#2574060 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by number9 on 23 February 2015 - 11:48 PM

From now on I'm wearing my yoga pants when I go to the hockey games. I want the players to see and  feel the love I have for them. I want Benn to know I am a fan of his and don't hold any ill will towards him for punching Z in the back of the head. I would just die if someone beat his face in. Such a pretty face. :glare:


IDK, personally I'd like to see his "pretty" face get beat in.

You're right....Because making someone who gets millions pay 10k for sucker punching our captain and putting him out will deter benn the next time he decides to do it. Not a punch to the face. That's so barbaric.  :glare:


We need a wiki now to show us how to sneak in flowers and love letters to the next game so when someone runs one of our players or punches them in the back of the head we can all throw those onto the ice and tell said player how much we love him and appreciate his hard work. WE LOVE YOU BENN GROUP HUG!!!


Yeah let's all send Benn some love-letters and flowers maybe if we do the same thing with the NHL department of players safety they'll come to their senses and fine a multi-millionaire 10.000 bucks lol


The only way I'm sending him a letter would be if a guy like Colton Orr, Brian McGrattan or Frazer McLaren delivers the letter on the ice

Ericsson fought Benn earlier in the game. I thought that thing was supposed to stop cheap shots and make rats and other rodents scared. Still Benn hit Z right in front of Ericsson. How is that possible? Didn't Ericsson enforce Benn enough or is Benn just too much of a rat to understand "the code"?


Or maybe Ericsson doesn't punch hard enough?  McGrattan would have punched Benn into the next dimension.

Is calling Howard "average" bashing?

Can I take it back to when the political thread was still around?  ;)

This is one beef I have. I wish the politics forum were still around. But, after talking with more than one mod via private message, I can understand (though not necessarily agree with) their reasoning for shutting it down. 


Oh well. They do a great job with this site, and it's a pretty small thing to complain about.

Looking forward to seeing Jurco's progress.

I wish I could see these standings in a meme form with the caption having one of the talking head analysts
saying the Red Wings will barely make the playoffs. I know I heard it somewhere.

I think when the guys look and see themselves at the top they're going to be extra motivated to stay there.
8 and 2 in our last 10? What a time to be alive!!!

#2560380 CapGeek shuts down

Posted by Matt on 03 January 2015 - 10:05 PM

I've kept in touch with Matt on and off for years (for a short time he wrote about the Red Wings' prospects on this site before the turn of the century and branching out to Rivals.com and eventually RWC). We worked a bit on CapGeek together and this is truly sad news.


Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. I know the decision made tonight was an extremely difficult one for him....

#2557448 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 17 December 2014 - 04:44 PM


Nor do we want him.


we don't?


Admittedly I can't see a scenario where the Wings could get Hall anytime soon, but I also can't imagine why the Wings wouldn't want him given the right deal.


Yes he plays a little recklessly and isn't great defensively, but I can't hold too much against him for any of that given the disaster that is the Edmonton Oilers.  He still has maturing to do, and it's not gonna happen in Edmonton under the conditions there for the last few years.

If that's Earl Grey, or Chamomile - please set up another place setting for me!

Are you kidding me?! *Chamomile*? IT'S NOT EVEN A REAL TEA!! It's a fricking *herb*. Are you so full of yourself that you can't appreciate a decent green tea? You're probably the type that prefers English Breakfast over Irish Breakfast. I just don't know what to say to you anymore. You're clearly an uncivilized ass.

So much truculence in this thread.

Nothing wrong with that, it's still a shame that nobody stood up for Smith and adding someone other teams fear is never the worst idea in the world.

Also Johnny Hockey, Monahan and the other Flames youngstars can go outthere and do what they want, because they know a bunch of no nonsense guys are having their back. I disagree with a lot of things that Burke says, but when it comes to truculence, beligerence and pugnacity the guy is right. I'm also not going to say sorry for liking something thats been part of hockey since forever and enjoying a good scrap, hard hit and some rough stuff after all this is hockey and not soccer where so called athletes are acting like ******* if someone touches them ...

What's your solution?  Shanahan's suspensions didn't seem to work as much as desired.  And cheap hits in the playoffs have resulted in fighting.  The Ottawa vs. Montreal series a few years ago turned into a fight fest due to a cheapshot.  The 2012 playoffs had a ton of brawls and skirmishes in the first round.    
Historically, though, there's never been as much fighting in the playoffs as the regular season.  Even in the 80's or early 90's.    

Honestly, I don't know that I have a solution, but I also haven't been tasked with it in any official capacity. I believe before fighting can be eliminated the NHL has to assume a stronger position against it, but there are at this time too many fans and consequently too much money, in support of fighting.
