I just don't understand scratching tootoo in a game like this....I don't get it.

#2382690 Why do you cheer for the Red Wings?

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 10 April 2013 - 09:14 AM

My dad is from Trenton and likes them.

hahaha I was born in Trenton. Riverside Hospital.


Have a lot of family In Michigan. My dad worked at Fleetwood cadillac when it was around and mom worked for GM. I had an uncle that worked for Ford (god rest his soul) another aunt and uncle that worked for GM as well. Moved to ten-o-see at a young age so the Michigan teams followed me. Now I live in Texas and still love all things Detroit and raising my kids to love the same=) No Texas teams for us here although I do love going to watch the Texas Stars play specially when the Griffs are in town.

Ya exactly. Like honestly I don't hate Abby I think he's pretty good, and he works hard but he isn't a first line player. If we ever do get healthy I wouldn't mind trying these lines, just to at least try out.....

Tatar- helm- abdelkader
Cleary/miller - Anderson- tootoo/eaves

I always wonder why so many put tootoo on the last line. He has one heck of a shot to be wasted on the last line with scrubs. a tootoo helm abby line would be awesome i think.

#2375200 Has the Detroit diamond lost it's shine?

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 28 March 2013 - 01:45 PM

i don't see why many players would want to come to detroit.  a terrible city with an average, declining hockey team.


there are much nicer places to play, with much better teams to be on.


it sucks for wings fans, but that's the reality of it.

Because we all know that all of the players on the team live right off of 10 in the middle of Detroit.....declining? I wouldn't go that far... transitioning and retooling sure. You and 50-Cent make it sound like before too long we will be the next bluejackets.

As long as someone smashes stupid pavelski and his stupid face I will be happy no matter what.


Wings win this one big.

Well per his facebook it's lids. so maybe not?

#2371066 Perry Re-signs w/ Ducks

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 19 March 2013 - 03:06 PM

Holland must of low balled Perry. Holland fails again to sign someone way over what they are worth. To be honest I think it's all the fault of one which will not be named. He's done this and has ruined the league.

huskins was doing good. not sure why he was even sat in the first place and why we have held on to Q for so long.

#2366667 Player punches ref - Where is the respect?

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 08 March 2013 - 01:26 PM

I don't think the game has changed that much to be honest, I'm pretty young though(1989) so I can't say I lived through the 80's, but when I go back and look I see the same stuff.


For example how many games would Messier get now for this hit?


Or good ole' Dino


There are a ton more, hockey is a very emotional and physical game. And terrible incidents will happen, and I really don't think they are more common, they are probably just more exposed.

I'm not sure i really understand how those hits compare to a player suckering a ref........maybe that's just me.

Win or lose as long as Pavelski gets his stupid face smashed I will be happy.

Man I really hope the Wings destroy them on the 3rd. I want to hear Mr Ed the jackass cry.
