#1999913 Fire sale in Chicago?

Posted by newfy on 15 June 2010 - 02:34 PM

Well, for all of what amounts to a lot of wishful thinking by Wings fans, that the Hawks get ripped apart and become one season wonders, anybody care to put their money where their mouth is? Anybody care to make a prediction for the Hawks for next season and the season next?

Here's mine: Hawks will compete for Central title both years. Hawks will make playoffs both years. Hawks will reach Conference Finals at least one more time in the next two seasons.

Anybody else care to put a prediction out there for the record?

I'm not sure if I can count newfy's statement "The hawks are absolutely f***ed next season" as I don't know what that means? Does that mean they won't make the playoffs?

I meant that their team is not going to be anything close to what it was this year because of the retarded contracts they handed out. They very well may end up like Tampa Bay.

Stamkos, Vinny, St Louis and Downie are all solid players but somehow they absolutely sucked last year. I don't think chicago will be quite as bad as Tampa but they very well might end up finishing in the 7-11 range in a season or 2

Now Hawks fans will come to realize that the salary cap is going to decimate their team.

Watching that douchebag 20 Cent hoist the cup would be only slightly less nauseating than when Crosby did it.

This is the quietest my dad has ever been during a sporting match. I mean, even when the Hawks scored he just sat there, staring at the TV. I think he's afraid if he talks, the Flyers will score 6 unanswered goals or something. :lol:

This thread is full of funny. A bunch of people who probably wouldn't even know what the Chicago Tribune looks like if not for this ridiculousness that shouldn't have been printed, commenting on the quality of a paper that you don't even read, in a city you've never been to or haven't spent a significant amount of time in. What's even funnier is that some of you have said about 10x worse about Pronger and other players, insinuating they're women/feminine and/or ***, totally unaware of the offensiveness of those statements.....all the while using the cop-out that because this is the internet, that somehow makes it better.

The Trib shouldn't have printed that, I'm in agreement with you there. My dad even told me this morning he was surprised they went with it, since the Sun-Times is usually the paper that runs the low-brow stuff. That said, if you think this is indicative of the paper as a whole or the quality of the work they do put out, you're crazy.

Have been to Chicago every summer since I was 6 so about 20 times and have family there. Actually a great town. But the Hawks bandwagon and their fans are hardly something to rep that city. The Trib is quite insightful and definitely better than the Free Press sports section. This is a fail on their part though regardless of what they have done here, it really makes zip sense for them to "shoot back" at Pronger simply because he is a troll and stole some pucks. They are both hilarious in my mind. You are doing a lot of the same commenting on things you have not a lot of knowledge about either friend.



I agree the Hawks have bandwagon fans, my father unfortunately was stuck surrounded by them at the game on Sunday. I've had to sit next to them at games, so I'm not arguing about their fan base having a lot of turds. Every fan base for every team in every sport has idiots. The Trib shouldn't have run the picture, it was pretty stupid of them to do it. I even fired off an email to the sports editor about it.

However, some of the comments people on this site have made about Pronger and other players make that picture look like a kitten in a basket holding a ball of yarn. Offensive is offensive, whether it's a message board or a newspaper.


#1995690 Why Holmstrom

Posted by SouthernWingsFan on 07 June 2010 - 07:14 AM

In this day and age of big speedy forwards, and great two way players, why in the world would the Wings resign Holmstrom? He is only good for the powerplay, he is a liability on defense, & my grandma can skate faster than him. This was our chance to get younger, faster, bigger with Free agency. We signed Lidstrom, okay fine, still think we paid too much, but I'm okay with it. I'm not okay with the human pylon being resigned. We probably should have kept Leino instead of Holmstrom seeing as how he is playing right now. I'm also starting to think we should have kept Steve Yzerman & let Holland walk too, that was a bad move for the future Holland, you blew it!

*facepalm and a half*

It's easy to say we should've kept Leino AFTER THE FACT and AFTER HE'S FINALLY DOING WELL. He barely did squat here during the trade so I don't regret whatsoever getting rid of him. More power to him doing well in Philly.

Babcock manages Holmstrom great. When he feels it is necessary, he puts him in a reduced role on even strength if he feels that Holmstrom can't keep up speed wise. Holmstrom is still a decent option on the top or second line when Babcock feels that his speed/lack thereof won't be an issue.

Lidstrom signed for less than he did last year, he still gave the Wings a discount and is a steal money wise for being one of the best defensemen in the league.

Holland is still one of the better GMs in the league, by other peers in the NHL.

Your post is a bad one, really really bad.

Such a dumb game to watch, so rattled the Flyers won't be playing for the Cup at home. Hopefully they can pull it off in game 7 though.

#1979941 WCSF Game 5 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Sharks 2

Posted by Marty Barry on 08 May 2010 - 12:41 PM

I didn't know that we were so pathetic:

Never over a 7 day period have I developed as much hatred for a fan base as I have during this past week. Since this series started I have lost respect more and more for the Red Wings fans. For an original 6 franchise that has won many cups, and have won recently they are the biggest bunch of a-hole cry babies ever. I don't know if its because of the modern day blogging or how ridiculous the media has become now-a-days with needing to make everything into a story but I have read so much ridiculous s**t over the past 7 days that I want to puke. Whether its the cries of "The refs hate us, the NHL wants us to lose", or the BS blogging quotes:

"How many seeds of doubt were planted in the minds of a surprisingly childish Sharks team tonight (Joe Thornton(notes), third period)?" -Matt Saler

"Punk. Thornton, Patrick Marleau(notes), and Dany Heatley(notes) have taken pages out of the Anaheim Ducks' book all series long, trying to instigate and toss cheap shots at the Red Wings' stars, just like Ryan Getzlaf(notes) and Katy Perry do. Classy bunch. I hope the Wings finally have a little "hate on" for the Sharks after this one, because Thornton most certainly showed his true colors tonight, and they aren't teal." -George Malik

I love how someone can call the Sharks team childish after 3 games in a row an entire fan base blamed their losses on referees and then proceeded to wear tin foil hats to the first home game because they feared a conspiracy against the NHL's "precious Red Wings".

And this George Malik guy is a joke. I don't know how anyone can call Thornton or Marleau punks, especially when their team is employing the biggest punk of all time Todd Bertuzzi. Marleau and Thornton are completely the opposite of punks, they are soft. I read that Red Wings fans who commented on yahoo sports page said "you know what your getting when you read George Malik's blog, so you can't be mad". Yea you are getting an idiot who sees only through Red glasses.

I'm pretty much done venting I am just praying that the Sharks can win on saturday for several reasons:
1. We can move past this Red Wings mental curse finally.
2. The NHL media can shut the f**k up about choke acts.
3. Red Wing fans/bloggers can cry themselves a river but atleast it won't be in the news anymore.
4. My hatred for the Wings fans/bloggers can be changed to pity.

Lastly I feel bad for the players of the Red Wings franchise because as much as I hate the team they have some amazing players and future hall-of-famers, it's sad they are disgraced with such pathetic fans/bloggers.

DONE!
