#2176876 Hudler's Future

Posted by ben_usmc on 18 May 2011 - 07:32 PM


So what exactly is your rationale here?? Hard working players that gut it out and command respect from the locker room and the coach don't belong? Ahh, I finally understand your first post now..... Posted Image

Actually wtf is going on??? More Cleary hate? :lol:

Don't you ever steal this award away from Bertuzzi or Happy Huds from this offseason. Truthfully, you saying you watched EVERY single game makes your "opinions" seem quite a bit off. Oh well, guess I had blinders on to everyone but Datsyuk or Hank and can't appreciate the hard working players that you need on a team.....

And if you think saying "hard working" for Danny is something that shouldn't have him on the team then this is going even further off track man. Seriously.

I didn't think Bertuzzi was overrated by fans on here (most thought eh), the coaching staff is a different story though. I seriously was just very unimpressed by Cleary, maybe it was the injures that caught up to him, but manly in the playoffs not only did I feel like he wasn't playing up to his capabilities, he actually became a liability on the ice. He wasn't Hudler bad, but when he was on the ice you could count on him turning it over.

I don't hate cleary and wouldn't be upset if we kept him, because every player should be allowed a down year, I'm just saying if we could trade him away I wouldn't shed a tear.

Do we have a candidate for "worst post of the year" award?

I need not comment in the fashion I wanted to since others put it in the same baffled outrage I would have, but what in gods name were you thinking.. progressively worse yet being increasingly more productive? :hysterical:

It's not about saying something unpopular.. but saying something extremely stupid.

Purely going by point production is the reason we had a scrub like Jason Williams playing for our team at one point,they only tell half of a story. He was a scoring monster before he went down, but when he came back he wasn't nearly as effective. I know he'll be back next year and hope he can kick it back up a gear (IMO), but if he can't don't expect me to be a person saying I told you so or anything, I'd much rather eat crow.

That title belongs to Eaves or Stuart.

post season wise it could go to A LOT of players

He was #2 in goal scoring on the team this year, and he probably would have been #1 if he hadn't been hit in the ankle with a slapshot. He's fast, he hits hard, he's great defensively, and he never takes a shift off; indeed, I think he's one of the hardest-working players in the league when he's on the ice. He was, in this season, one of our best forwards.

Were you even paying attention during the regular season? I don't see how you could have made this statement if you'd actually been watching the games.

Sorry for having a difference of opinion, I watched every game this year and since he came back from the injury was nothing special. He certainly was not one of our best forward nor did he look like hwas working hard (especially in the playoffs) of course on here apparently we don't allow others to have their own opinions. Cleary is the most overrated player by LGW

also my 2nd statement was meant about hudler

Why do you want a gritty, hard-working player like Cleary gone?

Because he has progressively has gotten worse

when you have to work that hard to justify a player even being on the roster, he most likely shouldn't be there

#2176406 Which conference would you rather have the Wings in?

Posted by ben_usmc on 17 May 2011 - 01:46 AM

The West because it's a better conference

As long as we have some speed and youth in I'm all for it...I said Hudler as I think I glanced up and saw him turn it over again

agreed, we are beat the puck at both ends of the ice every damn time

Am I the only one who would rather go in seeded 3rd so we don't have to face Anaheim?

nope, ideally

We go in 3rd face a banged up LA team. SJ takes on the Ducks and it is a war, and Chi/Van.

He absolutely drives me nuts with his inconsistent play. And yeah, even MORE than some of the others' inconsistent play. <_< He's obviously got what it takes to be a force and he will not come through - for whatever reasons.

because we could have kept Hossa who actually plays defense, has heart, and has even dropped the damn gloves. Mule is such a heartless ***** it pisses me off

#2139616 Babcock Underperforming?

Posted by ben_usmc on 31 March 2011 - 04:33 PM

someone needs to do something more than justf****** talk. I could give a f*** less about what babcock has to say how about he ices a team taht at least gives a s*** for more than 2 games a month. I have been a person that has said for a while we will still go deep we just don't care etc. But to watch such uninspired hockey is insulting and i find it more insulting they force fans to have to pay so much money to see players just go through somef****** motions. At least s***ty teams like Isles, Avs, try.

I thought he'd be an extremely effective 3rd liner. However he seems to be consistantly improving. You can tell he has worked his hands alot and they are slowly catching up with his speed, if he can completly put those 2 features together he may very well be a 1st liner. Right now I do think he would be an effective 2nd liner, he has something this team lacks and that is heart. He doesn't take a shift off adn if he's knocked down he pops right back up, also you basically have to move the camera out anytime opposing teams player is on a breakway because he back checks like it's the SC finals every s***.

Get Craig Anderson from Ottawa and pretty much send him with the Cup...

#2111410 And he does it again!

Posted by ben_usmc on 06 February 2011 - 03:16 PM

I don't think he should be suspended, I do however think he should have his career ended by a cheap shot in the next game
