#2065894 Why I'm Thankful Babcock is the Wing's coach

Posted by ben_usmc on 20 November 2010 - 02:16 PM

Babcocks hair would hop off his head and pimp slap all 3 of those guys. If I was the goalie I would have been pissed.

#2061966 Flippula vs Hudler

why does it have to be flip vs hudler? Why can't it be Flip AND Hudler

#2060986 So does anyone else hope Lidstrom comes back next season?

Posted by ben_usmc on 10 November 2010 - 05:02 PM

as I stated in another thread "This may sound wierd but I hope Lidstrom doesn't retire until his abilities start to degenerate probably like 3 years, then we are begging for him to retire. The reason for this is because by then the team will slowly have learned to compencate for losing his talent"

#2048512 Does our "Enforcer" suck?

It seems like our power play is not kicking anyones ass and yes I'm well aware we won with a PP goal

#2047429 10/14 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Stars 4

Posted by ben_usmc on 15 October 2010 - 01:34 PM

Seriously dude? What the heck does the guy need to do to please some people? 2 goals, 4 points through 4 games yet he needs to 'step up'? C'mon...

I was saying the most commonly used phrases on LGW every year around this time. I'm not worried about us at all.

I'm still upset that no one went after Fistric last night. Even more so than losing the game.

If your friend gets hit with a cheap shot, wouldn't you step in there and retaliate against the SOB that did it? Every other team does that, but we don't. No one seemed to care whatsoever, which doesn't show much solidarity.

Now I know the anti-enforcer slappies will point out how Franzen's injury wouldn't have been prevented by retaliation, but still it sucks that this team is so unwilling to stick up for one another in a situation like that.

yeah that really pisses me off, I understand they are professionals but anytime I've ever played a sport if someone cheapshotted a teamate someone on the other team was getting f***ed up. it is astounding how they just shrug that s*** off, I mean as a fan we want to bit the s*** out the player how does someone who is so close just do nothing?

If Big *** George, didn't make people sign contracts before they fight and just immediately hug them I'd be all for trying to get him

good player, but I seriously don't see why everyone is so up in arms about him. He isn't worth the money he's asking for, f*** him

#2014066 Osgood may retire following this season

Posted by ben_usmc on 12 July 2010 - 01:29 PM

I was one of those people who were extremely hard on Ozzy this season; and justly so. But for some reason anytime Ozzy is supposed to be a back up he plays amazing, so I'm all for letting him be the back up for the next year or two.

#2012309 Jard Boll

Posted by ben_usmc on 07 July 2010 - 09:18 PM

Any chance in hell we sign him, he's been a favorite of mine since he 1st primer on the Jackets, plus he is more then just a goon.

#2008976 TSN: Discussion of Modano To Wings

Posted by ben_usmc on 02 July 2010 - 12:31 AM

No educated fan will complain. No one is expecting him to go out and be a force. Talent and hands don't just disappear, and while his legs may show his age, there is no reason to think he won't be able to produce on the 2nd powerplay unit, as well as be an effective third line center. His linemates last year were not top-6 players by any stretch of the imagination, so assuming he could duplicate another .5 ppg season at this age is not unquestionable at all.

When you factor in the intangibles, and mentorship of some our younger players, he would be the perfect fit if we make an addition at all. Better be one year however.

Who the f*** is Modano going to mentor on this team?

Signing him is not what this team needs, so I hope Kenny passes

WTF do you care? If you don't like something that has nothing to do with you then don't make a big deal out of it.

Say good night to all the Dman that go back to get the puck in your world.

Zero help for the defense is just a nightmare.

Goaltenders should be encouraged to play the puck in my opinion, it speeds up the game and they tend to mess up anyways.

Hitting a goaltender is just not fair, they have no way to protect themselves, it's like hitting a punching bag.

Big E will play tougher with a guy like X on his pairing with him knowing someone would always have his back. Not to mention Abby and Konopka or a smaller less tough fighter like Nystrom upfront and we would have a tough team to play against.

Every defense pairing has absolute hammers on them except for if Lids/ Rafi are together. Then upfront you have the perfect balance of toughness and skill with Abby and Konopka on the roster taking care of business hammering the other teams defense and makign sure nobody messes with Datsyuk.

You and I damn well both know Holland won't go after a team like that :(
