#2451536 Pray for Pekka Rinne

Posted by evilmrt on 07 November 2013 - 08:38 AM

Meanwhile, I really do hope and yes, even pray, that Rinne makes a full recovery. That is not how we, as Wings fans, want to see anyone go out... Much less one that has been a decent rival in the past. Thanks for the updates.

Is Dan Cleary the secret lovechild of Ken Holland? What is this garbage?

#2451262 Philly Capitals line brawl

Posted by evilmrt on 05 November 2013 - 08:06 PM

Flyers Say Brawl Has United The Team


They're such a joke. I hope they tank the rest of the season and lose the lottery.


Bottom of the barrel goons. That is all. 


But hey, in a city like Philly, you don't have to win games to sell tickets, you just have to punch people in the back of the head.

Quincey holds back Smith as far as development goes.

#2444120 Monday 1 PM start time?

Posted by evilmrt on 14 October 2013 - 09:24 AM

The afternoon Columbus Day games have been going on for years now. Do you guys all have amnesia?


Also, how is this much different from people going to a Tigers game on a weekday afternoon? There are a lot of suits and other people taking a "three-period-lunch" at these usually. 

#2443337 10/10 GDT: Coyotes 4 at Red Wings 2

Posted by evilmrt on 11 October 2013 - 10:10 AM


They HAVE to buy him out. 7 more years of this bum yachting around the ice? No thanks. It's infuriating to watch him play. I always cut the big oaf some slack in the past because "yada yada playoff beast only a 3.9M cap hit yada yada". But no more. He's setting a bad pace on that 2nd line, and a toxic example for the rest of the team. To me, Franzen's play is the key reason why the Wings get accused of not bringing it night-to-night. You throw him on either of the two tops line and "presto", they suck: no cycle, no drive, no north-south game to speak of.


Weiss wil be fine. At least he's a digger. Alfredsson will be fine. You can't put Franzen anywhere.


I actually think they will buy him out, by the way. Unless he scores 30 - 40 goals this year. I'll chew off my own scrotum if he does.


Come on Franzen!!! You can dooooo it! 

#2443297 is anyone happy right now?

Posted by evilmrt on 11 October 2013 - 12:31 AM

You're a ray of sunshine, aren't you?
I'm not happy that we lost but I'm pretty sure the sky isn't falling.

I think everyone expected an upgrade from the team that only squeaked into the playoffs last season and overachieved big time to force a game 7 with Chicago. Other than DD (which we already had), the verdict is still out on that.

I want to know what they practiced. Bab's system sucks. Period!

Fair accusation. If the team is mentally foggy after a four day break, instead of fresh and ready to go, then the first one to blame is the coach. And then if not the coach, the GM for not creating the optimal chemistry.

#2442775 Will young talent ever speak out against Wings philosophy?

Let's keep this on topic about hockey and not a discussion of what makes America great.


One of the best mod comments ever. HAHAHA

#2441347 Patrick Roy goes crazy on Bruce Boudreau

Posted by evilmrt on 03 October 2013 - 01:22 PM

Ah, Roy is pretty amusing. However, he can't possibly do that all season long without having a crack-up. 



Me thinks this might be a tactic to get the Avs fired up, much was said last season about the team's apathetic attitude and lack of passion. 

#2441198 10/2 GDT : Sabres 1 at Red Wings 2

Posted by evilmrt on 02 October 2013 - 09:44 PM

Sloppy game, couldn't convert on the PP or the penalty shot. Miller kept Buffalo in the game. Going to have to do way better than that against the better teams. Those fans leaving with a minute left only up one boggles myf****** mind and makes us look stupid on national TV. Empty seats again really bothered me. Oh well, everything will get better as the season goes along. Big weekend in Detroit sports coming up. Go Wings!


Just wait until Leafs Nation shows up and embarrasses us further. Maybe it will wake them up, though.

Steve? Seriously? 


Too much sun down in Florida, Stevie? 

#2440158 10/1 NHL Out of Town GDT - Opening Night

Posted by evilmrt on 01 October 2013 - 11:33 AM

Leafs / Habs. This is the new division, I want to see what's up. Chicago? F em. Ovie just carried the Olympic Torch, he'll be on fire. Excuse the pun. That Jets / Oilers game is boring, but I will keep my eye on the EDM kids as the season goes on.

#2439782 Mantha is crushing the Q, 4 goals and an assist tonight

Posted by evilmrt on 29 September 2013 - 11:49 AM

Plenty of room for improvement in the Q this season. He only made the SECOND All-star squad last season, bronze for Junior Canada, and no individual trophies or awards. If he keeps pace, he'll make first squad and take some scoring or mvp awards, perhaps help lead Canada to gold, and then be AHL eligible next season. Sounds good to me.

How the Fudge is there this thread and not a Samuelsson one?
