#2335060 [Retired] Official Lockout Thread

Posted by evilmrt on 30 November 2012 - 11:08 PM

Somehow, ESPN gets it right on Bettman:

We’ve all forgotten what the definition of commissioner used to be. It’s faded over the last couple of decades. Call me naïve but last time I checked Bettman is the commissioner of the league. That includes the owners, players, zamboni drivers and Blackhawks Ice Girls. When exactly did the word commissioner become “puppet for the owners?”

Surprised to see no news about Zetterberg's debut in Switzerland. He got a goal and an assist (story in Swedish). Anyway, add this pic to the op:

Another good pic...Wings/Zug teammates Z and Brenner hanging out by the Zug locker room:

Well this just in, apparently the league is fining the Wings and undisclosed amount due to Jimmy D's comments. Here's the link.


HAHA! And Jimmy D really stuck up for Bettman! I guess that won't happen again...

whos the real ahole here? The players or the owners?

Both. After reading this interview, it is painfully clear that they both are pretty disgusting.

#2329183 Wings to Europe: Tracking which DRW players are playing where

Posted by evilmrt on 17 September 2012 - 02:35 PM

Damien brunner is already in Switzerland. He'll play with his former team, EV Zug.

That is only until the AHL season starts. He talked about this in the press recently...just playing a few games for EV Zug and taking care of loose ends in Switzerland, and then playing with the Griffs this season until the lockout ends (if it ends).

“The plan right now is to go back to Switzerland for a couple of weeks and then be back when the American Hockey League season starts, adjust to the small ice and get ready for (Red Wings) training camp,'' Brunner said.

He said if the NHL locks out players on Sept. 15, he'll return to Switzerland and play a couple of games for Zug, his hometown team, and then join the Griffins. He is exempt from waivers, enabling the Red Wings to assign him to the AHL.

“For three weeks there isn't really much to do here,'' Brunner said. “I would rather go back and get a couple of games to get in shape and come over with good confidence level and then get right into it.''

The Griffins season opener is Oct. 12.

Absolutely agree. Although, Mr. Ilitch probably won't get even most of what he wants out of this CBA.

LOL @ the "you're such good friends with Bettman, why don't you call him?" comment

#2326919 New Commissioner?

Posted by evilmrt on 26 August 2012 - 09:43 PM

Shanny. Many on here called it a couple years ago when it became clear that he was positioning himself for a league job. Bettman might have to voluntarily retire first, though.

#2326836 Red Wings Alumni Showdown Roster

Joe Nieuwendyk

I guess the excuses for Yzerman to not participate since he's the GM of the Tampa Bay Lightning are invalid now that the GM of the Dallas Stars is playing for Toronto in the Alumni game?

#2326664 winter classic question...

Posted by evilmrt on 23 August 2012 - 09:52 PM

Probably not, since its an official NHL event, with the NHL logos and names and all of that.

That being said, it could easily go ahead re-branded as something else since its being held in a non-nhl venue. Probably without the current names and logos...maybe some old throwback names and logos would do the trick (Detroit Cougars vs. Toronto St. Patricks, for example).
