#2483254 Wings go to Mexico

Posted by evilmrt on 10 February 2014 - 07:34 PM

Ah, the good ol' days where Scotty took the non-olympic Wings down to a mini-camp in Florida are long gone.




#2483252 NHL players will not participate in 2018 Olympics (Mod Post #99)

Posted by evilmrt on 10 February 2014 - 07:31 PM

 

I agree with your injury theory, but how does the Olympics cost the owners money?

 

It isn't so much about the potential injuries as it is about missing out on potental profits. Imagine some kind of revenue sharing deal with the IOC/host country, as ridiculous as that is. I think that is what they honestly want.

 

"Their property" is playing for free on an international stage. Throw money at them, and they will shut up. Or better yet, replace the Olympic Tournament with an NHL controlled World Cup of Hockey, where money will roll right in to the BoG.

They should be so lucky. That's the Russian curling team captain.

You've sold me on watching women's curling. Thank you, sir. I almost missed this amazing sports event. 




#2481795 Olympics provide much needed time off for Red Wings

Posted by evilmrt on 06 February 2014 - 06:08 PM

Helm getting rest, datsyuk hopefully getting his legs back in another situation less important (to us), Weiss going through his rehab assignment, Howard (hopefully) finding his form on a larger stage, plus the confidence that comes from representing your country.

As long as there isn't any major injuries during the tournament, it could be fruitful.
It just seems high risk/high reward,
(The higher risk being the obvious) pavel, and Z's back.

 

Good call. This could be the turning point for him this season. We can hope, anyhow.

A new General Manager and/or Head Coach would be a good start.

#2478248 Tim Thomas is a dope: It's a scientific fact.

Then you have too much time on your hands, and end up getting into weird hobbies like collecting American Girls dolls. Then you start going to American Girl doll conventions and everyone thinks you're a pervert.

Just sayin'.


What???


#2478219 Trade deadline fast approaching - who should we target?

Posted by evilmrt on 28 January 2014 - 04:53 PM

Holland won't make a trade, you guys should know that by now.


#2475160 Canadian Olympians trust, believe in Babcock

Posted by evilmrt on 21 January 2014 - 02:18 PM

Not the same at all. Babs is a great, world-class coach. That isn't the issue with the Wings at all. The issue is if he is the right coach for the team Holland keeps putting together.




#2474327 1/18 GDT: Kings 2 @ Red Wings 3 (Shootout)

Posted by evilmrt on 19 January 2014 - 10:59 AM

The goal was a joke, and the NHL needs serious reform in terms of how these games are officiated.

With that said, I think the Wings deserve it after so many bad calls against them. It's nice for it to go their way for once.

But I'll be pretty disgusted if this is a regular thing.

Good old time hockey! Yes!! Torts was fired up and so was his team. It's a great thing to see all this passion. Not all the time, of course, but games like this shouldn't happen once every ten years in this league.

It was time for this to happen two years ago. It's about time.
