I doubt it. But we would love it!

 

Me too!  He'd punch so many guys.  Like, all the time he'd be punching guys.  Punching guys is awesome!




#2557017 slava voynov suspended after domestic violence arrest

Posted by DeGraa55 on 16 December 2014 - 02:32 AM

Hopefully his contract will get voided and they send his wife beating disgusting animal ass back to Russia.what a douchebag


Now while I'm not defending him this might be too far.

I've always been a firm believer people deserve a second chance. He should be suspended for the full year. Then like NFL if there is a second incident banned for life.

Rather someone does something major or minor once is an accident twice is a habit or whatever the saying is.

So after a long suspension and after jail time counseling etc etc he shoukd get a second and FINAL chance.

McGrattan and Engelland will make a man out of him yet.  

 

Wouldn't McGrattan need to spend more than 6:30 minutes with him per night to have any sort of impact at all?  I literally spend more time on the toilet per day than Brain McGrattan does playing hockey on game night.

Great post finally someone is sharing my views on toughness. A few years ago guys like Dmac, Downie or even Shanahan would have wiped the floor with enemies but now the team is a bunch of small fairies that's too easy to intimidate and that's against a Leafs team that didn't even ice Orr and McClaren. Disgusting for a team that once had the heavyweight belt. And people are still wondering why the season ticket list turned from a waiting list to running commercials... The mixture just isn't there. Former Wings were exciting to watch because they were built in skill, grit and an overall hardworking hockey club who could beat the other team in many ways and stood up for each other. The Lemieux incident nowadays would result in a crying for Quinta instead of taking justice in the own hand and let someone go Berserk soon sad

 

 

So your blaming poor ticket sales on the fact we don't fight anymore.... Would have nothing to do with the economy.

 

I would love for you to explain to Bob Probert's wife and 4 kids as well as countless other familys that lost someone way too soon because it will sell more tickets. Ignoring the long term effects of head trauma due to toughness is ignorance.

I agree with your position on fighting, but I don't really want to make his a pro vs. anti fighting thread. 

 

And you're right, I am assuming people would react differently.  That's because in all my life, I've never known a sports fan who was ok with with a questionable referee decision if said decision wasn't in their teams' favor.  Occasionally fans will begrudgingly accept a refs' decision if it's too obvious to ignore, or else the outcome of the decision is inconsequential.  But if it matters at all, every fan will always take their teams' side.  That's what being a fan is all about.  So if Smith is winning it's "let em' go ref" and if he's losing it's, "they need to get involved earlier". 

 

Same with penalties.  Think about it.  People ***** and moan about the refs CONSTANTLY on this site, but conveniently leave out the part about how the Wings get more powerplays than almost every other team in the league.  Pretty mum on that one, because it helps us out. 

 

Cause other teams are mean and we're nice  :innocent:

#2555829 Babcock "I don't think it will be my final year here"

Posted by kipwinger on 11 December 2014 - 02:32 PM

*sigh* as long as it doesn't come from the insiders all these  rumors are just that rumors.

 

The media seems to have a hard time getting a simple fact:

Babcock won't negotiate during the season, period.

 

I'm already prepared to see him coaching Crosby & Co. next year

 

No doubt.  Stupid suck ass media.  All they do is speculate and fear monger.  Not the kind of thing frankgrimes is into.  Nope.  No way.  Errr....wait

Besides Mandela was a communist and a criminal to the state.  He was arrested numorous times for sedious activities and tried for treason.
 


What's your opinion on guys like George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Ben Franklin, or John Adams?

Because ten games this year is better?


Jesus Christ what is wrong with people these days.


He was hurt. Now he is healthy. We get it. You want him to fail so you could tell us all how right you are. In the mean time, we are just gonna enjoy this team instead of s***ting on every little thing.

#2554045 Kings fined $100K for allowing Slava Voynov to practice w/ team

Posted by frankgrimes on 05 December 2014 - 10:42 AM

The NHL actions against Voynov and Kings are disgusting.

And PA (what a worthless entity!) is even more disgusting now.

 

Ya sure an entity that's protecting workers rights and the well being of their employees is worthless unbelievable.

 

The NHLs action against Voynov will and should be a lot harder if he did beat up his wife I mean what kind of ***** does someone has to be to  beat up his wife. If he is that tough how about going toe toe with Caine Velasquez...If I'm the owner of the Kings and it turns out that he is guilty I would void his contract, period.
