#2639199 The Rise and Fall of Drew Miller

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 November 2015 - 08:09 PM

I am being serious when I say, I PROMISE you Bill is NOT a 2nd account of mine! :lol:


Drew Miller does his job and earns his money.  BTW Bill, if EVERY draft pick a GM selected made the team then there would be 7 new players on the team every year. Not feasable nor possible.  I hate losing anyone for free, but guess what, even I can agree, it happens.  A lot of times they just sign somewhere else, but sometimes they go back into the draft and sometimes they get picked off waivers.


I'll say it again, I am sure Holland was up front with Landon and told him that he is doing this in order to give him a chance at an NHL career because with Larkin now and the rest of the prospects knocking on the door in a year or two, there just isn't any room for him in Detroit in the near future.


Hey guys, what if tomorrow night Ferraro skates around Miller and scores the GWG? Do you think we'll ever stop hearing about it?

Posted by Z and D for the C on 24 October 2015 - 10:58 PM

Has anyone noticed that the Wings can't even complete a pass? It's like the second they get the puck on their stick they just have to throw it to the player furthest up the ice.


I'm worried it's just Blash's system at this point. The players are hustling, they're not being lazy, they're just making terrible s***ty plays. Defensive zone coverage is awful and no one has any puck support. All other teams have to do is rush the puck carrier and we do something stupid with it and turn it over every time.

#2632815 Where Are The W-L Results?

If you're looking for W-L results, any hockey website should have them. Like nhl.com or tsn for example. Many of these sites also include breakdowns of OT loses, SO loses, etc. You should be able to find playoff records there too.

#2632364 Roster Moves by the Wings

Posted by nawein on 22 October 2015 - 08:31 PM

Drew Miller is a fantastic defensive forward and an excellent penalty killer. Our PK being bad has nothing to do with Miller not belonging on this roster and a lot to do with some of the other guys being terrible on the PK. Miller plays a necessary role that I don't want any of the other guys you listed playing because Miller is better at it than they would be. The truth is we take penalties. We then need to kill those penalties. Miller is better at it than most of the guys we got. He fills a role, hence, role player. Not wanting Miller because he's not as good overall as some of those other guys is like not wanting a kicker on a football team because he's not as good if an athlete as some wide reciever. It's stupid.

Then do something about it next time you play them.  Mentioning it won't stop it.

Tf you want him to do? Watch him like a hawk and slide tackle him as he attempts to run into goalie?

"AHHH we play Montreal? Let me sit in the corner and wait for that number 11 muhahaha soon as he attempts to run into the goalie I shall teleport in the middle and greet his legs with my beard muahhaha!"

Making a statement goes a long way actually.

Not saying anything wouldn't. I'm glad he called him out. It's out there in the media now and his track record is now on public display for fans and league.
Zberg did the captain thing by being vocal, basically calling out the league and montreal. Nothing more the Wings can do about it unless you're suggesting they fight him.

#2628832 Interesting Article about NHL Veterans Not finding jobs

Posted by number9 on 08 October 2015 - 12:22 AM


It makes sense. When you have certain guys like Toews & Kane just as an example making huge amounts of money, rather then paying a vet 2 or 3 mil a year, it's more affordable cap wise to play youth on an entry level or close to an entry level contract. I wonder if these guys held out at the beginning of UFA hoping to get paid more??

Economically it makes sense. Reward the elite and exploit the poor. Let the middle class players burn. And the world turns.

#2626318 Kane case headed to grand jury

Posted by kipwinger on 22 September 2015 - 11:01 AM


What?  I took the position that no one knows what the facts are, and our personal bias will in the meantime fill in the blanks as to what we 'think' happened.  That is called having an open mind before the actual trial starts where they present the facts. 


It seems that you have already assumed Kane is guilty, and that anything anyone says contrary is messed up to you.  That, my friend is your bias, and exactly what I am referring to.


Any more messed up than thinking that a woman who reported a crime is a money hungry liar (as quite a few around here have not so subtly insinuated)?


This woman has done NOTHING to have her character called into question.  She reported an alleged crime, and obeyed the directives of the legal system thereafter. 


What should she have done differently in order to be taken seriously? 


Not talked to the media...oh wait, she didn't. 

Reported the crime immediately...oh wait, she did. 

Refuse to settle the case out of court...Yep, did that too. 


Apparently, if you're a woman (and you want to be taken seriously when reporting a sexual crime), you better have never been drunk or horny in your life because god knows you can't be raped if you made out with a guy in a bar earlier in the night. 


This is shameful. What if you reported a stolen car and everyone assumed you were lying in order to defraud the insurance company?  Oh, that's right, it woudn't happen because nobody is insane enough to assume that kind of thing regularly occurs.  Unless you're a woman, and you report a rape...then you're obviously weaving a nefarious web of deceit. 

The most obnoxious thing about this is that nobody actually believe the b.s. they're spewing. 


If your daughter, or sister, or girlfriend, or wife, or mother reported an alleged sexual assualt, nobody here would think "well she was hitting on that guy at the bar, so I've got to consider the possibility that maybe she just wants his money". 


Nobody.  Would.  Think.  That.

Did you just favorably compare Darren McCarty to Mario Lemieux, Pavel Datsyuk, Doug Gilmour, and Wendell Clark?
