I'd rather have him demo a shooter tutor than a tooter shooter...

#2572674 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

From now on when people aren't working hard enough or aren't tough enough I'll refer to them as Maple Leafs.

My niece is throwing a temper tantrum, I told her to stop throwing a maple leaf.
Let's get this around, anything bad just call it a maple leaf.

Car breaks down, it pulled a maple leaf.
Person you don't like, they're a real maple leaf.

It'll be awesome if it gains traction and gets around to Toronto fans, I just wanna see them throwing fits about it.

Wow, take that, girls.

I will fight Morgan Rielly. He can call me a girl the entire time I'm beating his ass.

Which is frustrating when you spend all this time learning a language, are all excited to speak it, go to France, speak French to someone and they speak English back to you because they know you're American and they speak English better than you speak French.


Haha, that is exactly right.  I do it with Arabic all the time.  People in the Middle East are fluent in English and I try to struggle through my Arabic with them to hilarious results.

#2572501 Getzlaf calls Ovechkin a diver, O says "I have hair"

This conversation makes me think of David Lee Roth's "Yankee Rose" for some reason.  I like to think of my America as both a hot chick and a thinly veiled reference to snorting cocaine through a rolled up million dollar bill.

Right, she's hot, but she's super high maintenance and kind of thinks she's better than everyone, but deep down there's good in her, she's just complex.

America doesn't have a girlfriend. We only know Freedom.

^ This.


Zetterberg and Pav have been associated with each other too much. If one goes up and the other doesn't that could cause a lot of controversy. Sad as it is, their pairing is their own demise in terms of jersey retirement XD. Who knows, lets hope for the best, these guys may not be heavily recognized around the US but Detroit's got nothing but love for em!


I'm posting this diatribe in response to your post, but I'm not aiming it at you.  You're didn't do the thing I'm about to rage about, you just referenced it at the bottom of your post. 


Can we please stop with the "nobody recognizes Dats and Z's greatness" crap already?  It's absurd.  The Red Wings, and their two stars, get their just due ALL the time.  A couple years ago TSN listed Datsyuk as the best player in the world.  Wayne Gretzky said he thought our two stars were the best in the business around that same time.  They're both consistently ranked near the top of the league in fantasy player rankings, and I've personally seen everyone from Puck Daddy, to Doc Emrick, to Mike Milbury, to P.J. Stock, to Ron McLean singing their praises.  Even Don "I hate Foreigners" Cherry has been nothing but complimentary of our guys. 


This is just more of this wannabe victim crap that I can't stand about some of our fans.  The league/refs/Bettman/media don't have it out for us.  We're universally considered the finest organization, with some of the finest athletes, in all of professional sports...not just hockey.  It's like some fans think we're not credible if we're not constantly facing some sort of faux adversity.  There's nothing wrong with being dominant AND being recognized for it...this isn't an inspirational sports film. 


Add "the media doens't give Dats and Z credit" to the list of dumb ass cliches that Red Wings fans say.  Right below "Our fans are spoiled by success" and right above "the league wanted Pittsburgh to win". 


Rant over.

I'll post some more pictures tomorrow. But here's me and my cousin at hockeytown cafe. Despite losing he had a great time at his first wings game and we had some great entertainment with a lunatic behind us screaming The whole time (wouldn't be surprised if he was a member here considering what he was saying)

#2569801 Nasty Business-Roussel ejected for cross-check to McQuaid's throat

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 February 2015 - 12:59 PM

If he did that to Lucic, this thread would be titled "Hero Roussel ejected for cross check to Lucic's throat"


An elbow is one thing.....Getting a cross check to the throat is something entirely different .


And yes - Howe only had 2 fights if I remember correctly...He was 1 guy nobody wanted to mess with.


I think Gordie had more than two fights.  It may be that only two fights are remembered or recorded somewhere. Otherwise, he had only one fight besides Fontinato.  That might be right, but it doesn't sound right.


I mean Lilja had way more than two fights.

It's a business, niche sports don't make enough money.


Yea I know, it's just the epitome of greed. Sorry, just hacks me off sometimes.
