#2577460 Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by Mckinley25 on Yesterday, 12:54 PM

 
That's actually the proposed title for the future made for tv movie about our lives together.  Katie and Kip steal the Declaration of Independence. 
 
But in all seriousness, she's got all the traits I require of a potential romantic interest.  She's from Michigan, loves hockey, is appropriately weighted, and has the pointy facial features of an Elvish Princess. 
 
Anybody know if she likes Motley Crue?


I've never heard of a chunky elvish princess, but that could just because of the unrealistic standards by mainstream middle earth mass media.


#2576910 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by Mckinley25 on 01 March 2015 - 08:42 PM

 
Why? I was reading he got frustrated and went home to Sweden. For the second year in a row Kenny got something in return for a player who was :crybaby:
 
Edit:
Oh wait, my mistake, Backman went home. Still, Janmark is 22, just like Jarnkrok, he should have played a game or 2 on the Wings by now... Good trade.


I agree it was a good trade, I just knew people would be mad. And they are.

Anybody been watching what Nestrasil has been doing for the Canes since we lost him to waivers? 4+8 and a +7 in his 20 games so far. Good for himn


Further evidence of our great drafting/development.


#2573835 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by Mckinley25 on 23 February 2015 - 05:48 PM

Again - the NHLPA has a say in every CBA concerning the fines/suspensions that the NHL may levy upon any player.
 
It's this very same NHLPA that continues to convince the BOG that fighting needs to be tolerated.


This of course invalids nothing that I've stated.


#2573631 Zetterberg leaves after 2nd Period; "upper body injury"

Posted by Mckinley25 on 22 February 2015 - 08:41 PM

I'm not disagreeing here but the league won't oblige so what's the solution then. I mean if there's another option I'd like to hear it.What I'm trying to say here is this: if players have answer for the crap team mates are doing it will create accountability within that locker room because I don't think Seguin would be happy dealing with someone like Orr because Benn didn't want to answer for his cheapshot.I mean if the fines were harsh and the suspensions lengthy then ok but they aren't.Just to put things into perspective Avery got 6 games for sloppy seconds quote .. Cowen not even a hearing neither will Benn so should I really have fait in this safety department?Kliq yeah my bad what I mean is basically protection for our players whether they are stars or not doesn't matter to me. Star players were just used because if the recent incident.


Frank, I'll agree with you on one thing, Avery getting more games for his retort than blatant head shots is wrong.

I'm not defending Avery, but it illustrates an issue we see everyday where violence is accepted and sex isn't. Look at how censorship is handled on TV, murder is fine on prime time but show a nipple or backside and its a no go.

It's no wonder everybody acts out violently, it's the only socially acceptable way to cope with sexual repression! Well save for Brian MacGratton, I mean his girlfriend is hooooooott!!


#2572824 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by Mckinley25 on 21 February 2015 - 12:05 PM

The thing is Frank, when you work for a company you are generally considered a representative of that company and product. In this case he is the product. It's not like he's just spouting off sexist remarks to his buddies at the bar, he was using social media to discuss the Maple Leafs and I'm certain (despite our opinions of that organization) his comments did not reflect the ethical standards he is tasked with upholding as an employee.

I don't know all the details of what precipitated this tweet or what spurred the apology, but from the perspective of the Leafs organization it was certainly warranted.


#2572670 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by Mckinley25 on 20 February 2015 - 05:24 PM

I'm not sure any Toronto Maple Leaf should be speaking in the diminutive about any other group of people.  Being a Maple Leaf is about as low as it gets.  You're about one rung up the ladder from the guy who mops the floors at a sperm bank.  


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


#2572495 Getzlaf calls Ovechkin a diver, O says "I have hair"

Posted by Mckinley25 on 19 February 2015 - 03:24 PM

Isn't she the US of A?


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.

:lol:
 
It's pretty obvious to me that frank's favorite NHL team is Canada.


We'll have you seen Canada's girlfriend? She's hot.


#2572391 Next Number to be retired

Posted by Mckinley25 on 19 February 2015 - 12:52 AM

After looking at the photo more closely, the sun doesn't reflect off his head the way it does his body so I'm leaning towards fake now.

I wouldn't mind lowering the super high exclusivity of our retired numbers policy.
In addition to you guys other arguments supporting #13 and #40, just being dominant two way players who spent their entire careers in Detroit and representing the Wings with 100 percent class should be enough. Bob Gainey is retired in Montreal I believe, so the Eurotwins should be up there.


There's a color version of the photo on Gordiehowe.com, I think it's real.

Is that what he's doing?


#2567511 1/31 GDT : Islanders 1 vs. Red Wings 4

Posted by Mckinley25 on 31 January 2015 - 04:11 PM

If a newb was reading this thread I'm pretty sure they'd be convinced we are all 12 year old boys

I've been here ten years and I still think that.


#2567212 Marchenko recalled from GR... Ouellet sent down

Posted by Mckinley25 on 30 January 2015 - 07:19 PM

Why are they so keen on keeping Doan. I mean he's 38 and clearly past his prime


Doan likely isn't interested in leaving.


#2566896 1/29 GDT - Red Wings 1 at Lightning 5

Posted by Mckinley25 on 29 January 2015 - 08:34 PM

 
He's struggling a little but we're not losing games are we?   It's great that he's getting the experience he is getting.  How is he going to get "NHL experience" if he doesn't play in the NHL?


I agree, even with success at the AHL level, it's difficult and unlikely to have immediate NHL success. He needs to play and this is the perfect situation for him.
