#2626205 Todd Ewen Dies

I doubt if you asked Probert in his prime what long term issues he might have as a result of his play he'd have been able to articulate what actually ended up happening.

Who else wishes Jagr still had that mullet in the selfie?  


Hey, remember when you had to get pictures developed and you didn't know what they looked like until you got them back and your deadline for the trading card submission was in like 7 minutes? Those were wild times.

If it was me I would've shown up at the Red Wings training camp because f*** the Islanders.

#2625771 P.K. Subban Donates $10 Million Dollars to Children's Hospita

If I gave away 10 million dollars I'd at least want my name on a building lol


You should leave it in an unmarked envelope on the door step in the dead of night like an unwanted baby at an orphanage.

I'm more partial to anonymous donations. 

I understand the philosophy, but a children's hospital just received ten million dollars, I don't care if he gets a banner on the moon saying what he did, it's a good thing.

#2625342 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

25 is totally "dmacs" number. I mean why shouldn't we hold numbers for druggie idiots who throw their careers down the toilet while thumbing their nose at the organization that made them?

When you punch people all is forgiven.

I don't really like the air brush design style that most helmets utilize, it looks too state fair tshirt boothy.

You should've seen the filter for typing Glendening's name.

#2624228 Curtis Glencross regrets taking hometown discount

Posted by Mckinley25 on 31 August 2015 - 11:04 AM

I am not bitter at all that these guys are making this kind of money. I am just not going to feel empathy for a player because his last contract was 10 million over 4 years and not 12.5 million over 4 years.

I don't think they're asking for your empathy, they're just being interviewed.

He said he expected a contract to be done by now, but teams are'nt offering as much, and he needs a good opportunity to get an extension. The guy should take what he can get and be happy. He'll still make more in a season than alot of people will in a lifetime. I just hate hearing pro athletes complain about money. He's saying he did'nt take the opportunity to "cash in" when he could have. He made plenty of money either way. How many millions does one guy need?

He didn't say he "needed" anything. He's just comparing the situations and how a third liner with most teams up against the cap are no longer a commodity.

You must be upset at every NHLer because they all negotiate for more money than they need.

As far as complaining about it, it's an interview! It's not like he's spouting off on his blog. This is how journalism works, the reporter asks a series of questions and writes up a summary sans questions. He is literally just describing a situation about his employment based on questions asked to him, I don't understand why people are criticizing him.

#2623827 Dan Cleary re-signing still possible?

Posted by Mckinley25 on 24 August 2015 - 11:05 PM

I don't follow this type of Internet sports journalism so I'm not familiar with the standards, but shouldn't the author be citing or referencing a source?

I mean, what's the point of this article otherwise? The Red Wings MIGHT still sign Dan Cleary? Ok, an article stating they might not sign him would be just as valid and just as pointless.

But Datsyuk and Zetterberg go fishing together every summer... Is that not boy love? 

That's MAN love, and it is good.

#2620769 Lovable Dan Cleary update thread

Posted by Mckinley25 on 17 July 2015 - 10:44 AM

I particularily dislike the yellow color.
The point in this is why would you continue to give something money that upsets you?  Regardless of what my reasons are, they are my reasons, just like you may have your reasons to continue giving someone money even though they may disrespect you every single day.  Of course my measely financial withdrawl won't impact the $5 billion Illitch empire, but I like most Americans have a finite amount of resources, and picking several hockey games to go to a year can translate into a small vacation for the family out of the country.   So like the saying goes, I vote with my pocketbook.  And in this case the other guy votes to take his family to Big Bear this year instead of several hockey games. 
When the NHL continually calls hockey, "a product" (and I hate that), then when they stick a product in your face that you don't like, do you buy it out of blind loyalty or do you refuse it if it stinks like runny poopies?

You absolutely CAN boycott, I'm just saying I think that if Dan Cleary playing 20 games upsets you so much that you no longer enjoy going to the games, you're probably being unreasonable. I mean how much did that change the on ice performance? You would have gotten your money's worth had Dan Cleary not played? I don't even think he was the worst player on the ice. It's like boycotting Planters because they put one less peanut in their $10 bags. Does it make that big of a difference?

I mean, because no one is complaining about real problems like how the other side of the restrooms have mirrors in front of the communial urinals, so everyone can see your junk.

Why?  In today's world the best way to get someones attention is through the pocket book.  Don't like what someone is promoting?  Stop giving them money, it's my hard earned money, "you Joe Schmo business owner have made a decision that upsets me, I will refuse to continue supporting your shenanigans until you change them".  

I boycotted the league after the lockout for several months, no games, no reading or discussing...nothing, but ultimately brokedown because I'm a hockey junkie. :cheesy:

I'm certain Illitch has someone right now, working tirelessly to find out why they sold one less ticket last year. And I'm equally certain that said person will any day now make the connection between the unsold ticket and the Dan Cleary signing. Fingers crossed it happens before a new contract is agreed upon!!

Seriously though, given the complexity of building a successful sports franchise and the almost unrivaled success achieved by the Red Wings particularly when faced with league constructed obstacles to hinder continued success, boycotting because of one marginally questionable descision that likely had no effect on the entertainment value of the on ice product, is bordering on ridiculous.

Now boycotting because the water in the drinking troughs in the men's restrooms taste discusting is reasonable.
