#2630631 Roster Moves by the Wings

Posted by Mckinley25 on 13 October 2015 - 11:49 PM

I'm so sick of this STUPID argument!!!! If we had Lindros, Gretzky, Lemieux, and Yzerman all 19 years old, half of Red Wings fans, so drunk on Ken Holland's idiotic excuse for not knowing when players are ready = "over ripening", would say they want them getting first line minutes in Grand Rapids. mIt's the dumbest thing I've ever heard! I swear to God I think Drew Miller gives half the fan base free lower bowl tickets to keep everyone saying how every good young player should develop in Grand Rapids three more years!!

Exactly!! Can you imagine Edmonton fans saying McDavid should get first line minutes in the minors vs. 2nd line minutes in the NHL. Why dont people like youth, energy, and speed around here? You think Larkin would have crushed this thinking by now. SMH

It's not black and white. The red wings aren't drafting all world talent every year, they're picking players with potential upsides because they didn't finish the season dead last in the standings.

Athanasiou or any individual player's NHl preparedness may be debated but the philosophy of sending later draft picks to the minors to develop is a sound practice with a proven track record of success.

#2629646 10/10 GDT : Red Wings 4 at Hurricanes 3

Have to miss this one because of a wedding, I'll take Wings 3-0. Larkin gets another one, Tatar gets the hatty this time (Are You Not Entertained?!).

That's some voodoo math right there :)

Anybody else having the least productive day at work ever?

My bar is already so low it's difficult to tell.

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)

Posted by Mckinley25 on 13 September 2015 - 06:37 PM

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.

#2624208 Curtis Glencross regrets taking hometown discount

Posted by Mckinley25 on 30 August 2015 - 09:58 PM

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.

#2622063 Who is the better player Zetterberg or Toews. Prime vs. Present

Posted by Mckinley25 on 01 August 2015 - 08:18 PM

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

That's MAN love, and it is good.
