Another vote for "neither".


In Topic: Sharks enter training camp with no C or A's

Obviously Mclellan is not happy with the leadership on his team.  I personally see nothing wrong with stripping the "leaders" of their letters in an attempt to motivate them and/or find others to replace them.  I feel a quality of a good coach is to try new methods to motivate his players if the current method is not working, which it certainly is not.  Good for him.  I am glad this is happening however, because I HATE the Sharks....


In Topic: Greatest Wings game ever

10 August 2014 - 02:32 PM

March 26, 1997.  The most exciting sporting event I've ever watched.  I can't imagine a game ever topping that one for me.  My wife got me the "Sweet Revenge" poster framed and signed by McCarty for me as a wedding present.


In Topic: Article on FAs and Red Wings

Last year I was very excited about being able to watch the Wings on HBO's 24/7.  I was looking forward to seeing who the goofy guys were, the serious guys, etc, etc.  I was extremely disappointed to see just how BORING today's Red Wings are.  I didn't see any personality from the team...with the exception of a couple. 

 

You just don't see things like Yzerman giving his teammate a kiss on the "Kisscam" or Shanny motioning to the lady about hairy armpits while he's in the box, or Ozzie talking about how ripped he is in the pre-game.  I enjoyed watching the Maple Leafs on 24/7 much more than the Wings...their guys had personality and it was entertaining.

 

The Red Wings of today are boring, and I have to believe that plays a factor in F/A decision as well.
