#2004094 Sounds like the wings are looking for size

Posted by uk_redwing on 24 June 2010 - 02:38 PM

Who exactly is this kinda player then? You have to take risks. It's the draft for God's sake. Draft only "zero risk" physically ready guys every year and I bet you won't be a winning organization anyomore. You have to compare the risk and the reward. A guy like Tarasenko actually has huge potential even though there are some risks. Don't tell me you would really draft McIlrath over him as well?

This is starting to make me feel sick.


What are you seriously on about? No one mentioning drafting "zero risk tough guys." We're just talking about getting some bigger bodies in our team.

You need some chill pills...and some nausea pills.


#2003969 Nill says the Wings could trade up

There, happy?


Seems a small group of posters (or one guy with multiple accounts) has been repeatadly negging all of my posts. Impressive, no? He/they have negged me about 50/60 times in the last 24 hours.

Im just a little peeved off <_<

REALLY MODS? REALLY?!?

This thread can go on and on like this, but I start a thread asking why threads like this keep going and why everyone on here is so pissy lately, in a light hearted manner and it gets deleted?

makes sense.......... :huh:


They don't care. They seem happy to let the standards of this forum drag further and further down.


#2002393 What's with all the negativity around here lately?

Posted by uk_redwing on 22 June 2010 - 10:14 AM

Possibly people are just fed up with this once great forum being saturated with s***e/people so clueless they're borderline trolls.

Trying to find a decent post on here can be like finding a needle in a hay stack sometimes.


#2002326 Holland Looking to sign an Enforcer

Posted by uk_redwing on 22 June 2010 - 08:16 AM

And by the sounds of it, a heavyweight one at that:

Red Wings GM Ken Holland gave the Detroit News's Chris McCosky a roster update, and in doing so, he revealed that his one personnel goal during free agency involves adding someone who can drop the gloves when necessary:

"You'd like to bring in a Brad May or an Aaron Downey-type player, but if it's not there, it's not there," Holland said. "If we can't fit it in, we would go without it. It's just impossible to address every single need in a cap world."

If the Wings can't find a fourth-liner with bite, however, Holland suggests that the Wings have enough toughness to get the job done without a dedicated enforcer:

"We have some size on the back end, as well," Holland said. "We'd like an enforcer type, yes, but it has to be the right fit. We'll watch what moves are made over the next couple of months and see what shakes out."


Link Studies


I think this is more Mike Babcocks doing than Hollands, but its all good anyway! :clap:


#2001851 Griffins 2010/11 Roster

Posted by uk_redwing on 20 June 2010 - 08:47 PM

You're all lucky bastards. I'll be watching on AHL lives next season as me and Drumnj will stream every game live like last season.

Even those that dont go to the games, you still get to watch for free whilst my wallet gets a pounding! :ph34r:

Our team is basically set in stone. We're the losing 2009-2010 Red Wings with the addition of Hudler.


No we're not. There will be no Maltby. No Williams. No Lilja. No Lebda. Probably no Meech. There's going to be at least one and probably two more additions to the roster.


#2001269 Bettman says solving hits to the head will take time

Posted by uk_redwing on 18 June 2010 - 07:17 PM

Do a ****? Excuse my British ignorance, is a **** a ****** or just an idiotic person? I can do a ******, but I'm not a big find of doing an idiotic person unless she is really blonde and has a nice set of fun bags.


**** = You

Do one = f*** off

Sorted.

****? Really? lol


Yes. Really. Now do one.


#2001249 Bettman says solving hits to the head will take time

Posted by uk_redwing on 18 June 2010 - 06:50 PM

The only problem with that (although i do completely agree) is there will be even more diving. A player gets hit to the head, goes down, then goes Ribero on the ice to draw the extra minutes.


If I didn't know your normal comments you make, someone would read this comment and assume you enjoy when people go after Kronwall after a clean hit because he "touched on of their players" and now it's time to get his face mashed.


f*** me. You know full well Im talking about cheapshots yet you go ahead and be a complete **** anyway like im going on about normal physical contact?

Not sure how much longer I can cope with this site.


#2001239 Bettman says solving hits to the head will take time

Posted by uk_redwing on 18 June 2010 - 06:01 PM

If the players have respect for each others so that removing the instigator wouldn't lead to more stupid things happening, then why are they hitting each other in the heads in the first place? If they're hitting themselves to the head right now, I could see them as well just starting to fight someone even if the other guy wouldn't want to do it.


What? Removing the instigator isn't about "respect" its about "touch one of our guys and your gonna have your head punched into the ice."

Also, the last part of that made zero sense.


#2000666 Holland thinking of re-signing Kirk Maltby

Posted by uk_redwing on 17 June 2010 - 10:49 AM

Holland also is contemplating re-signing veteran Kirk Maltby.

One guy we have to make a decision on is Kirk Maltby, Holland said. I like Maltby. Hes been a warrior. I think hes got some hockey left in him.

Just what we need. <_< Seriously Kenny, enough with the God damn sentiments already!


#2000218 Wings sign Ilari Filppula 1yr/$500k

Posted by uk_redwing on 16 June 2010 - 02:26 PM

Fixed.


Not sure why I got minus-3 for that. He has a two-way contract, has never played North American hockey before and has agreed to play in Grand Rapids if need be. Don't get angry at me that that's where he'll spend his FIRST season in North America. Not my fault :rolleyes:

Good signing for Grand Rapids at any rate.
