#2451544 Tootoo Waived

Posted by uk_redwing on 07 November 2013 - 09:55 AM

I realise waiving Samuelsson won't provide any cap relief...but does anyone really care so long as he's gone?

 

I'd rather take his cap hit and have an empty space and use an emergency recall when needed.




#2451470 Tootoo Waived

Tootoo being waived whilst Samuelsson and Cleary remain on this team is a travesty.

 

A travesty made in the office of one Ken Holland.

I see the NHL finally got my letter about me having to stay up late to watch games.

Cheers Gary.




#2441299 Steve Yzerman wants Game Misconduct penalties for fighting

Posted by uk_redwing on 03 October 2013 - 09:22 AM

If you take out fighting because it's dangerous soon you remove hitting, soon you make the puck lighter and soon you make the blades blunter and on it goes...Ice hockey is not a safe sport. It's played on ice for f***s sake. It'll never be safe. The topic of getting rid of fighting is boring and pointless. There are many far more dangerous aspects of the sport.

 

The players want it. Most of the fans want it. People who don't watch the sport and the media make a fuss because they're bored. f*** them all.




#2440619 Steve Yzerman wants Game Misconduct penalties for fighting

They are suspending guys for multiple games for a hit to a (helmeted) head, but it's only five minutes for repeatedly punching someone in the head.

 

That's because off balance punches are no where near as dangerous and forceful as full body checks to the head. The amount of force between each is vast. I'd rather take 10 punches than 1 body check to the head.

 

More people get injured from blocking shots than fighting. Ban the puck!




#2440470 Who will be LGW's whipping boy this season?

Posted by uk_redwing on 02 October 2013 - 10:12 AM

Ken Holland for signing the whipping boys and Babcock for choosing them over other players.

 

As far as players go, it has to be Cleary. Poor guy is on a decline in his career and will likely try and play through the injuries he's likely to get which will only hamper him. The guy's a warrior but he's in the wrong place at the wrong time.

 

That said if Cleary sucks I won't be mad at him. He didn't offer himself a contract.

Tried something different in a shootout in preseason.

 

Hang him.




#2438197 9/21 Pre-Season GDT : Boston Bruins at Red Wings, 7:00 EST

Bored without a stream.




#2437924 Gallant and Barch find a way around the new helmet rule

Posted by uk_redwing on 20 September 2013 - 10:44 AM

I know the NHL have done this because they think it will reduce headaches which is all they care about, but if players CHOOSE to take their helmet and visors off so they dont mess up their hands safe in the knowledge so few concussions happen in fights, what's the point in penalising them?

 

I'd rather fight without a helmet and be able to use my hands afterwards.




#2437565 9/19 Pre-Season GDT : Red Wings 8 at Bruins 2

Posted by uk_redwing on 19 September 2013 - 11:08 AM

What everybody's been hoping for???? 
 

Samuelsson not skating with this second group. Likely nursing an injury. Will have update after skate.

 

If Khan says he's injured there's a chance he might be traded :D ...we can hope can't we?

 

Be interesting to see who takes Franzen's place. I'd like to see Callahan because I'm biased and don't care what anyone else things.


Also, I hope Jamie Tardif suits up for the Bruins. Still love The Tardif. Been a while since I've seen him play.

 

:(




#2437470 Pulkkinen Scheduled for Hearing

Posted by uk_redwing on 18 September 2013 - 12:13 PM

A silly hit to make. Sort of thing you'd expect from an inexperienced player.

 

That said, I wouldn't have given it more than 2 minutes myself. It was pretty soft hit. Looked a lot worse than it was.




#2437210 Jensen out till December/January after fight with Tyler Bertuzzi

Posted by uk_redwing on 17 September 2013 - 03:46 PM

then after he got the reaction he wanted proceeded to injure him. 

 

:clap:

 

Good one.




#2437202 Jensen out till December/January after fight with Tyler Bertuzzi

Posted by uk_redwing on 17 September 2013 - 03:17 PM

Never like this pick, seemed like a poor move by Holland and co. Glad its paying dividends.

 

Glad to see you didn't actually watch what happened. Tyler did nothing wrong, just defended himself.




#2437159 Jensen out till December/January after fight with Tyler Bertuzzi

Posted by uk_redwing on 17 September 2013 - 11:15 AM

Glad someone posted the video of the scrap, because certain online "reporters" had been making out like bad little Bertuzzi and his bad fighting was the sole reason Jensen was injured!

 

Yes Malik. You.




#2437155 9/17 Pre-Season GDT : Red Wings 0 at Blackhawks 2

Apparently Mitch Callahan is starting on the 4th line tonight.

 

Gonna be a fun one ;)
