#2567679 What should we do with the Monster?

Posted by Euro_Twins on 01 February 2015 - 01:43 PM

@petewallner: Jonas Gustavsson said he will play w Griffins Wednesday in Toronto and then, likely, catch plane to join #Wings in Colorado. #Gogrg


I hope he doesn't pull his groin trying to catch that plane.

As a Swede I'm sad to say that you're definitely wrong. We have a lot of young talent but overall the SHL has nothing on the KHL. All the best players from the SHL that can't make it in the NHL go to the KHL these days. The Swedish league was a lot better just 5years ago before the KHL started draining us of good players.


In Soviet Russia player drain you!

When this thread was created I didn't think it could get more ridiculous than it was to begin with.... Boy, was I wrong :P

I guess we define paying off differently.

You sound like a spoiled child who didn't get all 23 toys they wanted for one birthday. so youre suggesting we throw a fit and smash all our other stuff and keep whining till we lose the 6 cool shiny new toys we got, and get grounded to our room indefinitely...

Maybe they can stream a movie about it. And, I'm no clown, or juggler (or juggalo, for that matter).

#2572920 Nashville Predators to Host Alumni Game vs. Detroit Red Wings

Posted by puckloo39 on 21 February 2015 - 07:35 PM

So if you have tickets to the real game you get to stay and watch the alumni game? Is that how that works?

 

Yes, that's the way it works.  I am going, and we checked to make sure.

I took a look at the contract agreement for playing a game with the alumni, and this is one of the stipulations  :D :

 

• The Opponent agrees to provide the DRWA with a post game meal immediately following the game (DRWA players not obligated to attend). In addition, pre-game and during game refreshments with ice shall be provided by supplying 2 cases of assorted soft drinks, 2 cases of water and 3 cases of beer.

#2572601 TSN: Winnipeg, Toronto and Edmonton top NTC lists

Good lord. When will it end?

 

I go to Montreal at least once a year for business and/or pleasure. I somehow manage to get fat, drunk, sometimes enlightened, and always highly entertained. My french is about as good as Archie Bunker's.

Archie Bunker speaks French?

 

On a serious note...Went to Montreal back in 2003 for the F1 race; had a wonderful time - the people there were very friendly, beautiful city, neat shops/restaurants...No worries if you do not speak French, or if your French is 'rusty'.

 

EDIT - this reminds me.....I need to start a thread this spring - all in French for the Habs playoff run.

Maybe this finally gets the media to rethink their behaviour. It's no wonder that player don't want to play under that constant microscope or in a city where they can't order anything I'd they don't speak French. Winnipeg is a but surprising to me small town with a family feeling and an almost packed ring every time. Also some of the comments are disgusting and these fans are wondering why nobody wants to play there..lol

Maybe treating the players with class and having respect for their privacy would be a nice start? I mean if both teams were equally bad I'd still rather play for a team like the Ducks - coming from someone who lives as cold as possible winners! - with no media instead of the 24/7 going shows Toronto and Montreal..who wouldn't.

#2571659 Official 2015 NHL Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by kipwinger on 18 February 2015 - 09:36 AM

Here's Wisniewski's actual quote regarding the Wings...

 

"For me, knowing Detroit's history they don't really pay the market value for a defenseman or any player,'' Wisniewski said on NHL Live. "So I didn't think that was going to be a fit for myself."

 

 

So, two points about that.  A) It's true, B) He's not exactly trashing them.  It's a pretty straightforward way for a guy to explain why he's not interested in a place.  He could have been like all these other pro-athletes (Max Scherzer) who insist it's not about the money, and that they're happy where they are, and then leave for more money. 

 

Whether you want Wisniewski or not, and I can legitimately see why some wouldn't (even though I do), I doubt there's much "bad blood" over these comments. 

 

Edit:  Red Wings reportedly scouting the Blue Jackets - Flyers game, and the Stars - Blues.  A few weeks ago I talked about some "sleeper" options for the Wings to upgrade their defense.  Wiz, Savard, and Dallas' Klingberg were on that list.  During that time Savard and Klingberg have really produced well.  Hopefully, I'll get lucky and we'll acquire one of these guys.  Partly because I want a better blueline, and partly because I want to lord it over all you suckers.

No, I'm not against Yandle as a player at all... Point out one time when I said I don't like Yandle as a player... I've never said it

 

I win!

Right, she's hot, but she's super high maintenance and kind of thinks she's better than everyone, but deep down there's good in her, she's just complex.


America doesn't have a girlfriend. We only know Freedom.
