Go home, Holland. You're drunk.



Holland said he's still trying to sign Cleary but Brunner is moving on.


#2425568 Red Wings No Longer "Presented by Amway!"

The posts on this thread make me wonder about our education system. Cleary economics isn't being taught in school anymore. 



Complain about people not being educated, spells "clearly" wrong.


No, no, no. He was referring to the 'Dan Cleary Economics' not being taught in school nowadays. It's the theory that some consumers like Ken Holland will scour the market for new and fresher products only to end up at the checkout stands with same ol' reliable off-brand that he's bought for years. It's good for the local economic cap but bad for the Unrestricted marketable products. 



#2425372 Report: Red Wings out on Lecavalier - signs with Philly 5@4.5 per

Posted by FireCaptain on 03 July 2013 - 11:32 AM

I think so of you folks are missing the point. I don't think the DOLLARS were the issue, it was the TERM. 


It's a shame they couldn't have talked him into 2 or 3 years and then explain to him that the Wings have a history of allowing/encouraging 1 year re-ups after that.

Yeah, but then 2 of the side entrances would be cockeyed.


Sam Bernstein arena, that would make Mickey pretty happy lol

Maltby scored 50 goals in Juniors! © ®


He's a Maltby!

Look at it this way. Many-not all, scouts think he can play harder and show more effort. But he did score 50 goals this year. So if there is more room for improvement, what can he become? 50 goals in the NHL? Yes. he does have that type of talent.

Nope, not just you.

My friend from Saskatoon clued me in to that one.

Does anyone else giggle when they say "Regina?" Just me?

Good bye Lauren, please take Mickey York with you.



#2421117 NHL considering ban on spin-o-rama in shootout..

Posted by FireCaptain on 20 June 2013 - 09:30 PM

A. No way Bettman could balance 5 plates, and
B. He would drop plates on purpose in order to influence who wins.

Just sayin'.


Nah, he'd relocate 3 of the plates to 'better markets' and then be forced to have the NHL own the other 2 while searching for a 'suitable buyer'. 

#2421009 Ilitch reveals plan for new $450m, 18,000-seat Red Wings arena

Posted by FireCaptain on 20 June 2013 - 11:19 AM

Little Caesers Coliseum!


At least then, the Illitch's are just transferring money from one pocket to another. ;)


Whatever it ends up being, I don't want to see Amway Place © or Amway Arena © or anything with the word AMWAY in it.


Sorry to any independent business owners that are forum contributors, it's just that your parent company has a terrible reputation. 

They don't call it SCAMway for nothing.

#2420975 Ilitch reveals plan for new $450m, 18,000-seat Red Wings arena

Posted by FireCaptain on 20 June 2013 - 12:39 AM

I was in that article, that's why I said I didn't like the idea of the reduce seating numbers.


I'm pretty sure I read 18k somewhere.. I'll try to find a link

The field's also bigger with more players (and therefore more action) and a football is magnitudes larger than a puck.


Go home comparison, you're drunk.


Why are people worried about being further away from the ice? There isn't a bad seat at JLA, even at the very top. I've sat in dozens of spots there, from the 5th row from the ice to the absolute last row in the building. All sight lines are perfect. If you're worried about being too far from the action, how do you explain a football stadium? 




That's far higher up than any hockey arena.
