In Topic: gritty players I would like the wings to sign

24 May 2011 - 05:24 PM

Zenon Konopka.

Gritty, tough, fights... annnnnd wins Face-offs. There, see? Not totally useless. Sign him up, Kenny!

Otherwise...? Is Arron Asham a FA this year? Yes? Well, there ya' go. No off-season discussion would be complete without his name in the cards, amirite?

Great news.

Now we can re-sign Lilja. :)

In Topic: Your preferred era of play/officiating?

07 February 2011 - 03:47 AM

The 80's.

For whatever reason, the clutching and grabbing wasn't (or didn't seem) as blatantly obvious as it became during the 1995-2004 era. You didn't seem to have a bunch of guys who would just latch their sticks onto another player, and literally be ferried down the ice (which, as we know, was a huge problem during the Dead Puck era).

Maybe I'm biased (I do love 80's hockey, for a number of reasons), but I thought the officiating seemed more balanced then than it does now. You had clutching, hooking, and all that jazz... but it wasn't as over the top as the late 90's/early 00's was, nor was it as overly strict as the game has become post-lockout.

In Topic: Versus fires 29 people

All the more reason to me to continue syncing the Wings radio feed whenever they play on Versus.

Pierre McGuire? Oh man... it's like bad just completely bypassed worse, and went straight to unbridled crap. Don't we get enough of that guy already?

Hah! Don't make me laugh.

Sorry, but big does not = tough. At no point, other than the occasional rare fight, have I seen Ericsson display a true mean streak. I'd say he's about as intimidating as Eric Daze.
