#2022279 Mike Modano signs with Detroit

Posted by Bannedforlife on 04 August 2010 - 05:02 AM

This sums it up pretty well, I think -- although "Fedo-traitor" is a little harsh. He stands out from the other Wings greats in a key respect: He's Russian, and developed under the old Soviet system. He had to commit a small degree of cultural suicide to play in the NHL, and the adjustment could not have been easy. (I know, I know, all of us would happily make such an adjustment for the million$ he was earning, but I've always been willing to give the oft-enigmatic Feds some slack for this reason.)

Fedorov is my all time favorite hockey player. Watching him play was absolutely electrifying. I would have loved to see him go head to head against Ovechkin both in their primes. As much as I wish things had turned out differently, I can't help feeling nothing but gratitude for the years that he gave us. I would certainly consider retiring his number before Datsyuk or Zetterberg.


#2020986 If I had a million dollars...

Posted by Bannedforlife on 31 July 2010 - 03:59 AM

I'd buy the Pittsburgh Penguins and make Sidney Crosby wear a dress as his uniform. Nobody else, just you Sidney. You don't like it? Screw. Go play in the KHL.

And that's just the beginning. After that, I'd go out and buy all the pants in the world, every single pair of pants, and just burn them. f*** everybody, no more pants. Start over with making pants, they're all gone.

Then, if I had any money leftover, I would open a chain of pet food stores all over the country and it would be called s***asspetf***ers, that would be the name of it. It would be like Walmart, with a huge yellow sign, "s***asspetf***ers". People working in there would be rude to you, you walk in and they're like "Get the f*** outta here, ya idiot". They won't even let you come in. And if you get past that, dog food costs a million dollars for one can. That's the price, f*** you, you don't like it? Get the f*** outta here, it's s***asspetf***ers. And also, if you come in, we'll f*** your pet. That's the rule. You don't even have to bring it, we'll find it and f*** it. That's the way its gonna be. Nobody will ever spend a dime at s***asspetf***ers, but I will keep it open for years and decades, and we'll never close. Keep expanding like we're doing great. Open a new one every day next to another one. We'll surround every Starbucks with five s***asspetf***ers all facing each other. And you know why I'd do it? Just to enjoy people going, "What the f***? Why doesn't it close? Jesus! That place sucks man! That is the worst pet store. I'm not paying a million dollars for a can of dog food! That's clearly overpriced. And they f*** your pet? That's not appropriate to f*** people's pets, come on! But they've been open for fifty years now. Damn those s***asspetf***er people!"

He's a defensemen...

Well... I didn't know that.


#2020480 Grebeshkov to the KHL

The guy had 84 point in 227 career games and he thinks hes worth more than 3 mil? :blink:


#2018148 Hawks trade Reasoner to Panthers for Jeff Taffe

Posted by Bannedforlife on 22 July 2010 - 04:40 PM

Why is that funny? The wings struggled to finish off the Coyotes and then got creamed by San Jose, and they have done exactly what with their roster that is going to put them over the top?

I was laughing at your attempt to divert attention from your teams pathetic management by taking a (failed) shot at the Wings. However, since you asked...

The Red Wings will start next season with mostly the same team as last year. You know, the one that finished with the best record in the league after the Olympic break (once we got all of our injured players back). Except this year we have the addition of Hudler, the possible additions of Modano and a s*** kicking 6th D-man, the additions-by-subtraction of Williams and Lebda, and the potential progress from young players such as Howard, Ericsson, Helm, and Abdelkader. With or without Modano, Detroit will be going into next year with sick depth, much needed R&R, and (hopefully) freedom from the injury bug. We finished last season 5th in the west, I can't see us finishing outside the top 3 this year.

So like I said, LOL

If it weren't for Chicago and Kovy, this would be the most boring offseason ever.


#2017932 Wings should sign Paul Kariya

Posted by Bannedforlife on 22 July 2010 - 02:51 AM

He made 6 million last year. I doubt he's going to want to come here for what we have available to offer him.


#2014670 RUMOR: Wings Offer 1-year Contract to Maltby

Posted by Bannedforlife on 13 July 2010 - 08:15 PM

I think it's funny that they offered him a contract and he didn't immediately jump all over it. I wonder if San Jose and Minnesota will be making him an offer as well...


#2012619 Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

Posted by Bannedforlife on 08 July 2010 - 01:00 PM

It would be something to see Lebda paired with Jeff Finger.

I wouldn't mind seeing some hot Finger-Lebda action...


#2010438 Getflaf for Zetter

Posted by Bannedforlife on 05 July 2010 - 02:16 PM

The thing that gets to me is when 90% of the board complains about the team not being big/strong/tough enough, but when someone poses a hypothetical trade for one of the premier power forwards in the league, the same people lambaste him with a whopping 34 negs. Really?

Here's the bottom line. Zetterberg is great. Getzlaf is great. If you want a team that can physically intimidate the opposition, you build it around Getzlaf. If that's not important to you, you pick Zetterberg. It's that simple.


#2008887 TSN: Discussion of Modano To Wings

Posted by Bannedforlife on 01 July 2010 - 09:32 PM

Not what the Wings need, but I certainly wouldn't complain about it. I'd rather see Modano signed than Maltby.

This is so right on.


#2004018 Cuts Continue for Hawks - Fraser Sent to Edmonton

Posted by Bannedforlife on 24 June 2010 - 12:39 PM

Stan Bowman has come out and said since yesterday that his back is no longer against the wall. If Niemi and Hjalmarsson are signed for 3 mil or less, the hawks might have to part with only one more player. It wont be Sharp, it wont be Bolland. It would most likely be Versteeg, or for that matter Reasoner. There is also some speculation that Kane did not hit all his bonuses. No one knows yet.

:lol: What is supposed to come out and say? "Despite the fact that yesterday we traded a key contributor to our first Stanley Cup in half a century, our cap situation is still completely f***ed. Please, someone come save us before the league is forced to step in and clean up our mess for us."


#2003981 Savard to waive no trade clause

Posted by Bannedforlife on 24 June 2010 - 11:48 AM

I know its stupid to even think about because it can't happen, but if we were able to get him without giving up Hudler, Filppula or Cleary, we would be able to roll the 3 best scoring lines in the league. (We would also have to make Draper go away in this little fantasy...)

Posted by Bannedforlife on 22 June 2010 - 04:54 PM

Awesome! Now we can sign Maltby to a slight raise and just enjoy the rest of the summer! :ph34r:


#2002640 Do Wings fans want another Yzerman?

Posted by Bannedforlife on 22 June 2010 - 02:11 PM

I'd rather we find another Lidstrom than another Yzerman...
