#2634868 Luke Glendening: Shutdown Extraordinaire.

I'm the father of the Red Wings "GM" ? I feel proud.





#2634742 5 Game Homestand

I actually think 4-1 with the lone loss coming to Toronto. We play as good as the team against us is in the standings. I'm sure there will be an OT win mixed in there

#2634700 Looks like Tyler Bertuzzi is a ****** like his uncle

Posted by WingsallTheway on 02 November 2015 - 09:43 AM

Actually you can. 


Jamie Benn (who fit into this clown category) is leading in points and goals in the league and his team is currently ranked 1 in the western conference. 


Shea Weber's team's not doing too bad either. 


I don't think we can ever compare Tyler Bertuzzi to Shea Weber and Jamie Benn....

...but where does he go?


I mean, really?  Who wants his 5.292 cap hit?



#2633325 Mike Green out 2-3 weeks

Who do we blame this on


Cleary. Hate that guy.

#2632460 Janmark nylen makes the Dallas roster

Posted by WingsallTheway on 23 October 2015 - 03:21 PM

At this point I'd take janmark over Richards.


Richards = Emmerton










Obviously not haha but yeah I've been totally unimpressed. His backcheck during a goal the other night was just horrific

#2631016 I think this might be finally it for the Mule, Sadly

Did you pay attention when Franzen said retirement was something he wasn't considering?


So because his symptoms are back and he's being placed on IR as a precaution, he's absolutely donzo? Please, he will sit until his symptoms are gone again, and then he will play. I remember when Crosby was going through this same thing.


People are acting like he got rocked with concussion #1000 or something lol that's not the case


I didn't say he was for sure done but it doesn't look good. Franzen has been very stubborn throughout this whole concussion ordeal. The thing with these head injuries is its totally on the person who's having  them to call the shots, theres no way of a doctor telling if he can or can't play because theres only "symptoms"


If he just sat out (8 months?) and comes back for 2 games and doesn't even get hit and hes facing symptoms again, what's going to happen when he actually gets hit in the fastest game in the world?


Pronger's and Savard's symptoms never went away and it doesn't seem like Mule's will either. These things just tend to get worse...  

#2630991 I think this might be finally it for the Mule, Sadly

Why is this it for him? He didn't sustain another concussion. I assume he'll be lacing them up as soon as his concussion symptoms are gone again. That could be sooner, rather than later. He's on regular IR.


Have you been paying attention to concussions for the past 10 years? 


He missed 1/3 of last season from symptoms (from a tap to the chin) and complained of symptoms all off season


Came back for 2 games (with seemingly minimal contact) and hes out again. It does NOT look good for mule.

#2629115 Cleary NOT reporting to Grand Rapids

Posted by WingsallTheway on 09 October 2015 - 03:17 PM

Not a fan of Cleary's decision here.


Holland gifted him 3 contracts and now its time for him to return the favor and he wont do it. Hope he leaves the org and never looks back

Literally 90% of OV's time on the ice is standing right there waiting for a pass


Teams still don't defend it lol

#2623115 Abdelkader entering contract year, possible $4M extension?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 13 August 2015 - 08:20 PM

While I agree, Abby would be getting money for his prime years. When Gus is at that level, he'll likely be around 6-7 mil.


It sounds like a lot right now, but its still taking awhile to get used to cap inflation. Just under 4M wouldnt be bad at all.

#2622914 Best American forward in the nhl?

Posted by WingsallTheway on 11 August 2015 - 06:34 PM

what about Pavelski? He put up 70 points this year, I was really shocked to see that


True enough but I'd still take the other 3 over him. I must say though i loathe the game Kessel plays.


I know the topic is best american forward, but best player for me is Suter. Top 2 D in the NHL IMO


To think that two of these players we are discussing nearly signed here...... still bugs me all the time haha

#2619544 Hoggan, Paetsch, and Grant resigned...

in before re-signed

#2613569 2015 Draft

Posted by WingsallTheway on 08 June 2015 - 09:08 PM

If any GM trades Mcdavid for anyone, they would be fired in 3 years.

Ugh, I don't know why I have such an aversion to guys sliding across the ice on their knees.  I mean, I realize it's an important game, and you just scored a hat trick, and that tons of guys have done way worse and all.  But I still get this overwhelming urge to throw a battery at his head when I see him do it. 


Really haha I think its one of the best cellys out there. Its emotion and character. Two things our team has been lacking for years


Only other guy who gives a hoot when he scores is Tatar
