#2633325 Mike Green out 2-3 weeks

Posted by WingsallTheway on 26 October 2015 - 05:11 PM

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

Posted by WingsallTheway on 15 October 2015 - 04:13 PM

 

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

Posted by WingsallTheway on 15 October 2015 - 02:08 PM

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




#2628651 All Purpose "Ovechkin is Awesome" Thread

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.




#2606493 All Purpose Grand Rapids Griffins Thread

Posted by WingsallTheway on 07 May 2015 - 08:32 AM

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




#2602719 Tampa Bay Head Coach Jon Cooper Accuses Red Wings Of Cheating

Posted by WingsallTheway on 28 April 2015 - 12:46 PM

 

So you watch every single game.

 

haha thats such a near-sighted argument.

 

No, but I do watch each of the 82 games the wings play, and that includes 29 other teams. I also watch hockey every night and these things do get noticed...

 

I guess we should disregard everything Bob Mckenzie says since he "doesnt watch every single game"




#2601591 Tampa Bay Head Coach Jon Cooper Accuses Red Wings Of Cheating

Posted by WingsallTheway on 27 April 2015 - 04:16 PM

Zetterberg and Nyquist are the best in the league at holding the stick then diving to get a hooking/holding penalty. fact.

 

Multiple teams have complained about us cheating on faceoffs and we've even had players admit it. (Draper, i believe?)

 

We interfere with players on the rush more then anyone in the league. I've noticed recently that other teams are starting to do it more and more as well. (side note, ive also noticed other teams using the same entry into the zone on the PP as us; the one where we drop it to Dats)

 

Now I wouldn't say were flat out CHEATING, were just milking the rules to our advantage as much as possible. Its a double edged sword as we saw in the first 5 games with all the penalties.

 

Lets not be biased here, if you don't see these things happening all game your watching with a blind eye. We have experienced vets on our team and these skills have been passed down. Any sport I've ever played, I've bent the rules as much as possible to gain an advantage. Its a skill.




#2596911 Smith in. Marchenko out for Game 3

Posted by WingsallTheway on 20 April 2015 - 05:24 PM

From St.James :

It's from St.James, but doesn't sound like Smith has attitude problems. That's good, I hope he has a huge game tomorrow.

 

He doesn't have attitude problems, he just has monkeys riding tricycles in circles in his head




#2596834 Oilers win the Draft Lottery

Posted by WingsallTheway on 20 April 2015 - 12:14 PM

I think it would be really smart for TOR to draft Strome. Hes a good player and obviously pals with McDavid... I can see in 4-5 years Connor jumping ship to go play there.
