#2156354 Ruutu suspended for clean hit on Erat

Posted by Third Man In on 22 April 2011 - 11:42 AM

Should a player have his head down while skating through the neutral zone or receiving a suicide pass? No. Should a player be potentially subject to headaches, dizziness, fatigue, anxiety, memory and attention problems, sleep problems, and irritability for the rest of his life because he does? No way.

I don't think you can ever completely take concussions out of the game, but can the league significantly reduce them by identify and eliminating the types of hits, like this one, that cause the bulk of them? Absolutely. If that offends you because it "degrades physicality from the game," there's always UCF.

#2141003 Hmm something I noticed

Posted by Carman on 02 April 2011 - 07:18 PM

Fighting has it's place. But there are too many staged fights and too many one dimensional worthless players.

If I'm a Nashville fans I'm pissed that S.o.b. fought Bertuzzi. That's why I don't want a player like that on my team. I think the risk outweighs the reward when it comes to fighting, so I'd rather the team not fight until the instigator rule is taken out.


#2140157 Core Pt.2

Posted by Doc Holliday on 02 April 2011 - 10:11 AM

Haha. The funny thing is, its a Canadian team too, soon they're blind, rabid support may end up sounding even more rediculous than Chicago's. It probably won't just be about being better than the Wings, but how they're better than America and all its teams.

I hate Canada's arrogance, especially in regards to hockey. I was watching CBC the other day and they claimed the Gretzky's C stood for cooperation, that cooperation was an inherintly Canadian value and was essentially invented by them. I hate how CBC's intro just shows clips from he Canadian teams. If you suppossed own the game, why don't you support all the teams?


How many Canadian teams do you see featured on NBC or the Winter Classic?

#2132034 Datsyuk, Rafalski Injury Update Thread

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 18 March 2011 - 01:41 PM

Remember when they actually used to say what the injury was? "Lower body injury" and other vague descriptions were only really used in the playoffs.

Nowadays it's practically like "Datsyuk injury? Who's Datsyuk? I don't know anyone by that name, and if I did I would have no information on his injury."


#2125935 Wings - Pens, 3/21/11

Posted by Rick Zombos Ghost on 04 March 2011 - 12:51 PM

I will be celebrating my birthday, March 21st, at the game. Pretty stoked that we play the Pens, at home, on it. Go Wings!

My question is, how many LGWer's will be attending also? Less importantly, yet to spark conversation that will make this thread worthwhile, what kind of game are you expecting?

Edit: someone please change the date to 2011. I knew putting the year on there was dumb...

Ill give you a dollar if you take Larry Murphy dollar hot dog sign and get on TV.


#2125335 Wings Playoff/Cup chances?

Posted by stinky fish taco on 03 March 2011 - 03:12 PM

If everyone thinks that the Wings will continue with this defensive play when literally every single team that is in the playoffs, including the Wings, tightens up defensively, then I believe everyone is more of a chicken little and delusional than I thought.

just like last year when the wings GA/G went up from 2.50 to 2.75, right?

...oh wait.


#2122972 Teams' third jerseys

Posted by GSBrooks13 on 27 February 2011 - 03:05 AM

Sorry, you guys will definitely think this is a stupid question.. but what exactly is a third jersey?


A third jersey is basically an alternate jersey that some teams will use. Every team has a home and away jersey that they use ona regular basis, but basically in an attempt to make a few extra dollars a lot of teams have a 3rd or alternate jersey that they wear every few game, generally just features different colors and/or a different logo than the team usually wears.


#2120918 JLA Seating question

Posted by stevkrause on 23 February 2011 - 11:48 AM

Awesome fan spirit there!<_<

I understand that the building is not what it used to be .. but damn.... to never go to a game because of it!!

you're going to question my fandom based off of that?!?!? I take an annual trip to GR to watch the Griffins at Van Andel (side note - it's pretty sad when your AHL arena BLOWS AWAY your NHL arena), I watch every single game, stream SEL and SM-Liga games to watch our other prospects online, and have been to over 100 games at the Joe... my point is, I am not going to pay money to support a venue that I think needs to go away anymore, the live game experience is not JUST the product on the ice, but the environment too and the Joe is a hole these days... I am simply not going to accept "bare minimum" anymore for my entertainment dollar, when I can watch the game in HD on my 52 inch LCD in my cushy chair, with my bottled micro-brew beer and my bathroom 20 feet away, without dealing with the crowd OR the traffic, just to go to a s*** arena...


#2118561 Eric Brewer to Tampa Bay

Posted by Konnan511 on 18 February 2011 - 04:40 PM

Probably one of the biggest busts/disappointments in recent memory. Glad he found a new home, Hedman could use his veteran guidance.

yzerman is showing kenny how its done.


And Holland showed Yzerman how it's done last night.


#2113074 Forsberg Joins Avalanche

Posted by dat's sick on 08 February 2011 - 02:39 PM

Dude has been washed up for years and is making one last cash / glory grab.

Washed up? Dude has been dominating everytime he's set his f***ed up feet on the ice in the SEL the last couple of years. Last time he was in the NHL he almost singlehandedly got the Avs into the playoffs and was a big part of them getting to the 2nd round. In the Olympics 2010 he was one of very few bright spots in the game where Sweden was eliminated against Slovakia.

Cash grab? He's been playing for FREE for Modo in the SEL. And by FREE, I mean as in getting payed NO MONEY. Not only a little bit of money. NO. MONEY. Now he has signed af****** 1 million dollar contract. Guess what, I'm sure he'd play for zero dollars if it was allowed. If this was about money he probably would have saved himself about 10 operations on his foot and just signed for a KHL team or something.

He is doing this for himself. Because he loves to play hockey. And maybe a little bit to prove to people like you that he ISN'T washed up and that he still has hockey in him.

#2105068 Enforcer Poll

Posted by Finnish Wing on 25 January 2011 - 07:17 PM

I support the players you listed, and I also support big goons who have no talent other than intimidating people and punching them in their faces. And no I don't care that those players don't skate well or score points.

Just being completely honest with my feelings on this.

I gave you a +1 for being honest.
