For those so quick to point out just how deeply at fault the big, bad Wings are…you do realize the ramifications of these suspensions right?
You do understand that, due to injuries to Johan Franzen and Brad Stuart, the Wings will ice 18 players tomorrow night instead of 20?
Due to the Cap that Gary created, and the suspension that he levied because two respected players got injured and decided to skip his corporate kiss-ass fest? Detroit will play a regular season game that actually means something in the standings with an incomplete roster.
And all of this points right back to who?
To The Crosby Baby’s Daddy, that’s who.
And let’s be real clear about something else here too. For all those fans saying the Wings got what they deserved?
Well you can kiss our ass too. Tell me how the league’s two classiest players, who happen to play for the premiere organ-I-zation, the franchise that actually does it right, getting railroaded because of an agenda the worst commissioner in professional sports has against the Wings…tell me how that is a positive.
So, the Wings take to visiting ice in Columbus tomorrow rolling three forward lines, essentially.
And if someone gets hurt due to that Gary? How’s that gonna work for you, eh idiot?
Here’s what’s been suggested and it’s not a bad idea.
Forfeit the frigging game. Forfeit it because it’s unnecessarily unsafe. This isn’t a case of two forwards getting hurt in the midst of a game. It’s a situation where the league knowingly placed ten other skaters at jeopardy by keeping two players out of the lineup without any possibility of replacement. Intent to injure. Hell. The Wings could legitimately sue the league.
Or how about this. This was suggested too. Dress Lidstrom. Dress Datsyuk. Or call up Leino and Haydar or Home Keys or Kindl. Call ‘em up, dress ‘em and skate them tomorrow night. Even if it takes us over Gary’s Cap.
In other words, tell Gary, the Wing haters, the elitist Canadien media to take this suspension and shove it right up their asses…if it’s not too much trouble.
And if whatever the Wings decide to do cost them two points, or a few million in fines, or their repuation in the eyes of the hypocritical league office? Too bad.
Oh, and to the the players who stood by Bettman’s side publicly? Like you Sid, ya little princess? You just wish you played for a GM with the balls to do what Kenny Holland did. And you wonder why Marian Hossa’s a Red Wing? Cry over that.
So, bottom line? Screw it. All you did Gary was piss off a bear who’d been sleeping the first three months of the season.
Exactly what we needed bitch. Thanks in advance.
