I wasn't going to say anything, but just one thing...

I don't see any of the mods forcing people to be here. I don't see the mods forcing people to buy subscriptions.

If you don't like it, leave. It's really that simple. That goes for everyone.

And I don't think the issue here is necessarily threads going off topic. Every thread goes off topic--many of the hockey player threads have and no moderator has said anything.

It's the content of the posts that is the problem.

I could go on, but it would only make things uglier and I've had enough of that already.

(Regretted posting anything, tried to delete it but it won't let me. Many apologies Ducks-Wings fans.)

you know what is funny, I left this site for about 3 months, and came back because somebody actually asked me to, coaxed me back and invited me to re-join the site. even said i was missed!!! haha, what a joke, eh? some of you would be surprised probably if I told you who it was that did this, but that's another time, another place...

AvsGirl, you are probably a very nice person. I am sorry I offended you. you really dont know much of what is going on here, probably never will, other than what some people might tell you when I am gone. Good luck to your Avs, I predict another Cup for them, if so hopefully not against NJ cause I dont want to go thru that nightmare again. I took a shot at your boy Patrick Roy, who I used to idolize at one point, alas humans are mere mortals... and the truth can be hard to swallow, it's kind of like when I watch the NJ Nets play now, knowing what Jason Kidd did (regardless of how sorry he may be now, no matter how sincere he is), I have to find a way to excuse it or I can't stomach watching him...

yesss!!!! the wed wings just lost in OT! that's not supposed to happen, it's just not right!

chizip and cujoe, you dont know your hockey, but you know comedy

foray and deathbear in da house!

California and its inhabitants are not "fucking Southerners." Last time I checked - California was part of the "north" during the civil war (despite not really being a state). And the mason-dixon line never went further than the mississippi (if that far).

not cool.

I'm sure you know how to look it up yourself. Don't bother though, according to manda my sarcasm was taken as a threat, something I know such a scab as yourself is completely unaffected by.

Premature playoff exit would crush Red Wings

Economist: Team, city could lose $60 million


By Ted Kulfan / The Detroit News


ANAHEIM, Calif. -- A first-round playoff loss would be a financial disaster to the Red Wings and could hurt the team in its quest to retain and sign free agents.

If the Wings' playoff run ends in California, with no further home games in Detroit, the loss to the team and its hometown will be $60 million, David Littman, Comerica Bank's chief economist, predicted Tuesday.

"With the elevated ticket prices for playoff games," Littman said, "and the enthusiasm of the fans and their willingness to spend in anticipation of victory, each home playoff game is worth about $4 million to the team. A victory parade brings another $16 million to the city.

"Last year, the Wings had 13 home playoff games (most in the NHL). So far this time, they've had two. If they lose now, it's over -- playoff revenue is truncated at $8 million instead of going the full shot to the Stanley Cup and making $68 million."

Jimmy Devellano, senior vice president of the Wings, wouldn't comment on how an economic fallout would affect the team's operation.

"It's premature," Devellano said. "We haven't lost yet. I was part of a team (1975 New York Islanders) that won four consecutive games. Our season isn't done yet."

Before the season, though, Devellano said a long playoff run is important financially to the team.

"Right now, our salaries are just under $70 million, second-highest in hockey, behind only the Rangers," Devellano said before the season. "But if we're a successful playoffs team, we can handle it."

The question is whether owner Mike Ilitch would be willing to accept a loss and keep the payroll high for next season.

The financial situation could jeopardize the future of a number of Wings players, including:

* Star center Sergei Fedorov. He will be an unrestricted free agent at season's end. He has already turned down the Wings' offer of a five-year. $50 million contract. If the Wings lose the Anaheim series, they will not go any higher. Fedorov, who reportedly is seeking $12 million a year, might have to decide between taking less money to stay in Detroit or going to a big-spending team such as the Rangers.

* Forward Darren McCarty. The fan favorite is also an unrestricted free agent and will be seeking a salary in the $2 million to $3 million per-year range. He is one of the few physical players on the team, but with his age (31) and lack of offensive output, the Wings might not be willing to meet his price.

* Center Igor Larionov. He is a locker-room leader and an inspiration to the team's other players. But at $1.5 million per year for a 42-year-old player, the Wings might decide he is a luxury they can't afford.

* Forward Luc Robitaille. After a subpar regular season in which he was benched on one occasion, the Wings won't bring him back.

* Defenseman Jason Woolley. He has been a good find, adding depth on the blue line. But at $1.3 million for Woolley, the Wings could decide to trim costs and go younger at the position, possibly 2000 first-round draft pick Niklas Kronvall.

* Captain Steve Yzerman. After a remarkable recovery from knee surgery, Yzerman has said he wants to play one more year. He probably would want the $8 million he received this season.

A quick ouster also might prevent the Wings from being very active in the free-agent market. Two years ago, the team signed Brett Hull and Robitaille and acquired a high-priced Dominik Hasek. This past season, the big free-agent catch was goalie Curtis Joseph.

This year, the Wings might be on the sideline when players such as Teemu Selanne, Joe Niewendyk and Derian Hatcher are available.

The Wings, whose ticket prices range from $22-$85 in the regular season, also might have to raise ticket prices again.

Put a horn in it,
and while you're at it zooropamanda can have one too.

We alll know,
I've got two.

You're implying you're going away again,
long trip?
stay in the dungeon?
or are you just like me?

A diamond in the rough,
red in a sea of blue,
lost in a world of broken lines.
Your purpose so nobel,
your stand so righteous.
You're so tough,
living in a time long since passed.

I'm just passing through,
on my way home.

Zooropa.
