Letter re: the Wings that I found amusing

Spoiled Wings

<p>I just watched the Oct. 30 Red Wings-Predators game and I hope Detroit fans realize what their team is-spoiled thugs who resort to goonery when their hats are handed to them by the once-lowly Preds.
<p>Throwing tantrums and resorting to cheap shots isn't a of champions, but of an old, worn-out club refusing to accept its own reality.
<p>What a sad commentary on a formerly mighty hockey team.

signed, a guy who lives in Colorado



Now the humorous part for me was the fact that the Red Wings are "thugs who resort to goonery." Wonder what Arankys would have to say to that guy. I thought lack of toughness was our calling card.

Well, hating the Wings here in Av country is a right, not a privilege. But I think this guy's reaching a bit. I thought seeing these two teams throw down was great entertainment. Both were equally "guilty" of bumping uglies.

That being said, fire away. I'll duck now... :p

Well I pretty much agree with that, I think both teams were involved in some shenanigans, it's just weird to see the Wings refered to as a team that employs goonish tactics.

That letter was actually published in the "Letter to the Editor" section of last weeks edition of The Hockey News. It really is amazing that someone who lives in Colorado would write something like that! Does anyone know where Claude Lemieux lives now? Colorado possiblly?

I think that was on the pay-per-view channels after the game.

Yes I know that, I got it from the issue. I failed to mention where it came from on purpose.

As a mod I'm supposed to try to follow the rules extra closely but I really wanted to post this, you see. I am relaxed, you asked me why I didn't specify where it came from and I answered.

Just giving you a hard time Slava. Maybe I can come over to your house and we can play PS2 and eat PB & J sandwiches.
