AtlantaHotWings reacted to kipwinger in 1/26/23 GDT Wings @ Habs
If I'm not mistaken he only had surgery after the 2nd injury. The first didn't require surgery. However, after watching him play last night it wouldn't be hard to convince me his hands had been surgically swapped with Michelangelo's David. In other words, at one point they were stone and now they're just gone completely.
AtlantaHotWings reacted to kipwinger in 1/17 - Wings @ Yuma Yotes - Bout to Start
What are you even talking about?! This team is about to go super saiyan. Guys were selling their souls tonight and their 48 year old ex-KHL goalie blew it for them. On three separate occasions I saw the hearts of Fabbri, Rasmussen, and Ben Chiarot nearly explode after working themselves to near death. I saw Berggren emerging as a genuine star. But that goddamn turd goalie let us down man. But it's always darkest right before the dawn. Like the Cleveland Indians in the classic "Major League" franchise, this ragtag group of misfits is about to turn this season around. Jakub Vrana is about to come back like Rick "Wildthing" Vaughn dude!!!!
I can wait to see the looks on all your faces.
AtlantaHotWings reacted to Jonas Mahonas in Winged Wheel Podcast
I need to look into how to do this. I'm 47 years old, so this isn't as simple for me. But it would be cool if I hosted it.
"Good afternoon, fellow Red Wings Fans AKA Complete Retards. Today, we're going to be talking about Jakub Vrana. Sixer, let's talk about his cocaine habit and whether or not he can hide it from the boss. I don't think so, but why don't you let us in a little bit on your knowhow here."
"Well, Jonas. It's only easy to conceal if you're not doing 50 grams a week. Sneaking an 8 ball into a club now and then is as easy as wearing a third sock on one of your feet and nobody noticing. But he must be ingesting an enormous amount for him to be this lethargic, lazy, and suck this much without it."
"Interesting. Is Marc still on the line?"
"Yah, he's been waiting for 20 minutes. Want to go to him now?"
"Marc, tell us what you think about the Jakub "The Iceman" Vrana."
"Well, I ..."
"Thanks Marc. Good input as always. Now, onto the Carley vs Daniella - Who's more bangable and why debate. I'm going to have to take this one seeing as FMichael hasn't had sex in 6 years, and 6er and Akabuto are both ***. I'm gonna go with Daniella here. Let me tell you why ..."

SY: Jakub, two of your teammates saw you doing cocaine, and now we're obligated to check you into the assistance program.
JV: I can handle it, Steve. I got it.
SY: We dont have a choice.
JV: Really, Steve? Really? Ok.
JV in his mind: "This is like coffee where Im from. They dont get it. Im fine."
Stevie in his mind: "FML. This dude is history."
Fans: "Get better, Jakub. You do whats good for you. Take your time."
Jonas and Walman6mil: "We want him castrated."
AtlantaHotWings got a reaction from town123 in Restarting the rebuild - Fully wiping the Holland slate clean
So trade both nothing says they have to sign with the teams they are traded to correct?
So best of both worlds get the picks etc and tell the boys. After you have a taste of the playoffs and understand what it's about come back home and get rewarded in a HUGE HUGE way for taking one for the team...

I don't have a "position" on Bertuzzi. All I've ever said is that I think a trade is likely given a few factors. You seem to be conflating my guess about Bertuzzi's future with some broader management strategy. If Bert wants to stay for a reasonable contract then SY should sign him. If he doesn't, trade him. I think the trade is more likely at this point.
SY to front office personnel: Guys, Tyler Bertuzzi is asking for more than I think he's worth. I think I'll take trade calls on him.
Front office personnel: Good, we've always hated Larkin and Hronek anyway.
SY: What does one have to do with the other?
Front office: Trade one you gotta trade em all bro.

There really is nowhere in the lineup for Zadina when this roster is healthy

Too many dum dums want Edvinsson paired with Seider. In reality, you want one of those two guys on the ice for 50 mins a game. You let them lead their own pair. You only put them together in a pinch when the game is on the line and you need a tying goal or some s***.
AtlantaHotWings reacted to bIueadams in Ben Chiarot $4.75 x 4
Exactly what ive been saying! Lalonde might not be as dumb as the last guy after all...
Finding a partner for Seider was never about getting the most talented Dman. It was about getting a Dman that compliments Seider so Seider can take his game to the next level. Dum dums like @Akakabuto dont understand this very basic concept.
Mo is like Datsyuk or Zetterberg. He's going to be touching the puck almost every play and controling the pace of the game. He needs a partner who does his job well and stays the hell out of his way. Exactly the same reason why Holmstrom was the best partner for Dats/Z. "Im just gonna stand over here and get really good at tipping pucks so you guys have more room to do your stud moves". Homer was terrible at a lot of aspects of the game, but he complimented our stars perfectly.
What does Seider need in a partner?
>a vet mentor
>a guy who can stand in and be tough when Seider wrecks someones shop
>a guy who can help in the D zone and stay the hell outta the way in the Ozone
>a guy who can keep up with heavy top line minutes
Chiarot checks literally all of those boxes perfectly.
Leafs and Jets fans are still whining about having to play against the Chiarot-Weber combo in the 2021 playoffs. Seider is basically a younger better version of Weber. This is going to be a top5 D pairing in the league.

Let's say we stay relatively healthy this year and most of our players have UP years, as we are sort of expecting with this new roster. What do our goal totals look like?
Larkin - 30 goals Bertuzzi - 30 goals Raymond - 30 goals Vrana - 30 goals Perron - 30 goals Copp - 20 goals Kubalik - 20 goals Fabbri - 20 goals Rasmussen - 15 goals Suter - 15 goals Zadina - 10 goals Erne - 10 goals Veleno - 10 goals Sundqvist - 10 goals Seider - 10 goals Chiarot - 5 goals Hronek - 5 goals Oesterle - 5 goals Smith - 5 goals Lindstrom - 0 goals Maata - 0 goals Total: 310 goals I don't think those figures are very ambitious at all for those players. But 310 goals for would put us in 3rd place in the entire league for goals for last year... behind only Florida and Toronto.
Now injuries will happen, and some players will disappoint. Like maybe Seider only scores x5. And Kubalik only x15. And Perron is hurt half the year. But I also think we have some player who could seriously surpass this figures too. Like Vrana goes out and pots x35. Bertuzzi x40. Zadina turns it on and gets x15 or x20. Veleno and Ras too.
I don't think we're a 4 line cup team yet, but this is definitely a deep 3 line team with a ? defense and upgraded goaltending. If Maata and Chiarot prove to be good upgrades (and maybe Eddog makes the team) we could be seriously dangerous when healthy. I have a feeling that even if Chia and Maata are lackluster, Seider is going to go POWER LEVEL OVER 9000 YOU HAVENT EVEN SEEN MY FINAL FORM mode and will carry the defense on his massive shoulders.
Lalonde has no excuses. I expect competitive hockey every ******* night DEREK.

This is the entire story right here.
SY is writing the book on how much more effective it is to develop young players in mens leagues overseas.
Tangent: I really do think we are living in the best timeline right now. I dont think we should look back and say "Illitch should have handed the team to SY in 2011". Best thing that ever could have happened was Holland ramming this team into the rocks for 10 years while SY cut his teeth else where. Now to return and recieve a blank slate and unlimited mandate with a refined agenda. I think we are witnessing SYs best work. His magnum opus. Hes building us a dream team. Turn of the century Wings round 2 Yzerman boogaloo.
