  1. Brad Stuart has been on the ice for 9 of the 13 goals scored by Nashville. That's 69% of the opposition's goals. That is INEXCUSEABLE! I'll be so glad when this clown plays on another team next year.
  2. Brad Stuart needs to die... ANOTHER GOAL SCORED AGAINST US WITH HIM ON THE ICE!!!!!!!!!!!!
  3. I really do hate it when Babcock won't play Howard on back to back nights. Especially since he just had 6 days off! It's not like he's 39 years old, he's a kid, he can handle it. I know why they didn't play Conklin last night, it's out of respect for the opponent. As much as they won't admit it, it's just an unwritten rule that you don't put your scrub goalie in net against a s***ty team "just because".
  4. I'm in Seattle and I can't even view on the Flyers site. WTF?
  5. Yep, Ken and Mick just talked about him. They said that seat will not be allowed to be sat in or used for the rest of the season.
  6. Ericsson/Salei and the 4th line are all -4 tonight, not good.
  7. Homer didn't get a game misconduct, he'll be back in the 3rd.
  8. Because they don't play Detroit 82 times a season.
  9. God I love how predictable this team is. I called this 4 days ago.

  11. wow, isn't it amazing what A REAL goalie can do to a team, look at how Louongo just kept the Canucks in the game.
  12. thank god, put Howard, Osgood you ******* suck tonight, NEITHER of those goals should've went it.
  13. I'd almost want to gamble on a guy like Afinogenov. He's coming off 2 s***ty seasons in Buffalo, so he can't be asking for too much money, but he has the potential to be a Hudler like player and possibly even better if surrounded with the right players. He had back to back 20 goal season in 06 and 07, along with 61 pts in 56 games in 07 and was a +19. He'll also turn 30 in September, so he still should be in his prime, and at 6 feet, 190, he'll be a bigger body than Hudler for sure. His last contract had a cap hit of 3.3 mil, so maybe they can talk him into a one year "try out" kind of deal to redeem himself at like 2.3 mil. Then if he responds well, we can afford to pay him 3.5 or whatever next year and sign him long term.
  14. Well with Leino re-signing that gives the Wings 10 forwards, 8 d, and 2 goalies officially. We're still 2 forwards short and they only have like 3 mil left. Hudler is filing for arbitration and seeing as how he put up career numbers and will be a constant 20 goal scorer he's going to be commanding at least 3 mil a season. ESPECIALLY with Flip getting 3 mil as a comparison. The only way I see the Wings keeping Huds, is if they say to him, "look, we want to keep you around, but we can't afford to give you the 3 mil right now, so how about you re-sign for 2 years at a slight increase, then we'll up your contract after that when we have the cap space again?" So he can either wait it out for 2 years at a home town discount, or move on to another team and make his money. Since he already has a ring, it's not like he needs to go to a contender right away and might put up with just being on a "decent" team that has a shot at the playoffs. So, if we lose Hudler, I'd almost want to gamble on a guy like Afinogenov. He's coming off 2 s***ty season in Buffalo, so he can't be asking for too much money, but he has the potential to be a Hudler like player and possibly even better if surrounded with the right players. He had back to back 20 goal season in 06 and 07, along with 61 pts in 56 games in 07 and was a +19. He'll also turn 30 in September, so he still should be in his prime, and at 6 feet, 190, he'll be a bigger body than Hudler for sure. His last contract had a cap hit of 3.3 mil, so maybe they can talk him into a one year "try out" kind of deal to redeem himself at like 2 or 2.5 mil. Then if he responds well, we can afford to pay him 3.5 or whatever next year and sign him long term.
  15. For those of you wondering why his salary is only 800K instead of the 850K or more, it's because when you're on a 2 way contract like he was last season, he wasn't getting paid 850K while in the minors. He gets his AHL salary, then when he's called up, he's put on the 850K salary paid out normally. And don't forget, players don't get paid in the playoffs. He was essentially getting paid his AHL contract all last season except for like 4 weeks of the season when he saw a big bump up to his 850K salary. Now that he'll be on the roster full time, he'll be getting at least double what he made last year, all through out the season, which he should be very happy about.
