upcoming free agent PFs

Iginla
Perry
Getzlaf
Jagr
Morrow
Penner
Antropov
Horton
Clowe
Clarkson
Knuble
Bickell
Anthony Stewart

 

Perry is a sniper, not a power forward; Getzlaf is certainly not a power forward (any Anaheim fan would laugh to see that assignation given him); Jagr is not a power forward; Morrow is old and fragile; Penner is generally garbage; Antropov is a wuss; San Jose fans hate Clowe this season; Clarkson isn't going anywhere; Knuble is long since old and washed up; Bickell is not a power forward; and Stewart is not a power forward.

 

Horton is a decent option, assuming Boston lets him go.

Ya, its just like I said earlier, Perry is more of a scorer than a power forward...either way I would love him here....

So does everyone here think Franzen is a sniper? Since Perry isn't a "PF" he's a sniper?

 

Funny the numbers compared between them both. Especially the PIM numbers.

Yeah I guess shame on me and every other hockey fan I talk to in "real life." Cause everyone I know would take Perry in a heartbeat. And even most my Wild friends thing Perry is a PF. Sorry again.

 

And it might be sad and pathetic but the days of Tocchet, Neely and Shanny or whoever else you want to consider as a PF in todays NHL are extinct. Don't agree?  

 

I know it's sad all around.



 

And that's a bad example of Perry's toughness cause it was against us and Dats.

 

No, he's spotpicked against others teams.  Look up his track record.  And I doubt most informed fans would call him a power forward.

 

And thanks for being sorry so much.

Franzen is supposed to be a sniper.  He's not doing it too well.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I'm sorry again :P

 

This is a Red Wings forum with Red Wing fans biased opinion's. You also don't think the Hawks are for real? Funny my brother called me tonight (die hard Sharks fan) and said the Hawks remind him of the 94 Wings team. Damn Sorry again.

Uh...do you really need MY opinion of Franzia? To keep it clean, NO he is far from a sniper and FAR from a power forward...I will stop there.

I guarantee you Wings fans aren't the only people who think Perry is a wimp and a spotpicker.  



BTW, if we had a time machine to ten years ago, we'd have the best power forward in hockey sitting on our current roster in Bertuzzi.  

 

Imagine that on Datsyuk's line.

Maybe so but still most NHL friends of mine would take Perry in a heartbeat.

 

Spotpicker or not what you say is true and maybe it is. So be it.

 

Still one of the best forwards in the league. Sad but true.



Uh...do you really need MY opinion of Franzia? To keep it clean, NO he is far from a sniper and FAR from a power forward...I will stop there.

 

No I don't honestly. I know where you stand thank you. But you can keep on complaining I don't mind lol

Bert indeed was a different hockey player now compared to 10 years ago. You remember that first round in 02 vs the Nucks?

 

Bert use to be a powerhouse and yes a "Power Forward"

are you sure you are a Wings fan? I don't care either way, but you seem to get off by rubbing losses in our faces (the 94 Sharks and Datsyuk v. Neiderlander fight)

 

I will just say this...I will take the 94 loss to the Sharks, the Datsyuk v. Nederlander and Perry draws or losses, I will take the 95 sweep by the Devils and the 96 heartbreak the Av's because I have 4 Cups since we lost to the Avs, what do the Sharks have? Of course your brother is going to be bitter...what do the Hawks have? 1 Cup...as matter of fact, since the 05' lockout only two teams have been to the finals twice and they each won a Cup and since then the finals opponents and winners have all been different.  I will take all that along with the 4 Cups, 6 Presidents Trophies and 21 straight playoffs...

 

St. Michael's Brother:

 

 

:lol: Couldn't resist!  BTW what exactly was it about the 94 Wings that reminds him of the Hawks?  If anything he should refer to the 95 Wings or the 96 Wings for huge letdowns... Sure the Sharks beating the #1 seed Wings in 94 was an upset, but it was 7 games and Osgood was a rookie goalie...tell him to talk about the Wings when the Sharks manage to win a Cup or 4...

See the difference between you and me is besides us being both die hard Wings fans.

 

I'm a hockey fan in general and look at the game at all levels and aspects and from different teams perspectives compared to say someone like you. Just a Wings perspective BUT this is a Wings forum. lol

 

No sh** Sherlock the reason why I bring up our negatives Ozzie's blunder in 94 the Sweep in 95, Avs in 96 those hurt a lot and are memorable and don't go away. As is the Cup Wins however those sting with me the most and stick with cause they happened FIRST. Had to go through some sh** to win it all.

 

Yes.

For the right price, Holland would be insane to not try and get Iginla as our "win it for __" candidate. He'd add a nice dimension to our attack.

Well, fast forward to now...nothing stings more than watching this team struggle to score goals...I have said it all season long, and before the season, Corey Perry would be great here and I have always beat the drum of Bobby Ryan. Power Forward or not, I would take both of those guys over what we have playing with Datsyuk now AND Franzia...

I would like that as well, but man, at what cost?

... at a premium price. Probably not worth it.

No need to force a trade or signing. It may not be a popular strategy but I believe Holland is content with being a 5th place team every year because we are rebuilding. This is how the wings rebuild. Just look at how our defense has changed and the future looks very promising. Holland knows we need top end talent and size in the top 6 but just overpaying someone cause they're available is not the right way to do it. Of course holland will inquire about these FA's but if they want too much then we will just have to wait. All the while our prospects become assets. You have to look at the big picture.

Forget all the contract nonsense, let's add Backes, Hartnell, and Marchand. Done deal. Who cares where they play for and what their contract states, if we ask nicely maybe they will say yes. Make it happen NHL 13... I mean Kenny.

this thread is a ridiculous attempt to play gm. 

 

a month ago, we didn't need offense, we needed to buy out and trade 4 of our defensemen for yandle and bouwmeester. Now the same d-core is fine and we need to magically get 3 power forwards (for whatever reason) Everytime this team doesn't perform exactly the way the LGW executive gm's want, they sell off the whole farm and the milk, to bring in a horse. Our offense is fine, we had a lot of great opportunities today, but we hit a hot goalie, Zetterberg has seemingly hit a bit of a rut, but he'll be fine. My only concern is moving abby and cleary of the second line, I'd rather have anyone else up there, literally anyone, even Gustavsson would do a better job on datsyuk's wing...

Ive said this before, but the Datsyuk Perry fight is what made me like him. Holmstrom was being his normal Swedish ***** self and taking pot shots at the Ducks while Dats was trying to settle things down. Perry saw it as Dats trying to hold the guy back so Holmstrom could do his fairy boy tactics. He immediately got pissed and grabbed Datsyuk without thinking about the long term repercussions. He then realized that if he were to smash Pasha's face in, he'd be hated forever league wide, so he took it easy and let Pasha draw with him. Perry totally backed off in that fight once he realized he was fighting Dats. Cool move.

Hmm - if there's a few teams looking to add him by the deadline - then yes I'm thinking he'll come with a high price tag, and may very well not be worth it.

Iginla is at the stage now where Calgary needs to keep him. He's a retired number for them. Trading him now would be bad for the flames.
