I'd rather have Torontos fourth line than this edition of a fourth line :(

 

I think the DetroitRedWings have given up too soon on Emmerton, sure he wasn't that great but the guy is still young and could improve why does it hurt to have him at a very low salary aav?

 

Yeah, once again we have a throwaway 4th line, instead of a 4th line that can provide energy and physicality.  Our 4th line is usually a bunch of jobbers.


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

Neither Yzerman nor Nill was all over this? Interesting.

Believe it or not, every general manager makes mistakes. If you're looking for one who doesn't, then you're going to come away disappointed. Holland has been excellent in most ways; he's got a good coaching staff, ices a competitive team no matter what, and has the system stocked full of excellent prospects despite a long-term, utter dearth of high draft picks. He's not counted by many as the best GM in the league for nothing, and the fact that he is imperfect does not mean that he is terrible.

 

 

The Penguins had reportedly offered him a contract as well, even going so far as to have Crosby contact him.

 

 

Babcock wanted Cleary, and indeed it seems that he wanted Cleary more than Holland did. Bertuzzi was still good for 40+ points per season when he was signed, and he was also a prime contributor in the shootout.

 

I agree that Samuelsson was a terrible signing, though there's no knowing how things could have gone if not for his injuries last season. Fortunately, it was only two years.

 

The dumb moves Holland has made have been no-brainers.  Not just hindsight being 20/20.  Bringing back Cleary and signing Sammy to that contract were moves anyone on LGW could foresee as mistakes.  

 

Holland needs to put more trust in guys in the minors, instead of giving us his "overripe" quote.  If we're talking fruits, Tatar is and Nyquist are fresh, while Cleary and Sammy are rotten.  Meanwhile, Bertuzzi is a dead plant.  Yeah, he scored 40 points two years ago. He's 38 and basically didn't play last year.  It's pathetic these guys are still on the roster, and it doesn't take a genius GM to see they're a mistake.

What in flying f*** is going on?

Nyquist down
Emmerton centering the 4th line on Wednesday
Tatar scratched
Monster and Tootoo on IR, but not LTIR

Man, the only thing exciting is that Oulette's been recalled, but why?

None of this makes one pubic hair's worth of sense to me. I feel like I just took Salvia or something.

I wish some team would have claimed Emmerton to get him off the roster.

 

Nothing personal, but there are too many bodies and Emmerton is taking the spot of a better player. Emmerton being a center is insignificant. He gets about five minutes of ice time and you could send out one of the other centers to take draws, if necessary.

Lol, Tatar scratched. The guy who was one of our best pre season players.

I really don't think they see a place for him on the team. He'll probably be moved when Tootoo returns.

As is always the case, Mike is one of the best coaches in the game, but he drives me mental with the line-ups we throws out most nights early in the year. Hopefully Sammy is riding pine by next week.

I feel like Tatar plays the way Babs wanted Huds to play more like, going to the net, shoot first mentality, and Tatars playoff performance in the AHL shows this little guy's a competitor. Its early, not even a game in but I gotta hope soon Tatar gets the benefit of the doubt before some of our veterans.

Miller, Emmerton, Bertuzzi, and Sammy are all better than Tatar at this point...? right...

 

I feel like babs is putting sammy out there honestly hoping he gets injured and can be put on ltir for the year

Eureka!  You've hit on it.  Sammy plays.  No enforcer.  Sammy's a sitting duck.  Nyquist gets the call up and Sammy sits on LTIR unless we absolutely need him.

 

Genius.  Pure, mad genius.

Firstly, I think you are looking too far into the future, and also no one is going to take a run at Sammy, he will just hand the puck over and say take it, no need for violence. I predict he injures his boob or groin in practice wednesday before he even plays a game, Tatar slots in on 3rd line, we win a trillion - 1


then Bert gets back spasms, and goose gets called up. More importantly, Why did Goose get sent down in favour of callin Ouellet and "emdog" up?

So, apparently this is the explanation for Coreau and Ouellet being called up:

 

"The Wings also needed to add defenseman Xavier Ouellet and goalie Jared Coreau to the 23-man roster in order to reach the cap limit.

In order for teams to get cap relief from long-term IR, a team must use up all of its cap space and roster spots first."

bull. Nyquist makes 50k more than Ouellet, I don't buy that for a minute

Ok, I drank some whiskey flavored Kool Aid and I have decided to be the drunk optimist here.

 

Babs and Holland are just lighting a fire under Nyquist and Tatar... they are going to be so hungry and determined that when they get in the lineup they will "tie" for the Calder.

 

Brilliant coaching Babs.

I'm thinking oueletts up for one of two reasons, either there's a trade in the works, or they really have no idea what theyre going to do when players get healthy and don't wanna use up nyquists two games.

The trade route could also be why coreau is up instead of mrazek, but it could just be the easiest way to get cap/roster compliant.

"But early going in the season, tie goes to the veteran not to the kid. That’s just life. It’s amazing how that works. We’ll get it worked out.”

 

I like Babcock, but that quote has to be the most frustrating and nonsensical quote I have ever heard him utter.

Those guys could all be traded without calling them up. Malik gives a pretty good explanation of what's going on. http://kuklaskorner....llet-recalled-t

Emmerton recalled, Nyquist sent down.  Sometimes Ken Holland, you make it very, very hard to defend you.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
