#2211927 Brunnstrom is signed.

Posted by LeftWinger on 03 October 2011 - 03:06 PM

Well he beat Johnson out for the "Play until Mursak gets back" "Play until someone is traded" contract. Now he's got a new one; he gets to spend the first half of the season competing with Emmerton and Miller for two roster spots.


Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Hey Hudler, Goodbye!

#2211342 10/1 Exhibition GDT: Red Wings at Toronto Maple Leafs

Posted by 55fan on 01 October 2011 - 04:11 PM

terrible lineup for tonight, hopefully Leafs don't dress 3/4 of there roster tonight like last night. Helm has been invisible every game I watched with him, I don't think he will ever play in the top 6.

I don't see Helm as a top 6 guy, to be honest. I see him as a kickass third line guy who adds an amazing element that will give us great depth and a pk specialist.

And a cute guy for the younger girls to giggle over.

We're definitely dressing the B squad tonight.

Go Wings!

#2210656 Cleary out for rest of preseason, hopes to be ready Oct. 7

Posted by NBCnothingbutcrosby on 29 September 2011 - 05:49 PM

Cleary is already getting an early hop on being injured for another season! I'm guessing another 20+ games this year as well. Worst move by Ken Holland ever, I've been saying it for the past two years. A lot of haters when I first started saying that Cleary isn't worth his money... I'm sure you'll all agree by the end of the year. Please god cut Hudler and let Brunnstrom take his spot.

39 points...please add another poll option.

#2209807 Mursak is out

Posted by Drake_Marcus on 26 September 2011 - 02:56 PM

Chris Conner all the way!

A speedy checker... just what we have in abundance!

Brunnstrom please. Sign him dirt cheap and waive him if he falls on his face. He cost nothing to acquire, anyway.

#2209732 Mursak is out

Posted by Guest on 26 September 2011 - 03:47 AM

Drew freaking Miller.

Do you ever get sick of whining about him? First it was that we "lost" Ritola because of him. Now what?

#2209425 Fabian Brunnstrom

Posted by LeftWinger on 24 September 2011 - 04:23 PM

He looks like he is gonna earn a contract, but he won't start the season up here because of Jiri "Choke" Hudler...

#2209334 9/23 Exhibition GDT: Philadelphia Flyers 3 at Red Wings 1

Posted by sputman on 23 September 2011 - 08:42 PM

Commentators... talking about anything but hockey. Man... can't.. take.. this.. anymore... :angry:

leaps and bounds better than pittsburgh's crew, though.

#2208804 Will Ericsson Earn His Raise?

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 22 September 2011 - 11:16 AM

From what I have watched (every game since 2006), Kindl is far more sound than Erickson. I have seen the typical rookie mistakes, but it says a lot when I feel way more confident when Kindl is back there. He's not overly physical, but he gets back as a serviceable skater, protects the puck, and makes quick sharp passes out of the zone. When was the last time anyone saw Big Rig have a quick sharp pass on the tape? On the other note- I dont know how Smith will take the job of Kindl if they are going to be in 2 different leagues this year. Smith can still be sent down, and will be in order to get top-pairing in the AHL and 20+ minutes a night. Kindl will most likely rotate in and out with whoever is sucking more- Big Rig or Commodore.

To the larger topic at hand- I am still drinking the KennyKoolAid. If your largest mistakes as GM are named Cory Cross, Quincy, Hatcher, and the current Big Rig contract, then you are still by FAR the best GM in Hockey. I hope to see Erickson improve- I really do. However, I gave up on him last season. There were too many times that he just stagnated, and I just do not see the faith being fulfilled. If only someone would find out what he was eating during the Anaheim series, and feed him that from now on it may end up being alright. But as I said before- I do not believe at this point that I will be seeing that defenseman any time soon.

This line of reasoning always confuses me.

Kindl is "far more sound" than Ericsson, yet Babcock inexplicably only plays him 13 minutes a game in 48 games. Whereas Ericsson plays the full season at almost 19 minutes per game. And Kindl didn't see a second of playoff time. If he's far more sound, why would the Red Wings utilize him that way? They had Salei battling with Kindl for the final spot, so it's not like they're going to give it to Ericsson just on experience or reputation. And as you mentioned, Holland gives Ericsson a big raise, in spite of having a more sound player in the minors ready to fill his role?

Those are some pretty terrible decisions by Babcock and Holland if what you're saying was true.

The reality is Kindl is not more sound than Ericsson. That's not to say he won't develop and become that. But so far, he just isn't. More than anything, Kindl needs to prove himself and secure a permanent spot in the lineup. Then we'll see how he develops.

#2208127 Babs sets defense pairings for camp

Posted by hillbillywingsfan on 19 September 2011 - 12:49 PM

Exactly. I like the Commodore signing for the price and depth purposes, but he couldn't stay up with Columbus and they have one of the worst defensive units in the league.

How do you think Lids would fair on such an awful defense like Columbus had? I think you would see real low numbers from him as well. I think as a whole the D has to be fairly good. Can't be up to one person. That's why I think Commodore will do good here. He has other good/great D that will free him up somewhat so that he can play his true game and not a style that he really doesn't play. But that's just me.

#2206804 McCrimmon, Salei on board Russian plane crash

Posted by Z and D for the C on 07 September 2011 - 09:43 PM

Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord;
even so saith the Spirit, for they rest from their labors.

O God, whose mercies cannot be numbered: Accept our prayers on behalf of thy
servant, and grant an entrance into the land of light and joy, in the fellowship
of thy saints; through Jesus Christ thy Son our Lord, who liveth and reigneth
with thee and the Holy Spirit, on God, now and for ever. Amen.

And here I thought we could get through this without some pretentious religious crap. <_< I'm sure Rusty's 3 1/2 month old son feels really blessed that god killed his dad.

Cmon guys, this isn't the time or place for a religious arguement.

Agreed completely. It's a shame some people have to flaunt it so arrogantly.
