#2013554 Trade Idea with the Ducks

Posted by Johnny Diamonds on 10 July 2010 - 03:10 PM

Well gee, I guess we ought to trade for this guy because he hit Doan that one time. Bon voyage, Stuie! :D


Whatever smartass. For a 26 year old he has a pretty good body of work. If Stuart was as "awesome" as some of you think he is, he wouldn't have been a vagabond traded by 4 teams before he ended up here.

Marchant like I said kills penalties adds more speed to the team and he can win faceoffs. What's wrong with having another guy like that if say Modano doesn't sign here?



Let me know the next time Stuart goes out and does this to a guy who was smashing our team all over the ice.

Oh... it's an enforcer thing. I get it now. Going back to the real Modano thread.

Mike...you're breaking my balls here :/

Detroit can only wait for so long for him to decide, if he takes many more days maybe it's time for a planB, plenty of money for a 3rd line tough grinder, 6th D and lock up abdelkader, helm etc

Your posts are being minus'd because by not wanting to sign Modano you basically admit you don't realize how important depth is because Modano would be an incredible depth signing. Without Modano our bottom 6 is average, with Modano it's one of the best in the league. Combine that with one of the better top sixes in the league and you're looking at making a really deep run in the playoffs. Like I said before, we won in 08 because of our depth. We were out in the second round this year because we had none.

If you are concerned with depth we have a gaping hole in our defense that needs attention and I'm not sold on Smith just yet. If you just want a Modano jersey with a funny number on the back keep clicking the minuses on posts that suggest anything other than Modano is God.

Losing prospects (Ritola), young players (Miller), or much needed NHL ice time (Abdelkader) to sign a washed-up NHL legend for ONE season is not a depth move. He was just offered a contract by the team he watched as a kid... I don't know about you, but if I still had passion for the game I wouldn't hesitate, let alone drag my toes for what seems like an eternity to make that decision. The fact that he hasn't signed a contract yet makes me question whether or not he still has the hunger. Dallas dropped him like a bag of s***, and for them to do that to their legendary player - their Yzerman, is pretty unsettling. Don't get me wrong, I like the guy and I'm sure he's got something left in the tank but I'm not comfortable with Abdelkader wasting another year in the AHL or Ritola being waived just to find out exactly what that something is.

I was on the Modano bandwagon at first but his whole thing has become a terrible joke and I'm over it. There's no denying he was a force back in the day, but I think most of us are giving 2010 Modano just a little too much credit.

ROFL omg stevkraus got destroyed in this thread.


#2013104 Sharks sign RFA Niklas Hjalmarsson

Posted by dat's sick on 09 July 2010 - 12:06 PM

If Lidström had retired I wonder if Holland wouldn't have tried to "steal" Hjalmarsson too.. if the Sharks get him that will make them so much stronger.

And lol at the Hawks.

The price would have to be right ofcourse, but why not take a risk on a guy who put up 60+ points last year? I'm very familiar with his problems in work ethic, but perhaps the Wings organization can snap him out of it. And Crymson, try to actually contribute with your posts once in a while instead of just trolling the site and berating everyone else.

Abdelkader does not have enough offensive upside to center a third line atm

And I think Modano will be more succesful in the assist department than abdelakder

MODANO TO HUDLER SCOOOORES

Funny how people talk about youth when Detroit's "veteran" team was able to beat one of the younger teams in the league back in 08.

Eh, f*** that. I WANT YOUNG PLAYERS!!

Honestly, you sound like the media after the 2001 playoffs. And last time I checked Holland was able to prove them wrong considering he knows more about the game and the players in his system than anyone on these forums.


Please don't respond to my posts, It's beyond moronic and we've done this dance before. I'm so sick of this "OMG WE WONZ DA CUP and can't do anything wrong mentality s***"

Chicago just won the cup and half their team just left because of poor management. DETROIT has lost good players from bad decisions just like that. To think otherwise shows a real lack of understanding. Some of it was cap related, some was NOT!

If Holland Signs Modano, it will mean losing a good young player (mistake). This has Chelios written all over it.


#2011843 Ritola, Miller or Eaves?

Posted by Aussie_Wing on 07 July 2010 - 10:15 AM

In a perfect world, you keep all 3 and don't sign Modano.

In a less perfect world, you (unfortunately) sign Modano, trade Miller and keep Eaves and Ritola.

Every team has at least one "enforcer" on their roster.I don't wanna hear that Abdelkader can be our enforcer.No.I don't wanna hear that our powerplay can be our enforcer.No.I'm sick of watching us getf****** knocked around night after night.GIVE ME Af****** ENFORCER!!!I KNOW I'm NOT THE ONLY ONE THAT FEELS THIS WAY.


Tell me the last Cup champion that won with an enforcer regularly dressing in the playoffs.

I'll give you a hint. It was Tampa Bay and Chris Dingman in 2004. Five Cups won with no enforcer? All of those star players left unprotected still won Cups?

Hmm....

Go watch some MMA if fighting is what you want. Otherwise, shut your yap and appreciate hockey, whether it's a physical game or a finesse game. Both things are still hockey, believe it or not.
