#2013659 Getflaf for Zetter

Posted by Guest on 10 July 2010 - 09:49 PM

This is really important. Gats didn't play in game 4 due to flue... Remeber result? 6:3. Then he is back and we look bad. Who is the major reason for that? His line of Perry and Selanne (sometimes Ebbet or Ryan) or Getzlaf himself? Getzlaf was playing againgt the Red Wings and he lost.


If you have a line with your two best pure scorers and your best playmaker and you then remove the playmaker, the snipers will really have a lot more difficulty in scoring. It's basic logic.

PS Don't get me wrong I love to death our centers, Zetter and Dats... There are no players in this league I would trade any of them (yeas, Crosby included).... except for R. Getzlaf.


Great. You're very much entitled to your own opinion. Also important is the awareness and acceptance of the fact that others may not agree with it.

PPS A guy who CAN TAKE OVER THE GAME? And there is only one in this league now.


And who is that? It's not Getzlaf, right?

Ow. You're hurting me so badly, baby.


#2012763 Brett Lebda signs with Toronto

Posted by Ram on 08 July 2010 - 04:03 PM

Lebda is a Notre Dame Fightin ***** and I thought he always will be a depth defensemen. Good luck with that one, ass.

Also, my buddies were at Cheli's when Lebda dropped the Cup and dented it. That is not a rumor. It's true. Photographic evidence to come once I find it on Facebook..

Well he went to ND so you know he is a stuck up ass.

If the wings offered him a two way minmum conract it would suprise me. There is no way we wanted him back.


#2013785 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Broken 16 on 11 July 2010 - 12:24 PM

These other teams can say they're interested all they want, Modano has said "Its either Detroit or retirement". I'll take him at his word.



Modano has never been real smart when it comes to what he says to the press, but even if he signs with another team, he wouldn't be a liar. He said (paraphrasing): "Right now it's either Detroit or retirement. I think it's narrowed down to that"

At the time, no other team had contacted him. It was very early in free agency and rest of the teams were still getting their s*** together. Detroit was one of the few teams that was pretty much all set and knew what kind of numbers they were gonna have to play with.

So you can take him at his word, but his poorly worded comment basically stated that RIGHT NOW it was only retirement or Detroit.

Phoenix? St. Louis? Does he really have the desire to retire playing for those teams?



Depends what he is looking for. If he is looking for one last decent payday to pad the coffers... then maybe. If he wants the best chance to win a Cup and money is secondary, then no. Detroit and San Jose are obviously better options.

It's getting to the point now, for me, that I'm hoping he just retires and goes away. He's annoying the hell out of me already.

This too: "Modano is keeping a close eye on teams like the Los Angeles Kings and possibly even the Phoenix Coyotes to see what moves they might make to create an opening"
hockeybuzz.com. I know, Eklund!



Well, this is just getting dumb if it's true. The novelty factor has wore off. I really wouldn't care if he went somewhere else. At least then I can get back to not liking him.


#2013580 Trade Idea with the Ducks

Posted by zettie85 on 10 July 2010 - 04:05 PM

Rafalski's NTC will make it harder to trade him than his $6m cap hit.


I think Rafi can foresee the future. He knew he would suck after a couple years in Detroit so he made sure he got that NTC. :hehe:


#2013563 Trade Idea with the Ducks

Posted by zettie85 on 10 July 2010 - 03:27 PM

People value players differently. In my eyes Stuart is way more valuable to this team than some think. He IS our 2nd best D-man most of the time. Wis can hit and fight but we don't need it. We also do not need an aging Marchant. He would just be adding something to this team that we already have a surplus on which is age.

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.


If he wasn't any good we would never have got him in the first place.

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

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.

#2013493 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by Guest on 10 July 2010 - 12:27 PM

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

#2013374 Red Wings Making Play for Modano

Posted by BUHdactyl on 09 July 2010 - 08:55 PM

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.
