#2613219 The "enigmatic" Tomas Jurco: A Thread

Posted by number9 on 04 June 2015 - 11:28 PM

If they would've left tats, sheahan, and Jurco together I think the chemistry alone would've upped his production.
Worst case scenario, he's big, fast, hits, and his production hasn't made his value rise to the point of deserving a huge raise...
So even if he doesn't become a top six guy within the next few years, keeping him won't be too costly.
Plus, he does have the potential to break out.
There is just too Much to like about him to worry about his stats just yet

 

I feel like Jurco has the skill size and speed, that'd I'd b fine paying him contracts based on production for years to come, even if he doesn't score crazy amounts (but scores enough where his contract is viable) I'd be happy with it. He's the kind of player that could break out tomorrow, or at 26. Either way I want him on my team, he has all the skills.




#2614127 Report: Cleary wants to return for 1 more season

Posted by krsmith17 on 12 June 2015 - 12:52 PM

Yes, Jurco could have and should have been sent down last season. I think he should have started the season in Grand Rapids, even if we were short with the big club and we had to sign a vet. He simply wasn't ready. There's not a doubt in my mind that both Jurco and Pulkkinen would have benefitted from Tomas spending one more season in the minors. Make no mistake though, losing Nestrasil to Carolina last season was no huge loss, by any stretch. He will top out at 30 points, and those players are a dime a dozen.

 

On Cleary, I honestly don't believe he will be on the 23 man roster in October. If he is offered another contract it will be based on a tryout. I'd love to see him stay with the organization, much like Draper and Maltby have, in some sort of training (strength and conditioning) role. I love Cleary, being a fellow Newfie, and I wish he had more left in the tank, but it's clear that he has given all he can as a player. He's done...

#2613305 Which Sweater Do RWs Retire First - Feds or Ozzy?

Posted by kliq on 06 June 2015 - 01:12 AM

Wait, what? Sergei Fedorov was a "good" player? How jaded are these fans...without that "good" player, Detroit is still in a Stanley Cup drought...I believe that whole-heartedly...

 

We won in 2008 without Fedorov. Why would we still be in a cup drought without him?




#2613157 Khan: Jeff Blashill to be announced new head coach next week

Greg Brady ‏@bradyfan590 8h8 hours ago
Two things: #NHL prefers it be announced on off-day between G3/G4 of Stanley Cup Final. Blashill has expressed some interest in....

I hope they announce that s*** *during* thef****** game.

And big ups (1991 called, wants its slang back) to the Knube!

So not even interviewing other candidates great just great

 

What would be the point?  I'm pretty sure it was decided years ago that when Babcock was no longer the coach, Blashill would step in.  He knows the system and he's been very successful in the AHL playing our system with our prospects, that he will now be coaching on the Wings.  You're not going to find anyone else out there with those kind of credentials.

I know you're being sarcastic, but it really is great. Blash is the right way to go. He has been groomed for this for the past 4 years.

So it's a coronation, Holland didn't even bother talking to Carlyle, Wilson, MacLean, Boucher, or Tortorella?  

 

Why bother?  Two of those guys suck, and the other three don't fit our organizational philosophy.  When McLellan and Bylsma were hired elsewhere, the (already low) probability that we'd hire anyone else fell to zero.

If there is doubt and discussion about whether a jersey should be retired, it's not going to happen. As you can see, plenty of doubt about 91 and 30 here.

No one here was posting threads to discuss whether 19 or 5 would go up in the rafters.


#2612887 The "enigmatic" Tomas Jurco: A Thread

Posted by wings87 on 02 June 2015 - 06:00 PM

I don't think you can call him enigmatic after 2 seasons. He's had 1 good year and 1 bad, that's all there is to it. With Blashill coming in he'll be used properly (scoring role, not checking). So I expect a better year from him.


#2612884 The "enigmatic" Tomas Jurco: A Thread

Posted by nyqvististhefuture on 02 June 2015 - 05:42 PM

Still only 22 and was used more as a checker ... Still think he can at least get around 20 goals

To soon to give up on jurco ... I think Blashill will get him going again


#2612516 WCF : (3) Chicago Blackhawks vs. (1) Anaheim Ducks

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 31 May 2015 - 12:24 PM

Oh wel.  

 

I'm pulling for the Lightning but unfortunately they feel like the young Cinderella team that loses to the veteran Cup team in the Finals.  

 

 

And I agree. That goal was about as kicked as you can get.  There is zero standard for this in the NHL.

Posted by MTU_Huskies963 on 30 May 2015 - 10:17 PM

How do the hawks manage to play so many of these games where they get called for 1 judgment call or less? Then add on top of that the kicked in goal. I still remember that BS game against the wings when they were called for 0 penalties.

One team has Stevie, the other doesn't. f*** Chicago, forever and ever. Won't be watching, but hopefully Chicago loses.




#2612477 2015 SCF : Chicago Blackhawks vs. Tampa Bay Lightning

Posted by Wings_Toledo on 31 May 2015 - 10:10 AM

I thought the cap was supposed to create parity for the league?  Still the same teams every year that make it this far; they just do it with their high draft picks from tanking for years.  Even several years ago I would still watch most of the playoffs after the Wings were eliminated because it was still entertaining for me.  Now though?  Haven't watched a game since our Game 7 against the Bolts.  The product that the NHL trots out there every year is getting worse and worse.  I figure the only way to send a message is to not give them any money and not watch the games.
