Valid source indeed.

#2301438 Alex Semin officially going to free agency

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 15 May 2012 - 10:30 AM

A lot of people are saying Semin has turned it around in terms of his work ethic, but I'd worried that he'd get a long term deal and he and Franzen would take turns seeing who could put in the least effort on a shift.

#2295285 Who do you blame for this unsuccessfully playoff run

Posted by Drake_Marcus on 21 April 2012 - 02:03 PM

I posted this in another thread but it's worth repeating here:

Top 6 Forwards: (Bertuzzi left off because he failed to get a single point)
--Datsyuk: 5gp 1g 2a 3pts +0
--Zetterberg: 5gp 2g 1a 3pts -3 (tied 1st in team scoring)
--Hudler: 5gp 2g 0a 2pts -3 (tied 1st in team scoring)
--Holmstrom: 5gp 1g 1a 2pts +0
--Filppula: 5gp 0g 2a 2pts -2
--Franzen: 5gp 1g 0a 1pts -1
Notes: Emmerton and Nyquist were tied for first in +/- with +1 (the only + players on the team)

Top 6 Defence:
--Kronwall: 5gp 0g 2a 2pts -2
--Quincey: 5gp 0g 2a 2pts -2
--Stuart: 5gp 0g 1a 1pts -5
--White: 5gp 1g 0a 1pts -2
--Lidstrom: 5gp 0g 0a 0pts +0
--Ericsson: 5gp 0g 0a 0pts -1

Those numbers right there tell you exactly why the Wings lost. Datsyuk was shut down by Suter (impressively so-- if anyone made a great impression on the Wings management you can bet it was Suter) Lidstrom didn't create offence and our top two lines were ineffective.

The best thing the Wings can possibly do is add Suter and Parise in the off-season.

1) You want Semin on this team?
2) AND you want to pay him $7 million.


That lineup is even less gritty than this season's. Those 3rd and 4th lines need to be dramatically restructured.

Keep Cleary. His health should be much better next season. And he was one of our better players early on in the series.

Worse of all, you don't want Helm back? Why on earth would you want to let Helm go?

Get rid of Kindl before Ericsson or Quincy, and pass on Semin, especially at that cap hit.

And why the hell would you want to get rid of Helm??? He isn't and probably won't ever be a top 6 forward, but he has amazing speed and is great on the PK, and for s decent cap hit I would bring him back in a heartbeat.

Anyone else feel Lidstrom looked pretty bad tonight?

#2280257 For once I agree with Don Cherry

Posted by Yzerfan1999 on 08 April 2012 - 12:42 PM

Crosby can't even dominate Zetterberg for one series let alone the entire league. Stamkos just hit 60 goals, does this mean he's "dominating the league"?


Sorry, did you want to have a discussion on semantics?

I know we are all upset cause Datsyuk doesn't get as much attention and him, but its just something you have to live with. 37 points in 22 games despite missing most of the last 2 seasons with a concussion is as dominant as you can get in the NHL if you ask me, and I think many would agree.

60 goals in a season is pretty dominant too - I don't reserve the term for just one player.

But Crosby is your villain, I get that. It must be tiresome investing all that emotion in a guy you hate though.

I have searched high a low on google but have had trouble finding pictures of the banners in the Preds' rafters. I know there are three: Commemorating their first playoff berth; commemorating the fans; idk wht the third is (possibly commemorating their establishment).

I AM ISSUING A CHALLENGE: Find pictures of these banners. The petiteness of the banners are SO easily teased. In case you're unaware, Preds fans, banners are usually issued when something is WON or to commemorate an INCREDIBLE event. One playoff birth is not an incredible event; maybe 21 consecutive berths, but definitely not one.
