At grinding in the corners, digging in front of the net, and playing defense?
Kariya barely even does any of those things. The Wings already have a bunch of scoring forwards.
Kariya's purpose is offense. Last season he scored 43 points playing on the Blues' top line with Oshie and Backes. What line will he play on in Detroit, and what line will he play on? Will it be Kariya/Filppula/Franzen on the second line? Or perhaps it will be Kariya/Datsyuk/Holmstrom? I guess I'm finding difficulty seeing where adding Kariya in those situations makes an improvement to the roster all-around.
I agree completely
People may as well say, "Kariya has softer hands than Draper"
Seriously so much good has been going on lately for this guy..in the good way... long nice vaccation (almost the whole month of may just recovering), finally getting married, babcock stated that he will get reunited with datsyuk...the odds ought to be very favourable for Z to have a great season... The guy should be in the zone, im counting on it
This makes me ill for some reason. I don't know if it's the fact that she's got her boobs hanging out it like every picture that was posted, if it's the Where's Waldo Jail Bird suits, or both. Funny thing is I had a dream last night that I was at their wedding...my version was better.
But you know it's all in good fun and they're happy so good I just never thought I'd see someone like Lilja dressed like that. Yey for happy newlyweds!!!
Don't hate cause your boobs aren't pushed up like that. If ya got em flaunt em!
Modano's +/- last three seasons were -6, -13, -11...is that what the Wings want to add? Holland says they have done well with veterans in the past, but our team is full of experienced guys who have all been to the big dance once or twice. All I see Mike adding might be increased ticket sales with the Michigan native thing.
I don't see Holland as having ever signed a player for ticket sales, other then selling tickets by winning. So there is no reason to believe Holland is doing this for any reason but that his assessment is like a lot of us who think signing Modano for 1.25 mil would be a coup.
1 out of 28 is not bad=)
Meatloaf's sequel song? You want me, you're gold fish, you drive a panda, ... but one out of 28 aint bad...
I thought her wedding dress looked exquisite. Very classy and elegant. I also loved the fascinator/veil combo she had, rather than a traditional long veil attached to the back of her hair. I thought it was very sleek and modern.
I also liked that Hank channeled Johnny Cash -- an all-black formal get-up can look good, if tailored appropriately.
I'm not so sure that's Kronner's new gf, just a woman to accompany with...
I have a theory about Kronner but I'll keep it for myself as it's just a wild theory.
55Fan: Yeah, Emma hired one of them famous wedding planning people in sweden that plan expensive, glorious wedding's for different celebrities... her (3) dresses are designed by Lars Wallin in case you wanted to know, lol. And tomorrow it's basically just a brunch together with everyone and then it's over.
If I were those guys I'd want want short term deals if this is how they're treated.
Yes, Helm and Abby have not been treated well by the Wings organization, that is something you often hear about this franchise.
You post too much by the way, no need to be so controlling.
You mean controlling . . like trying to dictate what is the appropriate amount of posting.
That's the problem isn't it? you had to speak about his past. He's not that player anymore, far from it. Helm would score much better this season with Hudler on his line and some stability. He can do everything we need from the 3rd line center, everything. Modano fits fine but we don't need him. We have to many forwards as it is. We probably lose Ritola for nothing and maybe more. Why to fill a spot that that's already occupied by a great young player? This isn't pre lockout, where you can sign a vet to play every position.
This is short sided thinking, it's a bad practice. I hope the guy just retires.
Um, I think you mean shortsighted and also I don't think the phrase "still very good" is speaking about the past it is speaking of the present.
His own team want's to move on, that's exactly what the Wings should do.
His own team is not in the same situation as the Wings. The Wings should make the playoffs with a ripe and well developed team that has a legitimate shot at winning the Stanley Cup and only need to tweak their team. Dallas on the other hand did not make the playoff and is rebuilding their team for future success. It is not the same to compare what Dallas needs and what Detroit needs.
Hmm. No Babs? Kenny? Stevie? They probably couldn't make it or something. That sucks. Assuming Z invited them.
Well, Z probably figured they have a packed schedule anyways, no need to bring them over to Europe for 3 days for just a wedding, maybe babcock is enjoying some vaccation up in his summerplace in saskatoon, Stevie is busy with his GM job, and i guess Kenny is also busy, or atleast i hope(?).
