#2494636 3/11 GDT: Red Wings 1 at Blue Jackets 4

Posted by VM1138 on 11 March 2014 - 08:37 PM

If we hadn't blown the first 20 games we'd be okay. Early season points were critical once again.

eah....we literally watched this team fall apart. Bodies and equipment both. The season is literally disintegrating these past few games.

If we lose this game I think it's a fair bet to say that playoffs are out of the picture. Not mathematically of course, but Columbus is the hottest team in the league, and we'll need to put together a streak longer than anyone they put together for the rest of the year to make it. Or else count on another team ahead of us going on an epic losing streak.

The graph previously posted shows the number of trades has nothing to do woth success or winning Cups. You've got winners all along that spectrum.

So this is how the streak ends. Ridiculous.

We've joked about it all year but it's time to get serious: fire the trainers/doctors/whoever is supposed to be getting these guys healthy and keeping them that way.


#2493993 UFA/RFA Re-Signing, What Does Everyone Get?

Posted by VM1138 on 10 March 2014 - 07:39 AM

Don't forget Alfie has a bonus next season that counts against the cap. $2.5 million, I think. So trchnically he agreed to play here for $5. Unless a second year was part of a gentleman's agreement he will command about $5 million more, giving him a cap hit of about $7 million, I think.

Unless they finagle a two year deal for less. Still, I want him back. But playing him on the third is one of the dumber things Babcock has done.


#2493972 Weiss - who would take him next season and does he have a full NTC

Posted by VM1138 on 09 March 2014 - 10:25 PM

Weiss can play wing. No reason it has to be either Legwand or Weiss.

Franzen-Datsyuk-Z
Weiss-Legwand-Alfredsson

is a heck of a top 6.

Then, Tatar-Sheahan-Nyquist as the 2b line.

I hope he plays. Let's go balls out, so to speak. All the firepower we have should be up. Vets experience will be needed in tghe playoffs but right now if a player can score, they should play.

Everyone keeps saying Legwand is declining. His stats are remarkably consistent, and the last few years he's been right at about 50 points each time. This year he should crack it again.

So far we've heard Jarnkrok or Ferraro.  Nothing official and nothing reliable.  Ferraro makes sense.  He doesn't really have a future with the Wings.

Maybe the prospect is intentionally hiding.  They can't trade him if they can't find him!

Whoa, way too much if Jarnkrok is gone.  Don't mind him sending Eaves. Like the guy but we've got too many similar players and he deserves to play somewhere.  I view that as a favor for Eaves.

Legwand has 40 points thus far. He's far from a scrub, like some people are suggesting.

 

What I find interesting is we don't have a recap yet with interviews from Holland like we normally do.

 

He might not be done yet.

Why is everyone so down on Legwand? He's played every game this year, is leading Nashville's forwards in scoring, and instantly becomes one of our top scorers, too.  Not a superstar goal scorer, but he will likely finish the year with 15 goals at least.  And 30 assists so far isn't anything to shrug at on a team like ours that has trouble passing sometimes.

 

 

EDIT:  I was going off memory, so I'm wrong.  He won't be one of our top scorers.  He's played nearly twice as many games as anyone on our roster, but over a full season he'd probably fall in the middle of the pack.  Not bad, still.  Sort of like a Flip, 50-60 point guy.

Well, folks, this very minute could be the minute the longest playoff streak in professional sports dies.
