#2306777 2012 SCF : Los Angeles Kings vs. New Jersey Devils

Posted by VM1138 on 11 June 2012 - 09:38 PM

Getting excited, even though I don't care about either team. The Cup is just that special.

On the other hand, this has been a pretty lackluster game. LA has looked good, as usual, but bleh. Place is quiet, playoffs have been dull.


#2305766 Why Evander Kane is Worth the Price

Posted by VM1138 on 07 June 2012 - 08:08 AM

Why is he being discussed so much lately? He's not going to leave Winnipeg. They'd be one of the worst managed teams to let him go.


#2305558 Darren McCarty seeks protection from former pals

Posted by VM1138 on 06 June 2012 - 08:20 AM

Once you live a live like he has, it's nearly impossible to break free from it. It's sad and I wish him the best. He's a Detroit sports icon and I hope all these psychos leave him alone so he can continue rebuilding his life.


#2305507 Wings interested in Garrison

Posted by VM1138 on 05 June 2012 - 09:35 PM

Don't know anything about him, but I like the fact that Holland will pull the trigger right away on the 1st.


#2304738 Tim Thomas.

Posted by VM1138 on 01 June 2012 - 10:09 PM

Is it just coincidence the amount of crap Timmy's gotten since making his political affiliation known? I think not.

esteef


Yeah, everyone loved Tim Thomas until he expressed his opinion. It's amazing how petty people are.


#2304242 Nick Lidstrom retires after 20 seasons

He just mentioned Filppula as one of the three captain candidates. Shudder.


#2304209 Post-Lidstrom CapGeek Thread

With all the space we have, we can do better than that.


#2304085 Red Wings Next Captain

Posted by VM1138 on 30 May 2012 - 09:30 PM

C - Zetterberg
A - Datsyuk
A- Parise
A- Kronwall

I know Parise wouldn't have done anything yet, but we are asking him to leave his captaincy. He clearly has some leadership ability and I think it's a nice bone to toss him.


#2303472 Red Wings make contract offer to D Justin Schultz

Posted by VM1138 on 27 May 2012 - 10:53 PM

Why wouldn't you try to get a top level prospect through free agency?

Every team in the league is going to make him an offer, so it all depends on who puts together the best welcome package.


#2303398 Hasek wants to play in the NHL again

Posted by VM1138 on 26 May 2012 - 06:57 PM

even though he is really old he is really competitive, imagine you had a floater on your team cough Fr -cough-ranzin...

and you have Dom backing up that night and your lazy ass shift is over and you skate back to the bench and then you get ripped in half by Hasek.

All the guy ever wanted to do was win, theres nothing wrong with a guy like that on your team.


I can't think of another goalie who was as competitive as Hasek. Having him on a team with Shanahan and Yzerman was unreal as far as heart went.

And I'm with everyone else. I know this would be a bad move, but Hasek is just so great that I'd still want him back.


#2303064 Report: Alain Vigneault confirms Roberto Luongo wants to leave Canucks

Posted by VM1138 on 24 May 2012 - 04:53 PM

I'll be happy when I don't have to hear that anymore


Until he goes to Columbus and we have to hear it 6 times a year.


#2302953 #6 New Jersey Devils vs. #1 New York Rangers

Posted by VM1138 on 24 May 2012 - 07:25 AM

So does anyone think in their right kind that if/when the Devils win the Choice that Parise is going anywhere? he's been absolutely huge for them in the playoffs. I know they're having financial issues but they would need to do whatever they needed to in order to retain their captain and best player alongside Kovalchuk


I worry about this, too. He wanted to leave to go to a contender. Now the Devils are a contender. The Rangers, goons or not, need to take them out.


#2301937 Red Wings make offer to Damien Brunner

Posted by VM1138 on 17 May 2012 - 09:11 PM

Someone mentioned Hudler?They like him in Ottawa it seems.


I'd like to keep Hudler if possible. He DOES score, even if he's not a difference maker. And since our problem is lack of scoring depth, I'd rather keep him and just plug him back on the 3rd line where he's had most of his success.


#2301708 Red Wings make offer to Damien Brunner

Posted by VM1138 on 16 May 2012 - 08:46 PM

I'm all for it. These are pretty low-risk propositions. Brunnstrom could have been amazing, but he wasn't, so we dumped him in the AHL. Especially since he's a shooter, go for it, just don't hinge the success of the team on him.

He looks amazing, but then again, everyone does in highlight clips. And those defensemen looked pretty terrible, too. But if his first instinct is to shoot, we need him.


#2300593 Bettman wants to tout the "Original 12" now, haha

Posted by VM1138 on 10 May 2012 - 08:59 PM

Well...some respect has to go out to the second wave of teams like the Flyers, Blues and Sabres...but I hope this doesn't become a marketing gimmick. The Original 6 is elite and WAY older than the extra teams that make up the "Original 12."
