#2368268 Mikael Samuelsson

Posted by clutchngrab on 13 March 2013 - 03:32 AM

Yeah, because who would want a right-handed scorer who could replace the likes of Abdelkader or Cleary? Surely nobody.

It's a sad day when we hail the second coming of Sammie as our savior over Abs and Cleary.  But that's where we are....




#2368108 Babs: " ....the players decide who plays, not me...."

"I go through this time and time again with the players, with the media, with everyone — the players decide who plays, not me. If you play good, you get to keep playing (and) if you don't …?"

 
 
LIAR...YOU'RE A LIAR.
 
Exhibit A: Dan Cleary
Exhibit B: Tomas Tatar
 
There is so much contradiction in that sentence, I want to throw up.

If only another Oiler had been there to provide a little "subtle interference" so Carcillo couldn't have taken that run at Yakupov...




#2359489 Mursak on waivers

Posted by MacAttack25 on 22 February 2013 - 02:42 PM

The exact same thing happened when Holland had to waive Quincey to keep Ericsson.  People wept tears of blood and whipped themselves in the street.  For the next two seasons we all heard how Holland made a huge mistake and he had to get Q back.  When Kenny brings back the Q we all see how much worse he is than Ericsson and we're glad big-E stuck with the team.

 

My memory might be fuzzy, but I don't think Quincey had anything to do with Ericsson. I think Quincey was waived to keep Chelios and Meech. Quincey was waived at the beginning of the 2008-2009 season, Big E started in Grand Rapids that year if I'm not mistaken.

no wonder datsyuk wants to go back to russia.
 
can't blame him.

 

Remember when Kenny was kicking Alex Semin's tires?

 

Cool....

#2295384 Who do you blame for this unsuccessfully playoff run

Posted by Doc Holliday on 21 April 2012 - 05:10 PM

I liked that I got negged for saying that the blame shouldn't be dumped on just one person, that everyone involved played a part in us getting bounced out in the first round. I wasn't aware that was verboten around these parts.


How many times are you going to complain about getting negged?

As someone who has been here since the rep system was put in place, you should know how meaningless it is.

The whole team.

You win as a team, you lose as a team.

this has to be some sick joke.


#2236795 Turris speculation

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 December 2011 - 07:33 PM

Hudler is on pace to basically be the player we wanted him to be last season. I don't get all the complaining about him. I didn't calculate the math exactly, but isn't he on pace for 55-65ish points?


Because he's horribly inconsistent. For every 10 games where he puts up points, he goes 10 more where he isn't even visible on the ice.

He doesn't bring it every night. His inconsistencies have been even more pathetic in the last few playoffs he's played in.


#2236713 Turris speculation

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 17 December 2011 - 03:20 PM

I agree with some people about him taking Hudler's spot. No offense. Just not a big Hudler fan. Trying him out for a few couldn't hurt.


"No offense" is right.

That's why Hudler should be moved.


#2236694 Turris speculation

Posted by BryceWings on 17 December 2011 - 02:05 PM

Whatever you say dude. You can say whatever you want. Grass is greener and whatever. But even you know Hudler is meh. But go ahead.



Trading Hudler for Turris is not "trying him out for a few." It's receiving Turris's contract and losing Hudler. And it's not going to happen, because the league won't allow the Coyotes to accept any additional cap hit.

And your post is an amazingly pristine example of grass-is-greener syndrome.



And you're finding every reason to give a free pass to someone who has absolutely no history of success in the NHL---and who has a terrible, terrible attitude.



This is a giant assumption with no actual basis in fact. Being selected very high in the draft does NOT, in any way, guarantee one success in the NHL. Many high draft picks have gone on to be mediocre players or have failed to make it in the NHL.

Anyway, Turris's potential to be a locker-room cancer and a problem for the organization almost certainly disqualifies him in Holland's mind.




#2236693 Mike Babcock praises Red Wings' physical game

Posted by haroldsnepsts on 17 December 2011 - 02:03 PM

Babcock gets it.

It seems when this team is losing (which isnt often now but in the past) they continually try to keep skilling their way around the rink even when it isnt working. WHich is very frustrating to watch.

I still think if this team had a bit tougher bottom 6 and replaced guys like Emmerton or Miller who try to do the skill thing and cant play physical very well at all (especially Emmerton)the wings would be better off. Its not impossible to find guys who can play hockey and be tough to play against. Its not about finding a Milan Lucic, but there are guys out there that could play as much as Miller and Emmerton and be just as effective while providing the ability to set a physical tone. Kenny should be looking at Gaustad, Moen and Prust this offseason.

There are other options and as much as people hate Tootoo, he has been playing great hockey and could be that physical spark Detroit needs.

Daniel Winnik or Cody Mcleod could be good as well.

I will say that the D is probably one of the more physical in the league actually and is pretty good in that regard now but the forwards need something. Any those guys above on the fourth line could help, or putting Shane Doan in the top 6 could as well.

I know I'm gonna take heat for suggesting Tootoo because I know how everyone feels about him but hes already got 13 points and plays a very physical game. He also hasnt done anything cheap this year. He hit Miller but he was driving to the net hard.

You got negged for a reasonable and well thought out post, which is ridiculous. I'm guessing because you think the Wings need to be more physical? or mentioned Tootoo?

I wouldn't ever want Tootoo on the Wings, but agree in general.

EDIT: -2 already LGW doesnt take long to disappoint. I'm assuming this is about what I said regarding Tootoo. Do any of you take the time to realize hes actually only 6 points off of what Abdelkader and Miller produced all of last season.

The guy seemed to really turn the corner as a player instead of just a goon out there but oh well, you guys think what you want haha
