#2230926 Wings are soft as hell.

Posted by matemate on 29 November 2011 - 06:58 PM

There are plenty of players that we can pick up next year that will make us tougher to play against.

Aron Asham
Brandon Prust
Byron Bitz
Daniel Carcillo
Darrel Boyce
Matt Martin
Shawn Thornton
Sean Avery
Ryan Carter
Tim Jackman
Jim Slater
Joey Grabb
Philippe Dupuis

Barret Jackman
Alexi Yemelin
Theo Peckham
Mark Fistric
Korbinian Holzer
Mike Kommiserak
Boris Valabik

There is plenty of players that Holland can go out and replace Bert, Hudler, Miller, Emmerton and Holstrom etc. We need a change of 4th line. Usually 4th lines are big gritty guys that go out and crash and bang. We have a bunch of small soft guys that get manhandled like crazy.

Assuming Anaheim continues to fall:

To Detroit:

Bobby Ryan
Matt Beleskey

To Anaheim:

Todd Bertuzzi
Cory Emmerton
Jakub Kindl
Draft pick

May be overpayment, but we get a legit top line sniper in Bobby Ryan, and a young, speedy grinder with a nose for the net.

#2230031 11/25 GDT : Red Wings 3 at Bruins 2 (SO)

Would be nice to have a guy like Thornton on your 4th line, great skater, great forechecker, great fighter, great teammate, right-handed shot...

Oh my the wings got so physically dominated, you can't deny they were very lucky to come out with the W

I've never seen Ericsson play with any balls anyway. He'll be fine.

#2228373 Philadelphia Flyers Unveil Winter-Classic Jersey

Posted by Jedi on 21 November 2011 - 01:39 PM

I would find it really difficult to make a Winter Classic jersey for a team that never really changed theirs throughout history.

Exactly. Philly's jerseys have had very little change over the years, so finding a different look in the past is going to be hard to do. I'm at least glad that the rumors that it was going to be based off the old Philadelphia Quakers turned out to be incorrect...

I'm telling you though, the NHL needs to let them wear Cooperalls one last time...

He's out due to illness.

#2225369 Ryan Miller's opinion on Milan Lucic

Posted by newfy on 14 November 2011 - 05:35 PM

Shanny gives Macarthur 3 games or whatever it was for his tiny little bump on Abdelkader but a guy running a goalie in the head (hands came up) doesnt even warrant a fine?

Shanny did learn from Campbell I guess eh

#2225207 Will Stuart re-sign?

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 13 November 2011 - 08:56 PM

Well, it's all settled then.

Let's send this post to Holland for final approval.

Just title it "Powerplay as our enforcer", otherwise it goes right to the garbage.

#2222455 F*** YOU Player X

Posted by unsaddleddonald on 03 November 2011 - 09:16 PM

F*** YOU Filppula: seriously, how many times does the coaching staff have to tell you to shoot before you actually start shooting? you may be the most frustrating player on this team because of your reluctance to use your talent. (1 shot against Calgary)

F*** YOU Hudler: see above. you're upset you keep getting scratched? do what the coaches have told you to do since you showed up in the league......SHOOT (1 shot against CGY)

F*** YOU Franzen: you're a six foot monster who plays like a 5 foot nothin little girl. you have no excuse for not getting at least 10 shots per game. (00000000 shots against CGY)

F*** YOU Bertuzzi: we aren't impressed by your video game bull crap anymore. shoot the puck or get out. (2 shots against CGY)

F*** YOU Datsyuk (but only a little): there are still times when you don't shoot and i can't figure out why. you are on par in this league with players like Ovechkin and Crosby......but they wouldn't be caught dead with only 2 shots on net in a game. (2 shots against CGY)

Abdelkader: 4 shots
Cleary: 5 shots
White: 4 shots

Some guys get it....just not the right ones.....

#2222445 11/3 GDT: Flames 4 at Red Wings 1

Big difference between showing some emotion and getting pissed off with the wings

No, there isn't. If you're not furious with this team right now, then I question whether or not you're a "real fan". Just because you think it's hip to call yourself a fan and watch wings games doesn't make you a fan. Saying "Bummer, oh well, on to the next one!" when they're 5-5-1 is the mark of someone who doesn't give a s***. Real fans give a s***.

#2221939 NHL Trade Deadline Predictions

Posted by RusDRW on 03 November 2011 - 01:24 PM

We'll get someone like Cory Cross.

#2220400 why this season will not be different...

Posted by stinky fish taco on 31 October 2011 - 06:15 AM

I love this. No other team in the league would consider 2 second round losses failures! :)

except the capitals
and the penguins
and the canucks
and the sharks
and any other team that goes into those seasons as a legitimate cup contender
