#2367957 Nyquist called up, Tatar sent down

Posted by unsaddleddonald on 12 March 2013 - 10:58 AM

There's no denying that.  The problem is Tatar can be sent down without a risk of losing him where as Cleary and Abdelkader cannot.  Don't get me wrong, I'd prefer if Tatar wasnt sent down either but it is what it is.


For me, the way I see it shaking out is the lines I posted above, then when Fil comes back he can slot in with Zetterberg - Brunner, which pushes Abs down to the 3rd line. 

I definitely LOL'd when I read that.


I would LOVE to have Cleary claimed off waivers!

I like to think it's Babs' way of death-staring Holland.

Can we take a shot with the overripe Nyquist very soon? I don't think it would hurt to inject some actual skill into the top-six.

I told you guys this defense would right the ship eventually.


And to think of all those posters who panicked earlier this year and wanted all those ridiculous trade proposals.  

Hey man im the new girl......but nice call!!

I don't like this line either, but we are winning games.  I think Babcock wants defense to win games until we get Filpula, Samuelson, and Helm back.  Offensively, it isn't great, but they don't give up goals either.


We are 4-4-3 in our last 11 games. Take away the 8-goal trouncing we gave Luongo and the Nucks, and we're averaging just barely over 2 goals per game. If it wasn't for Howard coming around and heating up over the last stretch, we would be much, much worse off.


That line isn't producing, and we need it to. Period.

#2364653 if we can find a couple of power forwards.....

Posted by Bring Back The Bruise Bros on 04 March 2013 - 04:14 AM

He will drop the gloves with anyone.

You've got to be kidding. He's one of biggest spotpickers in the league. He's fought guys like Datsyuk, Rafalski, Jay McLement, Brent Burns, Derek Morris, and Gilbert Brule. Fought Stephane Robidas earlier in the season. Robidas has like 10 career fights and he's played over 800 games.

Scoring goals and occasionally smacking a finesse guy with your purse doesn't make you a power forward. Perry is a fraud. He's gifted with the puck, no doubt, but no way in hell is he a power forward.

I'm not just a fan of the Wings. So this isn't just blind hate for Perry. I watch all teams. Power forwards are guys like David Clarkson, Ryane Clowe, and Wayne Simmonds.

upcoming free agent PFs

Anthony Stewart


Perry is a sniper, not a power forward; Getzlaf is certainly not a power forward (any Anaheim fan would laugh to see that assignation given him); Jagr is not a power forward; Morrow is old and fragile; Penner is generally garbage; Antropov is a wuss; San Jose fans hate Clowe this season; Clarkson isn't going anywhere; Knuble is long since old and washed up; Bickell is not a power forward; and Stewart is not a power forward.


Horton is a decent option, assuming Boston lets him go.

Tuzzi for aggrevated assault  :lol: .  Sorry, couldn't help myself.  Love Tuzzi though.  


Flip for pistol whipping, but never taking the shot.


Helm for speeding.

#2359533 Tootoo

Posted by Hockeymom1960 on 22 February 2013 - 04:10 PM

I don't get why Tootoo is all of a sudden such a fan favorite.  We need hockey players on this team.  Not goons.  Goons don't help us when we can't score a goal of the Blue Jackets after the first five minutes.  Oh whoo he fights.  Great.  Let me know when fighting gets you goals. 


Obviously, you don't know the definition fo a goon.

The were a lot more variables in 09 than the lack of enforcers.  And even so it came so close they could just have easily have won the cup. 


Also you can't honestly tell me you would rather have Tootoo than Hossa. 


Why are you even comparing Tootoo to Hossa?

just picked this up from the library...an incredible inspirational story.


#2357202 No need to panic

Posted by b.shanafan14 on 18 February 2013 - 08:24 AM





"Our July 1st was really April 4th when we were able to lock up Filppula, Howard, and Cleary long-term. We really liked our team and thought that if it wasn't for injuries last season that prevented our team from really gelling, be would have made some serious noise. We'll wait and see for the next month how it plays out, but we like our squad now. We think the addition of *insert one-time second/third line winger with one high scoring season forever ago turned journeyman* really bolsters our secondary scoring, plays tough, is a good veteran presence for the (one or two) young players (who will see even less ice-time than said scrub acquisition), etc. etc."
