#2649445 Joakim Andesson on Waivers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 22 January 2016 - 12:57 PM

Red Wings waive Joakim Andersson https://t.co/GnzcIRv2u3

 

per George as well...wonder if something is brewing? You think our former coach will claim him? Is it time for some excitement around here? Get ready guys, I think Holland is going to have something for us!!

 

I'm not falling for that one again.

#2649387 2016 Trade Deadline Thread

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 January 2016 - 06:31 PM

Not sure how people still blame Yzerman for Martin St. Louis leaving.  That guy whined for not being selected to Team Canada (hardly a team anyone can join) and then asked to be moved because his ego was bruised.    


Well - for what it's worth the team has been playing better overall since he became GM (new owner helps too), and last year they were in the Cup finals.

 

I honestly believe Stevie Y is 'old school' - as in - you shut your mouth, and do as you're told, and don't ***** about your situation which was the norm back when he played...Players today have a much different view, and guys like Drouin feel entitled so Stevie feels he needs to be put in his place.

 

St.Louis had a beef with Stevie when he was the GM of Team Canada (to me that's just ego issues)...Stamkos on the other hand apparently has issues with the head coach Jon Cooper, and 9 times outta 10 - the GM will side with the coach so...

 

I wouldn't if it means losing Stamkos.  Cooper did get them to the Finals last year, but coaches can be replaced.  You can't replace Stamkos.  




#2649386 Another Patrick Kane case incoming..?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 21 January 2016 - 06:28 PM

Fans in Philly apparently chanted 'No means No' when Kane was on the ice...Hopefully he'll get the same treatment from around the league, and better yet - maybe an opponent runs Kane hard into the boards.

 

Maybe John Scott will run him during the ASG and become even more popular among fans.

I'm guessing he's not winning the Lady Byng trophy anytime soon.

Am I the only one that's been way disappointed in Green's play?  Like, I could kinda maybe stomach all the defensive lapses and him regularly getting walked like a dog if he was scoring goals or breathing some life into the powerplay.  And I could kinda maybe stomach the ack of goals and powerplay points from the guy that was supposed to be our go-to offensive defensman if he was at least solid defensively.  But he's really struggling on both sides of the puck lately.

 

He's always been bad defensively, but now he's not producing offensively either.  Washington knew what they were doing when they let him walk.  




#2649333 Brian McGrattan

Funny reading all the jokes on this thread about how tough Brian is from earlier in the summer and now this guy will be the reason fighting in hockey is gone.

 

He would beat Maggio 8 out of 10 times.  That could happen to any enforcer.  He just got careless and was caught.  

 

Fighting will never be gone in minor league hockey.  They need it to draw crowds.  


Jordin Tootoo

 

I wish we had a guy like that on our 4th line.

I knew Tkachuk was fat, but not that fat!

We're not playing that bad.  Dominating the faceoff circle pretty well.

 

Problem is, we are terrible on the powerplay and don't have enough finishers.  Not having Tatar hurts also.

Our needs are so clear: We need a sniper. Even I'm getting tired of me saying this.

 

Sniper Wolf or Quiet?

The Blues can dress 4 defensemen tonight and they'd still be OK.  Our milksopian lineup is not going to wear any defense corps down.

Wait, Chris Benoit plays for the Blues?    :ninja:

Ouch.

 

Why couldn't this happen to Roman Reigns instead?

Getting him back will be our big deadline acquisition.   :lol:

I blame Gary Bettman for this loss.  And Brendan Smith.

when Datsyuk passed the puck back I thought, "what is he doing who is he passing to? oh, yeah Mrazek to Kronwall and we have a scoring chance 

 

That looked like a soccer play.  Don't see a pass back to the goalie from center ice too often.
