#2375316 Ray Shero making the NHL his *****

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 March 2013 - 05:16 PM

Go root for the Pens then

 

Yeah, go root for a team that actually wants to win Stanley Cups.  




#2375315 Iginla Traded to Pittsburgh

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 March 2013 - 05:14 PM

Why can't Holland trade two prospects no one has ever heard of and a 1st round pick (which is effectively a 2nd for the Pens), for Jarome Iginla?

 

I guess they have a GM that actually makes moves, instead of offering contracts to former castoffs.  




#2374767 Mikael Samuelsson

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 27 March 2013 - 09:01 PM

So sorry, but...

 

2/17/2013  Missed 12 games (groin).
3/30/2012  Missed 1 game (lower body injury).
1/05/2012  Missed 5 games (back injury).
12/08/2011  Missed 22 games (groin).
6/15/2011  Missed the last 13 playoff games (left leg injury).
4/17/2011  Missed 1 game (illness).
4/05/2011  Missed 6 games (lower body injury).
12/11/2010  Missed 1 game (mild concussion).
4/04/2010  Missed 8 games (upper body injury).

 

Sure, you could call the broken finger a fluky thing, but it's not like he's been healthy before that.

 

Holland knew this (and Carlo CocaCola's past) and still made those signings.  

 

It's not like they came to the Wings for free either.  Terrible GM work.       




#2374511 Which NHLer is the....

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 26 March 2013 - 10:34 PM

Fake Phaneuf

Toughest Kesler

Clown Perron

Classiest Datsyuk

 

If Kesler is tough, then I'm Steve McQueen.  




#2373865 Semin re-signs with Carolina: 5 years, $35 million ($7M/yr)

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 March 2013 - 07:04 PM

OMG, overpayment!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

 

:hehe:   Sorry, I had to say LGW favorite phrase when another team makes "any" signing.  




#2373496 Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 March 2013 - 10:24 PM

If the prospects include Tatar and Nyquist, I'm not interested.
 
Where's Mursak when you need him? 

 
Of course it would.
 
You think they want McCollum and Ferraro or something?  


#2373474 Iginla may/may not have added Detroit to his trade list

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 March 2013 - 10:12 PM

Asking price is being reported as 2 prospects AND a pick. 

 

Not sure if I'm interested if we have to give up Nyquist/Tatar + another prospect. 

 

Does Samuelsson count as a prospect?  

 

:lol:




#2373464 10/24 GDT : Red Wings 2 at Ducks 1

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 March 2013 - 10:08 PM

Agreed. Not sure the cost is worth it for an aging Iginla, even with the intrigue of Datsyuk as a linemate.

 

I will still likely put together some unrealistic proposals in the upcoming "Iginla thread".  I welcome others to do the same.  




#2373462 Calle Jarnkrok to play for GR Griffins

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 March 2013 - 10:06 PM

Happy to hear it. Any experience he can get NOW will only help him out later, make him more ready when training camp starts. 

 

Hoping to see Järnkrok, Tatar and Nyquist all with the Wings next season. 

 

Nyquist and Jarnkrok will need to beef up a little.  

 

Tatar should already be a regular since he plays a grittier game than those two.  




#2373454 Calle Jarnkrok to play for GR Griffins

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 24 March 2013 - 10:01 PM

Do we really need another small Euro who will be lucky not to get knocked off the puck in the NHL?

 

 

I know he has good upside, but you can only have so many similar players in the lineup at the same time.  

 

I just hope they find some big wingers if they plan on calling him up in the next year or so.  And don't put him on the 4th line like they do with Nyquist and others from GR.

:glare:    Boy, I wish people started a 10 page thread every time I got laid off.

How about the Belle Tire girl/woman?  
 
She must know a lot about hockey.  In any case, players would be less likely to turn her down for interviews and conversations during the game.


#2372679 If we win next 6 games, expect a trade

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 March 2013 - 02:11 PM

He didn't say we had to win them all, he said the next six games will likely determine whether we're in the playoffs or not, and if we are then there would be a trade.  His exact words were something like, "we need to win some games before trading makes any sense" or something to that effect.

 
We're likely to be around .500 in the next 6 games, just like the whole season.
 
Whether we make the playoffs will depend on the last two or three games, imo.  

That shouldn't decide whether Holland does or doesn't make a trade to improve this team's future.


#2372667 If we win next 6 games, expect a trade

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 23 March 2013 - 01:44 PM

:huh:

 

So we have to win the next 6 games in order to see a trade?

That sucks.  Can't replace his goofiness.

 

I think Cleary should take his job starting next game.
