God we suck at fighting.

Please trade Hudler for an enforcer Kenny!

Too be honest Salei reminds me a lot of Lilja's first year here.

In Lilja's first year he looked uncomfortable with the system and for every great play he made he matched it up with a bone-head error. The longer Lilja was here the more solid his play and the less bone-headed errors he made.

When I see Salei I see a guy a lot like Lilja. Very solid defensively at times but also prone to be in the wrong place frequently.

Except Salei hasn't won a fight yet.

#2075308 How stupid is this KHL-team?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 10 December 2010 - 07:03 PM

I find it ironic that you would rather a hockey team fight than actually focus on playing hockey.

I'm sure they actually played a game after that.

I honestly think the defense was as good as it could have been tonight.

The offense was terribly underwhelming, however. No idea why Franzen called for a pass through 3 King players. That was stupid.

That's what I meant.

Tonight, the offense played like crap all game. They usually play better when Howard is in net, granted Ozzie rarely plays anymore.

But when he does, the team doesn't fully show up.

Ozzie will never get 400 wins, because this team plays like crap in front of him.

#2073218 Wings third jersey idea

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 December 2010 - 08:03 PM

They wear the blue and gold during the Olympics.

That's about as close as you get to a Wings 3rd jersey.

#2073102 Which #26 would you rather have?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 December 2010 - 01:22 PM

That's a tough choice because the game is so different now. Hudler isn't fleet of foot by any means but he's far more suited to today's game than the other two. My first instinct was to pick Kocur since he'd be my all time favourite #26 to wear the winged wheel, but if we're talking about NHL hockey in 2010 I have to pick the guy who plays a style suited to winning in today's NHL.

You mean a soft euro who is overpaid, plays lazy along the boards, gets knocked off the puck and doesn't go to the net?

Yeah, Hudler is so good for our winning style. Where would we be without him? :thumbup:

#2072996 Shane Doan at the trade deadline = 2011 Stanley Cup

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 04 December 2010 - 01:39 AM

Doan is not playing all that great to say the least.

He doesn't have much of a future either.

#2070882 Kyle Quincey

He's sucked this season, but how about getting facts straight?

He was out 16 days with CONCUSSION.

Crymson doesn't believe that being out with an injury excuses a player from not scoring points while he's injured.

Holland and Babcock expected a better turnout from Hudler.

Using hindsight to justify why we should have done A instead of B is ridiculous. I don't see how adding either of those players would have improved our team a great deal anyways. It's not like either of them is storming the trenches with solid play.

Depends on what your definition of solid play is. I just wanted a few grinders on the team instead of skilled players who would be put in situations they're not comfortable with, such as playing on the 3rd line.

Granted, Modano and Hudler have gotten more than enough playing time imo, but they just don't look like good fits right now with the Wings. A solid 4th liner would have been a good fit and would have allowed someone like Helm or Abby to play on the 3rd line with Cleary and get more playing time, which both those guys deserve.

Haha sneaky GMR :cool:

Imagine if they put the money on Asham or similar player :hehe:

It's not the best player on the team that got injured but as one said earlier, abdelkaders faceoffs are a bit weak for him to center the third line

But we couldn't sign Asham or Neil, because we spent too much money on Hudler.

These both look like failed signings right now. Maybe something will change around playoff time, but I still feel that our money would have been better served elsewhere.

#2068585 Chelios might sign for Vitiaz Tjechov

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 November 2010 - 08:29 PM

If this is true, then Chelios has passed Ric Flair as the most over the hill athlete in sports history.

What exact penalty are the flames fans whining about?

Probably the last 20 years of their pathetic franchise (minus the fluke run in 2004).

Hudler sucks.

"What, you want me to crash the net when there's a rebound? No, thanks. I'd rather just coast towards the net and watch."

Dude, we've won like 5 of our last 6 games.

Geez, some people here just can't be satisfied with anything.
