How does the potential of getting Moen (perhaps) and Morrow (yes please) turn into an enforcer/fighting thread?

I think goon and pansy alike could appreciate a Brendan Morrow, or even a Travis Moen being on the Red Wings.


Who are you calling a pansy?

Everything Abdelkader can provide? Abdelkader is a much better skater, much better offensive skills(althought Abdelkader has struggled offensive since making the switch to center but is still better than Moen) and is much younger has better F/O Percentage than 36% for Moen last year compared to Abdelkader 52%, and 40% this year to Abdelkader's 51%. Hell Moen doesn't really even take faceoffs for Montreal anymore(only 12 this year), Abdelkader has 97 hits compared to Moen's 73 and Moen gets about 4:00 Minutes more a game.

I like Moen he's a solid player, but he's not better than Abdelkader just because he has a crappy talent at punching people, that's for boxing not hockey.


Who's your favorite figure skater? I've always wanted to know.

#2250505 The SuperSkills competition is an embarrassment

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 January 2012 - 10:21 PM

I didn't like how they broke up the fastest skater either. Terrible. How can you classify that as a fastest skater? Is the fastest runner in track asked to run tires like in boot camp? Give me a break.

The fastest skater event should be exactly like they had it before. It should be a full out lap or even 2 laps...tonight the event was too choppy. Players didn't even have enough room to get to full speed.


Especially when goalies are doing the fastest skater. Then you know it's a joke.

The good news is there aren't enough Blue Jackets fans to stuff the ballots and vote 4 or 5 of their players into the game.


#2250456 Calgary trades Brendan Morrison to the Hawks

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 28 January 2012 - 01:32 PM

The Hawks will be our biggest competitor during the trade deadline. Another original 6 team, with a younger core and a great future in terms of Cup contention.

Holland will have to be brash to outwit their GM.


#2250369 Who Could be Dealt at the Deadline?

Unless Holland gets an offer he simply can't rightfully refuse, I don't see him shipping out Filppula.

#2250357 Who Could be Dealt at the Deadline?

No one mentioned Ericsson.

Probably because no one would take him for that contract.


#2250269 Datsyuk No 1 Pick for All Star

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 27 January 2012 - 01:10 PM

Seriously??

Gaborik, Iginla, Kessel, Seguin, or how about Corey Perry?? I hope they do put Datsyuk and Perry on the same line, that would be interesting :!:


Can't you wait till this year's playoffs?

What would be the harm in putting Ericsson through waivers?


It would mean Holland admitting that he f***ed up.

There's no telling what could have happened in this game if Ericsson didn't kill the comeback.

That's the last straw. Time to trade him.

Does he post lineup suggestions here too?


I can tell you're new. :hehe:

Hudler is showing everyone who should wear the C when Lidstrom retires.

Hudler should have thrown his gloves in the air and skated to the other side of the ice in ecstasy, a la Patrick Kane in the 2010 Finals.

:cool:

So much for teams getting excited about original 6 games.

The only Wing showing any passion is Babcock.

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 25 January 2012 - 08:54 PM

Uh oh! The Wings are being blown out in a single game! Let the immensely-negative extrapolations begin! Onward with the doomsaying!

Relax, dude.


I think you should wait till Nightfall gets here.

This is too much for you to handle by yourself.
