#2548571 Ranking Wings Players by Draft Order

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 11 November 2014 - 02:24 PM

I wonder how many other teams' two best players were picked so low?  In many ways, other teams have changed where and how they scout because of Datsyuk and Zetterberg.  




#2548565 Stars trade Sergei Gonchar for Travis Moen from MTL

LOL.  Trading for a tough guy is certainly not something Nill picked up from Holland.

Quincey - 132nd overall

Helm - 132nd overall

Don't even joke about it.   Holland might hear you. 

 

He was pretty good in the shootouts though. 

 

Is there a rule about someone from the pressbox coming down to participate in the shootout? 

 

Who do we have in our pressbox?  Hammer hands Draper?  


I will say, though, that Danny Cleary scored 50 goals in juniors.  It's worth giving him a shot.  




#2547533 Gustavsson injured

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 November 2014 - 11:37 PM

He gets himself hurt because of his poor mechanics as a goalie.

If Gus doesn't want to tear groins anymore, maybe he needs to work on his rebound control.  He's too wild out there.  

 

Yes, being wild can result in making saves that look fantastic at times (see Hasek and Tim Thomas), but he's not consistently good enough to get away with it.

These refs were terrible calling that a penalty.  The announcers were right earlier about human error and how tough it is to be a ref.  However, not calling the game concistently is entirely on the refs.  They saw that little ***** boy St. Louis dive, and didn't call it.  No human error there.

That prima donna backstabing punk dove.  




#2547431 GDT 11/5/14--Wings @ Rangers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 November 2014 - 10:42 PM

Holy crap.  This team has become good with the goalie pulled.  Never remember seeing that before.  




#2547379 GDT 11/5/14--Wings @ Rangers

Franzen doing some enforcing.  About time he uses his size for something useful.

Cleary just destroyed that Norwegian milksop.  




#2547248 GDT 11/5/14--Wings @ Rangers

Nothing that happened after that goal counted.
Including another goal.

But what about a penalty?

 

A 5 minute major no less.  




#2547200 GDT 11/5/14--Wings @ Rangers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 November 2014 - 09:34 PM

We should let them score on purpose, just to piss of the fans.  




#2547143 GDT 11/5/14--Wings @ Rangers

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 05 November 2014 - 09:19 PM

That should do it.

Kindl and Lashoff are bums. There's no way Ouellet is worse.

 

Anyone know what Jason Woolley is up to these days?  




#2546415 What happened to Calle Jarnkrok?

Posted by GMRwings1983 on 03 November 2014 - 01:46 PM

Legwand was put on a 4th line with talentless jobbers.  Still don't understand why make that move and not give him more icetime.  We had injuries at the time, but it could have been handled differently. 

 

Then again, this is the same franchise that brought Cleary back for another season.  Holland has gone mad like Henry VIII and no one higher up can do squat about it.
