#2618761 Retire Sergei Fedorovís Jersey Immediately

Posted by marcaractac on 02 July 2015 - 04:24 PM

It seems like the hall of fame inductance has really boosted Feds case. I think this solidifies #13. Not so sure about #40 yet. I hope Z ends up breaking Yzerman's franchise record for playoff goals. He needs 15 more. That would be a huge accomplishment among other things he's got going.  

 

I can't imagine a word where one euro twin is in the rafter without the other. Both are very special players and have been equally important to this team for many years. 

 

I completely agree about it solidifying #13, and I don't see z not breaking that record, and when he does you almost have to retire #41 too...
The c on his sweater helps his case as well.

 

The disney.com love is strong  :lol:

Posted by marcaractac on 01 July 2015 - 03:34 PM

Got ya covered!

 

Deal isn't quite done, but Brad Richards and the Red Wings are working on a 1 yr deal.

So your position is that Crosby is elite, and might improve Kessel's play, but then again might not? Bold. 

 

 

My position is that it's very likely he does make Kessel better, but that s*** happens and there is no such thing as a sure thing. Common sense, really. What is life like in your everything is a 100% sure thing fantasty land?

I like richards on a one year deal. Gives us certainty for a second line center, and a year for larkin/sheahan to grow into that role




#2618201 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

Posted by marcaractac on 01 July 2015 - 03:14 PM

Maybe Quincey gets moved during the season? There is always a team that's completely decimated by injury early on in the season. Don't think he gets resigned anyways

 

Would much rather keep Q over E. 




#2618170 Red Wings sign D Mike Green (3-years, $18-million)

This move, along with a new coach will completely change the makeup of our defense. A lot more puck moving skill, ability for a much more up tempo game, a lot more d jumping into the rush. All while still having guys capable of being responsible in their own end. I'm pumped that the hopes and dreams of getting Franson will be put to rest.

I like how everybody on LGW thinks they are 100% right, but never takes a bet.  The point of contention is that I don't think Crosby will significantly impact Kessel's goal scoring.  They do.  Easy enough to see who's right, who's wrong, and who's just arguing for the sake of it. 

 

To be fair, nobody on this site falls in the "i'm always right" category more then you. 

 

Crosby will make Kessel better. That's what great players do. Hockey 101.

Higher cap hit for short term. Good contract. 




#2618131 Phil Kessel Traded to Penguins

Posted by marcaractac on 01 July 2015 - 02:52 PM

 

Crosby is one of the best players in the world, and certainly the best center Kunitz ever played with, and in only one, outlier, year did he significantly improve Kunitz' goal total.  Every other year in Pittsburgh Kunitz has been exactly what he was emerging into in Anaheim, a mid 20s goal scorer. 

 

Likewise, Pavel Datsyuk is by far the best center Hossa ever played with, and he made Hossa a 40 goal scorer...something that Hossa had done four times before ever playing with Datsyuk.  Hell, he didn't even reach his goal scoring zenith with Datsyuk feeding him.  At least you could argue that Crosby and Kunitz did that together (albeit an outlier).  Hossa was a BETTER goal scorer without Datsyuk. 

 

But I'll make it easier.  I'll bet you $100 dollars, to a charity of your choice, if Crosby significantly improves Kessel's goal scoring (since that was the original point of debate).  Since Kessel is already one of the best goal scorers in the league, and since Crosby is one of the best centers in the league, a "significant improvement" in Kessel's goal scoring should equate to him ending the season top three in goal scoring and/or scoring 50 goals. 

 

Deal?

 

I like how you always try to use betting $100 to win arguments.

Landing Shattenkirk would be best case scenario, but I'd definitely rather see Holland sign Green over Franson any day of the week. 




#2617773 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by marcaractac on 30 June 2015 - 09:55 PM

So pissed about this entire Weiss situation. Holland screwed up by signing him over Filppula (yeah yeah I know I still miss him), Babcock managed him like s*** two years in a row and Holland should have just bought him out when he had the chance to do it without penalty.

 

It wasn't Holland who screwed up by signing Weiss over Filppula. Filppula wanted to go elsewhere. Weiss was signed because we were losing Flip, not because Holland chose Weiss over him. 




#2617739 Saad traded to Columbus

Jackets are going to be LA East next year. They are huge everywhere!

 

Huge everywhere and will finish out of the playoffs? I can accept that  :ninja:




#2617730 Dougie hamilton to calgary

Posted by marcaractac on 30 June 2015 - 08:08 PM

 

He didn't want to stay in Boston, that's why.

 

Even if this were 100% true, they made no effort to start a bidding war for him. There are GM's out there who didn't even know he was on the market. Lousy trade no matter how you look at it. 




#2617656 Weiss bought out (confirmed)

Posted by marcaractac on 30 June 2015 - 06:20 PM

Buying him out now instead of next year makes it feel like they want Larkin in the NHL now. I'm all for it.


#2617041 2015 Draft

Posted by marcaractac on 27 June 2015 - 04:49 PM

Wait until the Wings trade one of these picks for a veteran at the deadline. You'll care then.

 

We will at that time never hear the end of it  :lol:
