#2651773 Barclays CEO - Watch on your phone if you don't like obstructed vi

Posted by marcaractac on Yesterday, 09:58 PM

Right?  I just don't know how with all of our advances this could even happen, obviously ALL people will want to see ALL of the game.  The building cost 1.03 billion to build, this makes no sense


The building just straight up was not designed with hockey in mind. It's a basketball arena.

#2651375 Should the Red Wings Trade for Byfuglien?

Posted by marcaractac on 07 February 2016 - 12:24 PM

I don't want to give up our future for the guy, but come on- he's almost exactly what we need. He's a top pairing d-man that can provide offense and a net front presence on the power play, which are the things we've lacked most since lidstrom and holmstrom retired. If we have the cap space to re-sign him, even if it's for a couple years too many, I'd do it. A first, a second, and a prospect isn't much to give up for that... we have more mediocre defense prospects and good forward prospects than we have available roster space for going forward, and datsyuk is gone after next year.

 

The contract he gets will be 4 or 5 years to many, not a couple. People complain about some of the contracts on this team now. Just wait until you see what the opinion is on Buff's contract to be come 2020.

No. It would cost too much for a rental. And signing him to the kind of contract he will no doubt get would be great for 2 or 3 years, but then would become a cap nightmare. Let him become somebody else's mistake. 

The only circumstance I'd like to see him as a Wing is one that will never happen. And that would be the same kind of deal Green signed with us. 




#2651092 2016 Trade Deadline Thread

Blashill is a good coach and will likely be here for a long time. Assistant coach Firschweiler is the problem in my opinion. The power-play has been dreadful and something needs to change to get it going.


Gotta agree here. If the powerfully waw producing at even just an average level, this team would be winning a lot more games. The d and Mrazek are good for keeping opponents to two goals or less most nights. But with a dead pp this team just has little life most of the time.

The powerplay is a constant momentum killer for this team. Turn the powerplay around and I'd be willing to bet scoring five on five increases as well. Momentum/confidence goes a long way.

It's not a secret that many players would rather rest than play in the ASG.  My only point is that yesterday's games looked more physically taxing than prior All star games.  There was no hitting or shot blocking, but there was a lot of end to end action.  I can see the older players not wanting anything to do with that in the future.  

 

They also looked like they had a lot more fun than they have had in recent years. 

 

The key to keeping the game competitive is to have a few younger players like Larkin in the mix. These kids playing with veteran all-stars are gonna show up to play, which in turn gets the older guys going. Larkin was all over the ice last night. That type of thing is infectious.

It's annoying that the parameters of the speed run have changed. That will always be the asterisk to this victory. It's almost better to have Larkin come in second all-time under the same scenario and with no guise of doubt to argue from.


Should we nullify hardest shot records now to because the sticks have flex? It's a skills competition record. It is meaningless fun.
