#2527509 2014 Offseason League Signings and Trades

Posted by T.Low on 01 July 2014 - 03:21 AM

I'm still holding out for Kesler, even though he's in Anaheim. Perseverance.


Edit: Wife just tells me Denial ain't just a River in Africa. Hmm, yeah, so? What's your point?

Are you guys assuming we are not going to re-sign alfie? Just curious if he has made a decision not to play another year?


we've got to sign Alfie: I just traded away Franzen and Tatar in the Joe Thornton thread!

LOL you think Franzen Weiss and Anderson have value? Lol HAGAGAHAHA post of the year right there.



:-) believing is the key to sales ( and in this case, negotiation) I'm such a good salesman, every four years my boss sends me down to pick out whatever new truck I want.

You got to believe. :-)

So, if we trade for Thornton does that mean Weiss goes to the wing?  And if so, does that mean one of Franzen or Nyquist becomes the top line winger?  And how does re-signing Alfie influence this?
 
Is there actually a plan or are we just grasping at straws here?




No, because, as I posted earlier, Weiss and Andy in package for Kesler to play on Datsyuks wing.

Tatar in a package for Dumbo Jumbo.

Kesler Datsyuk Franzen

Zetterberg Thorny Nyquist

Jurco Sheahan Pulkinen

Miller Glendening Abdelskater




It can happen, and it will.

Ok...I'm officially ready for July 1, and beyond.


#2524178 Dan Cleary may return...sigh

Posted by T.Low on 17 June 2014 - 09:51 AM

Verbal agreement? Clearly did not/cannot hold up his end of the deal. Agreement has been broken, so no dishonor done in not signing him.

Realistically, if we don't get a forward of Kesler's caliber, and a top 2 Dman, D and Z won't win another cup.


#2522316 Jeff Blashill close to signing an extension... Babcock talks starting

Posted by T.Low on 01 June 2014 - 01:42 PM

Babcock will go two more years in Detroit, then he will replace Red Berensen at Michigan, and Blashill will take over the Wings.


#2521668 Seattle looking to join NHL?

Posted by T.Low on 24 May 2014 - 09:44 PM

Exactly an expansion "draft" is bad for every team involved and doesn't do the new ones any favors they are basically getting leftovers and players who don't want to be there in the first place.
 
Seattle may be a big market but are they a big hockey market where the owners are willing to invest into an NHL club WITHOUT the NBA being #1 priority ? Also I'm starting to question the BOG more and more, guys like Dolan, Mr. I, Pegula should be part of it.
 
I mean first the sellout to a piss poor quality product = sportsnet for 12 years and now favoring Seattle over Quebec ? Something doesn't add up
 
Also Seattle is very close to Vancouver I guess most NHL fans there are already fans of the Canucks.

It can take 3 hrs to get from Seattle to Rogers Place in Vancouver. Most Seattle sports fans know that Todd Bertuzzi did a bad thing to that one guy and now he's not allowed back in the country, and they'd be really hard pressed to name another Canuck.

Probably as many Red Wing, Boston, and now Chicago fans as Canucklehead fans.

Seattle is a bandwagon market. Right now, the Seahawks and Sounders soccer are hot, but Husky football and Mariners baseball season tickets are easy to get great seats.

Sounders fans march across the city to the games, singing together, with other fans coming out of the pubs to job with them, just like in Europe. They meet with the team owner, comedian Drew Cary, at big outside gatherings in the city, and they tell him how they as fans want to participate in the whole scheme of Sounders Soccer and he actually responds quite favorably. They usually sellout the lower bowl, like 47,000 seats or something. That's what Bettman ought to be studying in Seattle.

Check it out.

#2520043 WCSF : (7) Minnesota vs. (5) Chicago Blackhawks

Posted by T.Low on 11 May 2014 - 08:06 PM

I see this guy wearing a Blackhawks Stanley Cup Champions hat at the airport so I ask him if they'll get by the Kings and he says, "We just did!".

So, I politely say, "No, I said Los Angeles, the Kings."

"Yeah, we beat em and now we're beating Minnesota".

" No, you beat the St Louis Blues. The beer on the bandwagon so good that the hockey's not so relevant, eh?"

He didn't get that either.

True story.


#2514887 Classy move by Tootoo.

Way to go Toots.

I'll bet a day doesn't go by without him thinking about his brother.


#2514736 ECQF - Game 4 - Bruins 3 at Red Wings 2 (F/OT)

Posted by T.Low on 24 April 2014 - 03:21 PM

I don't care what happens... Just win this damn game. So glad Z is in :)
Where the heck is Ericsson





Drs are still fishing around inside his finger for the rest of the 100 bone fragments it shattered into. Need all the parts before you can rebuild it.

If we hear a TOD-BER-TUZZI chant tonight, then it was the right decision.




He's got to be thinking this could indeed be his last game ever. He'll bring it.


#2509851 Gus & Tatar almost traded to Calgary per McKenzie

Posted by T.Low on 15 April 2014 - 05:08 PM

One the own hand, good to know he actually went after Bouwmeester. On the other hand, YEEOW that was a close one!


#2508508 Do Maple Leaf fans deserve better?

Posted by T.Low on 10 April 2014 - 06:25 PM

Yeah, after reading all the hateful comments about our 23 years of awesomeness!!!!!! from all the butthurt Leafs fan on tsn and Facebook, I'm going to have to reform my opinion of their miserable fanbase a bit and say that I hope they continue to suck for all eternity.



Damn, dude, well said!
