THE KID LINE is NOT READY to EXCELL as a 2ND LINE.

Who's with me on this?

Yes, they can compete and hold their own, but they are still not ready to be counted on for scoring against 2nd pairing D, etc.

If they stay as a 2nd line, (ok, namely Tats and Shea) we will continue to experience a lot of one goal wins/losses.

Conversely, THE KID LINE will be an awesome 3rd line, providing energy, scoring, and all round "holy f***". They can push us over the top PROVIDED we get a legit 2c to slot between Franzen and NyQ, as Weiss was spossed to be.

We need to keep the 1st line together to continue their awesomeness (ZDA) and the Kid Line as 3rd to be awesome, and stick Helm in to hold the fort as 2c until...1) we get someone else, 2) Weiss gets his nads and mojo back, 3) Helm becomes the "Never saw this coming" story of the year.

Quite possibly for the same reason Abdelkader plays in the top 6.  
 
If you haven't noticed by now, Babcock likes to have a digger/forchecker on his top lines.
 
Helps to roll 4 lines.  This is nothing new.



Especially in the salary cap era. (Let me know if this comment actually needs explaination)


#2546457 Strong Penalty Killing, Lack of Scoring the Story of 2014 So Far

Posted by T.Low on 03 November 2014 - 05:03 PM

Boy, these guys don't know what they're talking about. Maybe they should watch some games before they comment
How are Nyquist, tatar, helm, Jurco, abdelkader, sheahan and Glendenning all the same type of player?
How is Nyquist not a scorer?
And Dekeyser is offensive? Haha




Well, atleast they made a good point about getting rid of Tatar for a guy who can come in and get 20-25 goals. I mean he only had 19 in 70 some games as a rookie, and only has 3 in 11 games so far which only projects out to...hmm, whaddya know, 20-25 in 82.

That first period was as amazing as any in recent history. That was a 2002/2008 period.

Two of last nights goals exemplified Babcocks thinking.

Helm with Datsyuk because his awesome puck retrieval skills: Tied the game with an awesome goal.

Tatar not ready for more ice time: his mark scored while he was indisciplined, opened the door for the loss of the game.
This team has a pretty flat finish to it: not a makeup that can score consistently.

Tatar Sheahan Jurco, while a really cool line that we all love, obviously cannot/have not scored as a 2nd line. The only way they produce is as a 3 rd line.

They need to booster their rooster with Weiss and Kindl.


And if they're still feeling a little dreary, we could always send them Cleary.


#2544200 future captains?

Posted by T.Low on 24 October 2014 - 11:12 AM

C - Nasty
A - Larkin
A - DDK
Nasty oozes leadership. He's been a C every where he's been.
Scouts have already said Larkin is the type of player that will wear a letter in the nhl.
DDK is just a hunch cause he's a stud.



Wow, I'm so not hip. Is that NastyQuist or NastySil?


#2543379 Weiss

Posted by T.Low on 22 October 2014 - 10:13 AM

Weiss isn't our savior





He was signed to be a key piece, of that there is no argument.

Filppula wanted out and I think TB will regret that deal. He's never had 2 back to back healthy productive seasons.




Struggling so far. 5 pts in 7 games, OT winner last night.

Aren't they getting Stevie Y and both Bowmans, too, to complete the Mgt Team?


#2540282 Datsyuk to play Thursday? Weiss to be a healthy scratch?

Posted by T.Low on 12 October 2014 - 04:58 AM

You are completely right. People love to praise the Kings, and I will be the first to admit they have done one hell of a job with that franchise. But, what people forget is that to get there and get those picks you listed, they didn't make the playoffs from 2002-2010. If I told you the Wings would be elite, but to do so we would be out of the playoff picture until 2022, I think most people would pass.



Yet, on hfb the Kings fans are already complaining about lack of prospects...

Babcock said no lineup changes tonight.



A perfect quote for Flashy's GDT. (He has changed the way I look at posts forever!)


What's up with Anaheim letting in 6 Penguin goals? Anybody see the game? Does it mean we may be good for three?

As in, the bs. It's an old one, maybe you young guys don't know it.


#2538954 Kindl on the block

Posted by T.Low on 07 October 2014 - 06:47 PM

I remember a rather extensive period of time here when half the people on this forum were as high or higher for Kindl as they seem to now be for Ouellet. But heading to the NHL and having to face that level of competition and pressure while continuing to grow is no easy task. I hope Ouellet works out a lot better, and he very well could and probably should, but I won't be shocked if he doesn't. We've seen days like this before, and we'll see them again. Prospects, no matter how promising, are just prospects until they prove they can really do it at the NHL level. You just can't put all your faith in them unless you're fine getting burnt at least half the time if not more.




And according to the scouting department, Anderssen has better hands than Franzen...


#2538921 Kindl on the block

Peter and Bobby's older brother. Groovy.




Oh no you dittn't!
