#2252889 Who Could be Dealt at the Deadline?

Posted by T.Low on 05 February 2012 - 04:03 PM

The Bulin Wall would be nice, but that is an expensive back-up. But it sure would solidify the goal-tending corps for the playoffs...at what price though? Conklin plus what?

I agree, he'd make a great backup but we don't want to have that kind of cap space sitting with a clip board all the time.

Is Hasek still playing somewhere? :huh:

Again, what more do you want for a player making the minimum, causes no trouble not playing every night, and can be used in every situation and at least be counted on not to make a mistake. The other night when he coughed the puck up and lost a goal, he worked his ass off and got it back.

Miller will not yield anything better in trade then what we already have in Miller.

I am sorry but people who don't get the idea of value in players don't understand how to build a winner.

I am sure you would rather have someone on the team that will drop the gloves or try for a big hit, and while doing this is an anchor to an entire line, and costs us games. We don't need goons, we need hustle and heart. Right now Miller is in the top half of our team in that yet gets paid peanuts. Emmerton and Eaves both deserve the boot before Miller.

Well put.

I was luke warm on Miller, seeing his main assets as being a character, depth grinder, but now I am totally rooting for the guy. Hard worker, pays the price to get to the dirty areas and scores the ugly goals that still count as much as a Datsyukian Deke.

#2251711 How open would you be to trading Hank?

Posted by T.Low on 03 February 2012 - 02:58 AM

Someone bump this thread during the playoffs, it'll be funny :hehe:

On the side note, I wouldn't trade him. The Wings have invested a lot in him since he entered the league and they're not really one of those teams that go about trading their players when they're going through slumps. He may not seem like it to some at the moment, but I can assure you that he'll find his game sometime soon in the near future :thumbup:

Which brings up a good point: We're #1 in the league while our star player is in a slump season.

You know my brother and I have been watching him play all year, and there is something seriously wrong with him. I get scoring droughts and all, but he is making bad passes, getting knocked off the puck easy and not scoring as well.

I know he is still playing great d against the other top forwards, but we need snipers in a bad way. If this is a result of his ongoing back problems you have to consider trading him. Just my opinion.

Funny what different people see. Not calling you out, but all I see is how strong he is on the puck, and his good passes. His shot looks tired and handcuffed, no doubt, but he still carries a lof of speed into the zone.

Not very open at all. Henrik Zetterberg has too much talent, too much heart, too much class, too much work ethic, and too much character to let go of. He is the epitome of what detroit Red WIng Hockey is all about.

Production is down this season. I may be a different answer if we were starting fresh and picking teams without him ever being a Wing before. But he has been an ideal fit for this organization, I'm proud to root for Hank, and I'm sticking with him.

Stuart is the kinda guy teams seek out to shore up their D on a Cup run, not the kinda guy teams ship out on a Cup run because they are afraid he may be homesick and not return with said Cup after he takes it home for his day in the summer with it.

he's not going anywhere.

Franzen is PlayoffZilla. Not going anywhere.

Cleary will also sacrifice his life for the team during the playoffs, not going anywhere.


#2250254 Datsyuk No 1 Pick for All Star

Posted by T.Low on 27 January 2012 - 12:12 PM

It's awesome that the biggest, most badass, 2nd only to Norris Nick, Stanley Cup, Norris Trophy winning defensemen has such mad respect and hockey love for our very own Pavel Datsyuk that he picks him number one.

You know that Pavel knocking Chara on his ass was the icing on the cake.

#2250121 ASG Draft

Posted by T.Low on 26 January 2012 - 08:54 PM

I just saw the clip on Vancouver news. Chara at the podium, says, "And the first pick of the 2012 NHL All Star Game, I just love the way he plays the game, Pavel Datsyuk". :thumbup:


#2248979 Time for my Cleary update.

Posted by T.Low on 24 January 2012 - 01:00 PM

Well, with that reasoning. I think adding a savvy veteran who has never won a cup before (think Dallas Drake) would pay more dividends than having Cleary skate pedestrian in the post season

But Dallas Drake has won a Cup, here in Detroit as a matter of fact. Plus, he's been retired for a few years already so I think he may be a bit out of shape.

#2245161 Next Captain?

Posted by T.Low on 13 January 2012 - 05:14 AM

Let's say the trade rumors are true (Z and Hudler for Iginla and Camalleri) I still don't know. Pavel seems to be stepping up his leadership presence.

#2244237 Cherry rips Holland

No kidding haha. I have a feeling Kipwinger wasnt watching hockey back in the 90s to see a prime Maltby. He was a top notch agitator and definitely a big hitter.

Notice how he found 0 clips f Miller though?

Miller and Eaves are really good guys and i like them and want them to succeed. But they are vanilla. I don't think they really strike any sort of angst, anxiousness, or irritation into their opponents on game day morning like the Grind Line did.

Because Boston has such a winning record against us? I'm tired of this tough guy garbage. Last playoff run the Wings dished out more hits than the teams we played, and San Jose was a bruising team. Yeah, Boston is tough, but tough isn't what wins. A proper balance of skills wins. I'm not denigrating Boston, they're the best team right now, but in a 7 game series I like our chances still.

EDIT: Like Mick said tonight, Boston didn't win the Cup because of their physicality. They won because Vancouver couldn't score.


The joke in Bean Town after they won the Cup was:
"Hey, what time is it?"
"Nineteen past Luongo"

#2236570 Mike Milbury charged with assault

Posted by T.Low on 16 December 2011 - 06:23 PM

Knowing what we know now about it (not much at all) if he did that to my kid I'd either shake his hand and thank him, or punch him in the nose depending on what exactly happenned. (I've seen him fight, I know I can take him ) If he had it coming to him, then so be it.

At 12 yrs old, there can be a huge size discrepency between kids. If some kid is being an incredible out of control spastic idiot (like the 13 yr old that shot at me while i was paddling a racing kayak then his idiot mom stuck up for him) then I can see an authority figure stepping in for some drastic discipline. There are too many out of control kids because their parents won't do anything about it. (We try to talk to him about it but he just doesn't listen :crybaby: .

And don't get me started on yuppie hockey parents, my God!

My dad never shook any of us, but he sure should have shaken the s*** out of my brother.

I'll be the first one to say he was an idiot if the video shows it.

#2228870 Crosby coming back

Posted by T.Low on 22 November 2011 - 10:21 PM

I just don't understand meanness and the disrespect shown between so many LGW members. It overshadows any of the real discussion and is too bad for the forum. I'm on a few political forums, a couple 4x4 forums, some motorcycle forums, etc, but none of them have the meanness between members that I see displayed here.

And I'm taking into account that on LGW, Sidney Crosby is more polarizing than Obama, The Pope, and abortion.

#2222560 F*** YOU Player X

It's gotten to the point where some of this has to fall on Nick Lidstrom's shoulders; he is the Captain, he is the leader, yet this ship looks rudderless and heartless.

There; I said it.
