#2220490 Brunnstrom on waivers

Posted by T.Low on 31 October 2011 - 11:14 AM

he should have played in place of one of our top six who isnt producing, at least give him a chance..

I would have liked to see Babcock let Cleary sit and heal that upper body injury while Barnstorm skates on the Pavels wing to see what he can do. In hindsight, it couldn't have hurt anything.

#2218970 This team screams for a trade

Posted by T.Low on 27 October 2011 - 03:01 PM

Here's the worrisome thing about this Wings roster: There is/has not been a pure goal scorer. Franzen was a checker turned skillful streaky scorer. Datsyuk has never been a big consistant goal scorer, neither has Zetterberg. Cleary has his moments but that is not his primary game.

That is why I would trade Hudler and Ericsson in a heartbeat for Iginla.

It's weird. One day I look at the roster and wonder where the goals are going to come from. The next day i look at the same roster and smile thinking that any of these guys can go off and score. They are all capable. But none of them have the dogged nose for the net, and scary hard drive the net only focus. Nobody is always hungry around the net ALL the time.

Yes it is hard to find those guys at the lower draft picks the Wings have had in the last 20 yrs. We've done super to get what we've got, no doubt, but that still leaves us with no real natural goal scorer.

#2217677 Back to Back Games

Posted by T.Low on 23 October 2011 - 12:16 PM

Yes the NHL is boneheaded, the scheduling is ridiculous, yada yada yada.

However, to state that you place the blame for the lose on the back to back games with travel is equally as ridiculous.

You would not have been negged if you simply said "it didn't help" rather than being such a Homer as to actually place the blame.

They played 12 to 22 minutes of hockey one night, then had a 1:27 flight from Detroit to DC and had to play again later that evenning, in the same time zone.

Not to mention they've been playing back to backs every Friday & Saturday since they were 15 yrs old. Juniors is almost all back to backs. They're used to playing in Medicine Hat and then riding a crappy old bus to Kamloops for a game the next night, for crying out loud.

Whatever you do, don't give any credit to the undefeated Washington Capitals and their new dedication to Red Wing style hockey, the Red Wing prospects they ended up with in thier lineup, the goalie that kept them in the game, the bad hockey bounces, etc.

God, I hope no other team's fans are looking at this thread.

Jeebus, guys, it's not like they are racing bicycles 135 miles through the Pyrenees and then have to do it again the next day against guys who are fresh! They're top level world class athletes playing 12 to 22 minutes of hockey!

#2217196 Brunnstrom

Posted by T.Low on 22 October 2011 - 12:29 PM

Apparently his knock has been lack of grit and work ethic. Therefore, it would be unwise to give him any type of Prima Donna treatment by instantly inserting him into the top six, even though that is where his type of style fits. He needs to earn it , needs to prove he belongs.

He will have to go the Danny Cleary route of busting his ass and learning to be grittier and then when Hudler is gone next year he may have a spot.

And it's a long season, we always have injuries so space opens up.

I hope he turns into atleast nearly what was initially hoped for back 3 years or so ago.

Also, Babcock and Holland need to take a look at why Ville Leino didn't work and then was instantly successful in Philly. Was just the way it was? Was it something they could have done differently? Was it Detroit vs Philly systems? It would atleast be good to have an idea of the reasonning behind the experience.

Edit: All I've seen of him was him getting knocked around by Toronto in preseason. Unimpressive to say the least. Just sayin...

#2215367 10/15 GDT: Red Wings 3 at Wild 2 (OT)

Posted by T.Low on 15 October 2011 - 04:08 PM

Going to try and watch as much of this as possible, but witht he Tiger's on, they get my priority.

I could have sworn Babs said that Brunnswick was going to start one of these games this weekend?

That's funny. :lol: Simple, but very effective. Thanks.

Edit: I wish he would play soon; I'm anxious to see what he can do, also.

Wings 4 (Helm, Mule, Zetterberg, and HUDLER FOR MAYOR!)

Wild 2 (Setoguccibag and PM Bouchard)

:lol: How have I never seen that before?!! Is that a Hiei original? :clap:

#2215047 Abdelkader pounds Lapierre

Posted by T.Low on 14 October 2011 - 09:55 AM

Nice thread, Esteef. Too bad nobody got the beginning of the fight.

I'm not that familiar with Lapierre, even though I live in Greater Canuckistan. How does he rate comapred to (Door)Matt Cooke? For example, if Cooke is the Benchmark of Douchedom at a 10 rating, would Lapierre be an 8? 7?

#2213670 Tell the Illitch Family to Drop "Presented by Amway"

Posted by T.Low on 09 October 2011 - 04:23 AM

where would the NHL be without beer sponsorship and IMHO, alcohol is worse than a "shady" company.

True. Not too many fans getting in trouble because they crashed their car due to the lifetime supply of shampoo and window cleaner they ended up with in their trunk. Amway>alcohol

#2192272 No, No, NO! Jagr interested in Detroit.

Posted by T.Low on 30 June 2011 - 02:08 AM

He's either BBQing with Brett Farve, or he went to the same place the Sedin twins went to when they were suppossed to be playing Boston in the Finals, wherever the hell that was nobody seems to know either.

Boo hoo.

This spoiled little punk isn't sorry at all. You always get these fake "oh I'm sorry" when they get caught. He is not sorry at all. He is sorry he got caught, and is sorry he is suspended form his polo team. Thats all.

Now he wants sympathy...******* pathetic.

What a little puck *****. I hope someone kicks his ass into next week.

His dad is a surgeon. The family had to "flee town" due to threats. His dad is quoted as saying that the son's actions that night do not show the true character of his son. Sounds to me like dad doesn't know the definition of the word character and maybe that's why the son has none.

If it were my son, he'd be in the apology video all battered and bruised from his mother beating his ass proper.

Usually in Vancouver there is a lot of racial based gang violence, but tonite it's nice to see all the different races uniting as one for the sake of the riot. :ph34r:

I'd have to say it was a toss up between Kesler jersey's and Luongo jerseys present in the riots. The Naslund jersey's should be embarrassed: those guys were too old to be rioting.

#2183932 Thoughts on Sami Salo?

Posted by T.Low on 09 June 2011 - 02:13 AM

I'd say it's implied that we're not just talking about Salo in a vacum, we're talking about him in comparision to other options. If you rip a guy apart like whoever did, I'd hope that you have a better option in mind...and I'd genuinely like to hear about it.

What are your thoughts on free-agent to be Nick Lidstrom??

"He's over the hill, lost a step, hardly ever hits anyone, and is bound to get hurt at almost 40 years old. Six plus million for that!? You've gotta be kidding me!!"

...get my point.

Possibly, if there weren't already 1/2 a dozen threads camparing alternatives, but even then you don't have to give the guy attitude.

But there are 1/2 dozen threads already comparing all available options and combinations, and like I said, you specifically asked about people's thoughts on one player. Don't get mad at him because he answered your question correctly and it made you look stupid; get mad at yourself.

I need to just stay away from your threads because I don't agree with the way you think and your crappy replies you give to people. (Not to mention that wanting Holmstrom on the 4rth line shows you really don't get it--it's never going to be 2002 again--the 4rth line has a different job now, and he can't perform it).) I used to join in all your line threads, because i could look over lines all day long, every day. People would give you crap all the time, but I kept joning in, until you gave me a real unprovoked and uncalled for crappy reply on one of my threads. Now I just think you're a dick that really doesn't understand much about hockey at all, or people for that matter.

#2183919 Thoughts on Sami Salo?

Posted by T.Low on 09 June 2011 - 12:10 AM

bridges the gap to ryan suter next off-season.

seems like a fair proposal to me.

on this board we have, as we have in many other realms on this planet, an incredible surplus of people that love to shoot down others' ideas, and an incredible shortage of people that dare to propose their own.

Your OP only asked for thoughts on Salo, and DetroitFan gave you his thoughts backed up by three sound reasons, and you got mad and pissy with your repsonse.

And further more, it's not bridging a gap until Suter gets here, it's wasting money while Salo sits injured when we could be getting good production out of someone else.

Yes, it's a quandry, but Salo (or Jovo for that matter) is not the answer.

please, feel free to introduce your own, flawless suggestions.

This is why the little punk gets negged all the time. He asks a question then is a prick to you when you don't agree with him.
