#2556845 Do we need a trade to get our offence going ?

Posted by wings87 on 15 December 2014 - 11:09 AM

I have no problem with Darren Helm...as a third line center.  I think in that role he's got a comparative advantage over almost every other third line center in the league.  I also think, in that role, he can take on more defensive responsibility (which he seems good at), thus allowing us to exploit matchups. 
 
Where I don't like Darren Helm, as should be obvious, is on a scoring line wing.  Sure he can be made to look decent there (Ian White could be made to look decent on a top defensive pairing too), but that obscures the fact that his talents are better utilized elsewhere, and somone else (who has the skill set needed to be a top six winger) could be slotted in that spot for maximum efficiency. 
 
But what do I know?  I'm as wrong about the roster as I am right most of the time.  Nevertheless, I'll beat the drum for moving Helm, not because I don't like him, but because he's redundant on this team and we've got a couple of needs to fill to be a true Cup competitor (in my opinion).

It was sarcasm, but I defenitaly agree with you about what Helm's role on the team should be. Although I see him more as a 4th line center. But I would still rather move Andersson, he'll bring back less-but he's completely overshadowed by other players on the team.

You would think that after 5 years of shoot-outs the Wings would have figured it out by now. sad-nope-smiley-emoticon.gif

Hopefully we can continue the high scoring, it's been one of the funnest stretches to watch in a long time.

Yeah, but I was asking more for the double entendre.  Well, I thought it was funny.


I missed it, but I got it now. It was funny.

So how long will it be before Petr gets neutered?  :w00t:


Unless Mrazek starts beating up on forwards, the coaching staff will leave him alone.

Mrazek is so effin aggressive.
I like it.The jets look really quick.


Howard used to be aggressive too, and had an attitude in net. And then the coaching staff neutered him.

#2549166 Malkin hit on Girardi

Posted by wings87 on 16 November 2014 - 02:37 AM

I don't mind seeing it after big hits. Because just like someone said as a player you don't know if it was clean or dirty most of time. But standing up for your teammate is te right thing to do.

I actually hate it more when watching the wings and a dirty play happens and everyone just sits there with their thumb up their ass.


You know if it happened after only big hits I wouldn't have that much of a problem with it but as it stands now it happens after every kind of hit.


#2549155 Las Vegas rumored to get an expansion team

Posted by wings87 on 15 November 2014 - 11:17 PM

This sounds like, "No, really, we're just friends."

 

Then the next week (the day after his divorce is final), "We're engaged!"

 

The league needs a "conscious uncoupling" from uncle Gary.

Love the GDT, fine work as usual. 

 

 

How many goals get taken away tonight?

 

In keeping with the league mandate, I'm guessing 1 goal will be taken away, a phantom penalty will be called, and TV's all over Detroit will pay the consequences.
