#2577854 Pulkkinen sent back to GR

Posted by wings87 on Yesterday, 11:25 PM

His aim is fine in Grand Rapids


He most likely has more time to shoot in GR,and rushes at the NHL which causes him to shoot poorly. So he needs to work on his aim/poise.

On a separate note. How many years now have we heard that Toronto is going to be active at the deadline, and ones again end up doing almost nothing?

 

I liken the Leafs to a friend that keeps claiming how many women he's banged, yet you never see him with these supposed women. The Leafs keep suffering from performance anxiety, and being so backed up is making the franchise cranky.

Leopold traded to Minnesota.

That's freaking precious!

Jordan, you wrote that letter yourself, didn't you? You sly bastard.

Zid trade looks good, the only downside is that the deadline is still hours away and with this trade we have nothing else to look forward to.


#2577100 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Damn, I leave the board for an hour and the place has gone bat s*** crazy.

THIS IS WHY WE CAN'T HAVE NICE THINGS!

The only way the Wings should take Phaneuf is if the Leafs take Weiss. Otherwise he and his bow ties can stay in Toronto.


#2576856 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

Posted by wings87 on 01 March 2015 - 08:19 PM

Don't know if I want 2 36yr olds on the same line ...off the top I think he'd look good maybe on the 3rd with sheahan and maybe pulkkinen?


Pav might be 36 but he's no ordinary 36, the guy is still a top player.

We finally have a guy who can provide space for Pav, and you want to move him to the 3rd line?

I agreed with you on last years overpayment,but this is not over paying. It's a good trade.

I think there's a chance. We'll be in on Petry till the price goes to high, I think we'll be in on Zidlicky too, and if Toronto will take money back probably Dino as well. There's definitely reason to watch tomorrow to see if Kenny goes for it. 


Zidlicky I like, Petry I'm just not big on. I also think there will be some new names we haven't heard about yet, traded tomorrow.


#2576808 Red Wings acquire Erik Cole, conditional 3rd from Stars

So do some of you guys even want to win or what? Kenny gave up 2 prospects who likely were never going to see time in the winged wheel. Cole is 36, have you seen him play? He's not Bertuzzi. He can still skate as well as he ever did, and plays a physical power game.


Completely agree. We can't make trades without giving anyone up, it just doesn't work that way.

I just hope this doesn't turn into another Jarnkrok trade, where these guys are mentioned in every thread. Cole is still a good player and will create lots of space for Pav to maneuver. I call this trade a winner, no matter what happens going forward.

Finally Pav has someone to play with. I just mentioned today that I would love to get Cole, and it happens! Now I want to win the lottery,make it happen Kenny!

What's the short recap on what I missed? I'm guessing we went up 2-0 then some ticky-tack calls led to the deficit.


They sucked on the first two given up, and the refs helped on the third.

On a side note, anyone else sick of Fisher constantly being referred to as Carrie Underwood's husband? I mean we're watching a hockey game, not the E channel, I'm sure everyone knows who Fisher is.

I know the Wings have "composure", but this would be a good time to start losing it. If anyone on the team has any balls, time to show em. 


We have enough problems with Helm being injured, no point in making it worse by having a player get arrested for showing his balls to a full arena.

Wings should move over to HBO,so Mickey can say anything he wants on the telecast.
