there is more distance between Detroit and second place in the west now than there is between second place and 13th place :thumbup:

Detroit will need that gap during December. It's gonna be a tough month, I doubt we'll be able to maintain such figures.

Congrats to Holland for getting rid of the dead-weight.

I don't think the OP got the idea of the article right at all. McKenzie (not MacKenzie) is parodying himself and the rest of the media because they always feel like they are right, or know more - but in reality, they are just like the fans - they THINK they know better than the league executives, but really they don't.

McKenzie is a great analyst, probably the most respected by league executives and players alike. Not to mention - he has a hard on for the Wings, and ALWAYS picks them to either make the finals or win the Cup. He seems like the only one on TSN to ever give the Wings their proper due, and I respect him for that, among other things.

I don't even care about his thoughts on the Wings. What I love about him is his hockey knowledge across not only the NHL, but NCAA, CHL and AHL, is second to none. He's not too opinionated and doesn't critique teams like an ex-pro or something, but still seems to make better predictions than most ex-pro experts.

I agree, I think the OP mighta read the article hungover or something because he's just so far off-base it's not funny.

What a great article! Not his best, but a great article nonetheless.

Bob McKenzie is possibly the best and most humble hockey writer today. Not to mention his scoops are always 100% reliable.

#2062443 Crosby looking lethal

Posted by Doggy on 13 November 2010 - 06:50 AM

At 0:45, when the camera zooms closer to the net, the net moves before the puck makes contact. Not only is it fake, but its not even faked well.

Reebok sucks, and Crosby is still a ******.

I think the puck was supposed to have hit the post and then the net, which is why it looks that way. Not suggesting it's real, but there was no mistake made there. It clearly hits the bar, the net moves, then hits the twine.

Good streams? Sorry, didn't go back through posts to find streams.

That's a lot of searching. Anyone want to help out with streams?

#2061516 "Smith is NHL Ready" - Ken Holland

Posted by Doggy on 11 November 2010 - 07:05 PM

So... What are you waiting for Mr.Holland? This is what obviously differs red wings' from other franchises, any other franchise would let Smith play in their lineup but not kenny... yeah yeah they've had alot of success by keeping ready players in the AHL, but 15mins a night in the NHL would develope Smith quiet a lot as well...i'm certain of it.

I totally misunderstood you, Mindfly.

I used to think you were a troll, and I'm sure on some occasions that was true of you. But after reading your input in this thread it has become painfully obvious. You are just indescribably stupid.

#2056065 Datsyuk stay at home defesneman?

Posted by Doggy on 01 November 2010 - 06:43 PM

except the story is from detroit

Uhhhh yes that's right. The game was played in Detroit so that's where the story is coming from.

It's Detroit's fault a writer from The Tenesseean thought Datsyuk was a defenseman?

#2053539 Mike Babcock puts third line on notice

Posted by Doggy on 27 October 2010 - 09:28 PM

I'm really worried that Modano is going to get benched, say it's not what he signed up for, and because he was already close to retiring call it quits mid-season.

If that were to happen, that'd be a positive thing. Someone who gives up that easily is not required for a Stanley Cup run. Passion, commitment and sacrifice are required and a prima donna who quits that easy has none of that.

#2042056 Abdelkader out, Bertuzzi questionable for tomorrow's opener

Posted by Doggy on 08 October 2010 - 03:09 PM

Yet being able to call up Maltby, on the same salary as Ritola, makes sense how...

Maltby had to clear waivers too, dude. Someone had to be sent down, we were at our roster limit. Ritola (and Maltby) just couldn't cut it when given the chance. How many chances does he need?

You make it sound like Maltby was a preference over Ritola.

#2041854 Abdelkader out, Bertuzzi questionable for tomorrow's opener

Posted by Doggy on 08 October 2010 - 07:04 AM

Why the HECK didn't we put Draper/Abby on short term IR and give Ritola a week to prove himself? Gosh. :ranting:

Because of the salary cap.

#2030330 Kirk Maltby nearing 1 year, 2 way deal

Posted by Doggy on 31 August 2010 - 03:23 AM

I'm fine if its a two way deal... welcome back malts


Why would a fan possibly care if it's a two-way deal or not? Do you pay his salary?

#2028293 GDT logo

Posted by Doggy on 22 August 2010 - 04:28 PM

Okay. I don't want to step on any toes here. You did a great job with the GDT's last season. I'll see how it goes. But with all this in mind, perhaps I might not be the most appropriate person to take care of this stuff?

Just leave the logos on. Matt's cool with it and that's all that matters. You've probably put in dozens of hours of work into this and you deserve credit. They look great and are the main reason I began to frequent your blog last season.

HT001, to be frank, you're lucky these images are being offered to you at all. From the outside looking in, one might think you're trying to get all the credit for someone elses hard work, and that's why you want his logos removed.

#2017919 Antti Niemi files for arbitration

Posted by Doggy on 22 July 2010 - 12:29 AM

Thanks eva, I figured you had the definitive word. how about after arby? should they come to terms, can he be traded this season?

I can't imagine Niemi being slotted below Halak or Rinne. I bet it goes *at least* $3.5M. Wouldn't the Hawks problem be worsened if Huet was rostered? sure I barely grasp that +10% cap offseason overage concept... but i'd imagine carrying his $5.6M cap hit surely is going to hurt more than the benefit of his play will offset.

Arbitration is just a way of settling contract disputes for RFA's. It's not a special type of contract. A player whose contract was agreed to after arbitration is no different to any other player whose contract was not. Arbitration just gives the two sides a number.

So unless they agree to a contract with a NTC, yes they can trade him.

The only thing I can think of that may have confused you is offer sheets. A player signed on a matched offer sheet can't be traded for a year I think.
